Concord Items

Concord, N. H., May 9, 1899.—At the meeting of the city government this afternoon an agreement proposed by the Rev. Mary Baker Eddy, looking to the expenditure of five thousand dollars by the city, the sum to be given by Mrs. Eddy, for a boulevard leading from her home toward the city, was accepted.—Boston Herald.

The generous offer of the Rev. Mary Baker Eddy to furnish five thousand dollars to the city for macadamizing and otherwise improving Pleasant Street in the vicinity of her home was promptly accepted, as it deserved to be. This street, as The Monitor developed by a recent inquiry, the result of which we published, is the one most frequently passed over by visitors to the city and, accordingly, should be made the most attractive. Mrs. Eddy's gift will do a great deal to make it so; and in future it is to be hoped that a portion of the permanent work which the highway commissioner does each year may be so placed as to continue that which is now made possible by Mrs. Eddy's generosity, until the whole street shall be transformed into a magnificent avenue.—Concord Evening Monitor.
