LONDON'S ODD PRISON
Westminster Clock Tower is the
Finest Jail In England.
BUT IT IS ALWAYS EMPTY.
The Tower Is the British Parliament's
House of Detention, and Charles
Bradlaugh Was Its Last Occupant.
The Old Prison In Former Days.
If the average senten :d criminal
were allowed to select his place of
confinement his choice would prob
ably fall on the Clock Tower prison
at Westminster, as that is the very
finest prison in Great Britain and is
able to supply comforts and luxuries
quite unknown to the ordinary Bill
But the law decides that members
of parliament only may be confined
in that jail, although rank outsiders
could be committed to the Clock Tow
er for certain offenses against the
rules and regulations of parliament.
The Clock Tower prison, as it ex
ists today, was erected in connection
with the house occupied by the ser
geant at arms. This official is in com
plete charge of any member com
mitted to the Clock Tower, and a
member cannot easily make his es
cape, because, in order to do so, he
must pass through the house of the
Very few members of parliament
are committed to the Clock Tower in
these days. We have to go back many
ears to find a precedent, Mr. Charles
Bradlaugh being the last member to
occupy the cells at the Clock Tower,
and he did not occupy them long. He
was handed over to the custody of the
sergeant at arms on June 23. 1880,
committed to the Tower and released
There are two sets of cells in the
Clock Tower, an upper and a lower,
but both suits of cells are much the
same. In each there is a sitting room
of very ample proportions, well car
peted and furnished and replete with
most- of- the things which go toward
making one comfortable.
In each suit there are two bedrooms
-one for the use of the imprisoned
1. P., the other for the convenience
of the jailer, who must always. be on
the spot in order to see that the
legislator makes no attempt to escape.
Any member of parliament sent to
the Clock Tower by order of the
speaker would be required to pay for
his own food, and if he did not do
so he could be sued in court. Any
legislator Incarcerated in the Clock
Tower would be allowed to rise in
the morning just when he pleased, and
be could retire to bed when the spirit
moved him. He could read to his
hea'rt's content and smoke as much
as he liked, there being no restrictions
over such matters;4his whole punish
ment would lie in being prevented
from joining his fellows and mixing
He would be taken out to exercise,
but would always have two officials,
beside him to guard against any at-'
tempt at escap~e, and his exercise
would be taken on the terrace before
the house sat for the day. Under
no circumstances would be be al
[owed to hold converse with his fel
low men. One way or another an fin
prisoned M. P. would not have a -bad
time of It. andl he would not be kept
in confinement for any lengthy period.
But if the Clock Tower is not much
sed nowadays, the Tower--the prison
of the house of commons of a former
day-was much in evidence- In olden
times a passing remark, an observa
tion obnoxious to the house, or, indeed,
any trifle, was sufficient to send the
culrit forthwith to the Tower, and
not to the Tower only, for a memlur
could be committed to Newgate.
Sometimes the reason for committing
a member to the Tower was somewhat
amusing, as witness the case of a
member for Southampton who once
entered the house in a drunken condi
tion and, mistaking the speaker for an
owl sitting in an ivy bush, addressed
him as such. Result-the Tower.
However, the member was released
next day and severely reprimanded
for his ridiculous behavior.
The Tower was made use of by the
'lng" parliament. In one day as mapy
as eleven Presbyterian members of the
house were committed to the custody
of the sergeant at arms and flung into
the Tower. And, to show that mem
bers were not committed for errors In
speech alone, one has only to mention
the case of Captain Churchill, who in
1869 was committed to the Tower for
refusing to take merchant ships under
the protection of his m~an of war unless
he received a gift of E200.
In those days they had to pay stiffiy
for the privilege e' being sent to the
Tower, as witness an extract from the
diary of Lord Clarendon, written the
day following his committal to the
tower. He says: "Mr. Dod brought me
a note of the fees, which come to ?130
-viz, the governor, ?100; gentleman
porter, ?20; gentleman gaoler, ?10."
When a member offends in these
days and requires to be "named"--al
ways a necessity before committal-he

A Novel Method of Advertising.
A storekeeper in a small out of the
way town many years ago hit upon a
novel methodl of advertising his store.
He conceived the Idea of buying up
the stock of stamps at the postoffice
across the way. The postmaster ob
jected to be denuded of all his stock,
but his mysterious customer demanded
the stamps over the counter, sheet aft
er sheet, as an ordinary member of
the public until he had bought every
stanlp to be had. Then he took the
stock over to his store across the road
and plastered his windows with no
tices that postage stamps were only
to be had at his store, and to his mor
tification the postmaster had to send
customers across to the store over the
way for any stamps they needed until
some days after he once more got in a
Their Methods Depicted on the Old
Tombs of Egypt.
In an address delivered before the
Royal Geographical society Cail5tain
H. G. Lyons. director general of the
survey department of Egypt. told of
the work of ancient Egyptian survey
ors. "At every period of ancient
Egyptian history," he said. "the land

system of registration was maintain
ed. No map of landed property In
ancient Egypt has come down to us,
but on the tomb walls we meet with
representations of land measurers at
work. Their methods of land meas

of the tomb of one Menna at Sheik
Abd el Qurna, in Thebes, a land over
seer and inspector of the boundary
stones of Amon.
"In the scene depicted are shown
two chainmen measuring a field of
corn with a long cord, on which are
knots or marks at intervals which
seem to be about four or five cubits
in length. Each also carries a spare
cord coiled upon his arm. Beside them
walk three officials, who carry writ

materials and a bag in which are
probably documents and plans refer

two boys also accompany the survey
ors, and a peasant brings a loaf of I
bread and a bunch of green corn.
"A similar scene is pictured on the
walls of a tomb belonging to a cer
tain Amenhote, also at Sheik Abd el
Qurna. Here only one man accom
panies the chainmen. each of whom,
as usual, carries a spare cord. The
figures are larger than in the tomb of
Menna, and, though they are now
much damaged, it is possible to see
clearly that the cord terminated in a
A MAN OF ACTION.
He Got Out of His Tight Corner With
He was d husband who, when he left
home for a week or so on a business
trip, invariably took with him a photo
of his wife, and in the letters that he
wrote to her he always made a great
point of this portrait and dwelt upon
the fact that the sight of it was the
only thing that kept his spirits up
when he was far away from her.
One day, however, he left the home
and forgot to take the portrait with
him. But he was not going to let a
little thing like that worry him.
Down he sat and penned his cus
tomary amorous epistle, in which the
portrait played its usual part. It was
not until the letter was posted that he
remembered that the portrait had been
left at home in a conspicuous place
where his wife could not fail to dis

The Eternal Feminine.
A photographer was called upon not
long ago to make some pictures of an
old lady of seventy years or so, but of
surprising agility and quickness of per
ception. The picture man was there
fore somewhat surprised to find that
no words of address could induce the
old lady to speak until after the opera
tion was completed. Then she put her
fingers into her mouth, whence she
withdrew several wads of paper.
"You wouldn't have me photograph

you?" she asked the photographer. "I

her naive comments. In a street car
not long ago she noticed a man car
rying a shotgun and a blanket roll.
"Look at him," she whispered to her
companion. "He looks as if he were
going to spend the night somewhere."
The elderly bride regarded in the

SEED OF *THE VIOLET.
The Flower Is Aggressive In Spite of
Its Boasted Modesty.
The- common wild violet affords one
of the most remarkable illustrations of
the care .and apparent forethought of.
nature in preserving a species. As er
erybody knows, the violet grows in the
shade, in pastures, woods and fields
where the:, grass is abundant and long.
It comes up early in the spring and
flowers at a time when the grass is
most abandant and succulent Of
course it is liable to be cut down by
the scythe, but much more likely is it
to be bitten off by grazing animals.
The viclets that come in the spring
either do not seed at all or very spar
ingly, so that if the plant relied on its
apring flowers for seed It would prob
ably per:;h off the earth in a very few
But in the late fall the plant bears t
another crop of blossoms that are ner- I
er seen save by the professional bota
nist. They are very small, utterly in
significant in appearance,. and grow
either just at or below the surface of
the ground. These are the flowers
which produce the seeds for the next
season. The flowers on long stems
blooming in spring are only for show;
the hidden flowers are for use, and the
number of seeds they bear may be
judged from the ease with which a
wild violet bed spreads.
When the seeds are ripe the pod ex
plodes, scattering them to a consider
able distance, often to ten or twelve
feet from the parent plant, so that in
spite of its boasted modesty the violet
not only takes care of itself, but be
comes a troublesome aggressor. - St.
SWOONED AT THE BELL.
Odd Effect of One Cure Through the
A very well known oculist tells of
one case where healing through the
subliminal consciousness was really a
source of embarrassment to the physi
cian who was responsible for it. Sev
eral years ago when the eye specialist
-he knows about ears and throats, too
-was studying in Vienna a young girl
was brought to the hospital to be treat
ed for some nervous disorder. Hypno
tism-or suggestion, as oue is asked to
call it these days-was used, and. she
was brought. under his influence by
the ringing of a bell. After a few
treatments she went to sleep, or into
the unconscious and receptive state, as
soon as she heard the bell. She was
speedily cured and left the .hospitaL
Next day she was brought unconscious,
roused and sent away. The day after
that she was brought in again. Indeed,
for some time scarcely. a day passed
when she wasn't carried in limp and
unconscious. She became a positive
nuisance to the great neurologist that
had hypnotized her, and he finally sent
persons to watch her. It was found
that on her way to work she passed a
certain church and usually was at the
door at the moment during the cele
bration of the mass when the bell rang.
At its tinkle she calmly curled up and
went to sleep. It was necessary to
suggest to her the next time she was
brought to the hospital that no bell in
the world could have any effect on her
except the one rung in the hospital by
the neurologist After that she went
about the city quite unaffected by the
bells, and the neurologist drew a breath
of relief.-Washington Herald.
