The foundation for the talk about W.
II. Vanderbilt advancing United Suites
lmnds to ease the money market, is that
a bank offered to borrow from him $10,
000,000 in United States four per cent,
bonds, which he holds, advancing thereon
the lull market price, about $1:2,000,000,
and charging him for tho money advancod
a low rate of interest. It is understood
this offer of tho bank is part of a scheme
to have Unitod States internal revenue
receipts deposited in tho bank, which
wonld give the bonds borrowed from
Vanderbilt to tho government as security
for internal revenuo receipts on govern
ment money thus left with it. Two pur
poses would bo served by tho ojwratiou.
The first would bo that the money, in
stead of being locked up in the treasury,
would bo diverted from its way from the
treasury of the national bank, whero it
could be leut iu the market, and the
other, which would concern tho bauk
alone, wou'd be the profits which it could

horseman coming up from behind
pusses at a quick walk over the prostrate
bodies. This is called the Dosch, or
"trampling." Each man receives the
full pressure of tho iron-shod hoof in tho
small of his back, and not a few may bo

pageant is over the friends and relatives
of the trampled men rush up to them

that they have received no injury from

tioo. Tbe mere tliooting of a wary old red fox
is of iUelf no glory when It is only a simple
quwlion of mtrkiuiuuhip, bnt when every,
thing In connection with its capture is taken
into account, the hunter prondly fceli bit iuc-
omi ii born of no mean skill. When I speak
of iUooting t fox, I imagine I tee a frown on
the fice of Pioui Jeemt, and other diaciplet of
tbe cbue who lire iu a country whore follow
inK houndi without burses would be u great a
farce m keeping house without a cook ttove;
but uuntinK fuxo in tho "land of cotton" is
one thing, and hunting foxei in the "Und of

The facile txiu of Pious Jecmt hu not ore r

outlt, for I lute myctlf followed many a
"gnr" on a thoroughbred, and on a mule, too,
and I know that oue't hopes of a iuocenful
chase, la the fullest meaning of the word, are
more likely to be realized than they aro to be
blasted; but to follow a pack of bounds after a
red fox in roKSMl New England, it simply out
of the question. It is true that portions of
thatcouutrr are not too still tor good bono
and good riders, but there the hunter, would
no; be likely to Hod any foxes to follow.
Where foxes abound, fields are niall, and sur
rounded bv treacherous stone walls; swamp

An fox after he is bii; enough to care for
himself, shows an amount ot cuuuing that is
remarkable, but there are a great many de
gree of cunning iu foxo. As a class, the
hew England red outranks any I have ever
met, and a three or four year old male, ac
quainted with bounds, is io October or No
vember, the very essence of cunning intensi
fied. I captured one of this class a uuuiber of
years af;o, and so bard bad I worked to get a
shot at him, that the glory I felt In seeing him
laid low is not to be sketched on paper. I had
followed him for three years at every season of
tbe year, under all conditions of weather, with
fast hounds, slow hounds, and with relays of
bounds, but only onee, nndor the variety ol
circumstances that I had given him chase, did
1 get bun within ranco of inr shot gun. Oth
ers beaidei the writer had followed him many
a day to no purpose, and so notoriously cun
ning was he that all the fox-hunters of the
neighborhood shunned him, as it was long
odds against a day's sport when the doga
struck tbe trail of the "Old Dog Fox of Hack
stone," a name by which be was known for
miles around the country where he made his
haunts. I never started him on a day so hot
that he could not send the best hound in the
pack to the shade far in his rear, and I bad an
account against bim for one valuable, bound

out of burner with old Jack for covering so lit
tle ground, were ou the poiut of giving up the
nunt in disgust.
"It serves us right," said Horace, "for do-
pending on that lazy old rascal ; he never was
of any use in starting a fox."
It is a retribution for leaving poor little
Tommy at home, when he wanted to go to
badly," said Biily.
lou are both right," I replied, "and 1 11
promise never to go fox hunting again with
out Tom. I!ut there is no use fretting over the
matter; let's sit down, and whilo we are rest
ing we can arrango for"
Look at Jack! said Billy, and we were on
our feet in an instant, intently watching the
hound iudustriously working out a trail down
What do yon niako of it?" Inquired both.
Wby he's got a fox trail" said I, "sure, and
as toon as he gets out of the sandy road and
over the wall iuto the woods, we shall bare
some music. I think is a young one that has
taken a trot down the road out of pnre curios
ity: it is a good track, I know, from the inter
est Jack shows iu it.'1 Instead of going into
the woods on tho right. Jack jumped the wall
wall on the left, and went away over the frost
covered pasture in full cry. We could not un
derstand the trail giiug off that way, and nat
nrally were at a loss what to think of it.
"I guess it's a young one gono to the brook
for a drink," said Billy, "and while Jack is
getting around ou the trail to where the young
fcllo lies in the woods, let us each get ou a
stand so as to be ready for him when he comes
"But Jack is already across the brook," said
Horace, "'and going direct toward Hack stone."
"Tbat settles it," said I, "it't tho 'Old Dog
Fox,' so we may as well follow on, and, as we
go, arrange which of hit runways each of us
The giing was so good, that Jack moved
right along on the trail at his best gait, with
out once making a balk, and before we could
get to our stands Jack had tbo fox on his feet.
Old Jack and tba fox bad become pretty
thoroughly acquainted with each other, and
we knew that as soon as the fox discovered
that Jack was alone, he would just play around
home with him until ho was tired of the sport,
when ho would take a trip eff and lose him
Billy bad gone on to guard one corner of the
pasture and woods, whilo I was to put Horace,
Mho was not familiar with the ruuwavs, at a
stand. Now Horace was something of a "ten
dcr-foot," and as the boots he wore "fitted
nun a littlo too mncn, lie was hardly as
swift of foot as the ntcjssities of tho caso de
manded, and bef uro we got to what was to be
bis stand, we beard Jack driving ou through
tlio woods in that direction.
"It's no use to try to get thero now," said I,
"for ho will reach the point ahead of us; hurrv
along, and wo may get to the other corner of
the woods whero be will come out into the
pasture for a run iu the opcu and ou the stone
Hardly had I finished, when wc caught sight
of a lithe, red figure, as it popped up upon the
wall, aud looked back in the direction of the
hound. After standing like a statue for a mo
ment, down he came iuto the open, aud gave
us a full view of his graceful figure. The
sight ot the fox had put new life into Horace,
ami offeamo his coat, hat and boots, and he
was ready to get to the next stund in short or
der. As au started tho fox had again turned
into the wood, and unlesa we made haste wo
would not reach our stand in time. Wo had
got half way, when wo knew from the sound of
old Jack's voice that hu had made another
tnrn, and as he Deemed to be working along
toward tho point we wished to reach, wo com
eluded to stop. We wero a, .out five hundred
yards from the stand, and by carefully work
ing our way along a wall wo could get into a
field two hundred yards from the runway; then
we could Wait and take the chance of his com
ing to us. Wo had just crossed the wall iuto
the field, when we saw the f 'X come out of tlio
corn r if the woods, jump tip on the wall,
then off agaiu, tlieu back on the wall.
"Now you go to the wall behind us, and
crawl down to the barway and wait for him,
whilo I go to yonder tree, and I guess ono or
the other of us will get a shot at bim, when ho
pets ready to leave this field. Take plenty of
time," said I. "for you have not far to go."
But not a word or a move from Horace.
There be was oh one foot and one knee, with
his gnu in his hands, intently watching the
fox, as staunch as a poiuteron a bevy of quails.
He was so thoroughly fascinated ' with the
graceful movements of the fox, the music old
Jack was making, and the thought of getting a
shot at the notorious fox, tbat ho could not
speak. So thoroughly was be intoxicated with
the spor t, that he seemed oblivious to every
thing around him but tho fox and the music of
the hound. This was no time for argument.
and as I, too, was a little nervous, I concluded
to make for tho tree which was onlv a few
yards off, and wait patiently for the fox to
come. This he seemed iu no hurry to do, for
he was running up and down the walls, jump
ing oft and cutting up all sorts of pranks for
the benefit of Jack when he should come along.
After he cut the ground nn prettv well iu all
directions, he deliberately jumped upon the
wall, and sat down m watch for Jack who
would pass within tiftv yards of him. Along
came the honnd. and quietly sat tho fox watch
ing nim pass, .ri. r feeing Jack piuzvle over
the grouiid he had so nicely prepared tor his
bene'it. he started straight toward us.
I whisiiered to Horace: "Cock vour khu.
and ;;ive it to bim afier h passes me." But
Horace did not move, and it seemed as if hu
held his bn-ath. so thoroughly was hefasciua
