The animal wagged his tail and whined w hen he saw the men, and seemed gladened at the prospect of being liberated from prison. In another portion of the cone-shaped celi was the carcass of a cow. I'y some freak of the rushing waters the dog and cow \vt re caught in this pen on June 2, the cow beiiu crushed in the jam of logs.
