Bloodhounds

Bloodhounds.

Mr. William Buchanan, writing to the London Times, says: - "Just now, perhaps, my own personal experience of what bloodhounds can do in the way of tracking criminals may be of interest. Here, then, is an incident to which I was an eye-witness. In 1861 or 1862 (my memory does not enable me to give a more exact date), I was in Dieppe when a little boy was found doubled-up in a horse-bin with his throat cut from ear to ear. A couple of bloodhounds were at once put on the scent. Away they dashed after for a moment or two sniffing the ground, hundreds of people, including the keeper and myself, following in their wake; nor did the highly-trained animals slacken in their pace in the least till they had arrived at the other end of the town, when they made a dead stop at the door of a low lodging-house, and, throwing up their noble heads, gave a deep bay. On the place being entered, the culprit - an old woman - was discovered hiding under a bed. Let me add that the instinct of a bloodhound, when properly trained for tracking by scent, is so marvellous that no one can say positively what difficulties in following a trail it cannot surmount."
