Now that the World 's Fair is in successful operation, we deem it wise to give a summary of the U. of M.' contribution, as itappears upon the floor of the Liberal Arts building. Quite extensive space has been given to the U. of M. on the south end of the liberal arts building. The situation of the space is admirable, overlooking the great manufacturers' hall. The University exhibit is in close proximity to the Agricultural college display, as well as that of the public school system. The appearance of the display is somewhat unusual because the walls are decorated in the University colors, yellow and blue, while the prevailing tints elsewhere are red. Space has been given to the University on both sides of the aisle. The railings are of bronze. It is the desire to show that the University is but a part of the public school system, and its workings are illustrated from the labors of the undergraduuates to what is accomplished by the postgraduate. The University does not take second place in the display it makes with any educational institution which is represented at the fair. It covers a greater field than other colleges, and is justly clebrated for this reason. There is shown a collection of books from the library, consisting mostly of wo'rks of professors of the. institution. The display from the chemical laboratory shows what has been done in the line of pharmacy, general chemistry, etc. The engineering laboratory shows a large collection óf work by students in the engineering department, such as boring milis, engine lathes, patterns of all kinds, forges and castings. The forge shop exhibits are quite interesting. The finest collection of coráis in the world is on exhibition here. The medical department displays photographs and work in iology, etc. The dental department shows just what is done by the students from the time of entrance into the college until he graduates. In the civil and mechanical engineering department are seen many drawings and a great deal of original work in designs There is a large chart stand, showing pictures of all the buildings on the campus; a collection of theses of all the departments. The walls are covered with drawings and photographs. Altogether the Ann Arbor exhibit is probably the most interesting college display on the grounds. C. G. Taylor, of Ann Arbor, has been indefatigible in his labors to make the exhibit a great success. - U. of M. Daily.
