One morning a hen strayed out of the
chicken yard and was quietly picking up
her breakfast, when Poll marched up to
her and railed out, "Shoo!"' in her shrill
voice. The poor hen retreated to her own
quarters, running as fast as she could, fol
lowed by Poll, who screamed "Shool" at
A few days later Poll extended her morn
ing walk into the chicken yard. Here,
with her usual curiosity, siie went peering
into every corner till the came to tbe old
ben on her nest. The hen made a dive for
Poll's yellow head, but missed it. Poll,
thinking discretion the better part of valor,
turned to run; the hen, with wins wide
spread, followed close after.
As she ran Poll screamed in her shrill
est tones, "O Lord! O Lord!''
A member of the family who had wit
nessed the performance thought it time to
interfere in Poll's liehalf, as the angry hen
was Lrtiinini; on her. lie ran out and, stoop
ing down, helil out- bis hand. Poll lost no
time in traveling up to hi-shoulder. Then,
from her hiiji vantage ground, she turned

'Hello, there! shoo!"'
