We note by a recent number of
the Mid-Week Pictorial, which con
tains “ News o f the World in Pic

One picture is entitled, “ Ready for
a Spin” in which is a small wagon
and in it are seated the little son and
daughter of L. A. Salade, Jr. The
children have one dog hitched to the
wagon, while beside the wagon is
another small white dog, ‘sitting up,’
presumably begging to be included
in the group o f travelers, or pos
sibly he is only asking for a morsel
of food held in the little girl’s hand.
The other picture is entitled, "Big
ger Than His Master,” and shows
the little boy standing near a tall
white dog, the dog showing at least
a head taller than the boy.
These pictures, originally taken at
the Salade home are excellent shots,
and will be highly prized as keep
sakes in the years to come.
They appear in the Mid-Week Pic
