Master Rot up and put on his coat am

patted me on the head, and spoke quit,
gently, "I'm sorry I hurt you, Wrecker

"only a bow-wow," My very soul
I followed him for a block or so un

nd darted down the street.
I found a garbage can and tried to
ertract a little breakfast from It, but
hPd no appetite. I kept thinkina of
Master and the breakfast waitins- f-"
f"e at home.
Pretty soon children commencing go

and showed my teeth, and the little
f'rls all drew away from me and said,
Oh, he's awful, he'll bite," and then
they ran as hard as they could, me af

were quite right in calling nr? mad.
All out of breath. I finally came to n

1 walked and walked, and finally cam
t- a beautiful looking place, called :
' ark, and was strolling along in a med
native sort of a way when suddenly
I heard some one say, "Why, isn't that
Dick Sargent's dog?" and another
ice said, "it surely is." I look'-i
f round, ready to run, but stopped short
for I saw a man and a lovely lady, the
lovely lady of the automobile. I
snarled, for I felt pretty sure the lady
in spite of her loveliness, was the cause
of all my trouble, and I didn't feel
very kindly toward her.
It's a queer thing, but the lovelier la
des are, the mor disturbance they
fct-em to create.
In spite of my bad manners, howev
fi, she came straight to me. "Don't
tcuch him," warned the man, raising
'IP cane; "He's awfully savage, they
say;" but the lady leaned over and
ratted me on the head and said in th"
sweetest, dearest voice, "Poor little
(hap, is he a tired lost doggie? well,
I'l' take him home with me and let his
master know right away," and with
that she picked me up in her arms rind
held me close, right against a big

licked her little gloved hands and
r. ach 'd up and licked her pink cheek
and I thought i saw tears In her beau
tiful exes, and I'm sure she murmured
lr my nock. "IVar Pick."
She made the man call a bans an. and
when he had put us I", he raise, 1 oi
hot and said he had an ngagennMil

then a little pause; 1 suppose Master
was saying something, for her eyes
rrew bright with tears ami mere wcv
lars in her voice, too, when she said.
"Yes, yes, indeed. Dick, but I thought
cu didn't care." At this point I licked
ler hand, for I was anxious to be In
tioduced into the conversation; sh-
h'.ughed down at me "And Dick." she
ct ntinued, I have your dog Wrecker,
here with me, picked him up In th?
rark, but I don't care to give him back
unless the reward is sufficient: will you
ci me up and talk it over?"
A queer sound came over the wire
it almost sounded like a sob. and Kath
arine said: "Yes, come right away.''
Then we waited tcgeth.T on a big
touch, and in just a little while "Mr.
Sargent" was announced, and Kath
erine said: "Yes, come right away.'
Then we waited together on a big
icuch, and In just a-little while "Mr.
Sorg-ant was announced, and Kath
erlne picked me up In her arms and
went straight to him, and Master,
without a word, put his arms around
both of us, and I shall dream always
:i the look in his eyes when he bent
and kissed the lovely lady Katherin.
I gave them each one wild look and
jumped to the floor, but I wasn't long
forgotten. Master bent over me and
took my head in both his hands.
Wrecker," he said, "you have brought
me the only good thing life has ever
h?ld for me; I owe this beautiful lady
t you. and I owe you to her, since she
found you," here I protested with a
?.i owl. but Master protested firmly.
