UNCLE SAM'S MONEY FACTORY IS WONDERFUL
Latest Stamp-Making Machine.
Standing on a site that alone wonld ] dows form by far a greater part of the
it one of the world's superb
factories, even if
it did not quite
equal the crite
rion in other re
spects, the new
bureau of engrav
ing and printing
building i B a
structure so care
fully planned to
meet the exigen
cies of the future
and facilitate the
work and comfort
of its employes,
that it may be re
garded as the last
word in factory construction.
Potomac park, vying in beauty and
grandeur with the Riverside driveway
ejong the Hudson in New York, the
Michigan boulevard bordering on Lake
?Michigan in Chicago, and the Champs
ide Mars and tue Longchamps along
the Seine in Paris, is the proud pos
sessor of this colossal plant, where
!for years to come the currency of Un
tele Sam will issue.
For miles in Virginia its chalky
?walls are visible. As far down the
?Potomac as Alexandria it appears to
jrival the Washington monument
The most striking feature of the
-new building is the extraordinary pre
cautions taken for the comfort of its
.employes. Most notable, probably, i3
.the promenade on the roof garden.
The roof garden, lt has been stated,
.will be the finest in the national capi
tal, not only for the commanding view
of many miles into the territory of
.the Old Dominion state that it will
-command, but also because of the re
freshing breezes that will find their
.way from the river.
Lunch periods are expected to find
the roof garden the mecca of all em
ployes. Tables and benches and chairs
.will be found in abundance beneath a
icanopy so constructed that Old Sol
.will have little or no effect on the
temperature. Ferns and palms will
?provide decorations. Elevators will
?run directly to the garden. It Is ex
pected that a view equal to that
gained from the summit of the monu
ment will be obtained from this point
In order that first aid promptly may
tbe administered to employes, who, as
?is often the case because of the high
temperature caused by gas flame used
to heat the plates, are prostrated by
heat, a special emergency hospital will
.be provided. It will contain separate
wards for men and women, and will
Tiave all Implements of surgery nec
essary for any first-class institution
of its nature. An experienced physi
cian will be la constant attendance.
The hospital Is only intended for first
aid, the employes being later removed
if It is found necessary.
The building will contain a special
refrigerating system, which will pro
duce water for drinking purposes.
The water will be cooled at a central
point, so that when it is imbibed at
bubbling fountains, lt will be at an
average temperature of 45 degrees.
These fountains will be so located
that employes will have to go a mini
mum distance to obtain the water. A
plan to have all the water distilled
was abandoned when the public health
commission decided that the liquid in
this form was unhealthful.
A plentitude of light and a constant
supply of fresh air continually will
aid the employes in their work. The
ventilation Bystem will be entirely in
dependent of the heating system. The
air in the different rooms and offices
will be changed two or three times a
,.day. This will ventilate the rooms on
? basis of about 2,000 cubic feet per
hour per employe in the most crowded
The large rooms literally will be
?wanned with daylight. Glass win
walls than the masonry. Throughout
the building are no less than 32,700
panes of glass. The majority of these
windows reach from floor to ceiling.
It is expected that artificial light will
be reduced to a minimum, and the
amount of natural light will be in
ceased to a maximum.
Another laudable feature of the new
bureau will be a lunchroom for each
division. In addition, co-operative
lunchrooms for men and women are
being arranged, each leading out on to
a shaded promenade on the roofs of
two of the wings, in order that the
employes may get light and fresh air
during the lunch hour and still be
kept within bounds.
Officials of the treasury department
in regard to the co-operative lunch
room plan figure that in a factory such
as the bureau, the health and happi
ness of the employes Is just as essen
tial as that machinery should be oiled
or kept in good repair. They say that
a man who is well fed ls in better
condition to render good service than
one who is poorly fed and perhaps in
need of nourishment. Therefore, the
co-operative lunchroom. ^
According to present plans, a com-'
pany to furnish the necessary fixtures,
kitchen utensils, heat, light and fuel
will be organized among the employes.
The company in the form of a co
operative society will assess each
member a nominal sum as a member
ship fee to create a fund necessary to
commence business, issuing a certifi
cate for the same.
The society will elect officers and a
board of governors to conduct the
business, the board to select compe
tent help to purchase the necessary
food, cook and serve lt to the em
ployes at cost-that ls, at such a fig
ure as to maintain the service on a
good business basis.
Each division will be complete m
itself. Besides the individual lunch
rooms, each section will have its own
locker room, where the employes will
be confined to the division during the
entire working day. Owing to the na
ture of the output, treasury officials
maintain that it ls absolutely neces
sary that the employes shall be re
stricted to certain portions of the
building from the time they enter In
the morning until the time they leave
in the evening, when all the securities
upon which work Is being performed
are returned to their proper places for
In every respect the structure will
be absolutely fireproof. Beams and
columns are of steel, the arches and
girders of ferro-concrete construction,
the -roof of metal, and the window
sashes and frames of Iron. Walls are
brick, faced with Bedford limestone.
Concrete ls to be used in some parts
of 'he ballding as flooring, but wood
floors will predominate. The stair
way- are specially designed to serve
as fire escapes. Those running from
each 'loor are mostly independent of
each other, thus tending to greater
safety in case of stampede or panic
"TOY LADY" IS MOURNED
Capital Children Weep for "Miss
Kate," Whose Shop Was "Tad"
Lincoln's Favorite Haunt.
HundrvJs of children with tear-wet
eyes are mourning the passing of
"Miss Kate," the toy lady, whose fa-:
neral the ither day drew them to St.
Mary's c! ?rch. Miss Kate France
was prop ri ?tor of a store known as
the "Lincoln Toyshop," because dur
ing the Civil war "Tad" Lincoln made
all his purchases there and, often
times accompanied by his father, vis
ited the place to feast his eyes on
the treasures it contained. Miss
France was sixty-three years old and
had "grown up" with the shop.
