Friendship I!etwt-en a Ilorso niul a Pog. '
A plumber at Xarragansett had a horse
27 years old, which was used for carry
ing around his master's material when
that was necessary, but spent most of it3
time in a small pasture. A fox terrier.
also belonging to the plumber, was an in
separable companion of tuo old horse.
When the old horse was harnessed to the
cart the dog was on guard to see that
nothing was stolen from tho cart. In
the pasture the dog was always sniffing
around the horse and was never so de-j
lighted as when the horse would begin to
roll in the grass, which it often did, ap
parently to please the dog, which would
jump abont in every direction and bark
for pnro joy. j
At iiiirht when the horse was put in t he
barn the dug silways entered with its
friend and slept on the animal's body.'
One day the neighbors heard the most
dismal howls coming from the pasture
and found that the old horse had died.1
There was the terrier on the dead body,'
howling out its sorrow and misery. The
dog remained with tho body un'.il it was
removed for burial. New York Tribune.

A Magnetic Dctectcr.
A clever contrivance has been invent

magnetizable metal, such as needles,
tacks, steel and iron chips, cte., that may
have entered the human body unawares
and hidden themselves in the skin or
deeper tissues. The instrument was de

essentially of a partiallj- astatic combi

pended within a glass tube, the tube be
