There are two thing toward which we
Americans seem to aspire, one is to ft as
high In the eir as possible and the other to
cover the around when traveling; as fast as
posalhle. At present these tendencies can
not be consistently related since one can
not go up hill as fast as on the level, but

high hill or bluff with a level plateau at
the top and some easy means of ascending
Is Ideal In every respect Besides the pleas

this description gives one a feeling of In
dependence. Without a doubt the most

Unusual dullness obtained throughout

two lota are between Twenty-fifth and

both of them covering a quarter of a block.

the American Contractor, New York, show
an aggregate decline In building operations
