Eepairs and Alterations 2ieatly Done, THE TOWER OF LONDON. , An Account of Those Who Have Been Ex ecuted There. . j The White Tower was built by Bishop Gundulph, of Rochester, under instruc tions of AVilliani the Conqueror, shortly1 after the battle of Hastings, in about the year 1070, and is practically in the same condition . to-day as it was when, in 1140, King Stephen kept his court there during Whitsuntide. Before Stephen', time, however, both William Rufus, the same who in 1097 built West minster Hall, and Henry L, sons of the Conqueror, had added other fortified places in the immediate neighborhood of the principal structure. Rufus com pleted his improvements by adding & surrounding wall of stone, nearly! pro voking an insurrection by his tyrannical way of forcing the people of the neigh boring counties to supply labor and ma terial. ' - ' The first prisoner of state confined in the Tower was Ranulph Flambord, Bi-hop of Durham, who was placed there by Henry on the death of Ruf us, as a punishment for his oppressions of the commons, Henry was somewhat of a demagogue, and posed before the people a3 a reformer. From this time the Tower was for ages used as a royal palace or a royal prison, with the varying accompaniments of public beheadings and secret assas sinations to add flavor to its history. Geffrey de Mandeville, Earl of Essex, grandson of the De Mandeville who fought under William at Hastings, was hereditary custodian of the Tower under Henry II. , and subsequently a prisoner in the same pile. King John was be sieged in it by the barons who brought him to terms'at Runnymede," and was compelled by them to cede its posses sion to the Archbishop of Canterbury as a pledge for the performance of certain conditions of the Great Charter. : But John broke faith as soon as he regained the Tower and the barons invited Lewis, Dauphin of France, to England, ; and gave him possession. k I ' The citizens of London in those days were desperately ill-disposed to the Tower, looking upon it as a threat to their liberties. It was so, also, : with the barons and burgesses of the king dom generally. This was shown when, in 1236, Henry IIL summoned a Parlia ment to meet him within the walls,. They unanimously refused to obey the summons, and the King had to return to Westminster. This monarch made several attempts to further strengthen the royal stronghold, but, after spend ing 12,000 marks on the undertaking, the works he had erected fell to the ground amid the rejoicings of the peo ple. -Vl- ' i The saddest epochs in all the sad his-j tory of the Tower were when Henry VI., the weak but amiable husband of rMar garet of Anjou, after the final defeat of the Lancastrians at Barnet, was mur dered within its precincts; when George, Duke of Clarence, brother of the con quering Yorkist, Edward TV. was done to death at the instigation of Richard, and when the latter, the crook-backed ruffian of whom Shakspeare has given us such a terriDie picture, cau ja nis nephews, the sons of Edward, to be murdered. Tradition says that this last crime was perpetrated in a certain tower facing the south side of the White Tower, and which forms a sort of inner gateway to the main entrance from the river. I ,V v.-: It is, however, in connection with the Beauchamp pronounced Beecham Tower that the longest list of tragic records' is to be found. This tower stands eastward, apart from the main, or White Tower, between which and it is the ground which has been reddened with the best and worst blood of England. Here the walls are eloquent with v carven work left by prisoners. The Percrills of Derbyshire; the roles or rooies, de scendants of Edward of York; the Dudleys, the Denes, and a hundred others have left their names engraven on the melancholy roll, with inscriptions testifying to their sorrow and their worth. There is one simple name there. however, which will stir the sympathies of mankind more than all else comr bined. "Jane" is the word ,that is twice repeated. It is the name of the poor girl who fell a victim to the am bitions of Northumberland and her hus band. Robert Dudley: who was crowned queen for but a few days, and then laid tier gentle neaa upon me diock mat Mary might reign. This, and such tragedies as tms, stain tne annais oi tne Tower; its bloody records were carried on through the reign of Jtiizabetn ana the Stuarts, and even within a hundred years some sad work has been wrought there: but none tnat can toucn tne heart like the short story that ends with "Jane, 'J St. Louis u lobe-Democrat. HONORS TO HEBREWS. The Deserved Prominence Which They Hold In London Society The wealthier families of Hebrews have long since taken up their quarters in the semi-fashionable neighborhood of Bayswater, Bloomsbury and elsewhere. The wealthier Jews of to-dpi,form a by no means small factor infbe very best society. The Rothschilds, the Sassons, the Goldschmidts, Behrends and Levvs are to be met with in the saloons of the noblest in the land. Probably the last barrier interfering with the complete social recognition of the Jews in the upper circles of London society was swept away when the present Earl of RoSebery led to the altar Hannah, daughter of Baron Meyer Rothschild, andalthough this is, perhaps, the only notable instance in which a member of the British aristocracy has sought a wife from the tents of Israel, marriages be tween Jews and Christians, although still sternly forbidden by the Hrbraio law of to-day. are by no means uncom mon. Leopold and Alfred de Roths child, sons of the late Baron Lionel, are as well known as men of fashion as they are in connection with the great city house of Rothschild in St. S within s Lnnft. Thev are both extremely liberal men, munificent patrons of art and- the drama, and Leopold Rothschild's colors are amongst : the most popular on the English turf. In financial matters, as all the world knows, the Jews, as repre sented by the house of Rothschild, are n the very front rank. London Vor. Han Francisco Clironicle, THE LOG-ROLLING. An Old-Time Concluding Demonstration and Banquet. Reader, did you ever form, one of . a party of old-time log-rollers? To the city folks and the latter-day people of easy habits, the very name may sound strange, but I assure them that nothing else ever done afforded .people a more genuine admixture of fun and hard work than log-rolling., To-day,- the generally accepted signification of the term is to the effect that somebody is tampering with Congress or the Legis lature to secure the passage of some personal measure. In the good old days of pioneer simplicity it had another. A man purchased a heavily timbered tract of land and set about reducing it sion to the plow. He and his sons and nephews and brothers ' ground their .. . t x nit's and wpnr mm Tho tnrocr ta otraif to the I6w bass uotes of ten degrees be-, low zero and hew out a farm. They chopped all winter long and carried off the best timber to the saw-mills, and split some more of it into rails with which to fence in the clearing, and left the tough and gnarled logs lying where they fell, and the brush piled in great heaps to be. burned. All through the chill and biting winter, the trees fell, and los weie trimmed of their brush, and with the first promising days of spring, ccme the log-rolling the grand concluding demonstration and banquet of the season. The word went out that Sam Smith would have a log-rolling on a given day. There were no gilt-edged, blue bevel invitations with the words "at home" printed on them in type which nobody could read, but Sam Smith's boy was sent around to tell the nearest neighbors about it and their boys spread it at the singing ' schools and spelling schools, and the announcement was' read from the pulpit of the country church on Sunday, and so everybody was bidden to Sam Smith's log-rolling . the women to aid in cooking, the men to aid in gathering the useless tim ber into great stacks to be burned. The women brought kettles and dishes, knives, forks and spoons; the men axes, chains, yokes of oxen and strong bodies. By sunrise the clearing was full of busy men. The seductive "whoa haw" of the ox engineer smote upon the morning air, and the logs were snaked along the muddy ground to the place where the heaps were to rise. The men and teams were di vided into squads, each squad to erect one heap. Sam Smith bossed the job and did not lift a pound. His principal duty was to sit on a convenient stump and shout "heave, o heave!" which ho usually abbreviated to "he o he," to encourage the msn when they had an extraordinary heavy log to be put upon the already high heap. The eti quette of these gatherings did not per mit him to lend a hand, although when twenty men could not lift an unusually heavy log to its place, it was his duty to declare that he could easily do it himself. This was generally accepted as a challenge of strength, and the men lifting would strain their lishts out to place the log. - By two o'clock, the losrs were all in and the clearing looked bare and stumpy compared with what had been its appearance in the mornLnsr. Sam imitn mounted tne nignest log heap made, and delivered himself of a tor rent of thanks to his neighbors, closing Dy inviting tnem to go to the house and eat a "snack." The snack was usu ally one of the most bounteous dinners ever spread. There were no frosted cakes and nno confections, but there was plenty of chicken and as good bread and rich gravy as were ever made, and mashed potatoes, and beans and hominy, and ham and eggs, and canned tomatoes, and dried green corn, and pickles, and stewed, jammed, marmaladed, jelled and preserved fruits and berries, and lucious green apple pies, and pumpk n S'es, and cookies, and fresh .. milk and oughnuts, and as good- appetites to eat them as were ever sharpened b v hard work, and when all were so full they had to unbutton their vests, the box of home-spun smoking tobacco was brmirht. nut urid t.h iutr rvf rlrl rift ' was passed, and the men fell to spin ning yarns wniie tne women ate and cleared away the - fragments of the meal. At four, the men again repaired to the clearing, and the torch was ap- piieu iu uiu uea.pa , yi logs, auu. wiieu ' darkness came on, the old folks went to their homes and left the young ones to eniov burning' the brush and spark ing. The next day there were some sore muscles in the neighborhood, but no headaches like those experienced by the revelers of to-day, and Sam Smith's clearing was ready for the plow. Through. Mail. The Sea of Galilee. One of the first thing3 for which I. looked here was the fishing industry; but I found it not There is evidently only one sailing vessel on the lake, and but a very small handful of clumsy row boats. When one of these boats gets out of order there is general consterna tion, it is said, for the art of shipbuild ing is no longer known here. When we sent our servant to-day w'.th instruc tions to procure Galilee fish for dinner he was unable to find a single fish in the market. This is especially strange, inasmuch as I have had positive evi dence that the waters swarm with pis catorial life to-day, just as in the days when Christ called Gal.lean fishermen Yet fishing is still carried on here on a small scale. Even last night I saw a boat push out to sea with nets aboard, just as Simon did no doubt, when he was bound to "toil all night" at the same business. ' This leads me to guess or, at least, to hope, that the citizens were not quite so lazy and worthless in thedays of the Son of Man. They could not have been any worse. The modern Galilean would ride two-thirds the wsy around the lake on the ragged back cf donkey or camel rather than display the enter prise required to effect a crossing in one-sixth the time by boat Stupidicy and cupidity are everywhere linked in a way that, sorely tries Occidental patience Cor.
