"You have a beautiful city and your
fair is ono of the best things of the
kind I have even seeu. The baby par
ade was something entirely new to me
aud the wealth of flowers used iu dec
orating the carriages was such as to
make eastern people staro iu . wonder
and almost fail to boliove. You do not
appreciate your flowers simply because
you have them in such boundless pro
fusion that they aro common.
" Hverything is perfect about your
fair but ono thing, and of course thuVe
I must always be something, some spider
in the dumpling to let man know that
I ho can never accomplish perfection.
This one thing is the luctt of light after

beautifully lighted but I noticed the
stores wero dark. This gave the busi
ness section a gloomy appearance no:

Outside of the business features,
though, it is right that the business sec
