WOODWARD & Lotiiuop.
Once a year the, manufac
turers of our "I. C." Corsets
give us a "Job" to "wake
up" the trade.
This year they have out
done themselves, and have
closed out to us four styles
of elegant hand-made French
Satine, Coutil and Satin Cor
sets, at a terrible loss to
themselves, but claim they
are not going to make any
more of these particular
styles, hence were willing to
lose a little money.
In presenting these re
markable bargains to our
customers, we believe we
arc offering them fine French
Corsets at a lower price than
such elegant goods were
ever offered by any house
in this country.
In view of the intrinsic
worth of these goods, their
perfect shape, finish and ex
cellent wearing qualities, we
do not hesitate to advise'our
customers to buy two or
three pairs, as the stock is
not large and the sizes will
likely soon be broken.

A MAGNIFICENT COURT.
('onnnlsslouer Utiiek l'roniHineiM the
nodding ii Noble .Structure.
In general npncnrnnco ittnl the male
rial tiscil lit Its construction, tlio'now
Pension building Iscwnllnlly different
from nny of Uncle Sam's great edifice
In Washington. Tlio building Is con
structed almost entirely of brick, and
not of stone nnd Iron, like the l'ntcnt
Olllce, tho I'ostolllco nnd other public
structures hero. Vor the information
of strangers It cun bo staled Hint it is
located on what Is known as Judiciary
s(iinic, between Fourth nnd Fifth and r
nnd G streets northwest. On approaching
tho smiaro the somewhat grotcsuuc, hut
still magnificent, building shows olt to film
advantage, even though tho surroundings
ns yet nro not partlculaily attractive or of
much architectural beauty, Thcro aro heap
of dirt and rubbish, lots of carts, and any
nmniinl of building material scattered
about, hut one can draw upon his Imagina
tion enough to understand how vastly dif
ferent tho nppcamneo ot things will bo
when tho square Is put lu good order.
'Iho building, so lar as Its exterior Is con
cerned, Is decidedly masslvo and Imposing,
In splto of what sceins to ho Its exaggerated
details. It Is a solid mass ot red brick, re
lieved by very pretty window-caps and sills
of torra-eotta. Just aliovo tho windows of
tho first floor mid extending around tho en
tlio building nro representations from army
life, such ns Infantry scenes, detachments of
artillery, (quads of cavalry and wagon
Tho main building Is In dimension? -100 by
SOO feet. In tho centre thcro Is a court, tho
dimensions of which aro illOfect by llllfeet,
In this couit tlio Inaugural ball was given
last March. At that tlmo thcro was no
loot on any part of tho structure, and n
temporary covering had to bo constructed.
Thopoitfonsot tho building which nllord
tho working rooms of Iho department nro
only three stories lu height proper, but tho
walls lu Iho very centre nro run up much
higher, nnd this gives lino llnht nnd ventila
tion In the spacious court. Tho plan of tho
building Is after an Itnllnu model, but tho
nrchlteettiio Is of n heterogeneous style, bo
longing to no particular school.
It Is vtvntlally n brick edifice, and lo put
Itup neatly seventeen million bricks were
used. It is claimed that it Is the largest ex
clusively brick building known of in tho
world, and tho very finest material has been
used In Its construction throughout.
'Iho solidity of tho structure Is unsur
passed, The foundations aro thick, mid tho
pillars, i i's in an, aro unusually large, in
the centroof tho court thero ure two rows
of huge brick pillars, four In each row,
each one of which contains HO.OOO brick.
Fxtciidlug nroiiuil the com t, nml as a means
of support for tho brick work nbovo, is n
row ot pillars on both tho first mid second
floors. Those on tho lower or ground floor
nro of terra cotta, and tho second or upper
lot mo of lion. These aio ultimately to bo
maiblclred. Tho Innuendo brick pillars In
tho centra will bo plastered and llutod,
which will tender them all tho moio Im
pressive. Tho dlstanco from tho floor of tho court
to tho dome of tho roof Is about 100 feet,
Workmen nro now putting on the roof,
which Is ot terra cotta with ventilators.
Thcro nro numerous glass skylights, and It
Is very Interesting to watch tho workmen
pulling in tho glass and lilting In Iho terra
As a rulo tho rooms In which tho clerks
are employed nro very large, ufrordlngspaeo
torn gicnt number of desks. There aro
ninety-six of these general looms. L'p to
tho picscut tlmo everything Is In a moro or
less confused condition, but tho officials

withstanding. Tho greatest Inconvlcuoo
seems to bo'from n lack of eases in which to
pack documents. Tho latter aro piled up

lhit few of tho rooms havo any decora
tions outside ot those asslgued to tho prin
cipal olllclals. General lllnek's apartments
mo fiiH'oed rjullo handsomely, and so aro
those of his chiefs. Tho Commissioner'
offices aio lu tho southeast comer of tho
tcconil story. Tho luxury ot carpets for tho
present Is dispensed with, and straw mat
ting covers tho floor lu his room, ns well as
In tho offices adjoining him. There H no
floor coveting lu any of tho general offices,
and tho desks nnd furniture do not look
altogether suited to tho rooms. It would
not bo surprising If the next Congress wcro
to bo asked to appropriate money with
which to puichasofurulturo moro lu keep
ing with tlio building when it shall havo
Tho forces of all tho divisions have moved
Into the building oxcept four, and tho
work of tho bureau Is progressing well, de
spite tho many disadvantages to bo conten
ded wilh. Hundreds of roofers, plasterers,
bricklayers, and other mechanics aro work
fug in ami mound tho building. It Is also
ery lively In tho court. There aro two
steam engines puffing away constantly,
cuts and wagons come In mid go out, and
the sound of the saw and hammer help to
keep up n continual clatter. Tlio watch
ii.on have agi cat deal of t rouble lu keeping
out people w ho have no right to enter after
visiting hourH tiro over. Tho unfinished
state of tho building and tho nbscuco of
gates or doors Is apparently uuderstoo I by
tho casual stioller to signify that ho can
walk In whenovcr he wants to.
Tho building will probably not bo entirely
completed for a your and a half. Tho In
teilor decorations nro to bo on n grand
tonic, and thus work Is slow and tedious,
General Illack, In speaking of tho building
yesterday as ho stood In tho court for n tow
moments watching tho busy workmen, ro
iiuukeil that It was what he considered "a
ISi'cad on the Wntci'M.
