LII. NETHEKLAKD DOG. The Netherland dogs have a history that for courage isalmost sublime. They passed through many conflicts, but achieved successin time. Giving all they had to their country, their lives and treas-ure as well. With promptness they shouldered their muskets at thesound of a Netherland bell. LIII.SWISS DOGS. One day in nineteen hundred, amid the jingling of cow-bells, This story had its birth in the land of William Tell. The spot was on a mountain of broad expanse and pur-est air, Not far from Dent du Midi and near the Chamossaire. IN PROSE AND RHYME. 107 The people are simple and honest, and to dumb animals kind.They crack their whips at the horses, but to beat them never enters their minds.Oh, its a beautiful country of mountains and valleys fair,Not far from Dent du Midi and near the Chamossaire.

The snow covers all the mountains, while near it is genial and warm.Above are snowTdrifts and glaciers, below not even a storm.Its a region of legends and stories historically rare,Not far from Dent du Midi and near the Chamossaire.Beyond the Savoy Mountains, we see the Saint Bernard,Where dogs perform hard labor without the least reward.For man they give their lives, and any hardships bear,Not far from Dent du Midi and near the Chamossaire. 108 DOGS OF ALL NATIONS Go where you will in Switzerland, the dogs have a glo-rious name. Their history dates back many centuries, with each theyincrease their fame. Milk carts and wagons they draw, and many other bur-dens bear, Not far from Dent du Midi and near the Chamossaire.
