Hero Dog Will Have Memorial Win» Fight With Fox While Pinned Between Boulders Under Ground. Woodruff, S. C.— Ring, most fnmous foxhound In the world, is dead. With in twenty-four hours after being res cued from six days’ captivity In a deep cave Into which he had chused and killed a huge red fox the gallant old dog’s stout heart ceased to beat. Like the lamented Floyd Collins, old Ring found the subterranean dampness more than his Iron con stitution could endure. Ring con tracted pneumonia while pinioned be tween two sharp boulders that pre vented him from leaving the under ground chamber he had entered In pursuit of his enemy, and despite the tender ministrations of veterinarians and his master, R. V. Kelly, wealthy farmer and fox hunter, the famous animal died In the home he had known and loved for seven years. An Anniversary. Did fate Indulge In a strange whim? It seems so, for It was on the second anniversary of the finding of Floyd Collins’ body that old Ring was res cued. Ring breathed his last surrounded by his partners In hundreds of thrill Ing fox hunts. Gathered about their stricken comrade, these foxhounds seemed to sense the tragedy impend Ing. Strong men stood about the room and wept unashamed as Ring's broad muscular chest emitted Its final con vulsive gasp and then remained mo tionless. Tender hands laid the gallant old foxhound to rest on the old plantation two miles from Woodruff. A suitable memorial will be erected later over the little mound. A thousand dollars was spent willingly In freeing the old fox hound from his subterranean prison and another large sum will be expend ed to provide an appropriate marker for Ring's last resting place. Hundreds of men worked day and night to rescue the dog. which chased a fox Into the cave, killed the animal after a terrific struggle and then be came wedged between two boulders forty feet under ground. The only opening to the cavern was too small to permit a human being to enter, and It was necessary to use dynamite ns well as picks and shovels In order to sink a shaft forty feet through rock and earth to effect the dog’s rescue. Ring barked intermittently through out his long imprisonment under ground, apparently with the Intention of encouraging the crowds of sympa thetic workmen laboring tp rescue him. But the Joyous, half-ehnHenging note was missing from Ring's typical ly foxhound yelp. At ten o’clock on the night of Thurs day, February 10, Ring was trapped In the cave. It was Saturday, Feb ruary 12, when a boy chancing to pass the cave heard a dog, evidently In distress, barking. It was 3:00 a. m. Thursday, February 17, when a shovel pierced the barrier above the Imprisoned dog and perndtted the rays of a flashlight to reveal an exhausted but supremely happy foxhound. Freed From Prison. Strong hands freed Ring from his prison. A moment later a gaunt, yel low foxhound, his hairy coat damp with underground moisture, was raised to the surface o f the ground and de positing In the waiting arms of his owner, R. Vandy Kelly, wealthy bach elor and noted foxhunter of Wood ruff. Through lips that quivered with emotion Mr. Kelly shouted. “ Boys, It Is worth $1,000,000 to see old Ring again The entire countryside hurried to the cave, two miles from Woodruff when It became known that Ring was caught In a trap. Men. women and children assembled on the steep hillside. Ring was one o f a dozen fine fox hounds taking part In a fox hunt on the night of Thursday, February 10. Half a dozen hunters had assembled at the home of the Kelly brothers for the chase. Into a peaceful little valley, bathed In the mellow glow of a full moon, the pack o f hounds dashed In search of their age-old enemy. Suddenly one of the dogs emitted a deep yelp. Indica tive of the discovery of the desired quarry. The pack took up the trail and soon straightened out in a race that extended for approximately oue mile. “That fox Is headed for the old fox den on Dlldlne creek.” remarked one o f the hunter*, “ and he'll make It be fore the dogs get near him." A Deep Cava. The old fox den I* In a deep cave on the banks of Dlldlne creek. The hunter's prediction came true. The wily old fox, howeve-, failed to take Into consideration that one of the d+ge on his trail was a veteran of seven years’ experience, not to be confused or daunted, by any eohrer fuge In Reynard's repertoire. Within * , fcwni|eet of the f01’* tall yelped wlth 'he joy of the chase rb< fos- a magnificent specimen ru<hed Into the tiny opening to the cave. Scarcely a foot behind, how ever. Ring plunged madly onward, eliher unaware or contemptuous of the proximity of the fox’s haven. The old dog’s rush carried him nearly 40 feet Into the blackness of the cavern. Suddenly hie- body became wedged be tween two sharp boukiers. It was Im possible to push forward or to retrace his steps. He was trapped, and both dog and fox realized what had oc curred. At the mouth of the cavern bayed a dozen disgusted, bullied foxhounds. Around them stood half a dozen disap pointed hunters, facing the painful realization that another wily Reynard had made his escape Into the old hole that hud caused muny fox hunts to end in ( disgust. None of the hunters noted that old Ring was missing from the pack of hounds yelping at the black entrance to the cave, and after a few minutes the hunters culled the hounds uud left the scene. Inside the Inky blackness of the cave, with no other living soul to see, two animals staged a drama. The fox realized that his enemy was in dire distress. His sharp eyes told him that Ring could neither advance nor re- treut, therefore could not parry blows. Sharp yelps from the pinioned enemy told him that Ring was In excruciat ing pain. Desperately the old dog tried to press forwurd, hut every pain ful attempt only wedged his body more tightly between the sharp boul ders. An Opportunity. Here was an opportunity to avenge many old scores. The fox, confident that he could thrash the Imprisoned dog, advanced to the attack. But he did not know the caliber of the vet eran foxhound he sought to destroy. With the cunning born of long expe rience and the ferocity born of des peration, Ring bared his white, stil etto-like teeth and prepared to up hold the treasured tradition« of his ancestors. Again and again the long tusks of the fox penetrated the old dog’s head, but Ring was fighting to the deuth and he fought craftily, con serving his strength. Finally the cov eted opening came. The old foxhound sank his long teeth Into the soft, hot, palpitating throat of his foeman. The battle was over. Blood gush ing from his wound, the fox slunk far ther back into the narrow passageway —to die. Tuesday night, February 15. work men uncovered the bloody body of the fox. Every man at *he cave realized that a tragedy had taken place fui down in the bowels of the earth. Up through the fissures between the layers of limestone came the trium phant voice of King, hurling a chat lenge and yet containing a pitiful plea for aid. One long tooth was missing from the fox’s mouth, conclusive evidence that Iting Uud uet-n paiiituit) It uoi seriously wounded in the tight !u the cave. A few odume* after midnight Wed riesday. FUiruiiry 10, It becun»* evl dent that the shaft being sunk into the cavern would reach the prisoner In a few hours, and anxious eyes peered into the hole for a glimpse ol Ring. A flashlight playing in the black depths of the tunnel revealed a yellow tail, wagging joyously. The dog that had been a prisoner for six days was at last in sight of his res cuers. The Inrush of air told old Ring that his period of painful captivity was almost ended. He harked feebly, but with a voice vibrant with Joy. At 3:45 o'clock Thursday morning Ring scrambled out of his prison and his yelping re-echoed through the little valley until it was drowned amid the deafening cheers of the hundreds who had gathered to witness the hounds liberation. * A rucking cough shook Ring's gaunt body. He had contracted u serlou> cold In the dampness of the cavern I’neumonla threatened. Ring's eyes were feverish und al most filled with dirt, hut they scanned the faces about the brink of the shaft. He was looking for his master. Vandy Kelly, and a second later the old fox hound was licking the face he loved more than any other. Harvey Kelly took the weary animal In his arms und strode across the hills to the Kelly home, a mile distant, where a bowl of warm milk awaited the homecoming. Safe at home. Ring collapsed. Ills gaunt frame shivered with the rav ages of pneumonia. He refused food, but lapped eagerly at bowls of wuter placed before him. He yelped no more, his fever-ridden lungs unHhle to function normally, and those min isterlng to the old foxhound realized that the end was near.
