Flea-Bitten Dog Now the Mascol 01 Great Confederate Monument Workers Risked Lives to Rescue "Plain Mut," Which Somehow Climbed Face of Cliff. ATLANTA, Sept 6 (Coprrlsht). The wonderful monument to the Con federacy being created by dutron Borglura, to cover tho fnce of Stone Mountain, rising In the midst of a flat plain fifteen miles from Atlanta, has & mascot. stf Flea-bitten, runt-slze, nibbling bones at the very foot of the great liv ing granite pile, this animal a dog of no pedigree or appearance watches the work go on. But no one can get blm to climb again toward the top of the mountain. And to-day tho reason was divulged a reason that, I after all. appeals to all who have hiard It. The monument, which la to be big ger than the pyramids, designed, In foot, to be the mightiest memorial In the world'a history, was forgotton while workmen dangling by ropes from posts of extra mo danger, labored noarly an entire day tii resoue the dor some call him cur, but numbered In this category aro none of tho men who have witnessed his obvious grati tudefrom whero he crouched, a quaking mite of fear, perched on the outmost edge of a ledge half way down the shoer mountainside. How the dog got there no one has been able to guoss. The granite pile rises almost straight up and measures T6 feet from top to bottom. Its apex bolng 686 feet In height. In circum ference It covers 561 acres and It con tains 7,B, 750,950 cublo feet of gran ite, the engineers say. Furthermore, It is not a mass of atones, but one Ingle, solid, wonderful rock, sticking up from the earth, as queer a forma tion u the world oan present. The ledgo on which the dog was discovered la 800 feet from the top. Had the mongrel dropped he would have been Instantly killed. To have climbed up or down tho side of the mountain would, It seems, have re quired the sticky feet of a fly. It would appear that the only creature that could reach this ledge In safety would be one of the buzzards that clrole about the top, or some one lowered by a rope. Tho dog wan about at the point where the giant figure of den. Robert 10. Lee, leading his army of Northern Virginia, will be carved. When the memorial la completed a great army of men will be shown marching across the faoe of tho mountain. The figure of Qen. Leo will be thirty feet high while, strung Along behind him will bo "Stonewall" Jackson and the other Confederate leaders, of lesser size, surrounded by figures representing all branches of the military service Tho dog was discovered, by, workers who were preparing to erect scaffold ing. Hopes were brought and, after considerable risk, a man was lowered to the ledge. The sharp, jagged edgea of the rock, threatened to cut the rope and the man was oom polled to utilize his hands and feet, elbows and knees to make the trip In safety;. The work of hauling him back was equally as formidable a task. First, howover, he wrapped the dog la a blanket and set blm aloft. After being fed and wornod the canine was taken to the foot of the mountain and now Is the official masoot of the memorial work-ara. The monument was planned just he- I fore the beginning ot the World War and a start had been made so that the actual chiselling of the figures wus Initiated. But tho developments of Hip war compelled halt. To-day Borglum Is bade on the Job bad hopes this time to pursue Ills great work to a finish. And he and I an of his assistants rather Incline to I the belief that tho flea-bitten nonde ticrlpt dog will be a real mascot, bring ing all hands the best of luck. 56 MOTORISTS IS GOSHEN HAUL Record Arrests Net Vil lage Treasury $.100.
