Student’s Journal. A Dog’s Broken Heart. —Dr. Calderwood, Professor of Moral Philosophy in i the University t of Edinburgh, has, in kis work recently published, entitled “ The Relations of Mind and Brain,” the .following story of a dog :—“ A dog belonging to a United Presbyterian minister killed the fowls while the family were at church, and buried them in the garden. The bodies were found. The dog was taken to the garden, and immediately confessed his guilt. His master took him to his library, and, having shut the door, began a reprimand after this fashion;— ‘ What a wicked thing you have done in murdering the hens ! You are a minister’s dog, and should have' been an example to other dogs, instead’ of doing such a thing as this. Thon, this is the Sabbath day, and the deed is ail the worse on account of the day on which it had been done.’ Thus admonished,, the dog was put out of the door, and the door shut. Next morning he was found dead. A veterinary surgeon was consulted, and declared that the dog had died of a broken heart.
