The Coasting Dog.
Once there was a young
"skeeswax" of a boy, named Jim,
who had a big Newfoundland
dog that he catled Major. He
was a very black, curly, hand
some dog, good-natured and fall
of fun, you know-he loved fun
as well as his master-and his
master loved it better than mo
lasses candy. He loved a joke,
too, for once when he was trot
ting along to the Post Office
with a basket in his mouth, as1
he had been taught to do, for
the mail, a little snarling caur
ran out at him, barking with all
might. He had bothered Major
often before, and this time the
old fellow dropped his basket
and caught the little cur right
around the back in his great
mouth, picked him up and car
ried him about ten rods and
dropped him. It would have
made you laugh to see that lit
tle snarling pup go howling for
home, with his tail hugged tight
between his legs.
Well, one winter Jim used to
coast every day. The hill was
just glassy, and the sleds zipped
down swift as an arrow. Major
went out with the boys, and he
could keep up with them very
well climbing the hill, but when
they started down, they soon
left him way behind. He didn't
like this at all, and so when Jim
left his sled to go to saupper-
after he had been called asi
usual three times, once by Mag
gie, the girl, who hollered :
"Masther ,amie ! supper is
ready, shure, coom in to wannst!"
-once by his mother, who said:
" Jim-me! come-to-supper-this,
minnit!"-and last by his father,!
who just said: "Jim!" and
crooked his thumb toward the
house in a way that let Jim
know something else would crook
if he didn't mind-Major waited
outside. When his litte master
was stuffing himself with baked
potatoes and brown bread, the,
dog took the rope in his teeth
and dragged the sled up the
When he got to the top, he
stopped, turned the sled around,
as he had seen the boys do, and
then began to think-as much
as to say : "Ought a dog to slide
belly-bunt, or side-fashion or
sitting up?" He didn't know
whether to steer with his tail, or
his fore feet, or his hind feet.
But slide he must; and so he
jumped on, caught the rope in1
his teeth and started down, let-i
ting the sled steer itself, while:
he sat up and watched the fun.
Down, down it went. Major:
hanging on, but looking prettyf
well scared. Just as the sled
got near the "jounee," at the
Ibottom, going like a run-away
horse, Jim came out and you
never saw a boy so astonished.
He puckered up his mouth and
let out an "O-h-h-h!" as long
as one of the icicles on the shed.
1the "jounce" threw Major ofof
heels over head in front of the
sled, and he got caught between
the rnners and pushed into a
deep snow drift, that filled his
month and eyes and ears fall,
and made him as white as a
sheep all over.
When Jim saw that Major
wasn't hart, he laughed 'and
roared, and called'the dog idto
the back door where his mother
~hrs, and said :
.I; . a a, feller that's ben
running away with my sled,
coasting; and the sled rain W'
with him, and dusted him go
I guess you'd, better brush him
off, and see if his fiet are wet,
and toast his shins before the
grate, and tell him he can't go
out again to-night."
And when hismamma found
it was the dog she saw the joke,
and laughed, too gd let Jim
stay out half an hoar later, and
didn't tell him to "Be careful!"
and "Don't get cold," and "Bb.
sure you come in on time 1" and'
"Don't go near the hill till you
learn to steer," over seventeen.
