Ai! the Eiffel tower approaches the twenty-fifth anniversary of its con struction, Parisians are reminded of the storm of abuso that broke whert the tower was first proposed. "To realize what wo arc planning to do," one artist wrote, "we have only to imagine a tower vertiginous ly ridiculous, dominating Paris like a black and gigantic factory chim ney, crushing with its barbarous mass Notre Dame the Salnte-Cha-pclle, the Tower of the Saint Jac ques, the Louvre, the dome of the Invalidcs and the Arc do l-riomphe. All our monuments .humiliated, all our buildings dwarfed 1 Everything disappearing before this stupefying nightmare 1 And for 20 years we shall see stretched out over the whole city, still bright with the genius of so .many centuries, the jnk-black, odious shadow- of this odious tower of bolts and iron 1" Nothing more damning was ever written, even of the Cubists. Yet the Eiffel tower has long ood as one of the most attractive units iii all of the civic architecture of Paris. Twenty years this gloomy prophet sots as the limit of the tower's life. Already it has withstood the winds of 24 winters. How much swavinjr mass will remain a safe structure the engineers are not pre pared to say. Built of iron lattice work, before tlie dayji of steel con struction, the Eiffel tower annually costs thousands of dollars for paint ing and repairs. Men are forever crawling over it, tightening bolts., fighting rust and soldering chains. Thrice important, as a wireless sta tion, a meterological observatory and a thing of beauty, the EiffeL will not fall, as it was builtamid chorus of anathema.
