All Executive Departments Send
Treasures lo the
* World's Fair.
Display Installed In the' Largest Gov
ernmental Exposition Building Ever
Constructed Precious Docu
ment ? Relics of Famous
i * Statesmen and Soldiers.
' The United States Government build
ing at the World's Fair occupies an
elevated site just south of the main
picture of the Exposition. The great
central dome of the Government build
ing is visible from the very center of
the Fair , looking across the picturesque
sunken garden that lies between the
Palaces of Mines and Metallurgy and
The hill slope in front of the Gov
ernment building is terraced with
broad stairways almost completely
covering the slope. The building is SOO
feet long by 250 feet wide and is the
largest structure ever provided at an
exposition by the ftderal government.
It is distinguished from all the other
large buildings at the Exposition by
the steel truss construction , the entire
roof being supported by steel arches ,
forming a splendid domed ceiling.
In this building are installed the ex
hibits of all the executive departments
of the government. The building is a
vast storehouse of an endless variety
of treasures dear to the heart of every
true American. Precious documents
are to be seen here , and the autographs
of our great men of the past are on
display. Relics of famous statesmen
and soldiers , carefully preserved
through generations , are exhibited.
Each governmental department has in
stalled an exhibit showing its official
character and mode of operation.
Entering the Government building
from the eastern end , the visitor sees
at his left.a railroad post-office car.
This is not a mere coach standing idle ,
LOUISIANA PURCHASE MONUMEiT , WORLD'S
but-is one of the most Improved mall
cars , in which men attached to the
United States railway mail service are
actively engaged in "throwing" the
mails. Here you will see. the postal
clerks at work , just as they work while
speeding along a railroad track.
A curious collection of old time rel
ics from the post-office museum at
Washington illustrates as no verbal
description can do the crude begin
nings of the postal § ystern. One of
these relics is an old fashioned stage
coach that once carried United States
mails through a portion of the Louisi
ana purchase territory. President
Roosevelt , who once inspected it , ex
amined with a rough rider's interest
the bullet holes which stage robbers
and. mountain brigands shot through
its stiff leathern curtains. Generals'
Sherman and Sheridan and President
Garfleld rode in this old coach during
the strenuous days of frontier life.
Among the collection of documents
showing the primitive postal methods
in vogue in the early days is to be
seen the old book of accounts kept by
the first postmaster general , Benjamin
Franklin , all written by hand. There
is a rare collection of stamps , includ
ing ancient Filipino , Porto Rican and
Cuban stamps. The postoffice depart
ment's exhibit occupies 12,409 square
-Across the aisle , at the right , is the
exhibit of the new Department of
Commerce and Labor , occupying l.OGG
square feet This exhibit shows what
the new executive department stands
for and what it is accomplishing. Mr.
Carroll D. Wright , United States Com
missioner of Labor , had charge of the
preparation of the exhibit Charts ar
ranged by him , showing the rapid
growth of the nation in agriculture ,
arts , manufacture , population , etc. . are
of special interest to sociologists and
all students of the labor problem. The
Census Bureau exhibit is made in this
section. It shows the tabulating ma
chines used in compiling the census re
ports. The Lighthouse Board , also op-
vrating under this department , shows
Hie great revolving lenses in light
houses , wilh other interesting appli
The space in the projecting north
west corner of the building is devoted
to the Library of Congress. The edi
fice which houses this library at Wash
ington is held by many architects to
be the most beautiful building in the
. Its interior decorations , by El
mer Ellsworth Garnscy. furnish one
of the chief delights of a visit to the
national capital. A large model of this
splendid building is a feature of the
exhibit The decorative features of
the interior are reproduced in their
The next exbibit on the right hand
side of the central aisle is that of the
Interior Department , occupying 11,702
square feet In this large space the
visitor finds so many things of com
pelling interest that ho is loath to
leave. The Patent OQice exhibit be
longs to this section. There are mod
els of many machines that have borne
an important part in the development
of the nation's industries. The earliest
form of every device of human inven
tion , so far as possible , is shown here.
For instance , you may see the actual
sewing machine that was the first con
trivance of its kind every constructed ;
it was patented in 1S4G by Elias Howe.
The first typewriter , patented by G.
Thurbcr in 1S42 ; the model of the first
cast iron plow , patented by Charles
Ncwbold in 1797 ; the first screw pro
peller , invented by Robert Hook in
1GSO ; and many other "first" things
are to be seen. The model of Abraham
Lincoln's celebrated device for lifting
steamboats off shoals is shown here.

Ei , ht months a o Iwas so ill
that I vraa compelled to lie or sifc
down nearly all the time. Sly
stomach "was so veak and up t
that I could keep nothing on it
and I vomited frequently. I
could noturinafce7ithcut _ great
pain and 1 coughed so much that
my throat ana lun -were ra\r
and sore. The doctors pro
nounced it Bright'a disease and
others said it vaa consumption.
It mattered litth to ma what
they called it and I had no de
sire to live. A sister visited mo
from St. Louis and asked mo if
I had ever tried Y ine of Cardui.
I told her I had not and she
hought a bottle. I believe that
it saved my life. I believe many
\vomoa could save much suffer
