Alice and Gary Holmes: A Christmas Story?

By Owen and Janice Collins

Last week we wrote about foxhunting and the loyalty and camaraderie of that group of persons, and pointed out that Gary Holmes has many of the same character traits as they,  relating how his father, Clyde,  had bristled at a couple of men who had killed a half grown fox with a sheep bell which he and a buddy had tied around its neck. This characteristic of foxhunters was further corroborated by a prominent citizen of Pendleton County who said that his father told him he knew of a man who had his tobacco bed sowed with timothy rye grass because he had killed a fox.
