SAX FRANCISCO. Jan. 1L (Special.)
One who seeks to set a definite Idea
of the scope of the Panama-Pacific Ei
nosltlon. especially one who has the
notion that It la an exposition that can
be seen in a few days, can disprove this
notion to himself most easily by start
ing In to see as much as possible of it
in one day.
The expression, "as much as possible.
Is used advisedly, for he would be a
g-weary wight who attempted even
to walk over the whole grounds In
day. and even then he would have to
walk: too rapidly to pay mucn attention
fa details alonr the way.
It must be borne In mind also that
the details to be observed at this time
axe chiefly details of decoration and
architecture, for the exhibits are Just
borlnnlnr to ro Into place. When
each Dlace and pavilion la tilled with
Ha hundreds of booths full of exhibits

might hope to "do" with any degree of
thoroughness, and at that he probably
would be obliged to carry away with
Mm enough undigested Impressions to

Ttwer mt Jewels Takes Eye.
There are eight entrances to the
grounds. Probably the best one to start
In at is the entrance at the foot of
Scott street, which brings one face to
face with the great Tower of Jewels,
which stands above the Court of the
Universe and dominates the architec
ture of the entire exposition.
It Is the tiara of the Panama-facinc
Exposition. Soft reddish bun in tne
ground tones of its walla, sitting on
massive columns dappled like tine mar
ble, its first stage rises in a trlumpnai
jtrch. through which one glimpses the
sunken gardens of the Court of tne uni
verse and far beyond facing toward tne
bay. the adventurous bowman upon the
Column of Progress. Above the trl
umpbal arch rido the mounted figures
of the old conquistadors, with steeds
stepping boldly and flags straining in
the wind, and above them the tower
circles up, stage after stage, to a height
of 422 feet, where it is capped by an
intricate begemmed globe.
Before entering the courts that con

the Court of the Universe, one turns
aside to the west near the entrance to
glance at the Horticultural palace.
which stands separate from the main
croup of palaces. Its dome of glass
bulges up like a titanic soap bubble
above the graceful green and buff of
the walls and pillars.
OrrKoi Boots Progresses.
In the wings of the building booths
are being hurried to completion, ready
for the Installation of exhibits. The
Oregon booth, which is a substantial
building of log construction, large
enough to take up a big section of a
city block. Is well on toward comple

other exhibit booths in the Horticul
We pass through the gardens and
cross the grand esplanade to view the

and beautified by the masses of shrub
bery that cluster against it.

Then, on under the archea eastward,
