and is down and out. Some
thing, over a year ago she paved
a few blocks, in spite of the
kickers. It proved such a suc
ppss. nun rents and nronerty
valuations increased so much
along the paved street, that de
mands were made for paving in
various portions of the city un
til now the paved district covers
miles instead of blocks. If this
spirit continues all the streets of
the city will be paved in a iew
years, and the citizen who pre
fers to live on a muddy, dusty
street will have to move not only
out ol the city but out 01 tne
county. A good roads move
ment is on in Liane county. ne
paving of the streets has been a
revelation to the citizens of , the
county and the farmers are
wanting permanent crushed
rock roads, and they are going
to get tnein, too.
But with her growth and
money making Eugene has not
forgotten, to provide for the
pleasure and recreation, of her
citizens. Through the purchase
of the waterworks tne. ciw in
quired Skinner's Butte, which
is to be converted into a paris,
and Banker Hendricks recently
made the city a present 01 tv
acres lying at the eastern edge
of the town, to be used for park
purposes. The land is covered
with oak and fir timber and
vpAphes an altitude of several
hundred feet. From its' summit
is afforded a magnificent view ol
t.hi- snrrouiidiujT countrv. At
the foot of this eminence flows
the beautiful Willamette, wnile
further to the north the AlcKeu-
zie threads its way eastward w a
iiinr.tion with the luiuie; a ew
miles from town. The erowing
city of Springfield is iu ptaiu
view. Large fields of grain lie j
to the northward of Eugene, ex
ton no- to the s-reen hills of the
coast range. The scene from
this future park is indeed a
beautiful one and amply repays
one for the steep limb to its
summit. No such expanse of
fertile land, with its magnificent
m;ienmtYiAr color scneme, cau
be found anywhere outside the
Willamette valley. The scene
from Jefferson Rock, at Harper's
Ferry, which is famous through
out the .East, cannoi ue cum
pared with the beauty and mag
nificence of the view obtained
from Hendricks rars.
It's a pity that one or more of
our well-to-do citizens do not
