REINFORCED CONCRETE To Reconstruct Old Mission The old mission at Santa Barbara, California, will soon be s>o reconsti ucted, it is planned, that it will bo preserved for generations to come, yet no detail will be in any way "altfered. The re eounstructed building, which is archi- tecturally and historically well woi Iii preserving, is to be so rejuvenated that it will preserve the same impression* as the oldi not only in colour values and textures, but also in conto.ut- and age. Tlie old eccentricities of the floors and walls, none of which aie in either lion zontal or vertical planes, have been carefully measured and will be re- tained in the renovated structme. As planned by the architectural board, it is their intention to chase the walls of the lower story for rein- forced concrete columns to be carried down to spread lootings at a sufficient depth to carry the structure. These columns will support reinforced concrete and tile iloors. In the monastry section, all exteiior an...

Tait, of Oporto, the only species of eusalyptus trees grown in any large quantity in Portugal is the blue gum (Eucalyptus Globulus), the first plant of whicli was sent from England to Oporto, in a flower pot by an English merchant, about the year 1847. ' In 1880, Mr. Tait began to make what eventually grew to be the largest plan- tation of eucalyptus trees in Portugal, and perhaps in Europe. At the same time, he made a study of the- uses to .which the timber of Eucajyptus Globu- lus could be applied, including the mak- ing of wine ca.-iks. There was a great pröjud'ce asainst the employment1 of eucalyptus timber, under the mistaken notion that It must conta'n a ...
