THE factory stack appears to symbolise a certain aspect of industrialism better than any other architectural feature. From the factory stack there belches forth smoke, the
smoke which makes both town and country black. In times to come it is likely that this
blackening effect of the industrialism of the nineteenth century will be held to be its salient characteristic. The factory stack has character, it expresses a certain power, but has it also beauty? To this latter question we are now in a position to give an answer, and we can say what kind of a factory stack is beautiful and why, and what kind of a factory stack is ugly.

My subject is Some Lessons from Practical Experience, with special reference to Structural Work on Railways, and is intended chiefly for the younger members of the Institution. I am at a loss to know who is responsible for the title, the Literature Committee, or our very energetic and esteemed Secretary. I certainly did not choose the title, or elect to read a paper on this or any other subject; and I have been heard so often during the past three or four years, as President or otherwise, that I should have felt more happy and comfortable to have kept in the background for some considerable time yet.
