More than a thousand native Filipi
nos nre living In the to-ncre Philip

homes have been teprodueed In St.

those left behind In the Paeitle archi

braces representative from ninny
tribes, nnd Americans and F.uiopeans
will be interested In seeing the sub
jeots that Uncle Sam acquired with
the Philippine islands, and in leatn
Ing of tholr lives and habits.
Besides the native villages, the
Philippine commission, which has e.
ponded nearly $1.000.0no on the exhi
bit, has erected replicas of many of
the most lamous buildings on the is
lands. Several bits of old Spanish

aborigines of northern Japan, are an
other strange race that may be seen
Looking Down on

peoplo are smnll of stature and their
bodlos are covered with hair.
They are quite a different race from
tho modern Japanese. Japan, indeed,
is In the front rank or nations at tho
i;rcat World's Fair. Tho site selected
by Japan for her group or buildings
Is ono of the choicest alloted to for
eign nations, nnd the enterprising
Japanese have made the most of their
advantages. On a high hill overlook

Never was the United States gov
ernment so deeply Interested In an ex
position as It Is In this MIDI World's
Pair. Alieady the government's in
vestment has reached the $11,000,000
mark, and this does not include the
Philippine expenditures, which wero
paid out of the Insular treasury. Tho
result Is tho greatest exhibit ever
made by Uncle Sam.
One of the Interesting government
exhibits Is the great map of tho
United Stales, worked out In growing
crops, each state being represented
by ci ops chiefly grown in that state.
This map covers six ncrcs of ground.
One who lias not seen the mnp may
have an Idea of Its immense size
when ho is told that Illinois on this
ci op map is 7 feet long. The bound
ary lines between the states are
gravel walks and the World's Fair
lsltor.s stroll at will through the
states, and receive simultaneously a
I -son in geography and agiicnlture.
The largest timepiece In the world

The lranie work is steel, of course,
but it Is so coveied with (lowers that
It appears to have been built entirely
of (lowers, and for that reason it Is
popularly known as the "floral clock."
C.erumny's participation in this
Wot Id's Fair surpasses anything that
that great nation bus ever done at any
other International exposition. Tho
National pavilion, on n high hill over
looking the Cascades, is a faithful
reproduction of the ancient ensile
Charlottonburg. nnd the gardens stir-
the Government Building from the
rounding It are gems of the landscape
architect's art. Germany's immeusc
pavilion, of white and gold, in the
mnmmoth Paluce of Agriculture, is
one of the features or that Interesting
building, while the Palace of Varied
Industries contains another German
exhibit of unique Interest.
Most Interest naturally centers in
the races of the airships. To win

Girl's Question That Paralyzed Gun
She was a dear little girl, and had
spent moHt or her life In n country
rectory. It was not surprising, there
fore, that her knowledge of things
maritime and warlike was not ex
tensive. Tho young gunnery officer of II. M.
S. - had been showing her round
tho battleship. It was tho very tlrst
warship of any kind she had ever
visited, and her mind was full of the
wonderful sights presented.

To Keep Ferns Fresh.
Thero Is a new way to care for

Then till the bathtub with scalding
water and allow tho plants to steam
for three or four hours.
Tho room should bo gradually
cooled before the plants are removed
to a cooler atmosphere. Tills process
does away cutltcly with the laborious
work of washing nnd spraying tho
leaves aud is much more satisfactory.
