FOX NESTS-- IN A TREE.

On Wednesday last while Mr. James Slaven was out hunting near Wistow (writes The Mount Barker Courier) he noticed unusually large scratches on a tree and on looking up he espied a round hole quite 20 ft. from the ground. Being rather curious to know what the scratches meant Mr. Slaven scaled the tree, and to his astonishment, found a large vixen in the hole. Descending, Mr. Slaven procured his gun, and threw stones up into the hole. The fox soon left its place of abode, and a well-directed shot from the watchful hunter brought it to earth. Four young foxes were discovered in the nest and promptly dispatched.
