"All day thy "wings liave fanned
At that far height thjs cold, thin atmos

Though the dark night be near "
JEOJIGE DE 1IAU
rier is never weary
of quoting these
lines; lines which
In the de Musset
French he loves
to write, he as
serts to have a
fascination for him
when he looks
about him from
heiidit. Du Man
ner says that Goethe conquered vertigo
by ascending to Uie roofs of towering struc
tures and looking about him. but he won
ders how the author of Faust resisted the
impulse to leap out into space. The author
of Trilby lias quite an essay on tho sub
ject in tho pretty collection of literary
bric-a-brac "Wiittentln French years ago.
For Bn Mnuricr wrote for his bread and
butter long lwrore he took permanent I v to
the pencil, but only the French public
knew him. It surprises the Gallic read
ers to find their Du Alaurier now hailed as
an artist turned nntiior. To them he Is
an author turned artist.
But that, as Thackeray would say, is a
digression. Du Maifnerean only be brought
into court on the plea of his connection with
the thenfe of bird's ejeviewsfromtheloftiesb
structures w ith which man ha3 yet wounded
the amour propro of the hills. Some oppo
nents of the extreme would prohibit the sky
scrapers. What would they say or thattower
mg structure, the highest yet erected in New
York, the new building ot the American
Tract Society, now rising, like Gulliver, to
itB full twenty-two stones, among the ten
story lalliputs that now cluster about New
York's City Hall? It is a skeleton in armor
now, all iron, bolts, beams, and windlasses,
pushing the birds nearer and nearer the con
stellations, as each setting of the sun ages
this year ot our Lord. From Nassau street
files can be seen crawling over the skeleton,
like the wasps Dante dimly discovered on
the giant'shead in hell Only the pmileged
pilgrim who is favored with a permit has
a chance to satisfy himself from perbonal
observation that these flies are men, and
instead of feasting off the giant they are
putting flesh and blood upon him.
It is " cry strange, the psychological as well
as the physical effect of a vast height upon
a human being. One of the greatest experts
in mental healing in tins land, Dr. S. "Weir
Mitchell, has gicn his attention to the
mental influences upon men and women of
constant sojourn in the human hives that
tower in eery city nowadays. It is a fact
that to look out of a window, day af terday,
that affords aiew, unimpeded, of miles
and mileB of streets, will in time seno'ily
affect the brain. That is because the psy
chological eficct is very direct. The mind
is deluged with new impressions. It Is
almosthke the crislsof a man born blind and
What must be the effect upon the men
whose livelihood is gained by toiling upon
the summits of theePclious of architecture?
They gain courage for one tiling. On the
Tract Society building these men are now
gyrating here and there on dl77y distauces,
splicing, nailing, running, shouting, as
if a step downward meant gettiug off a log
instead of descending plumb from a steeple.
As for a casual visitor, the effect upon hun
is eerie. Miles and miles or street, brick,

stone, mortar, river and even ocean, when
tho day isclear, sprawl awotothesky like
traveling herds. Everything seems to be
walking slowly away, and the sailing clouds
seem empty clinrlqtB harking back for more
So much for tho objective aspect of it.
Subjectively, the .effect is unfiling to all
attempts at portrayal. One suddenly
finds out that there never was a Pecksniff.
The big city one ascended to such a height
to see is not a big city. New York becomes
a lot of buildings, precisely as the new
philosophy calls the social organism Just a
lot of people. One returns to earth a
skeptic, but with a "very dim notion of
what one is sceptical about.
Tho thought that when this vast edifice
is completed its hundreds or offices will
be tile scene of the day's labor of thou
sand sof people means that the average
mental psychosis, If one may com the
term, or to many people will be gradually
but surtly changed. It mny seem Incred
ible to many to atsert that only to spend
four hours a day In such a building for
a year would modiry the theological opin
ions of any man. But if the new theories
ot mental reaction be soundly based, it
would do more. There is a more jntfmnte
connection than fs usually Euppetted be
tween one's physical outlook and the im
pressions which, reriected by what psy
chologists call npperceptlon, are synthe
sized into generalized thought. Any class
looking out upon the world from eighteen
storywjndows every day communes with
nature in other fabhions than do the shep
herds. And precisely as the Egjptian
rulers became astronomers from having
once been shepherds, must the office class,
if the term be applicable, become some
thing or other as a icsult or their lofty
perches. Bo much for the new Tract So
ciety building as a factor in psj etiological
Meanwhile, the men who build these
monsters go braely about their work,
little recking of the importance that at
taches to their labors from a subjective
point of view. They are surprisingly
sure-footed. They step from beam to
beam " lth the temerity of mountain goats
or Alpine guides. They are always care
fully selected by the contractors. Occa
sionally it is asserted that these brave
fellows are poorly paid for such risky toil.
The reverse is the case. It is a rule in
the building trade to fight shy of a con
tractor who loses a man in the course of
construction of an architectural monster.
It is, in the superstition or the trade, a
sign or bad luck for the building. Its of
fices will not rent well, or the ghost of the
dead toller will always haunt it. Be this
as it may, the odium attaching to con
tractor and building, after a fatal accident,
has prompted extreme caution m the se
lection of the men who go up to these
far heights Such a laborer must be
known to be careful, expert in his trade,
slow to take a risk, quick of eye and not
easily "phased" In an emergency. For
sudden and extreme are the emergencies
arising ecry day on these mountain
heights. A beam falls out of place, a
rope slacks sudden'y or an order is mis
undoistood. Again, some monster beam

must be put in position, and the patient
care of many men is ciulal They
must co-operate and be well known to each
other A s-ingle fake move on the part
of one would most likely mean the de
struction ot all.
Yet In spite of the attendant risk the
serious accidents are ery few This
Is at least a tribute to the men who follow
so lofty ajiursuit, In a very literal sense
It is rather strai'ge that so few poets
ever get to tbe6umralt-or tliese- mental
skeletons The foreman of the gang
now toiling on the Tract Society building,
and he has been In the business eighteen
years, does not remember having in all
his expenence, seen one poet "up top,"
as he puts It. He attributes the fact to
the timidity of bards. Certainlv no
poet's eye, in a fine Trenzy rolling, could
sweep a more effective vista than such
a one as this.
Whether this stnicture marks the apex
of accomplishment in that line, or whether
we shall ascend architecturally to height
on height of deed and thought, like the
knight in Waverly, is a matter upon which
every man employed on the building had
Dut one opinion. The foreman said that
every Building he had worked on was
higher than the last, and he felt sure that
the progression would be maintained.
He expects, as he says, himself, to tackle
a thirty-eight story job fii-1900.
The men themselves think their work
very healthy. It seems to toughen them
amazingly, and longevity, apart from ac
cident, is the rale of the trade. But it is"1
the rerormer who now seek1? to bring down
the pride of the orflce building architect,
who must feel most concerned in this aspect
of the matter. There is a etrong agita
tloti in New York, Chicago and other big
cities to make such leviathans illegal
but to all appearances they seem destined
to swell grandly from the -vnle as usual,
it It be pardonable to put it as some of
the poets who never soar to these eum
mlts might put it ir they ever Happened to
