ONE-TrllKD OF A PICTURE.
Carious Qunt of the Owner of Cor
In a private house In the west of
London Is a very beautiful picture, re
puted to be by Correggio, and of such
high quality that there Is every rea
son to believe It to Le either by thai
master or an excellent copy of one ol
his lust original by Lodovico Carrac
cL Although apparently a complete pic
tnre iu Itself, this exquisitely painted
figure of a beautiful woman, gazing
intently at a ring, is only a third of
the original picture, and the present
owner is endeavoring to trace the mi.-s-Isg
parts in order to re-sUire the work
to Its original condition.
A document attached to the back of
the frame, and provided with a seal
with the Inscription, "Quo Fata Vo
cant," gives the curious hibtory of this
picture. It reads:
'The Queen of Candaules, a King
of Lydia, with the Magic I'.lng of
Gyges, by Corre?fo. It is part of a
larger picture which descended to three
brothers of the name of Moore. la
whose family It had long been, but

session. It was cut into three parts.
This portion was purchased by An

It came into the possession of hi
daughter, the Hon. Frances King, wife
of John Bowater, esq., at whose de
cease It was sold by auction In July,

In the winter senfwi of the year,
when most farm horses have rather tin
?nsy time of life, there Is likely to be
more or less liver and kidney trouble
ttuong them, due, to some extent, to
.he liberal feeding nnd the inactive
.ife. Oftentimes these troubles develop
n au attack of acute indigestion, fre
jnently mltttakcn for colic. The first

ating well la to give a dose of mix
vomica thr3 times dally until It re

One of the best general fertilizers for

)ii vegetables, where the crop is the
top, such as cabbages, the potash is
.educed one-half and the nitrate of

Kid phosphate is used. This plan of
