From the time of Mausolus, King of Caria, to whom Artemsia, his widow, erected a stately monument, and from which the word "mausoleum" has Its origin, that form of tomb to the memory of the dead has steadily grown In favor. Both the New and the Old Worlds bear abundant testimony of the fact. While many of the most magnificent tombs, monuments, shafts and statues adorn the famous cemeteries the world over, there are hbndredt of thousands occupying conspicuous places In the great cities- permanent memorials to the memories of men distinguished for their services for mankind along all lines of statesmanship and human endeavor, and within full view of the multitudes. The most elaborate and costly In the world, next, perhaps, to the pyramids, is the Tag Mahal, In India, which Shah Jehnan, greatest of tho Mogul Kings, erected to tin- memory of his wife, at cost of SK.WO.OOU.
