NEW YORK.—In the city of New
Ye.rk, where millionaires seem to
thrive like mushrooms in a cellar,
there Is being constructed an apart-
ment house in which a suite of rooms
will rent for $25,000 a year. Probably
this rental Is the highest that has ever
been asked for an apartment, even
such as will be found In this bouse, a
series of 18 rooms and so many baths
that one would be able to use a differ-
ent one every day In the week and
two on Sunday without doubling on
his trail. It is the apotheosis of lux-
ury; the last word, so far as the hu-
man mind of today can imagine. In
scandalous magnificence. In other
words, the builders of this house have
set a new pace for spendthrifts In the
way of living. A vearly rental of $18,
000 Is the highest that has ever before
been asked for unfurnished housekeep-
ing apartments In New York city.
The new apartment house will have
17 apartments—one on each of the 1"
ficors—and five duplex apartments In
addition. The eleventh and twelfth
floors will bs devoted to apartments
which will occupy all the floor space
and these will rent for $25,000 a year.
The apartments which nhere a floor
with half of a duplex apartment will
rent for $18,000.
The architects have arranged the
suites so that each of these big floors
shi'l have more and larger rooms than
