Two amcuiltncuts to the Hock Crook L'ark bill
were offered on Tuesday by the committee hav
ing the matter In charge. First, that the name
bo changed to "Columbus Memorial l'ark;"
and second, that ono-hnlf. of the original cost ho
put upon the Dlstiict. The latter is of mone
tary interest to the tax-payers here, and will
meet with a certain amount of disapproval, but
I believe that a largo majority will be satisfied
with the arrangement. "While at first it will
temporarily deplete the District's pockctbook
very quickly, the increased value of taxable
property will reimburse nil outlay. The bill
has been repotted favorably, and it appears that
ntlast we will secure our great National l'ark.
X HEAL ESTATE EXCHANGE.
In "Washington there are over three hundred
real estate agents, with an aggregate business
amounting to several millions of dollars an
nually, yet there is no real estate exchange
here no place where the brokers can meet and
fraternize, and where harmony and uuity of
action may bo promoted. A large number of
the brokers are unknown to each other, nud for
this reason confidence and cordiality docs not
exist between them, thereby lesseniug the vol
ume of business and proportionately the profits
of each broker. "We have a Board of Trade, a
Stock Exchange, a Builders' Exchange, and a
Georgetown Unllroad Company will also build
cable lines on Fourteenth street nud Pennsyl
vania avenue by next. October, tints giving a
continuous cable S)-stem over all their property.
Mr. John W. Payne will soon build eight
brick buildings on K and Nineteenth streets at
nn aggregate cost of $40,000. Mr. T. F. Schnei
der is the architect.
Mr. Lcroy Tuttlo will nt once build a hand
some brick dwelling on Lcroy Place, Washing
ton Heights, at a cost of $23,000.
Frank N. Carpenter will erect a $10,000
dwelling for Oicorgo A. Jordan at 1517 P street

siderable activltv in that section. All availa
ble mound as "far as the District lino is ex
hausted, and the operations now extend to and
several miles beyond Bcthesda, Md. Tho ad
vanced values nt this remote point arc largely
based upou the hope of the clecttic road which
was incorporated several weeks ago to run
from llockvUle over this route to the Distiict
line. Among the sales consummated hist week
in this vicinity are 11. OiTutt to J. P. Winter,
100 acres, for $30,000, and Spencer YVatkins to

Business Men's Club, but none of these meets
the requirements of the real estate agent. What
we need is an exchange composed exclusively
of real estate brokers and devoted wholly
the interest of real estate, where all matters
pertaining to Washington realty can be dis
cussed and where joint effort can be put fotth
for the advnacemeut of Washington property.
Sttcb exchanges are now in successful operation
in New York and many other large cities. A
great portion of the growth and Improvement
of Washington is due to her real estate agents;
they have built haudsomo houses, erected mag
nificent business blocks, established street rail
ways, opened and improved miles of streets on
the stibtubs in truth, help make Washington
the queen of American cities. Such a record
achieved without organization is but an evi
dence of what can be accomplished with a per
fected real estate bureau, where coaction would
A real estate exchange can be made a finan
cial success within itself. Of the three hundred
and twenty agents doing business here, say
that only two hundred and fifty would become
members of the association. Ati initiation fee
of $50 each would give the exchange $12,500
cash, and annual dues of $25 each would bring
a yearly revenue of $0,250, or all these figures
could be increased or diminished according to
the needs of the exchange. Such an amount
would maintain the association handsomely
and satisfactorily. A prominent office building
could be erected and made a paying invest
ment. The exchange could issue stock to the
extent of $250,000, payable 10 per cent, monthly,
or otherwise, for the purchase of ground and
the erection of a suitable building, and an aver
age subscription of $1,000 by each of the 250
members would quickly exhaust the issue. With
this sum a magnificent building could be con
structed, the exchange handsomely housed, and
good dividends accruing from the rents of the
building declared to the stockholders. Tho At
lantic Building, built and owned by a stock
company, has been signally prosperous, and in
like manner would this project prove a success.
Such an organization would promote honorable
and liberal dealings between the members, and
debar all whose requhements did not comply
with the laws and regulations of the associa
tion. The Eckington Railroad Company's amended
charter, allowing them to run up G street to
Fifteenth, has caused a flutter in G-street
"iound. For several years this thoroughfare
Has been abandoned to boarding-houses, livery
stables, and small shops, but lots are now

A number of sales have been effected and
many more are under way.
The Builders' Exchange has completed its
negotiations for the purchase of the old First
Baptist Church, located on Thirteenth street,
near G northwest. Mr. T.J.King, the secre
tary, bought the property some weeks ago for
$45,000, aud he has now transferred it to tho
Exchange for the 6ame figure. The building
has a frontage of 05 feet on Thirteenth street
by a depth of 155 feet. It will be entirely re
modeled and have a stone front.
It i6 rumored that the trustees of St. Vincent's
Orphan Asylum, whoso property Is on G street,

Tenth to Eleventh streets northwest, will con
sider an offer for the 6ale of same, they being
willing to remove further from the centre of
the city to some section where they may obtain
larger and more healthful quarters. Their
property is large and valuable and will com
mand a handsome figure.
The incorporators of the Georgetown and
Tenleytown Railroad Company were before tho
Commissioners Wednesday to discuss the hill
to amend their charter so as to allow their
tracks to occupy tho roadway instead of pur
chasing the right of way along tho road. Tho
company only has until August next to com
plete their road, and If much delay is occa
sioned them this will bo Impossible. Under
the plan presented twenty-eight feet of road
wav will bo left, which for present purposes is
all that is required. Permanent extension and
widening of the streets will eooh be made, and
then greater traveling facilities will he granted

Young 3r,ou 0f classic Antiquity and Their
From Texas Sittings.
The term "gilded youth" is as old as the
latter days of the Roman republic, and was a
favorite phrase early in the empiie. It could
bo traced in Greece to the age of Alcibiades,
who was perhaps the most famous specimen of
his class in all antiquity. The gilded youth
who ilouiished In Rome during the reign of
Augustus were the antitypes of modern Europe
and young America.
When the wealthy young Roman arose in
the morning he went at once to the thermn?,
the hot baths which for magnificence, luxury,
and size have never been equaled. This estab
lishment was upon so vesta scale that it formed
a village almost in itself. The halls where the
brilliautti filers lounged were spacious. They
were decorated with statues and engravings.
Above them were apartments for every imagina
ble comfort. In the refectories were delicate
viands, ftom nlghtiugales' tongues sent from
afar to turbot from the Adriatic aud oysters
from Britaiu, washed down with all the de
licious wines of Italy, Sicily, and Greece.
The Romans were as fond of the game of
ball, tossed from hand to hand, with many
complicated rules, as the English aro of cricket
or Americans of bise ball. For this there was
nmnU nnnnmmnilattnn wltlitt, tl,n wollc in lnrnrn
halls specially set apart for the players, and by
this exercise and other gymnastics, youne and
old alike preserved their health and strength,
aud what many of them valued even more
highly, their appetite.
The bath, which was a most elaborate affair,
was often taken thiee or four times a day.
The final stage was the anointing with aro
matic oil and rohiug the body with the most
loosely-fitting raimeut of the softest and costli
est fabrics. The gilded exquisite, then gar
lauded with a chaplet of llowers, was ready
either to dream away the hours on the most
luxurious couches, to play and gambling ran
very hieh or to indulge in any of the other
amusements of the place. One of these was
listening to the recitations of poets or the com
positions aud discussions of the sophists or
philosophers, most of whom were immigrants
from Gicece. A number of the young meu
wrote verse and prose of their own aud assem
bled all their friends together to hear them
read, and if they were very rich aud very liberal
in dining and wining they had hosts of sympa
thetic auJitors. Then followed visits to the
schools where gladiators were traiued, laying
bets on their favorites, and to taverns where
riotous nights were passed, making still more
imperative the refreshment of the next morn

The following story is told about the editor of
one of Maine's most prominent dallies:
""When a small boy his father, now one of the
most prominent men in the State, was running
a printing office and publishing a weekly paper
in one of the largest towns in Kennebec County.
One day the advance agent of a show came
along and ordered some posters printed upon
cotton cloth. His order was filled, but for
some reason he neglected to call for them and
they were thus left ou the printer's hands. The
printer's wife ran across them, and as cloth was
then high she took the cloth home aud used it
to line a pair 01 pants sue was men matting lor
the editor above mentioned, then a boy about
ten ycais of age. As tho months rolled by the
pantaloons grew threadbare, and at school one
day he accidentally tore the seat out, leaving
about one foot of the lining exposed to view.
This in itself would have made the boys smile,
but they laughed till the tears came when they
observed the following words standing out
boldly upon the lining in largo type: 'J)oori
open at 7:30. Performance begins at 8.' It Is
needless to state that the boy was sent home to
his mother in tears,"

thoroughfare upon which tho rough cobble

of the street prevents carriages and other light
vehicles from traveling it, and thereby works

As soon as a famous French tlcmi-mondaine
dies tho I'arlslenne is excited until she knows
wheu the bale of her belongings will begia; and
to havo something once possessed by one of
these women is counted, only a woman knows
why, a great glory. "When Mnic. Musard's
effects were sold, there were boxes upon boxes
of fine silk stockings which had never been
untied, and the other night, at a smart danco in
London, a beauty, whose costume was of green
tulle, put out her little foot and told with great
glee that the gieen silk stocking incasing it had
been among those bought at tho notorious
Mubaid's 6ale. Mme. Musard was among the
first of the women, of this century, at least, to
regard the serpent as an ornament, and people
who remember her at the opera in tho glory of
her wonderful diamonds never fail to tell you of
the tiny viper which encircled her neck, bringing
out its incomparable whiteness and making the
jewels look all tho brighter by its dark skin. A
young married womau in New York possesses
tho famous turquoise which was the delight of
Cora Pearl, and another glories in an emerald
band with which it is said her golden locks weio
