One of the very Interesting features of
tha Omaha Corn exposition mill be the
splendid moving pictures and stereoptlcon
views. These pictures, taken from the
middle west and especially .featuring
Omaha, the Union Stock yards and the
packing houses, era splendid reproduction!
and cannot fall to .interest everyone.
Among these pictures Is the reproduction
of the largest cold storage warehouse in
;lie west. It will be easily recognized, as
"he warehouse bears an Immense algn. the
utters of which are thirty feet in height
nd snell out the well known "name of
Armour. This Is Just a sample of the big
way In which Armour does business.
This warehouse Is eleven atorlea in
height, Is nearly one block seiunre and
contains C00.000 square feet of floor space.
It Is. however, hut one coiner of Armour

the preparation of the many food products
which are obtained from the animals
slaughtered therein. Your attention is
especially called to the ca-ra and cleanli
ness exercised in all departments and
processes of manufacture. i
Tou will note one of the three plcturea
shown In connection with this article is the
photograph of the United States govern
ment Inspectors on duty at the Armour
plant. These men are all eminently quali
fied for their work, and It Is under their
personal direction that the Inspection is
carried on, from the ante-mortem exam
ination to the microscopic tests on the
various parts, of each carcass. When these
inspectors affix their stamp reading, "U. 8.
inspected and Passed," it Is an absolute
guarantee to the consumer that the pro
duct is made from clean and wholesome
moats. No product can be used for food
uiiliss this stamp Is affixed, and as the
stamp In placed on many different parts
of each carcass, It Is not a difficult mat
li rfor the .consumer to ascertain whether
or not he is getting inspected meats.
One of the other pictures shown Is that
of tho Inspecting and branding of the
celebrated "Star" Hams and Dacon. The
"Star" brand Is the pride of Armour St Co.,
and is not used except on goods of the
highest quality. To give you an idea of
tli careful selection of "Star" Hams and
Bacon, there Is but one hog out Of every
fifteen good enough to produce this brand
of meats. The hog must be young, prop
erly fed. In the proper condition, and Just
the right slxe. Tills, In connection with the
wall known fact that no market gets better
hogs than South Omaha, will give you an
idea aa to tha supsrlor qualities of Ar
mour's "Star" brand meats.
After the "Star" meats have been se
lected, then comes the process of curing.
It is a superior treatment, resulting from
Ilia many years of Armour experience, and

luncheon at one of the gayest uptown res

North American Review, who had been a
classmate of his at Edinburgh university,
called for him at the old Everett .house,
and he came downstairs to go with us In a
fancy tweed suit and a scarlet scarf. I sup
pose there was not another man In the city
that day who looked so little like a cleric
as he did.
We boarded a car and put htm into the

ourselves until the shrillest vole I ever
heard said: "If you want to lean on any

we were shocked and stared Into one an

untidy, vlnegarlsh. waspish woman s-a;ed
next to Watson. "Did you speak to us?" I
It repeated the remonstrance even more

at her destination, flounced out of the car,
