How Brookline School Children Keep a
Neighborhood Free From Litter.
The Pierce school In Brookline, Mam.,
bas solved the problem of littered
streets in so fur as the children of
that school are concerned.
At first an attempt was made at ab
stract teaching, says the Boston Tran
script, but It was without effect Then
something practical was devised. Each
room held an election and selected four
representatives 'for the Good Citizens'
club, making about fifty In all.
These met and selected officers, di
vided up the streets of the neighbor
hood and assigned a portion to each
grade, making It absolutely responsible
for conditions In Its territory. Waste

Intendent of streets and got tbem.
To keep up Interest the teachers are
conducted by the various squads over
what they call their "beats." Healthy
emulation has produced moat desir
Ceanlltiess and freedom from possi
ble contagion made It necessary that
the children should not handle dirty
papers, skins of fruit and other refuse
with their fingers, so the manual train
ing teacher got some volunteers from
the club and collecting sticks were pre
pared fur tho workers.
The results of the experiment are
manifest, and many favorable com
ments have come In from citizens and
from the officials of the street depart
ment. School papers, which may east
ly lie detected, are rarely found on the
streets. It Is observed, however, that
refuse from other sources continues
about the same, and It Is thought It
will probably remain so until adults
learn from the children or till the
younger generation takes the place of
the present careless one,
The principal of the school says that
one thing Is certain the members of
the Good Citizens' club of that Pierce
school who have bent their backs 2,000
times In the course of a single week
to pick up papers can never In the
whole course of their lives look upon
scattered papers In the streets with in
difference. YOUNG TREES IN TOWNS.
Course of Real Estate Operators That
Is Worthy of Emulation.
1 It Is noted in Brooklyn that a few
suburban real estate operators are set
ting trees on property which U on
the market for building purposes or on
which the builders themselves Intend
to cruet dwellings. This is so obvious
ly a wise policy that It is a wonder
only "a few" are following it, says
the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle.
Having purchased a tract of land and
divided It Into streets and building
lota, the wise owner will at once plant
trees In suitable places and start tbem
growing before a cellar Is dug. The
property Is thus niado more attractive
nnd salable, for nothing ran be much
more dreary than a residence district
As a result of rapid growth in popu
lation and building, the tendency is to
deprive city streets of shade which
tliey have long enjoyed. The sacrifice
of a noble oak or maple or elm is al
ways a cause of mourning, but the
.laughter goes on In the nome of "1m
I'nivement." The only compensation
Is to plant and foster trees on new
streets and lots. Those who terfonu
this tank diligently will earn the
thanks of future generations.
