Listening to Tourists
in the National Museum
OF all the public building* in
Washington which are frequent
ed by the general public and by
tourists, the National Museum
probably ranks next to the Cap
itol ?nd the Congressional Library in the
number of daily visitors.
The doorkeeper at the museum, when
questioned as to the average attendance,
placed the number at between 1,500 and
2.000 people dally.
Of course, the exposition at Jamestown
during the past summer partially ac
counts for the unusual number of visitors
who have come to Washington during
the summer. Every one who comes with
in reaching distance of Washington
makes It a point to visit the city before
returning to his home. Indeed, quite
a number have expressed regret at not
having come to Washington before going
:o Jamestown, asserting that there is
more of Interest to be seen here than in
the exposition city.
Be that as It may, a visit to the museum
will convince any one as to its popularity.
All day long, between the hours of 9 in
the morning and 4 in the afternoon, the
people come and go, singly and in groups
of two or three or more, or in delegations
of anywhere from fifteen to fifty. Every
class and every age is represented, from
the child of three or four, who is lifted
in his father's arms that he may be able
to tell in after years that he has looked
upon the Identical articles worn or used
py Washington or some other noted man.
to the gray-haired grandmother ,tvho has
b-?en given this trip as a treat by the
"children." * ,
Stand at some convenient spot anc^
watch the people as they stop beside the
cases. A sweet-faced old lady is attracted
to the old-fashioned garments, which re
mind her of the time?alas, so long ago?
when she wore a bonnet just like the one
in the case before her, with just such a
wreath of roses adorning Its brim. Among
her treasures of bygone days Is just such
another pair of earrings and a sandal
wood fan carefully wrapped in silver pa
per. Her eyes grow moist and her face
takes on a more tender expression as she
thinks of some Incident of her girlhood
?lays which these things recall, days be
fore she was married to '"John." She
wonders If John were here would he re
member her as she looked the day she
wore the new bonnet for the first time.
Everybody said it was so becoming, and
she was a pretty girl, and the recollection
brings a flush of pride and pleasure to
her withered cheek. John is not here.
Another and a younger Tnan calling
"Mother, come and see this," wakes her
from her daydream.
*
* *
Another old lady?this time a "young'
old lady, if there be such a one?ap
proached the case and called her compan
ion's attention to the "real filet lace"
with which one of the garments was
trimmed. She could hardly tear herself
away from the display of lovely and cost
ly "creations" of the needlewoman's art.
I "I had just such things as these at one
time," she said, "but I did not value them I
particularly. I gave them away or let I
them get lost or ruined. Who ever would
have thought that those old things would
he considered of such Importance now? I
wish I had kept them." A shade of re
great darkened her countenance as she
turned away. ?
Sit down behind the Myers-Mason col
lection and watch the group approaching
?a middle-aged gentleman accompanied
?>y two girls, evidently his nieces. "Oh,
Tncle Frank, look here," the taller one
xclalmed. "See these topaz earrings.
Don't they look Just like the ones grand
na left to Aunt Molly? I'd almost think
hey were the very ones If I didn't know
lifferent. Don't you remember there was
a necklace and a pair of earrings brought
to grandma when she lived In North^Car
ollna? When grandma died Aunt Molly
rot the earrings and mother the necklact
lother had one of the stones set in a
ring for me. I've got it on this minute."
?4he removed her glove, and sure enough
>n her finger was a beautiful topaz ring,
rhe girls hovered about the casA examin
ng first one thing and then another and
noting points of resemblance, to heirlooms
'.n their own family. When at last they
went away they were still talking about
| "grandma's'' things.
*
* *
The next, to pass that way was a very
lisdainful lady, who looked about her
<vlth a supercilious air of depreciation of
verythlng she saw. The first thing she
le'gned to notico was the hat worn by
."apt. Allyn. "Look at that hat," she
aid to her companion. "They must bt>
unny people to send a hat like that to
e shown as a curiosity in a place Ilk*
his. Why, Teddy Roosevelt wore a ha
ike that one in the Spanish war. That's
j lot old?that's common as can be. I
ion't see anything wonderful in that."
.?
* ?
Then came the inevitable bride and
rroom. She was a gay little personage
?right and lively, evidently well aware of
ler privilege as a bride to be as willfully
xaetlng and as capricious as she pleased,
well knowing that whatever she did was
sure to find favor in the eyes of the big
-nan person who followed her about striv
ng vainly to conceal his too evident pride
n his new possession under an assumed
nask of exaggerated dignity of manner
n vain did he call her attention to the
elics of the Maine or to the big guns,
vhose mechanism he strove to exp'ain.
Bessie" would have none of them. Dl
ctly she caught sight of the Myers
Tason case she gave a delighted cry
"Oh, look at that exquisite fan."
"But, Bessie, this gun which I am show
ing you "
"Oh. Will," she interrupted, "do look at
his comb. Do you suppose any one ev r
-rally wore a comb like that? What would
he folks down in Missouri say if I should
o home wearing a comb like that?" And
:he gave a suppressed little giggle at the
lea.
"Oh. Will, look at this lovely jewelry,

things?" And so she went on through
.he whole list.
Will by this time had abandoned his
guns, so to speak, and surrendered un
conditionally, following his little wife
around and trying to look wise as she
pointed out ona article of wearing ap
parel after another to his unfamiliar gaze.
When next seen they were In the de
partment of ethnology, and Will was try
ing to tell "Bessie" that he had seen sav
ages exactly like those In the cases, with
perhaps the addition of a bracelet or a;
nosering, which was considered full dress
in Africa. But Bessie did not stop to
listen, though her husband was evidently
a cultivated gentleman who had traveled
extensively. Shtb flitted from one thing
to another as lightly as a bird and ah
daintily, hovering over the big sapphire
quartz for a moment, and then on to the
specimens of the precious metals and so
on through alWthe rooms.

* *
Strange sights are considered very fun
ny by some people. Three ladles attracted
attention by their laughter as tbey con
templated the lovely Chinese lady, with
that arch and simpering expression upon
her face, as she stands with one hand
partially extended, as if she had but Just
lowered the ample folds of her sleeve and
permitted the full splendor of her beauty
to be revealed. Its softening effects are
no% yet visible on the face of the Chi
nese gentleman confronting her. The
ladies were so overcome by the sight of
these two representatives of oriental
splendor that they became almost hys
terica!, and were obliged to leave the
room before they could gain self-control
sufficient to suppress their laughter.
By the nearby mummy case stood a
couple who were plainly from a region
remote from the centers of wealth and
culture. The man might have been a
preacher in some inland country district.
His one venture out in the great world
had probably been a trip to the holy land
He had seen mummies before and knew
all about them. Had seen one partially
"undressed," as he told his wife, explain
ing to her that the mummy case <fcor
responded to our coffin, and showing her
where the mummy had "been dug into,'*
as he expressed it. to ascertain If ^t was
genuine. Think what a fund of knowledge
he was gathering to carry back to his
wondering congregation.
*
* *
Strangers address remarks to each other
as they stand before cases containing the
familiar forms of bright-hued birds and
butterflies. The pheasants in the case
near the entrance attract a great deal of
attention, especially from the ladies, some
of whom look with envious eye upon the
magnificent plumage of the birds. One
woman remarked: "Wciuldn't those-feath
ers look gorgeous on a winter hat?"
But another woman bravely expressed
her sentiments by an emphatic assertion
ihat she would never wear as an orna
ment any part of a bird,N not even a
"eather,* much less a wing or a breast or
.1 head, however beautiful or well mount
ed it might be.
V *

In the room where are located the jars
containing the devil fish and similar mon
sters a party of three, a man and two
vomen, wandered about. They were from
the country, and they didn't care who
knew it. They were thoroughly enjoying
the novelty of their surroundings. They
paused before the jars containing tne
curious looking objects.
"What are these?" asked one of the
women.
"Them," said the man. looking his con
empt for feminine ignorance, "why.
them's insects."
"Well." said she, "I'd hate to have one
of them get after me!"
"Come here. Mary," called the man In
an exulting tone of voice a little later.
"See If you know what this is," pointing
to a cone-shaped bundle of grayish fiber.
"That," said Mary, "that's nothing but
a wasp's nest. I can see plenty of them
at home."
"Of course you can." said the man. evi
dently delighted to find so familiar and
l omelike an object in such unfamiliar
urroundlngs. They passed on. eager as
children out for a holiday.
Upstairs a party of Ohio people discov
ered the stone hatchets found near the
Ohio river In their own state. They
swelled with pride. Here was conclusive
evidence that their own state could boast

of any state in the Union.
