PTJ INTtRNAtlONAL PRESS ASSOCIATION f is always a thankless office to give advice ih these matters," said Mrs. Charles Romaine, discreetly. "Your brother aftd I have decided net to attempt to influence you in any . way, Constance! not to bias your judgment avot of or against Mr. Withers, YoU, !he one most nearly interested in :he consequences of your acceptance r i-efiual of his offer, should surely ie able to make up your mind hoW' to teat it and him.'' I should be, as you say," responded ;he sister-in-law. "But I cannot." She was a handsome woman, in the Time , of early maturity, whose face Idom wore, in the presence of c'.uers, e perturbed expression that now be;loomed it. "T,hat does not affect the fact of your ity," answered Mrs. Romaine, with ionrdderable severity. "There are times nd circumstances in which vacillation s folly—criminal weakness. You Uave nown Mr. Withers long enough to . 'orm a correct estimate of his charac- |er. In means and in reputation he is ,11. that could be desired, your brother ays.

And excuse me for saying that a oman of your age should not be at a IBS in weighing these." r Again Constance had nothing ready Sxccpt a weak phrase of reluctant ac- iuiescence. "I feel the weight of your Boning, Margaret. You cannot de- ise me more than I do myself for my ildish hesitancy. Mr. Withers—any insible and .honorable man deserves 'fferent treatment. If I could see the y clear before me I would walk in But, indeed, I am in a sore dilem- " She turned away, as her voice Ook on the last sentence, and affect- to be busy with some papers upon a .nd. Mrs. Romaine was just in all her lalings with her husband's sister, and leant, in her way, to be kind.

"Is •. Withers personally disagreeable to 'ill" she demanded, in her strong con- alto voice. "I liked him tolerably well—very 'ell, in fact, until he told me what Bought him here so regularly," Con- ;ance stammered. "Now I am embar- in his presence—so uneasy that Jwish sometimes I could never see or ar of him again." Mere shyness!" said Mrs. Romaino. ,ch as would be. pardonable in a of seventeen. In aiwoman of seven- Jl-twenty it is absurd. Mr. Withers highly esteemed by all who know Your disrelish of his society is , unless"—the marble gray eyes 're searching—"unless you have a Sfor attachment?" jonstance smiled drearily. "I have er been in love in my life, that 1 "9,w of." |You are none the worse for having japed an infatuation that has wreck- ^nore women for time and for eter- y than all other delusions combined, ^rational marriage—founded upon ,ual esteem and the belief that the il and moral condition of the par- to the contract would be promot- .thereby—is the only safe union.

This is a momen- era in your life, I can only hope pray that you may be guided ;ht in your decision," ifeft to herself to digest this morsel I pjous encouragement, Constance i\v a low seat to the hearth regis- Sf clasped her bands upon her knees, tried, for the hundredth time that , to weigh the facts of her position ly and impartially, ihe hpd been an orphan for eight ,rs, and a resident In the bouse of IP elder brother, Her senior by more t a dozen years,, and In the exclt- swing of successful mercantile life, ibad little leisure for the study of sister's tastes and, traits, when she t became bis ward, and conceived I; task to be an unnecessary one, npw |S she was to be a fixture in bis faro* and appeared to get QJJ empetbly big wife,. Jn tru.tb.,.4t ftever oc- l to him tQ lay ft disturbing finger tbe tiniest waeej of the ibingry, Hif respect for MS " an* wjta}ft,l9.trati¥P anly by ber eratlons as minister of the Interior— the ruler of the establishment he, by a much-abused figure of speech, called his home. A snug and elegant abode she made of it, and, beholding Constance well dressed and well fed, habitually cheerful and never rebellious, he may be forgiven for not spending a thought upon her for hours together, and when he did remember her, for dwelling the rather upon his disin* terested kindness to a helpless depend* ettt than speculating upon her possible and unappeased spiritual appetites. For these, and for other whimsies, Mrs. Romaine had little thought and no charity. Life, with 'her, was a fabric made up of duties, various and many, but all double-twisted into hempen strength and woven too closely for a shine of fancy or romance to strike through. She had coincided readily In her husband's plan to take charge of his young sister when her parents died. "Her brother's house is the fittest asylum for her," she had said. "I shall do my best to render her comfortable and contented." She kept her word. Constance's wardrobe was ample and handsome, her room elegantly furnished, and she entered society under the chaperonage of her sister-in-law. The servants were trained to respect her; the children to regard her as their elder sister. What more could a penniless orphan require? Mrs. Romaine was not afraid to ask the question of her conscience and of heaven. Her "best" was no empty profession. It was lucky for her self-Complacency that she never suspected what years' of barrenness and longing these eight were to her protege. Constance was not a genius—therefore she never breathed even to herself: "I feel like a seed in the cold earth, quickening at heart, and longing, for the air." Her temperament was not melancholic, nor did her taste run after poetry and martyrdom. She was simply a young, pretty and moderately well-educated woman, too sensible not to perceive that her temporal needs were conscientiously supplied, and too affectionate to be satisfied with the meager allowance of nourishment dealt out for her heart and sympathies. While the memory of her father'siproud affection and her mother's caresses was fresh upon her she had long and frequent spells of lonely weeping—was wont to resign herself in the seclusion of her chamber to passionate lamentations over her orphanage and isolation of spirit. Routine was ,Mrs. Ro- malne's watchword, and in bodily exercise Constance conformed to her quiet despotism—visited, studied, worked and took recreation by rule. The system wrought, upon her beneficially so far as her physique was concerned. She grew from a slender, pale girl into ripe and healthy womanhood; was mere comely at twenty-seven than at twenty-one. CHAPTER II. UT all this time she was an hungered. She would cheerfully havo refunded to her brother two-thirds of her liberal allowance of pocket money if he liad granted to her with its quarteriy payment a sentence of fraternal fondness, a token, verbal or looked, that he remembered whose child 'she was, and that the same mother love had guarded their infancy. Her sister-in-law would have been welcome to withhold many of her gifts of wearing apparel and jewelry had she bethought herself now and then how gratefuly kisses fall'upon young lips, and that youthful heads are often sadly weary for the lack of a friendly shoulder, or a loving bosom, on which to rest. She did not accuse her relatives of willful unkindness because these were withheld, They interchanged no such unremunerative demonstrations among themselves. Husband and wife were courteous in their demeanor, the one to the other; their children were demure models of filial duty at home and industry at school; the training in both places being severe enough to quench what feeble glimmer of individuality may have been born with the offspring of the methodical and practical parents, Constance found them extremely uninteresting, notwithstanding the natural Jove for children which led her tp court their companionship during the earlier weeks of her domestication in their house. It was next to a miracle that she did not stiffen in this atmosphere Into a buckram Image of feminine propriety—a prodigy of starch and virtue, such as would have brought calm delight to the well-regulated mind of her exemplar, and effectually chased all thoughts pf 'matrimony from those of masculine beholders. Had her dlscon teijt with her allptted sphere been less active, the'result would have been certain and deplorable, She was, instead 'popular among her acquaintances pj both sexes, and bad many friends, few levers, "Tbis l 'l»tke,F. deficiency baft given her no cpneera wnttl ,wttbin two At'twenty "five She, eyes, in wide ajnagp ujppft j| P f sf her v}rg}B associates,, jpr}c;u.s,ly to }§$ b^e be iftflttltiftg. tte# quick wit Aftfl of ffee world helped fief td a solution of the problem, "i am aftd dependent upon my brothers ity." she concluded, with a new ftftd stifling uprising of dissatisfactien with her condition. "Men rarely fall 1ft love; with such— more rarely Woo them." She never spoke the thought aloud, hut it grew and strengthened until it received a startling blow from Mr. With* ers* proposal of marriage. He was a wealthy banker from a neighboring city, whom business relations with Mr. tlomaihe drew to his house and into his sister's company. His courtship was all Mrs. Romaine could desire. His Visits were not too Sequent, and were paid at stated intervals, as befitted his habits of order aftd punctuality. His manner to the lady itmofed by his preference was replete With stately respect that Was the antipodes of servile devotion, While his partiality for her society, and admlra* :lon for her person, were unmistakable. He paid his addresses through Mf. Romaine as his fair one's guardian, offering voluntarily to give his beloved whatever time for deliberation upon the proposal she desired. "You had better think it over for a week," advised her brother, when he had laid the case duly before Constance. "It is too serious, a matter to be settled out of hand." After that, neither he nor his wife obtruded their counsel upon her until the afternoon of the seventh day. Then Mrs. Romaine, going to her sister's chamber to communicate the substance of a telegram just received by her husband to the effect that Mr. Withers would call that evening at 8 o'clock, was moved to grave remonstrance by the discovery that she whom he came to woo had no answer prepared for him. Constance was no nearer ready after the conversation before recorded. "I cannot afford to be romantic," she had reminded herself several times. "And who knows but this irrational repugnance may pass away when I have once made up my mind to accept him? This may be— in all likelihood it is — my last chance of achieving an independent position. It has been a long time coming, and my charms will be on the wane soon. True, a marriage with Elnathan Withers is not the destiny of which I have dreamed, but then dreams are but foolish vagaries after all. Life ds real and earnest." (TO BE CONTINUED.) DAlftY AND OUft RURAL A ZOOLOGICAL DIVERSION. An Elephant That Used to Play a Clevei Trick on Visitors. , The elephant at the Jardin des Plantes, at Paris, used to play his visitors a trick, which could not havo been thought of but by an animal of much intelligence. His house opened upon an inclosure called the Elephant's park, containing a pond, in which he would lay himself under the water, concealing every part of him except the very end of "his trunk—a mere sp«sok that would hardly be noticed by a stranger to the animal's habits. A crowd would-assemble around .the inclosure, and, not seeing him in it, would watch in expectation that he would soon issue from the house. But, while they were gazing about, a copious sprinkling of water would (all upon them, and ladies'and gentlemen, with their fine bonnets and coats, would run for shelter under the trees, looking up at the clear sky and wondering whence such a shower could come. Immediately afterward, however, they would see the elephant rising from his bath, evincing, as it seemed, an awkward joy at the trick that he had played. In the course of time his amusement became generally known, and the moment the water began to rise from his trunk the spectators would take flight, at which he appeared exceedingly delighted, getting up as fast, as he could to see the bustle he had caused.—Pittsburg Dispatch. USES OF ICE WATER. In Health It Should Not Be Used for Drinking Purposes. In health no one ought to drink ice water, for it has occasioned fatal inflammation of the stomach and bowels, and sometimes sudden death. The temptation to drink it is very great in the summer. To use it at all with safety the person should take but a single swallow at the time, take tbe glass from the lips for half a minute, and then another swallow, and so on. It will be found that in this way it becomes disagreeable after a few moutu- fuls. On the other hand, ice itself may be taken as freely as possible, not only without injury, but with the most striking advantage in dangerous forms of disease. If broken in sizes of a pea or bean and swallowed as freely as practicable, without mucb chewing or crunching between the teeth, it will often be efficient in checking various kinds of diarrhea, and has cured violent cases of Asiatic cholera. A kind of cushion of powdered ice kept to the entire scalp has allayed violent inflam* mation of the brain, and arrested fearful convulsions induced by too much •blood there, In croup, water as cold as ice can make Jt, applied freely to the throat, neck and chest with a sponge or cloth, very often affords an almost miraculous relief, and if fol lowed by drinking cpplously pf the same loe-cpld element, the wetted parts wiped dry, an$ the child .wrapped up well In tbe bed clptbes, It' falls Into a 4*ltsMf«r ana life-giving heflgw, In Bott SneteMfnl fnrmerl Operate fhfi UepAt'ttneht of fh8 frkrta—A frett illntg at to the bare of Lite Stock and Pooltrj-, thtfi ifcm? fcUfidflfd (4<W is&tiWfi f6f tfit' J-eftF fia 6fie cfifl ddabt-^-b^ 6all ft Jttsl lhat afid £6ti hate a sla&dard Wofln Working to reach. &0 obe eatt denj-^ even 4t present low prices of batter- 1 there id a goo'd profit in keeping & 400- pound cow. EEtt&OHM, of London, says: Continued small shipments to Europe, and a consequent further reduction in the quantity afloat, have helped to counterbalance the usually de* pressing effects of first supplies of new wheat, and in a general Way it aiay be said that the trade is begtn» ning to feel the effects of the paucity of foreign wheat in view,.as manifested (n the quantity afloat for the United Kingdom, which is now little over 12,000,000 bit, against 24,800,000 bu last year, and which means that supplies of foreign Wheat must be moderate for some time to come, a fact which English farmers with their new wheat in excellent condition will not be slow to take note of. There are, indeed, several sufficient reasons Avhy the immediate future of wheat should be regarded Wilth lest) discouragement than was the case a month ago. First and foremost, it is becoming evident from the various reports received that the American crop iu not likely to be as large as was expected, and, indeed, will fall rather considerably below last year's total, a poor spring wheat crop much more than counterbalancing an Improved winter wheat crop. In the second place it is now tolerably clear that France will not have the abun- lant crop once looked for, enough be- ng known of the threshing results n the south, southwest, center and east of France to warrant tho statement .hat only an ordinary average crop has jeen obtained in these districts. In :he north and northwest, where the larvest is now drawing to a close, the •esults are relatively better, but the jest informed authorities affirm that ;he total crop will not exceed and will probably not equal that of last year, 30 that, as we pointed out in our last •eview, as tho stocks of old wheat have been practically exhausted in the absence of any important supply of foreign wheat in the past season, France will in all probability import considerably more foreign wheat in 1896-7 /ban she, has in 1895-C. The Paris Buletin des Halles, we may add, deduces ;rom tho recent official crop report that :ho' total crop this year will be about 118,750,000 hectolitres, against 119,600,900 hectolitres last year. So far, however, purchases of foreign wheat in France are difficult, owing to its relatively high price; Danubian wheat, for instance, sells at Dunkirk or Calais at jqual to 33s 6d per.480 Ibs, duty paid, ivhilo at Lille new home-grown wheat :s offered at 31s to 32s per 480 Ibs. Another reason why the trade should oe less despondent is to be found in the latest official Russian crop report, and iccording to which neither the Ghirka ivheat nor the Azlma wheat crop is likely to be an average, although the former is regarded as promising better than the latter. Wheat buyers gen- srally have apparently become so extremely cautious that they need not be reminded of the fact that early crop astimates, specially in America and Russia, are apt to be misleading, but under the present extraordinary circumstances in regard to the statistical position, any marked deterioration tn the general crop outlook might find them napping. The Four-Hundred Pound Cow. The possibilities of butter production ,n matter of yield per cow per season is me of great interest, writes F. W. .Woseley in Nebraska Farmer. Other things being equal, the smaller the aerd the easier great results can be ibtained. Some of the best results are *hown when but one cow is kept, Yet io one will deny such results can be ipproximated when a greater number jf cows are kept, but in such cases the ;ows to start with must be equally jood and each must have the same at- ,'ention given to the one cow. "But," jays some reader, "that would not pay," If results such as are given be- /ow could be obtained it would pay. to, John Pritchard, Castleton, Rut.'and county, Vt., has a cow with a rec-. )rd worthy of emulation, In reply to in inquiry made by the writer last Spring some facts were given and are luoted as follows; "Our cow is six years old, is three- fourths Jersey, and Is of good size.

But it Is to be observed that the water ift sUch ditch of well is Usually & little lowef than that of the water 1ft the edit, it Must he re- mem bored also that the fofegaiftg statement would fafely be tf ue fdf a stiff clay soil, In clay soils the wells are commonly 'over-shbt wells,' as the term is; that is, they are mere pits to receive and hold the surface Water, which flows into them at the top. The proper height at .Which grounds-water, should otand itt order best to cbhd'iice to tho prosperity of the growing plant is a question of no little complexity. There are numberless swamp plants which prefer to have their roots constantly immersed in ground-water. Rice, also, and the cranberry and ribbon-grass, and a few other useful grasses, flourish with their roots actually wet. But as a general rule the plants of cultivation cannot bear such an excess of this kind of moisture. It is with them 'much as it is with the greenhouse plants, there must be u hole in the bottom of the pot or the plants will drown. Many plants having powerful roots do indeed send some of theni down to ground-water. There are innumerable examples on record, for that matter, of the choking of drains by the roots of various kinds of clover, and of turnips, grape-vines and the like. It is possible to grow a great variety of plants in mere water. But in spite of all this, it is notorious that plants flourish beat in soils where tho ground-water is several feet from the surface of the soil. In the cultivation of moors and bogs in Europe, it is held as one essential condition of success that tho ground-water must be kept at least three feet below the surface of the land In summer, and as much as two feet below the surface in winter. Notes on Small Fruit. For largest yield.of perfect berries, two favorable seasons are necessary. The first to perfect the root, the plant and the fruit bud. The root is the foundation on which future success depends. The tint of flower and perfection of fruit proceeds from the root. Its best development .requires fine, rich soil, plenty of moisture and frequent cultivation. With good roots, vigorous plants and canes may be expected. Vigorous canes well pruned, free from weeds and grass and having sufficient room to grow, will form many strong vigorous buds for next season's fruit. These fruit buds are promises of future payment and the first season's work is not done until they are carefully prepared for their long winter sleep. The second season is a repetition of the first, as the same care that matures this, year's plant also matures fruit on last year's cane. The fruit grower should then remember that in preparing the soil, in selecting plants, in hoeing, cultivating, pruning, thinning of fruit, protection, and in every little detail, he is performing an important part in the quality and quantity of his fruit one or two years hence. Neglect the work but a single week, and like an ugly thread woven into a beautiful pattern, it shows imperfection ever after. The eternal now is the time to grow good fruit. In many parts of the northwest, strawberries have been almost a failure because of imperfect root growth last year. In many cases even- staminate varieties were so weak and pollen so impotent, they could not fertilize their own blossoms. Lack of pol- lenization is tbe direct cause of failure. This weakness of root growth extends to new setting this year, and great care will be necessary even under favorable circumstances, to place new beds in good condition for next year's fruiting.—M. A. Thayer. Fineness of Soil Important, Prof. Milton Whitney, of Johns Hopkins university, has determined that, in an ordinary wheat soil, there are at least 10,000 million soil, grains in, a gram (about a pint), and in some of the flneet soils this number has reacTje<J 24,000 millions. In coarse or sandy soils, the particles, by reason of greater weight, take a closer arrangement; hence there is less air spa^e, Tbe more soils are divided up and made fine, like dust, the more air space, and for same reason, the more surface in a given bulk. To illustrate: A cubic foot of bard 'jvranite has only six square feet of surface exposed to air Pr water, If ground t0 fineness of a good wheat soil, then a cubic foot will have over two acres of surface, and in the finest limestone soil of Maryland the exposed surface of all tbe soli grains in a cubic foot exceed three acres in extent. Tbe amount of surface is important, as the water in the soil adheres tp these surfaces, and the ropts occupy the spaces .between in search of food. T,be more fine spaces there aretfte wore fine'root- lets there will be, and-the mpre the plant can gather from .tbe spil. f w* si iHifftffffii 4tiifc jjtfrftfijttWttift t tdtte trials with tindergfwsad •* and e&aeftt ditched ttt ftscertaifi 1!

These were laid 12 feet apart about one foot deep. The water entered at the head of the plat, in one channel, from which the three pipes diverged, first at right angles, and then along parallel lines the length of the plat, ending at one point at the extreme eftd of the plat. At this point a cistern was dug, in order that We might flush the pipes when required. Perforations were made every 12 feet Into these wooden plugs were placed. These plugs con* tained holes through which the watet could flow. Over the plugs were placed cans to prevent the soil from clogging them. For the third season the underdralns disappointed us very much. We opened them up the fourth year and made the perforations In the plugs larger, in order to secure a freei flow of water, but with no better success. We kept no account of the cost of the cement drains, as cost will vary in varying communities, and it seems utterly beyond economical use for common farm crops, amounting to several hundred dollars per acre. The station professors arrived at the following conclusions: 1. Subirrigation, whether by 'large, open drains or by the cement pipe system, fails to supply moisture enough for growing crops. 2. The lateral movement of water was too slow to furnish the requisite, supply for the evaporation of plants, being at the rate of a very few inches per day. 3. The subirrlgated soil was warmer than the surface irrigated soil. 4. The atmosphere around the plants, to the height of 12 inches, was warmer by sublrrigation than by surface irrigation. 5. The subirrlgated plat did not contain as much moisture as the surface irrigated plat. 6. It Is concluded that for the college farm the lateral movement of water cannot be made rapid enough for maximum crop, growth. 7. The system is too costly for ordinary farm crops. A Wet Sol^l la Cola. It is not difficult to see how certainly a wet soil must be a cold one, since under the summer sun there must take place a constant, and rapid evaporation of the surface water of the soil and a corresponding cooling of the surface must take place; When evaporation has progressed until the absorbent power of the earth is greater than the sun's rays, or so to speak, until the pores of the surface are closed, then commences the baking process so well known to farmers and so difficult tcr manage. Underdralnage is the simple and certain remedy for these evils.slnce by removing and keeping removed the surface water the soil becomes both dry and warm, which renders it also more friable, and in every sense easier to cultivate. California Fruit in London,—On sampling it has been found that the first shipment of California fruit this season is not of the quality that fetches the 'highest prices in the London market, , says American Gardening. The .pears were undersized and too good for the low class trade, and too poor for the highest class, They are, however, well adapted for dessert fruit The best pears brought $2.62, and the lowest price was ?1.12; average cases sold for $1.50 to $2.50. The plums in the consignment were also too small^. but realized $1,90 a crate of four boxes. Only thirteen boxes were damaged In the entire consignment. Buyers competed keenly for the best lots, Consignees say that, had the shipment been of the highest California quality, the pears would have realized $3.50 or more a case.
