Yesterday morning the attention of
several railroad men and twice as

tle boy near Brick Row, running to

Trout Run Sewer, and bawling im?
mensely. Thinking that perhaps a
ronipanion had fallen in and was in
danger of being drowned, they rushed
to the lamenting individual," only to
find that the little follow's grief cen?
tered on a small dog of his which was
