After the cry of the hounds came the deep tones of the wolf call from Daniel's hunting horn; the pack joined the first three hounds and they could be heard in full cry
, with that peculiar lift in the note that indicates that they are after a wolf.
We struck the enclosure about the middle of the south side, and almost at the same time, seven mutineers--Job Anderson, the boatswain, at their head--appeared in full cry
at the southwestern corner.
This occurred with great frequency, for, once in full cry
, the dogs were prone to forget themselves in the excitement of the chase, while White Fang never forgot himself.
Presently the party, in full cry
after an old blackbird (who was evidently used to the thing and enjoyed the fun, for he would wait till they came close to him, and then fly on for forty yards or so, and, with an impudent flicker of his tail, dart into the depths of the quickset), came beating down a high double hedge, two on each side.
Suddenly from behind I heard a tumult of howls, and sharp, piercing barks--much the sound that a pack of wolves raises when in full cry
. Involuntarily I glanced backward to discover the origin of this new and menacing note with the result that I missed my footing and went sprawling once more upon my face in the deep muck.
"Father's off with the governor in the gig, and the runners in hiding outside are in full cry
Murder!" Jem Spyers dashes out; and there he sees Chickweed, a-tearing down the street full cry
. Away goes Spyers; on goes Chickweed; round turns the people; everybody roars out, "Thieves!" and Chickweed himself keeps on shouting, all the time, like mad.
Edwards started, as a full cry
broke on his ear, changing from the distant sounds that were caused by some intervening hill, to confused echoes that rang among the rocks that the dogs were passing, and then directly to a deep and hollow baying that pealed under the forest under the Lake shore.
A tremendous yell let him know that the whole pack of bloodhounds were off in full cry
. Colter flew rather than ran; he was astonished at his own speed; but he had six miles of prairie to traverse before he should reach the Jefferson Fork of the Missouri; how could he hope to hold out such a distance with the fearful odds of several hundred to one against him!
In a second the whole team was in full cry
. A hundred yards away was a camp of the Northwest Police, with fifty dogs, huskies all, who joined the chase.
But the merry lot below were still yelling and bellowing in full cry
line, and so off full cry
in the moonlight over the moor.
