The committee has requested all bus iness houses to elecorate their store fremts with bunting nnd farm products, anil occupants of floors above the-stree-t are asked to drape their win !ovs with red. white and blue cur tains. In order t have the decora tions as nearly uniform as possible, the committee requests that the bunt ins showing three narrow cetlore-d stripes be neit tised. but that the ma terial having only a single color in the entire width be adopted, particularly for street floor decorations. The effect ef these broader stripes is said to be much mere- satisfactory.
