SAVED BY A DOG
CHILD FALLS INTO WELL, AND HIS DOG BRINGS RESCUER IN TIME.
Sheldon, N.D., Aug 19— Dail Doty, the 3-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Doty, had quite a thrilling experience. In the lot north of the house there is a well used for watering the stock. For some reason one of the planks of the cover had been removed and a thin board substitute therefor. The child evidently stepped upon the thin board which broke and precipitated him into the well, which was twelve feet deep and contained about two feet of water. One of the older Doty boys happened to be at the barn when the dog ran up to him and began acting in a peculiar manner, then ran to the well where he continued his peculiar actions. The boy ran to the well and looking down saw his little brother at the bottom clinging to the iron piping. He quickly climbed down and placed the little fellow in a place of temporary safety. He then ran back to the barn where he secured a rope, and returning to the well, hauled his little brother out, who was none the worse for his experience.
