Out at the -Exposition entrance yester
day morning two little children, a boy
and a girl, stood hand In hand at the
parting of the ways. One-was laboriously
clean with, a wldeVhlte collar, palnfully
pollshed shoes, and an oddly assumed air
of unconcerned worldllness; the other de
murely quiet and bubbling with hardly
suppressed excitement. Both had come,
in common with hundreds, perhaps thou
sands, of others, to accept the hospitality
of the Exposition management as mem
bers of the public schools of the City of
Portland. x
On the one hand, the road stretched oft
to the right, on the other to the left,
Mjoth promising much In explorations and
delight The two youthful tourists stood
in silence & moment, deciding, And then
the boy spoke. "Lies' go see the big en
jun," he said, starting towards the Trans
portation building on the right.
The girl held back. "I'd ratber see the
pictures anil the pretty things," she said.
"ICaw," said the other; "we'll see the
enjun ajid ride In the crane up in the
roof." T,he man had Ills say, as used to
be right
Thousands of "Kids."
Yesterday 14,000 tickets were distributed
to the school children of the city, and a
large part of them were used. Neither
wind, nor nun, nor rain, could still the
chatter of the girls or quell the wild
whoops of the boys as they swarmed over
the grounds and through the buildings, In
groups or. accompanied by parents or
older friends. It was the day when the
young were there to enjoy the Fair, and
they did that to the full In their own
original ways. The marvels of the build
ings, the Music of the bands and the
shrill-voiced spielers of the Trail all came
under their critical inspection and criti
cism. They poked sly fingers at the ex
hibits, picked off an occasional grape
which happened to be hanging too far
out In some of the county displays, drank
lemonade through the longest straws, and
in general had the best time ever. Before
the gates were opened in the morning they
had begun to gather, and after the lights
were shining at night they reluctantly,
sadly, took their leave. The grounds yes
terday entertained the most appreciative
gathering perhaps of the whole course"T)f
the Exposition.
At first the sun shone out 4n promise,
and -the grounds were thronged with the
pleasure-seeking youngsters; then the
rain came down In torrents, and the
buildings filled as by magic.
In the Manufactures building two
bedraggled sightseers stood, Just escaped
from the rain, in front of the big yellow
cofiN of butter. The girl looked admir
ingly at the eatable" animal, but the boy
gazed ruefully "at his limp and clinging
collar and short-lived shine. ' "I told
mama it wouldn't do any good to do all
that" he said.
Sympathy for Exposed Beauty.
Down oh tne Trail later Jn the day they,
stood again 1n front of a place alleged
to be representative of the French capl-
tal, and gazed at the obese beauty with
the straight front eyes. "Gee!" said the
boy, "I bet them ladies catch cold and
have tho grip."
In the Auditorium those children who
had grown old In years gathered to pay
tribute to Jefferson, and with them in the
eddy of the crowd came those who had
yet to grow. Some man who was sup
posed to know was telling of the honor
and fame of the father of Democracy.
Jefferson " queried the boy, reflective
ly; "he's the fellow that said 'Millions
for defense,' ain't he?"
"No," was his companion's correction;
"he said 'United we stand.' "
"That ain't right" said the boy. with
superior wlsdomr ""he wrote something.
That man up there just now said he
did. He was the fellow that saw the sun
charmed with the scenic and other at
tractions of the City of Hoses.
At ja. meeting at the Glendora Hotel
tho other evening they formed the
Calkins Newspaper Club, to commem
orate their pleasant visit The mem
bership of the club is in the neighbor
hood of 100, and they hal from differ
ent parts of California. Oregon. "Wash

With the Lewis and Clark Exposition entering on the last week of Its exist
ence. President H. "W. Goode -was able yesterday afternoon to state the final out-i
:ome of the -enterprise from a financial standpoint. He stated that despite the
heavy rains of the past week, which affected the attendance seriously, .the sur
plus when the Fair ends will amount to more than $100,000.
The Inclement weather of the past week cost the Exposltlcn 125,000. Should
tbe final week be attended by equally bad weather It U doubtful If the attend
ance would be ao strongly affected. Many people there are who vrlt! desire to
take a last look at the Exposition and the attendance on tho last day is sure
"to be one of the heaviest of the Fair, probably neavler than on opening day.
But regardless of what may happen, the surplus will reach "bove the
$100,000 mark. That jnuch has been salted away and will not ba touched pendlnc
action of the stockholders. Should a distribution to those wb& Invested In stock
be made, iron 25 to 40 per cent will be paid back on their investments. A
deficit is the . precedent other Expositions have established.
As to the'number of paid admissions, it t known that the 'million mark
has long since been passed. Before tho Fall conservative estimates of Iho prob
able number of raid admissions ranged from 000,000 to J.000,000. The figure
most generally accepted Was 600,0p0 or in that neighborhood.
With any klndyof showing during the- final week the 'total attendance will
reach 2.300,000 Lost night It had pasted 2,345.000. Of this amount between SO
and B5 .per ct-nt ar paid admissions. The total at free admissions represents be
tween 35 and 40 per cent. The total paid admissions are known to have reached
the immediate vicinity of l,500.t)00.

And -so the' identity of the "great President
was established.

great successes Of the Exposition, and
will remain longer in the memory of thou

Pajaro Valley Sends Strawberries.
Portiaritl ' people have this week -been
favored with a taste of choice straw
berries from the Pajaro Valley, Cali
fornia, of which "Watsonville is the prin
cipal center, famed for fruit of both vine
and tree. For the past six weeks this
valley has been represented at -the Ex
position by a special Commissioner, F. J.
Chapman, who has distributed to visitors
about 15 boxes. of apples and 12 chests

of berries, the last-named crop extending
over eight to nine-months.
."Women Thank Mrs. Cartwrlght-

.measure to lhe untiring efforts of Mrs. C

had not only a pioneer, but a lifelong

Duniway since the latter came to Oregon
and deeply appreciates the value of the
latters work in the Northwest, especially

"BIpssom" Carpenter, of Oakland,
Fpund It Easy to Get Money.
SAN FRANCISCO. Oct. 7. (Special.)
Four crimes constitute the known record
of "D. R. Blossom," the youthful bank
forger, who was arrested by Detectives
Gibson and Rlordan, yesterday afternoon,
and whose true name is Ambrose Carpen
ter. The young man comes of good fam
ily, and his first forgery, committed June
2S, which was for 51000. was settled by his
parents, who are well-to-do residents of
Oakland. He 'Was arrested -on that occa
sion, but there was no prosecution, and,
like any other favored prisoners, his pho
tograph was never taken .for" the rogues
'"Blossom" Carpenter seemed- to expe
rience little or no difficulty In getting
money on his forgeries ' from the various
banking Institutions with which he did
business. The matter of identification,
evidently, was completely overlooked, and
it was only necessary for the young crim
inal to present his forged paper, take
his money and go his way.
Carpenter's first forgery was committed
whe he was employed by Mr. Rodgers,'
yhc husband of the woman whose name
he forged. Ho had often gone to the
bank for. his employer, and it was easy
for him to get a check cashed. It was
only by a comparison of signatures that
tbla crime was discovered and the forger
taken Into custody. For a time Carpenter
Tefrained from felonious pen work, but
of late he has taken up the game again,
and. seems to have played no favorites In
the matter of selecting victims.
When he was arraigned In the Police
Court today. Carpenter said he needed no
lawyer, as he Intended to plead guilty.
.Judge Morgan told him to-reserve his plea
for the Superior Court, and set his exam
ination for next Wednesday.
