Arrangements have been made by the local union whereby a miniature ex- hibit will be shown of the Homo at Colorado replete with Information as to the pail being played by the "men of typo" to alleviate the sufferings of tho human race in this and othei respects. The results of experiments made by the Union are open to those interested in the work and are con sldered by the highest and foremost medical authorities of the day to have been of inestimable value. Re- search work, experimental work, all have done great good and today this Home Is looked upon as one of thd moat important factors hi the fight. Tenti Are Consumption 'being one of the dis- eases to which the printer is espec- ially liable, it is not surprising that the ravages of this disease have caused many to seek shelter and care at the Home. The hospital building at the Union Printers' Home is locat- ed Just south of the main- structure, covering H space of 50 x 90 feet, and Is three stories in height. Ten tents were first erected 'near the hospital building, In 190-1, for the use of tuber- culosis patients. They proved such valuable acquisition, to the hospital service in the treatment of lull trouble, that ten more were added i Tn shape, the tents are diag- onal with framework as substantial as that of a house, are securely an chorcd on four sides, and withstands the most severe winds. The tents are steam heated, lighted by electricity, and have a system of electrical call bells by which the tenters can immed- iately summon a nurse. "'With twenty tents and the hospital given iip to tuberculosis residents there was need of a central building To supply this want a central build Ing, called the solarium, was erected 1907. The experimental stage in open to the treatment for tuberculosis has long since been passed. Fully 50 per cent, of the patients who 'ha the advantage of "tent life" and the re-generating rays of the Colorado sun have recovered health strength and have been again assume business duties. There arc many tent colonies in Colorado but few of them compare with the Tuberculosis Sanatorium at the Homo. f Where it Colorado Springs, where the Home is located, Is a city of'' inhabi- tants situated upon a plateau about feet above the sea. Electric cars will take you tq the mountains, only a few miles away. The charms and fascinations of ihessurroiinding mountain scenery have furnished theme for many pens. Who has not heard of Pike's Peak, ot Manitou, with Its health-giving springs and picturesque villas, of the Garden of the Gods, Glen Eyrie and Cheyenne Cannon? All theso and many more are close at, hand, affording a never-, railing delight at each visit. Medicin- al springs, with healing waters, bub- bio im.amid the foothills, and a light, dry atmosphere with an abundance of clear weather and brilliant- sun- shine, has been and is doing wonders [or thousands of invalids who seek health and life in this vicinity. The Home Site On a commanding eminence, over- looking Colorado Springs and the s.ur- rounding plains, stand the home build- ings. They face the west, and from this point we have a panoramic view of the Rocky Mountains from Castle Kock on the north, to the Spanish Teaks on the south, a distance of one hundred and twenty miles. .To the west the land slopes down to the city, and to tho southeast to Prospect Lake. To the south and cast the land nclines to a dry creek. Tho soil is dry and loose, tout, produces abundant- ly when properly irrigated. Gateway at Entrance of The magnificent stone gateway at the entrance to the grounds consists of a central elliptical arch, 12 feet 9 inches wide by 1.3 feet -I inches high, for vehicles, with a half-circle arch In each side, 5 feef, wide by 8 feet high, for pedestrians. Between the centre and side arches are heavy piers feet 0 Inches square and 19 feet fi inches high. Smaller piers ore erect- ed on the'sides, with a curved wrought Iron railing. The drivewny is furnish- ed with double wrouffW-irou the side gates being of similar mater- ial. The face of the central arch itonea bears tho Inscription in gilded letters: "Union 'Printers' Home Erected and Maintained by the International Typo- graphical Union." The date of the erection of the A. U. is placed over the sido arches. Light is provided from ornamental wrought- Iron electric lamps, placed on each side of the large piers. An ornament- al iron fence .extends some -150 feet on each side of the gateway. This improvement, which was completed In 1901, cost about and Live Stock In 1907 the stock barns erected some years previously, were partially by fire. barns and sheds, presenting a handsome archi- tectural appearance, and in keeping with the substantial character of the other home buildings, were immed- iately erected ni. a cost of about 300. They are large enough to care for 25 head of cattle and six horses. The cattle arc Holstcins, and the herd is one of the finest in Colorado. Supported by the Membership Many people suppose that the ex- penses of the home are defrayed by endowments. Such is not the case. since 'the original gift of Messrs. Guilds and Drexel, the home has re- cclvoa 'but one endowment, that being 'made by Herman S, Hoyt, trustee of the estate of Julia A- Ladd, of Shir- ley, Maes. This bequest of less the. inheritance tax of the state at .Massachusetts, brought, the home Under tho terms of the be- qpest it is known as the Julia A. badd fund, and no portion of the original amount can but such interest RB may.be thereon to: ward the expenses of the home. With this one exception, tho home has no endowmjents. .Since its completion, all expenses of the. home, including cost of main- tenance, have been paid from money contributed' by, .members of the Inter- Typographical Union, the revenue provided: by, setting apart a certain portion 'of the monthly contributions to the Union.

Harris Fire Insurance per month, in addition International Typographical the Union per capita tax, was levied for the support of the honie, but the Phila- delphia session of'.-the International combined the home assessment of 10 cents imd tile monthly per capita tax of 15 cents, classing the two at per capita tax, and crediting 20 per cent, of the amount or 5 cents a month per member, to the home's support. This prevailed until .March, 1SS7, when the Increasing demands on the home made an increase in revenue neces- sary, and a new law requiring thirty cents per capita tax per month went into effect, the home receiving one- third of the amount, or 10 'cents per month per member. This revenue proved' inadequate the needs of the home, and on March 1, monthly contribution was 190S, the Increased io 35 cents at which figure ft now stands. Averane Cost Per Resident During the year ended March 31, the expenditures from the home hind were Included In this amount is all money paid for improvements and repairs on the build ings and grounds, farming ex- penses, insurance, food supplies, clothing, pensions, medical attend- ance, transportation of residents who vacate, burin'.s, salaries of employees and officers, printing and the expen- ses of meetings of the board of trust- ees. Deducting the cost of building ind furnishing the library addition, the net cost of maintenance is found to be or per year; per month per each resident. When It IE remembered that the sum covers till expenses in connection with the un-keep of the home property and the care of its patients in a manner not excelled, if equalled, in any similar Institution, the cost will not appear excessive. Inmates Accommodated From tho opening of the home in July 1S92 to May 31, IfllO, appli- cants have been admitted to the home. Any member of the Interna- tional Typographical Union, who has been such for ten continuous years, may for admission to the home.

Other Benefactions In addition to the.Home and Sana- torium, the International Typograph- ical Union has other 'benefactions equally as laudable. For years it has paid a death benefit and three years ago an old-age pension fund was in- augurated, under the rules of which j x members attaining, the age of sixty years, with a continuous membership of twenty years, are entitled to a pension of four dollars'per week. It has also established a technical school for benefif. of journeymen and apprentices, In order that they may perfect themselves in their cho- sen and that the art of print- ing may be advanced, thereby per- forming a public and patriotic func- tion.
