What is Going on at the Great Exposition. For the Teliobam. 1 Chicago. III. | May 25. 1893. f Doubtless many of the depart ment chiefs and executive officers of this great exposition will be glad when the morn of Novem ber 1st next, dawns, for then at least they will be free from fault finding. Those tenants of the exposition who have reared their homes and villages along Midway plaisance, have some reason to be dissatisfied with the manner in which the officials have treated them. They one and all paid large sums of money for the privileges granted, and many pay a royalty or percentage on their receipts. They were assured that darkness should be made as day, and yet up to the present time, the plaisance is not lighted at night., and no one seems to know when it will be. For the most part, they who have builded their towns and cities are for eigners, and speak in many tongues, and should be treated fairly in tkis matter, but some how the officials, after getting the advance money, have forgot ten that it takes at least two, to make an agreement, the first and second parts, in the fact that I they have ignored the second party, and possibly legal meas ures may be resorted to in order to bring them to p. realizing sense o? their duty. The question has many times been asked, what does it cost, and how far will 50 cents go? You can make the cost what you like, and 50 cents pays for ad mission to the Fair proper, all the State and exposiUonbaildmgs and also to the Midway plaisance, which is a broad avenue connect ing Jackson with Washington park. Along this plaisance, many foreigners live and work, just as they do at home, and wo who cannot afford to visit these coun tries, can through this means, get a correct idea of their habits and industries. These people make a charge of 25 cents to 50 cents. With this exception the admission fee of 50 cents admits you to the fair, from 8 a. m. until 10 at night. It has been decided by the local directors to keep "open house" on Sundays, even though the board of directors repay the government the $2,929,000 do nated them. This however, is subject to ratification by the national commission. Some re strictions haye been incorporated | in the resolutions, such as re lieving the employees from work, as far as possible, stopping the dance of the belts and wheels in machinery hall, and adding the holding of religious services and singing of Moody and San key hymns. There is no question as to the popularity, and good sound i horse sense in the stand thus taken. Open fair Sundays, means peace and quiet in Chicago, and [less recruits from the whisky I cure institutes. I We hope that the visiting edi tors and publishers will take back to their homes, kind i thoughts of Chicago. This will be a year of World's Fair I congresses and convention^ to be convened in this city and the knights of the quill were about the first to come among us. Many of them h&ve a taste of the ex position, and have gone home to return with new recruits later on. Canada's future governor-gen eral, Earl of Aberdeen, was given an informal reception in the Canadian building, which is now complete. It is two stories high, and built of native material. The different provinces each have a room, and are finished in the woods of that particular prov ince. The reception was held in the main hall, which was dec orated with flags and ferns, and about three hundred people were present, including the Countess of Aberdeen. Minnesota did the "North Star" State proud, for amid prayers, flowers, music and speech making by distinguished men, the building which stands as its representative in this clus ter of nations, was formally opened and dedicated, even to its baptism with the time-honored champagne. Prominent among the many State and foreign buildings, is the one for which the legislature of Illinois appropriated *800,000 to build and finish, and truly the money has been well spent. The dedication of this palace took place last week, and Gov. Altgeld and his brilliantly arrayed staff were on hand to lend their pres ence to the exercises. There was speech making by the gov ernor and also by Chicago's mayor. Carter Harrison, soldiers in bright uniforms, music, and ladies bedecked in rainbow colored bonnets. Perhaps the favored few wno held "invites" to the good things to eat on the second floor, voted that part of the ceremonies the best. Certain it is, that when the dedicatory exercises of other States are held, they will have to stir themselves to equal their sister State, Illinois. A hasty trip was made through Midway plaisance. and it is safe to say that one will not regret the small admission fee it costs to see these different countries brought right to our door. Even to walk the plaisance from one end to the other, is full of instruction, for there is much to be sees that cost nothing. The girl from the land of the shamrock were busy with their lace making and other industries. Among the visitors one after noon was the Earl and Countess of Aberdeen, who are much in terested in this village; The Japanese have not com pleted their thatched cottages of reeds, and bamboo. Through the plaited straw fence could be seen their little progeny playing and as happy as clams at high tide. Among the other dedica tions last week were those of old Vienna and the Chinese theater in Midway plaisance. The attendance last week was about 150,000. Obedience to Law, The American Journal of Edu cation for April contains the fol lowing article from the pen of our friend, J. N. David, who is too well known to many of our readers to need any special intro duction here. "Your scope is tut mine own, Bo to enforce the laws." ?Shak An eastern king, coming back at the head of a victorious army, leading the conquered ruler in triumph, and followed by herds of bleating sheep and lowing oxen, was met by the aged seer who, in the sternest language, denounced the triumphant king words that have floated down through the flood centuries: "Be hold to obey is better than sacri fice, and to hearken than the fat of rams." Children in our public schools, full of ambition and anxious to succeed, as life with its varied prospects lies all before them, need to have it deeply impressed on them, that obedience to law is the only road to success. Obedi ence to physical law retains the force of the oft instructive eye and ear, keeps the joyous life bounding through the pulses in the body. Obedience to economic laws gives a competence to furn ish home with its comforts, and leads on to wealth. Obedience to mental laws fills the mind with knowledge, and enables it to en joy the precious thoughts stored in literature. Obedience to the laws of our spiritual nature un folds the noblest part of our be ing, makes us lovers of men and lovers of God, gives peace en earth and promises eternal ages of the highest felicity. Then let us impress indeUbly on the mind of the child that obedience .to law is the road to success. , k ,-v J|L"y ypjlm; j? Children do not readily com prehend general truths. They do see particulars, and it is the fable of the parent crab walking straight that the young one may learn Teachers neutralise all their power in many instances as a few illustrations will show. The teacher who uses tobacco or alcohol has not much power when teaching the deleterious effects of stimulants or narcotics on the human system. The teacher who invariably lives be yond his income is a poor teacher of economy. The teacher who speaks of the duty of citizens to the State is not likely to bring up lawabiding citizens by daily violating law in using text books > contrary to the statute. The little attention paid to moral and religieus education in the public schools is awakening wide-spread attention, and one of the serious problems is how to train on those subjects and not intrench on the rights of the church, the home and the individual. Wholesome neglect is better all along the line than wrong training. Child ren learn more by absorption and imitation than in any other way. Look well to the child'^ sur roundings and nature will strive to educate aright Dangerous as it is, i street education makes better preparation for life, than hot house culture in schools with inefficient teachers. Science and Letters. HE charge has been m a d i> against scientific men that the progress of science is dis-1 tinctly hostile to the cultivation | alike of the! fancy and of the 1 imagination, and that some of the choicestdomains of liter ature must necessarily grow pore and more neglected as life and prog ress aro brought more completely under the sway of continued dis covery and invention. We hear these complaints now in the form of a helpless and hopeless wail, now as an angry and impotent protest. That they are made in good faith, and are often the ex pression of deep regret and anx ious solicitude for the future Of I some parts of our literature can not be doubted, and in so far they deserve to be treated by scientific men with hearty respect and sympathy. But is - there really anything in the progress of science that is inimical to the cultivation of the imaginative faculty and the fnllest blossom ing of poetry? The problems of life?love and hope, joy and sor row, toil and rest, peace and war, hear and hereafter?will be with us always. From the days of Homer they have inspired the sweet singers of each successive generation of men, and they -will continue to be the main theme of the poets in the future. As for the outer ?world in which we live, the more we learn of it the more marvelous does it appear, and the more powerfully does it make its mute appeal to all that is highest and best within us. And, after all, how little have we yet learnt! How small is the sum of all our knowledge! It is still and ever must be true that in the presence of the Infinite, "the greater our circle of light, the wider the cir cumference of darkness that sur rounds it." Mr. Michcol Barrett, of Clarks burg, lately appointed on the prison guard force, and Miss Grace Jones, of Dillie's Bottom, Ohio, were united in marriage by Rev. Father Boutlou, at St. Francis Xavier's church, Wednes day morning. The attendants were Mr. John Clifford, of Clarks burg. and Miss Annie Wingerter, of Wheeling. The happy-couple were guests at the Haaes House until Wednesday evening, when they went to Clarksburg, where they will remain with fnendr for a while and later visit the World's Fair at Chicago. The Heraldex teads congratulations.?Mounds ville IJeratil. A Woman Drummer. "Thore is a new racket on the road." said a commercial traveler; "it's a female drummer. I met her the other day and she is it ilandyj Of course she is from Chicago aau she sells goods like u January thaw. She has been out so long now that sho is as independent as a ho# on ice. She sits in an ordinary car and charges up sleeping berths in her expenses lust liko the rest of us. She walks to the hotels from the stations, and charges up the hack fares, just as wo do. Sho beats the landlord down to ?1.50 a day, and charges the house ?K.50, in the regular old style. Sho can take care of her self every day in the week; and she knows how to order up a bottlo of wine, and work it on the expense account too. Why, when I saw her'last she was a new silk dress ahead of tiie firm, and by New Year's proposed to have a sealskin saequo ou'. of her expensos. And that isn't all; she has half of the hotel clerks in the Northwest mashed on her; and the way the little rascal knock's 'em down on her bill is a caution. She has a regular trick of staying ever Sunday whore one of her admirers runs the house; and she walks oflf Monday morning, forgetting to pay the bill. What does she sell'! That's the funniest thing about it. You would think she would handle jewelry or millinery, or dry goods, wouldn't you? But she doesn't. She sells gents' furnishing goods; and the fly young men who usually keep that kind of stores buy of her as If they hadn't seon a commercial traveler for six months. And she is a dandy poker player, too. She handles the cards awkward ly, and acts as if she didn't know a full hand from two pairs, and raises $2 on deuces, and nearly t'other fellow shows up three of a kind, and then gets excited in a big jack pot, and raises the opener, and bets the limit, and raises back tnd scares t'other fellow out, and slides Into tho deck a little pair of sixes or sevens or a bobtail as innocently as you please. Bluff? Why, Bhe has a bluff on her like the-Wis consin River. She's a daisy; and I tell you its mighty lucky for the boys that there aiu't any more like her on the road."-|| Chicago Herald.
