KING BUILT HI3 OWN CASTLE.

In the planning of his castle Rich
ard was hi own engineer, and all the
experts, headed by M. Vlollet-le-Duc,
are agreed that he was very great en
gineer. Hla main work, overtopping
the precipitous end of the promontory,
was In threeparts a donjon, an In
closing citadel rising from deep and
wide dry fosse an outer court (about
400x225 feet) inclosed by towering ram
parts rising from second deep and
wide dry fosse, that cut off the end
of the promontory and made It In a
way an Island. Beyond the second
rosse, extending up the slope, waa an
outwork a great triangle (about 200
foot from base to apex) of towering
ramparts protected by third foss
which again severed the promontory.
Between the main work and the out
work the communication, aeemlngly
waa by a wooden bridge that could be
destroyed quickly If the outwork wer
carried. There waa no trace of a
permanent way. Below the cliff on
which the fortress stands are remain
of outwork covering passage to th
river reached from above by t stair

berries' richness In certain salts tend
to render the blood alkaline and to
