CHAPTER VII Continued.
"My dear Julia, my nodson, tho
Due do Trcmont." And Sabron bowod
to both tho ladles, to tho duko, and
This was tho picture ho might add
to his collection: tho older woman In
hor vivid dross, Julia In hor slmplor
Kowu, and tho titled Frenchman bow
ing over hor hand.
When ho went out to tho front ter
race Hninot was thoro with his horso,
nnd Pltchouno was thoro as well, stiff
ly waiting at attention.
"Drunct," said tho ofllcor to hlB
man, "will you tako Pltchouno around
to tho scrvnntB' quarters and glvo him
to MIsb Redmond's maid? I am going
to leave him hero."
"Hood, mon Capltalno," Bald tho
ardonnanco, nnd whlstlod to tho dog.
Pltchouno sprang toward IiIb master
with a short sharp bark. What ho un
fdoretood would bo hard to say but all
that ho wanted to do was to remain
with Sabron. Sabron bent down and
"Go, my friend, with Drunot. Go,
mon vloux, go," ho commanded stoni
ly, and tho Httlo dog, trained to
robedlonco as a soldier's dog should bo,
trotted reluctantly at tho heels of tho
.ordonnanco, and tho soldlor throw his
leg over tho snddlo and rodo away.
Ho rodo rogardloss of anything but
vtho fact that ho was going.
Pltchouno was a soldier's dog, born
lu a stable, of a mother who had boon
dear to tho canteen. MIchotto had boon
uno vralo vlvandloro, a real daughter
of tho roglmont.
Pltchouno was a worthy son. Ho
adored tho drums and trumpots. Ho
adored tho flfo. Ho adored tho drills
which ho was nccustomed to watch
from a reapectablo distance. Ho liked
Hninot, and tho word had not yet boon
discovered which would express how
ho folt toward Monsieur lo Capltalno,
IiIb master. HIb muscular Httlo Torm
oxprosflod It In ovory flbor. His brown
oyoa looked It until thoir pathoa might
havo molted a heart of Iron.
Thoro was nothing plcturosquo to
Pltchouno in tho Chateau d'BsclIgnao
or In the charming room to which ho
was brought. Tho Httlo dog took a
flying tour around It, over Bofna and
chnirA, landing on tho window-Boat,
whero ho crouched. Ho was not
wicked, but ho was porfoctly miser
able, and tho lovely wlloa of Julja Rod
mond and her ondearmonts loft him
unmoved. lo rofusod moat and drink,
was Indifferent to tho vlows from tho
window, to tho beautiful vlow of King
Reno's caatlo, to tho tantalizing cat
Bunnlng horsolf against tho wall. Ho
flow about llko mad, leaving destruc
tion in his wako, tuggod at tho loash
when they took him out fotf oxorciBo.
In Bhort, Pltchouno was a homesick,
lovoalck Httlo dog, and thereby on
cleared himself moro than ovor to his
now mistress. Sho tlod a ribbon
around his neck, which ho promptly
chowed off. Sho tried to food him
with hor own fair hands; ho hold his
head high, looked bored and grow thin
In tho flanks.
"I think Captain do Sabron'a Httlo
dog Is going to dto, ma tauto." alio told
"Fiddlesticks, my dear Julia! Koop
him tiod up until ho is accustomed to
tho place. It won't hurt him to fast;
ho will eat whon ho Is hungry. I havo

"Alll" breathed Mian nnilnmml In.
8ho alowly went ovor to hor piano
nnd played a fow measures of music
that were a torturo to Pltchouno, who
found those ladylike performances In
strong contrast to drums nnd trumpots.
Ho folt himself as a soldlor dogradod
nnd could not undorBtnnd why ho
Bhould bo rologated to n salon and to
tho mild society of two ladloB who
did not oven know how to pull his oars
or roll him ovor on tho rug with their
tiding boots and Bpura. Ho sat against
tho window na waa his habit, looking
"Vous avoz tort, ma chore," said her
aunt, who wns working something less
'than a thousand Dowers on her tap
oatry. ''Tho chanco to bo a urlncoas
and a Trcmont dooa not come twlco
In a young girl's liro, nnd you know
79U have only to bo roasonablo, Julia."
Miss Radmond's Angers wandorod,
magnotlcally drawn by her thoughts,
Into a song which she played softly
through. Pltchouno hoard and turned
his beautiful head and his soft oyes to
hor. He knew that tuno. Neither
drums nor trumpets had played It, but
thoro was no doubt about its bolng lit
for soldiers. Ho had hoard his master
sing It, hum it, many times. It had
soothed his norven when ho was a Blck
puppy and It went with many things
of tho intlmato life with his master.
He remomberod It when ho had dozed
by tho flro and dreamed of chasing
cats and barking at Drunot and being
a faithful dog all around; ho heard
again a beloved volco hum it to him.
Pltchouno whlnod and softly Jumped
down from hlB seat. Ho put his fore-
paws on Miss Rodmond's lap. Sho
stopped and caressed him, and ho
licked hor hand.
"That Is tho first tltno I havo soon
that dog show a spark of human
gratitude, Julia. Ho is probably bog
glng you to opon tho door and let him
tako a run."
Indeed Pltchouno did go to tho door
and waited appeallngly.
"I think you might trust him out. I
think ho Is tnmod," said tho Marqulso
d'EscIIgnac. "Ho is a real Httlo sav
age." Miss Redmond opened tho door and
Pltchouno shot out. Sho watched him
tear llko mad across tho terraco, and
flcuttlo Into tho woods, as sho thought,
hftor a rabbit. Ho was tho color of
tho fallon leavos and alio lost sight
of him In tho brown and golden brush,
The Fortunes of War.
Sabron's departure had been do
Iaycd on account of a strike at the
dockyards of Marsolllos. Ho left
Taraacon ono lovoly day toward tho
end of January and tho old town with
Its BweotncBB and Its Borrow, fell be
hind, as ho. rolled away to brighter
Buns. A frlond from Paris took him to
tho port In his motor and thoro Sabron
waited somo forty-olght hours before
ho sot sail. His boat lay out on tho
nzuro water, tho brown rocks of tho
coaBt bohlnd it. Thoro wns not a
broozo to stir as ho took tho tug which
was( to convoy him. Ho waa inclined
to dip hla flngors In tho Indigo ocean,
suro that ho would And thorn blue.
Ho climbed up tho ladder alongsldo of
tho vessel, was welcomed by tho cap
tain, who know him, and turned to go
bolow, for ho had been suffering from
an attack of fovor which now and then
laid hold of him, ovor slnco his cam
paign in Morocco.
Thoroforp.tis ho wont Into his cabin,
which ho did not loavo until the atoam

tho baggago tondor pull up and fallod
to seo a sailor climb to tho dock with

that lookod llko an old fur cap oxcopt

"This, mon commandant," said tho
Bailor to tho captain, "Is tho plucklost

Ho dropped a smull torrlor on tho
dock, who procoedod to shako himself
vigorously and bark with apparent do
light. "No sooner hndj wo pushed out from

from tho plor and began to swim after

Sabron tried to tnko a moro cheerful
vlow of a soldier's Hfo and fortunoa.
Ho was a soldierly Ilguro and a hand

follow ofllcorB who were oagor to boo

That night aftor dinner and a clga
rotto, ho Btrodo Into tho streets to dis
tract hla mind with tho sight of tho
oriental city and to 1111 hla ears with
tho oagor crlOB of tho crowd. Tho
lumps flickered. Tho sky overhead
was as bluo nearly as In day tlmo. Ho
walked loiodroly toward tho native
quarter, Jostlod, as ho passod, by mon

vollod woman or two.
Ho stopped rndlfforontly boforo a lit
tie cafe, his oyes ou Turkish bazaar
whero velvets and scarfs wero being
sold at double their worth under tho
light of a flaming yellow lamp. As ho
stood 30, his back to tho cafo whero n
number of tho ship's crow wore drink
ing, ho henrd a short sharp sound that
had a sweet familiarity about it and
whoso Individuality mado him start
with surprlso. Ho could not bollovo
his cars. Ho heard tho bark again
nnd then ho was sprung upon by a Ht
tlo body that ran out from botwoeu tho
legs of n sailor who Bat drinking his
coffeo nnd liquor.
"Oracloua heavens!" exclaimed Sab
ron, thinking that ho must bo tho vic
tim of a hushlsh dream. "Pltchoune!"
Tho dog fawned on him and whined,
crouched at his feet, whining llko a
child. Sabron bent nnd fondled him.
Tho sailor from tho tablo called tho
dog Imperatively, but Pltchouno would
havo died at his master's feet rather
than return. If his throat could have
uttered words he would have spoken,
but his oyes spoko. Thoy looked as
though they wero tearful.
"Pltchouno, mon vloux! No, It can't
bo Pltchouno. Hut It Is Pltchouno!"
And Sabron took him up In his arms.
Tho dog tried to lick his face.
"Voyons," said tho offlcer to tho ma
rine, who camo rolling ovor to them,
"where did you got this dog?"
Tho young man's volco was Im
perative and he fixed atom eyes on the
sailor, who pulled his forelock and ex
plained. "Ho was following me," said Sabron,
not without n slight catch lu his voice.
Tlio body of Pltchouno quivered under
his arm. "Ho Is my dog. I think his
manner proves it. If you havo grown
fond of him I nm sorry for you, but I
think you will havo to glvo him up."
Snbron put his hand In his pocket

"Thank you for taking caro of him.
I am at tho Royal Hotel." He nodded,
and with Pltchouno under hlB arm
pushed hlB way through the crowd and
out of tho bazaar.
Ho could not interview tho dog him
self, although ho listened, amused, to
Pltchouno'B own manner of speech. Ho
spent tho latter part of the evening
composing a lottor to tho mlnlBter of

havo possessed certain evident and
telling qualities, for beforo ho left Al

NEGLECT OF FARM POULTRY
Most Flocks Are Too Small and Aro
Not Given Attention and Care
Wo believe that we aro Justified in
saying that tho average farmer does
not glvo enough attention to tho
poultry sldo of farming. Experiments
that havo been conducted show that
tho farmer's flock may be mado a
profitable part of his live-stock busi
ness. MoBt flocks aro too small and
do not receive tho attention, Btudy
and caro they should, sayB Utah Farm
er. No live stock pays bigger divi
dends when put on a commercial foot
ing and properly managed. It costs
little moro to caro for a large flock
than for a few hens.
Koop a flock for business reasons
and not merely from force of habit.
Mongrels or Bcrubs aro not tho kind
to have. Get somo pure-bred chlckons
of the kind you llko. Wo would lnugh

upon scrubs to build up his Hve-stock

GROWING FRUIT NEEDS MORE ATTENTION
(Dy W. MILTON KELLY.)
Thoro Is nothing that needB moro
special study and attention than grow
ing fruit for homo use. Tho trouble
now is that nine-tenths of us do not
know how to utilize what nature of
fers. I know a lot of farmers who have
fine buildings, keep good stock, grow
large crops, without having any con
ception of homo and homo Hfo.
What wo need on our farms Is bet
tor homes. We cannot do anything
that will Improve our homes more
than growing an abundance of cholco
fruit for homo use. Every farmer's
gardon should have a strawberry bed,
that tho table may bo supplied with
this fruit fresh and have a surplus
for the cans and Jelly tumblers.
Tho best way to secure plants Is to
havo trial beds set with tho leading
varlotles. In this way it Is easy to
determine the relative merits of tho
different varieties, and grow vigorous
plants for tho next year'a beds.
There is no danger of losing planta
when they can be taken from tho trial
beds and removed to tho garden rows,
but when coming from a long distance
they are apt to heat, and very few
can be saved.
When received by mall or express,
they should be opened at once, tho
roots shortened about one-third with
a sharp knife, and the plants spread
loosely In a cool, damp place, or in
water in which soil has been mixed.
No Imperfect plants should be set.
Sldo runners frequently appear between-tho
sets, and pursue tho samo
course of establishing plants as the
main runners. Thoy aro Jlttle better
than weeds. By setting out only the
best plants tho bedB will not run out.
In Betting plants, give them plenty
of room, so the air can circulate free
ly, and winged Insects can go from
flower to flower, that perfect 'fertiliza
tion may be obtained, and enable the
hoe and cultivator to work among tho
plants, and work into the soil quickly
After tho fruiting season arrives,
there will be a better chance to place
tho mulching between the rows and
about the plants, for tho double pur
pose of protecting tho berries from
dirt and retaining moisture for tho
plants, for in tho fruiting season the
plants must have plenty of water to
give the best results.
Tho strawberry should bo moro
widely cultivated among farmers, who,
with plenty of land and dressing,
seem to havo no excuse for not hav
ing tholr tables well supplied with this

uso. It cannot bo shipped long dis
tances without being more or lesa In

yield crops the second year aftor
Tho first year. It makes canes, and
the second year fruit. Two or three
long rows across tho garden will fur
nish an abundance of this fruit for
tablo uses and, for canning.
Tho currant' can be grown to great
perfection and large yields can bo ob
tained. Tho hilling of tho bushes
should bo avoided and rather shallow
Tho old method still recommends
Itself to me as tho beBt way to prop
agato tho currant. Wo tako tho
largest and strongest stalks of ono
year's growth from tho bush and cut
off tho top of this stalk close to tho
bud to boo If tho wood is sound and
If tho color Is black, or It Ib hollow,
wo cut off tho end until good live
wood Is obtained. Shape tho lower
end Into a blunt wodgo form closo to
tho bud, which we nro careful not to
rub or Injure. Rub off every othor
bud, except two or threo at tho top
of the stalk, from which tho branches
Theso stalks can bo thrust Into the
ground four to six Inches. If this Is
done early in tho spring tho roots
will aoon appear at the lower end of
tho cutting and a strong, vigorous
bush or treo form will bo tho rosult.
Bushes grown In this treo form can
bo pruned and cultivated easier than
any othor form of growth. When
pruning let three or four branches
grow each year, and after a branch
has borno two crops romovo It.
In this way a healthy and well bal
anced top enn be sustained for a long
time, and it will not become so thick
that only Inferior fruit can bo' pro
duced. Gooseberries require an opon, airy
situation nnd clean culture. Tho tops
must bo kept well thlnnod out, to In
euro good fruit. Thoy Bhould be
dressed with well-composted manure,
and no weeds should bo allowed to
grow In tho towb. These precautions
aro necessary to ward oft mildew.
Tho treo form of growth Is best Bult
ed for this berry, as well as tho cur
rant. Borers seldom trouble tho goose
berry. In propagating wo employ tho
layer Byatem, which Is dono by so
curing tho thrifty bushes to tho
ground, and placing soil over them,
whea they will start a root system.
Right after these smaU fruits wo

Every fruit grower wants a small
pear'orchard, because there aro a fow
varieties of the fruit about as near
perfection as anything that has been
evolved in tho orchard line. Next to
tho omall fruits these' trees aro tho
most valuable in the farm garden.
As an all-around fruit tho grapo
ranks next to the apple. Fifty or one
hundred vines of well-selected va
rieties will afford plenty ot this
healthy fruit from tho middle of Au
gust until frost comes.
Then, by taking precautions, and
carefully storing late varieties in a
cool room, we can keep them in ex
cellent condition for Christmas and
No other fruit can tako tho placo of

ford an abundant supply of delicious

heavy mulching should bo applied Just
before tho fruiting season begins.
This can bo dono with but little
labor If tho canes havo been kept in
rows whero they belong. All manur
