Fortress Monroe, April 25.—I write this
letter sitting upon the green romparta of
Fortress Monroe. At my right is the big
Hygeia hotel, and in front of me, across the
water, lies a rooky structure known as "The
Ripraps," or Fort Wool. At my back, several
miles away, can be seen the elevators of
Nowport News, and within e few rods of me
the waves of the sea roll in with the tide upon
the sandy shore. I can look down into
Fortress Monroe behind me, ond the sight re-
minds one almost of the walled cities of
feudal times. This is the largest fort in the
United States. It covers eighty acres, and it
cost up to the time of the late war all told
about $2,500,000. It is hexagonal in shape.
Its interior is well laid out, and the officers'
quarters look upon green lawns, in which old,
knavled live oaks shade tho cozy seats. The
walls aro thirty-five feet bigh, many feet
thick, and a moat as wide as a Washington
city street runs entirely around the fori This
moat is separated from the surrounding
country by another wall, aud on tho tops of
this wall and through holes in their sides
great cannon look out in every direction.
The tops of tho ramparts are green, and they
aro filled now with the gay throng of promen-
aders who are here for pleasure, love making
and the sea air. There are numerous coiy
nooks in theso ramparts in which tho cooing
lovers may hido themselves, aud in walking
about one surprises many a pretty romance
behind theso big cannon.

AT FORTRESS MONROE.
ONE OF THE BIO GUNS.
It was in r'ortress Monroe that Jeilerson
Davis, the president of the Confederacy, was
confined after his capture. The casemate in
which bo was kept up to the time that ho was
bailed is shown to visitors. It is now occu-
pied as officers' quarters, and it is hardly tho
gloomy dungeon that it has been painted.
Jefferson Davis was not at all well when he
camo here. Ho was suffering from dyspepsia
and was worn and haggard. A large guard
was put over him and there were thirty
armed sentries outside of his cell. At first he
was allowed no reading matter but the Bible
and tho Prayer Book. But this was soon
changed, and bo had bis daily papers every
morning. He read a great deal while he was
In prison, and his physician says that he re-
read Bancroft's history of the United States
and read Macaulay's history of England dur-
ing this time. Clement O. Clay was also con-
lined here, and Mrs. Clay visited him in his
cell. I met Mrs. Clay at Washington during
the past winter. Bhe is a magnificent looking
lady, full of lifo and overflowing with good
stories. Bho is one of the finest conversation-
alists I have ever known, and sho tells the
slory of her husband's capture and of the
trip to Fortress Monroe in company with Mr.
Davis, her husband, Alexander H. Stephons
aud Judgo Beagan in such vivid language
that its scenes pass before your eyes as she
describes them. She has the materials for a
book in her experiences, and she could elec-
trify an audience were she to take the lecture
stage.
The Itiprape is an old fort made of rocks,
lying about two miles from Fortress Monroe.
It is midway between Old Point Comfort and
the opposite shore, and it was built to guard
Hampton Roads. It is called tho Ripraps
from the peculiar sound which tho water
makes iu striking against the rocks. It has
never been used to any extent as a fortifica-
tion, and it has no garrison to speak of. It
was bore that Andrew Jackson used to spend
many of his summer vacations while ho wai
president. He would come down from Wash-
ington with Amos Kimball and stay a week
at a time in this solitary place far away from
the office seekers.
Fortress Monroe is now commanded by
Gen Tidball, and I think that Moj. Calef,
who fired the first gun at Gettysburg, is also
here. The military forms quite an important
part of the seaside life of this watering place.
Tho 700 and more guests of tho hotel go
regularly to seo the dress parade, which oc-
curs every evening at 0 o'clock, and brass
buttons and shoulder straps are present
everywhere. At night the officers attend tho
dances, and I doubt not that many a rich
girl makes a poor match by the contact.
flat, and a drive through it reminds the
northerner of a foreign country. There ore
no fences. The war used up the rails for fire-
wood, and even the trees have been cut away.
The country houiee are, as a rule, small, and
thoee on the farms in the neighborhood at
Hampton and Fortreee Monroe are cabins of
one and two stories, The people are evi-
dently very poor and I am told much of the
land Is owned by negroes. Thay have truck
patches of from one to four acres, and upon
those they have built little frame houses.
Hampton is quite a good sized town. It
has a number of very pretty residencu, and
between it and Fortress Monroe, a distance of
about three miles, there aro a number of fine
houses. The Hygeia hotel, at Fortreas Mon-
roe, was built by a man named Phoebus, who
died a year or so ago, and who made a fort-
une out of hotel keeping. The hotel was sold
at auction this spring, and Mrs. Phcebtit
bought it, paying $350,000 for it. It is prob-
ably worth a good deal more money, and I am
told that its net income is in the neighbor
hood of 1100,000 a year. Mrs. Phoebus has
built a fine brick residence on the road to
Hampton, overlooking the bay. She is said
to be a very enterprising business woman,
and the hotel appears to be doing well.
The Hygeia is the only hotel at Fortress
Monroe, and Phoebu3 has in some way kept
other hotels from building here. His hotel is
on government laud, and as to whether he
paid rental or not I do not know. John
Chamberlain, who has a restaurant and club
house at Washington, intends, however, to
build another hotel at Old Point Comfort
This hotel will be some distanoe abovo the
Hygeia. It will probably be largely patron-
ized, and it may cut deeply into the receipts
of its only opponent. Chamberlain was, I
understand, at the auction when the Hygeia
hotel was sold not long ago. He did not bid
upon it, however, and was evidently content
to let it remain in its present hands.

NOTES FROM ANNAPOLIS.
a watir battkhy,
Just below Fortress Monroe Is tho Soldiers'
Home, which has now 1,800 inmates. Tho
majority of these are of foreign birth. The
home has magnificent grounds, and its build-
ings look like those of a great summer hotel.
The hospital, which has just been completed,
hns broad piazzas looking out upon the sea.
It is well lighted, and is as delightful us could
bo desired. Along the grounds of the home
arc lawns filled with flowers. Tbey slope to-
ward the water, and along the edge of the
hnrbor there is a wide promenado, where you
may see one ai mod and one legged soldiers
Bitting and fishing. Each soldier, if able,
does his own washing, and in a row across the
bay which I took from Fortress Monroe to
Hampton yesterday I saw numerous collec-
tions of shirts and drawers lying on the banks
spread out to dry. I saw also some of the
soldiers working, ond » am told that they re-
ceive pay for the work they do. 1 visited the
dining room where the soldiers eat. It is an
immense ball, and will ^commodate $,000
men at one time, Ail of tlia cooking fosr the
home is done in the kitchen adjoining, and it
takes more than 1,000 pounds of beef *n<l
1,000 loaves of bread for a single meal. The
home has a reading room, r conservatory ano.
a theatre. It has a farm of 150 acres about
three miles away, and here much of the food
which the soldiers eat is raised.
It will be remembered Lhat it was hero at
Hampiou that Ben Butler first declared the
negroes contraband of wai. He founded a
negro scU'iol here, and this school is still
maintained. It is used as a day school for
colored children, and is known as the Butler
■chool. It accommodate* several hundred
and it is a low frame structure built in the
form of a cross and painted white. It it un-
der the general charge of the administration

Annapolis, Md., April 36.—Do you want
to seo one of the most interesting old cities in
the world! If you do, come with me and we
will take a quiet stroll through picturesque
streets that are burdered with silence. Every-
body refers to Anjapolis as "the ancient
city." Its past is a blaze of glory; its present
is a subdued existence of easy going content-
ment. True, it is the capital of Maryland;
true, it is the location of tho great naval
academy; truo, its society is as delightful as
it is aristocratic; and yet
But como with mo. That liuildisg on tho
hill thcro, which looks like oil old time fort,
with a cupola attached, is tho state house.
Wo will enter. Yos, here is where Washing-
ton resigned his commission. There is the
big oil painting illustrating tho great event.
It was an occasion of great sorrow) Of
course it wns in a certain way, but theso old
Annapolitans were too glold that the war was
over to weep much, and Washington was not
the kind of a man to refuso a good time
when ho had the opportunity to enjoy it.
Look at those old records—you will notice that
tho state library is crowded with them—and
see how Washington and bis revolutionary
friends observed tho ovent. Read this: "At
Washington's reception, the day before he re
signed his commission, Mr. Mann furnished
tho supper at thestuto bouse. Ninety-eight
bottles of wine, two aud a half gallons of
spirits, nine pounds of sugar, a lot of limes,
music and waiters. A dozen packs of cards
were supplied, and the governor directed Col.
Mills, of the Annapolis Coffee bouse, to fur-
nish tho people with punch and grog to the
value of £10 10s. 5d." And if you will look a
little further you will seo that Washington,
with the bello of Annapolis, opened tho ball,
and went through tho evolutions as neatly as
ho thrashed tho British redcoats. Look fur-
ther if you want to. Then you will observo
how these gay and giddy old fellows cele-
brated tho peace between America and Eng-
land. Read a few of the items: 110 gallons
of rum, 49 gallons of claret, 33 gallons of Ma-
deira, 35 gallons of port, 0 gallons of spirits,
several hundred broken glasses and dishes.
Ohl what a day it must ha vo been I
You can ramble among theso old papers
with interest and profit for a week if you
want to. You can find out that in those old
times Annapolis was tho Paris of America.
Its society was full of life. Its horse races
wore great events. Its theatres were filled
with the best attractions. Hero is one little
fact that illustrates tho lifo of the city; one
of the ladies employed a French hair dresser
at a salary of 1,000 crowns a year. Oh, yes,
our forefathers aud our foremothers wero
simple pooplo, but they had their fun.
But como with me up thoso crooked steps.
Rather tough climbing, oh? Now you are all
right. We are in tho state house cupola.
That is tho groat Chesapeake off there.
Looks fail' enough to deserve the name of tho
Mediterranean of America, doesn't it? You
will observo that the plan of tho city resem-
bles that of Washington—all tho streets
radiate from two points. That vonerablo
looking building over there is St. John's, one
of tho oldest colleges in the country. Doesn't
look very prosperous? No, it isn't, but It has
r.n its list of graduates the names of some of
<he country's biggest men. It is liko
fcrniapolis—ite past is more glorious than Its
present. Did you ever see so many old man-
dons) You will observe them on almost
ovory street. Their history runs far back into
the last century. They are splendid specimens
of architecture—strong, roomy, haudsome
and aucient. No wonder they stand the
wear of ages so well. The Chaso mansion,
then on King Georgo street-nearly all tho
jtreets have royal names-built in 1770, has
ono of the most stately and beautiful halls of
any residence of this country, and its decora-
tions are on a scalo that ono would not ex-
pect in those colonial times. That house fac-
ing the creek was tho residence of Charles
Carroll of Carrollton. He had a priest in his
family and gave up Qne of his rooms for a
Catholic chapel. Now the Catholics own tho
whole building, and it is occupied by the Ro-
demptionist Fathers.
Over yonder is the Naval acadomy, but wo
cannot visit it today. As wo aro getting out
of the state house we will stop In the execu-
tive chamber to pay our respects to the
youngest governor in the United States.
Honry Lloyd is his name, aud he came into
his present position from tho presidency of the
itate senate when Mr. McLane, then gov-
ernor, was sont by President Cleveland to
represent this country at Paris. Two of Gov-
ernor Lloyd's ancestors have occupied the
tame chair, and he looks as if be felt at home
there. He has followed President Cleveland's
example since lie has been in office—that is,
he has married a charming and beautiful
wife, and they occupy the large executive
mansion near the state house.

In renting houses in San Francisco the
rent chargod is according to the rooms.
Brokers say that a room should rent at (5 and

bo 125 or |30, besides the value of bath room
and clonet. Architects figure lit the same

as recently described in the reports froni

Handling Cadavers in a Barrsl—Preser-
vation <A a Corpse by Meant of Em-
balming Fluid—Scenes la the Detecting
ltoom.
When Janitor Hicks and Assistant Mike
had rolled all the barrels into the inject-
ing room they took down half a doien of
tho shelves and placed them on the floor.
After removing a cadaver from a barrel
they laid it out on the shelf, and then
raised the shelf to a table, where they left
it and turned to the next subject. Before
all the barrels were emptied they found
that there was not room on the tables for
all of them, and Hicks accordingly pro-
ceeded to embalm thoso already laid out.
He performed this task precisely as he had
hundreds of times before. He took down
a gigantic piston syringe and filled it with
a solution of plaster of paris. This done,
he laid tho syringe aside for a moment
while he made an Incision with a surgeon's
knife into the carotid artery of the cadaver.
To get still further from technical terms
he cut a gash in tho artery that runs up
the neck where one may feel a strong
pulse beat. There are two of these arte-
ries, and Hicks, following his ancient in-
structions, cut the left carotid. Some blood
flowed, but not much. Next he inserted
tho end of the syringo iu the gash and
into the severed artery. Then followed a
hard pui.h on the piston, which sent the
embalming fluid all through the body, it
was evident very quickly, for the solution
is pink, and in a moment the arteries in
all parts of the body could be traced by a
pink line.
It is wonderful bow thorough this work
is; generally one injection of the solution
serves the purpose, and at the most two
are sufficient. Sufficient for what? To
keep the body in a state of preservation
for the month or more that elapses before
the students got through with it. The
embalming properly done, Hicks and Mike
lifted the shelf with tho cadaver on II to a
place against the wall. There It was left
entirely nude and unmarked except by its
own blood from the accidental and intend-
ed lacerations it had undergone. Appar-
ently It did not occur to Hicks or Mlko to
wonder what namo it had borne In life.
They are no respcctors of identity. But
they represent their employers and do
their work In a methodical, businesslike
way, and tho room they work in knows
nothing of sex; it is not recognized in in-
animate flesh. The cadaver which stopped
breathing no more perhaps than thirty
hours ago, and which was called a woman
until the heart ceaBed to beat, comes to
tho injecting room simply as a structure
of flesh, bones, nerves, tissues, limbs and
organs; it is pulled by main, strength
from its barrel, gashed at the carotid ar-
tery, injected with a solution of plaster of
paris, laid on its shelf to wait its ttj,
uncovered and unconsidered, unless stji
idle thought is bestowed upon It, as if tJje
embalmer were to wonder what Itudj
would be lucky enough to get theAgact#
in tim MSSECTINQ ROOM.
When Hicks and Miko had emjp$ied all
the barrels and embalmod all the-oadavers
they set about the next step in the pro-
gress of the subject for dissection. This
was to transport the cadavers to the dis-
secting room up stairs. To do this they
required the assistance of a student who
was at work in the buildiug. A rope was
cast about tho upper part of a dead body
and tied under the arms. One man took
hold of the end of the rope and the other
of the legs and trunk, and in this way,
with a good deal of jolting against the
walls and stumbling on the stairs, they
got their burden Into the dissecting room.
It takes about three weeks for a body to
go through the dissecting room. As the
tables are kept pretty well supplied,
It generally happens that a cadaver has to
wait a few days in the injecting rooift for
a vacancy. When this occufj the pres-
sor of anatomy posts a notice iiji the col-
lege to this effect: "Material for dissec-
tion will be furnished to the following
gen tlemcn on day."
Then follows a list of students whose
turn is to avail themselves of the invalua-
ble privileges offered by the institution in
its dissecting room. From the list of stu-
dents anybody can tell how many fresh
cadavers have been brought In, for the
number of men on the list will always be
a multiple of flve, and dividing this num-
ber by flve will give the number of cadav-
ers. When the students report for mate-
rial each one pays the clerk of the college
$1. This is not obligatory, and a man is
not compelled either to accept dissecting
material when his name is posted or pay
his fee. Most of the students, however,
are eager to avail themselves of the op-
portunities. The fee of $1 entitles the
student to one part of tho cadaver, which
Is divided into live parts—the head, the
right arm, the left arm, the right leg and
the left leg. Discrimination as to the dis-
tribution of tho respective parts it made
according to priority of application.
REMOVING! debbis.
Five students then work together on a
cadaver. They may do all fhe work at
the appointed table in the dlisectlng room,
or, as many do, they may take their part
home and cut It up there. Cases have oc-
curred, though in violation of a rule,
where a student, desiring to take advan-
tage of a brief vacation and yet unwilling
to lose time altogether in his study, has
packed an arm or a head Into a traveling
bag and carried it with him into another
state, and cut it up there In the intervals
of family felicitations and reunions. If
tlicy do their dissecting outside of the col-
lege building they make such disposition
of the refuse as seems to them fit; most
of them burn It. The refuse Is, of course,
the tegument, muscles, arteries, etc.,
which are removed from the part under
study. In case the work is done at the
college all this Is provided for; each stu-
dent has a pan, or slop jar, into which he
throws the tegument as soon at it has
been removed, and the various muscles,
membranes and the rest follow It from
day to day as the task of stripping the
bones progresses.
Now and then Mike makes the rounds
from tabl to teable with a larger slop jar
collecting the refuse. In this way he gets
a jar full of pieces of the thirty different
cadavers and empties them into a barrel.
When the barrel has stood several days,
growing constantly fuller of human
refuse, it gives forth a strong odor of de-
cay, but the students do not mind It par-
ticularly, and Mike usually waits a good
convenient time for taking care of it.
What docs he do with It? It is an Inter-
esting question. The law provides that
after the reputable medical institutions are
through with the liodies of the unknown
dead, the remains shall be buried in pot-
ter's field. If the law said all the re-
mains, Mike would have a hard time try-
ing to find thifm, for, not to mention the
refuse burned by students who take their
work home, there are tho bones which
many of them keep after they have strip-
ped off all. the flesh. And if the law re-
quired that the bodies be burled individu-
ally, each in Its own coflln, It is probable
that Mike, and Janitor Hick*, too, would
resign In despair. Whatever burial 1*
granted to the remains is without discrim-
ination, promiscuous and importtaL—

Queer Venders In Turkey.
The different articles of food differ as
much as the venders who carry them.
The most substantial are the "kebobs."
or small pieces of mutton, broiled on the
end of an iron rod over the mangal of live
charcoal that they carry from place to
place. Then with this Is the "peloff," or
rice cooked in grease. The1 'yaoute'' man
finds ready sale for his prepared clabber,
while the "seamit," or seeded bread man,
is at every one's l»ck and call. Sweet-
meats of all kinds are ever at hand and
eveh the ice cream man appears on the
aeene.
None of them stop and implore your
patronage, but all go forth calling at the
top of their voices. Then here comes the
organ grinders, one with the instrument
on his back, while his comrade marches
behind to turn ont the tunes, and some of
thetn are quite musical. It is around one
of these instruments that tho dancers con-
gregate. It is mostly the commonest
workmen, with their great heavy shoee,
that take part. They form in line, rest-
ing hands on each others' shoulders.
Then the leader has a series of steps that
he performs. The others follow his a-
ample, with less and less vigor toward
the end, until the last ono just simply
walks around. They move In a oirclo, and
when the leader has finished his list he
suddenly ends with a whoop and a jump
and then rests on tho grass while his
second takes his place, and thus it goes
on, so weird and lifeless and yet to a new
observer so Interesting.—Constantinople

III);h B oa a Test of Merit.
About seventy years ago the chorus of
the Bergamo opera in Italy possessed:
among its nnmbers a poor anil modest
young man, who was beloved by all hi#'
comrades and who was a tailor's appren'
tlce and chorus singer atone and the same
time, in order that ho might the better
support his mother. One day the singer
Na?arl came to the tallor'b shop to try on
some garments then being made for him.
The apprentice's face seemed familiar to
