THE CHICAGO EXPOSITION.
Mayor Washburne Taking Active Steps
for the Opening of tlie World's
Fair on Sunday.
For the Idaho World's Fair building
in a block of stone 10x6 feet will be
carved the coat of arms of the State ot
Idaho and in other blocks the name of
Vermont will send to the World's Fair
an odd exhibit in the shape of the skel
eton of an enormous whale, which was
found several vears ago near Lake Cham
plain, ninety feet above the sea level.
The first exhibit at the World's Fair
grounds is an immense redwood tree,
which was cut by the Tingo River Lum
ber Company near San Gabriel, Fresno
county, Cal. The sections are being
placed in order in the government build
ing. A conference of the newspaper pub
lishers of Chicago and the Hon. J. W.
Robinson, Chief of the machinery de
partment of the World's Fair, was held
at the Herald building the other day,
with James W. Scott presiding. The
object was to consider plans for the pub
lication of a morning and afternoon
paper in the machinery hall during the
world's Fair, in order to afford the gen
eral public an opportunity of observing
tne many processes incident to tne pro
duction of a daily paper. The meeting,
which was of a harmonious character,
had reference to the particular presses
that should be used and their location.
Mayor Washburne of Chicago is tak
ing active steps for the opening of the
World's F"air on Sunday. The Mayor
sent a message to the Council declaring
the people to be most benefited by the
fair are those who are unable to enjoy
the luxury of travel and those who lit
erally earn their bread by the sweat of
their brow?. Sunday closing would de
prive these people of their chief oppor
tunity to see the fair. Furthermore,
Chicago must next year extend hospi
tality to thousands of foreigners, and on
this account alone it would be admissible
to open the fair Sundays. The Mayor
stated that the great majority of the peo
ple are in f wor of an open Sunday, and
asked the Council to prepare an official
address to Congress on the subject.
The suggestion was heartily indorsed,
and the committee appointed.

JOY FOR BALD HEADS.
An Invention That I'rmnUr. to Maka Ufa
Worth Living lor Many,
The wind has long been temjred to
the shorn lamb, but tho baldhead him
had to take the blasts as they carae. No '
hpecial dispeiwations in the matter of .
weather have been made on his account.
He ban had to look out for himself, and
the fact that he survives so iinrnerously
is perhaps tatter evidence of his hustling
ability than of his innate goodness.
Why, no one appears able to tell, but
certain it w that from time immemorial
there has been none to do the balrthead
It will be remembered that when the
original baldhead was making his way
toward Bethel the children by the way
side requested him to "go up." This
expression has no place in modern slang,
but compliance with the order doubtless
involved a journey to sections not down
on our list of desirable habitations. Be
that as it may, the fact remains that the
caput destitue of hairy adornment has
all along been the butt for universal
But it is a long lane which has no
turning, and the baldhead's turn has
come at last. Some enterprising philan
thropist has invented a polish for the
hairless crown which is warranted to
turn it into a thing of beauty and joy
forever. This blessing comes in the
shape of polish, which is easily ap
plied by a barber and imparts to the al
ready shining cjown a shine so brilliant
that it dazzles the eyes and so smooth
that upon it no fly can gain a foothold.
Those who have never experienced
the joys and sorrows of baldness may
not be able to appreciate the value of
this discovery. The value is there just
the same. With a little care the polish
can be made windtight and mosquito
proof, and the baklheaded man will no
longer fall an easy prey to the influenza
laden lireezes. while he can lie down to
dreams unbroken by the assaults of
winged tiling-. Surely the baldhead
millennium is at hand.
The direct moral ! '.- " .': ;uef this dis
covery cannot be. overrated.. With his'
sparsely thatched crown protected from
the attacks Of envious Cascas the bald
head will recover from his tendency to
ward the use of unauthorized expletives,
and he may even rise to the point of
taking a front seat in the sanctuary in
fly time. Relieved of the necessity for
turning his skull into a block upon
which to butcher the musca doinestica,
etc., he will be able to turn his" whole
thought to the sermon, thus setting a
worthy example to the congregation ,
while absorbing truths of which he has
long stood in need.
If there , is justice , in all things, the :
man who makes two blades of grass
grow where one has grown before will
have to take a back seat when the in
ventor of the polish for baldheads comes
in for his reward.
Verily, these be glorious times, and
the baldhead is one of the chief partici
pators in them. Troy Times.
Who Will Bo the Next. Pope?
. It is stated that the French and Span
ish cardinals are concerting for the nom
ination of Cardinal Ziliara as tha suc
cessor to L'.-o XIII. The general feeling
is that at the next conclave the election
of a fot ivipi pope is impracticable, the
only available non-Italian members of
the Sacred College being the Swiss Car
dinal Mermillod, and the American Car
dinal Gibbons. It is not likely, how
ever, that either of these will emerge as
the successor of Leo XIII.
The nomination of Cardinal Zigliara,
who is a Dominican monk, is not alto
gether unlikely. He is a native of Cor
sica, bur, strange to say, he took out let
ters of naturalization as a subject of the
ex-Pontifical states. He is a man of
great learning and quite outside all po
litical questions. I have reason to be
lieve that if the pope died to-morrow
Cardinal Zigliara would be sure of near
ly forty votes. His only opponents would
be the Jesuits, whose nominee is Cardi
nal Monaco la Valetta. Paris Cor. Lou
Boston Wants to Come Nearer.
It is gratifying to observe that the
business men of Boston are disposed to
make an active effort to s?cure quicker
time by rail between this city and New
York. The members of tlie Executive
Business association have discussed the
question, and have come to the very sen
sible conclusion that the public interests
of the city demand a better service, and
that such a service can be secured
"without prejudice to the interests of
the railroads connecting the two cities."
No one who has studied the conditions
involved, and who knows of how much
the modem railway is capable, will doubt
this. A new line would probably not be
a profitable enterprise, but it is within
the power of the existing lines to reduce
tho time of the jotirney by express trains
from six hours to five, and there is no
sufficient reason for delaying to do so;
