THE WORLD'S FAIR.
An Englishman of Kipcrlcnet SurpriiM at the ProgNH AliNdr Made. (Special Correspondence.] CHICAGO, May 19.—A venerable English man was one of the visitors at the World'* fair headquarters a few days ago. Inter national expositions are something of a hobby with bim. He took an active part in the work out of which grew the Crystal palace of 1851 he has represented his country in one capacity or another at all the international exhibitions held on the continent of Europe during the last three decades, and he crossed the Atlantic to spend a month amid the glories of the Cen tennial of 1876. The visitor was given a pretty thorough insight into the methods of administration that have been adopted by the national commission and the board of directors, and was also made pretty thoroughly acquainted with what had been done and what it is proposed to da Then be made a tour of the departments, and when this was finished he turned from a listener into a talker, and expressed himself concerning what he had heard and seen in eulogistic terms. At no previous exposition in his life lime, he said, had the preliminaries been so well organized and arranged, nor had any previous board, or series of boards, ever been called upon to grapple with an international show of such magnitude as appeared to him to be contemplated. Most especially was he struck with the work of the department of promotion and public ity. Although they had the prince eon sort at their head, he said, people who 'brought the first London exhibition to a successful issue had little or no aid from the press. In those days, in fact, the idea of working the press" was unknown, and, outside of an occasional bulletin issued by the executive committee, people remote from London, and, for that matter, outside of the immediate location of the palace at Sydenham, knew very little concerning what was being done. All the negotia tions concerning exhibits and displays were conducted by correspondence with the parties interested. It was a revelation to bim to see room after room on the fourth floor of the Rand McXally building occupied by trained newspaper men, all busily engaged in pre paring articles in half a dozen languages, \juid to learn that the big sacks of mail matter that were being carried out con tained material that would soon be read by hundreds of thousands of people, not only in this country, but in far off Australia, in China and Japan, France, Germany and Austria, and not excepting his own coun try. That the women should also undertake WHO active a share of the work was also to him a surprise, for forty years ago their co-operation was noteven asked, norwould it have been accepted even had it been vol unteered. In those days women were not supposed to know anything concerning public affairs or public enterprises, and if they did know anything they were expect ed to maintain a discreet and respectful silence. In fact it is said that the late Lord Palmerston vetoed a suggestion re garding some of the designs for the Crystal palace because the prince consort admit ted that it emanated from the fertile braiu of the queen, and the gruff old political leader, loyal to the throne as he was, would not tolerate a suggestion that came from a woman, even though that woman was the queen herself. There were many other things that sur prised the white haired, spectacled visitor. When the architects' plans were unrolled, and be was afforded some general idea of the extent and magnitude of the buildings that are contemplated, his mouth opened wide and his eyes bulged out. From a leather wallet that was brown with age be produced a faded newspaper picture, in that rudimentary style of art that prevailed back in the fifties, of the Crystal palace, but it looked only like a side show when compared to the structure that will be erected under the auspices of the national government, and even this will be but one of many. More surprises awaited him in the treasurer's office, where bulky account books were brought down off the shelves, and he was shown page after page of names, not of millionaires or capitalists,' or even of solid business men, but of daily wage workers -who had contributed their mites toward the capital stock in order to display their patriotism. There were no "wage earning" subscribers in the days of '5L These were only a few of the things that he saw or was told, but he will take back to the English metropolis a marvelous tale of Chicago enterprise and American determination. And there will !:e more surprises, not only for our friends in England, but for our well wishers all over the European con tinent who taave tried to grapple with World's fairs of their own. Between this and 1803, and in May of that year, will come the crowning surprise of all. HKXRV M. HTTKT The Princess Who Stoops for Freedom. The Earl of Fife's motto is "Virtute et Opera," and there are those bold enough to say that work and virtue are piously adhered to by the canny Scot. If being a "sleeping partner" in a London bank ing house is work, and never having figured as a co-respondent in any divorce case is virtue, then the grandson of the beautiful Fitz-Clarence is a model swell who will make Louise Wales an excellent husband. At all events, that young wo man is going to have abetter time than her sister princesses. The ear' is not such a muff as the Marquis of Lotne, for he has at once made two conditions in regard to his marriage with royalty. His wife is not to be dogged by a lady-in waiting, and she must assume his rank, a step down though it is. If this mar riage proves a success from the point of view of happiness, anew order ofthings will soon reign in the United Kingdom, and other princesses will be following the example of the daughter of the Prince of Wales. They, too, will stoop for free dom. and so, gradually, that gigantic fabric of royal rank will melt and vanish into air.—Boston Herald. rraaioM far frilelM 8«mm. There are number of notabilities who are enjoying a pension for judicial services in England. The Earl of Sel borne and Lord Henchell receive each £5,000 a year as ex-lord chancellors, but •it with the lord chancellor and the lords of appeal in ordinary for judicial business. Lord Blackbnrn, many year* a judge of the queen's bench division and for eleven yean, a lord of appeal, en joys an allowance of £8,760. The pen sion usually granted to a puisne judge on retirement after not less than fifteen services is £8,500.—London Tit- ST 1 REVERIE OP A BACHELOR. a* laokN and Dniw inl Thra Makes Op His Mind to U|kU rrosli CI|H, Puff! This cigar—cost a pretty penny too—is execrable. I feel like throwing it away, only blowing the smoke into rings is an amusement that I hate to forego. Puff! Now, that ring is a posi tive work of art. Pity it has to go up— in smoke. Rings of smoke—they are very like marriage rings. The delusion lasts about as long. They are infinitely more amusing—and less wearisome. Fancy being married! B-r-rl No more bohemianism, no cakes and ale—nor champagne, either—no pipes and punch. Instead—a drowsy fire—a clatter of dishes from the kitchen—a wife knitting socks for the inevitable family. Later— a fall fledged paterfamilias—bnying and paying money to the school trusts—growing posy over "when 1 was a young fellow, sir." I shudder to think of it. Besides, it is so much pleasanter to play at playing the game than really to play it It is very pleasant to make love —and that is why marriage is so un pleasant one can't make love then. Making love is a game that should al ways be played on the progressive plan. With the same partner always it be comes dreadfully monotonous. It is for that reason that I pity the married To flutter from flower to flower, never bestowing affection on any, but affecting to adore all—that is the bachelor's priv ilege. But, you say, one cannot make love with gray hairs. An old beau is the most ridiculous of men. Yes, yon are right. But it is not necessary to be al ways making love. As one grows old there are so many other hobbies. Puff! How blue that smoke is! A kind of fading, ethereal blue, not tang ible in words or from the palette. A blue like the blue of a pair of eyes—ah, what glorious eyes they are—set in marble white frame—like the blue and white loves of Dresden china. I wonder, by the way, if she meant all she said—with those eyes—at the Bran son's that night! She said—a good deal She is really—not half bad. Rose Alwin —a pretty name—rather. Rose—um, she will still be Rose if—. Well—the fact is—between me and the blue smoke —her face has been haunting me like a ghost. I might—marry the ghost. From what her eyes said that night—she wouldn't say no. If I were to throw away this cigar—put on my hat and gloves, and go to her—what an exquisite joke it would be—considering what 1 said about marriage just now. Puff! By jove, 1 will do it! Pah, goodby, ci gar—even bad things have an end. This glove—comes on too easily—deuced bad form. Um—how dust will settle on a man's hat Now—I think 111 do. What's that? The city post H'm. Dun's bills. Ah—a woman's hand. Wha—at? "Mr. and Mrs. Alwin an nounce the wedding of their daughter, Rose" Ugh. How chill the room seems. must—light afresh cigar.—J. Percy Pol lard in Epoch. A Queer Distinction la California. There were some queer distinctions in those days. One Sunday, going to the butcher's booth, I found a customer ahead of me, who inquired if he could not have a piece of a liver which was hanging on a tree in plain sight "Don't know if you can or not," said the butcher. "I'd like to know why? I've been trading with you all along, and never asked for liver before but I want some variety now." "Stand around and let me look at you. No, you can't have any liver." "Well, why?" "There ain't enough to go round. I have to have some rule about givin' it out, and I have decided that no miner can have a scrap of liver from me unless be wears a canvas patch on the seat of his pants." The canvas patch was a badge of prece dence as well recognized in our camp on the Trinity as the star of the Order of the Garter is in Great Britain.—E. G. Wsite in Century. tamlcu Habit. once had an intelligent young man in my employ who deemed it suffi cient excuse for neglecting any impor tant task to say, "I forgot it." I told him that would not answer. If he was sufficiently interested he would be care ful to remember. It was because he did not care enough that he forgot it. 1 drilled him with this truth. He worked for me three years, and during the last of the three he was utterly changed in this respect He did not forget a thing. His forgetting he found was a lazy, care less habit of the mind, which he cured. —American Grocer. yJAf.?S?oiL SPRAINS. BRUISES. Ohio & MiM.Rallway.

Mr. Webster is the cashier of the James River National bank and is one of the solid and reliable business men of that section of the new state. After several years of rather poor crops Mr. Webster can be pardoned for feeling jubilant over the outlook for this year. The farmers, as well as everybody else, he says, are feeling very muoh elated over the outlook, and if everything goes right for the next few weeks a wonderful crop of wheat will be harvested. "I hear peo ple who live outside of North Dakota talking about the state being a desert outside the Red river valley," he said yesterday. "I wish those same people would take a trip through the Jim river now they oouldn't help changing their minds. To be sure we have had bad years, but can you tell me of a country that never had a failure? We have the most fertile soil on earth, and when the farmers are established and produce something beside wheat, you will hear no mote of orop failures and droughts." "£.
