were practically completed at a meeting
of the committee on arrangements of the
t7nlted German Bociet!e?, which was held
at the restaurant of G. Kramm at 224
14th street southwest. The popularity of
the Bennlng track, the accessibility of
the place and the facilities for amuse
ments offered there determined the com
mittee in choosing that place for holding
the celebration. Already 1,000 tickets have
been distributed among the various Ger
man societies In the city for sale, and re
ports Indicate that they are being rapidly
The general program, as arranged for

Services to Be Held This Evening?
Sermon by Rabbi.
The temple of the Washington Hebrew
Congregation, on 8th street near H north
west, the improvement work on which has
been described In detail In The Star, will
be reopened this evening at 8 o'clock and
cn tills occasion Rabbi Abram Simon will
preach on "The Joy of Worship." The con
gregation Is expected to turn out In full
force and the public has been invited to at
tend the services. The interior of the build
ing has been handsomely decorated and
the seating capacity of the main auditorium
The Inside as well as the outside now
presents a highly-finished appearance. Ad
ditions have been erected on each 6lde of
the front of the building and partitioned
Into vestry rooms and Sabbath school
rooms. Three new Sabbath school
rooms have been added, making, In all,
nine such rooms. The two vestry rooms
that originally flanked the altar have been
torn out and replaced by ten pews. The
most beautiful effect of the remodeling of
the interior is the frescoing and the wall
coloring. The fresco work is very artistic.
The work of coloring the walls, celling and
dome has been accomplished with great
The flesh-hued tint of thp walls blend
harmoniously with the slightly darker col
oring of the ceiling and lends to the room
a peculiarly quiet and religious aspect. The
mouth of the dome is circled by electric
lights, which make very effective the an
cient Jewish symbol of the Intersecting tri
angles representing the rising sun, which
Is at the apex of the dome. The pilars have
been altered to represent marble, in order
to match the altar. Additional lights
have been Installed with pleasing effect.
Taken all In all, the purpose of those
who made up the plans?the giving o?t a
sanctified, though attractive, air to the
room of worship?has been most success

NEW SCHOOL IK PBOSf EOT.
Benedictine Sisters Purchase Brotftf
Mansion for Educational Purposes,
It was learned late this afternoon that a
large realty deal has been consummated In
Brook land, D. C., by gleans of Which an
other Catholic body will locate within view
of the Catholic University of America. Thij
latest acquisition to the colony of educators
Is the Benedictine Sisters. The society hM
bought the old Brooks mansion from the
Congregation of Marist Fathers. Prepara
tions are said to be already on foot for
opening the school here in October.
This newest sisterhood in Washington Is
a branch of the Order of St. Benedict, one
of the oldest of Roman Catholic clerical
organizations in the world. It has its
mother house in New Jersey.
No old-time residence in this city has a
more interesting history than has the
Brooks mansion, from which the subdivision
takes its name. It was bought from the
Brooks estate in 1881 by the Congregation
of Marist Fathers, and was used by it until
its new and complete college and seminary
buildings were erected In rear of the Catho
lic University. The Brooks property was
Improved by the Marists in the erection of
a back building.
It was further learned that Mr. Rudolph
Elchhorn represented the Sisters of St.
Benedict in the transaction, the deed being
in his name. The paper was executed on
August 81 last.
This property occupies one of the most
commanding sites in Brookland, and com
prises a block of ground containing 75,000
square feet. While the purchase price
could not be learned today, an estimate
places the valuation at $176,000 or more.
It has already been anticipated in The
Star that several Roman Catholic congre
gations and societies, In addition to those
already here, would shortly locate in Wash
ington. There are still two more who are
casting about for a desirable location. One
of these Is thought to have located near the
Dominican House of Studies. It has been
stated on excellent authority that Mr.
Elchhorn had been negotiating for the past
three years for this and other sites at
Brookland In the interest of the Benedic
tine Sisters. He had a special desire to se
cure this famous old property, which is
thought to be ideal in every respect as a
foundation for the ambitious plans the sis
ters have in view,
"As soon as demands warrant," said a
well-informed resident to a Star reporter,
"the Benedictine Sisters will erect suitable
sanitary buildings, and expect to take'a
large part in the development of education
in the capital of the nation. It has always
been the desire of the Benedictine Sisters
in this country to locate In Washington,
and now that they have secured such an
advantageous site I would not be surprised
that ere long earth will be turned on their
grounds as the preparatory steps toward a
series of buildings that will be a credit to
the cause of education and to the city of
Washington, which is rapidly becoming the
center of letters In the United States."

Young Man Twice Punished.
The sight of a man being whipped In
public by a woman was witnessed last
night at the corner of Pennsylvania avenue
and 8th street southeast. It Is said the
woman was accompanied by her husband,

after his wife had finished using a whip.
"I want to see you," the woman said
to the young man, touching him on his
arm. "You've been talking about me," she
Then ?She produced a whip and used it
vigorously, striking him a number of times
before he managed to get away from her.
Witnesses to the affair say lier husband
?then took part In the affair. People who
gathered about the trio made no effort to
interfere or protect the young man.
When the wife and husband had conclud

THE LOCAL MARKETS
POTATOES AND TOMATOES AD
VANCE in price. .
Peaches and Cantaloupes In Demand?
Game Supply Short?Pish
Potatoes and tomatoes, two vegetables
that are In great demand, are higher this
week than they have been In a long time.
The former jumped from $1.25 and $1.50 to 12
a barrel yesterday, while tomatoes went as
high as t2 a box. A local dealer told a Star
reporter this morning that he was unabie
to get any tomatoes for his trade for less
than $1.75 a box, and unless there is a de
cided Increase in supply during the next
few days the price will go still higher.
Lettuce Is coming unusually fine, and flne
headed stock that usually brings from 10 to
20 cents at this season is selling at S cents.
There Is a good second crop of string beans
and they are correspondingly cheap, selling
at 80 cents a peck. Other vegetables are
plentiful and cheap.
Peaches and canteloupes are leading the
fruit market, and the demand for them will
continue as long as the supply lasts. The
canteloupes are from Colorado and are as
fine as ever rcached the local market. They
are to be had at from 5 to 20 cents each.
While peaches are not cheap, they are quot
ed at lower rates than the local dealers had
anticipated. Western Maryland growers are
furnishing most of the stock for the local
market. They would have been much more
plentiful had it not been for the late rains
damaging them before they could be picked.
The price depends entirely upon the quality
of the fruit. Grapes from California are
plentiful today and In good condition, bring
ing 15 cents a pound. Apples are plentiful
and are to be had as low as $1 a barrel for
The Gam? Supply.
Reedblrds and ortolan are in demand, but
the supply Is short. The former are selling
at 75 cents a dozen and the latter are bring
ing $1. Dealers are unable to get enough
birds to supply the demand at these prices.
The game supply will be better when there
U a decided change in the weather. Wild
ducks will then make their appearance In
this section and gunners will have sport and
be able to furnish stock to the dealers.
There are no woodcock or snipe in market.
Some few birds are being killed, but they
are not reaching the market. There has
been practically no change In the price of
chickens since last week. They are no
cheaper, and dealers do not except they will
be any cheaper In the near future.
Butchers are not as busy as they usually
are at this season, the continued warm
weather having a depressing effect upon the
meat market. Hams and bacon are no
cheaper than they have been for several
weeks, but other meats are cheap.
Fish are not unusually plentiful, but local
dealers are able to get supplies enough for
their trade. Soft crabs are still to be had
at reasonable prices, but the season for
them will close soon. No change In the but
ter market Is noted. Eggs are selling at
from 28 to 30 cents, with a tendency toward
an easy market.
