The materials applicable b railroad

of the iliiMy ami smoky conditions
which tbc must endure. The short

pensive apology fur the vastly supe
rior and less expensive perennial plant

lieauty uf Hie scene Is with us through
out the year. Heavy masses of a sin
gle species nf plants are more effective
than the mixing uf Individuals of sev
eral species. Those single specie
masses are to be so placed that they
easily blend and together make a har
monious whole. i 'harming seasonal
effects may likewise be produced.
Aside from liaxlug station grounds
and the right of way xvell arranged

"Why should the ornamental tree so

not the landscape deserve attention?
What are the natural features which
make a township handsome? A river,
with Its waterfalls and meadows, a

a forest and ancient trees standing
Kingly. Such things are beautiful.
They have a high use which dollars

Stout 1 to take nil the preliminary
i-teps, mid the vote 4 of the citizens will
biinl the resilient s to build their houses
according to the common plan, ilevlseil
so that the business district will blend
harmoniously Intp the residence por
tions of the city, and the front yards
of the residences will be so decorated
with flower iM-ds and other adornments
that Meiiomome will be one great gar
den, with the houses so hidden by
vines and creepers as to remind one of
an ancient KngHsh estate.
The plans are not complete, but the
town council and business men's and
citizens' assiniatioiis have pledged ac
quiescence in the scheme.
Menomotile first won renown through
its wonderful system of public schools,
all given to the town, with the excep
tion of the district schools, by Senator
Stout. The Stout School of Physical
Culture, the Stout Manual Training
school, the Stout gymnasium and the
Stout Natatorium are some of the
school and public buildings provided
by this millionaire lumberman. Now,
as Menomonie's sawdust plies are be
ing carried away, their place Is to be
tilled by a town modeled on the latest
artistic device. Of all the Stout Insti
tutions the School of. Manual Training
Is the most elaborate and that In which
Stout takes the most pride. It has
achieved such fame that teachers of
mauual training from all over the coun
try come in droves to be allowed to
learn the Stout methods.
Senator Stout says that Menomonle
was the town whose lumber Industry
made his fortune, and It Is only fair to
the town to return to It same of the ad
vantages thus gleaned. Mr. Stout was
the pioneer in introducing manual
training into the public schools of the
state. Before Milwaukee had such a
department that of Menoiuouie was
The Stout institutions are part of the
public school system and are headed
by the best educators In the state. For
Instance, L. 1. Harvey, former state
superintendent of public Instruction,
upon completing his term was at once
engaged as city superintendent In Me
nomonle at a larger salary than that
paid In the state office. He refused an
offer to take charge of the public
schools of Cleveland to remain at Me
nomonle. Other Instructors are of the
same high grade and draw better sal
aries than can be secured elsewhere.
Seuator Stout believes as well In mu
nicipal Improvements, and one of his
activities has been the building of
model roads around Menomonle. He
secured a governmental crew to show
the farmers of his county how to build
roads and then kept up the agitation
until once rutted country highways be
came as boulevauds to the ordinary
roads In older parts of the state.
This agitation of his for clean and
modern cities has taken root in the
state, and this last spring has been
marked by a wave of agitation in a
dozen cities of the state. At Delaran
the work done was chiefly on the part
of school children to show farmers the
need of having better roads. Even In
Milwaukee the idea has taken root, and
4D.000 school children have handed to
gether to keep the back yards free of
small articles offensive to the eye.
Iu Sheboygan the school children
formed a Green Button brigade, and
on one day In the early spring the city
was literally swept cleen. The children
began work, each In his own back yard,
and when they had finished with the
yards thousands of brooms were wield
ed In the streets to gather the dirt lnlo
plies, where the wagons loaned by the
city carried the dirt away.
Wausau also furnished teams and.
city laborers free to aid the school chil
dren In the work of cleaning up.
Flowera Near the Kitchen Door.
A housekeeper who spends much
time in the kitchen has a stand erected
In the yard against the fence and one
In front of the kitchen door, says the
Housekeeper. The two shelves, placed
one above the other, are filled with
boxes and flower pots, iu which are
growing that never tiring bloomer, the
single petunia. Tots are placed upon
the ground beneath the stand, and all
summer long the once bare fence U
transformed into a bank of luxuriant
green and red. White petunias may be
mixed with tlio red to give variety.
The seeds need not be gathered, as
they fall Into the ground, there to He
all winter und cpriug up the following:
season. Coming up thickly, as they do,
of course, the young plants will re
quire separation. For very llttlo trou
ble and uninterrupted beauty petunia
have scarcely a rival.
