MAKES DOGS HER HEIRS.
New York, May 19. —“Screechings”
of the boy choir of the exclusive
Fifth Avenue Episcopal church of St.
Thomas, whose stately home of Fifty-
YMrtl street is considered one of the
be ls ! Gothic examples in the country,
can ed the. transfer of a society wo
ma-’.’s bequest from a home for incur
able children to a memorial'hospital
for the Society for the Prevention of
Cruelty to Animats.
This* became known when it was
learned that Mrs. Sidmon McHie,
wealthy broker’s wife, had visited the
police and complained of the choir’s
“screechings”. An investigation was
promised. Mrs. McNie’s home faces
St. TTiomas’ across the street.
Recently she surprised society with
the announcement that her entire for
tune was to be left for an animal mw*
momal hospital, ™*th the inscription
over the door: “The more I saw of
humans, the more I thought of dogs.”
She had previously announced that
her will bequeathed her estate to a
hospital for incurable children. She
did not then explain her reasons for
changing her mind and her will.
Nan’s Made-Up Story. ;
“If ydu’ll pay strict attention
To every single word,
I’ll read the nicest story
I’m sure you ever heard.”
And Nan made room for Pussy
Beside her on the seat,
I’m very sure she mewed her thanks
For having such a treat.
“Once on a time,” the story read—
Pussv did closer sit;
The hook was upside down, but then
Nan couldn’t read a bit.
“Th '‘re lived a ‘little Tabby—
That’s your surname, you see—
Who had the strangest manners,
As foreign as could be.
"She didn’t wash her face and hards
When she sat down to eat,
l-.it only when she’d eaten up
Her bits of juicy meat.
“Now, don’t you like that story?
Every word is true.
All ca+s have just such manners,
And, Pussy, you have too.”
