Last winter when allow covered the
face of tin- earth a* water* cover the
mighty deep, a little Rlackfoot box
wu* made proud owner of u little ealf.
They »««ni began to love one another,
and to talk for hours together— the
little boy in pel names and words of
kindness amt love, and the little calf
in answer» back of mute expre*»ions
nnd »ign* of reciprocal kindness ami
equal love. When the spring time
curne ami Ihe hill* began to look
green ami beautiful with grass ami
flowers, the little calf with a strange
herd was sent to the far-away hills on
the upper Blackfoot river. The little
boy wept. He feared that some evil
would befall <he poor little ealfy.
There would he no.me to love lier and
pet her. He feared that some mav
lerick hunier would lake her and drive
her away with a still stranger herd—
that some bail ugly range steer might
gore her witli his wide spreading
horns or that wild beasts of prey
might kill her ami devour her. For
weeks and weeks ho thought of hi*
little "Nellie" and of what might be
her cruel fate. Time rolled on, sum
mer came, the grass wilted in the hot
sun and lire dowers tiegau to fade;
then came mountain trusts and cattle
men begun to collect their beef cuttle
for market. In one of these herd.
the little boys calf was driven to town,

neck and stroked her face lovingly
with his hand; stie gently rubbed her
head against his body and said in her
plain calf talk; "My little master

will repuv you for all your kindness."
