who carries the mail at Union City
from the trains to the office, is a
clever fellow, but absent-minded.

gave the mail bag a kick, and
seized the dog by the cuff of the j
neck and tail and started for the
mail car. Tho messenger told him
the dog was not properly stamped."

vested it for time and eternity, too."
