DEAR Sir. I hare delayed answerinar vour letter in
order to send you the enclosed certificate. Mr. Bart
Keere declines to give a testimonial at present for the
reason that he has been under the treatment of a num
ber of Physicians and thin us that they might not like it
if be were to make the affirmation of the effect your
Mineral Water had upon him. I will describe the case
to you as near as I can : He had been sick about two
years and an unnatural belt had formed around him
just below the ribs. He drank your Mineral Water
three or four dars and the belt went off in such a wav
as to cause bis legs and feet to swell, but that soon dis
appeared, ana he is now in comtortalile health. The
doctors had all given up that he could not get well.
There are a number of persons here who hare spoken to
me for some of the water to use In various cases, and I
would like to use a little myself. I think it is the best
nerrous remedy I ever knew. Please send me five
gallons of the water. Respectfully,

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

tragedies as tms, stain tne annais oi tne
Tower; its bloody records were carried

there: but none tnat can toucn tne

HONORS TO HEBREWS.
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,
An Old-Time Concluding Demonstration
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.
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. N. O. Times-Democrat.
