Although Ixiyal wns not a Binall dog
his stubbornness was disproportionate
ly lnrge. Moreover lie had tlio advan
tage of most men, Including his mas
ter, In always knowing his awn mind.
Ono Octobor day the nlr breathed
Into Loyal's soul a challcngo for a
stroll, and as tlio family was very un
interesting whllo unpacking after a
summer spent In Europe, he unhesi
tatingly accepted tlio challenge and
walked out of the open door.
For several blocks he walked behind
a girl with yellow brown hair, whoso
gown, hat, gloves and shoes wero tlio
flhado of his own coat. It may have
been a sense of harmony of colors, or
it may havo been just dog sense that
led him to walk nearer the girl, finally
pushing a cold noso Into the hand
hanging loosely at her side.
Ho must havo known that she would
neither ntnrt nor cry out. Sho only
looked down nt him with plcuBcd sur
prise and closed her hand tightly over
"Good morning, you handsomo dogt
You seem to know your admirers nt
sight. I wonder who. your master Is?"
The briskness of their pace soon
brought them to Madison avenuo and
Forty-second streot, where the girl in
brown, after patting lior companion
on tho head and addressing numerous
flattering remarks to him, boarded a
west-bound car. Looking back she

All that day, Katherlno Raymond
found her mind wnndorlng to the fine
St. Bernard who had joined her early
morning walk. Sho would havo been
astonished had sho realized how often
in the following days Bhe thought of
him, pondering his act, his name and
his home. Four days passed and
Wednesday's outdoor beauty prevailed
upon Knthnrlne, who, dressed in brown
as usual, went forth to enjoy a walk.
The avenuo was noisy, although ap
parently desorted, so sho turned
The Muscular YounfitMan Took It
Whllo Aoologlzlng for the Dog's
toward Madison, nnd, rounding the
corner, met Loyal, who nearly knocked
her down by his joyful recognition.
Ho soon grow calm except for his
tall and marched proudly by hor, 3lde,
with frequent long upward looks into
hor face, which, was turned toward
him as often as might be.
At tho end of a mile, they turned,
seemingly of ono accord, and retraced
Tho girl nnd the dog, so allko in
color, attracted considerable attention,
of which both wore wholly uncon
scious. At tho stops of her homo Katherlne
u. j u3
discovered that she had a problem to
solve, for her four-footed escort ap
peared astonished at her Inhospitable
hesitation, and stiongly Indicated his
desiro to enter, showing by many
signs his natural stubbornnoss, oven
lifting up his voice to emphnslze it.
"Perhaps," whlspored Katherlne,
"you arc a lost dog," and for the first
v- time she thought of his collar. Bend-
Bent 1MB Bno read: "Loyal, 29 West
accoi'ijtreet." Tho address given was so
near by that after some debato with
her inclination, sho decided to lenvo
him outside and watch whether he
went in tho right dlrection"",Thls he
did, but not until an hour's patient
waiting had satisfied his mind that his
new friend was capablo of disappoint
ing him, that sho was not coming
forth again, nor was he expected to
follow her Inside.
Scarcely a morning passed that, free
ing himself from tho company of his
master and hl3 master's family, ho did
not mako an attempt, with only oc
casional success, to visit Katherlne.
When ho wbb not made welcomo he
seemed to realize- that there wdb somo
good'ieason for it' and went away
Late- ono afternoon, on a com and
windy day, Katherlne was returning
home. Down tho avenuo came n fright
ened horse, madly plunging from sldo
to side in n useless endeavor to escapo
the, mass of vehicles. A, tiny, child
urbkl'-f from :lls nucs'e .hand' jind
dodged his- way to the mlfldie 'of the

hugo yellow dog plunged through the
crowd of pedestrians and dashed to
the side of the girl, pulling her from
under the horses, at the same instant
that a muscular young man grasped
the horse's head and was dragged oft
his foot hoforo Ihe bowlldered animal
wns brought to n stand.
After a few moments of excitement
order was restored nnd It was found
that the only damage done was tbnt to
tho tawny colored dress Katlicrlno
worcy-a piece of fchlch still clung to
Loyal's teeth and attracted tho atten
tion of tho muscular young man who
took It, while apologizing for his dog's
Knthcrlno's smile puzzled him, as
did Loyal's behavior when sho put her
hand on his head and spoke affection
ately to him.
Months later the last person to
board tho five o'clock Krlo ferryboat
was Katherlne Raymond, and ns tho
gang plank was removed cries from
many throats filled the air, for a
beautiful St. llernnrd had rushed to
tho edgo and bounded over chains
and rails and nn expanse of foam
ing, soothing water. A murmur of re
lief rose when ho landed, safe, on the
ferry deck, and a gill In golden
brown pressed to tho edgo cif
tho boat, nnd waving a brown
hand seemed to signal to some one in
tho crowd on shore.
To Stanley Wclllngcamp it was in
tolerable the time that wns consumed
In loading the next ferry, nnd a year
seemed to pass between tho tlmo of
starting and that of landing on tho
Jersey Bide, for his mood counted time
by changes of emotions and accumula
tion of sensations. Did tho girl in
brown (he knew now that ho had riot
succeeded In forgetting her for a
single day since the runaway Incident)
mean for him to cross or wait at tho
Nover had he or his feelings been
so( confused, and ho was at a complcto
loss,. to know what ho should Bay to
this 'girl who had such nn attraction
for Loyal, tho dog whoBe friendship
had nover before been given to any
ono outside tho Welllngcamp house
hold. What to say need not have troubled
him in tho lenst.
Katherlne nnd Loyal wero waiting
nt tho ferry house. "I am sorry," she
paid at once, "that I havo been tho
cause of this Inconvenience to you. but
I am glad, very glad, that nothing hap
pened to Loyal. I was torribly fright
ened. Of course, no ono could havo
thought of such a thing, but perhaps
it would bo safer, In such crowds, to
havo a chain. Good-by, Loyal, old fel
low. Thank you, sir, for coming over;
I must catch my train."
That was all. She was gone, nnd
he hnd not opened -his lips. If he was
confused before, he was now In a tu
mult of exasperation and anger; anger
at his own stupidity, and ho heaped
curses upon his own head for having
been made a fool of by a big dog nnd
a brown girl. He camo near includ
ing Loyal in his dispensations of male
dictions, but remembered tho dog's
fault was an excess of affection fur a
girl, a girl in brown. Ho tried to con
solo himself by recalling her rupld
speech, her haste and tho size of tho
rushing crowd, but ho could 'not forco
tho fact to givo him any credit.
He attempted to forget it; tho trial
lasted a month, then ho gavo up, and,
In a dissatisfied frame of mind, start
ed for Ills vacation In tho Pennsyl
Young Wclllngcamp decided to leavo
Loyal with his father, but the dog
scented the threatened separation and
used IiIb powers of persuasion, so
when Stanley "boarded tho ; train h.Q.
was accompanied by Loyal, with a
very jolly wag in his tall.
At tho Water Gap a slight accident
delayed tho train, and Stanley took
ocendon to oxerclso Loyal and stretch
his own long legs by walking tho
streets near tho railroad. Tho dog
grivi restless and uneasy nnd became
deaf to his master's volco. As tho
whlstlo of tho engine warned "all
aboard' Loyal dashed madly away, on
and on, until out of sight.
Really concerned, fearing something
had happened to tho dog, Stanley hur
ried after him, losing considerable
time by mistaking tho corner which
had been Loyal's vanishing point. At
ost. ho turned tho right ono nnd saw
A vine-covered piazza of a.Seml-colo-nlal,

Wilt first appears in tho latter part
df May or in June, when tho young
cotton is 8 to 12 inches high. It is
most prevalent during June and July,
but Bomo cases contlnuo to develop
until tho end of tho season.
The appearnnco of a cotton plant
attacked by wilt varies somowhat, de
pending on tho ago of the plant and,
tho severity of tho attack. Somo plants
wilt suddenly and dlo almost in a
day; others pass through intermediate
stages, with leaves slowly turning
yellow, especially around tho margins
and between tho veins, and fall oif.
Often a branch near tho ground makes
considerable growth and partially re
covers, producing a dwarf, bushy
Tho most characteristic symptom of

differ considerably In susceptibility to

that as a general rulo tho large-boll
sorts, Russol, Trultt, etc., aro moro
subject to wilt than other groups of
varieties. Tho most resistant of tho
American Upland varieties tested was
the Jaskson Limbless, which produced
about 4C per cent of a crop where
other kinds failed. Tho original Jnck
son was not sufficiently resistant to
Justify Its general cultivation, hut It
has been of vnluo as a basis for breed
ing bettor races.
Egyptian cotton is more resistant to
wilt than Upland cotton, but it has
not ns yet boon found practicable to
Utilize this quality, as tho Egyptian
varieties do not succeed In our Sputh
castern States and It Is easier to breed

ties than from crossos with Egyptian
Tho Individual differences In cotton
plants havo been utilized as n basis
for breedlnc now rcslatnnt strains.
wTho work of .tho Bureau of Plant In
dustry has now bcon continued along
this lino for eight years, and has re
sulted in the succossful development
of two now vnrlotles that can bo
grown on tho worst Infected land, pro
vided a rotntion of crops for tho con
trol of root-knot is 'practical.
Tho development of such vnrletles
howover, Is neither quickly nor easily
accomplished, but requires breeding
by exact methods for Bovcrnl years.
It will not suillco to send pickers
through tho fields to gather seed cot
ton from apparently resistant plnnts,
as some havo recommenced. Our ex
perience has been that such mass se
lection is oxpenslvo nnd Ineffective.
Much of tho seed obtained is taken
from plants not truly resistant, and
tho succeeding crop Is nearly as much
diseased ns tho first. Whllo such a
method should result In Increasing
tho resistance of tho crop In the long
run, tho cross-polllnatlon between re
sistant and nonrcslstant plants greatly
delays tho results, Tho correct
method Is to soloct with groat care
0. small number of plants that appear
to bo healthy, though growing In the
worst Infected areas. Tho seed from
each of these plants must bo kept
Bcpnrato and planted In parallel rows
on Infected land tho next year. Tho
rosultlng progony will show which of
tho plants selected transmits the re
sistant quality In tho most cffcctlvo
manner. Tho rows will also vary
much In productiveness and other
qualities. Tho best ono should bo se
lected and tho other discarded. In
somo cases a roslstant row of satis
factory quality has been found tho
first year, and only two moro sea?
sons wero required to multiply tho
seed, but moro often complete success
has not been hnd at once and tho
work 1iad to bo ropoated.
The origination of now wllt-reslstant
varieties is work for tho plant breeder
rather than tho geifer'al farmer, nnd
there is need for men In every county
to take up tho business of breeding
to supply this demand. Tho farmer,
however, should practlco selection to
further Improve tho strain purchased
from breeders, or at leust to presorvo
It from, deterioration. Tho Bureau of
Plant Industry doslrcs to stlmulato

varieties of cotton. To this end it will
