The exposition grounds are the center of
attraction on Sundays for people ot alt
clntscs and hundreds of visitors ore to bo
ntcn walking to and fro on all parts ot the
grounds , Inspecting the progress that is be
ing made on the buildings and gaining an
understanding of the general arrangement ot
the various points of Interest. The construc
tion has reached a stage where thcro Is moro
than a parsing Interest In watching the de
velopment of the beautiful buildings which
ere betas erected. This Is especially true of
the main court , 'whero the magnificent pal
aces which are to form the principal portion
tion of the Imposing ensemble are rapidly
taking on form and even now give a faint
Impression of the grandeur and architec
tural beauty of the finished effect.
The weather with which a gracious Provi
dence has favored this section during the
last thirty dajs has served to hasten tbo
construction and the building contractors
have taken the fullest advantage of the op
portunity thus offered' ' to push the buildings.
The same sun which has made It possible
for the staff contractors to plaster the out
side walls of the main buildings has also
softened the frozen earth and made walking
rather uncomfortable , the mud being
strongly In evidence all over the grounds ,
except close to the north sldo of the build
ings. This unpleasantness , however , has liad
but llttlo perceptible effect on the number of
visitors. The people go to the grounds pre
pared to encounter the mud and no com
plaints are heard.
The Machinery and Electricity building Is
forging ahead rapidly and Is Hearing com
pletion , with the Indications strongly In fa
vor of It being the first building to be en
tirely finished. The carpenter work on the
outside Is finished and the roof Is nearly com
pleted. The carpenter 'work on the Inside Is
waiting on the plastering , which Is well ad
vanced. The staff contrjctors have nearly
finished the exterior of the building and are
putting up the ornamental staff work which
Is designed for tlio Interior. The hugo col
umns which support the galleries and roof ,
as welt as the smaller columns , tare to bo
covered with staff In ornamental designs ,
which will add very materially to the ap-
jicaranco of the Interior. The plastering on
the exterior of this building Is nearly fln-
iBhcd , Including the centraHpaVllion , which
Is to he crowned with a group of statuary of
lioroio size1. .All that reinaJuto,4)C done of
tbo exterior staSivBrk are "tho balustrade
firouihh tiio portico and a few minor details.
SOME PIIOMINENT FKATUHES.
The Manufactures and Administration
buildings bivo been In a sMto bordering on
completion for several weeks and llttlo re
mains to bo done on cither , but it cannot bo
eald that they are entirely completed.
The Mines building Is receiving consider
able attention at the hands of the staff con
tractors and the marble-llko exterior covering
Is rapidly hiding from vlow the rough frame
work which forms the skeleton ot the big
etructure. The staff Is nearly all In place on
the west wlag of the building up to the
cornice and llttlo surface is left for the
plaster flnlsh. On the cost wing the staff
io well advanced up to the cornice line. The
west cad Is practically finished and work Is
to bo commenced at once on the east end.
Somci of the staff decoration on the roofs of
the small flat domes on the corner pavilions
hn,7 been put In place nnd llttlo touches of
staff here and' thcro along the balustrade
uliovo the cornice glvo an. Idea of the beauty
of the finished building. The tall central
pavilion remains untouched , but the decora
tion prepared for It gives promise of making
this feature of the building tliD most promi
nent In decoration : as well as In , height.
The carpenter work on the Agriculture
building Is almost finished and the scaffoldIng -
Ing for tlio staff workers Is erected on the
front and ends. The placing of the sta.t
on tuto building will bo commenced this
morning end will bo pushed. The staff or
namentation Is completed and ready to bo
nailed In. place. Thcro Is little carpenter
work to bo done until after the Interior plas
tering Is finished. A few men are employed
In hanging doors and putting the window
sashes In place , finishing the stairways , gal
leries , etc.
The carpenter work on the Liberal Arta
building has been completed for two or threa
weeks and the building has been waiting for
> mo adjustment of the staff contract. This
contract was originally let to John L. Nel
son & Bro. of Chicago. They made no at
tempt to start work until about a month
ago , when a representative of the firm came
hero and made arrangements for putting up
u temporary shop , At the same tlmo ho re
newed negotiations , through a former cm-
ployo of the exposition , to transfer the con
tract to other parties. The other contractors
on the grounds refused to take the contract ,
but through the efforts of the ex-employo re.
fcrred to , Alexander & Son of Memphis , staff
contractors for the Government building' , con
sented to take It nnd the transfer was au
thorized by the executive committee. Two
men are : now at work In the staff shop pro-
parlag models for the staff decoratlaai and
the contractor states that ho will push the
work rapidly and will have the building com.
pctcd ! within a short time.
PUSHING WORK ON ART HALL.
The Art building Is beginning to show
the beauties which the architects' drawings
liavo warranted the public In expecting.
The cast section of the twin building Is
well advanced and the raising of the roof
trusses was commenced yeaturday morning.
The fildo galleries are Hearing completion
and already glvo a good Idea of the very
complete arrangement of this building. The
long timbers required for the west section
only arrived yesterday , having been ajjout
thrco months on the road. As soon as they
were received an extra force of men was
put to work and Superintendent Narwlck
promised that the building will bo pushed
to an early completion ,
The Government building Is gradually as
suming form. The sldo walls of tlio wings
are all erected and partly "sheeted. " Tlio

A srcall force of men worked all day yes
terday at the Armour plant. Bricklaying and
carpenter work was suspended , but laborers
were engaged In excavating for the founda
tions of the power house and tbo piers of
the bc-cf houses. The north , east and west
walls of the hog cooler house were com
pleted Saturday. This building Is 1GO feet
long and the saino number of feet Id width.
The walls are eighty-six feet high and the
Interior Is divided Into seven stories of
various heights. Work on the beef house
walls is progressing as well as could be ex
pected and already the north and east walls
are above grade. In addition to the brick
be'ag ' hauled from the Omaha and South
Omaha yards , a supply Is now being brought
from Council Bluffs. Building material wao
being received the same as on week days
and altogether , the grounds presented quite
a lively appearance. A portion of the pave
ment on the north sldo of Q street has been
fenced In for the purpose of preventing
heavily loaded vehicles from crowding' too
close to the curbstone. Whlto thcro Is no
danger of the bank caving In , tbe contractors
thought It best to erect the fcnco In ori'-v to

The feature of the council meeting tonight
will , It Is supposed , bo tbe Introduction of the
new gas ordinance. Tb's ' ordinance will bo
read for the first time , after which It will bo
referred to the Judiciary committee , which
Is composed of Barrett , Tralnor and Kelley.
It is known that this committee contem
plates a number of minor changes In the
ordinance , but as a whole It Is understood
tfcat the document fully protects the rights
of the city. The promoters , Flynn , Wyman
and Crc-sey ; , assert that they are sincere and
that thcro will bo no sell out and that the
plant will bo erected In this city. It Is
thought by these Interested that a gas plant
can bo erected for about $03,000 , but thooo
who have had some experience In the estab
lishment of lighting plants , say that It will
ocsfat least $100,000.
For the last day or two It has been whis
pered around that thla ordinance was likely
to be delayed In the committee , In other
words. It would bo held back for political
reasons. Whether there Is any truth In this
rumor will be shown by the time the com
mittee takes to go over the ordinance , the
provblcos of which are already well known
to at least a majority ot the committee.

The attempt to organize a humane society
has not met with the encouragement antici
pated. A meeting of those interested In such
work iwas called for Saturday night , but not
enough responded to perfect the organiza
tion and an adjournment was taken until
next Saturday night. This was the second
attempt , the first meeting have adjourned
on account of lack of numbers. A great
many claim that there is no need of such a
society hero and that providing ono was or
ganized It would only make trouble. It is said
by some that cruelties arc practiced at the
stock yards which should bo stopped , but
disinterested persons who visit the yards al
most dally assert that no unnecessary
cruelty is practiced In loading and unloading
To Kinmllzc the Tux.
Tlio city council will meet today as a Board
of Equalization for the purpose of equalizing
the tax in the Missouri avenue sewer dis
trict. This will bo the second session for
this purpose , as at the first sitting a number
of complaints were filed. Since then the city
engineer has changed the plan of making
the assessment so that each lot pays taxes
for the Improvement In proportion to the
benefit.In the plan first proposed each lot
In the district was taxed the same amount.
The property owners In this sewer district
appear to be satisfied with the new plan and
It Is thought that no complaints will bo filed
at the sitting ot the board.

from KlKhtccn to Three Huii-

A special service wag held at "the " Coctcllar
Street Presbyterian church last flight In
commemoration of the twelfth anniversary
of the church's foundation. The program
was largely In the hands of 4ho veteran
members who \vcro present at the dedica
tion In 18SG and have given the church the
aid of their counsel and purse In the Inter
vening years. The church was crowded with
later , but not Icsa cordial friends and
Us capacity of BOO was overtaxed. The
main address was given by the pastor , Ilcv.
J. M. Wilson , who was welcomed from a
long and serious Illness. Mr. Wilson has
been at the head of the church from , the
first and has witnessed the growth from a
membership of eighteen , to 375.
The first paper presented was by J. L.
Wclshans and treated of , "Tho Beginnings. "
The condttlono at that time were described ,
when the neighborhood was practically nn
unbroken wilderness and the old shot tower
was a landmark. Streets were ungraded
and at tlmca Impassable and sagebrush
was the sovereign ( vegetation. The mom-
iberuhlp of the llttlo church was formed of
flttecu from the Southwest Presbyterian
church , now extinct , and two from the First
church. For two years there was no pastor
and the services were sustained > by the visits
ot local and out-of-town clergymen. A
small edifice waa bullded which has been
enlarged from tlmo to time with such care
that the structure now appears as ono plcco
Other accounts were given by JIcsm.
Iluddy and Johnson , which included his
tories of the founders nnd of the church's
growth. The service was completed with re
marks by the pastor on the iresulls of faith
and labor. The rooms down stairs were
thrown open and the whole church was In
spected by the congregation.

Yesterday mcrnlng Rev. Edward T. Flem
ing , Ph. D. , of Nebraska City delivered a
sermon to tfio concregatlon of the First
P ' jiei'jan churcfli on the topic , " 'Convert-
Ing a Man. " The sermon was bised upon
the principle that the work cf conversion Is
the dutyof Christian and
every , only by per
forming it Is he doing his whole duty to
Tie preacher said that talcn'a were given
Individuals In this wcrld not for their own
enjoyment but that they might be expended
In the betterment of their fellow creatures.
Thin Is laid down as a duty by the blblo and ,
moreover , la generally accepted as true. As
an Instance , the preacuier said that men who
glvo up their own lives in rescuing others
are hailed as heroes. As a matter of fact , It
is generally held that no cue can do any
thing greater than to give his life for that
of another , but Hev. Fleming asserted that
there Is a still "greater " work that of conver
sion of sjvlng a man's soul. Ho grounded
this proposition on the fact that the soul Is
greater than the physical body and that Its
dangcra are greater. Upon death a body
loses all sense of pain , but If the soul passes
from the body without bolng tared it Is
destined to future punishment. From this
the preacher concluded theit no mightier work
can bo done by any man than converting a
Again it wag contended that by convert
ing a sinner the latter receives the highest
possible good , inasmuch oa the bible says
that such conversion covers a multitude of
sins. The prcuchcr reasoned this out by In
dicating that upon conversion regeneration
Is jieca-sary. With regeneration the motive
power In a lifetime is changed and with a
change of the motive power a man cannot
do the 'tihlnps ' ho may have done In the past.
A man of vice , unconverted , planned to sat
isfy his appetites ; converted , ho Is socking
to curb them and to obey the moral laws
laid down by the Supreme Doing. Moreover ,
the good from a single conversion Is not con
fined eolely to the nun converted. Tao In-
llucnco of the conversion , the preacher eaid ,
will extend Infinitely , Just as the throwing
of a pebble Into a pool of water will send
ripples to Its outermost edge.
"Every Christian can do tfao work cf con
version , " continued the prc-acncr , "if ho will
faold constant communion with the Creator ,
If ho will obey the precepts laid down in the
bible , and It ho will labor under Kio guid
ance cf God. It Is necessary , however , that
ho should work continuously. In his every
day business llfo ho must undertake no
transaction which will bring derisicn on the
church , however much of wordly gain iie may
lose. In all his conversations ho must talk
about conversion , as men talk of the Klon
dike , of the change of fashions , of the fluc
tuations of the markets and of any other
Interests. Then , too , he must have sympathy
not of that character whlc'J will permit him
to look after only those In his own station
but a sympathy like that of the Savior ,
which descends to the lowest. By following
out such a method only will he bo perform
ing his whole duty. "
The preacher also combated tlio frequent
complaints of Christians tfoat tlielr efforts
lei the week of conversions would bo too
weak to bo of any account. Ho Insisted that
the duty of conversion was laid upon''every
Christian , and ho must engage In It to the
extent of his powers. It Is Impossible to
tell hojv powerful the result of the weakest
effort may become.

Ilnrtlcnltnrnl Society ,
At the meeting ot the Strtto Horticultural
society , bald In Lincoln last week , Lewis
Henderson of ttilsipltr delivered the follow
ing address , selecting for hla subject , "Cut
Flowers : "
Our first acquaintance with cut flowers
la nhcn , In childish Rico , we pull the blos
soms from their stems , wherever wo may
find them , whethcr-lt bo from mother's choice
lioiifo plant , the garden flower bed , the
blossoming rcas or squash vines ot the
kitchen garden. Nothing attracts tbo atten
tion of young childhood earlier , nor delights
the Infcntllo heart more , nor causes the
young cVes to eparklo with moro radiant
joy than the flowers. As soon as she can
toddle out Into the garden or fields , the
llttlo ono ot three summers sees the world
of flowers scattered at her feet , and gather
ing hands full ot them , will throw them ,
with Innocent delight .upon the flcor nt the
feet of mother or grandparent , as an offerIng -
Ing ot childish love.
From childhood's sunny morning to the
mellow light ot Hpo old ago flowers nro the
tokcno of love , the emblems ot Innocence
and tbo ministers of happiness. Friendship ,
love , congratulations and condolence are most
fittingly and delicately shown by offerings ot
flowers ; and cut from their parent stems
ttiey ocem to cxhalo a rarer perfume , ns
they nro carried Into tbo sick room , or adorn
the brldo in her beauty or cling , entwined
with smllax , to the broken column of some
emblem of condolence and love.
To you gentlemen who go through the
dally routine of arranging floral emblems to
bo laid on tbo still breasts of friends ,
parents and children , who send boxes of cut
flowers to hospitals and sick beds , and to
the halls of festivities , I do not need so
much to speak. But to you who have most
to do with tlio raising of shrubs , fruits ,
graocs , berries , and gardens , to you who are
hard pressed during the whole ot the busy
season of the year , when flowers grow In
their richest and rarest profusion , to you ,
gentlemen , I would epcak of tbo virtues and
value of flowers In your own gardens and
homes. They are not only a luxury , but
they are a necessity ; they are not alone or
namental , but they arc ministers of virtue
The hard experience of llfo soon enough
hardens our heart , ns It toughens our
muscles ; but wo would bo happier , retain
our youthful vigor and beauty longer and
llvo to a sweeter , brighter and moro ad
vanced old ago if wo drank In more ot the
sunshine of heaven and beauty of tbo earth ,
by which God 1ms surrounded us.
Men are now living .longer , on an average.
than they did 100 years ago. A generation
then was about thlrty-threo years , while now
a generation Is thirty-seven years. No doubt ,
ono-of the causes of this longer llfo is that
wo oo'w live a happier , moro social life
I'aan formerly. Everything that IB sweet
and beautiful makes llfo happier , and there-
'iCeep ( that old "swcobhcart" of ten or
twenty years ago young and beautiful. Keep
the wrinkles from Tier face ; keep her eyes
bright and sparkling as tbe girl of 10 when
she te CO by filling her soul and heart with
Joy and sunshine all along through life.
Osrner off a llttlo plot In the garden , care
fully fenced In from the cattle , pigs aid
chickens especially from the chickens
spend 50 cents to the spring for a few pack
ages of flower seeds ; let the hlrodi man
spend an hour or two right In the busiest
tlmo of spring and summer digging ana flx-
Inc up your wife's flower garden , or do it
yourself , which would bo better. You will
find the expense saved a hundred times in
doctor's bills alone If I must appeal to the
lowest sldo of your natures besides keeping
the roses In that dear face , as well as keep
ing the Joy In your own heart.
If you have a daughter let ocr have a
flower garden. Spend a dollar for flowers
and seeds for her , cnocurago her In cutting
the flowers and when , she has brought u
bunch of them and.jjlaccd them In real ruutlc
fashion on the mantleor the dining table
pralso her and tell her how beautiful she
Is making' the eld home , . The- town arid city ,
and the smart young city chap .will have
llttlo attraction for-ctho fresh-young , beauti
ful country girl wihoso homo Is radiant with
flowers in vuses and pictures on the walls
and responsive love In the hearts about tor.
Her heart will rot bo hungry and unsatisfied
when eho Is surrounded by these beautiful
Finally , let mo say , I bellevo there is noth
ing from which wo can read mere of tfro
loving thoughts of God than from Iho flow
ers , for
The world Is full ot rosef ,
And the roses full of dew ,
And the ( lew Is full of God's love
