From the Louisville Collier-Journal
A very, very tough story, in which
a chicken, a rat. a cat, a dog and a
boy figured, was going the rounds in
the East End yesterday. The story
is vouched for by good authority, and
6c this account is 'all the more ri
markable. It is related that Mr. Sam
McOurdy was sitting beneath the
shade of a tree in the back yard of
his residence on Clay, near Franklin
street, talking to snme friends, when
his attention was called to a hen with
a brood of young chickens and a
large rat that had just emerged from
its bole and was quietly regarding the
young chickens with the prospect of
a meal in view. As the rat came
from his hole the house-cat awoke
from her afternoon nap' end caught
sight of the rat. Crouching low, she
awaited developments, and stood
prepared to spring upon his ratship!
At the appearance of his ancieut en
emy, the cat,' a Scotch terrier, which
had been sunning itself in the wood
shed, pricked up its ears ami quietly
made for the place where the cat
stood. At this moment a hoy named
Andy Quaid came upon the scene.
The chickens were not cognizant of
being watched by the rat, nor did the
rat see the cat, nor the filiue the dog,
who had not noticed the coruiug of
the boy. j i
A little chick wanderd too nigh and
he was seized by the rat, which wai
in turn pounced upon by the cat, and
the cat was caught in the mouth of
the dog. The rat would nol cease his
hold ou the chicken, and the cat, in
spite of the shaking she was getting
from the dog, did not let go the rat.
It was fun for the boy, and in high
glee he watched the contest and the
struggle of each of the victims. It
seemed to him that the rat was about
to escape after a time, and getting a
stone he hurled it at the rat. The
aim was not good and the stone hit
the dog right between the eyes and
the terrier released its grip on the cat
and fell over dead. It had not breath
ed its last before the cat in turn let go
the rat and turned over and died.
The rat did not long survive the ene
my, and by the side of the already
dead chicken he laid himself down
and gave up the ghost.
, The owner of the dog was so angry
at his death that he is said to have
come near making the story complete
by killiug the boy that killed the dog
that shook the cat that caught the
rat that bit the chicken in the yard
on Clay street.
