A Boston preacher chose a queer

said regarding his trip: "The exhibit

cf any country in regard to floor space,
with the exception of France. At the
last exposition we had 113,000 square
feet, .'.nd this lime 2G3.000 square feet
are aireadj assured. Through the ap
propriation of $630,000 by congress, a
beautiful building will be erected.
My special mission to Tarisattiis time
was to ascertain the feeling between
the French and the Americans, and I
em sure what little hard feeling there
was has entirely disappeared. I went
to hotels, cafes, business houses, and
in all I was treated not only courteous

and the same good feeling was ap
