Just wh.-u caused Itttsein change of

surmised, but it is quite probable that
the Oiicntal aspect of the exposition is
what caught Jtho eye of the Itueslan
Th fame thing,' though, caught the
eye of the wily Jap some months since,
and Japan has arranged paiticiition
on a big wale. It is surmised that

therefore, reason to look for an attract
