There are 4,000 feet ot them , and thirty-five
faucets , either of the latter giving a stioam as
strong as any hydrant In the city. A barrel
Is stationed at each faucet , to bo filled with
lee packed away lu water. Thus each person
attending the encampment will have plenty
of leo water. The white "army duck" habit
ations in their neat tiimness and regular
rows present a very enlivening appearance ,
while away to the south and cast strains ot
music are wafted from the camp
of regulars who are llvlnc their

with a seating capacity of ' _ ' , MK ) , which fionts

First National itiink Fnrnlttire.
The contract for furnishing the inter
ior equipment for the First National
Hank building has been awarded to A. II.
Andrews it Co. , of Chicago. The com

upon the merit of the design submitted.- '
The award was made after very careful
consideration , nnd the banking room
will bo handsomely equipped. The
character of the design selected ia
in the Romanesque or Anglo-Norman.
All of tlio wood work will beef
of the choicest mahogany. Marble will
bo cudolythic. All metal will bo of cop
per , and the contract will bo actively
pushed in order that the building may bo
occupied at the earliest posRiblo date. A.
