Steamship Haalk, Sept. 10. 1890.
Eoroute from Glasgow to Chester one
passes through Carlisle, a venerable city,
once a Roman station, and formerly the
seat of the ancient kines of Cumbria. It
was destroyed by the Danes in A. D- 900
and remained deaolate for two huodied
years. It was often involved in the bor
der wara between England and Scotland.
Tb old castle was built by William Rufus
and in it Mary Q'leen of 8cots was kept
a prisoner. Carlisle is now a busy com
mercial city overhung with heavy clouds
of smoke betokening its extensive tnanu
facturinx interests. The cathedral which
every tourist goes to see is of the early
13th century and has an east window
which has been called the handsomest in
the world. Much of the old glass of the
reign of Richard III still remtins.
But what shall one say of Birmingham
with its dense clouds of smoke extending
in unbroken ma,s mile after mile?
Blitcknefs and darkness enrircle it con
tinually, and the blessed sun is seldom
seen. Here one sees something of the
"working man" so called and working
women too and children, whose lives can
seldom .be brightened by "light and
sweetness." in a most literal sense. Here
are found the great interests of buttons,
steel pens, swords and guns, gold and
silver plate and jewelry, articles of brass,
bronze, iron, glass, papier mache, etc.
One loDgs to be able to have a
general holiday of a months' dura
tion proclaimed for all these people
with free ride and provisions to
the genial sunshine and grass grown
hrks of lovely Somerset. Worcester,
twenty-five miles, is nearly in the center
of England, -4rs cathedral has been most
beautifully restored and looks as fresh as
a dtty. The oldest royal tomb in Eug
lang is found here, that of King John, in
the center of the choir. We bad no time
for visiting the royal porcelain works,
but I noticed that the railway station was
embellished with Worcester tile of lovely
style and colors. Gloucester is in a lovely
vally on the Severn, a quiet city with
qu-tint buildings and a cathedral of the
elet-otu centurv. It contains one of
the line! crypts I have seen, including
three styles of architecture, and like all
the others, for a small consideration one
can hVe a long and prosy dissertation
from the berger on its many points of
excellence and superiority over all other
cathedrals. The justly celebrated Dr.
Jenner has a fine monument to his mem
ory. He shall long remember the quiet
little "Soractua Inn" where we were shel
tered, with its clean beds, comfortahle
cooking and bright landlady in her pretty
silk gown and Iacs, serving out ier,
wines and spirits to thi multitude from
her snug little den, as we watched her.
looking into the bar from our secluded
loint of observation in tbc passage way.
Un passing the law courts building
its brotwl steps and r in jc of lofty columns
1 noticed the plants and flowers covering
the entire space except the passage way.
Seeing the gate unlatched I ventured to
enter and inquire what the building was
used for. thinking it was afljwershow;
the good man in charge with bis wife,
welcomed me cordially and took me about
among the plants, at the same time telling
me that flowers, etc.. were bis hobby in f
which his wife shared, that when they j
took charge of tbe building this great
open npaee about the columns was simply j
bare stone pavement; now it was a lovely
nower garden and the pride and admira
tion of the city. I thought of Sheriff
Silvis and bis care of our court house
.grounds and how mutually agreeable he
and my friend of Gloucester might make
themselves if they, could meet on this
common ground of beautifying public
buildings in Ibis way. Bristol is a place
of great commercial importance in the
past, for many years in semi-commercial
decay and now rising again to its former
condition of prosperity, building going
on in all directions and business driving
its merchants and others. Tbe cathedra!
is In a wretched condition in every wav
and years of hard work will be required
after the departure of its present dean to
tiring its spiritual tone up to anything like
present English church life. Hsppilv he
is very old and "can't last long," as one
of tbe people told me. What a blessed
thing for the world is death. Conserva
tism is very well in a degree.but the con
servatism of old age is generally stagnas
tion in church, in state, in business and
every department of active wholesome
life. We can prize old people for what
they have accomplished, but it is well that
in the economy of life they have to give
way to younger and more active men.
who in their turn must pass away and
give place to others. Let us respect old
age and treat it with all tbe love and ten
derness of dutiful children, but let us not
permit our respect and love to hinder the
grand progress of humanity in religion,
art, science, and all the grand schemes
which God has in store for the welfare of
the race.and which in each generation suc
cessively, must from the very nature of
things be confided largely to younger
heads and hands.
Chester is one of the most interest
ing cities of England. It was one of
tbe chief military stations of the
Romans in Britain, in turn occupied
by Saxon and Dane; tbe last city to hold
out against William tbc Conqueror. In
the civil wars the city adhered to tbe
royal cause and was beseiged and taken
by tbe parliamentary forces in 1645. The
Phoenix tower on the ancient walla bears
the inscription. "King Charles stood on
this tower Sept. 21, 1015, and saw his
army defeated on Rowton Moor." The
walls completely surround the city, a cir
cuit of nearly two miles, forming a de
lightful promenade with excellent views
of the city and surrounding country. On
tbe two two main streets running at right
angles are "The Rows," a curious and
unique feature. Besides the ordinary
sidewalk of these streets there is a con
tinuous covered gallery through the front
of tbe second story of the bouses. On
this "upstairs street" all the better classes
of shops are situated, the others being
unrierneavh on the level of the highway.
There are many old bouses with their
timber posts and carved gables remain
ing. Among tnese is ine mansion or
palace of the old earls of Derby, the
oldest and tbe richest carved on the front.
The cathedral is the old Abbey church of
Saint Weyburgh. There have been exten
sive restorations of late years and the
work is still going on.
Bt. John s church is still more ancient
than tbe cathedral the eleventh century
an admirable expression of Norman
architecture. The choir and transepts
are in rums, hut serve to show the mag
nificence of tbe original building. Wells
is a lovely and secluded place, very an
cient and very sleepy, hut lis cathedral is
one of the largest and most splendid in
the kingdom. The "close" retains its
antique character completely. The moat
about the bishop's palace is overhung by
monstrous elms mingled with ivy growing
on the high turreted interior walls; and
has a thoroughly feudal look with its
craw bridge and castellated gateway, and
reflections of all in the water. An im
mense natural well or spring is within tbe
grounds and furnishes water to tbe beau
tiful fountain in the public square, be
sides being need for a lovely waterfall in
tbe palace grounds. " As the bishop was
absent we were conducted through tbe
grounds by tbe gardener, and were sur
prised and delighted at tbe extent of
lawn, flower and vegetable gardens,
wans and other water fowl on tbe pools.
The quaint inn at wbicb we stopped fur
nished a study for the eye and mind, with
its old arch way and back precincts, with
stabling for sixty horses, and its pleasant
landlady who did everything in her pow

Glastonbury is five miles from Wells
and is associated with tbe earliest history
of tbe traditions of the England church.
Saint Joseph of Aminathea.is said to have
migrated hither, and the famous "G as
ton bury Thorn," wbicb blossoms at
Cbristmastide, is the result of his walking
stick being stuck into the ground Glas
tonbury is blended with tbe heroic legends
of King Arthur and bis knights. Here
stood tbe great abbey, one of the richest
in England, whose rums bear testimony
to its wonderful size and beauty. Tbe old
inn built by tbe abbot for the overflow of
his guests is still used for a public house;
it fact, it is tbe most aristocratic in town.
and there we saw wonderful furniture of
great beauty acd antiquity, besides cop
per and pewter vessels for cooking, etc ,
which would make an antequa do vio
lence to tbe 10th commandment of the
law. On Forhill, near the town, tbe last
abltot was banged by Henry VIII. The
quaintest old houses, with equally quaint
old people are seen here, and the sight of
an old farmer trying to sell two pigs cu
riously tied in an old two-wheeled cart,
held together by ropes and withes, will
never be forgotten.
Salisbury and the "Bu'l Tavern ' will
long remain in our memory. The cathe
dral is of the purest 'style of early Eng
lish architecture, beautiful for situation,
in its close of several h undred acres with
no buildings about it to hide its magnifl
cent appearance. It is quite unique in
the uniformity of its architecture oegun
in 12 JO and finished in 1260. It has the
highest spire in EagUnd 406 feet Tbe
peaceful Avon winds its lovely course
through the meadows and reflects almost
the entire cathedral in its waters The
city is full of quaint houses, and the
queer names of its many old inns would
bll a pate. We went to Bemerton two
miles to see the old church of good
George Herbert, and found tbe little stone
church seating about fifty persons, in all
its ancient simplicity, saving some few
changes to make it apt and meet (or pure
worshio. His rectory is close by wiib
lovely lawn sloping f the Avou.and one
can fancy the quiet peacefulness of Ibis
man of God in his parish surrounJed by
bis peasant people wbo loved him with
all their heart and walked after bis holy
counsel. A fine new church has been
erected close by to his memory, and am
ple evidences were present that though
dead he still li?eth. Wilton where tbe
famous Wilton c-trpets are made, and
where Sir Philip Sidney wrote his "Arca
dia" is only three miles away, while
Stonehenge and its mysterious monu
ments is eight miles oil on Salisbury
plain. Tbe Avon is still a stream for
brook trout, and it was interesting to see
men fishing for trout within tbe very lim
its of Salisbury beautiful city of Ibe

to linger on its loveliness, its wonderful

Winchester, twenty-nine miles away
was an old town before the Roman con
quest, nad later was the capita! of Alfred
and Canute. In its ancient cathedral,
Egbert, the flrst Saxon king, Richard I,
and several otner English monarcbs were
crowned, and Alfred. Egbert, Canute and
William Rufus were buried here. It is re
markable for its wealth of exquisite dec
oration, and while not yet restored, as
most other cathedrals in England have
been, it possesses in its very ruggedoess
a remarkable grandeur and beauty. We
visited the famous St. Mary's college.
founded and endowed in tbe fourteenth
century bv the famous bishop of Win
chester. William of Wvkebam. The
buildings are of immense size and have
sent out some of tbe most famous of Eng
iisbmen, and tbe good work still goes on.
having over 500 boys. It was interesting
to see the same old tables and benches in
the ball and dining room, the trencher on
square boards on which the boys get their
bread and butter from the pantry, the
school rooms and what they call the
"toys" or rooms for study, etc., where
each boy has his little den or alcove with
stool and table and cupboard for bis balls
and bats, and other playthings, tbe origi
nal brick rod with which the boys were
flogged, and tbe quaint rough bed on
which they slept. An old leather pitcher
was shown holding two gallons, out of
wbicb the daily beer was poured into
the pewter mugs of the boys. An
other very ancient institution of W.n-.
cheater is the "hospital of.tbe Holy
Cross," founded by Henry de Blois in
lldtj, and still serving its ancient:use as
an asylum for old men. though owing to
us loss oi ancient endowments tbe num
ber of pensioners is greatly reduced. The
inmates all wear a very long cloak one
division of bright red. tbe other of black,
witD a queer cap. An old pensioner
showed us about tbe place interesting
historical statements with gossip about
tbe rules, etc., of the house, plum pud
ding five -times a year with gin sauce,
Christmas, faster, Ascension, New Years.
and Michaelmas. A capon was formerly
served each inmate on a certain day in
the year. Now the old men receive nine
pence instead of the capon, and buy
their own capon, if they choose. An old
table of marble with wooden legs was
shown us, tbe original table on which the
cardinal paid the workmen their wages
when tbe hospital was erected in the
eleyenlh century one penny a day. The
ancient fireplace with its queer utensils,
brick oven, etc., is still used on four
days in each week, and beside tbe fire
place stands the old chair on which the
good cardinal sat each day to watch the
distribution of food, and see that each
pensioner received bis due share of ra
tions. The churcb of tbe hospital is
large and imposing, and must bave been
gorgeous in its early days. Some rich
frescoes were discovend two years ago by
one of the brothers bidden under a heavy
coat of marble with which the entire wall
was covered, and then whitewashed in
order to save the painting and sculpture
from the ruthless iconoclosm of tbe Pur
itans. Tbe beautiful sculpture of the
stone work . is, therefore, as fresh today
as when it was first erected more than
700 years ago. An ancient custom of
tbe hospital is still continued, viz.: At
the Porter s Lodge everyone who asks
the hospitality is entitled to a born of
ale and some bread. The cup is liter
ally a horn, and we asked and took one
regular horn of good old English ale with
its slice or chunk of bread. A pretty
stream nows through tbe meadows be
longing to the hospital, and many a poor
old man may well envy the lot of those
who are so well provided f or by tbe lib
erality of good Cardinal Beaufort more
than 700 years ago. God rest bis p'ious
soul, and bring him to the beautific vis
ion in tbe great day of the resurrection
After the constant travel of a week
three days' rest at Southampton before
the sailing of the steamer seemed abso
lutely necessary, and bo we rested fav
ored in securing rooms at a quiet inp.
where every comfort of bed and board
attended us. One day we walked three
miles and back to see tbe lovely ruins of
JNetlery Abbey, an old house of tbe Cis
tercian order, a most picturesque ruin, in
a lovely setting of wooded scenery, with
the beautiful bay of Southampton in full
view in front Tbe owner of the prop
erty is most liberal in opening the ruins
toeveribody and n amerous picnic par-
ties, besides an inzmense Sunday school,
were coming and going all the day. Tbe
rains are very extensive, and tbe original
building must havti occupied a large
area. All the day wia devoted to an ex
cursion on a pretty '. ittle bav steamer to
