about 300 volumes. Topography comes
next, with about twenty fewer, and of
these books on London amount to a
quarter, books on English topography
to another quarter, the other half be

and miscellaneous literature take the
fourth place and are followed by fic

politics, mathematics and chemistry,

THE DOG'S EYE.
Watch Thnt, Not the Month,
Symptom of Hydrophobia.
As dogs do not perspire, the only re
lief they seem to get when overheated
is from Inhaling cool air through their
wide opeu mouths in short, puffy
breaths. Tho friction between tongue
and lips caused by their rupld, labori
ous breathing produces saliva, which la
sometimes lgnorantly diagnosed as
foam, one of the symptoms of hydro
phobia. Many Innocent victims havo
lost their lives on account of such stu
pidity. If your dog should feel 111, sick with
some ordinary ailment, he will wag
welcome to you with a sad, pitiful ex
pression, looking up iuimlrlugly as If
asking for help aud relief. If It has
come to the worst and he feels by In
stinct tho germs of the dreaded disease
In his frame, his action will be entirely
different. You will find him with low
bent head, withholding his usual glad
welcome, hardly noticing or glancing
If your eye moot his, tho restless,
nervoiiB, strange expression will star
tle you. The dog, feeling his doom, Is
conscious of approaching danger and
would like to prepare and warn you.
These unmistakable and easily recog
nized signs should bo watched closely
and always heeded. Comer the dog at
once and, with the help of a broom or
barn fork, keep him at a safe distance
until locked up. Country Calendar.
