Tlu* designation of the animals as
Haig's conipanions is correet. They
mijrht even be r*alled his "famiiy,"

no relatives nearer than New Zea

dogs as almost hnman. and says that

Years ago Haig was a soldier ln
the British army, and he still cher
ishes the lifelong belief of "Tommy
Atkins"?that the British soldiery ia
inviueible, and always Will be. ln
hia bachelor home he atill has the
uniform and arms he wore while in
aerviee, though the date of his soldier
ing is 30 years baek.
From his earliest days he loved
dogs and horses. and. while not a man
of means, he has nearly always man?
aged to have both. In the army be
was in the cavalry. and he owned
a hugc deerhouno that waa the maa*
cot of the regiment. ja
In 1888 Haig moved to this country.
He first settled in Kirkwood. but two
yeara later moved to Webater. Ha

bnilt a little two-room cottage in
"Wehster I^-ghts. whieh is his present
home. Here he keeps bachelor quar?
ter-.. He prepares his own meals and
does all his own work. On one aide
of the cottage is a small stable, where
he keepa hia horse "Bess." This is
a beautiful animal and knows its
master. By some subtle telepathy
**Bess" seems to know him when he
approaches and whinnies with delight
at his footsteps.
It is due to the malice of some of
his neighbors that ten of his peta
have been plaee-d under the sod in
ten years. All the dogs have been
Haig ia not very talkative. When a
reporter called and said that he had
heard of his liking dogs and of his
little cemetery, and that the pub?
lic. having also a place in ita regard
for dogs, might like to hear some?
thing about him, the old man smiled
and led the way to the strange grave
yard. The sight of the ten stone
alabs oiled his tongue somewhat.
The first bore the inscription:
"Medam," Entered Into Rest June 14,
"Medam," said Haig, "was a mas
tiff, and a beauty." Others were
marked "Bob." "Prince," "Mollie,"
and so on. Of each of his departed
friends, Haig had a word to say. One
waa a earriage dog, another a grey
hound, another a fox terrier; many
breeds were represented.
At present Haig has only one dog.
It ia a small Scotch terrier, and an
awere to the name of "Rags." **Itags"
ia a good-natured animal, and when
hia master goea out, the lively little
fellow expresses his enjoyment of
life by a series of sharp yelps, and
aeversd somersanlra in tbe air, exe
cuted with a marvelous agility. If
Haig condescends to caresa him,
"Rags" is simply earried away wlth
delight. His body seems converted
into a mass of vibrant muscle, whieh,
however, will not adrait ham to wag
hia tail to the full extent that he de?
The old man's love for dogs seems
to be reciprocated by the animala in
general. Dogs oi the neighbnrhood
make their rendeavoua at hiaibachelor
home, and walk in and out ot hia
open door as .if they owned the place.
ln matter of fact, perhaps, they do,
for Haig thinka nothing too -*v**-*-Tj for
a dog, and treata them as if they
were human beings.

Now. BSys the Chicago Tribune, a
new era of terror has BSfaad the
street. This time it is not a gang of
human beings. but a big "billy goat"
owned by Peter Maloney. an under?
taker. One day last week Mr. Ma?
loney called upon his friend Miehael
Met.arry. who lives over in Goose is?
"Why don't you take one of theae
goata home with you?" asked Mc
(jnrry. "Now that you have a livery
stnble, you have plenty of room to
keep it. Moreover, you know that
goats nre wholesome for horses."
"Sure," said Maloney, "that would?
n't be a bad idea, I think I will."
That night Maloney's livery stable
had a new boarder. Maloney built a
nice stall for the goat and called him
The goat was not accustomed to

which held him and breaking down
However, the real trouble did not
start until the next dny, when Mr.
Maloney let "Terry" out to get the

Maloney lives Mr. Schmidt, hia Ger?

any dog on the street. Now Mr.
Schmidt is mourning the loss of his
mastiff. Even the policeman on the
beat is in dread.
