The true story about dog and cat. The Boys are not apt to forget a promise of a story. Frank and Harry did not fail to call upon their mother for the history of the old musket. It appeared to me, said the mother that the old musket was not very willing to tell his story. He had a sort of old republican pride, and felt himself superior to the rest of the company in character and importance. When he had made himself heard in the world hitherto it had always been by one short, but very decided and emphatic word he despised any thing like a palaver; so he began very abruptly and as if he had half a mind not to speak at all, because he could not speak in his own way. None but fools, said he have much to say about themselves Deeds, not words is a good motto for all. But as I would not be churlish and as I have agreed as well as the rest of my companions to tell my story I will mention what few things worth relating I can recollect.
