A story of a lishy nature comes
from Oregon. It is about a man
and a dog. There is nothing
remarkable about the mau, ex-
cept his powers of narration,
but the dog possesses varied ac-
complishments. Among other
things, he dives into the river
and catches large salmon in his
mouth. Recently he was by the
side of his master, who was fish-
ing through * hole in the ice,
when he discovered a choice
salmon, and dived down ult« s n.
The current carried him beyond
