w is a young hut he
|A 1 | looked like an old one.
HWJIW Wearily shambling along the
luGanf street, he stared hungrily at
the grocers' tempting windows. Oh
for :i taste-not of the hams and the
tongues, hut of the salted herring, the
creamy eodlish, the glistening heaps of
smeits in their wicker baskets!
All winter he had supported himself
in the most miserable of ways. .Now
spring was coming, and he was tired
out so very, very tired.
Uhe dogs of this Canadian city knew
that he was a stranger and had fought
him continuously. There were certain
streets, the host streets for pickings,
that he dared not enter. The shopping
streets were not good ones for scrap
boxes and barrels of rubbish, and he
had become hungry—very hungry and,
stopping short, he sat down on the
frosty pavement and looked disconso
lately about him.
No home, no master—anti he had been
brought up like a baby! These well
dressed persons contemptuously avoid
ed the place where lie sat. He was
dirty, and then- were sore spots ou
him where he had been bitten. Ladles
drew their skirts aside; children start
ed back in affright from his lean and
shaggy form, one little girl called
him a sheep. Another said, "Look,
mamma, at the funny wolf!”
I'oor, sad eyed dog! He was almost
tit the end of his power of endurance,
hut he did not know it. He thought he
would just lie down here on the hard
pavement in sight of the delicious mor
sels in the windows, and when he was
rested he would move on, on in his end
less quest for food.
He curled himself up in a bull, his
tired eyes were just closing closing in
a sleep which if begun would never
have ended—when he was roused by
an exclamation: Hello, dog! Von look
heat ot
He raised his head. A tall lad was
standing over him, an overgrown lad
with twinkling eyes, a thin jacket and
hare hands thrust into his pockets to
keep them warm.
The dog attempted to get on his feet.
This was the lirst kind word he had
heanl for many a day, hut, strangely
enough, his legs doubled under him
whenever he tried to stand on them.
"Blest if he isn't played out," pur
sued the boy. "Can't you stand up,
dog? Come, try again."
The animal did try again; his lip'
curled back in a feeble dog smile, hut
the strength was all gone out of his
limbs, and, gazing up helplessly into
the lad's face, he seemed to say, "it's
of no use better let me alone."
“Crieky!" observed the hoy. "Isn't
he queer looking? I believe he’s an In
dian dog. Some old Miemae from Hu*
camps hits brought him into the city
and deserted him. They often do when
food is scarce out there. Boor brute!
He hasn’t been able to pick up much of
a living in the streets, and he's starv
ing to death. How much of the need
ful have I about me?” And he drew
one red hand from his pocket. "Three
cents not it fortune; still enough to
buy sodas, 1 sa;.. mister," and he en
tered it nearby grocery, "give me 3
cents' worth of crackers.”
The grocer tossed the hoy a bag, and
he slipped out to the dog.
"Here, old man, eat some.”
The dog put out his pink tongue and
licked feebly at the crackers. What
was the matter with him? He wanted
to eat them, yet he could not.
"i'll tell you what, dog,” said the boy
briskly. “You're most sit the end of
.your tether. You want hot stuff inside
you. Come on home with me. If you
stay here it's all up with you. A police
man will catch you; then it's a shot in
that wolfy head of years and the bot
tom of the harbor. I'll help yu.”
The dog was absolutely unable to
move l , and the boy bent over him.
"Confederation! What a smell! I
guess you don't know what the inside
of a hath looks like. However, I'd he
dirty, too, if I’d never been washed,
and I'm not going to see a dog go un
der, if he doesn’t smell as sweet as a
rose. Here you go!" And, taking the
weary beast in his strong young arms,
he (lung him over his shoulder and
went staggering up the bill.
Every hoy that he met jeered at him.
and to every one he thing a saucy an
swer. In their hearts, he knew, they
were sympathizing, and if It had not
been close upon mealtime he would
Lave had a following of approving
When he reached the outskirts of the
city he began to talk to the dog.
“Do you see that litt !• cottage yon
der, with the yard about as big as a
pocket handkerchief? That's where I
live. Once we used to have a larger
house, hut, like you. I've come down in
the world. Father’s dead—only step-mn
and me left, dog. If It weren't for her
I’d take you right In the hack yard,
but It wouldn’t do, dog; It wouldn’t
The dog, of course, made no response.
In a weary heap he lay over the boy's
shoulder. He was In good hands, and
he was content.
"I'm going to take you to the dumps,
dog," said the boy, "and in case you’re
a stranger and don’t know what the
dumps are I'll Just explain that It's the
common where the ashes from the city
are dumped. I'll liud you a nice warm
heap and cover something over you.
Here we are; don't make a noise." And,
cautiously skirling the yard of the cot
tage. he made his way over the soft,
yielding heaps of ashes to a spot some
distance from his h une.
"There”—and he gently laid the dog
down "that's a nice bed for you! Now
for a roof to keep out the rain," and he
looked anxiously about, "t'ricky. there's
a p.e k ng ease!" And, springing up, he
ran like a deer to the place where a
large w idea box was protruding from
a heap of rubbish.

ou joyfully "Just The thing To keep
the rain out and an old barrel for a
front hall, by which you can enter
your mansion, dog,” and, dragging bis
spoils after him, be came back to the
place where the starving animal lay.
“Cold, ch?" and be laid bis band on
the dog's back. "No, you're not shiv
ering. You must be an Indian dug
think I'll call you Koojcmook. That’s
all the Micmac I know, and it means
'(let out!’ 1 guess Unit's what people
have been saying to you all winter.
Now, Isn't that snug?" And, carefully
toppling the box over the dog, be pull
ed off a couple of loose boards, titled
the barrel in the aperture, propped a
coal bod ami some battered tin cans
beside it, and finally had a rain proof
if not very elegant, kennel.
The dog made uo show of pleasure,
except that bis brown eyes followed
the boy wherever lie went. TUe look in
those eyes was enough. The boy un
derstood Hint.
"Now, Koojcmook," said the lad at
last, "1 must run over to the house,
but I’ll be back Just as soon ns I can
pull the wool over step ilia's eyes. She's
pretty cute, and it isn't easy to fool
her, but I’ll make a try. So long."
And, with n farewell tap on the box,
be started off for the cottage.
"is that you, Thaddy?” called a me
tallic voice as be was stamping bis
feet in the little back porch.
"Yes, ma'am," be said vigorously.
"You’re late," went on the voice.
“You've kept tea* waiting.”
"No. I'm not," said Vbaddy, still
stamping, “and 1 haven't mustn't
give up contradicting,her,” be went on
under bis breath, "or slic'd down me.”
"You’re getting careless," went on
the voice, and, stepping into the
kitchen, Thaddy found himself con
fronted by n small sized, black eyed
young woman, who held a toasting
fork in her band.
"If you won't run medhrougli. step
inn, I'll give you a kiss." said the boy.
with an extra twinkle in his eye.
The little woman lowered her fork.
She had a sharp tongue, but she loved
to be petted.
The boy's eyes were miming approv
ingly around the room. "Hood lire!
Nice tea! Step ma, how long has that
lire been lighted? It looks fresh, and,
upon my word, there is hardly a mite
of ashes."
Before the woman could prevent him
he had opened the stove door. "Now,
step-mu, you're been slitting in this
cold house without a speck of lire.’"
"I wasn’t cold,” she said stoutly. "I
was by the window In the sun. and I
had my big shawl on."
"That's what my Latin grammar
calls a fraus pin," remarked Thaddy,
“/ think J'll call you Koojcnwoh."

of your little nose is as red as a beet,
.lust you wait, though, till 1 get. to be
a man. I'll build tires big enough to

“Thank you,” said the woman smart
Thaddy jumped up from the table,
j "Oh, have maimers, boy!” be said
; roughly to himself. "Here you are sit
ting down to tin’ table before your
stepmother. You’re losing all your po
liteness, and if you haven't politeness
you'll never get on In the world." And
lie shook himself vigorously.
“You're n queer fellow. Thaddy,”
said his stepmother, spearing a piece
of toast In the oven.
Thaddy bent bis tall, ungainly form
In an ungraceful bow. ",iust what I
think about you, step ma."
The woman laughed. "Ob. well, we
get on you and I."
"Do I smell hot muffins?” asked
Thaddy, working his nose.
"Yes, boy," said his stepmother, “and
lots of 'em. I got reckless because
we're so near tln* end of the (lour bar
“Wouldn’t that he a good (line to get
careful?" remarked Thaddy cautiously
"The best of times," snapped the wo
man. "But, lackadalsy, I get tired some
times of being careful ami Just fed I

they arc. They're only warm* and over;
they were bake I this morning." And
she emptied a small panful of smoking
hot muffins in a plate ou the tabic.
".lust wait till 1 get to be a man,"
said Thaddy, moistening bis lips. "You
shall sit eating hot bread from morning
till night."
"And die of Indigestion," said Mrs.
Times dryly "Sit down, Thaddy. I'm
just going to light myself.”
"Will you say grace, blackbird, or
shall 1?” asked the boy gravely.
"You do it ibis evening, Thaddy,”
said the woman wearily. "I'm too ugly
to thank the Lord for anything."
"For what we are about to receive
may tin- laird make us truly thankful,”
murmured the hoy reverently.
•’Here’s a bowl of soup for you," said
Mrs. 'J'iinhs. getting up and going to the

As soon us Mrs. Timhs left the room
the boy tiptoed to the window. He
watched her cuter a cottage a short
distance down Uie street; then, rapidly
emptying the plate of mullins into his j
bowl of soup, lie darted from the house j
in the direction of the famishing dog.
"Here, dog," he said, pushing in tile i
bowl to liie sick animal, who lay lux
uriously on his bed of ashes; "1 wish
you were a few sizes smaller, but this
will help to till up.”
I. was dark Inside the box, but the
boy could hear the pleased and hurried
lapping of the starving animal.
Sitting hack on bis heels, he stared
across the dumps in a kind of comical
dismay. "He's going to live, and now

dog and slep-ma's nose getting sharp

1 believe 1 ought to have this dog put

tomorrow. Hello, boy. have you tin
The sound of lapping had ceased and
there was a scratching inside the box.
When the boy stretched out his hand
for the bowl he found the dog had
partly raised himself and was weakly
pawing the air.
"Blest if he Isn’t trying to shake
hands,” muttered the boy. "Some one’s
taught him that. Very well, old fel
low; you’re powerful dirty, still i b
not refuse to shake a paw. Ves, it's
all right. I'll not give you up to the
ponce not after that paw shake.
Juess 1 wouldn’t like any one to shoot
the life out of me. Hood night, now,
but before I go listen to me and take
another look at that brown cottage I
pointed out to you. Hon't you go near
it. There's a lady in it with double
barreled eyes and an awful mouth full
of swords and ears that can hear a
mile off. You’re a goner if you venture
mar her. D’ye hear?"
The dog did hear and understood.
He curled himself up on his bed, and.
hastily replacing his shelter, the boy
ran back to the house.
When his stepmother returned he
was at the sink, whistling cheerfully
and washing his soup bowl.
"Was It nice, ThaddyV” asked Mrs.
“Lovely, stop-mu.” replied Thaddy.
"I guess if you Just know how that
soup was appreciated you’ll think you
were tin* host cook in creation.”
“I thought you woron't very font! of
soup. Tlnultly," sho said suspiciously,
“but 1 Just had to make that because I
hail the bones.”
"Step-ma." said Thaddy solemnly,
“can't you believe me when I toll you
that that soup wont right to the spot V"
“Vos, I believe you, Thaddy. You've
never told me a lie yet,” she returned
Thaddy at once became dejected and
stifled a heavy sigh as he put his bowl
on the dresser and went to a cupboard
for his schoolbooks.
“Isn't it too soon to work after eat

•'No," said Thaddy soberly, "it isn't.”
“I should think you'd want to rest
awhile if you’ve disposed of all those
mullins,” continued Mrs. Titnbs, with a
gesture toward the empty plate on the
The boy's eyes twinkled. “Strange to
say, they make me feel more like work.
I'm Just crazy to get education enough
to start in business,”
“You'll get on. Thaddy." said the wo
man proudly, "if you keep up your
steady ways."
“I'm going to get on," said the boy
and iggedly. "Work doesn't scare me.
Fact is, I love it. Now, what has my
brain got to get outside of tonight? A1
gebra. geometry, modern history and
geography.” And lie piled his books up
in front of bis seat at the table.
Ills stepmother pushed the lamp
nearer to him. and the boy, sitting
down, was soon absorbed In his tasks
Presently she heard him snickering
“What’s the matter, boy?" she asked,
looking up from her darning.
“I'm reading about the Eskimos, step
tna. They're awful eaters. Two Kskl
inos will easily dispose of a seal at a
sitting, and a man will lie on his back
and allow his wife to feed him tidbits
of blubber and llesh ninii lie unable
to move."
"Pigs!" said Mrs. Timbs shortly.
“And the other evening." continued
Thaddy, "I was reading that in some
parts of India there is such a scarcity
of food that many natives never know
what It is to have a full meal. They |
do not starve to death, but they are al
ways mildly hungry."
“1 guess some white people know
that feeling." observed Mrs. Timbs
Thaddy looked at her sharply; then

his book, he laid Ins head down on his
arm. "Oh, Lord, it's hard to be so
