Subjolnod aro a few detalls of tbls work whlch are ot luterest. The flrst work on the Langdon estate ltn provomeuts waa begun about April 1, wben Eroparatlons for tbe constructton of tbo rldge across North brancb wero made. Tho work ot urlvlng tbe pilea on wblcb tbe 4,000 cubic yards of masonry rests was be gun about May 1 and is now practlcally completed. About 3.000 pllos of an aver- aco lenctth of thlrtv feet have beon driven. Two to five pilea in width have boen placed under tho vvulls and aiz nndor oacb ot tho Bolld brick plera bullt at regular intervals turougu tno contor oi tno cellars ol tbo buildines. Two ateam nile drivera hava been uaed, one ot whlch waa worn out ln iuo wutk. oomo oi lue piiea reqnirou 100 blowa trom the 2,000 ponnd hammer to force them through an occaslonal atratum of hard boII wblcb waB oncountered to the requlred depth. Aiter urlvlng, tho pilea wero cut oll so that thelr tons would ho helow the low water mark ln order tbat they mleht be for ever preserved. Tbo earth abont tbo piles waa then ezcavated to a foot below thelr tops and a bed of concrote comprised of cruahed stono, aand and Portland cement nve to alz loet ln width was Iald, coverlng the tops of tbe piles a foot above and below thus making for the stone walls a solld bed rock of two feet in thlckness. Nezt headera of cranlte of two or more feet riae wero placed on tbla mass ot con- crete, eztending under tho entlro founda tlon, includtng tbe outside and lnalde walls and tbe piers. From tbe concrete to the cellar bottoms, from 10 to 12 feet, blocks of granite are Iald ln Portland cement, upon wlilcu rest the walls of tbe bullding wbicb are nlno feet in beight. Tbese, alao, are buge blocka of granlto Iald in cement. Flve buildings bave been moved and foundatlons, substantlal, but of a more eeonomlcal order, placed under them. Tbree of theso buildings are located across tho river on Elm street acd thelr passage ot the stream was made over a brldge bnilt of Bome 4000 railroad tles, in some places to a neigut ot zu leet. rueae buildings bave been remodelled, presonttng a modern ap- pearance. iuo lounuation Ior tne vaults on the nrst and second iloora of the bullding on tbe corner ot Main and State stroots, 1b practl cally a Bolld mass ot masonry, ample for the aupport of tbe immense load ot ten tons to tbe running foot wbicb it ls estimated tbe vault will weigb. Thia foundatlon is sev enteen feet by twenty feet, anpported be low tbe Burface of tbo cellar upon piles concrete and masonry, after tho same man ner as the walls already described. From the surfacoof tho cellar to tbe top of tbe first tloor of tbe bullding aro walls of brick two feet In thlckness, encloslng a mass of broken granite made solld by Portland cement. Tbe buildincs in nrocess of constiuctlon cover an area of 20,: 00 surfaco feet.

Five englues, rlve steam derricka, two ateam pumpa have been em- ployed and about 3,000 barrels ot Portland cement bave been uaed in constructing tbe fouudationa. From tho foregoinc some idea may bo ob- talned of tho labor and ezpenae whicb tbe varloua constructions thus far have lu volved, and in a way an idea obtained of wbat muat follow before tbe work will be completed New Uooks for tlie Llbrary.
