WORLD'S FAIR WONDERS.
A Chaperon's Experience at the Columbian
Chicago, June 14 Sights to the
sightseer greatly diversify them.
selves, uur eyes are not all attuned
to the same key, nor do we ever see
all we gaze upon. The marvelous
magical city proclaims more won
ders than were ever pondered over
in fairy tales, and it has bidden to
its feast more inspiring silent orators
than the ancients could have ever
drawn- together, numbering their
seven long worshiped heroes as their
imperial guests. The duties of a
chaperon are marvelous as well as
the sights of the sightseers. General
knowledge of the grounds can be
gained during a day if properly di
rected by one well acquainted with
the park, then further tramping
may be done with confidence by any
Oulding a Party.
Monday, June 5, called out my
every day old shoes and patience.
The party I was to have the honor to
guide, guard and answer questions
given at 40 knots a minute, was com
posed of Mr. and Mrs. Walter D.
Piatt and Mr. and Mrs. John Lewis,
of Iowa. The children were not to
attend till the fond parents looked
the scene over to know what could
be omitted with due respect to their
lives, when they acted as chaperons.
My verdict is that the parents should
have much patience with their hope
fuls. After deciding which turnstile
should have the extreme honor of
checking us through we were soon
inside and alive to the fact that one
day only contained 24 hours and part
of that time we would be ordered home
and to bed. So the four, after many
guiding remarks on their part, con
cluded to follow the guide. As they
were all from lowa ana this their
first call on the fair since its open
ing, they thought best to take pas
sing stares at all the state buildings
from Sixtieth street entrance to the
Iowa building. Of course that was
the first point of attack and after
registering' we broke loose again.
Admonishing them "iot to appear
too awkward that those near us
might not detect their Iowa manners
as Illinois contained Chicago, the
hub of culture and civilization, and
anyone living in the suburbs of Illi
nois was as foreign as the Jerscyites;
they moved on in a more stately j
manner, although there was lire in
their eyes. Many Chicago people
seldom see the lake not living near
it so my nerves were not shocked at
their prolonged gaze on its beautiful
varied tints during that morning.
We now reached the war ship. Illi
nois, which was anchored securelv at
the harbor of the white city which it
guards. The Illinois is a perfect rep
resentation of a war vessel, com
pletely equipped full length, made
doulily secure by being built of brick
and mortar. It contains many ex
hibits of importance, among them
?rfeet models of all the great naval
vessels. Large guns of all kinds
were swung in place. Evervthing
needed for war was in its iironer
place some shams, but mostly the
genuine article. As officers and at
tendants live on board we spied cul
inary implements, big range, also ice
manufacturing machine which was
forming slabs of ice, the only re
freshments offered us. Of course
questions were repeatedly asked con
cerning the speed of his brick boat.
It certainly was deceptive. I re
marked that I could not see that it
was built of brick, and the officer
said, "We did not intend that you
should." lie seemed to enjoy the
joke. The ship is 350 feet long and
every part in -good proportion. You
need not reach this point till 10:30 if
you want to visit the inside wonders.
There were two women and a man
sitting crowded on the end of the
gang plank in order to be first on
board. They were as immovable as
figures on the Peristile.
The dedication of this vessel took
place last Saturday evening, when it
was illuminated inside and out till
it was the diamond setting of the
fair grounds. As this was my first
visit on board, I modestly let the
Iowa tourists ask the questions that
I might learn where the laugh came
Meeting Hock Inlanders.
We continued our stroll and soon
ran against some sightseers that we
recognized to be from Kock Island,
and as that is a part of Illinois, they
had a knowing look and seemed
quie at home. The proved to be

ter with their wjve's. They chatted
pleasantly for awhile and took a
stroll with us never reminding the
Iowa people that they di.l not live in
Illinois. 1 here were many sights
that acted as lode stones to my party,
and one was the fish hatching in the
government building. ' The fish
sparon was placed in glass jar in
which water passed in and out
through glass tubes. The lifeless
spawn to the shapely nines of
fish were exhibited on long tables as
the fish burst from their tiny bubble
shells they floated to the top and
were rapidly drawn into the tube by
the outward moving water and
thrown into a much larger glass jar
where they still became more lish
like. This was quite a study and
mv party stuck to it till two men be
gan questioning them, and Walter
Flatt found himself besiegea on an
sides by the crowd who stopped to
listen. One man thanked him, re
marking that he had a very interest
ing exhi&t. The gazers thought he
had a special fish for the market, or
else a patent breeding jar he was
booming and expected to be pre
sented with samples boiled'.
A Variety of Sight.
An exhibit of pheasants kept
our attention, and as we stood ob
serving them, making simple sketches
we were enlightened by a woman ex
claiming: Why them's peasants."
One of the birds had a great variety
of colors and a tail three feet long.
We strolled along passing the con
vent of La Rabida, then to the Indian
school from Mexico. The Indians,
young men and women, tare still pur
suing their studies and hold public
meetings each day. showing their
acuity in various branches. They
were singing songs, the samje heard
in our schools and public places; also
some were engaged in needle work,
others in an arithmetic class. They
wer: intelligent looking, dressed in
uniforms.which were dark red dresses
for the girls and dark blue suits with
red trimmings on the boys. The
teacher said they were good faithful
students and verv desirous of excell
ing. They have become so infatuated
with the World's fair that theyi ask
not be taken back to Mexico." My
friends now showed great longing to
see implements of war and there was
a demand for the Krupp gun exhibit.
On reaching the pavilion, which is
situated on the water's edge near ag
ricultural hall, we entered the large
doorway and stood before a front of
16 guns. The middle one is the not
ed thunderer, which is appropriately
named. The attendant answered
pleasantly all questions asked. This
gun has a barrel 46 feet long, with
greatest width, 10 feet. One shell
weighs 2,200 pounds. It takes 15
men to swing the barrel around and
two men to raise and lower it. This
is all done with machinery support
ing the gun. It was made in 1886
and has been fired with 16 rounds.
The remark that we should not like
to be struck with its shell brought
the reply, "You would not care, "for
you would never know it." This dis
plav of gims is the grandest ever
made, and Ilerr Krupp has spent $1,-
500,000 in carrying out his plans.
There are manv colossal things on
exhibition ami one that amused our
crowd was the pavilion with a statue
of (iermania in chocolate. It took
30,000 pounds to make the pavilion,
while the statue was hewn out of a
solid block of chocolate weighing 2,
960 pounds. One thought it was
wasting the goods while another, not
liking the beverage, said he was glad
to see a good use made of the stuff.
This did not remind one of chocolate
and the work showed artistic abilitv
as much as the butter sleeping Iolan
the, made by a woman and exhibited
at the Centennial in Philadelphia.
Since this tramp I bad the satisfae
tion of seeing the Infanta and Prince
An'toine. She looked as sweet and
charming as a school girl tripping
up the steps of t he Women's building
gaily as you please. The prince
walked more stately following after
her. She afterward threw off all
restraint and wandered as she pleased
remaining to see hc-r face lit up in
fireworks in the evening. That day
was one of the greatest in numbers.
Kach day turns up new sights and
ceremonies, and no one day seems
complete. The whole can never be
told, so come and see for yourselves.
During the World's fair I hope to
meet many of my friends from Rock
Island. Any letters of enquiry shall
be answered with pleasure.
