labyrinth than a palace. It was the
production and the abode of fear unut

it- To guard against conspirators get

was continually changing its internal j
arrangements, walling up doors, open- j
ins new ones, narrowing passages, di
viding rooms by partitions, making'
windows and closing them again. It j
was a constantly changing maze.
To spare himself the danger of cross
ing the graveled path that separated
his apartments from bis harem he had
linked his residence by flying bridges
to the harem on the one side and to
the Imperial theater on the other. This
theater was a gloomy little place,
where the monarch would sit entirely
hidden from view In his box while ac
tresses and singers from Paris and
other European cities entertained him.
He never came into view, never ap
plauded, and the visible audience con
sisted of a few members of bis family.
The building used by Abdul Hamid
as his private residence looked more
like a prison, for all the lower win

heavy iron doors were of great
strength and capable of being firmly

The marriage customs of the Pap

of many other 6avage races. The cer
emony is largely a matter oi purchase.
The men marry when they are about
eighteen years of age and the girls at
fourteen or even earlier.

get married he visits the father of his
prospective bride and puts forward

DEATH IN THEIR WORK.
. Dangers That Beset Those Who Toil
In Alkl: Factories.
Do yon like your work?
When you are Inclined to be discon
tented with it think of the alkali work
ers. They die by inches from the mo
ment they enter the factories. Things
are not so bad now as they once were,
but they are bad enongh still.
In what is known as the "black ash"
department in chemical works big
open vats of caustic are used. The
splashing of this caustic sends drops
of the burning fluid flying through the
air. A drop falling upon naked flesh
causes a bad burn. A drop In the eye
will blind it forever If the stuff Is not
removed within a few seconds.
A black ash worker In a Welsh al
kali factory, toiling at the caufrtic pots,
received an Invisible globule of this
deadly spray In his eye. There was
no water at hand with which to wash
out the caustic. It seemed that he
must surely go blind. But one of his
mafes seized on the Injured man, who
was quite frantic with pain, lifted his
eyelid with forefinger and thumb and
with his tongue licked out tho caustic,
lie burned his tongue badly, but he
saved the other poor fellow's sight.
Another of the dangers that beset tho
alkali worker and the worst of them
all Is poisoning by chlorine acid gas.
This gns. which comes off the lime In
thin green fumes, is known to the men
