Exposition Closed Today and Tomorrow

     Out of respect for the memory of the martyred President the Pan-American Exposition is closed today and will remain so until Monday. The directors met at a late hour last night and decided to close the gates today and tomorrow. The sad death of the President cast gloom upon the foreign peoples at the Exposition and they join with the people of the nation in universal mourning. All festivities and celebrations have been accordingly postponed.
