CRUDE OIL



is iVO \V burned by TWO methods,
the FESS SYSTEM and the other



WE have passed the stone age. In
the new year of 1911 you will find in
the improved FESS SYSTEM, the
only advanced science of burning oil.

We eliminate the use of a complicated air
compressor, numerous adjusting valves, and
the noise of combustion. This system is
operated with 759!; less power and produces a
smokeless fire; in fact the advantages are so
numerous that it must be seen to be appreci-
ated. We can convince the most skeptical
that the problem of burning crude oil for
heating purposes has at last been solved.

the most perfect fire protection known, because
they are made o.f Asbestos (rock) Fibre and Port-
land Cement — both minerals. .Vre absolutely
proof against fire, water, acids, gases and chemi-
cal fumes, and are not in the least affected by the
niojt severe weather conditions, e.xcept tliat tlic
longer they are e.xposed the harder and tougher
they become.




J-M Transite Asbestos Shingles

are moulded under hydraulic pressure Into a homogeneous mass. They never rot,
decay, warp or split like wood shingles. Are tough and resilient, but not brittle, so
do not break and fall oft like wood or slate. Weighing only about half as much as
slate, they save considerable In freight, are much more easily handled and there is
no danger of breakage. These Shingles are also excellent non-conductors of heat
and cold.

J-M Transite Asbestos Shingle are easily put on with ordinary woodworking
tools. Come in many different sizes and shapes to meet all conditions and in colors
of natural gray and Indian red.

Vol. XXV. JUNE, 1911. No. 2.

The New St. Luke's Hospital, San Francisco

By GEORGE A. BOS, C. E.

THE site of St. Luke's Hospital, which cavers practically the entire block
bounded by Valencia, Duncan and .\rmy streets, and San Jose avenue, San

Francisco, is now occupied by a number of old buildings standing' at the
south end of the block. These buildings have been kept in condition for
hospital work by constant repairs, but do not have the latest modern appliances
and apparatus, and not being fireproof, are not suitable for first-class per-
manent hospital work.

The Hospital Corporation has been enabled to begin the plans for a new
group of buildings by a niunificcnt gift received from ^Irs. I^ouis F. IMonteagle,
Mrs. Whitelaw Reid and Mr. ( )gden Mills. This gift, amounting to $400,000,
of which one-half was contributed by Mrs. Monteagle, and the other half by
Mrs. Reid and Mr. Mills, jointly, is intended for a memorial to two of the
close relatives of the benefactors, Messrs. Calvin Paige and D. O. Mills.

The donation will make it possible to erect a complete and modern hospital,
capable of accommodating 1 50 patients, and fitted with all of the latest appa-
ratus and features which are now required for the safe, efficient and sanitary
conduct of hospital work.

The scheme presents certain features which vary from the common hospital
plan, of a central administration building flanked by two hospital wings. This
