T;ic lli'st thing to attract "unit tcntion upon entering and ascending a short Might of steps was a marble statute of 11 winged warrior with sword, helmet and idiield, Ju.-t Imek of this in the Mausoleum pripe:'.

Very beautiful ly sculptured life size, figures of the mun. iiri'lis rest upon the tombs. In the rear is a .small chapel with altar and crucillx. and up on its arched ceiling 1; painting representing a king and iiueen about to lay their crownsut the feet of Christ, who, with outstretched firms, bestowes his blessing upon t!:?!ll, In scriptious in goM, extend around the entire "p of the marble walls and upon the floor .t the side of each sarcophagus, cut hlthostone are the names, dale of birth and death am! length of reign of these illustrious rulers of a great nation. The mausoleum stands in a large garden, near the entrance of which is a royal palace built In lr.'J'.i. Here the late and much lamented Frederick III passed the greater part of his short reign. A lady con ducted us through a mini be:' of rooms in the palace, which though handsomely furnished hardly corresponded with the Mens I had formed of the great maguillcence of the im perial residences. The handsomest ami most interesting thorougfare in Berlin is the world famed U liter don Linden. A wide promenade runs through the center of it and on either side two rows of Linden trees, lietween the trees ami the curb is a way for vehicles paved with stone. At one end is the Ilramlenburg er Thor, a large stone structure with arched gateways. On the top of it is a large bronze "Chariot of Victory", which was taken by t!,e French to Taris in lii7 and brought back in 1HH. Just within tho Thor is Paris Place, so named beeauso of the victories over the French in 1S14-15. On one side of the place is the old palace, occupied at one time by Uluclier, At tho other end of the street about a mile distant are the stately palaces of royalty profusely ami elaborately ornamented with statuary and massive stone columns. A handsome, bridge upon which there are six marble groups crosses the Spree at this point. Just beyond the bridge is a small park call ed the "Lust Garten". Facing this park are the old and new ltoyal museums, in which we spent iiiuny hours, viewing works of art until our eyes wearried of them. On the other side stands tho palace occu pied by the Emperor and his court when in the city. One day during his absence from the city we were shown through twenty of the seven hundred rooms which it contains. Thru' ot thom arc worthy of special mention. T-he "Throne Room" in which there isa throne of pure silver weighing 8400 fts. and a beauti ful crystal chandelier brought from Yoiiu and under which Luther at one time stood before tho Reichstag: also a lot of massive gold and silver table plate made, for Fred erick tho Great. The picturo gallery QOO ft long and 20 ft wide in which thero are life size portraits of all of the Hohenzollerns and their wives and many paintings of an historical character. Pass ing through tho "Black Eagle Chamber" the "Bed Velvet Chamber" and the "(Jueen's Boom" we entered the "White Hall," which our guide told us is the largest and most beautiful room in the palace. It is 100 ft in length, 60 ft wide and 40 ft high. Here the splendor of decoration reaches its height. It is finished entirely in white and gold, and statues of all tho electors are ranged about the walls. A staircase leads from the hall to the chapel, the dome of which is 113 ft high A few blocks from the Lust Garten is the Moubljou I'alaco whtoh has been convorted into a museum forthe exhibition of royal ret ics. In it I saw a great many things which interested me deeply. In one room is the old work table of Count von Moltke, in another Napoleon's caso of cumpaign instruments and orders captured nt Waterloo. In the rooms dedicated to Frederick tho Great are to be seen his favorite horse Conde, clothes worn by him from infancy to old age, a num ber ol his flutes and musical compositions, about 50 of his snuff boxes (I doubt that he used all of themi, his death mask In wax, the chair in which he died and drawings and de signs by himself for his "SansSouci Palace.' In one of Queen Louise's rooms is a bed in which she had reposed and near it a cradle in which, no doubt, she had often, with great motherly love, looked upon the infant who in January lHTl became the first Emperor of Germany, William I. In a glass case wore specimens of her handwriting, fancy work made in her youth, a loek of her hair and a great many other personal effects. As I gaz ed upon these reminders of that noble and beautiful woman, I was deeply moved. She was in my opinion, a true tipe of Ideal worn anhoott. One who combined an intense love for husband, children and home, with an ac tive interest in the political and social welfare of her counts- One who by her womanly in stincts. lovintrvways and noble Impulses, ex ercised such an Influence over her husband as to be able to inwce him. much agains this will, to take up arm against the great Na II WW L WW pjleon and assist in crushing him. But I mitt Is- brief. It would take a good sized volume to record in detail the many things of interest which I have seen tn this great city and my impressions concerning them. We passed the whole of one day in the Zo obieal (.aniens- Theanimals.coniiug from all irts of the world, are so numerous that one day will hardly suftlce to see all of them Comiuired with this great Zoj that of N. Y City is Insignificant. In one of the pens was an animal which looked very familiar. l'i on thegi.te was his card, which read"Ameri anishe Maul Escl." which translated means "Americin n.ule". He l.K.kel old but very dignified. I was about to greet him as a fel low countryman w hen he turned about and walked away. We witnessed two grand milt tary demonstrations while here, the occasion f one of them lieing the coronation of the Czar of KusMiutlie other, one of the two an nua! military reviews, whi'h took place up on a large cumnons en1 led the Temple of H.-ve. were assembled over twenty thousand soldiers of all arms, cavalry, artillery and in fantry. All of them were paraded before the Emperor and Empress and weretben dispurs ed. The Empress mounted upon a charger sc l within a few yards of us. Father si.id she winked at bill' as she passed. If -he did it escaped my notice. The Emperor we saw nly from a di-tance. Two days were devot ed to sight seeing at the great Berlin Indiis trieul Exposition which was opened in May nd closes in October. We did not .e much f what the vast buildings contained, but noiigb to convince ns that Berlin can well bold her own with other large cities in the production of nil that goes towards making ilfe comfortable. In the village of Old Berlin, one of the Mid way I'lasaince features, wo remained for , time. A sign upon one of the .pinint ..Id pith century buildings read "An under ground tour." It aroused our curiosity to know what it was. We went in and were ush- red into what appeared to be an elevator. A young lady pushed a button, there was a rumbling sound and it seemed as though we lescended deep down into the bowels of the earth. The door was opened and we stepped ut into a "Fairy Grotto' with numerous pas sages in which there were many mirrors, the whole forming a maze. We did not know which way to turn until a guide made his ap pearance and took us through a number of the beautiful and intricate pathways. We ame to a flight of steps which ourguidetold us to ascend. We did so, passing through a trap door at the top into a small room with walls of mirrors in which we could see snore- (lections of ourselves. A great crowd of John and Henry Thicsens in various positions uld be seen in every direction. After a hearty laugh we joined our guide who was waiting for us below. After walking but a few steps, to our great astonishment, we found ourselves once more in tho open air ti.it a few feet from whore we had entered. The descent of the elevator was an illusion created by moving pannels before openings Inthelittloroom withcushioned seats, which we thought an elevator. A procession head- el by a brass band, now passed us, which represented tho "return of the hunters." A number of young girls in Knickerbockers with looso (lowing hair and all carrying (lowers preceded the hunters who were dress ed in the fantastical costumes of "ye olden time." and followed by an old cart filled with game. After leaving the old village wo saw another sideshow attraction of a novel char acter. A navel battle between miniature gun- b mts. The display took place on one of the many pretty lakes within tho park-like grounds. Tho boates, ten of them in all, j yarrying ill length from 0 to 10 feet. built j'.lstlikOiV.ir large War ships, circled round find round in the water, following no regular course, and moving unite rapidly. A deaf ning noise was made by the firing of the can nons upon their decks and protruding from holes in the sides of the vessels. Flags were lowered from and hoisted to tho tops of the musts. Cannons were also fired from a small fort at one end of the lake and torpedoes thrown which exploded In the water. How these boats were operated was a deep mys tery which we were unable to solve. But to return to the city, Berlin is grand ! Berlin is beautiful! Berlin is superb! The streets up on which thero are no unsightly telegraph poles, tho wires extending over tho roofs of the houses, are beautiful. The private resi dences, with their handsomely ornamented fronts and many balconies filled with plants and flowers, are beautiful. The public parks and places, of which there are a great many, are beautiful, I hope you will not think me like most travelers who havo seen but little of the world, and very apt to ascribe great beauty to that which would command but little attention from one with a wider and more extended knowledge of the world and what it contains. When I pronounce a thing beautiful, kindly condescend to think that it is so, not alone in my eyes but in the eyes of tho world. I firmly believe that In Berlin and subur ban towns including Potsdam there aremore bronze and marble statutes than in the whole of the United Mates outside of tlioso coi'a'n ed in the art museums. Many of them are wholly devoid of drapery and true to life in every detail. Whether this is conductive of or detrimental to good morals, is a question which I cannot answer, not having given the subject sufficient thought, but from a close observation of the people with whom wo were brought in contact, both in public and private places.I would say that they are more modest and reserved in their bearing than are Ameri cans in our lagre cities.

M'Kinley's Acceptantance. (Now YorK World, Dem.) The republican candidate's speech of acceptance yesterday was charaier-, istically shallow and sophistical. With his usual solemn face and tone1 he told his hearers that if his tariff law were restored the treasury would have revenue enough and gold would come to us and not go from us in the settlement of trade balances. Yet Mr, McKinley must know that his tariff cut down the revenues nearly 390,000,000, that there was an actual deficiency during the last three months of President Harrison's term, that there wa3 a net loss to the country of over $120,000,000 in gold during the last republican ad minis tration, and that the present revenue law i3 producing more money than his boasted bill did either in its first or its last year.

It says: 'Imports into Great Britain exceed edesports last year by .130,547,693, and net imports of geld amounted to 14,736,715 a total of 145,234,408. This is the tribute the rest of the world is under to Great Britain. This represents the interests on the sums the British creaditor classes have loaned to fongners and interest on the capital invested in her merch ant marine. Over $700,000,000 is the tribute of the world to England, and the futher prices fall, the more cotton, and other produce will she re ceive in payment. Yet we are to wait for tQe creditor classes of Great Britain to join hands with U3 in le storing bimetallism, raising prices and cutting down the tribute. Truly, it is folly to wait for international bime tallism. Twenty years we have wait ed in vain, and so long as we remain supinely inactive, we will continue to wait. By opening our mints to sil ver, we can force bimetallism; but by begging we will never achieve it." Gold as a Bulwark. 'No people in a great emergency ever found a faithful ally in gold. It is the most cowardly and treacher ous of all metals. It makes no treaty it does not break. It has no friend it does not betray. Armies and Navies are not maintained by it. In times of panic and calamity, shipwreck and disaster, it becomes the agent and minister of ruin. No nation ever fought a great war by the aid of gold. On the contrary, in the crisis of the greatest peril it be comes an enemy more potent than the foe in the field; but when the battle is won and peace has been se cured, gold reappears and claims the fruits of victory. In our own civil war it is doubtful if the gold of New York and London did not work great er injury than the powder and lead and the iroti of the rebels. It was the most invincible enemy of the public credit. Goid paid no soldier or sailor. It refused the national obligation. It was worth most when our fotunes were the lowest.

Napoleon, O. STORIES OF STETSON. ONE OF THE MOST INTERESTING MEN EVER IN THE SHOW BUSINESS. An Ignorance Whose Depth and Breadth Made It Highly Entertaining Stetson Was a Source of Fan Oatslde of The atrical Circles as Well as Within Them. There is a man bora now find then frith a sort of humorous silver spoon iu iiis mouth. Uninterrupted geed fortune is a humorist smiles on him through ife, and that, too, with no seeming ;ffort of his own. He somehow acquires in early reputation for saying or doing funny things, which, once gained, noth ing can take away. All the jokes in his line of his gjncratiou, and often some Df earlier and later generations, are rredited to him, and nobody cares to dispute the honor. Collectors of jokes s e ready to accept Joe Miller as Joe Miller, but no literary scholar believes ihat he originated all the jests in his alleged book. Anybody can think for himself of two or three similar examples in the present half century, and, even jo, it is not likely that John Stetson ever really said all or half the amusing things that were attributed to him. They were good stories, some of them, and they were told of Stetson, just as the story of riddling while Rome burned was told of Nero, not because they were true, but to show what kind of man Stetson was. The stories which it was thought proper to fis upon John Stetson were those which exhibited any bread, com prehensive and picturesque ignorance. He was an ignorant man no doubt ig norant enough, perhaps, to say all the things that it was ever said that he said, but the chances are that he did not say them all. But the stories are none the worse for that. Years ago Sophocles' "CEdipus Tyrannus" was played by the students of Harvard col lege and excited great comment througn- out the country. It was discussed one evening at a dinner at which Stetson was present, and he cheered the com pany by announcing that he had con tracted with Sophocles for tne writing of a new pjay to be produced by him the tallowing season. This story belongs in the same class as a somewhat more elaborate one. Stetson once took possession of a new theater and discovered in the lobby a picture that did not meet his artistic taste. "Take tnat picture aown, ne said. "But. Mr. Stetson," somebody re monstrated, "that picture was painted by Michael Angelo." "Michael who?" said btetson. "Michael Angela" "Well, take it down," said Stetson, and discharge Angela I won't have any of these foreign scene painters around my theater; I'm going to em ploy Americans. " This so amused tnose wno neara it that they at once told the incident to friends of Stetson and themselves, and among them was Jack Haverly, the famous negro minstrel manager. Hav erly did not laugh when he heard it, but simply looked puzziea. .e tnougnt for a few moments, and then a faint smile came into his face, and he said, "Oh, yes, I see; there ain'tnosuch per son as Michael Angelo!" This answer wis thought good enough to take back to Stetson, who, it was as sumed, must have taken pains in the meantime to inform himself of the his tory of art sufficiently to understand it. "What do you think, Stetson?" said his friend. "We have told Jack Haverly what you said about Michael Angelo, and ho said, 'Oh, I see ; there ain't no such rjerson as Michael Angelol Stetson looked blank in his turn for a moment and then received his own little illumination as to the humor of the thins. "Whv. the ignorant old fool,' he said: "of course he ought to have said, 'There isn't any such person as Michael Ancelo. ' This story again recalls another with a similar touch in it The conversation once turned on a clever passage fn W. J. Florence's old play, "The Mighty Dollar," in which Bardwell Sloat ex poses his ignorance by referring to hackman whom be had encountered In Venice. "Yes," said Stetson, "that is clever; of course they don't have hacks in Venice; it'3 such a slow place they don't have anything but omnibuses and mule carts. " This fablo found its way into print again only a few weeks be fore Mr. Stetson's death. "What do you think of So-and-so?" Stetson asked of a friend, naming one of the actors of his company. He meant to ask what his friend thought of the way the actor was playing the part in which he was then engaged, but the friend supposed that he meant to ask what manner of man he thought him. So he answered, "He's well enough, only be seems to me to be a little too pedantic. " This struck Stetson as a good word, and he stored it up in his memory for future us& A few days later, when he met the actor, he said, "I was in front watching you last night and thought you didn't play that part quite as pe dantic as you usually da " Sometimes Mr. Stetson's expressions amounted to epigrams. It will be re membered that when Gilbert and Sulli van's "Tho Gondoliers' was first done in this country at the New Park theater, now the Herald Square, it was a dread ful failure. It was clearly and obvious ly so to anybody who saw any consid erable part of it, even if he were ordi narily a bad judge of such things, and Stetson was not a bad judge. He had se cured the rights to the opera for New England, and he had paid a good deal of money for them. He went to the New Park on the first night to see and hoar what his property looked and sounded like. After the first act he strode out into the lobby and somebody heard him mut ter:" 'Gondoliers?'
