A Faithful Companion

A gardener, in removing some rubbish, discovered two ground toads of an

uncommon size, weighing no less than seven pounds. On finding them, he was

surprised to see that one of them got upon the back of the other, and both

proceeded to move slowly on the ground towards a place of retreat; upon

further examination he found that the one on the back of the other had

received a severe contusion from his spade, and was rendered unable to get

away, without the assistance of its companion!
