EUILD BETTER HOUSES.
f-H,oi;o or I iiem i,o I p in MnnKe livery
It requires 300,000 new houses to
3Upply tho natural Increase of popu
lation In this country and S4.000 more
to take tho places of thoso that burr,
down every year. "What Is tho sense
cf so building all of these that they
can be burned down?
This thought has Impelled Collier's
to editorially remark that:
A saving for the people of man'
millions will be mado when they have
come to realize tho advantages of
fireproof construction. Not many peo
ple realize that the ash-heap of 1000
means an actual dead loss of $230,
000,000, which Is nearly $f,O,0"O,0OO
morn than the highest previous re
cord, Rome may remark that Insur
ance largely covers this terrific loss,
but the Insurance premiums also
come from the people, and for every
dollar paid out by tho companies
something llko threo dollars have
been taken in. The tendency so far
has been to Improve flre-flghtlng
mothods and appliances, and to-day
we havo fire departments that are
uneqtialed in efficiency and alacrity.
In constructing largo buildings, es
pecially commercial ones, men have
grown wlso enough to uso f (reproof
ing methods In the structural parts,
md as little combustible materials In
others as is compatible with proper
economy. Where they have not sense
enough to do so voluntarily, building
laws generally compel them. It Is in
tho construction of houses, vvheio
people do more or less what thoy
please, that wood is still used more
than far-sighted Judgment would Jus
tify. There was a tlmo when such
construction was made Inevitable by
economy, but in tho last twenty years
timber has gone up over ono hundred
por cent, while tho prices nf brick
and tile and coment, by reason of Im
proved methods of manufacture, have
been cheapened so much that, all
things considered durability, repairs,
warmth In winter and coolness lu
summer, Insurance, freedom from
vermin a fireproof houso means a
better investment ultimately than a
wooden one. There aro eaies where
even tho first cost of a fireproof
house Is less than it would havo been
had It been built of wood, As a gener
al proposition the country over the
additional cost if first-class brick
and tile construction Is anywhere
from five to ten per rent, more than
for wood, in tho ordinary dwelling
there are floor Joists, rrossbridglng,
a roug.i floor, paper, or other dead
ening material, and a finished floor
all combustible, the wholo costing
something lika twenty-five cents a
square foot, Including the plaster on
tho celling below. In fireproof con
struction, using hollow tile In mono
lithic wide spans, covered with an as
bestollthtc or other Incombustible
Plastic flooring, end the under side
plastered, there Is an expenditure of
from twenty-alx to twenty-eight
cents. Is not the use of wood In pri
vate dwellings a habit which ought
rapidly to disappear?
