" Rabbit-hounds are scarce, and con sequently very expensive," said a Broome street dog-dealer. "There is one that hasn't his equal in the city. Come here, Stench, you're wanted." Stench came slowly out of a corner. He was a tri-colored dog black and white, and the white specked out with yellow dots. His nose was long and his tail was thick. Outside of a dog fancier's establishment it would have been easy to classify him. Here.howevcr, he was not a cur, but a rabbit-hound. " He has one great advantage over most dogs of his kind," said the dealer. " He is full of pluck. He will not allow a stranger to touch me. Just put your hand on my shoulder and see what he will do."
