IN SPLENDID BEAUTY
RISE TUB PALACES AND TOWERS
Sir Edwin Arnold's Eloquent Deecrlp-
tlen of tho Impression Made by the
First tight of the Wondsrful Capi-
tal of Ancient Rusela.
Nobody can ever forget the impres-
sion made by the first sight of that
unique, grotesque, savagely beautiful
and splendidly barbarous heart, the
greatness and glory of Moscow. As
you suddenly turn the corn Into the
"Red Square" you find yourself, not
in any European city, but rather In
Samarcand, Bokhara, Merv, Or that
fantastic capital which Kubla Khan
upreared In Xanadu.
i Tou enter through the Gate of the
Redeemer, a red tower with grass-
green spire and pinnacle, and on its
face hangs the sacred picture called
"The Savior of Smolensk," before
which every passer-by salutes, for the
Tartars broke their scaling ladders
trying to tear^it down, and the French
burst their cannon in trying to batter
it to pieces.
Within the walls beyond stands the
tall tower of Ivan the Great, with the
bold Slavonic Inscription round the
base of its cupola, telling how it was
built In its upper gallery hangs a
bell of 65 tons, that is a mere infant
compared with "Tsar Kolokol," the
King of all Bells, which stands
cracked and gaping at its foot. Be-
hind it is the Cathedral of the As-
sumption, in which the czar was
crowned, and near at hand are the
Cathedrals of the Archangel Michael
and of the Annunciation, the shrlne9
where nearly all the czars of old have
been christened 6r crowned or buried.
Beyond the majesty of their marble
and gold, the gorgeous emblazonry of
their mosaics, you reach the vast rose-
tinted modern palace of the Kremlin
itself, containing the famous ihalls
of St. George and of St Vladimir
among its 700 sumptuous galleries
and chambers, and its staircase that
only imperial feet have ever trod.
Throughout' the Oriental features
of domes and cupolas are curiously
blended with Byzantine frescoes and
mosaics, with an effect of entrancing
and bewildering color. A very forest
of marvelous form and hue fills the
open air. The golden domes gleam
like so many suns. The cupolas flash
with sea-green or sapphire, with
saffron, purple and vermllllon.
The beauteous roofs of palace,
church and gateway make stars of
splendid glory against the sky, and
pinnacles, hung with golden chains
and topped with glittering crosses,
crescents, shining saints, gleaming
golden eagles, load the scene with
barbaric splendor, and almost weary
the eye with superstitious magnifi-
cence, for this, as Mme. de Stael has
said, this is "the Tartar Rome."
Russians very rightly regard the
Kremlin as their Holy of Holies, and
what Moscow is to Russia that to Mos-
cow is the Kremlin, not of an age so
great as many shrines of history, con-
taining nothing, perhaps, of the very
highest antiquity, but richer in asso-
ciations, and in the diversity of its
relics than any other place of equal
size, for it is here, as their poet Med-
ick wrote, that "the great Russian
eagle raised its aerie and spread its
immense protecting wings over an
enormous empire."—From Works of
Sir Edward Arnold.
Making Congressmsn Useful.
Representative John Wesley Gaines
of Tennessee was tearing out some
of his abundant hair a few days ago.
"Look at that!" he cried, pointing to
a latter he had received from a con-
stituent "I have read comic stories
in the daily papers about -requests to
congressmen for seeds and things, but
I think that's the limit"
The letter read:
"Dear Mr. Gaines: Please sand ma
some fish and some frogs!**
It was Mrs. Hetty Groan's seven-
tieth birthday anniversary.
"Madam," said an Interviewer* "will
you tell me how you account for your

edge as possible, and by working on

She smiled grimly.
"I have been different from a New
Bedford girl, a friend of my child-
"This girl, though ahe married a
poor man, gave no more thought to
money than a child.

ter, turned pale, and aald reproach-

Their First Sheriff in 27 Yesrs
The swearing in, a short time ago,
of Edmond E. Perkins as sheriff of
Green county, Ky., has brought to
light the fact that Perkins is the first
sheriff the county has had in twenty-
seven years, This was du6 to de-
termined opposition of taxpayers to
pay even the interest on bonds issued
by the county to aid in building a
railroad. Tne debt was originally
one-quarter million dollars, swelled to
three times this amount by interest
Recent rulings by the courts relieves
the county of the debt. Hence the
election and swearing in of a sheriff.
The last sheriff of Green county was
W. L. Mudd, who was elected in 1878,
but relieved of his duties as sheriff
in July of the following year at a spe-
cial meeting of the county court.

~ Admiral's Werds Carry Weight
Rear-Admiral Hichborn is one of the
best-known officers of our navy. His
statements concerning Peruna will
have much weight as they go out in
the world. What he says is echoed by
many other officers of high standing.
What the Admiral Says.
Philip Hichborn, Rear-Admiral of
the U. S. Navy, Washington, D. C.,
"After the use of Peruna for m short
period, I can now cheerfully recom-
mend your valuable remedy to any
one who Is In need of an Invigorating
An Elf Prsssst Fee.
The soldier and the sailor ire
pecially subject to catarrh. In
barracks and on the field, Peruna is
found equally efficacious to overcome
this physical enemy. If taken in time
it will prevent colds from developing
into catarrh. Even after a cold has
settled In some organ of the body,
Peruna can be relied upon as an effi-
cacious remedy to promptly overcome
Peruna will relieve catarrh, whether
acute or chronic, but a few doses of
it taken in the first stages of the dis-
ease will be more effective than whan
the disease has become established.
