: TOWER OF BABEL.
Traditions 88 10 tne Heioht of 1,10 Fn"
The. actual height at which the last
stone of that famous structure, the
tower of Babel, rested cannot, on nc
ciiHit of the. rnmotoness of the times
at which it is said to have existed,
ever become more than a matter of
merest coujecture. Herodotus, who
lived nbou't 1,700 years after that
"great spiral way to heaven" Is said
to have been attempted, says that ho
saw at Babylon a structure consisting
.of eight towers raised one above an
other, each seventy-live feet In height,
but whether this ruin "was the re
mains of the tower of Babel it was
even then Impossible to ascertain. Ile
rndotus, usually minutely exact lo his
writing, leaves us In Ignorance as to
bow the upper level of each of these
Keventy-ttve foot towers wan reached
'from the level bolow.
" As might 'V expected, oven tin tra
dition, n wide difference of opinion ex
ists as to the height of the tower. Most
orientalists maintain that God did not
put a stop'tcMliP' work until the tower
bnd reached a height of 10.000 fath
oms, or about twelve miles. In Cey
louese tradition It Is said to hiive been
iih high as 20.000 elephants, each
standing one above the other. St.
Jerome asserts on the authority of
persons who had examined the ruins
that It did not reach a height exceed
ing four miles. Other statements are
still more extravagant London Sat

were irregular in passage and un
