Every possible phase of buyers
week seems to have a. committee
'Watching: over it. It would appear
that positively nothing could go
wrong in connection with the big
event, because so far as is humanly
possible every detail will be looked
after by committees. These groups
have been named with a great deal
of care, so that those specially fitted
for work in carrying out certain de
tails will be on the job.
Responsibility for the ' various
vents will be squarely up to these
committees and in every case it is
believed they will not fail to fecquiUi
themselves with credit in putting the
big trade event over. The ambition
of every committee member is to set
a new high standard of success.

NEW YORK, July 19. (Special.)
Three months ago Maud, a 70-pound
orang-outang, was swinging from the
trees in her native Borneo. She ar
rived at the Bronx zoo, the liveliest
animal that ever took up residence
in the house of primates. After a
trip across the continent under the
care of Raymound Lu Ditmars, assist
ant director and curator of reptiles,
during which she caused more trouble
and raised more difficulties than a
carload of wildcats, she crawled back
into her new cage the first night, at
the zoo, pulled a big brown army
blanket over her head and went to
With her came a baby orang. which
would have died in San Francisco of
pneumonia had it not been for the
care and nursing it received at the
hands of Mrs. Ditmars, who sat up in
the Hotel St. Francis night after
night in an effort to keep the animal
Conductor Knocked Sprawling?. j
Maud began to cut up just as soon
as she came in to San Francisco on
the 8kipx Singapore. She was caged
in a specially constructed teak wood
box, the bars of which were set
rather wide apart. Her first exploit,
after boarding the Overland Limited
at San Francisco, was to reach out
a long hairy arm from her place in
the baggage car and send the con
ductor sprawling on his face.
At Ogden, Utah, a newsboy with a
bundle of papers came aboard the
train. He passed Maud in the bag
gage car, and the long arm shot out
like Carpentier's right and scattered
the news of the day the length of
She bad not been placed long in the
baggage car before she discovered
that by grasping the bars with her
hands and feet and shaking herself
vigorously she was able to move the
cage about the car. To one or two
of the baggagemen she took a vio
lent dislike, and whenever they en
tered to attempt any work, Maud
shook in her cage until she came
within range, and then made swift
passes with her right and left. More
than once she floored the baggage
men, and any one else who came
within range of her long arms.
Door Torn Front Cage.
At Chicago the animals were
shipped aboard the Lake Shore limited
Mr. Ditmars was permitted to bring
them east on the fastest passenger
trains by special permission of the
passenger agents, in order that they
might suffer the least- possible bad
effects of their journey and the
train was hardly on its way to New
York before Maud had another burst
of activity. In a fit of fury she tore
the teakwpod door from her cage and
flung It at one of the baggagemen
on the limited.
It was only by the very quickest
work on the part of Mr. Ditmars, who
happened to be in the car with the
animal at the time, that the door was
replaced in time to prevent Maud
from making her escape.
The baby orang-outang was quickly
affected by the low temperature in
San Francisco and caught cold the
day after it was unloaded from the
steamer. It was plain to Mr. Dit
mars that if he were to have any
chance of bringing it to New York he
would have to keep the animal di
rectly under his eye.
After a great deal of difficulty he
succeeded in persuading the manager
of the Hotel St. Francis to permit him
to keep the baby orang in his room.
Baby Smuggled Into Room.
At first the manager was obdurate.
"It's impossible, Mr. Ditmars," he
said. "According to our rule no ani
mal can be kept in the rooms." For
an hour Mr. Ditmars talked, to no
use. The baby orang was then smug
gled up to his room in a brown paper
package and kept there for four days,
when the management became aware
of it. Came another argument, which
Mr. Ditmars succeeded in clinching
by asserting his orang was not an
animal, but half human, according to
the Darwinian theory.
The baby orang stayed on. "It
had to be cared for just as tenderly
as a baby," said Mr. Ditmars. "My
wife held it in her arms and fed it
milk and rice and gave It medicine.
She sat up night after night until it
was able to hold its head up again."
Along with the two orangs Mr. Dit
mars brought two of the largest
