Wu Imve been asked to make a trip
along Webster Street. We have done
so. 1'hoie are some well kept, lawns
on tills street, Mr. MeCotikey and ouo
in- two others on tlio west side, Mr.
Talt; Iiltner Ross, and one or two
others, on the east side, deserve great
commendation fur their efforts to
make this street attractive to the eye.
Oat there is room for' some vigorous
denunciation of others. Without re
ferring to individuals at present, look
at the Odd Fellows property.
I odd n:u.owrt
The Odd Fellows have, perhaps, the
most thriving lodge In the city. They
are the only fraternal organization
that owns the lot and building whero
thejnectlngs are held. They
leas once a week, aud their meetings
are p'robably better attended than the
meetings of any other order. Their
property is desirably located, and it
should be one of the show places
the city. Ik is not. If It has ever
been kept free from weeds and rub
blsli, we do not recall the time. It
has won and maintained a reputation
as one of the foulest, most neglected
corners of the city. Somebody needs
a good scolding. It is easy to scold
an unknown person.
"JU.W T T
TUB SCHOOL OROUSnh
Heretofore the school grounds have
been neatly kept. This year they are
anything but clean aud attractive.
True, they might be a great deal worfro,
but that is no excuse for their being
as disorderly as they are.
There is not a single block ou Web
ster Street deserving of praise. Next
to a well-kept lawn there will be a
straggling, broken down fence, un
painted, unsightly, and of no imagin
able use except to reveal the negli
gence and carelessness of the owner.
Or there will be some scattered bush
es, just enough to spoil the general
effect. On one lot there Is a limping
row of asparagus growing along the
pavement. Yet there Is no need of
snoh economy of ground. There Is
plenty of room, so that intensive agri
culture of this spcoies la not required.
i TH"K LINDKN
Any meutlon of Webster Street
would be Imperfect which failed to
note the bass wood tree at Sam Klzor's
Probably not one In a hundred knows
that theie is a llndou treo lu the city,
or what such a tree is like. Most of
us have hoard or read of the famous
street iu Berlin, Unter Den Linden,
nnd have been utterly regardloss of
tlio bass woods of. America. Mr. Kiz
er's tree does not seem to us as- Hour
isliingastlio tree of tlie famo vaiiety
Ht Robert MoBrldo's, or what used to
ho his lots ou Walnut Street.
Whether they are Ill's or spruces, wo
do not know. Thev wero set out, wo
into the most beautiful trcos iu tho
oity, but tho probability is that thoy
will bo suffered to die of neglect.
Of tho rosldeticcs ou WebUor Street
only ono dates back to tlio tinio when
the Chief lirst mado its appearance.
This is the house now occupied by
.lames Rvuii. It was built by Uncle
LuiiMooi'A in 1873. The house im-
' mediately south was built just bofoio
the grasshopper invasion and marked
theeud of Red Cloud's lirst boom.
All tho other Itousos 011 thestrrot weio
built after the coming of the railway,
aud mark tin second boom period.
but a little ill temper oma in a while
may be a good thing Tho Chief sug
gests that Mayor Turnuro appoint a
committee of u dozen ladles, who bhall
go ovor tho city at tho expiration o(
uuxb week, und make a detailed report
of every unulemied lot, every un
cleaned alley, overy weed patch, every
iinti'lv f ! "'i', i""t ! ' f 'own
fence, and givu the names of the lot
owners and residents who linvo no ic
gard for the cleiinlli.css and beauty of
the town in which they live. The
Chief will gladly publish the report.
