Already the service building stands complete and work on the machinery building, the largest single structure, has been begun. The women of America will share in the exposition to no small extent in direct activity. Two fountains designed by women already are announced. The designers are Mrs. Harry Payne Whitney and Mrs. Kdith Woodman Burroughs. UAINli XliixCiS lilJCi Young Criminals Now Regard Cognomens as a Necessity.

Millions of people are still living whose eyes have witnessed the flight of the myriad hosts of passenger pigeons, and yet only one of all the vast numbers of those pigeons is known to survive? and that one occupies a place of honor in the Cincinnati Zoo. When he dies it is probable his body will be presented to the nation, to be preserved in alcohol at the National Museum. In these days it is hard for the younger people to believe tlie story of the passenger pigeon, so incredible were their numbers, so remarkable were their flights and so strange were their nestings. And the story of tiie brutality that marked the work of the pot hunters who followed them as a tiger stalks ids prey, relentlessly pursuing them, using the telegraph to keep in touch with their flights and their nestings, is a story of revolting cruelty and butchery. The world is indebted to John James | Audubon, the great naturalist, for what is perhaps the best account of the passenger pigeon ever written. And his truthfulness and scientific accuracy made it a story to be accepted at its face value. He relates that in the autumn of iHl.'i he left his house at Henderson, on the banks of the Ohio, to go to Louisville. * * In passing over tlie Barrens, a few miles front Hardensburg, he observed pigeons llyCame Like a Torrent, in? fr?m , the northWith Roar of Thunder. east tu lhe sou tit west in greater numbers than he. had ever seen before. After they had been passing for about an hour lie dismounted, seated himself on an eminence and made a dot with a pencil for every Hock that pussea. in a snun. mi?c ? *= j found that ho was putting down dots at i the rate of 163 In twenty-one minutes. He resumed his journey and still the pigeons came; the light of day was darkened as if by a solar eclipse. IJke a torrent, and with the roar of distant thunder, they gathered in a solid mass, darting forward with the wings of the wind in undulating and angular lines, descending and sweeping close to the earth, then mounting perpendicularly so as to resemble a vast column, and when high in the air once more, wheeling and twisting within their continued lines, which then resembled the coils of a gigantic serpent. For hity-flve miles Audubon traveled on to Louisville, with the serried columns of | pigeons still floating over his head, and for three days the flight continued. Bach flock did exactly as the one ahead had done; If the one ahead darted down when passing over a brook or dodging a hawk the flock behind did the same. Audubon attempted to estimate the number of pigeons in that great flight. lie assumed that the column averaged a mile in width, which was far below the average in point of fact. Then he assumed that the birds flew at the rate of sixty miles an hour, also a conservative assumption. Upon this basis the pigeons passing in three hours wotild form a streak 180 square i miles in area, and, counting two pigeons ! to the square yard, there would he nearly | a billion and a quarter pigeons in such a flight. How many there must have been In the three days' flight he did not undertake to say. Audubon's observations were that each pigeon eats fully half a pint of food a day. Tlie pigeons in a threehour flight would thus need nearly nine million bushels of food a day. * * * Audubon made several pilgrimages to a famous roosting place on the banks of the Made Several Pilgrimages ? r e e n to Famous Boosting Place. tucky. He rode through the forest for upward of forty miles, and by crossing and recrosslng it reached the conclusion that the roost was of an average breadth of three mileB. His first view of it was about two weeks after the pigeons had established it as a roosting place. He arrived about two hours before sunset I7V.U7 nlmnnn tvoro tr> ho aoen hilt thero ' " I were great numbers of people, who, with horses and wagons, children and dogs, guns and ammunition, had established camps on the borders of the forest. Two farmers had driven more than three hundred hogs over a hundred miles to fatten them on pigeons that were to be slaughtered. Here and there were people engaged in plucking and salting the catch ; of the day before. Many trees two feet in diameter had been broken off by the sheer weight of the multitudes of roosting birds. Everywhere great branches of forest monarchs were broken off, and the aspect of the thousands of acres of woodland was such as one might expect to be the result of a fierce tornado. Some of the people who were camping there had great pots of sulphur. Others had poles, and others guns. It was after sundown that the cry went up that the returning hordes were approaching. The noise they made reminded Audubon of a gale at ^ea passing through the rigging of a close-reefed vessel. As they passed over his head he felt a current of air that astonished him. Thousands of birds were knocked down by the polemen. but tens of thousands and even millions continued to pour in. They alighted everywhere, one above another, until masses as large as hogsheads were formed on tlie brandies all around. * * * Here and there perches gave way under the weight with a crash, killing hundreds of birds Hundreds of Birds Killed as tllcy When the Branches Break. tldng was uproar and confusion. The people could not hear themselves talking to one another, ami even the reports of shotguns and blunderbusses could not be 1 heard above the great noise. Audubon t a man out from the forest to see w far the noise could be heard, and it . is plainly audible three miles distant, i". midnight the stream of arrivals began to fall off, hut before the break of day the advance guard began to move out U'l.ilft in, dared ne in the ?*?) *! >. ? ? w woods while the pigeons wore In the trees, they were able to kill ami eripple enough of theni to keep all the people busily employed next day, with enough left over to give the htm hogs, the wolves, the foxes, the lynxes, the cougars, bears, raccoons, possums, polecats, eagles and hawks a mor>- than satisfactory breakfast. and at the same time to sa\e enough back for the vultures that came to supplant the animals and the birds of prey. James Fenltnore Cooper also saw the flights of the passenger pigeons, and lie said thai, in a single flight he had seen enough birds to provision Xerxes' army for a month and enough feathers to provide a downy couch for every person in the country. The white man and his net are responsible for the disappearance of the passenger pigeon from the face of the earth. They began their forays about 1H4<i. The profession of plgeoner came into existence ami these men banded themselves together to exploit the pigeon. * * * By the telegraph they were able to keep in close touch with the movements of the Used Telegraph to Keep pigeons. \I7itb and no 44* A V UUiA VViVU ilAVVVliiVliti). . pigeon roost could be established for many days before the pigeoners were on hund to get in their deadly work. They carried with them trained stool pigeons by which they were enabled to rail down great flocks of passing birds and net as many GERPIGEON. J. Haskin. as tlicv possibly could park in ire and ship. In the last great "roosting" in Michigan in 1S7N more than ">00 tons of tlie dressed birds were shipped out. Tens of thousands of them were caught alive and sold to sporting clubs for trap shooting purposes. o ncn some pigeoner nappeneu 10 mscover that during the nesting season the birds were frantic In their efforts to ohtain salty mud and water he found a bonanza for his ilk. Great mud beds along streams were covered with salt and nets were set above these. Hundreds of thousands of parent birds would come for their salt and water, the traps would he sprung, and often a single net would catch more than a thousand birds. The pigeoners carried blacksmith pincers, and a pinch for each captive neck, and then a struggle, and then some starving squabs, was the tragedy of their bloody work. Chief Pokagon. the last of the Pottav.attomio chieftains of the Pokagon band of Indians, says lie saw the pigeoners in Penzie county. Mich., apply the match to the mosslike dried bark of the white birch, which burns like paper soaked in oil, so that the flame would reach ttie nests of the pigeons and force the squabs to jump out. In thousands of instances the squabs were singed alive and the parent birds themselves had their plumage burned badly?some so badly that they could no longer fly. * * * The pigeon butchers of yesterday were ready with their defense when needed.

In their own eyes they -were an ill-used lot. Did not some one tell a story of poisoning birds with poison berrier. and cause the price to drop 50 cents a dozen in a single day in New York, and to IX) cents a dozen in Chicago? Wasn't killing pigeons with pincers as humane as shooting quail on the wing? The stories of great slaughttr were, to their minds, gross exaggerations. It has been claimed that there were flights of passenger pigeons along the Hudson in ItMi. and John Burroughs investigated the report and believed It true. A number of persons have claimed to have small flocks of the pigeons. In 19<K? <_*. O. Whitman of the University of Chicago, reported to W. B. Mershon, author of "The Passenger Pigeon," that he had two female birds and two sterile hybrid males. But the passenger pigeon is gone from the earth forever. iDike the great auk and the buffalo it has been unable to adjust Itself to the age of the white man In America. HOSPITAL FORCE PUZZLED OVER CHILD'S IDENTITY Philadelphia Parents Refuse to Accept Three-Year-Old Girl as Their Own. PHILADELPHIA. February 21.?The .authorities at the Municipal Hospital for Contagious Diseases are trying to learn the identity of the three-year-old girl they supposed was Beatrice Kaufman, and at the same time discover what has become of the real Beatrice, who was admitted to the institution six weeks ago suffering from scarlet fever. Beatrice's father. Isadere Kaufman, received reports from the hospital every- day telling him the little girl was recovering. Yesterday he was notified to come and take her home. Hastening to the institution, Kaufman was surprised when a child whom he did not recognize was turned over to him. "That is not my Beatrice." he exclaimed. "Oh, yes it is. She has changed in appearance because of her illness," declared the hospital attendants. Unconvinced, but hoping that he was mictolii: k'oiifman took the rhlld to his home so that his wife might decide. Mrs. Kaufman also declared that the child was not Iter Beatrice, and the little giri, failing to note any familar surroundings, hurst into loud sobs for "mamma." She was taken back to the hospital last night, but the real Beatrice could not be located. CUT OUT CLASS RUSH. Freshmen and Sophs at Yale Reach an Agreement. XBW HAVEN, Conn., February 21.? After six weeks' agitation over details for the annual Washington's birthday "rush" between the Yale freshmen and sophomores, the two classes have decided to abandon it this year. The "rush" has been a regular feature of Y'ale life, and its omission this season will be the first time in many decades. For several years the faculty has been making more and more rigorous rules regarding the struggle, with the result that the students declared there was no long! er any "red nlood" in it. QUAKERS WEO IN GOTHAM FIRST TIME IN 17 YEARS One Woman Appears in Sober Garb of Sect?Only Orthodox Friends Church in City. NEW YORK, February 21.?For the first time in seventeen years there was a wedding last night in the little Quaker meeting house in Gramercy Park, over which quaint edillce fashionable apartment houses now tower. It is the home of the only congregation of Orthodox Friends in New York. It had been so long since the :k>> members of the congregation saw a wedding that practically all of them came from far and near tq see the marriage of Benjamin Hervey IJoane, a clerk in tiie appellate division of the supreme court, and Miss Alice Howes I'nderhill. With no minister and with no music, the couple"marched up the aisle of the church and standing before the meeting I they clasped hands and repeated the aim! pie marriage vows to be loving and dutiful with God's aid. They signed a certificate testifying to the fact that they had laid their intentions of marriage before two previous meetings of the congregation without having heard objection to them. Fifty years ago, when the little meeting house was new, all of the front rows were usually tilled with women in the Quaker dress, but last night only one woman appeared in that softer garb.
