To describe the Tow er of London to detail
ta absolutely unneceaet ry it is too well known
a a whole, but there are Interesting little
facta not generally reiuzed by the public, and
there are nooka usutlly unvuuted. - It waa
my good fortune on a recent day to go care
fully around this grand old pile wilh a special
order from Gen. Mi man, the resident gov
ernor. Passing by tl e Traitors' Gate, I went
Into the Bloody Tower, In a room in which 1
found myself stand ag on the very spot
wherein wore Imprisoned the two littje
pr Incus, and from tb- window of which cen
turies after Arch bint op Laud leaned out to
bless Lord Strafford as bo passed to death
upon the acaeold just beyond. An old, old
room this, full of historic interest, and now
inhabited by one of the picturesquely attired
beef eaters. St John's cliurch, one of the
oldest Norman clm -clies in the kingdom,
built in 1067, U too well known to require de

IN THE DUNGEON.
lu paming down a utah-case in this White
tower, wberelu is kept this armor, and in
which is placed a staid of 60,000.iuodern ri
des, 1 noticed the enormous thickness of the
splendid walls, and ou inquiring I was in
formed that thoy we:-o fU'tocu t'ect in depth.
BouMtth tiie White tower are the dungeons,
which are never shov.-n to the general public.
Uere is an eternal tn Uight, a rousty smell, an
icy ohillmuxa. The Cn.t out), pure Norman in
its arcul uji-turo, is cal il the Torture chamber,
for hero wore stretx bed upon the rack the
miserable victims of political necessity or re
ligious bigotry. In a very narrow passage
lending out of this g-eat enamour, and which
is knowu by the uuue of little Ease, be
caiue in it a prisoner could neither ait nor lie
uown, was wearily imprisoned the misguided
Uuy Pawkes. In tu t pitch dark dungeon be
yond, which has nt flooring but the damp,
cold earth, went onto imprisoned 800 Jews,
who, in the Thirtemtu century, were sus
pected of the crime of clipping coin. A
dreadful place this, iind hideously suggestive
of the undreamed ol' horrors of these "good
old days of yore. " V he door an old oak one,
iron bound and immensely strong ehut off
these poor wretches from all communication
with the outer work
In this dungeon, or a series of dungeons,
was recently discovered a very deep well,
into which we fwu -fully peeped. Prom the
dungeon to the cburtsh is but a short step; in
the old days the journey was usually made
from the latter to the former. St Peter's
dates from 127!;; it Is full at the saddest, ten
deixet interest; witl.in its dingy walls and be
neath its historic jjavemente there lie the
bodies of three of England's queens. Ruskin
finely says of the church that "it is the sad
dest spot in Christei.dom, for here are buried
in dishonor the gree test in the land, while at
Westminster Abbty they are buried In
honor," a most touching and suggestive con
trast. Mout of the oeautif ui bi ni sm were re
moved hi Cromwell s time.
1 was deeply interested to hear that in re
pairing the chaucul in 1S77 there was discov
ered the body of .tnne Boleyn, which was
recognized by the htorically tiny neuk, and
by the iact that the body lay just In the spot
described in the burial registry; also Were
discovered the bonei of a big man, which be
longed beyond dout t to the Ui fated Duke of
Monmouth. These were reverently reburled
in their long, long t esting place.
Upon the wuii, and p recurved within a
glass case, I saw the three coffin plates of the
noblemen last dect pitated upon Tower mi'
Lords rTilmarao-ik, Lovet and Balmarino.

plain little font dates back to the reign of

- Not aatUfled with my morning's round 1
went the next night to have a chat with the
deputy chaplain cf tue tower, Mr. Foster,
who told me many interesting little facta,
some of which are mentioned above. To my
surprise he told me that the tower is not sup
posed to be haunted, nor Is there any ghostly
traditions hanging round this spot. Just be

But the silence, pregnant with such memo

A RECEPTION TO LINCOLN.
Daa Dougherty Hud to Ma" a Speech on
By reason of being his birthplace, Philadel
phia claims Dan Dougherty. This claim,
however, is disputed by New York, which is
now his home, and both cities, with equal
cause, are proud of him. Aa an orator, Mr.
Douirhertv's rcnutAtinn i Tinrirmal ! mon.
stories are told of the readiness of his elo
quence. Perhaps the most striking instance
of this faculty waa afforded at the time of
President Lincoln's visit to the great fair of
the sanitary conimisHio'n in Philadelphia in
I8tt4, as tbe guest of the Union league.
Morton McMichael, whose fame as a fluent
speaker still lives wherever he was beard;
Charles Gibbons and several other leading
innmbers of the league, ware upon the com
mittee of reception, and Mr. McMichael had
prepared a brilliant address of woleoma By
some mischance Prcsideut Lincoln arrived
ahead of time, and quietly proceeded to a
hotel, after his usual unobU-usive fashion.
He was immediately pounced upon by a
Mr. Webster, a gonial, jolly "man about
town," who knew everybody, and was occa
sionally over officious. Taking it for grauted
that it was all right, Mr. Lincoln stepped into
the carriage which Mr. Webster bad in wait
ing and was driven to tbe fair. When the
committee of reception called at the hotel to
wait upon him, tie was gone, as the clerk
said, with "a committee from the Union
"Impossible," said Mr. McMichael. "We
are the committee."
To follow In hot chaee was all they could
do, but Mr. Webster was ou the watch, and
as the well known group entered tno fair
room by one door, ha took the president out
of anothor, and drove Straight to the Union
league, where the members, minus the com
mittee, were assembled to do honor to the
The committee, boiling over with wrath,
gave chase; vainly, for by this time the
streets were packed with a danao crowd,
anxious for a sight of Mr. Lincoln. It was
Impossible to drive a carriage through the
crowd, and at Twelf Ui and Chestnut streets
they were obliged to got out and fight thoir
way on foot, inch by inch. Meantime, at the
Union league everything was upset for lack
of Mr. McMichael and the eloquent address
too safely stowed away In his pocket.
Mr. Doughnrty was oueof the members
anxiously watching for the committee which
did not come. At last, growing desperate,
some one called him aside and said: "Don,
this wont da McMichael isnt bore, and
somebody must say something. You're the
only fellow who can do it, and you must."
In vain Mr. Dougherty protested he was
"totally unprepared," etc., etc, and beggod
to be excused. "Mr. McMichael was ex
pected to speak, and they ought to wait for
him." He was pushed to tbe front and intro
"Mr. President, you will be addressed on
behalf the Union league of Philadelphia, by
Mr. Daniel Dougherty."
. Mr. Dougherty was absolutely trembling
with stage fright, and his pallor was a sight
to behold, but tfo made tbe speech, and Presi
dent Lincoln said afterward that be had sel
dom listened to such a torrent of oratory.
"I have never overcome a droad of rising
to address an audience, however small," sail
Mr. Dougherty, a few days ego. "Even
when 1 rise before a jury, I would feel grate
ful if the floor would open and swallow me.
I want to pit away. My Hps are dry, my
hands tremble and I feel myself turn pale.
After I gt started I iose myself in my sub
ject. This feeling gradually wears away,
and I soon forget these disagreeable symp
toms in my absorption in the work before
me." New York Star.
Regulations on Danith Railways.
Every one who has traveled in Denmark
has noticed the enormous number of guard
houses along tbe railroads, and tbe fact that
women usually signal the trains. As a meas
ure of economy man and wile are employed
by tbe state, tbe former as track walker and
the latter aa guard. The rules specify the re
lationship to exist between these two classes
of employes, and roles are made to be obeyed.
When it happens that either dies tbe sur
vivor has Just aix weeks in which to find
another partner. Neglect to do so Is
disobedience, punished with dismissal
The employment of brother, sister
or servant to fill the vacancy is not
allowed. Tho guard or track walker must
marry in six weeks or leave. A case of the
kind occurred recently near the old town of
Ribe, on the German frontier. The stricken
widower petitioned tho government to allow
him an extra week or two, alleging that his
work of walking all day along the railroad
track did not give Mm a chance to look far a
wife, but his request was refused aa In Itself
an Infraction of discipline. The hapless
widower hod only six days of grace left, but
ne aid not want to lose his job and went
skirmishing with such energy that before the
end of the fifth he had a new wife flagging
the trains. Rehoboth Sunday Herald.

Philadelphia will not be at a loss to learn
the time of day or night after the bis: clock
that is to ornament tbe tower of tbe public
Dnucung is put into position. A person can
form some idea of its Immensity when in
fluential clockmakers say that it will take a
whole calendar year to place the clock ma
chinery in the tower after the building shall
have been completed. The bell is to weigh
between 20,000 and 5,000 pounds, second
only in weight to tbe great Montreal cathe
dral bell, which weighs 88,000 pounds, and its
peelings are calculated to be heard even to
the most distant parts of the city. Tbe West
minster chimes will be used, ringing on the
quarter, half, three-quarters and hour. The
center of the dial (twenty-five feet to diame
ter) will be 881 feet above the street. In or
der to distinguish tbe time at night the dial
win be illuminated by electricity, so that the
position of the hands can be located from any
point to the city. The minute hand is to be
12 feet and the hour hand 9 feet to length,
while the Roman figures on tbe dial will each
measure 2 f oet B Inches to length. A steam
engine will be placed to tbe tower to wind up
the giant timepiece each day. All to all, it
will be an immense affair, and a fitting em
blem to the giant building now in course of
erection. Jeweler's Review.
To Protest Musician' Fingers.
A simple and inexpensive device for the
protection ot the fingers of musicians while
playing on stringed instruments, such as the
guitar and harp, has been patented. It con
sists of a curved strip of metal adapted to re
ceive the end of tbe finger or thumb, and
provided with a covering of leather or
analogous material. To the outer surface
of this covering is applied a mixture of Venice
turpentine and piast pitch,' preferably mixed
to about the proportions of three parts of
turpentine and one of pitch, tbe design being
to thus render the playing more comfortable
and insure a more positive action of tbe finger
upon the string. Kew York Home Journal.

If yon have made np your mind to buy
Hood's Sarsaparllla do not be induced to take
any other. Hood's Sarsapartlla is a peculiar
medicine, possessing, by virtue ot its peouuaf
combination, proportion, and preparation,
curative power superior to any other article.
A Boston lady who knew whnt she wanted,
and whose example is worthy imiutlon, tells
her experience below:
" In one store where I went to buy Hood's
Sarsaparllla the elerk tried to induce me buy
their own Instead of Hood's; hetoldmetheir's
would last longer; that I might take It on ten
days' trial; that it I did not like it I need not
pay anything, etc. But he could not prevail
on me to change. I told him I knew what
Hood's Sarsaparllla was. I had taken It, was
satisfied with it, and did not want any other.
When I began taking Hood's Sarsaparllla
I was feeling real miserable, suffering
a great deal with dyspepsia, and so weak
that at Umes I eould hardly stand. I looked,
and bad for some time, like a person In con
sumption. Hood's Sarsaparllla did me so
much good that I wonder at myself sometimes,
and my friends frequently speak of It." Mrs.
