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.
