A Conscientious Artist, ' '
One of Vienna's most notod lady artists-had
her portrait taken by Prof. Au
gcll a month or two ago, which chef (t
ii uvre was to have adorned her splendid
home on Christ mas eve, instead of w hich
it now stands dreary and deserted, for
sale, on an easel in an art -dealer's shop.
It does great credit to the master; hut to
her it represents it caused only grief and
sorrow, for in her eyes it had n fault, a
great fault. Just ns it is said to he tho
greatest misfortune to kings uot to wish
to hear th truth, so it proved to be In
the lady's case. The somewhat harsh
shadow' under tho chin and tho ear, as
well as the slightly course complexion,
were to her a w hole tragedy. In vain
she tried her sweetest suasion on tho
great painter: "My dear Angell, I , do
not expect you to flatter me;, btitK.ure
ly, although' the likeness is good, those
homely shadows might hear a
little softening." ,Tho artist. remained
Inexorable. She begged and implored
liiin nil in vain. Not even the promise
of doubling the already handsome price
of ;1,IHKI florins moved Ihe stubborn por
traitist, who replied w ith a stoicism that
might nxaspcrntn a saint! -"I can not
tomi down those shadows they must re
main just as they are, and so'shall the
picture, for 'I painted what I saw and
see now." JitH'rii'im Hctjinltr,

Farming on Clay tan-,
Very favorable reports have recently
hecu published in England of the profit
of farming on laud that was essentially
compact clay, in some cases whut
passed for soil had been used for niak
ing brick. Though owned by individ
uals, it had iM-en put to no agricultural
use since the settlement of theeouulry
by civilized men. By Judicious managiw
me nt it has been converted intoTalu
hle property. Considerable money wai
expended on it without anv returns.
Surface and underground drains wero
made td carry off water and cause tho
air to circulate through the hard farth.
Itepented plowing were resorted to fof
the purpose of pulverizing the compact
ground, ('are wa taken to expose thft
soil t the action of the frost and air B
much as possible. -The first cropsriilsed
were for the purpose of turning tinder
for fertilizers. In some cases two crops
were raised for this purpose In a singla
year. They benefited 'the land mechan
ically ns well as chemically by- nmkinjr
it loose. Having been treated in this
way It was found to be productive of
large crops of grass and clover. Recent
ly wheat, barley, nnd peas have Imrn
raised, the stubble. being turned under
for tho purpose of improving tle condi
tion of the soil. -It is found that these
clay lands under this treatment product
larger crops each year, although no
commercial fert ilizers have been applied
to them. In this respect they present
remarkable contrast to lands that wero
originally rich nnd fertile. It is admiU
ted that it w ill not be profitable for ten
ants to undertake to improve hard clay
lands, but it is believed that many land
lords w ill set about making unproduct
ive land profitable, and in that way add
ing to the extent of their rentable'prop-ertyk
