Yesterday a thousand or more residents of the city visited the proposed park. Sixty-nine cars were counted in the grove at one time in the afternoon, and tlicre was a steady stream of jirs coming and gojng throughout the day. A band. directed by Everett McDowell, played in the afternoon. The size and beauty of the trees in tiic- grove and the elevation and rolling character of the ground were a revelation to many who .hod never visited the ground br-fore. The trees, chiefly oak but including flue specimens of most. of the varieties native to this region, are excellent examples of the timber that once covered Mississippi county. Tlte grove is about the only remaining bit of the original forest now remaining in the vicinity of Blytheville. Those who visited the grove yes| lerday were enthusiastic over the prospect of its being preserved as a public park and gave assurances or their support of the campaign for its purchase to be launched tonight.
