splendid roomy aviary and carefully
fed and nourished: but, although It was
kept here, living Jn the lap of royal
luxury for four years, the French
pigeon did not forgot Its fatherland.
At the end of that time the aviary
was left open one day. The pigeon
flew out, mounted high In the air, flew
about for a moment as If to find the
