thankful if some of our newspapers
would have their reporter take a
horse and wagon and drive out from
Elm street to Thirt v -eight h street
and then invite everv alderman to
follow him the next da v. We know
then the street would be put in such
a condition that a person's life would
not be in danger by using said ave
nue. There has been in the past
three weeks only eight horses sunk
lown in said street so that thev had
to be dug out. and afterwards lifted
out by the neighbors. Anyone liv

mcnt is to extremes would do us a
great favor bv taking a $200 horse

The greatest benefit for the city is.
that the tax collector does not have
to go from house to house, or else
the city could not collect any taxes on

where a man could possibly get up

The Chicago Fir.
The near approach of the World's
Fair awakens increased interest in
Chicago and her wonderful history.
Todav Chicago is prohablv the finest
city in the world architecturally, and
all practically built within twenty
vears. 1 lie most tunning ami won
derful chapter in the city's history is
ihe one telling ot the great lire ana
the subsequent rebuilding. It reads
like a tale from Fairy Land. The
new and magnificent Cylorama of the
Chicago lire just opened in that city
shows in a most surprising manner
the city during the great fire, with
its thousands , of acres of red-hot
ruins, thousands more of a surging
sea of flame, and countless thousands
of panic-stricken jieople fleeing for
their lives, is the most grand awe
inspiring, an realistic scene ever pro
duced by man. The whole effect is
greatly intensified by the introduc
tion of novel mechanical and electri
cal devices, making the whole situa
tion seem like reality. This
remarkable exhibition is located up
on Michigan avenue near Madison
street, and will remain as a promi
nent attraction during the World's
fair. Our readers should mak,e a
note of this great work and not fail
to visit it.
