No Floor Commendation of Man's
Best Friend Ever Given
Maiterly Effort
Probably the finest tribute ever
paid to dogs was that embodied in
an address to a jury In Missouri by
Senator George C. Vest many years
ago. The circumstances surrounding
this bit of oratory are these: A feud
Lroke out between two neighbors
and one shot the other's dog. 'The
dog was of that type which might be
bought for f 10 a dozen almost any
where, yet the owner sued the killer
for 200. The defense maintained
that tho dog a mongrel hound
was virtually without value.
The courtroom was crowded for
the trial for Senator Vest was known
not only as a lover of dugs, but as
a fluent orator as well. His address
to tho jury was a masterpiece of its
kind. It is recorded thut thero was
not a dry eye in the courtroom at
its conclusion. Tho jury awarded
tho owner of tho dead dog $500
and somo of the jurors even wanted
to hang the offender.
An extract of the address which
has been widely circulated and which
hangs, framed, in the homes of many
dog lovers follows:
"Gentlemen of tho Jury: Tho
best human friend a man has In the
world may turn against him and be
come his enemy. His son or daugh
ter that ho has reared with loving'
care may prove ungrateful. Tlwc
who are nearest and dearest to us,
those whom we truht with our hap
piness and our good name may be
come traitors to their f;tith. The
money that a man has he may lose.
It flies away, from him. perhaps,
when he needs it inont. A man'e re
putation may lie sacrificed in a
moment of ill-considered action. The
people who are prone to fall on their
knees to do us honor when succors

the stone of mnlicc when failure set

one absolutely unxolfiHh friend tlmt
man can have in this selfish world,
the one that never deceives him, the
ono that never proves ungrateful
and treacherous. Is his dog.

Naturally most of these homes

strides have been made toward ex

tricts as welL
In a majority of the states of the
Union, as well as in many sections
of Canada, a practical program of
rural electrification is being worked
out Thi program is generally pur
sued through the cooperation of ag
ricultural colleges, fanner organisa

problem of the electrical industry is
today receiving more attention than
that of bringing electric service to
the farms and farm homes. '
While the resulting benefits have
been general, they have perhaps
meant most to those farm women
whose daily burdens have been
lightened through the introduction
into their homes of electric light,

electric line which threads its way
across the countryside mean3 eman
