The castle of 3l ohantmtsl was built on a
height overlooking the Bosphorua at its nar
rowest point, and just where Darius threw
across his famous t ridge of boats for the pas
sage of his Porsian invaders. It was planned
some two thousand years after that invasion
by the young ajid ambitious Mohammed II,
whose bold and determined nature prompted
him to do and dai e far more than bad ever

That a fortillcati m like this and in this lo

Asia Minor, ulong the shores of tho Marmora
snuioe muck sea., arour.a icomedia bay,
and w hen all the m n and material he could
command in his own dominion were collected
he bad uo scruples about appropriating any
thing he could lay his hands on iu this vicin
ity. We are told that when digging to lay
these walls he unea -thed massive foundations
of a former castle and baths, which he at
once utilized. It v as during the winter of
1451-52 that men toid materiul were hurriod
here from all jwirts of his realm. Then the
effeminate and luxurious rulers of Byzantium
were first awakenc 1 to their peril and great
consternation prevailed in Constantinople;
but so heedless and given to procrastination
had they become tbat, although it was begun
March 29, H'd, aid doubtless occupied at
least four months, t be sultan was interrupted
hut once in his woric, nnd that was when the
Church of St. Mich ool at Arnatukue was l
InR dragged away.
The importance of this site for a fortifica
tion could hardly tut overestimated, as itaf
furded a short and easy passago for troops
between bays that were protected from the
violent winds and waves of both tho Black
sea and the Marmot a. The foundations were
laid in such a fori: 1 as to spell the sultan's
name. It was to hi ve four gates, facing tho
four cardinal poin a of the compass. The
circumference of the central tower on the
top was J5 feet; height, 83 feet; inside di
ameter, 40 feet ; thi 'kness of wall, 10 or more
feet. Tho outside diameter of two of the
huge towers was i.tiout O) feet. One thou
sand musons, each w ith two assistants, worked
on the outside of the walls, as many on the
inside, as well as countless carriers.
FATK OF THE WEARY WORKMAN.
A large number of troojw were stationed to
protect tho workmen. The suitan was pres
ent all the time t push the work with all
possible dispatch. Tho building of the three
larger towers was intrusted to three of the
sultan's ablest genei als. Tho Turks of today
will tell you with i n air of great solemnity
that the dark sculptured head you see high
up in the maive wall of the white tower
yonder is truly the iuummy.of a workman
who refused to perf rm his tusk, and the gen
eral in charge had him walled in at that Im
mense hoight. The cannon upon these walls
and upon the sea to -er carried balls weigh
ing 6(J0 pounds.
Tou may see man y of these great balls of
granite still piled uj. on the quay beneath the
castles. The sultan placed a garrison com
posed of 4U0 picked men within tho fortifica
tion when cornplet.-d. Many of their de
scendants still live tl ere, and eke out a scanty
subsistence by follov-ing the peaceful occupa
tion of fishermen. In one of the Btrong
towers Mohammed II placed his treasure,
another was used a i a mugazine, and others
were used as prisons, not only for persons of
rank, but after a tim fnr tlm rimartarl T--
nisariee. Today thete white towers stand Ilk

MUtates ol Parisian Experts.
The annals of the Hotel Drouot abound in
stories of queer mistakes made by so called
experts, writes Theodore ChUd. How one
mistook the title of a picture, "Salvator
Mundi," for tho nameof a "Venetian painter,
rival of Salvator Rosa;" how another at
tributed to Velasquez, who died in 130, a
portrait of Louis XV, who was born in 1710;
how another offered a picture of a woman
washing dishes as a "Portrait of Rubens'
Wife," by himself, and volunteered the ex
planation, that "as everybody knew, Rubens
married his cook." The men who are at the
head of thoir profession are incapable of such
gross iguorance as this; nevertheless, ever,
experts of the highest grades are fallible.
Thus quite recently an eminent Farisian
dealer offered without hesitation 30,000 francs
for an antique Persian mosque lamp, fabri
cated a few years ago at Vaugirard by the
famous Brocart; aud still more recently the
most eminent expert in Paris asked in a sale
the modest sum of 100 francs for a hawthorn
pot, which, to his astonishment, sold for 4,600
francs, and afterward went to England,
where It was resold to a New York collector
for $2,000. New York Star.
His Name Against Him.
The Hon. Daniel Dougherty entertained a
few friemls at dinner In this city, and for
three hours charmed them with bis fund of
anecdote. Three brighter hours never passed,
from all I have been told. "My name has
always been against me," he said, as he
turned the conversation to himself. "A few
years ago I was invited to be one of a party
of prominent people who made an inspection
of the state penitentiary of Pennsylvania.
In going through one of the corridors an at
tendant had occasion, not knowing who I
was, to call out the name Dan Dougherty,
and in the twinkle of an eye three of the
hardest looking criminals I ever saw popped
their heads out and answered 'Here,' " Mr.
Dougherty's guests roared at this story, for
he had told it as it can never be made to ap
pear in type. They had hardly recovered
from holding their hands on their sides when
he added: "There has been a Dan Dougherty
hung in Pennsylvania every year since I can
remember. " the plates fairly danced on the
table. Chicago MaiL
A Young Dianik
Addie Vareles, a young girl about 10 years
of age, who lives with her parents on the Ca
laveras river, captured a deer one day, and
at once became the heroine of the county.
The girl heard some dogs barking in the direc
tion of the river, and ran down to where the
dogs had a buck deer hayed in a bole of
water. She returned to the house, and the
only weapon she could find was a butcher
knife. Her presence encouragrel the dogs,
and when she reappeared on the scene the
dogs sprang at the deer, and with the aid of
Addie the buck was thrown, and hi loss time
than it w ill take to tell the story the deer's
throat was cut from car to far. Addie says
it was no small task to hold the animal down
with its throat cut, for she knew that to let
go of the buck before it was dead would en
danger her own life. Sou Audreas (Cal.)
ftaa and Ventilation.
Where gas is used the safety of health sim
ply depends on securing full, free and perfect
ventilation. The necessity for this precau
tion is highly apparent when we think of the
impurities which gas sends forth into the at
mosphere, aud when we reflect on the evil
which Ls wrought to health when these im
purities are iiihalnd. If we can be assured of
the ventilation of houses in which gas is em
ployed, there need be no hesitation in em
ploying this medium for any domestic pur
pose. In apartments where gas forms the
illuminating medium there is often a decided
lack of precautions in securing the free and
perfect removal of the deleterious products of
gas combustion. Herald of Health.
The lottery ticket craze has developed all
manner of superstitions. A group of several
staid citizens of the lode made a pool for the
purchase of tickets, and after it was com
pleted it was suggested that a negro and
Chinaman be Included in the pool to bring
good luck. The suggestion was forthwith
acted upon by unanimous consent and a com
mittee appointed to bring in a native of
Africa and one of China. The committee re
turned a few minutes later accompanied by
a descendant of the Dark Continent, dusky
as a moonless night, and a subject of the

removed. This shows the danger of depart

know, is a much safer place of deposit for

A VALUABLE EXPERIENCE.
One of the most Worthy Men of the State

Truths drawn from his Long Life.
I was passing along a street In Brooklyn re
cently when I caw avenerable and benevolent
looking old gentleman arslstmg a younger and
feeble man along the street. The acene was inch
n onusual one, taut I volunteered my help to the
elderly mau, and learned that he was the well
known doctor T. S. Wilcox, and that he was help
ing the vonuc man, who was a consumptive, to an
institution of which he bad charge. I accompa
nied them, assisting as best I eoold. aad askd tbe
elderly gentleman some questions touching his
past history and his rich ex peri en oei of life. He
replied that he thought he con'd pat the matter
more clearly la writing, and at my request gave
me the following statement:
"I have been in the gereral practice of roedi
cine for fif t y years, bebut now over seventy years
of age, and have charge of the Sanitarian boopitai
located at No. 103 Lawrence street, Brooklyn, N.
Y. Darin my lifetime of practice 1 have found
that more than one-third of all death arise from
consumption of tbe inngs or some lung trouble.
For a century doctors have tried to reach and over
come this disease, but have never succeeded. Few
people who have lung trouble know it ; few peo
ple realise their danger nntll it ia too lata. After
a thorough trial of all known remedies, I have set
tied down to the nae of pore stimulants for all
lung difficulties, and, I nod aot hing o para or val

paper lor advantages, possessed onl? by this whis
