The precise structure standing here to
ga. is known to have been occupied as an
inn for upwards of 500 years. It is charm"
imrlv pi turosque without, and Its in
terier is most,quaintly arranged, with
odd leinks and corners, while the lirstfloor
of the east wing has a fine old room with
a curiously carved chimney- piece in stone,
other interesting ornamentation, and a
wondrous lot of charming traditions about
the great folk, some on desperate business,
like diaries 1., in 1045, and Cromwell, in
IHM. who havo lodged within it. Broad
way itself is the sweetest old English
pastoral village idyl to he found in Eng
land, and. to mo. this ancient hostelry,
with its Tudor chimneys, its many gables
and dormers, its stone and iron liniuls,

and vines, is Its warmest and mellowest

The old cathedral city of Gloucester
jmsess s several very ancient ini* which
a:vstill in use, two of which nre regard
ed as among the most interesting sights
of the place by all foreign travelers. One
of these, the Now Inn, is an extraordi
nary relic of very ancient times and deep
ly interesting from its great age, its hos
torical associations and its extremely
meturseque character, its architecture
having many features in common with
the larger and distinctly moresquo inns
of Spain and Portugal.
Readers of history will recall that the
splendid south aisle of Gloucester's mag
nificent cathedral was built in 1818 by Ab
bot Thokey, during the period of whose
abbacy the body of murdered King Ed
ward 11. which had boon refused Inter
ment in the abbeys Malmesbury, Kings
v.nod and Bristol, was given burial with
in it. Great pilgrimages to Edward’s
tomb, and wonderfully increased revenues
to the then abbey church resulted. The
throngs were sometimes so enormous that
the city could, not Shelter them, and they
were nblidged to encamp at night outside
the gates. A shrewd old monk, named
John Tm-nius, taking proper advantage
of the situation, i 1450, under the abbacy
and with the sanction and assistance of
the famous abbot, Thomas Seabroke,
built the New Inn, which at the time
doubtless had no superior as a public hos
telry in Europe. Think of taking your
ease in your inn, ns you can do in the New
Inn of Gloucester to-day, in a tavern
which has survived the changes of 4411
years and never boon closed a day!

his family, with wild and desolate physi
cal surroundings in keeping with the hope
lessness of the school-life of the place it
self. was the Dotheboys Hall, still stand
ng in Bowes—hardly a stone’s throw from
the ancient Unicorn inn, the house being
now occupied by “old man Bonsfleld, - ’
husband of the veritable Squeor's daugh
ter, Fanny Squeers. known in life as Ma
ry Ann Shaw—where “Nicholas Nicltle
by,” his protege in misery the wretched
“Sraike,” and scores of other helpless
young lives: are depicted as having under
gone an almost inconceivable life of serv
itude, starvation and cruelty.
Investigations showed that the horri
ble picture drawn was not an exaggera
tion, and bore out Dickens’ own statement
in the original preface that “Mr. Squeers
and his school are faint and feoble pict
ures of an existing reality, purposely sub
dued and kept down lest they should be
deemed impossible." This, Dickens sec
ond, and in some respects his greatest,
novel was begun in April, 1 Silk, and fin
ished in October, 1889. At the appear
ance of the first part, he ran away from
London, as ho always did, to remain in
hiding until a distinct measure of public
favor or disfavor was shown. In the case
of "Nicholas Nickleby" his forgivable
skulking was of short duration. The first
day’s sale of the first part exceeded 50,-
000 copies. Not six months had passed
before the torture and cruelty to helpless
scholars in these remote prison-pens were
abated, and before the last chapter of
“Nicholas Nickleby" had been read, pub
lic feeling, which in many portions of the
country barely escaped expression iu riot,
had annihilated every child-hell of the
Dotheboys Hall variety in England.
If you came from Ixmdon to Bowes over
the sarao coqch-road as did Nicholas
Nickleby, wjien, nearing the end of Ills
dreary journey, "at about 0 o'clock that
night, he and Mr. Squeers and the little
boys and their united luggage were (sit
down at the Georga and New Inn,” you
would have come by the old coach road
from lyondon to Edinburgh and Glasgow.
On leaving the ancient city of York you
would have struck Into a highway 2,000
years old. Masses of Homan legions have
swept, tide on tide, back and forth over the
same stone road. Stern Agrieola, the
eourtlv Tacitus and Emperor Servius him
self, have ridden towards the unconquer
able North upon it. The latter left 50.000
of his army dead among the Scotch mists
and mountains, and with his face set to
wards Rome and home’, only reached York
to die of his wounds and chagrin.
It is the great,Roman road of England.
Watling, or Waltbllng, street it is called.
Away iu tho north of Yorkshire, a few
tniles above Cntteriek Bribge, ono stem
of this highway goes on through Durham
and Northumberland, and thence to Edin
burgh. The other swings around to the
westward traversing Westmoreland and
Cumberland t hrough Carlisle to the groat
Roman wall, which once protected Britain
from the Calodoninn hordes, and thence,
In a more modern coach read, winds
through the olden lovers' haven, Gretna
Green, to Glasgow. .On this western
stem, between the rivers Te,es and Greta,
at the eastern edge of Stanemoor, nearly
surrounded by de9olate%noors, and in the
northwest corner of Yorkshire, lies what
is.left of Bowes.
It is difficult not to wander away from a
description of the Old Unicom Inn; at
Bowes, among the literary and antiqua
rian things.or interest in it,s neigborliood.
The Inn itself must not be confounded,
even under its old name of the George,
with ttie George Inn of Greta bridge, six
miles nearer York, now used as a corn
mill. To disguise the exact location of
Dotheboys Hall, Dickens made Squeers
(Shaw) travel with young Nickleby three
miles from tho George Inn at Greta bridge
to the Supposititious "Hair’ followed by
the “cart-load of infuyt misery.” What
they really did do was to dismount all
together from the York aud Carlisle
coach within the inn-yard of this very
Unicorn, and then shiver along the crook
ed, cobbled single street of Bowes, until
they arrived at tho “long, oold-looking
house,” a little way beyond to the west,
and “a tall, loan boy (poor Smike!) with
a lantern in liis band issued forth.”
The Unicom, which seems to have com
pletely escaped the attention of English
antiquarians and travelers, is not only re
markable from its associations, in having
been the most important inn near the bor
der, between York and Glasgow and Ed
inburgh in olden times, but in also being
the largest of those ancient English road
side hostelries still extant which were'
called into existence by the necessities of
travel in the old coaching days.
At its very door the Royal Mail began
the ascent over tho Great North Hoad of
weird, dreary and vast Stanomoor. peo

ever save from howling tempest; and with
no semblaee of humans upon it, save at its
desolate top, where William the Conquer
ed- and Malcolm of Soot’and fought dread

of their respective kingdoms; and then
wisely stopi>ed and feasted, sensibly de
ciding that on the very spot, should be
raised the great Roi (nod- Here) cross, or
“Cross of Kings,” on one side of which
was graven the imageof William, and on
the other that of Malcolm; but 800 years
have eaten theso old faces away; and none
others will be seen until Kirltby Stephen,
nestling in the valley, on the other side
towards ancient Penrith und Carlisle, is
reached; all of whfoh gave traveler's
cheer at tho Unicorn a special zust not
unmixed with tinge of dread.
Its form is of a double quadrangle, each
fully 100 feet square. The ono next the
street has its entire front open to the
great ihn-yard thus formed. The two
sides abutting tho street comprised re
spectively the inn proper—a long, two
storied and gar re ted stone structure, with
a perfect maze of curious old rooms ap
proached by outlandish stairs, entries and
landings, and rendered additlonallyibe

huge brew-house, with dozens of granar

posite the street provided offices and
sleeping accommodations for guards, post
boys. whips and all those inn-helpers con
cerned iu working the coaches, or dealing
with the tired eattlo of the many trave

and wagoners passing between England
and Scotland a century ago.
In this quadrangle are also many open
stone sheds, with tiled roofs, Stone feed

where private vehicles and wagoners
could find temporary shelter in great num

huge buttons and gorgeous waistcoats, led
lives of positive renown; where the tinkle
of harness brasses and clatter of hoof

where the smartcryiof "first pair out!”
set the inn-yard and stables in high com

RAIL AND CSOSSTIE.
The Railway Age has published a re
port of track laying in the country during
the first half of IS9B. It says: It is the
general impression that thus far this
year construction has been at a standstill,
aud yet the footing of our returns shows
that in the six months ending June :>
track has boen laid down on 95 different
lines, lying ln iid of the states and territo
ries, to an aggregate length of 1,015 miles
of main line, besides hundreds of miles of
sidings, additional 'tracks and renewals.
Considering that the length of track
laid in the first half of the yqj| is but a
partial indication ef the amount of work
doneon construction, this is as much as
could be expected. Last year at this
time wo reported 1,867 miles of track
luid and the total for the year was a little
short of 4,200 miles. At the same ratio
the total new mileage of 1898 will be
about 8,000 miles, and this, we presume,
will not lie far from the actual total.
There are legitimate enterprises now
under way sufficient to give a considera
ably larger mileage before the end
qf the year; out unless finan
cial conditions greatly improve
tho completion of a num
ber of them will be postponed. On the
other hand, a number of short lines which
have not commenced traclriaying will be
pushed through becauso they are needed
and will givo returns on the Investment.
The year 1893 will doubtless show a
smaller increase of railway mileage in
tho United States tliatr any year since
18T8, with the possible exception of 1885,
when the total fell under ’3,000: but for
all that new enterprises are constantly
being reported, and better times will see
a marked increased of activity in this im
portant direction.
The New York Central company has
agreed to pay Mrs. Homer R. Baldwin
$50,000 in settlement of her claim for in
juries received in the disaster on that
road at Hastings, N. Y., Christmas even
ing, 1891, although she was traveling on a
pass. Xhis is probably the largest sum
over paid by a railway company in settle
ment of a piqim for personal injuries.

CHECK REINS.
A Few Words Against the Useless
Cheek Reins.
Editor of the Morning News:
Feeling assured that I can reach a large
number of people through your columns.
1 wish to make an appeal to their bettor
feelings in behalf of tiicir mute and de
fenseless horses. While most of horses
would scorn to inflict what might be
called overt acts of cruelty, it Is yet sur
prising to see how many will use and
permit the use of cheek reins on their
horses. A minute reflection ought to con
vince the most callous mind that n chock
rein deprives a horse of comfort, and that
of itself ought to be enough to discard
its use. But it is worse than a
mere discomfort; it is painful; it is often
the cqpelest sort of torture.
Think for a moment how tiresome it
must become to keep the head strapped
up so long in oue position, what a relief it
would be to the poor horse to move it
about, to stretch it out, to toss it up and
down, but the chock-rein prevents this.
And then the flies, how troublesome
they are these hot days, even to us with
our hands free to brush them off, and our
handkerchief and oor fans ifnd other pro
tections; but the poor horse has to endure
them without even the privilege of na
ture's defense—the free use of his head.
If there was any substantial advantage
derived from it there might be some ex
cuse, but there is no advantage, and an
excuse is not justification even if you find
an excuse. I'll tell you what, it is; it’s
pride, it's fashion; ns the negroes say,
“It's de style”. It is a selfish spirit; that
would impose additional hardships upon
defenseless animals in order to gratify a
frivilous pride. Because it is the custom
does not make it right. The sensibilities
may become so blunted by seeing it every
day as to disguise tho eruolty of it, but do
not let the harder feelings prevail, be
merciful to your horses.
Since it would not diminish the useful
ness of your horse, since it would not
cause any great sacrifice on your part,
and since it wouid conduce so much to the
comfort and relief of the animal that is
compelled to be your slave and earn your
dollars, then, in the name of mercy, take
the check-rein off. Be generous, be con
siderate. be merciful. Substitute tlu-se
virtues in place of selfishness and pride.
W. B. Wells.
A LIVE ISSUE.
Everybody Should Vote for “No
Fence.”
Editor of the Morning News: Next
Wednesday, Jfily 5, being the day fixed
for voting for “fence” or “no fence,” it
becomes necessary for every one in favor
of “no fence,” not only to voto for it, but
to do all thc'Y onn to get votes among
their acquaintances. Tho “fence” law
has always been iu existence, and tho re
sult of it to-day is that there are hun
dreds of acres of land in Chatham county
that are now a waste, that numbers of
poor, lean stock are now running about
without proper shelter or food, breaking
down fences to get something to eat, Ailing
up ditches in getting water to drink,and in
every way menacing the health und in
terest of the people, whereas, if wo had a
"no fence” law, which means to keep up
hogs and cattle, it would allow
all the waste ground to he
cultivated. Numbers of small-farms would
occupy the ground bet ween Savannah and
White Bluff. Isle of Hope, Montgomery
and Thunderbolt, as well as thesurround
ing country, and both white and colored
people could have some means of support
during tho summer months, when work is
scarce in the city. Besides tho electric
lines will run anywhere if there is much
of a settlement, and those who now keep
two or three cows (that feed on their
neighbors’ farms) could raise onough for
them at loss cost than keeping up a fence
around their farms, and then there would
bo plenty of pastures where they could
have their cows kept from 50 cents to (1
per month without having them milked,
shot or crippled, and where they could
get thorn when wanted without spending
hours in finding them. Real estate would
enhance iu value and outside of the city

All About the Judges.
Editor iMorning News:—Will you
kindly inform me through your columns,
1: What is the difference between tho
United States eireuit court and the
United States district court in Georgia!
Ans. A circuit court has Jurisdic
tion over several states and is a higher
court, A district court lias jurisdiction
ln only a district which is one state, or
only a part of a state.
2. Who is the United States circuit
judge in Georgia?
Ans: Judge Pardee. He is also a
member of tho new court of appeals.
3rd: Is Judge Pardoe a circuit Judge?
If so, of what circuit!
Ans: This circuit is the Fifth and
contains Alabama, Forlda, Georgia,
Louslanna, Mississippi and Texas.
4. Is tho circuit court now in session
here in its regular or called session? Why
does Justice Jackson preside now and
why did Judge Pardee preside here be
fore! Ans.: Special session; the Cen
tral railroad case was specialy brought
before Justice Jackson. There are nine
eireuitsiin the United States and there
are nine judges in the United State su
prme court—one for each circuit (Mr.
Justice Jackson is a J usice of tqe United
States suprme court and this, the Fifth
is his circuit. He comes to the circuit
only when something of unusual import
ance calls him here. He outrunks
Judge Pardee.

Pierce’s Golden Medical
Discovery. Go to a to
