bring tlie slipper and lav tliem at liif

or tauirlit to do so. It KM the custom
of Mrs. Lane to have her little daujrh.
ter kneel before lier and say lief pray

Beauty, after quietly obseivlng tlie
devotions for a tew evenings, would
invariably creep up to the little girl'"
side, and laying it head between its
paws in a reverential manner, remain
in that position until the prayer was
Huislasl. Other evidences of surpris

ty, which endeared him to the nmily.
Two years ago Mr. Lane lost Beau

loss was keenly felt by Mr. and Mrs.
Lane and Iheir daughter. Since that

"It was about that time that some

At tbc least attempt on the part of
Mr. Moffat to coax him down, Beauty
