THE WATCH D'OG. I FRENCH CANINES ON SENTRY GO. The following picturesque account appears U1 the "Figaro of one of the dogs used by the Frethch for sentry purposes. A -mail post seahtars y Curn poses. A small post has been establiahed at a sharp turning. It is tpoken of as the Dog Post, as dogs mount guard there. The ant- mal on duty is called Portos. He is of me- dium size, curly-haired, with long silky ears, and great grey eyes, with a red tongue that as it hang? out looks like a slice of ham. Every night a soldier brings him to his post, a sort of rock, well hidden, out out of the marl. When night comes Portos sits by the side of the two sentinels and watches. Wild and excitable when off duty, he is just as attentive a.nd serious w hen on guard. It is no good trying to pat him. Nothing can dis- tract his attention, and he seems to know the Dart he nla-vs in the Quadruple Entente. 4 W A Keen Sentinel. He listeria with his long ears pricked up, 1 tries to pierce the darkness with his large grey eyes, sniffs every breath of air with abated noftril?. If there i Mythmi? nn- usual he gi ves a low grow l to attract a aeotinel. He is no partisan of Kultur, and unquestionably hates the Boches. But as day dawns Portos, despite himself, becomes mere of a d- g. keeps glancing at the btit where his master sleeps, and only a sign is necassarj. for him to lOrY "good-bye" to hie comrades who shave the night watch with him and to jump off his rock in a. state of the W1>et joy. jrtr mm mmmmm— I ——
