Wood aa Pire-Proof Material.
According to The Carpenter,
among the various plans now re
sorted to bj- English builders for
rendering wooden flooring resistive
to the action of fire, is that of con
structing solid timber floors, com
posed of ordinary joists placed
close to each other, and spiked or
screwed at intervals with bolts.
The latter are fixed alternately,
and to form a key for the plaster
ing angular grooves are cut under
each joist, the grooves forming a
series of dovetails. In a similar
manner, stairs are formed by a
series of joists screwed or spiked
together, which are cut to form the
soffit, tho latter being prepared for
plastering l3 groove. With i
gard to partitions, preferoniv is
given by many to the French plan
of constructing them with quar
tering, filled iu with rough stone,
rubble, then lathed on eaeliMde,
with strong laths, and a coat of
plastering applied and pressed
through the vacuities from iach
side. In the construction of roofs,
the hrying of solid concrete flats
on the French system, covered i
with asphalt, is a method highly
