A". (J. Farmer.
A powerful attraction to home is the
cultivation of a spirit of neatness and
elegance throughout ail its arrange
ments. The eye scarcely ever wearies
of a heaudful prospect, or a pleasing
picture. The aspect of a home should
rescmhle the latter; it should tell if
own tale ; ks atmosphere should breathe
of comfort, and its quiet, simple orna
mentation delight the eye. There is a
brightness about a well-kept hoaie
wnich neither wealth nor magnificence
can impart, unaccompanied by ta.-te.
To keep best rooms, or best anything,
to be used only for visitor.-' accommo
dation, is not t lie w isest policy for a
wife to adopt ; on the contrary, com
.,. contrasts too greatly with daily
living rooms, and suggest unpleasant
comparisons. Xeatncss and elegance
should go hand in hand ; one cannot
exist without the other ; but it must
be neatness far removed from formality,
,P'' elcanee independent of costliness
fusion. Lvery arucie siiou.u
to look regretfully over the smutty nans,
hit alas, for Sherman's awful march to
the sea ! To-day the city boasts of a
population of more than a hundred
thousand, with as clean and well shaded
streets, as beautiful flowers and a mag
nificent residences as any city in our
'and. The arrangement of the city is
cry irregular, suggesting the work of
nature rather than that o! art. Lack
if time forbade my vi.-iting any of the
parks or public buildings, but they are
-aid to compare favorably with the city
in general ; which is saying enough.
Of course the exposition has the right
of way now. The grounds are well laid
off in a two-hundred-acre enclosure,
about three miles N. E. of Union depot.
There arc twelve main buildings, not
to -peak of the various side issues, such
a.- the streets of Cairo, Japanese Village,
China Town, Oerman Tomi, kc, i'cc.
L'ho whole affair presented a very in
complete appearance when J was there,
only two of the buildings having been
completed. All the others were in a
more or less unfinished condition, but
i he work was rapidly progressing, and
i suppose it is much better by this
time. The day I spent there was the

deal of good in bringing about a better

mutual appreciation between the two
great sections of our commonwealth.
