HUNTERS ALL: A ROLL CALL OF THE HOUNDS () National Geographic society Painting Dy tawara nererrt iviner BLOODHOUNDS ARE MAN HUNTERS, YET THEY RANK AMONG THE MOST DOCILE OF DOGS Their job is to track down the quarry, not to attack him; they would be more likely to lick his hand. So mild-mannered is this breed that old-time producers of " Uncle Tom's Cabin" often substi tuted Great Danes to give an appearance of ferocity. Highly respected are the remarkable scenting powers of this long-eared, sad-eyed sleuth, and its identification of a criminal is accepted as evidence in courts of law. Once a bloodhound led detectives 138 miles-and found its man. Another success fully followed a trail more than four days old.
