New England Shoe Store, S, L, Smithers, 11 South Main Street, Helena, SNOTES OF THE WORLD'S FAIR. An Ohio World's fair commissioner has estimated that the exhibitors from his state will spend upwards of $5,000,00: in the preparation of their exhibits for the expo sition. The California building at the fair will be an imposing structure of the "old mis sion" type, 110x500 feet, with a dome, and costing about $75.000. It will be sur rounded by a hedge of Monterey cypress. Vermont will have a building at the ex position without drawing on the state ap propriation for the cost of its erection. One hundred substantial citizens have guaranteed $10.000 for that purpose, each one pledging himself to pay $100. Michigan's building will measure 100x140 feet and be three stories high. It will be constructed of Michigan material, which with the furnishings will be donated. 'Though but $20,000 of the appropriation will be devoted to its erection, it will in reality be a $50,000 building. Denmark will spend about $5,500 in show ing, as-a leading feature of its World's fair exhibit, a Danish dairy, complete and in operation. The dairy interest is one of, the most important in Denmark, and the most approved methods and mechanical appli ances are utilized in the dairies of that country. The governments of Norway and Sweden have, respectively, asked for World's fair appropriations of $61,288 and $53,600. In Norway a number of private citizens are raising a fund of $10,720 with which to build and send to Chicago a counterpart of the Viking ship which was exhumed near 'bandefiord. a few years ago. W. L. Libby & Sons, of Toledo, intend to erect on Midway plaisance a factory in which the manufacture of cut glass can be seen, ftom the furnace, on through the cut ting, finishing and decorating departments, until the finished product is turned out. The factory plans call for a structure 125x 200 feet, of stone, iron and glass, and with imposing dome. The firm intends to spend $10,000 on the building alone. Connecticut held an enthusiastic World's fair meeting at Hartford on Washington's birthday, ex-Gov. s Waller presiding. A committee of sixteen, two from eachoounty, were appointed to look after the state's representation at the exposition. Sixteen lady managers were also chosen. Sub scriptions being called for, $S0,000 was pledged on the spot. It is expected that the legislature, when its deadlock is broken, will reimburse the subscribers. Special WVorld's Fair Commissioner Alex ander Campbell has returned from Austral asia and reports that great enthusiasm over tihe exposition is felt in that pa:t of the world. New South \Wales, South Australia, Victoria, Queensland, Now Zealanid, Tas uiania aco all making extensive prepara tions for their represeotation, and splendid exhibits ale relorted suar to be sent. Three new steamers between Sydnoy and Nan Francisco are about to be put onl. Baron do Borlevech, German minister of commerce, bits written to the chamber of c,,mmerce of Crefeld, thb Iprincipal place in Prussia for the unnoufacturs of silk goods, that the emper or ardently desires that there should be as line a display as possi',le of Gorman silks and velvets at the Chicago World's fair. A majo-ity of the silk and velvet manufacturing irums in the lthenlish Iurovincee will comply with the wishes of the emperor, whoeo interest in Germiany's share of the exhibition i, having a stimu lating effect in all directions. Italy will make no governmental display at the exposition. The king, however, has recognized the fair, by appointing a comn mission, and Minister of State itudinl has informed Vice-President Bryan and Di rector Higinbotham. that the gitvernment will encourage individual exhibitors in aversy way possible. lie intimated that it would oven pay for the transportation of all ex hibits. Mr. Higinbothalu repirts that there is throughout Italy much enthusiasm over the exposition and that the painters, sculptors and manufacturers of artistic wares are hard at work on intended ex hibits. Itemenyl, the well known violin virtuoso, hia made application for a spaie of not less than 400 square feet in which to ex hibit his great collection of rare Africao etlhnological specimens. The selection which comprises over 1,500 carefully ne lected specimens, bhas been formed during the last forty years, and is beyond ques tion the most perfect of its kind. It i especially rich in the ancient regal symp bols in use among the Zulus, including sceptres, royal bracelets, which were uses instead of crowns, and other emblems oJ hammered silver, of carved and polishes ivory and of rhinoceros horn. The royas bracelets are especially interesting. The3 are hollowed rings made from transverse sections of huge elephant tusks, and, until his death, were never taken off, after once placed on the arm of the king. There arc also several splendid specimens of the ex. ceedingly rare and beautiful royal silt mantles of the sovereigns of Madagascar, 300 and more years aco. These mantles are curiously adorned with broideries of metai and of uncut precious stones and of feather work. Every speoimon in the collection is perfect and unique of its kind. Mr. Uarilusow, of St. Petersburg, Russia, a dealer in fine oriental goods, intends tc exhibit at the exposition rare carpets, shawls, hangings and textile fabrics from the far orient. He will furnish a number of rooms in rich oriental styles represent ing the residences of the wealthy Mahome tans of Asia, and by way of contrast the tents of tie nomad tribes of the Kirguir Tartars. home of the apartments will be in the style of the Caueasus, others in the Bokkars and Chiva styles. The furniture and decorations for these apartments have been for the most part collected at great expense in the remote orient. Snirnow A Co., of the same capital, will exhibit a com plete suite of apartments of a "B]oyar" or wealthy Russian noble of the XII century, and also the cabin of the rich Russian peas ant of modern times. Each of these ex hibits will be in a separate pavillion of dis tinctively Russian architecture. The great samovar factory of T''oula, Russia, will send to the exposition a large exhibit of its pro ducts. It will also erect a great tea saloon that will be a great reproduction of the most luxurious of these establishments to be found in the great citiesof Russia in the early part of this century. ORDERIN(G A WIFE. A Candidate Sltlipiped by tet urll Steanter According to peuelllcatltons. Having made his fortune in the provinces, a wealthy Frenchman wrote to his business correspondent in Paris to the following terms: "As I have taken a resolution to marry, and do not find a suitable match out Ihele, do not fail to send by the next ship bound hither a younc lady of the sunbjoined quali fications: Let her be of an honest family, between A0 and :i. years of ane, of a mniddlu stature ant well proportioned; her fties agreeable, her character blameless and her constitution strong enough to bear tihe change of rlimant; that there mnry be no occasion to look for a second wife becau.o of the death of the first soon after sao camie to hand, which must be pro vided against as nm h as possible. (Consid ering the groat distance and the daulors of the seao. 1 demand no portion. If she ar rives here on the conditions stipulated, With the present letter indorsed by you, I hereby enunce to marry the bearer at fif teen days' sight." This is a sensible letter, very different from ordinary billet doux, and it was re plied to with punctuality and in the earmn terms, says the Irish 'limes. Amrong goods sent by his correspondent was the follhwing itemu: "A young gentle woman, 25 years of age, of the quality antd shape as conditioned per order, as appears by the rttidavitn and certificates she has to produce." A few days, we are told, were devoted to coutship., when the nuptial ceremony took place with gront maguiliconce; "nor did Itlartiniqus boast of a lihal,ier couple than the one thus singularly united." A SEVEN-FOO'I' SEA BASS. It Vas ('atteimt lit Ihte 'aecltie anti Weighed Four Ittndred f'ounds. A lugo crowd on the noon ferrybont, col looted about one of the trunk carts yester day, attracted by a huge and queer fish that was extended along the frame of the truck.

WE justly claim to carry the largest stock and most extensive variety of Children's s hoes in the city. Also that we sell them at closer margins, and give special attention to fitting children properly. Bring in the whole family. To every appearance the fish belonged to the trout family, and was judged to be a freak in size. One of the curious lookers-on measured the length of the monster and found it to be nearly seven feet, while the greatest breadth about the body was three and a half feet. The scales appeared very much like pieces of abalone shell, but were duc tile and semi-transparent, says the Sau Francisco Chronicle. By and by the inevitable know-all came along, and he explained the wonder to the lcowd. The sea leviathan was a species of the black sea bass, and by all odds the largest of its kind ever captured on the coast, Its weight was about 400 pounds. It was capotured off the Catalina islands, and the powerful rope fastened through its enormous month attested its prodigious strength. It was learned that smaller specimens of this fish are brought up from Santa Barbara and sold to wholesale dealers. The restaurants, by a process of seasoning and hammering out of the flesh, are enabled to serve the fish to their patrons under a dozen different names. Could Love anil Editor A drummer for a certain paper mill met a sentimental young woman on a Grand Trunk train going up to Port Huron, and it was not long before his modest diffidence so impressed her that she let him sit beside her and divide the charming landscape with her through the same window. After a der lightful talk of half an hour, says the i)e troit Free Press, he began to refer to him self and his labor. "What bhusiness are you in?" she in quired, naively. "The newspaper business," he said. COh," she twittered, "how lovely it must be to be an editor. So much intelligence is required. Such intellect. Such a compre hoeaivr'breadth and knowledge. So much of all that develops a man's brain and makes him equally a scientist, teacher, poet, artist, lolitician and statesmen. 1 am sure"-and. oh, how softly sweet her eyes turned upon him-"I tam sure I could love an editor." Then the modest, diffident drummer kicked his sample case under the seat and aidn't tell ther any better. Bueklen's srulica Salve.
