At the request of the commission,
Mayor Staley will issue a proclama
tion naming Tuesday, April 24th, as
park day, when all will lend their
efforts toward the beautifying of
Pullman's park property. The com
mission proposes to make the occasion
a gala day, and the demonstrations
will be in the nature of a picnic, the
citizens being expected to appear on
the scene at about eight o'clock in
the morning with implements of war-
Are and well filled lunch baskets. Hot
coffee will be provided on the grounds.
The committee will direct the work
within the grounds, the first efforts
probably being toward the cleaning

No town in the Northwest is so for
tunate as Pullman in regard to park
property. In addition to Reaney's
park, one of the most beautiful spots
imaginable, with its elms and poplars,
and its artesian well, there is the
larger park, containing some fifteen
acres, purchased by popular subscrip
tion and deeded to the city. It is on
this last named property that the main
efforts of park day will be directed.
Various plans for the development of
this park are under consideration.
One that has met with decided favor
has been to lay out a [drive way or
boulevard, making a handsome drive
way around the property. A baseball
diamond will also be one of the fea
tures. Stock will hereafter be kept
from the property and the trees will
be protected, and if everyone does his
duty, Pullman's city parks will soon
be among its chief attractions.
