We want to suggest a matter to the
Park. Commissioners that we believe
would be largely ior the" city's good.
It is this: Have a man, or two men em
ployed whose duty it shall bo to cut
the grass in the parks in the city with
a lawn mower, and keop it cut!
This process would bring about a
great improvement in the' appearance
o'f our "breathing places" and would
change them from fields to real parks.
As it now is full enjoyment cannot be
had from the parks for the reason that
tbe long grass prevents walking about,
with any degree of comfort If the,
lawns were cut with a lawn mower,
and closely looked after for weeds,
our numerous parks would be improv

JohnT. Hutchison Married
In -the Cincinnati Enquirer of Mon
day, the 25th appeared a telegram from
St. Augustine, Florida, as follows:
St, Augustine, Flu., May 24. John T.
Hutchinson, of Marietta, Ohio, and
Mrs. Georgiana Allen were married
here last night. Mr. Hutchinson -is
nearly 80 years old and is said to ha
wealthy. Mrs. Allen is about 70 and is
the widow of John Allen, for years
prominent in this city's politics. Mrs.
Allen also has considerable property.
John Allen died a few months ngb. 1
Shortly after his death the widoW
inserted a "Husband wanted" ad-,
yertisement in a Western paper. Mr.
Hutchinson answered the ad. nnd a
correspondence ensued. It was finally'
agreed that he should come here, arid
if, oninspection, the widow liked him,
marriage would follow. Mr. Hutchin
son arrived lata yesterday afternoon.
The widow met him at the depot and
after scanning him closely through her
glasses, said: "You'll do." The-couple
then proceeded to the Courthouse-ancM
secured a license. They then.-called in
the Rey. Mr. Wiggins, who, at 8 o'clock,?
made them man and wife. Although
very old, they are seemingly as'friskyi

The "Story of the u Reformation" as'

well done, and the principal characters
very happily cast.
Mrs. Monroe is a grand talker, and
her lecture abounded in much that
