An Era In Furniture.
"Old mission furniture," whose fault
less simplicity drew admiring eyes
wherever it was first seen a few years
ago, has swept the World's Fair. If
there ' is . any State building or office
\ or reception room on trie grounds
_ which isn't Cf'el out with "mission"
furniture will it please speak up. Its

Ice Water Cases in the Desert.
* The watering facilities of the Fair
areVpfrthehecpest importance to the

facilities, since the Arrn.rican public
will drink ice water or nothing.

IjfeSb-. And Sousa Played "Sedelia."
Hfe*.-. Sonsa's 'band played "Bedelia" ye?

-so that it echoed from Festival
SrJiHall to the Administration Building,
\ - .if there tvero any lingering taboo

into small bits. Before the Fair
B^y.we, heard that class of music and no
hdvn.gtithe; but how our ideals fade, 03BHapiallywhen
it is necessary to get
tits worth of people into those
"h "hairs; .and people won't give
to hear the Traumerel. They
mrrtly give 10 cents to hear
play on a horn, if he were to do a cornet
solo. At least. I wouldn't, for
don't liite cornet solos, although that
always seems to be the next number
on the program just after rny arrival
at the hand concert. "Bedelia" was
welcomed by the loudest hancl-ciap- |
pins of (lie -afternoon, and if it had j
been "Good Oi<l Summer Time" or ;
"Under the Bamboo Tree," tome of the j
'audience; might have Keeled over back I
#aitd in. their joy., Sousa knows how j
to tickle the public fancy. He realizes
that the people like lilting measures,
and turn up their noses at psychological
muric. There is music that
"preaches" at people, ar; well ar. writ- j
ir.js and ((likings; and if is an imiul- i
Sent public that will submit, to boins |

amusing itself. The chief objection to j
"Bedelia" is that it is such poor ragtime.

Loyal to 1-1 is 5 nstructione.
A tall, slim youpgman from Kvaiisvfl'Jd'I
carrying a kodak, approached
a rrnard atone of the German sections
and asked if be could take a photograph
of one of the objects in the ex

from the interior or his garments a
thick, typewritten volume of rules,
he began turning the pages rapidly.
"But !. only want to take a small
kodak picture of the clock tbere. Certainly
there can be no objection to
that," said the man with the kodak.

and faster thumbed-' the attendant
through his book of rules, and, iinding

he said:

Seven Lies of Men.
Behold the seven lies of man \
And tell his :ig's by that:
As soon as lie can lisp he says:
"It. must have been the cat."
Next, when the baseball team begins
To make its thrilling score,
His well-loved grant, in a mm a falls dead
A dozen times or more.

Of course we know the gist;
He tells the maiden fair she 5s

Fourth age he comes home in the mora
And gladness fills his cup?

With sick friends sitting up.

His heir to interview.
And says: "My son?kerswat! kerswish!
This hurts me more than you!'
He next has leisure on ins nanm
And fills a jug with bait; i
He hoolcs a minnow, then lie swears ;
Ten pounds to be its weight. i
Last age, when lean and slippered
He finds his greatest joy.
In telling what perfection ruled
Tiie days he was a boy.

Faiss Witness Against St. Louis. !
Every day queries, come to the j
^-lobe-Democrat from different parts of !

;f trie alleged, extortion by the hotels
it St. Eauis. We liave answered
nany of these by letter. In all cases j
ye have said that the stories were j
vithout fourelation. Advances Have
>een made in some cases by Hie I10els,
as compared with the rates of a
nonth or two ago. In all cases the
:d varices have been slight. The t.csImoiiy
of any- of the many thousands
jf visitors to the city since the World's
"air opened will bear us out in what
vc say here.
Charges of extravagant prices by
he hotels have been made against cv)vy
city which, lias had an exposition,
riiey were made against Philadelphia,
Chicago. Nashville, Atlanta, NewOrleans,
Buffalo, Charleston and other
places which have had any sort of a
'air which attracted visitors from the
putside. Possibly in some cases the
iccusations were true. In general,
lowever, the real extravagance was
n the stories themeslves,. A year ago
he St. bonis World's Fair authorities
pbtained from the proprietors of the
lotels and lodging houses of St. bonis
i schedule of prices which they ' intended
to charge, during the Exposi:ion
iperiod. and these have ben kept
on hand for reference. In all cases
he figures were reasonable. Ir any
idvances have ben made upon those
rates, the World's Fair officers would
be glad to be informed specifically
ibout it. Hotel rates continue to be

capacity of none of the hotels lias
been reached. There will he room for
all the visitors who come, and for
many thousands in addition. The Fair
was a long time in preparation. One
of the things in connection with it
which had to be looked after was
housing capacity for the expected
guests. This was amply provided for,
as any visitor to St. Louis in the past
three or four weeks can testify. There
has been no extortion in the St. Lopis
hotels thus fax-. There will he none
during the Fair period. Room enough
is here for the entertainment of all
who may come, and consequently the
rates for lodging or board at any of
the hotels in St. Louis- are fabrica
