that they would be trying fish In that

But it so happened. And when the odor
of th fresh fish reached the seal there

to call th captain's attention to the fact
that they had not been fed sine Sunday
night, although ordinarily they ate their
three meals per day, but subsided finally
with a rebellious and complaining whine.
Nellie, a sleek and intelligent seal, was
asleep in her crate. Suddenly she
flopped about, rubbed her eye with th
sole of her foot and began to bellow
It wa not a grunt nor a howl, but

Den until every shepherd, pug, grey
hound and mongrel within the enclosure
stood frozen, with fear and foreboding,
A black and quarrelaom eur, who
acknowledged neither fear nor forebod

quick yelp and bounded to th crates

effort to reach the noisy newcomer his,
