BUSINESS STRUCTURE NEARLY FINISHED NEW ( ORNWEI.I. Bl ll.DIM;, ON H STREET NORTHWEST BETWEEN 14TH AND 1.VTH STREETS, MAV BE OCCUPIED THIS WEEK BY GROCERY FIRM. CHILL BUILDING HEARING COMPLETION Grocery Firm May Move This Week Into Its New Home on H Street. With construction work ncaring com pletion on the new Cornwell building, 1415 II street northwest, it is probable that the builders of tjie structure, the G. G. Cornwell A Son Grocery Company, will move into the new home during the ensuing week. Announcement to this ef fect was made yesterday to John H. Xolan, the contractor, and while his men are still engaged in finishing the interior of the building the grocery firm is also actively occupied in placing counters and other fixtures in readiness for the re moval from the old Cornwell building on the south side of Pennsylvania avenue northwest between 14th and 15th streets. \Vo?k on the new Cornwell structure was begun early in the present buiidine season, and it is expected the contractor will finish his task in the interior fitting of the building in about two weeks. \1 together the investment represented by this addition to the growing business cen ter in the vicinity of 15th and H struts northwest is estimated at about *225,000, since the ground on whicli the new build ing stands cost approximately $150,000 and the building itself will have cost when completed about ?75,000. Particularly designed to meet the needs of the Cornwell firm in its wholesale and retail grocery business, the structure has heen built of steel and concrete, so that it is thoroughly fireproof. Its exterior walls are of Indiana limestone and press ed brick, and from the structural stand point it is in keeping with the high-class improvements which have been and are now being placed in the same neighbor hood. The Cornwell building is four stor ies in height, and it stands on a lot with a frontage of fifty feet on H street and a depth of 150 feet. Joan of Arc's Sword. From thP Ixuitlon Mall.

Physician Thinks Motors Arc Mak ing People Lazy. From tbo Now York Mwiical Journal. Any one who takes an outing. particu larly at the seaside, can hardly fail to notice the revolution that has taken place during the last decade in the methods of enjoying a vacation. The automobile whizzes by on the roads and the motor boat sputters noisily within sight of the shore, each bearing its crowd of pleas ure seekers, while even the swimmers are supported, a large proportion of them at least, by an artificial contrivance de signed to keep them afloat without exer tion. Rowing, walking and swimming are the three ideal exercises, all demanding the open air and all having detinite ob jects apart from their excellent effect on ?bodily health. But the modern amuse ments, such as moiorine and motor boat racing, have nothing to recommend them tave that they, too, require outdoor space. Golf seems to be increasing the number ? of its devotees, even if the latter go to j the links in high-powered cars. But the ; writer would like to see the immense j audiences of base ball and foot ball \ fames playing on numerous . diamonds t and gridirons of their own. and would I welcome a regulation that prescribed a playground ten times its size to adjoin every new library. It is not only the j rich who become lazy; the omnipresent trolley car embodies the favorite recre'a tioif of the poor. Irony of the Law. Front tb" Boston ?>l'>b'". ?Mysteries, far beyond the comprehen sion of the average mortal, are constantly revealed in the law and its administra tion. The other day a much-harassed woman appeared in a Boston court and complained to the judge that her husband refused to support their two small chil dren. She could get along without him, i she said, but she demanded that he be compelled to go to work and fcielp support iiis offspring. Her story was corrobo rated by witnesses. So the judge found the man guilty and sentenced him to one year in the-house of correction. Here was what seems on the surface to be an easy problem. A husband and father, either through disinclination or through inability to And work, is brought into court on a charge of non-support. In order to relieve the situation, he is sent to the house of correction, where he will be kept at work. That he is not able to send his pay envelope home to his family every Saturday night? because there is no pay env elope in such cases?is. in the eye of the law, a minor circum stance. The main thine seems to he that the man has been guilty of an offense and that he is punished for it. He is | punished, but it is his wife and his two I helpless children who pay the penalty. The law may be ironical, but it has no sense of humor. "You ha\e been found guilty of not supporting your chil dren." it says, "and therefore I will send you where you cannot support them." Tired of Special Stamps. From the New Bedford Standard. The fad of putting symbolical or em blematic or agitative or emotional stamps on letters was bound to ^pme to at end by its nverdoine. and probably no imperative occasion existed for the postal department to hasten the inevitable end. AVhen the Red Cross Society took up the idea for the purpose of raising funds with which to carry on the anti-tubercu losis fight, there was quite general com mendation for the scheme, and enormous numbers of t'hristmas stamps were read ily sold. Naturally the enthusiasm with which this venture was received has brought out many imitations, some for the purpose of raising money and others for the purpose of making an impression, or for both purposes combined. It would naturally follow that the multiplicity of these enterprises would lead to weariness with the idea, and that eventually it would drop out of sight because of the overweight. From the point of view of the postal department the extra stapip has proved much of an annoyance, as well as a detriment to the smooth work ing of the service. It lias seemed- almost impossible to teach many persons that the stamp iF not a postage stamp, and hundreds of letters have therefore failed of transmission. More than that, the abandon with which the senders of let ters have selected places where to affix the stamps has proved bothersome and confusing to postal clerks, and has thus made their work more difficult. These are sufficient reasons to the of ficial mind, we suppose, for vigorously discouraging the extra stamps. But the stamp Is bound to take its place among the forgotten enthusiasms, for the reason that too much enthusiasm has mad# it a wasteful expenditure MIDDAUGH & SHANNON, INC.

T.ike. other intelligent American trav elers who study municipal and state ad ministration in the progressive countries of Europe, Miss Mary MacDowell, the settlement worker, has much praise for the English and German methods of gar bage destruction. Dumping is forbidden; reftise is prompt ly collected and burned in scientifically built structures under expert direction. The disagreeable processes are carried on by machinery; there is neither smoke nor offensive odor, even where the plants are near the homes of the people. There are those in Chicago who fear that our whole sanitary district scheme, with the channels and extensions, is a costly blnnder. Be this as It may, let us do better for garbage than we have done for sewage. L?et us study the mod ern and scietitic methods of collecting, disposing of or utilizing garbage. I^et us bum what cannot be converted into beauty and utility, and let us at any cost do away with the disgraceful practieo of dumping refuse in any part of this city. For Father.
