whoso statements we implicitly rely,
relates the following incident, the
scene of which if in tho viciuity of
tllO tOwU of 13rkllton. A Calf, of
about a year's ago, and a terrier dog
of unusual sagacity, have there form
thoflM ed a, Btrons friendship for each oth-
Every day tho dog proceeds to
visit tho calf, who exhibits on his
approach tho most lively focling ol
satisfaction. They cngago in amic
tho alj' BPort together, and roll upon
tl. ground, whon the calf thrusts his
largo tonguo from his mouth, which
tho dog pretend;) to bito, with other
similar demonstrations. After a
while the dog will apparently start
on his rctnrn homo, whereupon the
calf will set up a bellow oi disap
probation. Apparently touched by
tho grief of his beloved friend, tho
dog will return and prolong his visit.
This occurs daily, with great regu
larity, and tho fact lias got so nois

that could be found would follow him
