We have been accustomed lately to
think of dogs, as also most other
things, In terms of war; but our debt
to the dog dates back to very many
centuries before the black year of
1914. Dogs are our oldest friends of
the animal world, and It Is believed
that, since the time man began to do-
mesticate them, they have made more '
rapid strides in intelligence than we
The day may datfti when we seek to
preserve all living things through al-
truism, but that day is long distant
A writer in London Answers observes
dogs have survived to the tune of over
175 different species, because they are
useful. As shepherds, Scotch collies

Other varieties are employed as pro-
tectors and comrades; while the er-

Bernard that died a few years ago
won a medal for saving twenty-two

At present in Annonay, Franc^ jm
earnest effort is being made 'to Intro-

Rhone, just south of Lyons. It was
there, about 75 years ago, that a chem-
ist devised a tanning process in which
the hair was removed from the pelt
of a rabbit without damage to the
skin. Previously no one had been able
to remove the hair without injuring
The chemist .had bis process tried
out for a short time, but it did not
prove to be a commercial success and
