In the entire Worlds Pair no
state, with the exception of Mis
souri, has participated with a
greater variety and abundance of
display than Minnesota. Five of
the great exhibit palaces show
the results of her industry and
her manifold resources, and the
Minnesota state house ranks
among the most beautiful and
artistic of the buildings on the
This structure, that is Byzan
tine in character, is not of wood
and staff, to be torn down at the
expiration of the exposition, like
most of the fair buildings. I is
composed of concrete blocks,
with all its parts so adjusted
that it can be taken back to its
native state and erected as a per
manent momento to the great
exposition. The ground floor is
in one large reception hall where
all the daily papers of the state
are kebt on file. There is also a
post office and a check room here.
Opening from the reception room
are two alcoves that serve as
music rooms for ladies and gen
tlemen. The furniture is all hand
made and is the work of the man
ual training departments of the
Minneapolis and St. Paul public
schools. The windows are enlike
riched by very beautiful stained
glass which bears the names of
all the Minnesota counties.
HE exhibit in the Palace of
Agriculture at the Worlds Pair
is both extensive and interesting.
It is a tangible presentation of
Minnesota's time-honored nick
name, "the bread and butter
state." In the great glass-walled
refrigerator, the most imposing
piece of butter scuplture is the
reproduction of the Falls of St.
Anthony, with a canoe in which
stands Father Hennepin, His
companions are an Indian and a
white man. The figure, about
life size, the canoe and the water
are all made of butter.- Across
the aisle from the refrigerator is
the bread and butter pavillion of
Minnesota. In the center is an
other cold storage glass case con
taining abutter statue of a mother
giving her two boys bread and
butter. The pavillion is beauti
fully decorated with grains and
grasses, most important among
which is wheat, the leading pro
duct of this state. On the walls
are two paintings, showing typi
cal farm scenes. There are also
exhibits of the great flouring
mills for which Minnesota is
Sheeley & Young's famous
musical farce comedy, Maloney's
Wedding Day, will be presented
at the city opera house on Sep't
7. The entire play has been re
written, remade and revised this
season, and everything old hasquite
been obliterated. The first act
of the new farce is declared a
"hummer." I transpires in the
widow Nolan's restaurant, and
never was there such a restau
rant scene. The things done here
would elicit laughter from a brick
wall or transform the cold coun
tenance of the eternal sphinx into
a broad grin. A bevy of pretty
girls in tasty costumes enlivens
the actions of the farce and adds

He just the plainest sort o'man
With a still plainer face:
A big, red-blooded, common man
W ithout no frilK 01 lace
W hat cares he if his clothes don't fit,
Or if Ins hair is red'
Of dignity ho'hsln a bit
He cusses some, 'tis said
He has no peif ume on his bieath.
No taff on his tongue.
And when he seiaps he fights 'till death,
Oi 'till the last clog's hung
And yet we love this awkwaid one
This bold and simple Robeit Dunn.
Hi-, enemies say he's no good
The dudes call him a slob.
But we who live out in the woods
Have lots of faith in Rob
We know he did his duties well
When he woiked for the state
And all the lies those big guns tell.
Were mostly boin in hate
Our love, our loj alty lie's won.
We'll back him with our wealth
We love him not for what he's done.
But what he is himself
We country folks love like a son

so severe that he had to have the
