Proposed Road Between Wash
ington and Mount Vernon.
tt Is to Be Free to All and Will Be
Seventeen Miles Lone and Tiro
Hundred and Fifty Feet "Wide S,ne
Eestlons For Structures Along the
Ronte. '
The beginning of the twentieth cen
tury -will witness the construction of
a national boulevard which, when
completed, will connect Washington
and Mount Vernon. In 18S8 congress
made an appropriation of 10,000 for
the preliminary survey of the route.
President Cleveland not only signed
the bill, but before its enactment in
terested himself In the measure. Sec
retary Endlcott detailed Colonel Peter
C. Hains of the war department to
make the survey, and when the report
was made Secretary Endlcott indorsed
it and advocated the passage of other
appropriations to begin the work. The
legislature of Virginia granted a char
ter to the Mount Vernon Avenue asso
ciation and soon after transferred to
the association a claim against the
government for $120,000, with the un
derstanding that when the money was
collected It should be used in the con
struction of the boulevard.
The Mount Vernon Avenue associa
tion recently met in Alexandria and
elected a board of directors, who re
solYed to resume this work as soon as
the board elects officers, early in 1900.
The Washington end of this highway
will be the western entrance to the
capltol building. The line will run
through the Mall, south of the White
House, and near the monument to the
Potomac at the western terminus of
New York avenue. It will cross the
Potomac over the proposed memorial
bridge which will unite the capital
with Arlington, the home of Lee, and
now the Arlington National cemetery.
On the Virginia shore the boulevard
will follow the course of the Potomac
to Alexandria and from thence to
Mount Vernon on the exact line over
which Washington traveled from his
home to Alexandria when he was an
attendant of Christ church In that city,
and in which his high back pew Is still
pointed out' to tourists. When this
boulevard Is completed In accordance
with the proposed plans, it will belong
to the nation. The distance of this
highway, will be 17 miles, the, width
250 feet This distance will be sub
divided Into as many sections as there
are states and territories. Each of
these sections will be named for a state
or territory, and such state or territory
to be honored will be asked to contrib
ute to the beauty of the boulevard in
whatever manner shall be decided upon
by legislative enactment.
Whatever trees or shrubs are plant
ed along any reservation will be taken
from the soil of the state the name of
which Is applied to the reservation.
If there shall be monuments or col
umns or arches, as there will be prob
ably in the1 course of time, they will be
constructed from material taken from
the mines or quarries of states and ter
ritories honored by having sections
named for them. It has been suggest
ed that each state shall erect a statue
'of its most distinguished citizen. The
traveler over this highway will thus
find in a short' distance a mute history
of the United States, giving him In a
short'journey'a conception of the scope
of the country which he could obtain
in no other way without time and ex
pense. It will be an avenue of the sto
ry of the country.
The proposed boulevard wjjl be free
to all. Its general construction will re
quire an army .of laborers, but its com
pletion in accordance with what is out
lined can only be accomplished when
there sTiall be no more history to make.
The'posslbilities of the beauty of such
a highway can scarcely be computed.
Since It has become known that the
work Is to be pushed suggestions mul
tiply daily. One Is that a monument
shall follow the completion of the bou
levard -proper, In the cornerstone of
which shall be placed the name of ev
ery man employed in the highway's
Some of the suggestions are fanciful,
of course. That which proposes a pan
theon "somewhere along the line in
which shall be gathered the remains of
each president Is one. This plan pro
vides that each succeeding president
shall find sepulture here when his life's
work is done. The suggestion to have
statues of the military and naval he
roes grouped in a temple constructed
upon a field to contain reproductions
of all the appliances of warfare in the
history of the country is being dis
cussed. There have been suggestions
from those favorable to the Idea of ex
pansion that somewhere along the
route there shall be something not
yet defined which will convey to the
mind of the citizen of other years the
Dffort of this "government to civilize
and elevate the peoples of the colonial
An enthusiastic member of the
Mount Vernon Avenue association said
to a New York Sun reporter:
"Before the close of 1000 the country
will wltnessthe beginning of the na
tional boulevard. Already we have re
ceived letters from people In many
states .offering to agitate the movement
as soon as we shall indlmte what Is
wanted. Capitalists haTe sent word
they may be relied upon, and the mo
ment we got fairly under headway the
student, artist, sculptor and artisan of

highway wll be an academy of honor
for the exhibit of their work the like
of which no nation on earth can ever
hope to surpass or even try to imitate."
Thrashing Engine Used to Transport
Grain From Farm to Mnrkct.
A. J. Wakefield of Sioux Falls, S. D.,
has found a new use for thrashing en
gines which promises to revolutionize
the present method of transporting
grain from the farms of South Dakota
to the nearest market points.
As an experiment he tied live wag
ons together and, after loading them
with an aggregate of -100 bushels of
wheat, coupled the thrasher engine
with .which he had garnered the grain
to .the string of wagons and started for
Fanlkton. Thp trip of in miles wni I

made in six hours, says the Chicago In
ter Ocean.. Wakefield had but one as
sistant During the trlp'of the curi
ous train along the country roads the
farmers living along the route tem
porarily abandoned their work in order
to watch the strange sight. When the
unusual procession entered Faulkton,
it attracted the attention of hundreds
of townspeople.
Wakefield carefully noted the man
ner in which the engine hauled Its
load and Is satisfied that the capacity
of the engine is sufficient to haul dou
ble the number of loaded wagons
transported on the "experimental trip.
It is therefore his purpose to haul
about 1,000 bushels of grain on the
next and subsequent trips. Several
good results are noticeable from the
Notwithstanding the consumption of
coal, the employment of the thrasher
engine makes, in Wakefield's opinion,
a considerable saving both in time and
money over the usual method of haul
ing grain to market with horses. Fif
ty bushels of grain is an ordinary load
for a team of horses. Thus the 490
bushels hauled by the thrasher engine
on the experimental trip would have
required ton trips if hauled by team.
