Now the sheep knew perfectly well that they mustnt wander off into the road, but must go back to their pas- -' ture, for Rowdy would chase them back if they didnt go, and when he chased them he got so excited that he frightened them quite a little bit So back they hurried, and Rowdy went to sleep by the farmhouse. Pretty soon he stretched, yawned and got Its milking time, he said to up. himself. He went over toward the Farmer, who was working in the barn. He rubbed his cold nose against the Farmers hand and tried to say: Master, its milking time." The Farmer was quite busy and at first he barely noticed the dog except to give him a put. Finally the Farmer understood. Oh, You always remember. yes, Rowdy How stupid of me to have forgotton. Right, Rowdy I The Cows ! For whenever he said that, then Rowdy knew it was time for him to bring in the cows. Off went Rowdy with a gallop. Up the side of a hill, where all the Cows were eating nice long grass. Bow-wobow-womilking time, Cows, his barks meant, and the Cows understood, for off they went down the hllL 1 Straight into the barn where their stalls were. Rowdy took them. Then, when they were all ready to be milked, he went outside the barn and lay in some long grass there. A nice little sleep he had. And Just as the very last Cow was being- - milked up he Jumped. For it was time to take them back again. Up the hill once more he led them. Nobody had to go along to see if he got them all back safely, for Rowdy did his work thoroughly. When he came back to the farmhouse there was his bowl of fresh milk awaiting Mm. And every morning and every afternoon Rowdy brought the Cows down from the Pasture and back again he led them. One day, when Rowdy came down to the barn, one of the Cows seemed to a mile or two of and principally in of Mustapha Superieur, are many gardens old and new grouped upon the hillside nnd mostly. facing the north, whence they derive the coolness of the breezes wafted across the sea. The climate is admirably suited to the majority of what are generally classified as plants, and there seems to be no limit to the fine effects of plant grouping that may be produced. Here in former days the wealthier Moors had their villas, setting out their garden courtft and terraces upon the rising ground, and forcing every spring to deliver Its precious fluid to the thirsty land. The want of water Is a great natural difficulty of the town, and Indeed of the whole province, and the Moors have elaborated their system of irrigation principally by means of aqueducts, some of which are of very ancient construction. The Moorish country house is always placed upon an admirably chosen site, Its high walls forming an effective screen from indiscreet eyes, writes H. Inigo Trlggs in Country Life. Few flowers are cultivated in its gardens, and those that find a place are chosen for their bright color and the sweetness of their scent roses, lilies, Jasmine, violets, pinks and geraniums. Once planted, they are allowed to romp over trellis and pergola without restraint Flat terraced roofs, small courts sum up windows and walled-ithe features of every house, and there Is complete irregularity both in the arrangement of the rooms and in their shape. Except by accident no two lines are ever parallel, the shape of the house being decided by the contour of the site, whatever that may be. The only effort at regularity is to give to the central court a form somewhat approaching a square. These Interior courts are real gardens In the Sense of being delightful retreats where the glare and heat of the day are tempered by the overspreading trellis of greenery into a soft mysterious light and pervading freshness. The architecture is characteristic of the race, elegant rather than grand; suggesting a delicate and graceful taste and a disposition to indolent enjoyment The planning of the houses seems to derive more from Roman The former than Byzantine origins. gave the open courts, the latter some Df the forms of decoration used In the treatment of floor and wall surfaces. WITHIN Said tho Cow. miing, and Rowdy was very nervous and behaving In a very strange manner. Where la the missing Cow? asked, be I - the Farmer. Come with me," Rowdys eyes seemed to say. So off went the Farmer with Rowdy. Lead the way, Rowdy, he said. And Rowdy led him back up the MIL Still the Farmer didnt see the missing Cow. Where Is she? he asked Rowdy. Rowdys only answer was to walk straight on a .little ahead of the , Farmer. Just at the end of the Pasture were some woods, and sitting down by the side of a tree was the Cow. She was moaning 'and trying to lick her foot. Then the Farmer knew why Rowdy had left the Cow behind and had not made her try to limp on with the others. Oh,! said the Farmer, Its a horrid thorn in your foot said the Cow. And Moo, moo, Rowdy went sniffing around to explain to the Farmer that the Cow needed help. I understand. Rowdy, my boy," said the Farmer, and then Rowdy sat down and watched. The Farmer took the Cow's foot and gently, ever so gently, he pulled the horrid thorn out It had stuck quite for in, and oh, how It had hurt the Cowl N Youre all right now," said. the Farmer. Up you get" The Cow got up rather slowly. Then she stepped onrthe foot which already felt so differently I And to her delight she found her foot was all, all well. Come along, barked Rowdy. And the Cow ran as fast as her great big body would let her, after Rowdy. The Farifler followed along, saying: 'flood Rowdy, my fine Rowdy.

The fountain court is extended a short distance to form a terrace overlooking the Orangery and the azure sea beyond. A square pool slightly raised above the pavement contains a massive circular fountain with its murmur of falling water. Beautiful DJenan-el-Muft- l. in. Mustapha Superieur, the residence of Mrs. E. W. Arthur, was built between the years Pasha, who by was later recalled to Constantinople and became bey of Cyprus. The present .owner has succeeded In restoring the best characteristics of the Moorish architecture in a most praiseworthy manner, and the gardens are maintained In a state of perfection which is the final charm of all good gardens. The house is built upon a hillside, and the ground is therefore laid out !n terraces connected by quaint little stairways lined with old tiles. It is n garden at perhaps the Mustapha, for It Is upon a larger scale than most of the others. The order In which it has been kept and the careful attention it has received for many years render it most attractive. From the house we pass beneath the guardroom and find ourselves in the fountain court paved with tiles, and cloistered on all sides with delicate spiral shafts of exquisite molding, wMch support a light arcade of pointed arches. The walls are richly encrusted with Tunisian tiles of very fine Ceslgn representing an arcade supported on columns with conventional vases DJenan-el-Muft- t, 1590-169- 3 HadJ-Chab- best-know- an El Bardo is another example of a well-restor- ed Moorish house. It la ap- proached from the carriage drive by a broad flight of black marble steps with risers" in blue and green tiles. Entering through an archway beneath a whitewashed mirador we find ourselves in an Irregularly shaped court surrounded by oblong reception rooms, each provided with an open arcade with horseshoe arches and slender columns, single and in groups of two and three. In Arab houses such rooms are known as the Mak ad. They are usually placed on the south side of the court so as to. face the north, and were possibly originally derived from the arcades surrounding the courts of the mosque. They are frequently to be met with In Cairo, where they are often placed on the first floor in imitation of the belvederes or open galleries over the or. public fountains. At El Bardo the largest of the three apartments overlooking the court is a sort of summer salon with a central marble fountain; cushioned seats on three sides form a divan. Other examples we have seen have little open channels of running water freely circulating through the apartment, as at the Alhambra and the Alcazar at Seville. Purple bougainvillea is trained over the lattice covering the windows, and the sun, shining through the masses of flowers, sheds a soothing light into the apartment At the back of the reception halls is a delicious little Koubah, divan ed on all sides and with a mysterious pierced metal lamp hanging from the ceiling. The raised flower beds are bordered by low walls of gaily colored tiling, and the whole court is paved in black and white marble squares. The quaint old coffee kitchen is arranged in a corner of the courtyard. It has been conscientiously restored,' and its rows of shining pots are arranged on a kind of sideboard with tiled sides. Here are the pestle and mortar for pulverizing the berries, and quaint.

Four windows overlook the garden at the east end of the court, and above the arched entrance gate Is the room where the guard was placed to watch the ladles' of the harem. Any absence of color in the plant life is more than compensated for by the richly tiled wall surfaces. A central fountain in an octagonal pool reflects the blue sky, and a large water tank beyond forms an Ideal home for the graceful feathery papyrus. High .white walls are clothed with a variety of bougainvillea, plumbago and cluster roses, and the tall, battered looking bananas, the latanla, phoenix and other palms preserve all the truly eastern features of a garden of the Arabian Nights.
