Portia was nlnctcon, ami a princess

mother handsome and of equable torn
fturainont, hut not titiihtly knowledg
eable which miiy account for the fact
(hat Portia herself, whilo of tho intel
lectually beautiful type, was net
atiperciliousty lovely, ns Is so often
tho case with women similarly gifted.
Sho cotild talk wiih a man without
compelling hitn to foci his own
Igtioiunce, nnil, of course, this
mado her excessively popular
with llio mala portion of tho
coininunity In which she lived ; but,
rarer still, Portia endeared herself to
to) women that plain (fills, despite her
iMiuity, loved to be with her. She
'had a way of making thorn feel that
tier beauty detracted from rather than
cuhanced their plainness, us though
ho khed tho glumour of her person
ality on nit those about her, Just as tho
un sometimes seeks out tho dark cor
tiers of the earth, and makes gloom
iuolf soom the source of light. With
ad Portia was not conscious of her
propossosHing qnalitic, and went her
way through life as simply, as quietly,
nd as sensibly as alio could.
That she should have princes danc
ing attendance upon her by tho sooro
was not surprising; that sho should
liavo hor preferences for certain
pmicos was equally to bo expected ;
that she flionlil liavo at leant two par
ticular princes who wished her to be
theirs was not startling aud vol, son
aiblo a Portia was, whon these gallant
gentlemen mado known their matri
monial hopes to hor, site was startled.
That, I think, was the only com
monplace thing about Portia. ' To bo
atari lod by so insignificant an episode
as two proposals 011 the same evening
is quite In tho line of woman's way.
But Portia had nil excuse for hor
embarrassment, which most women
'have not, and that excuse was that it
wui not until Prlnoo Henry proposed
marriage to her that die realized how
much sho cared for Prince John, nor
did sho awaken to tho fact that she
dad a very wurm placo in her heart
Cor Princo Ilonry until Priuco John
asked her tho same question that had
ibecn put by his rival Just two hours
previously. To neither could sho say
no; to neither could she say yes
surely hero was a dilemma! It is my
own opinion that most womoii would
fiavo solved tho problem by quarrel
ling with both prlncos, and marrying
third; mid a man similarly placed
would have settled it by tho toss of a
coin. Not so with Portia. Neither
dissemblance nor penny-tossing was
0110 of ber accomplishments. Frank
ness was, and sho told tho two gentle
men as plainly as she could just how
matters stood.
"I I think I love you both," tho
aid. "And so, of course, I cannot
marry either of you at prcsout. Timo
alone can tell which of tho two I lovo
the bettor."
Most girls would hnve said "which
of the two I lovo tho be it." It was
fa mailers of this tort that Portia
allowed ber erudition.
"Como back In flvo years," she
added, "mid I will decide betweou
you. Meanwhile you should both be
atir yourselves, for by that which you
achieve are my feolings likoly to be
influenced. Ordinarily a questiou of
this kind Is settled on the basis of
love and aflootion. Here the love aud
affection bolng In both casos equal, it
becomes a question of those qualities

"Yes," replied Portia.
"But supposing (his unknown quan
tity turns out to be a third prince?"
uggested Prlnoe Houry.
"The advantage is with you." re
turned Portia, "You have ths atart
on him. If he overtakes aud passes
you, I am not to blame."

tlie world and strove.

ously to many tilings, and tuooeeded

spectability, but of narked ability,

are to win any cause to which his
energies were devoted, yet so fearful
was ho of not ultimately realizing the
ideals of the still undecided Portia,
tluit ho branched out Into literature.
He wroto a novel that even pleased
the critics. His work was diseussod
sorlousty by the pulpit, and although
whilo writing his novel ho hnduo idea
1 lint such was to be the cae, he found
himself six months 11 tier tho puhlU
cation of his great work halted ns the
father of a new philosophy. To coun
teract tho effect of his novel,
which, whilo gratifying, was
not exactly to his taste, lie
becamn a humorist a humorous
humorist, who, while ho brought tears
to tho eyes of his reader, as do most
oilier humorists, did o lei abruptly,
lending up to them through the
medium of laughter. Having shown
his ahillly in this direction, Prince
John, In order to show i'jriiii what a

several Wcstorn papers croditod to
Tennyson, while his Hamlet was of
such a quality that a promlnoiit society
Journal called him "a mute, Inglorious
Booth," which, naturally, tin construed
into the highest possible prulso.
And what of Prince Henry? Alas!
for every forward stride tiikon by
Prince John, Prince Henry took one
backward. He too triod tho law and
failed. Ho too tried literature, yet
succeeded not. Next Prince H-mry
tried to become a young Napoleon of
finance, and did so well that lie mot
his Wellington, went through ids
Waterloo, nud camo out sans ovory
thing save his good naino In less than
six months. Tho good name he had
managed to retain, though it was
sadly mortgaged. Money had boen
borrowed on it, but not In such a
fahlon as to lead to any
suspicion ns to bis Integrity. Dut

failures, Priuco Honry was not afraid
to fail again, mid he did so, this timo

passed on from failure to failure, and
at tho end of 11 vo years tho two cava

a failure, ricli only In duhts, success
ful only in lacking success.

congratulating you."

ships, for purposes of relief. Whon
a light-ship is roportod ofl Its station,
a steamer is sent out to look for it and
tow it back. If it has disappeared
altogether, another light-ship is
despatched at onco to take its place.
The torrltory cuvnrod by tho Light

For everything thcro is a reason,
and In any farm practice it Is neces
sary to know why a thing should be
done before it Is done. There are so
many diflorences in so many ways
about tho work of a farm that it is not
possible to make rules for every case
alike. Thus In deep plowing lliore are
to be takou Into consideration the kind
of soil, its condition of fertility, its
tcxlure, and many other things that
might Interfere with the expected
benefits of the work. A light, open
soil, rich aud having plenty of ma
nure In it to a considerable dopth, or
naturally rich in fortuity, may bo
plowed as deeply as may bo practica
ble; whilo another that Is thin and
lies on gravol or hurt) clay or any kind
of inferior subsoil, or that Is naturally
poor, will not permit of any but shal
low plowing. Land that has a rich
subsoil, ns a fertile, moltuw loam,
that has only been plowed for a few
years to a small dopth, may be plowod
as doepty as the farmer pleases, and
all the moro If the land is a hillside
and subject to bo washed by hoavy
rains. The doopcr plowing then per
mits tho water to sink Into tho soil In
stead of flowing on Ihe surface and

"oivtNa down" milk.
A cow carries hor milk from
one milking to the next, held firmly
la little reservoirs distributed all
through the udder. Tho valves which
open and close the passages front
these reservoirs lo the teats are under
the control of tho will, but like the
museles which close tho neck of the
bladder, they are naturally and con
stantly kept closed, and aro only re
laxed by a special effort of the will.
At milking time tlioso valves, by a re
laxation of tho cords which control
them, aro opened and tho milk lot
down In a flood into tho toats. This
relaxation docs not last long. After
a little timo tho special effort to hold
open tho valves ceases, and they In
stinctively close again, shutting off
tho flow from the reservoirs and re
taining in them any milk which may
not have passod out. Tho habit
of not "giving down" con
sists iu shortening ths timo
of this relaxation, thus stop
ping tho flow from tho reservoirs to
tho teats before the milk Is all drawn.
The circumstances which tend to mako
a cow shorten h!s period of relaxation
are rough treatment, fear, grief,
solicitudo, loud noises In short, any
thing which attracts atlontlon and
makes the cow uneasy. Tho tilings
inducing prolonged relaxation are
comfort and quietude, and freedom
from disturbance and excitement, to
gether with the relief which tho flow
of milk occasions. When a cow has
from any camo acquired a habit of
shortening the time of "lotting down"
It is vory difficult, and sometimes Im
possible, to overcome It, says Farmers'
Itecoid. The best way Is to avoid ail
occasions of disturbance, aud observe
well those which promote pleasure
and quiet for the cow, and to
milk as rapidly as possible,
consistent with comfort, with a
view to gelling the milk out before the
"letting down" ceases. Milking
rapidly doos not mean jerking dowu
sharply, or moving with hasty or
Irregular motions iu tho presence of
tho cow. Such a course would coun
teract the very thing aimed ut. The
motions of 1 ho milker should not bo
sucli as to attract suspicion. They
should bo (Icliborato and cool, but
nothing should be allowed to interrupt
or retard tho work. This will pro
duce continual relief to tho uddor.
Tho milker should boar constantly In
mind tiio fact that the letting dowu Is
short, and that every moment should
bo usod to the bost advantage. When
tho milk ceases to flow tho milking
should stop at once, whoilior it is nil
out or not. Thcro is no good in
hanging on after tho milk stops coin
ing, as it only cultivates tho habit of
"holding back." American Dairy
