Exceptional Exhibit of the Fall Queen
Other Blossoms and Fruit.
In a riot of brilliant color and In an r.tmosnhere
of delicate perfume the seventy-third annual fair
of the American Institute opened yesterday after
noon in the Herald i tare Exhibition Hall, Broad-
Tray. Thirty-fourth and Thirty-fifth sts. Experts
in the- flower line say that the showing of chrys
anthemums at this fair is the finest In the world,
and it would be difficult to Imagine a collection
comprising more color or varieties of the splendid
queen of autumn flower*. Bunches of cut chrys
anthemums, each as largre as a dinner plate, nod
in their high stands at their neighbors that still
cling: to the parent bush. TlKht yellow flowers,
feathery white ones, curling Pinks tnd straight
petaJled reds, blooming by the hundreds on bush
and tree, vie with one another in the contest for su
In the mi.lst of all this eplpndor of color there
are two plants which never fail to win admiration
for their daintiness. They are covered with masses
ofxfltarry flowers, rr>-at yellow centres, with white
petals like field daisies.
Another Interesting bush shows the original
chrysanthemums— yellow Sowers, not so large as a
ten-cent piere in dlameten
The "freak" of the fair is a tree which Is bloom
ing with twenty-four different varieties of chrysan
thenxtnns. IWb is advertised as "a pardonable
specie? of graft from Chicago."
Besides the chrysanthemums ere Is a large col
led • of orchids -r.d of ros.-s and carnations at
their best, while palms, ferns and other preens are
banked effectively In the hall.
Among v.'- exhibitors in this department are H.

The showing of vegetables and fruits would make
a gardener's eyes grow as large as saucer* when
he nad made sure that he was not Icing through
a magnifying fsl^s*. Radishes, that could easily
be taktn for huge parsnips, cucumber? that ■■■ i:
like watermelons and pumpkins that are as large

Connecticut "Fed" Peaceably Elects
Officers and Changes Constitution.
TUT telegraph to THE tribcne-1
D anbury. Conn.. Nov. 10.— The r««Urn of peace In
the Connecticut State Federation of Women's Clubs
■was uninterrupted by the amendment of the con
stitution and election of officers, which took place
this afternoon. Both vot»>e were absolutely unani
mous, and, whereas the tellers at the convention of
the New- York State Federation had to sit up till 3
o'clock In the morning-. counting- the ballots which
the delegates took all day to deposit, the balloting
In th« Connecticut federation was all oveT In fifteen
minutes. It resulted In the election without a single
dissenting voice, of the following; officers: Presi
dent. Mrs. Charles H. Briscoe. of Er.fie'd; first vice
president. Miss Mary M. Abbott, of Watertowß;
second vice-president. Mrs. Kdward H. Smiley, of
Hartford; recording secretary. Mrs. J. R. Mason,
of Derby; corresponding secretary. Miss Bertha A.
Wletine;, of Enneld: treasurer. Mr«. W. A. Arnold,
of \V<lllmantlc; auditor. Mrs. Jay H. Hart, of
Waterbury ; federation Secretary, Miss Dotha Stone
Plnneo. of Norwalk, and directors. .Mrs. G. F. New
comb, of New-Haven; Mrs. R. H. Netde. of N«w-
Canaan; Mrs. W. F. Brooks, of New-Britain: Mrs.
ll!is Austin, of Norwich; Mrs. H. D. Curtlss. of
Woodbu-y; Mrs. J. E. Wilson, of Bridgeport, and
Mrs. M. E. Medbury. o? Bothe!.
The tlm« not spent In dissension was devoted, In
true New-England fashion, to a feast of reason and
a Cow of bboL Business being completed early in
the afternoon rhe rest of the tim» was filled by
the literature committee with papers on the women
writers of New-England, recent We.-tern poetry,
and the French habitant in literature, with illus
trations by Miss Elena Foster, monoioglst.
Previous to this, however, the retiring president.
Miss Mary Merriman Abbott, made her annual ad
dress, and was presented with a beautiful Bold
watch, medallion and pin. Miss Abbott lost her
gold watch about a year ago, while on federation
business, and this recognition of her services natu
rally took the form of a timepiece to replace the one
lost. The watch is supported by a pin of iridescent
gold. In the shape of two wings, edged with pearls,
a small ruby In th centre giving the federation
color, dark red. Connecting the watch and the
pi." }s a medallion, showing the arms and motto ot
Connecticut on a ground yf white enamel. This
medallion was the pi ft of one woman, not on the
board, and may be worn separate The presenta
tion was made by Mrs. Brlscoe immediately after
receiving: the gavel from Miss Abbott's hand.
In her annual address Miss Abbott spoke of the
domesticity of the Connecticut clubwoman, and ad
duced as positive proof of the same that the only
delegates she could g«t for the St. Louis biennial
were herself and "another old maid." The reason,
she observed, was obvious. The married women
wanted 10 visit the fair in the company of their
nustiands and children, who were going later and
were unwilling consequently to go in May --just for
And. speaking of the biennial, MI-s Abbott also
referred with pride to the fact that the General
federation had adopted the educational poiiey of
Connecticut. This looks to the formation of a na
tional woman's council of education, similar to the
Ol tf. now existing in Connecticut, the object of
which council will be the unification of the edu
cational systems of the different States and the
appointment of a federal minister of education.
• Florence K>n.-y said," observed Miss Abbott.
that this was the one bit of constructive work
done at the federation, and I think the other States
are a little jealous of us They say. 'Little Con
necticut came and got what she asked for, while
much larger States couldn't get anything. "
The morning was devoted to reports of standing
committees, which showed in the aggregate a
large amount of work accomplished. Mrs. F. W.
Gerard, of the committee on forestry, said that
Norwalk and South Norwalk had waged such ef
fective war on the elm tree beetle that the work
had attracted favorable notice from the State
"The work of the committee consists chiefly in
diffusing information." said Mrs. Gerard, "and
one of the Questions I am oftenest called upon to
answer is. 'How shall we get a tree warden 7*
That Is the easiest thing In the world. First, you
select your man"
"Or woman." suggested some one from the floor.
'There are such things as wise men." paid Mrs.
Gerard, severely. "First, you select a wise man.
Then you get another wise man to nominate him
In the caucus. That is all that is necessary. He
Is sure to go In becauje the office isn't sought after
by politicians."
In presenting the report of the civics committee.
Mrs. George Franklin Newcomb, of Haven.
told how one club had rescued from weeds and
wilderness several plots at the junction of roads,
and had thereby roused sympathetic action In
nearby yards and streets, until the wilderness had
blossomed as the rose.
"Still other clubs," she proceeded, "have seen
with sadness the neglected and bramble over
grown old cemeteries. The toppling headstones
have beer. s»t in place, the walks cleaned, the
stone walls around the grounds have been repaired,
and. In one instance, at least, the town authorities
were so moved by the club's care and energy that
j: 800 was voted for cemetery improvements. In
other towns the tattered and demoralizing bill
boards have been looked after, and when their
purpose has been accomplished they are no longer
left to the mercy of the wind and rain. Tree war
dens have been appointed, and attention has been
called to the condition of the streets and roads.
In several school? the stamp saving card system
has been introduced and habits of thrift encour
aged. The jl.j 1 . av:iilt- court bill is now a law in
Connecticut, and many clubs are giving time an.!

A fourth will soon be placed in the Greenwich

Mrs. Perry, chairman of the transportation com
mittee, said that the citizens of Boston, where she
T.as recently made a visit, seem, to possess a sixth
sense— sense of civio pride. There one may
enter a trolley car without being told to "Step
lively." arid one may take a. cab without having to
listen to profanity or demurs. The work which is
constantly gcir.s or; to make Boston a city beauti
ful car.not be laid directly to the women of the
city, she said, but it is aided by women's enthu
siasm and persistency. Mrs. Percy wished to pro
test against the blockhouse of the subway at
k<?venty-gecorsd-et., "every stone of which," she
declared, "Is a monument to ignorance." The pro
test was not taken up by the league.

A maiden stood where the fields were Elpe,
And gathered the golden wheat; •
Gayly she sang as she bound her sheaves.
And laid them about her feet.
One marked her there as she passed her by.
Alone with her hard-earned spoil.
And spoke of rest, for the sun was high,
And the reaper spent with toll.
But the maiden smiled, as her glad voice said:
"Nay, lady. I may not yield.
The work la great, but the work is sweet,
1 toll In my father's tleld."
Gleaners of Christ, In your lonely toll.
When weary and fain to yield. .
Take comfort here, though the work is great,
"Ye toil in your Father's field."
And the Fathers house lies over the hill.
Where the sun of life zoes down;
There shall ye rest, and the Father's smile
Forever your work shall crown.

General Committee of Methodist Church
Makes Appropriations.
Boston. Nov. 10.-The general missionary com
mittee of the Methodist Episcopal Church, after
considerable discussion, to-day voted unanimously
to appropriate $::>■•>•• fo. missionary work in the
coming year, and that this be so divided as to g:ve
t-.r ' '->" tor work In the foreign fleld and VtUM for
domestic w..rk. Tr.e question of the apportionment
of the monry for foreign missions among the van
oua countries was deferred until to-morrow.
An Interesting programme was given at the en
tertainment yesterday afternoon by the Actors'
Church Alliance, in the 'liege Hall of the Hotel
Astor, and many and enthusiastic were the en
comiums be-towod upon Mrs. Beasts Taylor Ben
nlngton. chairman of the fciiterUiinment committee,
and her corps of able assistants for their excellent
work and its gratifying results.
The Rev. Thomas R Slicer. in the opening ad
dress, outlined briefly but dearly the alms and ob
jects of the alliance, which, he said, stood above all
things else for church unity. Up to the time of the
organization of the society the church had been
united mainly upon one point— namely. its opposi
tion to the stage— but It had since discovered that
it lacked on« important quality which the stage
possessed. Interest, and Its ministers were now
learning from the dramatic profession to make
their sermons Interesting. In the union Of church
and stage there was much to be gained, and noth
ing to be lost, on both sides. Dr. Slicer concluded
by advocating a more universal adherence to the
gospel of sunshine, observing that the only thing
In life worth multiplying la Its Joy. „
The programme Included a planoforlj solo by
Miss Grace Ksterbrook Alasworth. selections
by the Vlardot Quartat, a reading by Frederick S.
Abbott, a vocal solo by Miss Maud Lambert, a
violin solo by Mss Agnes Chxistemsen and an illus
trated lecture on "The Island of Jersey" by Mm*.
Ahler-Chesiey. The musical numbers were enthusi

General di Cesnola Says It Refuses
to Fulfil Agreement.
Central di Cesnola, director of the Metropoli
tan Museum of Art. is greatly pleased at evi
dence of public Interest In the condition of the
exterior of the Museum building ha Central Park.
He indorses the plan of Profesor R. Ogden Do
remus to coat the walls of the Museum with
parafflne wax. as the obelisk was coated a num
ber of years ago, and as Grants Tomb has
recently b«en treated.
General dl Ccsr.oia yesterday showed a copy
of the lease by which the etty gave the Museum
the custody of the building. He pointed out
a clause which provides that the city shall be
'Coryrlsrht by J * R. lAmbi)
in no manner chargeable for th» preservation,
of the building or contents against fire, bat it
i 3 agreed that, these damages exempted, the city
will keep the building In repair.
Expenditures made from the Museum funds
for repairs to the building amounted to $l«o,ftf>o
last y»ar. The directors ha.% - decided to de
rote no more money to this object, and -.y the
Park Department most in the future include
in Its annual estimate a sum sufficient tn k-~;>
.the Museum i>uiidir.g in proper repair, or be
come responsible for its gradual decay.
'"Since 1878 I have been trying to get the
city to full its obligations in regard to this
building." said Genera] di .-.-..- "It is plain
ly written in th- lease that the city shall kr-f-p
the building in repair. Our appeals to the Park
Commissioner?, whether Republican or Demo
cratic, have been the same. The stereotyped
reply has been and is: 'We have no money for
that purpose.' From time to time, in The face of
absolute necessity, the directors have voted mon
