Block Purchased by Lu Lus.
Structure Will Cost More
Than $1,000,000
W. Freeland Kendrlck, acting for Lu I,u
Temple, Ancient Arabic Order Nobles of
the Mystic Shrine, this morning made set
tlement for the purchase of the entire block
of ground extending from Twenty-second
to Twenty-third streets, Spring Garden
street to Pennsylvania aenue, right on the
Mne of the Farkway. Upon the plot Is to
he erected the largest Temple of the Mystic
Shrine In the world at a cost of more than
11.000,000.
Directly opposite the site to the west
trill he the new Municipal Art Gallery, to
cost upward of (4,000,000, and to the east
will be located the proposed Convention
Hall. Public Library and other municipal
fculldlncs. As the new Shrine Temple will
be the first private enterprise to take cog
nizance of the Importance of the Parkway,
tho trustees, who will be In charge of the
erection of the new Temple, have already
adopted tentative plans for the magnificent
dlflce.
It Is estimated that the cost of the new
TAX Lu Temple, exclusive of the value of
, the ground, will be In excess of (1,000,000.
tjttst how soon ground may be broken for
the new building rests largely with the
Government, for a request has been made to
defer as much structural work at the prea
nt time as possible, as the Government
demands for material and labor are very
lieavy by reason of the war.
The tentative plans provide for a principal
auditorium for meeting purposes to accom
modate comfortably not less than 6000 per
sons. In the event that the proposed city
convention hall Is not built by the time the
new temple Is completed, this auditorium
will In Itself be large enough to accom
modate the largest convention gathering
likely to come to Philadelphia for some
years to come.
Immediately underneath this auditorium,
tn which Is to be built one of the largest
rgans In Philadelphia, will be the largest
ballroom floor In this city, which may also
be utilized for banquet purposes. The seat
ing capacity of this floor, with banquet
tables laid out, will be approximately 3000.
Underneath the ballroom are to be nu
merous meeting rooms to be used by the
Lu Lu Band, the mounted guard and patrol
connected with Lu Lu Temple: locker and
club rooms and the largest swimming pool in
the city.
This main building Is to occupy the ma
jor portion of the large lot, but at one ot
the corners Is to be erevted a separate sec
tion of the building, to be equipped with club
features and sleeping rooms for use of the
members of the Temple.
Surmounting the entire structure, which
will be a twelve or fourteen-story building,
will -be an immense roof garden, where, In
fair weather, meetings bf the Shrine or
special entertainments are to be hetd. This
t roof garden Is to have a seating capacity
aa large as the main auditorium, which will
mean that a special elevator service for the
accommodation of many thousands of per
1 sons will have to be Installed.
Lu Lu Temple, which today has the third
largest membership of any Temple In the
world, having- 8000 members, was organ
ised In December. 1883. when twenty-eight
Xnlghts Templars connected with Philadel
phia Commanderles held Its first meeting
to give a. Shrine to this city.

The Metro style
and the
Themodist
Are the agencies which
project themselves be
tween the man and the
machine and give to the
AEOLIAN
Pianola
the Human Touch
of the Artist!
Tl
!
iHUS, it can call out of
the shadows of the past
tne genius or a departed
Beethoven and translate
it into enthralling music as in
terpreted by any of today's
greatest pianists.
The Themodist gives you the
expression, the touch, the spirit
of the pianist literally, abso
lutely; it brings out the theme as
clear as the stroke of a bell on a
desert of night silence.
Cm)
Steinway Grand
Pianola
The Metrostyle gives you the correct interpretation of the music. It leaves nothing
to mechanics, nothing to chance.
It IS the Artist!
Only at Heppe's can you buy the Genuine Steinway, Weber,
Steck or Stroud Aeolian PIANOLAS Remember at Heppe's
But do not confuse other piano-players with the Pianola!
The coal in your cellar and the diamond on your finger both are
carbon. Yet you would never think of calling a diamond coal, nor a
lump of coal a diamond!
, That, precisely, is the wide difference between the Pianola and
ordinary piano-players. Might as well compare the moon with the
sun as to confuse the Pianola with the usualmechanical imitation of it.
The Heppe Pianola line, includes the finest pianos in the world at
their prices.
The genuine Pianola is on exhibition and sale at the Heppe
Stores as follows: v
THE STECK PIANOLA THE STROUD PIANOLA
THE WHEELOCK PIANOLA THE BER PIANOLA
ALSO THE STEINWAY PIANOLA
Prices are from $600 up to $2500. Most moderate payments,
