In this novel exposition building,
Vermont will havo exhibits to show
thu resources of that statu. Historical
public records, too, will lio there, and
by this means tho statu will show her
part In tho upbuilding ot tho nation.
Modern exhibits will tell of tho pro
gress of Vermont from revolutionary
days to the present time. Tlio middle
ages of ho state will not bo shown;
Just the post and tho present, with a
hint of tho future. Tlio building will
bo arranged in an attractivo manner,
and will, no doubt, bo tho mecca of
thousands of visitors.

There are In all MJO.000 of these fn

The Spanish government officially
rerognlzoil thlrly-tlvc different Ian
gunge In the archipelago. One prime
cause why Philippine civilization In al
Its manifestations has been so nearly
stationary and the differences In lan
guaogc so marked has- been the lack
of proper ways of communication due
to the physical aspects of the country.
The races wero not combined Into
one people under the Kpnnlih regime.
The Spaniards paid no attention to
that dwindling race of dwarfs, the nc
grllos, and accomplished almost noth
ing with the Igorrots. For centuries
they fought, but never really suImIujJ
the slave-holding Moros. Hut howevei
critical one may Le of the character
ot the Spanish leadership Spain res
cued the Filipinos from barbarism and
made them half civilized. The Span
iards, largely through the Instrumen
tality of the church, gradually elevate t
tho whole Filipino people; tbey linlu
enced their customs so that these na
tives have acquired tlio surface man
ner ot civilized people. The brought
to them tho Christian religion now al
most universal nmong tho large Ma
layan portion of the Inhabitants.
The lower classes, outside their
church observances, have probably
mado but few changes In their way
of living during the past 300 years.
Even the upper clasess, who have
adopted the superficial bablta of tho
AN IUORIIOT Itr.AD UV.MTEK.
Fpimlards, throw many of theso off
Iu the privacy of tho home. Knives
and forks, tables nnd chairs, shoes and
stockings, here become supei Unities.
The Filipino Home.
The bouses uf tho large majority of
tho natives to-day are untidy, even
dirty; the people keep hens, horses,
pigs and even tho enormous water
tiurTuIo underneath their dwellings. At
tlielr meals, usually of fish and rice,
thu members of a family squat ou the
floor and eat with their flngeis from
a common dish, Usually the whole
family sleeps ou tho floor, In one room.
Tho frame work of the housei Is usu
ally constructed of bamboo; tho roofj
and walls are made from the leaves
ot the nlpa palm; and tho floor Is of
small bamboo, split and put down,
with open spaces between them, Thero
nru opening In the walls which uu
swer tho purposo of windows. Theso
are provided with shutters of nlpa
leaves. There are n few Ill-kept arti
cles of furniture. Very often there Is
but one room for the wuolo family.
Although the average Filipino Is fond
of his home, ho does not seem to core
for comfort In It In a tropical climate
people live more out of door. Pooplo
of the lower classes In such a cllmuto
really camp and their houses aro hard
ly much more than wigwams. Uccauso
of the enervating climilto tlio iintlvo
la Indolent, and there la no Incentive
to work whero wants aro few and eas
ily supplied. Until thcro Is created In
tho Filipino tho deslro for grtnter bod
ily comfort ho will remain in a low
stnto of civilization.
Furnishings may not be abundant
In tho Filipino homo, but there U
never lacking tho llttlo nltnr, with
images or pictures of saints for uso
In dovotlon. Tho Christianized natives,
as might bo expected from thoir Ma
layan origin, hold tonaclously to cer
tain superstitions, They are, however,
less systematically superstitious than
their pagan and Mohammedan broth
ers. Tho census recently completed gives
the population as about 7,000,000, To
average population of a square mile Is
about no. In Java It Is GOO, and In the
United States 'Si. The growth of tho
population tins been restrained by vio
lent epidemics of tho most drastic
character. A single epidemic of small
pox, eholern and bubonic plague will
easily sweep away Hie natural growth
of several years. In 1002, there wero
more than 100,000 deaths from cholera
alono. The majority of thu towns are
on the const, nnd the distance between
them Is often very great It Is almost
entirely a rural country, and many of
the so-called towns oro mere groups of
villages.
How the Children Are Kducatnt.
American educational efforts have
possibly dono mora to give these peo
ple a true conception of the benefits
of civilization and good government
than all tho other Influences we bavo
brought to bear on them. There oro
now 2.000 schools on the Islands, and
In them KXI Americans and na
tives have In charge 200,000 children.
These children nre young-looking and
attractive. In his youth, the Filipino
boy Is often exceedingly good-looking
and Interesting, with his slight figure
aud rich brown skin suggestive of a
bronze statue, his bright eyes, black
and long eyelashes and eyebrows, ami
Ills expression of cheerfulness and
carelessness. Filipino children are
children of promlsi- (bey are docile,

quick, and mentally alert They have
an aptness for acquiring languages
they learn to speak English very quick
ly and they possess a natural talent
for the lesser mechanical arts. There Is
no doubt that Filipino children excel
American children In docility, Imtta
tlveness and attentlveness. They lack
tbo American child's persistency and
originality.
TATTERS ALL'S 160 YEARS OLD.
Great Hone Market Dne to the Pre
tender' Uprising of 174S.
Many to whom the name of tho
greatest horse market In the world Is
knovai have never read the Interest
ing history connected with tho founda
tion and continuation of tho business.
The name belongs to a good old Lau
cashlre family that has an Innate love
for horses nnd, better than this, la
alwaya loyal to country and king. The
ancient homestead, dating back to the
(Ime of Elizabeth, was near the home
of the poet Spenser, and the surround
ing country is described with great
minuteness in "The Faerie Queen.'
In 1743 young Richard Tattersall
had a friend who went out for the
pretender and Richard was so deeply
compromised that It was considered
necessary for blni to go into hiding
for a time. Naturally he went to
London, and after tlio storm bad sub
sided looked nbout for a means of
earning a livelihood. lie had Inherit
ed n fortune of $50,000, hut most of
It had been squandered on costly
horses and dogs. In later years ho
gave a dinner to all bis old creditors
and each found at his placo a check
for tho sum due him, with Interest
The duko of Kensington appointed
the young man master of tbo horse
and while holding this office equine
matters fell into his hands, so that
In time It became a matter of course
that when a great racing stud was to
bo sold be was tho ono to manage
It. Young Tattersall, seeing his op
portunity, mado tbe start from which
the liusiness has developed. The Jock
ey Club made Tnttersall's Its head
quarters and In time the place became
tho center of tho hunting and racing
world,
Some famous sales hnve been mado
at Tattersall'. When George IV., then
prince of Wales, sent bis stud to the
hammer elgbty-sovcn hones of nil
classes wero sold for htm by Tatter
sall, and the sum realized was $12.
710. Ho afterward stood high In
favor with the prince and royal par-
ties often came over from Newmarket
to drink his wine. It is more than
130 years since a Tattersall founded
tho establishment. Tbe present owner,
Tattersall, 4th, has been actively en
piged In tbo business since 1830. nis
eldest son Is also a partner and bids
fair to carry on tho traditions of tho

The story of the curfew was but
tbo unsupported assertion of one histo
rian of tho sixteenth century, which
waa repeated In prose and poetry till
It was woven luto tbo language. Like
many other legends, there Is Just a
grain of truth In It, but Its suggested
origin is false, the derivation of cur
tew Is erroneous, nnd the scuttlo
shaped Instruiuenta which supported
tbe theory wero quite different articles
of household uso.
Probably thu word Is derived not
from couvro fou, cover flro, but from
carrefourf In old French spelling car
fou, from tho Latin for crossroads,
nnd Is tho name of the morning and
oveutng bell, which originally sounded
from tbo crossroads or market places
both In Franco and England simply to
glvo tbo tlmo ot day. It wan nnd Is
rung at -1 or 0 o'clock In tho morning
and at 8 o'clock In tbo evening. One
Inscription on an old bell runs thus;
I am called ye Curfuo bell,
Ilngen at VIII or more,
To sand ya alls to bsilde.
And wake yo up at IV.

work as thoroughly
as tbe old-time
broom. For this
reason the number
used has decreased
and the broom still
holds its superior
ity. One of the dls
agreeable duties for
the housewife after
sweeping Is to
gather up tbo dust
and dirt in the dust
pan. An Improve
ment in this tine Is
shown in tbe Illustration, tbe Inven
tion of a Southerner. Tbo body of this
dust pan can be of any desired size
or capacity, and Is formed with ver
tical sldo walls and a rear wall, tho
side wails converging to the rear wall.
The bottom of tbe pan Is composed of
two separate portions, tbe front por
tion Inclining downwardly from an In
termediate step, tbo back portion In
clining to the rear wall of the pan.
An aperture Is formed In tbo rear
wall, extending Its full length, while
at the side of tbe aperture are ver
tical guldoways for the accommoda
tion of a movable closure or slide,
t'pbn one side of the back wall la a
Docket for the reception of the handle,
while connected to tbo closure Is a
rod, extending along the handle, this
rod having a finger piece at Its upper
end, so that it can be conveniently
manipulated. A lug In the closure pre
vents tho slide from being pulled open
too far. Hy placing the pan upon the
floor and steadying It by the handle a
dust heap can be readily swept over
the Inclined front bottom portion, drop
ping down over tbe transverse step
and onto tbe sunken rear portion.
where a considerable quantity of
sweepings can be accumulated without
danger of spilling, and emptied by
means of the rod and slide.

America leads the world in the number and enthusiasm of its amateur
photographers. Almost as much money Is spent on the fad here each year us
In all the countries of Europe. About $11,000,000 Is annually spent on cam-
eras alone by the amateurs ot tbe Union. From Insignificant Importance the
business of providing for amateur snap-shotters has grown almost beyond ,
comprehension in tbe last twelve years. Now men by the thousands are
employed making cameras, while entire factories are given over to tbe man
ufacture ot the tiniest article In an amateur's outfit
For years Inventors In that lino have been at work trying to fled some
practical method of photographing in colors. Now the report comes that
.color photography has been practically demonstrated. The new process take
the negative after It Is developed and fixed, and prints from It directly on
the color-sentltized paper, and by a process of washing the most deltcota
differentiation ot tone In the color scheme ot nature is produced. The light
waves attack tbe chemical layers with more or less energy, and accordingly
as they produce different colors are stopped In their passage through the
layers. Tho paper la then subjected to a flow of water of a certain degree of
beat which dissolves the gelatin and exposes tho different colors according
to the amount of light energy with which they have been affected in tho
process of printing. When the process of washing the print is finished the
picture stands out in the full radiance of the colors of nature, the blue sky
with tho white clouds, and the different shades of green of tho foreground
with the shades of green ot distant trees.
