Of course the Eiffel tower is the most con - spicnous feature of the exposition. The platform, which rests on the base, will be used as a cafe, and there will also be a print ing office and a number of small stores here. It will cost one dollar to make the ascent to this platform and five dollars to go to the top of the tower, one thousand feet in the air. The cost of the whole structure is over a million dollars, and at the close of the exposition exposition it will become the property of the French Government, who will keep it open the year round for the benefit of those who wish to obtain the matchless view of Paris and the surrounding country which it affords. Already Already tho French people are beginning to talk about the uses to which this tower could be put in case of war, but it is hardly probable probable that any one would care to venture np the elevators if the German shells were flying about.
