gUince of true breeding that would put

from Kentucky, was stumping that State

few day 'n Danville, a town In the Blue
The Whigs from near and far were
gathered In force In tho little oity, and
the distinguished men of tho neighbor
hood, together with these visitors, were
invited to a "big dinner" at the house
of .Mr. S , a well-to-do farmer and
stanch Whig, who lived a milo or two in
For d:i.vs tho available force of the
farm had been so employed in preparing
for the great occasion, which was ap
pointed for Thursday, that the family
were put on somewhat short commons.
On Wednesday tho Senator started
out fro'" tho house, where ho was stay
jnjr, for a morning walk. Absorbed in
thought on tho political situation, he
was not aware how the time passed un
til, glancing up to tho sky, ho saw by
the nun that It was uoon.
"Why," ho said to himself, "I must
hasten, or I shall be too late for Mr.
g 's dinner!"
, Ho had forgotten that tho dinner was
appointed for tho next day. Taking a
short cut throiich the woods, ho soon
arrived at tho farm-house, lie noticed
an unusual commotion in tho yard, where
the slaughter of turkeys was engaging
tho attention of a crowd of little darkies,
and thinking he must be late, ho has
tenod his steps.
llr. and Mrs. S wore standing on
tho front porch, watching the turkles
and tho darkios, when Mr. Crittenden
approached. Airs. 8 understood the
situation at once.
"llless my heart, husband," she said,
"yomler's Senator Crittenden! He's com
ing to dinner, sure's the world! lie
thinks it's to-morrow. What shall we
"Invite him in," said the old farmer,
"and givo him tho best we have."
At that moment the dinner-horn
sounded, and the visitor reached the
steps. Mr. S advanced to moot him,
but before ho could utter a word, the
I hopo I havo not kept your dinner
waiting, Mr. S . I was walking in
the woods, and did not notice the hour."
"Indeed, no," was tho Instant reply.
"It is only just ready. Walk in, slr!"
walk In! I am glad to" see you under
He took his visitor's hand heartily,
Introduced him to his wife, and then
led tho way Into the dining-room. In
the room were already gathered his
three stalwart sons, and smoking on tho
board were the traditional hog and
hominy, with the potatoes and corn
bread of Kentucky farm-life.
The homely dishes wore passed to the
Washington Senator, while the talk ran
upon tho coming election, the crops and
the partridges with which the hemp
fields abounded. Sonator Crittenden was
proverbially an absent-minded man, and
the fact that ho was the only guest did
not occur to him. On the contrary, be
thoroughly enjoyod his dinner, and do
lighted tho heart of his hostess by toll-
'ii linn thof Imn nnvn nnnoa 4 'i a fail 4naf
as his mother's used to do when he was
a boy in Woodford County.
After dinner, and an hour's conversa
tion over cob pipes on the front porch,
he arose to tuko his leave. As be shook
hands at parting, Mr. S said:
"Don't forgot, Senator, that you are
to come and dine with me to-morrow."
"To-nierrow!" echoed his visitor, cov
ered with confusion. "Bless my soul,
sir, 1 thought it was to-day, and of
course, you was not expecting any one
to-day! What a stupid blunder on my
"Not at all," was the courteous an
swer. "It has only given us two pleas
ures Instead of one, and I only wish it
might occur often." r
The next day forty gentlemen were
entertained at the old farm-house in
princely. If seral-barbarlc, stylo, but tho
Senator doclarod that he enjoyed none
of it as he had done the simplicity of
the day before. '
"And, sir," he said, telling the story
to a friend in Washington, "1 have
never seen any whore in any court cir
cle moro case, more self-possession or
more true courtosy, than was shown by
that old farmer and his family. They
apologized for nothing; there was never
an intimation that I was unwelcome, or
even unlooked for, or that any thing
was amiss. It was the height of good
breeding. I was proud of my people."
Homely Women of Portngal.
Tho I'ortuguese men are rather below
the medium height, of olive complexion,
and have brilliant black eyes. For the
most part they are vory handsome The
women, on the contrary, aro excessively
homely, but dross in vory good taste.
Both gentlemen an, ladies copy the
l'arisian fashions. Te prettiest women
are the fisher maids, who go about the
streets barefooted with their baskets of
fish on their heads, after the fashion of
the Egyptian women with their pitehers
of water.. Some of these girls are re
markably pretty, and, strange to say,
their feet are small and delicate look

back to the inn, keeping a bright look
out for the "diamon' back," which might
be following in the wake of the pilot

AN ANCIENT STRONGHOLD.
Windsor (a. He, Quern Victoria's FararIM
W'indsor Castle Is one of the most an
olent of the magnificent atrongholds in
Great Britain. It Is known that Wil
liam the Conqueror found It a famous
place, the favorite seat of the Saxon
kings. Tho Norman removed the rudo
wooden enclosure and constructed a
stone circuit wall; the first completo
round tower was built In ViVi by Henry
III., and Edward III. In 18U remodeled
and reconstructed It on a much greater
scale, to alTord an amtembly place for
the Knights of the Garter, an order
which ho hud just established. The
legends had it that it was on the sum
mit of that circular mound that King
Arthur was accustomed to meet with bis
Knights of tho Bound Table. Addi
tions have been made by various sover
eigns to this famous Round Tower, the
later Improvements being by Sir Jollrey
Wyatville, the court architect In the
reign of George IV. The chapel cloister
built by Henry III. remains, as was an
other, erected by the sumo monarch,
and dedicated to Edward the Confessor,
is now called the Albert Memorial
Chapel. Henry VII., In 1501 and sub
sequently, did much to Improvo the
chapels of the great structure The
chapel of St George is said to rank next
to Westminster Abbey as a royal mau
soleum. This chapel is a splendid speci
men of Gothic architecture, and there the
marringo ceremony of tho Prince of
Wales and the l'rincess Alexandra was
performed with great magnificence. In
regard to tho ceremony it was said that
"the altar was arrayed with its gold
communion plate in massive rows, and
the ceremony performed by a number of
prelates who mado tho service most Im
pressive. Tho musical portion of the
ceremony was sweetly rendered by Mine.
Jenny Lind Goldsmldt who, with oth
ers, offered up the bymn of praise on
this great day. A picture of
the grand eeremonv was painted by Mr.
Frith, for a copyright of which a higher
price has been olfered than has ever
been offered for any other picture."
Among those burled there are Henry
VIII. and Lady June Seymour, George
III. and his Queen, William IV. and his
Queen, Charles I. and the Princess Char
lotte. The vault in which tho remains
of these lie is at the eastern end of the
chapel. It is in this chapel where the
installation of the Knights of the Gar
ter takes place. Tho castlo, which has
been ono of tho favorite floats of the
rulers of Great Britain for eight centu
ries, Is In Its interior rich in decorations
and works of art embracing pictures,
statuary and bronzes. The principal
gallery in which these are shown is over
600 feet In length. The private apart
ments of tho Queen wero for the most
part rebuilt or remodeled by Sir Jeffrey

WORKING TO ADVANTAGE.
Ijilior Can lid Lightened by Mixing It
Every man can not do the higher
grades of mental labor, and tho hard
mental tasks of the world must be per
formed by somobody.
Men and women whose lot has been
cast among the hard manual laborors of
the world should remember that thoir
tasks can bo immeasurably lightened by
mixing them with thought Study out
now and easlor methods of performing
the old tasks. Plan, contrive and ex
periment Thought applied to labor
makes your work nn art It leads, too,
to more expeditious methods.
Forty years ago, every farmer rakod
his hay with a small hand-rake, poking
it together much as ho drew up the soil
with a hoe around a bill of potatoes.
Some one, who mixed brains with his
work, got a theory In his head that the
hay oould bo gathered together easier
with a large rake dragged behind the
worker on the ground. Hence a bigger
rake was suggested, which performed
tho work nearly four times as fast as the
old method. It did the work so easily
that the rake was called a "loafer."
Soon it was suggested to somebody,
who mixed brains with his work and
mado an art of labor, that if a man could
drag a big rake to advantage, a horse
could drag a bigger ono. In this way
tho first horse rake was evolved. A
man walked behind and managed the
rake, and a boy rode and guided the
But there was still further opportuni
ty for the man who mixed brains with
his work to lighten bis task, and conse
quently make his work still more pleas
ant. Why not dispense with the boy,
he reasoned, and why should I have this
laborious trouble of walking around be
hind the horse and turning over the
rake? I will put this thing on wheels,'
fasten a seat astride the wheels, and
ride about my field and take my ease,
and, at tbo same time, rake my hay.
It was in this way that the modern
horse-rake - as evolved. In the same

brought about by men who mix braini
