OUR EXPOSITION LETTER.
The past month was not a financial
success for the Exhibition ; but with
.the present favorable weather the soc- j
jOnd month will prove profitable. j
; While a little work is still going on
In some departments , "the Exposition
js now complete and ready lor visitors - !
tors , " is the universal remark. i
MAINE. J. 13. Ham , commissioner , i
and W. F. Blanding , state commission
er , make it very pleasant for visitors
to their interesting department , which
is near the Government - space on the
northeast. Some forty-five varieties of
forest timber are seen , from which
many useful articles are manufactur
ed. In ship building , Maine is ahead
of any other state , models and speci
mens of the various kinds of boats are
exhibited together with their equip
ments. Shingles of pine and cedar ,
measuring twenty inches wide , boxes
for iish and canned goods , with pop
Jar chips , which are reduced to pulj
and made into paper , are here seen
Specimens of match wood , for whicl
one company cut up a million feet p :
lumber , in this business alone , are hero
shown. Fruit boxes are manufactur
ed in Maine and Chipped to almost
every country for fruit packing. Slate
plumbago ; granite and minerals are
exhibited. An attractive object is a
model lime kiln of modern structure ,
very superior to the old style for
burning limestone. Here is a very
tasty display of taxidermy , of the ani
mals and birds of this country. Prob
ably the finest plushes for upholster
ing to be had anywhere are manufac
tured at Sanford by the Goodall Man
ufacturing company. Paper and cord
age is a specialty in manufacturing.
It is said Maine , which now produces
three-fifths of the sardines consumed
n this country , by its superior goods ,
: ias. driven .all foreign competition
iway. A ship carpenter sends a mod-
1 of a full , rigged ship which occu-
lied1 300 days in making ; it is val
ued at § 1,500.
IDAHO TEKKITOKY. Idaho , since
early days of mining stampedes ,
not enjoyed the reputation of be-
> iii a much bettor condition than
srate-iof Nevada , which has grad
ually decreased in population since its
admission as a state. But a small
space was assigned the commissioner ,
C'ol. G. A. Stroupe , to represent the
territory , but be has , in the most hap
py manner possible , filled it with glit
tering specimpns from a hundred rich
mines , with grains of unexcelled beau
ty , with curious marvels and a wealth
of furs , paintings of its grand scenery ,
and splendid specimens of fruit.
Among his specimens of minerals
particularly noted lor beauty and ex
cellence , are quartz from the Wood
River and Salmon River district , pla
cer and quartz specimens from the
Uouoerd'-Alone camp which last year
caused the greatest stampede in the
late' record of mining excitements.
The commissioner says his Territory
has been but slightly prospected , and
he doubts not if an exposition is held
in the next ten years ho will be able
to represent the richest mined of Amer
ica with Idaho quartz.
WISCONSIN : It is well known that
this state makes a specialty of cheese
and butter , and claims to show the
largest and finest variety at the Ex
position. . While only a few samples
are within the space in the Main build
ing , three towers made of cheeses are
prominently exhibited , one composed
of prai.'ge bhaped and pine apple is a
beauty. Shoboyan county was in the
Egerton is said tobo one of the larg
est markets for the sale of leaf tobac
co in the United States. Wisconsin
took the premium on ono hundred va
rieties ot apples against seven com
petitors. In honey no state can ex-
cell this in quality , while it is a gen
eral industry by many and engaged
in by nearly every fanner. Wheat ,
oats , corn , hay , vegatables and garden
seeds , are displayed in glass cases.
Thirty new varieties of corn in ears
and shelled are displayed. Beaver
Dam sends a fine lot of leathers , manu
factured cloths and cassimers , which
compare favorably with eastern fac
tories. Printing and stationery is well
represented. Woman's work is ar
tistic and beautiful , and occupies a
prominent place in the state depart
ment. Miss Bodker , of Beloit , has
in this display one of the finest dis
plays of needle work enclosed in a
gilt frame ever exhibited , and can on
ly be seen to be appreciated. Hun
dreds of people are collected around
it daily. Mrs. Ely , the artist , has spec
imens of work showing sketches of
scenery and houses in Florida , nota
bly the winter residence of Mrs.
Alexander Mitchell , wife of the great
failroad millionaire of the Chicago ,
Milwaukee & St. Paul systems. Mil-
