subject this year will be, "Resolved,
"That Foreign ' Immigration to the
United States Should Be Further Re

SEELG TOE tiOIM
THE ZONE SAN FRANCISCO EX
By Mrs. H. A. Boyd.
I am not sure that I shall be able
to describe the glories of the Expo
sition Midway. Years drop from your
shoulders like magic, cares flee away,
even you enemies appear to have a
halo around their heads when you
enter the midway of the county-or
state fair of your own home town.
Just imagine that these pleasant sen
sations experienced in past or recent
years have been magnified many,
many times and you will be able to
comprehend the pleasures of the
Zone of Uie Exposition held at San
The Zone covered seven city blocks
and every inch was that much space
of pleasure. Upon both sides of the
throtighfare were places of amuse
ment, attractions large and small to
lure and charm the visitor.
The largest and most elaborate
concession on the Exposition Grounds
was "Japan Beautiful" which cover
ed a space of about 100,000 square
feet. It showed actual scenes of Jap
anese life in city, country and village.
The entrance to this entrancing scene
was an exact reproduction of ' the
statue of Buddha, which was sup
posed to have been reproduced for
the first time outside the Orient.
Casting all cares away I rode in the
aeroscope, and at a height of 265
feet above the ground, I had a bird's
eye view of the Exposition Grounds,
Presidio, the Pacific Ocean, Golden
Gate, Oakland, Berkley and many
other places. My view of these places
was certainly a bird's eye view for
the higher the thing went up the
smaller my eyes grew, till when it
reached its greatest height, I am
sure my eyes were no larger than a
bird's eye and a very small bird's eye
at that. The aeroscope is supposed to
be the largest passenger carrying
machine ever built. It weighed 700
tons, was 330 feet above the level
of the sea and had a sea horizon of
200 miles. It was as tall as a build
ing twenty -two stories' high. The
passenger car had two floors 38x19
feet and could seat comfortably 118.
We were certainly glad to have so
many persons go up with us and as
we slowly ascended we remembered
the old adage that "misery loves com
pany." We were not exactly misera
ble, in fact we cannot tell just how
we felt, but we do know that we were
glad of the other 117 persons in the
car aside from ourself. The seats
were arranged to give an excellent
view and we took advantage of look
ing In all directions except down
It took one year to construct this
machine. It was the only all steel
and concrete structure on the
grounds, 380 tons of concrete and
320 tons of steel being used in its
construction. We learned all of this
before we went up. About 6,000 per
sons took the trip daily.
The most gigantic undertaking on
the grounds was an exact duplicate
of the Grand Canyon the exhibit of
the Sante Fe Railroad Company. It
was designed to give an adequate
idea ot the Grand Canyon of Arizona
and the result obtained was wonder
ful. The inventive genius of man has
been developed to the highest point
and during the process of develop
ment he has done some wonderful
things. The things accomplished by
man however, sink into insig
nificance, when compared with the
works of nature. The traveler go
ing from one place to another seek
ing pleasure and adventure discovers
one surprise after another. Things
which tax his Imagination and make
it almost impossible for him to be
lieve them real although they stand
right before his eyes have been ac
complished by nature. One ot the
most stupendous works of nature
which attracts the eye of the tour
ist and challenges his attention 'and
curiostity is the Yellow Stone Park
with its vast area of boiling springs,
craters, geysers, etc.
An exact reproduction at this Park
was seen on the Zone. The effect was
accomplished partly by moving pic
tures, plaster of paris and electrical
devices. Old Faithful Inn, Golden
Gate Cliff, Eagle Nest Rock, Mam
moth Hot Springs, Fishing Cone, Up
per Geyser Basin, Yellow Stone Lake
and many other notable places' were
I am sure that I shall be able to
give you only a taint impression of
the stupendousness and magnitude of
the exhibit portraying the Bible
story ot the Creation as found In the
first and second chapters of Genlsis.
In its development, electrical, me
chanical and moving picture devices
seem to have reached their climax.
The first scene depictured showed the
scene before the morning of the cre
ation. "In the beginning God cheated
the heaven and the earth, and the
earth was without form, and void:
and darkness was upon the face ot
the deep, and the spirit of God moved
upon the face of the waters." The
pictures come one after another
showing what was done on the first
day, the second day, etc. You see the
earth, given form, you witness the
formation of the sea,' the dry land,
the animals, the creeping things, the
grass, the trees, the fowls, cattle and
then comes the climax: God says,
"Let us make man in our own
image," and man comes forth in the
glory of his physical being. Before
your eyes he comes forth from the
dust ot the earth and God breathes
into the nostrils the breath of life.)
"And man became a living soul." He
dwelt in the Garden of Eden. You
see Adam when the deep sleep fell
upon him and the woman is made
from his rib. Woman appears before
you in all her beauty and the man
rises and recognizes her as his mate.
Upon leaving ' the building your
mind was dazed with the stupendous
ness of the thing you have Just seen.
Every detail of the story is made
vividly clear to your mind. To Bible
students the spectacle was dazzling.
During the rendition a famous quar
tette . rendered "The , creation" b

alone was worth the trip to the Pa
cific. There were many minor attrac
tions ot Interest to the tourist. The
Riding Girl rode up and down and I
around the side of a barrel shaped 1
contrivance In an auto at about the
rate of fifty or sixty miles an hour.
When I saw her I realized that I was
not so brave after all when I went
up in the aeroscope.
The most wonderful painting I
have ever seen was that ot a woman
reclining on a couch. The picture
was called "Stella" and to me it was
a stella accomplishment ot great
magnitude. The more you looked at
it the more lifelike it became and it :
seemed at one time that I saw her
breatho. As I stood there I came to i
the conclusion that if it was a live :
woman, she was the best poser I have
ever seen and it she was a painted

picture for hours at the time. The j
judge who tried the case decided he
would have .to see the picture and he ,

When he had seen it he immediately !
gave the woman a divorce stating '
that a man was n hrute to keep a j

So many of our Globe readers enjoy
reading after Mrs,
'H. A. Boyd 'who
writes such beautiful articles in the
Globe. We think in this section of
the state that Mrs. Allen Boyd and
husband are two great people and
we always enjoy reading after them
because they are great leaders; and
his place as a leader is in the Sunday
school forces will ibe hard to fill.
We congratulate him on his game of
push and succors, and we say go
ahead Rev. Boyd.
