either to cremate the remains or to her

body into the river. Mrs. Jones chose
the latter alternative, but having half

dog disappeared for an instant and
then reappeared on the surface alive.
and swimming across to the opposite
bans: trotted off, evidently in great suf
fering. There ends the dream
The next morning the postman
brought several letters. The first one
was addressed to Lewis Jones, Esq.,
there being no such person and ran
as follows: "Sir, your dog crossed the
river last night on to my property, but
being very severely injured it was
found necessary to kill it- Should you
wish to have the collar, which bears
your name and address, I shall be hap
py to send It to you."
No dog belonging to Mrs. Jones had
died nor bad she lost one. London
