This Natural lluuutle of tho Country
Northeast of tho City.
'J'ho tally frosts that mc lcddening tho
leuves nro giving to Washington sub
111.l1.1u surroundings u new glory theso
early fall duys. City people who never
get outside the city's bounduiics know
little ot tho beauties of Wellington. Pino
buildings can bo erected anywhere. But
It would bother ono to find a eitv in this
countiy so completely sui rounded by bo
beautiful a bubtuban region that is bo
readily ucccssiblo us Wabhinutoii. Across
tho IVtomao aio tho neglected Virginia,
kills. Koithwuril and westward arc tho
alicady fast liuilding up legions toward
which people who como mul ko in car
riages are tiuniug their eyes, when
looking for subtu bun homes.
Hut northcabtwiiHl acioss the pellucid
Blanch is a icgluu lo which nature has
been paitlriilaily kind, tliough it has
been but little boomed us biibutbau real
estate.
It beems odd tint the advantages of
this iieculiarly ltivoicd hcctlon of tho
District as a subiiibau icstdence have
In tho past been bo little nppieciated.
It is so near the city, bo pleasant a loca
tion, and theio has been so little aitili
cial inilatlou of real estate piircs that
the wonder is that the hills arc. not cov
ried with cottages At a half houi after
nine o'clock this morning n Otitic re-
poiter was uuiaiing tue erisji rouutiy
uir and gathering led and gold leaves
on a hill that looked down on the Capitol,
nnd befoio ten o'clock the leacs weto
in his debit befoio him as ho wrote this
mticle.
Years, aye, way back In the thiitlcs,
Capt, William Kenning, whom tlnmo
linnor said was a bold oceanio piivutcei
though this Mime dame rumor would have
said ho -was a pirate If ho had been caught
unil hung from somo bhlp's ynul aim saw
and liked the beauties of those Maryland
hills, and ho bought homo thousand actcs
ol them witii his ill-got gold and mado the
bomo of his old ago thcie. He'vYus a jolly,
loinul, red-faced Englishman, and the old
11 unties that have lived on the further
bank of tho Btunch all their lives will tell
rou that bold Capt. Bciiuing buried a
' heap or gold" 1111(101' the led holl ol thu
hills, and that oveiy shiney doubloon of it
com) a human lllc.
But thib is only n legend a myth.
What ib known is that Cnpt. Banning
made hero hi.s homo and built his biidge,
which, by tho way, was his own, and
that the legion about Bcnning's Station
is ouo of the prettiest, and is going to bo
one of tho best, places to livo in in tho
District of Columbia. Ever blnco Union-
town or Aiuicostin bcEtin to bo a town
people hnvo been giudually awakening
to tho beauties of the south bank of thu
Laistern Branch. But it has been u slow
awakening. A glaneu at a map of the
District will show you how this countiy
has been building up cistvvaid. G'ood
Hope. Potomac City. K'istnn, Lincoln,
Burrvllle, Garilcld, all promising littlo
knots of houses, show tho eustwnid tiead
of improvement.
Tho road that leads out from Mary
land avenue, across tho bridge that Capt.
Penning built, will take you ijito the gem
poll ion of tills legion. East of this
road, Bonnlng'b load, is another called
tho Sheiill load, that 111ns past, the im
meiiHt old oak that maiks the 1101th
custcin corner ol the District of Colum
bia. Tliis tieo 1ms been a landmaik for
veins. Tlio suiveyois found it glowing
lubt wheie tlicy minted to plant the
6tc 10 pillar that would mark the corner
of the tui miles snuaie, and they spaied
It. It is still theio, standing lit the
center of tlio load, the wagon tiueks
turning to tho lolt to avoid It, and tells

the lcpoitei was theio this moiniug ho
drove between busy gangs of men and
horses engaged in this work that tho
impiovemcnt iu this section demanded.
A littlo wav farther down the road,
outsitio the Dlstiict line. Commissioner
Webb has bought him 11 Hue countiy
place.
Turning shaiply to the light, just bo
fore reaching the old oak that marks the
District line, and following a -winding
road through tho road beside which the
blood red of tho sumacs contiast vividly
with tlio dark green of the eeduis, all
planted by nature's kindly hand, ono
conies out on tho edge of one ot tho scries
of bills in tho collection of houses that
iorm Buirvillo. Below is a bio.ul, level
bt retch ot Watt's Branch Valley, through
which Watt's Branch tuukes its way to
the Eastern Branch. Tlunugh this
valley runs the Southern Maiyland Ifail
io.id, the mils ovci grown with vines and
cieepeis.
Tlio road was built years ago, nnd
the lower end of it is being opciatcd.
Its object was the cairying of coal
down to tho prospecting coaling sta
tion at Point Lookout, but a disagicc
ment among tho directors btopped opein
tlons, and now the New York people,
who own a controlling pait ot tho
stock, are trying to " lreec out1 the ono
or two Washington ntockholdcis. As soon
as this ib done the road will piobably
bo put in operation,, and the steel rails
through Watt'b Branch Valley will bo
burnished by the whirling wheels of
laden cais. To tho right, as ono stands
on the hill on which Bunvillc is peiched,
is Lincoln, nnd near at hand is the gioup
ot twenty or so neat fiamc houses that
Dr. Dcano has built. Acrosb tho valley
is a long hill, thickly covered witli led
nnd gold-clothed trees, save whero
streets havo been out through.
This is Giant I'aik, a new sub-division
that, 0. A. McEucn, of 1420 F street,
h"n piep.ued tar homch for common peo
ple who mo not prepared to build manor
houses on big fauns, but who want to
have homes outside tllie city.
Tlio track embraces bomo hundred find
sovcnty-flvo acres, most of which has
alicady been cut ujj into lots. Hundreds
of people are buying these lots, nnd
property In tlio immediate, neighborhood
has been bought and sold three ol four
times over at doubled prices. Adjoin
ing Grant I'aik is Mrs. Manninc's houso
that bits upon the spur of a hill two
hundred and eighty fcut above tidewater.
From it you look down on tho city, and
in winter when the tiees arc baro Alex
ndrhi is easily visublc. There is a propo
sition nfoot to placo tho proposed gills'
refonn school heie. and it would cer-
, tulnly bo an excellent place as it is
niKiicr iiiinvu inu iwcwuicr man niu

Malaiia? Not a bit. Tho Signal
Service recoids show that during the
summer months the prevailing winds in
tho DistiUit blow from tho south 1101th
watd toward the oity and away from tills
fuvoied region over the biauch. In war
times these hills mound heie weio dotted
over with foits, Watt's Biauch Valley
being especially well foitilied, as It was
expected that Eatly would attack tho
capital that way in fact, ho did sluit
to. Bight by Mis. Manning's house tho
ginss-grown ramparts ol Foit Malum me

Mis. Manning's placo is called 1'iospect

" L'idy Margaief' u Scotch historical
play founded on Charles Gibbons' great
stoiy, by Ilcmy Leo and Georgo II.
Jossop, was given its initial production
last night by Miss Eillo Ellslcr and her
company at Albaugh's, and it met with
a very gratifying leccption. 'Iliero wero
evident many ot tho Hist pioduction's
chaiactciistics and tlieio weio lacking
the ease, action and knovvlcdue ol lines
which will como witli fiequeiit lepeti
tion, and the play is longer than' is
necessaiy, but with all theso diawbacks
it wont successfully and gave undcniabln
proof of being a strong play. Miss
Ellslcr, as " Lady Marsaicl," easily took
the honors and sho did somo beautiful
woik. She has the repiessivo iauulty
which so few anticsses have, and she is
absolutely Licking in taut. Not less pleas
ing than hoi tiaglo noting was her
interptetation of tho ).iit ot " Mncgle,"
the coinoral's sweetheart, with a Scotch
song wliich was an encore. At the end
of tho f 0111 th act, when her best woik
was done, she was lowardcd by four
recalVs. Air. Weston, as Sir Ifobeitv
played his jiait with Intense tceliiiK, but
Mr. Weston's lorto is polite comedy, nnd
Mr. Brltsidc in " Judge Not" is as pleas
ant n success ns his Sir Bobcrt is not.
Miss Liudermnn's Mary was quite 11
charming bit of Kiilishness. Dyko
Brook, as Sergeant Flvnn. was Iiish to
thu backbone. Mr. Chippendale's Doe
tor will bo better when ho has handled
it longer, nnd Mr. Walton, as the Scotch
Earl, is a line looking specimen of man
hood in bis kilt and tnituu. The other
ehnractcih weio moio or less good and
"Lady Mnrgaiet" will, if jriu'ii .1 fair
chance, dovelop into n play iu which
audiences will havo an nbldinc inteiest.

AT GEN. LOGAN'S TOMB.
Tho Lonely Vigil Kept By the United
States Quard.
THE NEW MORTUARY CHAPEL.
Tho formal Dedication to Occur on Mrs,
I.iiBim'fl ltatiirii l'rom lliirope,
Tho military gutlrd which was placed
twenty months ago over tlio tomb in Bock
Cieelf Ccm.'lerj, where leposo tlio remains
ot Gen. John A. Logan, still keeps vigil
by the Hide of thu dcud. It Is iiti tiiiusiuil
occurrence for tlio Goveriunent to guard 11
dead soldier's giave constlTntly for nearly
two yen is. Night and day. through niu
and shine, summer's seoichlug bieath nnd
w Intel's hitler blasts, tho ineasiucd tiamp
ot an aimed sentry has stlried the solemn
stillness of the vnttlt where tlio heio lies
Such a night as night before last is a
dreary one for the guard. The ruin fell
in u steady drizzle, and the wind bl.-w
cold and cutting from the N'oith. The
night was murky ns the mist over tins
Stygian Kivcr, nnd the cemetery lay
wiapned in u sepulchral gloom almost
tangible.
The hollow sweep of the wind through
the big trees nnd tho clear putter, patter,
patter of the mill on tho dead Ieavis
diowued tlio step of tlio sentinel us,
wiuppcd in his lubber uout, with musket
ut a carry, ho paced his lonely beat in
front of the vault. A lantern on 11 post
in liotit ot the tomb shed 11 feeble and
flickering light for u few feel, around,
but It served only to deepen ihe shadows
through which the dark form of the sen
tiy moved. Across tho cauiago dtivu,
somo thirty feet away, stood 11 smnll
aimy tent, and through tlio hnlf-opeiied
Map slicamcd 11 iay of light which shone
upon the giotnul outside und made dia
monds ot the lain (hops on the grass,
Inside tlio tent a clieety picturo wns
picsented, in happy contmst to tho gtoom
without. A small stove iu tho renter
irlowed like 11 furnace and heated tlio
whole place, nnd tho merry bubble ot a
coircc-pot Oil the tup of the stovo was
good company in ltsull for the young
soldier who lay bttctciied out on nn lion
cot. In the comer wns a .small table with
11 lump on It and some books. A big
navy six-shooter levolvcr lay close at
hand and two guns leaned ugalust tlio
side of the tent, with u onitridgo bov
hanging from the shelf. Ono felt cosy
nnd comfoitublo iu there, warmed by the
grateful heat and listening to the beat
of the lain upon the eunvuss und the
creaking ol tho ticeb us they bow to tho
touch ol tho 1101th wind.
'Iho lonely sentinel outside casts
many a wistful glance at tho tent, and
mills eagerly at the appetiing odor of
the codec which comes to him. At 10
o'ljlock the crunch of henry boots on tho
gntveled roadway Is henid, and utulw.ut
beigount iotd comes ilown through, the
lain and mizzle, followed by two men
who lellcvo the two on guaid, these in
tutu being lclievod four hums alter
wind. 'J'ho guaid eoti'-isth ot n detail ot seven
men fiom the Third Artillery nt tho
Wushlngton Barracks Sergeant Tord
and privates Timm, Lociskoy, Hamilton,
Gibson, Caimodea and Bondra. They
arc comfortnblj eiunrtcred nt the Sol
dicis' Home, nnd the tent is occupied
only by tho guaid on duty by tho vault.
1 be lcmalny ot Gen. Logan He In nn
iron casket in 1I10 vestibule ot tlio vault
belonging to Mrs. Hutchinson, widow
of the Into piesidi'nt of tho Alaska Fur
Company. An Ameiicnn (lug drupes tho
euskct, which is nlmost hidden from
view benenth floral oHVriugs:
Mrs. Logan drives out to the cemetery
every few- days and renews the (lowers.
She knows the members of the guard by
nnme, nnd nlways has a kind greeting
for Uiem. Tlio guard ikes not grow
lonesome, for every day people come out,
mainly vlsitois to the oity, und stand
witli bared bends befoio the glutei! door
of ihe tomb.
The guaid has been retained much
longer than w.is expected oil account of
Mis. Logan's fears that tho resting placo
ol her husband would be dlstuibed by
ghonlisli muiaudcrs. In a month or sK
weeks, howcvei. the leamins will bo re
moved and placed in tho lnorttiniy chapel
which Mrs. Logan is having elected in
tho National Cemetery ot tlio Soldiets'
Homo, at 11 cost of SIS, 000. It bus been
in course of constiuction some time and
will soon bo ready to receive the remains.
Tlio chapel just visible thiough a
lovely vista ol trees hum thu road
which passes the Rate of tho National
Ceineteiy is n pleasing structtlie of gran
ite, built in tho Noimaii stylo of aiehi
tectute. It is solid and substantial us
well as ornamental and Architect Mul

picpaied the plans, toys it is built to
stand as it is intended for a lainily
sepulehie. 'J ho whole building is of
Maino gianlte, thu 100I consisting of
solid slabs of that stone about twenty
feet in length und weighing each u ton
und ti half.
Tho interior, a spaco of eighteen feet
by Uftecu, and piobalily twenty feet
high, is lined with pressed bilck with
ornamental tiimmiiigs, and boveral win
dows give plenty of light. The collin
containing Gen. Logan's icmalus .will
bo encased inia steel casket and rest on
tho tiled lloor in the center of the chape,
visnble to tho public through 11 licuvy,
grated iron door. As 11 fuither protec
tion the chapel will bo connected by
electric burglar iilurui devices with the
lodgo of the superintendent, of the eeme
tciy. Mrs. Logan will leave next week
for Europe, so the removal of the lenmins
will bo attended with no ceremonies,
but upon her 10! urn no chapel will bo
formally dedicated.
