State at either a national or International fair Is putting It very mildly If Kontuck theirStatoand there Is no denying this fact tho assertion may bo made without fear of contradiction that no citizen of tho State will look upon the Ken lucky Building at tho St Louis Worlds Fair without feeling proud it his nativity and tho building which marks tho dawn of a now era In Kentuckys life When It was stated that tho Kentucky sanding occupies tho most commanding of all State structures on tho ground tho writer spoko advisedly It stands within what Is commonly known as tho main picture of the

appreciated As the architect would say however it covers an area 138 feet by 108 feet In chiding porches and verandas Tho building may bo said to be en tirely surrounded by porches and ve randao Every side is an Imposing en trance with the front and the rear emphasized by innsslvo porches To the original plans have been added an attractive stoop as an approach to tho front porch Midway between this stoop and the wldo roadway to tho southwest of the Mines Building tho lawn takes on tho form of a ter nur1turedhaving been transported to St Louis for this purpose to await the admir ing gazo of the

floor looking up a magnificent view of tho dome with Its many col ored glasses In tho center of tho re coptlon hall on the first floor will bo Installed exhibits of minerals fores try etc It was at first intended to fiavo a largo mosaic map of the State showing by counties tho products and resources but tho Building Commit tee at a meeting early this month decided to abandon the plan of having thlu clap and to give tho space in a more effective way to the displays mentioned These exhibits will prob ably pierce tho lightwell of tho sec and floor It has also been suggested and may bo mentioned In this con nection that tho heroic groups to stand on either sldo of tho front en trance bo chiseled out of Kentucky channel coal Tim building being perfectly white theso groups in their blackness as dark as night would certainly attract attention At each corner of the first floor there will be a small room which with tho stairway leading to tho sec and floor take up the balance of the first At tho northwest end of the second floor are three rooms so ar ranged as to bo thrown Into one large banqueting hall when desired A small space on the third floor will be reserved as a serving room with communication with the first and sec ond floors by a dumb waiter Tho third floor has been made as open as possible to connect with the outer galleries formed of tho roofs of tho porches The roof above the third floorthe main roofwill also be ac cessible and will give the visitor one of the very best views possible of tho surrounding grounds Tho main picture of tho

representing seventyodd dlf ferent varieties of commercial tim bers will be mado as rustic in ap pearanco as possible A twelve foot partition Is to separate Kentucky from her neighbor and on this partl tion will be displayed all the products of forestry with six lnch sections from logs It was first suggested by Dr Tarleton H Bean the Chief of the Department of Forestry for the Exposition that the timber display be mado In eight foot sections so cut as to show all the grains of the wood To utlllzd space however it has been determined to show only six Inch sections In this way not only Is it possible to glvo a good view of every variety of timber in the State but the finished products from the same Some kind friends of tho as sedation living in Eastern Kentucky have brought to the attention of tho organization a number of massive trees In different counties which ap proach In sizo tho monsters from Simple Colds Cease to he eituplo if at all pro longed The safest way is Ito put

have Kentucky to include in her space In his department tho medicinal plants of tho State and tho seeds from tho various trees Ho also wants mounted specimens of fish and game shown and In this connection it may bo mentioned that tho association is endeavoring to get the Polytechnic Society of Louisville to let It have its wonderful collection of native Kentucky bird skins now in its possession This collection was made by Mr Charles Wlckllfto Bcckham a relative of Governor J C W Beck ham at the time connected with the Smithsonian Institute at Washington There aro threo thousands

Callaway county financial matters during t Civil War and at one time in 1862 contained 50000 in gold Conditions were very unsettled and bands of predatory soldiers and bushwhackers were prowling over the commaIs t ing with one another The officials of the bank of which Mr Curd was president got nervous for fear onefol these bands should make a mlon the town crack the safe and take all- S their gold The directors held aev oral consultations and it was at last agreed that Mr Curd Col W T Snell and Ed Porker should make a secret disposition of the treasure One man suggestion that it be burled in a haystack but this scheme was rejected HOW THE GOLD WAS SECRETED to I ventured the idea says Mr a bottoism n e it stood where the Adams block is now and the well was on the west of the lotand my

to brig it up by attaching hooks to the sacks and hoisting it to the surfacey But that would not work for theh weightsad of all the water had to be taken out and the loose coins gathered together again The secret rggatding who the money was hidden was not known anyone but the three who placed it dni rector of the bank When the well was first broached it was sold the bush whackers might in
