Tlie City Cemetery.
Our City Cemetery covers a large
area of ground, but we are certain that
the ladies will sustain us in the asser
tion of the fact, well known to our
citizens, that it is one of the best kept
“Cities of the Dead” in the United
States. The hedges and borders of va
rious sections not attended to regularly
by private parties, have lately been
trimmed by the Keeper of tlie City
Cemeteries, Mr. James A. Bryan, who
is energetic and active in the discharge
of his duties, and has a force of work
men under him who take pride in their
work. At the pump well on the central
avenue anew pump-stock has been put
in, and steps placed on each side of the
platform for the convenience of ladies
who use the pump.
During the week the interior of the
Keeper’s office has been renovated. It
would be a great advantage if a larger
and more convenient office were pro
vided —one that would be a credit to
such an extensive cemetery. Since a
regular watchman —Mr. Fee Wilson —
has been employed, the pilfering of
choice flowers and shrubs from favor
ite bushes has ceased, and the ladies
now feel that the plants about the
graves of clear friends, attended to with
so much care, are secure from the
hands of thoughtless persons.
