Onu of tho charming features of the. expo
sition Is tho largo liuinlicr of vlntus wliloh
it contains- spots from which ono limy
look forth and behold vlewH which en
tranco tho sense and delight tho i'jo.
Wherever ono goes nhoiit tho 700 acres of
tlm fair grounds such scenes are constant
ly unfolding themselves. Many tliui's lu
a day tho visitor Is tempted to patisonnd
drink In tho beauty of soino spectnelo
which had lillhcito escaped Mh observa
tion. This is one of tho tests of nrchltce
tut nl and landrnpoart. Nodcilgner could
be. expected to jilau vistas as a prlmnry
idea. That would bo mere secuc-pniiiting
and unworthy tho higher ait. Hut iu
Htieh a combination as this exposition,
where all cITort Is on mieh a largo scale
and there Is Htieh dependency of ono feat
uro upon another for excellence of olTeet, a
work that did not present charming vistas
would lack complete success. They aio
inevltablo incidents whuro thoru is truw
beauty lu tho massing.
Tho wealth of such views presented hero
is but another proof of.tlio commanding
genius which designed this work. Per
haps it may seem to you, dear reader, that
it is rather Into iu tho day for mo to en
largo upon tho outdoor glories of tho fair.
The aichltectural and landscape features
weie tho Unit things hero to bo described
iu tho public ptcss and iu tho illustrated
magalnes and weeklies. Hut let mo tell
you that until this month of June, this
month of freshness mul flowers, no ono
had o er seen tho Columbian exposition at
its best. 1'or tho llrst time lu its career it
is full blown and ripe.
Now it hai not only tho beauty which
voiduro and sunshino alouo can givoit,
but tho additional charm of masses of peo
ple constantly moving to and fro on both
land anil water. It is now an animate
landscape. Tho llguies are in tho picture,
ami, grand and impressive as it was befoio
tho people came, there is contagion iu
tho presence of n host of admit ers, infec
tion iu tho enthusiasm of tho multitude.
It Is no wonder to mo that half tho friends
I meet hero tell mo they put in their llrst
two or threo dnjs outside tho buildings,
roaming thiough tho park, riding over tho
placid waters of tho lagoon, realizing, or
at least endeavoring to do so, tho unpre
cedented grandeur of tho whole.
"Thogteatest thing in tho fair is tho
buildings which contain it," is an expres
sion which 1 have so often heatd during
tho past six weeks that it lias become trite.
That is tho way iu which people aro im
pressed. Tho majority of them aro dis
couraged tho Hist time they enter ono of
tho palaces for a look at some of tho ex
hibits. Tliis disappointment is not iu tho
interior show considered as a whole, but in
its magnitude, mid iu the oppicssivo
realization which overcomes ono at this
moment that ho can never hope to see, it
all. Then is so much of it it is spiead
over such a vast area ono can never go
through U section by section, alslo by
aisle, exhibit by exhibit, article by article.
Tlio utter hopelessness of tills task repels
at Hist. So it is that nlno visitors out of
ten remain but a short time iu tho build
ing which they may Hist lmvo entered.
They como back into tho open, tho sun
light and tho fragrance, and feast their
eyes upon tho ensemble. Hero is some
thing which they nru ublo to see, and sco
quickly, for it is a panorama of white and
green spread before their eyes.
Fascinating as tho outward show is at
a single glance, one must travel about for
many a day before thu full glory
of tho plcturu is impressed upon
him. Indeed, thu beauty of tho sceno, like
tins magnitude ot tho buildings, is somo-
Underneath them tho boats and gondola
nro Hitting, and over (hem stream ot
Ihuppy peoplo aro constantly passing. Tar
'liter along are (ho giceii ticcs and iho
How ers of tlm wooded Island. In tlm ex
licmo distance is tho great bight of iho
Illinois building and tho mum beautiful
dome m tho Art palace. Tho foreground
of this plctuio Is misty, for there tho foun
tains spiay tho air. Around tho corner of
Mist Machinery hall como tho spelling
strains of niiislc, 'J'lioslgliMltto from this
jjiot is encased by walls of ivory, four of
timgiealest and noblest buildings In tho
world Machinery, Agriculture, Klco
trlclty, and Manufnetuies ranging thctn
sches cither side the view.
There aro many such vista here, nd
ono never tires of them. Another is thnt
to bo seen looking south from thu rustle
liiidgo which crosses tho lagoon nt the
northern end of Horticultural hall. At
tho right is iv long stretch of water leading
down to tho richly-tinted Transportation

thing which "grows upon" every visitor.
Tills is to say, day after day your ailmiia
tion and your enthusiasm increase
through familiarity instead of diminish
ing. Tho llrst thing you know you are in
lovo with this spectacle, and like tho true
lover you eeo new lines of beauty in jour
sweothuait every time you meet her. Sup
pose home line, fresh morning you get a
glimpse of her head through a Mourning
rose lnisli in the gat den, You may have
Been tho head a thousand times before, but
this vista seems to endow tho white brow,
or tho golden hair, or the profile with a
charm which you had never befoio dis
cerned. You will never thoroughly appicclnto
tho exposition scene until you have had
homo such glimpses of it, till you have
feasted your eye upon its yistas. Stand at
the Colonnade, for instance, for a moment.
That is at tho southern cud of tho grand
canal. Tho C'olonnndo is of itself a beau
tiful structure. It is purely classical, and
looks as if it might have been transplanted
from Athens or Venice. Sometimes it Is
called "Thu Screen." Do you know whyf
Well, the sceno to tho north is Venetian,
in its architecture, its statuary and in tho
movement of tho gondolas over tho sur
face of tho canal. To tho south aro tho
live stock sheds and tho exercising amphi
theater. It would not do to mix the Vene
tian scene and the horso barns, because
ru are no horses iu Venice. Heucothu
Stand at the Colonnade nnd look to the

building, (ho only exposition struct lire
which is not ivory white. At llrst glance,
visitors do not like thu coloring of this
building. It seems gairish and Inconsist
ent with the surroundings, Hut like any
thing else- hero It worms Itself Into your
nlTcctlons. In a day or two your prejudice
against it is ovci come. A day or t wo more
and you aro cnthiisiastluoverlt, for It adds
a bit of warmth and color to tho scene
which only eniphasics tho whiteness and
Iho purltyof tho neighboring structures.
Hut this is not tlio xlstn to boseeufrom
tho bridge to which 1 desired to call J our
attention. Under your feet Is one of tho
gondola stations, and a number of the
craft aro at rest t here, t ho gondoliers bask
ing in tho sun and smoking pipes or
cigarettes iu tho most uiiroinautlu of pos
tmen. Just-beyond llestho leafy expanse of
Wooded island tho wooded island which
impresses me as much as an thing else iu
the exposition with tho genius of man and
t ho power of money. On! a ear or so ago
I saw this island when it was nothing but
a mass of black mud thioun up by the big
steam dredges. There weie no t ices upon
it, no verdure or How ers. No ono seeing
it then could liao foiesecu what it is now,
no matter how much he strained his
Imagination. Now it is a little paradise.
You smell tho fragrance of the llowers,
and watch the water fowl and birds at
their sports. Through the blanches you
dimly perceive the logs of tho hunter's
cabin, and over them your ejo beholds the
glorious dome of the Administration ,
building. Your view of It Is framed by
tho splendid facades of Klectrlelty and !
Mines. It is a scene which tlioiisaudsof
visitors pause on the rustle bridge to bo-1
Go down to thu peristyle and stand1
where two of tho gieat columns of that I
magnificent structure will frame you a
picture looking to tho west. The Golden
ltepiibllu lias her back to j on, and you
will note thu perfection of her massive
drapery. Though of stupendous size, she
has all thu grace of one of tho marble
Madonnas iu tho l'alace of Fine Arts. Shu
is looking iu tho same direction you tau
nt tho Administration building, which is a
thing of beauty, a creation that, completely
satisfies anil rests the uyo and tho soul
from whatever point it may bo viewed.
Your plcturu comprehends but a part of
tho basin, with its moving spectacle, and
perhaps but a glimpse of the. plaza at tho
right or left, along which thousands of peo
ple aru sitting or walking, witli tho
colossal horses or bulls nt the water's
edge to euablu your eyu in part at least to
realize thu vaslness of thu scene.
There is a vista which not many people
note, though it is sublime. Go to tho In
dian school iu tho southern end of tho
grounds. Stand on tho piazza there, and
look to the north. The sight-line carrlea
ou past vailety and magnlllcencu into m
perfect bower of aichltccturo and land
scape charms in tho far background. At
thu loft thu eastern end of Agriculture,
study onu of tho most beautiful buildings
man ever made. At thu right n glimpse
from thu middle ages, thu ancient Convent
of Lallablda. Near it thu classical Casino.
Hetween thu two, and a llttlu farther, tho
Golden Republic w 1th craft circling about
her feet. Then a long stretch of grandeur,
thu laku front of thu giant structure, vast
in expanse, nnd altitude, but symmetrical
as a babe, lu tho distaucu the vision is
lost amid a bank of domes, towers, mina
rets, and trees tho ciiciilaraunex of Fish
eries, tho varied elevations of the foreign
buildings, and, finally, bits of thu Art pal
ace, and tho many state buildings which
lie be) oud.
You will bee these and hundreds more
uiitianilug vistas when you comutothu
fair. And having seen them and delighted
your senses with them, you will not only
pardon thu enthusiasm of onu who has
been heiualoug tiinu only to linvo his ad
miration constantly iucieased, but will
thank him for directing your attention to
these, perspectives of perfection.
