LEO, THE DOG.
Ford Boner may live to bo a very old
manlie is "going on" fifteen nowbut
it is likely that he will always recollect
what occurred on a certain dark even
ing in August, two years ago. Ford's
father and mother were traveling in Eu
rope that summer, hence Ford, who was
all the rest of the year a boarding-school
boy of the first water, spent his vacation
at his Uncle Pepper"s country place.
Ford's chief companion from day to
da\, as he scrambled among the rocky
spiir^, .is Leo. Leo was a Scotch grey
hound, Major Pepper's particular pet.
Now one curious trait of his did equal
honor lo his head and heart. He had
been bought at Black's Hollow, a village
it a store, which was also a post-ollice
and si or seven dwellings, can be
called a villageabout two miles fur
ther up the road, among the mountains,
llegularly, once or twice a week, would
Leo slip off in the morning tor a wholo
day's visiting with any four-legged
pla) mate's whose society he had former
ly relished at Black's Hollow. On such
occasions Ford had to ramble on the
Now Am/i Spinner, Major Pepper's
hiied man, had a brother, who kept the
post-ollicc and store at the Hollow. As
soon as Amzi discovered Leo's trick of
going so frequently thither of his own
ill, it seemed good to him to teach the
dog to can*) a letter there with safety
and dispatch, whenever told to do so.
Amzi would tie his missive securely
about the bright-eved, little dog's neck,
and say in his Yankee drawl:
"Naow, Leo, 3 on jest make tracks for
the village, double-quick. Do you un
derstand'* That letter1
ought to git to
the store. Be off?"
Leo would leap away, barking joy
fully, and in au hour return to seek
Amzi in the field or bain, collared with
an answer fioin Lo) Spinner. In this
way the dog became, in a limited sense,
the messenger and postman of the fam
ily, when occasion prompted, and a
very quick and faithful one. It was the
last Thuisdav in August, when Major
Pepper, finishing his second cup of
cotlec at breakfast, exclaimed to his
wile. '-There, Helen, I forgot to tell
jou last night that if vou want to go
to the town in the plueton with me to
dav, anil give this afternoon to pick
ing out tho-,e carpets, it'll suit me eapi-
Aunt Popper laughed. "Why does a
ni'in alw a\ choose just the wrong day of
all othei^' she said merrily. "Amziand

Pepper's cook) anted to go to New York

I don't expect tlicm back until long af
ter we're 111 bed to-night. I can't leave
the house and Ford to take care of
"Oh, }cs, jo can," laughed Uncle
Pepper. "Ford might go along, it it
wouldn't be a hot and stupid day in
town for him, we shall be so busy.
Leave him a good luncheon, and let
him keep house bv himself for once.
Leo will help him. You wouldn't mind
it, eh Ford?"
Ford laughed, too, and said that he
rather guessed not.
"We'll not be later in getting home
than six o'clock, I suppose," said Aunt
Pepper, reluctantly consenting.
"Oh, dear, no," replied the major,
"and Ford will have a fine appetite for
a late dinner."
A half hour later Ford and Leo, the
one with his hand and the other with
lu active, it unimportant, tail, waved
major and Mis Pepper good-bye from
the broad piazza, and then turned them
selves about to begin the work of pass
ing a jolly dav together. Ford did not
like to leave the house tor any length of
A wooden swing he was contriving in
the garden, the arrangement of his col
lection of Indian relics, and a letter to
his room-mate at the schoolone Harry
Northtook up all the forenoon.
This latter, or letter business, was
still on hand, and Ford was scratching
away at it in the summer-house, when
Leo suddenly growled. Then he sprang
up, balking violently. A strange gen
tleman was leisurely drawing near the
pair of friends. Ford rose and stepped
out of his retreat.
"I beg pardon for interrupting you,
sir," began the stranger, very pleasant
ly, "but are your father and mother at
"My father and mother are in Eu
rope, sir," replied Ford "but"
"AhohI see," contiuued the civil
stranger. I had forgotten that my old
friends, Major and Mrs. Pepper, had no
children. Is your uncle at home?"
"I'm sorry, sir," replied Ford, "but
they have both driven to town tfyis
morning, and will not be back till eve
ning. Be quiet, Leo!" for Leo persist
ed in showing his teeth, and making
sundry impolite noises, not to say
growls, while he eyed the polite new
comer very much as if he had been a
"A fine dog that," remarked the
stranger, carelessly. "Well, since I am
unlucky enough to miss your uncle,
could 1 see that excellent man he em
ploys here, AmziAmzidear me, I
cannot just remember his name." The
strange gentleman had a clear, rich
voice. He was by the way, a stout,
well-made young man, with a dark cra
"Sorry again, sir," replied Ford,
"but Amzi and Mira are away, too, un
til late this evening. I just happens
so. Couldn't I take your message for
uncle? Leo, be still, I tell you!"
"You're very kind, my dear boy,"
said the unknown gentleman, looking
at his. watch and backing out of the
summer-house gracefully, "but I won't
trouble yon. I should prefer riding
over from my place to-morrow evening.
Please tell vour good uncle that Mr.
Alexander Kingbolt, he will remember
my name, called on business, and will
see him to-morrow evening, if possible,
at eight. Good-bye." And Mr. Alex
ander Kingbolt, whistling sweetly
"There's one more river to cross,"step
ped into a light buggy standing with
ut the gate. Another gentleman sat
it, and the two rode away, talking
ihe uiternoon siiaaows grew long}
the twilight closed in Ford and Leo sat
together, the boy with his hand on the
dog's head. Both began to feel some
what lonesome, at least, Ford did. Why
in the world did not the phaeton come
toiling up the steep mountain road?
Halloa! a white owl fluttered across the
lawn into an acacia.
Ford had long desired to ascertain
that particular owl's private address.
He dashed after it, ana Leo bore him
company. Up through the dark gar
den bird, boy and dog sped. Presently
Ford slipped and fell. He uttered a
cry when' he rose, and found that he
could put his left foot to the ground on
ly with a pain that sickened him, so
severely had his fall strained it.
Very slowly and painfully Ford
limped into the garden again, his un
lucky foot feeling more miserable every
step. All at once he looked through the
trees and saw lights in the dining-room
of his uncle's house.
Major Pepper and Aunt Helen were
back, doubtless much disturbed to
know where in the world Ford and
Leo had gone, or since what hour of the
As he drew nearer the closed shutters
he caught the sound of low, strange
voices, the faint clink of a hammer.
Could it be possible that anything was
amiss? Ford was frightened, but pru
"Leo," said he very softly, but al
most sternly, to the dog, whose ears
were on the alert, too, "lie down!"
Forgetting his painful foot in his
breathless excitement, Ford crept down
along the back of the house. The voices
came clearly from within. "And we'd
better be quick about it," somebody
A robbery it surely was. Ford turned
the blind and looked within the dining
room. A lamp was lit. The safe where
in Major Pepper usually kept his papers
and any large sum of money he happen
ed to have in the house for "a day or so,
was rolled out to the middle of the room.
Over it leaned a tall, well-dressed man,
impatiently directing another man, who
knelt before it, and was working at
the old-fashioned lock with some tools
he had evidently brought for the pur
Ford caught sight of a piolile, and the
sound of "One more river to cross,"
whistled very gently. The man work
ing at the sate door was Mr. Alexander
Kingbolt. An exceedingly frightened
boy was Ford Bonner.
"So, then, they cannot possibly got
over the bridge?" said Mr. Kingbolt,
plying his chisel.
"All the planks are up and hid away
till we go down, I tell you," replied the
other, "and a led lantern hung across
"The bridge," Ford knew at once,
must mean a narrow, rough structure
across the stream just before the road
from town wound up the mountain
"Thev're likely on their way around
by the other one. It'll take them till
There was a pau&e. Then said Mr.
Kingbolt, out ot beath, "Where do
you suppose that boy and the dog
"Lost on the mountain, I dare say.
But if they come back before we get
through, we can fix them somehow."
Ford slipped from below the window.
The boy understood all. Many houses
in the town had been robbed lately.
The "gang" had in some way learned
that Major Pepper was occasionally
obliged to keep large amounts of money
in his lonely country house. They had
chosen their day carefully, made or else
altered their plans that very morning,
thanks to Ford's own politeness in an
swering Mr. Kingbolt's questions. By
a trick they had sent Major and Mrs.
Pepper around by their longest route
for home. The whole thing was a
hastily, but cleverh, planned scheme.
And Ford could do nothingalone the
nearest houses in the village two miles

Had he forgotten Leo? The thought
darted into his confused mind like a
Hash. He leaned forward into a ray of
light, and gently drew out his pencil,
and the envelope, still undirected, in
which was his letter to Harry North.
He managed to control his excite
ment and tenor enough to scrawl upon

pushing and pointing the dog off.
Leo refused to go. He did not un
derstand all this mystery. Ford feltfor
a slick and shook it at him. Leo bound

half sat down, on the grass.
He never knew how long it was be
fore he was started from his itupor by
hearing stealthy steps appioach down
the road. He strained his voungeyes
to make out a dozen tall figures moving
noiselessly toward his hiding place.
They were the astonished men from the
village, roused from their circle of gos

Leo's advent and extraordinary excite

They leaped the garden wall. Afew
minutes later Ford heard shouts, and
the sound of a gun or two, and a strug

"They've got 'em!" he exclaimed,
delight and relief getting the best of his
long fright and pain.

Ford joined in the cheers of him,
when at eleven o'clock Major and Mrs.
Pepper rode hurriedly up to the bright
ly-lit house to hear the end of the story
which the village people of the moun
tain had stopped them, hurrying to
ward home, to tell. Soon after arrived
Amzi and Mvra, more explanations and
much more ado made over Ford and
Leo than either of them relished.

again. "I was some money that a

A Vicious Bird.
The Denver News says that Colonel
Wilson E. Sisty, Fish Commissioner of
Colorado, while visiting the state fish
halchery, nine miles down the Platte,
observed a huge blue heron pieying up
on young fish in the boxes. Colonel
Sisty had frequently seen the bird en
gaged in this before, but it had invari
ably flown upon his approach. Yester
day the heron, instead of taking alarm,
appeared to become greatly enraged at
the interruption, and, with outstretched
wings, rushed at Colonel Sisty. The
bird stood fully as high as Colonel Sisty,
who is slightly over live feet two inches
and was of great swiftness of move
ment as well as considerable strength.
It used its head and neck with light
ning-like rapidity, striking steadily for
the Colonel's face. He was unable to
more than protect his eves for some lit
tle time, so tierce was its attack and the
blows rained upon his hands in protect
ing his face left them bleeding badly.
His face was also cut in places. After
the first surprise Colonel Sisty prepared
to assume the offensive. Protecting his
face with his hat, he rushed in upon the
huge heron, and, seizing it by the body,
threw it to the ground. Then kneeling
upon it, he clasped it by the throat un
til life was extinct. Colonel Sisty,
though suffering considerably from loss
of blood, managed to cany the bird to
his buggy, in which he brought it to
town. The body of the bird was last
evening turned over to a taxidermist,
who will prepare it for exhibition at the
hatchery. Colonel Sisty's wounds were
dressed by Dr. Lemen, who pronounced
them painful but not dangerous. Col
onel Sisty is of the opinion that the bird
must have its nest in the vicinity of the
hatchery, and that the attack was made
in defense of its young, as he never
knew a bird of this kind before to show

FOR RESTORING GRAY HAIR TO ITS
NATURAL VITALITY AND COLOR.
IT is a most agreeable dressing, which
is at once harmless and effectual, for pre
serving the hair. I restores, with the
gloss and freshness of youth, faded or gray,
light, and red hair, to a rich brown, or deep
black, as may he desired. By its use thin
hair is thickened, and baldness often
though not always cured. I checks falling
of the hair immediately, and causes anew
growth in all cases where the glands are
not decayed while to brashy, weak, or
otherwise diseased hair, it imparts vitality
and strength, and renders it pliable.
The VIGOR cleanses the scalp, cures and
prevents the formation of dandruff and,
by its cooling, stimulating, and soothing
properties, it heals most if not all of the
humors and diseases peculiar to the scalp,
keeping it cool, clean, and soft, under
which conditions diseases of the scalp and
hair are impossible.
As a Dressing for Ladies' Hair
The VIGOR is incomparable. I is color
less, contains neither oil nor dye, and will
not soil white cambric. I imparts an
agreeable and lasting perfume, and as an
article for the toilet it is economical and
unsurpassed in its excellence.
