"J Tlio Bowsers had Just finished dinner
jwhen the basement hell rang, and a
Juluute later a discussion was hoard
between the cook and n small boy who
had a dog ut his heels. Mr. Uow&er
hurried down stairs and was absent
.for a quarter of nu hour. When ho re
turned, Mrs. llow.ser looked at him In a
'way that called for an explanation,
and he explained:
"It was a boy with a dog. I have
shut the do? up in the shed."
"But what do we want of n dog?"
"Nothing, my dear. Have you ever
noticed how many homeless dogsthero
arc iu the streetV"
.. "No; I never did."
.' "I didn't suppose you had, knowing
how rrlllsh and cold hearted you are;
"but I have. At this very mlnuto thcro
are probably 1,000 friendless, homeless
dogs wandering about the city."
""Aral is that our fault i"
"In ono way. no. In another way, we
have a duty to perform. As human
beings as men and women with souls
.and hearts we should take heed of the
sufferings of the brute creation. What
Is more Fad than to. see a poor dog
skulking About In fear and hunger?
That ho is an outcast and outlaw Is
?iot his fault. The world owes him n
llvlnsr, the Fame ns it dotM a man. Hu
manity owes him food and kind treat
"l'orlraps you are going to found a
dog asylum?" asked Mrs. Uowser after
"Vow have lilt it exactly," he replied,
nsTllTc .caf'enmo out "from undor the
A NIP AND
lounge and sniffed tho atmosphere ns
If sho suspected the presence of a
-canine. "Yes, ma'am, I have establish
ed a home for friendless dogs, and It
.already lias an occupant. I have ar-
ranged with several boys to bring me
every friendless dog they win dud.
Kach canine shall have bed and board
for a couple of weeks at least, and I
have no fear that the public will not
take them off my hands. You 'are not
.with me In the charity, of course, but
.3 shall carry It through just the same.
There goes, the bell, and hat means
Mr. Bowser opened the door to find
another boy and another dog. He was
paying the lad and giving 'him words
-ef praise at tho same time when the
family cat, which had followed him
-flown stairs, took a hand in. With a
yeowl and a howl she lit on tho dog'3
back, and for-two or three minutes
Mr. Bowser, the boy, the Uog and the
cat were all mixed up'. Then tho cat
retreated, and the dog was conducted
to the asylum.
"rhwat's all this about?" demanded
the cook, as Mr. Bowser returned
through the kitchen.
"My dear woman, i am being kind
to homolosij dogs," ho replied.
"And are others to conic?"
"I hope so. Yes, f ' cm in hopes to
p'ck up about CO more.f.
"Then I quits my job. in tlie'ittorn'n!
I 'have never yet worked in a dog asy
nm, and, please heave':)) 1 never- will!
No use to talk to me, sir. I can stand
a cet or two a;'buui1, and I cmi put up
Y;Ith a canty man, but I'm no lady
assistant In a d.ig aay'iuu.''
"-it "I sivijwise jr.'ve been couspVrlnu'
with the gill," c::;ld Mr. Bowser, as he-,.-,iot
back up stairs. "But she garvqult
and be hanged to her. I know I a;n'
light In this thing. I know .that' my
. ciurse Is dictated by the sentimont o,f
mercy, and thi' d-vi asylum shall go oi

Tho dog was found among kthoso In
the shed, and tho woman went away
muttering and scolding. Sho had not
been gouo ten minutes, and Mr. Bow
ser was about to lock up for the night,
when the doorbell was almost jerked
out by the roots. It was a man this
, time. Ho pushed his way into th hull,
I and, shaking his ftst under Mr. Bow
ser's nose, ho shouted:
"You mjsernblo old dog thief, but I
Bin going to drlvo your head through

i tamnierlng query.
"Tho matter Is that you are encour

"My dear man"
"Trot him out, I Eay!"
The asylum was visited and the miss

wondering over tho wickedness of his

"Never!" ho shouted In reply. "I set
out to establish a home, nnd I'll do It
or perish In tho attempt!"
At that moment the sounds of an aw
ful racket camo up from the shed. The
seven dogs left had euteivd into a bat
tle royal, and tho noise was ono to
arouse the whole neighborhood. Mr.
Bowser dashed down stairs and out In
to the yard, and In unother second he
had the door of the shed open, lie was
going to yell at the dogs and stop tho

20 men nnd boys were on hand, nnd
one of them had wit enough to lot the

A LOVE AFFAIR,
tltlt Nnthlnn ot n Uomnntto ISntllnir,
Ho was a young mau as some young
men arc who.oro everlastingly paying
their devoirs to pretty girls and never
reaching any detlnlto business conclu
sion. A man Hko that learns exactly what
a girl thinks of hln, and when ho finds
It is favorable, own to matrimony, ho
logins to hedge, and after a few pain
ful struggles of a clicked Cupid the af
fair Is all over, and the girl wonders
whatever she was such an idiot for,
whllo the man lnughs softly to him
self nnd seeks fretth Holds nnd pastures
Bcally thero ought to bo a law against
It, aud If Judge Lynch would Intervene
now and then It would clear the atmos
phere. But public ecutimeut lsu't suffi
ciently educated yet, and wo must wait
awhile for tho needed reform.
How.over, nil girls are not the same,
and the one of this chroulclo was dif
ferent, though the young man was like
those referred to.
Ho had-boon paying assiduous court
to her for six months, and It is'not to
bo denied that she. liked it. Most well
balanced girls do, and nobody can or
wants to censure them for It. He was
not quite sure where he stood In her
affections, and ho was anxious to know,
so ho proceeded In the usual fashion.
Only this time the girl wasn't an Idiot.
"What would you do, Fannie," ho
said In his pleasant offhand way, "If a
fellow should tell you he loved you ?"
"That would depend," she responded
with a llttlf flutter of sho didn't exactly
"Depend on what'"' ho Inquired.
"Oh, on a good many things," she
said lather weakly.
"And suppose he wore to nsk you to
marry Him V' he asked next, concluding
that promptness was tho soul of dis
patch. "That would depend, too," sho an
"On what?" And ho became very
"Well, you aslc mo to marry you and
see," she said so forcibly that he was
disconcerted to the point of utter rout,
and ho has been, kicking himself ever
since, for he learned afterward that
the girl was worth $100,000 in her own
right, and he might have won her. De

Hester 1 was with brother Fred last

young men who are nt tho college. I
called Fred "brother" quite loud, so
that no one of the young men would
think he was my beau.

Hester hasn't yet got over wondering
whether Hettle meant It wns absurd
that Fred should be taken for her beau
or that It was ubsurd that sho should
have a beau at all. Boston Transcript.
