accident in handling. For all tois care, labor, risk and liberality the clan should hold him in grateful remembrances. It is gratifying to know that the monument was in every respect, in design and erection as well as provision and payment, a family affair.

We are happy to be able to give in connection with the Monument a good portrait of Mr. Charles H. More, late of Boston, Mass., now of Barre, Vermont, who designed and erected it. The work does bim the highest honor, and his name will always be associated with it.

Mr. More is a thoroughly self-made man, as the sketch of his life furnished for the History will clearly show. He has built up a large and remunerative business in marble and granite, having of late made a specialty of granite, both native and foreign, importing largely from Scotland.

To his large executive abilities he adds artistic taste of the first quality. We wish him what we are sure he will enjoy-increasing success. He belongs to the Fifth Generation, and is the son of 4 James E. More, of Roxbury, N. Y., son of 3 Henry, son of 2 Jonas, son of 1 John. He was born in Roxbury, Nov. 26, 1857, and was therefore not quite 33 years old at the time the monument was erected.

He not only furnished the monument without any profit, but spent much time, labor and travel in designing, arranging and erecting it. Besides these he took a great risk in case of breakage from

THE MONUMENT. We give in this issue a picture of the monument erected at the Re-union, in order that those who did not attend may see it.

Vice-President Otis P. More has seen that the lot was well cared for. The grass which always roots well in Roxbury has covered the lot with a good turf. It has been cut frequently and appeared green and smooth during the last summer.

The iron fence which surrounds the lot has been well painted since the Re-union and is in good condition. The monument is in a perfect state of preservation and commands the attention and admiration of all visitors. The shade trees along the street near it have been well trimmed and enable the monument to be seen more plainly in approach. ing it from the North.

The monument does honor both to the filial motive which erected it, those whom it commemorates and our cousin, Charles H. More who designed it. One of New York city's well-known artists who was a summer visitor in Roxbury when it was erected, said that its proportions were perfect and the design admirable. The cost of the monument and lot was in round numbers $3,000.

COLUMBIAN VISITORS' ASSOCIA


The advantages of securing accommodations at an early date will be fully appreciated by all.

The necessity of providing sufficient accommodations for the great multitudes who will accept the invitation has led to the organization of the

COLUMBIAN VISITORS' ASSOCIATION, which will provide suitable Hotel Accommodations for members of the Young Mens Christian Associations, Young Peoples' Societies of Christian Endeavor, and all others who desire congenial surroundings and, above all, to be located where the due observance of Sunday as a day of rest will be maintained. In advance of the opening of the Exposition

A HOTEL WILL BE ERECTED by the Association for the use of its members. This hotel will be located near the Exposition grounds, and within easy access to the principal lines of transportation. It will be under the control rt the officers of the Association, and only Christiar men will be connected with its management.

The European plan has been selected in order that each member may live as cheaply as may be desired.

THE RESTAURANT AND CAFE will be under the management of an experienced Caterer, and the prices will be as low as consistent with first-class service.

The entire building will be lighted by electricity, and every convenience necessary for the comfort and pleasure of the members will be provided.

Membership in the Association will be limited to Christian people and the friends whom they may see fit to reccommend to the Association.

THE MEMBERSHIP FEE of two ($2) dollars entitles the members to reduced rates during the entire time they shall remain at the hotel ; to choice of dates in the order in which their membership tickets are issued ; and to receive all printed information which shall be issued by the Association, and places at their disposal a reliable

BUREAU OF INFORMATION. At the time the fee is paid, the Member will be required to state the approximate number of days for which accommodations will be desired. This number may be increased at any time before the dates are selected, but accommodations will not be sold to any one for less than ten days.

ADVANCE PAYMENTS for accommodations will be required from the members as follows: $2.50 on each of the following dates : April 1, July 1, and October 1, 1892, and January 1, 1893. These payments are required as a guarantee that the accommodations secured will be used, and will entitle the member to ten (10) coupons, good for ten (10) days' accommodations in the hotel,

AND TO THE SAME RATE for all additional accommodations desired, payment for which can be made on the day of arrival at the hotel.
