Comparing the Columbian and Louis

be noticed. A to th. main exposition
building they bear a striking likeness
in architectural-design to-those-of th
"White City" of '91 and of cour.e art
constructed of the sama class of ma
terial. In the matter of guarda, at Chi

of admlsilon to the grounds. Th Pike
attractions vary from II cents to $1,
and ona can apend much or little in th
way of sou venire. Of course many peo
ple who go to th fair, either through
