Knowing the need and necessity of an up-to-date confectionery, ice cream parlor and light lunch establishment on Second

to make it one of the finest, most beautiful, sanitary and best equipped establishments of its kind, not alone in this city,
nor in the tri-cities, but in the MIDDLE WEST.

each mirror gives the whole premises an exceedingly rich and harmonious tone.
We make our own ice cream and ices and deliver to any part of the tri-cities. We also make our own candies fresh
daily and handle the best known candy packages in the country, such as Gansert's, Abraham's, Davidson's, Gunther's,
etc. We invite the public of the tri-cities and vicinity to attend our formal opening to morrow for inspection and ap
proval. . .

groups idealising tiie crowning success

tant sculptural works thai will bring

The statuary is being executed upon j the openin of the 110 foot archway of
a wonderful scale. In its complete the superb, Touer of Jewels, 430 feet

dians, pioneers, etc., and a great
prairie schooner as its main theme, the
whole symbolizing the march of the
Anglo-Saxon across the plains of Amer
ica to his final position on the shores
of the Pacific. Each of the groups
will be in golden tint, but without
glaring effect. These groups, inven
tions of monumental conception and
rich treatment, will replace the form
of the old Roman quadriga.
Occupying positions relatively east
and west in the center of the court
will be two free standing monuments,
the fountains of the Rising and of the
Setting Sun. The upper portion of
these fountains will be the sources of
the superb night illumination of the I
great court which, at night, will be i
transformed into a magical, mystical j
fairyland. Great globes surmounted i
by figures representing a sunrise and
sunset and typifying the Rising and
Setting Suns, will give forth at night
an incandescent glow. Columns of
thick white glass seventy feet . in
height and rising from the center of
the fountains will diffuse a soft white
light throughout the court, completely
illuminating its recesses;. At the base
of each fountain will be basins in
which rec'.i-.i'r.fc figures representing
the planets v.i'; again surmount the
globes of iiglit behind which the water
will fall in reroens.
In the center of the Court of Sun
and Stars titanic figures in horizontal
compo&itons of the four elements, Fire,
Water, Earth and Air, will be set in i
a sunken garden. These figures, capa-
ble of a roost symbolical, imaginative '
rendering, are being designed by Mr.
Robert I. Aitkin. Facing each of the
two arches in the court will be verti
cal groups of figures representing Or
der and Chaos, Eternity Rnd Change.
But perhaps the most beau'iful fea
ture of the court will be an encircling
colonnade which will screen the walls
of the surrounding building1?. Above
each of the columns, which will b?
sixty feet in height, will be a hover-
larger than the Arch oe Trlomphe atiing figure with a Jeweled head, repre-
pans, it" reet nign and ciert by an seating a scintillating star. At night
archway 90 feet in height. On the . these Etars, ornamented with quiver
east side of the Court of Sun and j ing prisms, will glimmer and sparkle

magmficent proportion, the grat fleeting the lights of masked batteries
imaginative rendering. In the lagoon
before the Palace of Fine Arts, a single
reclining colossal statue, representing
Ancient Civilization, will occupy the
western portion of the lagoon, w hile a
similar group representing Modern
Civilization will occupy the eastern
The dominating architectural fea
ture of the exposition, the four hun
dred and thirty foot Tower of Jewels,
will be decorated with much sculpture
of a purely ornamental character, as
well as the repeated figure of an ar
mored horseman. Terminating the
open colonnades on each side of the
tower gate mural fountains will b
created by two talented women; Mrs.
Harry Payne WTiitney who will design
in accord with Mr. Hastings' archi
tecture, the Fountain cf El .Dorado,
while Mrs. Edith Woodman Burroughs
will design at the opposite wing of the
colonnade the Fountain of Youth.
Parnlleling the Court of Sun and
Star on the west will be the great
west court, designed by Henry Bacon
and known as the Court of the Four
Reasons. It will be. situated between
the Agricultural and Educational
buildings. In thu court the sculpture
and painting will symbolize the benign
forces of nature; a great group rep
resenting nature will occupy a pedes
tal beneath the archv. ay at the head of
this court. Ceres, Goddess of Agricul
ture, will be the subje.ct'of a classic
Greek deslsm and groups of the Four
FeaEons, Spring, Summer, Autumn,
Winter, in plastic form, will occupy po
sitions in fountain basins placed la
the four corners of the court.
In the great east court, the Court of
Abundance, which will parallel the
Court of Sun and Stars upon the east,
the mystic significance of fire and
water will be treated by the sculptors
in a romantic style.
-Two south courts will open from
the . a in exposition group upon a.
tropical garden lying between the,'
group and the exposition fence. One.
of these will be the Court of Flowers,
to the south of the Festive Court, the
other will be the Court of Psalms to
the south of the Court of Four Sea
sons. In the Court of Flowers the
subject matter will be founded on tulea
of the Arabian Nights; this will in
spire the composition of the central,
fountain. The doorways of the court'
will be flanked by strange vlsaged-
lions and the attic studded with fig-;
ures of oriental slaves. :
For the Court of Palms the western
fairy tales will -spur the sculptor to:
new imagery, with Beauty and Beast:
as the theme for the centrol fountain.'
At the entrance of the Courts of Flow. :
erg and Palms on the southern esplan-.
ade, and in front of the gateways of
Columbus and Balboi on the sea es
planade, will be erected four huge :
