Dog Lost CHAPTER V. Signs Of A Storm CHAPTER VI.

"I don't know," said Oliver; "it looks like a dog's track; but I shouldn't think there would be a dog out here in the woods.

"I don't know," said Oliver; "it looks like a dog's track; but I shouldn't think there would be a dog out here in the woods.

It may be a dog which has lost his master.

" Jonas was right, for, when the boys arrived at the wood piles, they found there, waiting for them, a large black dog.

"Whose dog is that?" said Josey.

The dog remained motionless in his position, until, just as the boys had finished their calls, and as the foremost sled was drawn pretty near him, he suddenly wheeled around with a leap, and bounded away through the snow, for half the length of the first wood pile, and then stopped, and again looked round.

Jonas took a piece, and walked slowly towards the dog.

The dog was slowly and timidly approaching the bread which Jonas held out towards him.

The dog came timidly up to Jonas, and took the bread and butter from Josey's hand, and devoured it eagerly.

" So Josey brought the rest of his luncheon, and the dog ate it all.

Jonas said that he was undoubtedly a dog that had lost his master, and had been wandering about to find him, until he became very hungry.

So the boys left the dog gnawing his bone, and went up after another load; but before they had half loaded their sleds, Oliver saw Franco coming, bounding up the road, towards them.

The farmer said that he was some dog that had strayed away from his master; and he told Jonas to go out after supper and drive him away.

Josey begged his uncle to keep him, but his aunt said she would not have a dog about the house.

She said it would cost as much to keep him as to keep a sheep, and that, instead of bringing them a good fleece, a dog was good for nothing, but to track your floors in wet weather, and keep you awake all night with his howling.

So the farmer told Jonas to go out after supper, and drive the dog away.

Just before he turned to go into the house, he looked back, to see what had become of the dog.

Franco remained about the barn until breakfast-time, and then Jonas, at the table, told the farmer that he tried to drive the dog away the night before, but that in the morning he found him in the barn.

She, however, picked up the stick, and brandished it again towards Franco, and, stamping with her foot at him, she said, "Away with you, dog; get home!"

What the result of this contest would have been, it is very difficult to say, had it not been that it was soon decided by the occurrence of a singular incident; for, as the farmer's wife nodded her head, and stamped at the dog, the jar or the motion seemed to give the wind a momentary advantage over her bonnet, which, in her haste, she had not tied on very securely.

She herself smiled as she returned to her work, saying, "The dog has something in him, I acknowledge; go and see if you can't find him a bone, Jonas."

"Yes, Jonas," said the farmer, "you may have him for your dog till the owner comes and claims him.

And this is the way that Jonas first got his dog Franco.

He told Oliver that morning, as he was patting his head under the old General's crib, that the dog had taught them one good lesson.

DOG LOST About the middle of the winter, the farmer went to market with his produce.

The next advertisement was about some machinery, which a man had invented; and the next was headed, in large letters, Dog Lost.

So he got a chair, and stood up in it, and read as follows: "'DOG LOST.

"'Strayed or stolen from the subscriber, a valuable dog, of large size and black color.'

"'Any person who will return said dog to the subscriber, at his residence at Walton Plain, shall be suitably rewarded.

" He had hoped that Walton Plain would have proved to be off of his road, so that he could have had a good reason for not doing any thing about restoring the dog, until after he had gone home, and reported the facts to the farmer.

But now, as he found that it was on his way, and as he would very probably go directly by Mr. Edwards's door, he concluded that he ought, at any rate, to call and let him look at Franco, and see whether it was his dog or not.

I came to see him about his dog.

He saw there a large dog, very much like Franco in form and size, lying upon the carpet.

"I came to see you, sir, about your dog," said Jonas.

"Well, my boy," replied the man, "and what about my dog?"

and, as he said this, he looked down at the dog, which was lying upon the floor.

"Yes, sir; a dog like that one came to me in the woods one day this winter.

" "O," said Mr. Edwards, "you mean the dog that I lost.

When did you find him?" Jonas then told the whole story of the dog's coming to them, and of their attempt to drive him away; and also of his seeing the advertisement in the tavern.

At last he said, "I think it very probable that it is my dog.

It is probable yours is the same dog; but I don't know that there is any particular proof of it.

The dog was standing up in the sleigh, and looking wildly around.

The dog leaped down from the sled, and came bounding up the road.

He looked at the strange dog lying so comfortably in his old place upon the warm carpet, and then came and gazed up eagerly into his old master's face a moment.

" Jonas opened the door, and the dog ran out into the entry, and then made the same signs to have the outer door opened.

" "The dog seems to have become attached to you, Jonas," said Mr. Edwards, "and I presume that you have become somewhat attached to him.

"I hardly know what to say about this dog," he continued, at length.

I valued the dog very much, and would have given a large sum to have recovered him, when he was first lost.

" "And don't you think that he would be willing to have you pay a part of it for the dog?" "I don't know, sir," said Jonas.

"I know he likes the dog very much, but I have no authority to buy him with his money.

After a few minutes' pause, Mr. Edwards resumed the conversation, as follows: "Well, Jonas," said he, "I have been thinking of this a little, and have concluded to let you keep the dog for me a little while,that is, if he is willing to go with you.

Mr. Edwards took his hat, and followed him to the door, to see whether the dog would go willingly.

The dog ran down towards him a little way, and then stopped, looked back, and, after a moment's pause, he returned a few steps towards his former master.

" "You're a good dog, Franco," he continued, patting his head, "to come with me,very good dog, Franco, to choose the coarse hay for a bed under the old General's crib, rather than that good warm carpet, for the sake of coming with me.

" "You're a good dog, Franco," he continued, patting his head, "to come with me,very good dog, Franco, to choose the coarse hay for a bed under the old General's crib, rather than that good warm carpet, for the sake of coming with me.

] Jonas patted Franco's head and praised him, while the dog wagged his tail, whisked about, and shook the snow off from his back and sides.

"What dog is that?" said the woman.

" "No, that isn't the way," said the woman; "the dog don't know any thing about it.

A prize-fight had taken place in the neighbourhood, and one of the numerous visitors of that truly noble exhibition, who, in order to do honour to the day, had deprived Smithfield market of the light of his countenance, was returning across the park from the scene of combat, accompanied by his bull-dog.

The dog, who doubtless knew that his master was a trespasser, and considered it the better policy to assume at once the offensive, flew at the party whom he saw approaching.
