aside from its entertain ments stands out as one of the most famous buildings of New York city from the architectural point of view It was designed by the late Stanford White and he always declared it to be the structure which fitted in most per fectly with his ideals of architectural art Its tower topped by the figure of Diana for long was the loftiest pin nacle in Manhattan and although it is now surpassed by its near neighbor the Metropolitan Life tower it still stands preeminent for grace and airi nessThe building is designed in the re naissance style and is built of buff brick and terra cotta It is estimated to have cost nearly 3000000 It is di vided into distinct parts The theater which was opened on Sept 27 1890 with Dr Bill has been under separate management As a rule it has been associated with light opera such as Madam Butterfly and high class farce comedy Then there are the concert hall which has not been used much of late years and the roof garden The last will al ways be associated with the murder of Stanford White by Harry K Thaw during the first performance of a sum mer piece Mamzelle Champagne in 1906 The principal part of the Garden however has always been the arena It is the only building of its kind in the city and without it many of the most popular functions of New York social life would have been impossible- It was opened on June 16 1890 with a concert by Edward Strauss orches tra and every year since then for a week in November it has been given up to the horse show the official open ing of New Yorks social season In the political life of the nation Madison Square Garden has played a large part Such rallies as greeted Mr Bryan and Mr Taft in the last days of the recent campaign are ex amples of the immense gatherings which it has made possible Carnegie hall may be more satisfactory to the speaker but Madison Square Garden gives unrivaled opportunities for dem onstrations of enthusiasm Sportsmen electricians business men and many others have used the arena for exhibitions Athletic events of all sorts have come off within its walls including the six day bicycle races Barnum Bailey Buffalo Bill and other well known showmen have used it to delight New York and its chil dren and it has ever been the one re source of those who wished to give the people of Manhattan an entertain ment on a really large scale This Garden replaced an older and Inferior structure famous among oth er things as being the scene of the prize fight for the championship of the world between John L Sullivan and Charles Mitchell s WE WORK TOO HARD TO

completed I and this part of the course is twenty two feet wide at the narrowest point and is built on scientific lines so as to permit of the attainment of the great est possible speed There are many picturesque symmetrical curves and eighteen cement and steel bridges 1crossIng intersecting highways These bridges and curves are so graded and banked that the racing cars may dash at them without any slackening of speed The track represents a marked advance in construction work of this character and a source of much dan ger has been eliminated by carrying the roadway over or under all grade cross ings but one It is possible for the racing cars to pass easily at any part of the circuit and in many places three cars can travel abreast at speed A grand stand seating 5000 persons has been completed and the entire parkway has been fenced in so that it cannot be entered except through the toll lodges established Home Thoughts Mrs Knlcker We are to have a thousand foot skyscraper Mrs

far little in the way of organization has been at tempted the suggestion having been put in circulation merely to ascertain the feeling of the alumni A committee will be appointed from the Harvard Alumni association and from the different Harvard clubs to take charge of raising a fund No lim it win be put on its size The form of the memorial has not yet been considered It will depend upon the amount of money that is available It doubt less will be used to further some of the interests of the university which President Eliot has most closely at heart While this movement is in progress

of the Santa Fe and M K T Rail roads the one run ning South to Tulsa the other South West to Oklahoma City a third line is said to be almost a certainty and that in a very short time running East and West What surprised me most was that I found a fine little city of 12000 or 14000 inhabitants well laid out and substantially built filled up with a bustling and busy people On the eve of a seem ingly uncertain election and fag end of a great panic they did not seem to mine or feel it Six or eight years ago a mill a storf a post office and a few small houses were the town The mov ing spirit and for whom the place was Christianized was old Joe Bartles who owned the mill and did an extensive farming and other business and while I have the mill on my mind I will tell you about it as it seems to me to be a fine opening for some such a man as W R Myers or- G B Smith The mill was built where the river makes an ox bow loop re turning to within a few feet oi its upper course after a long bend and at the foot of a considerable rapid or fall A dam was built at the head of the falls and a tunnel cut through at the foot thus forming a fine head of power The mill is not in use now The key to the situation here is is gas and oil All other avocations being abandon ed or of very inferior importance and to give you an idea of what this means I will give you a few items A person can climb to the top of a mound West of the city and count between 500 and 1000 derricks and they are going up every day The man ufacturing enterprises are 3 dis tinct zinc smelting plants a large brick factory turning out hundreds of thousands every week of pressed brick for pav ing side walks etc A castiron foundry and several machine shops and a glass factory were in operation up to the panic but has not resumed yet A sash and door factory and several smalle enterprises are all using natural gas for fuel These are what are already here Besides this the city is heated and mostly lighted with gas and to
