AN ARCHITECT'S ORIGINAL SCHEHE FOR BEAUTIFYING RICHHOND CITY Jr^frr Sr/f,ssr 'Block ??ftN scalbA-/ Captain M. J. Dimmock, the well known archlctect. has thought out and drawn a scheme for Improving the new resident areoj? of tho city. The accompanying Il? lustration presents his original conception of tho most attractive and practlcabln manner of building up the outlying sec? tions for comfort and sanitation. The scheme Is to utilize the rear of the building lots backing upon the public al? ley by converting this space Into a grass plot or court, which will gVi'e air space and a pleasing outlook from the rear win? dows of the adjoining residences, which Is generally most unattractive and dirty. This court can be used as a playground for children instead of the use of the street for this purpose, where they are in danger of Injury by passing vehicles. As a further development of this scheme, a heating plant might be Installed in the basement of a building located In tho Cold Cleanliness The Wilkie WDLKE REFRIGERATOR, OAK EXTERIOR.

The upper or ground floor of this boiler house could bo used as a pavilion In all seasons for the use of the children. This scheme- can only be carried out by tho mutual con? sent of the property owners who would waive no title right to this portion of their lots, but It would be an agreement, made for the benefit of all concerned, and tho property to bo sold and bought under such conditions. The illustration Indi? cates a now area without buildings, nn-l In that event, the lots would front thirty six feet,-with n depth of seventy-six feot, with a four-foot private alley between each block, and the architect has shown by his plans that this area covered by tho buildings will give ample capacity for a family of seven persons on a floor with a most nRreeahlo arrangement of Interior plan.

While the scheme as Illustrated Is for new unoccupied areas.

The fact Is, however, that they nearly all have tho same disease, and that dis? ease Is chronic catarrh. Thousands of people have chronic ca? tarrh and do not know it. They realize that they are slak, but they do not suspect tbeliy disease Is chronic catarrh. If they have catarrh of the stomach, they call It dyspepsia; if they have gen? eral oatarrhal debility, they call It ner? vous prostration; If they have catarrh of the liver or kidneys, they sny thoy are bilious or have kidney disease; and If they have catarrh of the pelvic organs they name It fem?le weakness. The truth Is, nil these organs are sub? ject to catarrh, and tho land is full of tolling women, half Invalids, who have chronic cntarrh In some stage or form of some of these orgnns.
