lt's a great, big garden of beauty.
And the invisible sign over the en
trance reads: "Clean amusements."
For this is the ambition of Mrs. Ehtch

great folk mostly women and chil
dren or whole, families who frequent
the pretty place all summer long. .

some amusements.
A children's class in dancing is con
ducted a part of the afternoon on the
pavilion, and at the end of the-season
these children give an exhibition
of the steps they have learned.
There is- an excellent' -stock com
pany in which many national players
appear, giving nightly performances
at a reasonable price during th& sea
son in the theater on the grounds.
A good band, animals, flowers,
pleasant, cool nooks for picnicing and
plenty of good drinking water are
other accessories.
Mrs. Elitch Long started with a
very small place, entering the field
against other amusement places
where drinking and public dancing
thrive. At first it was difficult; an up
hill job with little remuneration.
Now it is clear sailing, with the best
element in the city behind the woman
who started out to give Denver clean
amusements in the summertime
where young folks and children might
safely go.
