The firt one to arrive after din ner was a short. thick man, with a red race and thick neck. The 'mad' could be seen while he was yet a block away. I'e came up, puffing and sweating, and waved his right arm around and exclaimed: 'If I V1has aroundt, I kill dot man who took my dog!' 'Y-e-s,' -replied the dog pound man-'your dog is gone, ch ?'

He was a great deal like her. He was a long, slim dog, with a vinegar express ion of countenance, and he snapp ed at every canine corning near him. 'That's him!' snapped the w04 man, 'aud the tnan W,ho put him in here ought to be horse-whippe( !' 'Do you want him?' 'Want him? D'ye s'pose I came (own here on a promifenad.'!
