You Can Know His Secret Free. Marvelous New Treatment Which Conquers All Diseases. You Can Be Cured at Home ? Generous Offer of Prof. Adkln. rUOF. TIIOS. F. AD KIN. "T consider It a crime to experiment with the health of the people." says Prof. Thomas F. Ad kln, President of the Institute of Physicians and Surgeons. "If I did not know positively and ab solutely that my new home treatment will cure every known disease, even when all other meth ods of treatment fail. I would consider I was committing a crime to make such a statement to the public. Nothing Is so precious to a man as his health?nothing so horrible as nn untimely grave. Little Ills, If not promptly cured, often result In obstinate chronic diseases. I believe that my new discovery, 'Vltaopathy,' Is the most marvelous treatment ever known, and I Intend to give Its secrets to the world. I Intend that every man. woman and child shall know its teachings. I propose to tell the sick, absolutely free of charge, how they may be restored to perfect health. 1 would rather be a benefactor to the sick nlBn than to have the wealth of Cresus." The above are remarkable words, but those who know Prof. Adkln and have tried his treatment can Touch for their absolute truthfulness. "I was nearly dead with liver and kidney trouble," writes Prof. John C. Nelson, a well known geologist and mining engineer, living In Dayton, Tenn. "The doctors had given me up to die. You can imagine what a state of mind I was In. I could not attend to business, and began to think my days were numbered. I rend the won derful cures Prof. Adkin bad effected by bis great discovery, Yitaopatliy, and as a forlorn hope wrote to him just the condition 1 was in, mentally and physically. lie gave mo a clear diagnosis of my case and didn't charge me a cent for it. He pre scribed n treatment which I began with little or no faith, but 1 am happy to state that I am now completely cured and a Arm believer in Vltaopathy. From uiy own personal experience I believe Prof. Adkin can alnmst raise the drad." Mrs. A. J. Slefried, Stowe Creek, O., writes this grateful letter: "I was affected with a severe case of Eczema and Nettle Rash, which spread over my whole body. The Itching and stingiug at times was almost unendurable. I wrote Prof. Adkin, and in four days after I began following the free ad vice he gave me the Itching began to subside and the eruptions dried up rapidly. In ten days I was permanently cured. I feel better now than I have for the past 10 years. The free advice of Prof. Adkln gives a blessing to those who cannot afford to pay big doctors' bills." Prof. Adkin fcays: "I sympathise with th? sick. I want to make every chronic invalid well. I want to prove what my treatment will do. I want every sick person In this country to write me per sonally. Tell me the leading symptoms of your disease, and I will at once make a thorough diag nosis of your case and outline a method of treat ment which will positively cure you. This will cost you absolutely nothing. 1 will also send you a copy of my new book on 'How to Get Well and Keep Well,' postage paid. Ton are not out a single cent. Write me in confidence fully and freely about yourself." Address PttOF. TIIOS. F. AD KIN, Office 298 P, Rochester, N. Y. THE COUNTY ROADS. Report Made to Commissioners of Their Condition. In commenting? upon the complaint of Charles G. Van Horn, concerning the bad condition of the Benning road ! nsome lo calities. Col. John Biddle, the Engineer Commissioner, has called the attention of the other Commissioners to the generally bad conditions of most of the roads in the county. "The season this year has been exception al," he says, "and throughout the entire District macadamized and graveled roads have, on account of the frost coming up from below, been greatly damaged and are in some cases almost impassable. In spections have been made In each case that has been called to my attention, and also many of the roads have been gone over independently. "There la, no way that I know of that temporary improvements can be made short of corduroying, which would be unsatis factory and expensive. "The appropriation available for the re pair of roads is utterly inadequate to do the work required to put them In proper condition. The entire appropriation might be sunk in one or two roads in their pres ent state. The only thing to do would seem to be to wait until they dry out to some extent, when necessary repairs will be made as far as the amount of money on hand for the purpose will permit." Becomes Sole Owner. Mr. Charles H. Bond of Boston, who, in connection with Mr. H. Bradley Davidson and Mr. John C. Davidson, erected the Bond building, at the southwest corner of 14th street and New York avenue, has bought the interest* of the Messrs. David son in the property and is now the sole owner. Mr. Bond Intends to retain the building as an Investment. Members of Board of Governors. Major Sylvester has appointed John Jour nee of New Orleans and H. 3.

TOPICS. /? 4 *> - U - . !ll Consolidation ofWater Registrar's Of fice With That of the Col lector of Taxes. ? :h ?T! I , 1 The March meeting,, of the Georgetown Citizens' Association #as called to order last evening at 7:30 o'clock, In the hall of the First Co-operative Building Association, 1823 32d street, by President B. T. Janney. Dr. Keene officiated as secretary. From the statement of the treasurer, a balance of $129 was reported in the treasury. The amendment to the by-laws, presented at the last meeting by Mr. A. K. Parrls, providing for the changing of the meeting night from the first Friday to the first Monday of each month was brought up, and the amendment was adopted. There were no reports submitted from the executive or legislative committees. The resignation of Mr. F. L. Williams was accepted. The question of the consolidation of the water registrar's office with that of the tax office, making one general office, and pro viding for the payment of the water and general taxes at one time, was considered. A number of views were expressed, and during the discussion the question that Georgetown is entitled to free water was discussed. An amendment to the resolution was offered by Mr. Parrls. to the effect that the water assessment bill be included and placed on the general assessment against property, as per assessment made in May or November on account of taxis. The reso lution was designed to have the bills paid at one and the same time, saving an ad ditional trip by the property owners to the District building. The amendment to the original resolution was approved and re ferred to the legislative comittee for report. Mr. George \V. King discussed the option that was presented to the cities of Wash ington and Georgetown; that Georgetown paid an assessment of U) cents per front foot, while Washington preferred to pay a yearly tax. I^ater, in 1S75, the water regis trar made a ruling that there should be no discrimination, and Georgetown was called upon for a water tax. This ruling was contested by Mr. Welch, but the suit went by default. The matter has never been car ried into court since. Mr. Leetch spo?ve of the lack of benefits received by Georgetown, and Mr. Parrls referred to the difficulties experienced in getting members into what is really a "town meeting." The latter proposed that the chair appoint a special committee to see the citizens of the town "and try to in fuse a patriotic feeling among them." The proposition was put in the form of a motion and was passed. The chair announced that he would name the committee In a few days. The Old Reservoir. After some discussion on the subject, Mr. Leetch introduced a resolution that the matter of removing the old reservoir at 32d and U streets be referred to a proper committee of the association for a report. Mr. King spoke of the Commissioners' fig ures as to the amount of appropriations due Georgetown and the result that the paving of 32d street, from P street to T street, will shortly be commenced. The question of railroad tracks being placed on the Aqueduct bridge was also considered. It was stated that for twenty vears the project of placing tracks on the bridge had been agitated, but nothing ever accomplished, and that now while there is one bill in Congress providing for the erec tion of an entire new structure, the Com missioners were only in favor of expending $90,000 for the purpose of strengthening the present structure, which, in*the shape of a bill, will be used in Congress to thwart any favorable action.

A dozen- New Yorki brides and beginners In housekeeping banded together about six months ago to study the gas range and its possibilities. The purpose of the club was to learn to use the new ranges In the most economical and cheapest way through each member sharing with her friend* any little economy she mighi discover either by ex perimentation or chance. The ctub came together once a month, and each member read a paper In which she gave her personal experience. Some of > the points thus brought out may prove as new and useful to other beginners as they did to the mem bers of the club. The greatest of the gas stove being tne long fuel-devouring flames of the oven, much time wss devoted to ways of employing the oven Are to best advantage. One young woman brought a Ave minute# paper advising her friends to serve an en tire "baked" dinner whenever the weekly roast of beef or mutton was to be the piece de resistance of a meat Tto utilise the heat necessary for cooking the meat, she suggested potatoes baked In their Jack ets or In the gravy, escaloped tomatoes or any other vegetable which lends Itself kind ly to baking, and an oven pudding. By this means, She explained, the oven neat was used for the entire meal, only half as much gas being ooasume&as it boiled vegetables and custard desserts were served upon a roast day. Another bright member devoted herself to the study of the possibilities of a single burner, and brought some practical bints on the subject as her contribution to club archives. She found that a good, whole some and appetizing dinner could be pre NORTH COLUMBIA HEIGHTS, THE NEW SUBURB. Vast Fortunes Hade in Land in Washington, N. W. MILLIONS MORE IN THE NEAR FUTURE Great demand for lots two street car lines assured now?the "Washingtonian" gives interviews on the subject with prop erty owners and Ful ton R. Gordon. WttTTTEN" BY THE "WAS1IINOTONIAN." Twenty millions would not be an extravagant figure in stating how much money has been made in the increase of land values in Washing ton northwest, in the direct line of 14th street. Only a quarter of a century ago whole miles of land that is now cov ered with valuable residences were vacant lots and considered almost valueless. Mr. Levi C. Woodbury of the St. James Hotel was telling me one day as we drove down town from his beautiful home in Iowa Circle how he shot jack rabbits in Dupont Cir cle twenty years ago, and every in telligent Washingtonian knows a dozen stories of people who bought a piece of property?possibly just one building lot?five or ten or fifteen years ago for a song, and now find their property worth five or ten or fifteen thousands?sometimes fifty thousand. "Buy and build in the Northwest" is the universal advice of those who know Washington. A Banker's Views. "The northwest is the inevitable place of real estate expansion and development," said William Selby of the Citizens' Bank, as he stood on the front steps of his home at 3518 13th street, where there is only a block or two of houses between him self and the open country, and where ten years ago there wasn't a house. "Here's the healthiest part of Washington, lifted as it is far above the alleged malaria and the diph theretic dampness. Here property grows more valuable every year, and if I were to advise buying I would | say go out beyond us here and make your investment, where you can get land at not too high a price. Land j out here in the northwest is abso lutely certain to double and treble in value." j Where the Wise Grow Wealthy. "The northwest is the region pared by careful use of a steam cooker, with but one burner. To do this, she ex plained, thought must be brought to bear in selecting foods for the day. "A boiled fowl, dressed with rice, and ottered with mashed potatoes and some green vegetable, such as asparagus or spinach, is a favor ite combination of mine." she said, "and will serve as an example of this point in economy. Fill the lower section of the cooker with water and bring the water to a boil; then put In your fowl. When the meat is within three-quarters or half an hour of being done fill the other portions of the cooker wit.h the rice and the vegetable. The rloe should occupy the middle section and the vegetable the top. When the meat is done the rice will be ready to be wreathed around It, and the vegetable can be served at the same moment. WTith this menu I often serve a clear pea soup, which requires a second burner for a quarter of an hour or even less. Five minutes' use of the second burner will make a cream sauce for the vegetable. "These two additions use the second burner for not more than 20 minutes all told. As a dessert T serve a pie baked to utilize the oven heat while the breakfast meat, toast, etc., require the broiling flimes. Until you have tried continlng the menu to one burner you will not realize how small your gas bill can be. if yoai so desire, at the end of the month. The dinner I mention is given as an example only. Great variety can be introduced, using the same plan. A simple dinner of one meat, one vegetable or a combination of vegetables may be sup plemented by a boiled dessert, such as apple dumplings, bag pudding and the like, all courses being prepared In the steamer. In stead of fowl, the foundation of the meal may be mutton, corned beef or fish." One of the little housewives discovered that a most important economical item cen tered in the simmering burner, and that a vast deal of gas could be thrown away by a reckless disregard of it. As soon as any thing which requires long boiling, such aa bones for a soup stock, corned beef, old fowl, etc.. Is brought to boil smartly, she advised using the simmering flame, which does the work quite as well and with less gas. ?Reprinted from Good Housekeeping, New York. * Hotel Arrivals. Ebbitt?J. H.

"Yes, I have tried to get as far out into the northwest as any one,'' said Mr. J. Whit Herron, business manager of The Evening Star, whose house is at 3536 13th street, half a block beyond Mr. Selbv's, "but already they are going beyond me. In a few years the improvement line has moved out many blocks," and he like all the rest told many cases of property worth many thou sands that wasn't considered worth taxes a few years ago. The Health Question. I have consulted several physi cians about where to live in Wash ington and they all say "on the high ground of the northwest. That is where you can rely on being well, if climatic conditions govern, for there is no healthier place in the whole world," and I went out and tried to secure the very last house on the very last block next to vacant fields, and would have taken it the very next day, but its owner put up the price twenty-five per cent over night. Now my plan is to go way out be yond the high price region and get a lot and build, and it was looking up the other property on Columbia Heights that I came across the ad vertisement of North Columbia Heights, and called on Fulton R. Gordon, who gave me a book about North Columbia Heights and a big map and placed a carriage at my dis posal to go out and see the property.

The students of the colored night schools and their friends filled M Street High School to overflowing last night, the occasion being the closing exercises of the public night schools for the term of 1901-02. Mrs. Bet tie O. Francis, chairman of the committee of special and Industrial education of the board of education, presided. An address was made by Prof. W. S. Montgomery, as sistant superintendent. Among other things, the speaker emphasised the advan tage of living in America, "the land of the free and the home of the brave," but more especially in Washington, where the public school system, as stated recently by Com missioner Harris of the bureau of educa tion and generally acknowledged by others. Is second to that of no other city. He called attention to the munificence at the government la establishing and maintain* tog public night schools, thanked the stu dents on behalf of the board of education for their hearty appreciation of such privi leges as shown by an unprecedented attend ance during the year and Closed by prophe sying that the night schools, managed un der the new condition* would become an important branch of the general system. An interesting feature of the evening's urogram was an old-time spelling match, participated In by eight pupils from each of the three schools. Cook. Randall and Ste vens Mr. Raymond Rlordon, director of nlfht schools, had them In charge. Cook finally came off victorious, the victors be tions about the expense of buildings questions Mr. Gordon can answer ten a minute, for he is loaded with facts, figures and enthusiasm about the new property he is handling and has made a deep study of the great question of suburban development and home building. Mr. Gordon is pretty busy these days. People arc waiting their turn at his office to get particulars about North Columbia Heights and buying up the lots so fast he hardly expects them to last till April. He called my attention to the fol lowing item from The Star of Fri day: The Commissioners and the Street Cars. "The Commissioners declare that the proposed extension of 14th street is one of the most important highway improvements projected iti the Dis trict, because they believe the sec tion through which it passes would be immediately built up. It is stated that as soon as the street is opened the 14th street car line will be ex tended and attention is called to the fact that this will give easy access to the proposed municipal hospital at the head of 13th street." Here are several other important items pertaining to N'orth Columbia Heights: Values Jud^d by Building Asso ciation Loans. One of our largest city building as sociations loaned 24c. a square foot this week to one of our lot purchas ers on a lot sold for 35c. It is an ironclad rule with loan associations to never loan over two-thirds of the cash value of any property, and they employed the best judges of real es tate va'ues to make their loans. This is the best evidence that we are sell ing our lots at their lowest cash value, even though we sell them ou easy payments. Prices, Terms and Size of Lots. Trices, 30 to 35c. a square foot for 150 lots, the remaining lots being reserved for city prices?$1.50 to $2.50 a square foot. Lots 25 to 100 feet front by 75 to 150 feet deep to 15-foot alleys. Terms, $50 to $100 cash and $15 to $20 monthly 011 each lot, or one-third cash, balance 1, 2 and 3 years, 5 per cent off for cash. Money loaned to build at lowest rates of interest. Carriage free to sec the property. Drop postal, call or 'phone for new sixteen-page illustrated booklet, plat, etc. One of our representatives will bo on the property all day Sunday. FULTON R.

One of the students of the night school who is a remarkable whistler gave some laughable and enjoyable numbers, and several choruses were sung,"led by Mr. *. L. Cardoso, jr., assistant director t>f nieht schools. 6 General Harries, vice president of tho board of education, who appeared Just be fore the close of the exercises, was espied near the door, and, being called upon for a speech, delighted the audience with a few witty and timely words. Among other visitors were Mrs. Ida O. Myers, assistant superintendent, and Miss S. B. Kent, principal of the Webster School. BUILDING OPERATIONS. Eight-Story Apartment House in View ?Bow of Fine Dwellings. The buildings at the southeast corner of 15th and L streets are being cleared oft find on this site Mr. T. P. Schneider pro poses to erect an eight-story apartment house. With a frontage of 57% feet on L. street and 54 feet on 15th street the new structure will have somewhat of a tower effect. The staircase and elevator will be In the center of the building, and the suites of rooms will cluster about that center. Above the roof the usual extension of iho elevator shaft will form a part of the de sign of the entire structure, which will be similar to that of the Sherman apartment house, which Is on the opposite corner aad which was also built by Mr. Schneider. Plans have been made by Mr. F. B. Pyle, architect, for five houses, which Mr. W. M. Terrill intends to erect at the corner of 17th and I^owell streets, near Mount Pleas ant.
