Chicago, Aug. 10. Director General
Davis has spoken on the subject of hold
ing the fair open next summer, and be is
decidedly against it says the idea Is not
to be entertained. So thoso who want to
see the greatest exhibition of human en
terprise and achievement ever held or
ever likely to be held, probably will
have to do it this year or not at all. The
director general gays with reference to
the suggestion that the Art gallery, th.

Fisheries and the Horticultural buildings
might be retained with their contents
that the contents of the Art building will
lie removed promptly on the 1st of No
vember; tht the tiinks in the Fisheries
building would inevitably freeze; that the
expense of maintaining the Horticultural
building throughout a winter se.ison
would he enormous, and that much of the
exhibit there will be remi veil. Neither
exhibitors, nor c'.nci-s!;t.!;aircs. nor di

ONE OF UNCLE SAM'S EXHIBITS.
ebowiug the Way the Census Is Tabulated
There is an interesting exhibit in the
government uaildine; ortne way tne cen-!
sus is compiled in the office at Washing-
ton. The visitor who wants a census card I
Is asked the usual census questions by the
young woman in charge of the machine.
"No soldierf is the first question put.
Then followed: "Malef Whiter Age?
Married or si -.gle? What state do you re
side in? Speak English? Read and write?
What profession? Where born?" As
each auawer is recorded a hole Is punched
out ot a card neia oy a groove in irons oj
When the questions were answered the
card was withdrawn and presented a plain,
unlettered surface dotted with with round
oles at irregular distances. 13y placing
the card upon another covered with letters
ana figures a significance was given to
each hole by the appearance of a letter un
der it. One revealed the letters O K, sig
nifying that the man whose record the
card contained had answered "Yes" to the
question "Read and write?" Sg signified
that the holder was single, M that he wal
a male, and W that he was white.
"Now take your card to the other ma
chine," said the young lady, pointing to
one which consisted apparently of a series
cf dials arranged in a double row. The
card with the holes was slipped Into the
aperature and a handle pressed. Simul
taneously as many of the dials clicked as
there were holes in the card, the hand on
the face of each adding one to a number
already recorded. In this very simple
and expedious way the returns of the
The praotical exhibit thus arranged by
the census office is naturally the center of
a great deal of attention in the govern
ment building. People who have bad
their records stamped out on cards carry
their friends to the spot and insist that
they have the same. Then, where mutual
affection exists, comes an interchange of
cards and a pleasant memento of the visit
to the fair or a friendship that once ex
isted. The resignation of Theod re Thomas, as
mnsical director of the fair, which was
tendered the board of directors a few days
ago, has been accepted. It is said that the
big exposition orchestra will also go and
that other musical arrangements will be
made by the fair oflieers.

CRACK BEATEN FROM THE SCRATCH.
Zimmerman's Colors Lowered
A t the
( hiengo Tournament.
Ciih ai;o, Aug. 10. For the first time
during th;r L. A. W. meet Zimmerman
was beaten from the scratch. John S.
Johnson, the Minneapolis wonder, assisted
by TuttleJ Githens and Kisely, accom
plished his defeat in the fire-mile natrrnTTft. 4
ccatr.piouship by crossing the tape an open
length ahead of the great New Yorker.
Tbe Chicago riders set a fast pace for
Zimmerman for four miles, and a bunch
of wheels kept the champion sprintingun
til the upper turn was reached the last
time. There Zimmerman pulled away
for his filial spurt with Johnson after him.
The great distance and the manner in
which the pace-makers forced him out
made his final effort, usually invincible,
comparatively weak, and Johnson passed
him with ease.
Previous to this Zimmerman had won
threa races the quarter mile national
championship in 0:31 2-5: the one mile, or
dinary national champions'up in 3:10, and
the third-mile, scratch, in 0:44 2-5. He did
not start in the handicaps. The five mile
race saved the day from being dull, tbe
only brilliant feature being the work of
A. T. Crook, of Buffalo, in the one and
two mile handle ps, both of which he
won. The crowd iu attendance numbered
3,0oi, and the track was fast and the
weather fine. Crooks' mile with an ad
vantage of fifty yards in 2:07 1-5 was an
excelient performance and his two miles
in 4:"3 2 5 iu receipt of ninety yards was
Trie 1-mile novice was won by Becker,
of Chicago, in 2:42 4-5; the 1-mlie 2:40 class
by Kennedy, of Chicago, in 2:29 3-5; the
5-mile national championship, won by
Johnson, was made in 12:40.

Central and Hudson River Railroad com
