The idea of some ghastly presence constantly haunted him, and on more than one occasion he has asked me whether I had on my medical journeys at night ever seen any strange creature or heard the baying
of a hound.
As darkness sank again over land and sea, there came another sound; far away in the passes of the hills behind them the guns spoke like the baying
of great hounds.
The tongues of the pursuers were hanging out; the baying
of them was horrible.
But here were intermingled the voices of later eras--the scream of the panther, the roar of the lion, the baying
of wolves and a thunderous growling which we could attribute to nothing earthly but which one day we were to connect with the most fearsome of ancient creatures.
He had heard the baying
of the hound some minutes before, and suddenly, across the bare face of the hill above him, he saw a large buck in flight.
