The Collie Rushed at a Bevy of Old
OI-D MAN NBOLET vras wntrh- |
Irajc the clever work of Colonel
i'rouse's young collie Id round
ing up and driving a neighbor's chick>dh
out of the t'rouae garden.
The collie rushed In lielter-akeltar j
fashion at a bevy of old hens which i
were scratching up a bed of newplunted
seeds. Hurrying and frighten i
log them, he rounded them into a ,
squawking and (lapping bunch and (
then drove them clean over the, fence | (
In a dramatic and noisy fashion.
Then he wheeled toward a flustered j J
mother hen with nix fluffy yellow buby
rhicka. No longer did he daah at the
intruders. Instead, he proceeded* In
leisure);- carefulness, slowly urging the
baby tx-ood toward -a gap in the fence
and giving their clucking and excited ,
mother plenty of tiiue to adapt her ,
pace to theirs.
Old Man Negley looked on with gp- 1
provnl. Then he turned on ColofleJ i
rrouse who was superintending the
work of eviction.
"That pup Is a natural-horn herder."
remarked Negley. "Moat young dogs
would have rushed In utuoug the flock
and perhaps trampled one of those
chicks. Your collie handled the whole
flock as cleverly as a veteran sheepdog
handles a herd of sheep. 1
"Kver see some splay-footed little
collie drive sheep In quantities? It's
a sight worth remembering. Out beyond
Red Bluff. Cal., I used to watch
a seven-month black collie puppy man- 1
age a bunch of 2.100 slieep. They were
stringy we'.here and ha could rnce them
without harming them at all when they
strayed out of bounds. (
"But when he came to drive a handful
of ewes with their lambs, he was
as gentle as a mother with a sick *
child?Juat the way your pup was with c
those baby chickens.
"It 1? the same with all natural
sheepdogs- It Is an education to watch
them at work. There Isn't one of them 1
that doesn't know his life belongs to
the flock and that he must tlirow away *
his life, if necessary, to save the dock d
from danger. Many and many a dog *
has done Just that. too.
"Did it ever strike you as queer 15
that a dog Is the only animal that will **
work for mankind of bis own accord; r
and even destroy other animals for 11
man's sake? Funny. Isn't It?- Your ^
cattle won't herd other cattle. Your
horse won't round up snd drive other w
horses unless there is a man on his ei
back to make him do It. ?
"No animal but tlia deg will work "
for man and hunt for man and voluntarliy
risk bis life for maa^aad for
man's possessions. There's a might* *
bond between man and dog that Isn't
found anywhere else In the animal ?
"Not only thoroughbred dogs, either;
but nc- called mongrels snd curs as
well. H?ejr'll die for their master and

hnn to let their valuable dogs be
uutilutcd. But a lot of poor people
-uuliln't ufford to par the tax. At the
lame time they didn't want to lose
hear pet dogs.
"So three poor men evaded the tax
<y cutting off their dugs' tails.

ell at a distance a rich man's purebred
dog from u poor inuu'a mongrel

Log had no tall. These poor men's
logs were referred to as 'curtailed*
logs. Then, pretty soon, the word,
curtail* was shortened to *cur.* And
tiongrel dogs were spoken of as *cur*
logs. The name has stuck ever since,
hough the tax was taken off long ago.
Jot one pers-m In a hundred under- j
tfinds how such dogs happen to be
"It was a cruel thing to cut off the
logs' tails. And It was an Injurious

lotlced. Just now, how your dog's tall

harply as he run.
"A dog's tail serves as s sort of

tion. Did you ever think that the
impiest inventions were the most
difficult lo invent? The radio was
almost perfected in a season. The
telegraph, reaper, and phonopraph |
were the work of days, while the I
simple mechanism of the modern'
firearm was the incessant labor of .
four centuries of toil. The gyro
compass, that automatically puides I
the fleets of ocean liners from port i
to port, was the fruit of a few short I
days. The pyro compass is a thousand
times more complicated than the
Colt's revolver?the study of one |
hundred years. Much has been I
discussed in regard to the most useful
invention. It is the opinion that
the handiest in the history of in-i
j ventiona is the open front or coat
style shirt. Think of the countless I
tons of energy that has been wasted I
pulling the old fashioned linseywoolsey
shirt on and off over the I
head for each individual three score j

More energy wasted than Niagra

have fought a thousand
Waterloos, or possibly a dozen domestic
