Landscape gardening in America, cannot afford to lose many of its devotees. They are all too few. Those we have are overburdened, and when we look around for some one to aid in their excellent labors, all of us who are liable to be consulted know how hard it is to find one who can do the work. In this spirit we sympathize with the city of Baltimore in the loss it has sustained by the death of the excellent man, whose name heads this paragraph. His death occurred on the 26th of August, in his 62d year. He was a native of Germany, but had been for many years at the head of the landscape engineering of the city parks.
