The Frogtown Dss FlsnU 1 . v
A Comic alictclx. -
There is an excellent moral to the fol
lowing story' which is told with great
fkill. It show's how a whole Tillage is
sometimes torn to pieces by a fight be
tween two puppies.
The most remarkable dog fight on rec
ord come off at Frogtown, od the f rent,
ier of Maine, eome years ego. It en
grossed the entire community in one in
discriminate melee interminable law
suits or suits at law diEtracUon cf the
town, its down-fall and ruin.
A fansiful genius, named Joe Tucker
a man about town, a lounger, without
visible means of support a do-nothing
loafing, cigar-amcker, good natured' fel
low, owned a dog; a sleek, intelligible,
and rather pretty least, always at Joe's
heels.fand known as townees. One day
Joe and his. dog were passing Bunion'
crocerr iters, when a pie-bald," ugly.
looking dog, standing alongside a wood
wtron.bonnded en to .Jee 4?S !
knocked him hels over bead, arid so
frightened BcV Carter' wife,! who Wa
passing towarda her husband's black
trnith shop with dinner, that she 6tum
bled backward; and her old sun bonnet
flopped off", and scarred the Horses at
teched to the wagon. He : started, hit
Latherem'a barber pole, opsst a load of
wood, all of which falling down Gumbo's
refreshment cellar, struck one of Gum
bo's children on the tead, killed it for a
short time stone deed, and. so alarmed
a r i .
mrs. uutnbo, mat sne drorpea. a stew
pan cf boiling hot sters 'into' the lap
instead of the dish of the customer who
sat waiting for the savory concoction by
a table in the corner. Mrs. Gumbo
screamed, tht child screamed, and -the
customer yelled ! . - -::
! "Oh, oh ! ch-oh-oh, my poor child 1
cried Mrs. Gumbo.
-. d i i
' "Eh, e-he-e-e," screamed the ' poor
f,0h, murder-w !" "Murder, mur
der!" roared .'the poor customer.'
Th horse, Ihe.pirt. of theagca,and
some wood were in their mad career.'
The owner of the strange dog came out
of the store just in time to ie Joe Tuck
er seize a rock to demolish the sarage
dog ; and; tct waiting - to tee,) Joe let,
drire, gare him such a pop on the back,
that poor Joe fell forty rods up the street
and striking a long ladder upon which
Jim Ederby was perched, paint pot in
hand, some thirty fext from terra firm,
brought ladder,. Jim, and paint-pot
sprawling to the : earth, crippliag poor
Jim for life, and sprinkling blue paint
over the broadcloths, satinets, and cali
coes of Abraham Miller, a'formal and
eren tempered Quaker, ran out to lb
door just as the two dogs had gfine fairly
at it hip and thigh, nip and catch. A
glance at matters seemed to convince
Abraham of the true state of tht cast ;
and in an unusually elevated roice, Abra
ham called out to Joe Tucker, who had
Joseph Tucker, thy dog's afight-
Let 'em fight it out," yelled the pug
nacious owner of the strange "dog.. "Let
them fight it out; "I'll bet a log of
wood my dog can eat any dog in' town,
and l ean eat the owner."
Wehave said Abraham Miller was a
quiet man ; Quakers are proverbially
ao. But the gauntlet thrown down by
tbe stranger from the cou.ntry,stirred the
gall of Abarham, and he. rushed into the
store ;-frcro the back yard, haying slip
ped his collar, Abraham brought forth a
brindle cur, strong, low and powerful.
'Friend," said the excited Quaker,
"thy dcgihall be well beaten, I promise
thee!. Hyke, seize upon him!" ,
'-Ttirk, here, boy.' ' ' - ' '
And the jlogs went at it. . -Bob
Carter, uie smith, comirg up in
time to hear the- stratger's defiance to
the town,and bent ipn a fight with some
body for the insult and damage done to
his wife, clapped the collar of the stran
ger, and by a seriesofMen-pound-ten
upon the face, back and sides of his buU
ly antagonist, with his, natural sledge
hammers, Bob stirred up tbe strength
and ire of tbe bully stranger to the tob
of his compass',, .and ' they -made, t the

We had in the Metoka, when we
sailed from New Orleans for Messina,
upon a moderate; computation, I should
say, a cord and a quarter of rats ; snd the
increase during' the voyage was so- rapid
that by the time we got back to ; Gibral-
tar, 'tween decks, lower hold, forecastle,
cabin, and store-room, literally swarmed
with the obnoxious sodtnts obnoxious
to everybody fore and aft, except Cap
tain Mason. . He was on the best possi -
ble terms with the vermin. . A dozen of
thebigest blueskini in the ship hsd se
cured homesteads in the "old man's mat

actually rearing her family under his
pillow. Captain Mason said he rather!

I and be swore to exterminate the whole!

I half awake, the old man had managed
to smash into utter worthlessness his gold

it down from the hook to see what time
I it was. and when he veiled at him 'the
bloody lubber dropped it oa the floor,

Artenus 7crd Insures Eh Life.
I ' kum to the conclusion lately, that
life waz so onsartain, that the only way
for me tu stand a fair chance with other
folks, wuz to git my life insured, and so
I ka'ld on the Agent ov the ' Garden
Life Insurance Company 'rnd ansered
the following questions, which vwux put
to me over the top ov a pair ov gold (
specks, by a slick little fat old feller,
with a little round grey beard as enny
man ever owned :
1st. Are you male er f email? If so.
state how long you have been so. "
2d. Are you subject to fits, if so, do
you have more than one at a time! ..'j
3d. What is your precise fiteing
. 4th. Did you ever have enny ances
tors, and if eojbow much ?
5th- What is your opinion ov the con
stitutionality ov the 10 commandments?
. 6ih. Did you ever have enny nite
mares ? '
7th. Are you married and single, or
are you a bachelor ? - ' :
8th. Du yu believe in a future state ?
If yu du, state it.
9th. What is your private sentiments
about a rush of rats tu the head ; e&a it
be did successfully I . ,
10th Have you ever committed sui
cide, and if to; how did it seem to ef
feet yu ? . .
After answering the above questions
like a man, in the confirmatif,' the slick
little fat old fellow with geld specks on
CpfLI wuz insured for life, and probably
wothd remain so for a term or years
I thanked him and .sailed one ov my
most pensive smiles.
