Life Saved by Canine Sagacity.
St. Louis Globe Democrat: Mr.
James McNichol of No. 1500 Chestnut
street, is the owner of probably the
most remarkable dog in St. Louis.
Money cannot buy Jack, for such is the
canine hero's name, even Mrs. Mc
Nichol, an invcrate hater of dogs, hav
ing succumbed to the loyalty and in
telligence displayed by the little Scotch
terrier in saving from an awful and un
timely end her niece and adopted child,
Belle. Belle is only 12 years old. and
she and Jack have always been "warm
friends. Recently they met with an
experience which neither of them is
likely to forget, and which has elevated
Jack to an enviable position among
his kind. One day, when they were
up-stairs together, Belle had occasion
to enter a clothes-closet filled with
shelves. There was just room
enough between the shelves and
the entrance for her to stand
erect, and while she was doing
so Jack in a playful mood stood on his
hind-legs, and with his fore-paws on
the door closed it tight.
The closet opened from the outside
only, and in it, almost hermetically
sealed, her outcries silenced to the in"
mates of the house, her danger known
to no one but the dog, Belle was left to
die in all the slow horrors of strangu
lation. But. endowed with a reason
almost human, though denied the gift
of speech,' the intelligent animal after
some futile efforts at assistance trotted
down the stairs till he found the old
family servant, when he endeavored by
every means possible to a dog to at
tract her attention and induce her to
follow him. At first she thought him
mad, but finally concluded to see what
he would do and started up stairs after
him, Jack turning himself around and
wagging his tail at every step. Upon
reaching the closet his whinings and
and demonstrations increased, and
when it was opened Belle was found in
an unconscious condition. In five
minutes more she would have been
