THE "QUORN" SCARF
The celebrated "QUORN" Hunting Scarf was first patented and introduced by Messrs. Turnbull & Asser, and, in spite of many imitations, it still retains its hold on popular favour. They attribute this to the fact that the Scarf, whilst being neat and smart in appearance, has no unnecessary complications and is perfectly easy and simple to adjust

Its pursuit puts us to greater expence, and also to greater inconvenience, than any other;
