This Is the story of a dog. .. He was a noble
animal a setter and thoroughly well

The first time I saw him was at tha North
western depot at Chicago. I was going to
Fox Lake, Ills., for a weeks hunting with a
friend. Just after we got through the gate a
man came down tbe platform followed by a
dog. Although there was a big crowd, the
dog was allowed to ruu loose be was led by
no chain or thong. Wo both remarked at the
time that be was a magnificent animal, and
watched him an he was trotting along behind
bis master. They went to the baggage car
and the man spoke a word to the baggage
master. The latter pointed to a corner of tbe
car. The dog's owner made a motion in the
some direction and the Intelligent animal
Jumped into the oar and curled up in that
cornor. The baggage man wantod t tie him
to something, but the owner suii no.
"He'll stay there all right," he said.
And he did Whoa we got oil at McHenry,

His owner went forward and called him and
he jumped. Of course we were more than

and told us a good many stories about what

"Hell letch me onythlns I tall him to."
said Hunter, after he had warmed up to his
subject "Why, if I told him to bring me

We all laughed, of course.
"Come down a little," said the pronrletor
of tho hotel.
"No, I wont," retorted Hunter, hotly.

The proprietor looked astonished.

table and looked around lu an undecided way.
"That's rijht," exclaimed his master.
He looked around again, apparently for
something to catch hold of. His eyes fell on
one of the pockets, and in a twinkling he had
wrenched it off and laid it at his master's

"Well, of course he's pot to bring it in sec

whole table, but If you'll give him tira he'll
get it all here."
And I believe he would. He was the slave
of his master's word or look. However, the
landlord admitted his defeat to save his table.
The next time I saw Hunter and Jack w&s

hailed us from the other side.

"O, no," he iid. "Wait."
He sat down and pulled off one of bis rub

gave it to Jack. Jack swam over with it, we
put the cartridges in and he took it back.
We were more in love tnti him than ever.
The next day Him tor gave us another ex

about thirty feet apart. The dog lay by his

there was nothing in tho world like the dog.
He thought there was nothing under heaven
