Bathers, too, of both sexes, who have their suits, find good bathing there. The caretaker also gives lessons in swimming.
Want bathing house.
A large number of the young ladies of the city are patronizing the swimming grounds at Riverside Park this season, and are anxious that there should be more accommodation in the line of dressing rooms. At present there are only two very small and very cramped rooms, quite insufficient to take care of the large number of bathers. The local mermaids have made several appeals to the street railway for dressing rooms, but so far without response. One of the bathers stated to the Mercury today that between one hundred and one hundred and fifty were on hand last night, and great inconvenience was caused because there was not sufficient bathing house accommodation.
