That" Winter Night. 11Y r.OIJKrt CHAPTER IV—CONTINUED.- Trembling with emotion, ho kissed the precious'token, and thrust it into Ills breast; then, lifting tho dog, ho male his way again to tho chateau. Ho reached it unmolested; but instead of entering, he carried his burden straight to the garden, and buried it , near the sun-dial, as Blanche had di- Tectecl. Then he went to tho house, Jind was shown straight to tho drawing-room, whore Blanche was sitting. "Ah! I am glad you have returned," said Blanche. "Did you hear anything more?" . "Nothing, mademoiselle; all is quiet now. I have buried Gaston; and," he added, beneath his breath, "I should • .liko. to put a bullet through the heart '.*>£• the mau who killed him!" "CHAPTER V. The Prisoner. ISext day Blanche hoard full particulars of the events which had taken place the previous evening.' It turned out that the inhabitants of the village, •while sunning thomsslves at the house-door that afternoon, and discussing- tho position of affairs, had suddenly boon startled by the appearance of six mounted Uhlans, in full •warlike array, riding quietly up the main street. Almost before any one could recover from tho surprise of their appearance, thdy had gone— A r anished along the high-road leading inland. Then began the cry and clamor: l>ells were .rung', gendarmes rushed to :aud fro; oven the fishermen armed themselves with whatever weapons they could procure; while fearful mothers claspe:! their children, and timid- maidens Hocked into the church to pray. Later on, a party of Franc Tireurs appeared and bivouacked in tlie village, drinking- freely at the ex- .pence of the peasantry, and vowing dire vengeance ag-ainst the enemy. Thus far, however, them had been no '[fighting; and the farmer of St. Leon, riding down-into tho market place, informed the authorities that the Uhlans, after entering his farm-yard and seizing a quantity of forage and live-stock, had actually paid for what they had taken-^the market-price too —in coin of the realm! Blanche remained with old Hubert and the gardener' in the: chateau, phe front door was barricaded, the [window-shutters carefully closed, •everything- made secure against a pos- .sibl'.v attack from the enemy. 1 About midday sounds of heavy firing- iwere'heard from tho far distance, but lasted only for a very short time. A {little'later, as Blanche sat at the win- clow of tho drawing-room, looking out 'on the waning- woods, she saw a body of ritlomon in tho French uniform approaching- up the avenue, They Jialted and formed into groups under the terrace, and presently old Hubert [showed in two gentlemen—one a (young officer whom Blanche had• never- seen before; the other a middle-aged man, also in uniform, whom she recognized as Dr. Huet, a surgeon in the French army, and an old friend of her father's. They salutod hor respectfully, and informed her that they had passed that way on tho lookout for skirmishers of the enemy, who wore [reported as having been seen in the neighboring woods, i "They are daring rascals," observed jthe doctor, "especially those Uhlans. jHubert tells me, mademoiselle that (you yourself' had an adventure with (them the'other evening," Blanche repeated her story, to tho astonishment of her hearers, "An4 they did not otherwise molest wouV" exclaimed the young officer, l«<Ah! mademoiselle, you wore for tun- late.

They wheeled ro\tnrl, formed and went away at a trot ihtd the woods.- Toward afternoon tho sharp crack of rifles was heard ffom the direction of the village. It Was very straggling' ahd. soon c 1 eased. About an hour latei 8 it began again, coining this time much nearer, till it.filled tlie Woods immediately surrounding the house. Then Blanche heard, baside the sound of firihg, tlie loud voices of men, ahd peeping out, saw figures coming and going, guns in hand, amottg 'the dis-* tant trees. Presently she saw one of the farm laborers running bareheaded toward tho chateaUj uhe door of which opened to receive him. A minute later Hubert ran into tho room. "Victory, mademoiselle!" ho cried. "OUr bravo fellows have surprised a body of the enemy's cavalry, and peppered them from the woods. They have had their belly full. I warrant you! Many of them are dono for, and the rest are scampering'a way toward Havre. But what are you doing?" he added nervously. "For heaven's sake, come away from the window!" Without heeding his protestations, Blanche unclosed the windows which opened to tho ground, threw back the shutters, and stepped out upon.,thc terrace. Tho sounds of firing had grown fainter, and she could see through an opening in the trees, a group of men gathered together about a quarter of a mile away. "Mademoiselle, for heaven's sake!" cried the old man, still remaining in tho shelter of tho room. "Hubert, go and see what has happened! Hun quickly and bring mo word!" "Go out into the woods!" cried Hubert, trembling like a leaf. "Madem- oisollle,, tny place'is here. I will not desert you, mademoiselle, so long its you need protection." "But it is all over now, as .you say; surely you are not afraid to venture i"' "No, mademoiselle,. I am not afraid, I—I-ain- a Frenchman, and incapable of fear; but I am unarmed—and you, mademoiselle, aro' helpless. With your permission, I will remain with you." Scarcely heeding what he said, Blanche, continued to gaao steadily at the group of men in tho distance. She saw that it was composed partly of soldiers in uniform, partly of peasants in blouses; but some of the latter carried arms like tho soldiers. Presently there.- was a movement among thorn, and three or four began walking in the direction of tho chateau; and as they came nearer, Blanche recognized among thorn tho young officer who, had visited her during the afternoon. Without hesitation-she crossed-'the terrace and de : sconded the flight of stone steps in front of the chateau. Hubert, the picture of misery, followed clOso bo- hind her. She then crossed tho flowergardch and met the officer as he emerged from tho plantations. "It is all ovor, mademoiselle!" ho cried, smiling, "Wo have beaten them!" "Was it a battle, monsieur?" asked Blanche, in her simplicity. "Nay, mademoiselle, only a littlo •skirmish. We found a party of Uhlans reconnoitering in the outskirts of Grandpre, and immediately attacked them. To do the villains justice, they fought bravely; but wo far excelled them in numbers, and, moreover, we had tho shelter of the woods, from .which we were able to pick them oft' like crows." "Howhorrible!" murmured Blanche. "Horrible, mademoiselle?" cried Hubart. "It is-splendid! Is it not, monsieur?'' "Silence, Hubert! said the girl, angrily; then, again addressing tho officer, she continued,"! hops, monsieur, that there has not been much bloodshed?" "Very little, i assure you. Scarcely a man has fallen on our side, though several'have received slight wounds, to which Doctor Huet is now busily attending. With the enemy it is different; they arc almost exterminated. One of their officers is dead; tlie other is lying yonder, sharply wounded." Ho pointed as ho spoke, and Blanche saw the man approaching, hoaded by D/. Huet, and carrying in their midst what looked liko a rude litter. They came on rapidly; and as they did so, she advanced to moot thorn, '•My dear mademoiselle!" cried tho doctor, as they came faco to face, "what are you doing- hero? Pray tako my advice, and return to Ilic chateau." "But, doctor, I have heard," Blanche cried, --sonic ono is woundod —dying!" *'Only one of the onoiny," answered tho doctor, dryly. "I have bound up his wound as well as possible." "Where aro you taking- him?" "To 0119 of your outhouses. It is freezing hard,/ and we could not lot him die on the cold ground," Scarcely knowing- what sho did, and paying no heed to tho doctor's interposition, Blanche pushed quickly by him, and approaching- the group of soldiers, saw in their midst several country fellp\vs in blouses, ciurying- tho prisoner. He lay upon a rude Utter, pr stretcher, hurriedly eoj}- struoted out of u portion of u wooden fonoe, AS she d.rew near, they placed him pn the grass and drew uside.

As she bent over him his ey'es Opened* aftd with a faint Smile, he I'ecoe-hized her. As she drew back nervously, tho crowd surrounding her uttered an angry jnurmuf; fists were clinched) arms brandished, ahd angry looks' leveled at the wounded man. Houzel, the gamekedpor, who was among their number, looked down with a savage scowl into the German's face. "It is the butchering rogue Who killed your dog,Mademoiselle Blanche!" he said between his set teeth. "Go back to the house, and leave him to us." "No, no!" cried Blanche. "It was not he; it was the other. Doctor Huet, you will protect him?" "Stand back, all of you!" said tho doctor, in a tono of 'command. "The lady is right; ho is a prisoner of war, and shall bo protected." Then, turning to Blanche, ho added, "The fellow must take his chance. There is fighting down yonder* and we aro wanted." "Is he much hurt?" asked Blanche, anxiously. "His arm is broken, and ho has some flesh-wounds. I have done all I can. Houzol, I leavo him to you. Get him into one of the outhouses; it is bad for him to bo out herd in the cold air." "Stay!" cried Blanche. "Oh, Doctor Huet, I—I know him!" "Know him, mademoiselle?" "Ho is one of the two officers I saw tho other night, and he spoke to me very kindly. I am so sorry for him! Do you think that he will die?" Dio? of course not. These Uhlans take a deal of killing. Besides, onfe does not dio of n shot in the arm, aucl his flosh wounds aro slight. With watching and a little careful nursing ho would bo right enough. But corbleu! in times like these he must tako his, chance. After all, it is the fortune of war." Here tho rapid roll of tho drum was hoard in the distance. Tho young officer came up quickly. "Do you hear that, Huot? Something is . going- to happen down yon- dor. We must hasten." "Very well," said Huot. "I will see this fellow placed in somo sort of shelter, and then will follow you." Meantime, Blancho-had boon undergoing- a strong- internal strug-g-lo. Divided between her pity for the wounded man and her dread of him as one of the invaders of her country, she knew not whak to say or do. Then she remembered her father's gentle warning, so full of Christian charity and sympathy, and illustrated so tenderly by tho very words of tho man who lay wounded beforo her: "I should bo sorry if any ovil came to you; over there ia Germany I have a dear sister of my own." With full heart and dim eyos,-'sho looked ag-ain at the unfortunate officer. He lay .in the same position, with his eyos fixed on her. Ah, GodJ if it had been her own dear father who was lying thus, helpless, surrounded by strangers! Such a thing might have been—mig-ht stiU be—and then—She turned to the men, wh< were moving- past her with their bur- don. "Carry him. into tho chateau!" shq cried. "To the chateau, mademoiselle!" repeated Houzel, savagely. "My lady, are you mad?" said Hubert, plucking at her sleeve—"a monstrous German!" "Silence. Hubert! and help them ta bear him in. Doctor Huot, you know my dear father. Even now, some, where afar oil', ' he may ba in trouble—wounded perchance, and a prisoner, with no loving- daughter near to watch and tend him. For his sake I'll shelter this poor gentleman.' 1 [TO BK CONTINUED.] A School of Sociology.

F. \Viltiams of Kentueky writes asking information on the Cultivation of broom corn. The Farmers' Review will give a few of the leading principles involved In the culture, but would like to hear,from any of its readers engaged in this line. Tllfi TLAftT. The plant itself is a variety of sorghum and Was formerly found only In the East Indies. There it is grown both for forage and the' making of brooms, for which object it is the most useful. Its introduction into the United States is said to have been due to the restless investigations of Dr. Franklin. On an imported whisk broom ho found a little seed and "wanted to know" if it would grow. It did grow, and produced a plant. He took the seed from that plant and planting them got more plants. That Was the beginning. Now the raising of broom corn and making of brooms is an important branch of our economy. For a long time this crop was cultivated only in New England. Later it spread to the western states, where the soil seems well fitted for it. The. average yield is put at about 600 pounds per acre. PKEI'AnATIOJi OP SOU.. Soil is an important factor, and that soil best adapted to Indian corn will , as la- dafif Sf " (Ja tfcg tftfiSF hlisd tfefs frot to sew tos fltafif ybHtig plants will thsa 6f efreTcftjw'cUiig 4 aB<l be fbrs belfig tnififled titt ef s pat JfoM fifteen 1 to twTSMy Befeds Itt the hill, hatitfg the* 4ttit6 well se> arated ev6& then.

The time fof platiting 1 is about the same as Indian corn, sometimes a little latef, at least not till the soil is warm and dry. lla- 1 chitte planting: is quite genefally resorted to, though sotne even now plant by hand. If tho area is small there may be little objection to this method. Cover seed to depth of otto inch, unless the soil is Unusually light and dry, in which case It should be planted deeper. Put .in the seed as soon as the ground is ready, that the moisture in the newly turned soil may hasten germination. It is claimed that thick planting produces.the finest and toughest brush. Cultivators »,lso express a preference for old soil that has been a long time in broom corn crops. CULTIVATION. Cultivate at first aa soon as the plants are Up. This will loosen the soil and check the growth of weeds.' Frequent cultivation at this time is advocated, as the stirring helps accelerate the growth of the plants, and sets back the weeds. The latter must not get the upper hand even for a.lit- da biddy wm leavelfe 8feif pgf eefil ' ' If H6BS, 16 laf get and wofffis, she Mast}] a Week, J5<3«*6 gipfet .'*!rt i ,''lii»*%* t ''?

It should be well drained and mellow, and not so wet as to siibject it to early frosts in the fall or late frosts in the spring. Wet, soggy lands will not do, Even if the upper soil is right the subsoil may be so hard and retentive of water that it will need draining to do the work needed of it. Low lands along rivers are well adapted for the crop, provided they slope enough toal- low of good drainage. Some of these lands with a gravel subsoil have a natural drainage. But we do not wish to indicate that the crop is very particular as to the kindof soil allotted to it. It will, generally speaking, grow on land,where Indian corn will grow, MANURING. It goes without saying that on most lands this crop should be manured. Best results can not be obtained without giving the plant all the food it can utilize, The most available manure- is that raised on the farm, and when a farmer runs short of this ' kind of fertiliser he should endeavor to keep more stock, if only to give him a cheap fertiliser. The manures made in the barn yard, pig sty and sheep pen should be well rotted, and if possible the weed seeds should be absent, for of course the land peeds to be kept free from weeds for this as well as other crops. Some use commercial fertilizers, such as guano, •\vhile ashes, plaster and lime are applied in some cases where the land is deficient in calcareous matter, But it should be remembered that lime and plaster are not manures in themselves, and are only to be used in certain cases. Manure ia generally applied broadcast,and sometimes an additional amount is put in the hills or drills. tie season. The plants should be allowed to get a growth of four or five inches before being thinned. In drill culture the stalks sliould be left three or four inches apart. The work of thinning is very hard, but it is a work that gives good results, It should never be planted near sorghum or Chinese sugar cane, if the seed is to be preserved, as the varieties will mix. HARVESTING. Time of harvesting will depend on the object—brush or seed. Of course, if seed is desired, harvest must be delayed till the seed has matured, Otherwise the work may begin as soon as the blossoms begin to fall, The quality of the brush is better at this period than later. Its color will be greenish, and the fiber will be tough. Harvest should always be before frost comes. CUBING. When only small ^quantities are grown, broom corn may be cured in barns or shed lofts, where it is spread out thinly, not exposed to rain or moisture. Where large quantities are produced special buildings are necessary, where the crop may be spread out thin on numerous racks. The racks should be from eight to ten inches apart, so as to allow a free circulation of air- Two methods of cultivating are in vogue, in hills and drills. Probably neither has mncli advant&gfe over the other. Those that advocate hills say it> is easier to keep the fields clean, as the cultivator can be run both ways, Tfee. vows are usually from three and one half to f pur .feet apart, and whew the planting is in hills, they are two a»d pne ,lwvlf .01? tliroe feet apart, buttWs Depends mupu oa \hv variety grown, ( J?Jjis cj.uiMi9n.ean not be settled by jpYAi^Vta rule, ^everything 'fle^f?; .pl^tetof^^^&wih ^nnca/iiievnf , • In.-irnlMn.TtRft s'ftT s&ijomfi r*!" 1 ^ OF SWAMPS,—What is called "peat" in Europe, and "muck" in America, is the result of an imperfect decomposition of vegetable matter, such as marsh plants, leaves, sticks, roots, ete,,that have been cpve/ed of the time with stagnant wa.ter, at the north we find such mucky deposits yuite common.
