AN INTELLIGENT DOG, V j
Rome of the Very Itnmarkfthic Peat Per
formed by a Clever Hotter.
In the southern part of Sumner
County, Ksn., close to the line of
Indian Territory, lives an old pioneer
by the name of I. I BurAict, who is
known throughout all that section of
country as "I. L," the rest of the name
being considered superfluous or too
formal to. accord with the character of
the individual whom it adorns. I. L.
is truly a character, kind-hearted and
hospitable, but rough and uncouth,
and given to blowing his own trumpet.
But with all his notoriety he is not
nearly so much of a character as his
old setter, Frank. .
Frank was a large, powerfully-huilt
dog, with no extra lumber, but with
bone and muscle enough to defend him
self against all onslaughts from his
canine acquaintances, and with a suffi
cient quantity of that useful article
commonly called "sand" to carry his
idoas of right and justice to a success
ful issue. The first dash of five miles
would not be characterized by the
high-headed raoe-horse speed of a
Roderigo, Bob GateB, or Oath's Mark,
but for a month's hunt in the heavy
covering of the Territory prairies he
would hold his own against the best
in the land. He did not hunt on the
quartering plan, but after surveying
the country would select the most
likely bird cover, and without any ex
tra ceremonies or graceful wavings of
the flag would "go for them" f a common-sense,
When hunting for quails, chickens,
turkeys or deer he would let all other
game alone for the kind wanted, and
he was equally good on alL
On one occasion, after slow-trailing
a buck with Frank for several hours,
L L. came upon the deer, which was
remarkable for its Bize, in a deep
ravine, where it was browsing. Tak
ing deliberate aim I. L. fired, and the
stately old fellow dropped ntly
dead, shot through the n I Ing
down the steep side of th . L.
proceeded to cut the tl- his
prize, when at the first( s. ol the
knife the buck sprang 'to his feet,
throwing the hunter to one side luck
ily near to where the discharged gun
was lying and as soon as It partially
recovered from its dazet condition
caused by the bullet which had
"creased" its neck, showed fight L L.
had just time to work the lever of his
Winchester when ttfe maddened beast
was upon him. He fired, but at such
close quarters that the bullet only suc
ceeded in shearing a bunch of hair
from the back of the animal, and the
next moment he expected to feel the
horns and hoofs piercing and tramp
ling him to death. But assistance was
at hand, and beforeyou could say "Jack
Robinson" Frank had the buck by the
ham. I. h. retreated up the side of
the bank and attempted to throw in
another cartridge, only to find the shell
fast. Frank and the deer in the mean
time were having a regular rough-and-
tumble fight. He had to let go of his
hold on the deer's ham to catch him by
the throat, to which proceeding the
buck entered his protest by a vigorous
use of both hoofs and horns, for in a
short time he was covered with dust
and blood from his own and the deer's
wounds. I. L., upon seeing the danger
of his boon companion, became frantic
in his efforts to eject the old shell, and.
of course, made less headway than if
he had kept his head. At last rrnnk
secured a hold upon the throat of his
antagonist, and, although severely
fanned about, he held his hold until
the refractory shell was thrown out
replaced by another, when the combat
was brought to a termination by a shot
through the heart of the noble beast
who had contendod so bravely for ex
istence and revenge upon his assail
ants. When the deer dropped the old
dog at once came to his master for the
praise he had so nobly earned, and for
the dressing of his wounds, some of
which were very deep and no doubt
painful. American Meld. ,
A LUCKY CONSTABLE.
View of a Man Wlio Can Sea Good Eveu In
While waiting at Decatur for the
train to Huntsville a constable came
in from the country with a neerro. It
was late at night and they had a long
walk. The officer wanted something
to eat before walking his prisoner
over to the walkup, and he handcuffod
the man to the batrtraire truck. He
then went over to the hotel, seeming
to feel that all was safe and secure.
The netrro was asked what he had
been arrested for, and he explained
that he had driven home and killed
the wromr hoar, it was a mistake
which any colored man was liable to
rnttKeiu a country wtiere the nogs look
so much alike, and he asserted that his
conscience was resting perfectly quiet
under the legal accusation. He was
homesick, however, and sighed for the
bosom f his family.
"Then , why don't you go homeP"
asked the Colonel.
"Can't git away from dis yare
truck," was the reply.
Can't you carry the truck on your

leaned forward, "doan' tlk to me

thought of that trick! Wid your kind
permishun I will now take a walk."
He shouldered the truck and disap
peared in the darkness, and half an
hour later; when the constable came
around and discovered , what had
occurred all he could say was:
"Dog-gone it, but I'm in luck! If I'd
fastened him to that freight car he'd
hav gone off with it just the same, and
the railroad would hev come on to me
for $5.000!" Dfttroit. Free Press.
1 Project on Foot to Add It to the Coma
try by Purchase
Many people in the southern part of
the State of California are interested
In a project to add to this Republic by
friendly purchase from Mexico the
territory of Lower California. Mr.
Vandever, one of the Representatives
af California in Congress, has sug-
?sted a plan for such an annexation.
He is of the opinion that, for the sum
af, say twenty million dollars, Mexico
would be quite willing to part with
Lower California, as it puts the 'region
to very little use, and has already
granted a large portion ot it to an
American commercial and colonizing
Lower California .has not, indeed.
received any development worth men
tion under the rule of either the Span
lards or the Mexicans. It has always
been regarded by them as almost val
ueless. A great part of this peninsula,
which extends for more than seven
hundred miles along the western coast
of Mexico, is mountainous, and other
parts are arid and sterile. There is,
however, on the other hand, much
land that might be rendered product
ive under enterprising development,
and unquestionably a certain wealth in
minerals exists. The climate of the
greater part of Lower California is
said to be quite as delightful and sa
lubrious a9 that of Southern Cali
fornia, and the occupation of so much
of the land in the latter section by set
tlement has attracted attention to the
great peninsula to the southward.
But Americans do not like to settle
in a foreign land. They are excellent
colonists, but only under their own
flag. It is not at all likely that citi
zens of the United States would settle
in any large numbers in Lower Cali
fornia unless that territory were made
a part of this Republic. Our people
have no disposition to possess them
selves of this region, or of any other,
for that matter, except with the
friendly consent of the power to which
it is now subject Having this fact in
view, it is stated that the representa
tive from California named above,
Mr. Vandever, will, at the next ses
sion of Congress, present a resolution
looking to purchase.
It appears strange, beyond a doubt,
that so vast a country as Lower Cali
fornia should have remained for cent
uries undeveloped andalmostunsettled,
if it is indeed a region capabhaof profit
tble development; but it is to be re
membered that nearly all the territory
we have acquired from Mexico, in
cluding California itself, was pVaoti
cally an unde veloped wilderness until it
came under the influence of American
enterprise. It is not at all probable
that Lower California would ever be a
second California or Texas. It does
uot appear to possess more than - a
fraction of the natural resources of
either of those great States. It
might, possibly, make a promising
new Territory if it could be acquired
under advantageous circumstances;
but the project will be far more inter
esting to the people of California than
to those of any other part of the coun
try. Youth's Companion.

Not Found In Knoyoiopmii".
The information that Mr. George (no
relation to Henry), the gentlemanly
and affable King of Greece, contem
plates retiring from the reigning in
dustry, makes it desirable to cease from
the maddening whirl of every-day life,
and look up his record.
George comes of a family wnicti nas
had considerable experience in the
monarch line. The old gentleman,
George's father, Christian IX., is King
of Denmark. His big sister, Alexandra,
married the Prince of Wales, and has
been in training for the position of
Oueen of Kneland for a good many
years; and another sister, Miss Dagmar,
is now officiating as Czarina of Russia.

There Is a exeat deal of history at
tached to Greece in one way and anoth
er. Some of this history is quite old
and shelf-worn. After the Western

a thousand years in semi-comatose state.
In 1493. however, the lurks secured
the title to all the corner lots and some
other real estate in Constantinople and
several t adjoining counties, inducting .
what is now Greece, and ruled the
country with their own peculiar brand
of tyranny for 360 years.

a tidal wave. It came at length. 1 ne
leaders of the opposition were Marco
Bozzaris, Esq., Mr. Michigan Ypsilantl
and other influential gentlemen; but
their efforts at reform were discouraged
by a reprehensible habit the Turks had
of massacreing patriots. Finally sev
eral European nations took a hand in
the game, and assisted the Greek's in
throwing off the Turkish yoke.
The selection of a monarch was the
next thing to order. Princo Leopold,
of Belgium, was nominated, and his
pull was sufficient to secure his elec
tion. He disliked the situation, how
ever, and threw it up. The Greeks
then tried an interregnum, but this did
not suit Mr. Otho, of Bavaira, was
then imported to officiate as monarch.
He was seventeen years old when he
began to reign, and held the situation
thirty years. A revolution getting ripe
about that time, he abdicated. . -
The Greeks then offered the throne
to Prince Alfred, an Englishman,
promising to re-upholster it and white
wash the palace; but Alfred was in the
hands of his friends, who refused to
let him go so far from homo. Anothor
attempt to get some one to undertake
the job resulted 1b the selection of Mr.
George, the subject of this sketch.
This was in 1863. Having been en
gaged in the arduous and absorbing
labor of ruling for twenty-five years,
George now wishes to retire to secure
a much needed rest. He has con
tracted the abdication disease, which
sooner or later attacks all Grecian
kings, and it will soon carry him off.-
