' A plumber at Xarragansett had a horse 27 years old, which was used for carry ing around his master's material when that was necessary, but spent most of it3 time in a small pasture. A fox terrier. also belonging to the plumber, was an in separable companion of tuo old horse. When the old horse was harnessed to the cart the dog was on guard to see that nothing was stolen from tho cart. In the pasture the dog was always sniffing around the horse and was never so de-j lighted as when the horse would begin to roll in the grass, which it often did, ap parently to please the dog, which would jump abont in every direction and bark for pnro joy. j At iiiirht when the horse was put in t he barn the dug silways entered with its friend and slept on the animal's body.' One day the neighbors heard the most dismal howls coming from the pasture and found that the old horse had died.1 There was the terrier on the dead body,' howling out its sorrow and misery. The dog remained with tho body un'.il it was removed for burial. New York Tribune. A Pocket Life Saving Apparatus.
