"An eastern city carried oui flu
idea last year that might well be
Imitated by uuy progressive or
ganization of women. After New
Year's wagons went from house
to house to collect all the Christ
mas trees. These were taken to
the public squares. Sharpened
ou the ends, they were thrust
Into the ground In artistic groups
and clumiw of varying heights.
Ill some cases they act as wind
shields for the growing shrubs
and evergreens. In every ease,
though but temporary tenants,
they make attractive, restful
beauty spots for the eye. Com

After a short \ve«‘ k ot tinseled

is made that it will prove an ex
ceptionally interesting and instruc
tive one, both to the Pacific Coast
resident and to the visitor who
comes out here from other climes.
Between the entrances and the
exhibit sections there will be spac
ious and highly decorated lobbies.
The Company has stipulated
with the exposition people to re
serve between thirteen and four
teen thousand feet of space in one
wing of the structure for such
space as may be desired by other
transportation companies, rail or
or steamer, and offices of this
kind will be confined to this build
ing. The convenience to exposi
tion visitors of concentrating the
transportation offices in this man
ner is obvious.
In addition the building, which
was designed by the Southern
Maintenance of W a y Department,
will have rest rooms for men and
women, a smoking room for) men,
and an information bureau for the
convenience of all visitors, and a
ticket office. The exterior wiH
be prettily set off by a parking
arrangement for the exploitation
of California’s trees and flowers.
The entire exhibit is intended to
be a scheme worthy of the expo-
sition and the Southern Pacific
