Susan: Master Clifford Hudgins is the owner of a fishing line and hook; he also claims a large stock in a terrier pup that has lately been introduced into the family.

Then the problem arose, how could the pup be gotten from the hook? It was determined that a surgical operation was to be performed and the most difficult part was in keeping the patient quiet. After some time, by means of a bag and a quantity of twine, with the loss of some blood and much noise, the hook and pup were separated.
