Arrived In Rome Monday night at
12:30. The first thing we did in the
morning was to view the column of
Marcus Aurelius, built, on a square
around which on a spiral path, are a
number of figures in relief, portray
ing Roman soldiers and the con
The column, itself is a lofty one,
surmonted by a statue of St. Paul.
Here wore proofs of the throe great
epochs of Roman history. Pagan,
Christian and Modern Rome.
We then drove to the Roman For
um. Here we view the remains of
the once magnificent Temple of Sa
turn, erected four hundred and nine
ty years before the birth of Christ,
the Arch of Serverus, what remain
ed of the Rostra. We then passed
through the Arch of Titus.
Following the Sacred Way we at
length reached the Colosseum. We
counted the eighty arches leading to
the interior. The outer corridors are
made of massive stone, piled one up
on another and then bound together
by iron clamps. Gigantic as it was,
over two-thirds of it has now disap
Oil Wednesday, we drove out to
see St. Paul's church. Here under the
High Altar, is a sarcophagus which
contains the body of St. Paul. This
church is over four hundred feet in
length, and along the sides at the
top of the wall are the Mosaic por
traits of the Popes.
We then went to St. Peters, the
largest church in the world. No il
lustration or description can do
justice to the vast interior. Yet.
they say it requires time to com
prehend the immensity of it, one
must visit it several times before
they are able to appreciate its size.
In this church there are forty-four
altars, seven hundred and forty
eight columns and three hundred and
The grave of the Galilean fisher
man, whose name the temple bears,
is under the grand High Altar, just
beneath the centre of the vast dome.
This altar is thirty yards long.
On Wednesday morning we were
given an audience with Pope Pius X.
On our arrival at the Vatican, we
were ushered into the beautiful room.
It was here the Holy Father met us.
One special feature in his gracious
kindness of his greeting touched me
very much, it was the tenderness
with which lie sent for the children
of the party to come near his throne
while he delivered his address of
After imparting the Aposttolic ben
ediction, he returned to his private
apartments and we left for the
Sistine Chapel to view the work of
Michel Angelo and Raphael.
From here, we passed through the
Art Galleries. In one corridor we
found over a thousand statues of
antiquity and there are many of these
From this, one can see that apart
from its religious associations, the
Vatican is of priceless value to the
world as a treasure house of art.
On the following day we drove
along the Appian Way, tlie most in
teresting road in Rome. It is over
490 miles long and on both sides of
it are the remains of thirty thousand
At length we reached the well
known cata combs, each took a can
dle and descended the dark stair
way. We went along the corridors,
where on either side are the open
graves of long ago victims.
Rome’s splendid churches, classic
statues and imposing ruins have made
a lasting impression in my mind.

Florence, one of tho most, attractive
cities in the world. Her famous art
galleries rank among the finest in
tiie world. One of these is tiie
l’itli Gallery. Tills was at one time
tiie residence of the King and Queen
of Italy. It i.> now a treasure-house
of art. It is here many of the orig

One of the oldest and most inter
esting structures of Florence is the
Baptistry. It’s bronze doors, repre
senting tiie history of the old teste
raent are the most beautiful doors
in tiie world. Crossing the street
we entered the famous cathedral.
Tiie interior of this church is very
plain, while the exterior is consider

We then drove to the home of Mo

tainly is wonderful and was very in

these beauties we visited the .marble
shops, where wonderful sculptures
On Sunday morning after going to
the church of the Holy Cross and
seeing the tombs of Michel Angelo
Dante,and other noted men, we drove
out upon the hills surrounding Flor-j
ence. The landscape is charming
and on the slopes are the old
homes of men and women, who have
filled the world with their renown.
Among these we saw the homes of
the Brownings, Dante, Michel Angelo
and Galileo. We entered the latter j
and saw' the very room where the
scientist had lived and labored.
We left Florence at 10:00 a. m.
Monday and reached the beautiful
city of Venice at 8:00 p. in. A city
built upon a hundred islands, linked
by over four hundred bridges. Imag
ine our surprise, on arriving at the
station, to find boats awaiting us
instead of carriages. This pleasing
sense of novelty appeals to all, and ,
it was with a feeling of anticipated
pleasure we seated ourselves within
a gondola and glided noiselessly out ''
into the Grand Canal. This canal is j
over two miles long and its form is
that of a huge letter “S.” Its banks
are lined with beautiful marble pal
aces, that rise directly from the sea.
On our way to the Grand Hotel we
passed under the “Bridge of Kialto,”
with its huge arch of marble. It is
over one hundred and fifty feet in
length and is said to have cast over
half a million dollars.
The next morning we visited St.
Mark’s cathedral, the treasure house
of Venice. There is no structure like
it in the world.
We saw the beauties and wonders
of the Doge’s Palace, crossed the
Bridge of Sights, went, down into the
dark dungeons and into the very
cells, where the prisoners were kept
until they were put to death; passed
the narro%v opening through which
the body was removed at night to be
duried in the sea.
Prom here we went to visit the
glass factory, watched them work,
then to the lace factory. Saw them
make the real Venetian lace.
The next morning found us in the
beautiful city of Milan. Here we
visited the famous Cathedral, the
finest specimen of Gothic architecture
in existence, and saw Leonardo da
Vinci's “Last Supper." In it the fig
ures, and above all that of Jesus
Christ, who set ms to spoalt, are of
u magnificence without equal. After
driving around the city for two
hours we took the ttrain for Lug
ano, beautifully situated on lovely
Lake Lugano. The ride was exquis
ite, right through the Alps, the scen
ery was beautiful.
At nine o'clock the next morning
we left for Fluolen. Hero we took
a steamer for Lucerne. Enjoyed our
trip on the lake very much.. After
a three hours ride wo arrived at
Lucerne, a prortty and attractive oily
reclining peacefully beside the lake.
The scenery Is grand, one never tires
seeing the snow capped Alps, rising
up to meet the sky, with here and
there a pretty water fall descending
into the valley below.
Next day we visited the famous
"Lion of Lucerne." It is considered
the simplest and most Impressive
monument in the world.
In the shade of tall trees spreads
a small sheet of water and behind It
rises a rock perpendicular, in a rec
ess reclines the prostrate figure of
a lion lliirly feet in length. It. was
sculptured by Thorwaldsen, and dedi
cated to the memory of the Swiss
guard who lost their lives in defense
of Louis XVI, at the opening of the
French Revolution. After visiting
other points of interest we left. Lu
