Parking At The Grand Avenue Grounds

A number of rascals at the Grand Avenue Park stop all gentlemen who drive out and inform them that Mr. Solari, the proprietor, charges one dollar for carriage room, while they will take charge of the team for twenty-five cents. The reverse of this is the case-Mr. Solari looking after all teams for a quarter, while outsiders charge from fifty cents to a dollar. As Mr. Solari purchased the addition to the park expressly to accommodate Brown Stocking patrons, he deserves, and no doubt will get, their custom.
