OVER the courses of commerce, the
marts of trade, and the monuments
to financial preëminence, we gaze now
as we look from our office windows.
It is an inspiring sight to view the river,
with its changing colors, its bustling tugs
and loaded barges, and the ocean liners as
they come and go.
It is a new experience to look out at our
aerie neighbors housed in the palisadic
structures that rise about us and give a
sense of being modern cliff-dwellers.
Looking down on 30 Broad Street is a
literal fact, but we look down on the New

Street, with their surfaces so far down from
our dizzy height that pedestrians look more
like ants than human beings.
Across, on our level in the Broad-
Exchange Building, is the Mid-day Club,
where exclusive captains of industry and
Napoleons of finance partake of their

Speaking figuratively, casting one's eyes
out of the window, in addition to being a
fascinating pastime, well may act as a
sedative to tired nerves, frayed from the
friction of moving a small-sized town. As
one listens to the pounding and clattering
of various workmen, putting finishing
touches on the interior of the new offices,
the wish grows steadily that they too might
go "out of the office window."
