A Faithful Iogr.
One evening' last weuk' Mr. R. S.
Murray, who- is : superintendent of
Messrs. Bowden & Larkins' farm on
Wrightsviilc Sound, was driving away
some cattle that had gotten into one of
the fields, when a cow" of the' drove
started in a direction he did not want
her to go. He shouted for some one
at the house to stop her, and his little
girl ran out for that purpose, when the
cow, which bad become quite furious,
started in pursuit of her. The girl
screamed and ran for the fence, bat the
animal was so near that she conld not
gam a place of safety, and she would
undoubtedly have been gored and tram
pled to death had not the dog, who had
heard the screams, ran np and caught
the coW by the nose just when the latter
was not more than three feet from the
girl, and held on with such tenacity
as to throw the animaU thus giving
the young miss time to escape.; It is
needless to say that that dog is an espe
cial pet and favorite with Mr. Murray
and his. family, and that they, resent
an injury to him as quickly as they
would to. one of themselves.-
