The president and other distinguished guests entered the administration building. The president himself . rested for a while in the director general's < office, while the foreign diplomats, the congressmen, the etati legislators and other notables of mpre or less uiagnitude^ gathered in the otunda and agreed that while it was ^m very fine they were glad it was all over. Hunting Something to Eat. Then everyone began -Inmting something to eat. The dignitaries were ac- <on«nodiited4n~the- special diningroom fitted up for the occasion in the administration building where they dined ! in state. The common herd beseiged I the restaurants throughout the grounds and while most of them succeeded in annexing a sandwich or a piece of pie there were many who got nothing at all. ' '•; After dinner the president wearily took up the line of march for the manufactures building , where he did the courteous to a throng of foreigners and ; officials. Then he.was hurried over to the woman's building where he listened to the dedication speeches by Mrs. Potr ter Palmer and others. After the president, the duke and other distinguished guests had partaken Tho duke was jostled severely front the time the party left the German section until an unceremonious exit was .effected at tho north eiwt of the building.

Meanwhile tlie great American public was having the full run of the grounds? for the first time and was enjoying itself thoroughly. It was cloudy all afternoon but no rain fell, and the sidewalks and streets, while they were by no means models of cleanliness so far as absence of mud was concerned, were in condition for active pedestrians.' The crowd didn't mind the urad anyhow, and from noon till the last gate was closed the broad avenues were alive with throngs moving from one to another of the big buildings and sweeping through the midway plaisanee in an unbroken current.
