FlUII A BIUBO 'S TEETH. A powerful and fe?ooo bulldog, owned by Dr. Ward, of Soanton, Pa., oejoys the distinction of having a big gold filling In one of his iniLoers, and many who have oaught a gleam of the gold in his mouth, wonder how the filling was done. The dog's name is Gem. He is as ugly in appearance as a prize winner ina dog show. lis nose isa masse of wrinkles, and his eyes have a wicked gleam for any one but his master and Mrs. Ward. His affection for them, however, knows no bounds. When Gem was discovered one day claspiug his muzzle between his paws, rolling over and over on the floor, and moaning, his mouth was examined, and it was found that there woas a big cavity in one of the incisors.

PRIVATE SCHUYLER'S DISGRACE. [Newspaper Article] — Evelyn Observer and Bourke East Record — 21 November 1902

PRIVATE SGHUYLER'S DISGRACE. Private John Schoyler was a member of Troop M, -lth United States Cavalry. He was an old soldier who had worn the blue uniform of the regular army for ovel twenty-eight years. Thie sleeves of his dress-coat, as he wore it on Sunday morning inspections, showed six service and three camunigii stripes. lie had served in every branch of the line-infantry, cavalry, and artillery,. and hlis sleeves, from forearm to elbow, showed an artistic and picturesque dis play of blue. yellow, and red. Above the elbow, where the chevrons of noen commissioned oflicers are worn,no badge of rank anpeared. Schuyler had never been promoted ; at least he would never admit that lie had been promoted; although it was said by some, without any apparent truth of the story, that lie had been a corporal for a short time in the infantry. lie had always been a mounted soldier, with the excep tion of three ye:'ra as an infantryman, which always remained to him as a kind of nightmare.
