Fine Horse's Death Calls Forth Tributes at Britt BRITT--A dvama of the barnyard and the consequent gloom resulting from the death .of an exceptional horse on the -farm -of Mr. and Mrs. Emery Long was related in the Britt News-Tribune, published by R.

He was easily trained to do such tricks as to stand up on his hind legs and shake hands with his master and those on the farm (hat he knew well and respected. Suffered From Loneliness. "Billie had had two teammates during his lifetime. One died some years ago. Then a mare some ten years younger was teams with Billie. The two became inseparable. On Sundays ,md holidays when they were al- iowed to run the pasture, they vould graze together, always near to one another, "After Billie's death, the mare was noticed to be- suffering of .oneliness and a broken heart at the loss o f . her Billie. -She, defined, rapidly and died Jan. 9, less than two months following, the death of Billie. "An old duck that had been in he farm lot for 11 years, likewise appeared depressed after Billie's death. She was often seen close .o .the mare after Billie had bade :hem goodbye, as if to gain some measure of consolation and sympathy to'heal the wounds of sor- ow. When the mare died Jan. 9 the old duck bcame melancholy mil uri Jan. 18, was found dead in the barn." Another Lauds Horse. In a later issue of thfi Tribune, Mrs. W. B. Richardson ot Stilson wrote the following article: "It makes our hearts ache whenever we hear of our old friends passing on. Now comes word that dear old friend Billie Long has gone where all good creatures go. When Eva Richardson was a little girl she used to visit real often down on 'the Long's farm. Her and Emry's sister, Lula, used to spend many happy hours playing and · all those clear old pets were bur playfellows, Billie and Queen, Nancy and Fanny and dear Rover. "Now I know Billie liked'me for whenever I'd go down to Long's place and went out to visit Billie and the other pets Billie always Idssed me. First time I saw him he was eating his oats, he reached over the manger and Idssed me without one slobber. Tells of Incident. "When one of my Stilson girlhood friends was a little girl she had a pet cat she used to kiss. A lady friend was visiting at their home and saw this little girl kiss her cat. She talked awful because they let her kiss her pet. So my girl friend told this lady, 'I'd. rather'kiss my cat than I .would some people.' The lady was offended. People have more catching disease any day than some of the pet animals have, even if they don't think so. "Emery put the remains bt Billie beside dear old Rover am! sent word to Harvey to make make him a tomb stone with his name on it like lie did for Rover." Mrs. Johnson Funeral to.
