I After the ladies have labored so vigorously in planting flower beds (and transforming many vacant "eye sores" into gardens of attractiveness, 'Saturday afternoon witnessed a most 1 discouraging happening, when one 'of the members of the Association, who took pride and justly so in two large flower beds, she had per sonally supervised the const met ion 'of, at the south end of the Court House grounds, chanced to pass by, and found to her dismay, that two ' mules had been hitched right at the side of tho bods, and in their dis satisfaction at having to remain standing in the one place so long, had pawed great holes in the beds 'and mutilated the new buds and plants almost beyond restoruation. This ' should never have happened had the City officials after the ladies used their efforts to help beautify the Court House grounds attended .to their duties anil insisted that those who are in cliarge ot Keeping up iiiose premises look to such instances. These things are liable to happen no doubt, but not so, if those at the head of these affairs are attending to their business and see to it that those under them are doing likewise. Then, too, there is the same old 'chicken question arising again. The 1 Association does not wish to have to kill these valued yet disturbing fowls, but if they are permitted to I continue to run loose and destroy the gardens and property of those endeavoring to not only assist the Civic Society, but perhaps their own personal desires to have an attrac tive home, measures will be taken which will undoubtedly keep the offending birds from doing any more harm. Another subject brought up was, how to get rid of tho unsightly old buildings that tre doing no good around town, except to be used as signboards for the various advertise ments, that certainly do not help to make a city attractive. Other cities have taken this particular question in hand and in a short time, the disfiguring sing boards, and ramshackles have been replaced by email parks, and many pretty flower beds, that are very good evi dences that the town is going ahead instead of remaining satisfied with such conditions. Why not endeavor to make this a city that can lie truly spoken as going ahead, and begin right now to have these obstacles of progressiveness removed.
