Maclay said they are more than pleased
with the results and are fully convinced
now that it is the correct method of doing
business, being In the interest of both
the merchant and his customers. Belling

goods at the lowest possible margin and
the buyer receives a decided benefit in
the transaction. Murphy, Maclay & Co.

of last year and it is needless to say they
see no possible objection to the new sys

THE HEW BACH-CORY BLOCKS
A Handsome Pressed Brick and Stone
Building Nearly Ready for
THE NEW HOME OF THE RAINBOW CLUB
The Cascade Steam Laundry Start Up
Their New Machinery To
The Finest Laundry West of St. Paul
and the Second of Its Kind
It is with commendable pride that a
habitant of Great Falls points tothe new
and imposing block of Bach, Cory & Co.
It impresses one with a feeling of ms
siveness and stability characteristic of
the sterling qualities that have succeeded
in building upthis monumentof business
energy and pluck. A Taznuua repre
sentative made a hasty inspection
of the building yesterday and found
painters and carpenters busy as bees put
ting on the finishing touches. The main
stairway and elevator are not yet put In,
but with the present force it will not take
many days to complete it. The cage for
the elevator is here and all the other ap
pliances for it are on hand ready to be
put in position. The elevator will be
worked by means of hydraulic water
pressure,which is the safest and most ex
peditious means of communication. Be
sides the passenger elevator there is one
for freight which runs only to the store
room of the company on the second floor,
In the basement are located the boilers
for steam-heating and also an immense
storeroom for goods, etc.
On the first floor and fronting on Cen
tral avenue will be the immense store of
the firm, the main room being 80x98 feet,
The Northwestern National bank will
also be on this floor, occupying the cor
ner of the building on Central avenue
and Park drive. On the second floor are
eleven large rooms cut up into suites and
suitable for office purposes. A large
store room for Bach, Cory & Co., Is alsl
here, and takes up about half the space
on the floor.
On the third floor are sixte-u rooms
arranged so that they may be used for
offices or as bedrooms. They are large, t
airy, have goid ventilation and plenty of
The fourth floor is almost taken up by
the Rainbow club and has been especially
0 laid out and planied for their conven
ience and comfort. Their apartments
are not yet finished, but when completed
will be marvels of ease and luxurious
nose. They have an assembly room, large
d cafe, billiard room, parlor, committee
g room, kitchen, etc., in all, seven rooms.
These are fitted up with gas and electric
e ity, electric bells, and all the modern
conveniences. The rooms are finished in
n heavy oak, oil polished and have a sub
I stancial appearance. When furnished
t tse club will have a home second to none

y Each floor is provided with a fire-plug
e and seventy-five feet of hose to be used
in case of fire. On the different floors are
o located sinks, closets, etc., and right here
b we must express our surprise and admara
t tion at the thoroughness of the plumb
ing work. We doubt if there is another
building in Great Falls which can equal
f it in sanitary conditions. W. G. towen

o- portunity to give him this just mead of

r building, and 14ubottom & Gilchrist are

bard wood oil polished, and in a few days
d will amply repay a visitof inspection.
THE CASCADE STEAM LAUNDRiY.
n The sest Equipped Lauadry West of St.
A model institution and the second of
its kind in existence, the other being the
IIenmepin laundry of Minneapolis, is the
sCacade steam, or, more properly speak
a ing, the Cascade Electric Laur.dry. In
order to keep up with its growing busi
ness the proprietors, Messrs. Jensen &
Johnson, have been obliged to add an ad
ditional building of 22x100 feet to keep
n up with the march of progress made by
our city within the last twelve months.
New boilers, new engines, new appli
ances have necessarily followed until
m now Great Fails can boast of the econd
Id electric laundry in existence. The elec- I
tricity is generated on the premises. In
at order to do so it became necessary to put
,d in new boilers and a 28 horse automatic
ie engine. This furnishes the motive power
e- for the machinery and also for a 140
k light dynamo of 16-candle power. This
is dynamo supplies the electricity for light
ing the building and for heating the ma
chinery used for Ironing purposes. It is
rd the electric heating appliances that we
on especially desire to call the attention of
as our readers. This is the latest known
le application of electricity to laborlacving
ed devices. There are two shirt bosom
be Ironers, one shirt-body Ironer, and
sk eight sad-irons heated by this
process. Mr. Thiel the electrician a ho is
putting in the works after seeing how per
fectly the sad-Irons worked remarked to a
TRIBUNE representative that he would
certainly put in one for his own wife. All
the ironer has to do is to turn the switch
and in three minutes the iron is ready to
be used and the beauty of it is the top
hart never got, hot. The wire conduct
int the electricity to the Iron is kept out
of the way by means of a steel spring
which allows perfect freedom in the use
of it. This ought to be seen by every
good house wife to be appreciated.
But to return to the new building. In
The basement are located the boiler and
engine, the electric plant, two Cambridge
washers,twocontrifugal eztractors,a shirt
starcher, a collar and cuff starcher, a big
400 gallon hot water tank, a 10-rack dry
room and the marking department.
On the first floor is the largest make of
mangle which is used for ironing sheets,
pillow cases, table linens etc., two bozom
irmners, the eight sad irons are on this
floor, and the two shirt ironers, beside an
The second floor is fitted up for room
The new machinery works to perfec
tion and will be put into active operation
tomorrow. The Cascade laundry fur
nishes employment to between 16 and 17
