shot downward to the ground floor. Its

age can be made at this time, but Thomas
Stafford, superintendent of masonry,
thinks the loss will be about $8,000. The
building is being erected by John H.
Harte, on whom the loe will fall.
. Masons Have arrow Karaite.

The damage done amounts to the break
ing In two of part of the eight-ton atone
column and the wrecking of considerable
temporary flooring. A "cap' made of
stone and weighing avout two tons was
knocked off the northwest corner of the
west entrance by the swinging boom and
waa demolished. In falling the boom
smashed against the side of the building
and shattered several pieces of stone til
ing which had already been placed.

The old rates were In effect as long aa

To those shoppers who have not already
finished their Christmas shopping for this year,
we want to say that shopping during the early
hours of the day has many advantages. There is
less crowding on both the street cars and in the
stores, and both you and the sales people are
not as tired as later in the day. And when
shopping in the afternoon, we urge you to
start for home before 5 o'clock, if possible,
making it possible for those compelled to re
main down town later to find room in the cars.
