What is Going on at the
Great Exposition.
For the Telegram ]
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 alone 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, aud speak in many
tongues, and should be treated
fairly in this 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
they have ignored the second
party, and possibly legal meas
ures may be resorted to in order
to bring them to p. realizing sense
ol 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 exposittonbuildwgs
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 arid Sankey
hymns. There is no question as
to the popularity, and good sound
horse sense in the stand thus
taken. Open fair Sundays, means
peace and quiet in Chicago, and
less recruits from the whisky
cure institutes.
We hope that the visiting edi
tors and publishers will take
back to their homes, kind
thoughts of Chicago. This will
be a year of World's Fair
congresses and conventions, to
be convened in this city and the
knights of the quill were about
the first to come among us. Many
of them hftve a taste of the ex
position, and have gone home to
return with new recruits later on.
Canada's furore 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
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, oven to its
baptism with the time-honored
Prominent among the many
I f'4"? and foreign buildings, is
the one for which the legislature
I or 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. Garter Harrison, soldiers
in bright uniforms, music, and
ladies bedecked in rainbow
colored bonnets. Perhaps the
favored few who held -invites"
to the good things to eat on the
second floor, voted that part of
tbe 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 though
Midway plaisance, and it is safe
to say that one will not regret
he small admission fee it costs
see these different countries
brought right to our door.
Even to walk the plaisance from
one end to the other, is full 0f
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.
niP* ^aPanese have "not com
pleted their thatched cottages of
reeds and bamboo. Through

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 pea 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 ia as mine >>wn,
80 to enforoe the laws."
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 ?n
earth and promises eternal ages
of the highest felicity. Then let
us impress indelibly on the mind
of the child that obedience .to law
is the road to success.
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 neutralize 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 tho 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
religious 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's# sur
roundings and nature will strive
to educate arigh t. Dangerous as
it is, a street education makes
better preparation for life, than
hot-houso culture in schools with
inefficient teachers.
Science anil Letters.
HE charge has
been made
against scientific
men that the
progress of
science is dis
tinctly hostile to
the cultivation
alike of the
fancy and of the
imagination, and
that some of the
of liter ature
must necessarily growjnore 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 6f
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 imaginatiye
faculty and the fullest 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. Michsel 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 Hanes House
until Wednesday evening, when
they went to Clarksburg, where
they will remain with friendf for
a while and later visit the World's
Fair at Chicago. The Heraldex
tends congratulations.?Mounds
