It Has Withstood Vicissitudes of
Over Twenty Centuries.
The Pantheon is the most inter
esting of all the interesting places of
Rome. It was used for its present
purpose as a pl# of religious wor
ship before the foundations of the
Coli. .um was laid. Its huge doors
have opened to admit the great ones
of the earth, from Augustus Caesar
to Napoleon, an assertion that will
scarcely be disputed.
It stands in the very heart of old
Rome, and the vicissitudes which
have befallen the Eternal City during
the 2,ooo years of its existence have
left it practically unchanged. The
-gilded bronze that lined its roof has
been carried off to "decorate" St.
Peter's, where, in the form of clouds
and Cupids, cords and curtains, it
fills the beholder with displeased
Its tiles of bronze and gold were
removed to Constantinople 1,500
years ago, and the statues which
adorned it have long since perish
ed. But the mighty walls yet
stand, firm as ever, sweeping up to
the majestic dome, the largest,
though not the highest, in the
One hundred feet across, a hundred
feet high and perfectly circular, no
architect could design a building
more perfect in its proportions,
more harmonious as a whole. It is
lighted solely by an aperture in the
dome, a circle thirty feet across,
Standing on its marble floor one
looks up to the greatest dome man
ever raised and through that the
blue dome which bends above it,
sending summer sun or winter rain
through those bare wards of.space.
The effect is so impressive, so en
tirely unmatchedl and unrivaled, that
the dullest of hearts and most un
taught of minds must perforce ac
1mowledge its influence. A man may
think St. Peter's ."disappointing,"
2may condemn the Coliseum as bar
baris or decide that he does not care
for the catacombs, but every man
who has viewed it has been impress
ed, even to the pitch of respectful
silence, by the Pantheon.
The huge leaves of the bronze
door revolve on their mighty hinges
as they have done since the days of
the Caesars, and so perfectly balanc
ed are they that a woman's wrist
can unclose them. Through those
doors they carried Julia, Caesar's
daughter, with all the pomp of her
imperial power about her. And after
the lapse of twenty centuries King
Humbert was brought across the
selfsame threshold to sleep his last
sleep in the ancient place.
"Aren't you 'going to see that per
"No," answered Mr. Cumrox.
"But it is said to be very artistic."
A#That's why I am not going.
When people say a thing is 'highly'
artistic they are so often trying to
apologize for 'its being unpleasant."
