Grinnell (Poweshiek Co.) Iowa


From Iowa county to the north-
west. Then lost in Saskatchewan, Can. But he still wore an Iowa
county license number around his

This, briefly, is the story of a little black and white dog that might have had a tragic ending had not a kind-hearted woman, Mrs. E.W. Carr, secretary of the Moose Jaw, (Sask.) Humane society intervened.

She found the dog wandering around, apparently lost. She cared for him, and advised the American Humane association, Albany, N.Y., of her ward asking help to locate the owner. The license tag, bearing number 159, issued by Auditor Ben Franks in 1928, furnished the key to the investigation. The association president wrote to the auditor, who discovered from his records that the owner is D.L. Mason of North English. His son, Jesse, who now lives in Seattle, Wash., took the dog with him to the northwest last fall and gave it to a friend. Mr. Mason is writing his son about the "tale of the little lost dog."

The association president also wrote the P-R, enlisting its aid in locating the owner.--Marengo Pioneer Republican.
