one in each building, the holder winning with it the first honors, there being none higher and none other so exclusive.
The award was to the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Company by the unanimous vote of the full Department Jury, and like great distinction was accorded by the full Superior Jury.
The grand prize, another gold medal, was the Baltimore & Ohio on its section as a whole, and denotive of the highest distinction in its class or group.
In conjunction with the grand prize, eighteen collaborators' medals awarded, most of them gold, these going to those who had contributed to the striking educational value and general completeness of the Baltimore & Ohio section.
The Group Jury, followed by the endorsement of the Department Jury, and ratified by the Superior Jury, awarded a gold medal of honor to Major J. G. Pangborn, director of the exhibit, in recognition of the origination and completion of the great historical collection, and the scheme and perfection of its installation.
Additional to the foregoing, and distinctive of the honors awarded the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Company in the Transportation Building, is the grand prize and gold medal in the group of "Engineering and Architecture in the Department of Liberal Arts, this being on the model of the new Union Station at Washington, which is the central feature of the Baltimore & Ohio section in the Department of Transportation.
The 'Sweepstakes," as it might be termed, in the fourteen acres of exhibits in the Department of Transportation, the grand prize in the railway group of the same building, another grand prize in the Department of Liberal Arts; and the medal of honor, four gold medals of the very highest class; and twenty-five other medals, most of them gold, is the company's Louisiana Purchase Exposition record.

HE United States government has a
variety of sources of income; but the oddest, and, indeed, the most
novel wealth-producing factor in possession of any nation on the globe is found in the sentiment which impels a considerable portion of the American people to contribute to what is known as Uncle Sam's Conscience Fund,” says Waldon Fawcett in the Chicago RecordHerald.
This Conscience Fund” is a repository of hoarded riches in the treasury department at Washington into which a golden stream is constantly pouring, but from which no money is ever withdrawn. It is made up wholly of contributions from persons who send sums to the government for the purpose of reimbursing Uncle Sam for money or its equivalent which has at some previous time been wrongfully taken or improperly withheld from the government by these persons, whose consciences later compel them to make restitution.
Of course the money received in this peculiar manner is not depended upon to keep in motion the wheels of any portion of the machinery of government. It is well that it is not, for the receipts fluctuate greatly in volume.
To be sure,
ernment revenue received from other sources, such as duties, taxes, postage, licenses, etc., is not always uniform, but there are manifest no such pronounced “booms” and periods of depression as are likely to succeed one another in the business of the Conscience Fund.”
That these sops to troublesome sciences come into Uncle Sam's moneychest by fits and starts is by no means strange, when it is remembered that the government has no law or compulsion to make its delinquents pay. In most instances it does not even know of the existence of the indebtedness, and so it must simply wait until the debtor is ready and able to pay up. It is noticeable that after the receipt of
or more large contributions to the mysterious fund is chronicled in the newspapers there is almost certain to be a flood of donations. Some of them come from persons who had thus only just learned how they might quietly set things right with Uncle Sam. Seasons of general prosperity also stimulate the business of the Conscience Fund.' At such times people who are doing well financially seize the opportunity to settle arrears with the government.
