Mur nnd other lienvenly bodies lnthoclec
trlo ncarch-llghts w lileh throw out hrilllaut
streams of light from elevated jilaci'n. It
has n solar system, nnd tho center of this
system, tho center of light, power ami
energy, In thommnmnthhori7ontnl engine,
which 1m the king of till engines nnd which
stands In tho center of tho 1'iilnco of Me
chanic. Arts. Today this monster wan
lj lug still. A do.en or mere of his asslst
imtn, each 11 lesser monster, wero furnish
ing nil tho power needed during tho hours
of sunlight. It wan an hour of rest for
tho hlg fellow, nnd whllo ho rested 11 very
pretty scene occurred. Standing iienrthe
biiim of tho foundation which supports tho
main shaft nnd tho great wheel wan 11
fond mamma nnd her pretty llttlo daugh
ter. They looked at tho belt which rutin
from tho thirty-foot wheel to tho dynamo
which has power enough to electrocuto a
wholi! city full of peoplo wero its currents
turned upon them. This belt is seven or
eight feet wide, nnd 11 cnrrlago and pair of
horses could ho driven ovur It without
dnnger of collapse.
Tho little girl In some wny had gotten
the notion into her pretty head that sho
wanted to walk out upon tho hlg licit.
Her fond mamma, over indulgent, or in
spired by some fancy of tho imagination,
Indorsed tho idea and appealed to tho en
gineer in charge. Would ho object t
Would it do any harmf Tho good-natured
master of tho monster looked at tho pretty
lit t lo girl nnd tho comely face of tho
mamma, mudo more interesting by the
soft pleading words and tho appealing
eyes, and had It not In his heart to say no.
So ho took tho waif In his arms, lifted her
upon tho glnnt belt, nnd fearlessly sho
, tripped out along its broad pathway.
1 Quito 11 crowd was present t hero Is nl
1 ways 11 crowd around tho big engine,
I whether It is in motion or not and tliey
applauded with clapping of tho hands.
I "A littlo chlhl nstrldo tho monster,"
1 commented a visitor whoso long hair and
soulful eyo bespoke tho poetic instinct;
"an angel standing upon tho center of tho
solor system. "
A few hours Inter tho breath 01 tho
steam was let Into tho lungs of tho mons
ter and tho great wheel was set in motion.
If ono careil to follow out tho simile of tho
solar system with this as its central life
giving agency ho wotdd havo to let his '
imagination travel first through tho un
derground conduits which run all through
tho exposition grounds, carrying tho hun
dreds of electric cables and tho magic cur
rent in every direction. At night he
would find this current manifesting Itself
in myriads of lights on tho tops of tho big
buildings, in live enormous coronas under
tho roof of tho tent of glass and steel

brilliant arcs around tho central court, in
an incandescent donio over tho Horticul

tho top of tho crown-liko Administration
building, in tho sun-like search-lights, to
bo seen nearly across Lnko Michigan, and
In a thousand ways which would unfold
themselves at evory step about theso mar
Tho truth Is, this electrical display Is,
next to tho palaces and tho architectural
effect, tho most brilliant and entrancing
tiling in tho exposition. If there wero
nothing hero but tho big buildings, their
ornamentation of statuary, their water
fronts, anil the electricity, tho show would
bo worth traveling across tho continent to
see. There is not a single feature In which
1 tho exposition is a disappointment. It is
1 strong In every department, but tho elec
' trical display partakes of tho marvelous,
I the. sublime, the Incredible.
1 Naturally, It is a tiling which must ho
seen to bo appreciated. You never saw an
artist who could paint the constellation of
tho heavens, did you? You nuver knew a
1 writer who could descrlbo tho glories of
1 tiie llnuamentf No. Nor could artist or
I writer, or both together, glvo you any
thing Hko an adequate idea of the beauty
of tills electrical manifestation. Tho most
that I hope to do is to impress upon you
the fact that it is a spectacle which evory
innn, woman and child in America who
can manage to do so should see and enjoy.
I sincerely advise sacrlllco of other things,
of home pleasure, of prollts in business, of
a share of savings, of time devoted to trails
or school, In order to como to Chicago.
And if you have but two days and a night
to spend here, let one day or a good purt
of it be put in at tho conter of this solar
yiitein, whore tho city block of boilers
generate tho steam that moves tho many
monsters, where tho hundreds of miles of
wires are impregnated with tho current
which produces all theso wonderfully
Spend n night in beholding tho brilliancy
of tho scene about tho central court and
within tho Klectriclty building. See the
mammoth pillar of lire, composed of thou
sands upon thousands of electric lights in
various hues and wlthalternatlng currents
which produce elleets beautiful beyond
one's dreams. See tho lightning arrcxtors
1 electrical posts with broad, spreading
arms up and nlontf which tho current leaps
with magio strides, leaving behind it 11
counterfeit representation of tho lightning
of nature, only more vivid, infinitely mom
beautiful. See tho Assyrian temple,
illuminated by innumerable electric lamps

this. Nor is it true that 0110 must spend a

of pride, ono may make his expenses just
what ho can all'ord to pay. For Instance,
lie may go to 0110 of tho llrst-elass hotels,
cither those of tho city proper or of tho
World's fair district, and live at. the rato
of from f8 to fcNl per day per person. Or
ho may go to tho more moderate houses
nnd obtain rooms at prices ranging from
( to 1 per day per person, mid take meals
wherever ho likes at a cost varying from
II. U) to fSi per person. Iletween theso
limits 0111 should be able to satisfy him
self. 1 It stands to reason that living at tha
hotels w ill bo more expensive than in pri
vate houses. Tho hotel keepers represent
Inrge investments and largo expeetat Ions.
They want big prollts. Hut in thousands
upon thousands of private houses thern
are rooms to rent, with or without meals,
nt prices which every visitor will bo able
to please himself with. In looking nlxiiit
I havo seen plenty of good, comfortable
rooms within a short distance of tho fair
gates, which may bo had at a cost of $1 to
(l.W) per person per day. Ily exercising
economy these visitors may get their meals
at ll.WI more per day. Of course they
will havo to keep away from tho hlgh
priccd restaurants, and should take as
few meals as possible within tho grounds,
where everything Is more expensive than
It Is on the outside.
A friend of mine in Ohio, a man who
has but a moderate income and who is a
prudent lluancicr, wroto mo a few days
ngo as follows: 1
"Wo want to see tho fair, but wo can't
nfford to go to Chicago to bo robbed.
Won't you look about for mo and sen what
you can do in tho way of accommodations '
for myself, wlfo and two grown children?
lam willing to pay reasonable prices: for,
comfortable, cleanly accommodations, but
economy is a consideration with a poor
man such as I am. Wo might leave tho
children at home, but rather than to do
that I shall stay at homo myself."
I was glad to go out and see what
could find for my friend. I applauded his
practical spirit, and also his determination
to bring the children along. If a man can
afford to come to the fair at all ho should
to bring all of his children who are old
enough to appreciate tho show and to
prollt by It as ono of tho grandest educa
tional institutions ever organi.ed In tho
world. After a day's search 1 reported to
my friend as follows:
"Havo found you two nice rooms in a
new house, well kept by a woman of good
character, about half a mllo from tho
gates of the exposition. There are two
beds and you may have a cot or small bed
also If you like. There is running water
in the rooms, and a bath and other con
veniences aro in tho hall adjoining. The
house has a porch and a pretty yard. For
these two rooms you will pay during the
ten days of your stay ft u day. You may
have breakfast in tho house and I am
sure from what I saw of the woman that
tho breakfasts will bo satisfactory at fcj
per day for your family. A light luncheon
at tho exposition and dinner at a restau
rant near your rooms will cost jou for tho
four persons about II. 125 f r the luncheon
and fcj.50 for the dinner. Your admission
to the fair w ill be V a day. If you add to
this about t'-i a day for incidentals, admis
sion to the specialties in tho phiisaucc,
catalogues, rides 011 tho intramural rail
way, etc., you will Unci your expenses foot
ing up about fit a day dcring yourtay
heio. Hy economy you will bo ublo to cut
this down f li or til, or if you feel disposed
you may make it two or mine dollars
This is for it party of four, and it will ho
observed that tho expense is a littlo morn
than fil per day per person. As a result of
this inquiry I unhesitatingly hay to in
quirers that if they will bo careful of their
expenditilles they may como heio and stay
at an expense of fil a day each, though in
order to no this there
