Civic gardening Is contagious, and
tho Mower garden competition, by Its
Influence lias succeeded In transform
ing Northampton, Mass., once arather

quick and lasting returns, lias been
sfully established in many towns

organization should be made. If tills
motion passes, the chairman should
appoint, or the body elect, a commit
tee on constitution and by-laws, and
a nominating committee. Meetings
should should be held at least once a
month, except during November, De
cember and January, and the mem
bership fee should be so low, as to ex
clude no one. No existing organlxa-'

new one, unless such society already

In addition to the several hundred
of bulbs, flowers and (lowering hushes
donated and planted In the Park by
Mrs. Omar Williams and her two
daughters, Misses Lena and Madge
Iloyd, these were given and planted by
Mrs. O. K. Plummer a very choice as
sortment of flowers; also Mrs. Simpson
gave us a sprout of the old reliable
and ever acceptable snowballs, and
Mrs. Hugh liurrier brought iiscaunas
and dahlias. All these gifts were very
much appreciated and wc hope our
wishes will be realized, that In a few
years these ladles will behold before
their eyes ohe of the prettiest little
parks on the road from St. Joseph,
Missouri, to Council Bluffs, Iowa
Last week, the arcli designed and
.built by Mr. A. J. Wood, on the north
side of the park was tlnished. We re
gard It as a beauty In Its design, sym
metric, tlnUh and ornaments.
The park committee haa been very
busy this spring. Under their dlrec-
tlon thirty i
trees were planted,
I to replace some of those which died
1 during tho summer; the cannon was
i mounted, the llowers planted and the
1 arch was built. Some other Improve
ments are spoken of, but. wo will not
