PHOGRAM FOR TODAY. The laving of the corner-stone of the Hall of nistory, the first of the new build ings of the A merit an University, will lake place this aUernooii on the site of the Insti tullon, on the Loughboro' road, two miles from the titj's northwestern limits. The most imposing ceremonies will mark the event, and many prominent men of church and state will be spectaters or paitlci pauts. Mr John E.

Theciislomar articles will be placed in the receptacle by llislup Hurst, who will adjust the cap stone. The lajing of this stone Is one of the most auspicious steps in the building of the great university. 1 he plans hav e been under consideration lor ears Each step seemed a long ore. It was a lei g time after the preiject was first broachcel that the funds were made and me purcnaso oi the site effected. Almost eignty acres of land have lieu bought alreadi . At present it i s I eculiarly Inaccessible so far as popular conveyances to and from the site are concerned. The closest railway is the Georgetown and Tenleitown road, more than hair a mile distant, and that, loo, by a circuitous route. It Is not destined to alwa s remain thus, however. University and city will grow together, the founders believe. When that growth takes place Massachusetts avenue will stretch out to and bejoinl the Leautl ful gruunels, with not a thing to break its continuity save an occasional circle or reservation with which the prospective thoroughfare Is to Jie adorned. Already avenues and streets have been survcjied through the adjacent country and the pictured scene or the future makes that one of the finest spots In the vicinity ot the Capital City. Some months ago preliminaries had reached such nn advanced stage that the breaking of the ground for the Hall of lhs tor.i was begun. '1 his event was heralded with appropriate ceremonies. Since then work has been rapid and less than a jear will see the beautiful .new building ready for dedication. DESCRIPTION OF THE HALL The new hall stands sevenli-rive feet back fruin Nebraska avenue and is at the end of a quadrangle luat will be formed of the other halls or the institution, all of which It is pruposcd to erect in rapid suc cession as soon as work on the first one Is completed. It will fate to the west ot nurili The walls will be heavy. like those of buildings of gov ernmeutal construction, and all halls are to lie monuments tliat may last until the end of time. This building will be constructed of w lilte marble from the Columbian quarries of Rutland. VU Whether the future build ings will follow out the same plan is not known, but it is probable that in jears to come it will appear us a, white educational city overlooking the mctropoilsinthevalley below. The basement story will rise six felt above the ground and will be divided. into a. number uf well lighted roams, already assigned to definite purposes. The first or main story, will be occupied by a library, a museum, professors' rooms, ccinlimrlu ami lecture rooms The upper floor will con- - j5. .s-s -''-.rfyS'V - . - "r-i..tnssi wr ?- Ts?
