The country homes of the Rudds and our family adjoined, and Waller Rudd and I giew up together, bosom friends. Walter was fond of animals, 1 of books. Among his pets was a yellow collie, the most intelligent being of the brute creation I ever knew. I remember especially an instance in evidence of this One rainy day, need ing exercise, I concluded to walk around the house Dick, the dog, was with me and, seeing me getting on my hat and coat, inferred that I was going for a stroll and was rejoiced at the prospect of going with me. There were two gates to the place, and when I came to the path leading to the near est Dick was there. 1 kept on Dick looked up. surprised: but. inferring that I was intending to go out of the other gate, immediately went to it. When I passed the path leading to that gate, too, Dick's astonishment was be yond bounds "What does the fellow mean?" he said plainly with his atti tude and expression. Then, seeing that I was not leaving the grounds, he went away disappointed One morning I was awakened by a scratching mingled with a dog's moans at our front door. I went downstairs and found Dick. He ran down toward the gate, indicating that I Avas to fol low him. I was not long in under standing him and after getting on some clothes went with him to a wood several miles^away. He led me to a point near a brook, but when he got there looked about him surprised and disappointed, moaning piteously. Then, putting his nose to the ground, he fol lowed a scent to the brook, where ho lost it. All this was unintelligible to me After waiting developments and get ting none 1 went home. I found there a messenger from the Rudds to ask if Walter had spent the .night with us, since he had not come home. At once 1 began to suspect that something was wrong with him, and the dog's action might be an explana tion Possibly there had been foul play at the spot where Dick had led me, and some person or persons to conceal their tracks from the dog had gone away, walking in the brook. 1 took Dick back to the spot and led him both up and down the stream in the hope that he would pick up the scent but, notwithstanding a patient effort on the part of both of us, he failed. The case of Walter Rudd was one of those mysterious disappearances that occur every day, the bulk ot them nev er being explained. Dick, being de prived of his master, adopted me as such. I being that master's most inti mate friend. I became very fond of him and never went anywhere I could take him without doing so. The first winter that I went to the city 1 left him behind, but the caretaker of the house wrote me that he was pining away, and I sent for him., Walter Rudd had been teller in a bank. The cashier was Edward Grif fin, a young man who a couple of years later became rich as a promoter. I knew Griffin, but had only a speak ing acquaintance with him. One day while in the city walking with Dick on the street I saw Griffin approach ing.

Bring your pails. 24-tfc and only great elfoit on my part kept the dog troni taking the man by the throat I caught Dick by the collar and dragged him :u\ay. striking him with my cane at the same time. Grit fin seemed very much affected by the encounter, paling and trembling like a leaf, but I was not surprised at this, as it is no light matter to ha^e a dog suddenly spnng at one's throat I did not have an oppoitunity to apologise to the man. tor Dick as so eagei to get at him again that I was obliged to drag him away by main force, and Griffin hurried on Had Griffin been some rough un known man i might have suspected that the dog's action had something to do With the mystery attending Walter Rudd's disapearance As it was. 1 put it down to or of those tiii-iccount able dislikes a dog will take to some especial person. But some mouths after this, when Griffin's schemes turned out burst bubbles and lie no better than a cwimon swindler, the thought came upon me that while he and Walter were in the bank together the cashier might have had some reason tor getting lid of the teller. I asked the presideut^of the bank for information bearing on the case and was confidentially informed that dur ing the time referred to Griffin had been carrying a large defalcation, which was discovered only after it was made good. After consultation with the Rudd fam ily I was authorized to employ a de tective to get evidence, with a view of confirming our suspicious. It turned out that Rudd knew of Griffin's defalcation and had told Griffin thac his duty required him to inform the officers of the bank Grif fin made an appointment to meet Rudd in the wood to talk the matter over Griffin murdered the only man who kaew his secret and left the body where it lay. He came back and found the dog with it. But the dog went iway. and Griffin carried the body far down the stream and buried it. Griffin, learning that a detective was working on his case, committed sui cide. Dick is still my companion, though he is very old.
