Sotwithstanding the fiiany explain ations regarding* the awards a' the Fair, it is found that agents thfoWgh- out the country do not seem to eom- ptehend the intent of the authorities* A few words on the subject may be of valued-even if repeated from the press. In advertising, certain exag* efatiohs are, we know, deemed allow* able; but, as a matter of fttct, there was no "flfst premium" at the Fair, fioi- "gold medal," Each successful exhibitor' was awarded a bfonsse medal foe his par* ticular display and a diploma setting forth why the ttiedal WHS so awarded, The degrees of excellence are specified by the Wording of these til plotting. The gist, the nub of the whole mat' ter lies in the phraseology of thesp written opinions of the experts select eel to examine the various displays. It follows that careful analysis gives certain manufactures the right to claim distinguished, marked and highest honors. For example: The W. W. Kimball company made three special exhibits —pianos, reed organs and portable pipe organs. .For each display they received a remarkable diploma—and, Indeed, \v regard to the portable pipe, organ the judge specifically stated In plainest English Unit it was entitled to the highest award. For the Kimball piano t.he highest praise was given for tone (the word "remarkable" being used—the only instance In all the diplomas), action, design' arid skilled workmanship; and the Kimball reed organs were given the highest commendation for the same points of excellence. With these superlative words in bluck and white signed by the judges, the W. W. Kimball company announce "highest honors," and, in proof of their claim, publish in detail the diploma awarded each display. And the display was as wonderful as beautiful—for, be it remembered that, these magnificent specimens .of the art of instrument making were all from the factory of one company. Never before, in the history of expositions, were pianos, reed organs and pipe organs exhibited in one booth, the product of one company's factories— thefwhole to receive individual sweeping honors at the hands of the judges. ' • Small wonder that the W. W. Kimball company herald the proud distinction to the confines of the country; small wonder that the Chicagoans warmly congratulate the manufacturers—for the honors are honqrs indeedl and Chicago itself receives, although indirectly, a share ,of the lavish praise bestowed, ' The W. W. Kimball company went into thp exhibition with their regular warerobm stock, having faith in their ability, pride,in their products and entire confidence'in the result of fair judgement—but we doubt if their •wildest dreams of hope equalled the actual .sweeping, overwhelming honors so. freely bestowed up'on them-• by,• the officials of tbe; ''great 'Columbian, exposition.—St. Paul Pioneer Prpss. ; A: full- line of the above named W.
