London.-The Rhine valley is one
of the most beautiful in all the world.
Its high banks are covered with flour
ishing vineyards with the top sur
mounted by old castles that have
many stories and legends clinging to
them. The valley between Dusseldorf
and Mainz is the part that is most
patronized by tourists, and steamers
run between these two points, making
The trip is delightful either in sum

ideal to sit lazily on the deck and
watch the hills and castles and towns

ed on the top of the rock combing her
long golden hair.
But in winter time the trip is equal
ly delightful. All the sides of the boat
are inclosed in glass and the heat
from the engines makes it seem like
summer. Then the steamers are de
serted and one has room to move
around. In summer time the steamers
are so crowded that if you once are
fortunate enough to let a seat you
must hang on to it for dear life, for
there is always some one standing by
ready to grab it.
Last winter when we made the trip
there were only six passengers besides
ourselves. It was one of the most
beautiful days I have ever spent. It
was clear, a rare thing in the Rhine
valley, and we could see all over the
hills without the aid of glasses The
dinner was just as good as they serve
in summer, but not quite so stylish. In
summer the Rhine steamers have
great compotes on their tables. They
are marvelous silver arrangements of
many stories. On the top are raisins,
next nuts, next cske and last fruit.
They are so heavy and high that no
one but a German steward could ma
nipulate them successfully.
All the time the steamer keeps stop

spend on the Rhine it is hard to de

delightful places to visit-Dusseldorf,
Cologne, Bonn, Audernach, Bingen,
Mains and Coblens. Most of the tour
ists start at Cologne, for every one
who visits Germany must see the ca
thedral there, and it deserves all the
admiration that is bestowed upon it,
for there it stands with its two great
towers soaring into the air, majestic,
solemn and perfect. Its dark interior
is dimly lighted by wonderful stained
glass windows whose difused yellow,
red and blue light serves only to add
to the mysterious darkness of its cor
Near the cathedral is the little res
taurant made famous by Jessie Pbth

the place where Eugene, the hero, is
supposed to have taken Mae, the Eng

met in Cologne.
The first important town below Co

place of Beethoven. The house in
which he was born is still standing
and has been converted into d mu

composer, and the room where he was
born remains unaltered. The Univer

lessly clean, and contained running
water, both hot and cold.
Bonn has long been considered the
laziest city in the world. The story
goes that three loafers went to sleep
one day in a field. After seven years
the first woke up and exclaimed,
"Pretty uay." Seven years passed,
when the second yawned and said:
"Yes." Seven more years passed iwhe

great originality in design and perfec

were also noted for their tattooing,
which was designed to ornament the
