Three days of the current month will pass Into history as m.irkins an event of international interest. They are Thursday, Friday and Saturday, October 20th, 21st and Kd, on which dates Vcrinally opened to tho public on Hay 1st, 1S93, and will closo October 30th ot the same year. Illustrations of the principal IniiJdings are given above, together with data regarding dimensions, cost, etc., prepared especially for this paper from an authentic source. 'The magnitude ol' tho preparations.'tlioir perfection, and the vastness of tho resources for that purpose, upwards of $30,000,000 representing tho sums to be expended for the success of the -••project, give the assurance that the World's Fair and Exposition will be the greatest ever held. Occurring, as it does, at an age marking the highest advancement 1 of the world, and on a •,•-•onion of the globe conspicuous for tile intellectual attainment and progressive spirit of its people, it will afford opportunity for tho sight-seer and information-seeker such as has never before ,'i'een offered. The Arrs :\;:d Sciences, Agriculture and Manufacture, in their highest degree of perfection, mil ba unfolded to the eye and for thoughtful study. The pleasure to the sight and -.i.!:e value of the lessens to l>c learned at such an occasion cannot be comprehensively nor properly expressed by words, as the diversity of things to be seen will be as interesting and instructive -:i-they are varied, ar.il will cover a wider rangs and be far more numerous tlun were ever before gathered together. Fully scnsiblu ts this ::;ct, people are everywhere shaping plans to see and study the picture of the condition and industrial progress of mankind in every quarter of the world, and of bis • tiLiiieVcruents i:i every branch 01' Science and tho Arts, that tho Fair and Exposition will present. During the six months that it will be open to the public thousands of visitors will be attracted :o'Chicago. The greater portion of tho throng will naturally come from the thickly populated sections of the country. The territory bounded on the east by tho Atlantic Ocean, on the north . Sy tho Great Lakes, on the west by tho Mississippi River, on the south by the Ohio Elver, will contribute large numbers to the crowd. The dark lines on the above map indicate the desirable .. •.ver.uevof .travel from the territory mentioned, V.r.d represent the direct routes to Chicago formed by the Pennsylvania System of Hallways, which offer all desirable facilities for aa enjoyable •-- ;uii expeditious journey. These lines connect Chicago with the populous portions of Indiana, Ohio and Pennsylvania, touch at the capitals of those three states, and £<,rm unbroken links Iv'-v.'ceii Xew York, Washington, Wheeling, Cincinnati, Louisville and the Great City o£ the Lakes. To meet tho requirements o£ the increased traffic that will naturally be attracted to these direct routes during the World's Fair, the management of the Pennsylvania. Lines promptly .-.<U>i>;eil measures for tho iiioreace oE tracks, cahrgemeut of equipment, training of employes for the expeditious and satisfactory handling of that traffic, and nowhere Is there a railway .• ,7s:rm better equipped for the transportation oC large numbers o£ passengers. For the preliminary exercises at Chicago special concessions in fare will be made, and during the time the Fair .',,:d Exposition will be in progress th'a rates aud inducements for a journey over these desirable routes will be tally as liberal as any that may bo ofTered. Passengers over them will be carried •Jirect TO thu.yalr Cro'jmK as will be perceived by the bird's-eye view above. SEA FOWL !N A STORM. .They Uroafi tho 1'iu-y or tho Occ.in "IVorse Tlmn tho Sailorman Docs. 1'ar .out at sea the birds utter wild • cries of alarm when tlio..ocean begins to darken and the wind to moan a-cross the expansive waste of waters, and • with all the speed possible they % " toward some point of land to escape the •dang-er. The few which are caught in ••'ihe storm far from the land make the 'wild screaming of the storm more horrible by their piteous cries and excited -calls. Washed hither and thither by -the relentless storm, they fly around in -hopeless search for some harbor of re- •trcat Should tho light of some passing -vessel or the flash light of a warning . lighthouse attract tlfeir attention, they are lured on to a danger far greater than that experienced from the waves • sand winds. Storms do not always warn the birds in time to permit them to reach the -shore. The terns, petrels, gulls, ducks and other sea fowl may be far from s"hore skimming over the water in graceful sweeps when a coast storm suddenly comes out of the northwest .At the first sign of such a change in •ihe weather the birds invariably seek •some harbor of safety, but if the storm j shuts them out from the coast they are j forced to fly around in flocks until ac- •cident leads them to a retreat Sea ~f owl at such times flock together, and ;a lost company may number thousands, : representing a heterogeneous collection -of sea "birds, Such motley • collections frequently "flash against the lighthouse of some ex- 7 TOOsed point, where hundreds are killed •'by the collision. Ocean steamers serve j ^as an allurement for them, and they i -jiollow the light of the vessel as a moth j -does the candle light If not attracted j ' :by any light, the birds fly around until j -^exhausted by their exertions or until ! ••?ihe storm abates. During prolonged j -•storms thousands of lost sea fowl are j ••destroyed upon the ocean through their j •'Stability to reach land or to outride the j Various gales. While a large proportion j -••of the-flock would eventually succumb ! "So the fury of the wind and waves, j "th,ete'are many others that would show i •their .marvelous powers in outriding I Vche'storm. ' ? -To fly against a gale that is Mowing ;' ~ia .the rate of forty or fifty miles an j honr would require "bones of iron and muscles of steel, and the lost birds very rarely succeed in holding their own in such a storm. They buffet ^rith the gale bravely circling- around ana around to make headway ajrainst it, but in time they are swept far out to sea. The waves offer no resting- place for them, and they arc forced to trust entirely to their win^s for safety. After heavy storm? u_' .iareral days the terns and petrels Ivivc been found a thousand miles from the shore, weak and almost dead from their exertions. Others have been discovered floating- en the water dead, the black and blue patches on the bodies telling- the terrible story of strain and hopeless exertion. They fought bravely against the | adverse elements, and only succumbed after a long 1 battle. Incoming vessels have brought solitary sea fov.-l that would light upon the masts of the ships when completely exhausted after fig-ht- ing-against the storms. This welcome place of rest is secured despite all dan- g-er from the passengers. Floating- spars and wrecks have been the means of saving- the lives of such. lost birds. They would float on them ( for hours or days until they became | thoroughly rested from their labors, j and then they would beg-in their long j journey toward some shore at the first ] favorable opportunity. Their instinct ' at such times is -unerring, and they gen- . orally make for the nearest point of i land, although it may be hundreds oi miles away, and they are completely turned around. It may be, however, that they take their bearing-s from the sun while they are floating- upon their temporary restless buoys. Nearly all of the sea birds like to keep out to sea, and in the north of Ireland there is an old rhyme current which indicates that the gulls only approach the shore when driven iri by a storm, or by the -warning's of a heavy gale. The couplet reads: Sea jrall, sea gall, sit on the sand: It's never fine weather vrheri you conie to land. When the storm approaches the lonsr, { sharp whistling 1 of the curlews, the | wild cries of the sea gulls, and the sharp, '•• piercing screams of the terns announce ! that danger is at iand, The sea grows ! restless and choppy. An occasional j puff of wind vrill moan across the j water and force whitecaps into motion, j The birds then assemble alona^ the j shore, someseeking-for their food among 1 I the rocks half a mile out, while others j will run along- the beach or g-o to the ! inland marshes. • - j As the fury of the storm increases all i of them will get in beyond the reach of j the wild -waves. The heavy -wind j makes flying- a difficult art. and most of oncui trust to their legs. Tney run along the sand or hide in the rocks. The terns and gulls will occasionally venture out over the waves to fish for food, but they soon find out that the work is unprofitable. When the storm has subsided the coasts are great objects of interest to the sportsman. Every specie of sea fowl is to be found somewhere along all the beaches or inland marshes. They do not return to the wide sea for a day or two after the storm has abated, and then they are driven there by the hunter's gun.—Detroit Free Press. SHAKING OFF TRAMPS. SCIENTIFIC OBSERVATIONS. A CHILD'three years old is half the height that it will ever reach. A TEOPICAL moth, called the atlas moth, has a wing spread of one foot. It is gray in color and flies by night. THE skin of the whale is thicker than j that of any other anim^L In some i places it reaches a thickness of several \ inches.. j ACCOBDIXS to the law of nature, when j a body is cooled it becomes heavier than ' when it is hot. There is one exception j • to the rule, however, and that is in the ] : case of water. ', i BETWEEN the ages of twenty and { forty, prisoners die of consumption j much more rapidly than people outside of confinement, but whether this is owing to the confinement or to the previous lives of tte convicts is not clear. Few criminals of any kind live to be old men. ___^ TRADE ECHOES. THESE are 300,000 commercial travelers in the United States. FlFTT-EieHT thousand women belong to the trade unions of England. PHILADELPHIA is the greatest carpet manufacturing center in the world. COFFEE planters in Mexico make a profit of 100 to 250 per cent, on the amount of money invested. j THESE are in Great Britain and Ire- j land no fewer than-2,788,000 acres of, •woodland. 2f otwithstanding this f act, timber to the value of £16,000,000 is annually imported into the country. How Southern Conductors Deal ivlth Dlg- lioncst Xegprocs. The conductors on southern railroads are greatly annoyed by tramps, most of whom are negroes of the indolent type of that race. One night on a train on what is known as S unset route was a typical southern conductor, who had been a brigadier in the confederate service. His train had been stopping frequently between stations. A northern traveler, who was becoming nervous, asked the general what was the occasion. This was the answer: "Nig-jjali tramps infest the trains down here very badly. They don't wait for the train to stop. They re used to jumping on trains when 'ie trains are running at high speed. T 7 ;y throw themselves with wonderful dexterity on the rear platform and quicker than I can toll you they swin<^ themselves under the ear and get a. lodgment on the axles of the car. The only way to get them off is to stop the train and hunt them out. Sometimes we have to shake them ofE, same as you have to shake a coon from a tree. If we catch them before they swing themselves under the car, though, we don't stop the train then." "What do you do with them then?" , "Just drop them, sah, while the train is in motion. Sometimes I wait till we get on a. down grade and then "we let them go." "Do you not sometimes kill one by that sort of thing?" "I never stop a. train to see, but, as we are never summoned before any coroner's jury, I 'low we don't Mighty hard to kill a niggah unless you hit him with the front edge of a locomotive,"—Chicag-o Jfews. . -. _:-. his blood trouble, no matter , T ho'.v lon^ standing, proviciecl : organs Have been so far ira- ••:r a cure impossible.'
