l:v en the Iuffalonian cannot coompre
bend tile exquistite charma ter of the
great Exposition he Is building. Is it
any wonder, then, that the distant na.
tive still asks what It is to be,? Indeed
it is to lie everything that is graceful,
harmonious and beautiful. Form and
color will join their wonderful forces
to please the eye and delight the sense.

to express the character of the coin.

tended to be in every way an artistic
triumph. From the very beginning
it has been the purpose of those who
have been Intrusted with the making
of this Exposition to present to the
world the most artistic creation ever
conceived for a like purpose. The ar.
rangement of the buildings, the style
of architecture, the decorative work,
the embellishment of the grounds and
the electrical illumination are some of
the features that will stand out proml
nently in the Exposition picture. There
are 33 acres in the courts around
which stand the principal Exposition
buildings. While the whole Exposi
tlon plot of 850 acseres will be as beauti
ful as nature, with the artistic help ol
man. can make It, the several courts
-will be the particular center for formal
decorative work. The courts are ar
ranged in the form of a cros, the
north and south courts bearing the
,aWmes of Court of Fountals, Plasa,
Fore Court and Approach and being
,nearly 8.000 feet In extreme length.
The Transverse Court is known as the
-- 4 inande and Is 1.700 feet trom east
to we. Two subordinate courts open
lao th'\ spl. ade. known as the
wGOret of Ls and Court of Cypresses.
' he eomb4 area of these courts is

The style of architeeture Is what Is
descrlbed as a free adaptation of the
I8pa.s renalssance. It Is particularly
appropriate for the purposes of an
Bxpoeltlon since it gives opportunity
for the employment of many architec
tural features of a testive character.
Tbhus the visitor may see many lofty
towers and lanterns, graceful domes
and minarets, airy pavilions and other
decorative work 'that will produce a
sky line free from any suggestions of
monotony or severity.
The Electrte Tower, standing tn a
broad pool between the Court of Poun
•tains and the Plaza, Is tbe the center
piece for electrical llumination. This
tower Is 8 feet square and 875 feet
high, with d.rcular wings curving fro
the oest and west sides to the south
ward and and rlng a semicircular space
in w ieh are to be many beumtiful
fountain features. From the southern
face of the Tower a cascade will gush
from a nlebe, 70 feet from the ground,
and fall upon a terraced bass. At night

and stately canal which will surround

southern reaches of thi canal are
I artliicial bodies of water known as the
i Mirror Lakes, fromt which lagoons ex
tend In several directions, thickly set
with aquatic plants of rare species.
In addition to the sunken gardens
antd other floral features of the courts
will be the horticultural exhibits In the

will consist of several aer,,s of beds of
the tillest productions of the best nutrs

will be very keen and the lover of flow

S' It has been a great surprise to many ;
people to learn that Dr. Conan Doyle is
San .Alabrsk man, born and bred. His a
parenut were of Irish descent, and his t
1o father was the youngest of four sons, all e
ty of whom distinguished themselves. The c
e- eldest was James Doyle, the historian, 1
r. who wrote the "Chronicles of angland." .
ty The second was Henry Doyle, C. B.. the I1
- bead of the National Gallery in Dublin.
t The third was the famous Richard h,071e
of Peach. and the fourth, the *ovelist's L

think it hI,-autiful. The fol.is float out

and they borrow luster from the bro

along the shore. The waists are ni1ade
of one kind of plaiting and the skirt
of another, so the dress Is even prettier.

r1- and around the bottom is a wide band
r- of cream lace insertion laid on flat, and
ar lthe design of the figure ili the ceinter -
be of the lace is painted. This is an in
.n novationi and a very effective one. The

e, there are also some of them made of

1- have embroidery. The belts to these
are all In one piece with the rest, and
the ends spread out widely. These are .
more appropriate for bra. icr costumes, it
yet they are seenu on the light textures. 1
Some of the accordlon plaited dress
