EULOGY ON THE DOG.
Famous Speech Kade by the Late Sen
ator Vest, of M1issourl, in a Dam
age Suit Case.
The speech of Senator Vest eulogiz
ing the dog was made when serving
s attorney in the prosecution of a
man who had wantonly shot a dog of
a neighbor. The eulogy iollows.
"Gentlemen of the jury, the best
friend a man has in this world may
turn against him and become his
1enemy. His son or daughter that he
has reared with loving care may be
ome ungrateful. Those who are near
est and dearest to us, those whom we
'trust wilVi our happiness and our
good name may become traitors to
their trust. The money that a man has
e may lose. It fles away from him
when he may need it most. A man's
reputation may be sacrificed In a mo
ment of ill-considered action. The
people who a1re prone to fall on their
knees and do Eus honor wt '.success
is with us may be the first to throw
the stone of malice when failure set
tles its cloud upon our heads. The
one absolutely unselfish friend a man
may hav'e in this selfish world, the
e that never deserts him, the one
that never proves ungrateful or
re?cherous is the dog.
"Gentleman of the jury, a man's dog
Ktands by him in prosperity and in
poverty. in health and in sickness. He
will sleep on the cold ground, where
the wintry winds blow and snow drives
fiercely if only he may be near his
master's side. He will kiss the hand
:hthsno food to offer, he will lick
the wounds and sores that come in
encounters with the roughness of the
world. He guards the sleep of his
pauper master as if he were a prince.
When all other friends desert, he re
1mains. When riches take wings and
Ireputation falls to pieces he is as con
stant in his love as the sun in its
jourey through the heavens. If for
tune drives the master forth
an outcast into the world,
friendless and homeless, the
faithful dog asks no higher privi
lege than that of accompanying him,
to guard against danger, to fight
against his enemies and, when the

takes his master in its embrace and
his body is laid away in the cold
ground, no matter if all other friends
pursue their way, there by his grave
side will the noble dog be found, his
head between his paws, his eyes sad,
but open in alert watchfulness, faith
ful and true even to death."
The plaintiff had sued for $200 dam
ages. When Senator Vest finished
speaking, the jury. after deliberating
for two minutes, awarded $500.
