THE REMOVAL OF THE DOME. ,
Thirty cords of wood snugly piled
against the south wall of the old power
house on the campus, and a confused
ma of scattered slate and httered
tin in the "cat hole" is all that re-
mains to tell the story of the great
dome that adoried the main building
of the University for nearly a quarter
of a century. The woodwork of the
structure 'ill: ascend higher in the
form of smoke, while the slate and tin
will aid in tilling the depression of the
earth in the suburbs of the city.
Five men were employed three days
in taking down the dome, and as
many more days were occupied in re-
moving the debris from the vicinity
of the building. The work was all
done during the Christmas vacation,
so that the students escaped the din
of the incessant hammering as well as
the danger of the tlying timbers, and
the aggrevation of the dust that filled
the air for days.
The great structure weighed fully
five tons, and it was seventy feet from
the ase to (he apex. Its greatest
diameter was thirty-three feet, dimin-
ishing to three feet at the top. It was
surmounted by a lightning rod that
had seen better days and a thirty foot
mast from which the stars and stripes
floated 'in former years.
The dome was constructed in con-
nection with the erectibon of the main
building in 1871-2. It was for several
years the popular retreat of sightseers
and students, as from the windows of
the spacious circle an expansive view
of the country could be obtained. Jan
itor Apple"ford" (ls how the students
would even climb over the irregular
rafters and out through the small trap
door at the top of the dome to see the
country, while he himself had the task
of running up the flag from that point,
tie height being 150 feet from the
ground. During the past few years
but few have ascended the ladder to
tle dome, and since the new organ

was poorly constructed and soon be-
came a source of trouble and expenseI
that increased with each season's
storms. It was visibly affected by the
high winds, and shook in such a mcn-
ner as to require precautionary meas-
ures.
The necessity of preeanution against
accident became iimperative when the
Frieze Memorial organ was placed in
position in the main hai l directly be-
neath the dome. The board of regents
decided not to risk damage to that
costly instrument, and the dome came
down at a cost of ,$500.
A temporary roof now covers the
space formerly occupied by the dome,
but Superintendent Reeves sys it is
not the intention to allow tis bob-
tailed alppearance of the tbilding to
become perimanent. It is pr posed to
place a new roof on the entire building
of the now populiar steel construction
plan, and in connection with that work
there will be a new dome of modern
design. It will be in the form of a
half globe, abou"t" ilf"is high ms(ie
old one, and completely of steel. It
will combine the features of attractive-
ness, ligitness and durability. The
new dome will probably be in position
ready to welcome the returning stu-
dents next fall.
