He came ashore with his blubber and harpoon, and when he came to examine the latter, he found that the name of the owner was cut deeply in the steel Josh. Fullalove, J. Fernandez.

"By heck, there's no room in the attic for trunks," he had insisted. "Hoop skirts everywhere! Boxes of 'em! Barrels of 'em! Hanging from the rafters like Japanese lanterns! Standing up in the corners like ghosts scaring a fellow to death! I can't keep servants at all because of Cousin Ann Peyton's buying that gross of hoop skirts. Little Josh will bear me out in this."

In a few minutes they came yelping back, pawing their noses and rubbing their heads against the ground. They had found the trail, but Josh had played the old slave trick of filling his tracks with cayenne pepper. The dogs were soothed, and taken deeper into the wood to find the trail. They soon took it up again, and dashed away with low bays.

Middleton, "but no more like me than Sunshine’s pet kitten is like our old watch dog, Tige. He was soft like in his ways and took to book larnin mightily, and I’mbut everybody knows what old Josh is. Hold on thar! Save the pieces!" said he to Frank, who, unable longer to restrain his mirth, had deluged his plate with coffee. "Pray excuse me," said Frank, mortified beyond measure at his mishap.

O Joshuay! O Joshuay! She cried an' cried as if her heart would break, but Josh went on milkin', an' never said a word.

But that night, when Josh come home, he hove 'em all out into the back yard, an' the biddies eat 'em up.

This arrangement made, Tier turned in at once, desiring the cook to call him half an hour before the proper period of his watch commenced.

"You surely would not come back here with Harry, did you once get him safe from off that rock!" exclaimed Rose. "Why, you know how it is with me, Miss Rose," answered Jack.

The next day Captain Josh and his charge reached the city, when they went at once to Peter McDuff's store. They were kept waiting for some time, as the owner was not in.
