ORNAMENTS STATION GROUNDS.
Officers of sovcrnl of the big rnilrond
systems are considering plans to induce
agents and others concerned to make
stronger efforts to beautify station
grounds and buildings. During the
past year or two particular attention
has been given to making the stations
more attractive. The Burlington has
accomplished a great deal in this direc
tion. Last year it issued orders to all
employees that the grounds and build
ings adjacent to the company's right-of-
way must present a neat and attractive
appearance. The company's gardener
gave his especial attention to beautifying -
ing the suburban stations for forty
miles out of Chicago. Before last sum
mer closed , switch shanties , tool houses ,
yard offices and round houses had been
prettily covered with running vines and
the grounds about each building con
verted into flue lawns over which shrub
bery had been planted. During the
coming spring and summer this work
will be greatly extended , and ill time
the Burlington expects to have the
most ornamental station grounds in the
