The harrasacd man went out to the poature where the eell-drilleiej were at wort. Ron, Tim and Bath watched him amble BtoWly toward them.

NO one came to disturb the buy, and the Dachsiea left him alone, too they had business of their own to handle Then one flay the world fell with a crash around the ears of the boy, and it nearly landed g,n the Daclialos. There was to m a special, extra fancy dress parade of the skllers in honor of the Emperor. The officer hurried to his homo to drasa In his spscisl parade uniform. It so happened the boy and the .logs were out fishing that afternoon, st the officer found his room qaita as It nhpuld ktave been. Then suddenly ha bellowed In a voice llko thunder. The boy and dears, returning fsom tlolr fishing trip, were just pjsSflng under the window. THBf hjoird and all three shivered and attnok and listened! Than the thunder slowed down, and they heard shouts of com-nSDtBl to servants ard any one Asp Would listen. Tla nice, dignified, Important SScer said, "Someone, someone bum chewed a great round hole in tan heal of each at my special rasaarS) boots. I am furious !" Ties boy grabbed a dog jjnder daea arm and Jteiv into the woodjt, hook wanra he'd bean fisjilns. Ttsjaas ha tied them to a tree and dat baslde them. He was frightened and a little angry at his Dachsiea, too. IE said: "Now you've done it! Stop wagging and listen! What did you have to be so arnarty for anyway? How can Father wear those boota to the parade for the Empeftr with his white sox showing through the heals?" Ttean he got up and walked around and around the tree. Now tUa Ductules felt badly, and they ly down on the fround and lifted thotr little brown eyebrows with ashamed, tuvi eyes, watching the boy. After a long time of great silence, the boy untied the ti4' villains and went slowlyQnck toflhe house. He listened carefully when he went through the halls to his room. All was quiet . . . tbe Ifind music of the panaSi could nt heard in the distance. That night the dogs slept In the boy's room (he built a tent house for them out of a plaid shawl draped over two chairs). They were VERY quiet and VERY good. When the boy's father came in to tell him "goodjjjjght," two pairs of soft brown eyes peeked from under the tent fringe. They were watching two dusty military boots and wondering how TI-Qf'D taste!
