This factory contrib utes mare to Cncle Sam'i strongbox than any other in the United States, and it has for companions the biggest brewery in the country and the most extexxsiTe drug hcu.

A3 this is to be ex pected when yoa come ta think cf the fact that ourtown. whicn some people consider a little slaw gclng.

Tbe latter was es tablUhed at a coiuparaUveiy reevnt date, ud xullUcna cd ikdUrs were etpendrd iu the laod and iaiprorsntents tetjulml. Hut the tig I'nioa depot and the build lug id the freight terminal ate not the vuiy structure worth mentioning la thi klto. The most interesting one to rue Is the courthou though Kt Luis&s da ovt tjdk about it ft they do about scoua of the other bulkllngv It U an old fashioned pile, built year and years ago, of tuaeslte blocks of stone, in that so railed clasalo style of which many great pillar area prominent eJtternai fvture. It is only two stories high, but its ceilings r lofty. nd it Is topped by dome from which, but for the den black sxuoke that hangs eeer the town, every street and alley of SV Louis and the country for miles about could be clearly seen. Originally the courthouse was cf tbe color of grsy free stone, which Is protaWj the luatetUl that was used ia buildlug It, but the outside walls hate tvea lately painted glaring white, and thi makes It, Independent of its old tahWuvd peculiarities, by all odd the most cotttpicuou structure In town, fur all ether St. Louis building are dlugy and Vrvwn, runulug to black, from the all pervading siuvke. The painter who was lucky euough to get the Job has made great um? cf It as an advvrtUement, hav lng been allowed by the authorities to place on each of the cvlumued porticoes a lgn. painted gaudily la red and grveuand yellow, whereon ts inscribed ft lcgvnd set ting forth his merits as ft contracting rsjdnter, together with the location of hU place of buineckC. It U midgut from the fresh paint on this fine old courthouso that the tramfor tuatiou process la St. Louis Is not likely soon to extend to the temple of justice, and that fact Is not one to bo regretted by any save thobe who desire to see nothing but newness eirery where. The new city hall, however, now nearly completed, will be one of the most splendid domiciles cf municipal gowrnmeut In the United States. The old city hall, in which as many of the municipal departments as can Cod room are still housed. Is quite aain terestlng In Its way as the courthouse, but not so conspicuous, because it has never been pointed white. It Is a brick building sad must have been considered a Tery larre one when erected. In architectural style it resembles a great tobacco curiug ware house, and It U absolutely without outside adornment. The buildings which are polnttxl out to stranger here are, first, tho Union sta tion, of course, which cost more than 000,000; a gorgeous new hotel of uwny stories. ju6 finished, at a cwt of nearly J, 000,000; the 14 story, baseruent and ob serrascry building of the Union Truj5 cozapany; thu" 10 sChry S1.000,m IlialtLV the board rf education building, ett. Some 310. 000. 000 wag laid out In high l ulldlc last year, myt.' Louis acquaintance a.- sures me, and other lofty structures to cost $10,000, CQQ more are now a building cr projected to go forward as soon as tfrrw are definitely decided to bare picked up. It is these new buildings, perhaps sv much as anything ele that bave contrib uted te theapparent transformation of the town, and. next to them the banihtnect of horses and. mules as traction power fur the street cars, the cable and the trolley having taken their place on all but two liaes. - St. Louis Is peculiar among cities of similar magnitode its population is now estimated at net far from 6CO.0CO In hav ing, frw residence -safcurbs- When you. leavje the cicy limits, yoa step right out lno the country, aoi ds mistake This Is explained, by St. Louieans to- be due . to the Xact that the oil In the lTTtTnerTiate vi- THE HOTXL. cinlty is- thin and clayey, so poor. In fact, that gardens and lawns do net fienrish. The peculiar nature cf the sclL too, and the broken character cf the territory, they say. make the building of good roads a difficult and expensive matter. The resuls is that in its growth St. Luuis has teen more sclidly built up than any other great American city. St. Louis Is alio the sclldes city finan cially la all the land, fcr during all the de pression there has net been one bank fail ure, and the tus.int-?s failures have been few and ccmparaxively Insignificant I.
