Judge Hydrlck said that Mr. Hous

Laaress Cemetery wu aerer clean
er or is better general condition Loaa
It la right now: mad. although Im.
proreawnt and beanti?catXHi is said1
to b*Te oelr Just begun, the work
already accomplished is a genuine
credit bo the city and ihovs what ct- *
ea a little money can do when placed
In loring bands.
Some months ago there was devised
s eomprehensire system of grading
and drainage throughout the ceme
tery by wblch to atop the constant i
washing doe to heavy rainfall. It j
was a difficult problem on account of
the steep slope and particularly be
cause the decline m the elevation is
not uniform. But what was lacking
in skill on the part of the workers j
was more than made op in earnest j
effort; and the result is that the roads!
and walks are now generally in good
condition whereas it only In a few
exceptional and very difficult cases!
that any rain water runs onto a lot I
from any road or walk.
Last spring the committee planted
flower seeds around a number of odd
spots In the angles of the roads; and.
as the season advanced, these waste |
places blossomed out with varl-col-!
ored flowers which added greatly to
tbe appearance of the place?not the
least attractive features being the
honey-suckle vines all over the front
fence and the morning glories on a
section of tbe south dividing line.
Just the other day a large force of
laborers was put to work, and the
entire cemetery was put in order by
going over the roads and walks, re
pairing water ways where needed,
cutting down a number of unnecessary
trees and cleaning tway all unsight
While tbe committee is much grat
ified?as it has every right and rea
son to be?at the progress made,
there are still some few of the official
rules and regulations which do not
appear to be clearly understood by
everybody. The flowers the commit*
tee planted, for exuiiiple, neic put
there to beautify the place as a whole
and not to be picked by individuals
i for any pun*>se whatever. And, when
j flowers on graves have withered, it Is
j expected that they be removed and
deposited in one or other of the
several receptacles placed at conve
nient Intervals for that purpose?not
thrown into an adjoining walk or
road. The rule excluding dogs seems
to have been overlooked by some; and
it is hoped that this courteous remin
der may be sufficient to bring the mat
ter to the thoughtful attention of ?hose
Interested. Playing and romping by
nrnall children has not been alto
gether discontinued in the cemeteiy
?though It had been hoped that thf
rule In regard thereto was rufllciSQtiy
explicit. And then one other ?hing
the committee distinctly objcclx to is
the practice of climbing over tho fol ce
(particularly at the lower gate; nni
using the cemetery as a sort of
thoroughfare. The public Is by no
means excluded from the cemetery
notwithstanding the fact that it is es
sentially not a public place; and vis
itors are always welcomed at any
reasonable hour and under the very
mildest restrictions. But the com
mittee would very greatly appreciate
the cordial co-operation of every In
dividual member of the community in
its endeavors to protect the cemetery
from any and all forms of desecration
and misuse; and the easiest way in
the world to lend a hand in this work
Is to simply recognize and accept the
cemetery as a place apart and not to
ever use it as a thoroughfare.
