Henderson Wank a Park.
A meeting was held in the court
house on Monday night to consider
the matter of opening up a park and
playground for Henderson.
Mr. R. S. McCoin laid before the
meeting Mr. Robert Lassiter's offer
of ten acres, of land, just beyond .Mr.
Edwin Stephens' residence, for a term
of five years on the condition that a
street leading to this property be
opened.
Mr. McCoin also stated that some
of the lots just out of Henderson, in
a westerly direction, might be se
cured at a small cost. These lots
were offered to the city for a park a
few years ago. but as no steps were
then taken to secure them for that
purpose, the3r had since leen sold to
private individuals.
Mr. McCoin agreed to look into
this matter and lay it before the
Civic League at its next meeting. It
was thought not to be a wise policy
to spend money on private property,
but it is said that land is so much in
demand around the city that there
is not a tract that can now be
bought.
Tlie site just west of the city is an
ideal one for a park, but it U too
rolling for a ball ground. At a meet
ing to be held at the courthouse
Thursday evening, April 20th, at 8
o'clock, this matter will be consid
ered further, and it is hoped that
some definite action will be taken.
A High School for Henderson.
The mat ter of establishing a high
school for the city of Henderson,
separate and apart from the city
graded schools, is now receiving se
rious consideration by quite a num
ber of representative citizens. It is
believed that after pupils have pass
ed the seventh grade it is much bet
terto have them in a school sepa
rate from that for the smaller chil
dren, and that it would be a greater
incentive to them to do their best
work. Such a school in an entirely
separate building in another sect ion
of the city, with nice society halls,
good library and other modern
equipment has come to he recogniz
ed by many leading citizens as a nec
essary addition to our growingcityT's
public school facilities. It would
prove to be one of the very best ir
ventments Henderson could possibly
make, and such a school is now eae
il v within our reach.
Two Nice! Little Bouquets.
