Th?re members were to be considered as

One of the contests was In writing. Pen

contestant was commanded to write twelve
times over the copybook sentence, ''Writing

sufficient practice in left-hand chlrography

the competition of the merriest kind.
The two competitors whose writing was

A Mean Mnn.
There is a man in this town whose riches
are reckoned in six figures, but whose rep
utation for stinginess Is even greater than
his wealth. He was seen tp enter an F
street tailor shop the other day with a pair
of well-worn trousers in one hand and in
the othfr a piece of cloth of tho same pat
tern from which the garment had been
made. Said he to the tailor:
"There Is in this piece of clothing half
e nough material to make a pair of trousers.
In the rear of this pair are divers holes and
threadbare spots. The front shows few
signs of wear. I want you to make me a
new garment by using the goods now in
the front of the trousers for the rear,
working this. new piece of good from the
same pattern, which the tailor gave me
when I bought the suit, into the front. I
want you to do this, providing the cost to
me will be less than the price of a new
pair of trousers I.raw down on E street
which I like and which can be bought for
"That." said the tailor, when the rich
man had gone to buy the E-street trousers,
"is the meanest man I ever saw."

And when beneath some heavy cross you faint
And say, "I cannot har this load alone." "
You say the truth. Christ made It purposely
So heavy that you must return to Him.

Convey a secret message from the King,

The Mnn of Sorrows understands it well.
In all points tempted He can feel with you.
You cannot come too often, or too near.

And those who walk with Him from day to day
Can never have a "solitary way."

Correspondence of the Indianapolis Journal.
SEGOVIA. Spain, July S. Unlike little
Jack, of the nursery rhyme, we saved the
"plums" of the Spanish capital till the very
last. Thus our final days in Madrid were
extremely busy, and extended almost from
dawn to dawn. The Spaniardsrefusing,
not unreasonably, to modify their climate
and habits to suit the convenience of
strangers arise long before the sun, spend
the heated days In the retirement of siesta,
and do most of their moving about during
the hours of darkness. Show places are
open to the public gaze only between 8 and
1G a. m., and again from 5 to 7 in the even
ing; while the people, whom the tourist
wishes as much to see, are at their best,
as to social life and amusements, from 9
p. m. to 2 or 3 o'clock in the morning.
Those midday hours which Americans de
vote to work, study and accomplishment
are passed In slumber by the lazy Dons
shops, offices and public buildings all closed
and streets well nigh deserUd. However,
this state of affairs is not without advan
tages to tho tourist, who can manage an
"open sesame" and generally the judicious
expenditure of a few pesos will do it any
wiicrc In Spain because he may have
things all to himself for leisurely study
during most of the day.
Our last morning was devoted to the Roy
al Armory, which is considered the finest
museum of Its kind in the world. It occu
pies the site of an ancient castle of tho
Moorish Kings, opposite the parade ground
iu front of the Modern Palace. All ar
mories have a general resemblance, but
this of Madrid, besides its extraordinary
extent, is celebrated as containing the
armor and swords of the greatest knights
and personages In history, as well as spec
imens of every weapon used In the penln
fcula since the age of stone.
The first glimpse from the doorway of
equestrian figures drawn up In lints all
down the middle of the grand saloon, and
knights in full armor standing against the
walls, of implements of war and the tour
nament hanging on every side. Interspersed
with hundreds of banners wrested from
the enemy, and thousands of coats-of-arms,
carries one back to Spain's heroic days.
Among the swords of her noblest cam
paigners, the helmets of her wisest heads,
the breast-plates under which throbbed her
bravest hearts, may be seen the trusty
blades of her great captains, Gonzalo de
Cordova, Francisco Pizarro and Hernan
Cortcz; the saddle of the Cid, and the hel
met of Boabdil, the last King of Grenada,
who surrendered the Alhambra to Ferdi
nand and Isabella; the authenticated
armor, weighing forty-one pounds, which
encased the: gigantic form of Christopher
Columbus, together with his Milan harness,
inlaid with gold and silver; the complete
armor of Charles V. the same in which
Titian painted him; and his sword the
most famous weapon ever wrought by Juan
of Toledo, which was brought from the
monastery of Yusto after the Emperor's
death. There are Roman and Carthaginian
pears and bucklers; the maces and golden j
crowns of the Visagoth kings tho latter
like chandeliers, irom which numerous or
ders arc suspended; cruel bits and spurs
of Alfonso VI; the battered armor worn by
Cortcz during the siege of Mexico, still
bearing upon its crest the green and scarlet
plumes that waved in triumph over the
battlefield of the Aztecs; the broadsword
with which Pizarro hewed his bloody way
through the naked legions of the Incas;
the vaunted trophies of Lepanto; the Afri
can treasures surrendered , to Cardinal
Ximenes at ,Oran; and countless other
mementoes of scenes of glory and chlv-
alric heroism that seem hardly possible to
our prosaic age. There are thirty-five splen

In fine cinque-onto the fronts bearing the
image of the Blessed Virgin, (his tutelar),
the backs are engraved portrait of Santa
Barbara, the patroness of artillery; and
as many suits of even greater elegance be
longing to that modern fop, Don Carlos;
also suits of Don Sebastian, of Portugal;
and a magnificent suit of Philip II, all black
and gold, made In 1350 and looking as fresh
to-day as if laid aside only last week.
OLD TIME WEAPONS.
Collections of guns, belonging to the
Charles, Third and Fourth, many of them
inlaid with Jewels, are worthy those royal
gamekeepers. Near them are the swords of
St. Ferdinand, conqueror of Seville, of that
gentle princess, Isabel la Catolica; the
Montanes, or double headed swords, sent
by Popes to Spanish kings, who used them
as their executioners; -and curious leathern
shields of the Moors two hides, fastened
together by a cement composed of herbs
and camel's hair, oval in form, each with
three tassels and the unbo, or knob, very
light, but perfectly resisting spear and
sword. The ornamentation and equipments
of the Arabians, who, under the Sultans
of Grenada, attained such excellence in the
production of weapons and armor, is ex
quisite beyond description, the gold chas
ings and enamels being yet as bright and
perfect as the day they left the makers
hands. Not least remarkable among the
antiquated firearms are some pistols of
Spanish workmanship with revolving cy
linders, made two hundred years before
Col. Colt was born, but almost Identical in
mechanism with his modern revolver.
Next we visited the Royal Gallery of
Paintings, of which Madrid is justly proud.
as it contains by far the finest collection
of pictures in Europe. Every school Is well
represented, including the best works of
such masters as Titian, Rubens, Paul
Veronese, Murillo, Van Dyke and Vales
quez. Whatever may be said to the dis
credit of the Austrian dynasty, they Were
certainly liberal patrons of genius, and
especially to Charles V, and to the second
and fourth Philips, is the world indebted
for these priceless treasures. To see them,
one must pay the small fee of W cents,
which goes to the support of the Asylum
for the Poor, on the Prado.
ON TO SEGOVIA.
From Madrid to Segovia, on the other
side of the snow-capped Gudarramas about
sixty-three miles we Journed part way by
dilgencia in order to take in San Ilde
fonso, where the court generally passes the
months of July, August and September.
As we rattled across the bridge that spans
the dry gorge of the Manzanarcs, we came
upon an interesting sight. Some rural fiesta
was In progressand the meadow along the
bank a mile or more was filled with booths
for eating, drinking, dancing and gaming,
men and women offering thvir "agua
fresea" from huge jugs, and family groups
scattered about everywhere, lunching on
garlic-pot, salads, red peppers and oranges.

Farther up the hill were long rows of stalls

A "CASTLE IN THE AIR.'
San Ildefonso, or La Granja, as it is gen
erally put on the maps, is twenty-seven
miles from Madrid, at an elevation of not
quite 4.000 feet, the difference in tempera
ture being about as 68 degrees to 03 degrees
Fahrenheit. This royal palace, in the
same latitude äs Naples, stands higher
than the crater of Mt. Vesuvius, surround
ed by rocks, forests and crystal streams,
while Immediately above it towers the
peak of La Penalara, one of the highest
in Spain. Castlllans are fond of saying
that this literal "castle in the air" is a wor
thy chateau for their Kings, who, being the
first and loftiest of earthly sovereigns,
deserve a retreat which soars nearest to
heaven. The palace itself a rather the
atrical French chateau, the very antithe
sis of the proud and. gloomy Escorial
looks to the foreigner as if it might have
been moved by slaves of Aladdin's lamp
from the bald level of the Seine to the
wild Spanish seirra. A long line of fanci
ful railing, like that of the Carrousal at
Paris, divides three sides of a square. The
overwindowed facade, resembling a long-drawn-out
conservatory, fronts a garden,
which is said to be the finest In Spain,
and includes 363 acres. The grand walk
in front, called. the parterre (for everything
here is French in name and style), over
looks a boundless expanse of flowers,
water and mountains. As everything is
artificial, like the character of its builder,
the cost was enormous, reaching 45.000,000
piastres the exact sum In which Philip
V died indebted. After all San Ildefonso
is but an imitation, on a smaller scale,
of the garden of Versailles, but the foun
tains of this Spanish Versailles are- more
real than those of their French original,
being no turbid puddle forced up by ma
chinery, but genuine crystal distillations
fresh from the mountain alembic. The
Cascador Cenador, a splendid natural sheet
of falling water glittering like molten
silver under the brilliant sun of Castile,
supplies a large reservoir below, which,
with characteristic Spanish modesty, is
termed El Mar, the ocean.
A COSTLY PLEASURE.
There are thirty fountains in the grounds,
the most famous being the Fama, which
shoots up water 130 feet. Poor Philip V 13
said to have stopped before it a few min
utes upon its completion and to have ex
claimed: "It has cost me three million
piastres for the three minutes I have been
amused." Multitudes of statues and mar
ble vases deck the avenues and labyrinthine
walks, their artificiality contrasting sharp
ly with the wild hills and rocks clothed
with somber pines. Inside the palace are
great bare, marble floored saloons lined
with paintings and antiques. The royal
apartments we did not see. In one of them

A few miles distant and easily reached
on horseback, though the bridle path is
very rough and a guide is needed, is the
beautiful ruined monastery of El Fauler,
a Carthusian convent raised by John I to
carry out a vow which his father had made
while campaigning In France. There is
also in tho neighborhood a "chapel of tho
kings" built in 139") by Rodrige Alfonso and
another church built about that period by
a Segovian Moor, both well worth visiting.
We were quite unprepared for the mag
nificence of the Guadarrama mountains,
which we had to cross by a pass more
striking than any I have seen in our own
Western Sierras. The truly Alpine ascent
begins soon after leaving Vilalba, the road
passing from the region of pines to that of
pnow, with walls of rock rising high on
either side, broken here and there by ap
palling precipices. The descent is not with
out its perils, especially when anything Is
met in tho narrow canyons. What we
feared most was not brigands, nor mule
trains, with their bulging loads, but a herd
of the fierce northern cattle being driven
down to Madrid to supply the Plaza de
Toros. They are apt to dispute the pass
age and before their uncut horns the dill
gencla, with its swearing jehu and handful
of passengers, would stand but poor show
ing. Happily, however, none was met, the
bull-fighting season being temporarily over.
Through wild and wooded scenery we
reached the plains in safety, and after tra
versing many miles of dismal country at
last behold Segovia rising against a glow
ing sunset sky. The old Iberian city crowns
a steep hill 3.000 feet high, but seen from a
distance it seems hardly to rise above the
level of lofty surrounding uplands, from
which it is separated by deep ravines.
Looking down upon the crowded town the
see of a bishop, suffragan to Villadold you
see churches, towers and red-roofed houses
apparently piled one upon another from a
foreground of desolate moorland, where
foaming mountain torrents dance and
sparkle through burned grass and pale
gray rocks. Old Romanesque churches and
convents occupy some rising ground to the
right, and as the coach whirls around the
corner below them you come upon the huge
aqueduct with two tiers of arches which
the Roman Emperor Trajan built across a
hollow in order to unite the original town
with lt3 more populous suburb. Beneath
these antique arches you enter the main
street of Segovia, which winds up the hill
between double gateways. On every side
are medieval houses with ajlnez windows,
squares aflame with local color and cos
tume, half-ruined palace?, and, dominating
all, a wonderful Gothic cathedral, the larg
