To the Editor: So much has been said and written about the great world's fair at Chicago and the extortion that lurks in every hotel and restaurant, that perhaps u few lines from one who has been there and knows what it costs to make a week's sojourn at the " white city," may not bo crowded out for want of space, provided I confine myself to suggestions that may be of benefit to those of your readers who may bo contemplating a visit to the fair. It Is truly a world's fair, for all the nations of the world have contributed to its success. It is the most magnificent display that the world has ever known, and not in the history of tho present generation will there be another undertaking of such magnitude. With these facts in mind, and being within such easy access of the city of Chicago, about the only question that disturbs the mind of a prospective visitor in that of expense. Are the expenses of living in the city so high that I cannot afford to go? I can give you the experience of one who spent nine days in the city and six days on the grounds, and the statements given here are the result of experience, observation, and inquiry. In the first place Chicago has ample room to take care of all of the visitors, and you need not pay more than $1 per day for a good room,, good enough for anyone in Kossuth. county. It is not necessary to pay from. $1 to $5 in advance to secure a little room in some hotel, for nearly every private family has "furnished rooms to rent" at moderate prices. Many of the railroads, and tho exposition company have organizations for assisting visitors in securing rooms without expense OR their part for such assistance. Many tents are erected on good board floors, where quarters may be had for 60 cents per day. The school buildings and also the Chicago university buildings, almost within a stone's throw of the grounds are being fitted up into sleeping rooms at from $4 to $5 per week. The hotels and restaurants within a radius of a mile of the grounds are almost without number. Meals are no more expensive than in any town in Iowa. A good meal can be had for 35 cents, and some very inviting looking; places advertise meals at 25 cents. At the lunch counters on the grounds a meat sandwich and a cup of coffee will cost you 20 cents, but if you want to patronize the old English "White' Horse Inn," where the waiters always look for a tip, or experience tho novelty of taking your dinner on the roof garden of some high building, where prices go up with the elevator, you must expect to pay more. A good and economical way to do is to take your breakfast and supper outside of the grounds, and satisfy yourself with a lunch at noon. On this plan your living need not cost more than $1 per day, and you can live well, too. An admission fee of 50 cents is charged at the gate, which entitles you to see the fair. To enter all the exposition buildings and see all tho exhibits there need be no other expense whatever to see the fair proper. If, however, you desire amusement you can find it in a variety of ways, in any part of the grounds and especially in, the midway plaisunce, where you can spend daily more than twice the amount of your necessary expenses. But these are all extras that need not enter into one's expenses on the grounds, If you are a lover of music you can listen to the open air concerts on different parts of the grounds by the best bands of this and foreign countries, and you can attend the daily concert in the music hall by the Thomas orchestra of 114 pieces, without cost and without price. Summing it all up, one can easily spend a week at the fair, aside from railroad fare, at an expense of $20, and live well during his stay. While the fair as yet is not complete in all its details, yet there is so much on exhibition now that one could spend six weeks on the grounds and then not see it all, and he is a fortunate visitor who can see the great fair before he would encounter the heat and crowd of the summer. C. M, DOXSEE. AN EQUINE SPEOTAOLE. One Hundred Imported Horses In a Grand Bullet MUltqut. A spectacular equine carnival and horse ballet is the latest unique feature of Ringling Bros.' World's Greatest Shows. Ordinary adjectives are inadequate 'to describe the beauty of this remarkable equine act. The troupe comprises one hundred of the finest imported horses. Every horse has a pedigree, and each has been selected for his fine beauty and intelligence. A fanfare of trumpets tills the vast amphitheatre with a melody, and then with u rush and a roar the mighty cavalcade of gorgeously-caparisoned horses dash out upon the great hippodrome track. The riders, attired in striking continental costumes, add to the effectiveness ,of the mise-on-scene. The horses need no guiding rein. They follow the calls of the trumpet with simultaneous understanding. At the sound of the brass horses halt, and "dress" with the precision of a company of soldiers. Then follows a performance that in scope and picturesque novelty has never been equaled. As the calls are given the horses pirouette, kneel, bowingly acknowledge applause, fown pyramids and tableaux vivants. and finally after a series of these astounding feats combine in a glorious patriotic finale, iu which the pyramidal grouping of the horses, 00,9 above the other in successive tiers, the notes oj M A»erSoa" thundered by (foe grand military feud, and the un|«rV ~- A
