A GREAT EXPOSITION
PAN-AMERICAN WILL USHER IN A NEW
AND GREAT ERA.

' Pvblle Event ot tbe Twentieth Ceo
tnry - Prourreaa In tbe Western
Hemisphere Dnrlnic n Centnrjr to
Tbe achievements of tbe past century
bare been magnificent. Tbe march of
progress has been swift, and the tri
umphs of civilization bare been mani
fold. The age of enlightenment is In
deed here. Mankind has progressed in
the culture of the finer side of exist
ence and has turned to its uses the.
mysterious forces of the elements in a
manner undreamed of but a few centu
Yet who can foretell what the Twen
tieth century has to unfold? Who
would dare to predict what the
achievements of another hundred years
may be? Standing on the threshold of
this era, we look into tbe past, and In
the grand picture of progress to bo pre
sented In the beautiful buildings and
NORTHWEST VIEW FROM
comprehensive exhibits of tlii Tan-
American Exposition we see a record
In graphic form of what mankind has
accomplished upon this hemisphere
during the 100 years now completed
With vision sharpened we look for
ward with prophetic eye into the mys
teries of the future and get. In Imagi
nation at least, a glimpse -of what tbe
next century is to bring forth. .
Can it be possible that the Twentieth
century will see an advance in material
and intellectual things as great rela
tively to that of other centuries as the
Nineteenth century has witnessed? It
scarcely, seems within the bounds of
possibility, and yet who can say wheth;
er even more wonderful discoveries
and even more valuable applications of
our present knowledge than the past
cantury has given us do not await us in
the one now just begun? Tbe Nine
teenth century saw the revolution in
methods of travel on land and sea
caused by tbe invention of the steam
engine; It saw the Invention of the tele
graph and telephone and electric light;
It witnessed the application of electric
power to urban transportation methods
and to the operation of the wheels of
indnstry generally; It produced great
Improvements in the fields of medicine
and surgery and of education; it gave
us Inventions In the way of machinery
which have completely revolutionized
Industry and shortened the hours of
labor for the manual workers of the
civilized world and particularly of this
hemisphere. To go on and enumerate
In detail the features of Nineteenth
century progress would require more
epace than is at my command. But It
will not do to forget that great as this
progress has been and proud as we
have a right to be of it there are tre
mendous problems of a social and po
litical character yet to be solved. Their
settlement during the next century will
do much to alleviate the misery yet ex
isting in the world and render happier
the millions who will be born, live and
die during tbe next hundred years. It
should not be forgotten that many"
branches of science are yet in their In
fancy. We have only begun to under
stand the mysterious force of electrici
ty, and we have not yet succeeded In
navigating the air. There are yet many
worlds to be conquered, by the daring,
the Inventive and tbe pioneers of hu
man progress In the forthcoming cen
That the pulse of mankind will be
quickened by the great Exposition of
all tbe Americas so soon to be held
there Is no room for doubt.
No more appropriate time could be
chosen for such an Exposition upon the
American continent. No more appro
priate place thaq Buffalo and the KI
agara frontier could be selected, for
It Is at this spot, where the cataract of
Niagara bas been harnessed and sci
ence and industry have combined to
concentrate all tbe energies and activi
ties characteristic of the time, that tbe
most' fitting assemblage can be made
of tbe things which portray most ef
fectively this progress.
Never before In the history of expo
sitions la either the New World or the
Old has such remarkable work of a

tbe confidence existing in tbe ability
of the management to open the gates
on May 1 upon a completed and per
fectly embellished creation is Justified.
The financial prospects of the Expo
sition are all that could be desired
The advertising it has received is al
ready bringing forth fruit, and an un

as certain as anything can be which
belongs to the future.
Seen from the distance of three-

A PITHY STATEMENT.
VV. H. Marshall Gives an Apt
vs on vinoi worm
This is the Preparation That is UciDg
Much Talked About.
A reporter asked W. H. Marshall,
proprietor Harper house pharmacy.
the same question that hundreds have
asked him in the last few days: "Just
tell me precisely,- please, why Vinol
is better than cod liver oil?"'
Mr. Marshall replied in his genial
way. You have given me a rather
diQicult task. I can explain to you
in a few minutes the advantages of
v inoi, out to do it In a half dozen
words would hardly be possible. Per
haps I can illustrate its value, how-
ever. In a brief - manner. Suppose
you had never seen a hen's ess. A
man who knew of them should tell
you to eat three every day. I do not
say that you would, mind you, but
x am inclined to believe at tbe start
you would make an heroio enort to
get away with the whole thing, shell
and all. The meat of the eez would
be what you needed, the shell rather
superfluous. In fact, as a'matter of
nourishment, not quite the thing for
-there you are with cod liver oil.
In it you have a medicine, or rather
in tne liver of a live cod there is a
medicine known to be valuable for
certain forms of wasting disease, a
great reconstructor. Doctors have
administered it for years. They were
like the man who had v never seen an
egg before. They gave it to their
patients just as they found it, shell
and all. . Yes, that is exactly it. The
grease was useless and as bad for the
stomach, almost, asjwould have been
the shell of the egg. The kernel, or
the meat of the remedy, the vital
principles that they were after, were
contained in it. bcience has stepped
in and done exactly what the man
with the egg might have done found
a way to separate the healthful In
terior from the worthless husk.
"Now we have the active medical
principles of the cod's liver. We have
thrown away the useless encum
brances that formerly encloaked it,
namely, the objectionable fat. We
have taken this extract, placed it in
a delicious table wine, and there you
are. 1 atients who have needed cod
liver oil and could not take it have no
trouble in taking Vmol. Why, you
would enjoy drinking it yourself, so
pleasant is it, if I did not tell you it
was anything but a mud table
wine. If you needed it, however,
for a medicine, you would soon
find it to be something different. The
medicinal properties of the cod's liver
heal damage done by diseases that
are of a wasting nature, and the same
principles give strength to the weak
ened digestion - and enable the poor
sufferer's worn out stomach to digest
and obtain nutriment from every day
food. These same principles are also
active disease germ annihilators.
"Yes, I am glad to have you come
any time that you care to leam any
thing more about Vmol. It bas al
ready proved itself to be a winner."
Two AVaya ot Tellinjr It.
Once uiwn a time a king in his sleep
dreamed that all of bis teeth fell out
before him, one by one.
He summoned a soothsayer and ask
ed him to interpret the dream.
The soothsayer said, "O king, the
meaning of thy dream is that thy fam
ily and relatives shall die iq thy pres
ence, one by one, till all are gone."
Tho king was Tcry angry at that and
sent the soothsayer at once. to prison.
Then he sent for another soothsayer
and again asked for an Interpretation,
of the dream.
The soothsayer made answer, "O
king, the Interpretation of thy dream
Is that thy family and relatives shall
die, one by one, and thou thyself sbalt
outlive them all."
With this answer the king showed
approval and commanded that a pres
ent be given to the interpreter, and
that he- should be sent home with
honor. "Persian Tales" In Century.
Stood Death Off.
E. B. Munday, a lawver of Henri
etta, Texas, once fooled a grave-dig
ger. He says: "Wy brother was
very low witn malarial lever and
jaundice. I persuaded him to try
Electric Bitters, and ho was soon
much better, but continued their use
until he was wholly cured. I am
! sure electric Bitters saved his life."
This remedy expels malaria, kills dis-
I ease germs and purifies the blood;
aids digestion, regulates liver, kid-1
neys and bowels, cures constipation,
dyspepsia, nervous diseases, kidney
troubles, female complaints; gives j
perfect health, uoly oo cents at

A powerful engine cannot be run
with a weak boiler, and we can't keep
up tbe strain ox an active life with
weak stomach; neither can we stop
the human macoine to make repairs.
If the stomach cannot digest enough
food to keep the body strocg, such a
preparation as Kodol Dysppsia Cure
should be used. Il digestse what you
eat and it simply can't help but do
you good. B. II. Bieber and Hartz &
