ollieials of III.' c.NpD-dtiou staiuliu in his
rear or grouped about him, will spealc
tho word and touch the button that
opens tho pites of the meat "White
City" to tho people of the civilized world.
Yet how short the lime between now
and the lirstnf May seems in comparison
with tho mouths and ears that have
fjonc since tho first spadeful of cinth
was thrown up in .laekson park! And
yet how much remains to be done in
these few (lectin).' days, what an oieati,
what iu avalanche, of litiishiiiK tutuhes
will ho needed to the end that tho lair
may be in presentable appearance on
the opening day! There isn't n single
onot.f the distinguished p'litleinen that
have been named by their respective
countries as royal and imperial commis
sioners that believes for a moment that
tho fair can bo put in shape to be seen
in the little time leimiininj,'. They know
all about American pluck and persever
ance and energy, ami they are enthusi
astic over these national traits. They
have, seen big depot structures go
up as if by magic, they have cast
their eyes skyward nml looked nt the
top stories of skyscraping structures
standing upon ground occupied but a
few months before hy a little cafe, in
which, perchance, they had cracked a
bottle of wine or enjoyed some of tho
toothsome delicacies of their native land,
and they have been piloted through our
oillco palaces where il.tidtl or 1.000 souls
labor day by day, ami they havo mar
veled thereat. Hut the "White City" is a
small Chicago in itself- not 10 buildings
or ','0. but 100 or inoru of them all still
in the hands of tho workmen, all more
or less incomplete in the matter of ex
hibits, somo still lacking giant machin
ery, some monster paintings, some yet
to be transformed into bijmis nml fairy
land, some yd I. u-king the very Hours
upon which the exhibits aiu eventually
To I he thinking American it is in ouu
respect worth twice the price of admis
sion that has been fixed for the com
pleted lair to get inside the gates at tho
present time. What bustle and confu
sion, what u hurrying and skurrying to
and fro. what u Niagara of uoiso, for it
reminds you of nothing so much as thu
distant roar of that famous waterfall!
Here two monster engines are creaking
and groaning. "We employed only one
of then- engines in raising the girders for
the last ricr bridge we put up." the en-
giinir tells us; "we are usiir? two hero
to do the work in half the lime." Hero
westril:e a inom-'.i r hoisting machine.
"It is the biggest m the country." says
the contractor, "but we couldn't get
along without it unless we lust time."
Over there across tlio lagoon powerful
steam rollers are going up and down tho
broad roadway, for even tho walks are
not yet in sliapo for pedestrians. A gate
behind us opens, and we move quickly
away ns we hear a warning shout, for a
freight train of a dozen cars, loaded to
tho last foot, has been shunted in over
the temporary track. If wo stay long
enough, we will see the unloading force
descend upon it like a swarm of locusts.
"Every consignment will be in its Re
spective building within a few hours."
So tho iimsti r of transportation tells us,
and when we smile incredulously ho telh
us that ho can Imudlu 1,500 carloads n
day with case.
Pursuing our way to tho south, wo
eomo upon a group uf buildings intended
for tlio different purposes of tlio admin
istration. Not one of them is ahovo tho
first story, but on each so ninny carpen
ters aro at work that they seem to fall
over ono another. All the same, we won
der how long it would bo before they
would be ready for occupancy if wo our
selves were to bo the occupants. Wd
nro not long left in doubt, for tho boss
carpenter tells us that they will bo de
livered over to tho department in 10
days, and that in five days thereafter
every partition and counter and ticket
window and desk and chair will bo in
place. And thereat, knowing something
ourselves of the usual dny's work of tho
average carpenter mid joiner and painter
and glazier and plumber, especially the
plumber, wo marvel exceedingly.
And out hero on tho Midway plai
sauce, whero countless sido shows aro to
crowd each other for tho spare half dol
lars of tho World's fair visitors hero is
more confusion confounded. Our senses
aro bewildered. Wo pinch ourselves and
wonder whether we are in dreamland.
What funny looking folk, what funny
sounds, what a babel it is! What a
world of novelty has been gathered upon
this one broad thoroughfiiie Arabs and
Cingalese, Eskimo and Chinese, Per
sians and Himalaya Indians, Laplanders
and South Sea islanders, Turks and
uautch girls, busy hands and busy feet,
all striving to tho Ramo end, and that end
to bo ready on tlio 1st of May,
And just as tho fervent prayer of the
righteous man availeth much, so will all
this phenomenal hustling prevail. It
will bo a coi'iploied exposition that is in
augurated by Orover Cleveland.

Miss Hello Pierson, a compositor on
he New Albany Ledger, has lately been
appointed st..to orgnnh'or of the I'edera
tiou of Labor for Indiana. A late num
ber of The Coiitier-.lournal contains a
delightful sketch of this young lady
Gallant Colonel Ileuii Watterson's pa
per has always a good word for women
workers. It is tho duty of Miss Pierson
In her new oillco to travel fiom town to
town in Indiana, call mass meetings
mako speeches and organize associa
tions of working people. From The
Courler-.lournal's sketch wo find that
Miss Pierson has pluckily supported her
self at typesetting since tho ago of 10
She now supports her mother also. From
setting type many a printer's ambition
has soared to prepatiug tho matter that
is put into typo, and this aspiration has
struck Miss Pierson too. She writes
considerably for the press on labor ques
tions, particularly those matters in
which workers of her own sex aro con
cerned. She expresses It as her firm
conviction that in the departments of
skilled labor women are bound to con
quer. So they mo. Hut ono statement
1 regret to find this brute, bright girl
making. It is that woman is woman's
worst enemy in the labor ranks, and that
when a girl engages in a work hitherto
done only by men she is hindered as
much as possible by her own sex 1 have
not found it to, certainly. 1 hao round
that tho deaiest, warmest, truest sympa
! thizers with working women aro women
tiiemselves. Perhaps in that funny but
rigid system of caste prevalent in small
towns a printer girl would bo looked
down on by lazy girls and married wom
en who call themselves tho social leaders
of tho ridiculous llttlo aristocracies they
always set up. but in tho great throb
bing life of the city people of intelligence
aro recognizing tho dignity and worth of
the woman who earns her own living
Miss Piersou's statement about worn
en's being against working women re
minds me, however, of an experiuticoof
my own in a certain Itiuny little town
It was u village of a few hundred inhab
itants. Fate and my own adventurous
disposition bad set mo down there. I do
termined to learn typesetting nt thooflico
of tho village newspaper. Two or three
women who regarded themselves of more
importance than tho Vauderhilt and
Astor ladies have ever seemed to do (lis
approved of the idea. 1 was waited ou
ami informed in duo order that the ladies
would never think so much of me iigain
r euro to "associate" with mo if I went
Linto that newspaper oillco. "Then I'll
bo sure to do it." I answered, and I did
It amused mo not a little that society
was going to sit ou me It always docs
amuse mo when anybody, man or
woman, tries to sit ou inc. Moreover
let iik say this for the coiulort of timid
souls who fear to do some honorable
work on which their hearts are set
for dread Mrs. Oruiidy will frown
Go bravely on. Do your chosen work
royally and splendidly, with all your
soul in it. Let nothing discourage you
and by and by you will make a success
of it. Then Mrs. Grundy will come to
you and lay her choicest laurels at yom
It gives one a feeling of pride mid tn
umph to know that every portion of the
beautiful building devoted to the worn
en's department at the World's fair was
designed by women, its construction su
periuteiided by women and its contents
arranged under thu direction of women
Wo do not hear tho expression, "n
woman of masculine intellect," so much
ns we did any more. Women have come
to that point in tho world's development
when) they aro allowed to have intellect
of their own.
Tho lato Mrs. F. C. Etting of Phila
delphia made a great success in the busi
ness of raising fresh eggs lor market.
She went into it so extensively that
she spent $1,V)0 in incubators, chicken
houses, etc., but sliu realized over 20
Iter cent profit ou her investment uiinu
ally. Don't fall into that lazy, dospienbte
way of saying that men can learn things
nnd understand things that women can
not. Say always, I can understand any
thing that a man or anybody else can.
Mrs. Harriet Strong of Whittier, Cul..
lHst year raised 2.000.000 plumes of the
beautiful pampas grass so much used in
decoration and sold them nearly all. One
million will adorn tho buildings of tho
World's fair, and she exported C50.000 to
Europe. Mrs. Strong has been tho first
person to grow these pampas plumes ex
tensively in North America. Formerly
they all camo from South America. Tho
last presidential campaign was lucky for
Mrs. Strong, 100,000 of tho plumes being
used in parades und decorations.
Mrs. Reazley, n Philadelphia woman,
invented tho cooperage machine which
turns out thousands of perfectly finished
barrels every day. She is also tho in
ventor of a life raft which may bo tossed
into the sea in any shape, but will al
ways right itself instantly and float safe
ly. It contains pockets which tho sea
cannot enter that aro always filled with
water nnd provisions for use of tho ship
wrecked. Tho subjects chosen for public lectures
by Miss Cora A. Henueson, graduate of
Michigan university and ineiulwr of the
Uliuois bar. show what women are think
ing about. Ono of her lectures is ou tho
annexation of Hawaii, another about
"Our Diplomatic Relations With China
mid the Kostrictinu of Chinese Immigra
tion." Tho Arkansas building at tho Chicago
fair was planned by a young lady, Miss
Jean Loughlsirough. whoalsohad charge
of its construction.
The Marquis of CJueenslKirry continues
his crusa lo in favor of a plurality of
wives. Hut the noble marquis is very
narrow, selfish and one shied in his views.
Ho is quite unwilling also to allow a
plurality of uusbauds.
