Today’s puzzle features an image of the “Soils and Fertilizers” exhibit case by the United States Department of Agriculture at the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915. The exposition was intended to illustrate the function and administrative faculty of the U.S. Government and to demonstrate the nature and growth of its institutions, their adaptation to the wants of the people, and the progress of the nation in the arts of peace and war.
