Spring Lamb and Mint Sauce
March is the month for spring lamb
just as April is the time t'or early vio
lets and other sorts of spring beauties.
Mint sauce is always mentioned in
the same sentence with lamb ami yet
many cooks do not know how to serve
the two articles in combination. Other
things, like new potatoes, asparagus,
green peas and spinach are more fre
quently eaten with this meat. An ex
cellent recipe for making mint sauce is
this one:
Chop the spearmint very fine and add
enough vinegar to cover it and sugar
to suit your taste. Let this stand
tightlv covered for an hour or longer
and serve with the meat. The mint
must be washed through many waters
to remove all the sand or dust that
flings and then all the coarse fibres and
stems must be discarded.
Spring lamb is small so that the cuts
are not like those of mutton but art
"halves" or quarters. The fore-quarter
is the more choice. Lamb chops are
seldom from spring lamb but from small
or young sheep.
The finest chops are at least two
Inches in thickness; if you have them
cut thinner you cannot cook them to
best advantage. The only way in which
tbey should be cooked is by broiling.
The heat should be high at first, and
may be reduced after they arc started

Boiled leg of lamb is delicious eat
ing. The time required for cooking
this depends on the size of the cut. It
is usually served with parsley sftuce or
with spinach.
A lamb dish that is .justly popular is
ispinach and lamb cutlets. The cutlets
'are taken from the tied: and must be
well trimmed. Kgg and bread them
and fry in deep fat. Steam the spinach
or boil it and drain very well and use
it to garnish the meat.
Lamb pie seems to be the natural
ending of a left-over bit of lamb or

A Serious Evtnt.
Le Comte de Sabron, ia the undress
uniform of captain in the Cavalry,
eat smoking and thinking.
What is the use of being thirty years
old with the brevet of captain and
much distinction of family if you are
a poor man—in short, what is the good
of anything if you are alone in the
world and no one cares what becomes
of you?
He rang his bell, and when his
ordonnance appeared, said sharply:
"Que diable is the noise in the sta
ble, Brunet? Don't yon know that
when I smoke at this hour all Taras
con must be kept utterly silent?"
Tarascon is never silent. No French
meridional town is, especially in the
warm sunlight of a glorious May day.
"The noise, mon Capitatno," said
Brunet, "is rather melancholy."
"Melancholy!" exclaimed the young
officer. "It's infernal. Stop it at once."
The ordonnance held his kepi in his
' hand. He had a round good-natured
1 face and kind gray eyes that wert
j used to twinkle at his master's humot
I and caprices.
"I beg pardon, mon Capitaine. but ;
a very serious event is taking place." j
"It will be more serious yet, Brunet,
if you don't keep things quiet."
"I am sorry to tell, mon Capitaine, j
that Michette has just died."
"Michette!" exclaimed the master.
"What relation is she of yours, Bru- ,
"Ah, mon Capitaine," grinned the or
donnance, "relation! None! It is the !
little terrier that Monsieur le Capi
| taine may have remarked now and
| then in the garden."
Sabron nodded and took his cigarette
I out of his mouth as though in respect
for the deceased.
"Ah, yes," he said, "that melancholy
little dog! Well, Brunet!"
"She has just breathed her last,
! mon Capitaine, end she is leaving be* !
I hind her rather a large family."
I "I am not surprised," said the officer. •
"There are six.'' vouchsafed Brn
. net. "of which, if mon Captaine is
j willing, I should like to keep one."
! "Nonsense," said Sabron, "on no ac- '
count. You know perfectly well, Bru- !
net. that I don't surround myself with
i things that can make me suffer. I
I have not kept a dog in ten years. I
j try not to care about my horses even,
j Everything to which I attach myself
dies or causes me regret and pain. ;
| And I won't have any miserable little
j puppy to complicate existence."
[ "Bien, mon Capitaine," accepted the
i ordonnance tranquilly. "I have given j
| away five. The sixth is in the stable;
if Monsieur le Capitaine would come
! down and look at it . .
Sabron rose, threw his cigarette
I »way and, following across the' garden ;

- %>''!
Sabron Looked at the Letter.
In the bland May light, went into the
stable where Madame Mlchette, a
small wire-haired Irish terrier had
given oirth to a fine family and her
self gone the way of those who do
their duty to a race. In the straw at
his feet Sabron saw a ratlike, unpre
possessing little object, crawling about
feebly in search of warmth and nour
ishment, uttering pitiful little cries.
Its extreme loneliness and helpless
ness touched-the big soldier, who said
curtly to his man:
"Wrap it up, and if you don't know
how to feed it I should not be sur
prised if I could induce it to take a
little warm milk from a quill. At all
events we shall have a try with It.
Fetch it along to my rooms."
And as he retraced his steps, leav
ing bis order to be executed, he
thought to himself: The little beggar
Is not much more alone in the world
than I am! As he said that he re
called a word in the meridional patois:
Pitchoune, which means "poor little
"I shall call It Pitchoune," he
thought, "and we shall see if it can t
do better than its name suggests."
He went slowly back to his rooms
and busied himself at his table with
his correspondence. Among the let
ters was an invitation from the Mar
quise d'Esclignac, an American mar
ried to a Frenchman, and the great
lady of the country thereabouts.
"Will you not," she wrote, "come to
dine with us on Sunday? I have my
niece with me. She would be glad to
•ee a French soldier. She has ex
pressed such a wish. She comes from
a country where soldiers are rare. We
| aine at eigne.
Sabron looked at the letter and Its
fine clear handwriting. Its wording
was less formal than a French Invita
tion Is likely to be, and It gave him
a sense of cordiality. He had seen,
during his rides, the beautiful lines
of the Chateau d'Esclignac. Its tur
rets surely looked upon the Rhone.
There would be a divine view from
the terraces. It would be a pleasure
to go there. He thought more of what
the place.would be than of the people
In It, for he was something of a her
mit, rather a recluse, and very re
He was writing a line of acceptance
when Brunet came in, a tiny bundle in
his hand.
"Put Pitchoune over there in the
sunlight," ordered the officer, "and we
shall see 11 we can bring him up by
Julia Redmond.
He remembered all his life the first
dinner at the Chateau d'Esclignac,
where from the terrace he saw the
Rhone lying under the early moon
light and the shadows falling around
' the castle of good King Rene.
As he passed in, his sword clanking
—for he went in full dress uniform to
dine with the Marquise d'Esclignac—
he saw the picture the two ladies made
in their drawing-room: the marquise
I in a very splendid dress (which he
j never could remember) and her niece,
a young lady from a country who3o
i name it took him long to learn to pro
nounce, in a dress so simple that of
course he never could forget it! He
remembered for a great many years
the fall of the ribbon at her pretty
waist, the bunch of sweet peas at her
girdle, and he always remembered the
face that made the charm of the pic
Their welcome to him was gracious,
i The American girl spoke French with
| an accent that Sabron thought be
-1 wilderingly charming, and he put aside
! some of his reserve and laughed and
talked at his ease. After dinner (this
he remembered with peculiar distinct
i ness) Miss Redmond sar.g for him, and
I although he understood none of the
words of the English ballad, he learned
the melody by heart and it followed
with him when he left. It went with
| him as he crossed the terrace into the
moonlight to mount his horse; it went
home with him; he hummed it, and
when he got up to his room he hummed
it again as he bent over the little roll
of flannel in the corner and fed the
puppy hot milk from a quill.
This was painstaking operation
and required patience and delicacy,
both of which the big man had at hia
finger-tips. The tune of Miss Red
j mond's song did for a lullaby and the
| puppy fell comfortably to sleep while !
! Sabron kept the picture of his eve- j
j ning's outing contentedly in his mind |
! But later he discovered that he was
not so contented, and counted the!
; hours when he might return.
He shortly made a call at the Cha- j
; teau d'Esclignac with the result that j
he had a new picture to add to his col- |
lection. This time it was the picture j
| of a lady alone; the Marquise d'Es i
ciignac doing tapestry. While Sabron i
| found that h» had grown reticent j
again, he listened for another step and
i another voice and heard nothing; but
before he took leave there was a hint j
of a second invitation to dinner.
( The marquise was very handsome j
| that afternoon and wore yet anothei j
bewildering dress. Sabron's simple!
| taste was dazzled. Nevertheless, she
I made a graceful picture, one of beau !
! ty and reflaement, and the young sol-
I dier took it away with him. As his j
horse began to trot, at the end of the
, alley, near the poplars at the lower
| end of the rose terrace he caught a
| glimpse of a white dress (undoubtedly !
i a simpler dress than that worn by i
j Madame d'Esclignac).
A Second Invitation.
"I don't think, mon Capitaine, that It
j is any use," Brunet told his master.
Sabron, in his shirt-sleeves, sat be
j fore a table on which, in a basket, lay j
Mlchette's only surviving puppy. It
was a month old. Sabron already knew i
I how "bright its eyes, were and "now al- !
■ luring its young ways.
"Be still, Brunet," commanded the
officer. "You do not come from the
Bouth or you would be more sanguine. I
Pitchoune has got to live."

feet bad taken him as far as the high
road, and on this day, as It were In
order that he should understand the
smuggle for existence, a bicycle had

youth, and now, according to Brunet,
"there wasn't much use!"
Pitchoune was bandaged around his
hind quarters and his adorabje little
head and forepaws came out of the
handkerchief bandage.
"He won't eat anything from me,
mon Capitaine," said Brunet, and
Sabron ceremoniously opened the pup
py's mouth and thrust down a dose.
Pitchoui e swallowed obediently.
Sabron had just returned from a
long hard day with his troops, and
tired out as he was, he forced himself
to give his attention to Pitchoune. A
second invitation to dinner lay on his
table; he had counted the days until
this night. It seemed too good to be
true, he thought, that another picture
was to add itself to his collection! He

he gave a pathetic yelp which made

"Nonsense," said the young officer
impatiently, drawing on his gloves.

"As for feeding him, mon Capitaine,"
the ordonnance threw up his hands,
"he.will be stiff by the time . . ."
