Working Postal Exhibit. The United States Government build ing at tbe World's Fair occupies an. elevated site just south of tbe main picture of tlie Exposition. The great central dome of the Uovernuicnt build ing is visible from the very center of tlie Fair, looking across the picturesque sunken garden that lies between the Falaces of Mines and Metallurgy and Liberal Arts. The hill slope in front of the Gov ernment building is terraced with broad stairways almost completely covering the slope. Tlie building is SUU feet long by 230 foet wide and is the largest structure ever provided at an exposition by the federal government. It is distinguished from all the other large buildings at the Exposition by the steel truss construction, the entire roof being supported by steel arches, forming a splendid domed ceiling. In this building are installed the ex hibits of all the executive departments of the government. The building is a •vast storehouse of an endless variety of treasures dear to tlie heart of every true American. I'recious documents are to be seen here, and the autographs of our great men of the past are on display. Kelics of famous statesmen and soldiers. carefully preserved jthrough generations, are exhibited. 'Each governmental department lias in stalled an exhibit showing its otlicial character and mode of operation. Entering the Government building from the eastern end, the visitor sees 'at his left a railroad postoiiice car. •This is not a mere coach standing idle. LOUISIANA rUKCHASE MONUMENT, WOULD S FAIlt. but Is one of the most improved msiij cars, In which meu attached to the United States railway mail service are actively engaged in "throwing" the malls. Here you will see the postal clerks at work, just as they work while speeding along a railroad track. A curious collection of old time rel ics from the postodice museum at Washington Illustrates as no verbal xlcscriptiou can do the crude begin nings of the postal system. One of these relics is an old fashioned stage coach that once carried United States muils through a portion of the Louisi ana purchase territory. l'resideut \Uoosevelt. who once inspected it, ex amined with a rough rider's interest 'tlie bullet holes which stage robbers land mountain brigands shot through tits stiff leathern curtains. Generals Sherman and Sheridan and President Oarlield rode in this old coach during the strenuous days of frontier life. Among the collection of documents showing the primitive postal methods ill vogue in the early days is to be fseen the old book ot' accounts kept by the first postmaster general. Uenjaniin •Franklin, all written by hand. There is a rare collection of stamps, inclnd lug ancient Filipino, Porto liiean and •"•••(Julian stamps.

Charts ar ranged by him. showing the rapid growth of the nation In agriculture, arts, manufacture, population, etc.. are of special interest to sociologists and all students of the labor problem. The Census Bureau exhibit is made In tills section. It shows the tabulating ma chines used in compiling Hie census re ports. The Lighthouse Board, also op .•rating under this department, shows the great revolving lenses in light houses, with other interesting appli ances. The space in the projecting north west corner of the building is devoted to the Library of Congress. The edi fice which houses this library at Wash ington is held by umny architects to be tbe most beautiful building ID tbi F?: ww?i V: -V iS¥09 & K«- ^MS$h fesjn rtui'ld. Its Interior decorations, by El mer Ellsworth Garnsey, furnish one of tlie chief delights of a visit to Ihe national capital. A large model of this splendid buildins is a feature of the exhibit. The decorative features of tlie interior are reproduced in Iheir|: original colors. The next exhibit on the right hand side of the central aisle is that of the Interior Department, occupying 11.702 square feet. In this larue space the visitor timls so many tilings of com pelling interest that he is loath to leave. The Patent OHice exhibit be-':^ longs to this section. There are mod els of many machines that have borne an important part in the development of the nation's industries. The earliest form of every device of human inven I tion. so far as possible, is shown here. I For instance, yon may see tlie actual sewing machine that was tlie first con trivance of its kind every constructed it was patented In 184ti by Elias Howe. The first typewriter, patented by C. Thurber in 1K42 the model of the first cast iron plow, patented by t'harles New bold in 1707 the first screw pro peller. invented by Robert Ilook in 1C5S0 and many other "tirst" things are to be seen.

CURIOUS THINGS FROM CHINA The Mo«t Magnificent Beds Ever Seen Are Part of the Celestial Empire's World's Fair Exhibit. The Chinese exhibit at the World's Fair is tilled with pleasing surprises. Some of the most magnificent articles of furniture are a part of this wonder fui display. The carving and inlaying of ivory, bone and wood illustrate the marvelous skill of the Chinese. Models included in this interesting exhibit show the homes and home life of the Chinese, their weddings and funerals. Chinese tea house, restau rant and shop, Chinese weaving and some ot" the beautiful silks and wear ing apparel of the Chinese and their methods of manufacturing them. One feature of the exhibit is two magnificent Chinese beds, each of wtiicii has tlie appearance of being a email house of great beauty. One is a summer bed, the other for winter. Hie summer bed is hand carved and inlaid with ivory and bone ligures and land scapes exquisitely carved and so skillfully joined as to appear a part of the wood. The bed and furniture are of carved bamboo. The bed consists of au 'anteroom, with tables, chairs and tea stands, and in an inner room, which is the sleeping apartment, there is a couch with coverings of gauzy silks. The winter bed is still more elabo rate. It cousists of three compartments. The first contains four chairs, a tea poy and a chest of drawers. This is the sit ting apartment. The second is the dress ing room, and the third is the sleep ing apartment, or the couch itself. The furniture is of rosewood inlaid with ivory carving of birds, flowers and trees. The couch is covered with silks of the liuest texture and in gaudy col ors. The sleeping compartments are lighted with Chinese lanterns of silk hung at the outer entrance, while the light enters through gauze panels, hand painted and in forms of rosewood in laid with ivory ligures. A table aud dish made of highly pol ished ash, with exquisitely carved bamboo ligures inlaid, are shown. The work is so artistically done that each article seems to have been made of one piece of wood. There is also a large display of Chi nese laniurus made of silk, gauze and other lij-'hi material and some made of beads artistically arranged with glass centers. The silk aud gauze are beau tifully hand painted. There are models of some of the great Chinese temples, theaters and arches, showing elaborate carving in wood aud ivory and two large elephant tusks exquisitely carved. WHARFAGE FREE AT ST.

Mrs. Clyde Fence Tells How to Know a Nun's Character by tisicnius to His Words—Mjiuio a Tonic For tlie Sick, Especially Those Mentally AlTccted—ExMential to \V«u "Character reading" became out of date in Millard avenue, Chicago, tlie other day from now 011 "character hearing" will be the vogue, says the Chicago Tribune. At the meeting of the Women's Literary club of Millard avenue, held in the afternoon at the residence of Mrs. Charles E. Curtiss, the president, Mrs. Clyde Pence, told her fellow members how to "hear" a man's character in his voice. She gave the following rules: Those who have a deep, sonorous voice, like that of a donkuy, are indiscreet and quarrelsome. Those having a sharp, thin, husky voice are weak and yield easily to temptations. A full, abrupt voice denotes a strong, impulsive, bold, enterprising man. A powerful, deep voice generally indi cates cowardice. The man possessing a voice which is deep at tirst, but raised to a high key as he liniahes spoauinj is noisy, irritable and ot unhappy dispositioa. Those having a thin, shrill voice are peevish, ill tempered and passionate. A low. sweet voice is an "admirable thing in woman." Tlie speaker's subject was "The In fluence of Music 011 Health and Life." She said that music is prescribed as a good tonic for the sick. "It is successfully employed in our insane asylums," she said, "for sad ness, depression or despondency. It jhm forms wonders in cases of longing tor new excitement, cheering all who suffer from low spirits. If we would apply music to tlie treatment or relief of disease we must necessarily be ac- 1 quainted with the patient's manner of life, his character, temperament, hab its and passions. If the patient is mo rose avoid songs likely to keep his mind in the condition into which he lias fallen." Mrs. Pence then prescribed the fol lowing kinds of music for use in the different cases described: Lively and vigorous music for a del icate, weak and nervous child. Those of a dull, sluggish nature should be gradually roused by means of power ful and impressive music. Those of a nervous disposition must be soothed by sweet and tender melodies. Those of bilious temperament should hear songs that aro light, short and tinged with gayety. "Even those not ill," continued Mrs. Pence, "will find music useful in Strengthening mental energy and ideas, in refreshing the imagination and re lieving fatigue." The speaker urged that music is es sential to war. "An army," she said, "would as soon think of leaving its gunpowder at home as its harmony. I believe that the mu sic more than the cause during our war with Spain made the flower of manhood of our nation fall into line and go down to Cuba to combat not only the Spaniards, but the fever." Mrs. Pence declared that the influ ence of music on animals is as potent as upon human beings. "The passions of animals, like those of human beings," she said, "have nat urally rhythmical character, totally in dependent of all education and cus toms. Tenderness, melancholy, grief, gayety, merriment aud rage sometimes can be aroused and again calmed by songs, especially if the songs are sim ple and the phrases which compose them are short and easily compre hended." Then the club tested the power of music. The club chorus sang a num ber of selections, and Mrs. Edward Tlbbitts sang a lullaby. Fokeriun.
