ICA'S PANAMA CANAL CELEBRATION.
C INTS of gold from vast oriental domes, Venetian blue o7 -ninarets. pro
digious works of sculpture and the arrival of notables frcm all parts
of the globe give glimpses of the great Panama-Pacific InternatiowiJ
Exposition as It will appear when its gates swing open to the wYorld
on Feb. 20. 1915.
Not for many years will the world be enabled to enjoy so marvelous a
c('.ection of the works of contemporary sculptors. The World's Columbian
Exposition at Chicago first .roved that the greatest talent might be engaged
to produce work of even temporary value. Since then more aud more atten
tion has been given at each succeeding exposition to sculpture as a form of
'decoration, and the great Panama-Pacific International Exposition at San
Francisco promises to surpass even Chicago's exquisite display.
Every phase of the exposition is far advanced. Thirty-three of'the world's
nations will participate with government displays, Argentina leading with a
government appropriation of $1,300.000 gold.

THE WORLD'S FIRST INDOOR AEROPLANE FLIGHT. PAN
A-cAPACIFIC INTERNATIONAL EXPOSITION, 915.
HEworld's first indoor aeroplane flight was made by Lin
?-:1o n Beach ey, the American avintor, on the grounds of the
A Planama-P~acifie International Exposition in San Francisco.
Starting at one end of the Palac:e of Machinery, which Is the
largest wooden fframe struc-i tre In the world, being almost 1,000 feet in
len;nth, P>leuchey attained a terrific momentum and rose Into the air to a
heiht of fifty feet, actually tlying for a distance of 300 feet. At the
Oll.site end of the building barriers of cloth were held by assistants to
lesen the impact of the aeropline. The machine, however, provided
with a hundred horsepower engine, easily tore through the cloth, and
athe aviator received a severe shaking up. The difficultIes of the flight
were increased by the fact that the interior arrangement of the build
ing consists of three longitudinal aisles each seventy-five feet In width,
and Beat-hey flew down the center aisle, having to keep a straight course
in order to prevent the aeroplane from striking the great columns of the

Shriners are Having
Time of Their Lives
Atlanta is not only opening sC
her arms, but her heart and rc
purse as well, to the Shriners
gathered there this week. The
Atlanta Journal describes a
''Shrine Park" as follows:
"Four thousand people or more, B
will make up the population of
one community that will appear R
like a mushroom Sunday morn
ing and vanish before another tl
Sunday comes. That community
will be 'Shrine Park,' the South
ern railway's train city, located
on a web of tracks at the North S'
avenue crossing, just at the left a
of Marietta street. There is
where scores of special trains, d,
200 or more sleeping cars, and S
dozens of dining cars will be,r(
parked by the Southern for the
great Shrine meeting. p]
"Four thousand people make:
quite a little city, don't they?'
And when women and children W
are among them, it can't be di
camped out in just any old fash- P1
'That is what the railroad w
officials who have created 'Shrine h,
park' knew full well. Months .
ago they began their arrangre
ments. Now everything is ready si
ana 'Shrme park' will be not a
canit, ut a miature city, lean
and anitary and conmfortable. M
The 4,000 people who will make
up its population will be as much
at home in Atlanta as anybody
who 1ives here. Shrine park will L
even have its own police force!
"And it will have its own

and sanitation. a
"Likewise its own telephone D
exchange, and long distance sta
tion and telegraph office.
"Even more than that. Shrine
park will be somewhat of a so- ti
cialist affair, for it will have its
conmiunit bath houses and its v
connmunitv store houses for pro- pi
visions and linen.
