liic Faithful Stniind.
The French army lay encamped about
dr.v’s march from Berlin. The ser.ti

Men. f' r Frussiau and Austrian
j es were plenty and troublesome. At
. ,] o ight Pierre Sancoin was stationed at
,- n(J Jf the onqiosts. He was a stout,
shrewd man, and a good soldier.—
]i,c colonel of his regiment was with the
r gennt on this beat, Laving requested to
p-tailed at midnight, that he might vis

Pierre, ho said, after the men had been

Dion colonel, I shall be prompt.
The dogs arc ali around us, and you can
net be Foo careful. Don’t trust men nor
Never fear, was Pierres answer, as j
he brought bis firelock to his shoulder, I
and moved back a pace.
After this the guard moved on to the I
next post, and Pierre Sancoin was left ,
alone. Pierros post was one of the most i
niportant in the can p, or around it, and
I he bad been placed there for that reason.
; The ground over which be bad to walk
wns a long knoll, bounded at ono end by
I fi huje rock, and the other sloping away
into* narrow ravine, in which was a
copse of willows. Beyond the copse
the ground was low and boggy, so that
n man could not pass it. The rock was i
to the westward, r.nd Pierre’s walk was
| en its outer side.
The night was quite dark and huge
mr ses of clouds floated overhead, shut- I
tins out the stars ; and a sort of fog ;
seemed to be rising also from the marsh.
I The wind moaned through the copse in
the ravine, and the air was damp and
cLii'lv. With a slow, steady tread, the
soldier paced bis ground, ever and anon
stepping to listen, as the willows in the
i wim' rattled their leaves, or some night
L:rJ started out with its quick flapping.
Au hour bad passed away and the
i?:.; r.ei had seen nothing to excite bis
suspicion. H li id stopped for a mo
ricut close by the side of the rock, when ,
he was startled by a quick, wild scream
!r in the wood, and in a few moments
□ore a large bird flaw over his head.
Parbleu ! he muttered, alter the n gl t
rd had flown over; ciu'd mortal n a:i
_:.ve Stopped that follow passing ?
H? satisfied him-elf that he had done ’
:.:lhitig wrong in suffering the bird to ■
:a s s. He Lad walked the length of his
nav two or three times and was just tur
ning bv the ruck, when he was sure he ’
saw a dark object crossing the line to •
wards the copse.
II id 1 he cries, bringing the musket i
r ,;?k to his shoulder. Hold, or 1 fire I,
And with his piece at aim, he nd- j
I van el towards the spot where the ob-I
i et s - ; ped ; but as he caine to within
f a few r.n;» of it, it started to move on i
ag,v.7i toward the camp.
D.ab> ! cried Pierre, move any fur- i
t : and 1 fire ’. What, pardieu 1 Le i
Pii.ro ? Ho. ho; why Prince I
The animal turned and made a mo
■ >. as though he would leap upon the 1
t iiiei's bosom, but the soldier motion- ■
e; mtn off.
Bravo, Prince, Pierre cried, reaching
fr ii ins baud and patting tho head of
groat shaggy Least, which had now
ta: upon his haunches. Pierre rccog
u z d the intruder as a great dog of the
breed of St. Bernard, which had been
vM;eJ ,n the regiment for over a year,
ar. i which had been missing for about a
neek. He disappeared one night from
‘ro pickets, and all search for him had
been unavailing.
Parbleu, mon grand Prince, Pierre tit
ered, as though the dog could under*
rtaud every word.; the men will be happy
I I ■> see vou; where have you been so
■L Vv* *
» Ike dog made no answer to this, save
r. I. v wL.ne, and a familiar nodding of
I tfci’ head.
N jw, tnon ami, you ju»t keep x our
s : r g there, until the guard comes, and
t'roi we will go to the camp together.—
?hnd that, will you ?
And with these words, uttered with
i 'ran emphasis, and due meaning, Pier
r started on his beat again. He had
u t half way to the rock, when the idea
1 oking around struck him and he did
• . Le Prince was moving towards the
camp again.
Ila I Prince, that won’t do ! Stop 1
! ‘op lor I’ll shoot ! Diable, the colo
isn wrs positive in his orders. I was to
let nothing pass my post without the
countersign. A dog is something. You
can’t go Prince, so now lie down.—
Down ’. Down, I say ’.
With this the dog lay flat on hi* belly,
and stretched out his fore paws. Pier
re patted him upon the head again, and
having duly urged upion him the necessi
ty of remaining where he was, he re
sumed his inarch once more.
Durng the next fifteen minutes tho
animal lav perfectly quiet, and ever and
*.n ■» the sentinel would speak to biin by
way of being sociable. But at length
-log made another attempt to go into
camp. Pierre had nearly reached the
r "k when ho heard the movement, and
n tuinirg he could just see his uneasy
< ii’’mron making off.
D -Me ! the honest fellow muttered,
I must obey'orders. The colonel’s word
s plain. Here ! Parbleu ! Come
-fie 1 Hero. Prince I Mon Dieu ! you
®iist die if you don’t 1
With a few bounds the soldier had got
n c ar enough to fire, and as tho latter
stopped he stopped.
Mon cherami, you must stay with ine!
” er e I Come back .' I must shuot if
> 'i don't. Parbleu! what a thing to
raise the whole camp for, to shoot a dog!
But by coaxing and threatening, the
r - r tme! got the dog back to his post, and
1 lf re lie made him lie down once more.
Ami thus matters rested until tne tramp
c ’becoming guard was heard.
Ah, now. Prince will be relieved, the

he tramp of the coming guard drew
aud Pierre war preparing to hail
them when the dog took a new .-tart, an 1
in a new direction this time, starting to
wards tho copse.
Here, here, Prince ! Parbleu, don’t
you run of] again.
But the animal took no other notice of
the cal! than to quicken his speed.
Back 1 back ! Here.
Grand Dieu I This last exclamation
was forced from Pierre's bps, by seeing
tho dog leap to his hind legs and run
thus ! Quick as thought lie clapped his
gun to his shoulder and took aim. He
could just distinguish the outlines now,
and he fired. There was a sharp cry,
and then Pierro bad to turn to the guard
who were approaching.
Qui est la ?—Who is there ? be cried.
Relief guard, was the answer.
And having obtained the countersign,
Le informed the officer what had bap
A dog ? cried tho officer. Prince did
you say ?
He looked like Prince; but, diable,
you should have seen him run off on his
hind legs !
Eh ? Hind legs ?
Then come; show us where he was.
With this the officer of the mounting
guard pulled the lantern from his breast,
and having removed the shade he started
on. Pierre led the way to the copse, and
there the dog was found iu tne last strug
gles of death.
The officer stooped down and turned
him over.
Grand Dieu ! ho exclaimed, what legs
for a dog, eh !
And no wonder he did so. The hind
legs of the animal were b< oted, and had
every appearance of the pedal extremi
ties of the genus man. But all doubts
were removed very quickly, for ns the of
ficer turned the body again, a deep groan
came up, and the words, God take me
in the Prussian tongue, followed.
Diable ! here’s an adventure ! mut
tered the officer, and made Pierre hold
the lantern while he ripped op«n enough
of the dog's skin to find bis face. But ■
they concluded not to stop there to in
vest gate, so they formed a litter by cros
sing their muskets, and lifting the strange
animal upon it, they proceeded on th -ir
wav. When they reached the camp
hey found half the soldiers up, waiting
to find out why the gun was fired.
Lights weie brought, and the body
placed upon the ground. Tho dog skin
was removed, and within was found a
Prussian drummer. He was a small fel
low, though apparently some twenty
years of age; but he was dead, Pierre’s
ball having touched his heat, or some
where very near it. His pockets were
overhauled, and in one of them was
found a cypher, but no one could make
anvth’ng out. The colonel took it. and
directed that the body should be placed
out <>f s : ght for burial on the morrow.
B it this was not the About four
o’c'o k, just before daylight, another gun
wns fire 1 on the same post where Pierre
had been, and this time a man was shot
who was trying to make his escape from
thecamp. He was shot through the head.
When the body was brought into camp,
it was found to be that of a Bavarian
trooper who hnd been suspected of
treachery, though no proof bad been
found against him. Ou his person was
found the key to the cypher which had
been taken from the person of tho Prus
sian drummer; and now that tho Colo
nel had them both, he could trai a ate the
mystic scroll. It j>r<>vd to be
a ' direction to tho ‘Bavai an to
lay his plans for keeping as near to Na
polcon’s person as possble. niter he
should enter Berlin, and then wait for
further orders.
The mystery was explained. The
Bavarian had contrived to call tho great
dog away from the regiment and deliver- I
<d him up t*» the enemy, and his skin
was to be the cover for a spy to enter the
camp under. And the spy would have
got in, too. but for ihc sportive order of
the Colonel, and the willfully faithful
obedience of Pierre Sancoin.
On the next day, Pierre was promoted
to tho rank of Sergeant, and the Empe
ror said to him, as be bestowed the boon ;
If vou only make as faithfid an officer as
you have proved yourself faithful as a
sentinel, I can ask no more.
