BACHE'S BRICK BLOCK
Most Imposing and Substantial
in the Town.
The Hache ll.1rdw.1re company's brick
building on Mill street Is about finished.
It Is decidedly the handsomest business
blocl In camp, and would be a credit to
any town. Though It has a frontage of
only twenty-live feet, It Is In every re
spect a metropolitan appearing structure.
It covers the entire length of the lot, 100
led; has a sixteen-foot ceiling in the first
story and twelve feet In the second.
There is nothing showyabout the front,
hut there is an unmistakable air of sub
stantial solidity about it, that Is materially
enhanced by the large plate glass window
lights, Each of the front windows have
sashes 126 by 156 Inches insle, the lower
light being H4 by e indies, with two
above, each being 42 by 60. 'I he side
window sashes, between the door and
Iront windows, set at an obtuse angle, are
.jH by 156 inches in sic, divided Into two
lights, the lower one being and the
upper one (to Inches in length.
I he entire lirst lloor Is In one store
loom, in t lit- tear of which, half way to
the celling Is a twelve-loot wide gallery
Irom wall to wall. This will have a Iront
i-utltelv of glass and will be used as an
oilier. It will be two or three weeks he
forelhe store will be occupied, as It will
require about that time to make the fix
tures, mnsistlng very largely of drawers,
as well as shelving, such being necessary
In the hardware trade.
HiL-seioud story will be readied by a
stairway yet to be instructed, on the In
sJe ol the adjoining wooden building,
now and in Inline to be occupied by the
I lardware company. I he telephone alike
will be moved to one of the trout utlkes,
and the others will be for rent.
I his building mst about $1 1,000.
