banquet to his friends when a rat rush
ed Into the hall, followed by several
dogs, and. Jumping on the table, sat. up
before Lord Howth. as If appealing, for
protection. He saved.its life, and from
that moment it never quitted htm, At
last he set out on-a foreign tour, accom
panied by his brother, who persuaded
him to leaw the rat behind-
Sitting in a hotel at Marseille^ .the
door suddenly flew open, and tho rat,
dripping wet, came crawling to and
went straight to the Are to dry Itself,
Lord Howth's brother, enraged at the
intrusion, seized the poker and dashed
out tho rat's brains. *"Yba have mur
dered me!" exclaimed Lord Howth an4
