Heidelberg Reached and Described.
A Visit ta the Tomb of Charlcmaact
The Wwwderfiil t'hareh ot II I'raala
ad the 9lagBlflent Cathedral at
Cioe Oil for arrmber(.
Special Correspondence to the Attocs:
Heidelberg. July 17 Ea route from
Brassols to Cologne one passes through
Alz la Chapelle, once the dwelling place
ot Charlemagne, and his tomb Is beneath
the floor of the wonderful octagon nave
of the catbredral which be built a mar
velous structure of grandeur and solid
ity. Two hundred years after bis death
the tomb was opened, and the mighty
monarch was found clothed and crowned,
and seated in bis chair of state. The
tomb was closed and has never been re
opened. The Roll bouse, or city ball, is
venerable in age with wonderful
frescoes representing the various scenes
in the history of the principality. Mod
ern heating apparatus is being placed in
the building which is open to the public
for one mark, and one is carried back
hundreds of years in memory to the
stirring scenes of the fourteenth century.
In the catbredral of Cologne is the fa
mous shrine of the three kings w ho brought
their gifts to the Saviour. The shrine is
about three feet by two, and two inches
in height. The front is of solid gold, the
back and sides of Silver gilt, and all in
laid with precious stones of immense size
and value. In the treasury are also
ancient testaments and rroziers, rings,
seals, manuscripts, books illustrated, the
top of the staT of St. Peter, an endless
array or articles of enormous value and
great antiquity. The cathredral is, as
you know, the roost perfect specimen of
gothic in the world, beautiful beyond de
scription, without any of the ugly tombs
which disfigure most of the churches in
England and the continent. The church
of 11 Urania contains the bones of the
saint and also of the 11,000 virgins who
were murdered with her. These bonis
are in an enormous stone sar
copnaeu9, some twenty or more
in number, in the altars, walls
and ceilings everywhere. Small
openings covered with glass enable one
to see the bones. In the treasury attached
to the church is the shrine of the saint.
and around the wall9 of the treasury the
bones are built in the plaster rows of
skulls and other parts of the body. The
leg of the saint stands on the altar in a
silver gilt receptacle, also bones of other
persons in great numbers. Here are
seen the foot of Saint Stephen, the
loin of our blessed Lord, two thorns
from his crown, the finger of
the first arch-bishop of Cologne and in
numerable other relics of departed wor
thies men and women. One of the
water jars from the marriage feast is also
shown, with an elaborate pedigree by the
sacristan of the church, who said be bad
acted in that capacity for thiity-elght
years. Think of living among these
bones for that length of time. I do not
vouch for the authenticity of the legend
of the bones, but certainly they are of
very great practical value, thousands of
people having visited them annually for
years, and the income must bave been and
is toifay something enormous. Now it
occurs to me that in all parishes there are
a good many people nominally members,
who pay nothing whatever to the fund of
the parish. If these people could only be
persuaded to leave their bones to the par
ish, they might be reverently cared for
and in time perhaps bring in quite a rev
enue, and in this way many persons might
be of some practical use and value after
death if not before. An unique bridge of
boats spans the Rhine at Cologne, which
is used very extensively by the people.
The smells of the streets are something
awful nothing any where in the world
like them in strength or variety. You
take a boat at Cologne at 8:4.5 a. m. for
Bengia or Maygiance, reaching Bengia at
7 p. m. in time for the train to Heidel
berg or Frankfort. The boats are fine
steamers, long and narrow and very
swift. The views have often been de
scribed and never exaggerated, I am very
sure, trie oia castles are numerous
enough to please anybody and very inter
esting. The sides of the mountains are
covered with vines mile after mile the
whole day's ride, and one wonders how
anyone can stand on such steep slopes
long enouh to gather the fruit. Heavy
terraces of stone work are built every
where, running in ever direction, up
hill and sideways and across, miles and
miles of them, and the labor and ingenu
ity excites one's wonder. I bave often
wondered where the wine all came from;
1 now wonder where It all goes. Frank
fort on the Maine is an exceedingly inter
esting commercial city, well built up with
modern buildings, and containing many
very ancient ones. Most quaint they are
with their high steep gables and project
ing stories; houses on either side nearly
touching towards the top. Goethe's
bouse is here with memorials of the poet
which are exhibited for a consideration.
Fine palm gardens, museum of pictures,
statues, etc., a very ancient rath bouse
and the old bridge with whose legends
some of the boys at school may be famil
iar. The ride from Frankfort to Heid
elberg is through a charming coun
try under a high state of cultiva
tion, and what can one add to what
has been already said of this beauti
ful city with its ancient and honor
able university, its castle and the beauti
ful walks and old drives, the "boys" of
the university in their many colored caps
of white, blue, green, yellow, etc., indi
cating, I presume, the class or school to
which they belong. Some of these youths
are slashed with sword cuts in duels for
which the German universities are fa
mous. Today one young student was
seen who had seventeen distinct
slashes on Lead, face, etc. Great
heroes they are thought to be. Some
of them are awfully disfigured in
consequence. The castle is in far better
state of repair than I expected and one
is shown all over it, with its museum of
paintings, seals, books, etc., its big tier
holding 45.000 gallons of wine, old armor
and other old iron in endless profusion.
Here is shown the largest stone axe in the
The Teeckar runs through the town and
has junction with the Rhine some dis
tance below. From the Koenigstadt or
King's Seat 90fi feet above the castle one
baa a most extensive view of the valley
of the Veeckar and Rhine, the city, etc.
Thousands of acres of grain are seen,
every foot of giound in the valley being
under the finest state of cultivation.
Wolfsbrunnen or Wolfs Fountain is in a
dark but lovely dell some two miles from
the castle and your writer enjoyed a walk
this a. m. of ten miles to the fountain,
then up the mountain to the seat and
down to the castle and town. There is a
road also to all these in fine condition,
as well as a footpath. A month in Heid
elberg would be too short for any one
who bad time to spare. Tomorrow we
are off for ancient Nurremberg.

"Why, now I cannot get enough to

appetite, but took Hood's Saraaparilla.

to the point of disregarding the summons
of the medium it doesn't care "a rap."
JHONORS TO MR. BURST.
Ro-k Iaiamd'a Member of the Lower
Henae of the Irclalataire Dlatln
arw.laiB.esi Hlnase-lf at prtnflld. ;
Hon. E. W. Hurst,Ro:k Island's mem
ber of the lower house of the legislature,
arrived borne from Springfield this morn
ing, the extra session of the legislature
having adjourned sine die. Mr. Hurst
distinguished himielf by the stand he
took and the speech he made in support
of his position on the world's fair bill,
and came out on the winning side.. The
Chicago Daily 2Vhm had the following in
its Springfield report of the 81st:
' The chief discussion was on an amend
ment offered by Mr. Craig prohibiting
the fair directors from paying any debts
until the $5,000,000 bonds have been re
deemed. Messrs. Mooney, Walsh, Stos
kopf and Browne, of LaSalle, debated
the question at some length. Mr. Hurst,
of Rock Island, made one of the best
speeches of the day in opposition to it,
and was heartily congratulated by Presi
dent Gage. Vice-President Bryan, Ben
Butterwortb and otber visitors who lis
tened to the discussion. The plea had
been made for protection for the taxpay
ers of Chicago. Mr. Hurst declared they
had ample protection in the wise pro
vision that had been made to allow them
to tax themselves or refuse to do so. He
bad no sympathy with the spirit that
prompted criticism of the world's fair
management as a private corpora'ioo or
a combination of speculators. It was
not the spirit that had called this extra
session of the general assembly.
It was not tne spirit in which the citi
zens of Illinois bailed the selection of
their metropolis for the site for the Col
umbian exposition when the empire city
and the national caoital, as well as St.
Louis, were active and energetic compet
itors for the prize. Not alone the residents
of Chicago, but the people of this mag
nificent prairie state as a whole, were
thus given a trun to fulfill, to see that
the exposition is made an unqualified
success. They owe a debt ot thanks to
these enterprisiug men of Chicago who
bad undertaken to cirry forward this
gigantic enterprise. They would uphold
the hands of the directory and carry out
the pledge of aiding the fair by rejecting
this and all other unfriendly proposi
Mr. Merritt, who was not present to
participate in the proceedings last week,
also vigorously condemned Mr. Craig's
proposition. The tax payers of Chicago
were represented by thirty members on the
floor of the bouse, and it was an insult to
say they were not, unless these represen
tatives were nonentities. He exposed the
fallacy of collecting a tax and then pay
ing it back before any use had been made
Said he: "The eyes of the world are
on Chicago, and every nation is prepar
ing to visit it when this grand exposition
takes place, and here we have the specta
cle of members of the house offering pet
ty amendments and substitutes which can
only occasion delay"
Mr. Craig's resolution was defea'ed
overwhelmingly and the joint resolution
adopted by a vote of 143 to 2. The neg
atives were Srhuerk and Walsh. There
were eight absent or not voting Allen
of Warren. Davis, Hunter of Knox, Kent,
Morassy, Padon, Rice of Pern, and
Wilke ot Will.
While the Springfield Aw of the 30th
referred to Mr. Hurst's speech as follows:
Hurst, of Rock Island, made a splen
did speech in the house this morning
Mr. Hurst ought to be kept in the legis
lative service of the state so long as we
must have any democrats, lie is court'
eous, clear, logical and uses no unneccs
j sary words.
Again on Friday Mr. Hurst made i
strong point in the meeting of the boose
judiciary committee in tixiug the South
Park bonds. The Chicago Herald sys
Mr. Crafts made a speech, taking the
position that he opposed the issuance of
the park bonds because the people of the
park district should not be taxed for the
improvement of Jackson Park for the
purposes contemplated. The property
owners in the immediate vicinity, he said,
should bear the burden by special assess
raent. Mr. Hurst took Mr. Crafts to tack
for his opposition to the section in con
troversy, avering that be wss not actuated
so mi'oh by his solicitude for the tax
payers as by the seeming desire to reopen
the site question. The people of the park
district, he believed, would be fully pro
tected by the addition of a clause provid
ing that the question of issuing the bonds
should be first submitted to a vote of the
people. It would be injudicious to re
open the question of site at this time.
That really was all there was in the effort
to change the bill and this legislature bav
ing once decided that it would not inter
fere in the site controversy, it would be
unwise, in bis opinion, for the members
to permit themselves to be made tools of
by those gentlemen coming from the
West Side who had undertaken to reopen
the site question. Besides, the issuing of
the park bonds was not mandatory, but
was left to the discretion of the commis
The vote showed a defeat for the
Cra.tt folks by 13 to 12. and fcgaio Mr.
Hurst was recorded on the Bide of victory
he did much in bringing about.

Further Illustration of tlie Need of
a Fire System.

Hark Inland Ceaneil Already Keal
Isea. At 10:45 last night fire wts discovered
in a shed on the premises f Mr. Virgil
Warner, on Second avenue, near Tenth
strest. An alarm was Bent in. but it was
so indefinite that the firemen could not
locate the fire, although they turned out
promptly, and before they did fiaally dis
cover it it was extinguished by a garden
hose in time to confine it to the building
in which it originated. While it was de
stroyed, a barn on the premises of Capt
Durham adjoining it barely escaped, and
had there been a high wnd it would
surely have caught and the fire spread to
other buildings before the department ar
The incident again ill us ti a ted the ab
solute necessity of the alarm system and
paid equipment such as he city is de
termined to provide as soon as the new
tire house is erected on Flai iron square.
All cities the size ot Rock Island, and
even smaller, have either looked after
this question ot fire depart neut equip
ment or are moving in that direction.
Clinton has had a paid department for a
year now, and here comet Muscarine
with evidences of sensible awakening.
Read from the Journal of yesterday:
There is one thing that has forcibly im
pressed itself upon the minds of many of
the people of this city and tliat is the ur
gent necessity of a new fire alarm sys
tern. The last two or three fires we bave
bad have caused great confusion. The
system of signals do not setm to be ac
curately understood, notevea by the fire
men. Yesterday when the fire alarm
sounded it was difficult to d scern in jnst
which ward the fire was located, and eyen
after this was done, scarcely any one
knew where it was. To say the tire is in
the First ward is not very definite, espec
ially when the ward is so large. It in
variably necessitates the asking of the
telephone central office for a definite lo
cation of the blaze. All this requires
time, and the loss ot time means much
headway for the flumes aid invariably
the complete destruction of a build
ing or two. Some other system should
be adopted. The council should put
in an electric alarm system, 25 or
30 boxes to begin with, and then
when an alarm is turned in at the various
nose bouses the district may be given and
the boys can get there niuch quicker,
thus being able to do much more good.
The city must come to this sooner or later
and it is best to make it sot ner. It will
prove a paying investment in the end.
Then there is another thug that may
as well receive attention nrw. The city
should purchase a team of horses and
bave them in readiness at all times for fire
service. It is almost too much to ask the
volunteer firemen to draw a heavy hose
cart or truck up the west tills or a long
distance as was the case yesterday. " A
team of horses would prove very valua
ble in cases like yesterday', small fire.
and would not increase the expenses of
ttie city very much. He are growing
daily and sooner or later m-ist adopt
something of the kind spoken of above.

There is only one way to t ure deafness,
and that is by consiitutio lal remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed con
dition of mucous lining of the Eustach
ian tube. When this tube gets inflamed
you have a rumbling sound or imperfect
hearing, and when it is entirely closed
deafness is the result, and unless the in
flammation can be taken out and this
tube restored to ita nora al condition,
bearing will be destroyed forever. Nine
cases out of ten are cause i by catarrh,
which is nothing but an in lamed condi
