On the southwest corner about twenty feet had to be taken ont and mnch of that to bo nsed in the front of the bnildiog was sent back also. E. A.

After the terra cotta arrives next week no more delays are expected. The new synagogue for the First rviiii naiuui ucuicn mutual niu Society is being rushed to completion. Axel Wickstroin, in charge, has about thirteen men at work. The frame work of the roof is un. The slate for the roof has not arrived, but is ex pected during the next week. The only delay in the erection was cansed by the iron work not arriving on time. The iron columns to support the galleries did not arrive for four weeks after they were due. Everything is going well now and if everything con tinues in its present course, the build ing will be ready for occupancy in March. By Christmas the roof and floors will be laid. No more delays ar° reported in the building of the new St. Mary's church. Foreman Chnrh s T. Gunn and his assistant, Joseph Nurdyzz, have hid no delays since the trouble ovir the pay of the masons.
