Five Years' Residence Xakes Am cans Look Like Kexicans. From the New York Sun. A residence of five years in Yucatan make an American look like a Mexican dress like one. That is the impression gets in looking at many of the passenj who troop down the- gangway from steamers arriving from Mexico. This is true to at greater extent esse of women than of men. T'he - of Yucatan seems to take the color their cheeks and to replace it with ai light shade of copper. They chatter Sj lsh a~s if it were their mother tongue, it Ls their dress, or. rather, the manne which they wear it, that has the real: of the middle-class Mexican. A Mexican woman, if young, has an tr.:tivo air from the top of her head her waiet. Elow the waist she looksa py. The skivt ii. *no wide and too long is so shapeless as to be utterly lackin style. It is of the str.eet--eleaning~ var and the wearer does not seem to know to pick it up in a way to show I. er he, to advantage. The American woman who lives Ion the country fails into this habit with cilty that is painful to the American who lives at home. But Americans live in Yucatan are, generally speal making money, particularly If they ar' terested in hemp, and they find conso~ in this fact.

BRIDGE OVER CREEK PE3ECT WILL REQUIRE TWC YEARS TO COMPLETE. " Building Statistics 'for Twenty-Three " Cities-Renting Continues Brisk New Apartment House. While Washington has viewed with in creasing interest the development of cer tain topographical Improvemtnts along the line of much traveled road, an extensive V work of construction and depression has gone on elsewhere, apparently without its 2 knowledge. This is the extension of Massa chusetts avenue from Belair Heights to North Georg town, and the construction of an enormous fill with a culvert over Rock + creek. The magnitude of this undertaking a * and the enormity of benefit which will re sult from its completion are difficult to - overestimate. In its present condition Massachusetts e avenue Is practically untraveled beyond . Belmont road. From that point westward, 3* well built as the roadway is, probably not a dozen vehicles traverse it in the course of e. a week. It !s practically a cul-de-sac. Fac Fac ing upon it are half a dozen blocks of splen ) " " + ascuett Avnu BrdeOe .;. '"7 Rock Creek. i did building property, but with Massachu 3 --- esetts avenue in its present condition, they 4 c form In the arm of Rock creek an area so c".. difficult of access that they have been e_ practically unused. When Massachusetts avenue is extended It will connect this territory with all that e part of Georgetown now reached by a ngr row driveway known sentimentally as e "Lovers' lane," and the whole district con tiguous to the naval observatory grounds. This tract, on the other side of the stream, is as completely isolated for business pur poses as that on the east side of the creek. The effect of this extension, thea, will be to connect, and at the same time afford transport facilities to, two large and val uable property holdings. Both are excep tionally well situated. That on the east side of the stream provides a logical ex . pansion for the most fashionable section of the northwest. That on the west side offers the home builder the quiet and pri vacy of the country almost in the very _ heart of the city. A Notable Engineering Task. But the task of building this avenue of communication is enormous. It involved first, the reduction of a considerable grade between the circle at 23d street and the creek; second, the construction of a culvert sufficient for the free passage of Rock creek swollen to its greatest size; third, the filling in of'a space over three hun dred feet long, at one place sixty feet deep and at the base of this fill one hundred ind fifty feet wide; fourth, a cut through rock and clay twelve arid fourteen feet deep 'n places, to carry the avenue through to 36th street.
