OUR EXPOSITION LETTER.
Interest like the attendance increases
with the Exposition. Ever since the
opening of Mardi Gras , which of itseli
brought many visitors to the city , the
Fair has been receiving a daily increase
of patronage as , evidence by the funds
\vhich have grown into the thousands of
dollars every day.
The management is consequently
greatly encouraged , and everybody be
ing better pleased with the exhibition
are of course happy. In fact no rea
sonably liberal person can well be other
wise. It is true the public were deprived
of visiting the Art gallery until last
week on account of the delayed arrival
of the pictures , and the disappointment
likely to occur if the contents of the
gallery were not all hung and tastely
displayed before the doors were thrown
open. But while such is the case there
was enough to entertain and instruct
within the other buildings.
The Hoosier State , Prof. W. E. Oha-
ver , commissioner , is verv attractive
* * v
and catches the eyes of the visitors as
lie or she goes along its labyrinths.
The grain and vegetable displays are
first-class , as well as the manufactured
articles on exhibition. Minerals re
ceive attention as an industry of Indi
ana and coal is the chief. Several spec
imens of native woods are shown. The
United States Encaustic Tile company's
exhibit is good.
Prof. P. F. Hilder , is one of the
youngest commissioners within the Gov
ernment building , but makes * a very
) leasing display of the eifects of his
state. < 3orn is king in Missouri and the
specimens sent along the grains compare
very favorably to any "staff of life"
states. There is a handsome little pa
goda trimmed with broom corn which
shows off well. In liquors , wines and
> eerj especially the latter , the state pro
duces many fine brands. Manufaetur-
ng is to some extent carried on , out
side of flouring mills with which it
abounds. St. Louis however supplie
many of the articles on exhibition in
this department both agricultural and
This state so far to the northwest in
being represented C. C. Bryant , seems
to have a commissioner whose every ef
fort is in behalf of New Hampshire.
As a manufacturing state of much im
portance its specimens of goods attest.
Some 200 varieties of native woods arc
on exhibition , and "some samples of fine
granite and other building stones are
sent all the way from the quavies to the
Exposition. An adjustable invalid bed ,
and fine steel cutlery combine to make a
display not to be excelled. A shearing
machine for clipping sheep , horses and
mules is a most useful and ingenious
instrument. An excellent profile map
jf the state carved from and painted on
svood is to be seen.
Every day at the grounds looks more
spring like than ever. It is consequent-
y enjoyed by visitors from the north
nore than all others , and can hardly be

It is nice to take a ride on the river

Grounds. Then a better view of the
dty , Exposition grounds and surround-
ng country can lee had.
.The centre or strict "United States
lepartment" in the Government build-
ngis one of the strongest features of the
sxhibit. It reminds one of a visit to
