There seems to be no reason why
states, counties or cities should sup
port In Idleness those who hare broken
the luw, and esieclally those who are
. serving but a short term In some minor
Institution, says the Municipal Journal
and Engineer. ' Organized labor has
uiude strenuous efforts to prevent the
employment of convicts lu the manu
facture of goods that will compete
with free labor, but there Is a way by
which convicts may be employed to
advantage and at the some time not
compete with free laborers. The man
who la'servlng a term of a month or a
year Is a different proposition from
one who Is sent to the state peniten
tiary for a long term.
Dallas county, Tex., has been using
these short term men on Its roads, and
they are returning to the county more
than It costs to support them.- An act
of the legislature In 1SU5 authorized
the biiildlug of roads by the labor of
county convicts. The county of Dal
las is divided Into four districts, each
one In charge of a special road com
missioner. The act provides that
roads are to be constructed as nearly
as ikihnIIiIv east, west, north and
south from the city. When these
roads Iniro been constructed, the act
provides further that four other roads
are to be built to the border of the
enmity as nearly midway between the
llrst ones as Is practicable. Then there
are to be otlicni between the roads al
irmly built, and In the end Dallas Is
to have n scries of roads that will con
verge toward (lie city.
All convicts who are physically uble
to perform labor must work on tha
county roads. The work Is to bo under
tlie supervision of a competent super
intendent, and the work done must be
of tlio best quality. Each of the con-
TKXAS CONVICTS T WORE.
vlct camps on tho public roads Is In
charge of a suier!nlemU-ut and four
guards, and tho average, number of
men lu each camp Is fifteen. These
men are supplied with clothing and
fissl and are credited with no cents
for each day they are held In Imprison
incut, this amount going toward tho
canceling or their Ones and the cost
of the case.
In addition they are allowed 10 per
cent for good behavior whllo on the
work. Thla work has done a great deal
toward reducing the number of "ho
boes" that heretofore were wont to fre
quent the district. "Hoboea" are not
given to work and during the winter
months are glad to be acnt up for short
terms In somo Jail, where they can re
ceive shelter and, to them, a good liv
ing until summer comes again. Work
ing on the roads Is not to their liking,
so they now give Dallas and Its vicin
ity a wide berth.

In considering 4Ue grounds of a coun

Ilrooklyn Eagle. The fence, far from
being a detraction, aa It la so frequent

made one of Its chief attractions. The
memory of a fence bordering th
grounds of a plain little cottuge of sub
urban Boston still haunts the writer,
though seen many years ago. It was
a low wall of graystone, the top of
which was completely covered with
nasturtiums. All summer long this
wall was a mass of brilliant bloom awl
a Joy to every passerby. No matter
bow uncompromisingly ugly the fence
is. It may with the exercise of artistic
taste bo transformed Into a thing of

what she did to bring about the de
sired end: At the base of the fence
along lis entire length the ground was
spaded and act with a variety of
plants, large and small, the selection
being made with a view of keeping
something blooming the season through.
About six Inches from the top tho In

shelves, and on these were placed at

TO IMPROVE STREETS,
A Society Orajanlaed to Plant Traea
la th lea era.
The Chicago Tree I'lantlng society
was organized recently to plant trees
In the streets of Chicago. With the
election of olllcers It was announced
that one of the first works the society
would undertake would be a light on
the gas and smoke nuisance, to be
urged along new Hues.
Then will come the planting of trees
lu the slum districts, the distribution
of literature that will educate the peo
ple In tree planting and the starting of
a movement to have Hie care and some
times the planting of trees In streets
placed In the hands of the park boards.
"Chicago has practically 1.HK) miles
of treeless streets," said tjcorge K.
Hooker, the secretary of the organiza
tion, "and the planting of trees In them
Is an Immense tnsk. (las aud smoke
arc the greatest enemies of tree growth
we liuve. One of our first duties will
be to get after the smoke nuisance
from a new angle."
Many thousand pamphlets telling the
kinds of trees that will grow here and
how to care for them, as well as urging
their planting, are to be circulated In
an effort to get people to plaut trees
In front of their homes. Olllcers of
Improvement associations are to be
asked to co operate with the society In
the tree planting plans, and residents
of the same block will be urged to
unite lu tbelr tree planting efforts so
as to secure uniformity. Citizens are
also to be Instruc ted In the art of prun
lug trees properly. Chicago Chronicle.
BUILD UP THE TOWN.

An Improvement association is an
organization that should have the con
fidence and support of every citizen of
the town which It la working to Im
prove. It is easy to make laws for tho beau

ment of tho little details that go to
make the town more beautiful. It Is
these organizations (but bring these
little details to the notice of the olll
clals. The members of an Improvement as
aoclatlon are men and women high up
In the social and business affairs of the
town, and yet they do not besltate to
devote their lime and energy to the
betterment of conditions of tbelr fel
low men, wholly without thought of
mercenary ml vantage.
Klstely and attractive shade trees,
well kept lawns, styles of architecture
embodying artistic designs and well
kept streets are those little details that
make a good town to live In, and It Is
for these that the Improvement associ
ation Is laboring
Every man and woman aiding the
Improvement association in Its cru
sade is doing a work that will have a
far more than pecuniary reward.
