Several of England’s colonies have erected buildings-of their own. Notable among these is Canada. The Canadian pavilion covers nearly 6,000 feet and cost about $30,000. It is two stories high, and has a beautiful site facing the Take. It is almost entirely devoted to offices and to rooms for public comfort, there being but few exhibits in the building. In order to show the different woods indigenous to Canada, the interior walls, ceilings and floors of the pavilion are finished in wood highly polished, showing the natural grain. Each province furnished the wood required to finish the rooms to be occupied by its commissioners.
