contemplates 12 arches centering af

si s.t -mi-circle, extending to each Sec
ond avenue corner of the square. Two
of the arches wili be 21 feet high and
about :P feet wide, allowing mom for
the street cars and teams on either
side. The others will be about 1C feet
each way. The entire skyline of the
arches will be made of corn stalks
while small grain and pumpkins will
mark the caps of the upright supports.

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. All merchants
and business men having windows
fronting em Second avenue. are re
ep'.ested to leave the lights burning un
til 10 o'clock or later each evening.
