Ode of the many pleasing object* pre
souting themselves to the eye in thi
numerous line drives from Newport t4
the other two towns-Miduetown t4
Portsmouth on tile same islaud, are th
old-fashioned windmills. They maj
truly be called old-fashioned, nut oulj
ton account of the antiquity of tia
tiethod of ga inding grain, but also be
cause of the veneraule age of the strue
ures themselves. Atust prominen
tmong these is the Old Stone Auli
iulilt, two hundred years ago by Gover
nor Arnold, which has so absurdi
teen made to do duty as a relic of thi
tegendary visit of the Northmen t4
.Newport. Tie Governor mentien
ilis btructure In a deed of land adjoin
ing its site, and lie evidently built i
at ter the model which he had seeni nea,
his own birthplace In England, whiel
is still in active working order. Doubt
less many a grist mus, in years gon
by, ground within this roofless relic
'The lack of running streams, tidal o
otherwise, on the island, compelle(
the Ilrit English occupants of it to hav
recourse to this method of manufactur
ing their breadstui's. It offers a prett:
fairly balanced comparison of facilitle
and costs with the use of water power
There are eight of these windmills oi
the island besides Arivold's, seven o
them doing active duty - when the ele

but women and children found their 1
way into the Bastile, so that there was I
often a lack of -accommodations. The
3 cells were all in the high round towers,
- where a hcavy iron grating and a pecu

were slightly beneath the level of the
