Woman's Work at the Fxir.
(By Kmilv Grant Untchin-j )
St. Louis. JstBe li. The important
puce ox women iu the world.- econ
omy it fullv set forth at the Louisiana
purchase exposition. In every depart
rofnt ner influence ani tystf are dem-
onatrated. From Trie rTfcme M feMi

That women .-in- a Mr to eope with
men in aim on I all held of human ac
tivity has been proved within the past
decade. The world's fair visitors whose
exposition standards are based upon
wii.it they nam at the Chicago fair. II
ear ago. are apt to ask, after a tour
of the grounds, "Where h yostr aro
meata building? 1- there tuj pavilion
where the work of women i rM-piay-ed?
Are women Ignored altogether
at jmir great world';- fair?"
Then the mind wander- back to the
beaajtifaj womai's iuiiding at ('hi

there is a fee ting of regret thai the
"iiiniissioners shoukl have forgotten
or Ignored their sisters and wives,
their danghtera and sweethearts. Vel
the women were do forgotten. The
shy. timid creature who could be oaer
looke 1 or relegated to the background
has hut remote connection with the
American woman of today. She i a
creature of the i;i t . and ha her place
hav - -tii,- the strong, capable, en
lightened woman of tin- twentieth
century, who doe n-'t force herself to
the front, but who takea her place
there by reason of what she i- and
wh.it she can accomplish.
We no longer hear oi the "poefte--."
the "doetores.-." the "authored," but
w have more women poet-, doctors
and author- than ever before. And so
it were a confession of inferiority and
weakness to huddle the products of
Woman's hands in a building by them
selves, aa if women were afraid of a
comparison with men. aa if their work
could have no pi ssible chance for
award when brought into competition
with t he work of men.
The net of COUgl'CS that made the
Louisiana purchase exposition a pos
silii'it outlined the work of the
board of lady managers in Such terms
;i; to preclude the possibility of any
separation in the work of men aud
women. In every department the sex
distiactkm i- eliminated, the work of
men and women being admitted on
exactly the same basis. The fact thai
there is to be a woman on each jury

not to women, but to the men Oil tie
jury, who are mueh less likely to
know about the things made exclusive
1 by women than is the modern wo
ii .in. with her insatiable thirst for
knowledge, to know about the work
of men. the work in which she ba
llot yet taken a hand.
In the administ rat i ve departments
of the exposition mnefa of the mosl
important work baa been intrusted to
women, and their compensation Is
the siime as that paid to men holding
similar positions. In a few Instances,
women have performed mission- and
accomplished task- that would bare
resulted in failure had they ben in
t rusted to men.
When the federal goverameal asaa
asked for a loan of four and one-half
million- of dollars, Mrs. Daniel Man
ning, president of the board of
lady managers, went to Washington
and lobbied for the bill among the
friend- of her distinguished husband,
thus securing enough rotea to insure
There was a genera! wish on t li e
part of the American people that
Queen Victoria's jubilee preseBta
might form a part of the greal expo
sition. That these priceless treasures
would SCtuallj be sent to St. Louis
to remain on exhibition for st-ven
months was thought to be Impossible,
for the world remembered with what
precautions and anxiety they were
sent through the Cnited Kingdom, a
62 A 04
few years ago. Yet Miss Florenee
Hay w ard, the Well-knUwn w riter of
St. lataia. who is as well known in
London as she is in her native city,
agreed to undertake the delicate mis
sion. The fact that thousands daily-
climb the hill to the croup of admin-!
bttration buildinir- for the purpose of
inspecting these tokens of loyalty
to the nest of all queen monarchs is
sufficient evidence of the success of
Miss Hay ward's W rk.
In the department of education and
r ocial ecori'imv. the jreat education

.Mr. Kodcera has been assisted bv a
woman whose knowledge of education

When the Missouri building, the
most important of all the state build
ings, was designed, a place was made
for a piece of sculpture that all the
should pee. The enormous

statue embodying the spirit of Mis

to Mis- Carrie Wood. who. as a child.
had plaved in rorest park where now
the Missouri buildine stands.
The interior decorations of the gov
rumeul pavilion, carried out so ef
fectively in the color and design of the
national flair, were done bv Miss Grace
Lincoln Temple. of Washington.
The Hne work of the landscaDe de
partment was planned largely by a
woman who has been for several year
Mr. Ke-sler's trusted assistant. The
young lady is Miss Ada A. Sutenteis
ter. a trained landscape architect.
To In r fell the task anil the oppor
tunity of arra nging the decorative
planting for the beautiful cascade
gardens a ad many of the other orna
mental landscape decorations, she is
at once a business woman, an artist
and an unfailing judge of plants.
The extensive exhibit.- that made
the long journey from Alaska to St.
Louis, the collection of furs, miner
als, photographs and all other inter
esting objects from that remote ter
ritory, came under the direction anil
management of a capable and much
traveled woman, Mrs. Mary 15. Mart.
The secretaries of several of the
state commission- arc ladies, and the
big office- in the administration build
ing are filled with women employed in
every capacity from that of newspa
per reporter to custodian of photo
graphs. In the department of sculpture
women are conspicuously represent

drels over the arches of the north
an 1 east entrances to the palace of
machinery were done by Miss Melva
Ileal rice Wilson, il Nc York. An
other Sew York woman, Mi-s Keith 15.
Stevens, modeled the splendid figures

arch that is the main entrance to the
palace of liberal arts. These figures,
because of their position, only a few
feet above the eye- of the beholder.

many of the larger groups of roofliac
Among the IT portrait statues that
line the approaches to the cascade
garden-, four were the work of w o-
men. These are Daniel Boone, by
Knid Yandell; George Sogers ('lark,
by Klsje Ward: .lames Madison, by
Janet Beudder, and Janacs Monroe, by
Julia Bracken. And a greater tri
umph for woman than any of those
that have been described remains to
be mentioned. Behind the great main
cascade, and at the Center of the ma
jestic colonade of states, stands the
beautiful temple of music and oratory,
festival ball. Whose mighty dome, tow
ering 200 feet in air. is larger than
that of t. Peter'- of the Pantheon at
Rome. This dome, that overlooks the
entire exposition grounds, the city,
ami a wide expanse of farm land to
the west, is crowned by the work of a

sion was not assigned to a woman. A
man was to have modeled the victory
for the dome of festival hall. At the
last moment he fell ill. or eras called
abr- id. or but it is needless to -pecu
late as to the cause of his tailure to
deliver the model from which the col
ossal figure should have been enlarg

until it was too late to give another
commission. si Mr. Hitter was con

Mi.-s Evelyn Ik Longman had modeled
a victoria for the dome of the palace
of varied industries that was an en
tiretv new conception as a victory
Ever since the Xike of Amothrace
sprung into marble flight in com
memoration of the great Greek tri
umphs-. the accepted figure of victory
has been that of a woman. Miss Long
ham mdcled a vigorous young ath
lete. his purple figure poised on tin
tips of his toes, his lips parted as if
in a shout of triumph and his hand
extended with the victor's wreath
This figure was found to be not mere
ly the beat, but the only one that wa
realh worthv of the loftiest point of
decoration in the irreat decorative
scheme of the grounds.
So the victory that crowns th
dome of festival hall is the crowning
