PROVIDING MANY MORE LOTS IN OLD ROSE HILL CEMETERY

Barns and Stable Near Entrance Have Been Done Away With

Some important changes are being made at Rose Hill cemetery. For the
purpose of gaining ground for a greater number of lots, the barns and
stable near the entrance have been torn down, and the speaker's stand used
on Memorial days will be taken away and this portion of the grounds in
front of the cemetery will be utilized.

It is thought by this change that some seventy-five or eighty additional
lots will be added to the cemetery. There has been a demand for more lots
for a long time, and at one time the proposition was to terrace the
hillside in the locality of the old crystal spring for the purpose, but
for some reason this was never done.
