A Iea Face In the Window.
Crock ford, the proprietor of a well
known London gambling house, was
made to play a queer role after be wan
dead. When one of Crockford's horses
was poisoned Just before the Derby,
the misfortune brought on an attack
of apoplexy, which proved fatal with
in 48 hours. Now, many of Crock
ford's friends -hart staked large sums
on another of the gambler's horse?,
which was a favorite for the Oaks and
which was disqualified by the death
of the owner. Only tbe people in the
gambling house knew of Crockford's
death, and it was resolved to keep it
a secret until after the race.
The servants were bribed and sworn
to secrecy, and the conspirators on
the day after the night upon which
Crockford died bad the body placed in
a chair at a window, fo that people re
turning from the track could see the
gambler sitciug there. He was fixed
np to look as lifelike as possible and
through the window and partially con
cealed from view by the curtains look
ed so natural that no oue of the great
crowd which came cheering by the
house when on their return from see
ing Crock ford's horse win the Oaks
suspected the trick.
Tbe next day It was announced that
Crockford was dead, but it was years
before the true story leaked out.

Faithful Shepherd Dock.
A cold spell in Montana killed a
sheep herder In the Great Falls dis
trict. Two feet of snow covered tho
range in places, and the thermometer
Indicated 40 degrees below zero.
The herder was frozen to death on
the prairies while caring for the sheep.
and it was three days before his fate
wa3 known to his employers. Two
shepherd dogs were with him when he
died, and one of these staid with hl3
body while the other attended to the
sheep, just as though the herder had
been with him. The dog drove them
out on the range In the morning and
lack again at night, guarding them
from wolves and preventing them from
straying off. Neither dog had any
thing to eat during the three days
Vigil, so far as could bo ascertained,
but the 2,500 sheep thrived as well ap
parently as though directed by human
agency. Tho singular fact about tho
matter Is that these faithful creatures
would have starved to death rather
than harm oue of the sheep left In
their charge. Portland Oregonian.
