him w4th a dog to which be had taken
a great fancy. The train began to

dog ticket, so when the cry "All tick
ets ready!" was heard a few statiou^
farther on the professor put the dog
into a small hamper labeled. "Pro-
fessor Dash, Ventriloquist." When the
collector opened the door and the do«
began barking he looked at the ham

to the owner. "All right, professor,"
he said; "I ain't takiug any jokes just
now. I've been had like that before!"
