der consideration for Dcnd that

locality; another set of streets to be
named oiler well-known trees; 111
another part of the town the streets
would be called after the names 'of
flowers. In all these arrangements
the names would be run in alpha
betical order Awbrey, Drock, Cot
tor; Ash, Dcech, Cottonwood; As
ter, Duttcrcup, Crocus. Then an
other set of streets would bear
names of the ordinals. By this ar
rangement the vurious parts of the
town would be easily fixed in mind
and the stranger would soon learn
where the various classes of streets
are. Something of this sort is like
ly to Jte decided upon for naming
the Bend streets. "
