I THE D00 UNDER THE WAGON.
An Old Favorite.
"Come, wife." said good old farmer Gror.
"Put on your things, tls market day;
And well be off to the nearest town.
There and back ere the sun goes down.
Spot? No we ll leave- old Spot behind."
But Spot he barked and Spot he whined,
And soon made up his doggish mind
To follow under tho wagon.
Away they went at a good round pace,
And Joy came Into the farmer's face.
"Poor Spot," said he, "did wnnt to come,
But I'm awful glod he's left at home
He'll guard tho barn, and guard the colt.
And keep the cattle out of the,lotr
t'l'm not so sure of that." thought Spot.

A robber springs from behind n tree
"Your money or else your me, says
The moon was up. but he didn't sec
The dog under tho wagon.
Spot ne'er barked and Snot ne'er whined
nut qutrkly caught the thlf behind;
Ho dragged him down in the mire
And tore his coat ami tore his shirt,
Then held him fast on the mirv ground;
The robber utte-ed not a sound,
While ' hands and feet the farmer
And tumbled him Into the wagon.
So Spot he saved tho farmer's life.
The farmer's money, tho farmer's wire,
And now a hero grand and gay,
A silver collar be wrars today:

And everywhere his master goes
He follows on his horny toes,
The dog under the wagon.
