Architects and builders all over town io
port that building for tho ensuing year Is
very encouraging and tho prospects aro that
a much larger amount will be expended this
year llian ever before.
In a ucnoral way It may be staled that
tlicro will be, Dcsldcs a tmpibcr of largo
business houses, a greater number of finer
residences put up than In any previous
year, a large number already having been
begun on and it greater number existing
ou Jiapcr In tho hands of both.
In an Interview with Mr. Charles I.nng
lcy. ono of tho leadlnt: builders of this city,
and president of tho Master Builders' Asso
ciation. Mr. I.angtoy said: "To Judge by
tho Indications, 1 havo po doubt that tho
liulldln;' this year will for exceed that of'
last. Wlillo tho season will bo n llttlo later
than usual, on account of tho weather,
noverthelces'whcii It begins It IU go with
Mr. O. M. Fague, manager for Robertson
A lllackford, says; i'You wnnt to know
what I think tho prospects are for building
lhls)car. Well, I'll tell you. I think It Is
exceptionally good, Inquiries received
this week amount to about twlco that or
Inst week, audi have no doubt that, -11 a
month or two, real estatu and building will
be nt Its rcnltii."
AXOTIIFIt PINT. nWRI.MSO.
A permit was taken out last week by
Architect John Frazcr to erect a three
story and basement ilwclllng-liotiso -on
Rhode Island avenue, between Fourteenth
ami-Fifteenth sticcts, for Mr. A, II. Drown.
The Imlldlitg will be built of Indltiua lime
stone, and cpst about 20,000. It will show
a frontago of.twcntj-llvo feet, and run back
a distance of sovonty-twofcot, ' An octagiln
lav, on the right hand sldo of the hulldliij;,
will run from the ground to tbo third floor,
and end with n balcony of stone," Inter
spersed with a wrought Iron ralllug.

On tho first floor will bo the parlor,
dining-room, ball, Kitchen and pantry;
second will be the ofllce and bcdinoius and
bath. Tho house will bo llnlshcd through
out with bard-wood finish.
MOIIE ArAIlTMENT HOUSES.
The mania for apartment houses seems to
have at last struck Washington. In a few
weeks tho Morton Flats, comer Fifteenth
and II streets, will be finished, and it Is
probablo that work upon the Arao annex
will begin lu n month. Tlicro Is also con
siderable talk-about tho Improvement of the
Randall House, corner Pennsylvania avenuo
and Fifteenth street, but nothing deflnlto
has been dono. A. II. Mullctt has drawn
the plans, and ho will probably be the
architect If It Is erected.
OioundwlU be broken tlio first of next
week for tho new apartment hoitso for Mr.
W. C. Hill, on I street, between Fifteenth
and Sixteenth streets. It will bo an Ir
ehnpo lot, and havo a frontago of 53 feet
on I street and run back a distance ol
14S feet. The building will be seven stories
high nnd bu scml-fircproof. Stono will run
to the second story nud the balance will bo
made of selected press brick, with stone
The utrancc will bo In tbo centre of tho
building! and on either side a bayJwlmlow,
wblcli'will run to the sixth story and ter
minate with a stone balcony for thusov
cnth floor. Over tho cntranco on tbo sec
ond story there will also bo a stone, which
runs from one bay to the other. On the
fouith floor a wrought-iron balcony will
run ncross tho wholo front of tho building.
Over the cntranco on each floor will run a
panel of carved stono. Loggia treatment
will be for tho soveutb story. Tho base
ment floor will bo composed of the cafe,
billiard-room, Mine-room, store-room and
Ou tho first floor will be tbo public par

apartmehtB, comprising two bed-rooms,
parlor and bath. The ether six floors w 111
contain seven suites of rooms each. The
house will bo fitted throughout with opcu
fireplaces, mantels, tiles and grates. Tho
cost will be lu tho neighborhood of $100,000.
UENEllAL JEmilM' NEW HOUSE.
Among the njiw and handsome houses
recently built In the northwest section of
our city Is that of General N. L. Jeffries,
In which the arcbitcct, A. Tl. Mullctt, has
arranged a magnificent Interior. Tho first
floor Is spacious and admirably adapted for
entertaining. Upon entering tho'vcstlbulo
the unique celling first attracts tho visitor.
It Is treated In a scrollwork of rod, with a
background of gold, with waves of that color
fllllng.lu the shadows, and tho plaster cor
nices sic In rich, warm and harmonizing
Tho vestibule leads Into tho foyer, which
is an amply proportioned apartment, wain
eoted In dark mahogany, tho walls hung
with a dainty shade of pink satin damask,
and the celling beautifully treated tn shades
of palest pink and yellow. Tho plastic
garland work and a centre-piece, so deli
cate as to be scarcely inoro than u tracery,
aro outlined In gold. A grand staircase,
springing from hugoi mahogany plllers,
leads to tho upper stories. Tho drawing
loom underwork" of- maple, walls hung
from celling to floor with palest blue satin
damask of au Adams pattern, and ceiling a
dream of daluty tones of silver color,
heighten and carries out the design, which
gradually reveals Itself to the beholder.
Tbo effect is charming and novel.
The dining room Is a stately and Impos
ing apartment and Is said to bo ouo of tbo
handsomest lu Washington. It Is waln
cotcd lu oak and tho inaSslvo mautols and
sideboard aro built lu tho wall, Tbolattcr
Is nine feet wide and extends to tho celling.
The walls aro hung In tapestry of a, design
In fruits grapes, pears, apples, tc being
tliown In soft tones of their natural color,
which, with the oak, gives a very pleasing
effect. The celling Is heavily beamed and
laid off In largo panols, which aro of plas
tic work In bold relief and treated In shades
of ollvo and antlquo popper. It Is some
thing entirely original lu this kind of work.
The carpet Is Persian In pattern and color
ing, aim harmonizes very well with the rest
of tho room. The chambers aro nil largo,
airy and well lighted, Tho decorating re
flects considerable credit upon Mr. Frank
lin LaiigstalT, tho decorator, aud shows
what admirable and artistic tasto this gen
tleman has. Ho is also doing Mr. A. T.
Jlrltton's houso next door, a description of
Which will coinu out later.
A DECIDED Oil NAMEST.
The Sim building will bo ornamented In
afow'daysbya largo bay window which
Will bo built on tho ground floor and pro
ject about three feet from the main build
ing. It will bo mado of solid glass and
Iron. A. I). .Mullctt Is the architect. Mr,
Mullctt Is also tho architect for thudar
Held Hospital Improvements.
WHAT CONOItESSSHOUbD DO,
("Washlugtou as a city 'Is lu Its infancy
compared to what It will bo ten years
hciico," remarked Thomas O. Hensoy. "Tho
Government should secure thu laud along
Dock Creek for a public park at once, aud
tho present public paiks Bhould not boused
for building publlo buildings, but
Bhould bo leservid for breathing
pluces for the future Iho streets lu
suburban subdivisions should bo made to
conform to tlio streets of tho city, providing
for the Immediate condemnation of the
same and proper compcusatlou to property
owners. A site for a city postofllco siiould
bo secured at once w Ithout regard to tac
tions or tlio Interests of particular Indi
viduals." "The coming real estate season Is looked
forward to with great expectations by all
dealers," remarked Mr. II. F. Gilbert,
senior member ot,-tha llrm of I), F, (lllbert
t Co., yesterday, to u CiiiTio representa

section of the city. Washington real estate,
generally, Is on a better basis than ever be

For sale by
Increasing values and every Indication that

generally, Mr. (lllbert says no better de
scription con be given of Washington's
suburbs than that of Dr. It. U. Flower nt
llnslon lu tho "American Spectator,"
which Is herewith printed!

and increasing fashion. As tho Capital of
tho nation and tho Capital of tho greatest
of tho world, It must always bo a city of

Many of them will llvo in tho city propcr,ln

Homo of our cities havo very beautiful
suburbs aud when such Is tho case they fill
up with thoso seeking the happy, doublo or
combined life of city and country kuown as
tho. suburban life. On both sides of Long
Island Sound and up tho nudsou River for
twenty roues are a succession 01 suouroan
towns, tho homes of tho vast armies which
throng tho Inctropfills every day. For
twenty miles, In all directions from Boston,
Is a network of cities aud towns (tho Bos
ton suburbs). From theso suburbs como
half n million of pcoplo every luorulng Into
our city In pursuit of their various callings.
Philadelphia truthfully boasts of her
suburbs, and'Daltlraoro claims soma merit.
Rut when It comes to beautiful suburbs,
mado by the Infinite, hand of the Infinite
Architect, inoro beautiful than tho brnln of
man could conceive or his wisdom fully
appreciate. It Is my sincere belief that sur
rounding the great Capital of our Nation
are the most beautiful, picturesque and
romantic locations to be found around or
near any large city In tho world.
Thcro aro many beautiful suburban sites
which are being rapidly settled close to tho
city of Washington. Some of these aro
worthy of special mention and elaborate
Tho suburban town I wish specially to
sneak of,-aud the most beautiful suburb of
the capital Is
situated four or llvo miles uorth of tbo city,
the city Itself rapidly extending to it. A
portion of the park Is In the District of Co
lumbia, and a part In the State of Mary
laud, "Each In benuty with tho other vicing,
To excel In grandeur ever trying,"
Takonia Park Is 400 feet higher than
' Washington, an eminence of great beauty,
from elevations on tho summit of which
you view all tho varied beauties of tho Po
tomac. Tho word Takoma Is of Indian
origin, aud though varying slightly In Its
meaning with tho different tribes, always
meant something beautiful. With tho old
tribes of tho Northwest, Takoma meant
heaven, a place of happiness, a placo of
rest. With tho Sioux Indians, Takoma
means beauties high up, they using tho
word to represent beauties of sunrise or
sunset, beauties In tho sky. With the Choc
taw and Cherokco Indians, Takoma meant
beautiful rest, or rest amid great beauties
and elevations. With tho Ills Foot, tho
Indians most poetical of tho Red Trlbos.
Takoma meant musical haven, or haven of
music, bwect liillabys, gontlo bongs.
Strictly speaking, Takonia Park of Wash
ington Is tho fulfilment of all theso defini
tions It Is a haven, a heaven, high, lofty,
a place 01 rci, 01 ueaiuy.
"Tho first to seo the blush of dawn,
'the last to seo Its parting ray,"
a natural park of raro and varied beauties,
vibrating with nature's music from tho
pines tho rill, tho springs, nnd falls,
"Which sine In naturo's way,

Their songs of pralso."
Takoma Park' Is u natural park of several
hundred acres, owned by numerous
wealthy pcoplo. Thero are already some
miles of streets, avenues and boulevards
laid out, tho Illicit drives of Washington.
A largo number of residences weio built
last year, and arrangements have already
been made for thu building of nearly two
hundred mora the coming season. Thcro Is
every reason to believe that Takoma Park
will soon become tho most fashionable,
wealthy suburb of Washington, as It Is
already tho most beautiful. It Is no ex
aggeration to say that Takoma Park is des
tined to become, at an early day, ono of tho
most fashionable, wealthy resorts of tho
world. For fashion, It will bo a Saratoga;
for comfort, a Newport; for excitement, a
Long Branch; for health, a Badeii-lladcii.
Why a Saratoga of fashion? lleeausu for
beauty, grandeur, varied sceneries of great
splendor, Takoma Park surpasses uny of
tho ten thousand choice, locations In our
beautiful country, and, best of all, this
beautiful park, by tho lullnlto inadu for Ills
finite children, Is at thu vciy door of a largo
und growing city,
Why a Newport of comfort, and Dadcn
Baden of health f Because nature has
mado It a placo of great beauty and many
charms, and surrounded It with tho mur
murs of living waters. In tho heart of Ta

soda springs, aud springs of pure waters.
These pure water springs aro said to bo tho

vegetable matter whatever, absolutely pure.

Tho eternal roar of thoso water, can o ily
bo likened to tho surging, swelling roar of
Ihc ocean, as It churns, foams ami dashes
against tho shore. For company In tho day
they roar nnd murmur, to Insplro sleep nt
night they murmur. and roar, nud nature
has never suggested a remedy more ef
fectual In tho cure of Insomnia than tho roar
of waters. The hills on either side, which
rise abruptly for over two huiidrud feet,
aro covered with a forest of over forty dlf
fcrelit kinds Of trees.
Thero Is no malaria In this park, and has
tietcr beert, -It would be almost Impossible
for malaria or other climatic diseases to ex

pure nlr, aud abounding with the fragrant,
balmy emanation from tlio plno hills.
In tho summer thn nights nto always
cool, about thu same, temperature as In the
mountains of tho great West, or on tho
New England coast. It Is stated by a
florist ol high authority, that n gi eater

than In any other locality In America, Tho

full of birds. From tho hills of Takoma
you overlook Washington, thu Soldiers'

tho New'Natlonal Park, which, when com

nnd, when completed, will rival the parks
of Iho Cirsnrs.
Adjoining Takonia Is now being built thu

tho many disagreeable summer Insects
which mako unpleasant almost all resorts.
Waters, living waters of every kind from
living springs, tho cure of diseases many,
and the antldnto of numerous pains.
It can ho truthfully said, without any
exaggeration, that tlieso are among tho
finest springs of any country, una the
waters the purest ever known. Tho mineral
springs nro very fiue,thofrcsh water springs
aro chemically pure, containing no Vegeta

a heavy body of talc, and beneath this tale
a heavy body.of purpwhlto sand, through
Which theso waters coinorenderliig them

'Ihcso medicinal spring) and springs of
puro water, properly opened up, ought to
euro the major portion of the ills aud
diseases of millions n year; in fact, thcro
aro but few diseases that tho waters of
theso springs will not relieve. Tn think
that these sprlogs, theso falls and lofty
eminences of unsurpassed niettircsnuo sur

Capital. Nothing has over been dono to
call tbp attention of tho world to Takoma
Park, but the hour Is at hand when ovcry
ouo who knows of Washington must know
of Takoma Park, and ovcry ono who visits
tho East will bo drawn to this.

Happy must ho tho life of those fortunate
enough to live In Takoma Park, enjoying
all tho advantages of a city, with the
luxuries of a suburban life. Sweet 'shall

and their dust reposing beneath thu bend

In reinoto regions, -where giant moun

But here, where the capital of the groat
