HOUSE REPAIRING IN ALL BRANCHES

excellent Insight Into the scope and
methods of the Washington house of
TV. B. Moses & Sons Is afforded by the
recent transformation of the Shorch&xn
Hotel, for -which the firm. In compeU
tlon with many of the largest dealers
and manufacturers of the country, se
cured the contract to supply all the
furniture, carpets, rugs, and hangings
to fit the house from basement to atUc
It was, necessarily, a "rush job"
and yet not a thing could be done to
ward installing the furnishings until
the alterations and repairs In the In
terior of tho buildings were completed.
It was the desire of Mr. Bane. Its
manager, to have the hostelry an exact
reproduction of tho colonial period In
all Its appointments. To accomplish
this the furniture, carpets, and hangings
had to be manufactured to order.
At this point the actual skill, effl
clency, and resources of the house of
W. B. Moses & Son become strongly
apparent. The number and variety of
pieces of furniture, and the actual num
ber of yards of carpet had to be est!
mated before the size and the number
of rooms had been fully worked out.
The house ordered from its manufac
turers 14.000 yards of carpets in various
colonial shades and designs, and when
these carpets were made up and fitted
to about SS different spaces. Including
bedrooms, hallways, stairways, and
parlors, there were exactly fifteen yards
of carpet left over.
In the halls and stairways where the
floors are of marble or concrete, the car
pets could be laid only by drilling holes
for the fastenings, and such drillings
numbered about 4.000.
Handicap Is Overcame.
When the time came for the furnishers
to take charge. In order to open the
house by the day appointed it was found
that some of the Interior work was not
finished. And yet. In spite of this seri
ous handicap, every piece of furniture.
eery carpet, and every curtain was
ready to be Installed and this work was
accomplished In every detail within the
brief space of fifteen days.
Altogether, a few more than 2,000 dis
tinct pieces or rurnlture were supplied,
mostly In solid mahogany. The beds In
about half the rooms are mahogany of
pure colonial design, and the rest are
the guaranteed brass beds, the most at
tractive and most sanitary beds made.
In addition to the 2.000 pieces of furni
ture, there were nearly 300 box-spring
mattresses and the same number of fine
hair mattresses and woven-wire springs,
about $00 feather pillows, and many Ori
ental and domestic rugs and special
pieces' here- and there which cannot be

superb and costly Oriental rugs.
In the "lounge." or principal parlor, of

hogany pieces were placed, embracing
some In tapestry and line brocade up-

taDies, settees, rockers. lounges, easy
cnairs, and Chesterfield sofas arc cov

try, velour, hair cloth, repp, and damask.
These pieces, together with the soft
lighting effect of the room, make It Just
a large, comfortable room, such as per
sons oi renncment enjoy.
The delightfully pleasing colors of the
main dining-room are an invitation for
the guest to linger longer and enjoy the
delicacies or lire to their fullest extent.
Colonial Effects Se-cured.
In the parlors and dining-rooms even
the tiall pictures are of the same type,
and subjects, and frames are duplicates
of the pictures used In the colonial homes
of the Washington era. The blending of
shades and colors throughout Is most ar
tistic Each floor has a shade of carpet pe
culiar to Itself, and the hangings har
monize with the carpets. The wall papers
and other decorations were worked out
in view of the shades that would bo used
on each floor.
While the result attained is extremely
pleasing to the eye and to the easthetic
sense, there is a feeling throughout the
building of decided repose and comfort
aa well as luxury. Nothing Is garish
and nothing offends the sense of har
mony, which the more artistic man or
woman of to-day would expect to find
In such a place.
Though the hotel la not one of the
largest In tha country. It may be .said
with confidence that It presents those
features which are most attractive to
very quiet and refined people, the home-
HKe air or the entire place probably being
its cnier attraction. Experts In such
matters who have passed upon the tout
ensemble express the opinion that there
has not yet been In America anything
more satisfactory In the general and spe
