Balisbcky. Aue. 30, 1890. Scotland
raises a great many sbeep smaller in
size than those of England but, perhaps,
more delicious as mutton, though I be
lieve Welsh mutton, still smaller than the
Scotch, is considered the best, and brinies
the highest price. The cuteness of the
Scotch coliey dogs in herding the sheep
is proverbial, and we had an amusing il
lustration of their usefulness while wait
ing at a station in watching them assist
in getting some sheep into cars for trans
portation. The sheep would break away
from the Bock and run down the road at
lightning speed almost, the dogs follow
ing them pell mell, seizing them by the
hind leg or by the wool nu the back and
swinging them around face about, and
then driving them back to the Mock. I
notice all the cattle cars are whitewashed
on the floors and sides as soon as the cat
tie are taken from them; also the cattle
yards which are stone floored, with stone
walls or iron rail, are washed with lime,
floors Dd walls, when tbe cattle are re
moved, all according to an' act of psrlia
meDt in order to prevent cattle disease.
Our own farmers and cattle dealers might
profit by this custom.
Edinburgh is a tine city of 250,000, full
of activity ou business days, and as quiet
as a grave on Sunday. After continental
Sundays this Scotch Sunday is very rest
ful no drinking places open, not even a
restaurant, and if one wants a meal he
must go to the hotels to get it; but on
other days one sees drinking enough, and
I saw more drunkenness in Scotland in
four days than during the whole of the
rest of my trip of three months on the
continent and in England. Saturday is
half holiday in Scotland, and the cars are
crowded with people on pleasure excur
sions, and so many of them "full" of
whisky that travel on Saturday after
noon is not pleasant to a stranger. It
has been a very cold wet season, both in
England and Scotland, and crops are in a
poor condition generally. Yesterdiy the
temperature here in Salisbury was 45 tle
grees only, and there was a slight frost
the previous day. The castle in Edin
burg is garrisoned by troops, who look
very picturesque in their bright Tartan
costumes, but their bare legs looked cold
to a foreigner. A magniticent view of
the city is obtained from the castle.which
is open at certain hours to anybody, and
within its walls are seen the ancient re
galia of Scotland crown and sceptre,
and sword, etc., etc. Here one can vis
it Queen Mary's room in which James
VI was born, and here is Queen Margar
et's chapel, the smallest and oldest in
Scotland, built in the year of our Lord
1100, and still in fine condition. There
is a fine monument to Neison, tbe top of
which is 450 feet above the sea.
and in the princess' garden stands the
magnificent monument to Sir Walter
Scott. Old Holly rood castle is also here
with all its historical associations, the
suite of rooms of Mary containing the
beds and other furniture which she used,
her work box and many fine portraits of
the unfortunate but beautiful queen.
Lord Darnley's rooms and tbe hall, or lit
tie entry where Iiiggio was murdered so
ba-mly. Arthur's Seat, 823 feel.a high hill
overlooking the city, affords a magnifi
cent view of city, country and Forth.and
in the near distance the great bridge of
Forth is distinctly visible to the naked eve
On the way to Arthur's Seat you pass the
ruins of St. Anthony's chapel, associated
with incidents in the "Eieart of Mid
lothian. and from tbe well of the Saint
one does not fail to refresh himself with
the really excellent water which still flow
as of old, clear and cold.
The old Cathedral church of St. Giles
the ancient cathedral of the Scottish
church, is now a Presbyterian church
though its style and furniture, sanctuary
choir, and nave, altar and chapels seem
rather incongruous with that type of
religious lire. Quite recently there has
been discovered tbe supposed arm bone
of St. Giles, an ancient relic of this ca
thedral, and the authorities are in quite
quandary as to what they shall do with
It. This arm hone is known to have been
in existence, but it place of hiding has
beeu lost for several centuries, it remains
to be seen what the Presbyterians will do
with it. The new cathedral of the
Scottish Episcopal church is a mag-
nincent specimen or the work of Sir
Gilbert Scott who did so much in
the restoration of ancient churches
in England We attended even song
on bUDday at 7 p. m. and found the
church packed with people, not less than
2.W0 being present. The choral service
was beautifully and devoutly rendered
and the immense congregation seemed to
be at home. The Episcopal church in
Scotland seems to be in a vigorous condi
tion of healthy life and activity and seems
to oe in a condition to claim tbe promise,
"a nine one shall become a thousand,
1 be rdinburgh Exposition is in full
tide of popularity, and here in the pretty
and convanient buildings erected for this
purpose one sees stalls filled with goods
from various parts of the world. India,
ihina, Japan, thecontinent.Great Britain,
etc., tbe finest of fabrics in linen and lace
from old Ireland, in wools from Scotland
looms spinning wool and linen, etc..
china and other nottcrv. lewelrv and
corals, confectionery, bread and cakes of
all kinds in procesf manufacture, with
numerous stands for the sale of every
variety ot liquors Known to man, and
these last seemed to be well patronized.
A magnificent display of locomotive
engines and railway carriages from
Great Britain, electrical apparatus
oi me very latest improvements, in
eluding an electric railway, both
storage battery and overheadj wire.
The only contingent from the United
mates which 1 saw was an exhibition of
t.ilifornia wines, and an outside shed
decorated with ears of corn from Ne
braska, where hot corn bread was served
constantly with maple syrup, also mush
and milk and pop corn. We felt bound
for the honor of our country to stop at
this exhibit, and I can testify from per-
sonal experience that I never ate better
corn bread in my life, though it was made
by a Scotch lassie. I visited a soup
kitchen in Edinburgh supplied by the
corporation, where by the payment of one
penny (two cents) one can get a good
breakfast of porridge and milk, and a din
ner of good wholesome beef soup with
vegetables, with all the bread one desires.
Men and women of the poorer class were
sitting at the tables, each with a good
sized tin basin of soup and the odor of
the dish was certainly very appetizing.
The man at the door who took tbe pen
nies, said the soup was made from nice
fresh beef , etc., and that there were sev
eral snch kitchens in the city. About
'Sixty persons took dinner daily at this
place, and children were coming and
going with small buckets, carrying soup to
their homes and to their fathers at work,
for a penny a basin. I wanted to stop
and try a basin, but my friend declined
and went out so I was fain to follow.
Roslyn chapel, near the city, is a fine
specimen of early decorated work and has
the famous "apprentice column" which
cost the poor man his life. On our route
to Edinburgh we stopped for two hours
at Melrose abbey.
No description can do justice to this
beautiful ruin, but your readers will find
a description of it in the "Lay of tbe Last
Minstrel." Much of tbe earring is as
fresh as when just done. Within iu hal
lowed precincts lie the remains of kings,
nobles and priests, Alex II., of Scotland,
several of the great race of Douglas. Sir
David Brewster's grave is in the church
yard, while before the high altar is buried
the heart of King Robert Bruce.
We leave Edinburgh for Sterling by
rail, getting a fine view of Sterling castle,
tbe bridge of Allan and tbe fields of Ban
nockburn. The castle is a hoary old ruin
and within its walls was born James II.
while James V was both born and
tcrowned here. In the "Douglass room"
James II assassinated William, earl of
Douglass, and the window is seen through
which his body was hurled to the garden
below, A few miles from Sterling we
leave tbe train at Aberfovle and take
tbe Btage outside seat for the lovelv
ride through the Trossacbs, up hill and
down, four mountain horses, a good driv
er and fair weather to start with, though
a small shower came up on the road, of
course. We pass over and around the
mountains, all clothed at this season in
full purple heather of gorgeous hue, sheep
grazing, and gay parties on foot coming
and going through the beautiful Troa
sachs, passing Loch Venacbar, Loch Ach
ray and the Brigg of Tenk, and the Tros
sacbs, a wild gorge or pass extending for
a mile or more, with lovely timber and a
grand view of Ben Venne. 2.3S6 feet
high. At Stronachlacbar Pier we take
the little steamer on Loch Katrine, pisc
ine the Silver Strand and Ellen's Isle of
"The Lady of the Lake." After a charm
ing sail of three quarters of an hour, we
again take stage for an hour to Inver
snaid, at the head of Loch Lomond, pass
ing on the road the stone cottage where
Helen MacGregor, Rob Roy's wife, was
born. The falls at Inversnaid are close
to the hotel and are the scene of tVatia
worth's "Highland girl," a lovely succes
sion of rushing waters overhung hj a
bridge from which one can view tbem to
tbe best advantage. Over Loch Lo
mond is a two hours' sail, with lien Lo
mood in full view, 3,193 feet, many
lovely islands and hills and mountain-)
a'l around you. The pride of Scottish
lakes is Ben Lomond, and deservedly so,
too. At Ballock you again take the train
for Glasgow, passing through Dumbarton
with its famous old castle on a rock rising
abruptly at 5C0 feet above the Clyde,
passing to Glasgow through the lovely
"Vale of Lcven." Glasgow is a city of
over one half million people and famous,
as your readers all know, for its ocean
steam ship building. A stav of only one
night did not permit me to see much of
the city, but its active life was evident
even during our short stay. lis railway
stations are among the finest we have
seen anywhere, and the public buildings
are magnificent in style and proportion

There is more catarrh in this section of
the country than all other diseases put to-
gemer, ana until the last tew years was
supposed to be incurable. For a great
many years the doctors pronounced it a
local disease, and prescribed local reme
dies, and by constantly failing to cure
with local treatment, pronounced it incur
able. . Science has proven catarrh to be a
constitutional disease, and therefore re
quires constitutional treatment. Hall's
Catarrh Cure, manufactured by F. J.
Cheney & Co., Toledo, Ohio, is the ODly
constitutional cure on tbe market. It is
taken internally in doses from ten drcps
to a teaspoonful. It acts directly upon
the blood and mucous surfaces of tbe sys
tem. They offer one hundred dollars for
any case it fails to cure. Send for circu
lars and testimonials. Address,
