WORLD'S FAIR NOTES.
t As a preliminary to the exhibit
of Louisiana at the World's Fair I
it is proposed to celebrate the
f contennial of the admission of
that state into the Union. The
i date is December 23, 1903. The1
celebration will be held in New
SOrleans.
The fact that all exhibit space c
is free at the World's Fair and I
that every reasonable facility will I
be offered to exhibitors to get
1 their exhibits in place at small (
1 expense is stimulating the inter- I
1 est of manufacturers in the Fair
to a marked degree.
Little trace remains at the 1
World's Fair of the recent dam
age from the storm of wind and
- rain which swept over the coun
- try. The section of the Varied
11 Industries building which was
* blown down is nearly in place
again.
