Tho stranger who nrrlves In Chicago
llnda himself nt son, and unlcsB ho is
skilled in tho art of travel ho Is more
than likely to ho fleeced in peeking
guidance of tho Jehus that swam tho
various depots. Chicago 1h a city of
great diBtances nnd multiplied railway
HtntioiiH, and thoBltuation is at onco con
fusing to now comers particularly bo
this crowded seuson. Therefore, to
strangers and oven those who havo a
limited acquaintance of tho city, my
advice is not to como until you havo cor
responded with bo mo relative, friend or
reliable agent and made your arrange
ments. When you nrrivo you will find
it advantageous to know just what to do
und where to go, independent of hack
, men and idlers, who are on tho keen
watch for suckers. Information should
bo sought only of ;olieomun and uni
formed depot agents, and oven of them
ask only tho directions you havo been
advised to take They aro bombarded
day and night, and it is not to bo
wondered at if they frequently Iobo
patience and give unsatisfactory replies.
Don't bring a trunk or oven a largo
valise bnggngo always proves a heavy
item of expense, porter's tips included.
Unless you aro ambitious to bo seen as
well as to bco, ono good suit of clothes
will bo found enough for a fortnight's
visit, with sufficient lined for a duily
change. A small grip will hold this,
together with your own toilet articles,
including u hair brush. A gentleman
who can shuvo himself and has his outfit
with him will not regrot it, owing to tho
crowded shops and incompetents that
are counterfeiting as barbers.
After you havo secured a room and
are ready to sco tho city and tho fuir,
buy a dime map at any nows staud and
study "tho lay of tho land." This will
qva vmi tnnnv Itama sif ovtmnan rullnvn
"JsoTIJoVaSkingque'itions and enable you
to systemizo your sight-seeing. If you
patronizo a hotel, boarding-house or tent
near tho fair grounds you will buvo rail
way, boat and street car faro a very
considerable item in tho aggregate.
Your expenso coming to tho city and
whilo you aro hero will not vary much
either way from tho following cstimato:
Railway ticket, ono faro for tho round
trip; lodging or room, 81 a day with
room-mate or 92 without; meals, 91.50,
or 50 cents each by strict economy; car
fare, 25 cents a duy; world fair ticket, 50
cents. Total, 93.25 a day.
In a word, 825 a week will cover tho
cost if hard economy is enforced, but
incidentals multiply iiko stars on u clear
night and seem quite as ditllcult to keep
back. Fifty cents, howover, pays for
everything to bo seen in tho fairgrounds,
and no extras are necessary unless you
yield to temptation and patronizo tho
side shows in tho Midway plalsanco.
Tho plaiBanco itself is frco nnd a world's
fair of its own without entering a single
ono of its admission shows. Tho strange
and grotesque foreign peoplo who con
stitute its population aro quito as fond
of seeing and being seen as some Ameri
cans are, and freely exhibit themsolves
on this odd cosmopolitan thoroughfuro
every day and evening. Somo of them,
like their side shows, aro palpable fakes.
A few, howover, aro genuine, and if ono
has tho money to spuro their exhibits
are worthy seeing being educational
and enjoyable. Thero aro in all about
titty of them, and it would tako 825 to
see tho comploto list.
Tho majority who como to tho world's
fair have but a week or ten days to sco
tho whole of it, and must therefore savo
their timo as well as their money. Tho
way to do this is to see it systematically.
Being familiur with tho grounds I offer
tho following suggestions and routo:
Most peoplo arrive at tho main entranco
Sixty-fourth street and ask for tho
administration building and plaza. This
is one of tho finest viows tho exposition
affords and gives a grand first impression.
Devote your first duy to tho machinery
and agriculturo buildings, and tho ox
hibts south of them. Give your first
evening on tho grounds to tho olectricul
building. Tho second day should bo
given to tho transportation, horticultural
and women's buildings all in u row
saving your timo and strength. Dovoto
your third day to tho great manufac
tures' building tho largest in tho world
covering nearly fifty acres. To see it
thoroughly would tako a fortnight or ton
days, but give- no timo to oxhibits that
do not particularly interest you. You
may need part of tho fourth duy to finish
seeing tho great manufactures' building,
and thon still havo timo left to puss
leisurely through tho government and
fisheries' buildings neur by,
Start out on tho fifth day and visit
tho great art gallery. This will require
a wholo day or in part, according to
your appreciation of art.
For tho sixth iluy's program choose
between making a leisure tour of tho
Midway Plaisauco or tho varied and
educating state buildings, including
your own, all. of which aro launched in
a group or circle. This brings you to
tho eight day, which you should dovoto
to a tour of tho buildings that havo been
erected by tho foreign governments
England, Russia, France, Germany,
Austria, Turkey, Sweden, Norway,
llrazil, India, and a dozen others, each
of u peculiar and interesting style, tho
liko of which you may novor have Been
except in pictures, or over have tho
chunco of seeing again.
Tho ninth day should bo devoted to a
general roviow of tho grounds, tho north
island, tho lako front, tho lagoons, tho
navil ship und boat pier.
You will rcquiro tho tenth day to
revisit tho main buildings and sco ex
hibits that you havo missed, but mean
while heard about. Keep a list of these
us you chnnco to hear of them, and
make ono last job of it, if you want to
economizo your time.
This program is admitted to bo tho
only practical one, and it must bo fol
lowed if you would see tho world's fair
thoroughly in ten days. Otherwise tho
show is incomprehensible nnd enerva
ting. Tho grounds cover nearly 700
acres and bo idlo rambling is not to bo
thought of, except by thoso having tho
wholo summer. Tho nbovo program
allows you your evenings for visiting tho
various theatres and shows, if you can
afford it, or enjoying tho free bund con
cert on tho plaza.
Thero aro four ways of travel bo
twecn tho heart of Chicago and tho
fair grounds. Tho Illinois Central fast
trains muko tho run without a stop in
fifteen minutes, faro 10 cents each way.
Tho regular suburban passenger trains
make it in half an hour and charge
22 cents each way. Tho elevated alloy
road requires fifteen minutes and tho
.Wabash cable, an,hour,each way, stop
ping frequently, faro 5 cents. Tho
boats afford tho cleanest and most en
joyablo trip, 15 cents ono way or 25
for tho round trip.
Don't fail to havo looso, easy shoes,
with thick soles or your feet will cause
you untold suffering. Let your breuk
fast consist of a cup of coffee, a small
steak, a dish of potatoes and possibly
a dish of berries. At noon on tho
grounds in any of tho buildings let your
lunch bo coffee, a cut of meat, and
bread and butter enough. Dinner or
supper order meat and pastry or fruit.
You may bo a day or two finding u
good restuurant in tho vicinity of your
hotel, then stick to it and tho sumo
waiter, it ho serves you satisfactorily.

Inside information is accessible of an
ugly state of affairs in the office of Labor
Commissioner Erion. It is to tho effect
that Commissioner Erion nnd his clerk
aro not finding themselves to bo en
tirely congenial. Tho clerk, who is u
sister of A. E. Cady, chairman of tho
republican stuto central committee, has
recently complained to friends that tho
commissioner's manner of treating her
has been extremely distasteful und
annoying; thut in his instructions us to
her work ho ulways addresses her as
littlo girl, especially when ho has any re
proof to offer, and thut ho is often over
bearing and insulting. Sho recently
laid her grievances beforo ox-Governor
Thayer, and ho in turn communicated
them to Governor Crounso. Tho latter
reassuringly advised her to go ahead
and attend to her work, paying as littlo
uttention as possible to tho objection

mukes many changes in man and nature,
but down by (ho sea one ulwujs seems
to find tho solf-sanio attractions. The
great and ever restless ocean, with its
low and high tide, its beautiful snow
capped waves, tho delightful breakers,
together with tho superb bathingull
reminds tho writer of ninny happy days
in yeurs gone by.
Tho season hero is now at its heigth,
and tho crowdsuro lurgo.yet tho general
depression in financial matters keeps
away hundreds whoso familiar faces are
generally seen hero each bcuboii. Atlan

Surf bathing is, of course, tho great
attraction, yet thoro nro numerous other
pleasant entertainments to fill in odd
moments. Tho surf hero is said to bo
tho best on tho cntiro coast, it being
uniformly smooth and tho sand freo
from rocks, sheila and debris.
Over 10,000 peoplo ruuy bo seen
on tho beach hero daily in
hundreds of different costumes, from
navy bluo flannel to colored silk. It is
a protty sight indeed.
Tho other day I saw a vision of loveli
ness, beautifully robed in bright silk,
floating about with it tiny red silk Tarn
O'Shantcr cap covering her head. In
her right hand sho hold an umbrella to
protect her from tho rays of old Sol, whilo
her left arm did scrvico as a pillow. My
kodak was not at hand at tho timo, or a

aro numerous other pretty pictures to

big city dailies hnvo an ample supply of
them every Sunday.
This is n grand pluco for all; thero is
no distinction between prince und
pauper. It is not tho now beginner that
enjoyB it tho most, for tho old-timers
that huvo boon coming hero regularly
for yeurs seem to delight in tho water ub

all uliko in u refreshing bath.
Wo riBO at about 8 o'clock here, break
fast at I) o'clock; tho timo until 11 o'clock
is devoted to reading and writing, then
comes tho bath for un hour or more, fol
lowed by dinner at 1:30 o'clock. The
afternoons uro mostly spent in Bulling,
crabbing, fishing or in repose. Supper
ut 0:30 o'clock, und tho evening is given
to promenades on tho board-walk, which
is a continuous wood pavement twenty
flvo feet wido and five miles long on tho
edgo of tho water, raised about ten feet
bo as to allow tho wutor to pass under it

Tho lurgo four-decked pier is another
feature of enjoyment whoro on u hot
day thousands of peoplo aro accom
modated. It extends 1,400 feet into the
ocean, and ut its terminus tho sou breezo
is truly delightful. A dancing pavilion
00x170 feet with full orchestra every
evening mukes it u very popular resort
Near tho pier is a mammoth merry-go-round,
tho delight of hundreds of young
folks und children. Several largo wheels
on tho order of tho world's fuir Ferris
wheel uro also found hero.
At tho Academy of Music on tho board
walk tho Gaiety opera company is play--ing
a very successful Beason. Tho com
pany is headed by Milton A boon nnd
Marion ChcBtor, nnd tho support is very

plays well attended. Tho company is
from tho Bijou theatre, Philadelphia,

for the republican nomination, and his

belief that if Maxey Cobb reaches tho

tho highest vote of any cundlduto on the

Henry Hoagluiid, A. C. Langdon, Louie
Otto, Ernst Hunger und W. J. Bobout,
of this city; Alva Smith, of Mill precinct,
und still there's more to follow.
At this-stage of tho campaign Trout
pen and Houglund appear to huvo the
cull, but Smith, and Langdon, and
Hunger, and Bobout and Otto deny thiB
with great unanimity. Hunger and
Bclwut both livo in tho Sixth wurd, bo
ono of thorn is certain to be thrown over
the transom ut tho primary election.
Hunger declaroB thut Bebout uln't In it
for a minute, while the latter asserts
that Hunger has no show on earth. Of
course theso uro both disinterested opin
ions. But all signs und portents Indicate
thut tho real fight for sheriff will occur
in tho primary election in tho Second
wurd, where Houglund nnd Langdon
will cross swords for supremacy. These
gentleiiioii,l)oth reside in tho Second, nnd
naturally both can't havo the delegation,
and that moans it fight. It Is freely pre
dicted thut Langdon has nearly every
tighter in tho wurd on his side und is
certuin to win two to ono. Tho Bitino
fellows who supported J. D. Purkcr for
councilman against Fred Krone last
Bpring, uro suid to bo for Landgon, acd
this is suid to bo an invincible urmy. A
rumor litis been going tho rounds for
Boverul duys to tho effect that Houglund
realizes thut ho is leading it forlorn hope
in tho Second wurd und hits decided to
move over to tho Fourth, and como into
tho convention with that imwcrful wurd
ut his back. Mr. Houglund brands this
story ub tin invention of tho enemy,
however, nnd declares that ho intends
to wage a winning fight in tho Second
against all odds.
Mr. Hoagland says Lungdon's candi
dacy is only a blind; thut Langdon is
running in tho interest of JohtiTiom
pen, and that if Langdon curries tho
ward ho will throw tho delegation to
Trompen ut tho proper time, thereby re
dlining his position us county jailor.

County Clerk Woods hopes to sue

by acclamation. It is said thero Ib tt

thut lucks verification.
Thero hnvo been rumors of opposition
to Judgo Lansing's ro-uominiition, but
thus far the opposition has assumed no
