How to smoothly hide loading message and show the fetched data.

I am using jquery to make an ajax call to get some data in meanwhile I am show user a loading gif, once the ajax call is successfull i am clearing the div which has loading symbol and showing the data fetched.

It looks a bit ugly though, hence wanted a second thought on it. Thanks
