Eager owners with their pets and working animals Are there waiting anxiously for the Blessing and around them crowd hundreds of people who have come to witness the ceremony. And the horses and mules stand expectantly and the dogs and cats and Birds wait silently while the Good father descends the Steps of the Church to utter the words which include All the creatures of gods creation in the divine compassion. Quot Christ once said to those around not a Sparrow on the ground Falls but that our father sees and knows it too. So wherever you May find helpless creatures just be kind for the same god watches Over them and the old levee fire perhaps you do not remember it but some of us do. Many of us. Indeed recollect that night. You May look it up in the old files of the Telegraph Herald and find the following Story of bravery on the part of a female Irish setter who perched while seeking her master in the flames. Well let the newspaper Tell the Story. wrote the reporter Quot has the Devotion of a dog to its master been better exemplified than in the death of a Fine Irish setter in the levee fire thursday night. Fearful that her master Leonard Miller Engineer of the Iroquois Button company was still in the burning building the dog made three different attempts to find him in the flames and finally perished in agony. Twice the night watchman rescued her and As often she got away from in and ran Back into the building. The third time he could not get her because of the Progress of the fire. Miller himself was not around the factory after supper but the dog. Which appeared at the Plant about 9 of clock seemed to fancy he was. The watchman let her run around the building to satisfy her and she Sank to sleep quietly enough Down stairs.

Horton dentist i years in Dubuque seventh and main Streeta i when the fire broke out however she became frantic and rushed to the third floor looking for Miller. I the watchman missed her and ran i up stairs after her. He carried her Down despite her struggles. At the door he let her Down close to it. The dog turned like a Flash and dashed Back into the building. By this time the flames were at hand. A second time he caught her and brought her Down and this time closed the door on her. A Little later he missed her saw the door open and guessed the truth. He rushed in but was too late. From the midst of the flames upstairs came a whine followed by a howl of pain. The Noble animal was shut off from egress. The dog which died so pitiable was a thoroughbred Irish setter Well marked and 14 years old. She had been raised from Puppy Hood by Many other stories could doubtless be told of Dubuque dogs who have distinguished themselves by acts of courage. And there Are the countless stories in which they have exhibited an understanding which saved a serious situation. The other Day we were told the Story of a dog which had found his mistress very ill in one of the rooms of the House and had insisted upon informing the rest of the family. He loudly barked his anxiety but no one would listen. In fact they became annoyed by his persistency and ordered him out of the room. He obeyed very much crestfallen but when he found his mistress lying unconscious As he had left her upon the floor where she had fallen he just had to go Back and do his Best to Tell the family again. Once More he was scolded and went out. But by this time someone had become curious and followed him. They found him sitting forlornly at his mistresses Side whining his distress. And it might have been much More serious than even he could imagine if he had not succeeded in telling them that something was wrong who Are the dog prisoners that is what everyone is talking about that is everyone who likes dogs. That does not mean dog owners necessarily. For dog owners include All sorts of persons not Only dog lovers but dog haters even perhaps dog prisoners. That is the tragic part of the dog business you will find it out if you have much to Dew 1th a humane society. Dodge often find among dog owners their worst enemies. This is so True that in England a Law has recently been passed Quot under which a person guilty of Gross cruelty to a dog May be deprived of the right to keep some persons should never own a dog. This English Law recognizes that fact. But there is another fact that enters into the situation of the dog owner and the dog. The dog owner May like his own dog Well enough not to treat it brutally at least but he May dislike other dogs. We have had some disagreeable cases like this in Dubuque. Dog owners who do not want other dogs on their premises or in their proximity resort too often to the most cruel measures to Quot get ride of them. Therefore of you Are interested As we Hope you Are in discovering the identity of the dog prisoners who Are now working in West Dubuque and in the Vicinity of Ambrose Street and who May soon appear again in other parts of town notably lower Bluff and Southern Avenue where they have worked in the past do not think you May necessarily find them to be persons who do not own dogs of their own. This does not mean that he she or All of them do own dogs. It Means that you May look for them everywhere. The Breeding season right now it is the Breeding season. If there Are any disturbances in your part of town because of this.

Murphy news editor associated press photo service. New York a5 a who is the most photographed person in the world everyone has had his picture taken once or twice but what Man or woman has faced the camera More times than anyone else the Correct answer is babe Ruth. Colonel and mrs. Lindbergh would be first of they did not shun the Public Eye. Calvin Coolidge had front rank until his death a year ago. Roosevelt gaining. There Are Many runners up but none except the president really rivals Ruth. Roosevelt is gaining ground rapidly and indications Are that he will pass the babe in a year or so. The Prince of Wales is photographed whenever he makes a Public appearance. Jimmie Walker was Quot shot Quot almost Dally until he resigned As mayor of new York and Douglas Fairbanks Jack Dempsey mrs. Roosevelt Mary Pickford Al Smith Hitler Mussolini and Herbert Hoover were among those who had to be considered in making this selection. Babe a in detail. Although Ruth broke into the major leagues in 1914, it Wasny to until about 1920 that the news photographers began to pay him particular attention and that attention has continued and increased to this Day. The actual playing season of baseball is Short but in recent years the picture taking of babe has continued throughout the year. To illustrate this Point the files of the associated press contain among numerous others these off be glad to advise the dog owner who is often ignorant or negligent As to the Best method of taking care of his Mother dog. It would seem As a though with a society who is willing to be the go Between in the matter i of Quot dog nuisance a there should be j no excuse for the existence of such i despicable brutality As dog Poison i Long. We Call your attention to the standing offer of $100 Reward to any person who will give evidence that will bring about the conviction of a person charged with the poisoning of dogs.

At the shelter the Little White Spizie Pup the Collie youngster the smiling Shepherd the Fox terrier and the neat Black and White nameless dog Are still there hoping to get owners.

The gym workout and some of the others Are annual Winter features. And baseball Well to give just a Little idea during regular season games in new York the camera will be clicked on the Home run King 20 to 30 times during each game. During a world series of five games he has his picture taken at least 350 times and Ruth has played in to world series. It would be difficult to compute the number of feet of film the newsreels have made of Ruth since 1914. The same is True of the Amateur still photographers whose output of Quot Ruth Quot pictures is too prolific to be ignored. Ruth has head Start. While Ruth a pictures have been accumulating for 20 years it is interesting to note his closest rival the president started to have his picture taken As a big leaguer Only a year and a half ago. The explanation of this sudden Rise is the personality of the president plus the fact that news photographers become the constant companions of a Man the moment he is nominated for the presidency. He does no to go anywhere without them camera Are vigilant. Roosevelt and Hoover were each accompanied by seven photographers on the Long Campaign tips and that number was augmented at every Stop. This vigilance on the part of the photographers continues until the president has retired to private life. Then and Only then does it taper off. While the babe May Wear the Quot most photographed Quot Crown Only a Little while longer he always will be a favorite of the news photographers he never says Quot not to their a just one the new Ford v-8 Quot i picked a Ford v-8 for the 1933 Stock car race at Elgin and i thought it was a great car when it brought me Home in front. It takes a lot of automobile to average 80.22 Miles an hour for 200 Miles Over in course like that Quot when i heard that the 1934 Ford v-8 was even better than the 1933 Job i was just a Little doubtful it just did no to seem possible but i thought id find out. Quot i could see it was better looking but i Wasny to much interested in that. The thing a racing Driver looks at is the engine. How does it sound How is it built How fast will it go How does it stack up on Gas and Oil Quot so i took it out on the Road and opened it up. It held the Road like a Veteran and the Way that speedometer touched the top numbers was something to talk about. If id had that car in the Elgin race id have averaged closer to 90 than 80 Quot you can put me Down As saying this new Ford v-8 is going to go places in 1934.
