The Unknown West and The World's
The greatest distinction that has
vet come to the World's Fair at St.
Louis is that it is widely proving to
be the best popular educator of the
twentieth c-entury. Famous educa
tionists like Dr. William Torrey Har
ris. United States Commissioner of
Education: President Harper, of the
Chicago University: President Eliot,
of Harvard. and Dr. F. Louis Soldan,
of St. Louis, have. each according to
his free way of thought, expressed
themselves as having been, as being.
uplifted at the prospect of general en
lightenment which repeated visits to
the Fair afford to those who go with
their hearts attuned to its wonders.
None of the latter stands out in great
er relief than what might be called
the human, or more particularly the
ethnical side of the great undertaking.
It is in the assembly of the world's
strange people that the Louisiana Pur
chase Exposition offers the thinking
man and woman the best opportunity
for that widening of the mental hori
zon which is at once the need and
joy of the rational human being. In
a word the poet's fine. dictum: The
proper study of mankind is man

casual visit to St. Louis at this the
best season of the year for travel and
Perhaps no department in all the
varied anthropology of the Fair is
better equipped than that in which
the native races of America are to be
seen. Of Indian shows, so-called,
which place before his Caucasian ob
server the evidences of the Indian's
degeneracy there are the usual num
ber. But there is only one part of
this human division allotted to the
real Indians, the descendants of the
Cliff Dwellers, otherwise known as
the Mokis, Zunis and Pueblos of the
.Painted Deserts of the Colorado river
in Arizona and New Mixico and the
erosion-scarred donains of the great
southwest. These Zunis, Mokis and
Pueblos are only to be found at the
Cliff Dwellers exhibit at the great
Fair and this exhibit, by the way, is
the only one in which these remark- 1
able redskins can be found living in
the heart of the great metropolis of
the Mississippi Valley precisely as is
the case, as has been the case for thous
ands upon thousands of years in the
unknown west above referred to.
They have built for themselves at the
Cliff Dwellers C'oncession a home in
a huge artificial rock that' towers
hundreds of feet above the surround
* ing territory and in the cliffs of that
stony mass they live their daily lives
precisely as at home in the Painted
Here too they show their pastimes
which are marny and curious. Here
they reveal themselves as human be
ings, humble and circumscribed, per
haps, but unmistakably showing the
wondrons effects of thousands of
years of peace. For the Zuns, Mokis
*and Pueblos of the Painted Desert
have never been at war with the white
man. There was, there is nothing
in their visible possessions to tempt
the cupidity of the superior race. The
barren rocks they occupy in the un
known. west would never satisfy the
land-hunger of the pale faces and
.thereby the Mokis, Zunis and ,Pueblos
have been saved to posterity with all
their tribal perfections to their credit.
Wonder seizes the man and woman
of good will in witnessing their
rites; their sun, moon and season
dances; their incantations for rain,
there ceremonials complete and fas
cinating as these have been presented
during countless ages, long before the
white man came. One dance, the
weirdest in North American ethnol
ogy, the Snake Dance, has. not been
known to white men longer than a
few years. It was first seen by hardy
explorers in 1897. It is a marvel and
thousands now see it every day at
the Cliff ,Dwellers Concession at the
great World's Fair in St. Louis.

ARIOSTO OF TITIAN.
American Money Helped to Buy
$15o,ooo Picture For England.
The famous portrait of Ariosto, by
Titian. which has just been purchased
for the British nation. is now on ex
hibition at the National Gallery in
Trafalgar Square. ' It was bought
from Sir George Donaldson, the
wealthy amateur, for $i5o,ooo, that
being the same price at which he ob
tained it from Lord Darnley. Of the
the purchase money $92,ooo was pro
vided by private subscription. J. Pier
pont Morgan and William Waldorf
Astor being the most generous con
tributors to the fund. The other
contributors were Lord Iveagh, Lord
Burton, Lady Wantage and Alfred
Beit. The remaining $58,ooo was
furnished by the government.
This relic of "the universal master"
competent critics have pronounced

trait of Charles V., which is one of
the most prized art teasures of Spain.
The canvess measures about two and
a half feet across by four feet in
length. The poet is represented
against a middle green-gray back
ground and leaning upon a stone bal
cony or parapet. He wears a loose
quilted robe of dark hazel color, care
lessly thrown over the right shoulder,
which is turned toward the beholder,
affording a close three-quarter view
of his face.
One of Titian's maxims, it is said,
was to hold fast to the three main
tones of white, black and red. In the
picture the first two are easily per
ceived, but it is in the fulness and'
contour of the lips one sees where the
artist has preserved and concentrated
the dominant note of color. .It is
the poet's mouth which has received
the utmost worship of the brush. The
lips are full and sensuous, despite
their compression, and stand out
prominently from the luxuriance and
fine black texture of the beard. The
blackness of the hair throws the high
lights of the cheeks and brow into
strong relief, but the eyes balance and
control everything in their quiet pen
etration and sagacity. They are
small, but turned askance upon the
spectator, and with the tilt of the
head, are strongly suggestive of
courtly pride and representatives of
the renaissance period.
