ll iny aniiiuinliiilcc, who litis it woil-
' rained H'pittntlon for hci upuuxia
cxactltmle, told mo a nmrvelotis stoty
about an rducitctl dog that ho hail seen
In a stoic In lloynl street, and nmoiis
other tliliii;s declined that the animal
would hark twelve times every day at
noon. That Interested me greatly, for
1 have made soinetlilnt; of a study of
nnlmal Intelligence and never discover
ed either brant or bild that could count
above three. So I posted off Immedi
ately to see the dog. My friend gave
me lather vague directions, and 1
scoured an area of live or six blocks
without Uncling anybody who had ever
Ward of the prodigy. That puzzled
me, for It was hard to believe that such
a truthful man nad'told a deliberate lie,
nnd 1 went around to his office to do
a little cross-examining. Ho was visib
ly embarrassed under my questions
nnd Unfitly lie broke down. "The story
Is all right," he said, "and the dog is
really there, but I stretched things a
little- when I told you I saw him my
self. It was my cousin who saw tho
nnlmal, nnd he'll be glad to give you
"Hut what made you say you saw
him yourself," I asked In surprise.
"Oh! well," he replied, "you didn't
know my cousin, nnd to lug him In
would have Involved a lot of tiresome
explanation. So I Just told tho story
at first hand. But It's nil right, I ns
Miro you. Here Is my cousin's ad
dress." I called on tho cousin at onco nnd
when I mentioned the dog ho became
enthusiastic. "He's tho most wonder
ful creature I over saw!" ho exclaimed.
"Did you hear about htm barking at
twelve?" That reassured mo and I
asked the address, but again the di
rections were rather misty. "I don't
know much about tho old quarter," lie
admitted, "but It's near so-and-so,"
nnd ho named n familiar landmark.
Accordingly I started out afresh with
no liptter results than before, and re
turned lather hot about the collar.
"Look hero!" I said, "tell mo frankly
did you sec that dog yourself or did
you meiciy hear about him?"
Tho cousin turned several shades of
pink and tried to dodgo tho question,
but I pinned him down, nnd flnnlly ho
confessed that ho "got It from Mike,'
in whoso word ho had Implicit confi
dence. "Von see, you didn't know
Mike," lie began, "and to lug him in
"Oil, jes," I sneered, "I understand till
about that, lint the man 1 want to bco
now Is Mike himself." "Ho is my por
ter," sad tho cousin, tnther faintly.
"I'll call him nt onco It you'll watt."
Mlko proved to bo as good nntured
and Irresponsible an old fraud as 1
over laid eyes on, nnd ho leplled to his
master's questions with perfect sang
frold. Had ho seen tho dog.? Sure.
And a wonderful dog It was to bark
tho time when tho hands of the dock
were foinlust 12. Ho had never been
thn beat of It In his life.
"Now, see hero, Mike," I cut In. "I've
gone on two wild goose errands al
ready, and Just to save tlmo supposo
j on tell us right now who told you
about that dog.'
"Who told mo!" repented tho old ras
cal, looking stnitled.
"Yes, who told you? 1 know per
fectly well j on didn't see him your
self." Mike grinned hlieepishly. "It must
bo n inoliiil render yo nie, bor," he
stammered. "Well, who was It?"
'Trench I'ote, tho milkman," ho re
plied reluctantly. "Ho's a lad yo don't
know" ho was adding, hut I sawed
li I in off. "Oh, to bo sure," I said sar
castically, "and you wcro nfinld it
would complicate things to lug him
in. I wonder who's I'eto's friend?"
I mado n special trip next morning
to see tho milkman, who wasn't Kiencli
a, nil, but a Bort of mongrel Portu
B se, with n heathenish patois, almost
ll losslblo to understand. When asked
11 jut tho dog ho scratched his hend
and looked puzzled. At last ho grasp
ed tho Idea and 1 oared with laughter.
"Miko ez n becg fool!" ho said. "That
dog cz not 'life. They mako Mm outa
Iron beeg Iron dog how you call 'tin
autimntiquo on top zo church In
Lisbon with belt on his Insldo."
.1 hnd rend about tho curious bronze
dog in Lisbon that chimes tho hours
on a deep bell that sounds something
llko a bark, and I felt a violent Im
pulso to club somebody. I didn't caro
much who. When cooled off I realized
that It was n flno cxamplo of vicarious
mendacity for my book. I tell you n
chain totter Is nothing to a chain Ho,
Now Orleans Democrat.

when you married me," Husband "I
did more than that. I deceived myself.
