The Savby GtMavdlaa.
A gentleman in Connect icut took not
long ago a collie from the Lothian kennels
it Stepney. The dog, after the fashion of
its kind, soon made himself oik- of the
family, and assumed special responsibili
ties in connection with the youngest child,
a girl three years of age. It happened oue
dav in Nnvemlier that the father was re
turning from a drive, and as he neared his
house he noticed the dog in a past lire
which was separated by a stone wall from
the road. From behind this wall the collie
would spring up. bark mid then jump
down again, constantly repeating it.
leaving his hone and going to the spot, he
found his little girl seated on a stone, with
the collie wagging his tail and keeping
guard beside her.
In the light snow their path could lie
plainly seen, and its he traced it back he
saw where the little one bad walked sev
eral times around an open well in the pas
ture. Verv close to the britik were the
prints of the baby shoes, but still closer on
the edge of the well ware the tracks of the
oolite, w hich had evidently kept between
her and the well. I need not tell you the
feelings of the fat her as he saw the fidelity
of the dumb creature, walking between
the child and what might otherwise have
been a terrible death. Our Dumb Am
The Engagement Is Still Open.
She wanted a dressmaker and paid a
visit to where one lived, but found her not
at home. She learned from the dress
maker's sist.-r what was the price she
charged per day.
"Does she board herself?" was the next
question. This was answered in the nega
tive, and then, to the surprise and half
concealed amusement of the young woman,
"She couldn't bring a lunch in her
pocket, could But;?"
"Well. I don't think she could or
would," was the sister's rejoinder to the
woman's query. It is not to lie wondered
at that the seamstress did not accept the
engagement where the woman of the
house was too "close" to furnish her with
