Leaving Abbeville on Wednesday afternoon H
the editor joined tbe South Carolina Stale (
Press Association at Spartanburg on Thursday
afternoon, and ariived In Chicago on Sat- t
day afternoon.
At A,"hfevllle we stopped three hours, and at c
Knoxvule we halted before daylight on Frl- t
day. Having missed tbe connection with tbe
next train, we remained in Knoxvllle until 1
two o'clock In the afternoon. During tbe day
westrolled about the city as accident or inclination
may have directed,
i ? ?~
KesuiDing our juurury, wo icauucu vuluigu a
as staled above on Saturday afternoon at j
three o'clock.
In our party were ninety two members of H
the press. Including perhaps thirty-five ladles. H
At Chicago we were a little disappointed In f
finding that thu stopping place to which we |
had been assigned lacked a little in some of fl
ihe requisites. We divided out and went to t
different quarters. t
When we had time to take our bearings, the r
whole of our parly by oommon consent, v
moved to "The Mecca," a large house, with
six hundred and fifty bed rooms on State v
street, between 38d and "4tb streets. This ?
seems to b" press headquarters, where nearly t
all the press associations of the country stop r
when In the city. The room rent Is a dollar a I
day?half price to members of the press, t
Regular breakfust Is served at fifty cents, or, 0
If guests prefer, they may get their breakfast a
elsewhere. c
The business of the house seems to c
be to furnish lodgings, while the eating de- p
partmeut seems to be under a separate man- c
The cable cars run past the hotel door t
toward and from the fairgrounds, while only
oue bloc, away is the elevated railroad
whose cars go by steam, and furnish more
rapid transit. The fare on any of the roads Is ,
Ave cents, whether the passenger goes f
one block, ten miles, or the whole length of '
the line. Trains run each way every three or
five miuutes, and consist usually of three or ?
four coaches. They are said to run all night. c
We know that we never saw the time that ,
they were uoi running.
Before any attempt is made at giving any
account of ibe Fair or the City, it may not be
amiss to say something of the cost of going to
tiie Fair, itemized, as follows:
Railroad ticket good for 15 days $80 75 1
Pullman sleeper, going 2 50 .
Pullman sleeper,returning 2 50 n
Room rent 5 ?0 e
RrfiktlkKt 6 00 t

Street car fare, 4 dally trips '2 00 t
3 dally lunches at from 20 to 30 cents 7 50
1 theatre ticket. 1 50
For meals ou return trip 2 00
For mexls going, take lunch lrom home 0 00
Iucldetital expense* 5 00 ^
Total 806 76
If a citizen of Abbeville should go by Spar. (
tan burg, Ashevllle, Knoxvllle and Cincinnati,
the expense might be Increased a Utile e
for eating aDd sleeping at Greenvjlle and ,
Spartanburg. The beauty of the mountain
scenery along this route Is not surpassed In |
this part of tbe country. By the G., C Jt N. to t
Atlanta Is more direct, and less time would j
be spent on the road than by the Aebevllle
route, though the scenery, I believe, Is not j
equal to the Bcenery ou the Ashevlile route.
The first and main thing to look out for, on
going to the Fair, Is a desirable stopping ,
place. A person of ordinary Intelligence f
could make uo mistake, alter be secures prop- ,
er quartets. I
There are plenty of good houses, where the j
visitor may sleep and rest In perfect safety ,
and In comfort, ,
While there are no doubt many places |
where It would uot be well for thecounlry- |
man to go, yet U he keeps on the better j
streets which are well lighted, he Is not apt to ,
make a mistake. ,
On the Fair grounds any lady, even when |
aloue, Is perlecti v cafe from anything like an- i
nnvnnne or DerDlexlne dilemma.
la the 3r?i place, the visitors at the Fair i
seem to be an aggregation of the best people '
ol the whole country, and they are all there i
for the same purpose, namely: To see the <
greatest sbow on earth. They represent the
respectable people of the country, and with- i
out exception, they are polite to all who may
hpeak to them, aud each seems rather grateful
than otherwise, tor the opportunity to apeak
to any who may address them. I
purlug all the time that we were on the
grounds we saw nothing and heard nothing
which would have been offensive to the most
cultivated taste, or which would have been 1
, disagreeable to the most sensitive ears. '
While there were hundreds upon hundreds of
ladles In groups of twos,yet there were scores
and scores of ladles who were alone, and who i
fell no need of fear or alarm, 1
The World's Fair commissioners have an
office In one of the buildings and the whole i
' receives their persoual supervision, aud under
them they have pu army of subordinates
. to enforce good order, if It were necessary
, to use force, 1
It seemed, however, that there was a total
iiOuencf ol all Improper persons, and tbat
there were preseut uone but respectable and
honest people, who were prompted by tbe
same desireas all the others?to see apd learu
ax much as possible, wllbout even tbe con"
tempjulion of eyilof any Ulpd.

she pleased, and he did pot see her dpriug the
day, until sbe reported at btsotflce In the evening,

On the first Sunday we went to church In
the morning and heard a sermon, JTroip the
f church we went riding on tbe street cars, and
niter awhile we halted at an eating bouse.
When lunch bad been served we went to {Jnj
coin Park, and spent tbe remainder of the afr
ternoon In Blgliuseelng?walking and riding
over tbe beautiful grouuds,
Tbe nest Sunday some of our party went to
r church. Others did uot, Tbe editor of the
r Press and banner spent an hour anda half op
i, the Kalr grounds that day. This was from a
sense ol duty, and not from mere choice.

& ly deserted?only the exterior of tbe great
5'white building*, the colossal orchen, and
u towering domes were 10 be seen, with here
'.and there a lonely guardsman, ?ny one ol
whom seemed glad to be spoken to, Asking
. ! one of these the cause for the desertion on
Sunday, he spoke substantially as follows;
"Religious and devoutly Inclined people
i are disposed to attribute the closing on Sunday
to the scruples of conscientious God-fear|
Ing people, when, In fact, the real reason is,
1 that the exhibitors shut up their booths on
s that day, the machine) y U standing dead, the
, restaurants areclosed and the places at which
r Iced drinking water U to be had has been de;
serted. Little, except tbe outside buildings,
i the art talleries and a few other exhibits are
to be seen. Tbe closing of the bootbB seems
I ,
to beja necessity. The exhibitors, or their .
Kgents, are daily on the grounds from morn- f
ing until late at night, and the rest Is absolutely
necessary. Anothei reason may be ,
found In the tact, that after the people have
Attended the Fair for several day* they want
a rest, and seek other scenes lor pleasure and f
recreation. K
"To show tbat It Is not I he religious sentl- v
ment that causes the present desertion of the
grounds on Sunday, it. would only be ueces- (
nary Incite the fact that while the construction
of these buildings was going on Immense s
multitudes thronged the P?rk every Sunday.
They paid twenty-five cents, ennie In severe c
weather, without the possibility of shelter lu
ease of rain or storm. t
"The work went on day and night, lnclud- t
Ing Sundays and Sunday nights.
"These high and dry grounds were raised by t
jredglng the water and throwing out the r
janrl nnd hv hrlnirlne millions Ol car loads of
*and from the country. a
"Mnny of these buildings are standing more
if less over J,Hke Michigan. Agricultural u
Dulldlne and machinery ball are largely over
the water. They stand on piles. The- pllcR
ire boarded up and hold these big* and hard ,
walks In place.
"These houses will be torn down as soon as .
the Fair is over. The Iron arches In most, of .
:hese buildings have been sold to corpora- i
Jons for union depots or other structures. c
They are of the best steel. The waste will be .
thrown Into the cellars to level them up.
The grounds belong 10 tbe city, and the con- j
ract requires the trash to be cleared away v
ind the cellars to be filled, as far as tho plus- c
er will do so. v
"All the statnary that yon see has bpen sold s
.o a firm In New York. Forfeit money has K
jeen deposited to secure the sale. v

Thanking the guard for his talk and for the t

This accounts for the way In which both l
Sundays were spent- Nelthei day looked like t
Sunday at all, except that, sweet hour of pray- u
ir which was spent at church. In the parks c
ve found saint and sinner mingling together 2
n the great mass of humanity which wax 8
ivery where to be seen resting on the grass, t
ilttlng on the benches, walking throrgh tne r
[rounds, or driving In vehicles of every Kind, a

The people and the city of Chicago made ?
xeat preparations for the World's Fair. c
ilaoy hotels and other houses were built to a
ceominodate visitors and to supply the con- g
equent demand for business houses?and the i
apply has been In excess of the demand, i
Sverrbody thought that hoard would not be
ess than & or $5 a day. But the great prepiratlon
aitd the sharp com potion has reduced
he prices to the lowest figures. A practical f
mslness man said to us that the Fair would L
nske more paupers than the fire In 1870. .
While It Is true that many people will be n
ulned In estate, yet It Is a fact that many
vllI make fortune*. 8
Aconsplouous Instance of fickle forinne Is
phere a large building, In a half completed '
late, has been abandoned. On this building
lulf a million dollars was expended. No h
nore money could be had and the whole Is
ost. Very near to this Immense structure Is

The net profits over running expenses is
laid to be about 56,000 a day. The oondnctor ?

The World's FalrCommlsslonen invited the v

Col. Hoyt spoke in behalf of the Asoclatlon,
and varioas members of the Com- r
nlsslon made spteches. f
Mrs. Trautbam Invited the Association to f
ea one evening In the New York building. t
This was a tony affair, and the ladles made It {
ixceedingly pleasant for the Press, and each e
>ne felt that it was a special honor to be there. G
Che ladles made It a delightful occasion for t
hose of us who bad come from Dixie. 8
During all our rambling over the grounds t
ve found only Ave persons whom we knew, a
aamely: (!
Mr. E. 0. Orchard formerly of Ninety-Six, i
who Is now a resident of the city, and in the 1
lewspaper business. 1
Mr. Thos, D. Parker of Abbeville was seen r
or a minute. i
We met Dr. Mlllwee of Greenwood for a s
lecond, but bad scarcely time to exchange a
vord with him when he was out ol sight. f
Prof. D. B. Johnson of Columbia was met I
n the electric building, and after a word or
wo we separated, and so it was that we saw
ittle of him.
Mr. John Cothran, conductor on the Q., C. (

Uabcock Standard No. 8 came nearer answer- c
ng our demands than any other. It was list- j
id at fl,$J0, b()t tbe manufacturers ''on ao- s
jount of tbe bard times," were willing to sell s
it for 8812, and said If pressed, ''they wouldn't t
et tbe extra twelve dollars break up a trade." 1
[ thought even at f900 there was a profit of a
iboutone hundred aud fifty per cent., and t
included ''on account of tbe bard times," t
that I would pospone the buying of any l
presses for tbe present. I have a first class e
power Campbell press, and a half medium t
*nd a quarter medium Gordon Jobbers. These t
will do all tbe work that I will likely get to t
So, and I will not buy any other presses for a \
while at least. The plan of listing presses at c
ibout double the selling price is confusing
md makes one afraid to buy.

With which we i>re unacquainted; tbiat we

of anything.

city In tbe JJnlted states does not exceed
our lnrormat}qn ^bopt ttje Fair. We know of
qo possible way of conveying to the reader
our utter lack pf information about these
great things, except tp compare pur ignorance
of them to tt)e lgnorauce qf the average

JVlusipai instruments oj every 41 uu uul? m

All the conceivable farm Implements were |
there, from the plow to the most elaborate
Fruits and animal products filled aepace
and were to be admired not only for uielr
own excellence, but as well for Die attractive?

Theoholcest of Naturo's works wore to be!
seen, Specimens of all the woods of the i
world, and the handy-work of every raoeof;
man on earth could there be found.
The printing presses lnoluded every thing
from the latest and fastest to the old hand
press which was the first press used In l'blla- j
The type-casting and type setting machines
ranged troin the oldest to the latest.
The flnexlcars and the best engines that the ,
world has ever seen were there.
The Government building gave us a sight of i
making fire-arms of every description.
All was made plain, from disinfecting |
clothing and ridding sblps of death deallug

of the crowd. An fur as the eye
oul'l reach the people werestandlug crowded
ogether In every direction. There were
cres and acres of th*m. Ho great was the
rowd that I thought we would be nearly all
light getliug away after the fire-works and
he electric display which closed about ten
I'clock, but very much to my surprise there
eemed to be no delay at all. As far as we
ouid see the people were carried away as fast
they wished to go. The different wuys of
ettlng passengers to the Fair and away from
t are enumerated as follows. Fare ou all
Ines five cents.
By the Cottage Grove avenue cable cars.
Capacity per hour, 20,000 passengers ;
By the State street cable curs. Capacity per
lour, 20,000 passengers;
By the Elevated Railroad from Congress

By Baltimore & Ohio and Northern Pacific

By numerous cabs, backs and coaches and
y water craft from landings on tbe river.
If you are going to the Fair for the purpose
f seeing It, ko alone. One man by himself
rill see more of the Fair In one day than a
roupe of half a dozen will see In a week,
'he reason for tills Is obvious. No two men
re likely to be Interested In the sameexhibt,
and If all wait for a single person Just that
ouch time is wasted. Another reason Is,
hat it tabes much time in trying to keep toother,
which could otherwise be more profltbly
spent in sight-seeing.
Let do man go to Chicago with the single
inrpose of seeing the Fair. The city of Chlago
U as great a wonder as the Fair, and no

fhele south carolina editohs ought

The members of the State Press Association
ecelved the nicest attention from Messrs.
iarnhardt Bros, & Splndler, the largest type
ounders In the couutry. This firm Is not old,
lut It Is one of the richest and moat successul
In all the country. One of the firm startd
out In life as a country printer and editor
if a little paper at one of the many railroad
antes in Illinois, He knew bow It was himelf
when be was a little younger than he is
tow, and bis early experience as country
trinterand editor, may have laid tne foundaIon
for his future success. Knowing all
,bout the printing business In Its smallest
letalls he knows how to supply the needs of
he country printers, He look great pleasure
r showing us through their Immense estabsahment.
and while Impressing us with the
nagnltuue of bis business, he also impressed
is with bis praotlcal common sense, and
terllng character. The country press of
South Carolina will likely send to this firm
or much of the little that they will hereafter
of what the boii.djyqs are made.
A composition called staff Is of > plaster,
sement and hemp, or similar fibre. 'All the
^position buildings, and many of the State
>ulldlngs are covered with staff. It Is lighter
>han wood, is fireproof, and, If kept paluted,
ylll last many years. The arcbltectual and
culptural designs in the coverings of the
>ulldlngs are first modeled in clay, from
vbich model molds are made, and the stall
ioverlng Is then cast very much as iron is
just. Staff hab been usea ior more man iw
rears as a covering for buildings, notably In
Joutb America. One of the wonders ol staff,
ls seen at tbe Exposition, Is Its color. Graysh
white 1h Its natural tone, and tbe basis of
ts success at Jackson Park; but It will take
iny tint that one chooses to apply, and main?
aln a liveliness akin to tbe solt bloom of the
lurnan skin. Stuff Is an expedient borrowed
rom tbe Latin countries, and much oultlvat:d
in South America. Any cbild skilled In

Chicago Tribune attributes the followini
words to Henry Watterson : "I had heart
several remarks made about the terribli
wicked things to be found In Midway, and It
the Interest of mankind In general I conc-lu
ded that K was my duty to see them, and 1
necessary raise my voice and wield my pet
In saying things about them. Well, I 'hav
saw tbein'?as an old friend of mine In Loulft
vlile says?and the verdict I have reached 1
that the Midway Plalsance has no right to b
connected In any way with such a woudei
ful show as the World's Fair. There Is noth
ing of Interest there to me except the types c
people. The so-called shows are frauds an(
fakes. Those that are advertised as being ob
scene and vulgar are weak and vapid. Ther
is nothlne terrible about them at all. and tbi
mysterious whispered comments upon thel
broadness are unnecess?ry. There Is no vul
garity about them. They are Insipid."
If you ask me If you ought to go, that Is i
question which I cunnot nnswer. I havi
given the faintest outline of what I think o
it. If you believe that travel, the meeting o
the best people ot America, and the seeing o
the best mechanleil products of the great

It Is for you to say whether It will remove re
