Between the North Bay and the Lake the City of Buffalo has built at Large expense a new and Beautiful Bridge of heavy masonry known As the Bridge of the three americas. This Bridge carries the Broad thoroughfare which leads from the main Southern Entrance to the approaches of the exposition As seen in the foreground just North of the Lake. On the Northern Shore of tie take is situated the life saving station erected by the Federal government where daily exhibitions will be Given by a Crew of ten men showing the uses of modern life saving apparatus As employed upon our coasts. Hidden from View upon the Southern Bank of the Lake a Beautiful Casino and Boathouse Bas also been built by the City of Buffalo for exposition uses. The symmetrical grouping of buildings will be at once noted by the observer. Beginning at the formal approach just North of the Lake the Eye follows North Ward Between two rows of ornamental columns to what is known As the Forecourt. East of tills Are the state and foreign buildings forming in themselves a very interesting feature of the exposition. Near these also Are the buildings for the special ordnance displays representing tie products of several Hundred Manu Fae i tories in this line of work. West of the Forecourt will be the outdoor horticultural displays and the women a building. We Cross now the triumphal Bridge which will be remarkable tor its tall piers richly ornamented with \ statuary the product of the Genius of Karl bitter the director of sculpture and other famous sculptors. On either Side Are the Mirror lakes which form a part of the grand canal More than a mile in length which surrounds the main group of buildings. We come next to the Esplanade which is nearly two fifths of a mile Long and 450 feet wide. The Western end of the Esplanade is enclosed by the horticulture graphic arts and mines buildings. The Eastern end is shut in by the government group of three Large buildings. Sunken gardens with elaborate fountains and Many groups of sculpture occupy the two of the Esplanade and the decorative features throughout this Broad space Are very numerous and Beautiful.

In the court of fountains is a Large Pool having an area of about two acres and containing Many Beautiful fountains. Proceeding again northward we come to the mall a Broad Avenue half a mile Long extending from the Eastern Boundary to the Western Gate of the exposition. Fronting upon the mall on the right is the agriculture building and on the left the electricity building. We now arrive at the most conspicuous feature of the exposition the massive electric Tower till feel in height. This Tower stands of tween the von it of fountains and the Plaza in a Broad Pool about two acres in extent. This will be the most ornamental feature of the great exposition and will be the Centrepiece for special and elaborate electrical illumination.

Buffalo is a City of nearly 40d.000 population and is preparing in every possible Way for the reception of millions of visitors in 1901. Mark Bennitt. Mammoth turbines. Six a pm one for the Long Arn Falla Power company. A new feature of much interest has been added to the delights fan America a i Odds will have when they visit Niagara Falls to View the Scenic and Industrial attractions there. In that favored spot there is already developed More Power than is used in Many of the Large Cilious but to this developed Force must be and led 30.000 horsepower that is to by developed by Means of six new turbines and six new generators. The contracts for which have been awarded. These new turbines Are to 1�? installed in the new wheel pit now in course of construction. The design of the new turbines will differ materially from the design of those now in use in the present wheel pit this change is significant of the fact that the Niagara Falls Power company intends that the installation in its new Plant shall be up to the highest state of perfection known in this opening year of the Century. It is knowledge that at Niagara the most modern tie most perfect working Power development in tie world May be seen that will inspire visitors to the exposition to go there and look upon the wonders that Man has wrought. Each of the six new turbines will have a capacity of 5,000 horsepower and each will be connected to and drive a 5.000 horsepower Generator. The turbines now in use were designed by Piccard. Picket amp co. Of Geneva Switzerland while the new turbines Are to be built after designs prepared by Sclier. Wyss so co. Of Zurich Switzerland the plans of which Cut a Pany were accepted in a Competition. The turbines in the old pit each have two wheels while the new turbines Are each to have but a single wheel. With these new turbines in place in the wheel pit. The output capacity of the Niagara Falls Power company will be 80,000 horsepower. There w ill be space in the new pit for five additional turbid of. Each of 5.000 horse Power capacity and with these in place the total output of the two pits will be 105,000 horsepower. Orrin e. Dunlap. Took it Serlo Saljr. The Ute professor Hinsdale was singularly devoid of All sense of humor and As for Slang Well he knew far More about the Dearest of dead languages than he did concerning these saucy innovations on his native Tongue. There was a certain piece of legislation which was of considerable interest to the local school officials it had been introduced into the legislature and was there hanging tire. One Day professor Hinsdale tie school superintendent said to or. Tom Whitehead Secretary of the Board of education a emr. Secretary what is tin Outlook for that special school Bill now in the hands of the state legislators do you believe it will be adopted soon a the Secretary Shook his head in a manner that was meant to in thoroughly discouraging Aud said with a Strong emphasis a it will be a cold Day when that Bill is the superintendent nodded Aud passed on. A Day or two later somebody came into his office and asked him about the prospects of the same Hill.

Many pb0blem8 to be mastered. Not Only will in hot rely new element be introduced Lent it will include Yoang Well trained Volunteer officer a Keg ular men glad of to Lilac younger set will Benefit most by run Nicen. A competent military critic who has carefully studied the new reorganization act declares in the Washington Star that it will subject the regular military establishment to greater and More Radical changes than have Ever occurred at any one time in its history. He asserts that not Only does it involve More careful and intricate labor on the part of the War department officials than the reorganizations of 18g0 and 1809, but promises especially As regards the lower grades to result in a More general rearrangement of the personnel of the . Aside from All this however he claims to voice the general sentiment of the in stating that apart from some minor details affecting the status of a few particular classes of officers the new Law is most satisfactory As a whole and will result in unmeasured Good to the military service both with respect to general efficiency and specific individual advantage. Under it he states that the regular will at last be organized on the lines recommended Aud urged by military authorities for the past 23 years and promises that degree of elasticity which would be equal to meeting the emergency for a quickly required pending the naturally tardy work of organizing and equipping volunteers. Speaking of the proposed changes in general he declares that they involve not Only the introduction of a Large entirely new element into the regular service but provides for the fortunate selection at this time of that new element from the experienced and Well trained younger officers of volunteers. In this respect the regular is delighted. As a Rule in times past enlargements or curtailments of the regular establishment have worked grave injustices to veterans who having no political backing and relying upon military service alone have been jumped and Over laughed by younger men. This was especially so in 1sgg, when volunteers 2g years of age were appointed colonels Over men who had graduated from West Point in the forties. But it is not so now. While providing openings in the regular for aspiring Young volunteers the regular officer already in the service will be carefully guarded in his rights. Nevertheless it will cause extensive derangement of the personnel of regiments and will in a great measure tend to upset that regimental Esprit which prompts officers to espouse the respective regimental claims of particular achievements and traditions. This condition relates exclusively to the line of the . The personnel of the staff will not be materially affected inasmuch As the additions to the staff being All at the Bottom will enable the older set to be advanced each in his own corps or department wherein each May cling to that Esprit of corps which All Are wont to maintain and cherish. Of course so far As the three arni9 of cavalry artillery and infantry Are concerned they will remain separate and intact unmixed with each other As in 186g, and the votaries of each May still contend and banter with each other Over alleged special Merit and usefulness. But on the creation of new regiments the doubling of the cavalry strength the one third increase of the artillery and the one fifth increase of infantry the changes in the personnel of regimental organization must necessarily be very decided. For example of the 1,9g6 Une officers of All grades on the list of today i860 will be promoted by the new Law. Of the total 4g9 officers of cavalry 270 will be promoted of the 349 artillery officers 230 will be advanced and the same will be True of 340 of the 1,147 officers of infantry. As far As practicable promoted officers will be assigned to their old regiments but naturally obstacles to this plan will arise by reason of the scattered Distant stations of officers and besides it May be decided to make a general redistribution of regimental officers so As to preserve a system of equalized rank and experience in both Oil and new organizations. Officers who desire especially to we Aive advantages of regimental status and to remain with old regiments in whose service they have Long shared will doubtless be gratified but All in All the wholesale promotions bid fare to cause a general upheaval of regimental personnel. Some idea of the extensive changes Likely to occur in this regard May be had from the statement that Over 2,500 new commissions must Issue one half of we Holch will be for appointments from the Volunteer Force and civil life to the 920 vacancies of first Ana second lieutenants of the line and 288 available vacancies of first lieutenants captains and majors of staff not including the 200 two year service Volunteer surgeons and assistant surgeons the 24 retained Volunteer quartermasters the 30 dental surgeons and the veterinarians provided for. The vacancies to be caused by promotions and retirements and appointments to 13 Briga doers helps will create new places to be added to those for which original appointments of volunteers May be made excepting of course the number of vacancies to be reserved for the annual promotion of meritorious noncommissioned officers of the regular and for teds years graduating class of West pointers. The civilian aspirant though he be handicapped by the preference to be Given to Volunteer officers will not be debarred altogether As aside Fiora All considerations the president is vested with full discretion to proceed according to Merit and fitness of applicants. President Mckinley will sign in the neighbourhood of 3,000 new commissions including the new commissions of commanding generals and All the 21 general officers excepting the two present major generals. Indeed not Only will All the generals nearly nil the colonels and lieutenant colonels and a majority of the majors within tie next year or two Bear commissions signed by president Mckinley but a Large percentage of the entire before March 4, 1905, will hold their authority by ids a Trust and confidences in their a patriotism valor Fidelity and better passports.

Never before in the history of the regular has any one administration had so much directly to do with its personnel and never before in the history of modern armies has a National War Olliee had thrown upon it so much technical labor to be performed within such a limited Brief period. Nearly All the officers of cavalry and infantry and Many of the artillery officers who Are to be promoted and assigned to new regiments As Well As the great bulk of those who Are to be promoted in and transferred to and from the old regiments Are in the Philippines Cuba and Porto Rico. They Are nil More or less remotely separated into minor garrisons and the greatest care will be required to secure expedition and avoid confusion and error. Then again the enlisted men for the new regiments must be quickly enrolled throughout the United states assigned uniformed and organized under command of a sufficient number of officers who must be somehow found in this country to take charge of and conduct the newly formed regiments to the Philippines. All in All it is a heavy task especially for the adjutant general a and quartermasters departments but so thorough is the understanding of All requirements and so perfect the system of procedure by skilled officials no one doubts the final successful accomplishment of the work. While the new Bill will make a Bonanza of Quick promotions for the younger set such As has never before occurred in quasi peace times the older set will not derive near As much immediate Benefit. In the Lino of the for example of the 8g0 promotions Only 13 Wilt be of lieutenant Colo nets 30 of majors and but 75 of senior captains. The promotion of 15 colonels to the Grade of brigadier general Aud a possible five additional promotions and retirements of colonels will make a total of 140 Field officers and 6enlor captains of cavalry artillery and infantry a total of 140 As compared with about 760 promotions of subaltern. In the several grades of the staff department the promotions will be much less than generally imagined making a total of 220, including 8 lieutenant colonels 19 majors 38 captains Aud 155 first lieutenants. The adjutant general a department will have but one promotion of a major to lieutenant colonel under the new Law and the inspector general a department but one promotion to colonel and two to lieutenant colonel but the former will have an increase in the lower Grade of 11 officers Aud the latter an increase of 7. These figures both for line and staff show greater advantages and benefits for the younger Sot but the new Law holds out to the older Aud higher graded officers much greater Hope for future advancement than to the younger class whose time for stagnation of promotion is sure to come.

Fred Herrng of Kalispell mon., a member of the rough riders during the cuban Campaign has received a letter from vice president elect Roosevelt saying that he will visit Herrng next summer with a party of Eastern sportsmen Aud Hunters says the Chicago record. The party will proceed up the North Fork of the Flathead River Cross the Rockies and go Down the famous Hunting grounds around Lake Mcdonald in Northwestern Montana. Can Nutley again the Pillow. Is it better to sleep with the head High or Low this is a question which manufacturers of bedclothes apparently answered Long ago by announcing authoritatively that no one in his senses would think of lying Down to sleep unless he had a Pillow and a bolster under his head. Now however a French scientist comes Forward and says that any one who rests his head on a Pillow and bolster while he is sleeping is slowly but surely committing suicide. Teds scientist is m. A. Feret and it was at the recent meet lug of the French society of Hygiene that lie expressed his Heterodox views on the subject. According to m. Feret the Only natural position for Man while sleeping is tie horizontal one Aud the first thing to do in order to accustom oneself to it is to remove the bolster. Within a few months he says one will he Able to sleep much More calmly Thau Ever before and moreover the Genera health will be much improved. A this statement a he insists a is not made lightly but is the result of Long the next step he says is to remove the Pillow for not until then will the circulation of the blood be us free As it should be. In further explanation he says that Tho Pillow Aud bolster keep the Bead and neck at a abnormal Angle and that consequently the sleepers entire body remains during the night in an uncomfortable position and one which impedes the free course of the blood through tie vessels and organs. The Only remedy he maintains is to adopt a horizontal position since by it alone is absolute rest guaranteed and this rest is due to the fact that in such a position tie ligaments of the neck Are not strained or distorted the lungs easily perform their proper work and the heart beats regularly. More Protection for american Clit Xirui of foreign birth. The department of state has adopted a new policy in issuing passports to american citizens of foreign birth which it is believed will result in preventing some of the arrests of those who now return to the country of Tabeli origin says the Washington Star. Heretofore it has been the practice to Grant passports to Ull americans who proved their citizenship and allow them to go wherever they Whoso without any warning As to the risks they might run but it has been found that Many people of foreign birth suppose that the Mere acquisition of american citizenship Aud the Security of an american passport Render them in inure from the operation of the Laws or regulations of the country of which they were formerly subjects or citizens if they return. Such is however very far from being the Case. In All countries a person who secures naturalization in another country is still liable to punishment upon his return for an offence committed before his emigration and in some countries emigration and naturalization without permission Are themselves offences. The department has taken a very 6lmple Way of preventing americans from unwittingly running into danger by preparing a series of notices which it now sends to All applicants for passports of foreign birth. Each applicant receives one of these notices with his passport. It is Brief and simply written and tells him in a Way that any one can comprehend just what the Laws and regulations Are that May affect him. As the notices relate to the policy of foreign countries they Are not official hut they Are believed to be Correct and have been compiled with great care in the department after consultation with our ministers abroad. The notices for Germany France and Switzerland Are being regularly issued and those for other countries of Europe and Asia Are now being printed. There is intended to be no departure from the attitude of dissent of this government from the policy of certain foreign countries in their treatment of their former subjects or citizens and the department has from abundance of caution so instructed american diplomatic agents abroad. Woman and Home. A real daughter of the american revolution. How she a thousands the care of food treatment of Meale a a Tine of the family a the love of jewels. There Are those living today who can look Hack to the time when at a fathers knee they list vied to the thrilling experiences of Tho stirring times of the revolution is told by the actual participators in the struggle. The number of these is of course exceedingly Small scattered Over different parts of the United states. Two Are residents of the Stute of Wisconsin. The first of these two original daughters of the revolution mrs. Jane a. Walker of Waupun wit�., was born at Ferrisburg vt., aug. 31. 1810. She is the daughter of John Powers whose name Dpi years upon the Muster Roll in both Tho Battles of Lexington and Bunker Hill. He was 27 years old when he answered his country Scall in 1770, and he faithfully bore until the War was ended. Mrs. Walker tells Many interesting incidents of her fathers experience. She lumber Supply nearing its end. The american Lumberman publishes some figures which should stir Congress and state Legislatures to prompt action touching the preservation of american forests. They ought also to move owners of Forest lands to consider whether self interest would not require them to take Steps to prevent the destruction of their Industry. In 1890 the states of Michigan Wisconsin and Minnesota produced 8,597.000,000 feet of Pine lumber. Since then the product bus steadily declined and in 1900 was but 5,4s5.2g1,000 feet. During the last two years prices of lumber have been High am there has been every inducement for the Mills to turn out a heavy product. Every resource has been strained but without Avail. The Trees could not be found. The end the White Pine Industry of the Northwest is almost at hand. The years of its greatness Are already passed. While the destruction of the forests in the states named has perhaps been More rapid than elsewhere by reason of the proximity to markets and favourable shipping facilities All Forest sections of the country Are suffering irreparably from the Woodman sax. Chief geographer Gannett of the United states geological Survey from the Best data obtainable estimates the total stand of Timber throughout the United states at 1,380,000,000,000 feet. In 1890 the Cut was about 25.000.000,000 feet and since that time it has steadily in creased throughout the country at Large though decreased la some sections by reason of the practical exhaustion of the Supply. At the present rate of consumption the available Supply will last not to exceed 50 years and perhaps not so Long As that. The present generation is Likely to feel the Pinch of Scarcity. Aside from the meteorological influences of land denudation and its effect upon the water courses there is shameful waste of natural wealth which is justly a part of the heritage of coming generations. The preservation of the yet remaining forests is one of the most important matters to which legislators state nil National can direct their Wisdom and Energy. Mrs. Jan a a. Walker. Said a i have often heard my father Tell of the Battle they fought at Bunker Hill what a fierce struggle it was and How their ammunition gave out and they had to fall Back. But they were not whipped. History tells of this Battle that the americans were told not to fire until they could see the Whites of the eyes of the on her mothers Side also mrs. Walker has a remarkable revolutionary ancestry her mothers father having been one of the famous minutemen of the revolution. She says she has often heard her Mother Tell of How a child of 8 year she had to plow while her father Wai away at the War. Mrs. Walker is one of a family of 16 children and the Only survivor. She possesses great activity both of body and mind is interested in All the questions of the Day reads the papers Aud is an Active and devoted Church member. She is quite an adept in the Art of embroidery. At the age of 8g she began to make coloured embroidery on Linen and since that time 6he has completed Over 100 pieces one of which be presented to the local chapter 1>. A. R. Of port Atkinson wis., of which she is a member and it is highly prize by the society. Mrs. Walker has resided upon her farm near the limits of the City of Waupun for Over 50 years. Soon after its Purchase she was left a widow with six Small children All of whom she brought to womanhood and manhood. Four of the six Are living today one a daughter resides in Panada. Two sons Charles and Gideon Walker live at times Herald. Protecting american Dairy interest. The Dolliver amendment to the agricultural appropriation Bill adopted by the Senate takes a commendable step toward preserving the foreign markets for american dairymen. Senator Dol livers proposition is for a rigid inspection of All Dairy products intended for Export. Its purpose is to prevent butter imitations from being shipped abroad As genuine butter Only to be rejected after trial and test by the foreign consumer. One of the most urgent complaints against the present practice of the makers and exporters of butter imitations is that they do not hesitate to ship their goods abroad in the name of the genuine Dairy product thus depreciating the value of the latter in the foreign Market. By the use of a double Export pail cover and other cunning devices the makers of artificial products have been enabled to avoid detection As the goods Are being sent abroad. Under a proper system of government inspection it ought to be impossible to Send out of the country any article of an artificial nature branded As natural and it ought furthermore to be possible to prevent such adulteration As will eventually destroy the foreign Market for All classes of goods whether pure or not which fall in the least degree under suspicion. It is hard enough to capture the foreign Market at Best and More difficult still to hold it in the face of the opposition of foreign governments without the Handicap of fraudulent practices which serve to destroy Confidence abroad in the integrity of american products.

A a in be just lost a thousand dollars a said the girl with the pensive face casually. A Well its hard to keep track of such a Small sum in ones purse a was the rejoinder the sarcastic Young woman in the Morris chair made. The pensive girls nose wrinkled in disdain. A it was this Way a she explained a i was coming Home with one of the latest novels my Friend on the North Side had Lent me. The Book i carried was Brand new and i was going through a department 6tore and happened to Stop and look at some books in the Book department. It was then i thought of it. They Are always on the Lookout for shoplifters you know and it suddenly occurred to me that it was quite Likely i would feel the heavy hand of a House detective on my shoulder As i walked out of the store. In fact i did no to quite see How a detective who was doing his duty could avoid nabbing me. There i was loitering around the books and intending to walk away with a Brand new unwrapped novel under my . What grounds would the detective have for believing i Hadnot stolen it i decided to remonstrate gently but firmly with him. He would scoff. Thereupon i would consent to be led away. I would demand being taken to the manager. I would state my Case to him in a quiet Ladylike haughty manner which would cow him so different would it be from the usual hysterical threats of the real shoplifters. He would be convinced and apologize anti Hope it was All right. Then i would smile fros tily and make no move toward going. A of no a i would say it is not All right. You know perfectly Well what a Box you and your Bright detective have got yourselves into. I have a Good damage Case against this store and i intend to put it in the hands of my lawyer. Either that and the annoying publicity for you or you sit Down and sign a Check for $1,000 and hand it to of course he would be glad to get out of it for a paltry thousand Aud then i would depart planning a summer trip to the fascinated audience was listening breathlessly. The pensive girl Drew a Long Long sigh. A but the horrid House detective let me walk out right Unuer uis nose Ana i flashed the Book in his very face.
