The week just closed 1ms , on account , of
general preparations for the observance and
the propoy celebration for the glorious
Fourth of July , beuu quiet , very quiet. Yet
there are several occurrences worthy of note.
Fo ? instance , from Armstrong , Neb. , comes
the following chunk of information :

tlic'il.spii'itb Is not new by any means. Indeed ,
cci'tuin voters who arc not " /eatous disciples
of liacelius" have been guilty of the same
conduct with far Iffs provocation.
Another correspondent writes his country

The usual visitor at' the national capitol
is generally shown nbput the building by
frjcnds or by one of the numerous guides
who make their headiiual'ter.s In the rotunda.
The trip takes him through rooms and
passages which have been described over
and over again. Tlio newspaper-reading pub
lic is familiar with the ascent'of tlio dome ,
the halls of both houses of congress , the
marble room and lobbies.'Hut the vast dimen
sions of the building enable it to contain
many nooks ami corners which the ordinary
sight-seer has neither time nor opportunity
From general appearances the capitol con
sists of two stories and u basement , but be
neath this is a sub-basement which extends
under the whole building. Immedi
ately under the dome in this
sub-basement ono can enter , by
a dark narrow p.issago , the place which U
termed the crypt. This is u large , unllghted
room of circular form in which at ono time it
was proposed to place the remains of Wash
ington. However , the plan could not bo car
ried out on account of tlio objections of some
of his relatives. At the pivsjnt time , the
only use made of this apartment Is to store
in it thn catafalque upon which have rested
the bodies of various statesmen who have
lain in state In the rotunda. This piece of
furniture , heavily draped in black , lends a
solemnity to the room wliMi was intended to

departments appertaining to each brunch
of congress. Kach house has its ventilating
department , its folding-room and its restau
rant. The hall of the house nnd also of the
senate , being situated in the center of their
respective wings of the building , have no
windows , and consequently obtain their sup
ply of Jrosh uir through ; ducts which cpen
under the hollow lloor. flikowisc the impure
air is drawn off by pipc.j lending from tlio
room above the hall.Tlio machinery by
which this is accomplished is stationed In u
largo room m the nub-basement. It consists
of engines , largo steam funs , etc. The air Is
drawn through an underground passage
leading under tlio walks ami vaults from a
small tower In the grounds. Hut there
nro other uir-ducts which open under
thu walks In different places around the
building. The air is , of course , heated before -
fore being sent Into the hull. For
tbis , the vaults beneath the walks surround
ing the capital are utilized to hold the boilurs
ami heating apparatus. Vl'liese vaults nro
very numerous and are u'fcd for various pur
poses. Homo contain coal , while others are
used by the carpenters , plumbers , electri
cians , or as store-rooms.
Not far from the ventilating fans is a
largo room used as ' a kitchen to supply the
restaurant immediately above it. This is
furnished with all the culinary nppliunces ,
but is conducted by private parties subject to
the rules laid down by congress. Next
to the kitchen are the folding-rooms.
The vast number of public documents sent
out each year by members of congress must
bo securely wrapped or enclosed in envel
opes. For this purpose a fcnmll armies of men
nro employed who make ttieir headquarters
in this part of the building. Their rooms are
packed with books , wapplug > paper and
Hut documents for the 1mmeniato use of
congressmen are stored in n. dhTcrcnt place.
The document room of the house Is a small
passage leading' from statuary hall , besides
the gallery of .the old house of rcprcscnta- .
lives. In the senate , tills department
is directly above the corridor leading to the ,
rotunda. Hchlnd this U .the seriate library

supreme court room. This is the old portion
of the building which was partially burned
by the Hritish In ISM and ono can still see
traces of old wooden beams a ml laths peep
ing out through the broken plaster. The
dust of ages awaits the intrusion of some
curious Individual. The existence of the
place is not , generally known and consequently
quently it is seldom entered. V. 1C.
