his eats, in the neighbor's pastures

bed and board, and never do mischief
or harm, while faithfully watching
the kids and the house, and all of the
stock on the farm?
"If he's not worth while in some
useful way and doesu't pay for his
care and keep, consign the cur io the
buried bow-wows, and end his raids
on the sheep." —University News
