The Steubenville Herald is responsible for the following :
PETER WETHERALL, a saloonist, has a pretty King Charles Spaniel named Frank.
Today he was out on the pavement in front of the Herald office, barking when there was nothing to bark about.
Mr. Wetherall was asked what was the matter with his dog, he said he had been drinking, and as in the case of a man, it had made him noisy.
Frank has cultivated a taste for beer. He will loaf around the trough where the beer is on the drought, and drink the drippings till he can't walk, if he doesn't get enough to make him sleepy drunk, he gets noisy.
