In your present state of mind I
know it most be as painful for you to
receive as for me to impart the in
telligence .'that ypur "Ban-d^g" is stiil
wmaV-Wo^ rural 'poet'Would call a
"hope deferred." I had hoped to
luxuriate ere this in the knowledge
that you weae as iortunate as 1 in the
possession of ono ofthc.se' inestimable
treasures, but I am no Jacob to
hasten on the natural event among
the animal kingdom, and "Ah Sin"
remains puppy less?and you are left
yet, awhile longer to pine for your
"Ban-dog." You know Paid it has
often been a matter of* -thoughtful
consideration with me .'lljabybu had
not long since fathoihed life merits'of
a genuine, out-and-out Ban-dog. A
Ban-dog is altogether unlike the dog
of Jim 1:1 anics Uncle Lent, (see
"Roughing it ') and mm securely lie
depended on to carry out a special
.providence. A properly trained I>a;i
'ddg can do more, to com fort a man
who has enemies,- than most any other
ngciicy you tire a mind to name.
"Dont talk to me 'bout accidents"
said Jim Blainc, "there aint no stich
things its accidents, l'rovidonccdticl
lire no blank calridgos boys. ICvery
thiiig that's seen, and aint understood
aint an accident." Ono,.Jim lilainc !
Your head's lev* I; there, aint anything
like accident about a llan-d?g !
If tiicrea nnytfiun* in'nature that
can. he called a surething, a Ban dog
fills the hill in my judgment.
You seo, a Ban-dog niiit a (hing that
you've got to load, and prime, and
keep groused and wiped out con
tinually. A Ban-dog is all of that
already, and all tho time, and jest
awatching and awaiting for the sign
to tajlc holt. You ain't called on to
wait till somebody knocks you first,
out of respect for the law?and you
ain't obliged to bollur out, "'lake Huh
(or her, its t'ac case may he,) Tige
"when your feelins gets hurt. All
youye got to do is jus, to wait until
you catch that Ban-dog's cyo (and if
you are in tho habit of telling him to
lay hohl of things, ynu never litt! ve to
wait long at a time) and when you
catch, his eye tho next place you lo k,
lib Will look too, and if there is any
iiv'c thing a-occupying that spot, that
Ban-dog is going to ma?e for il as
sure as fate, and if you don't say
''Conic hack," quick, there'll he a
Ban-dog' and some other animal, two
legged or four, mixed in mortal broil
quicker than a cat . can wink) or a
carpetbagger cheat a nigger. The
beauty of a Ban-dog h that he's got
no sense o.'" accountability, lie's got
no moral sense. He's <rot no sense.
He jest as soon bite contrary \yiniincn
or bad children as a bi<c man or a !
If you've got a enemy?it don't!
make no cliflere'nee ic/io?and you
signify that met to your pet Ban-dog.
that enemy becomes A/a enemy, and
bo is all tlio time nwailin'ami ahopin'
lor the so/u. Some dogs will hite men,
but they won't bite wiinuu u: .Some
dogs will hite grown nip people, but
they, won't ' hite children, good nor
?0:1.c dogs will hitcsfrange people,
but not them that they know. But
yen/lernen 'tain't so with a Ban-dog.
ji A Biui dog is bottnd^ to_pite jest
whatever you tell him to hite?und-in
my judgment, that is something that
ought to hiake'you look upon him as
a friend in need and a friend indeed
There's wimincu that will ?grivate
and snssyou scandalously ami you've
got no rcmed}?unless you've got a j
Ban-dog. But if you've got a Ban-j
dog you have a good .remedy, for you :
can si'yn that dog to "shct down" and
he'll do it, or die. If its one of the.-;
skeery wimmen that cam take wni n
ning and ".stund from under" when
the finger of fate shows in anything,
and tin1 dog only happens to get his
tcctli full,of dothes; why you can jest
take him , by the hind-legs and pull
him steady, until you can get a prize
betweqn his jaws, and then there'll he
!no harm done, hut a sight of good.
. But if it should happen to be one
o.I these real ]tril(j/t hard?to?dis
:eourago wimmen, that needs regener
ation njvi nothing.shorter?why, when
you see that the Ban-dog ain't got
nothing but clothes in his grinders,
you jest takes him by the hind-legs,
samp as before, aud hi place of pull in'
him back steady, you shove him for
ward- as if he had made a jump-like,
and this is one certain thing about a
Ban-dog?if you pull him hack after
be lays hohl, he jest only shuts his
eyes and falls into acuta lockjaw, but
it yon shove him forward he is .?.uro
to open Ids mouth and lake in more.

aud lakes him off sure enough
There's no instance .of any wimtuen

I like to come across a man with
the toothache.*' There s something so
pleasant about advising him to stuff]
cotton in it, to use camphor creosote,
.peppermint and "iclief," that I always
feel better u$er giving it. I have
been there, had an aching snag, ami 1
know just bow it feels. iL used to
wake me up at night ami make me
niad at noon/and set me to swearing
early in the morning. I didn't meet
man or womarrbu'twhat they advised
me. One said that a hot knitting
needle pushed1 down on the root was
excellent; another said that opium
was an excellent thing; and otlicrssaid
that it must be dug out by the dentist.
If I sat down fjo dinner, that old tootli
began to growl. If I went to bed; or
got up, or wentrto a party, or stayed at
home, it growled just-the same. It
wasn't always'a growl. Sometimes it
was a juinptluit made my hair stand
up, aud again- a sort of cutting pain

baby, slam doors and break windows.
I ate cotton,peppermint, camphor and
opium until I got black in the face,

decided to have my tooth out. I de

changed my mind four times in one
after >n, and at bist I went. The
dentist was glad to see me. He said
that if lie could not take the tooth out
without hurting me, he would give me
a million. It got easier as he talked,
and I concluded not to have it pulled.
I started down stairs, but a jump
caught me, und T rushed back. He.
said he would look at it; perhaps it did
not iiced pulling at all, hut he could
kill the nerve. By dint of flattery he
got me in the chair. Then ho softly
inserted a knife and cut away the
gums. 1 looked tip and said I would

the. forceps tightly, and then he pulled.

and made 'a break,' sitting down side
