A Cunning Old Fox
There was one old fox which for a period of several years had continually evaded the fleetest and keenest scented hounds, the scent invariably being lost in the vicinity of a house situated in the woods and far removed from any habitation, and which was used as a storehouse for pelts. At last one of the hounds started the old fox, and away he went in the direction of the house, with a pack of young hounds in full cry after him; but on nearing the house he disappeared, leaving the hounds and hunters nonplused as usual.
While the hunters were gathered in and around the house discussing the frequent mysterious disappearance of the fox, an old veteran hound came limping up, and entering the door, set up a furious barking, and tried to jump up on the wall. His singular action attracted the attention of the hunters, and, an examination being made, the old fox was found suspended by his tail to a nail in the wall, keeping perfectly still, and looking, unless closely observed, like the pelts with which the walls were hung. This plainly showed that the old fox, when too closely pressed, had taken refuge in the house and hung himself up on the nail by his tail, which was the reason for the dogs always losing the scent at that particular place.
