5,000 to 12,01) people day, at a cost of
twenty-five cents apiece, inspect them,
but tbe great majority of travt lers who
pass through Chicago devote a day or
more to the same purpose. Hundreds of
distinguished foreigners and thousands
of prominent men from the various states
of the Union have availed themselves ot
this privilege, aud it is not exaggeration
to say that all, without exception, have
been most agreeably surprised at the
splendor and magnitude of what they
witnessed, and hove departed very en
thusiastic over the bright prospects ol
the Fair. Several hundred of the return
iog delegates of the late republican na
tional convention at Minneapolis inspect
ed the wonders of Jackson park while il
Chicago. Nearly all of the delegates to
the democratic convention at Chicago
have done the same. The Exposition
authorities have committees to show vis
itors about and explain details to them.
Those who have been ohaiged with
the preparation of the Turkish exhibit
are making very extensive preparations
to have it of superior merit and interest.
They will charter a large ship to trans
port the exhibit. They will bring over
400 native TurkB arrayed in their nation
al costumes. They will reproduce at
Chicago a street in Constantinople with
all ito peculiar ctookeduess and narrow
ness and its interesting bazars and res
taurants. The bazars will he filled with
salable articles of Turkish mauufi.otnre.
The expedition to Chioago will start, from
Constantinople and will call at all Turk
ish ports for reinforcements nud articles
to be placed on exhibition. Adt iuuitpolis
and Pbiluppolis huve caught the fever
and will do quite as much as the capital
to make the Turkish exhibit a success.
The exhibit will include a reproduction
in miniature of the Mosque of St. Sophia.
This has never been reproduced in any
Christian country, and for its reproduc
tion at Chicago special permission of the
Sultan hud to be obtained.
A plan to utilize all the school bouses
in Chicago as dormitories for teachers
visiting the World's Fuir ia being agita
ted. Mrs. Solomon Thatoher, Jr , one of
the lady managers, advnuced the idea,
wuion baa been greatly approved. She
says there are more than 300,000 school
teachers in the oountry, who will prob
ably attend the fair, and that a nominal
fee from a reasonable proportion of them
would pay the expeuses of transforming
every school bouse in Chicago into a
lodging house and keep it in perfect or
der. There are nearly 250 public school
buildings, all of them large structures,
which could be thus utilized. It is be
lieved that the majority of the teachers
of the oountry will spend a portion of
their vacation in viewing the exposition,
ft they ootild be provided with lodgings
as indicated, at a mere nominal expense,
ihey would Burely be greatly ocoorarao
dated. A collective exhibit at the World's
Fair by the various college fraternities
in the United States is well assured.
Much Interest line been manifested at the
one or t wo meetings thus far held iu pro
motion of the project. Dr. Peabody,
chief of the Liberal Arts department of
the Exposition, in which tho fraternity
exhibit will be installed, has commended
the idea. Final arrangumouts for pre
paring the exhibit by the fraternities will
be made, it is announced at a meet hit; to
be held at tbe Grand i'acitiu hotel, Chi
cago, on Thursday, July 7. Every Amer
ican college fraternity desiring to par
ticipate in the proposed exhibit, should
send an accredited delegate to the meet
ing. Lee Fenrii, Rand McNi.lly building,
Chicago, is chairman of the committee
having the matter in charge.
Chief Ives, who is in Europe iu the
interest of the Fine Arts department of
the World's Fair, bus written that the
French aud American ortists in Paris are
all agog with enthusiasm for the Fuir.
The American artists are hard at work,
and their faction of the exhibit will be
unexpectedly large and of the highest
order. Chief Ives hud several conferences
with Commissioner Proust, who is the
chief of the tine arts department
for the French exhibit, and finds the rep
resentutive men of French art circles
active and in earnest to make their dis
play exceptionally fine and surpassing
in extent anything formerly ueenm
plixhed. Not to belong to a Woman's World's
Fair committee is now regarded by titled
and aristocratic. European women us a
positive lack of distinction. Indeed, the
interest in the exposition displayed by
prominent and influential women iu most
of the European countries is truly re
markable. The exhibit of woman's work
is sure to be very comprehensive, and,
it is believed, surprising.
An exhibit of bells will be made at the

A BOY BAROMETER.
All IIHnoIrt Yomurater'H lluir as a Weath
According to a correspondent of tho
Chicago Inter Ocean tin-re is a remark
able boy living on a farm in ( entervilk!
township, near Maseoutali, 111., or rath
er a boy with a remarkable head of
hair. His name is Tommy Johnson,
anil he is about fourteen years of UR'e.
He is the only son of Frank Johnson, a
well-to-do farmer of I'entorville town
ship. The boy is healthy and intelli
gent nnd a great deul like other boys,
with the exception of his wonderful
head of hair.
The hair is straight and black as that
of an Indian ordinarily, but at the ap
proach of u storm the hair begins to
kink anil curl two or three days before
hand, and it, remains in that condition
until after the storm is over, when
again it becomes perfectly straight. If
the storm is of any mag-nituile the hnir
will curl up into little balls.
The boy's hair is used as a barometer
by the farmers of that section. If a
neighboring' farmer wants to haul hay
to town, harvest wheat or any tMng else
that makes him particularly interested
in the weather, he calif, ot the Johnson
home beforehand and looks at Tommy's
hair. If tho hair is straight, the fann
er makes his arrangements to do the
work: but if tho hair is curled, then the
work is postponed until after the ap
proaching storm. The people of the
vicinity bave seen the warning of rains
and storms verified so often that they
have implicit faith iu Tommy's hair us
a barometer, for an ordinary ruin the
hair kinks only a trillo.
A few weeks ago it was discovered
that Tommy's hair was kinked in hard
balls nil over his head, and the news
spread all over the community in a very
short time. The next day a violent
storm struck that section, doing consid
erable damage, After the storm was
over tbe people were greatly relieved,
until it was learned that Tommy's hair
was curled up more than ever, and then
another storm was expected. Ttje sec.
ond storm was a cyclone. H onset were
blown down and several people were
badly in jured in the neighborhood. Aft
er the. cyclone Tommy's hair became
perfectly straight again, and the people
CONCERNING THE STARS.
Tho Word "Fixed" Apiiliml to Heavenly
Bodies (fives a Wrong Impression.
Astronomers tell us that the term
"fixed"' applet! to the. stars is a mistake,
for it is now known that there is not a
fixed star in the heavens, and probably
no such condition as absolute rest in tbe
universe. All. the stars arc in motion,
and some of them are moving at the
rate of two hundred and fifty thousand
miles an hour, or more that thrice the
velocity of our earth on its orbit. It
might be thought that this constant
motion won Id produce continual changes
ill tho stollur relations and alter the
face of the heavens every few years.
Hut the . vast distances at which the
stars are set from us destroy the visual
effect of their motion, and preserve the
unchanging aspect of tho heavens.
None of tbe constellutions have snf
ered a dislocation in three thousand
years. Sinus, Arcturus and tbe Pleiades
are still iu their places. Although the
eighty-one starsin Orion have ever been
in motion, each without relation to any
other, the mighty figure is as it ap
peared to tbe man of Uz forty centuries

FOOD AND DAtltY COMMISSION.
Two Ksse ntiiils for a Baking Powder That
Will Make a Perfec t Bread.
Tho late report of the Miuuesotn State
Food and Dairy Commission contains tho
result of a series of experiments made by
Prof. C. W. Drew, State Chemist, to de
termine tbe strength and keeping quali
ties of the various baking powders.
Tbe report ettaobes great importance
to these experiments. Baking powders
that vary in strength, or that readily lose
streugth before use, are unreliable and
will not give eVeu results; besides, it is
an indication of the use of improper in
gredientsl iu their compounding. Tho
tests showed the strength or leavening
power of the Koyul very much greater
thau tho others. Tho uniformity of
strength of all tho samples of Royal test
ed, no matter what their age, was re
markable, lis leavening power wasprao
ticully unimpaired even in the oldest
specimens. The difference in the amount
of leavening gas iu different samples of
the other brands was so great as to seri
ously impair their usefulness in baking.
As much as 21 per cent. Iohs was found
in samples a few months old. All the
samples of Royal examined by State
Chemist Drew were repot ted of satisfac
tory strength and quality.
Dr. Drew states that the "Royal" be
ing of greuter strength than uny other,
and possessing better keeping qualities,
it is tbe natural conclusion that it is the
best baking powder made.
