To the parents of the little boyr and girls of Palo Alto: We wish to call your attention to the opening of the Palo AHo Kindergarten at 845 Waverly street on Monday, August 26th, We have no doubt that you adequately realize tbe value of a well conducted kindergarten and will liberally patronize it. and we wish to assure you tbat our methods are ui-'-to-daie—fresh from Eastern EXTENDED SIDEWALKS. Mayor Chappell of 'Columbus, writes to the Municipal Journal and Engineer as follows: The city of Columbus was prompted to adopt the extended sidewalk on certain streets and avenues for tnTcc reasons: First, as being the most satisfactory means of obtaining a gentle slope from the property line to the street grade, either considerably higher or lower than the abutting property; second, as furnishing a pleas* ant variation from the monotony of central parks; third, as reducing the amount of street service to be maintained aud paved. A portion of .Second avenue, which is now being improved on this plan, is one of the important residence avenues of tbe city. The abutting property on the east is several feet above, and on tbe west several feet below, the street grade. Until the extended sidewalk plan was adopted, the sidewalk on the east was held in position by an unsightly perpendicular retainiug wall three or four feet high, and tbe entire surface drainage from the street found its way to the gutter ou the west. This avenue has a total width between propeitv Hues of 132 feet, and, as now improved, shows a neatly crowned driveway of thirty-six feet iu the center, bordered ou either side by thirty-six leet of graceful slope turfed with Bermuda grass cxteuding to the part of tbe sidewalk used by pedestrians, and leaving twelve feet next to the property on either t-ide to be paved or graveled by the owner of the abutting property. Tbe advantages claimed from this method of treating the avenue may be enumerated as follows: 1. A graceful slope replaces the perpendiculcr wall. 2. A reduction of 50 per cent in the driveway surface to be sprinkled, maintained and paved. 3. Tbe removal of dust and noise ofthe driveway 32 feet from the property lines. * - 4. As compated with a center park, a saving of 50 per cent in curbing. 5. A pleasing lawn effect when viewed from the front windows or porches at the residence. Some months ago a young man came here from a neighboring state, a total stranger, and began to look about for employment. He wasn't broke, and he bore letters showing him to be qualified to fill almost any kind of a clerical position, but wanted tu do something and announced that he would wash buggies or do anything that would pay. He did all kinds of ranch and orchard work, clerked in a store, tackled anything that came along and always held up his end, and next week be will step into a position which most of our home boys would be delighted to get, even temporarily. Get a move on you boys!' Don't wait for the "good job," take what you can get, do your work welt and keep on working and the job will he chasing you some day.—Orovillc Mercury. —■» Mrs. C. F. Bartholomew and family have returned from an outing o! several weeks at Pacific Grove. THE SEALE ADDITION Choice Urge Blocks For Site, * Beautiful Oaks.
