was fine. Sou sa's band uiv'ns a number

The Cincinnati band handles waltzes

well pleased and all tastes were gratified.
Preparing for Excursions.
The council of administration have con
cluded that the time has arrived when it
is necessary to quicken the movement of
the turnstiles at the gates and lo this end
have adopted resolutions practically
abolishing the committee on ceremonies
and rescinding the rule regarding special
days, .wherein there was much red tape.
ITnder the new order the council is to
act promptly on every application sent to
it througn the director general for a spe
cial fete day. The true purport of this
order t to sr,-irt the excursion bnslnea at
oure and t" bring the railroad rates down.

Arrrntvf a Fatuous Correspondent.
Frederick Villiers, of London, a corres
pondent of the London Clack and White,
was arrested on Midway Plaisance for car
rying a camera without a permit from the
official lihotographer. The rule is that
newspadbr correspondents are permitted
to take fiews to be used solely for publica
tion in their papers. As the official pho
tographer has paid a large sum for the
privilega of being official photographer it
is natural and proper that he should not
desire this concession to be used by others.
and so he has detectives especially em
ployed to watch. There is nothing so
flear to the heart of the average human as
to do that which is forbidden and there is
always a row when the culprit is caught.
Mr. Villiers Very "Indignant. "
So it was in this case in a comparatively
flight degree. Mr. Villiers was soon re
leased, but was highly indignant and said
he thought it poor treatmeut for a corre
spondent taking pictures for his paper.
It is said also that the officers of the na
tional commission are highly indignant.
This is some more human nature. Mr.
Villiers is, of course, a well-known cor
respondent. But it might be possible
and as he is a man of undoubted fame won
by his own ability it probably is to get it
through his hair that everybody does not
know him; that in fact there are millions
of quite intelligent people in the wor' I
who "wouldn't know him from the siue
of a house." Even in London this is true.
They Are All on Their Dignity.
It is the same way with national
commissioners and others who find that
their fame and the alleged portraits of
them printed by the papers have not
made them known to the "birds in the
woods" even. And when one of the Co
lumbian guards or a gate keeper declines
to take the word of an utter stranger that
he is commissioner so-and-so, "from the
ELECTRIC LAUNCH PAPSIXQ MANUFACTURES
state of 'Buncombe' sir," or the head of
the turnip department b'gosh, there is a big
row, the papers join in the hue and cry and
it is aB charged to the poor guard or gate
keeper, instead of the "puffet-upedness" '
the otter fellow. These "indignant" people
might imitate one of the highest officials of
that fair, who finding himself without his
pass and a strange gatekeeper before!
him paid his fifty cents like a man.

Two thousand cirgarmakers marched
through Midway Plaisance during the aft
ernoon on their way from the Illinois Cen

"cigarmakers' day" as well as Decoration
Day, and the down-town tobacco rollers
were doing honor to America and their pro
fession. Just at 3 o'clock, in the square of
the German village. after numerous
speeches and songs, "Old Glory." with the
blue label of the Cigarmakers' union
stamped upon it, was raised. The flag
was hoibted on the cigar pavilion of the
village, where a new flagstaff had been
erected. After the ceremonies a banquet
was given at which a number of union ci
garmaker ouicials spoke, the day being
finished in seeing some of the sights.

of Surgery, Anaesthesia, and
"Dirt" and Disease.
In the afternoon the doctors were busy
as bees at the Art Institute, notwithstand
ing the many attractions outside. The
section of surgery held a session with Dr.
William B. Van Lennep, of Philadelphia,
in the chair. The inaugural address
was delirered by Dr. Horace Packard, of
Boston, whose subject wan "Anaesthesia.
Dr. J. L. McDonald, of Washington, read
a paper on "Surgical Shock." aA Contribu
tion to Thoracic Surgery" was the subject
chosen by Dr. H. L. Obeta, of Detroit, and
"Thoracotomy and Thoracoplasty" by Dr.
H. F. Biffffar. of Cleveland. Dr. G. F.
Shears, of Chicago, was closely listened to
on "The Treatment of Epilepsy, Idiocy and
Brain Troubles by Cranial Incision and
Excision." Dr. E. II. Pratt, of this city,
read a "Report on Orificial Surgery, Based
on an Analysis of 1,000 Cases."
The Eclectics were also in session. Pro
fessor Scudder read a paper on ".Etiology;
Dirt as a Cause of Disease," but he did not
explain away the fact that the Hualapai
Ind;an, of Arizona, who, it is safe to say,
never "bathes, owing both to the scarcity of
water and his well known antipathy to it,
lives longer on the average than his Cau'
casian brother wuo exercises every care,
and who hates dirt as much as the Indian
loves it. The subject of typhoid fever was
treated by Dr. John Simmons, of Hyde,
England, and II. J. Hampton, of Georgia.
A paper that may be of great interest if we
annex the Sandwich Islands was that on
"Ieprosy," read by Dr. Donald McLennan.
