Cologne At last I am in Kaiserland because the Kaiser Is the whole thing you know My first stop was nt Cologne The Kais er said the town had to be spelt Koln and so the good old name associated withI n perfume made In this city Is no more By tho way thero nre about stores In Cologne which sell tho only genuine Cologne I learned that none of the Cologne manufactured there or at least very little of It Is sold there Tho only genuine Cologne which is in such great evidence In the windows Is made In Paris Cologne Is n beautiful city The peoplo finn looking richly dressed and and prosperous appearing I saw no res idence streets In Paris or London equal Ito those of the new part of Cologne The has 300000 inhabitants absolute ly clean not a scrap of paper Is thrown either In iilley or street The Cathedral credited with being tie greatest piece of Gothic architecture In the world It is Colognes big slow In fact the most to bo seen In Europe Is monstrously big churches nnd gloomy old paintings of aI sacred character Birt you will all bo In cathedmljolr continuing antI stopping nt odd times thereafter Napoleon once occupied this church for his caynlry nnd horses poleon must ho regarded ono of tho worlds greatest freethinkers as ho made manifest on all hands that the church must bo tributary to the state and its property utilized by the state when ed It must be remembered that ho did these things In a day and time when it was a dangerous thing to oppose the church aa In so doing ho jeopardized his whole political and military career Story They Tell Tho reason work was stopped on tho cathedral tho last time In was ow ing to tho loss of tho original plans of the architect The building had then beenI completed up to the two great spires which now tower in tho air feet ery corner and nook of the city had been searched for the original plans without finding them Finally a saintly devotee of the church found them For a long time he had prayed Omi to grant him tho honor of the discovery and promised that If he would help him to find tho plans he would give his soul to the devil Sure enough God helped him to find them This was in ISM anti they went ahead and completed tho church requiring about years In tho meantime tho fel low who had given his soul to the devil died but tho devil wouldnt have his soul antI In a devil of a fix was he nnd just what became of his soul neith er God nor tho devil nor the Bishop knows to this day and none of the people have seen In thereabout The Exterior Of this stupendous structure Is beyond my descriptive powers To whom all this a monument I asked myaelf T- obL i Jesus Christ No for whatever other weakness he may have had ho was not vain This great temple salt I Is a monument to human stupidity and vanl ty und Its beauty anti strength and pro portion a monument to tho architect Ah tho inlrid that could conceive and plan and proportion and adorn such stone to such a perfect and colossal shapehis tho monument To give you somo Idea of tho ornate touches counted carved figures over and around just ono of tho side doors curved figures over and around tho three front doors Most of these fig ures were of Jesus kings saints apos ties angels etc to say nothing of lions lambs peacocks billygoats logs and grapevines I noticed that the mints etc lire placed low about the doors while tho griffins are placed high them There were of those stone grlfllns all about five feet in length cntcndlng out from the church cornices In a threatening manner Their mouths are bittingIdoing the other In frightfulness anti fe melt Tho purpose of these stone im ages Is to protect tho saints carved be low them and to frighten Intldels and keep had and unclean spirits out of Gods holy temple They all seemed to have their evil eyes right on me but durn yer ugly pictures said Im goln In The Interior magnificent vast towering pillars and arches feet high beautifully carved und the mont magnificently stain ed windows in the

every day In Paris and Intend keep- Ing It up on my trip that may form a just opinion of this form of worship In this great church the congregation all joined In a hymn and it was very sweet There were a great many good voices am very fond of some church musto nnd tho effect Is soothing and pleasing to me But was thoroughly disgusted with the blind submission of the people Tlngallngllng would

The Treasury Is tho room containing the relics It cost me two marks cents but I paid it willingly For tho first time In Ute I saw a piece of The True Cross Now you neednt laugh and say Chest nut The piece Is there about the size of a steel pen very precious and It Is a piece of the true cross for I saw it with mine own eyes antI it was in a glass jewelled ease with stones value enough to endow an old womans home saw the skeleton of an old German saint Ills bones from bend to foot were thickly plated with gold These golden runninggears have great curative prop erties and nt twentylive cents a touch will cure a menstrual flux a rhronlr diar rhea or the old bone ager sw numer ous other precious bones and apostolic splinters and napkins soaked with the blood of martyrs which blood though dried for a thousand years gets a spurt on Itself now and then and runs all around over tho napkin This rare and accontrlc transformation takes place generally when the finances of the church run low At the time of these moist spells thu napkin will euro most any ills ease and well worth trying In nil those eases where the doctors hAve failed There are numerous tomba In this great church Some are the walls somo In tho floor and some In big stone sarcopaguscs One In particular hall a stone Imago of the Inclosed saint lying on Its back on top of the sarcopagus This Imago hell In especial veneration It was In a big cage ant could only be seen through heavy Iron bars This stone Image for its entire length was eo1 ored with a heavy arched wire screen just like a rat trap and the screen firmly fastened to the sacophacus This J sup pose is to keep the durn old Image from walkln off and they cant afford to let a good moneymaker give them the slip so they have the old stone igccser faa toned down so hell stay right there nut I cant give more space to this church I could write six columns about any of these churches and to give you a variety of item I must only glance at things The Imperial Mustache As soon as I approached the stations of the German frontier I noticed that tho mustaches all turned up nlaKalser When I got into Cologne every mustache pointed toward tho north star antI till particularly long ones ran up toward the eye then nt a square right angle back toward tho ear Just like nn Inverted I I was told that they Intro a little mach ine to train them that way Anyhow Germans exhibited a patriotism equal to that of tho aristocratic English ladles who used to limp In their walk because Queen Alexandria limped from rheuma tism It is said that the German army officers wear corsets After awhile they will bo ualng bust developers I reckon and by that time there will be some sense in talking of the yellow peril But back to the mustache I spent sev anti hours training my own In the Kals or fashion My wife thinks I bear a close resemblance to William and It is too bad that since I look so much him that I cant get on terms with Ood Al mighty like he can Alter sitting up two hours at night to train my mustache and an hour before breakfast I had what you might call a stiff upper lip Now said Ill dotin to breakfast and see If takfH me for the Emperor
