part of the city of Washington, is one
of the places of interest that many visi
tors and residents of the District have
failed to enjoy, merely because of the
lack of proper transportation facilities to
properly convey sight-seers through the
park. Adjoining Rock Creek Park is the
Zoological Park, containing besides a
very large variety of animals from all
over the world Ihe identical old buffalo
whose picture is so familiar, he being the
model of design used on the late issue of
ten-dollar silver certificates.
Starting yesterday arrangements were
made to run a motor bus line from 18th
street and Columbia road, through the
Zoological Park, across one of the fords,
through Rock Creek Park in all its pri
meval beauty, continuing along the edge
of Rock Creek over the elegant roads
and stopping for connection with the
Chevy Chase cars at Connecticut avenue.
The bus again enters the park and con
tinues along Beach drive to 7th street,
making connections with the Brightwood
car line. Then a half-hour trip back
through the park where man has changed
nothing but the roads, through the ford
again, and stopping at Dobyn's phar
macy. at ISth street and Columbia road,
j The trip consumes one hour.
This bus line now provides excellent
! means of taking care of picnic parties,
j who formerly were restricted to the out
! skirts of the park. The motor bus leaves
1 fith street and Columbia road every hour
on the hour, from 8 a.m. until il p.m.
