The Venske Block.
Several "handsome and substantial
business structures have been erected
on the principal streets during the
past season, and still another is in
course of construction, work upon
which is well under way. The Sen
tinel refers to the building of Mr. H.
Venske, which, has a frontage of fifty
feet and a depth of ninety-five feet.
This block will be two stories high, the
first floor having a 15-foot ceiling, and
'»the second floor an 11-foot ceiling, both
being figured in the clear. The sub
stantialness of the structure is shown
by its concrete foundation walls, which
are three feet at the bottom and eigh
teen inches at top, and also by the party
walls, which are sixteen inches, with
end walls of twelve inches. The front
will be of rubbed brick and penciled.
By a rubbed wall is meant that care
fully selected bricks of uniform color
are chosen for the purpose. Generally
not more thaw300 bricks are taken from
a thousand. The front will, of course,
be of plate glass, and as the entire first
floor will be one room the effect must
necessarily be pleasing. The rear win
dows will carry to the ceiling, and will
be in part prism glass. The interior
of the store room will be arranged es-
■ pecially for Messrs. Walker & Kinter,
the furniture dealers, who have a long
lease. At the rear there will be a deck
about 50x16 feet, and the same arrange
ment will be made on either side,
the decks being the entire length of
the store, with a width of ten feet;
Mr. Venske expects to have the build
ing fully completed and ready for oc
cupancy by December 15. It will cost
of the entire cost of the building. The
second floor, while finished throughout,
has no partitions, the owners being un
decided as to whether this will be made
into office suites or used as a large hall.
The Structure is a credit to the city, as
well as to the men who had sufficient
faith in the future of Cottage Grove to
build it. ' ________
