An Archit Ectal wart Whoso demolition will Causa no Tours. Those who have become attached to the dignified and colossal pile known As the Chicago Post office will be pained to see it go but writes Bill Nye in Tho Chicago Herald there Are Many who will no doubt control their grief without difficulty for it can hardly be called Beautiful even if it could stand up by itself. The style is of the dutch ren nuisance with etruscan Gables and real cracks in the a tailings. Starting out apparently with the idea of being a foundry it groped around among the architect jul 4 nightmares of the past and secured a style of roof which gives to Tho beholder a Dull pain in the neck. Changing its mind after fooling with the More Medie Val rolling Mill order of architecture the imposing Pilo sorta Only succeeds in Cap Ping its Climax with a delirium of gothic do funnies and architectural Wens which though Well fitted to Marla the final resting place of the dead letter does no credit to the irrepressible and undaunted spirit of Progress which flashes in the Eye of tire Chicago real estate agent As it is now danger to human Lilois added to the feeling of revulsion which is aroused by the Tough and Rocky aspect of the building. It stands in the midst of Beautiful and massive structures to Day a measly Monument of Man s cupid Ity and poor taste. It is not even a picturesque ruin but some Day will Ollend the sight and crush out the life of people who Are ill prepared to die. There Are architects who have Lucid Bromide intervals but the Chicago Post office and custom House were not the result of such an interval. Some Bright autumn Day or Early in the Spring when the soft South wind steals up from Egypt and kisses the Hooks of Tho girls on Prairie Avenue or meanders through Tho Young whiskers of her Fiance just As the Frost is head i ing out of Tho ground some Fine morn ing As Tho postmaster is stamping the outgoing mail for Waukegan he will hit some letter an extra lick and there will be a loud of dust the Funky odor of the dead Lotter the Roar of settling Walls and a bling battlements and then the Chicago Post of Hoo will to no Moro. So wobbly Are the Walla i am told that the slightest pfc May seriously affect them. Even pm sudden settlement of an account precipitate the Torri ble calamity. Tho Federal building of i Rupies one of Tho most desirable Sites in the City and yet it is a constant menace to human life and assault and Battery upon the Good taste of the people. It is the deformed and club footed offspring of a disordered brain and a sad commentary upon Man s appetite for the hard earned dollars of Tho United states. It Marks an Era Ini Tho history of Tho country when satan aside his own work and just Fol i Lowed the average Patriot around Fromi place to place learning his methods Andi getting pointers from him. So when the time comas to give up this Archt i to Tural wart and say Good Byo to this James Crow wad of shapeless and in i stratified blunders there will be few tears 1 judge. It has clinging to it Noi Beautiful memories. Even to Unm Usi i Cal and immoral English sparrow1 no come Eaon Spring to build their1 it to nests and squeak and scoot and rear their Yonng have no resp oct for the tottering mass. No neighbors will sorrow to see it go. No scalding tear will wot the dust and busted Walls of the dark and dismal wreck.
