It is proposed to establish a general

The tariff "ill bo of the simplest possible form, not protective in the «eusn

Tho plan favored is to allow raw

Substantial Buildings and low
Sometime before spring the full sj/,,,
model of Edison's concrete house will
bo erected and the votorotl electrician
thinks tli.it tho world will hail the invention as the crowning glory of his
career. The task of F'lison was to
make concrete How like water, builders and all other practical men will
tell you lhal conci'oto i-iuuiol How.
Edison says liny .'ire wt'oiig, ami he
hits proved it. In one sonso however,
they are righl. The sort of concrete
they work wiili will not flow. Edison's
trick was to discover something to
mix with lh,' concrete liml would
cause ii I" (low, nnd would m-i otherwise affect  it.
Tho concrete house is almost ready
to be placed on the market. The inventor Hoes not expect to tnako any
money out of the concrete houses,
There will be no royalty. He will
give certain reputable contractors in
different localities exclusive rights to
make lhe buildings, allowing (hem a
In )kt cent profit for their investment
in the necessary plant. Tlie houses will
be placed on the market at 81,'Job
each. This price will include uol ouly
tin' cement, but tin- doors and windows, ind overythlng but the furniture.
Tho scheme as described by Edison,
i- to "pour concrete into ■-, mould as
though you wore moulding a statue;
thou takn owoy tho mould, and find a
house complete, from roof I" cellar,
wall frieze, bath lub, stairs and porches, nil fireproof, vermin proof and
everlasting." The 81,200 house will
contain a cellar, divided into two
compartments. 01, the next floor will
be a kitchen rtud a large living room;
two besi rooms and a bath room on
Iho next (loot-, and two children's
rooms in th" attic. Tlinrn is also an
8-foot porch: all ceilings are high and
the windows unusually wide. The roof
looks like tile but ia only concrete
tinted to resemble tile. All panels,
mantels and ornaments are to bo
moulded iu one piece with the house.
The objection urged that the houses
would all look alike has been over-
como by ihe ingenuity of Mr. Edison,
"ho has the moulds arranged like the
parts ,,f „ puzzle.They can be shifted
and rearranged ho that six kinds of
houses '-an be built with a single set
of mould-. Tlie tinting, oruamenta -
tion, locution of the porch and other
esternal features enn also be varied as
the owner may elect but thn interior
of the houses will bo alike.
A zet of moulds to build the houses
will   cost   8'26,000  nml  arc  componod   ol
last iron Ordinary wooden moulds
v.iu'd cosl 81000 ami 82000 more for
