Near tho Agricultural building
(which was described in our last
issue) is the Fortry buikliug, which
presents n very different appe-urauco
irom any of the other buildings, in
stead of bcirt covered with stal)
liko tho other buildings its tiides are
Constructed of slabs of lumber, tin d
Hurrouuding it U a veranda sf purl
ed by columns composed oi tracks
of trees in their natural state, with
the bark on their.. This gives i;iitc
a rustic appearance to this building
and also at a g'.anco gives an idea ol
the different vti idics id' timber that
tt'ro exhibited within. The rool is
thatched with lanbark, and tho in
terior is finished in various woods
fo as to bhow their beautiful grain
ing and glossy polish, in tiiii build
ing are exhibited the liu.bers and
ibrest products of every part of tho
world, not only huge logs and sec
'.ions of trees but worked lumber in
all shapes and designs. The exhibit
from JJrazil was especially attract
ive, and by far the best that we saw.
Such highly polished .ad large slabs
of mahogany wo had novcr before
(it-en, Tho .North C.ioliua exhibit
ih this building was one ol the btst
displayed by any Slate. Indeed
there were two exhibits from this
State one installed as the Slate's
exhibit by our Male officials and the
other being the private exhibit of
Mr. George Yauderbilt from his ex
tensive estate near Asheviile. .Colli
of these exhibits showed to great
advantage tho great variety 'and
superior quality of .North Carolina's
timbers, and are a valuable adver
tisement ol our forests.
Transportation building is the one
first reached by visitors, who arrive
on the elevated railroad or by the
steam cars, being nearest to the sla
tions ol those roads, and in appear
ance it is beyond all doubt one oi
the moift attractive on the grounds.
The main entrance, or grand portal,
on the east front i )iulrouiy mag
nificent and excites the admiration
of every visitor. It consists of a
scries of receding arches overlaid
with gold leaf, and ornamented with
striking allegorical figures and
groups in bas-relief. Tho building
ift 9G0 feet long ami '.'.V; feet wide,
and in the centre is surmounted by
iv cupola H)5 feet 'nigh. As its name
would iudicate. Transportation build
ing is filled with all kinds ol exhibits
that illustrate tho various modes ol
transportation since n.au's ciealiou.
Jloro are pre.ienled tho origin.!
growth and development ol the
various methods ol transportation
used in all ages and in ail parts of
tho world. 15y actual contrast here
may be seen and learned the won
derful improvements in all kinds of
vehicles. Here may he seen exact
reproductions of the ancient methods
of transportation mentioned i:i the
TJihle, and near It em may be seen
tho luxurious railway coaches of the
picsent day. Here are all sorts ol
wdiecled vehicles, of every kind and
description, and the continued im
provement in their construction,
d'uring successive ages, is very strik
ing and instructive. Indeed here
are presented object lessons that are
clearly and impressively taught,
which monthij and years of stmly
would bo consumed in learning in
any other way. Especially interest
ing aud instructive is the largo ex
lii bit of locomotives and railroad
couches. Here arc seen the peculiar
and quaint looking old curiosities
that wero first used as locomotives.
They certainly were strange looking
objects, in very striking contrast to
the monster and magnificent mod
ern, locomotives that stood near
thou). One of these old locomotives,
instead of a boiler, used a barrel.
There were several English locomo
tives and cars, tho latter being very
different in appearance and con
struction from the cars used in the
United States. They are much
smaller, lare enough to hold only
eight or tn passengers. Their door
do not open at the ends, but at the
side aud look exactly like the door
of a stago coach. It is strango that
the English use such small and in
conveniently arranged cars, for they
aro certainly not as comfortable as
our tars. Tho finest trait) of cars
that we saw was one from Canada,
Thoso cars wero made of mahogany,
lightod by electricity, and very
handsomely ornamented and furn
jshod. Tho I'ullinan Company have
a very altractivo exhibit, in which
are shown their most co:;t'y and
luxurious cars, and also a large
model of the town of IV.IIman, where
tho show of the company aro loca
ted. Tho marine exhibit in Transpor
tation building comprises every va
jrfcty of boats, from the old canon
aud dug-out to tho modern ' floating
palaces", as many steamers aro now
Very appropriately called. Many of
the great .ship building establish
ments of tho United Slates and

models, conspicuous ameuu,
which is tho model of the l?rilifh
warship "Victoria", which (that is, i
the model) is feet Ion" and cost i
In a ,.ro,ui.)e..rrositior. is j
a large model oi the hi. .tone, .-anta ,
Maria, in which Columbus sailed on
his celebrated voyage of discovery.
The appearanco of this ancient ship
pre.-enls a very striking contrast to
the ships of the present day, and on
seeing it one wonders how it ever
.survived a voyage across the Allan
tic. In this bui.ding the Northern
I'aci'ic l.'ailroad Company have a
very attractive exhibit of the pro
ducts of ll.o country traversed by
their system of roads. This exhibit
is displayed in a very handsome
railroad teach, made expressly for
the purpose for which it is used.
The polite office r in charge of this
exhibit is a native Southerner, who
immediately discovered that our
parly of visitors were from the South
by our accent and pronunciation.
And it may here be worthy of men
tion that Kottl'.erners can as quickly
recngniz.! Souther:. ers, from our
accent and pronunciation, as v e can
always tell a Northerner by his
sjieeeh. Jnoiieol the main aisles
of tins bidhling is a huge steam bam
mer, which is said lo be thu largest
in the world, !U feet high am! weigh

middle of the aisle, so that persons
walk directly under it, and as we
walked under it tho thought invol
n iit;iri!v arose "J list su mhisc it should

solation that could be suggested was

On the farm nro located the experi

StUge Corn anil SU o.
(P. E EMERY, AOIUCl'I.TCMST, EXPERI
riant your corn just as you would to
tnnUo a crop of frruin. Cut it up and
put in tho silo when the kernels are
well ghizod, that is, while the stalks
and moit of the leaves are still preen,
and the kernels ore beeinning to har
den. You can count 40 to SO pounds
per day for a muture uniiiml, enw or
mule, which would be 9,000 pounds per
Biiimal from Nov. 1st to May 1st. Foui
animals would eat 30.000 pounds.
There will necessarily bo some waste,
nnd you may want to feed another cow,
so we will raise this amount to 25 tons.
At 2.1 pounds per cubic foot, this will
require 2,(100 cubic feet. Ten feet
square and 20 feet high will be a pood
form. Perhaps you can pet out tho
timber needed for the walls nnd roof,
and need to buy only the boards,
slicathinir. nails, doors and hinpes, and
a window for the pable opposite the
If yon have a sldehill convenient to
your' i-tablo, you can put your silo in
to it so as to till from above to good
iidiantaire. Make a firm base wit ti i
oo.l foil filiation. I would use soini
cement to make a tipht bottom tin u
dry place well rinnned chi.v will do as
well' and lay the sills, which may be
of '-'in. x loin, plank doubled and spiked
toji'i'thcr. in ircsii cement.
A Mil of lumber sufficient to build
such a silo would be as follows:
