FA11US HALF OVER
Its Wonders Seen by 6,500,
000 Persons Who Paid.
HOW THE DIRECTORS ABE FEELING,
Satisfied Except in One Very Important
Kespect President Higlnbotham Hope
ful of the Next Three Months, but Not
Looking for Any Dividend on Stock
Aid for a Teachers' Home Thacher
Talks Hack at the Tress.
Chicaoo, Aug. 1. When the guards
and gatemen closed and locked the gates
of Jackson Park last night one-half of the
World's fair period had passed into his
tory. Three months of the big show had
elapsed and only three months remain
before exhibitors will begin to move out
their displays and the work of tearing
down the White City will begin. With
the first half of the exposition the direct-
DESK -M.VI1K OF I.11WY I'l.I.SON MOOD,
ors are ail highly satislied except in one
respect. The exposition is all that any
one could expe: t, nnd more than any one
can realize, Imt the attendance has been
miserably small. For various reasons
people have not come to the fair as it was
expected they would come, and unless
there is a wonderful increase i-i the at
tendance during the remaining period the
managers of the big show will be troubled
to pay its debts.
lliinlxktlium Not Discouraged.
President Higinbotham said that in re
spect to admissions "the first half is by no
means the better half. I believe that the
attendance from now on will steadily in-,
crease. I believe that the admissions this
week will exceed those of last. There
have now lieeu about 6,500,000 admissions.
Certainly more than that many will bj
registed duriug the rest of the fair and the
total attendance will more than dTotiDle
those figures. The railroads are using us
now better than they have been doing anil
the trains that are coming into town are
carrying more people than formerly." Re
plying to a question as to money for stock
holders Mr. Higinltotham said: "I am
afraid that any money that has been in
vested in that way is gone."
Arrival of a Woman Pedestrian.
Mrs. Lucille Rodney has arrived at the
World's fair, nnd by so doing won a wnger
of $.-,lMK). Mrs. Rodney lives in Galves
ton, Tex., nud has made herself the owner
of the amount named by wall. i tig all the
way from her home. Tne terms of the
wager were that she was to start May 10,
carry thirty-eight pounds of baggage as
far as Dallas, to count railway tie all the
way from Galveston to Chicago, to make
$500 eu route by selling her photographs,
and to arrive at the fair grounds. on or be
fore Aug. 1. All this the little woman has
accomplished and has covered the entire
distance with about sixty hoursto sixire,
Mrs. Rodney is. a pretty, petite brunette
and talks iu a mumicr that would lead
one to think slie had. not accomplished u
great feat. ,
4 Thacher Tackles the Papers.
The criticisms of the local press on the
head of the awards bureau," Chairman
Thacher, have aroused that gentleman to
retort in kind. . At a meeting of the na
tional commission he inveighed against
the local papers for abusing him and for
originating all the charges t hat had been
circulated against the exposition. uXo
mutter what 1 say it will go -out to the
country misconstrued and misinterpreted,"
said Thacher. "One would think, to read
the papers, that John Boyd Thacher had
not a friend in Cook county; that no one
cares for the committee on awards, and
that the awards feature of the fair was
moribund and obnoxious. All the bad
things and all the injurious things said
about the fair have come from the press.
It all comes from what is known as 'com
mon talk.'" And there is much truth in
what Thacher said.
For a A ery Worthy Object.
On account of the charitable nature of
the enterprise the exposition n anagement
to a certain extent has interested itself
in and approved the sale of a splendid
souvenir of the World's fair. The pro
ceeds of the sale of the souvenir, which is
in the shape of broaches and pins, are to
lie devoted to the erection of a "Teachers
Home" in America, similar to that which
has been iu existence in England for many
years. The bouvenir is a shield bearing
the Columbus coat of arms, and is for sale
in all the buildings.

The New York state buildjug is in

grounds. It is not the first time that the
grim terror has been there, but his victims
heretofore have been victims by accident.
This time death appeared in the ordinary
way. Executive Commissioner MeXaugh-
ton, of Isew xork, died of disease in the
state building. All the state commissions
and the national commissioners adopted
appropriate resolutions. The body was

for several days international congresses
on this subject will be in session. The
largest of the three gatherings is the con
gress of engineers, and it bids fair to be
the most important convention of its kind
ever held. Over 500 delegates have already
registered, and among these are many A
the foremost men in the profession in this
country and Europe. The engineering
congress is divided into seven departments,
representing the different branches of the
engineering profession civil, mechanical,
mining, metallurgical, military, marine.
There was a notable departure from the
rule observed in the congresses that have
already been held. Instead of long papers
being read in open session copies were dis
tributed among the delegates for their
perusal, and the proceedings consisted
mainly disensions of their contents. In
he division of civil engineering the open
ing address was dilivered bv William Met-
calf, president of the American Society of
tivii .ng1neers,and the principal paper was
presented by R. Caesar, building counsel

who described the methods by which

In the afternoon the engineers went to

Burnham made one of the few speeches
credited to him in connection with
World's fair functions. The one great les-
sion of the exposition. Mr. Burnham said,
had been to throw aside divisions and
unite in one brotherhood. Eckley Coxe,
president of the American Society of Me
chanical Engineers, echoed the sentiments
of Mr. Burnham. The field was too vast,
he said, for any one of the professions to
sny "We have it all." After the speaking
the engineers visited the Ferris wheel, !

terest to the profession.
1 he architects held an interesting series
of discussions at the Art institute.
ROMANCE OF THE EXPOSITION.
An Aged Iivor cI Pair Reunite.! at the
Yankton, S. D., Aug. 1. II. W. White,
the well-known inventor of this city-, was
married six years ago to Mrs. G. Wheeler,
relict of an old Yankton citizen. After a
year of married life Mrs. White went east
and shortly thereafter Mr. White secured
a divorce from hei. In May last Mr.
White went, to the World's fair with an in
dividual exhibit consisting of an invention
of his own, and this exhibit attracted wide
attention in the Liberal Arts building.
In June Mr. White was taken very ill.
and Mrs. White heard of his indisposition.
She went from her home in Ohio to Chi
cago and nursed her former husband back
to health. They became lovers again, and
two weeks ago weie married the second
time. They are now at home in Yankton.
Mrs. Wheeler is Mr. White's third and
fourth wife, and has been three times a
brute. Mr. W hite is past 70 years old and
his lwide has seen 65 winters.
An Excursion from Nevada.
San Fkaxcisco, Aug. 1. A strictly Ne
vada excursion train, called the Silver
S"tate excursion is now being organized to
run direct from Reno, Nev., to the World's
fair on Sept. 6. This is the only excur
sion t-ain that will run direct from Ne
vada to Chicago, and it will be largely
patronized by the citizens of that state
who desire to help celebrate their natal
day iu Chicago on Sept. 11.
A WISCONSIN FARMER'S CRIME.

children about 10 o'clock. S iturday night,
and then made an unsuccessful attempt to
'take his own life. The awful deed waa
not discovered until Sunday afternoon at 5
o'clock, and the news reached here tardily.
At the f,.ijuest Nohetnacher made a full
confession, fie said the crops were poor,
anil he was afraid of starving. ls wife's
parents w.-fc in Queliec, where they had
come all tHe' way from Germany, and
wanted niorey," and he had none to send.
He had intended to kill his family Fri
day night, but he changed his plan to Sat
urday night. After the family was asleep
he went out Rnd got an ax and returned
to do the deed. He said he killed his wife
first by three swinging biows on the left
temple. He then went into the next room
and killed Joseph, (1 years, and Wille, 4
years old. He struck both boys on the
head twice. Returning to the loom where
his wife lay be picked up his year old

He then went to the barn, climbed on
the roof and jumped twenty feet to the
floor of the pig stye, sustaining injuries
to the spine and paralyzing his lower ex
tremities. A visit to the scene of the mur
der disclosed a horrible sight. The moth
er lay on her lett side with a (rap
ing wound in the temple. The baby
was in tne cradle beside the bed m a sleep
ing posture. The boys were in the bed in
the next room in a pool of blood. The
father, as he lay on the floor of the kitch

least sign of sorrow or regret, talked as
calmly about the murder as iio would
about killing a pig. Nonemacber cannot
Tramps Grap the Situation.
TorEKA, Kas., Aug. 1. The stream of
idle workmen from Colorado continues to
pour through Kansas. Reports recei.ed
here by the police department state that a
great many depredations have been com
mitteA iu the towns all along the line of
the Santa Fe and Union Pacific railroads.
Houses have been broken into and valu
ables stolen both in the towns and
country. Reports to the police authori
ties state that tramps and burglars all
along these lines of roads have taken ad
vantage of this movement.
Navohoe Beaten in England.
London, Aug 1. In the races off Cowes
the Navahoe the American yacht which
came over here to challenge for the Bren
ton Reef and oher cups won by the Genea
ta when in American waters, was beaten
by both the Britannia and Valkyrie, the
Britannia leading tba Navahoe by 1 min
ute and 36 seconds. It is probable that
when the Navahoe is measured she will
have to allow time.
