Why Old Idea is Wreng Is Proved by th
Incdents Related by English on
Writer. tb
I have read an article In which a b
o trapper denies that animals have a to
real memory, says a writer In the Lon- of
I don Times. He admitted that most of I
them knew enough to avoid a trap at
ter an experience or two with it, I
y but contended that this was merely
a manifestation of the self-preserva- 1h
tion Instinct.
The same man cited an Instance- t
not at all unfamiliar-of a dog's re
Susing to hunt with a man who had Pr
kicked him. He said that this too
was only the instinct of all living e,
creatures to avoid injury. ti
Animals do have memory-at least n
some of them do. The trapper's theory
would not explain those many evi- th
dences of recollection wherein self
preservation plays no part. I once i
carried a fox-terrier into the house
- after he had been well-nigh killed by th
an automobile. His master had just ! re
moved into the apartment house, and
I had never seen the dog before that "n
- day. We moved away two days later, r,
and I did not see the terrier for over
four months. Then one day I passed
the house-or was about to do so-;
when out came that dog, wagging his in
stubby tail. He jumped all over me,
in joyful recognition-and memory.
11 An amusing story, significant on this 9,
subject, is told by my father. As a -
boy he lived on a farm, and was al- Cl
ways a close student of animal nature.
The mare he usually drove was old F,
and fat, and would never go faster elr
than a walk unless urged. There were fO
two roads to town, one branching off st
from the other and a little shorter. It an
- had been Old Maud's custom to take
this road, of her own volition, until on pe
one occasion a vicious dog barked at i
her and snapped at her legs. After in
that the driver had to be on his guard; ;
1. Maud would speed up when about 50 th
q yards from the turn-off and try to get sit
- by it before she could be restrained. ti`
This showed not only memory, but st
a sense for planning. -i
