Masonio Building To Be Erected At
Cost of 920,000.
Union Masonic lodge committee
that has the authority with an ad
visory committee to proceed to the
erection of a new building for the
lodge has decided upon tne plana to
be followed and to begin the work of
erection without delay. The building
will be of two stories of brick and will
contain three stores on the first floor
and lodge rooms preparation rooms,
etc., on the second floor. The sum of
$20,000 will be used in the construc
tion of the building, which will be up
to date and which will make a splendid
home for the Masonic body and other
lodges which rent quarters from the
lodge. The tenants are now Beulah
lodge, Martha Washington council and
Perkins Post and the W. R. C. The
original plans called for an expendi
ture of (30,000, but that was regarded
as more than Union lodge wanted to
invest, so the plans were modified.
The committee says the building
will be erected witbin the appropria
tion and that the structure will be
Just such as the lodge wants.
To Build Bakery.
Daniel F. Moran and James Moran
have sold the double brick building
known as part of the Hobron block,
situated in Blinman street running
through to Bank street, to Anna Sper
sky and Casey R. Spersky of Norwich.
A large bakery is to be built on the
Bank street lot
A section of the framework of a
huge sign above the Waller building in
State street was taken down Wednes
day. The police, under the direction of
Alderman llarrigan of the public build
ings committee, prevented the comple
tion of the sign there. Since that time
an opinion of tbe corporation counsel
has enlightened the city fathers to the
effect that the city has no authority to
make the advertising agents take down
the sign. The structure, which had not
been completed, was considered dan
gerous and it is possible that the firm
responsible for the sign has taken
that portion down to avoid hostile sen
timent. Work on Piers.
Laborers in the employ of the J. EL
Fitzgerald company have now begun
the excavation of the embankment
overlooking the mammoth pier. The
material excavated is to be used in
creating the filled In area of the pier.

will be utilised toy the Fitzgerald com
pany in building an embankment on
which a spur track will be run from
the Central Vermont line to the shore
adjacent to the terminal. This track
and its sidings will be about 1,009 feet
in length. ,
The Fitzgerald force now consists of
JO men and a camp for them has been
built between Tenth and Twelfth
streets. Busy as the scene is now, it
is nothing compared to what will be
going on there a few weeks hence,
when the pier has progressed to a
greater degree. The T. A. Scott com
pany is keeping a full force of dredges
and pile drivers steadily on the job.
Contractor W. L. Roe, Jr.. is making
excellent progress on the construction
of the overhead bridge at Tenth street.
The trusses are now going up on the
towers and vents and soon the floor
ing will be laid.
Changes at Armory.
During the summer recess, begin
ning at the close of the drill season
in May, extensive alterations are to be
made at tbe state armory. The entire
roof will be recovered, a new beating
plant will be installed and the com
pany quarters will be renovated. An

13,000 of this has been expended in
new lockers and other equipment.
The roof of the armory will be cov
ered with asbestos. New plumbing
will be provided for the basement and
shower baths will be an added feature
of the facilities. A new rifle range
will be laid out in the basement with

G ASTORIA has met with pronounced favor on the part of physicians,
pharmaceutical societies and medical authorities. It is used by physi
cians with results most gratifying. The extended use ofCastoria is
unquestionably the result of three facts : First The indisputable evidence
that it is harmless: Second That it not only allays stomach pains and
quiets the nerves, but assimilates the food : Third It is an agreeable and
perfect substitute for Castor Oil. It is absolutely safe. It does not con
tain any Opium, Morphine, or other narcotic and does not stupefy. It is
unlike Soothing Syrups, Bateman's Drops, Godfrey's Cordial, etc. This is a
good deal for a Medical Journal to say. Our duty, however, is to expose
danger and record the means of advancing health. The day for poisoning
innocent children through greed or ignorance ought to end. To our knowl
edge, Castoria is a remedy which produces composure and health, by
regulating the system not by stupefying it and our readers are entitled
to the information. Hall 's Journal of Health.

and reliable remedy."
Dr. Raymond M. Evarta, of Santa
Ynez, Cal., says : "After using
your Castoria for children for years
it annoys ma greatly to have an
ignorant druggist substitute some
thing else, especially to the pa
tient's disadvantage, as in this case.
I enclose herewith the wrapper of
Dr. E. M, Ward, of Kansas City,
Mo., says : Physicians generally
do not prescribe proprietary prepa
rations, but in the case of Castoria
my experience, like that of many
other physicians, has taught me to
make an exception. I prescribe
your Castoria in my practice be
cause I have found it to be a thor-
oughly reliable remedy for chil
dren's complaints. Any physician
who has raised a family, as I have,
will join rae in heartiest recom

in my practice, and in ny family."

medicinal virtue of your Castoria.
I have used it with marked benefit
in the case of my own daughter,
and have obtained excellent results
from its ad ministration to other
children in my practice.'
Dr. J. R. Clausen, of Philadel

your Castoria has made for itself

Dr. Channing H. Cook, of Saint
Louis, Mo., says: "I have used
your Castoria for several years past
in my own family and have always
found it thoroughly efficient and
never objected to by children,
which is a great consideration in
view of the fact that most medi
