But. more important than all ata that Mr. Bay?
ard brought, waa the log of th?^ Mayflower, which,
on the recommendation of the Archbishop of Can?
terbury, was taken from Ita repos! ti ry In the
? -?', Palact librar] and given to Mr Bayard
to be delivered to the Governor of Maaaachu

time, there waa consid?rai le talk because the lo? j

This leg !.< a valuable acquisition to the old Bay
State's historical treasures. It was found In London
In 1S4?, and is bound in vellum, with half defaced
words on one cover, among which can be made out
the name ol Mary Bradford. There are several
hundred pages contained In it, covering the history
of ih" Plymouth Colony from I'M to l<H?. On one :

The mo?: Important undertaking a*h'.ch the De
f-artment now ha3 on hand is the completion of
Riverside Park. As everybody knows, this park
la about three miles long;, and lies for the most
part between the Riverside Drive and the river,
but probably few of those who bars walked, ridden
or driven trom Seventy second et north to Clare
mont realize that- there are a hundred acres of
park land along the beautiful drive. Much of it
cannot bo seen from the drive at all To view it
properly, one must bo on the water, and i; is with
rhis thought In mind that the plans for completing
ar.d planting the park have been formed. An ap?
propriation of MM.WO \a-> been nadC for this pur?
pose, and when the scheme Is carried out the
wiiole front of the elllt will be covered with low
growir.g hushes, shrubs and trees. In apeakigg of
this matter with a representative of The Tribune
a few .!r?ys ago. Park Superintendent Samuel Par
"The work hero is exceptionally difficult on ac?
count of the nature of the soil and the large
amount of rook. It will probably require more than
I 1,000 worth of mould to enable tho plantations to
be atartad ri?ht. We intend to plant large nunbera
of native trees and shrubs, such as azaleas, hor.ey
auckle?, Virginia creepers, periwinkle, hockleberrjr
and other bushes that grow low. dogwoods, ?snow?
balls, apireas, weigeilas, and so on. Then there
are plans for a number of building? in the park
half a dosen COttSgeS, ?'? dairy, a ?belter, for the
us.? of cyclists and other people-and no one can
tell how much they will cost. If the park cos-?,
when completed. $1 .?yo.my?, it will not be an estrsva
gant outlay There are a hundred acres la it. In
"'entrai Park there are eight hundred acres, snd
the cost of construction there is put at BMOgOtt."
