first naned was caught and so badlv
crushed that he died about 20 min
utes a'tcr the accident occurred.
The pit into which the men were pre
cipitatid contained about seven feet
ot water, which in a measure ac
counts for the escape of the other

The handsome mansion that Mor
ris Bosenfiehl is having built for
himself on Nineteenth street is near-
iug completion aud it is now thought
will be ready for occupancy about
the middle of September. The beau
tiful structure, which will undoubt
edly be the most elaborately fin
ished in the three cities, is all that
could be wished for in the way of a
home. Not alone has ery modern
convenience and comfort been Snip-
plied, but the interior finishings are
the acme of perfection from an artis
tic standpoint. i'J'he entire building
is built of pressed brick trimmed in
red sandstone from plans drawn by
Alexander, the well known architect
of Lafayette, Ind. In architectural
beauty it is pleasing to the eve and
the spacious grounds about it when
completed will make its appearance
even more heautitul.
Of Immense I'roporl ions.
The house contains in all 35 rooms,
not including closets, etc., all of
which are finished in keeping with
its magnificent proportions. In the
finishing of the house, 12 different
kinds of wood have been used, name
ly: White and red oak, white and
yellow birch, cypress, sycamore.
yellow gum, white holly, birds-eve
maple, butternut and white and
Georgia pine. On the first tloor are
parlor, library and den, reception

breakfast room, kitchen, butler's
pantry, refrigerator and closets. On
the second Hour are seven rooms and
two bath rooms, the third floor being
taken up by a spacious dancing hall
and sitting rooms. . In the basement
is the billiard hall elaborately fin
ished, wine room, bath rooms, laun
dry, closets, etc. The library is fin
ished in birch, and will be elaborate
in the extreme. The dining room
and breakfast room are both being
finished in red oak. while the other
woods are utilized in the different
rooms both upstairs and down. The
billiard hall and other rooms in the
basement are finished in spruce.
tlie bath rooms on the upper tloor

The kitchen is also elaborately a-

being of the most modern design.
The Darn is in Keeping.
The barn which occupies a site just
east ot the mansion, is a beautiful
thing in itself. Built to correspond
with the residence it is ot the same
material ornamented with a slate
roof and is in keeping with it in
every way. On the ground tloor
the carriage repository ana some
finished rooms beside the stables.
while on the second floor is some
finely finished coachman's ouartcrs

Around the house and barns hand
some walks and drives have been laid
out which will give the whole a mag

When one realizes that 1.1(): was
spent in odds and ends iu hardware
about the house the expense of build

About s.ini(i would strike near the

the figure on the barn alone. Al
though the work is not yet completed
it is said that the house and barn
will foot up to a total of sSD.tMii) and
that add the cost of furnish
