aving described my invention, what I claim is: i .c

1. A built-up partition pillar, comprising a pair of plain bounding panels, a pair of marginally tongued panelsadapted to cooperate with said plain panels in rectangularly enclosing a hollow central portion, and a spanner piece provided with overengag-ingmarginal edges, adapted to hold the opposingly located tongue portions of the panels thus formed in firm engagement against the ends of the adjacent plain bounding panels. 2, In combination with a plurality of pairs of initially-Separate panel members,one pair having their edge portions tongued for engagement withthe edge portions and the adjacent surface portions of the other pair of 7 panels when arranged about unoccupied central space, spanner pieces engaging over the ton ued 0 aosinc edge and mar 'inall v D 5 L1 L1 b over the outerlateral surfaces of the tongued panels, to hold them firmly intheir described position against the ends of the other pair of panel members, and screw members structurally correlating thespanner members and the'adjacent plain panel portions.

3 In combination with a pair of plain panels and a pair of marginally tongued panels opposingly arranged in cross-sectionally rectangular relation about an unoccupied central space, the ends of the plain panelsbeing overengaged by the tongued marginal portions of the second pair of panels, spanner members provided with inturned edge portions adapted to correlatingl-y engage over the opposing tongued edge portions of the second pair of panels, and removable uniting screws, each of which passes through or into not; less than two of the enumerated parts.

4. A built-up partition post, having in combination a plurality of panels which mar-. ginally over-engage one another, thereby sur-; rounding an unoccupied central space: within which a pipe or conduit may be located,- core relating screw members engagingthrough the meeting marginal portions of the several panels transversely ofthe plane of one of the panels traversed and coincidentally with the planeicf. the other adj cent p n l, a spa ner member po iti ned i para l l. relatio with We of; t e p nelsand. o er ngag ng ith i s. c erbent ma ginal ed s the adjac nt n pQrtions of the panels, whose planes; extend transizersely t er of, and. sc ew mem ers. passing through each spanner member and the adjacent parallel positioned panel.
