J read with keen interest the article in Friday's Herald concerning Commissioner Mcech's plans for improving Henderson Park. The pen picture as it stands out- lined conveys lo mo tho impression ,that onr'JIr. Meech Is most certain- ly possessed of a "poetic" turn ol mfnd. What a picture our park would pre- sent. Can you not sco the beautiful jleinltiig of colors. !hc light -green leaves with the dark, and the borders, nml driveways bedecked will! the vari- Jiis tints, of beautiful flowers, the bees, a humming and the sweet music o.' birds In the'.uir.whilst nestling he- low, the rippling waters of Henderson Lake would adil lustre to iis land- scape. When 1 in fancy see this: transformation scenes of my childhood aviso my gazo; scenes of llio parlts'in ilear home- land, which make .rAe- fanny that Mr. Mecch must have travelled over tho( Midland Counties, and viewed such] parks as Spluay Hill, or Abbey I'ark, Leicester, or, possibly, the "Arbone- turn" in the-ancient city of Notting- ham. My sentiments are exactly in a line with (hose of Mr. Mccch, nnd I fee! that since the work of park building hns begun In Lcllibridge every effort should be made to carry on the good work. Taking into 'consideration all the Uicro is no telling to what ambillona might aspire; fancy in Iho not too far dls- tlie bcaiily spot of Alberta, the home of 'real spon, and real but! what's the use! I am not or pessimistic tempera- ments Mr. and never hope lo but when bring my mind, back lo face the s'.ern realities of life. I find; myself rautterinj; Moll" where.are we going to get the money? In Ihe face of thai, I presume we must write over the heat! 'of our beau- IIMil.aspirations; the loiters: "H.l.l1."
