Doctor Gladden also knew that his old dog, George, who never failed to ik at the minister when he passed the house, still lived. In the dream Doctor Gladden was passing the bouse when the door opened and the old gentleman came out, followed by George, who, as--usual, rushed barking up to Doctor Gladden. "Now, now, George," said the old man, "you ought not to do that. You know that's a frleud of ours; that's Doctor Gladden." "Oh I I have met .George before," responded Doctor Gladden In hla dream. "In fact George and I have for some time had a bow-wowing ac quaintance." Milwaukee Sentinel. Farms 8upply Wild Life Lots.
