Of i dog, a huge inastif', kept as a
watchdog by a Staffordshire gentle

chained In the stable yard, and during
the very hot weather ono of the
grooms, noticing the creature panting
with heat, threw a bucket of cold wa

A week later the dog was loose
when the sitie man entered the yard.

by the throat and killed hii.
A toniehing little episode happened
a few yeatrs ago In a Worcester vil
lage. A boy was the prouid owner of
a very handsome pair of fox terriers,
named Miek and Jerry. Jerry went off
one day Into a wood nettr by and
tackled a badger, whieh killed him.
Iaymond, his master, went out to look
for hin, but could not ind hieh. But

France Seeks Mauritius.
'T'hero Is at movement in France to
ask Great Britain for the return of
Mauritius, the Beloved Isle of France,
which wits lost in 1810. It Is contend
ed that, in spite of being under Brit
ish rule for over a hundred years, the
island is still essentially 1rench, and
that the peoplet desire uion with
their mother country,
Great Brtain has no particular rea
son for keeping the Island, says the
Newcastle Chronicle. It has no stra
tegic or economic imp~ortanice, nor has
It any sentimental associations, so far
as Great Britain is concerned. For the
Firencht, on the other hand, it is the
place to whtleht many of their nobles
emiigrated, and1( is the islantd which
Bernardlin St. P'ierre immttortatlized in
