ENSIGN JACKMAN'S DOG.
All the dogs want their histories writ
ten — a t least their friends want them writ
leu. And next in order comes the En
sign's dog. But as for the beginning of
his history—no man knows it; and the
end has not come yet.
But about the Ensign first. lie carried
a regimental llag in the war of 1812, and
earned his title, and everybody knew him
by it—the old ensign.
lie was a farmer, and lived just on the
outskirts of the village, with his wife as
old as himself. His children were mid
dle-aged men and women, settled at the
west long ago. The aged couple lived by
themselves, in a state of exceeding com
fort : he called her • Mother,” and she
called him “Father”—a pleasing habit
which some old people fall into, and which
constantly reminds them both of the chil
dren every time they address each other,
and comprehends the whole family in
two words. He had his “stock” in the barn,
cattle, a horse and sheep, and the hen
poultry ; and in the house they had a cat,
Fernando. A dog was t. come into the
household and history, but as yet they
knew it not.
This is how they came by him.
One day there was an auction in the
village. Some family about moving away,
took this method of disposing of the mul
tifarious articles not good enough to be
carried away, and too good, as they
thought, to be destroyed—a genuine coun
To this auction went all the men in the
country round about, of course ; for if
there is one thing which more delights
the heart of man more than another, it is
to go to an auction; and the more worth
less the wares are, the more they enjoy it
and the higher they bid.
To it went a man with a dog—a homely
Scotch terrier. That is, it is supposed
that there must have been a man, though
nobody remembered to have seen him,
and he never was heard of afterwards.
But would a dog go alone ? a strange dog,
.1 mean that had never been seen in those
parts before. *
The Ensign was there ; he was famous
for attending auctions, and he always had
so many articles knocked off to him that he
had got into the way of going with his ox
team to carry his property home. His
garret was full of things, and his sheds
and yards were cluttered with old farming
implements. He was not a very tidy
man, but a good and kind one, which is
better, if we must choose.
On this occasion, he kept bidding, and
the last thing which was struck off to him
was a cradle, for which there was no long
er any use in his house, for his grandchil
dren had outgrown cradles. But the old
man said that it was the most beautiful
piece of furniture he ever saw in a home,
took it, hoisted it to the top of his load,
and was about starting off, when he was
attracted by u crowd gathered around
something which lay on the ground, and
looking over the shoulders of those near
est him, for he Was the tallest man in the
village, he saw a wretched dog, all muddy
and bloody and tangled, and with a leg
broken. It was the very Scotch terrier
which some of them had noticed wander
ing about alone, and he had been run over
and left in that pitiful and helpless condi
Nobody seemed to care for him. except
to stare, out of curiosity. It was not sym
pathy, and the dog knew it. He lay pant
ing and licking his wounds, but keeping
ing his eyes wide open, and looking with
a good deal of perception in them, at the
faces about him. One man proposed kill
ing him ; another suggested throwiug him
back somewhere and leaving him to die.
1 here was hardly a kind word for him,
except from a little shoemaker, who knelt
down on the ground beside him and tried
to wipe away the blood, and tenderly ex
amined tbe wound.
„ I*2? pressed in among them,
and hading the dog seemed to have no
owner, said he would take care of him,
took him up ill his arms as carefully as lie
would a baby, carried him to the earl,
laid an old frock in the cradle, and then
placed the dog in and drove home
••Mother” Jackman found no fault with
liiut for bringing borne so much rubbish.
She was like the wife of Gudbraud 1 slie
thought everything her husband did was
just light. Still less would she object to
the dog. She made him a bed with some
old rugs on the ••settle" in the chimney

fashioned liouso. where there was still left
a w ide fire place in the kitchen ; and
placed just where its occupants would

painted red. wi li a high straight hack,
and broad roomy seal where two or three
could sit. There the dog was placed,
t he cat. Fernando, always had one end ;
henceforth the dog was to have the other.
hi couple did not need it, for each
had a how bucked rocking chair.
The Ensign splintered the leg and ban
daged it, and left the rest, us lie said, “to
Nntur " And Nature, who is u wise phy
sician. in time healed the poor animal
though not so effectually but lie always
hud a kind of halt in his gait.
The next thing was to find out his name.
His own name was the best one for him, if
he could only find out what it was. So
the ensign tiled him with all lie could
think of. beginning with Hose. You must
have observed that whenever a mail has
occasion to call a strange dog. whose name
lie is in ignorance at, be invaiiably says
••Hose.” Why it should be- Hose" more
than ••Watch," or “Tige,” or any other
name by which dogs are known, is a mys
tery which you may explain if you can.
So tie began with Hose, us I said, and
kept on slowly and distinctly to the end
of his list. Hut it was not Bose. It was
not Spring, nor Spot, nor Sport, nor Lion,
nor Carlo, nor Pete, nor Pat, nor Trip, nor
Muje, nor Watch, nor Turk, nor Tartar,
nor Hover, nor Jim, nor Jip, uor Towser,
non Snap, uor Ciesar, nor Skyler, nor
Skip, nor Mac, nor Dick.
The ensign shouted them, llis wife re
peated them coaxingly; aud the creature
sat bolt upright and looked in their faces,
and it seemed as if lie could not wait for
the right one ; as if he must speak and
tell them what it was. Oh. If they would
hit upon it! If ever a dog wanted to
speak, he did. If ever a dog tried to, he
At lust the old man cried out in despair,
••Well, mother, we shall have to name him
for ourselves ; we’ll call him Jac&man.”
“That's it!” cried the dog, starting up
That is, he did not exactly say those
words, but he let them know. He sprung
into their faces, and lathered their hands
with his tongue, and hobbled about in a
state of distraction, quite crazy with de
light. There was no doubt about it He
They never saw a day when they were
sorry they bad taken in tbe outcast. lie
was no beauty. His color was not pleas
ing ; his ears were mutilated; bis tail
bad been nicked ; lie was stiff in bis gait.
Neither did lie possess any brilliant quali
ties. He was rather a sad and reflective
dog ; it seemed as if tbe memory of old
troubles oppressed him at times. Ho
made friends with no one outside of the
house. He remembered the bard-liearted
ness of tbe men of that village, who in tbe
day of bis distress punched him with their
umbiellits hiul poked liim with their feet,
and he would have nothing to do with
them. He stayed by the Jackmans.
The second winter after Jack went to
live with them, the Ensign took it into his
head to get his wood from a distant rough
track which he owned, more than a mile
from home. The sled-path was very un
even, over boggy places, between rocks,
winding in and out through the words. It
was not a safe undertaking for an old
man, and his wife protested ; but he was
strong and well; he knew every knoll
and turn and difficult spot; besides, bis
oxen were perfectly broken, and then, be
So daily they went off together, and in
a few hours returned in safety with a great
load of wood, until one afternoon as they
were jogging homeward, the sled cuutcr
ed on a stone, and the uppermost log on
tbe load rolled off on the Ensign's side,
taking liim unaware, knocked liim down
and Held liim there wedged iii between
the runner and a huge which al
most overhung the path.
As he fell he instinctively shouted
“ whoa” to the oxen, and they stopped at
once, then and there. If they had started
at all, the sideling load would have been
precipitated upon his head ; but trained
and most obedient of creatures, like all
good oxen, they minded whut was said to
them and baited, with the toppling logs
ready to roll off at the first movement.—
But, though they might stand there all the
afternoon, as probably they would, when
niglit drew near they would go home. —
Besides, there was uo help in them.
While this had been happening, Jack
had been off careering about the woods,
hunting bares and starting up partridges,
and having a most delightful time ; but
now when the Ensign whistled for him,
-he came bounding back to tbe sled,
what bad happened, and that be could not
get at bis master, and started for home
with the speed of a race horse. Mother
Jackman saw him coming down tbe road,
and be seemed to her to be almost flying.
His lameness did not hinder him then.—
ne cleared the ground like a deer running
for life. She knew that something was
the matter, and rushed to the door; but
instead of stopping there, he shot pa9t and
kept straight on, by several houses and
shops, to the shoemaker’s. Meanwhile
she caught up a shawl, and set out lor the
Jack had evidently gone through with
some process of reasoning, which brought
him to the conclusion that it was a case
in which a woman could not help, not
even his own mistress. And so he sped
by everybody else to tbe one man who
had befriended him. He burst into the
presence of tbe shoemaker, pulled at bis
shirt sleeves, and ran to the door, whi
ning. Tbe man put on bis coat and fol
lowed, At tbe grocery store next door lie
stopped long enough to tell of the dog’s
conduct, then borrowed a horse and sleigh
which stood waiting while the owner was
making purchases, and drove on after
Jack. Men came out along the road until
there was quite a party on the way, some
in sleighs and some on foot. When the
old lady was overtaken, she was picked
up and conveyed along.
Jack led the way. There stood the pa

By using the utmost precaution, the men
