At the dedication ceremonies of the world's fair in Chicago, in 1S93, a "free lunch" was spread in the Electricity building, sufficient to fced'100,000. Nearly 300.000 people entered the fair grounds on' dedication dr.y, and half that number were seated in tlhe Manufacturers Building, witnessing the ceremonies. After the ceremonies, ' the Electricity building was thrown open, the crowd was admitted, it helped itself to food and departed, 'There was no extra police precaution, nobody was hurt, no property was destroyed, nnd mucTi of the food, and all of the .dishes were left on the tables. Of course, no comment was made on these facts. It was nothing but the ordinary. It waa what naturally should be. A few weeks later I met In Chicago n German—a man of wealth and education,' who was on his first trip obroad. lie talked of the wonders he had seen in America, qnd'said: "The most inter- csting and instructive experience I have had was at the dedication ceremonies of the fair. I had j ust arrived from Berlin, and this was my first encounter with an American'crowd. • On dedication day I went to the grounds early. Passing 'the Electricity building. I'saw such a vast spread of..linen and dishes and. stacks of:coM food thatJ inquired of un attendant, what it meant. I was informed that u 'free lunch 1 would be served to 100,000 people after the cere- uir.nirs. I inquired how it would be srrvi'd,' and was astonished to learn that the crowd would be admitted without restriction, and that everyone would .help himself. My experience with the populace was confined to Berlin, and I niade. up my mind that the 'free lunch,' under such conditions, would be the feature of the day, and I determined to get into .a rafe place and see the riot .when tJic people were admitted. "I did not see the ceremony nt the main building. I waited near the door of the Electricity building and Clipped in at the first opportunity. I stayed there for over an hour, and until I was thoroughly disappointed and oston- ished. The people thronged In smiling and begging pardon of onefinother for being compelled to 'crowd and push at ,the entrance. They took what food they wanted, and got out of the way of .the crowd behind, I saw men who were certainly workmen .take a handful of bread and meat and retire, allowing other men to take their places at the tables. "It waa the greatest object lesson in the advance of Christianity I hud ever experienced. It gave me a gKmpse of a social condition I did not think,existed. Why, in Berlin, under the-same conditions/ the first rush of humanity would have swept those tables clean of food, cloths and dishes." I met this some gentleman In the rotunda of the Administration building OD Chicago day at the fair, when the' greatest multitude in the history of the world assembled, when 700.000 people gathered together, restrained only by their desires, and-not one was seriously injured through the selfishness nr ignorance, of the 'others. -My German friend was interested to the point of excitement; He had been watching in • wonder *he great mass of humanity. "What a sight! "'be exclaimed. "You sny there are above, half a million of people here, and there must be more than that. And they come and go as they please, and do as they please,"and not a soldier 'visible. Hut Jhexpect the secret of it is that, everyman out there.is a, soldier in the sense of preserving 1 order.

Here is a fact, says the author, whieh demonstrates the-. possibility of regeneration of nerve tissues in the brain, as well as what was previously known, that active nutrition is maintained in the rest of the organ. , "Moreover, we find in the presence of cells and nerve fibers in the new-formed ronss an explanation 'of the fact concerning the, betterment, although slight, of the sense of sight. This explains also contradictory facts presented by different scientists, in the case of partial extirpation of the brain followed by an amelioration of '.the functions lost during the -first operation."— Literary Digest.
