Will give to her grief its way,

Her troubles revive each day.

She couldn't be wrapped in darkness

The Pit Dog of the Politicians
One of the most famous black-in-tan

the late John A. Smug, and a cherished
favorite of W. P. Small, died this morn

21 years. Pim the past year Dolly has
been deaf and blind, and was tenderly
cared for by, her master, who had a
large feather pillow prepared, on - which
she'lay on the feet of his bed. Yester
day the poor brute was taken with
spasms, in .which abs. lay the greater
Ipart of the day, and was watched until
the hour of her death b' her kindheart
ed master. She will be buried on the
premises of Mr. Small's residence to
day,- with her pillow, her wraps, her
china dish and trinkets.. Twenty years
ago Dolly took her seat on the desk of
the late resident Clerk of the House,
John A. Smug, where she sat every day
the Legislature was in session until the
death of Mr. Sznull. She was a general
favorite with the members of the House,
officers, and pages. When the Speaker's
gravel fell at adjournment Dolly always
responded with a gentle bark, and she

she really comprehended their import.
