National Editorial Association Got Started Mondfiy toir the Const— The World's Foil- «rounds and the Buildings that Arc Ooing tf^. CHICAGO, May 8.—The delegates and Officers of the National Editorial association are In Chicago ready to start tomorrow evening on their trip to San Francisco, where they meet May 23. Their first stop is at Colorado Springs, when Thursday they assist in the dedication of the Childs-Drexel home for worn-out printers, and from there they visit along to San Diego, and then up the coast to the place of meeting. The attendance is very large, and three trains will bo needed, two from Chicago and one from St. Louis. As till these dine at the same towns and as they all have toatop for meals, the main item of interest at present is concerning the division of the train wo will be in. Breakfast, dinner, supper, are printed in Roman letters in the handsome itinerary gotten out by the Sante Fo railroad, but whether in the actual handling of the excursion they will be given the prominence they deserve and receive in the programme is a, matter for profound and serious speculation. We ha viva suspicion that the first car in the In-fit (rain is safer than the last car in UK, last train. Thn Auditorium hotel is the mooting place, and this morning Senator and Mrs. Parrott and J. W. Doxaeo were hero from Iowa. They are the only ones thus far, but Johnson Brig-ham, Byron Webster, and some half dozen others are delegates and will attend. Each slate will be fully represented and in all there will be some 000 delegates. Those who have been able have visited the world's fair grounds while in the city. You take the suburban train anv- where along the lake front and in JJO minutes are at Jackson park, whore the buildings are now going up. It costs a quarter to get in at the gate, and for half a dollar more you get a carriage and a driver who does five dollars, worth of talking as he drives you about four miles. Then you take a look at the most wonderful building plans ever yet attempted. No amount df writing can give any adequate idea of what IB being done. There are 7,000 men at work on the COO acres of the park, and when they get done Chicago will have an exposition so far ahead of anything ever-before attempted that the calendar • of exhibitions will be changed and everything henceforth will date from this. , It is easy to think of 30 acres. But it is not easy to think of one building which will have a ground floor of 31 acres under roof. As the farm boys begin to step oil 1 their corn land they can get SOIDO idea, of the main hall, if they will take a 30-acre field and in imagination put walls around it and a roof over it. This building is 1,088 feet long by 788 feet wide, about five Algona blocks long by two and a half wide, including streets. The arches which support the main roof are 385 feet across at the foot, and 150 feet high, over a block across and a half higher than the stand pipe. They are the biggest iron arches ever made and the hall is very much larger than ever before attempted. And yet the demand for room is so great that an annex covering 15 acres will be built. This measuring buildings by acres is a new idea, and sounds rather western, but that is the way they speak of these. The agricultural hall has the largest dome in the world and is two and a half Algona blocks long by one and a half wide. Machinery hall is a little larger, the electrical building is about the same size, the transportation building is over three blocks long by ono wide, the horticultural building is longer yet and the same width, even the woman's building covers more than a block, and the fisheries building is nearly four blocks long, and the art hall, which is to be permanent, is nearly two blocks long aud more than ono wide. These are not all the main buildings, while the state and foreign buildings are yet to come, and will make great additions. The main buildings are all covered with a preparation of stucco, made with sea grass and molded in beautiful shapes. It is nailed on the wooden frames and looks at a little distance like the finest marble. It is tough, the weather does not affect it, and the designs in which it is modeled are made by fine artists. The exterior of the building will bo that of magnificant marble palaces. Jackson park fronts on Lake Michigan with a fine gravel beach. A lagoon from the lake about 100 feet wide will run all through the grounds, and Venetian gondolas will carry the people from one building to another. Railways, cable cars, and boats will run to and from the grounds. Board: ing houses will be plenty and cheap, and no one in Iowa can afford to miss this exhibitfon. Everyone can save $25 ' before next summer and for that he can ' inake quite a visit to the world's fair. For $60 he can see all the average man will care to spend time for. He will see what no other city in the world has yet shown, and can view at Chicago all the finest products that the 2,000 years • of modern civilisation have to furnish, Chicago itself is a sight " well worth "the price of admission." If it wasn't that this excursion is for climate, Chicago would be a bad starting point, In everything but climate Chicago is near the climax of things. But no amount of toughening can make gentle zephyrs out of the penetrating breezes that sweep in over Lake Michigan and go through warranted woolens like water •through a sieve. In spite of 20-story buildings, auditoriums, great hotels, all of them the greatest in the world, wo feolthat an excursion to the balmy atmosphere of the coast will be a success, at this season of the year. But for anything but climate Chicago has all that the moat modern of modern enterprise can furnish and if the world's fair should have nothing but the city alone to show, it would still be a world's fair. In closing it may bo of interest to lowans to note that Illinois from a car window seemed more under water than Iowa. For 80 miles from Ro- cl^elle to Chicago, there was more evidence of rain than any where in Kossuth. HARVEY INGHAM. er, excessive rivifuV:!. delayed farm work, and fnf!?id'.-v;il)l" damage by floods.

Its truth of course can be vouched for. The story is told by one of the young ladies: "On our way to Edinburgh we stopped over a train at Stirling to see the castle, and there an adventure befell us of which I will tell yon. When we got out of the train and were looking about for the ways and means of reaching the castle we were-accosted by a tall, fine looking, middle aged man, who asked if we were not from the 'other side of the water.' Wo said 'yes,' and that \ye wanted to get to the castle. He said that he was going there and would be glad to show us the way and also to show us his old family house, which was close by. We got into a carriage, and our new friend mounted the box beside the driver and on we wont. "We finally stopped before a quaint old house, with coats of arms carved in stone, and he led us into the courtyard, which was very quaint and old. He said the place was called Argyle Lodge and then added: 'Perhaps I ought to tell you who 1 am. I am Lord Lome, the last of the house of Argyle I 1 He then took us all over the castle, the old Gray Friars' church, aud rushed about so that we saw twice as much as we could possibly have seen by ourselves, for he knew just what was worth seeing and could shake off the guide when he started on his long, rambling story. Lord Lorno was perfectly lovely, and we have all lost our hearts to him, and have serious designs first upon the life of the Princess Louise, his wife, anfl then upon each other."—Rochester Post- Express.
