A Doff Story Worth Rending.
There are few travelers on the
Harlem liailroad who have not
heard of the educated dog at Scars
dale depot. His name is Knapp.
He is the property of Mr. George
ITllman, the station-master.
Knapp is a shepherd dog, about
two feet highland is covered with
a dark-brow ii fhaggy coat of fine
hair. He was born in the Scotch
Highlands nearly four years ago
In his infancy Knapp was imported
at considerable trouble by a
gentleman of Scarsdale, who, being
suddenly called to Europe shortly
afterward, gave him to Mr. Ullraan.
Noticing genius and intelligence in
Knapp, Mr. Ullman began to train
him. Now Knapp can perform
many wonderful feats. He has
been taught to assist his master in
the performance of his duties
around the depot. Knapp has
learned to tell by the clock when a
train is due; and at uight when
the bands point to the proper hour
Knapp takes a lantern in his mouth
and stands on the platform with
tire light guiding the engineer to
the stopping place. Knapp knows
an express train from a mail train,
and a mail train from a way train.
In day time when an express tram
approaches the station and the
track is iolear Knapp shows a white
flag, which signifies all is well.

Knapp consults the clock, every
day for the arrival U the mail

PKECATTTIO.VS AGAINST ACCIDENTS
When freight trams bcr.n to
switch' cars at the depot Knapp
always takes a red nag and tints
up or down the track;,, as ,the case
may be, and nags any train that
heaves in sight. Knapp always
keeps his iwsition faithfully until
called in by signals, just as shy
other flamnaii is. iUisnneera all
know Knapp, and faithfully act
upou his. signals. After the de
part tire ot freight trains Knapp
often walks down the track and
carefully examines the switches to
see that the brakeraen have left
them all right. Satisfied that no
blunder? have been made, he walks
back, to the depot, and if the clock
shows him that he has a few leisure
moments he signifies to his master
a desire for a pipe. Mr, UHman
has taught him to smoke, and he
always keeps Knapp's pie ready
for lighting WlieVi he calls for it.
The pipe heii'g lighted, the animal
sits on a cl nir iwi smokes with as
much appa ent ea a-d comfort as
Mr. Vllman is a good musician.
He ha a piirio in the ladies' room
of the depot, and often performs on
it Knapp.. has been taught to
sing or whine the tunes which Mr.
Ullman plays. The dog often
perches himself on a chair beside
his master with his fitfe feet on the
piano frame, and accurately: tun
the sheets of, music with his tongue.
Knapp tyiu waltz, dance a schot
tische or a polka as well as any
one can mi tour legs.
ItEST.XUNfi AN INSULT.
Of late some of the mischievous
brakemen have thrown snow-balls
at Knapp just as tbe trains started,
or have made ugly faces or stamped
their feet at fiim. He seemingly
took no notice of these insults, but
on Monday one of the brakeman
went into the depot to get a drink
of water. When he started out
Knapp stood in the door and would
not allow him to move: He made
a movement as though about to
administer a kick, and Knapp
opened his month and uttered a
growl, which convinced the brake
man that Bach a iroceeding would
be dangerous. Knapp kept his
prisoner in the room until the train
had gone so far that the brakeman
couldn't catch it, and then releasing
him, Knapp walked away as un
concernedly as though nothing
unusual had occurred.
Since that time the brakemen
have been exceedingly civil to
Knapp, but he treats them with
lofty indrfference.-Ar. K Sun.
