Willis FRANKLIN, a gardener, residing at Florence in this county, was rescued from being frozen to death during the late intense cold spell by his faithful Shepard dog. He started to cross the Missouri on the ice to visit a friend living a mile or so within the Iowa confines. When near the opposite bank he was seized with an epileptic fit and fell on the ice. He must certainly have perished of the cold but his devoted canine friend did his utmost to arouse him with barking, licking his face and pulling at this clothing. Finally FRANKLIN recovered sufficiently enough to sit up and realizing that he was rapidly freezing he called to his dog and grasping him by the tail bade him to go home. The intelligent animal seemed to understand what was wanted of him and started to scramble back across the bleak river. After much tugging he reached the Nebraska bank and here he set up such a dismal howling that he attracted the attention of some passer-by. Although FRANKLIN escaped with his life both hands and one foot were badly frozen.
