It is well that Agra Is deep in the
heart of India, and that the traveler
from either East or West, bent on
really seeing something of the land,
must perforce tarry at many places
ere he reaches the old Mogul capital.
The country's wonders are thus seen
in their proper order—the lesser ones
first. The architectural glories of the
city are many, but it is the Taj Mahal
that makes of Agra an Indian Mecca.
One enters among the charming for-
malities of its old Persian garden in
pensive mood, for it seems of another
world than ours—the garden of a land
of dreams. Here all sounds are si-
lenced; the air is heavy with the fra-
grance of the shrubs, the flower-beds
and the cypress trees. Even the gen-
tle plash of the fountains does not of-
ten disturb the soft peace encompass-
ing this shrine—sanctuary of the fair-
est romance of Hindustan. Perfect in
its proportions, almost unearthly in its
beauty, it is no monument raised for
arrogant self-aggrandizement, but is
the mirror of a king's heart.
It is the reflection of a husband's de-
votion to a dead wife's memory; it is
the enduring record, enriching both
art and romance, of the love story of
one who held the best the world had
to offer as scarcely good enough to
consecrate the lifeless clay of her who
bore him seven children, and had been
his wife for fourteen happy years.
The Taj enclosure is therefore hal-
lowed ground, and the story of the
shrine runs as follows: The Mogul
emperor, Shah Jehan, stricken with
grief at the death of his beautiful Per-
sian queen, Mumtaz-Mahal, the Cho-
sen of the Palace, vowed he would
erect over her body a mausoleum
which should be pure and beautiful as
his dead queen's heart; the fairest
building that ever adorned the earth,
just as she had been the fairest wom-
an that ever trod it. This exquisite
creation in marble is witness to the
sacredness of his word.
It was Bishop Heber who said "the
Moguls designed like Titans and fin-
ished like jewellers." They were the
greatest of all Mahomedan builders,
and in this respect at least Shah Jehan
was the greatest of the Moguls. The
Emperor Akbar was a Titan indeed.
Had he built nothing but the town of
Fatehpur-Sikri, that long-deserted pile
of temples, palaces and towers, his
name would live for ever; but many
other are the marvels that bear trib-
ute to his fearlessness and vigor.
When this Mogul jeweller conceived
the idea of the Taj Mahal, the whole
world was searched for materials and
the finest talent of Europe was enlist-
ed to beautify the work. In 1630, the
year following the death of his queen,
the foundation stones were laid.
Many thousands of laborers and arti-
sans were employed, and seventeen
years later this love story in marble
and precious stones received the final
touches from the artists who had
created it. We met at Delhi a Floren-
tine artist who, with a staff of lapi-
daries, was engaged in the restoration
of the mosaics of the Diwan-i-Khas in
the palace. He it was who told us of
the stones to be found inlet in the
Jeypore marble of the Taj Mahal.

able hue from many lands of Europe,

Shah Jehan was deposed by his son,
Aurungzeb—that mischievous vandal
who wantonly destroyed so many of
India's architectural beauties, and
left but one indifferent building, the
mosque at Benares, to bear his name
to succeeding generations—in the year
lti38, and imprisoned in Agra Fort un-
til his death eight years later. It is
said that it was Shah Jehan's inten-
tion to have erected a companion mon-
ument of black marble, but of less,
magnificence, on the opposite shore of
the Jumna river to receive his own re-
mains. If this be true, by the usurpa-
tion of the throne a great work of art
was lost to India; thus, also, was Aur-
ungzeb's evil influence felt, not only
In the destruction of works his father
had actually accomplished, but of
those he might have accomplished. As
we drew nearer to the shrine, the
riches that lay embedded in its walls,
arches and spandrels revealed them-
selves to view. They emblazoned Its
facade with floral designs and scrolls
and with precepts from the Koran,
and each opening admitting light and
air was of delicate fretted marble. We
went through a gateway pierced in a
traceried marble screen, thence
through another beyond into the in-
most recesses of the Taj—the Cham-
ber of the Tombs. It was long before
the eyes, blinded by the reflected
glare of the setting sun, became ac-
customed to the gloom; but as vision
slowly penetrated it, there emerged
from the shades an octagonal fillgreed
screen of exquisite workmanship, a
filmy floral web of marble, which, as
the darkness melted, became opales-
cent with Inlaid stones of the richest
and liveliest of colors. Silently we
passed through the clasp of this em-
broidered girdle—most precious of
such forms of ornament In India—and
stood before the cenotaphs, embedded
with inlays in floral wreaths and clus-
ters, of Queen Mumtaz and the faith-
ful consort for whom she had waited
here so long. These, however, were
but the show tombs, for there are
somewhat similar, but plainer, cask-
ets In a vault below, level with the
ground, where these royal lovers, unit-
ed in death, rest side by side in the
deep sleep of All Eternity. And now
the chamber wa3 flooded with a soft
and mellow light, in which every de-
tail of its embellishment was distinct-
ly to be seen.
What skill and art! that could tem-
per the fierce glare of the Indian sun,
by filtering it through double screens
of delicately pierced marble, placed
far apart, to this dim, religious twi-
light. There are four such openings,
one on each side of the building, fac-
ing the cardinal points; and there are
four smaller ones above them. This
central chamber, 80 ft. or so In height,
is thus illumined with an indescribable
softness and beauty. Its repose and
tranquility are overwhelming. One
scarcely dares to move; to speak
would seem a sacrilege. Every move-
ment made, every soflnd breathed,
awakes the quavering echoes—the
echoes of the Taj Mahal, most won-
derful In all the world. Even a one
whispers the slightest sound one's Hps
can frame, that whisper is repeated
a myriad times, ascending higher and
higher from wall to wall until It trem-
bles away through the trelllsed open-
ings of the marble grilles above. And
when the watchman, who had been
standing motionless as a statue In the
shadows, chanted a few notes in a rich
tenor, what countless other voices
sprang to life. It was as if the very-
walls were singing For long the

To Use Waste Cotton.

Mr. Bryan is now going over his
district, talking up a novel proposi-
tion which he says he will support, if
be gets a chance, and that: is a cot-
ton mill under control of the State
Penitentiary Board, to utilize the labor
of female convicts in making cotton
bagging from cotton waste.
Mr. Bryan declares that the jute
bagging is manufactured by a foreign
trust, which extorts millions of dol-
lars from the South each year, and b j
believes that a cotton mill adjunct to
the penitentiary could utilize the
cheaper grades of cotton and make
a satisfactory bagging that would be
more protection to the cotton bale
than the Jute bagging, less unsightly,
and at a saving of several millions of
dollars to the farmers of Texas every
Jute bagging costs nearly a dollar
a bale, and if 35 cents could be saved
to the farmer it would amount to a
million dollars a year. Then there
would be nearly two millions more
kept within the State for the raw ma-
terials, skilled labor, provisions fort he
convicts working in the mill. Such
a mill could be built by the State
upon the principle on which the State
bought and operated the Cunningham
sugar plantation—the profitable em-
ployment of convict labor in such a
way as not to compete with the citi-
zen labor. Mr. Bryan believes the idea
a good one, practical, and would like
to see it put in operation by the next
Legislature. — Dallas (Texas) Demo-

How to Tie Wool.
Do not tie your wool with sisal or
binder twine. Woolen manufacturers
are up in arms against this practice,
and are more and more refusing to ac-
cept from wool dealers wool that is
tied with sisal or binder twine, and
the time has come when the buyer of
wool must discriminate against this
kind of twine, for the reason that in
untying the fleeces It Is impossible to
remove sisal or binder twine without
leaving some of the fibre in the woo),
and this causes a defect in the goods
when made, to the annoyance and ex-
pense of the woolen manufacturer,
who has has to put such pieces of
cloth among his defective goods.
In Ohio the tying up of tags in a
fleece of wool is a criminal offense,
and if discovered Is punishable by im-
prisonment or fine, or both, at the dis-
cretion of the judge trying the offense.
It is In the power of the wool grow-
ers to improve the value of their wool
by proper tying and tagging, using the
hard-twisted twine instead of the loose
bound, wiry sisal. It is barely possi-
ble that the wool dealers and manu-
facturers will refuse to accept wool
tied with sisal except at a discount
from a merchantable price.—Southern

Buying Small Farms.
There has been a very noticeable
increase in the demand for small
farms the past winter, mainly from
city men who have been thrown out
of employment. In some sections
they have bought up practically all
the small farms in the market, paying
good prices for them, and generally
making the entire payment in cash.
Most of the purchasers are American-
born mechanics and tradesmen who
have had a farm bringing-up. They
have saved a little money and now,
when their source of livelihood has
stopped, they naturally turn back to
the land where they know a com-
fortable living rewards honest, intel-
ligent effort. This class of of citi
zens is a large gain to any comnni-

A negro farmer in Kansas knows
how to raise potatoes. His name is
J. G. Groves, and, It is said, he raises
more potatoes every year than any
other individual grower in the world.
Last year on hi* farm he produced
72,150 bushels of white potatoes, be-
sides several hundred bushels of the
sweet variety. The former crop aver-
aged 245 bushels to the acre, and Is
about his average yield. He began
farming less than thirty years ago
without a cent, as a day laborer at 40
cents per day, and now owns 500 acres
of land valued at $150 per acre. His
potatoe crops have made him wealthy.
