Active as at this time last year though
the returns are much higher than
those of 1891. The building enter
prise, which has been a conspicuous
feature of the city during the lust
three years, it more marked than over
this summer. The frontago covered
with new buildings during the past
three years exceeds in the aggregate
100 miles in length, and at the present
rate of building the total for this yeur
alone will bo considerably over forty
five miles.
The railroad travel between St.
Louis and Chicago since the opening
fif tho World s Fair has been by far tho
largest on record. The five railroads
running day and night trains between
this city end the homo of the World's
Fair havo been compelled to put on
extra sleepers and other coaches and
rven to run their trains in sections.
This is partly the result of the very
large number of people living in Mis
•ouri who are visiting the Fair, not
once but frequently. At the sumo
time quite a majority of the increased
traffic is made up by visitors and tour
ists from distant States. The rail
roads have granted St. Louis propor
tionate rates from all points with re
ductions similar to those given tho
City of the World’s Fair, and lienee
there is a groat deal of travel from all
poinbi through St Louis, tourists pur
chasing tickets to this point and avail
ing theinvelves of the low excursion
raves whicn prevail for the ride across
the Slate of Illinois.
Quite an excursion party occupied a
Bpecial car on the first run made by
the new fast mail North last Sunday
morning. St. Louis has had the benefit
of the fast mail service west and south
west for several years, but until this
week there has been no early morning
newspaper and mail train to Northern
Missouri, lowa, Nebraska and Illinois
points. The train makes vory fast
time as well as close conneetion with
a number of roads at various points,
and it is expected the influence on tho
jobbing trade will be very marked.
Lieutenant-Colonel llatdorf has
been elected Colouel of the First Regi
ment of the Missouri Militia. Col.
Wetmore, the retiring foioucl, was
compelled to resign in consequence of
bnsine.es engagements, and he is suc
ceeded by an officer who lias served
since the time of tho Southwestern
strike. He was Lieutenant-Colonel
af tho Fifth Provisional L.-giment of
Mif-souri which took part in the
World’s Fair dedication proceedings at
Jackson Park last iall.
lJicyele riding is becoming so com
mon and popular in the city that it is
proposed to establish bicycle stables
in the down-town district in order to
accommodate the thou .anils of clerics
and others who ride to and from busi
ness on their wheels daily. The
wheelmen of St. Louis arc strong be
lievers in the value of co-operation.

Prorevsor Garner Getting Ac-qnatntod
With the Simian Lung’iini;:.
Professor Garner has written a letter to liia
brother In Auntmlla In which ho declares
that ho has “succeeded beyond his wildest
anticipations’’ In his experiments with mon
key talk In Africa. lie says: "I am safe on
tho coast, just reeking with quinine, the
proud possessor of a chimpanzee that can say
‘Tenahoc pakeha,’ which Is. you know, tho
Maori for 'good (lay, stranger;’ a gorilla that
knows about twenty words of I'eejccan, and a
female orang outung that Ims picked up

monkey words.
"Jlcre are a few spelled phonetically:
‘Achru,’ meaning sun, Are, warmth, etc.;
‘kukcha,’ meaning water, rain, cold, and Ap
parently anything disagreeable; ‘goshku,’
meaning food, the act of entlng. You will
see from this that It Is a very primitive lan
guage. There are not perhaps, more than
twenty or thirty words In it that I have not

Imagination becomes stupid when it at
tempts to grasp the da/.zllng splendors of
the Columbian Exposition. Contemplat
ing it, one sees the genius of civilization In
all nations; nature and art iu their highest
and most perfect development; everything
to.fascinate the eye and lend inspiration.
It can be said, indeed, that the one oppor
tunity of a life is given to see tho great,
world as it is. No such show was ever
gathered together in any age of tho past.
A vhit to it moans broader enlighten
ment and » knowledge of all tho people of
the earth. No person, therefore, can afford
to lot the opportunity pass without mak
ing an honest effort to see it. Despite the
faot that extortion is practiced in some of
the walks of Chicago the Fair can l»o seen
for a nominal sum of money, llallroad
rates will bo reduced nearly one-half sooner
or later, and it is possible for every person
in moderate circumstances to enjoy its
benefits and profit by the unparalleled ad
vantages for enlightenment. Higher civil
ization commands every person to make
sacrifices for the great Exposition.
Those intending to visit the Fair should
secure what Is known as the “Economic
Guide to the World’s Fair,” published by
Farnsworth, Cowing & Co., 807 Masonic
Temple, Chicago, 111. The price is fl.oo.
It will save strangers much time and money
in locating and securing rooms where
prices are surprisingly low. It can be
said. Indeed, that one can live almost as
cheaply as though he were under his own
vine and fig tree. Very many eitlzens of
the “Windy City” believe that there will be
something to live for after the Exposition
and are acting accordingly. This class
are throwing open their doors to the per
son of moderate means, and their hearth
stones and hospitality can l>o enjoyed.
Every person run save from flO to F-*»>. «*».
ccrding to the length of tueir stay m Chi
cago, by knowing wuat to do when rouen

visiting the Fair can see the wisdom of Im
mediately sending for one of these Eco
nomic Guides which is all the name im
plies. The great Fair can bo soon In all its
glory by rich and poor alike. Sons and
daughters of the farm can see the riehneis
of the tropics, nature in its grandest
beauty; tho world of arts, tha products of
the easel and the shops, and with them
almost everything that has ever been con
ceived by the mind of man, and,aside from
traveling expenses, at but llttlo more than
living ooet.
The Columbian Expoeition is teaching
the greateet lesson or life. For this end
nations intermingle and place their handi
work side by side. The products of the
European farm and garden invite inspec

of the American farm and rarden. Bo in

JULY 4th
Lon’s Heroism.
A Fourth of .Inly Story.
LIGHT on the even
ing of the second
of July five farm
ers' sons, from four
teen to sixteen
years of 11 go, stood
looking over a gate
that opened into a
cattle yard near a
1 urn in a New Eng
land town. One of
them wlii sll e d
through his fingers, and then called
“Lon! Len! II 1, Lon! Como out hero
Wo want to s<-o you.” Evidently tho
remark wns addressed to someone who
could bo hoard milking tho first noisy
streams into an empty pail, back some
where into the dark, half-open burn
collar, for tho noise of the streaming
milk censed. Presently a rather tall,
poorly clad boy, whose face was tanned
and whose hands were dark and hard
from work, emerged from the obscur
ity with a milk pail in one hand and a
three-legged milking stool in the other.
“llullo. boys,” l’.o said, with a droll
laugh which had a pleasant intona
Lon!" cried one of the hoys,
Horace Atkins, outside tho gate,
“we’re going to playugainst the Long
croft nine on the Fourth; and we’\c
got to beat them this time, sure. They
beat us last fall, you know. We’:o
challenged them to play down at tho
village iu the afternoon. There’ll l o
a big crowd there, for they are going
to have a celebration. Fo we mustgi t
nil our Thornhill boys out, and you
must go to pitch for us.”
“I'd like So go, Horace,” raid Len,
slowly. “But I n not in practice. 1
haven't played since last fa’ll.’’
“Oh, we know you, Len,” exclaimed
Ned Corliss, another of the boys. “Not
one of our follows can pitch like you.”
“Besides,” continued Lou, seeming
not to hear the compliment paid him,
‘ I haven’t asked hi n yet. I don't much
think he'll lot me go. He's been gone
lately n good deal, and the hoeing’s
got behind.”
“Let it stay behind!” cried another
of the boys, indignantly. “Ho never
lets you have a day for anything!”
Len laughed, a little bitterly this
"lie's n regular old tyrant,Len,” ex
claimed John Kcmmick, a third hoy of
the row outside the gate. "If my fathrr
drove me ns he does 3011,1'd ruii uway.
110 isn't your father, either.”
“I know he isn't my own father,"
replied Len; “but I guess 110 would
treat his own boy 'bout the same if he
had an}’.’’
“But what makes you stnnd it?”
asked John. “I .wouldn't. You can
get good places enough where the
folks'll use you well.”
“lie is pretty hard on me; but you
know he took me in when I was a lit
tle fell6w, lu; and Aunt Mary',” Eai.l
Len, some" lint reluctantly. "I’ve got
to think of that, you know.”
“What if he did? That's no reason
why he should drive .you night and
day, and never lot you go anywhere.*'
said Horace. “You ve a right to the
Fourth of July, anyway. Every boy
has. lie's 110 business to work you on
independence Day."
“That's so, Len!" cried Ned Corliss.
“Nobody will blame you if you stait
straight off that morning.”
“Well, i'll ask him,” sai 1 Len, with
another of his short, low laughs. “But
1 must milk!" ho suddenly exclaimed.
“I’ve got live cows lo milk, and it’s
after seven o'clock.
Len. hurried back to his milking, nnd
l.oys went away.
‘•We've got to havo Len, or tho
Longerofts will boat us, sure,” said
Ned Corliss.
"Well, I’ll bet ho won't get off,”
said Horace.
A few rods a'ong tho road they met
a thick-set, middle-ngcd innn, sitting
erect in his wagon, driving homo to
ward the farm. 111 passing ho gave
the boys a keen look in the dusk. The
boys knew Idm. He was Horatio Bur
bank—the “he” of whom Len and
they had been talking.
“I w sh Len would run nway from
him,” growled Ned,after he had passed
“But Len won't,” said Horace. “Ho
hasn't got spunk enough.
Len was milking when Burbank re
turned and put up his horses; and
when he brought in tho inilk his uncle
asked him, shortly, how the work had
gone on for the day.
“Wo didn't get the potatoes all
hoed,’’ replied the boy, reluctantly.
“Why, I thought you would finish
that piece to-dnyi” cried Burbank, im
“Wo worked pretty hard,” replied
Len. “But that field is witchgrnssy,
you know, and we couldn’t finish it by
thirteen rows.”
“Humph!”exclaimed his uncle, much
dissatisfied. “We must cultivate and
hoe the sweet corn to-morrow,” ho
added. “The potatoes will have to go
till next day.”
.‘‘The next day ia tho Fourth,” Len
ventured to meution. “The hired men
witl be off that day—and—and—" he
hesitated a Ultle, “the Thornhill boys

with all our work so behind l’mgoin'
to work, myself, all < ay.
“I know it’s behind," said Len.
“But the boys think they'll get beaten
if I don’t pitch for ’em; so they're kind
of urging me strong to go.”
“But \\lint's baseball, Len, beside
necessary work like ourn? That's all
such boys think. Thom’s the boys 1
met out here, I s'pose,” be continued.
“Here ten: ing you off! I'd like to put
inv boss-whip on ’em!”
’The next evening tho hoys came
around again, to learn whether Len
could go. *
“lie has given me another stint, and
a good big one,” said Len, with his
odd, low laugh.
“Let's go see it!” cried Nod Corliss.
They went across the field, and the
boys hastily looked the stint over.
“Two days’ work!” exclaimed
Horace. “That uncle of yours—well,
no matter what! course you can't
go—unless,” heudded, “unless we raise
a crew and lielj> you do it.”
“And 1 lint's just what vve had better
do!” said Ned. “For we must have
Soon after six o'clock on Fourth of
July morning there were eleven boys
in Selectman Burbank’s potato field,
hoeing wi;h all their might. They
had finished a row apiece, and had ail
turned to upon the remaining two
rows when Burbank appeared.
“lie's coming out to forbid your go
in’,” muttered Ned.
“I guess not.” said Len.
“If he does, let’s inob him.”
But Burbank had only come to say
to Lon that he must try to “string”
a late-planted acre of sweet corn with
twine, to keep off the crows, before 110
went away. “I'll put tho ball of twine
down here at the end of this row,” he
said, as he turned bade.
The hoys groaned after li!ra.
“Well, it wi 1 only take us a few
minutes,” said Len.
But as they came near the ends of
tho rows, Horace Atkins picked up the
twine ball, unobserved, end put it in
his pocket. So Len could not find tho
twine, nnd after searching awhile he
set off with the other boys, who im
patiently hurried him away to collect
their baseball outfit.
On their way to tho village Horace
slipped tho ball of twine into Lon's
pocket, where he presently found it.
lie suspected that a trick had been
played, but said nothing lie had
never disobeyed ail express com
mand of his uncle. But it was too late
to turn back.
The hall-ground was half a mile
out of tho vil’agc, near the river, a
little way from the bend above tho
falls which furnish the water-power
for the factories.
When Mr. Burbank found that Len
had gone off with the boys without
stringing the corn, he was angry; and
grew more angry ns he worked, alone,
that day. It seemed to him to bo
downright rebellion to his uutliority.
tio about the middle of the afternoon
he drove to the village with the inten
tion of fetching Len back home to
finish the stint.
But meanwhile an event had oc
The ball game was over. Len had
pitched a good game for the Thornhill
nine. The score stood: Thornhill
eighteen, Longeroft thirteen. The at
tention of the crowd was termed to a
“tub race” on the river above the
“boom,” as the long line of logs at
tach* d end to end and extending across
the channel above the falls is termed.
Besides the * on test ants in their tubs,
there were bouts on the water above
the boom. Among them was a bateau
in which one of the young lady school
teachers of the village was taking a row
wuli seven or right of her girl nupils
and two lads, aged ten and •thirteen
years. The older of the two lads was
the oarsman.
While they sat watching tho race
the bateau drifted against the boom.
Tho boy with the oars attempted to
push off. The old rope with which
the ends of the logs were fastened
parted under the strain, and the boom
opened. The boy, who was leaning
over the side of the boat as lie pushed,
fell overboard.
There was an outcry on hoard tho
bateau and from the crowd; but the
boy was a swimmer, and by a few
hasty strokes reached the boom logs,
where he supported himself.
Meantime the bateau drifted through
the gaj) in the boom, and before any
one took heed of the danger, was float
ing down toward tho quicker water
above the falls, which were only fifty
or sixty rods below.
Then, indeed, a sudden shouting and
tumult arose.
Some of the people called to the boy
in the boat to row back; others
shouted, “Bow to the shore 1” Every
thing was confusion, and the worst
confused person wns the little fellow
who, with one oar, could only pull the
boat round r.tid round.
The Thornhill nine had put on their
jackets, nnd were watching tho tub
race. Len and Ned lay on the grass
near the river bank Len with his hand
inf,his jacket j 9 diet, resting dly on
the baseball ami the twine ball beside
it. When the outcry rose they jumned
up together, and stood looking earn
estly at tho bateau for a moment.
“The boom’s parted,” cried Ned. A
“There's only that little chap aboard, .
nnd they'ro getting down toward tho 1
rapids!” exclaimed Leu. “Quick, Ned! .
Come on!”
Then as if running to “first” on n
short-grounder, ho sped down the road
beside the river.
An idea had Hashed into his mind—
nn idea suggested by the twine-ball in
his pocket and a reel of small rope that
he had noticed that morning, us they
cnino up the read, on tho platform of
one of the stores on river street. Bodg
ing past tho teams and the shouting,
excited crowd, he rnn to thisstore.
“Grab that rope, Ned Corliss,” he
shouted over his shoulder. “Grab that
ropo and come on We must get aline
across the stream ”
Without so mu ;h as a nod to the
proprietor, Ned unhesitatingly seized
npon the reel of rope and followed Len, 1
who had already run out on the pro- !
letting rooks, h few rods above the :
cataract. ,
“Run It off the reel and be ready to |
tie the. end, quick!” exclaimed. Lep. in
tones of intense, but. spppretecd, e«-

and knotted it, threw the twine-ball
buck on the land side to unwind it an l
then planting his feet firmly, and
shouting. “Catch, there!” to the"people
on the other hank, lie threw tho base
ball and its hamper of attached twine.
It was a splendid throw!
The distance across the deep, swirl
ing current was fully two hundred feet.
Gut the ball rose high sind spanned the
stream, falling well hack on the other
side. It was caught by a Longeroft
“Easy now! Don't break it!”shouted
Len. “Haul the ropo across!” For
Ned had already tied the twin-: to the
rope’s end. One inan who professed to
know said it was scarcely twenty sec
onds from the time Len ran out on the
ledges before they had the rone across.
Quickly as it was done there was
little time to spare, for the bateau,
turning and rocking, was now close
down 10 them. They tightened tho
line along the surface; and as the ba
teau touched it, the teacher iirst, and
then hand after hand of the children,
laid hold and clung toil.
Slowly now and cautious 1 y, with en
couraging cries. Len, Ned and a dozen
others hauled the bateau diagonally
up the bank to shore.
Such a shout as ror-e then! The en
tire assemblage of people cheered, then
gave Len three times three: nn-.l in
fact made a hero of him on the spot.
It was while trying to get awav from
these good people--for Len was a mod-
cst youth—that he first spied his Uncle
Burbank standing on the sidewalk,
looking gravely at him.
He was m-t an effusive man. how
ever, and merely remarked, “When
you are ready to go home to-night,
Len, you can ride with me if you want
Nor did 110 say much on tho way
home an hour or two later. Len, 0:1
his part, thought that perhaps some
apology for his apparent disobedience
was due his uncle. As they came in

Negotiations bctvre*-n the committee of the
Irish party arid the Cabinet regarding the fi
nancial clauses of the Home Rule bill are no*-
proceeding satisfactorily. Mr. Gladstone,
who Is largely In the hands of the permanent
Officials of *.be treasury In these matters and
Is himself notorious for being cxactlve In
dealings In behalf of the rtutc, has grow n
quite Intractable In the face of the arguments
ami appeals of the Irish. In fact the financial
proposals he intends to substitute for those
already In the bill instead of being Improve
ments are still less acceptable than the origl
hal clauses.

to the financial proposals of Mr. Gladstone.
Of course, If tbe Irish members express in
the House dissatisfaction with the financial
scheme, and declare virtually that they could
not undertake to carry on the government of
Ireland therewith, tbe bill will be dropped and
a ministerial crisis will follow. It Is to the
Interest both of the Irish factions and of gov

concede that the financial scheme shall only
be experimental for a number of years the
lUfhmen may swallow It tia very much the less

A remarkable exhibition was that of the

life and the wonderful rapidity with which
they got out tlielr engine and water-tower

solid enough under the conditions to which
they are accustomed, they arc soft and pulpy

hurst open.
Such fierce carnivorous fishes as exist In
the depths of the ocean are unknown at the
surface. There is the "black swallower*'’
which devours other finny creatures ten
times as b.g as itself, literally climbing over
Its victim, first with one jaw ami then with
the other. Another species Is nearly all

bottom. Its head alone protruding ready to

shark resembling a huge eel. All of these
abyssal monsters are black as Ink. Some of
them arc perfectly blind while others have

a horse which could walk, brought him to At

To visit the Fair nud obtain the best pi sdble result at the lenst pes i"le rx] ense, one

I* Is expected that each and every person who will visit the Fair knows the best route to

There arc thousands of people In the city of Chicago who are rolling so-called World’s
Fair Guides. From fifty to a hundred different kinds arc on the market, and each seller
claims his to be "Official and Authorized." Even the best < f them aie - * extensive i:i tlielr
work that they are of but liitie or no account. They contain from 10" to 800 or 400 pages,
giving a history of Cl iengo, n description of Mis banks and other
und Intended more t' advertise tlic city than guiding tbe people In what they want most.
In fact, every one of tin e • Guides point out thousands of v. at s to spend your money, giving
no space whatever to show ing how to see the great Fa:r at the least possible expense.
Thousands of these cumbersome books are thrown away dully.
Our Economic Guide to the World's Fair Is gotten up with concise and nccuratc Informa
tion to tliccnl of how to sec the Fair a id obtain the best possible results w ith the least pos
sible expense. It gives such information nt will enable you to walk out of the depot at
w hich you may arrive and proceed the tamo as if you were a resident of, and acquainted with
the city; a Guide that will direct you to that most favorable part of the city, where rooms
and board can be obtained at reasonable prices to suit nil comers; where you can walk Into

more expensive conveyances.
It also c intalns a map of the ground floor plan of 14 of Hie largest and principal build

days of valuable time.
The Economic Guide shows n complete map of the Fair grounds, which will l*c wanted
for reference a dozen times per day. The map shows each sml every building, numbered
and Indexed accurately and intelligently. One can hardly appreciate the value of this alone
without knowing what tlic grounds contain. There are 150 general buildings and sites. JMJ

buildings and site* In tie Midway l’laisance, all of which, by our Guide, can lie located

acre upward, the largest having 40 acres of floor space. Many of them, however, are untrn
portant, anil to know how to avoid these an l give your time to the best and most Interesting
exhibits will save you several days’ time and thereby save many d'dlarsdn money. There la
