out smoothly, and the ends joined by the use of the coupling designed for that purpose.

Where more than three elbows are un- "mitationsT avoidable an intersection box shall be inserted to relieve both the wires and the tubes of strain when the wires are being drawn in.

All tubes shall emerge at outlets in 136- outlets, terminal boxes leaving the outlets so protected as not to be injured by the plasterers.

To guard against mechanical injury and ^ork ^tS the destructive action of cement all floor a^SV^d"


conduits shall be made of double tube, one telescoped within the other, and both the outer and inner tubes joined in the usual manner. The outer tube shall, in the case of contact with cement, be alkali proof. As a further protection floor tubes shall be covered, during construction, with a light board. Such other precautions shall be taken to insure the safety of the tubes as the character of the building and work require.

Each side of circuits carrying more than TM 0f§"£ amperes shall be run in a separate

tube. Wires forming parts of two distinct circuits shall in no case be inclosed in the same tube.
