Duke of Wellington Not Above Tak
ing Caro of Toad Which Was
Small Boy's Pet
Tho duko of Wellington, whllo
strolling about his cstato ono day,
camo upon a small boy, tho son of: a
gardener, down on Itis knees before
n hole, nnd with tears running down
his face. The boy explained that his
pet toad lived In the hole, and that ho
fed him every day, tho toad knowing
him nnd following him about tho gar
den. School was to open the next day ,
In n distnnt town, rind tho lad was
afraid his toad would starve to death.
"Not nt all, not at all," assured tho
grcnt leader. "I'll look after ,your
toad myself." Tho . boy got up nt
once, and tho two gravely shook hands.
Tho duke wns as good as his word,
and went several times n week to the
hole with a handful of crumbs, and
tho toad soon transferred his affection
to his grace. This so tickled tho sol
dier that ho wrote tho boy n letter
telling him of tho pot's actions, but
expressing tho belief that when tho
boy returned tho toad would go back
to his first njfetlon.
