butmust hasten on We bade farewell to Rome Mon day morning May 25th and went by train to the beautiful city of Florence via Pisa We had three hours at Pisa which is a town of seme importance We climbed the leaning tower which is 179 ft high and leans 18 feet and it makes one feel a little uneasy when he looks down from tower side We wonder why the thing dont tumble over The baptistry here is a circular building with a splendid dome the whole building being 100 feet high It was begun in 1158 We sang the doxology while in it and the echo is the finest I ever heard The baptismal fount is in the cen ter and consists of circular basin four feet deepfor the immersion of convertsThe Santo at this place has some rare paintings Among the most important are Triumphs of Death and Purgatory Af ter viewing these paintings c we returned to the station and arrived there about 630 p m Took lodging at the Berchilla Hotel on the bank of the beautiful river Arno which divides the city into two equal parts It is situated in an extensive plain surrounded by hills nearly all of which are cultivated to the summit It has a population of about 200000 and like allother cities of Italy has a wonderful history Its origin is in obscurity more or less In 1848 the bubonic plague carried off almost twothirds of its popu lation We saw the Santa Croce Church which is sometimes called the Italian Panthion It was erected first about 1295 A D The tomb of Michael Angelo is in this church in which are the statutes of the three Sisterarts The portrait of Michael Angelo is by Lorenzi and is a master paint ing Florence deserves to be call ed the city of arts In her galler ies are to be found some of the master pieces by the master painters of the 15th century St Peter delivered from prison Noahs Ark and the Deluge etc The first hallcontains 8007 paintings 1 722 drawings by the art workers of all schools from the thirteenth to the sixteenth century and lam safe in saying that Florence has the finest art gallery in all Italy The Transfiguration Sacrifice of Abraham j The Marriage in Cana i Adam and Eve expelled from Par adise and the Holy family by Michael Angelo These are all fine paintings found in the galleries of Florence There are other places in Flor ence worthy of note but we pass on to Venice We left Florence at 2 oclock May 29 and arrivedat Venice that night at 1040 We had some adventures in Venice We had some trouble in securing a hotel to suit us We found a few hotel porters at the station and we bargained with one whose house was near the depot but when we arrived things did not show up to suit us and we conclud ed to hunt another So we called a gondola and embarked to hunt a hotel Our baggage all in the boat and it being a late hour it appeared that the hotels wanted to take advantage of our situation and put up the price of board One wanted nino francs another fifteen and another was full So there we were sailing around in the streets of Venice at 11 oclock strangers in a strange city hunt jng a hotel Finally our boatman parrfed ns fo one Jhat suited and we soon arranged for the re mainder of the night and went to rest at once Venice in some respects is the most peculiar city jn the rgorld When we awqke upxt morning therp W fa quiet atilt pegs that exists IQ no other city on the globe Not a single wagon carriage streetcar nor any Bother vehicle could be beard in the city There is not a horse nor a work beset of any kind not even a don key ia the city It is built appar ently iBthe sea ande aeven siilea o J in circumference and is divided by the Grand Canal into two equal parts and has a population of 168000 There are 146 canals that take the place of streets and these are spaned by 400 bridges which hold the city in compac- tS that despite the watery ways you can walk all over Venice from one end to the other The famous gondolas are numerous here and if you do not wish to walk you can have a pleasant sail at any time and go any where you wish in the city or around it The gondoliers are pround of their vocation and they sre ready at all times to ac commodato the travelers They stand on the rear end of the veseel and conduct it with such skill that no other boatmen anywhere have attained The gondolas are all shaped alike and are all painted blackthelr shape peculiar The shape is graceful and makes them easy to manage and they can make good speed when required Many of them are very elegant and highly ornamented The way they came to be black it is said was an edict in the Fifteen Century causing them all to put on mourn ing to Check undue competition and extravagance in decoration but in truth it was done for polit ical intrigue The Gondola does duty for the cab omnibus cart coach wagon wheelbarrow and horse It is found everywhere and everybody travels in them The climate of Venice is temper ate The mean temperature being about 87 degrees in January the coldest month and about 78 de grees from June to August the warmest months The air is free from dust but not from dampness Mosquitoes and gnats are trouble some in hot weather We will men tion a few of the principle sights to be seen in Venice and leave it The Piazza of St Mark is the the largest open square in Venice and is surrounded with some of the most interesting buildings in the place in fact it is the finest place of the kind in all Europe It forms a half square as well as two squares or quadrangle It forms an entrance to Venice from the sea Every evening in suitable weather it is the grand resort of all ranks of men and wo men All public demonstrations political and religious are held here and in no other city in the world does the life of the place so center in one spot In summer a good band plays here twice every week St Marks church which stands at the west corner is per haps the most important building around the piazza It is the finest building in the city and tradition has it that as early as 550 A D a church stood on this spot and was dedicated to St Theodore In the year 820 the body of St Mark the Evangelist which had long lain in the Temple founded by himself at Alexandria if cred it to prevalent tradation can be given was transferred to Venice by two merchants of the latter city St Mark then became the patron Saint of Venice and his re mains repose it is believed under the high altar Te church is built in the shape of a Greek cross and occupies all o f the eastern end of the piazzi The inside of the church i sa marvelous museum Every country where the fleet of Venice penetrated has been laid under contribution and the guide is continually pointing out the special things from the different countries There are four columns under one of the al tars of alabaster said to have be longed t the temple of Solomon of JerusalemIn the church stands the Campanile or bell tower of St Marks It is of brick 40 feet square aPt hasp apd f5Q feet high it was commenced in the tenth century and completed in sixteenth century The tower haa no steps but if asceujled by aja ins clined pjapa all the way up and is very easy ofascent We climbed it and had ft spledid view of all the oity On the left of St Marks stands the sloektewer erected by Pietro Lombardo in 14Q6On the dial plate are marked the twtabyfour hours the wfM of Use Zodiac ami the of the mooa Above this iilMEitiMiMi between two ii doors and we were told to watch when the clock stuck and we did so and just after each hour is marked by strokes on a bell at the top by a man standing there with a big hammer in his hand always ready to strike out came an angel with a big trumpet which he blow ed bowed to the Madonna and passed on He was followed by the three gentlemen called the wise men or sacred kings one of whom is as black asynight These all bow to the virgin and pass in to a door on the right which closes after them While this perform ance is passing there is another gentleman at the top on the right of the bells pealing forth with all his might We learned the per formances only occurred one week in the year at some festival and we were iii luck to see it At Venice the first book printed in Italy Was issued from the press It was the Familiar Epistles of Cicero printed by Jean de Spire in 1469 The first editions of the Bible and of the classics were is sued at Venice At the beginning of the seventeenth century the first news paper in the world ap peared at Venice Being sold for the coin called Gazetta it thence took its name Garette At Venice appeared the first Bill of exchange tho first Bank of Deposit and Dis count Artillery was first invent ed by the Venicians The most famous glass mauufacturies are found in and around Venice Mu rano is one mile and three quar ters from Venice where the cele brated Venecian glass is made We visited some of the glass man ufacturies in the city and saw them blowing glass into all shapes The Dogess Palace here was founded in the 820 and was de stroyed and rebuilt five times and each reconstruction has pro duced a more magnificient build ing It is now ohly a picture gal lery and a museum but it still re tains all its beauty and magnifi cience on the inside Cadmus who invented the alphabet wasa Ven ecian But I have written now too much about this historic city which figures largely in the history of Italy My next will be from Venice to Paris IS IT RIGHT For an Editor to Recommend Patent Medicines From Sylvan Valley News Brevard NCIt may be a question whether the editor of a newspaper has the right to publicly recommend any of the various proprietary medicines which flood the market yet as a preventive of suffer ing we feel it a duty to say a good word for Chamberlain Colic Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy We have known and used this medicine in our family for twenty years and have al ways found it reliable In many cases a dose of this remedy would save hours of suffering while a physician is awaited We do not believe in depending implicitly on any medicine for a cure but we do believe that if a bottle of Chamberlains Diarrhoea Remedy were kept on band and administered the Inception ofan attack much suffering might be avoided and in very many cases the presence of a physician would not be required At least this has been our experience during the past twenty years Formic by M Cravens There are hundreds and hundreds of Republicans wl oare thoroughly dig guested with McKinley because they regard him merely as a puppet in the hands of Mark Hanna but the chance is they wont have the courage to show their courage at the

Noel of Ashville Kansas says he spent a good farm doctoring himself for chronic diarrhoea but got no relief and was afraid that he must die He chanced to get hold of a bottle of Chamberlains Colic Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy and was perma nently cured by it For sale by M Cravens The burden of the Republican man agers in the campaign will be to defend the party against the charge of drifting toward imperialism Hither to they have sought to ridicule the suggestion into insignificance but as the position of many prominent Republicans becomes known it is quite evident that tho issue is going
