Yildiz, scene of innumerable horrors, bad been built by Abdul Hamid him self, und he had made It more like a labyrinth than a palace. It was the production and the abode of fear unut terable. Surely no sane mind planned it- To guard against conspirators get ting a nlan of his residence its master 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 dows were securely barred and the heavy iron doors were of great strength and capable of being firmly bolted Inside. Every room in the palace was pro vided with a couch on whih the sul tan could sleep if he felt inclined. Xo body ever knew in what room he would sleep on any given nlht. Be fore retiring to rest be would some times call his attendants and say to them: "Keep a good lookout. I am goiiijr to sleep tonii'ht in this root:'.." Uut he would Invariably sleep some where else.

Sometimes he would come out of his sleep with a start, frightened by a nightmare, and that would mean hours of wakeful ness. At such times he would find the solitude of his room unbearable, and he would send for a sorcerer, who would explain the dream, or a slave, who would read to him from one of his favorite books, those giving de tailed accounts of assassinations, exe cutions and other horrors. He was always armed.

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 and Joked alwut as 'Ttoger." A full in draft of the gas kills a mau in an hour. Pearson's Weekly.
