The indissoluble union of indestructible States is well illustrated in the government and State structures at the Pair. Emotions of patriotic pride are aroused by tliem in every one who rejoices in American cit izenship. How glad the people of the United States should be to realize thai all the Stales can fraternaly assemble on terms oi perfect equality, o.i an occasion like this. W iiatever may have been the nature of tho differ ences back of the civil war?and sonn of them were older than the genera tion involved in the conflict?the whole people can see now that i lie greatness of the nation, and tlie fulfillment of its highest destiny, depend upon the perpetuity of the Union. All "the colonies founded the Union, and all the States are knit together to shield it in peril and advance it in the scale of civilization. The end ol the civil war was the triumph of the Union idea and not of any faction oi the people over another faction. Peace rviped out the lines of division. It made possible all that has followed constituting the Union of to-day, the nation that, through force of duty has extended its boundaries far beyond the old limits, and, in the interests oi the world's commerce as much as :ts own, is constructing an interoeeanic highway that only a great country could pay for or defend. Among the States and their inhabitants there are minor points ot contrast. yet among citizens each is equal to every other, and each has th: same share in all that constitutes the general government or the State. An American greets another American, r.c matter from what part of tfco country. with an overruling sense ol civic fellowship. Customs may hav" local peculiarities: points of view as lo business or matters of social inter -si may Vtiry it. JliLlU, UllL AiJici ivaii viu-v.u~....; is the basis of a broad resemblance thQ tie of a brotherhood that w?!I lasi through tlie centuries and solve prob lems of vast"'importance to humanity. For it. must be remembered that republican government as a bad in? force among nations must, stand or fall with its results in the United States. The experiment, if it must still be regarded in that light, has developed .into something so vast, s< dominant in mAany ways, that its failure would endure forever as a discouraging record and precedent. Few citizens are able to say that they have visited all the forty-five States. But all the States have come to the Fair, and the scene is inspiring. The territories also are represented. States of the future, peopled from the older commonwealths, and confident that they, in turn, will fill the larger sphere with honor to them selves and- devotion to the "Union, r,nnrr i? the roll of States carved from the Louisiana p.urchase. Their history is an assurance that the country may continue to grow, to be filled up by the original stock and the sarin sources from which it was drawn There is no North, no South, no East | no West among the State exhibits They represent union, patriotism. arn: 1 ity, a generous, mutually helpful ri valry..

WASHINGTON, IX C.. May 11,? I I'nclo Sam;, will go in to the lottery ^ j business for a little while, as the outcome of legislation enacted by Con ) : gress in tlic session just ended; for ^ 'opening to settlement lands in seve C'.al Indian reservations In the AVcstv I ; Applicants for lands in these reser; rations -will have to register their .. ; names with govern nfeiu officials apj pointed 10 conduct the drawings. In | the sixty days after the opening, of . the reservation the lucky seekers for - homes, determined b> lottery. will have the chance to select the land . they want. In this way il\ey will be * protected from the wild .scramble. I with the usual attendant bloodshed. . which has characterized the free home . entry plan in the past. There a?e no. table advantages in the plan. It not | only determines the order of choice. - | but keeps a record of the people who ! have entered the new lands and how j uracil they owe the goyernmenl for . ; the land they have taken up. . i The reservation lands to be disposed | of this lime are not to be opened to i The public free of all charge, as was I <1 one in the Oklahoma and other open in&s several years ago hut will be sold ! at a fixed charge. The following" facts show, in brief, the opportunity for ] the home geekors and how they must, t j have money to get started this time. > I instead of only dash and. daring as before. Lands Are In Northwest. (.amis to be opened in Montana. 1?1.00,000 acres, to be sold at $1.25 an acre; limit for any one entry. (MO " acres; opening in August. Rosebud reservation. South Dakota, 41(1,000 acres, at $3 an acre: opening in July. Tied Lake reservation. Minnesota, 400,I uoo acres; practically same conditions. . Devil's hake reservation. North Da. i kota. 104.-31.(5 acres; most fertile lands . i iii that section of the West, $-1.50 an . acre; opening' in July. ; Government officials in Washington who will have general direction of the plans of execution are confident that; i the coming drawings will prove more - successful and satisfactory to every . one concerned than have any of the ? past, attempts of the government to help along the home seekers of the ? West. Previous attempts to distribute free - land have been attended by the greafl est disorder, and sometimes by loss [ of life. The Oklahoma opening was I the focal point for 30,000 anxious and t adventurous people, most of thein try. ing to get something for nothing, with the idea of disposing of it as soon as they could realize anything on it. The real home seekers were put at a disadvantage by these land butchers, and 13,000 quarter sections of land intended for homes went through a roundabout ownership without any ad- J vantage to the government and great ^fc-nm.nntooro 1a fho hfimp SPftkeFS. i By the new plan it is hoped to ob; viate all these difficulties. Every ap- j plicant must be registered before lie draws. When he draws a number and goes out to select his land he must pay a fixed price an acre for all he wants to take up. Having done that, he will be protected in his rights by i uie government by civil law in all - cases and by the military arm of the government wherever and whenever ? necessary. The real home seekers will take up the land in larger proportion than beI fore, while the prize-seeking desperado will tirid uus former advantage over the quiet, peace-loving citizen no loni ger exists. | Queen Draga's Power. A characteristic story is told about Draga, the ill-fated Servian Queen, by I ; Via ho Bukovac. the well-known artv.-x who painted her portrait two years I ago. "She wanted mc to make a portrait - of King Alexander also," lie says "but ? I could not persuade him to give i.ie - the necessary sittings.

" 'The meeting must lje postponed,' t was her reply, 'for I want yon.- portrait, and, if you iikc I will stay with I you while you arc sitting for it.' " 'Oil, if you'll stay with me, it's all . right,' answered tile King. anil i straightway lie sent word to hit inin' isters that lie could not meet too in for * a fsw days."
