After all complaint have been made and
mite lung about the World' Pair, tt to
probable tbat tbe question will he asked bj
ry the average American i "How shall I see
?" What thing are good to upend a long
fma oriT, what should be merely glanced at,
md what ahonld be skipped entirely. In the
init place, say the New Vork Port's Chicago
tnrreepondent, the general advice may be
riven to keep away from the Midway l'lal
nee until the end of your stay, on the ram
principle that more solid food should precede
ieeaert. Once within that fascinating side

lot going anywhere else.
The first thing necessary for a visitor to
lo is to get the general effect of the arehlteo
nre and the grounds . This I heat accom
plished taking the Intramural Railway, aa
levated road which run Inside the fence of
the Park and takes In the complete circuit of
the Pair grounds. The tare is only ten
(wots, and the cars are comfortable and thus
far have not been crowded, hut the lntram
aral doe not afford one a eattsfsx-tory look
at the lagoons and the basins, and to accom
plish this It Is advisable that the fifty cents
necessary for a trip in an electric launch or
(none of the gondola be expended. The
Bore picturesque craft is, of course, the
Endola, but it does not move quickly nnd
route ia shorter than the route of the

The visitor having thus taken In tho gen

will probably in years to come be regarded hi
Its strongest attraction. He may now tun
his attention to the individual group o:
buildings and the exhibits. It he Is a Nea
Yorker, he will of course go to the New York
State buildings and register there, and take
look at the one building in the grounds whict
he feels he ha a right to cull peculiarly hit

may cross over to Wooded Island Slid take
look at the Boone and Crockett Club' cabin.
It is a modest enough log hut, with nn old
canvas-covered wagou in front of it. and tht
doorway is ornamented with old horns. In
side there are bear and deer skins, some old
harness anil working utensils. The design if
simple enough, U-ing the illustration of the
frontier hunter's enhin, nnd is well carried
out. Having inspected this bit of the fat
west, you will do well to cross back by the
way you came, as the other attraction of the
islHnd, tho Japanese village, is not yet
sufficiently complete to warrant a visitor In
spending much time over It, when there arc
so ninny other mom completed displays.
The Mining Building which you llnd your

eenrre, an exhibit tna exctte great neal of
curiosity from visitors, but which really illus
trates nothing In particular. To the right Is
the steel ease containing the tac simile of the
Declaration of Independence, the treaty of
peace with flreat Britain, and the treaty of
friendship and alliance with France, and pho
tographic copies of the Declaration and Con
stitution. Surmounting the case Is a portrait
of Jefferson, and this is surrounded by prints
of the signers. The next arch contains
Washington relics, prints of the framers ol
the Constitution anil portraits, and around
the comer In the east entrance Is the rest ot
the exhibit of the Btate Department. If yon
are a student of American history, it I Inter-
rstlng, and It contain the most valuable
collection of autographs and Slate papers In
;he grounds. Opposite this Is the small ex
hibit of the Department of Justice.
Before proceeding further toward the
north entrance of the (lovernment Building,
fou will do well to turn to your right at the
Mid of the State. Department exhibit and go
IntotheWar Department section, where you
will see cannon and guns and uniforms and
weapons of offence nnd defence Innumerable.
There is agroup Illustrating the (ireely ex
pedition, which Is particularly life-like and
Interesting. Passing across the Hmlthsnniitn
exhibit you find yourself among the dis
plays of tho Treasury and rostofllce Depart
ments, from which you pass Into those ot
the Geological Survey, Patent Office and
other bureaus of the" Interior Department.
Next to these is the Interesting exhibit of tho
Fish Commission, and then that of the
Agricultural Department. Coming out at
the entrance nearest you, you will lie within
a few steps of the building devoted to fish
and fisheries, and this, also, is well worth
going through, for it Is In a state of progress
which very nearly approaches completion.
When you leave the Fisheries Building,
you must again pits among some of the
foreign buildings, but they arc hanMy worth
while entering at present, nearly all of them
oclnx tar behindhand in their displays. You
may turn to your left after proceeding for a
short distance. nnd enter the Bulldingof Finn
Arts. No other structure approaches till
one. It is the best built, being llrcproot i it
Is well lighted, nnd It is a triumphof art out
side and Inside. Not all the pictures nre
hung, but there sre enough on the walls to
keep you busy for nn Indeliiiite length of
time. Shut up the whole of the rest ot tho
Fair, aud this building with its contents is
worth a journey to Chicago aud a week of
bad lodgings and bonrd.
The visitor who has followed the Itinerary
laid down hero has not yet been In the Wo
man's Building, but he may reach it by p.-tss-ng
to tho left after leaving the Art Building,
glitch will give him nn opportunity to see
.he large California und Illinois Statu bullil
ngs, which he did not get n view of when ho
ok the ride on the Intramural Hallway. He
Joed not pause to enter t hem, as they are not
fpt sufficiently complete, but opposite tho
Julifornia Building he can enter the Wo
man's Building, which. If not thoroughly
Inished yet, is still sufficiently llnished til
R'.trnmt us long an Inspection as you are
llile to give It.
From the south side ot the Woman's Build
ing you may pass in Horticultural Hall,
which also warrant a visit, and from there
pass by Choral Hall, which is not fully com
jilcted. You are now buck at the Transpor
tation Building whciieo you started out. and

Tho ball in her honor in the evening st
Madison Square Garden, S'cw York City, was
curried out according to tho eluborate plan
arranged and was a great sneers in every
respect. The attendance was probably a
fuihionablo and select as was ever gathered
together in the city.
Rich und mni-nitlcent a hnve been the
decoration of Mailion Square (iarden iu
times oust, it is probable that those of to
night have never been equaled; certainly
never ill this country have tin y been sur
passed. All the artistic skill of the florist
was called into play to procnt a scene that
will never be forgotten by those fortunate
enough ti wittier it. The ball look place
iu the Asrembly room, nnd on this occasion
its appearance wit that of one vast floral
bower. From the street Mow to the Inner
most recesses ol the hall there win a pro
fusion of mil lire's choicest beauties, all
combining to make n picture bewildering
in its details, charming in its conception
and harmonious in its development.
t he tloral bower began with the entrance
on the .Madison Square side and extended
to tbe stairway forming the ascent to (he
As-embly chamber above. The lobby it
self was trans ormed intoa veritable garden
Trellises covered with vines concealed the
walls und arches and shut off any glimpse
ol the ceiling. The corners of thu hull were
broken and concealed br an exceedingly
tasteful giouping tit plants, iu which ninny
blooming (lowers were intermingled. The
entrance from Twenty-sixth street wus
treated in a sitnilurlv artistic way.
The place of honor, the Assembly hall,
was, tit courie, assigned lo the infunla unit
her suite. And her all that artistic skill
could tlo hat. been ace mplished. This
royal apartment, wa made up by making
the three boxes, at the south side nearest
the siugu into one, the whole being convert
ed into u gorgeous llorul bower, with a pro
jecting cunopy resembling in the exquisite
ness of its tri-utmeiit the interior of a tea
hell. The front stage presented a beautiful
sight. Nine private boxes were arranged
there, behind which there appeared a con
