THE SCENT OF BLOOD


sheaves. The standing corn was a patch along the hill, side some fifty paces in length, and ten or so in width.
' I didn't think there 'd have been any in,' said the father, picking up a short rake, and going to the low wall of the corn. We all followed.
'Watch,' said the father, 'if you see the heads of the corn shake.'
We prowled round the patch of corn.
`Hold! Look out!' shouted the father excitedly, and immediately after a rabbit broke from the cover.
'Ay-ay-ay!' was the shout, 'turn him-turn him!' We set off full pelt. The bewildered little brute, scared by Leslie's wild running and crying, turned from its course, and dodged across the hill, threading its terrified course through the maze of lying sheaves, spurting on in a painful zigzag, now bounding over an untied bundle of corn, now swerving from the sound of a shout. The little wretch was hard pressed; George rushed upon it. It darted into some fallen corn, but he had seen it, and had fallen on it. In an instant he was up again, and the little creature was dangling from his hand.
We returned, panting, sweating, our eyes flashing, to the edge of the standing corn. I heard Lettie calling, and turning round saw Emily and the two children entering the field as they passed from school.
'There's another!' shouted Leslie.

I headed him off to the father, who swept in pursuit for a short distance, but who was too heavy for the work. The little beast made towards the gate, but this time Mollie, with her hat in her hand and her hair flying, whirled upon him, and she and the little fragile lad sent him back again. The rabbit was getting tired. It dodged the sheaves badly, running towards the top hedge. I went after it. If I could have let myself fall on it I could have caught it, but this was impossible to me, and I merely prevented its dashing through the hole into safety. It raced along the hedgebottom. George tore after it. As he was upon it, it
