TO THE PUBLIC. 



mSEKl'L iiifoniiatioii for those interested in the erection of bnihlings, artistic as well as durable. Much money has been spent on 
large buildings, without considering progressive ideas of construction, or pleasing effects in Architecture. One of the greatest 
points to be considered is the scientific, as well as the practical manipulation of all raw material entering into these structures. 
Long experience has taught me that nothing is too good in the wa\- of material, and I spare no time ur expense to secure the 
best results obtainable in preparing the plans and specifications, and superintending the construction. You may have an elegant set 
of plans, and if the builder does not follow them, the owner is the lostr, and the architect has to shoulder the blame. So many of our 
profession understand the theory liut are unal)le to put the same into practical execution. 

On the following pages of this Ijrochure will be found a few suggestions to the public, also cuts of a few buildings executed 
in my office. 

The advertisements that appear in this book represent the very best firms in their respective lines and solicit first class work. 
Parties who desire goo 1 work and low prices will do well to correspond with them. 

Yours respectfully, 

FRANK P. MILBURN.

READ THIS. 



Heavy excavations should uot be made during July and August in our southern climate. 

Lay foundations with cement-mortar. In freezing weather keep the brick dry, in hot weather wet them. 

All floors should be double. The rough floor in frame buildings should extend to siding and will make a very good fire 
stop, as this will catch falling mortar from the plastering. 

Make wide verandas, and avoid using sap flooring. 

Avoid openings to attic or resting places for birds at the cornice line. 

Do not lay wood shingles in lead paint, it rots them. 

Use only dry lumber for finish, and avoid using green lumber in the frame. 

Attics should be well ventilated to carry out the heated air between ceiling and roof. 

Chimneys should be built from the ground. Make walls of flues not less than 8 inches thick ; flues for stove, 8 inches 
square; flue for fire-place not less than 8x12 inches. 

Two-thirds of the fires are caused by defective flues and 4-inch walls. Chimney tops should be laid in cement-mortar. 

Hearths for fire-places should be laid in cement-mortar in order to prevent rats and mice from undermining them. 

Avoid carpet strips between connecting doors. They are troublesome to the housekeeper. 

See that your gas or electric outlets are located to be convenient, and in the places most needed. 

See that proper spaces are provided for beds, bureaus, bufSets, etc. 

Doors should not open into closets or hallways. 

Doors to buildings where large gatherings are held should open outside. 

Locate dining-room according to prevailing breeze in summer. 

Closets, moth-proof, can be had by using cedar ceiling. 

Provide picture moulding. This saves the damage to plastering. 

Staircases should be wide, well lighted, and have wide step with easy rise; 62 in. is good height. 

Avoid winding stairways, especially in public buildings. 

When you have decided to build consult a first-class architect, who should be a master builder. 

The charges of all reputable architects are the same. It is poor economy to employ a man who does not know his 
business, at any price. 



CHARLOTTE'S FINE COURT HOUSE. 



Hl'liATl'R]'; of improvciiicnts in the Smitli is llic many new municipal IniiMinKS that liave been erected, are under contract, or in 
contemplation, fonsideralile attention is ),Mvi'n to tiic introduction of ]]roj,'ressive ideas in these structures, and as a result there 
is to lie seen many pleasiuj; examples of architecture in tliis ilirection. Herewith is illustiated the new Tem])le of Justice for 
Meckleiibur;; County, North Carolina. It is one of the best in llie State. It occupies the site of (jueeii .\nne's Museum, built in 
1776, on Tryon Street. The building; is of fire proof construction, 75x120 feet, with granite foundations and a])proaclies. H\iff brick and 
buff stone facade, marble floors, and hardwood finish add to the beauty of the buildin;.;. It is regarded as a remarkable buililiuK for the 
cost, f5o,o<x), and much credit is given the County Comnnssioners for the wisdom of their choice. The .\rchitect, I'rank I'. Milburn, of 
Charlotte. N. C, was selecte<l, after plans prepared by twenty-seven prominent architects from all parts of the I'nitsd States had been 
exanniied. The principal entrance is (|uite imposing, with open portico above, surmounted by a large dome of pleasing proportions. —

intelligently and couscieiiliousl\- discharged every duty and obligation imposed upon you by reason of being the .\rchitect of the new-

to the plans and specifications furnished by you, and tliis speaks worlds for the .Architect. 

In addition, we want to say that you have made friends of this entire committee, and that you are at liberty to refer at any and all

II ii[i to a certain staiularil in their professions, an Architect is allowed to practice with no credentials other than llie 
sketch he carries. Yet the Architect who liuilds vour homes and jiublic buildings is of more importance than your 
lawyer or even your physician; for they have each only their respective work while the Architect has in his hands the con- 
struition. he niusl see that the materials used are of sullicient strength to support Ihi- load for whatever the Imilding was

Added to this he must understand the projur sanifaiy conditions, as well as heating, ventilation, arrangement and acoustics,

Varnish in Architecture SOSMAN & LANDIS, 



fl WORD FOR THE CliIENT. 

There would be fewer mistakes made in the workl if it were 
ordained that only the maker of a mistake should suffer the 
consequences. More care would be exercised, and a more perfect 
state of affairs would prevail if every man had to bear the whole 
brunt of his own errors or miscalculations. 

Take the interior finishing of a house for instance, if a poor 
or unsuitable varnish is used for the woodwork, the real sufferer 
is neither the Architect who specified it, the Contractor or the 
Finisher, but the Owner who has no practical knowledge of 
Varnish, and who had nothing whatever to do with making the 
blunder. 

It is largely within the power of the Architect to protect his 
client from becoming the victim of a mistake of this kind by 
carefully specifying the right Varnish. 

If hard Oil Finish is specified and used, the result will be the 
finest finish attainable on wood, but it should be remembered by 
both Architect and Client that there is no Hard Oil Finish but 
"Berry Brothers' Hard Oil Finish", and sealed cans bearing our 
label should be insisted upon. 

Finished wooils and interesting pamphlets on natural wood 
finishing sent free to any address upon application.

aQcl Slag IJoofir)^. 

^*^HI8 is put n]i in rolls of 108 square feet each, 32 inches wide, and we claim that it is the most perfect and durable 
11 Kootiiig on tile market. They are composed of two sheets of wool felt. These two layers are cemented together under 
hydraulic pressure ; the surface is then coated over with pliable Asphaltuni, into which is imbedded under pressure, 
screened gravel or crushed slag. This makes a heavy, compact Fire and Water-proof Roofing, which is fastened to the sheath- 
ing board with nails, same as other composition roofings. We furnish with each roll of roofing enough Asphaltuni to paint 
between lajis of the Roofing. This completes the roof. 

Prepared gravel and slag rooting have a two-inch margin on the edge that is free from gravel or slag. This is used for 
the lap and insures a water tight joint. We use a grade of screened gravel that is free from dirt, of a uniform size, for the 
Prepared Gravel Roofing; and on the Prepared Slag Roofing we use a crushed slag, free from dirt and of uniform size and 
color. This slag is a cinder from the iron furnaces, and owing to its peculiar shape, covers the surface of the rooting perfectly.

THE ELEIVIENTS 




Are the only leg-itimate despoilers of paint. Paint that chalks, 
cracks, scales, darkens or discolors from inherent weakness is not 
good paint, and should be avoided in the specifications of the 
careful architect. ,* t* .* ^ .* ,* j* j* .* ^ ^* 



Co:Mi3iisr^Tioisr Paz^ts 




Based on ZINC WHITE have no inherent defects. The ele- 
ments wear them away in time, but they do not decay, nor 
darken, nor changfe color. The careful architect, who values 
permanence of color and material, will specify an adequate 
proportion of ZINC WHITE in all house paints, ^s* J* -*

It isn't al together in 
the price 

You mijilit pay more and get 
not so good work— you might pay less and 
receive the short count, thumb-soiled, and 
botchy product of the type-smith whose 
sole plea for your patronage rests in his 
ability to "skin the other fellow on figures." 
•; Our printing is up-to-date, fair-priced, 
and of a quality not equalled elsewhere in 
the South, and not excelled anywhere at 
any pVice. " When in want of printing a 
bit different, .a great deal better, and pos- 
sibly not higher in cost than the best of 
the other chap's product, drop in and talk 
it over with us.
