A Generous Revenge

A young man, desirous of getting rid of his dog, took it along with him to

the river. He hired a boat, and rowing into the stream, threw the animal

in. The poor creature attempted to climb up the side of the boat, but his

master, whose intention was to drown him, constantly pushed him back with

the oar. In doing this, he fell himself into the water, and would

certainly have been drowned, had not the dog, as soon as he saw his master

struggling in the stream, suffered the boat to float away, and held him

above water till assistance arrived, and his life was saved.
