Tbe October number of Scribner's
Mgzne begins a group of articles on
"The World's Fair at Chicago." with a
picturesque description by H. C. Bunner
of "The Making of the White City." Mr.
Bunner loo'.. with appreciation and sur
prise on the wonderful transformation
wbich a year ban made in tbe waste and
desolate sandy plain which has now be
come tbe "site of such a group of build
ings as has never I -e fore been assembled
fur such a purpose, on such a scale,
within such a time, and in such
conditions." A series of illustra
tions by W. T. Smedley illustrate
this striking transformation. Franklin
MacVeBRb. one of the best-known mtr
chants of Cliicniro. will write on "Chica
go' Prt in the Fair" (November number)
and Frank D. Millet, who has been asso
ciated with so many World's Fair pro
jects, will write of "Tbe Decoration of
the World's Fair" (December). Mr. Mil
let's recent appointment as chief in charge
of the decorations will enable him to
write on this subject ss on one else could.
This group of preti winery articles on
The World's Fair" will, it is believed,
give the general reader an adequate idea
of tbe immense undertaking wfiich is be
ing so rapidly and artistically curled out.

Measureless lands Columbus gave and rivers through zones that roll.
But his rarest, noblest bouuty was a Kew World for the Soul!
For he sailed from the Part with its stifling walls, to the Future's opea sky.
And the ghosts cf gloom and fear were laid as the breath of heaven went by;
And the pedant's pride and the lordlicg'a scorn were lost, in that vital air.
As fogs are lost when sna and wind sweep ocean blue and bare;
And Freedom and larger Knowledge dawned clear, the sky to span.
The birthright, not of priest or king, but of every child of man!
Uplift the New World s Banner to greet the exultant sun!
Let its rosy gleams still follow hL be.tms as svr-.ft to west they run.

For law disdaining license: for righteousness and peace:

But the dawn will sooner forget the east, the tides thei ebb and Cow,
Than you forget our radiant Flag and its matchless gifts forego!

Practical Sugg-ratlona on the Proper Ob
erruc of the Anniversary.
CTOBER 21 will
be a gala day
from one end to
the other of the
and it is but prop
er that it should
lie hj, for ia it not
Col um Ijus Day,
and will it not
commemorate the discovery of a world
which in the comparatively short time
of four centuries has emerged from the
blackness of the forest and the ignor
ance of the savage into the blazing sun
of prosperity and the noontide of intelli
gence? Now that the official programme for
the uniform popular celebration of Co
lumbus Day has been published, the
question of the participation by this
community in the national exercises be
comes a live issue.
It goes without saying that the people
of this locality will not be backward in
evidencing their patriotism by an appro
priate celebration of the memorable
day, and a few suggestions as to the
best method of executing this com
mendable design may not be amiss at
In the first place, it should be borne in
mind that it is intended that the school
children should be the principal partici- ,'
pants in tbe exercises. The pupils are
to be at their places in school at 9
o'clock as usual. It is desirable that
business be entirely susjiended so that
the relatives of the pupils may also
be present. Printed programmes should
be provided when possible, and the ex
ercises will of course be subject to the
limitations of the scholars, but every- j
thing which may be done should tend .
to the central ideas of Columbus' j
achievement and the remarkable prog- (
ress of the country under the impetus of
education. Appropriate patriotic deco- i
rations are necessary, and allegorical ,
tableaux will add greatly to the effect- :
iveness and enjoyment of the exercises, j
Music is also desirable. ,
In the afternoon comes the citizens'
celebration, but, as in the morning ex
ercises, the school children should take
the most prominent part. Of course in
the country districts this will not be the :
case, and the afternoon should be de-
voted to games for the young people and .
social gatherings for their elders, though j
every house should be decorated witn
the national colors. In the towns the
afternoon should be devoted to some sort
of formal celebration, in which all of
the civic and military organizations
should be invited to participate.
A- review of school children after ther
nave reached the reviewing s'tand 'and
saluted the flag will add much to the
"life and color" of the 6cene. A mass
meeting of the citizens should follow
during the day, when the best orators
of the locality, ami the most elo
quent of the declaimers among the
children say one from each school
might deliver addresses appropriate to
the occasion. The topics of these
speeches will readily enggest them
selves, but it must be borne in mind
that anything relating to Columbus will
be more interesting than anything else
on such an occasion. The flag salute,
the ode and the patriotic songs should
be executed by the children without a
hitch, and fur this reason a great deal
of preliminary work will have to be
done by them.
Upon the school teachers will devolve
the greatest jiortion of this labor. Each
teacher should at once, if it has not al
ready lieen done, present the matter of
the celebration of Columbus Day to
his pupils, and it should be laid before
the young people in such a manner that
each will be anxious to contribute as
much as possible to the success of the
affair. Enthusiasm is what is wanted
and needed, for without it failure must
result. Let each teacher select commit
tees on reception, on decorations, on ex
ercises, on printing, on newspapers, on
arrangements and on finance. The
principal must be actually if not nom
inally the directing spirit of each com
mittee. At the morning exercises at the schools
the veterans should have charge of tbe
flag and should also act as guards of
honor o the schools on the march to the
revicv. i:ig stand. The peculiar appropri
ateness of the veterans being the special
patrons of the school celebration is ap
parent. Money and the active co-operation
of the citizens at large are absolute
ly necessary to the snccess of the cele
Jtralion, and these should and probably
will be promptly forthcoming.
Only the general outlines of exercises
suggested in the official programme are
here given. These may be enlarged or
contracted to conform to the wishes and
possibilities of the celebrants.

What about Mrs. Col-imbus? She
ought to figure somehow in 1 lie celebra
tion, although there is no picture of her
extant. She was a Miss Palestrello, of
Lisbon, and became the wife of Colum
bus in 1470. ' Her father was a navigator, i
and from old Palestrello's charts Colum
bus got his first ideas about a western
passage to the Indies.

Things Worth Remembering.
When ou feel kind of goneness abut
the stomach it is a sign that your food
d'-ies rot sit well, anrt that you are about
to have a fit of indigestion.
When you beein to feel nervous and
are unable to sit still comforably; when
your clothes suddenly seem 'O lose their
ht and become too tight in places, the fit
of indigestion is surely upon you.
When this fit of indigestion is repeated
from day to day it finally resolves itself
Remember that three to 1U or Bran
dreth's Pills will cure the worst case cf
indigestion or dyspepsia, or both, and
iht a regular course of tbem, sty two
every night for a week or 10 days, will
act as a preventive or either compiaint.
