TREE CULTURE IN GERMANY.
It Is Regarded us One of the Most
Prized Occupations of the
While congress and the several
state legislatures have for years
been flooded with petitions and
proposed laws for tho preserva
tion of the forest trees of the
country, nearly all of them more
or less defective, the peoplo of
Germany have solved the problem
with very little ado. Germany is
an old country. Centuries ago
what wo might call its virgin
timber was exhausted and tho
country found itself with a dense
population dependent on a limited
area of laud to supply its needs
for wood material. What should
they do? Should they stint their
use in this direction to a niggard
ly amount? Should they call on
tho stock of newer countries for
their supply? They did neither
of these things. They went to
work to develop tho resources
and capabilities of their own
lands. The states and the nobles
supported tho work. Scientists
labored and managers expert
mentod. Forest schools wero
established to spread through
he land tho knowledge that had
been gaiued. Finally they piled
up a mass of exact, information
about trees and everything relat
ed to their life, and established a
system of forest lnaiuigemont
that is one of the finest mouu
nients of the thoroughness, the
conservatism and the patience of
tho German race. And today
the forest stands as oiks of tho
prime objects of the people's re
gard, a source of health, wealth
and national independence.
EXPOSITION'S SECOND WEEK.

Philadelphia, Kept. 10. Tho early
morning visitor Ht the exposition
grounds on tho first day of the second
week found the great while "nuudlnKS
enveloped in a dense fo?. hut tho
workmen and tho denizens of the Es
planade astir und busy. The sun,
however, quickly broke through the
veil of mist and a cheerful, bright duy
The earliest uiul ituir.t curious among
the visitors to the exposition buildings
were tho Oriental Inhabitants of the
Chinese village, who wandered uhotit
rmld the ponderous machinery and In
spected the mii.iU curiosities with
childlike wct:dr;r und delight. They
passed ohi'ut i;i gror.pa before the
crowds bes;:in to thicken, shrinking
from contai t with the native slght
r.ecrs, who tinr.My puehrd upon them
In such numhevn s to drive them hack
Into the Espianaile and the seclusion
of their homes in the Chinese village.
A very curious spinning top and a
revolving ntla3 divided the wrapped
attention of n score of the Inquisitive
people of the e.u-t, hut It wus observed
that wherever tho most color or the
most eurloeEly continued nnd delicate
mechanism va3 to be found were the
localities most eagerly sought by them.
It hns been remarked that they Boon
discovered that they were themselves
tia great objects of curiosity to the
crowds which hcan to arrive dur
ing their Inspection of tho big Bhow,
and their timidity under the keen in
spection of the natives was amusing.
They were like little herds of start
led fawns surprised by the uppearance
of the hunter. One party, accompanied
by an Interpreter, found much enter
tainment in Inspecting an immense
globe hearing representations of vari
ous types of the nations of the earth.
There were lifelike.-figures of Indians,
Europeans, Japanese, Moors, , Esqui
maux, Turks and Tartars, but not the
figure of a Chinese.solltary or grouped.
Two of the almond eyed visitors walk
ed around this globe several times, In
specting It closely, after which they
joined their companions and indulged
in gestures of indignation and dis
gust. Curiosity impelled a bystander
to ask the reason for the display of
bo much feeling over the peculiar ex
hibit. "They failed to find anythlnc that
looked llko a Chinese and were an
noyed thut a Jap hud seen selected to
represent the far east," was the reply.
Other inhabitants of the Esplanade
made an early morning round of the
Main Building, but none of them were
either as curious or interested aa the
Chinese. They, however, added a pic
turesque spice to the scene. Two of
the inhabitants of the negro planta
tion occupied the attention of a num
ber of young men, who Insisted that
they had been Imported from a near
by street rather thnn from Kentucky.
The grizzly old fellows, whose man
ner, vocabulary and dialect, to say
nothing of their ancient appearance,
bore out the truth of their claim to
have heeii ante-bellum slaves on a
Kentucky plantation, Anally became
highly indignant. "Look hero, honey,"
said one of them, "Ise been done tend
ed to gentlemen afore you and your
white trash people hab been born. I
was owned by a gentleman. My old
masser was a Clay. You neher see no
real slave nigger afore, you didn't," and
the highly exercised old men walked
out of the building and retreated be
hind tho walls of "the plantation."
When the morning fog retreated be
fore the face of tho sun the exposi
tion buildings came out in brilliant
relief, the flags floating above tha
main entrance wero found to announce
to the world that the exposition was
progressing. The flags above the
Pediment, which surround the quad
ragla of Victory, displayed tho letters
C V K 8, which in the international
commercial code indicated the word
exposition, while those to the south
represented the letters D P B R, which
in the code represent the word pro
gressing. All of tne passing shipping
on the river, as well as those persons
on land familiar -with the code, were
thus advised of the success of the
great exposition and its cheerful prog
ress. Those visitors who came upon the
Esplanade after 10 o'clock found not
only a new thing in the fully equip
ped Chinese restaurant, but all the at
tractions of tnat feature of the ex
position in full swing.
The Chinese village inhnbitants wero
becoming more familiar with their
surroundings. The Oriental Coffee and
Smoking Parlors und tho Theater are
well patronized and the unimuls in the
Hugenbuck show are doing the most
wonderful thinss imuginable. Tho
Esplanade, in the brilliant sunshine,
Indeed, presented a most attractive
and animated appearunce. The melo
dious songs from tho natives of the old
plantation fell pleasantly upon the ear
even above the deep lunged young men
who described what may be found be
hind' the entrance doors.
Within the exposition building the
progress made during the past two
days In perfecting the displays and
adding to the attractions of the ex
hibition was quickly apparent to those
who had watched the unfolding of th
pluns of those in charge of the ex
hibits. Ample power for the machin
ery is now furnished by two boilers
of 250 horse power each, which are In
commission, and In a few days two
ether boilers, with 300 horse powor
each, will be added to these.

Philadelphia, Sept. 19. Expressions
from abroad since the opening of the
exposition indicate that forulgu nations
are taking particular note of it. Cable
dispatches from London state that tlio
press of Great Hrluin reminds the
government that this Is a time lor
reflection, and urges England to "em
ulate the careful methods of America,
as shown by the Export Exposition, in
nursing and extending lis trade. A

SOME ARCHITECTURAL BEAUTIES
Btrlklnir J;'enturon or tho Oi-uutl Kn
trunoo to to llio Mul n Hiillulnn
of tho Kxpoi-t lCximMt Ion.
Philadelphia, Sept. 10. Tho archi
tectural beauty of the buildings of the
National Export Exposition has beon
a mattor of favorable comment since
the opening day. The sculptured adron
mcnts of the Main building have beon
especially admired. They very happily
symbolize the idea of drawing the na
tions of the eurth together in u close
brotherhood of trado.
Three pavilions are connected so as
to form one complete structure, which
at first view has the uppearance of a
great marble puluce, und conveys the
impression of permunency. Its admir
able design, fine structural execution
and architectural embellishments have
strongly brought out its effectiveness
and the artistic allegorical work oi
the sculptors add greatly to its attract
iveness. Each of the three pavilions
which constitute the Main building is
ornamented with u pediment nt either
end, containing figures in high rebel
illustrating th) six continents. On the
north pavilion tho pediments represent
"Africa" and "Australia," on the cen
tral pavilion "Asia" and "Europe,"
and on the south pavilion "North
America" and "South America." Above
each of these pediments are two groupa
and an eagle, the latter occupying a
position Just above the apex of tha
pediment. The groups which supple
ment the roof ornamentation are ten
feet high, and eyrauollzo "Corn,""Spin-
ping," "Rookmaklng" nnd "dns" on
the north pavilion, "Wine," "Coal,"
"Cotton" and "Wool" on the central
pavilion, and "Iron," "Electricity,"
"Forestry" and "Stone" on the south
One of the most significant and ex
tensive ornamentations of the build
ing Is the great pediment which occu
pies a conspicuous pluce above tha
doorways of the main entrance at the
middle of the north pavilion. This
work ot art, which is 30 feet long,
with an extreme height of ton feet,
represents "Commerce." At the feet
of the central figure, which typilles
"Commerce," sits "Mercury;" at Its
right Is a figure representing "Pe:e,"
and group of "Neptune," ft manner,
a nalnd and a dolphin around a boat's
prow, symbolizing "Navigation," and
on tho left are figures representing
"Abundance," "Fortune," "Labor" and
a group typifying "Industry." A quad
rate, lfi feet high, to the top of the
figure of "Victory," stands above the
pediment, and on either side is a group
10 feet high, one representing "Trans
portation" and the other "Navigation."
Other prominent features of the orna
mentntlon at the main entrance will be
large circular placques, modeled in re
lief, with the seals of the United
StateR, tho ntate of Pennsylvania, the
Franklin Institute, the Philadelphia
Commercial Museum and the city of
Philadelphia. In addition to the orna
ments enumerated others of a strictly
architectural character, such as mould
ings, columns, capitals and bnses, bal
ustrades and cornices contribute to the
general effectiveness and beauty of the
BLAZES OF ELECTRIC LIGHT
Ileauty and Extent of tlio DlHplays
mid Decoration nt tlio Great
Philadelphia, Sept. 19. The electric
al decorations and electric displays of
a useful and somewhat ornamental
character form a very interesting feat
ure of the National Export Exposition.
At night the Interiors of the group
of buildings are brilliantly Illumin
ated by a combination of electrical sys
tems, the power for which is furnish
ed partly from the power plant In the
exposition grounds and from city elec
trical companies. Within the build
ings are 400 arc lamps of various kinds
and designs, with u nominal power of
2,000 candles each. These, with a
large number of Incandescent lamps,
ore supplemented by the electrical dis
plays connected with the numerous ex
hibits, which In one or two instances
are of extraordinary beauty. The
electrical exhibits themselves are in
no single instance of great magnitude,
but In numbers nnd variety they are
most interesting nnd Important. They
represent rather those electrical con
trlvunces which are uniquo and use
ful, and which are of service to the
Bmall nnd local conveniences of life,
and great nnd extensive operation.
At night the exterior of the build
ings is outlined in a blaze of electric
light. The Muln building will be
specially brilliant from the exterior.
Upon its roofs at regular intervals are
high flagstaffs, from which, during the
day, flutter the colors of all nations.
The top of these llagstafTs, instead ot
being decorated In the usual common
place way by gilded balls, are orna
mented by largo opalescent globes,
each of which Is a 500 candle power
incandescent light. About the cor
nices of the buildings, below the flng
staffs, are strung hundreds of other In
candescent lumps, making a line of
fire, which extends entirely around the
structures, marking their outlines
from a groat distance. These electrical
effects from above form a fine fringe
for the bronder illumination below.
The outlines of the windows extending
from under the cornices, almoBt to the
ground, are indicated by lines of in
candescent lumps, which, aided by the
bright light from within, gives to the
group of exposition buildings the ap
peurance of palaces of Are.
The grounds themselves about the
group of exposition buildings have a
few but not numerous electrical effects.
The facade of the Main building is
beautifully illuminated. The arches
below the great columns are outlined
by CO Incandescent lamps and the pedi
ment above them, which holds a rep
resentation of Commerce, 30 feet long
and 10 feot high, is illuminated by
more thnn 100 lamps, bringing out on
the darkest night all of the beautiful
effects of that ornamentation. High
above this tho quadraga, 16 feot high
to the top of the surmounting figure
of Victory, balanced on either side by
groups 10 feot high representing Trans
portation and Nnvigution, is shown in
bold relief by another arrangement of
The grand Esplanade in front of the
entrance Is illuminated by a system of
gas lamps In large and beautiful
groups, but no electrical light appears
beyond the line of tho comics of the
various buildings which skirt the side
walk of the Esplanade Itself. But the
faces of the buildings themselves pre
sent a very pretty effect from the nu
merous varied arid fantastic shapes,
Into which designs have beon made by
the use of small und many colored in
candescent eloctric lamps.
The power for all these electrical Il
luminations is furniBhed by local com
panies and by the exposition's own
plant, as has beau noted.
DR. TUPPER'S UNIQUE PRAYER.
An Incident of tho Exposition Open
ing Which SiirprUcd the Vast Audi
ence In the Auditorium.
Philadelphia, Sept. 19. The prayer
offered up by Rev. Dr. Tiipper at the
Inaugural ceremonies was unique in
Its brevity, and when he had com
pleted the single sentence of the in
vocation and retired the audience was
somewhat uncertain as to whether that
was all of It. Tho pruyer complete was
"Lord! wo ask Thee to let Thy face
shine upon this glorious day. Amen."
This has only been surpassed In
brevity by the prayer of the late Ly
man Beecher at a Boston dinner, when
he invoked the Divine blessing in the
following laconic words: "Lord, bless
the victuals," and sat down. But Mr.
Beecher had been compelled to wait a
long time for the beginning of the re
past. Dr. Tuppor did not have this
Farm Machinery Kx'.il nltlon.
Philadelphia, Sept. 19. There s.iems
to be an especial effort made at the
National Export Exposition to show
the perfection of the manufacture in
the United States of agricultural im
plements. There is a large building,
second in size to the main building,
which is devoted to such exhibits, and
a more important collection than that
which has been arranged for iu this
department could not well be imagin
ed. It comprises not only the blij
things which the farmer uses, but the
very small things us well, and shows
not merely implements for use on the
small farms, but upon the vast wheat
fields of the far west and tho great
corn belts of the country. The dis
play goes even farther than this. It
has as a companion exhibit a display
of furniture generally, which includes
a special selection of articles suitable
to farm uses and such bb Is In use
among farmers. This relutes not to
