The Taj itself is 186 feet squaro. It is 187 feet high, the met- ' al pinnacle on the dome running up an- i other thirty feet. On each is a redstone building exactly alike in appearance. ! One is a mosque, the other is a dam- j my pu.t there to balance things. The i Taj has a great central dome, four high corner minarets, with many small cupo las. It is covered inside and oat with flowers of nil colors and other decora tions all being done by inlaying prec- j ious stones, jade, jasper, coral, gold, ; etc., etc. The light is' let in through beautifully cai7ed lattice screens of marble. Above are the false tombs, with the names of Shah Jahan, his wife and their titles. On the tomb of his wife are the 93 names of God. In the vault below are the real tombs contain j ing their bodies. I cauuot describe the 1 Taj. Mahal. For ins-tauce: "All the angles and more important details are heightened by being inlaid with precious stoues. They are com- ! bined in wreaths, scrolls and frets as exquisite in design as beautiful in col- . or. They form the most beautiful and precious style of ornament ever adapt ed in architecture, etc., etc., etc." Not a word of this is mine. It is nearly quoted from an enthusiastic de scription of the Scotch Presbyterians, given me by Mike Donnegar one day when we were walking from the ferry landing to my office, bot it would do for the Taj. What struck me was that it seemed perfect. A tomb that would almost cover a block in Juneau, yet without a Haw. You could add nothing to it with out spoiling it, nor could you take any thing awaj. If you took a square foot of it anywhere it was perfect, aud if you took it as a whole it was perfect. It pleased you to look at it whether in side or outride. 1 saw it on dark and on bright days, by twilight aud moon light, close by and at a distance, from the fort aud from the Otlaer side of the river, and 1 believe it looked better to me as X saw it from the train when leav ing 4gra than at any other time. LUCKNOW Sir Heniy Lawrence was in command in Lucknow when the mutiny began. He had made preparations, had laid in a good supply of provision aud ammu nition. As there was no fort large enough he fortified the residency as well as he was able. A few dnys after the investment began, he was wounded by a fragment of a shell while in his room. He was advised to change his quarters, but eaid that his room was so small that a shell could not hit it again. A few days later another shell went tlnough the wall inflicting a mor tal wound. He was moved to Doctor Frayrer's house where he died. CoL lugles then took charge. They stood a siego of three mouths. Uuder seveial buildings were tykanas, underground cellars or basements which are found in all palaces and I baildiugs of any size in India. The I women's apartments are generally in the tykana. There were 3,000 people at the beginning of the seige; three months later not more than 1,000. There were 900 British soldiers at first, | the others being civilians,, there being many women and children. Moat of the women were in the tykana,. in the residency. The officers wives were in Dr. Frayrer's house or in the mess house. After the siege there were over ?>0 cannon balls taken out of the walls of the mess house. The heat was fierce, the rooms were black with flies and they lesorted to everything, even explo sioiis of gunpowder, to get rid of them, i Many died from cholera, smallpox, heat, exhaustion, typhoid, etc., besides those that were killed. The natives tried mining,, but Major Anderson, the chief engineer, headed them off. After his death Fulton took his place,, but a cannon ball took his head off. The British blew up several houses, once killing 90 natives in one explosion. Havelock and Outram relieved them in September, but the force was still under SjOOO agalnst 40,000 native drilled soldiers and as many more untrained. Lawrence had provided so well that they did not run short of anything. They made their own cartridges and fuses. In November Sir Colin Campbell ar rived and they evacuated the place by night, taking stores, non combatents,. wounded and able-bodied soldiers. He left Outram at Alambagh with 3,000 soldiers. He took the women^children, wounded and treasure to Allahabad and later they were sent to Calcutta. Havelock died at Dilkusha and was buried at AJambagb Lucknow has about three hundred thousand inhabitants. There are many fine mosques, but I have seen so many mosques that even their names would be tiresome to repeat. There is a fair museum and some very good hotels. As in Mexico most of the important buildings were palaces once. The Alain bagh is a palace and a gar den about three miles from the city. The palace is solid, square and empty. Here Havelock left his wounded and baggage, the first relief. Sir Colin Campbell used it as a base and after wards brought his women, children and wounded there before taking them on to Allahabad. Outram held the place for four months until Sir Colin return ed and took Lucknow. Across the road is a mosque which wa9 used by both British and natives as a fort. There is a little cemetery at Alambagh where Sir Henry Havelock is buried. Two miles nearer town is me udbo bagh where there was same fierce fight ing. Two miles farther on the same road brings you to the Dilkusha,, an other palace which was occupied by native soldiers when the British arriv ed. Havelock died here of dysentery. It is also empty and a ruin. Farther on is the Martiuiere, a rambling build ing or group of buildings, that is rather picturesque. The roof has about a hun- ^ dred towers and cupolas and there are statues of gods and everything else. There is a large dome in the center. In front is a small lake with a tower io the center 130 feet high. The Marten iere is an asylum or college for children of European parents, but born in India. Martin was a Frenchman who came out with Lally in 1756, deserted, joined the British and rose rapidly. He joined the Oude army for a while, then went iuto business, indigo, gunpowder and bank ing. He started an orphanage, took a native wife, but many of his own pupils preferred marrying bim to taking chan ces in the world, as he was rich, not very old and they liked him. His tomb | is in the building. There is a pretty chapel with stained windows, many good frescoes and statues. There is a ' large bell cast at his own foundry. The natives occupied this building until they were driven out by Sir Colin Campbell. Back of the house is the tomb of Martin's native wife and near by the tomb of two officers, one being that of Major Nodson of NodfonTs Horse. Winfield park stretches along for the next half mile. After passing through it you reach the Siccander bach. It is a palace and garden about 590 feet square and is surrounded by a high, thick wall. It is also empty. The natives held this place, but after shell ing the place and using mortars the British made a hole in the wall, through which some men of the 93rd Highland ers and of an English and Likh regi ment passed in. The first who went in were nearly all killed. It wa9 a hard fight aud there were 90 Highlanders killed. In the morning they counted the bodies of over 2,000 tepoys, all of them deserters or mutiueers from the British army. One little headstone does for the crowd. Close by is a mosque built over a foot print of Mahomet, which was brought from Arabia. It was lost in 1857, and the mosque is now a ruin. It was filled with sepoys who kept up a hot fire while the British were taking Siccandrabagh. riest is a large tomb where one oz their kings and his family are buried. The natives occupied it as they did every building between it and the resi dency. There is one mosque after an other until you reach the girls' college which was used then as a mess houee. Close by is the Kaisubagh, or palace with two magnificeut tombs in front of it. There i9 a square here with a gate way, where General Neill was shot through the head. A monument marks the spot. The clock tower which was used by the natives is not far away. About 100 feet from it is the British gate of the residency. My guide was one of Outram's men who helped to re lieve the garrison and was afterwards at Lucknow until its final capture by the British. He was old and brown, but lively. After passing through the Bailey gate you have on the right the old treasury and storeroom. On the left is Dr. Frayer's house, a large build ing which took a prominent part in the siege. He was resident physician and died only three years ago. (Continued next week) Address letters for Doctor Simpson JAS. K. SIMPSON, c. o. Thos. Cook & Son, Ludgate Circus, London, England.
