A Wontlerrul Avenue
Magnolia uvenne, which has beun the
pride of Riverside from its founding,
und whicb has won a nutionnl reputa?
tion us a boulevard, has had two de?
fects. The streets lending to it were
usually dusty aud disagreeable, while
tho darkness of the avenue, owing to tho
dense foliage of tho overhanging pepper
trees, made ir a rather dismal evening
drive. All that is at an end. It is now
possible to drive from tho heart of town
over macadamized streets, perfectly frou
from tlust and mud, direct to the peer?
less Magnolia aveuuo, and if tho drive
be taken in the evening arc lights aro
encountered every 800 feet, giving
splendid illumination. When the ave?
nue is reached, there is presented such
a sight us few, if any, towns possces.
Tho electric, polt s are but I'M feet apart,
und from these brackets project about
throe feet. From each bracket bungs it
cluster of three incandescent lights cov?
ered with a refli ctor, which throws tho
light on to the driveway.
As ouo stands at one end of thin row
of lights but four or live of thorn can bo
distinguished as individual lights. Ihn
remainder forming a continuous chain
of lire whjoh seemingly stretches uwuy
for untold mile.- beneath tho verdant
canopy ol tho arching pepper trees.
Modern as is tho scene, it impresses the
behold) !? uri oriental fantasy worthy
of the Spanish .Moors. Tho imagined
extout of tho wondrous ohain of fire,
however, is in a degree an optical illu?
sion. Instead of being miles in length,
it is but a little over n mile. Instead of
there being untold thousands of lights,
ouo is amazed to learn that 1 hero aro
but 150, suspended from but 00 poles.
