It Will Be Thirty Stories High and
Will Cost $3,250,000 To Be Lo
cated on lower Broadway at
Cortlandt Street.
Giant among office buildings of the
world, the City Investing Building
company will tower above the great
structures of lower Broadway, New
York city. This latest product of the
architect and builder's art is to be
30 stories high in its central part and
25 stories throughout the remainder. -
It will cover a ground area of 27,

landt street, surrounding the old Ben
edict building. The western part will
cover the site of the Coal and Iron
Exchange, at Cortlandt and Church
streets, with a frontage in Cortlandt
street of 209 feet and of 103 feet in
Church street. The Broadway en
trance will be in Nos. 1C5 and 1C7,
and a main corridor 3S feet wide will
run through to Church street, a dis
tance of 315 feet.
The cost of this pile will be more
than $3,250,000. In line with the
policy of Robert E. Dowling. president
of the City Investing company, to give
to tenants quick and abundant trans
portation facilities, the building will
have 21 elevators.
It is probable that the building will
have an entrance to the McAdoo tun
nel, which will come up to Church
street, under Cortlandt street, and
will turn north under the south side
of that thoroughfare. This has not
yet been decided upon.
In style of architecture the building
will be what is technically known as
free Italian. The adoption of this
type of architecture has given the
architect, Francis H. Kimball, an op
portunity to produce a structure

It Was in Use in Lynn,
setts, from 1732 to
A little lacquered, wooden box, now
in the possession of the Lynn His
torical society, and labeled simply
"Old Jury Box." could, had it a
tongue, tell a long and most interest
ing sztory of the growth of the town
and city of Lynn during the past 200
The box Itself is like most other
boxes made in the early part of the
eighteenth century, dovetailed at the
corners and glued together. It is not
a large box, yet the names of many
of Lynn's best citizens have been
drawn from it for service on a jury
sitting in judgment on their fellow
men. On the bottom of the box are the
figures "1732." and it Is thought that
this is the date the box was made.
By whom it was constructed nobody
seems to know, and nothing can be
found in the old town records regard
ing its use. However, it is known
that it was used nearly 200 years,
and that it is probably the oldest box
in Lynn to-day.
From the time it was constructed
until 1903 it was in constant use.
But as the years rolled by and the
town grew into a city, and a small
city into one of great proportions, the
box proved too small to hold the
names of the jurors.
In 1903 City Clerk Joseph W. Att
will ordered a new jury box to be
made. This is of oak and much larger
than the old box. Soon after the com
pletion of the new box the old box
was presented to the Lynn Historical
society, and at present rests in a large
wall cabinet.
The box has a bail of hand-wroughl
iron and an old-fashioned lock and
hinges of the same material. A little
slot in the top admits of dropping the
names into the box. The inside is lefl
in the natural wood, but the outside is
lacquered, and is about the color oi
old mahogany.
The Lumber Industry of America as
Seen by an English
America is so rich in timber she
possesses 300 species of trees of which
the smallest grows as high as 3(
feet and has such magnificent rivers
that the timber trade is carried out
on a scale which wt in our little coun
try can scarcely imagine, says the
London Sphere. Many of these
rafts float of their own accord
while others are hauled by curious
vessels known as "alligators." Thej
' are specially used on the Canadian
lakes and rivers and have been de
1 scribed as a cross between a boat ano
a grasshopper, for they can navigate
a dry and dusty road or make tlicii
! way through a swamp or over a wind
j fall. The Lumber Jack is said to be
losing some of his old picturesqueness
but he retains enough individuality
to mark him off from other classes oi
workers. He is simple and natural
generous and fearless, manly and in
dependent. The picture shown in this
column illustrate the method of lum
bering in western Washington. When
the logs are cut they are either skid
ded down to the rivers or are floated
thither and bound together with enor
mous chains. In many cases they are
built into a sort of floating cage which
is released from beneath them when
the pile is completed. It is no uncom
mon sight to see a raft containing logs
worth $1,000,000.

Yew Electric Process by Which Pa
per Hay Be Coated with
A new electric process for covering
paper with a metallic surface is given
by 'Paper Palp. It consists in placing
the bath in a porcelain tank in which
are Immersed two metal plate3. One
of the plates is formed of the metal
which is used to cover the paper. A
rather weak current is used for the
bath. A thin layer of metal Is depos
ited on the second plate, as is usual
In the galvanoplastic process. When
the deposit has reached a thickness
of about 1-250 inch, the plate is placed
against a sheet of paper which Is
previously coated with the proper kind
of glue. After dying, the metallic
layer adheres to the paper so strong
ly that it remains upon the latter
when it is palled off the metal plate.
A variation of the process consists In
ornamenting the foundation plate
with any kind of designs or letters,
and these are reproduced on the me
tallic deposit The solutions which
are recommended in the above process
are as follows: For silver paper, a
bath is made of cyanide of silver 210
parts, cyanide of potassium 13 parts,
water 9S0 parts. For gold paper,
cyanide of gold 4 parts, cyanide of
potassium 9 parts, water 900 parts.
For copper, sulphate of copper 18

How the Photograph of the Bow Wave
of a Big Man of War Is Taken
and Why.
The accompanying photographic re
oroduction taken from Marine Erigln
:ering, shows a man in the act of tak
ng a photograph of the bow-wave of
he battleship Ohio, of the Asiatic
quadron, during her regular quarter
y speed trial. The daring photog
apher. with his camera, is suspended
rom the starboard anchor crane of the
attleship. The photograph is not
aken as a mere curiosity, but is a reg-
ular feature of the trial, the shape of
the bow-wave being an important evi
dence of the effectiveness of the ves
sel's lines. Several of these photo
graphs were taken on the trial, of
which the paper quoted above says in
This was the regular qunrterly trial
called for by the navy regulations, but was
at the same time a race in which the battle
ships Wisconsin and Oregon were also in
volved. The Ohio is said to have been IS
miles ahead of the Wisconsin at the finish,
while the Oregon was out of sight in the
rear. The Pocahontas coal used was re
ported to be of good quality, but as a mat
ter of fact it was mostly slack, due to a low
supply. The blowers were run simply for
ventilating purposes, and at a very low rate
of revolution. It is thought that had the
coal been really of first quality, and tho
blowers run to their full capacity, the re
sult would have exceeded in speed that ob
tained upon the builders trial trip, namely,
17.i3 knots. The mean depth of water
varied from 15 to 38 fathoms.
Autos Take Leather.
Summer fads, the Lynn Item de
clares, consume leather. The automo
bile industry requires much fine
stock. It is said that 20.000 cars are
being made, or have been made, for
the coming season, and that each car
will require about 80 feet of leather
for its upholstery. So in all, these
cars will use up 2.400.000 feet of leath
er. Besides, those who follow the
sport will require much leather for
caps, coats, gloves, leggings and other
paraphernalia. The automobile stiff
ens prices of leather sharply. The
man who wants a new car, or a' new
coat, doesn't stop to bother about 25
cents or 50 cents on the price, as do
thousands of people over the price of
a pair of shoes.
Wrought Iron for Pipes.
About 1890 several cast-iron con
duits at Berlin, from 3.5 to 10 centi
meters in diameter, were ruptured,
which led the authorities to replace
the cast-iron pipes with those of
wrought iron, covered with the fol
lowing composition for protection:
Sixty-five kilogrammes of tar, 3 kilo
grammes of rosin. 15 'liters of sand.
7 liters of loamy clay and 4 liters of
powdered lime. A coating of this mix
ture. 3 or 4 millimeters thick, was
applied. In more than a dozen years
of service these pipes have been pre
served from rust and have undergone
no change. Rev. des Eclairages.

Great Steel Tower- Which Is
Erected in Germany for Use at
Wireless Telegraphy.
A wireless telegraph station whose
action is expected to cover the en
tire European continent is being
erected by the German government on
the most northwestern point of the
country, at Norddeich, in Frlsia. Its
great steel tower, 213 feet high. will,
send out electric waves that can be
detected by receivers located anywhere
within a radius of at .least 1,000 miles;
and in all probability it will be able
to receive and transmit over still
greater distances. This is compared
by electricity to the Tower of Babel.
It says in an editorial article:
"The ancient Chaldeans, to whom
philologists are apt to give the palm
for the legend of the Tower of Babel,
could never, in their wildest flights of
imagination, have comprehended what
we now all regard as a prosaic fact,
the existence of a steel tower sending
and receiving all languages through
invisible space. ... As regards
the simile that such an undertaking
will be like the Tower of Babel, the
fact that it will receive and transmit
messages from Germany, Switzerland,
France, Great Britain. Denmark. Italy.
Sweden. Norway, Spain, the Balkan
Peninsula and Russia, is sufficient evi
dence on that score. It is believed
that operation will be extended as far
as Saragossa, Naples and Cetinje to
the south; as far as St Petersburg in
the east; in the north it will be a
voice from the silence to the people
of Drontheim and Narvik; and to the
east German vessels homeward bound
can send their tidings to Norddeich
while still on the Atlantic far beyond
Land's End. The proposal made in
the beginning to erect these epoch
making towers on the Island of Bor-
kum was dismissed, and a choice
made of the seaport Norddeich of the
Frisian islands instead. This town
is the railway terminus of the Prus
sian system and better adapted
through its general accessibility to the
work in prospect"
The entire plant, we are told, will
be completed by November. The
foundations have already been laid
and the iron superstructure is beta?
put up as rapidly as possible. At thi
base of the towers will live the offi
cials and the employes, who will oper
ate the telegraph probably enough to
form a considerable community. The
writer concludes:
"The projection of this scheme and
its crystallization means the duplica
tion of the same idea by the various
governments with whom It will keep
in touch.
"Thus the strange picture Is pre
sented of Germany undertaking a
titanic task yet a task which in spite
of its enormousnes3 is considered a
necessary consequence of the changed
conditions in the transmission of in
telligence manifested in the last ten
years. National wireless stations ara
the correct idea, as far as methods
of international communication are
deemed desirable. The only inquiry
that seems natural under the circum
stances is that relative to the use of
high mountains. Along the Atlantic
coast we find the great Appalachian
range, with its hoary peaks. For gov
ernment purposes, secret or otherwise,
these high mountains are the one great
means of meeting the difficulties of
sympathetic or selective signaling. All
nations should be thus equipped, If for
no other reason, at least for the sake
of being able to feel independent of
the submarine cable, which any sudden
cataclysm at the bottom of the sea
may disrupt and destroy."

As a hansom cab stopped at the gate
way in a " suburban town not far

the hansom cab there sedately stepped
a tall, grave-faced young man. He

turned toward the gateway he met an

briskly from the trolley car ere it
fully stopped. The - second young
man's coat was a sack, worn with a
careless air; his soft felt hat would
have been the better for a brushing,

of the first young man's shining silk.

the trolley passenger, and the hypo

And the two young men stood stock
still for a moment or two. in the
ardent sunshine of the spring after
noon, staring ruefully, blankly, one at
the other.
"Look here, Digby." said Carson,
with the stock broker's energy. "Let's

with a livelier air than he had hither
to shown: "We appear to be getting

English and American Firms Taken
by a Band of Shrewd
The fact that, one of them is still
born every minute has just been forci
bly illustrated in the case of Ameri
can and English firms dealing with a
band of swindlers recently operating
from Smyrna. The matter, says the
Washington Star, has been brought
to the attention of the state depart
ment only after swindles amounting
to something over 950.000 had been
worked on English firms, while the
amount taken out of America has not
yet been computed.
The operation of the swindlers was
simple and effective. They advertised
and sent out hundreds of circular let
ters to importing houses both here
and in Europe, offering various mer
chandise, oils, hides, wool and dried
fruits at much less than the market
Many of the Importing firms here
and abroad bit at the bait and sent
orders, joining bank credits for as
much as 90 per cent of the value of
the goods. The goods were shipped in
due course and the money collected,
but when they arrived the consign
ments were found to be totally differ
ent from what had been ordered. The
finest woolen fleece would prove to be
filthy woolen rags, "choice Smyrna
figs" would be the last refuse of the
packing houses, and so on. The mat
ter was placed in the hands of the
local consuls, and on their complaint
some of the swindlers were arrested,
while the others fled. But the fraud
has adversely affected the credit of
many reputable houses in the Levant
