value of human interest will be given many of them by reason of local connection and reference, Thus, the reproduction the famous battle between the Monitor and the Merrimac on the identical spot where it took place on April 8-9. 1862, will be of a nature to stir up the deepest patriotic emotion.

HE aquatic features of the great expositions at Chicago, St. Louis, Portland,

and other places have always made the strongest appeal to visitors. The Jamestown Exposition will present an absolutely novel entertainment the beautiful and historic waters adjacent thereto that must find favor with its patrons.

During the exposition period the representative warships of our navy and the visiting navies of the world will rendezvous on Hampton Roads. In order to provide people living inland with an opportunity to view our nation's pride—also the enormous and

powerful battle-ships and foreign sea-fighting craft—at the same time, see the exposition and its historic surroundings by water, a "belt line” of palatial observation steamers will be placed in commission by a company directed by Mr. H. F. McGarvie, one of the best known exposition concessionnaires in this country, which has the full indorsement of the Governors of the Exposition Company and the assurance of their hearty co-operation. The picturesque and historic interest of a water trip to the exposition grounds is assured those who patronize this new enterprise.

Each steamer will carry about 1,000 passengers without crowding. A regular schedule of trips will be made, the boats starting from Campbell's Wharf, in Norfolk, touching at Portsmouth, the Norfolk Navy Yard, Newport News, Old Point Comfort, Fortress Monroe, and other historic points en route, and completing the one-way trip at a fine pier to be built out into the waters of Hampton Roads, directly in front of the exposition site. Boats will run every hour. A unique feature of the plan is to issue coupon tickets on these trips, giving the passengers the privilege of disembarking at any or all of the stopping places.

The “Water Belt Line” is so named because of the fact that the steamers leaving the company's wharf on their daily schedule, every hour, will make a complete circuit of the points of interest in and about Hampton Roads. Direct service will be maintained between Newport News, Old Point Comfort, and the exposition grounds.

Besides the regular trips, the company is planning to have numerous excursions to such places as Jamestown Island, Yorktown, and other points of historic interest in and around tidewater Virginia. The value of these pilgrimages will be thoroughly appreciated by all those who are familiar with their country's history.

Combining as this innovation does, a view of the beautiful exposition and an opportunity to get in close touch with those points of interest so dear to our patriotic souls, there can be no hesitancy in saying that nothing like it has ever been offered before by any country or any people.
