QENUINE COURTESY. t-.i.ucti of True Hreedlns; In th Him liter Kauk of Lira. It In not always In court circles or iinoflif the aristocracy of a laud tliat tlia trui-st courtesy ia found. In the hum bler rank of Hfo are often seen in gUince of true breeding that would put wtbe blush tome of our upper Bvo hun dred. NVarly Hfty years ago, wheuJulin j Crittenden, the distinguished Senator from Kentucky, was stumping that State (or tuo I'leutlon of his friond, Henry Clay, to the l'rcsiiloncy, be stayed for a few day 'n Danville, a town In the Blue Crass reffion. 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 the country. 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 do?" "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 Senator said: 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 my roof." 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 part!" "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."

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..

But I never know the blto of a rale old diamon' back, such as i llo in the moist ground nigh the bay j heads, cured 'cept onct. A negro hund I was cuttin' cano in the cane fields around St Cloud, an' was bit in the ankle by one. Tho nearest doctor was tor Kissimmee, six miles, an' it tuk two hours tew bring him thar. By that time tho man's leg was swelled ter twice Us nateral sizo, an' the swollen was cieepin' up bis body. Doc 'lowed there was no time to lose. Uo'd brought erlongcr sum kind o' euro for snako bites, an' be used it. Directions said givo a teaspoonful an' no moah. He guv' a teaspoonful an' the swellin' stop ped. Then, as tho man was nigh dead, he guv' 'im toother, an' the swellin' he gun to go down; ho guv' 'im a third, an' next morning tho nlggor was well.

"Why," said I, "that's identical with the hoop-snake of Georgia. One of them rolled for a Major up there the other day, struck at hlra and missed, and his sting went so far into a gum tree that he could not draw it out, and so hung thero until be died." The Cracker looked at me curiously. "Wasl, stranger, I'll 'low ye tuk the words right out ov my mouth.

At this point the Cracker betook him self off on bis hunt, and we strolled back to the inn, keeping a bright look out for the "diamon' back," which might be following in the wake of the pilot killed that morning.

AN ANCIENT STRONGHOLD. Windsor (a. He, Quern Victoria's FararIM Dwelling Place. 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 Wyatville. The royal forest of Wind sor in 1700 contained some 00,000 acres. Since then, however, it has been much reduced in size, although It still ranks as ono of tlie finest In the kingdom, and contains somo oak trees of great ageand also. Chicago Inter Ocean. WORKING TO ADVANTAGE. Ijilior Can lid Lightened by Mixing It Willi Itralnt. 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 horse. 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 .anner all great inventions have been brought about by men who mix braini with their work.
