there ara throe factories that never Join

claim that thay have no dlspoaltlon to
quarrel with their help. They have
work aooogh and things ran along
emootbly with them. Pushing with the

that perlabeth doeant enjoy having hit

and how dependent on others, a alsp In

be It quick to strike back. Well, I hope
that co-operative concern will prove a

not sell at the preseut price, but wait

The recent performance of Burktleld'a
great trotting atalllon, Koblnaon D., at
ltlgbjr l'ark, I* deserving of more than
paaalnf notice when all the dream
atanoee are conaldered. 'Hila horae bad
not been campaigned tlila aeaaon and
had but little fitting for the race which
he won *o easily and bandaomaly. He
drew fourteenth position la a field of
fourteen starters. This brought him *o
far back of the wire when the word wa*
jrlven that the time given him, 1:19, In
the fir*t beat was no measure of bis
•peed In this heat a* be trotted more
than a mile on account of bis disadvan
tage of poaltlou, and came under the
wire a good two lengtha ahead of anv
competitor. In the second heat which
be won easily nuking hi* record of
3:17 3-4 he wa* neither proceed nor
urged at any part of the mile, nor wa*
the whip once held over blm. It looked
to many good judgee of apeed that he
could have made a record of 3:16 or
better In this heat had It been neoesaary
to have done *o. In the third beat
which be won In 1:18 1*4 he was never
beaded and had a long lead oomlng
down the atretcb. Previou* to this race
the fattest mile the horse had been drlv
eo this aeaaon waa 3:33, though he had
demonstrated his ability to do quarters
In SI aeconda. It waa the feeling of
every oue who witnessed his work at
Rlgby that the horae was capable of
making the mile several aeoonda faater
thau hla record of 3:17 3-4, itnd we be
lieve another aeaaon will demonatrate
thla theory. He goea perfectly amooth
and frlctlonleaa never making a break
and certainly uo one can deny that lie
haa already demou«trated that he
la one of the very best of the noted
Maine horsea, both a* a trotter and a

WORLD'S FAIR POINTS.
A ULlMltK Of TIIB "MIDWAT.H
The nam*, "Midway rialaanoe," la
not, aa a great many auppoee, a term
manufactured to be appli* d to one fea
ture of the world'* fair. It la tbe name
gIven by tbe city of Chicago to tbe
boulevard connecting Jackson Park aad
Washington Park, two of tbe chain of
parka which encompasses tbe principal
part of tbe city. Tbe Midway IMaisance
It haa been heretofore, and the Midway
1'lalaance It will continue to be, after
the Oriental and other temporary resl
denta have departed thence, and the
boulevard haa rtsuiucd Ita normal condi
tion.
For the occasion and the purposes of
the world'a fair, however, the "Midway,"
aa it U popularly called, has been con
verted Into a great side-show ground,
with shows of a rather higher order than
those which furnish an lndl»pensable
feature of county and town fairs. It
waa one of the Itaopy thoughts of the
fair management thus to separate the
commercial, uiouey-maklug features
from the fair pro|ter, aud everybody
commends the arrangement.
My far the moat Interesting claaa of
ahowa on tbe Midway are the foreign
villages. Ily paying your money aud
pausing through the gate, you nre at
once In another land. You see the
hounes or the hutaof a foreign laud, you
see the industries of that land In opera
tion aud Ita producta displayed for sale,
and you ae« genuine uatlvea aa a rule In
genuine costume. There are some ex
ceptioua to this latter statement. The
Orientals, as a rule, have become Amer
icanised aa to their footwear, aud oc
casionally you will see one who has be
come fully Americanised aa to his cloth
lug,—except his fez. He clings to Die
fes to the last extremity.
It Is also Insinuated that Hibernians,
in various foreign garbs and speaking
various klnda of "glblwrlsh," may lie
found In aeveral of the villages, but such
an insinuation may have no basis of fact.
There Is a fascination and an Interest
lug studv In thus traveling through
twenty different countries iu the space
of a mile, and some of our party made
the fair a secondary consideration, and
started out each mornlug to "do the
Midway" uutil they got tired of It and
wauted a change.
Hut by the war, one wlto la going to
take In the Mldwav thoroughly mutt
have a pocket full or change, or elae he
muat have a press pass to the fair and
have autllclent check to work U on every
gate-keeper that he want* to get by. 1
had the pass, but waa bom without the
amount of cheek that a newspaper uian
really Deed*, ao 1 probably missed cou
•Iderable that I might have eeen with
out expenae. The money which It takoa
to get iuto one of the foreign villages la
aa a rule ouly the beglnulng of aorrowa.
Onceloilde you And a native theatre,
with a characteristic performance, for
an extra admission, and of courae you
want to take that In. Alao a muaeum of
antiquities, a native temple, or Fome
nting of tliat kind—with an extra adiula
alon. Then on every aide are the native
shops, where the ''Yankee notion*" of
that country are told, and If you buy
everything you waut It will take a big
truuk to get It home. The attendanta
In many of the thop* are American*,
whether becauae they can talk Eugllth
eaaler, or becauae of their greater enter
prise, I do not know.
Doe Irlah village waa established on
the Midway, aud then, with the Irish
pro|Nsn*lty for getting Into a row, there
wa* a quarrel, and another lri*h village
waa opened. One of theae villages baa a
reproduction of Ularney Castle, with
the real, original and only Blarney atone.
For a fee of ten ceuta oue may have the
privilege of endowing himself with a pe
culiar gift of tongue by pressing itla
llpa to that atone which ao many other
llpa of all aorta and condltlona have
preased. I am deatltute of the gift of
I fab, but I prefer aome more reliable and
lyglenlc meana of aecurlng It. And
theu, I don't believe In audi promlacu
oua klaalug, anyway.
There la a Javanese village, where a
large colony of theae little people live In
their warm weather Itousea of bamboo
with roof of thatch. There was a wed
ding In thla village the day I went In—
not a atage wedding, but a real, genuine
marriage ceremonv, aa waa atteated by
the excited coudltion of the little women
uatlvea. 'l*he crowd waa ao druse 1
couldn't aee much, but I did get a
glimpse of the happy couple borne aloft
lu a palanqulu at the head of the wed
ding proce**lou, and heard a beating of
drum* and a picking of strings, Intended
to represent rnuilc, but without time,
tune or harmony. The muilc of the
Midway la very largely of the tum-tum
variety.
There la a German village, and a atreet
In Old Vienna, each of which la all Ita
name Implies; and the realism of them
la heightened by the fact that all availa
ble apace Inside them Is occupied by beer
garden*—with magnificent bands and
oreheatna, of course. There la an en
campment of Dedoulna, a Johore bunga
low, a Constantinople atreet, which U
mostly shops, and various other villages
and settlement*, with theatre* galore;
but the one that la unlveraally patronised
la Um Cairo Street.
I'm through the gate, and If you can
ahut out from your Bight the American
crowd, and from your eara the broken
KuglUh of the natlvee, you oan readily
linigtne youraclt In Cairo. The atrcet la
narrow, crooked, and without aldewalka.
U la well aupplled with ahopi, and there
la an opportunity to have your fortune
told, to vialt an Egyptian temple, Ac.
While you are taking a look at all thU,
a voice behind you crie«, "Look ouert
der vay for Ta-ra-ra-boom-de-ey." You
turn and see an Egyptian boy of some
twelve aummera leading a camel, and
admire the readlneaa with whleh the
foreigner "catchea on" to our popular
aonga; but afterward you learn that thla
particular camel haa been endowed with
the name of the aong mentioned.
The donkeya and camelaare kept buay
In the Cairo Htreet. A lady who la
ventureaome enough to mount one of
the little donkeya, renllxev, ia aoon aa be
atarta off at a brUk trot, how Inaecure la
her foundation, and In terror ahe clutchea
at the aaddle and emlta feminine acreama.
The louder ahe arreama the harder the
wicked darkey behind lara the whip on
the donkey. It'a one of their trlcka.
But the camel riding la the moat fun.
The eamel la flat upon the ground to
atart with. A "fellow and girl" mount
and aeourt themaelvee by atrapa and
atlrrupe ao that there la hardly a poeal
blllty of their falling off—* ueoeaaary
precaution. It may be aoneceaaarr to
mention that a young lady who (a to
ride a oamel ahould be neatly and ba>
coming! v attired aa to fret and anklea.
The load being la place, (he oamel riaea

to Judge for my*elf. It wasn't hard to
find, for placard* oo Um front of Um

ft great advertising cjrd. '11m place
waa filled at every performance. The
dance la defended by many who nitrrt
that la Um genuine ami ordinary itage
dance of thoae Orkutul countrfc*; but
then, aomeof thoae oountrle* are no
Eat ahakea oo morula anv war. I
II venture no opinion aa to the dance,
except that It ahowa great aklll and
dexterity; but I do not think there U
any likelihood of Ita becoming a popular
feature of church or Handay School en
tertainment* to thU country.
Bealdea the foreign villagea on the
Midway are a number ofihowaofa
different character: A beauty thow,
"forty ladlea repreaentlng forty nation
alltlea"—and I will wager that all but
three of them were born In America;
two glaaa manufacturing pianta;areai
Ice railway; Hagenbeck'a trained anW
mala, "the only trained anlmala In
America," Ac. The trained anlmala are
wonderful. After aome preliminary
performance by lata interesting anlmala,
a lion rldea horaeback and doe* aome
leaping acta. Then the attendanta fatten
bracket shelve* to the bar* of the cage
which forma the arena, and Um whole
troupe of anlmala come In and take their
placet oo the shelve*. The troupe ron
■lat* of oo* polar bear, two black bear*,
alx ilona, two tigara, two panthera, and
four boarhounda. IJont and tlgera ride
velocipede*, beara walk a rail and roll on
a ball on their hind feet, and so on.
I suppose It U foolish, but I did ool
mora than half enjoy tlila performance,
becauae of the sympathy I had for the
poor wild beaata. If I knew I muat end
my daja Inside * little cage, 1 should
thank aome one to shout roe; and wlien
the Hon nearest me, ttie king of bea'ta,
born to roam untmmmeled, got dow n
from hla ahelf and wearily went to lnke
hla part In aome trick, and then cairn
back, climbed u|k>o hla little ahelf and
bowed hla kingly head against tin- Inr*.
It seemed to roe that he waa rtullxlu#
and grieving over the Intense humilia
tion to which he waa subjected. Thr
king of beaata, caged and made to call
out the laughter and applause of feeble
man!
'Hie one pre-eminent attraction of the
Midway, a conspicuous object for miles
around, by day or by night, la the Ferris
wheel. It la MO feet Iii diameter, unit
the hlgheat point of It ataods feet
above the grouud. The thlrty-slx cnr»
which awing between Ita rims will sent
over 1400 people at one tline, and It run
night and dav. One of the thins* tint
Impresaea a Yankee moat about It Is the
way It U making money. It begau turn
ing the aotli of June, had paid for Itself
about the first of September, mid sine
that time the fair managers and the
owner of the wheel have each been
cleaning up about $4000 |ier day from It
A trip twice around the wheel costa fifty
cents, occupies about fifteen minutes,
and la well worth the time and mone).
The motion of the car W hardly pel
ceptlble, except by watching the frame
of the wheel. Tlie scene gradually un
folda aa you rlae, until at the top, If It |»
a clear day, you can aee, on the east, the
apparently boundlesa water* of I*ake
Michigan; on the north and west, n
cloud of black smoke which Indicate*
the location of Chicago; under you the
White City aud the.Mldway. It is w|'h
a feeling of regret that you realise you
are descending, to come to a halt at the
bottom and be turned out at the other
end of the car.
Notwithstanding all the beneflta of the
Midway, from an educational or an
amusement point of view, the money
making spirit Is rampant lu It. The ua
tlvea or most of the countries represent
od here are by no mean* slow al»out
