The receipts from admissions paid at the gate, have
been greater than during any year in the history of the
Gardens.

On account of the high price of labor and materials
very little new building was undertaken during the
year, nevertheless an additional cage was erected in
the monkey house, and in the reptile house a new case
was made for the Galapagos tortoise and other large
tortoises that had formerly been kept in the greenhouse
during the winter, also an outdoor enclosiu^e for ostriches
was erected at the south end of the new bird house.
These and the Eld's deer which are now in one of the
new deer enclosures make two additional species that
have been kept out of doors throughout the year. The
new deer park was completed in April and has proven
to be most satisfactory. Last spring one hundred and
twenty-five pine trees were planted on the Thirty-
Fourth Street side of the Garden.

Early in the summer, facilities for baking bread were
installed in the cook house and now about two himdred
pounds of bread are being baked daily without using
white flour.

As the embargo on the importation of animals con-
tinued throughout the year, it was impossible to obtain
many new specimens of the larger mammals. This
diflSculty, however, was fully compensated for by the
unusually low death rate and the large number of
animals bom during the year.
