A Dog's Sense Of Humour

[March 9, 1895.]

Does the following dog-story show a sense of humour? A retriever was in

the habit of leaving his bed in the kitchen when he heard his master

descending the stairs in the morning. On one occasion a new kitchen-maid

turned him out of his bed at a much earlier hour than usual. He looked

angrily at her, but walked out quietly. Time passed, and he was nowhere

to be found. At last, in going to her bedroom, the kitchen-maid found

him coiled up in her own bed.
