PHILIPPINES AT WORLD’S FAIR Complete Exhibition of Island People aad Industries, Covers Forty-seven “ Acres and Is Independent of Larger Show. Not even In the heart of Manila city could there-be found foidy-seven acres of Philippine territory as Interesting as th a t amount of space covered by the islands’ display at the World’s Fair. Here Is an exposition within an ex­ position, a little wheel that revolves independently of the larger one encom­ passing it. Scores of buildings a re filled With ex­ hibits, native life is depicted by as many different villages as there are trlb ^ on the islands, military drills are given by Philippine troops, and' con­ certs are rendered by native bands. For Its amusement features the Philip­ pine exposition has the hnmorous Igor- IrZBBBAXi rote, who dines on dog meat, and Visitors are entertained by Visayan actors and actresses. Nothing is lack­ ing to make the show complete. The Administration building Is a rep­ lica of tbe government offices in Ma­ nila, while the Art and Education building reproduces in m iniature the cathedral w ithin the walled city, even the mellowed tints of age being faith­ fully rendered. A section of the an­ cient but still serviceable town wall has been reconstructed to serve the dou­ ble purpose of a gatew ay to the show and-a museum of arms and w a r relics. The other main edifices are types jof Filipino homes, being built of undress­ ed timber, bamboo and rattan, with thatched roofs and broad verandas. Then there are the tribal villages nestling under the trees, some of the houses perched high up among the boughs, others on piles above the wa­ ters of the Arrowhead lake, all of them actual dwellings fashioned of native m aterials by native workmanship and Illustrating the manners, customs and pursuits of their occupants. Here are women weaving a coarse cloth on a rude hand lo5m, others making bas­ kets, others tending Irrigated fields of ricfe One group of men are in village council, trying an offender according to \their tribal laws; others are slowly moving In a circular dance to the thump of tomtoms and the clang of brass gongs; others, again, are smelting Iron by the aid of a primitive but most In­ genious bellows, the constituent parts of which are a bamboo tube and a n air­ tight mop of feathers working therein like the piston of a syrtnge. And these are but a few of a n almost endless va­ riety of life pictures. The ethnological problem is a some­ w h a t complicated one; but, although there are no fewer than sixteen races represented among the village dwellers, the scouts and the constabulary, each race speaking Its own dialect and fol­ lowing Its own customs, all may be roughly classified Into four groups— the t r u e aboriginals or non-Malays, the pagan Malays, the Christian Malays and the Mohammedan Malays. The first a re the d w a rf Negritos, with dark skins and woolly heads, wearers of scanty raiment, proficient in the use of the bow a n d poisoned arrow , a race of nomads and forest dwellers, pagans pure and simple. They live in their own stockaded village; N e x t' to them are the Igorrotes, whose origin is traced back to the first wave of Malay invasion. Here, again, we have scanty elothlng, amounting almost to nudity, but copper colored skins, long wavy tresses, pleasant fea­ tured faces and fine physiques, even though the stature be small. Among these pagan Malays are the head hunt­ ers and the dog eaters. They are sav­ ages, y et h ave their code of laws and a knowledge of several primitive Indus- The Christian Malays, produced by the second wave of Invasion, are rep­ resented by the Visayans, a tall and handsome race, dressing well, living In pretty homes, skilled in weaving, dycf ing, basket making, h a t making, wood carving and other handicrafts, musi­ cians of no mean m e r it the one group of natives who came early and thor­ oughly under the influence o f the early Spanish settlers. Very different are the Moros, who swept into the islands from the Malay peninsula last of all, bringing with ! them their Mohammedan religion, also a knowledge of gunpowder acquired with the Koran from th e Arabs—-fana tics like th rir teachers, pirates, blood­ thirsty, treacherous and vindictive fel- liiws, ever at War anlong themselves and with tb.e whole outside world. De­ spite their ferocity they are a clever race, dress handsomely, have their sul­ tana and th'eir slaves and are expert seamen, while long continued pillage on the high seas has surrounded them with many of the luxuries- and conven­ iences of western civilization. The buildings of Agriculture, Forest­ ry and Fisheries show all the varied natural products, also the extremely primitive processes as yet in vogue, while in the 'Women’s building we are introduced to a number of native man­ ufactures, including, the beautiful fab­ rics from the jusi, 'banana and pine­ apple-fibers, This information is collat­ ed in the Building of Commerce, where a unique a n d most effective method of exhibiting Is followed. In one hall are samples of all the articles produced for export, among which manila fiber, of course, holds the chief place of prom­ inence, while In a second hall are all the manufactures from evelry country th a t aire imported and find a ready m arket among the populace. Thus the business man gets a dual lesson. He sees w h a t he can profitably take from the islands, ^ and also w h a t he may profitably send to them. When i t is added t h a t a large number of represent­ ative Filipinos have been brought over to visit the; Exposition and study Amer- ean business methods and manufac­ tures, i t will be recpgnlzed th a t great benefit both to the islands and to the world a t large m u st result from this work of mutual enllghtenmen-L CONCERTS BY MASSED BANDS Prize# Aggregating $30,000 to Be Dis­ tributed at the Worid'e Fair. Never were musical events in A m e r i­ ca planned upon such a n elaborate scale as those of the World’s Pair. A series of co n c e r t s will be given by competing bands In contest for prizes offered by the World’s Fair. These contests will take place in Festival Hall, Sept 12 to 17. Nine cash prizes, aggregating $30,000, are offered for the successful bands. The prizes are divided so as to give to the organization scoring the highest number of points $3,230; $2,500. will be given to the band scoring -the second highest number of points a n d $1,500 to •the one getting the third highest num- The above division is made for bands in Class A, which consist of twenty members. In the-B class $10,000 W ill be ^v e n in prlzM—first $4,500; second, $3,500; third, $2,000. Class C, which includes bands of thlr- iy-flve members, will enjoy the division of $12,750. For the organization scor­ ing the highest number of points a prize of $6,000 has been named. The second prize Is $4,000 and the third $2,- 700. Bands employed by the Exposition are not permitted to contest. All play­ ers m u st be bona fide members, and each musician m u st h a v e been-enrolled a t least three months prior to the date of the contest Each band m u st send to the bureau the name of its members and a nominal entrance fee. Festival Hall concerts by massed bands will be given a t 7:30 each day during the c o n te st in which all contest­ ing bands will take part under the di­ rection of a distinguished conductor. All bands entering m u st agree to play one concert in addition to the compet­ ing concert and massed concerts. - A separate programme has been pre pared by the Bureau of Music for ea,ch class, and each band will play through the full programme of its class. Tbe numbers in all three programmes are by eminent composers and are chosen with the view of bringing out the qual­ ities of the bands performing them. The list o f composers Includes Wagner, Gou­ nod, Offenbach, Verfil, Saint-Saens, Bi­ zet, ^ tr a u s s and Leoncavallo. WEATHER AT WORLD’S FAIR. Coo! N ights and Delightful Indian S u m m e r to Be Expected a t S t. Louis. ■Dsnally -the warmest month of the year, .July proved to be one of the most pleasant of the World^s Fair season, the average temperature being 67 de­ grees, a record lower than that made by either Boston, New York, FMladel- phla, Cincinnati or Chicago. The weather bureau records show th a t the temperatures in St. Louis duringsJuly were ju s t between the extreme^ re­ corded at New Orleans and S t Paul, cities located at great variance. August in S t Louis Is a month of cool nights, and September and Octo­ ber are the most delightful months of the year. It Is that period known as Indian summer, when the foliage and birds linger to challenge the coming ■winter. Nowhere on the American con­ tinent is there a spot more delightful than the World’s Fair city, a garden of blooming flowers a n d spraying fonn- S t Louis, like all cities, experienced several hot days during July, but her highest tem p erature recorded was 93 degrees against. 94 degrees registered by the -thermometer at Chicago. On the same day the mercury- rose to 96 degrees in Philadelphia, and scores of heat prostrations were reported from New York and Boston. The relative humidity shows S t Louis to be about normal. Assuming absolutely no mgisture In the atmos­ phere to be zero a n d absolute wetness to be 100, the relative humidities for July, taken from the records of more than twenty years, Boston shows 70.6, New York 72.2, PWIadelphla 68.8, Cincin­ nati 64.6, Chicago 66.9 and S t Louis 66.3. The same degree of heat in two places, -with different degrees of hu­ midity, would cause It to seem the hotter a t the point of greater .density. S t Louis may therefore rightly claim to be a summer resort this summer, positively one of the most comfortable and delightful places on the map. Mrs. Welsslitz, Btaffalo, N.
