World's Fair Notes.
The Methodists have decided to
hold an international camp meeting
of a month' duration at the time o
the exposition. It will be held hal
the time at Drsplainesand theother
half at I,ake I In IT. Both places are
a few miles out from Chicago.
" A handsome two story building,
165 by 310 feet with a central court 04
by 211 feet, will be erected at once
in Jackson Park for use aa the
headquarters for the couatructioi
department, fire department and
police oflicers. The building wil
also contain a hospital, restaurau
and sleeping quarters-
A very complete, and doubtless
an eye-openingdiamond exhibit will
be made by Cape Colony, South
Africa. The exhibit will include 10,
OOG carats of uncut stones, a large
cjuanity of very Fine cut and polished
ones, together with all that is neces
sary to show the process of mining
and washincr. For this it will be
necessary to transport to Chicago
100 tons of pulverized blue earth, 50
tons of unpulverized earth and a
complete washing machine, which
will be operated by natives. The ex
hibit will also include a unique col
lection of crocidolite, special dia
mondiferous products, ostrich
feathers, fleeces, etc. It is reported
that a Bushman and Hottentot in
native dress will accompany the
Considerable misapprehension ex
ists both in this country and abroad
as to the mines and mining ex
hibit which is to be made at the ex
position. At world's fairs hereto
fore, mineral and allied exhibits
"have been shown in the manufact
ures building, or in annexes to
other structures occupied by exhib
its having but i emote relation to
anything of the mineral description.
Many press noticed and comments
indicate that the impression prevails
widely that such is to be the case
at Jthe Expostion of 1803. But that is
far from being true. "Mines and
Mining" has been made a seperate
and distinct "Department" of the
Classification of Exhibits, and will
have the exclusive use of one of the
finest and largest of the Kxposition
buildings. The mines and mining
building measures 350 by 7C0 feet,
has a total floor space of almost G
acres, ana cost $ji,ikK the tact is
that, at the world's Columbian ex
position, for the first time in the
history of such enterprises, the min
ing industry and products are ac
corded the recognition which their
exceedingly great importance to the
wealth and prosperity of all civil
ized nations really demands. Mr.
Skiff, Chief of the department, saj's
that it is already assured that in the
mines and mini ng building will be
gathered in 1S03 incomparably the
largest array and most complete and
most instructive evidence of the
mineral wealth and progress of the
mining industrv ever collected or

ifi A Fatal Fall
it Yesterday Dan Rice, the colored
porter in the Barker building in
Omaha had a frightful fall that
would of instantly killed any one
else. He was standing on a ledge
of a window on the third floor on
the 'Fifteenth street side, washing
the window. He started to step in,
ind, missing his footing, fell to the
walk. In transit his head struck
the cornice directly over Wessel's
' store and made an indention as deep
, v 1 1
ta a mini ilium.
Rice was picked up insensible and
' i patrol wagon moved him to the
police station where Dr. Towne was
Ocallbd. Therfjwas a wound in the
v 'man's head nearly two inches deep
jfind a portion of his brains was ex
5 josed. It was a miraculous escape
fs'rom instantaneous death, say the
J hjrsicians. He was removed to the
j fiospital and the physicians there
' j'lo not think he can possibly live.'
