Arrangements Being Con
sidered to Beautify
One of the most thoroughly dis
cussed and seriously considered
plans for "grander Washington" is
to build a great bridge over the Po
tomac, that famous river that serv
ed as a sort of dividing line between
the North and South during the re
bellion. Originally the projected
structure was called the "U. S.
Grant Memorial Bridge" and it was
intended to make it an elaborate
monument in honor of the General,
as well as the oiher heroes of the
war in rank and file. After a while
the Grant idea was abondoned qnd
the structure came to be called the
memorial bridge. Thus will it re
mind visitors to the capital that not
only was the blood of heroes shed,
but that after the conflict both sec
tions were reunited in a stronger
bond than before.
It was proposed at first to erect a
structure costing about $500,000,
but year by year the projectors have
developed the plan, until now it
calls for a $5,000,000 bridge. The
first drawing was made by Paul
Pelz, architect of the congressional
library. His perspective delinea
tion shows a massive affair, with
two great towers near the center.
A design similar to this has been
partly accepted by the government,
but objection has been raised to the
towers by an influential coterie here,
who are in favor of the specifica
tions of George Keller, of Hart
ford, Conn, luey provide tor an
arch at the approach,' but not for
any towers. The bridge would be
gin near the naval observatory, west
of the White House grounds, and
extend . with embankments to the
north limit and sate of Arlington

Caught a Dreadful Cold.
Marion Kooke, mauager for T. M.
Thompson, a large importer of fine
millinery at 103S Milwaukee Ave
nue, Chicago, says: "During the
late severe weather I caught a dread
ful cold which kept me awake at
night and made me unlit to attend
my work during the day.' One of
my milliners was taking Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy for a severe
cold at that time, which seemed to
relieve her so quickly that I bought
some for myself. It acted like
magia and I began to improve at
once. 1 am now entirely well and
feel very pleased to acknowledge its
merits." t or sale by W. J. Cox,
