They Are the do let. Hard-Working.
Tn Germany a dog may be ald to live
a "dog's life." And having made Ihls oh
servallon about dogs one Is tempted |<>
ask: "What ahouf the women of Ger
many?” For before he knows It the. trav
eler In Iho Fatherland has begun to asso
ciate the women and the dogs I'erhaps
this Is because he see* them ao often toll
Ing along together side by side In the
market roads or In Ihe streets of cltle*.
dragging heavy carts. And perhaps It Is
bemuse both aro so uncomplainingly
faithful and strong, and silent.
At rtr*t the American looks u|ion all Ihls
with Ihe disfavor of unfamlllftrlty, for In
come# froffi a country where the dogs, at
least, live lives of aristocratic leisure, but
after all. the women and Ihe dogs arc nol
so badly treated They are up early and
to bed late and for long hours they wear
tho harness of work and yet one Is ltn
preseed With Iho unvarying kindness
shown these fnlthful pervanta. Visit any
German market pla-e and one sees hun
dreds of dog carls drawn up to the pave
ment edge and Ihe dog whli his harness
loosened lying on a clean *oft mat which
has been spread Mown for him. If *
rains there I* often a bit of canvas or
an umbrella to stretch over* him At the
market In Hamburg once I saw a dog ly
ing under a little collapsible lent which
had been raised over him while It rain'd
And the dogs everywhere look sleek nd
well fed. and they seem to take n Inter
esl In drawing the load, often Irsiklng up
to tho woman opposite wllh almost human
companionship 'n a rainy dy In Vienna
I saw a (log holding the woman's skirls
out of the mud In his leelh while both
tolled tiefnre a huge load of cabbages.
The women 100, look well-kept. Their
clothing I* clean nr.d carefully metaled,
though often coarce. and v<n those loll
ing burden hearers are not without little
touches of feminine finery. Jnvarlihly
they look strong and well, the younger
one# rosy of ch( • k, smooth and sunny of
hair, stout of arm. n-l the older ones.
I hough oft< n bent, are still vigorous At
ruv-n one s-'s them sitting by their dogs,
eating (heir rve bn a I and sausage, and
occasionally offering a tld-t.lt to the gr. .it
faithful creature, who stands near wltn
eager eyes. And as they eat one hears
them chatter very much as I heir sister#
do everything the world over-* bit of
p easant gossip about dre.s and husbands
and docs Thu Ihe women arel ( he dogs
brlr.g most of the produce fr-An the gar
dens to the city markets, thus travel all
manner of peddlers, old cloths buyers
and so on.
In one respect, however, the dog* are
better off than the women When they
reach home they may rest; he women
never rest. One sees them tn the field at 5
O'clock In the morning and at 9 j'c'ock
In the evening, grubbing and hoeing, and
harvesting In lie elilrs they arc up ond
down, and everywhere with tuske'a strap
ped to their shoulder-. < arrytng laundry
work, vest tables, meat, fruit, babies. The
markets are run by women almost exclu
tlvaiy and It Is a common algnt lo see
women sawing or splitting wood In Ihe
guests as 1 saw them often, or mixing
mortar for new buildings, loading and un
loading hi I k iiml lumber, ml doing all
m.initer of other heavy work
