suspension bridge, spanning the Moldau,
and, the old stone bridge, with its many
• statues, and two great towers at' acliend.
The ,villa consists of two large, long
rooms, thelower one having once been
filled with statues, th,6 upper with its walls
still bright with frescoes, illustrating the
history of Bavaria; it is ungarnished and
dilapidated now. Our guide—an old
Hungarian soldier, with bottle nose and
skin so weather-beaten that it looked like
anything but'flesh and blood, was quite
esthetic over the condition of things,
mournfully shaking his head and shrug.

Wallenstein's Palace, a dull, grey, ugly
pile. Hearing some one call as we cross.
ed the court, I was alarmed to see a huge
fellow.in black cocked hat, trimmed with
silver, long coat touching the ground,
lined with black fur, and turnig over at
the collar, and cuffs so deep andiong and
black; that lie looked like a grisley bear
'on his hind • legs. This alarming vition
beckoned us to come to him, and we with
difficultylearned that we were to wait
rthcre till some one came. The "some
, one'? appeared in the shape of a nice
young woman, who led us along a chilly
dark hall and ushered us into Wallen
stein's bath-ropm, surely the dismalist
place I ever saw, designed to represent a
cave, with stalactites pendant from roof
and sides, they looked like dirty sponges,
andlshuddered as she spoke of a "douche"
passing,through it, a door opened• into a
,:jilining.room, a kind of lo ft y
porch., entirely open on one side, looking
intOthe garden; the walls and roof cov
ered with faded fresoods. It was shock
ingly dirty, but-one could fancy a bright
picture of knights and ladies feasting
there. Just beyond was a small room
with Wallenstein's horse, which hid rode
at the battle of Luetzen; • the poor animal
was rather the worse for moths, having
Very little hair on his body, and a very
new head added lately, far too fine for
his time-worn • body. Here were two
miserable 'portraits of Wallenstein and
his wife. The place is still in the posses-
sion of his descendants.
Again across the old bridge; with.its
queer statues. One represents the release
of souls from Pargatory, three wretches
ire tied together and making a lusty out
cry, judging from their faces; a wolf
guards the door on one side-and d scowl-
ing Turk on the other; from above a
Saint is helping a sinner through a hole
Li the roof; high 'above sits the Deity to
whom another Saint is presenting broken
handcuffs and chains! 'About the middle
of the bridge is a great gilt crucifix, with
two draped statues on either side, in grey
stone; an inscription tells that this was
erected by a fine imposed upon a blasphe-
mous Jew for reviling the Cross in the
year 1006. Every man as he passes rais
es his hat, and the women* cross them
selves, though as they do not look up or
cease their talk or occupations it does not
strike one as a very religious ceremony.
After nearly five hours of walking and
enjoyment we were very willing to leave
the Jewish quarter till the next day.
The oldest Synagogue, a queer, rude
looking building, was founded early in
the Thirteenth Century. Our guide told
us it was the oldeat in the world and the
only Gothic one. You stumble down
seven rude steps, go through a dark ante
room, and warned by the guide's voice,
avoid falling down ten more into the
church. The beautiful Gothic arches rise
dark and dim above you, and are beanti,
ful in spite of the dust and dirt of ages.
It has a strangely old, mouldering look,
and I think the very dust must be sacred,
for it cannot have been cleaned forten
dreds of years. An old man was arralg
ing candles at each seat in preparation for
the evening service, and the deeks were
coated inches deep with the grease. Cer
tainly the Jewish hatred of Gentiles has
been considerably softened, for when we
asked if strangers were allowed to wit
ness their services, our withered guide
answered, "Certainly; to us there are no
strangers." This old gentleman looked
carefully after our interests, on coming
out there stood the little black-eyed rap,
muffin, who had guided us, waiting 'to
conduct us to the old burying ground,
and with him a ragged coMpanion. "No,
no," said our old guide, "Not two, one is
enough!" And the man at the grave yard
gate administered a gentle rebuke to.us
because we gave our little guide too
much. We have found no Christian so
careful for our interests.
The laetinterment in this strange , old
place was in 1780; the first our guide as-
sured us was 1,200 years ago. A hun
dred years more or Ices matters little to
such an age as that! Hundreds of old
time worn stories are crowded close to.

overgrown with bushes and creeping

were broken and faLen together. where
the balls from the,Swedi sh bombardment
struck them in 1848. Here and there a
stone:was covered thick with smallstones
andipebbles. , "We do not use flowers to
show ourremembrance of the dead," said
our guide, "but stones." Somehow it
seemed in keeping with the dreariness
and desolation of the place. We foun'd
our way back to Cbxlstendoin through
theieily heart of the "old clothes".die
