We mix in the great international
'jam; we crowd and push and rush
j and worry. And all for what?
I Over in ho grave yard yonder lie
the hopes, ambitions and dreams of
a thousand men who rushed and
worried, who toiled and struggled
only to find a narrow prison cell
where no hopes or thoughts or love
can come. Ami does it pay ? Ought
it to be the base metal of a fluctuat
ing commercial value of the priceless
coin of pleasure and content that we
poor mortals should strive to secure?

Chicago gave I'resident Harrison
an enthusiastic welcome M< " lav
The President had the opportunity
of being present at the opening of
the Auditorium, the grand building
in which his nomination for the
Presidency was made. The build
ing has since that memorable event
been completed, and is now a very
handsome structure. Chicago is
' quite proud of it, and she is also
proud of having secured the pres
ence cf President Harrison at its
formal opening. Her delight will
not reach full scope, however, until
she captures the world's fair, and
should she secure that, nothing will
enable her to properly spread her
self unless it should be the annexa
tion of what little of the State ofj
"Illenoy" still lies outside of the!
city limits. Notwithstanding the j
presentation of a bill in Congress.!
yesterday to have the fair held in
Washington, Chicago will -.till press
, her claims, and not without hopes of
success, either. The fact that of the
Congressmen who have expressed a
preference, the majority were for
Chicngo, naturally gives her great
encouragement. She is not, under
any circumstances, a city that is j
inclined to get discouraged easily j
when she is making a push for any
special point, and if energy, liberalij
ty and perseverance will knock the |
persimmons in the case, Chicago j
may be said to have the pole.

1 a new era accept as imperishable
the truths of the Declaration of In
