International Expositions are independent kingdoms in their corporate relation with other countries of the world. They are phantom kingdoms wherein the people do everything but sleep. They germinate and grow with phenomenal energy. Their existence is established without conquest and their magic growth is similar to the mushroom and the moon-flower they vanish like setting suns in their own radiance. Thousands of neophytes of every race creed and color come with willing hearts and hands to do homage and bear manna to nourish the sinews of a phantom kingdom.
