Jersey-nan's Experience Should Be a
Lasaon For All Others.
The Tillage cytilc of Itutherford, N.

was Just after Mr. Wllllumson had
bought an unsightly kit in that village
and moved there. And at first it
seemed as if the cynic was right The
back yard was composed largely of
red Jersey sand and rocks. The Idea
of converting it into the prettiest gar
den In the town seemed absurd.
But Mr. -Williamson wanted a gar
den, lie wanted flowers and lots of
them. He wanted to dig in the ourth
and wanted roses for his friends. Ho
set out to show the populace of Ituther
ford that llowera could be mndo to
grow in Jersey sand. Now be has
one of the most beautiful gardens In
that state, and his neighbor. Inspired
by bis success or envious of his
achievement, have likewise Improved
their yards. Spots which two years
ago were dumping grounds for tin cans
are now magnificent gnrdens. The ef
fect of the single garden has been mar
velous. The first thing Mr. Williamson did
was to get the sand and rocks out of
his yard. Every afternoon be hauled
a wheelbarrow full of rocks to trie
woods, a hnlf mile away. On his re

wood soil. In one month be had two

It would take an entire year to get a

Therefore he sowed a variety of an

frame. Then he bought a number of
rosebushes and tried his hand at plant
ing clippings in the hotbed. The re
sults were strong, healthy plants for
the next year, a majority of which
were kept In the cold frames.
In two years the spot of Jersey sand
and rock has been converted Into a
beautiful garden. It Is situated on a
prominent street corner, and all pass
ersby take notice. Ills nclgbliors ask
ed questions and begged for clippings
and advice, which were freely given.
Everybody wants a garden like Wil
liamson's. Today tho entire neighborhood shows
the effect of what can be done If one

greatest Joy was when be presented
