PLEASANT PIECES ON THE SHORE
OF THE GULF OF GENOA.
Italian Rnorti Where All Travelers Go.
lMJTerenres of Opinion on thm Old
Towns Of roterfeat to Readers and
Write Three Winter Capitals.
The eastern shore of the Gulf of Genoa-
she Riviera di Lev auto differs from tba
Rirlera di Ponente, which was described in
my lust letter. In being very much damper.
The chief wind ft from the west, which,
coming over the sea, nearly always brings
rain. But, as the climate is fully as warm
M at Ban Remo or Nice, the dampness adds
. to the beauty of the vegetation; there is
plenty of grass even in summer, and the
number of deciduous trees is much greater.
When the leaves are fallen these trees are
hardly noticed in winter; but in summer
tbeir fresh green lends a great charm to the
semi-tropical aspect of the palms, the lemons
and the olives. Tbe nearness of the high
mountains to tbe coast, the abrupt changes
of strata, the frequent precipltlous rocks,
and the pine groves which often come down
to tbe edge of the sea, give a different char
acter to tbe scenery.
Tbe ou!y two pluces in this region which
are as yet thoroughly desirable are Sta.
Margherita and Rapallo, in the latter of
which there is an excellent good hotel and an
English church. But as they are only about
a mile apart the conveniences of one lan be
enjoyed at the other. There are an unusual
number of beautiful walks and very good
carriuge roads leading to various points in
the interior. The bay is so protected by tbe
promontory of Porto Kino that boating is
nearly always possible and pleasant. There
are villas to bo had at both places and on tbe
road between; but the resident foreign
colony is not yet large.
Specia is still frequented iu summer by
Italians for bathing, but its attractiveness
to foreigners has diminished since it has be
come a great Italian naval station, and its
lovely hills have leen covered with huge
rat browxisos' opinio or rtsa.
Pisa is the rvmniniug warm town of North
ern Italy. Its climule is so much milder
than that of Florence that in the lost cen
tury invalids often passed the winter there
and it was a great place of resort. The
court of Tuscany, as Horace Mann tells us,
used to come for a month or two, and Smol
lett spent there the year before his death,
finishing his best and most amiable novel,
"Humphrey Clinker." In the early part of
tbe century, too, it had a large English
colony, in addition to Shelley, Laudor,
Byron and Lady Elessington, but at present
the English colony has so fallen off that the
church, which is transferred for the summer
to the Baths of Lucca, bos but a scanty con
gregation. The hotels are ot the very best;
Leghorn and Viureggio are a short distance
off in one direction; Lucca, with its old
walls, now used as promenades, its churches
and its pictures, close by, and Florence, but
two hours distant by express train, so that it
is perfectly easy to pass a day there when
When the Brownings spent the winter
there in 1S47 they found it dull, but they
bad brought no English books with them;
apparently received uo newspapers; tbe
church library was soon exhausted, and com
munications were not sufficiently rapid to
allow a subscription to Vieussieux's circulat
ing library at Florence. Sluoe then every
one else has voted Pisa dull, although per
sonally I was not impressed by this in tbe
month that 1 spent there. Even the hotel
was entertaining; for, except ourselves, no
one ever remained more than two days and
rarely more than one; and, as in a kaleido
scope, tbe changes were amusing and often
There are really only tbreo winter capitals
in Italy r lorence, llomeand -Naples. Turin,
Milan and Bologna are too cold and too
snowbound to attract sojourners. Yet Turin
baa a charming society and a brilliant court
life, and it is tiie only place, outside of Rome,
where, In deference to family traditions, the
old court is muiutaiued. For those who can
stand tbe cold it would be a good place for
an enterprising mother to introduce her
daughters into high society and perhaps make
brilliant marriages for them. In Milan and
Bologna one bos the best operas, the best
ballets and the best concerts in Italy. At
Venice, although it raroly freezes, it is very
damp, and this dampness is sometimas so
cold that one wonders why the canals are
not a solid block of ice. Add to that that
the houses and hotels have very large rooms
- and small facilities for heatintr them.
FLORENCE, TEX "WINTER CITY."
Florence is the literary and artistic center,
and, according to Ouido, is pre-eminently the
"winter city." Iu galleries are thronged by
those who delight in the infancy of crt, which
u often to near akin to the art of Infancy.
When one looks at the number of tall, angu
lar English old maids, in various positions of
rapture, one sometimes thinks that their ad'
miration for Botticelli and Masaoclo comes
from a vaue Idea that these artists have en
deavored to idolize their own charms. There,
too, one finds the latest productions of mod
ern art, whether they be the water colors of
Newman some of Tuscad country and of
Lucca architecture, others such vivid ren
derings of the beat and glare along the Nile
that one wishes never to go to Egypt again
or whether they be the lost statues of Italian
or American sculptors ono so perfect In its
naturalism, in its details of stuffs and clothes
that the artistio feeling is smothered; the
other such a clever production by skilled
Italian bands of a coot so ideal that one won
ders that the so called sculptor ever dared to
put his hand to the clay model, for he rarely
For a person of literary tastes Florence has
many attractions and advantages. Besides
the archives, which are easily accessible,
there r.n several large public libraries, the
bast in Italy; and the service of the national
libraries has beeu so regulated and improved
that on a simple request a rare book or man
uscript will be brought from the library of a
distant city and placed at tbe disposal of the
reader. In this way at Florence one has the
command of the national libraries of the
kingdom with their treasures. Then there is
the circulating library of Vicus3ieux, by far
the best lending library out of England, with
Its thousands of books in all languages, its
excellent reading rooms, where the news
papers and magazines of every country may
be found, and iu well known corner for the
chess players. Of course there are excellent
modern book shops, as well as others, large
and small, where old books and engravings
may be bargained for. Indeed, a book col'
lector oan have great fun in Italy, although
more at Rome than Florence, as libraries of
elead cardinals or of bankrupt princes occa
sionally come into the market. Cor. Phila
A Gaa Hammer.
John Bull uses a lot of iron in making
tools, but he makes some very good ones
sometimes. A Scotish branch of an English
machinery house has recently brought out a
gas hammer which must prove very handy
in the shop. Instead of steam furnishing the
motive power, a mildly explosive mixture of
common coal gas and atmospheric air is em
ployed. It is used to propel the hammer pis
ton very much as in the cylinder of a gas an
gina. Softer blows are given by mincing
the range of movement of the hand lever,
and the force of the blow can be regulated as
easily and accurately as with tho steam ham
mer. The hammer is that known as the three
fourth hundred weight size, but the ordinary
blow struck by It is equal to a weight
of three hundred-weight falling through
a height of one foot; 3,000 blows
only use thirty-three cubic feet of
Birmingham gas, which at & Cd. per 1,000

heavy blows can be struck for the some sum.

DOWN ON THE WHISTLES.
A Strong- Protest Acalnet the Early
Horning Slznaia In the. Trl CI'lM
Dlsaatroue Rrsnlts Declared.
The Davenport Democrat-Qatette under
the head of "howl towns," makes a vig
orous protest against tbe early morning
whistles in the trinities, asserting that
they drive tbe sick to death and tbe ner
vous to insanity. In Hock Island where
there are as many gong whistles as there
are in Davenport, the people have be
come accustomed to the noise and din at
day break, and very little attention is
f paid them, but over the river a different
state of affairs seem to exist and the
Democrat' Gazette says:
"Must it bo endured all tbe spring,
summer and autumn again this early
breaking, agonizing blowing of song
whistles at 5 o'clock in the morning?"
was the greeting a reporter received as be
entered tbe office of a leading physician
this forenoon. "The medical societies on
both sides'of the river ought to take
action concerning it and ask the Busi
ness Men's associations in both cities to
do the same and both appeal to tbe city
councils. It is an outrage. They com
mence sounding tho He whistles at S
o'clock id tbe morning, and keep It up at
intervals until ? o'clock. It isn't the saw
mills aloue, though they do the chief part
of it but there are some other manu
factories that do it. Every physi
cian of good practice in both cities will
tell you that it is a disturbance to sick
and neiv.:us people that is painful
and dangerous. It breaks sleep, and
produces irritation of the nerves and
brain that often'imes arrests all-efforts to
benefit tbein. I have no doubt that it
has caused death, and I know that it tins
been tbe means of making people insane.
There is nothing worse for ill people than
sleeplessness when patients ought to
sleep. Often they will be restleps and
WHkerul all nicht, and in the morning
fall to sleep only to we awakened by the
mnrnai wnisues. it is such a useless
practice too. It can't be justified in this
day of cheap clock9. And why the man
ufacturers will persist in it, I can't see. It
is absolutely inhuman. I have been told
that one excuse is that it mikes the two

is. Does't everybody know that it Isn't

Did the course of true love ever run
smooth? Surely not in the case of Dob
Tolliver, the well known colored short
stop of the Sterling base ball club. Last

him, claiming him as the prospective
father of her forthcoming offspring. Tol
liver thought be was warranted in at
tempting to spring off. but a warrant
stopped the journey of tbe short atqp.
He forthwith decided to join the Savages
and take Miss Mary for a bride. Arriving

that a license was necessary and could
