Civic League Column
Meetings, First Friday of Bach Month.
The annual mooting of the
League will he held Friday
afternoon, at 8:80, as usual in
the Court Boom.
This marks the cloSe of the
Second year of the League's
work ami we think wo may
justly say that it baa been an?
other sn icossfu] year, and that
tho wotk is growing and
spreading in a most satisfac?
tory way. There is limitless
work to he done, ami it all goes
slowly, but we hope that the
now year, commencing with
our next meeting, will be
crowned with still greater suc?
cess and more accomplished.
Let us remind all members to
be on hand Friday for the elec?
tion of new officers for tlu? year
anil to hear the yearly reports
from all the Comtnittoos,
Any new members wishing
to join the League this year, we
would be pleased to have them
attend this meeting and start
out fresh with US, and we sin
cerely hope that our new rcsi
dents will fool an interest in
this work and join us.
It would simplify matters
greatly if all members brought
their duos, $1.00 i) year, for the
coming year with them and
hand it to the Treasurer at this

Thou werkest itevct alone ,

Our thoughts are naturally
turning with the spring tune tu
spring Dowers and the planting
of our gardens. The League
has written to mil eltieient rep?
resentative, Congress ma n
Slemp, for Heeds, to which he
has responded very promptly,
and the Private Home Commit
tee hopes to have them in hand
to distribute very shortly.
We Should also like to remind
our members, should they in
tend doing any outside order
ing, of the florists who so
generously responded to appeals
for the prizes for the Flower
Show last Summer, ami sug?
gest, if ihey tind it practicable,
to place their orders with the
following: The Bristol Floral
Co., Bristol, Va Tenn.j w. it,
Gray, Oakton, Fairfax county,
Va.; Thomas Median ami Sons,
German town, Pa.; Henry A.
Dreer, 711 Chestnut Str. et,
Philadelphia, Pa.
The League would like to
notify the general public that
it expects to have its annual
Flower Show again this sum
mer, and very probably a
Chrysanthemum Snow in the
fall, and urges every one to
begin making preparations
early and in ample time to have
a great and varied display this
The League notices with real
pleasure that the town authori?
ties have been busy cleaning
out tho gutters in the business
section. This little work gave
an uirof real improvement, ami
it is hoped that it is the begin
niug of the thorough spring
cleaning which is to come,

ministered a well deserved
rebuke to ,i party In court this
week, who had sworn oul a

been very badly treated by
being sold spoiled meat, or at

came up in court on an appeal
from a Justice's court, the said
complainant know nothing
whatever. Judge Skeon warn
ed him and others who swore
OUt warrants under such con
ditions that they would be lu Id

also paid his compliments to
