Fully five hundred pedestrians dered towards Congress Heights last Sunday to watch the developments of the park that Messrs. Barnes and Phillips, two of oar leading real estate men, are placing in their property in this fast-growing addition. This end of the city seems to attract all the crowds, as they seem eager to note the rapidity with which the work on the park is being poshed. A handsome pavilion is being erected and is nearing completion. The pavilion is of a neat bungalow effect and will be spacious and cool, and alluring to those who yearn for a resort during the warm sultry evenings of a hot summer. In this pavilion will be installed a soda fountain and other confectioneries which will be dispensed at all times to those visiting the park. It is assured that only the best Unes will be carried and that courteous treatment will be accorded all. All brush and under wood are being burnt and removed and all trees trimmed and cared for, No prettier a place coaid have been selected for a park This is i ndeed a veritable rest, and is ideally located. Large concrete walks lay all around it, and is at a convenient dist ance from the city. When the work on it shall have been completed, and the hundreds of lawn swings and seats will have been scattered throughout it, it will be one of the prettiest Uttle parks in the state, and will answer need. Greenwood has needed such a resort for yezrs and the citizens of this city are indebted to these progressive real estate men for their interest in their efforts toward the upbuilding of a town in which they evidence their faith. Next Sunday stroll out to the park and let these promoters know that you appreciate their work, and you will be surprised to note what progress is be ing made along that Une. mean a sore The Demon of the Air is the germ of LaGrippe, that, breathed in, brings suffering to thousands.

While the above positions are those for which the men will try out, still that does not nec e s sa rily mean that they will fill those positions in the end. Manager McCay stated this morning that it was probable that among the men signed for the infield there might be one who was a good shortstop and if such was the case he would transfer himself to second base or some other infield position. a O. at Cotton Men Building Offices. Messrs. Albert Aron and G. P. Elliott, well-known ootton buyers of this place and Greenwood, were here this week to let the contract for the erection of a building in which will be located seven cotton offices. This will add materially to the appearance of the town, for it re places shabby frame buildings with sub stantial brick structures. The coming season will no doubt, bring many buyers for the long staple which we hope planters will have in plenty to sell. And the "cotton row" will no doubt be rented before completed.—Itta Ron* Times.
