Evidently the colonel is not desirous

Gov. Al.TUKLi has decided to call
the election of the Thirty-sixth sena
torial district to till the vacancy
caused by the death of Representa
tive Ernest Meyer. The election will
be called at once. The fureral ser
vices of Mr. Meyer were held Satur
day afternoon at the temporary resi
dence in Springfield. The obsequies
were simple but imposing, the ser
mon was preached by ltev. Nathan
Miehnik. pastor of the Jewish
church, and was of a touching ami
solemn nature. The family of the
deceased and legislative committee
then went in charge of the remains to
Alton, where they took a bout to
Grafton and thence to Peer Plain, the

The plan of publishing the value
at whic h assessors assess property is
being agitated, and the Chicago
Record says of the plan:
The publication of the assessor's
figures would reveal at a glance to
each property owner what each per
son owning property similar to his
own was assessed. Thus he could
determine tin; fairness of his own as
sessment. This would tend to make
all persons who might be overas
sessed rigorous critics of assessors
and aggressive in their demand for
fair play. The ultimate effect would
be the compelling of assessors to
raise the unreasonably low assess
ments and reduce those that were
excessively high. And the publica
tion of assessments would do more.
It would increase the difficulty
found bv assessors in attempting to
use their offices for "sandbagging"
taxpayers by the threat of excessive
assessments". It is safe to say that
if it were known that the assess
ments now making were to be pub
lished they would present widely
dilTerent characteristics from those
which they are likely to possess.
The fciimiaj- Object Lesson.
New York World,
The besieging of the closed gates of
the World's Fair on Sunday by a hun
dred thousand people afforded an ob
ject lesson on the combined injustice,
ntupidity and harm of the closing
which ought not to be lost on the
management if it is on those who sup
port this policy.
The demonstration proved that the
great majority of the people want to
visit the exhibition on Sunday, and
as the fair is a public enterprise, the
wish of the majority ought to be con
sidered. Finding that they could not gain
admission to the grounds the crowd
filled up the "Wild West show" and
vcrlloweil every side show and fakir
attraction within sight of the
"rounds. The saloons and the less
reputable resorts were likewise
thronjred. There is no evidence that
the churches had any more attend
ants than would naturally have
souirht them had the fair gates been
open. It is too late to coerce people
into going to church in this coun
On the financial side the Sunday
Closin" of the fair will be disastrous
to the enterprise. irom a moral
point of view it will be no less a fail
ure. Unless the management is demonstration-proof,
it will provide for
Sunday opening before another week
SOME BIG WOKDS.
TRANSLATED, "THE WORKS OF MAN."
One of the Most Interesting Exhibits to He
Seen at the World's Columbian Exposi
tion A Comparison of Heads Mummies
from the Tombs of the Incas.
World's Fats, May 10. Special
It goes without saying that the most inter
esting study at the Columbian exposition
is man himself. Here we have object
lessons not only in the man of the present
and his Industrial and artistic achieve
ments, bat graphio representatives of the
man of the past. Ethnology, anthropology
and archaeology are big words. To the
popular mind they suggest only dull and
dry scientific) inquiry. But in fact they
signify studies which are not only Interest
ing but fascinating. When it was decided
to have In the World's fair a department
devoted to this purpose the professor nat
urally wanted it called by its proper scien
tific title. The exposition managers, how
ever, said the words "ethnology," "anthro
pology" and "archaeology" would repel in
stead of attracting the people. Was there
not some popular title that would do just
as well? Possibly. The professor would
see. A little later, with a sigh for pro
fessional pride cast down, he reported that
a popular interpretation of the trio of big
words would be "Man and Ills Works."
So, "Man and His Works" it is. This
may not be a strictly accurate title, but it
suffices; besides, it doesn't drive people
away from the door.
This department has a building all of its
own, a large structure on the shore of
Lake Michigan but a little way from the
Convent of Rabida. There are sections of
this building which a superstitious man
will do well to stay away from, and which
timid people should avoid. It is rather
startling, indeed, to look up suddenly and
find one's self surrounded by several thou
sand grinning skeletons and skulls. It is
no relief to pass along and at the next
step to find yourself iu. the midst of a hun
dred mummies. The skulls are in two
principal collections. One is composed of
all the types of those peoples known to
the anthropologist as "long-headed,"
while the other is devoted to an exposition
of the characteristics and peculiarities of
the "short-headed" people. Between the
two are a largo numberof queer heads, de
formed heads, extraordinary heads that
can bo assigned neither t one class nor
to the other. Here also a ro seen in great
numbers types of the artificially formed
heads, most conspicuous among them be
ing the skulls of the Flathead Indians of
the northwestern part of eur even country,
who grew from infancy with boar. Is
THE KCIXS OF YTCATAS.
strapped tightly across their eraninrns.
But it is noticeable that this and similar
customs have existed among savage peo
ples m many parts of the world.
For months doctors and medical stu
dents have been going through the public
schools of the large American cities meas
uring the heads and bodies of boys una
girls. Probably many who read this letter
have had their heads measured, and as yet
do not clearly understand the why and
wherefore. All these measurements and
many thousands of them were taken ap
pear here in a most interesting form.
There are diagrams and charts showiny
the shapes of heads of American boys anil
girls who have had t he advantages of good
homes and educational development, and
these are compared with charts of the
heads of children of less favored peoples.
Very interesting are the diagrams of the
heads in Japan, and the charts which
show the influence mental training has
had upon the brains of tljg boys and girls
in American Indian schools.
The mummies carry us back a good
ways along the vista of time. There are
two or three hunured of them in all, and
they come from the tombs of the Incas of
Peru, from the caves of the cliff-dwellers
in Utah and New Mexico, from the burial
places of the ancient Egyptians and from
the Rraves of the prehistoric people who
Inhabited the region now known as Brit
ish Columbia. Except in tw or three of
the great government museums of Eu
rope no such collection of mummies as this
exists anywhere. The specimens from
South America, which are inoro numerous
than the other types, were collected by
Professor Dorsey of Harvard university,
who was employed for sixteen months in
the work. He and his assistants opened
127 graves and tombs and obtained 1S5
mummies. Some of the specimens were
obtained by excavation of great heaps of
sand, and these are the finest in the lot be
cause they were inttvet, with all their carv
ings and paraphernalia. Nearly all the
ancient tombs in Peru have been ravaged
by the moderns who eagerly sought tho
valuable trinkets of gold, silver and prc
cioiis stones which were buried with the
bodies of th'e ricE.
They are not pretty things, these mum
mies. They are ugly, almost, as death
itself. They show the remnants of their
teeth, the black strings of matted or
braided hair, the shriveled limbs often
without feet or hands, their eyeless eye
lockets in a manner calculated to make
the blood run fcolL The best specimen of
the collection, already Bpoken of, was ob
viously a man of considerable importance
when he walked the earth something like
a thousand or twelve hundred years ago.
Professor Dorsey told me how "He," as
the mummy is generally called by the
men who work about tho building, was
" 'He' had evidently seen better days,"
said the professor, "for he was not pitched
headlong into a hole and covered over with
Band, as most of his companions in the
burial placexf the Ancon plains had been.
It was in a rather odd way that we came
I npon him. I used rods to penetrate the
Oil, ULUl Hi: LI uuu.tuui (matauko w aw
progress was encountered we generally
dug down and found a mummy. On this
J occasion tho native who was manipulating
tne rod lor mo iouna uimseii unable to
push the instrument farther within tho
sand. As this wasaa every day occu rrenee
I thought nothing of it and would have
passed on hod not the native called me
back and insisted there was something ex
traordinary buried underneath. We re
moved the surfuce sand and came upon a
bed of hard clay; then wo knew we had
found something worth our attention, for
there is no clay within 200 miles of the
Ancon. Under the bed of clay we found a
roof that bod been made of bamboo splints
lashed together with willow withes. Un
der this was the grave proper. It was a
circular holo ten feet deep and in the cen
ter of it, sitting on his haunches, was 'He.'
From two stakes, one on his right and the
other on his left, hung two gonfalons, the
one at his right being a red flag and hav
ing embroidered upon it a perfect Greek
"All around," continued Professor Dor
sey, "were scattered articles of the finest
pottery. Examine them carefully and you
will see that they are of superior design
and workmanship. As we found them
they contained grain anr" vegetables, some
what Bhrivelled, of course, but in a re
markable state of preservation. It was
easy to determine tho contents of the jars
to be corn, beans, potatoes, dried shell
fish and other articles of food. One jar
had evidently contained a fluid, put there
to quench the thirst of the mummy. It
seemed almost a pity to disturb such an
august personage after a thousand years
of rest, but we wanted him at the World's
fair and here he is."
It would take pages instead of columns
even to mention the interesting exhibits
in this building which reach out into the
dark past and throw light upon the con
dition and the development of mankind
through the ages. In fact, one may trace
the growth of his race from the rudest
savagery to its present high state of civili
zation. It is a wonderful object lesson in
the history of mankind. Here the eye of
the visitor is carrietf back to the days of
the Assyrians, the Greeks, the Romans,
the Egyptians. Their tombs, their ruins
have licen ransacked that we may have
the object lessons of what they were and
of how they lived, their religion, their
sports, their battles, their agriculture,
their domestic establishments, their arts
and their industries. It would be difficult
to imagine anything more interesting, nnd
I predict that this building, small beside
its mammoth neighlors but mighty in
the ages of time and periods of human
change and progress which it covers, will
soon be crowded from early morning till
late at night.
The outdoor exhibit is quite as fascinat
ing as that within tho building. It is a
sort of supplement to the interior display.
Here are not only tho tents, bouts,
weapons, clothing and utensils of primi
tive peoples, but the people themselves.
On the shores of the pond near the Anthro
pological building are grouped representa
tives of various triln-s of Indians from
North America. They live in their primi
tive habitations, row their rude boats or
canoes, and engage in their customary oc
cupations, such as weaving, pottery, chip
ping flint, building canoes, dressing skins
and grinding com. Ifono is interested in
the American Indian and who is not
he may ptiss many an interested and well
spent hour in the Indian school which will
bo in operation near by.
New York contributes to this ethno
graphical display a council house and long
bark lodgu of tho famous Iroquois, and a
number of typical houses used by the va
rious tribes which formed the powerful
Iroquois confederation. Tho Indians nro
here, too, living in the houses, reproducing
their ceremonies and "Middling about iu
their cat.x s. Never before was such a
good opportunity afforded for the study of
the habits of the aboriginal dwellers in
our own land. If one wishes to see tho
more modern Indian in Ids war paint, rid
ing his pony in battle or chase, he has but
to visit Buffalo Bill's show without the ex
position grounds. .
One of the most picturesque displays
here is that of the ruins of Yucatan. The
structure which seems to show the queer
architecture ami decorations of these nn
cient people was skillfully built, nnd its
facades and carvings are made
from plaster casts taken by Consul
Thompson amid the ruins of Babna
and Uxmnl. The structures rep
resented are the Serpent house, the House
of Nuns, and the so-called Governor's
house. There are also moulds, columns
and monoliths from the prehistoric city of
Capan. Tropical plants from Central
America have been brought here nnd clev
erlyarrnnged over and about t he ruins. All
hnt is needed to complete the illusion is
the presence of a few snakes basking in
the sun or running to hide themselves in
A few rods from tho Yucatan ruins are
tho picturesque homes of theclifT-dwellers.
With consummate art the builders imi
tated rocks wit h a frame-work covered o'er
with sheet iron, tin and paper-macho, with
just enough natural rock scattered about
to perfect the illusion. There are habita
tions within the mass of rock, and speci
mens of the ancient Pueblos or Aztecs to
live in them. There nro also mountain
sheep and tho little burros used by the
cliiT-dwcllersas beasts of burden. From
the ruins of Yucatan and the cliff-dwellings
of Mexico and our own southwestern
borders to the ice-bound habitations of the
Esquimaux is a long way, but they are all
here on the shores of tho pond. A sort of
half-way house is afforded by the village
of Vancouver islanders, with their boats
made by hollowing out iogs with fire and
primitive tools, and their hideous wooden
idols or totem poles, standing thirty or
forty feet high on tho banks of the lagoon.
Two hundred yards away, on the other
side of tho pond, are tho headquarters of
the gondoliers; and tho Venetians in their
gay costumes of two or three centuries ago
add a dashing bit of color to tho strange
In this extraordinary commingling of
tribes and races historic and prehistoric
one may see Indians from British Guiana,
standing liefore their thatched huts,
Navajos weaving rugs, Tuscaroras and
Onondagas making baskets, Winnebagos
and Omahas colormg skins, a few Flat
heads with tho boards tied upon the crania
pf the children, Esquimaux in their kyaks,
Laplanders with their reindeers; and in
the throng which moves about to see these
children of nature are Amazons from Da
homey, Japanese and Javanese, the mild
mannered native of Ceylon, actors from
China, Moors, Egyptians and Arabs, and
representatives of all the nations of the
eah. Waltei; Wellman.
An abundant evidence of the persistency
and daintiness for which the Japanese are
noted is to be seen in their exhibit in the
the Manufactures building. What will
attract as much attention as anything is a
completed Japanese house finished in. all
the stvle of the mode and ready for occu
j pancy by tho best family of the kingdom.
