An Ideal Park and Picnic Place,
-------------------------------

The park and picnic grounds immediately adjacent to Nicholstone
station, along the south side,of which flows the placid Dickinson River,
are the ideal pleasure grounds of the cities of Galveston and Houston.
All the latest improvements in the way of water, pavilions, toilet-rooms,
swings, graveled walks, etc., have been provided. The railway lines have
made low rates and the grand old oaks of Nicholstone remain the favor-
ite resort of the tired workers of brain and muscle of the twin cities of
the Southwest. Thirty thousand persons have visited these picnic grounds
in one day.
