called the score seven and seven, and
announced that the race would be run

acceptable to tho owners of Grace Rock

overrule the decision of the Judge, but
most of the coursing men entered in the
meet declared a Judges ruling shall
stand as final.

then suddenly Grace Rockwell passed her
opponent and pounced down upon tne ran
bit and made the kill.
