Development according to plan Is
the order of progress In the national
capital. The work of Improving the
Ibeautlfnl city on the banks of the Po
tomac Is not going forward In a hap
hazard, hit and miss fashion, but Is
proceeding along lines carefully
thought out by a commission assigned
to the duty by authority of congress.
Hhls commission had as its chairman
(Daniel H. Burnbam of Chicago, the
other members having been Augustus
St Gaudcns, Charles McKlm and
JJTcderlck Law Olmstcad. First pre
paring a sculptured model of the city
as it existed in 1002, they then caused
to bo made a model showing the city
as it should be built according to an
The Future Washington.
In one of the rooms of the magnifi
cent library of congress may be seen
the plans of Washington as the com
mission found It in 1002 nnd as they
hope lo have It appear to the genera
tions of the future. And the plan of
the city to come Is not merely a dream.
Already the work is in hand.
The preliminary plans for many
groups of now public buildings, nota
bly that of the bureau of engraving
and printing, on which Is to be ex
pended $2,000,000, have also been ap
proved. Avenues more magnificent
than those of which Major l'Enfant
even dreamed arc already In their
formative state, nnd It will not be
many years before the Inaugural pa
rades will forsake the great thorough
fares of Pennsylvania avenue and pass
from the cnpltol directly west to the
.great monument along a boulevard the
like of which has not yet been seen.
Bureau of Republics.
The bureau of American republics Is
an Institution supported by twenty
one republics' of the Americas for the
promotion of commerce and trade and
for the cultivation of peace nud
friendship. At the present time It is
housed In n building on Pennsylvania
avenue near the White House, but it
has in process of construction a white
marble building south of the Corcoran
gallery, on the grounds of the old Van
A Historic Mansion.
For a long time the Van Ness man
sion was one of the historic buildings
of the city. It was built by Latrobc,
one of the architects of "the capital,
.for General John P. Van Ness, who
married Mnrchi Burns, daughter of
Davie Burns, one of the original land
holders of the city. "Crusty Davie
Burns" lived in a rude cottage near
the river and cultivated a large plan
tation extending over the spot where
the White House now stands. The
demand for his land made hlin
wealthy, nud his only child, Mnrcia,
was known as the beautiful heiress of
(Washington. For some time Burns
was opposed to the projected transfer
of land to the government, and the
president nnd commissioners had sev
eral conferences with him. On one of
these occasions the choleric Scotchman
answered one of Washington's argu
ments by this outburst: "I suppose,
Mr. Washington, you think people are
going to take every grist from you as
pure grain. But what would you have
been If you hadn't married the rich
Legend of the White Horses.
General Van Ness, a well born New
Yorker, was one of many suitors for
the hand of Marcla Burns. lie be
came a resident of Washington, living
at first with his bride In the old cot-
"tage, which she would never permit to
be taken down. Ho became mayor of
the city. His portrait was painted by
Gilbert Stuart. The mansion erected on
the Burns estate was one of the finest
in the country and the resort of the
distinguished people of Washington.
In Oak Hill cemetery Van Ness had
erected a tomb in Imitation of the tem
ple of Vesta. On each anniversary of
his death the legend has it that his
favorite troop of six white horses
make a ghostly midnight gallop
around the old mansion. Whether the
bureau of American republics will In
herit the ghostly horses with the site of
tho ancient mansion remains to be seen.
Down the Potomac by Trolley.
In these days of trolley cars and in
terurban connections it Is no longer
necessary to sail down the Potomac to
reach Mount Vernon, although that is
always a pleasaut trip. The Washing
ton, Alexandria and Mount Vernon
trolley cars carry passengers along the
river's wooded shores, pass through
quaint old Alexandria and on to an
entrance of the estate leading to the
rear of the manulon house. The train
crosses a bridge which has replaced
the famous old Long bridge over which
the Union nrmy marched in the sixties,
a privilege denied the Confederate

Its state regents holds and cares for

from the nation tho fear that tho first

It is doubtful If the small roll of hair

What Is sold to be the most extraor

record happened at Algiers In 1800. A
man named Fogllo was arrested'by tho
French police at tho instance of the
Italian government. He was suspected
of complicity in a Sicilian murder
crime, nnd It was known that he was
member of the Mafia. In Jail he
weakened and promised to tell the
whole story on condition that his life
was spared. Two mornings later his

on the floor, stabbed to the heart. The

tho body lay a scrap of paper with the
words, "So perish traitors," in Italian.
To this day tho mystery of that death

How to Train.
For all who may contemplate entering
this race, the following suggestions
Long walks and slow jogging should
always be given a course of training for
distant running. Whenever a dilliculty
in breathing is felt, the athlete should
walk until his powers of respiration lime
recovered. He should never git or stand
around uncovered, but as soon as his
work is done, cover up warmly until an
opportunity to bo rubbed down is given
him, and then dry, warm clothes should
While running, the athlete should stop

or the front part of his lower ley be
The djet should be simple, sleep abun

and the like.

The approaching completion of the
