That which makes a good Constitution must keep it, viz.: Men of wisdom and virtue ;
There are some moderately intelligent people in the East who have thought it a mark of personal or local superiority to affect indifference about this World's Fair. There are a few people of high intelligence and of excellent sense who really feel no particular interest. The first class is not deserving of attention. As for the second class, it is merely a case of pre-occupation and unaroused curiosity. Long before the Fair is ended these people will have discovered it, and they will atone for their earlier lack of interest by the higher degree of their subsequent enthusiasm. This paragraph, however, is meant particularly for many thousands of our readers living farther East, let us say, than Ohio, who must make careful plans in advance if they are to go to Chicago at all, and who are now asking whether or not it will be really worth their while to make effort and sacrifice to visit the Exposition. No general advice can fit all particular cases, but so far as general principles can have any bearing, let us all decide that it will be immensely worth while to go. Students, teachers, all classes of men and women who have healthfully inquiring minds, would make no mistake in planning to spend as much as possible of the summer at Chicago or in that vicinity. The opportunities for advantageous study will be almost limitless. Our industrial arts and our art industries will find a new birth in this Fair. Fine arts will obtain a powerful impetus. Our educational methods will be improved by it. The whole world will be brought nearer together. The cause of peace among the nations will be promoted. The world's religions will have renounced somewhat of their mutual bickerings and hatreds, and will have seized more firmly upon the principle of Love. Do not lightly decide that you can afford to dispense with the benefit of some personal contact with all this vast congeries of undertakings. It was a great thing to be at Philadelphia in 1876, and at Paris in 1889; but it will be far more than either or both to be at Chicago in 1893.—Review of Reviews. .
