The Chicago Exhibition Chicago's failings have had abundant publicity, but

the true spirit of the great city is better expressed in the "Century of Progress Exposition "which was opened last Saturday. Like the "World's Columbian Exposition" of 1893, it was planned on a generous scale, and the trade depression which began about the time when the work was started has not been allowed to curtail the ambitious programme, involving an expenditure of £10,000,000. It may be hoped that, before the exhibition closes, reviv- ing prosperity in America will bring it as definite a success as the "World's Fair" had forty years ago. The well- known "Royal Scot" express is a prominent feature of the British section.
