1 New Method Hastens Work of
' Foundation Digging'.
1 A new method of accelerating founda
' tlon digging for a large office building Is
being demonstrated dally at Chestnut and
Juniper streets. Thousands of pedestrians
stop every day to watch a heavy dump
wigon lifted easily from the street by a
crane, swung over the yawning excava
' tlon made for foundations and gently low
ered to the bottom.
Hy this method It Is necessary to load
but once. Under the old system laborers
tilled a big steel bucket at the bottom of
the excavation. This was swung up and
dumped Into the wagon. A large amount
of dirt was spilled anil another force of
mon had to be employed to handle the
1 huckft at th. street. Ilv tho new method
the wagons are nevtr delayed
BENJAMIN FRANKLIN'S FACE
IN BRONZE NEEDS CLEANING
Effigy in Front of Postofflce Rudely
Treated by Time and Weather.
Patriots who promenade Chestnut
street In the vicinity of the Postofflce are
becoming annoyed by tho condition of -the
statue of Benjamin Franklin, especially
the face, which is dirty. Also there Is ji
white line extending from his chin to his
waistcoat, as though ho had ben eating
gruel In a hurry and without a napkin.
When the statue was placed on Its
pedestal In front of the Federal Building
the face bore a nice coat of paint. Wind
and rain are no respecters of patriots'
statues, however, and acted toward
Franklin as they habitually do with a
fence or a barn.
Some Irreverent comments on the con
dition of the statue are heard from the
passersby. Others, more patriotic, fall to
see anything funny about It and feel that
something should bo done to restore tho
benign appearance of the face.
