When Kiog Alfred ruled England there were no surveyor;' whom the farmers of that county could eail to their aid when tbey desired to t-tnke t.U a tract of land. Even to keep the comet parish bouudaiies there was no scientific method. Yet the bounda riee were kept, and that in a most odd man? ner. Every Heven years a general holiday wad declared for the purpose of "beating the nouuds," the festival being known as "Whipping the Boys." All the male popu? lation came together and with ibe church warden at their head tbey walked around the boundary of the paiiab in single file. At certain points a boy was whipped or bumped against n wall to make him remem? ber the snot. Seven yeurs from that day he ?n turu whipped another boy, thus preserv? ing (be corner stones of the boundary These corner stones were at first plain rocks, selected on account of their size, but later on they grew to great siz9 and were often beautifully carved, beiog put up at great expense. Whenever any important point, euch as the centre of a town, the corner of a great lord's estate, or the site of a famous battle was to be marked, the crosses erected were many feet bigb and often very beautifully wrought of carved stone. Nearly every town bad ite cross in the centre of it, and as the trading was done in the open tquare about it, the piles soon came to be called Market oroeses, and from that began to be used for many curious pur? poses. There were no newspapers of course in those days. Indeed there was not much uewB, but once io awhile tbe King bad cer tain tbiugs which be wished bis subjects to know, aud bp, since it was in such a public place, the notice was poEted upon tbe croes. In early English times, too, there were friars, or priests, who went about from town to town preaching to people wherever they could get them together to listen. As there were mauy in the market place, the friars mado it a rule to goon market days, mount the steps of tbe cross, and talk to the sellers and buyers upon the necessity of honest deal? ing. There were crosses for weeping or doing peuance, for wrong doing and others for sanctuary. Tbe latter was an important funotiou, Iu those days might made right, Nearly ever\body himself punished offenses ?gains himself. Now if one is attacked he cills for legal proteotion ; then he under? took, by the aid of his friends, to inflict the punishment himself. At euch times it was the right of tbe man attacked to Bee to the church, in which bis pursuers dare r.ot come aud take bim. Toe churches were often not open and so there were boundaries outside the church into which if the pursued man came he was safe, and tbtBe boundaries were marked by cros-es. The most famous ia all England is Char log Cross, uot that it was handsomer or cost mure than tbe others, but because it was, and still is, the centre of the great city of London. Tnat is to Baj , it in tbe point from which all distances are reckoned, from which nearly oil dues of omnibuses ruo, and the like. Ocher famous crosses, around w'niob eoeneB more or less historic and often bloody and brutal have taken place, are Abindon, Salis? bury, GeddiDgton and Cbichester Crosses. There is a beautiful cross at Oxford, a mod em one, in memory of some early bishops who were burned at the stake. Almost everybody has beard of Billings? gate. It was no' market croBS?for BillingB gateis a market, and not solely a volley of bad words. I suppose tbe latter idea arose from the character of the people who fre queut tbe famous marker. Billingsgate is iu the East End of London, not far fr .m that fateful Tower Hill, where so many executions on the block have taken place. Only fi-b is sold iu tbe market, and a wet, disugteeble, bad smelling and bad looking place it is. But then, you can buy any sort of fish there that tbe world affords. And not ouly can you buy these fish there, but you may also have them cooked, Billings? gate stylo, which is supposed to b^e the per? fection of fish-cookery, and eat them on the spot?if one has tbe stomach to enjoy a meal io such a place.
