I had hoped to see you a guest at my palace where rooms had been prepared and a loving cup at the officer's mess. I hope to see you soon in Berlin." To this, Count Zeppelin replied as follows: "I never said I was coming to Berlin. Somebody sent a fraudu- lent despatch to the balloon battal- lions demanding that preparations be made. I hope an enquiry will be made, to discover whence the message came. The "Tea- son for my non-appearance. in Berlin was fear .that the supply of benzine would not suffice to take me to Ber- lin and "back to Friederichshafen. I hope in six weeks to be able to re- port to you in Berlin with my repair- ed airship."

THE LOVABLE DOS Few people who have read Jack London's famous book, "The Call ci the have forgotten the lovable dog who is the hero >f the story and whose career the au- thor traces from the. day the animal was kidnapped from his masters home in the Santa Clara Valley until the time when he deserts mankind and joins the wolf packs of the frozen north. It will be remembered that London leaves at the head of the dog's ferocious ancestors; their chosen leader and as wild as the wild- est of the pack. It is a far cry from that glacier- strewn valley where London gives his reader his last glimpse of "Buck" to the menagerie of the Greater Norris Rowe Circus and yet, uncreditable as it may seem, there is caged in that menagerie a wolf dog that well might have been the hero of "The Call of the Wild." Indeed, if there ever was such a dog as if London based his story upon anything but- pure imagination, it would not be hazarding too much to assume that this wild thing of the menagerie is the shaggy, snarling embodiment of his theme. "Kon" the Norris Rowe animal has been so named for the reason that he was captured on the Upper Yukon River, comes out of Alaska. He was found in a wolf trap by placer miners. So large and beau- 'tiful was he and so like in shape and look of intelligence to the domestic dog. that the men placed him in a rudely constructed cage. I Robert Le 'Roy, whose properties I the men were working at the-time of I the capture; was amazed ai the size iand beauty of the brute. Knowing that his old time fricnd( Manager H. jS. Rowe, is at all times oti the look- jout for unusual animals, Le Roy had I the captive sent to the circus head- quarters at Santa Calif. "Kon" is now one of the most beautiful ex- hibits in the entire menagerie. Men jlong experienced in. handling wild animals arc convinced that he the unusual type of wolf they have ever seen. He is the fiercest, and strongest of the band of wolves that. Norris Rowe carry with them. Frank "Kon's" special keeper and a man noted f.-.r abil- ity v> tamo the wildest of animals, a. keen interest in his new charge. "Talking of the anim.il he said: "T have long been interested in London's novel. I am convinced th-'it a dog subjected to the im- posed in the "Call of the Wild" would retrograde to the absolute wild state. I am also convinced that such a dog could be retemcd. If "Kon' indeed, once domesticated, T shall bring him back to that state."
