Learning from a Puppy
The DM dog had sons out. I wonder
where It Is he takes to wandering of
Last night, when the moon was a rtl
yr half up there In
the turquoise and
Oliver skies, he ran
klown the little
path to the Rate,
Stopped a minute,

ran guess? Is there a particular cat he
Ira lit to catch down there In the broad
road? Can .It be that he hears the coyotes
Up on the brown hills barking, barking;,
like fretful puppies, every night Just
I knew a good dog once, a staid, re
spoctablo folmly dog, who went west
with the family and ran away and Joined
IiIb wild brethren In the hills.
At first he played with -them Just at
Busk, and ran out of the house at early
lawn tq follow them, And then he spent
Ihe whole night, then the day, and finally
if went away with them altogether.
Only once In a while did he appear
lining on a distant hill to watch the
ihlldren playing around the bonfire at
light, but when they called him by hi
kid name he threw up his head, sniffed
Ihe air an Instant, turned tall and ran
to the wilds again.
Can It be that our old dog Is going
lo go back to the caves? At any rate,
fee left the puppy alone In the house with
ne who sleeps early In the evening and
Uses, it teems to me, with the dawn.
Later In the evening I heard something
In tlie garden a cat most like.
"Come, boy," said I lo the puppy,
"come, Bo out and seo what's coming so
close to your house."
I opened the door, but the puppy
looked wistfully up Into my face. "Oh,-"
ho seemed to try to say, "Oh, I am so
young, and what If It should be a Hon or
But I was Inexorable, and all at once
the puppy's good blood spoke; he raised
Ms foolish head and plunged noiselessly
toward the soft footsteps In the garden.
"Good boy," I said. "Good old Raf
fles," for his name is Baffles since the
very day he came, when he tried to steal
every knife and fork from the first table
he had ever seen set.
"Good boy. Ttaffles." and Raffles
heard, and he lifted up his puppy voice
Vi a real bark. "Woof! woof!" dear me,

arms were almost covered
with run. I could not sleep
and lost SLneteen pounds In Are weeks.
My face was terribly red and sore, and felt
as If my skin was pa Ore. At last I tried
a sample of Cuticura Soap and Cuticura
Ointment and I found them so cool, sooth

Soap. Cuticura Ointment, and Resolvent.

then I applied the Cuticura Ointment every

what a fierce voles; It quite tsrrlfles me.
"Woof! woof!" said Raffles, the puppy
no more a real dog, with a dog's respon
sibilities, now that the old dog has taken
to wandering In his old age.
Foolish dog; he makes me think of
aome old men I know, old enough for a
chimney corner and out following the
footsteps of every beckoning hand. I do
hope he won't teach the pup such bad
"Good boy, Raffles," said I again when
the pup came In the house and oh, the
pride, the Joy of that pup! lie knew
what he had done.; he knew that he had
met his oall of responsibility as a dog
should, and he held his ragged head high
and grinned, and allowed every white
tooth In his faithful, Hffectlonate head.
"Wasn't I all right?" he said, with
every muscle of his wriggling body, and
I told, him "Tes, he was quite all right,"
and he knew what I said and gloried
And afterward, when the old dog cams
home, he ran to blm and pulled Ills ears
and grabbed him by the legs and threw
him down and mauled him to and fro,
and baxkod and acted so strangely that
the old doc watched him with suspicion
In hi eye.
Sineo then Raffles has taken charge nt
things In the house. Not a cricket chirps
but his wary1 ear rises to heed, and not
ft -shrub- stirs in ttie fall wind' but the
hair on the pup's bock ruffles; no one
Khali molest his household, not If that
pup knows It.,
Afraid? Not he. He was yesterday, but
yesterday Is past; It Is today now. And
It's his day at that, and bravely he's
going to live It In his doggish way.
Good old pup, good old Raffles. I
wonder If he Who sleeps so early at night
In the little bed yonder, and who rises at
the first peep of dawn, will rise as gal
lantly to his first trial of courage?
I hope so; oh, how deeply I do hope so!
Dear little brown thing that he Is, tanned
to the color of old mahogany with the
long, long summer days In the sweet
sunshine; brown and red Is he, and sturdy
and straight, and he haa his trials, too,
already. Dldnt he stub hi toe the other
day and never let a tear fall? They gath
ered; oh, yes, they gathered, but they
did not fall not In the sight of mortal
man or woman.
And when his little friend of the sum
mer went away and took his marbles
with him, did he not rush eagerly to the
defense of the absent one's reputation
when some one mentioned the mlselnn;
marbles? "He forgot them, I know he
did." said little four-year-old.
That was gallant of you, four-year-old;
maybe some day you'll be hs true to the
oall of duty as the pup was to his last
night. I wonder If you will?
PLMJE TO RAISE GOATS
The ancient and honorable thomrh murh

The report also calls attention to the In

What is the Ideal
Stenographers Have the Best Training for Matrimony,
Says Mrs. E. G. Ryser.
By FRANCES L. GARSIDK.
Cupid tapped three times with his bowl
on the hollow trunk of a tree. It was a '
signal for the next division of workln? j
girls to show proof why their calling de-1
veloped the best wives, and beforo the
sound bad died away thousands upon '
thousands of stenographers wero march
ing in line.
They had chosen for their spokesman
Mrs. H. O. Peyser, assistant principal In
one of New York's best known schools
for teaching shorthand, and their choice
did them greiat credit.
With the click, click, click of thousands
of typewriters furnishing a harmonious
accompaniment. Mrs. Peyser set forth the
claims for matrimony of the girls she rep
resented. "Business." she ald, "develop a girl
along practical lines. And no calling Is
better qualified to bring nut the qualities
t?iat make a good wife than that of tho
"The work of a Htenngrnpher toadies
her the vUue of accuracy, efficiency and
attention to detail, which will all bn nf

"Hhe has dally opportunity to study
human nature. Bhe learns what man Is
in his own element business; and shr
begins to understand life from a nwn'H
viewpoint, which will enable her to sym
pathlte more intelligently with her hus
band In all his problems.
"She must learn also, If he would be
successful, to be patient, self-controlled
and self-rellont; tolerant or others who
have not acquired these thing, anil
diplomatic and tactful with all. Tho ail
antago of such a training Is obvious. A
woman Is not only a better equipped
wife, but a more agreeablo social com
panion by reason of It.
The stenographer learns the value of
personal neatness and of making herself
at all times as attractive as possible
Husbands, as well as employers, are
pleased by reasonable attention to such
"Stenographers, as a class, are some,
times criticised, but always unjustly.
Statistics prove that tho good and bad
nre divided In that profession as they aie
In any walk of life; In business or In
the home. I have known many girls
when they entered the A, II, ("s of
shorthand, and have followed them till
they had reached positions of promlne-o
In business life, or were happily married,
and I can say that stenographers may
lay claim tn a larger percentage of per
aonal morality than women In many other
