WOES OF A GOOD DOG IE FETCHED ASHORE FRANKIE LANNON BY THE EAR This is a. simple story of first ward foe, unutterable woe born, of grave lisundorstanding, and it. is vouched for y the New York Herald, First of all there figures a brindlo mil "pup—a fool dog who did tlio best e could. He will dio for it. to-day. Then, there is the fool dog's master. , r ho loved tho briudlo pup and ha.s i'opt for it. This fond man slopt last ight in tin; Church Street. Station.

La niton is vowing vengeance on ho fool dog and the fool dog's master— I'hen she isn't watching the bundle of wt'ul possibilities which calls her notliei-. It: starts hero. The terrible pup is wiled by Jacob Molstor, a chubby, owerful Gorman tobacconist. Amax.e- nont ran riot through the nooks and was nearer and in ...*.• \.ith a 01! joy he seized little.- r'— The be>y yelled. No wonder, log's teetli had torn his ear. It i real yell. It sent .-.ji-istt-r flying from his seat, and brought the crowd to the boat iu a jiffy. It was different now. He's killing the boy!" "He's killing little Lannon 1" "Call ii.i oil. Pop! . "Kill him!' "Get a boat!" Tlie crowd had been gay before. It was mad noAV. But the fool dog. having been sent out to bring in something out of the wet, was bringing it. Ho didn't know tlio boy; Avas lalf dead from fright and pain. He couldn't understand Avhy Meistor, Avhr-in lie liked, was yelling like a lunatic. Ho didn't know the crowd Avas waiting to kill him. He liked tlio noise and oxcitomont and he kept right ou '"fetching' Fraukie Lan- noii. Tlie lad was bleeding. He fought his way clear of the dog as they ueared tho float—it had all happened in a minute—but. as he pushed the be>ast off it fastened on his hand and swam ahead, dragging him along. A moment more aud Meister had torn tho dog from its prize. The brute had tasted blood and Avas groAviug savage. As Meistor put. tho muzzle on again a do/en men kicked it,' and there Avas a general charge upon man and dog. In the police station tho pup was chained near tho desk. Tlie e.haln Avas small. The crowd rushed Into the station, and the bull pup, cornered UOAV and seeing that oven Meister, Avhose dos ho was, had turned against him, broke tho chain at. a bound. The croAvd fell over itself in retreat. Meister led the dog back and fastened him with a small hawser. Then came an ambulance from Chambers Street Hospital for Fraukie and Franklo's mother, looking for Frankio, hydrohobia and hysteria. The surgeon dressed- the boy's wounds, called them painful but not dangerous, and said there was a cot In tho hospital about Frnnkio's size. Mrs. Laiinon refused It and tlio boy was sent home. Having assorted her rights, i'runkie's mamma demanded justice. She insisted that Meistor should slaughter the brindle pup he had rearedi and loved, aud she insisted, moreover, that lie stand not upon tho order of his slaughtering. Meistor was Avilling, He avoided the brindle dog's eye and awaited the sign from Roundsman "Mike" Smith. Roundsman Smith had not figured extensively up to I bait point. He began at a catchlng-up gait. ' "You can't kill him, man" ho said'. 'It's not the \a\v. He's boon a runiiin' about, on tho streets and harbors of this city contrary to tlio ordinances, Avlth- out a muzzle, or a number, or a license. Voii'ro arrested." "Arrested!" gasped Meistor.
