Main Features of New Struc
ture at Washington.

A place in whieh 20,000 persons can
move about without crowding una iti
which an assemblage of 5,000 persons
would hardly bo characterized as a
crowd is a general description which, it
is said, will fit tlie inclosed passenger
concourse of the new Union station to
bo built by the Pennsylvania and the
Baltimore and Ohio railroad companies
. in Washington, says the New York
Commercial Advertiser. This station
with its approaches will cost $14,000,
000, and it will be the largest and most
costly if not the handsomest railroad
station in the world.
A general description of the station
has recently been prepared. Marble,
steel, glass, mahogany and bronze are
the materials to be used In the con
struction of this great building, and
Lurnhnm of Chicago, the architect of
the famous "White City," has evolved
some new ideas for what ho terms
"an appropriate gateway to the na
tion's capital."
This structure will have a frontage
of 700 feet, with a depth of 3."0 feet
and a height of 100 feet. Three great
arches, each thirty feet wide and fifty
feet high, will open into a vestibule
with triple domes, sixty odd feet high
and thirty-five feet in diameter. And
from within this vestibule there will
be a Ttsta through arches nnd domes
of more than 300 feet on either side.
Built on classic lines, this ' structure
will be impressive as well for symme
try as for its masslveuess.
Much of the interior of the station,
embracing an area approximating 100,
000 square feet, will have a clear apace
overhead of 100 feet. Although it may
contain thousands of people, there will
be no lack of fresh air. The main
waiting room will have a barrel vault
' ceiling 100 feet high and a floor space
2."0 feet long and 100 frot'wldo. The
main dining room is to be Cm by 100
feet In dimensions, with a height of 30 ;
feet, and there is to be a ticket lobby
110 feet long, 51 feet wide and about
05 feet high. These are but three fea
tures of a wonderfully capacious and
comprehensive building designed for
the comfort and convenience of trav
elers. Perhaps the , most remarkable
section of the structure will be the
great passenger concourse, which runs
the entire length of the main building
and is entirely im-loscd, being 130 feet
wide and r,0 feet high. This will bo
as attractive as artistic decoration can
make it, and there will be enough room
in it to give 10,000 persons a square
yard of room each to stand in.
Besides its handsome furnishings in
mahogany, this station will have all of
the modern appliances for public com
fort nnd convenience. Baggage will be
handled below the street level, and
there will be numerous underground
tramways to carry it from one part of
the building to another. It Is expected
that it will take about two years to
complete this station.
Even Wall street Is showing some
dilliculty in distinguishing between
trust and distrust Washington Post.

"My mother is a poor widow," the
lad said, "and after I had reached the
second grade in the grammar school
she found she would need my help.
There was nothing for me to do but
go to work in one of the Lowell mills.
I started out to look for a job, and on
my way I thought of the rules I found.
I said to myself: 'If I go to work in a
mill in Lowell, that will be the last of
me. I must get an education before I
can hope to be anybody or any big
service to my mother.' I turned back
and never went near the mill.
"A friend of my mother told her that
I might get a chance at Newton school
at Newton, N. J. I went there and
worked six weeks, but found that I
could not earn money enough to pay
for such clothes as the professor told
mo I must have. I bought a football
rig, and that used up my money, for I
had earned only $35. I packed up and
left Newton and went to Nyack. There
was no .room for me in the prepara
tory school there. The proprietor is

school when Mr. Holly, who now pub

The co-eds of Missouri university gave
an exhibition the other day whic h for
novelty and startling features broke
all records at Columbia, Mo. The show
was called "The Midway."
All males were barred, but a howl
ing mob of students crowded the cam
pus and tried vainly to get in. Two of
them took advantage of the fact that
the girl participants entered the hall
disguised as Indians' and negroes and
got past the guards dressed as negro
women. Their sex was discovered by
the size of their feet. Four girls dress
ed as policemen rushed upon them,
clubbed them until they fell to the
floor and then threw them out of the
front door.
A country fair, with other features,
was represented, including side shows
In little tents pitched In the corridors,
a baby show, a shooting gallery, a tlo
ral hall, a race track, an animal show,
n street parade and other features.
Wives of the professors took a promi

and appeared ns freaks in the side
To keep up the delusion girls dressed
as farm hands and "dead gauie sports"
engaged at Intervals In rough and tum
ble tights. The girls garbed as police
men rushed upon them and apparently
beat them into submission with their
clubs. A girl dressed as a football man,
padded suit, nose guard and all, for a
time stood off the entire police force,
but was finally overpowered.
A band of Indians created much dis
turbance by flirting with the wild, wo
men In the side shows, but were finally
driven off by the police. A ringmaster,
with a huge mustache, bossed the show.
She was frequently called upon to
quell riots at the shooting gallery and
at the baby stand, where the girls
threw balls at the dummies with sur
prising accuracy. One girl bowled over
five "tar babies," as they call them, in
A special feature was a grand pa

patch. Ihe same tendency has mani

Ooveruor McLaurin was in the execu

in the penitentiary. When Governor
Longino came, with the Baptist pref

Mrs, Arabella Elliott of Kokomo,
Ind., recently testified in court that for
two years of her married life her hus
band, Henry II. Elliott, insisted that
they should live on beans, says the
Chicago Record-IIera Id. They had beans
for breakfast, beans for dinner and
beans for supper. It was beans, beans,
beans until she heard tho rattling of
beans In the flapping of the vines
against the corner of the dear little
cottage. She had beans in her dreams,
and in her waking fancies all the
world became a pod, and all the men
and women in it were merely beans.
Finally ehe got Mr. Elliott to change
off to potatoes, but he pined for beans,
and, fearing that he would insist on re
turning to them, she sued for divorce.
A Coat o( Kid.
A novel garment affected just now
by the belles of Vienna and Paris is a

kid. It is worn with very smart trav

coats in general. Kid is quite a fa

Read What Your Neighbors Say and

The curative qualities of Paw Paw is no
longer a question. Skeptics and doubters
must admit that this new vegetable pepsin
is likely to revolutionize the practice ot
medicine. There is no "guess it will
cure," or "perhaps it will cure." The
sworn testimony ot some of our best known
citizens must stand as unimpeachable evi
dence. Hundreds of people who received
a free sample bottle of Munyon's Paw
Pavv have testified in the most positive
manner that they have been cured of dvs
pepsia, indigestion and nervous troubles.
The testimonies that have been published
are not from people living in other states,
but are from well-known citizens living
right here in our midst. They can be seen
and the testimonials can easily be verified
Professor Munyon wants the public to
know the truths and he asks those who
have any doubt of the genuineness of these
testimonials to see the people themselves.

LeulesH Youth (aoc Senator Fair
bunks to iSeiirly Mis Ilia Train.
Legless Joe llarty, a fifteen-year-old
newsboy, whose post is in front of th
Auditorium theater in Chicago, counts
among his best- friends the "cab'y"
horses stationed in front of the Audi
torium Annex hotel on the opposite side
of the street, says the Chicago Inter
Ocean. His friendship is reciprocated
by the dumb animals, and thereby
hangs a tale of how a United Slates
senator missed his train a few nights
Senator Fairbanks, anxious to catch
a train for Indianapolis, rushed out of
the Annex entrance about 5:30 o'clock
the other evening and looked about for
the carriage he had engaged to take
him to the station, lie scanned the
line of carriages, but the one he had
engaged was not to be seen among
them. Then the senator glanctu across
the road and saw as picturesque a sight
of city life as may be imagined.
The carriage was standing in front of
the theater, and almost beneath the
feet of the horse was legless Joe pat
ting the animal and talking to it, and
he was doing something also which the
senator did not see until he crossed the
street. The boy was feeding the Lorse
lump sugar. . '
"Isn't that ad expensive habit?" the
boy was asked.
"Maybe," he replied, -but I like the
horses, and they like me. See?"
And then the crippled youth called
out, "Charlie:" Alio! her horse on the
opposite side of the road pricked up Its
ears, strolled across the road and got
his share of the sweets.
"The horses all know Jim," said the
cabbies. "We can't keep thorn at their
stands when he is around."
Dliiieimlonn ot Panama, and lt Ke
source. Tanatna, the South American state
which has proclaimed its Independence
of Colombia, includes the isthmus of
Panama to the confines of Costa Kica,
and its area is 32.380 square miles,
says the Philadelphia Public Ledger.
About half the territory, principally in
the middle and western parts, Is set
tled. The remainder is peopled only by
a few roving Indians. The grazing in
dustry lias attained some, Importance
in the western districts; agriculture is
everywhere backward, and the manu
factures are Insignilicant.
Gold is mined in small quantities,
and coal and other minerals are re
ported. The forests are rich in cabinet
Woods. The pearl fisheries of the Pa
cific coast have existed since the con
quest and are still important.
Panama was the first region In con
tinental America settled by Europeans.
The isthmus was incorporated with
the vice royalty of New Granada in
1T1S. It was independent from 1S."7
to 1SG0. The population at the last
enumeration (ISS5) was 315,000.
' The capital and largest city Is Pan
ama, founded In 1510 by Pedro Arias
Davila. Its population is 25.000. The
old city, six miles southeast of the pres
ent one, was burned in 1070 by Henry
Morgan, the buccaneer. This Is now
marked only by ruins. The new city
lias suffered greatly from revolutions
and II res.
Among tho Interesting buildings are
the cathedral, one of the largest In
America; convents nnd the palace of
the andicncla. The climate is warm
and damp, but i.i.t- healthful than
that of other parts of the Isthmus.

Trinity church in Postou instituted

the other day, says the New York
Times. In a general sense it Is an
adaptation of secular school methods
to those of the Sunday school.
Discipline will be strictly maintained.
truancy will not be permitted, and
punctuality in attendance Is to be re
quired, as in the public schools. Pu
pils who cannot fulfill the requirements

The object of the new system is to nf
