ABOLISH THE "
OLD BACK YARD
Make All the Ground Around
Your Homo Attractive,
NO RUBBISH, NO DISEASE
Co-eperatlon Qetween Owner and
Tenants Would Do Grot Dtal To
ward Chanolng Present Condition.
It Would Alio Incrtat Values.
Why wns tbo back yard ever Invent
ed? Why need tlicro be a rear ami a
front to a bouse And why hnvo moat
botnes two rears niul no front? The
rear of a house was orltfnnlly designed
us a place where coal wns delivered,
where waste was removed and where
deliveries from tradesmen were niadc.
But tn city horaea the gnrbaRe and the
ashes tro out the front door, and dellr
eries aro tnado there. In fact. It by
necessity lias becomo the back door.
And what Is the back yard? Usually a
place for weed to grow, n place for
rubbish, to accumulate, a place to bang
out the wash, n breeding place for mos
, qultoes and tiles and an eyesore to
about half the population of tenants,
who day by day. month after month,
have to look out upon It. So state
the Title Insurance News.
If ever any one pays the penalty for
a sin It Is tho owner of real estate, res
idential property, who Is carrying the
burden of the back yard. How does the
owner of auch proerty pay the pen
alty, and can he escape It? Hear rooms
bring less Income than street rooms by
cause ox exisung conuiuons. ict. wuj
Dot make rear rooms front rooms and
correspondingly Increase the Income
from residential property?
Take, for example, a block of bouses
running from one avenue to another.
Backing up to each other there are
about thirty-four houses, twenty feet In
width. There Is a stretch of open land
between the two rows of bouses about
700 feet long and approximately 100
It us Imagine. If we can. that the
owners of these seventy pieces of
I saSl -- 'J
A SeiOLlTX hack TAua
property got their heads together and
decided that they would place this
vacant space In tho bands of two or
three or live of their number as trus
tees for a period of Ore years, each
contributing alike to the cost, and that
fences bo torn down, rubbish cleared
up and the plot turned Into a minia
ture park and playground In abort,
that the rear of these bonsea become
the front What would happen? Count
ing the number of room facing the
back yard as about the same as those
facing the street and that there la a
difference in the rental Income of
about 20 per ceut. It would be safe to
assume that by making such a change
the Income of the renr rooms facing
our Imagined miniature park would,
bring In an additional Income of 2U
per cent In excess of their usual rental
ralae. which on the entire property
would show an increase of possibly
from 5 to 10 per ceut
Not taking into consideration J be
. increased Income, wonld not such propJ
rties always find occupants In prefer
ence to others that could not offerls
attractive feature? Would we net be
providing an Ideal playground rem
children, taking tbem from the streets
with Its dancers? Would not such re-
treats afford comfort, afternooua.nndjftv
evenings, to the occupants of the room
men and women who must pass the
greater part of tbelr summers In the
The average summer population In
the seventy houses does not fall far
short of 1.000 persons. By renting a
portion of the space for the privilege
of serving Ice cream und soda fountain
drinks there would be siilllcleut In
come from the privilege to more than
pay for the upkeep of the plot
Any step thnt will help make city
life more attractive will help to main
tain values. Does not this suggestion
offer a remedy for one of the causes
of decrentdng income from rooming
properties In certalu cities?

Here is uu Idea which could be adapt
ed to the bcautlfylug of towns with
