ST. LOUIS NOT ADVERTISED.
Criticism of the Fair Management In
New York, July 21. Those who
predicted that thore would be a mark
ed decrease In the ocean travel to
Europe this summer and a large In
crease In tho arrivals from Europe on
nccount of tho St. Louis exposition,
have evidently made a serious mis
take In their calculations.
The fact Is that the number of
American tourists going to Europe
this year is exceptionally largo, whllo
the steamers from Europe by no
means carry as many visitors bound
for St. Louis as was expected. Con
sidering tho fact that the St. Louis
exposition is very little tallied of In
tho East and not much more In other
parts of the country makes It appear
loss surprising that tho European
countries show so little enthusiasm
over the St. Louis fair.
Many reasons have been given for
this lack or Interest and the princi
pal one seems to be that the manage
ment of tho exposition made the great
mistako of not advertising the fair In
the proper way.
The manngemeut seemed to bo un
der tho impression that an undertak
ing like a world's fair did not require
advertising, but could depend upon
Its merits. That was a serious mis
take and It Is quite probable that
somebody will havo to pay for that
mistake of Judgm.ent.

Around Helix the amount of wheat

"Tho early reports of tho amount of

reports to the effect that but llttlo If
