Tho manv colored prisms that will be used In the novel and striking scheme, of night Illumination of the Panama-Paclflo exhtbt palaces are ot a fine cut glass, made In Austria by a process not followed elsewhere. The prisms, known as Jewels, arc patiently tooled by hand In tho homes ot the artisans. Tho road systems of tho Panama-Pacific International exposition will form a part ot an artistic color scheme. A material that will be widely used will be the "red rock" Indigenous to California, the rich tint of which will lessen the glare and add ' to tho warmth and color ot the grounds. The yacht harbor on the waterfront of the Panama-Pacific International ex position Is nbout flvo acres In area and has such Hinnlo and convenient docklmr facilities that coastwise steamers and other craft, some times, six or seven at n time, uso It dally, discharging building material. An Imitation of tho famous Travertine marble, from which the palaces ot the Roman emperors were built, is being used to make the statuary and the covering of the exhibit palaces at the Panama-Pa-, clflo International exposition. The com position Is a gypsum, rainproof and of unfading Color; in tint It is a faint Ivory yellow and la as smooth and hard as marble. The exposition sculptors and their assistants hwvc formed a social club, called the Travertine olub. since the are the first sculptors to use the ma tcrlnl for this purpose. j Death on the fiallowa is sharp, short agony.
