ANNUAL REPORT OF THE DIRECTOR. 
1898-1899. 



To the Trustees of the Field Columbian Museum: 

I have the honor to present a report of the operations of the 
Museum for the year closing September 30, 1899. The same careful 
attention to the details and routine of departmental work has been 
continued, and the customary regime sustained. A greater amount of 
new material has been placed on exhibition, and the improvement in 
the general appearance of the Exhibition Halls has been more notice- 
able than during any twelve months of which a report has been made. 
This statement applies almost equally to each department, although 
to those associated with the Museum it is more apparent in the De- 
partments of Anthropology and Zoology. Few changes have been 
made in the working staff of the Museum, and those changes have 
concerned only subordinate positions. The discipline of the Institu- 
tion has been creditable, its progress has been steady and definite, 
and it is believed that consideration of the minutiae following will 
demonstrate the wisdom of the carefully devised plans of the execu- 
tive committee, and the fidelity with which those plans have been 
executed. 

Income and Maintenance. — The annual budget approved by the 
executive committee provided the sum of ;^io2,ooo.oo for the main- 
tenance of the Museum for the fiscal year. The actual amount 
expended was $92,736.25, leaving a balance within the anticipated 
expenses for the year of $9,263.75. In addition to the cost of 
maintenance, sums were expended upon authority of the executive 
committee, for collections and new installations, expeditions, etc., 
that brought the total to $128,936.50. The deficit, as on previous 
years, has been met by individual contributions and by the further 
sale of securities. Comparing the expenditures of maintenance this 
year with those of last year, there is discovered a slight increase in 
the compensation of departmental assistants, in part balanced by a 
reduction in that of the general staff and in the lesser amount ex- 
pended for materials for maintenance and repairs to the building. 
The difference in the total expenditures for maintenance, comparing 

351 



352 Field Columbian Museum — Reports, Vol. i. 

1899 with 1898, was about $4,000.00 in favor of the previous year. 
The sum expended in excess of the budget — $36,000.00 approximately 
— was exclusively for expeditions, new material, new cases and publi- 
cations ; therefore, with the exception of the cost of the publications, 
$1,700.00, the amount expended above the provisions of the budget 
is represented by Museum material and equipment in value consider- 
ably in excess of that amount. The books of the Museum have been 
compared with the Treasurer's statement and a certificate of agree- 
ment issued. 

The Memberships. — There has been a further decrease in the 
number of annual memberships, mostly by formal resignations, and 
for reasons in each case that seemed to justify the retirement. This 
may be expected in greater or less degree each year, so long as no 
effort is put forth even to hold the membership already obtained. 

Lecture Courses. — The spring and autumn lecture courses, 
comprising Course Number Ten, in October and November, 1898, 
nine lectures, and Course Number Eleven, in March and April, 
1899, nine lectures, had the same gratifying attendance that has now 
become the custom. There have been very few lectures when the 
demands for admission have not exceeded the capacity of the hall, 
and in no case has the attendance been unsatisfactory. The offers 
of participation in the lecture courses by students in the fields 
represented by the scope of the Museum have been sufficient to 
present very interesting lists of lectures without taxing the members 
of the Museum staff, except in one or two instances. Following 
is the Tenth Lecture Course, with the subject and lecturers :

Publications. — In typographical appearance and in the character 
of the illustrations the publications of the museum have been more 
satisfactory than in any previous year, and the requests for exchange 
from corresponding institutions and from individuals who publish 
have been very numerous and from complimentary sources. The 
following list is presented, giving the titles of publications since 
the date of the last report, with the number of pages and illus- 
trations:

The last publication in the list, as may be gathered from the 
description, was not an issue in the regular Ornithological series 
of the Museum, but its author being a member of the Museum 
staff, the Institution made arrangements with him to provide its 
correspondents and subscribers with the publication. No changes 
have been made in the system of distributing these papers, but 
an index book has been added for ready reference containing the 
names of individuals and institutions on the mailing list. The follow- 
ing table presents a record of the disposition of the publications by

The acknowledgment of the courteous assistance of the Bureau 
of International Exchanges connected with the Smithsonian Institu- 
tion is renewed. The Fifth Edition of the Guide is nearly exhausted, 
and arrangements are now in progress for the sixth edition. While, 
as stated in the report of 1898, this publication has become rather 
bulky, it does not appear that the time has yet arrived to issue 
departmental guides, so that room for new material in the forth- 
coming edition will be made by condensing or omitting the descrip- 
tions contained in the current form.

Oct. 1899. Annual Report of the Director. 357 

Library: — The library at present contains 9,993 books and 11,175 
pamphlets, distributed as follows : 

Books. Pamphlets 

General Library 7.707 8,320 

Department of Geology 1,141 2,570 

Department of Botany ^ 328 233 

Department of Ornithology ' 368 

Department of Zoology 236 

Department of Anthropology 153 50 

In this cpnnection it should be mentioned that the greater part of 
the reference works and reports on anthropology, zoology and botany 
are kept in the General Library, owing to lack of space in the labora- 
tories. The additions during the fiscal year were 930 books and 1,545 
pamphlets and bulletins, making a total of 2,475 titles. Of these 
only 72 books and 8 pamphlets were added by purchase, and 36 
books and 13 pamphlets, by exchange. Consequently the additions 
by gift and exchange for Museum Publications amount to 2,348 
books and pamphlets derived from 574 institutions and indi- 
viduals. While this is an increase of 16 per cent as compared with 
the preceding year, it is hardly as good a showing as the extensive 
mailing list of the Museum would seem to warrant. It is to be 
hoped that the individuals and institutions on the exchange list will 
more generously reciprocate during the coming year. Among the 
gifts, special mention is made of the reproductions of two Mexican 
codices and two other interesting volumes, from the Due de Loubat. 
Mr. George Manierre presented a valuable collection of 19 volumes, 
referring to the archeology of Egypt, and Mr. D. M. Cummings 38 
illustrated works on ancient and modern laces. The literature on 
the flora of Europe was materially strengthened by a collection of 
32 volumes, received from Mr. M. Gaudoger, in exchange for plants. 
The number of periodicals subscribed for is 55, the number received 
in exchange or as gift, 51, exclusive of the periodical publications 
of societies, academies, etc. The work of preparing subject cards 
for the more important papers in the scientific proceedings, transac- 
tions, bulletins, and reports, has progressed steadily, some 4,500 
cards having been added during the fiscal year. The cataloguing of 
this material is a rather ambitious undertaking, and one that most 
libraries omit, but no extra help being required to accomplish a modest 
amount of it each year, it is felt that the spare hours of the librarian 
and his assistant cannot be applied to better advantage. When 
finished, the Museum is likely to possess one of the most completely 
catalogued libraries in the country. The shelf list, author, and sub- 
ject catalogues have been kept strictly up to date, and not a few of 
the earliest accessions have been re-classified to meet the practical 



358 Field Columbian Museum — Reports, Vol. i. 

needs of the Museum. During the year 368 volumes have been sent 
to the binder, 108 of which are still in his hands. The great amount 
of dust gathering from the courts and elsewhere makes constant atten- 
tion to the cleaning of the books indispensable. It is found necessary 
to remove and clean* every volume in the General Library at least 
once a year. Of the duplicate catalogue of the John Crerar Library, 
some 5,000 cards have been received during the year and arranged 
in alphabetical order. The publication of the Union li|t of periodi- 
cals, undertaken by the Chicago Library Club, has been somewhat 
delayed, but it may be expected to appear some time next winter. 

Records. — No changes have been made in the methods of record- 
ing material received or distributed, the original system adopted 
proving eminently satisfactory. The total number of specimens ac- 
cessioned during the year has been 17,348. The classification of the 
accessions follows:

Departmental Cataloguing, Inventorying and Labeling. — The de- 
partments of the Museum may be said to have reached new material 
in inventorying and cataloguing, and the new labels have so supplanted 
the old ones that the latter are noticeable when seen in a case. The 
system inaugurated in 1897 has proven entirely satisfactory, and the 
facility with which the history of a specimen may now be obtained 
greatly lessens the work of cataloguing and writing descriptive labels. 
There were something more than 12,000 new entries made in the 
departmental inventories during this year, exceeding any year since 
the first. In the Department of Geology specially advanced work 
has been done in providing labels for the mineral collection. These 
labels show the name of the species exhibited by the specimen, its 
locality, the catalogue number of the species and the number of the 
species in Dana's system. The latter serves for reference to the case 
labels, described in a previous report, which show the chemical com- 
position and system of crystallization of the species and its relation 
to other species. In connection with this work the specimens labeled 
have been thoroughly re-identified and any errors found in previous 
labeling have been corrected. The collections of coals and hydrocar. 
bons, occupying Hall 70, and of non-metallic minerals of use in the 
arts, occupying Hall 78, have been provided throughout with printed 
descriptive labels. A complete descriptive label has been provided

The entry and cataloguing of the Bebb Herbarium having been 
completed — with the exception of the lower cryptograms — a sum- 
marized account of the specimens in the Department of Botany will 
doubtless be of considerable interest, not only to the trustees of the 
Museum, but to the botanical world as well. Such sufltnmary is as

Accessions. — While the gifts to the Museum have not been nota- 
ble, either in character or number, yet, as a result of expeditions and 
by taking advantage of unusual opportunities to purchase, the num- 
ber of entries of new material, omitting the Herbarium puchased late 
in 1898, is very satisfactory. Among the acquisitions of the Institu- 
tion of more than ordinary interest may be mentioned the following:

Exchanges. — The system of exchanging material with other insti- 
tutions and individuals has been considerably extended during the 
past year, especially abroad, and a great deal of correspondence 
has taken place between the curators of the different departments 



Oct. 1899. Annual Report of the Director. 363 

and their contemporaries that will result in largely increased acces- 
sions from this source. Among the institutions with which transac- 
tions have been had during the past year may be mentioned the 
Herbarium Boissier, of Switzerland ; the Hope Botanical Gardens, of 
Jamaica, Kingston ; the University of Iowa, Iowa City, Iowa ; the 
Hof Museum at Vienna ; the Newark Technical School ; the Univer- 
sity of Wisconsin ; the British Museum ; the Indian Museum at Cal- 
cutta ; the National Museum at Washington ; the Leland Stanford, Jr. 
University, and the Australian Museum, Sydney. The number of 
specimens sent in exchange during the year was 577, representing 
23 different transactions. The number of specimens received in 
exchange was 5,852, representing 29 transactions. 

Expeditions and Field Work. — Each department of the Museum 
has performed valuable work in the field during the year ; valuable 
not alone as a contribution to science, but valuable to the Museum 
as regards the new material obtained thereby. The following is a 
list of the expeditions of the Museum since the date of the last 
report :

During April of this year, Mr. Dorsey, Curator of the Depart- 
ment of Anthropology, accompanied by Mr. Phillips, of Evanston, 
visited Mill Creek, Union County, Illinois, and collected a very large 
number of stone implements and rejects. More recently Mr. Dorsey 
visited the Pomo Indians of California, and had a most successful 
trip. From California he went to Tacoma, where he was joined by 
the modeling force, and casts of Indians of that section, intended to 
represent the principal aboriginal industries and customs, were 
obtained. From Tacoma the expedition went to Vancouver Island, 
for the purpose of taking of several Kwakiutl Indians casts intended 
for a large ceremonial group illustrating certain phases of religious 
life. Mr. Millspaugh, Curator of the Department of Botany, was in- 
vited by Mr. Allison V. Armour, one of the patrons of the Museum, 
to map out a cruise of the Antillean Islands calculated to best corre-

late the studies of the Curator in the Flora of Yucatan. The itinerary 
was made to include Bermuda; San Juan, Caguas, Ponce and 
Guanica, Porto Rico; St. Thomas, Culebras Islands, San Domingo, 
Jamaica, Santiago, Cayman Brae, Grand Cayman, Isle of Pines, 
Cozumel, Yucatan and the Alacran Shoals. Nearly 2,000 sheets of 
plants were secured and about 500 negatives were obtained by the 
photographer who accompanied the expedition. A great many notes 
were taken- A full report of this trip of three months is now in course 
of publication in the Museum series. Upon the invitation of Mr. 
Edward E. Ayer, Mr. Millspaugh also made a short trip to Flagstaff, 
Arizona, and the Canon of the Colorado River. Although the excur- 
sion was a hurried one, a large number of interesting specimens were 
collected in this region. Under appointment as Honorary Special 
Agent of the Department of Mines and Metallurgy of the United 
States Commission to the Paris Exposition of 1900, Assistant Curator 
Nichols spent about six weeks during the early summer in visiting the 
zinc and lead mining regions of New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, 
Tennessee, Kentucky, Southern Illinois, Missouri, and Kansas. 
About 300 specimens were thus collected, illustrating the zinc and 
lead ores of the regions visited, besides many choice specimens of the 
minerals which accompany the ores. After being exhibited at the 
Paris Exposition, the collection so obtained will become the property 
of the Museum, and will form a valuable addition to the economic 
collections now on hand. During the month of July an invitation was 
extended by officials of the Union Pacific Railroad to the Curator and 
assistants to join the Fossil Fields Expedition to Wyoming, then be- 
ing organized. While appreciating thoroughly the courtesy of this 
invitation, it was believed that larger results could be secured by 
spending the time and funds available in work at one locality. Ac- 
cordingly, Assistant Curator Riggs, and H. W. Menke as photog- 
rapher and general assistant, were dispatched to a field near Medicine 
Bow, Wyoming, where three months were devoted to collecting fossil 
reptile remains in the Jurassic beds of that region. While it is yet 
too early to judge accurately of the material obtained, there is no 
doubt that the results will be highly satisfactory and that much has 
ibeen secured along a line hitherto entirely unrepresented in the 
TMuseum. About five tons of bones in the matrix have been shipped, 
and a list received from Mr. Riggs quotes the following among the 
material collected: 

Femur, tibia, scapula, coracoids, caudal, dorsal and cervical ver- 
tebrae, ilium and ischium of Brontosaurus; femur, scapula, cervical, 
dorsal, and caudal vertebrae of Morosaurus; femur, scapula, pubis, 25 



Oct. 1899. Annual Report of the Director. 365 

caudal vertebrae, and eight ribs of Diplodocus; ilium, ischium, femur, 
and metapodils of Creosaurus, and tibia and fibula of Camptosaurus. 
Many of these remains illustrate the great size attained by these an- 
cient reptiles. Thus the Morosaurus femur obtained is five and one- 
fourth feet in length, the scapula and coracoid are five and one-half 
feet in length and have a weight of 400 lbs., and the centra of the 
caudal vertebrae of Brontosaurus have a diameter of thirteen inches. 
Besides the above, several species of Jurassic invertebrates were col- 
lected and about six dozen negatives, showing quarry views, strati- 
graphy and land sculpture of the region were made by Mr, Menke. 
Through the courtesy of the officials of the Atchison, Topeka & Santa 
Fe Railway, opportunity was given Mr. W. N. Logan to make a 
special collection of fossils of the Fort Benton beds of Central Kansas 
for the Museum. He spent about a month in the field and secured 
about 200 specimens of the fossil invertebrates and septaria which 
characterize those beds. Mr. Surber, the regular collector in the De- 
partment of Zoology, has done effective work in Oklahoma Territory. 
Mr. Elliot, the Curator of the Department, accompanied the Harri- 
man expedition to the Northwest as an invited guest, but not specially 
as the representative of the Museum. He, however, obtained several 
valuable specimens and will undoubtedly make notable contributions 
to the literature of natural history. Mr. Meek, the assistant curator 
in the Department of Zoology, was quite successful in an expedition 
to California, and on the occasion of visits to adjacent biological 
stations. 

Installation, Rearrangement, and Permanent Improvement. — 
Among the permanent improvements in and about the Museum, and 
in addition to the work involved in re-installation, may be mentioned 
the construction of a second story to the Taxidermist's shop, 30 by 60 
feet in area. The lower floor is now entirely devoted to storage of 
specimens considered too valuable to be placed in the Jefferson 
Avenue building. The Laboratories of the Departments of Zoology 
and of Botany, have also been practically rebuilt and very considerably 
extended. Repairs to the building itself are a source of constant at- 
tention, the care required and the money expended increasing each 
year. Foundation stones were placed under Rooms 20, 22 and 5. An 
experiment in whitewashing above the line of the base on the outside 
of the building has proved so successful as to warrant going over the 
entire course, and the plaster statuary at the entrance of the building 
has received needed attention. The work of reinstalling the East 
Court has been completed this year and it is now devoted exclusively 



. 366 Field Columbian Museitm — Reports, Vol. i. 

to material relating to Archaeology. The north alcoves are devoted 
to the Archaeology of United States and Canada; the central portion 
contains Mexican and Central American Archaeology, with the excep- 
tion of those cases at the west end, which illustrate the ancient flint 
proper, soapsto.ne, and red pipestone quarries of the United States, 
and at Brandon, England, while the east end cases are devoted to the 
cliff dwellers and the Pueblo models. The south alcove contains 
South American Archaeology. Every case in the court has not only 
been re-installed but has been entirely re-classified, several standard 
cases being used in the installation of the Mexican and South Ameri- 
can Archaeology. Material relating to the Ethnology of the Eskimo 
has been re-classified and re-installed in new cases, Hall 10 being de- 
voted to clothing and utensils of domestic use and to two figures (from 
life) engaged in skin scraping and ivory drilling. Hall 11 contains 
implements of the chase, stone implements, methods of transporta- 
tion, and three cases of figures representing a harpoon thrower in a 
kyak, a girl fishing from the ice, and a group of three figures and 
several dogs, illustrating the return home of the husband from a suc- 
cessful seal hunt. Ethnological objects heretofore in the East Court 
and south alcoves have been re-installed in their proper geographical 
locations. Halls 14 and 15, heretofore containing South America 
Archaeology, have been dismantled and renovated and are now devoted 
to the Ethnology of Mexico, Central and South America, new cases 
having been provided. Owing to the demand for additional space for 
the recently acquired Hopi collection, it was found necessary to move 
the lately installed cases of British Guiana, Venezuela, and Paraguay 
material from Hall 16 to Hall 15. , The Rev. H. R. Voth, from 
whom the collection of Hopi material was purchased, is en- 
gaged in reproducing certain ceremonial altars of the Hopi Indians 
to be installed in Hall 16. Already a large portion of the Mc- 
Cormick collection has been installed and labeled in Hall 17. In 
Edward E. Ayer Hall every case of specimens except those given 
to the Ethnology of the Northwest Indians, has been subjected to a 
careful revision, classification and labeling. In Hall 33, devoted to 
ceramics, a portion of the Higinbotham Korean collection has been 
temporarily installed ; and a part of the same collection has 
been shown in Hall 4. In the Herbarium of the Department of 
Botany, where the entire time of the Curator has been spent 
when not in the field, many improvements have been accomplished 
and a large amount of installation performed. Additional space for 
work has been gained from hitherto unavailable floor space. This 
has been included in the Herbarium rooms in the shape of a stor- 



Oct. 1899. Annual Report of the Director. 367 

age section and a larger and more complete, work-room, to which 
three tables have been added for the accommodation of specialists 
and monographists who desire to use the collections for research. 
The growth of the collections has been so large and the charac- 
ter so excellent that this section of the department now takes 
high rank as the largest herbarium in the Central United States, 
while the methods of installation and recording of specimens 
establishes its usefulness. The labor of arranging the large amount 
of departmental material for exchange has progressed favora- 
bly. Over 5,000 plants have been mounted, poisoned, find installed 
in the cases, and over 2,000 identified, classified, and prepared for 
publication. Hall 70, devoted to coals and hydrocarbons, has been 
entirely rearranged and the collections newly installed. Many of 
the specimens, especially the larger ones, had not before been cased 
and were suffering from dust and disintegration. Wall cases, 8 
feet high and from 17 to 29 inches deep, have accordingly been pro- 
vided, and these, with four floor cases, furnish casing for all the 
specimens. In order to guard against danger from spontaneous 
combustion, the case containing the larger specimens has been 
lined at the base with asbestos millboard ^/^-inch thick, and the 
adjoining walls have been covered with two thicknesses of asbestos 
paper. The interiors of all the cases have also been painted with 
asbestos paint. Many of the«pecimens in the form of blocks, 6x6x 10 
inches in size, have been treated by soaking twenty-four hours in thin 
shellac in order to prevent disintegration. For exhibiting lump coal 
or coal in broken fragments, a form of metallic tray was devised which 
serves admirably for purposes of exhibition. The form (illustrated 
elsewhere) is that of a deep tray with two sides divergent, cut down in 
front to a narrow strip the contents giving support to the label. 
The tray is made of tinned iron, bound at the edges with wire 
and enameled a drab color outside and white inside. It is be- 
lieved it will be found admirably adapted for exhibiting other loose 
substances, such as clays and earthy minerals, in upright cases. To 
the specimens formerly exhibited in the hall have been added a 
number of new series recently received by gift or collection or 
brought from storage, so that the collections now fully illustrate 
the varieties, origin and uses of coals and mineral hydrocarbons. 
The collections in Hall 78, devoted to non-metallic minerals of 
use in the arts, have been entirely rearranged in order to make room 
for new material and rectify the classification. Four new cases 
have been added, and the interiors of all the cases have been 
painted black. Among the new material added are two collections 



368 Field Columbian Museum — Reports, Vol. i. 

prepared by Assistant Curator Nichols, illustrating the Le Blanc 
and ammonia processes for the manufacture of soda and the differ- 
ent products obtained. The graphic method of installation which 
has been described in a previous report and which has proved most 
satisfactory in the representation of metallurgical processes, has 
here been employed as well. Where liquids are exhibited, the 
cases being flat, a rectangular glass tray, 6x5x1^ inches in size, with 
a glass cover, has been employed. Specially corrosive or poisonous 
liquids and gases are exhibited in sealed glass tubes about i 
inch in diameter and 9 inches in length. The collection of min- 
eral paints in Hall 77, which stood in a central case obstructing 
the passageway, has been removed, with additions, to another part of 
the hall. A collection of art tiles has also been placed upon the 
walls of this hall. In Hall 71, devoted to petroleum and its prod- 
ucts, the cases have been repainted inside and out, the specimens 
cleaned and newly installed. The heavy iron label frames and 
exposed jars, which were liable to cause or to suffer injury, have 
been removed, and all the material in the hall is now cased. Six 
large ore specimens in Hall 72 have been provided with individual 
cases. The valuable series of iron and steel fractures shown in 
Hall 76, which were beginning to rust, has been carefully cleaned. 
The cases containing the fractures have been relined and repainted 
inside and the sashes fitted with jambs of rubber. With the case 
thus made air-tight, by the use of lime or other drying ingredient 
it is expected to keep the case interiors dry and thus prevent any 
further rusting of the fractures. Some other minor changes have 
been made in the casing in this hall. The interiors of most of the 
wall cases and part of the floor cases in Hall 79 have been painted 
white, and a large wall case added to contain the heavy specimens 
formerly piled along the south wall. About one-third of the cases 
containing the systematic mineral collection. Hall 63. have been 
relined, the specimens cleaned and reinstalled. A stack of trays for 
storage purposes has been placed along the east wall of Hall 75. An 
aspirator, filter-pump and air-bath have been added to the equipment 
of the laboratory. The work-room of vertebrate palaeontology has 
been provided with stacks of storage-trays, work-tables and other fit- 
tings. New pasteboard trays have been supplied throughout to the 
palaeontological collection in Halls 35, 36 and 59. The old trays, 
being of inferior quality, had become much faded and soiled. The 
new style of tray, adopted after some experimenting, was a shallow 
tray covered with black glazed paper, except where the specimen was 



Oct. 1899. Annual Report of the Director. 369 

very dark in color, when a tray with white interior was used. For 
several collections exhibited in upright floor cases in Hall 35, a 
mount of manila board, three-sixteenths of an inch in thickness, 
covered with paper of the Museum standard color, with a black ground 
for the specimen and a ruled space for the label, has been employed. 
Warping of the mount is guarded against so far as possible by putting 
cloth between the several layers of board used in its construction. 
In spite of this precaution, some of the larger mounts have warped 
slightly, but with this exception the mount seems admirably adapted 
for the exhibition of small specimens in upright cases. In Halls 
35 and 36 the vertebrate fossils collected by the Bad Lands expedi- 
tion of 1898 have been installed as fast as they were made ready. 
The specimens now on exhibition include a magnificent skull of 
Titanotherium ingens, being one of the largest and most perfect ever 
found, six cervical and five dorsal vertebrae of the same individual, a 
complete skull, but without lower jaws, of Tit anoi her turn iichoceras, 
many miscellaneous bones of Titanotherium and skulls of Mesohippus, 
Leptomeryx, Daphcenus and others. The complete series of forms of 
DcBtnonelix, or " Devil's Corkscrew," secured by the same expedition, 
has also been installed in an individual case. The forms shown are: 
a spiral with an axis, a rhizome, and turning to the right; a spiral 
without an axis, without a rhizome, and turning to the right; a spiral 
without an axis, with a rhizome, and turning to the left; and a spiral 
without an axis, with a rhizome, and turning to the right. A series 
illustrating the phyllogeny of Dcemonelix, worked out by and received 
from Prof. E. H. Barbour, has also been installed with the collection, 
as well as photographs showing the mode of occurrence of the speci- 
mens. The work of cleaning and mounting the above-mentioned 
material occupied Assistant Curator Riggs, with some assistance from 
H. W. Menke, during the winter and spring months. There was, 
however, much other material partially cleaned which can be 
made ready for exhibition in a short time. A complete skeleton of 
Dinornis, which had been on hand since the opening of the Museum, 
has been provided with an individual case and placed in Hall 35. 
The series of photographs of the moon received from the Lick and 
Paris Observatories has been framed and is exhibited in connection 
with the moon model in Alcove log, together with a chart of the 
moon's surface and a complete descriptive label. In the Department 
of Zoology, the increased space given the offices of the Curator, by 
enclosing the outside gallery within them, has been utilized to the 
very best advantage, and although the rooms are still too small, yet 
work can be carried on with much additional comfort and satisfaction

Field Columbian Museum — Reports, Vol. i. 



Experiments relating to the exhibition of alcoholics, in cases with 
plate glass fronts, have been made in this department and promise 
to be successful. The greater part of the conchological collection, 
about 5,000 sets, is now in process of remounting on cardboard tab- 
lets and being re-labeled. The shell collections have been carefully 
gone over during the year and an index record made for the entire 
collection. Three groups, wild asses, cheetahs, and striped hyena, 
have been finished by the Taxidermist and placed on exhibition in the 
West Court. Sundry single specimens have been added to the sys- 
tematic collection in Hall ig. 

Photography and Illustrations. — Subtracting the three months 
that the Photographer spent in the West Indies this year, the work 
in that section shows progress and development. The following table

Printing. — The printing office shows good results. Its capacity 
should be increased, but this would call for more room, which is not 
available. Additions in a small way, calculated to increase the effi- 
ciency of the section, have been made during the year. The following 
Tvork has been accomplished:

Many of the descriptive labels were unusually large and tested the 
ability of the printer and his facilities. 

Taxidermy. — Much work has been accomplished in this important 
section during the past year. Three groups, wild asses, cheetahs, and 
striped hyenas have been finished and placed on exhibition, and three 



Oct. 1899. Annual Report of the Director. 371 

other groups are well on their way towards completion. Besides 
these, sundry single specimens, including a wild sheep, an ibex, and 
a deer have been mounted. The new building has proven very satis- 
factory and work can now be accomplished with comfort and without 
the risks and inconvenience that obtained in the previous confined 
space. The groups executed by Mr. Akeley keep fully up to the high 
standard of excellence exhibited by those previously produced by 
him, and place the Museum's possessions in this class of work not 
equalled by any other institution in this country. In pursuance of 
the authority of the Executive Committee, needed assistance has 
been given the taxidermist, and work is constantly proceeding with 
much more satisfaction with regard to its quantity. A large number 
of birds have been mounted. 

Attendance. — The total attendance of the year shows a decrease 
•of 942. This, in view of the notably large attendance on several 
free days, is a surprise, except when it is understood that there was 
one less Sunday in September, 1899, than there was in 1898, with 
which the comparison is naturallj' made. There was an increase in 
paid attendance over 1898, and a very large increase in attendance 
of school children as well as of students and of teachers appeared 
from the records of the days when an admission fee was charged. 
On other days no discrimination could be made. The following is a 
list of school classes of 30 pupils or more that visited the Museum 
during the year just closed :

Pl. XL. Metal Tray and Label Holder. 



This sketch presents a device for exhibiting lump coal, or coal in broken 
fragments, or other friable substances. The form is that of a deep tray with 
two sides divergent, cut down in front to a narrow strip, the contents giving 
support to the label. 

The tray is made of tinned iron, bound at the edges with wire and enameled 
a drab color outside and white inside.
