World's Fair Cost

Topeka (Kan.) Daily Capital

Now that the great Paris Exposition has at last been opened one is naturally curious to know how the financial end of such an immense exhibition is managed. White it is one thing to be able to persuade all the nations of the world to contribute to the artistic success of such an enterprise, it is quite another matter so to arrange the outlays and expenditures as to leave a balance on the right side of the book when the turn-stile has at last retired from business.

At the present moment the reports from Paris are roseate enough to lead one to imagine that there can be nothing but profit in the affair, but those who are acquainted with the nature of the expenditure do not hesitate to say that the managers of the big show will find it no easy matter to make both ends meet.
