An immense wuuucu uui, uuunu
in iron, was recently found in Hel
einfors, in Finland, by workmen en
gaged in excavating in the cellar of
an old house. Upon opening the
box the men found that it con
tained a large parchment and a
.quantity of pioceB of iron of odd
shapes, Ucing unable to make out
the contents of the parchment, Miey
carried it to Mr. Rizcff, the nearest
magistrate, who found that it was
written by Father Suger, one time
minister to Louis the Seventh of
France. It was an elaborately
written treatise upon the use of
steam as a motive power, and fur
ther examination revealed that the
bits of iron wore numbered parts of
a rudiinciital but complete steam
engine. It is proposed to fit the
arts together and to exhibit this
'.oncer steam engine at the expo
ition. Chief Willard A. Smith, of the
department of transportation, is ar
ranging for a large number of
interesting exhibits. Recently he
has been paying special attention
to the marine section. In it will be
models of the rig of the old frigate
Constitution, the flagship of Nelson,
a caravel from Spain, the exact copy
of the Santa Maria, in which Colum
bus made his first voyage, canoes
of the native traders of the West
Indies, hewn from a single tree and
propelled by twenty-live paddles.
There will be models of such modern
racing schooners as the America,
Mayflower, l'uritan and Volunteer.
All sorts of stern-wheel passenger
nnd freight steamers for river navi-
tric piunaiu'os, naphtha launches,
etc., will be shown. Then there will
appear in their natural order
B'u-tches and brigantines.sloopsaiid

Dr. David . Guzman, the directr r
of the Costa Rica commission
which has in charge the exhibit of
that republic at the world's fair, has
prepared a very carefully detailed
classification and descriptive list of
everything which will be include I
in its display at Chicago, and printed
the same in a pamphlet, which has
been sent to all the officials of the
government, with specific direct! iib
for securing the desired articles.
The planters, merchants, artisans
and skilled workmen, in various
parts of that country, are taking n
great interest in the matter, and are
ulready at work in the preparation
of their products and illustrations
of their varied industries. The di
recter is n gentlemen of large exper
ience in other expositions, and is
besides an enthusiast on the subject
of a fine display for Costa Rica, so
that, with the active aid and sympa
thy of the government there is no
-douct of his sucess.
