Johnson and W H Lillard of Danville Were at Seelbnchs Hotel and both are engaged in cattle buying and shipping Since the packers of the great markets are unable to operate on full capacity they will not take the cattle which offer except in a limited way and the result is that the animals are forced back on the country and the market for beeves on foot is forced lower On the other hand the amount of meat produced by the packers is small iin comparison with the average and the demand absorbs it quickly causing the price of dressed meats to go up As neither of the Ken tucky buyers is a butcher both are toicexr to take less for their cattle and pay more for fresh meat on ac count of the great strike Cattle on foot are a hundred lower than when the strike beganCou rierJournal A PERFECT

Purchase Exposition is made on the authority aud with the unanimous authorization of the Executive Commissioners Associa tion whicli representsal the States in the Union the Dominion of Can ada and irejgn countries It is in tended to convey to the reader with out exageration a fair and just pie ture of the Exposition as it exists in its completion of the general con ditions to he met by visitors at St Louis and all other facts nicessary to enable the possible visitor to know beforehand just what to ex pect It may be said at the outset that the observations here made are by men of worldwideexperience who are familiar with all the great ex positions of modern times and with the problems and questions which have entered into the creation of the Louisiana Purchase Exposition The buildings alone which com- prisE the main features and decora tive structures of the Expoitiou are worth coming from any part ol America or the old world to see But besides the buildings the ex hibits they contain are not only vast in extent and variety but they are unusually beautiful and attractive from the standpoint of art and dec orative skill 0Pietwelve main exhibit palaces ate of varied styles of architecture at once pleasing to the eye and to the aesthetic sense All newcom ers to the Exposition involuntarily exclaim Oh how beautiful The size of these buildings might be given but the meie matter of dimension is of little importance i The main thing is that they are marvelously symmetrical harmo nious in conception and rather sitn 1 pie than complicated in their gen eral exec ition It can be said on the authority of the esf judges in the world that the great palace of Mines and Metal Inrgy whif occupies an extreme I i1 ly important position in the general plan and adjoins the palace of Lib eral Arts and the United States Government building is the most magnificent most original dud sub line pieces of architecture which was ever created for exposition pur poses The visitor may occupy hours days or weeks in any of these exhibit palaces according to his tastes and inclinations but it may be safely said that no visitor can pass through them without being benefitted ICrt In addition to these twelve great exhibit palaces it must be borne in mind that fortyfour different states and territories of the Union have erected their own separate homes within the Exposition grounds Each one of these build A p ings is a specific exhibit of the state J which erected it and in each one of them may be seen on any day- throngs of the representatives from each particular state and territory who add their presence their intel ligence and their interest to the living picture of the Exposition Besides all these buildings there are special exhibit palaces of dis- tincc attractiveness and beauty foreignrLL tion of them would take up the en tire space of this article There isa tract of fortyseven acres within the Exposition grounds devoted entirely to exhibits of men and materials from the Philippine Islands This wonderful display would constitute a magnificent ex a position ifsetapart by itselt and en cikl4ii pendent It contains a vast number of exhibit buildings many being of Philippine style and materials which contain examples of all the products of the Philip pinesarm implements household pertainingIIn the department of education there is represented enough of Phil ippine civilization to convince any thinking person that there exists in the islands a widespread spirit of civilization and considerable ad vancement in that direction In the case of the native tribes the visitor has the opportunity to observe them in an environmentiden tical with their own country and engaged in their own pursuits To visit this great Philippine reservation and to study it carefully is equivalent to a visit to the Philip pine Islands and at an expens of money time and labor which is in finitesimal as compared with the actual cost of a visit to the islands Iu another reservation of fifteen acres is the Boer War exhibit which is like a bit of South Africa withits scenes and people trans planted to the very doors of the Atnericah people This Boer war exhibit constitutes one of the most wonderful humanitarian features of the Exposition Every visitor to fJ i iti2 if 7 Ijtt 1 it will tell you that he regards a as atone worth the trouble and ex pense of coming to St Louis Encampments of American Indians of aborigines from the wites of Japan dwarfs from Central Africa the fierce Indians of Terra del Fuego and many other tribes are open to all visitors and numberless other features which it is im possible to name in the scope of this article The grounds consisting of m6re than 1200 acres are without doult the most beautiful iu their arrangement and decorative features that the eye of man has ever looked upon Exquisite gardens and banks of flowers are found at every turn in the pathways and in every nook between the great structures while the beautiful lagoons of limpid water extend for two miles or more through the main avenues of the main avenues of the Exposition culminating in the Grand Basin at the center of the picture into which fall the great cascades and colossal geyser fountains from the Slope leading np to the Colonnade of States This Colonnade of States which forms an elevated background to the picture is a most magnificent creation The colonnade extends around the rim of the ridge terminating at either end in a pavilion of attractive style and in the center stands the beautiiul Festival Hall containing the largest pipe organ in the world in an ruditorium which seats comfortably about 35000 people Here the important musical events of the Exposition are held Farther back on this ridge are the art palaces and galleries which contain collections of paintings which arc worth going to the ends oftbe earth to examine It is not likely that such a collection will ever be gotten together again in this or any other country within the lifetime of the rising genera tion of today Thbui1dingsand grounds more over are decorated in the m st lavish manner with groups of graceful statuary with sbrubberj and trees aud other dec rativu fea tures which lend variety andgiace at every turn The entire pietuie is one which no sentient being can afford to miss By day it is as if one had come into some new world where every thing isharmony and beauty and peace and con ord By night when the myriadele tric lamps are lighted and reflected along the lagoons when the hands are playing and the din of the Pike isieard in the distance it is a dream of Fairyland exquisite sat isfyingand convincing Language can not exaggerate the truth about the Exposition nor can it convey to the mind of the person who has not seen it any just idea of the real merits of the Exposition as a whole It defies description and eludes analysis It isa world of pleasure which has a prize for every comer and which offers a sure and safe investment to every one who ventures within its boundsOf it is only necessary to say that it is an aggregation of remarkable side shows of more or less varied maret extending of eith er 5de of a broad highway fora mile and offering a variety of amusement and entertainment to suit every taste and to appeal t o every imagination It is like every other Midway which has been con structed at former expositions and yet unlike them m many particu lars It contains tfothing offensive and nothing to shock the moral sense It is a thing apart from the Exposition and yet every visit or to the Exposition is admitted free to the entire avenue of the Pike and it depends upon his own taste and inclination whether he will patronize any or these shows or not A word on the material side of a visit to the Exposition We state on the authority of our own expe rience inquiry and observation that visitors to St Louis can live as cheaply here as in their own tows and villages that they can get accommodation at any price they desire to pay and that they can secure good wholesome meals within the Exposition grounds at from twentyfive to fifty cents The accomodations for meals with in the grounds are abundant and varied and the prices vary accord ing to the service and quality of the fare provided Many of the restaurants are gotten up in the most lavish manner and provides vocaland instrumental music forth ir patrons while they are at the c 1 t r table and the viriety of these esr tablishments ranges from the m expensive down to the most ec nomical the patron of the Fair vj only to accommodate his taste and his purse If anybody is fleeced in St Louis it will he through his own fault and because he is carl less in the making of acquaint mces keepI ha ben like a summer resort iu
