Much work Is being done in cities
and towns which does not receive a
proper amount of credit This Is be
cause of the unobtrusive way In
which It is done In many Instances.
Tbe true vslue of such work would
beat te recognized If it were suddenly
to come to s stop, says Margaret Me
net In Municipal News.
Work of this nature is being done
by the Town Improvement association
of Montclatr, N. J., a pluco to make
one draw a deep breath of satisfaction J
la contemplating It as a residence.
This association, organized In 1894, is
wonting siong uie hubs mm .
beginning except In what Is being done
for children, the latter being regarded
as an Important advance step. Other
work has to do with matters which
make life comfortable In a small town.
And this Is the work the benefit of
which would best be seen were It sud-
denly to stop. It Is like that prosaic
matter of geiflng three meals a day
for the members of one's household.
No ono thinks of talking much Bl)0,,t
It, yet havoc would ensue if It were
overlooked twenty-four hours.
The ordinance providing for prompt
removsl of snow rrom sidewaiKs was
drafted and pushed through by the ef
forts of tbe Montclalr Town Improve
ment association, a work the good of
which will not be denied by city folk
who go anywhere In the country to
spend Sunday and who have to innke
an early train back Mouday morning
regardless of a bllr.iunl overnight
Street signs guiding the stranger to
hia destination were secured by this
same agency after efforts extending
over four years. Through the work of
tbe assorlatiou, assisted by Robert M.
Doyd, assemblyman, tbe amended law
providing for the collection of garbage
and ashes in towns under certain con
ditions was approved by the legisla
ture. This Is a good measure, but Is
one that needs still further attention,
some difficulty having arisen tu the
disposal of garbage. As tbe town is
allowed to contract for only one year
at a time, It Is a difficult matter to find
any one willing to equip himself with
horses and wsgous without a guaran
tee for the work for a longer period
thun twelve mouths.
From the beginning the association
has worked for Improvements in rail
road service. Trains have been added
from time to time and the schedule
altered to suit the convenience of the
public. The surroundings of the sta
tion, too, hsve been Improved. Where
once were heus of ashes and old
lumber one now sees flower beds and
grass. Instead of a plaza, dusty In
summer and muddy In winter, there
ore now good pavements.
Another line of work pursued by the
association Is the movement by the
health inspector to place In tenement
houses distinct rules, printed In Italian
and Kngllsh, to assist tenants In living
In a sanitary uianer. A sewing achoo!
Is held every Saturday In the old II
hrary building from 0:30 to 11:30. This
ork was undertaken three years ago
and has become ijulte systematized to
day. From sixty to sixty-five children
attend these classes. They commence
wl,h ,,,e simplest patch, and last year
the older girls made shirt waist suits
for themselves. Last summer the
school board assisted this work In a
fluauolal way.
Cooking classes have
been Introduced and met with success.
In order to make this work thorough
ly practical only the plainest kind of
cooking la taught.
Following up this work of teaching
the children to carry usefulness Into
their own homes, the sasoclatlou later
gave seed to tbe pupils of the Chest
uut street school snd offered a prize
for the best homo garden. In many
caaet tbe children not only supplied
their own families with vegetables, but
