it knowledge is to be your guide in the
pathway of life, is it not worth your while
to secure the greatest, the best source of
human knowledge extant, when that source
is, by American enterprise, placed within
your reach? In the ENCYCLOPEDIA
BRITAXNICA the child will find matter to
interest his little mind and give him food
for thought along the line of his natural
bent; the youth will find life stories and
professional and mechanical information to
enable him wisely to choose his life work,
and the adult will have his mind broadened,
his intellect quickened and his information
extended to such a degree by it that he will
be enabled to take advantage of opportu
nities that he otherwise would not see.
Thus it is a guide board for all. The En

was master of ceremonies and there was a
lare crowd in attendance. Among those
present were Aucustin Daly's company,
including Miss Keii.tii herself, so she had
the opportunity to see how she looked in
Sunday Closing in the Courts.
And speaking of justice very naturally
leads to the topic that is uppermost now
regarding World's fair matters, for "jus
tice" just now has the decision of the great
Sunday opening question. The first
whack at the issue was had in Judge
Stein's conrt and the scales of the blind
goddess were the heaviest on the side of
Sunday opening in the preliminary hear
ing. The case was tha of C. V. Cling
man as a stockholder vs. the World's fair
directors, and was an application for an
injunction to restrain the directors from
closing the gates on Sunday, the injunc
tion asked for being preliminary. The
bill also includes the South park commis
sioners. nth of the Judge'sTiecislon.
The application was made both as stock
holder and taxpayer and Jndge Stein de
cided that as a mere stockholder the appli
cant could not maintain his claim
in the absence of fraud, breach of trust
or ultra vires, neither of which is alleged.
But a a taxpayer he had rights
under the act of the legislature declaring
that the park was to be held as a public
park free to all persons forever. The judge
held that congress has not sole jurisdiction
in the matter in hand, but if ic had con
gress had enacted that "nothing in this act
April 23, 1S00, shall be construed to over
ride the laws of any state." Neither had
congress enacted a law requiring the fair
to be closed on Sunday3.it ka.w it hai
not that power.
The Noh of the Controversy.
The judge then goes to the nub of the
matter, and says that what congress did do
was to cive the fair ?2,!h,wio on tne conur
tion that the fair be closed on Sunday
congress gave a certain sum of money pro
vided the fair directory would do a certain
thing. But on March 3, 1M3, congress took
one-fifth of the money previously given
and applied it to another use than that
which was the purpose of the first appro
priation. This, the court says, was a viola'
tion of the contract. It was true that the
directory had used part of the money, but
there was no proof that any had been used
subsentient to March H. JS'.. and that act
of congress relieved tne directory irom its
obligation provided it returned the, money
First blood is for the "openers."
Consistency, Thou Art a Jewel.
It is somewhat instructive to read the
talk of the religious people on this subject-
At the regular weekly meeting of Chi
cago clercvmen Dr. Blanchard demanded
a boycott of the lair as a response io me
ooen cates Sunday. DUt ne nau no sooner
sDoken than another minister got the floor
and announced the fact that all day Sun-
dav the Hotel Kndeavor. a Christian tn-
deavor society building, was a workshop

orers have tieen very aggressive as Sunday
closers. One preacher scored a religious
editor for attending the meeting of the re
ligious press congress on Sunday.
SOME LAW FOR SABBATARIANS,
What, the Commandment Sys A Cana
dian Divine's Remarks.
In discussing this question a good many
things are coaling up that will probably
make the row of the Sabbatarians a hard
one to hoe from an argumentative stand
point. One controversalist quoted the
law as banned down from Sinai. How
many know it t This is how it reads:
"Kemember the Sabbath day to keep it

That is it nearly if not quite verbatim, ex- :
eluding the cast clause.
"Sabbat ari'uism," remarked this man.
"may be a j-ood thing, but what are you
going to uo with tne commauament -o
manner of work;' 'thou nor thy son, nor
thy daughter, nor thy mau servant, nor
they maid servant, nor thy cattle.' " It is
evident that there is a cog out somewhere.
For strict and consistent obsei vance of the
commandment would make some remark
able changes in the methods and activities
of this latter end of the nineteenth cen
tury. The Presbyterian assembly at
Washington discussed a proposition 10

WORLD'S FAIR MISCELLANY,
The tiathcring of Medical Men and M oni
on At the Fair tirounds.
Three me'dical congresses are in session
here now the Kclectic. Homeopathic and
the Medico-Climatology. The "old school"
men may come together during the sum
mer, but they have an international con
gress at Home to attend wlncn was ar
ranged for previous to this series of con
gresses and their big guns are engagei for
that event. Medico-Climatology met at
night in Columbus hall and Homeopathy
in Washington hall, the business being
principally welcomes and responses. This
morning thy were all at work discussing
the questions broHght forward. The sub
jects arranged for this congress cover tne
whole range of medical and surgical prac
nud the doctors who are to read papers
anil take part in their discussion are
among the leaders of the school and will
make th congress notable.
There were 37,093 paid admissions to the
World's fair. The principal new attraction
was the opening of the French exhibit in
the Liberal Arts building. It is a splendid
one. In the government room is a magnifi
cent collection of tapestry and pottery.
'The Daughter of the Fairies," a Gobelin
tapestry valued at 1,000,000 francs, hangs
from one of the walls. The execution of
this masterpiece occupied twelve years.
On a platform in the middle of the main
room stands a small, peculiar pavilion,
which will contain the costliest exhibit in
the whole exiiosition. Vever, of Pans, has
$3,000,000 worth',of jewels, mostly diamonds,
on one side, and on the other Boucheron,
of Paris, will very soon have a similar ex
hibit in the space, the vale of whicn Is
placed at 9,000.000.

Chicago. May 30. Many officers and em
ployes of the Illinois Central road having
expressed a desire to invest their savings in
the stock of the corporation, the directors
have arranged so that an employe may buy
stock at the market price, to be fixed when
application is made, the purchaser to pay
for his shares in sums of $5or multiples
thereof. When an employe shall have paid
enough to entitle him to a share the certifi
cate is issued in his name. Interest is al
llowed on payments, and if at any time the
employe retires from the service of the com
pany, or wishes to withdraw his money, he
has only to notify the head of his depart
ment and his payments with interest will
Kansas Ileasons for-Mortgage.
Topkk A, May tlO. The state census bul

Kansas shows a variety of novel reasons
for borrowing money. A Decatnr county
man mortgaged his premises "mostly for

In Lincoln county a man assumed; a
mortgage to pay his "wife's debts." An
other to pay 'undesirable debts of a son-in-law."
Another to buy a piano, another
