The National Fireproflng Company
has secured the contract for the flreproof
Ing work in the new building for the
Bureau of Engraving and Printing.
The December number of Building Prog
ress, the magazine published by the Na
tional Flreprooflng Company, Is espe
cially attracUve in design and contents
The coer design is better than many of
the regular monthly magazines can boast
It depicts a Christmas night scene and
the spectre of a magnificent Gothic cath
edral rising over a sleeping city toward
a starry sky. The color scheme of the
picture Is especially noteworthy.
A feature of the contents is a reproduc
tion In colors of a drawing of the Blen
helm Hotel at Atlantic City by Jules
Guerin. The building Is given as an ex
ample of hollow tile wall construction.
The chief contribution Is an Interesting
n.tlAla sin uT,n limit r fetch VtlllMInf"

large industrial corporation in the country.
LOCAL FIRM WINS.
Hugh Reilly Company to Furnish
Paint for Wireless Towers.
The Hugh Reilly Company has ob
tained the contract for all the paint
to be used on the wireless towers at
Arlington Owing to the fact- that a
special paint had to be manufactured for
these towers to meet the government
requirements, it is regarded as notable
that this local firm won the business in
competition with seeral of the leading
manufacturers. These structures are
larger than an thing of their Kind in the
world and will outtop the Washington
Monument in height b HO feet
The quantity of paint required is far
In excess of any one order placed for
a particular structure or building in this
city, and this makes the success of the
local bidder all the more gratifying
