There were days when no one must gohunting or fishing, special days for eatingbeef or drinking wine, days when it wasunlucky to travel, and one was marked,Do nothing at all to-day! THE INTERNATIONAL FEDERA-TION OF EXPOSITIONS A CONGRESS of a diplomatic char-acter representing no less thantwenty-six governments was held onOctober 7th, at Berlin. It was organizedby the International Federation of Exposi-tion Committees, and the congress was oc-cupied with establishing a basis for holdingexpositions in various countries, and it alsotook measures to draw up rules for theawarding of prizes on such occasions.
