[Sept. 15, 1894.]

As you sometimes admit anecdotes of animals into the Spectator,

perhaps you may consider the following fact worthy of record. In a hotel

where I am staying, being distressed by the cry of anguish of a dog

occasionally, I inquired the cause, and was told that whenever he

happens to be in the hall when luggage is brought down to go in the

omnibus, he utters these bitter cries, and has to be removed. His master

left him here many months ago, and the supposition is that the sight of

the luggage and omnibus recalls his loss; and is another instance of the

faithful affection of these half-human creatures.
