THE EXHIBITION.

TO THE EDITOR. Sib, —The following appears in last night's Stab :—" Of the four inscriptions that are to appear on the inside of the dome, the one facing the visitor on entering is ' Forli omne solumpatria.' These inscriptions are designed with exceptionally good taste." The designs may be in good taste, but I think it open to question whether it is good taste to use a dead language in such a place. How many, I wonder, of those who are expected to visit the Exhibition will be able to translate the above. An infinitesimal percentage, I am sure. I was at the Glasgow Exhibition last year, and all the inscriptions I saw there were in the Vulgab Tongue. Dunedin, October 24.
