Advantage of Concrete Buildings.
It has been shown in practice that
concrete buildings require less arti
ficial Hgnt than those of slow burning
mill construction. This Is owing to
the reflection of light from tho white
walls and celllng3 and cplumns and
also to the fact that It Is possible to
supply buildings of this character with
greater window area.

months ago, tolls this: "In connec

that ho was tho cause of most of tho

"A morning or so afterward, on
entering my office rather late, I was.
informed by one of my Persian as
sistants that 'tho chief baker had
