The object of the proposed balloon voyage
cross the Atlantic by Prof. Wise is to make a
scientific exploration of the atmosphere. Ac
cording to a prospectus, it is an endeavor to

THE GRANT PACIFIC HOTEL.
One of the most marked institutions of the
outgrowth of life in our larger centers of
population is the great hotel, and no feature
is mure iiumuie iuu reiiiariuiLjie 111 utiw v-iii-cago
than the vast caravansaries that are to
make her the hotel city of the continent. The
largest of these, and the largest hotel struc
ture in the world, is the Grand Pacific, a cut
of which we give in this issue, at once the
pride and the marvel of the Garden City. Its
immense size and elegance are well indicated
in the nrravinr. anil verv reliable in suf??est-
ivenees as to the appointments and adorn
ments of the interior. The Grand Pacific cov
ers an area of 64,000 Square feet, an entire
block, bounded by Clark, Jackson, LaSalle
and Quincy streets. Opposite, on Clark street,
is rapidly rising the vast government building,
also occupying an entire square. The material
of the fronts of the great hotel is the beauti
ful olive-tinted Ohio sand-stone. The struc
ture cost over one million dollars, and its fur
nishing by the lessees, Messrs. George W.
uage, uavia A. uage, ana jonn a. nice, nearly
four hundred thousand dollars, an expenditure
warranted by their twenty years lease, and
securing throughout a richness, elegance, and
solidity that will give enduring attractiveness
to the hotel, and carry its fame among travel
lers all over the globe. The carpets of the
house, Axminster, Aubisson, Wilton and En
glish Brussels, are all in new styles, and large
ly in special designs, and aggregate over six
acres. The beautiful carpets or tne cornuors,
eleven feet wide, amount to over a mile in
length. The features of the hotel that most
strike the visitor and guest are the two im
mense interior courts, used respectively for
the grand office and the office arcade The
principal Dining Hall is 135 by 65 feet ; the La-
dies' Ordinary 75 by 75 feet ; the Grand Parlo
100 by 25 feet ; the noble promenade with its
Corinthian Colonnade is 130 by 30 feet. The
kitchen, fitted up with the most approved ap
pliances of the cuisine, is 140 by 60 feet. The
svstem of protection against fire is perfect.
The floors are filled in with cement, and the
floor beams bricked in between partitions.
The house has its regular disciplined hre brig
ade of fifty trusty emplovees. Standing iron
columns from the street, vast tankB in the
roof, the most powerful steam pump in the
city, with 3,000 feet of hose always kept at
tached in various parts of the house, a tele-
grapn nre alarm in every room, ana tne new
and perfect electric clock system of Prof.
Hamblot are among the appliances and safe
guards against conflagration. From three hy
drants on the roof the hotel force can protect
their own structure and help tne safety of ad
joining buildings. It would be difficult to sug
gest a feature iu a great hotel which the Grand
Pacifio has not. The entire work of carrying
the structure to completion has been for many
monthB in charge of the lessees, whose repu
tations and fortunes were made in the Sherman
House destroyed in the great fire. Few strang
ers will visit Chicago without making tne Urana
Pacific one of the principal lions of their visit.
Twenty months have given cnicago a marvel
lous beauty in her new structures, which in ex
tent more than restore her former business
capacity. Her streets are now lined with tall
blocks that are unsurpassed in variety and
richness in any city m the world. Our readers
will thank us for the presentment of the larcr
est and most striking structure of all, the
Grand Pacific, which on the first day of Juue,
1873, opened its doors to guests.
A Narrow Escape for Miss Nellie Grant.
On "Wednesday evening, just after 6
o'clock, Miss Nellie Grant left the
President s cottage for a ride in her
pony phaeton. She was unaccompanied,
except by the colored coachman. The
team was the President !s favorite span
of spirited black ponies, and they bowled
along the avenue in nae style. While
passing along the lower end of Ocean
avenue the pomes became suddenly
frightened and started into a furious
run. The driver manfully clung to tne
lines and did everything possible to
check the runaways, but all to no pur
pose, for tho? were unmanageable.
Miss Grant bravely kept her seat and
did not manifest any alarm, while the
plunginer ponies tossed the tiny carriage
on either side of the road. As the team
reached the residence of Mr. Franklin,
the agent of the Cunard line, they
whirled into the yard and across the
lawn, dashing themselves on to the
piazza, where they were stopped in their
mad career by tne astonisiied visitors,
Miss Grant was assisted from the car
riage, which miraculously escaped de
struction, and was warmly congratulated
on her narrow escape from serious in

Suggestions for Summer.
It is of ffreat importance that the system should
bo in a vigorous condition when the hot weather
commences. The effects of a high temperature
upon an enfeebled frame are always more or less
disastrous. The loss of substance and the declen'
Bion of nervous power, occasioned by excessive
heat, can only be compensated by the active,
healthful, and regular exercise of all the bodily
functions by which the waste of nature is replen
ished and the vital energies renewed. The great
utility of Hostetter'a Stomach Bitters as a means
of toning, invigorating and regulating the organs
of the body, is universally acknowledged. As a
tonic it stimulates the flagging appetite and
accelerates digestion; as a corrective it neutral
izes acidity of the stomach and relieves flatulency .
as an alterative and mild aperient it regulates the
liver and the bowels ; as an anodyne it promotes
tranquil sleep ; as a wholesome stimulant it im
parts firmness and elasticity to the relaxed and
trembling nerves, and as a blood depurent it puri
fies the vital stream. The value' of such a specific

THE GLORY UFaN OLD MAN
Is his flowing locks. This Tonic will bring out the
Hair in a few weeks on the baldest bead, where

will also color the Hair a most beautiful brown
and give it a very glossy appearance.
THE PRIDE OF YOUNG MEN
Is their Whiskers. This preparation will force
the Hair to grow wherever there is any roots;
therefore it will force the whiskers to grow in a
very short time. If used according to directions,
it will in every case have the most gratifying effect.
A WOMAN'S BEAUTY

produced for promoting the growth of the Hair. It
is also the most beautiful dressing a lady can have
in her toilet. It will remove every particle of dan
druff from the head, cleanse the scalp and prevent
its formation, and give the hair a most beautiful
glossy appearance. It, unlike all other prepara
tions for the Hair, Is entirely vegetable, and con
tains no lead, sulphur, or nitrate of silver, which
are so objectionable. There is nothing to compare
with It in the market. For sale by all druggists

Success in Business"
Depends very much upon
the energy, pluck and en
durance of those pursuing
it, and no man can possess
these qualities unless lie
has good health. Hence to
be successful in business men must guard against
the encroachments of all diseases, and in no way
can this be so effectually accomplished as by the
use of Dr. Smith's Celebrated OLD STTLB BIT
TERS. The direct effect of this Medicine is to cor
rect the Liver, purify the Blood and remove all
torpid and stagnant bile from the system, which is
the true safeguard against the attacks of disease

the cause of disease, and the patient re-
covers his health. They are the great;
blood purifier and a life-giving principle,
a perfect Kenovator and Invigorator
of the system. Never before in the
history of the world has a medicine been
compounded possessing the remarkable
