Its Geographical Position and Many Other Considerations Mark It aa Most Suitable Bpot for Dedi cation of Great Work. Public sentiment has decided that tbe completion of the Panama Canal In 1915 shall be celebrated with a great International Exposition In which all the nations of the world may participate; and the question of where this Exposition is to be held will be settled by Congress at lt» ap proaching session. New Orleans and San Francisco are contesting for the honor of hold ing this Exposition, and both cities have guaranteed immense sums of money as an evidence of their ability to finance so great an enterprise. An Exposition worthy of the term “World’s Fair,” such as New Orleans proposes to build, will be a great ed ucational movement. Its success as such, however, will depend entirely upon the percentage of our popula tion who can secure Its educational advantages, this In turn, depends up on its location, as the time in travel ing to and from the Exposition, and the cost in railroad and .Pullman fares, are the most Important' factors. Considering these matters, New* Orleans’ claims to being the ‘‘Logi cal Point" for this Panama Exposi tion, seem to be fully substantiated by the following facts: New Orleans Is 500 miles from the center of population In the United States. San Francisco Is 2,50® miles distant therefrom. Within a radius of 500 miles from New Orleans there are 17,500.000 people. Within the same radius from San Francisco there are only 2,000,000. Within a radius of 1,000 miles from New Orleans, there are 65,000,000. Within the same radius from San Francisco there are only 6,000,000. At an average of 900 miles from New Orleans, there are 70 of our principal cities with a combined population of 20,000,000. Averaging 900 miles from San Francisco there are only 8 large cities, with a com bined population of Just 1,000,000. The average distance of all these dtles to New Orleans Is 792 miles,— to San Francisco 2,407 miles. Over 76 per cent, of tho people of tho United States could go to an Exposition there at an average ex pense for railroad fare of $12.50, as against an average of $37.50 to the Pacific Coast; and for several mil lions of our people, the Pnllman fare and Dining Car expenses alone, for a trip to San Francisco, would amount to more than all their trans portation expenses for a trip to New Orleans. This Is an Important public ques tion to be settled by Congress at the session which convenes in December. Many of our readers will wish to visit this World's Panama Exposi tion, and if held In New Orleans %■ great many more could spare the time and money for the trip than could go to San Francisco. There fore, we urge our readers to write to* the two senators from this State and the congressman from this district, requesting them to support New Or isons in the contest Editorial Favor. “A month ago you rejected a story of mine.” "I remember.

I was so sick and had be come so nervous that I positively lost all hope. ‘‘l had seen the advertisement of the Cutlcura Remedies a great many times, but could not make up my mind to buy them, for 1 had already used so many medicines. Finally I did decide to use the Cutlcura Remedies and I tell you that I was never so pleased as when I noticed that, after having used two seta of Cutlcura Soap, Cutlcura Ointment and Cutlcura Pills, the en tire inflammation had gone. I was completely cured. I should be only too glad If people with similar disease would come to me and find out the truth. I would only recommend them to use Cutlcura.
