Canines That Delight In Little Joke nnd
"Speaking ot dogs," snld Representa
tive Tntsney ot Missouri, "reminds me
of n. couple which belong to Colonel Nel
son, the publisher of the Kansas City
Star Colonel Nelson litis these dogs out
ut his tountiy place, .some eight miles
from tho town. One is a greyhound
who has nr more brains than a turkey.
Ho Is all logs anil can tun like thc wind
The companion dog Is n Itusslnn poodle
nf laige hive, and while not much of a
llycr, is a profound, thoughtful dog,
with ,-t taste to be humorous
"One of the poodle's chief delight! is
to see the greyhound run. This Is best
accomplished by stalling 11 tabblt. This
Is not much of a trick, as the region
nlioiinds in tabbits. oC the cottontail
family Tho poodle will hunt up the
gieyhound every good af lei noon and in
sist Hint it come a-htmtlng. The addle
pnted gieyhound Is nothing loath. It
hasn't wit enough to start out a rabbit
by Itself. Hut the wise poodle attends
to that part of the business. Away they
go, the poodle dodging into the fence
corneis. Investigating lutish heaps,
seanhing clumps of bushes, and stink
ing out the scenery geneially for a rab
bit. The gieyhound trots along hope
fully waiting for Its part
"At last nut lunges a filghteneel cot
tontail. The ioodle gives a howl of joy
and clashes for the gieyhound to lead It
Into view of the Hying game. Once the
greyhound lias sighted the cottontail
it need-- nn fuithei directions. It begins
to unbuckle its slim length nnd departs
in the v.:ip of the doomed cottontail
like an expiess tialn
"Tho poodle never chases the qunrry
After the gievhound is under way It
stands ami watches the i.ico with nn
air of the liveliest satisfaction. Once
the gieyhound has overtaken nnd killed
its eiuairy, the poodle puts in 11 n appear
ance and takes ch.11 go ot the dead 1.1b
blt, which it cm lies up to tho house
to exhibit as its on 11.
"Theie ar. times when no rabbit can
be found. On these occasions after the
poodle has faithfully ransacked bush
and brushheap in vain, it will put up
.1 Job on the gieyhound. It Is bound to
have the Joy of witnessing the grey
hound tun, even if no rabbit lesults
therefrom. On these cottontallless ilnys
the poodle will suddenly come chaiglng
thmiigh a clump of bushes utteiing hor
tiil )ells, and all as If In breathles pur
suit of a rahblt. This never fall, to
stnit tho gie) hound, who. while seeing
no tab-bit, feels sine that the poodle
eloes, and so, getting the direction ftom
the poodle, goes flying across oountiy,
expecting every fresh leap to hi ing tho
rabbit In sight When tho poodle has
launched the greyhound on thc wild
goose chase, it comes to a full stop nnd
looks nfter tho other us It enjoying the
joke. The gif?) hound never le.iins any
thing and the poodle can fool it oveiy
afternoon of tho je.ir. Its idiocy Is fresh
and new eveiy day.' M'ashlngton Tost.

Ho had a pug dog of which h was very

The minister wns In a pretty dilemma,
for he knew ns soon as lm began to pray
the dog would begin to howl,
Thein was only 0110 thing to do, which
was to get the dog back to his home,
which was but n few- step from tho door
leading into his study. ,
As luck would have It, the dog turned
fiom tho middle ulsle nnd took one of the
side aisles that led to tho minister's
Quickly the minister left the pulpit and
opened the door of his study Just In tlmo
to rot-til e the dog.
Ho quickly grabbed the dog, and, hold

As the dog alighted at the head of the
