Baid a fancier, "but some of them that aro
well bred are led to do it by their natural
sagacity and force of character. They may
not perform the duty with the desperate en
ergy that is shown by the whity brown cur
with the long toil and the black patch over
bis eye, but they will do it well enough to
answer every reasonable expectation. That
bull terrier you seo thero now, weighing
about thirty-flvo pounds, with the undershot
jaw and ugly enough to lo put into a cham
ber of horrors anywhere, might bo wide
awake when a robber is squeezing his body
through the pantry window, but ho would
make no effort to stop tho man's entry; but
once in tho fellow would have hard work to
get out again.
"It is not easy to say what the bull terrier
will do with tho prisoner when he has him at
his mercy. It depends largely upon the ani
mal's previous general (not special) training.
Certainly the man will have no voice in tho
matter, unless ho howls to the inmates of the
house for protection, which ia really the
wisest courso ho could take, though he sel
dom chooses it. A personal encounter hand
to tooth would be a forlorn hope indeed, and
the possession of a pistol gives fewer ad
vantages than you might think. The drawing
of tho weapon would precipitate the conflict.
The bull terrier is a brute hard to kill, and a
mere wound only adds to its ferocity. Then
the combatant aro too close together to al
low of the effective use of a revolver, and a
'throat grip,' which tho dog may get at once,
and is almost sure to secure in a few seconds,
will very quickly placo tho robber where a
pistol, though it would probably bo dis
charged before tho trigger was pulled, will
do him no good.

for the work down stairs was'done in silence.
The next morning tho dead body of tho butler
was found lying on tho floor of the pantry
with tho dog crouching, beside it. The man's

fo fMoro Fanatics Anxious for Death
Beneath the Cruel Wheels Coolies
Hired to Drag the Car Once Drawn by
The announcement that the once lamoua
festival of Juggernaut has so declined in
popularity as to render it necessary for the
priests to hire coolies to drag the car, is a
measure of the extent to which the destruc
tive solvent of western thought is being
applied to eastern creeds. The car of the
great god of Pooree was one of the most
sacred of Brahminic "proprieties," and
the Rath Jattra a festival which, in im
portance, yielded to that of no other deity
in the Hindoo Pantheon. From every
part of the vast empire of Hindostan pil
grims flocked to share in it, and when the
car of Juggernaut was dragged once a
year from the temple in order to batho
the gods in the cool water of the tank,
a mile and a half distant, the wildest en
thusiasm seized the vast multitude of de
votees. Thousands rushed to seize tho
cables, and so eager were the volunteers
for this holy service that the best and
greatest men of Orisaa struggled with each
other to obtain a hold upon the ropes. To
use tho language of an old writer who
witnessed the Rath Jattra in its palmy
days, "they are so greedy and eager to
draw it that whosoever, by shouldering,
crowding, shoving, heaving, thrusting, or
in any insolent way, can but lay a hand
upon the rope they think themselves
blessed and happy. And when it is going
along the city there are many that will
offer themselves as a sacrifice to the idol,
and desperately lie down on the ground
that tho chariot wheels may run over
them, whereby they are killed outright

IX HONOR OF THE GOD.
At even a later date martyrs to Jugger
naut, or Jagganna'th, as ho is more cor
rectly termed, were not infrequent. When
Francis Buchanan was in Pooree early in
thiB century, he describes the harsh grat
ing of the gigantic car as it moved along,
the obscene songs of tho priests in honor
of the god, and tho fierce glances which
the fanatics bestowed on tho beef eating
Englishmen, as a pilgrim announced him
self ready to become a sacrifice to the
idol. No ono daring or caring to prevent
the self-immolation, tho man prostrated
himself in the road before tho tower as it
moved along, lying on his face with his
arms stretched forward. The multitude
pressed around him, leaving the space
clear, until he was crushed to death by
tho wheels of the ponderous structure.
Then a wild cry of praise was raised, and
as tho god was seen to "smile" at the
libation of spouting blood tho devotees
throw cowries and pieces of money on the
body of the victim in approbation of the
holy deed by which he had won immor
tality in tho Hindoo Walballo.
It is, therefore, suggestive of a strange
revolution in Hindoo opinion to hear that
not only are victims lacking, but that, in
stead of thousands struggling for the
honor of a place at tho drag ropes, labor
ing men, at so many annas per diem, have
to be hired to perform the sacred func
tion. The awe of the Indian people for
"the lord of the world" has been declin
ing. For many years past tho fame of
the great god of. Orlssa has been on tho
wane, and the time when a human sacri
fice was deliberately offered up to the
hideous idoL is fast getting beyond the
power of tho very oldest of tho old Indiana
NUMBER OF DEVOTEES.
