Let the layman ask a building expert for the latest information about the new Publishing House and he may be told that all is going well, but that the processes are the same as those already described in these columns. However, an inspection of the erected portion develops questions, the answers to which are matters of course to the expert.

The B section of the building now rises three stories above the basement. Above the middle portion of the third story will rise another story, placed there for architectural beauty as well as use, and set back, in which will be housed the bindery of the Publishing Society. From this story a passageway along the center of the roof like the handle to a broom will connect with the fourth story of Section A, in which will be located the bindery of the Works of Mrs. Eddy.

Let us observe the roof of B section which surrounds the future bindery for the Publishing House. Now it has a concrete finish, but eventually it will receive a coating of asphalt and gravel. Curiously, there seem to be inset at intervals paper mailing tubes from which project center cores of wood. They prove to be mailing tubes which the builders purchased in quantities to form the outlets for conduits to the roof. The tubes are sufficiently strong to be efficient for the purpose. The wood inserted in them effectually blocks the entrance of dust, splinters, etc.
