The eates ot the Mr Rt Chicago had to stand ajar Sunday to satisfy the opinion of his excellency and royal highness a com. mon pleas Judge in that city. The next thing we will be advised of will be that some justice of the peace will want to sain a little notoriety and insist upon some one bringing Injunction proceedings before him in order that he mar issue a temporary restraining order. There is nothing inconsistent now in giving the full bench in the windy city a chsnce for notrjety. The new postal money orders which have been ordered by the goverment will soon be issued. In the system there is little or no complication. Sheet will be issued calling for amounts from one cent to $3 which can be torn off to suit the purchaser. The postmaster will hsve no writing to do on ll, the sender simply en dorses the same as a check or draft. One cent will pay charges in any amount to 3, instead of 5 cents as at present. It is reported thst the mansgement of the Pennsylvania road has decided to dis pense with the use of the telcgrsph wires almost entirely In the operation oi its trains: and to substitute for them long distance telephones. It Is said the change is to be made in the Interests of economy, the management hsvlng convinced itself that the telephone can be operated more cheaply and with greater simplicity man the telegraph.

With some it is a Question of finance. with others oi time taken from business, difficulty of leaving home, or one of phy sical endurance. There will he discom forts, fstigue, vexations, delays; but a de termination to make the best of things, and have a good time, to "keep sweet" under all circumstances will bring its certain reward. The world's fair is such a wonderful achievement, such a rae privilege, a liberal education in so many directions, such a superior investment, it would be a great mistake not to avail one's self of Its advantages when it is so near. is it cannot be described, or appreci ated in advance, those who fail to see it will not know what they have missed ; so it Is only fair to urge that eyery reason able effort should be made to go even if one has to make aacrl floes in other direc tions for some time to come. Most people baye to elect in what they shall economize, and in what be indul gent. The essentials of a clean, well ventilated room, a neat and good oeu, toilet conveniences and a wholesome and appetizing table are not difficult to obtain at moderate rates, because Chicago expected a great part of the world to come to the fair, and new hotels with immacu- lately .fresh furnishings have been put up everywhere just outside of Jackson Park and in all the neighborhoods near. Most people take their meals upon the European plan of selecting from the printed bill of fare and paying for what they order. If meat is desired or many things in the home fare not counted as luxuries, each meal may be made to count up as high as the "regular dinner or breakfast;" but beyond the necessary daily variety to keep one's physical condition at its best one may in hot weather omit some of the vegetables, fruit or made dishes safely eaten at home, but not without risk,under thegretter fatigue and changed condi tions of summer life at Chicago. Down town in Cbicsgo one may get a well seryed lunch of good variety for 25 cents, but on the fair grounds where tea or coffee is 10 cents a cup, rolls and but ter as much more, and almost everything else above that, one may not tare sumptu ously on a small sum. Yet, if one cares more for what may be seen and leained by more days at the fair than one cares for a lengthy bill oi fare, here is an oppor tunity ior self-denial in one direction for indulgence in another. Fresh eggs dain tily cooked, good bread and butter or rolls, milk, good coffee and cream, pie or cake and Ice cream can be had and one can live awhile on these. At the Epworth hotel where we spent a week, thev set an excellent table, and their dining rooms Include both the regu lar meal and the European plan. Twenty five hundred guests cat at this hotel daily, many coming In irom neighboring lodg- ink houses. Parenthetlcslly, the w rlter lias no stock or Interest in the hotels named and paid lull fare ior entertainment there in. This hotel is at the side of Midway Plaisance, corner of Fifty-ninth street snd Monroe' avenue. It has about 650 rooms and applications for them are so great that they have refused 300 In a day. A bettor class of people than fills those dining halls one need not look for any where. The building is one of thuso cov- ered with "staff," plastered and sometimes tinted in the inner walls, the furnishings all new and good enough lor tempoiary use. There Is no fire or matches In the building, which is lighted by electricity. The cooking is done by steam and the coal and engine room is outside. The building is five stories high and has fire escapes outside snd Are extinguishers In all the halls. The dining room girls and chamber maids are, I judged, mostly young people who sre (tolnir this for the privilege of attendance at the fair, which this method of paying expenses affords. The chambers on Fifty-ninth street overlook the Merman village in Hit Plai sance and one coald always see the out-of- doors lunch under the trees and the life of the beer garden in full sway. There Is no doubt that many an emi grant from the fatherland lound among bis countryman there and its familiar cus toms temporary balm (or any homesick ness. The music of its concert garden was always rising to our windows or an evening, and the thatched roofs, plaited walls and wicker enclosures of the Javan ese vlllsge, a stone's throw away, was sug gestive ot an easy conflagration. That such dwellings csn surylve all the dang ers irom cigar stumps and matches and continue for six months will be a proof of either extreme carefulness or good for tune. The Eiffel tower and Ferris wheel are in view of the Epworth hotel, which is within easy waking distance ot Jackson Park, entering opposite the women's building. I have somewhere rsad that one could profitably skip the Plaisance, seeing enough ot it from the elevated railway. I would as soon omit the fair. The nov elty of seeing so msny nations going their ways snd living Ihcir shop and street lire, If one does not follow them to their private dwellings, is ai Interesting as anv one feature of the fair. It Is pleasant to linger there of in even ing on coining from the grounds, to It bv the wav and lust watch the stream ot humanity flow by, "all ns- MEW This Season? no TopB uggies, Phsetons, Surries tions and kindred and people and tongues" orientals in gay fez and baggy trousers. Chinese with straight drapery and gashed skirt, blanketed Indians, cowboys thst might havo strayed from Buffalo Bill's Lupport, South Sea Islanders In summer attre, and a miehty tide of well dressed, happy and oltcn handsome Europeans and their descendants, the most agreeable of anv to look upon. A Swiss soprano with picturesque costume and powerful voice aud an accompanist with Instrument at the entrance oi the great cyclorama of the Alps was trying to attract an audience. The Vienna rettuursnt and Java lunch rooms appealing to the appetite ; the Turk ish theatre and Moorish paince urging each their attractions; and moving away from glimpses of Fiji contortions and the monotony of their musical efforts we hsve Algeria and Tunis on the one hand, where modest and beautiful Caucasian girls show one "notions" of their country wares, lending to make the luggage heavier and the purse lighter. To have a Chinese Joss house without being near the Pacific coast, or Kllauoau belore you and the Sandwich Islands where they belong; or to rest placidly in old Vienna without going to Austria is a supreme luxury it Is made so real. One morning we had passed the Persian palace where a beau- tiful young woman sat in the retirement of a partially open porch fanning herself, Tempted to speak to her I was restrained by the Othello-liku Moor near her, but turned back and learned that she was from Beyrout, Syria, thut she bad been taught her correct and beautiful English by bcr governess, that the city Is now largely European and that she bad many American friends, that this country seem ed very delightful to her, and that she was pleased and did not consider It intrus ive that I bad spoken to her. That was encouraging and I learned something of young women in shops or In charge of ex hibits from Tunis, Algeria, Roumania, Japan, Ceylon and from the Indian wo men of tne reservations. Homesick mar tyrs to our great exhibit were these last who did not like our heat and our thund erstorms, and would be glad to get back to the pine woods, the rocks and the trout streams .of their beloved Maine. The Ceylonese were the least Intellignt or at tractive of any of the foreign women. Their hair was made straight as possible with pomade, and the heavy coil at the back wss held by startling and showy pins, beside Immense esrrlngs and every thing in the necklace and bracelet line they wore nose jewels, snd their teeth were very much filled with gold. As thsy laughed all the time the dentistry showed to good advantage. Their costumes were a queer combination oi white - cotton tinder-garment and over drsss of silken bro caded fabric. They were slight and small, but said their women averaged as large as the women of our nation. Some Are you going to buy If so, don't ley, where you will Prices to suit At the old Tripp shop, Wellington, O. of the lorelgn women who came with the exhibits expected to remain In America, and expressed themselves as charmed with our country. Except when idly resting of course one did not notice the people; but after all no one thing was so Impressive as the great multitude of cul tivated, courteous, well-to-do attractive people. Nowhere else in the world could you see so many In a day, and dny alter day of so high an order of Intelligence. On the evenings of an illumination yon saw and estimated them not by thousands and tens of thousands but by acres. You thought to avoid the crowd by pausing through the buildings, but they streamed through eyery aisle, over every viaduct, by every avenue of exit They thronged the platforms to the derated and other railways. They losded the electric cars until as far down the track as we could see they were blockaded, and we were more than ever thankful to walk the lit tle distance to our hotel In greater ssfety. "All about the people and nothing about the fair." That is true, but the people are ol all our exhibits that which most flatter our national pride, and is thst which will most command the respect of the nstions abroad. Buy the guide books snd lesrn about the fair, but to get any adequate idea of America and the and the Americans, go to Chicsgo and see how universally good.tempered, pa tient and polite is the American torn 1st, not excepting when he Is hungry and waiting bis turn at the elevator to the lunch rooms or to have his order filled sfter hi has a seat at table. And by the way, there are caterers and caterers. The best food and neatest seryed we found in the bortcultitiral and in the woman's buildings, and even at these places it is best to get hungry esrly, and thus avoid the delay and the crowd. There are many places on the grounds where we saw people occupying the seats and eating their lunch, As filtered spring water can be had almost anywhere for a penny a enp, those not provided with drink but having a cup can supply that need, and much time and money would be saved by bringing food purchased at the boarding houses or numerous restaurants and bakeries outside. The waits on the grounds are kept very wet by the sprinklers and thick-soled shoes are necessary if one does not like to wear rubbers, for the long continued dsmpness finally tells with many people- The faculties must be dull indeed and the mind unreceptlve that la not pro foundly Impressed by the evidence of ma terial progress, Intellectual acvancement and fraternal regard among the nations as seen In this world's exposition. That there should be differences of opinion among so many beads of depart ments, or errors of Judgment under such weight of responsibility Is les strange than that there if not more confusion and mum fail to call on find a full line of Roath'ns and the times ! ! lets perfection In the running of- so com plicated a machine as the official manage ment of this great undertaking. One could not take in a view from any part of the grounds embracing these without a masterful sense of the ability of tho minds which had conceived and those which had brought about the architectural creations of so much beauty and so per fectly adapted to the uses intended. Ex perience of other world's fairs must baye done good service In the preparation for this. As several ot our purly were booked for the Woodlawn Terrace hotel, corner of Sixty-filth street and Hope avenue, we called upon them and found Mr. W. M. Jordan, formerly of the American House, Wellington, its manager. The Fremont guests were warm in their praises of the advantages of this new, substantial and elegant hotel. Standing apart from other buildings it Is as safe Irom fire exposuiea as a country dwelling and being design ed ior an apartment nouea tbere Is no sbsm In its construction, but everything in It Is built to resist the elements. The sanitary conditions are perfect, the con veniences snd furnishings ol the best, and it is so near thft Sixty-fifth street entrance to the grounds as to make it very desir able, there being rooms and lodgings for from 00 cents upward and board as at other hotels. We moved to this place as soon as the week had expired for which we bod en gaged at the Epworth. One hundred and thirty-five rooms were filled at Woodlawn and guests were convinced thai they had as desirable accommodations as could be bad. There is a Woodlawn hotel and a Ter race hotel, but the Woodlawn Terrace hotel is larger than the imitations, and its brown stone towers and name can be seen from the Illinois Central trains in passing Irom Grand Crossing to Sixty-fifth street station, or from the electric street cars on the same route. Mrs. J. T. Ogden, of Knoxvllle, Tcun., and son Charles, greeted us one day and determined to come to Woodlawn Terrace (or Its convenience to the grounds, finding the transit from more distant lodgings a source of annoyance, delay and anxiety. Mr. Jordan does not look a day older than when he jvas in business in Wellington. His home is two miles cityward, but he was in the desk at an early hour and attending to the many duties in the oversight of this house very recently completed and opened. The rooms at 73 cents a day for each person, or if there was a third occupying a cot, as in the case of parents with chit dren it wss no more, were bsndsome enough for any one, with nice bedding, screens to the windows and every neces sary comfort. Light luggage what on can carry with them In traveling, Is a great advan tage and saving of care, time and money ; and easy shoes sre a necessity. Go to the fair and stay as long as you can afford. It will be a life-long antiefac lion. M. H. H. C. B. Linds- Carts SLIY , Krarues' Headache Capsules. A remedy used .with unvarying suc cess as a cure for headaches ol all Kinds.
