Modern Roofing Methods (Continued) of the other metals. Copper roofs can be used only on the most expensive and pretentious buildings, and their cost is now prohibitive. Sheet steel is expensive and is of little value for roofing. Wrought iron requires constant repair. It must be kept thickly coated with paint, and no part can be left exposed to the action of the weather.

One of the best known of roofing materials is slate, a natural product which embodies no mixture of any kind, but is simply taken from its bed like granite, marble, or coal. In addition it has the peculiar advantage of being split into thin sheets and then with dressed edges made ready for roofing purposes. As is well known, slate is exceedingly durable, and in many instances where slate has been used upon a roof for more than one hundred years it is still in good condition. Experience has shown that slate properly applied to a roof is economical in the end and controverts the many statements which have been made relative to its excessive cost. A slate roof is fire-resisting, is attractive in appearance, and seldom calls for repairs.

Tar and gravel roofing is largely used on flat roofs and if properly made will last twenty or thirty years. Tarred felt or asbestos felt may be used. The latter will not burn, but does not last as long as the cotton felt. Authority for the lasting qualities of these roofs is found in the recent yearly reports of the American Railway Engineering Association. The following is quoted from one of these reports :

“ The built-up coal-tar roofs have shown by many years' trial their value for protecting flat roofs. Instances where a life of from twenty to thirty years has been obtained are not at all rare.

“Where proper materials and the requisite skill in application are available, builtup roofs of coal-tar felt, coal-tar pitch, and gravel or slag are recommended for roofs with a pitch of two inches or less to the foot.”

The roofs of mills and warehouses are generally of great area and protect valuable machinery and goods. The first feature makes considerations of cost important; the second emphasizes the need of perfect protection.

Most owners of big roofs have adopted the so-called gravel or slag roof on account of its low cost and adaptability to large flat areas, coupled with the excellent protection which roofs of this kind give when properly laid. Tar and gravel roofs call for no maintenance expense, because they are neither painted nor coated. When the roof is once laid in place, the owner has no further responsibility, and is able to leave it untouched for years.

It is thus seen that the prospective builder has many varieties of roofing materials to choose from, but he must always bear in mind the adaptability of the material to the particular style of roof and building which is to be constructed. In all cases the advice of a competent architect and contractor is essential in order to secure the most satisfactory and lasting results. Our leading roofing manufacturers are issuing much instructive material on the subject of proper roofing, and are always glad to aid the man who is planning to build a home or a factory to decide aright on this all-important point.

We are indebted for much of the material in this article to a number of the leading roofing manufaclurers, who have sent us valuable material, and to articles in several recent issues of the Building Age" and the National Builder."

BY THE WAY The near approach of the Germans to Amiens, with the consequent possibility of the destruction of its fine Cathedral, makes the following allusion to that Cathedral interesting. It seems that many windows in the Amiens Cathedral are without stained glass, in that respect differing notably from those of the wonderful Cathedral of Chartres. Contrasting the effect of this difference, the “ History of Architecture” by Professors Kimball and Erdgell says:

Some of the most masterly of the world's designs in color may still be seen in the interior of Chartres. The color, sometimes flanning, sometimes hushed, played vividly upon the religions imagination. How much is lost with the destruction of stained glass may be gauged by comparing the interior of Chartres, where the glass is largely preserved, with that of Amiens. Although the latter is probably the more perfect building architecturally, its effect as the cold light streams in from the white glass of the windows is vastly less impressive than that of Chartres. Curiously enough, the Cathedral at Amiens lost its stained glass, not through an invasion of barbarians, but through the foolishness of (literally) short-sighted ecclesiastics. Another authority says:

In order to see more clearly ... the near-sighted canons deliberately removed the long, decorative panels of the windows and replaced them with clear white panes.

General Baden-Powell, says the “Christian Science Monitor," at a Boy Scout meeting told of a boy who one night went to bed without having done his “ kind act." Just as he was beginning to feel rather miserable about it, he heard a mouse in a trap in the room. “ What do you

think he
did?''asked the General. The boys promptly
replied : “ Let it out.” “ Not at all,” replied
the General ; "he hadn't done his kind
act: he thought of the cat."

The spoils that await a possible German raid on Vladivostok by way of the Siberian Railway are indicated in the final chapter of Donald Thompson's new book on Russia. Mr. Thompson returned to America last fall via Vladivostok. He says: “ The amount of supplies tied up in Vladivostok is incredible. All the hills as far as you can see are covered with them; some have been there for two years.” There ought to be some way of securing these supplies for the Allies' use.

“A story is told of a woman who wrote to her decorator in a large city,” says “ ToDay's Housewife, “ as follows: "The library is now finished. The rug and hangings are green. Please send me at once five hundred green books to harmonize with the inclosed sample.

The comment is made that this is an easy way to solve a difficult problem, but that a better way is to use your own good books of various colors in such a way as not to produce a hodgepodge color effect. “Several green books, then a red, two or three more green or blue ones creating a group larger or smaller than the first, but not the same number as of red, should result agreeably,” is the magazine's suggestion.

The moving-picture presentation of Maeterlinck's “Blue Bird” is said to have encountered and solved mechanical difficulties that taxed the movie men's ingenuity to the utmost. Among these problems were the transformation of a stone into a flower ; the changing of the grass of a cemetery into blooming lilies ; the sending of Father Time through space on a ship laden with the souls of unborn children ; etc., etc. These feats for the camera are said to have been accomplished with even greater success than in the presentation of the play on the stage.

Are we making a mistake in preferring white sugar to brown? Henry T. Finck, in the “ Century,” says:

“ What the refiners remove from the cane sugar is its very soul ; that is, its aroma and fragrance.” He quotes Dr. Wiley as saying that cane sugar is "aromatic, fragrant, and delicious to a far greater degree in the raw state than when it is refined.”

The crews of vessels that sail from port in these times and are not heard from are not given up as lost for a long time. The schooner Bessie A. Crooks left Pernambuco the iniddle of last January and was reported missing. Now her crew of seven men are, it is announced, prisoners in Germany, the vessel having been sunk by some German rover. This has revived hopes in shipping circles that the same thing may have befallen the sailors of the ship Timandra, which has never been heard from since she sailed a year ago for Buenos Aires from Norfolk.
