Environment % The environment of the body is ab solutely related to nerves. Cut the nerve of sight and you separate the realm of light. Cut the nerve oi hearing and you destroy the realm of sound. Cut the nerve of taste and all food becomes tasteless. But the nerv t?us system of man is also related to the brain, the seat of mind. Hence, his nerves must be in perfect accord with the whole environment of his life, his thought, his will, his work, hi* play or he can express only a part tif himself. So when the wonderful nervous system which energizes his life is debilitated or impoverished we can truly say he is out of harmony with his environment.

GLAZER AND HIS BRIDE FOUND IN LOS ANGELES Former Miss de Janon, Philadelphia Heiress, Refuses to Discuss Her Marriage. MRS. STEPHEN <i LASER, Win was MIm Roberta Bulat de Jaaoa. LOS ANGELES. Cal., January 26.? Hidden from the eyes of the world and enjoying their honeymoon In their own way, Stephen W. Glazer and his bride, formerly Miss Iloberta Buist de Janon, the youthful heiress to a fortune by the will of her grandfather, a Phila delphia merchant, are living at 939 South Burlington avenue. They are at home to no one. The young couple took out a license to marry a few days ago in this city. It is under.-tood they were married yesterday. Mrs. Glazer refused to make any statement last night "We have no statement to make con cerning our marriage," is what she said. The two young people have been liv ing at the Hurl ngton avenue place about a month with an elderly chap eron. according to? neighbors. They maintained the strictest reti?ence about themselves. They had few callers, went out seldom and tiien always in a closed carriage or auto. I.a>t night a reporter called upon the couple to secure the facts conecrning the marriage. The young bride herself answered the door. When she learned that tiie caller was a reporter, she closed the door, and then opened it for ar instant, and said: "I do not want to be' d:scourteous. but we have nothing to say about our m;< rr.age."

ITS ARCHITECTURE FAMOUS Ail the Buildings in State of Perfect Preservation. SPECIMENS OF TEUTONIC TYPE Stories Handed Down From the An. cients Upon Which Romantic History Is Based. BY WILLIAM E. CCRTIS. t\ri!ten for The Star and the ChioaTo Rwird . Herald. If you w|M take a trolley car in front of the opera house in Hanover some morn Ing and ride thirty mileti through the neatest and smartest looking gardens you ever saw you will be carried rijiht into the middle ages, and you would better take your luggage along, because you will. want to stay there. The southern terminus of that trolley road is the quaintest. moH fascinating and most fantastic town in all Germany. It Is called Hildesheim, which in English means "Hilda's Home." and was dedi cated to the Saxon godders Hilda, who was converted to Christianity and became St. Hilda. Another St. Hilda, a descendant of the royal Northumbrian line of England, wai< the founder of a celebrated nunnery at Whitby, near London, in the middle of the seventh century, which was 250 years before the Hilda that I am talking about was born. Both were romantic and in teresting characters. Benowned for Architecture. The (.Hty of Hildesheim is renowned above all other places in Germany for its perfect examples of medieval Teutonic architecture. It surpasses in picturesque nesy Nuremburg, Rothenberg, Brunswick, Augfburg and every other place. Thote towns have quaint old houses with high pitched roofs, narrow trefoil windows, loophole d watch turrets, overhanging pro jections on brackets, sharp gables, tiers of wooden friezes covered with gro tesque carvings and paintings. But the greater part of Hildesheim is made up 01 such buildings. There is nothing elR>, and they are in a state of perfect preservation. The cathe dray, which is neany a thousand years old. and several other churches are per fectly i reserved, and a dozen or twenty streets are lined on both sides by the finest specimens of ancient Teutonic type that exist. And what gives them addi tional interest Is the legends connected with them and the traditions of the an cient aristocracy which supported tne prince-bishops who ruled this part of Germany for more than a thousand > ears Poetic Legend. There are several legends to account for the existence of Hildesheim, which I may call the antique gem de luxe of Germany. The most poetic is that 1.003 >ears ago, in 1815, when Emperor Louis the Pious, a son of Charlemagne, wat hunting on the outskirts of the Harz mounta ns. in following a deer he lost his way an-i li s ho.se and his game In try-' ing to rind his camp he swam the river Inneirst?. which flows through the center ol Hi.di?sheim today, aud wuen he lanaed on the other side he found a beautiful bush of white roses covering a mound sacred to the ancient Saxon gjduesj Hilda. As he Mat there to rest, while his clothes were drying, he drew from his bosom a casket In which he carried for good lu<*k and for preservation from peril several relics of the Blessed Virgin. After offering a prayer for her intercession to guide liim oack to his camp, he fell into a deep sleep. When he awoke his budy and every object around him were buried in snow, although it was miri'summer. The trees that sheltered him were In full foliage, the roses were fresh and sweet and even more brilliant in color than they were when he first saw them. The pagan goddess had been "shaking her feather bed." as the German fairy stories explain snowstorms, and had given him a sign of gieat significance. Complete When Snow Melts. The miracle was completed, when tha snow melted away, by the_ appearance of the Blessed Virgin in person, who com manded him to build a shrine in her honor upon that mound. The shrine was built, the pagan goddess in some way or another accepted Christianity and was afterward canonized. In building the chapel the rose bush was carefully preserved and was trained up the outside wall of the apse. A monas tery was built by the Benedictines on the other side of the cnapel, and before the end of the century way very much en larged to accommodate the monks who came there for worship and contempla tion. Mnaily a cathedral was erected bv Bishop Prince Heziio in 872, which still stands. It has been extended from time to time until Its cloisters entirely sur round the original chapel and the miracu lous rose bush, which is as vigorous as it ever was, and is covered with blossoms every summer. Preservation of Relics. In the treasury of the cathedral are stili preserved the very relics of the Blessed Virgin which Louis the Pious worshiped on that day, with many other precious things, nuch as the knjfe and fork of Charlemagne, a piece of the true cross, the head of Oswald, King of North umbria and father of the English Saint Hilda, who died in the year 642. There is a very ancient manuscript treatise on geometry, from which Saint Bernward, the most illustrious of the prince-bishops of Hildesheim. taught Emperor Otto III of Germany. There are other interesting relics of saints and famous men, includ ing a beautiful little altar, which is said to have been made by Iia Angelico, the famous artist monk of Florence. ' On the top of the ancient rauthaus is a wooden effigy called the Maid of Hil'de-! sheim. It represents Saint Hilda, and It is said that during tne earlv history of the town, when it was attacked by the barbarians which plundered that part of Germany, this effigy was placed upon the ramparts of the city wall and used to catch in its apron the cannon balls of fire with which the enemy hoped to burn out the town. As you will observe, there is a good deal of confusion in these legends. They don't seem to gibe. But you are not re quired to accept them all, and there are advantages in having a choice even of good things. So expenditure of time atid patience that I could afford has been suf ficient to clear up the relationship be tween the Saint Hilda of England, w hose father's he*.d reposes In the reliquary of the cathedral?the Saxon Saint Iliida, who lived here and was worshiped by the na tives 2*? years later?and that enterpris ing young woman who served as a cannon ball catcher during the sieges that the town endured. No Doubt About the Bose Bush. .But there is no doubt about .the rose bush..for It Is here today. Thousands of peoplts from all over the world come to see It. and, it makes that cloister garden one of the most beautiful spots on earth. Slips from the bush have been carried everywhere to be replanted, tor any one can buy them of the monks. The per fume of the roses Is said to eootri the grief of the sorrowful, and. three days before he dies every member of the ca thedral chapter is warned of his death by having a white rose from that bush placed miraculously on the seat of his stall in the choir. I asked the monk who showed us around and told us of these legends if that was an actual fact. "I have never seen the miracle my self." he replied, with a most ser'ous and ?oiemn tone, "but several of the o'der brothers t^kve seen It many times.

Another Miracle Disclosed. According to another legend, Louis the Pious, in the year 813. was hunting in the forest that covered this part of Germany and, according to hiB habit, had his chap lain with him. On Sunday mass was said under a tree, and the trunk was used for an altar. The next morning camp was broken and the party moved -on. A day or two later, to the consternation of the king and the entire party, several sacred relics which the good man was in the habit of carrying with him as talismans on all his journeys and campaign? were not to be found, and everybody started back along the trail to search for them. They were Anally discovered hanging in the tree where mass had been celebrated the Sunday before. Because the chaplain insisted that ho had taken them down and carried them away in the brass bound oaken chest that held his vestments and the sacrrd vessels used at mass, it was decided that a mir acle had been performed and that the Holy Virgin, by that sign, had indicated her desire to have a chapel crected In her honor at that place.. The chapel was built, and Louis the Pious founded a monastery beside it, which grew In d. mensions and in influence at? the g Dera tions succeeded each other, until finally it became a walled town, with a cathe dral and a bishop, and was named Hildes heim. The farmers, mechanics and tradfsmen flourished and became rich, the bishop was made a prince, one after the other extending his jurisdiction until they reigned over villages, towns and cities in that diocese. Hlldtsheim became so important commercially that it was ad mitted to the Hanseatic League, a combi nation of cities which controlled trade at that time. In th? year loui Thang mar, a priest and director of the cathe dra! school, wrote that "In all Saxony there Is no town equal to Hlldesheim in strength and beauty." Powerful in War. Several states on the continent in those days w<re ruled by ecclesiastics, and some of them were as powerful In war as in spiritual affairs. Many a time a serv ant of the lord has tidden forth against his enemies In a coat of mail, at the head of a band of knights, and the prince bishops of Hildt shelm were warriors and statesmen and merchants, according to their tastes. But they did not always have their way. The people became very independent with their increase, of wealth, atjd commerc'al prosperity, and'during the ?00 years In which they had a prieat for a ruler they frequently defied and sometimes fought him In 1310, for example, they refused to pay taxes, because of certain diaputts with the prince-bishop Henry II and ?lo?ed the gates of the. city against, him, when fie returned from an ep'scopal mis sion. He brought them to terms very quickly by summoning an army of men and turning the course of the river In nerste which ran through the town A hundred and fifty years later they re belled against another prinoe-bishop, Barthold by name, because he imposed a tax on beer, and finally compelled him to abolish it. At another time they cut off the head of th3 bishop's tax collector because of his extortion; again they re futed to pay a bridge toll that they thought was unjust, but one of the most wicked tilings they ever did was to tear down and burn the house of a tyrannical canon of the cathedral who had jurisdic tion over the markets, and imposed exces sive taxes upon the peasants who sold : their eggs and vegetables in Hilclesheim. I For tliis "Jack Lean Cabbage," as Bishop I John IV was called, sentenced the town to furnish a twenty-pound candle to the I cathedral every feast day for five years. Severe Penalty for Immorality. The bishops were very severe In their punishment of immorality, drunkenness and other offenses. You can see on the quaint old platz before the town hall, and it is ope of the most picturesque pub I> 11c squares In all the world, where scold ing women and scandal mongers were ex hibited for public ridicule In a cage, or i in stocks upon which snarling cats were painted. The post still stand* in front of the house of the bakers' guild, where men were flogged, and to which ttieir eyes were nailed, when they had done serious evil. There is a horse block in the platz upon which men sentenced to death ware placed on their way to the gallows, for the public to gaze at, and if any respecta ble woman would agree to marry the con demned man he was pardoned. In this square passion plays like that at Oberammergau were performed on Good Friday by amateurs, with monks as stage managers, eight and n ne hundred years ago. When the hell in the cathedral tower rang an alarm all able-bodied burghers were expected to gather in the square, be it day or night, and receive their Instruc tions from the bishop, or from one of the canons who represented him. This was the rer.dexvous when they were called out for war. When the prince-bishop had a proclamation to make, an order to Issue or an announcement of Importance, all men who bore arms were lined up alpha betically to do their duty as citizens. It was there, in 1R02. when Hlldesheim was relieved from ecclesiastical govern ment and made a part of the duchy of Hanover, that the citizens heard what had happened to them, and there again. In 1MSM. they refused to take the oath of allegiance to King Wllhelm of Prussia unt 1 a term of imprisonment brought them to their senses. Market women from a!l the country around occupy the square three morn ings in the week, and the hausfraus come there to trade, to buy eggs, butter and vegetables In the most picturesque of all the public squares I have ever seen. Overlooking them, from the front of an ancient building, which is now a savings bank, is a clock tower from which a little manikin appears and sounds the hour upon a trumpet. Beneath him is the head of a Jew who opens and closes his eyes at the sound of the trumpet and looks very sad. as the children are taught to believe, because another unprofitable hour has passed away. "True Length of a Yard." - On the wall of a house on the northern side of the square, imbedded in the wall, is a model of a yardstick, carefully marked off into inches. It is th? standard of measure used by all the shopkeepers in the town. The story goes that the widow of a local merchant was once awakened in the night by the spirit of her ! late husband, who reported to her that I he had been sent by the recording angel into the regions of eternal Are and con demned to perpetual tormen.t in burning br.mstone, because, in his business on earth, like other tradesmen, he had been in the habit of buying with a long meas ure and selling with a short one. He begged her to do something in order to prevent his fellow-townsmen who hap pened to be in trade, from suffering the penalty that had been imposed upon him. The next morning th.s tearful and conscientious woman went to the .burgo master with her story, and he ordered at her expense a proper measure to be placed upon the outside walls of her house, and had engraved over it the in scription: " This is the true length of a yard." There are several other odd inscriptions upon the walls of the houses in the neigh borhood, all of which have a story at tached to them. j REVENUE CUTTER SERVICE. | ?
