WHAT JOIXY DID BEST
made a hunte doutcast from -the society he loves?
No plea for the dog is complete without quoting the
late Senator George Graham Vest, of Missouri:
"The one absolute, unselfish friend that a man can
have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him,
the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous, is
"A man's dog stands by him in prosperity and in pov
erty, in health and in sickness. He will sleep on the cold
ground, where the wintry winds blow and the snow drives
fiercely, if only he can be near his master's side. He will
kiss the hand that has no food to offer, he will lick the
wounds and sores that come in the encounter with the
roughness of the world. He guards the sleep of his pauper
master as if he were a prince. When all other friends
desert, he remains.
"When riches take wings and reputation falls to
pieces, he is as constant in his love as the sun in its jour
ney through the heavens. If fortune drives the master
forth an outcast in the world, friendless and homeless,
the faithful dog asks no higher privilege than that of ac
companying him, to guard him against danger, to fight
against his enemies.
"And when the last scene of all comes, and death
takes his master in its embrace and his body is laid away
in the cold ground, no matter if all other friends pursue
their way, there by the graveside will the noble dog be
found, his head between his paws, his eyes sad, but open
in alert watchfulness, faithful and true even to death.
During the world war, the warfare upon dogs was in
augurated by some of the valient who stayed at home and
proved their valor by slaughtering the dogs under the
pretense of conserving food. Yet these home warriors
were put to shame by the dogs sent to the war zone,
where, in the trenches, in no-man's-land, and on the bat
tlefield, they played a distinguished part in winning the
We were told by legislative log-rollers that dogs must
go in the country, because a few of them kill sheep yet
for every sheep killing dog there are a hundred herding
and protecting flocks. Hence a state tax and authoriza
tion for wholesale slaughter of dogs on sight by county
We are informed by councilmanic wiseacres that the
city is no place for dogs and the spuerintendent of streets
is promoted to dog-catcher to place them in durance vile

proved his value, not only as a companion of children and
guardian of the home, but as a member of the police force
as a thief-catcher. Some of them take the place of child
ren among the frivolous but this is a plea for real dogs
not pampered poodles.
What Salem needs is an ordinance licensing the dog
under whatever restrictions deemed essential. Muzzle
the dog. if deemed necessary, safe-guavd the public as
needed, but make it possible for man to keep his truest
friend, the dog, without practising cruelty to animals. If
the council cannot rise to the occasion, the initiative
should be invoked.
Jolly Robin had something on his
mind. For several days he had turn
ing a certain matter over in his head.
But' in spite of all his thinking, se
seemed unable to find any answer to
the question that was troubling him.
So at last he decided he would have to
ask somebody to heln him.
And that was why Jolly stopied
Jimmy Rabbit near the garden one:
"I want your advice," he told Jim
"Certainly!" that young gentleman
replied. And he Bat himself dow n upon
his wheelbarrow and looked very earn

"What have we done?" I asked. I
"What shall we do?" he atiked in re
turn. "Ruth must never know,' I said.
"Ruth must know immediately," he
"I shall go away and never seen you
again," I declared.
"You will stay right here, whore my
arms can find you, any time, and suit
ing the action to the word he drew me
close to him again.
"Hut Ruth loves you! You are the
father of her children!"
No Effect on Ik'r Heart.
"Kuth does not love me, although 1
am the father of her children. Ruth
loves her children and is grateful to
me for them. The knowledge of your
love and mine may hurt her pride, but
it will have no effect upon her heart.
Why, my dear, should we make oursehr
es perfectly miserable In all the years
to come, for the sake of what the world
may say in connection with its precon
ceived Ideas of Ruth's life and mine?"
Katherine, I loved him loved him
so that I do not believe I would, have
been strong enough not to have taken
him from Ruth at any cost. 1 humbled
my pride and went to Ruth and told
her just what I have told you. Then
1 knew that Rob was right, her pride
was touched, hut not her heart, for
she said to me:
"Take him, but I want to tell you
that he Is nut worth the taking. He
certainly is not worth the keeping. I
have all that life ran give to make me
happy my children,, and 1 shall be
happier when I know I hat I will not
have to divide their love with any
one!" My mind refused to picture a wo
man like Ruth. 1 slopped reading for

to have some regular work, you know.

uie what would be a good business for

rnr a few minutes Jimmy Rabbit
did not speak. But he nodded his
"Let me see!" he said at last.
"What's the thing you do best?"
Jolly Robin replied at once that he
thought he could fly better than he
could do anything else. And he felt
so happy, because he was sure Jimmy
Rabbit was going to help him, that he
began to laugh gaily. And he couldn't
help singing a snatch of a new song
he had heard that morning. And then
he laughed again.
"You're mistaken," Jimmy Rabbit
said to him. "You fly well enaugh, I
dare say. But there are others who
can beat you at flying No!" he
declared, "what you can do' better
than anvbodv I know is to laugh. And
if I were you I should make laughing
my regular business.
That idea struck Jolly Robin as be
ing so funny that he laughed harder
than ever. And Jimmy Rabbit nodded
his head again, as if to say, "I'm right
and I know It!"
At last Jolly Robin stopped laugh
ing long enough to ask Jimmy to ex
nijiin how anvonp could make a busi
ness of laughing. "I don't see how It
could be done," said Jolly Robin.
"Why It's simple enough!" Jimmy
