CAPITAL TO BECOME THE WORLD'S
MOST BEAUTIFUL CITY.
The Attainment of the Ideals or the
Founders at L.vst in Sight - l'rojectt
for the Development of livery 1'hane
of the Pectoral Capital's Equipment.
When a little less than a year ago
the senate directed its district com
mittee to consider the question of de
veloping the park system of the cap
ital the hope was born in the breasts
of progressive Washingtonians who
had labored for years for the attain
ment of the ideals of the founders of
the Federal city that at last achieve
ment was within sight. As the scope
of te work undertaken by the commit
tee and the personnel of the commis
sion of experts it created became
known this hope was brightened into
Now that the commission has fin
ished its task and its report has been
laid before the senate with the warm
arproval of the committee itself there
is no longer reason to fear that the
oid Lap-hazard, hit-or-raiss methods
of capital making will be followed.
These reports, though not yot adopted
by congress, or, given form in legis
lation even in part, may bo regarded
as the new foundation stones of thc
Washington that is to become the
world's most beautiful city.
Broad and comprehensive, respect
ful of the principles underlying the
original plans of the founders yet dar
ing in the proposal of new projects in
harmony with the old, regardful of
only the single precept to make th';
most of Washington's opportunities
for beauty and impressiveness, the
plans contemplate a treatment of
parks, buildings, driveways, memori
als, water front nnd lakes whica can
not be duplicated elsewhere in the
world with tiie same splendid effect.
They recognize the exceptional facili
ties for adornment afforded by the
site of the capital flanked by two large
streams and buttressed by noble hills.
The marvel is that thc progressive,
patriotic men who have been coming
to the halls of congress for the past
century have not more clearly recog
nized the possibilities lying in the way
of the capital-makers have not turned
their energies resolutely to the task
of utilizing them to the full, have not
rescured the grand original plan from
its repressive, inharmonious setting
which the negligence and indifferent
"practicality" of generations has pro
duced. But many great questions have
demanded solution during the trying
decades of national building and pres
ervation and expansion, and the capi
tal, regarded as the mere house ac
commodating the developing machin
ery of the government, has had to
grow hap hazard, caring for itself In
infancy and in youth and middle age.
Now the Washington of ripe years
is to be at last recognized by the na
tion. Its character as the centre cf
national activity, tho expression of
national thought and ideals, is to be
established. It must bo grand and
beautiful, else it will fall short of tho
American standards. Where now it
is tawdry and shows the signs of the
make-shift expediency of the past, it
must be given artistic strength. Where
neglect has permitted incongruities to
crowd the very shadows of the great
structures of governmental need, it
must be made harmoniously true in
every detail and.In all places.
The park commission' has wisely
conceived its mission one of more than
mere landscape gardening. It has
proposed projects for the develop
ment of every phase of the capital's
equipment. The mall is to be cleared
-of its incumbrances and given new
and beautiful features of artistic
adornment. A great memorial to Lin
coln is to stand at an axial point, com
manding the approaches to the me
morial bridge. Potomac Park and a
great park driveway leading into the
Rock Creek valley. This valley is to
be reclaimed from its deplorable state,
to become a beauty spot and a means
of access to the two great parks above.
Series of driveways wil permit con
tinuous communication between a
chain of large public reservation.?,
along Ecenes of artistic landscape gar
dening and passing handsome public
structures. The miasmatic Anacostia
is to become a water and land park,
affording pleasure and recreation to the
people where now it poisons them. Po
tomac park is to blossom into a place
of beauty and public enjoyment. The
river front, now disgracefully shabby,
wil become neat and attractive. Tho
city will be girdled by drives an2
parks which cannot be elsewhere ap
proached for extent or utility, or beau
ty, or accessibility. At the very doors
of all the people will lie expanses cf
space filled with trees and flowers and
lawns to delight the eye and refresh
the soul and body.
On this great system of parks a
comprehensive scheme of public build
ings will be based, permitting practi
cally endless extension and unlimited
development as the government's
needs increase. The capitol grounds
are to be flanked only by public build
ings, while around Lafayette square
will arise a great series of beautiful
structurer, giving in themselves a dis
tinctive character to Washington as a
centre of American art and architec
ture. The great triangle between
Pennsylivania avenue and the mall
will bc eventually ocupied in part by
buildings of national and municipal
uses, surrounded by park approaches
and giving a new character to the
southern side of the capital's grandest
street and great historic parade
ground. Recreation grounds are to be
provided near the water, where mod
ern public bathing facilities will be
afforded. Places are designated for
structures of memorial art which pos
terity may plan as occasions arise, the
general scheme to be harmonious and
Two chief points are to be borne in
mind in appraising the work of the
park commission. It was instrumen
tal In securing an ideal solution of the
railroad problem to give Washington
a monumental union station in a place
where it will blend with the other
great public improvements, and it has
established the principle of meantain
tpg artistic as well as a practical rela
tionship between thc architectural and
the landscape features of the capital.
The new plan, modernizing and sun
plementing thc original project of
L'Enfant, wil become the guide to all
future improvements. By adopting
this scheme now, leaving its compo
nents to be worked out in detail as
necessities and opportunities arise,
congress will demonstrate its foresight
and its wisdom as well as its intelli
gent pride in thc national capital.

"You would hardly think," fitiid a
dealer in fancy goods as he held up a
atring of glass beads, each as big as a
cherry, made in imitation pearls, says
the New York Times, "that to put the
pearl tint and luster on each one of
these little globes the lives of at least
15 beautiful fish had to be sacrificed,
would you? But such is the fact, and
although the beads are made in Ven

a catch of at least 500 of these fish and

the carp family, and has a glistening

things, his name Salvador Jacquin.
placed a number of bleak in an aequa
Hum that he might take note of their
habits. After they had been in the ac
quarium some time ne saw that the
water took on a pearly hue.
"Believing that this was communi
cated by washings from the scales of
the fish, the Venetian observer experi
mented. Ho found that water could
be so densely charged with the tint
from thc fish scales that glass, when
dipped into it and allowed to dry, had
all the outward hues of a pearl. He
coated glass beads with thc substance,
and thc counterfeits were readily ac
cepted as genuine pearls.
"The coating of these beads, it was
found, though, had but slight resist
ance to friction and soon disappeared
from the surface of thc beads. As
sured that a large and profitable de
mand for them would result if he could
fix the pearly lustre on the beads so it
would defy friction, Jacquin conceived
the idea of having the globes blown
hollow and then attaching the fish
scale solution to the inner surface.
This was a success from the start, and
the glass pearl business got its first
"It requires the scales of 4000 bleak
to make half a pint of the liquid pearl.
The fish are more easily caught than
our menhaden. The scales are re
moved and soaked in tepid water.
"The utility of the liquid was im
proved some yoars ago by the addition
of a small quantity of sal ammoniac m
and isingless to it. These gave it a
closer and firmer set to the glass and
increased the lustre. The liquid is
introduced inside the hollow glass
bead by. means of a small tube, and
when it is dry a coating of transpar
ent wax is run over it.
"Fortunately for the race of bleaks,
the trade in those beads, pretty and
cheap as they are, is not so alarmingly
large that extinction cf the yielders of
the pearl tint is imminent. There aro
apparently just as many bleak in tl'e
Adriatic now as there were two cen
turies and a half ago, and more than
likely there will be just as many two
centuries hence as now."

It is curious to watch the faces of
people as they enter the great doors
of St. Peter's at Rome ana push back
the heavy leathern curtains that keep
out the noise and the air, and find
themselves In tho presence of the
most impressive spectacle on earth,
as Byron said:
Power, Glory, strength and beauty
all are aisled
In this eternal ark of worsnip.
It is easy to detect those who have
never been there before, and those
who have become accustomed to its
magnitude and gorgeousness. It re
quires several visits to adjust the vi
sion and the mind to its collossal pro
portions and brilliant decorations, and
enable them to realize the vastness
and the beauty of the scene. The more
frequently you visit St. Peter's Ca

you are enabled to drink in with com

Overeating nnri Morality.
At a recent purity congress held In
Chicago a vegetarian delegate rea? a
curious paper on diet. He stated tnac
much of the immorality in the world
was due to the eating of animal food.
"The cook.", he said, "often leads to
more drunkenness and excess tnan tho
saloon keeper. Highly seasoned, rich
animal foods lead to indigestion and
ill health. Ill health weakens the
will, and a weak will breaks down the
moral character. Total cepravily is
often nothing but total indigestion."
This reasoning reminds ore of the
old conundrum, "Why is home like a
baby?" the answer being, "Because
home is where tho heart is; the heart
is in the chest; a chest is a box, box

There is a billiard-table in London at
tho present moment that can boast of
a life time of two centuries and a long
acquaintance with men who have made
history. It belonged originally to
Louis XIV., passed into the possession
of Napoleon L, and now in its old age,
is on exhibition in Soho square. This
celebrated table is smaller than an

"Enoch Emory came to Siberia from
Cape Cod forty years ago. Ho was

"American agricultural machines
have enjoyed such an established repu
tation that it has lo.ig been a paying
business to imitate them. The com
plaint now is that many cheap and in
ferior machines, mostly made in Ger
many from American models, are on
the market. Since the retallator*
tariff took effect. Feb. 7 (20)', 190*
many American machines come via
Germany, it Is asserted nil American

"At present there ia no great de

money is scarce, the government ia
closing down on credit, and the con
dition of the Siberian peasant farmer

to teach the peasant how to farm. In

rather than by theory. The Siberian
peasant ls not used to severe and un

many holidays. Lately some highly
colored reports have readied us from
America as to what Siberia was cap
able of doing in an agricultural way.
It is suggested that American flour
mills on thc raciflc coast will soon be
closed in consea.uence of tho millions

"Notwithstanding the cheap trans
portation offered emigrants and the
development of virgin soils, famine
seems a periodical visitor, and it ls
here today. The central governments
are literally besieged with clamors for
bread, for medicine, for work, grain,
hay-anything. Tomsk, Perm. Ker

this demand. It is safe to say that
the United States need have no im
mediate fear of competition from this
quarter, whether lt be in grain or ma
chinery, canned goods or cotton goods,
production of gold, or building of
ships. The new tariff has caused a
rise in the price of all necessaries. It

taken. Such a morning dip should
not be continued longar than from
three to five minutes, and should be
instantly followed by brisk rubbing
with friction towels in order to put
the skin in a glow.
The best authorities seem to agree
that all the ad vant? gos that come
from a sea bath can be secured in
from five to eight minutes. It is also
desirable to keep up brisk exercise
in sea bathing in order to gain the
greatest benefit from it.

A bag of bran and orris root, soaked
in the water, gives the bather the

When one feels chilly after bathing
it is a sure indication that there has
been no reaction of the skin, and that
it is not safe to indulge in so cold a
bath. Such peoples hould take baths
at night at a tepid temperature. And
if a morning bath is also desirable, it
should be at least slightly warmed, of
short duration and a brisk rubbing.

No Sails In Suez Canal.
Consul General Long reports from
Cairo, in reply to an inquiry from the
department relative to the extent cf
the Suez canal is used by sailing ves
sels, that Comte Charles de Serlonne,
superior agent In Egypt of the Suez
Canal Company, has given him the fol
"No sailing vessels have crossed
the canal since 1874 or 1875. except
during the time of tho Turko-Runsian
war of 1877-78. At that time sailing
vessels arrived from Calcutta with In
dian troops; but for the last ten years
no sea-going sailing vessel has crossed
the canal. Somotlmes trains of coal

"Thc absence of sailing vessels In

effectually discouraged further at

Canal Company believe that the con

opened to navigation in 18G9, has been
an impetus to steam navigation
throughout the world."-New York
