CITY PLANNING DIFFICULT.
Requires Co-operative Effort to 8eovM
I-ark of adequate planning for indus
trial communities Is vigorously Uis
cusned In the Survey by Ueorge B.
Ford, city planning expert for Newark
and lecturer on that subject at Colum
bia university. He aays:
"Large cities are spending millions
todny to widen streets, cut through
new streets, provide parka and play
grounds in congested areas, almost all
of which might have been saved If
the city had been originally planned
with foresight Hundreds of millions
are spent on hoxpltals, asylums, sanl
tariums, Jul Is, health, police and fire de
partments, a large portion of which
conld have been saved If the cities had
not been so wastrfully and unscien
"For example. If the lot and block
units and dimensions in sections sur
rounding the factories which moved to
Norwood and Oakley, on the outskirts
of Cincinnati, had been laid out along
lines which experience hss shown to
be most economical and desirable for
workingnien's dwellings and If provl
(ton had been mads for recreation for
grownup as well as for children, as
suggested by the English garden
suburbs, the neighborhood of the fac
tories would now be almost exclusive
ly occupied by the employees In those
factories Instead of largely by clerks
and business men, who commute dally
to Cincinnati. And furthermore, the
alum problem of Cincinnati Itself
would be vastly less urgent.
"If the lots were cut for the oceu
pant Instead of the occupant being
trimmed to the lot. If streets and road
ways were designed In location, dlrec
tlon, character and width for use and
not according to obsolete precedent; If
transit lines were designed with the
same efficiency that the manufacturer
exhibits in designing his own plant; if
people could only realize that money
spent In scientifically designed recre
ational facilities is paid back In many
ways to the community, then the work
ingmeu's residential area Instead of
being an eyesore and a disgrace to the
community would le what the Eng
lish garden Huburhs now are the most
charming and efficient housing areas
to be found anywhere In the world.
"The problem Is simple. It requires.
first, merely :t:i approelnflnn of the
fact that city planning p.'iys. and. sec
end. it require n en-operative effort on

TREES ADD CHARM TO HOMES
Fin Mansions Found In City,
Pretty Homes In Country.
A very observant traveler of unques
tioned taste observes: "I wixh I conld
more forcibly impress upon the minds
of the farmer the value of attractive
surroundings. Every farm home should
be attractive. It is not necessary to
have a fine house or fancy cottage or
expensive lawn fence to make the farm
home pretty. To be sure, a neat fence,
a few ornaments on the house and the
free use of paint help mightily, but the
chief attractions can be made of trees
and shrubs. A shady lawn and a
shady driveway are always attractive.
Groups of trees, shrubs or flowers nev
er fall to charm. The lawn may not be
kept perfectly smooth, all the trees
may not be cleanly pruned, yet the
home place ornamented with them does
not fail to convey the Impression that
peace and contentment dwell there.
As a lady from the city said. 'A pretty
farmhouse suggests a happy bird's
nest' We do not notice the dwelling
so much as we do the surroundings.
If the surroundings are pretty we
know the interior of the house is all
right and that it is the abode of love
and contentment and all that makes
life worth living. We look to the city
for fine mansions, but to the coud'tt
for pretty homes."
Peculiar Need of Plants.
I'lant purchasers in doubt regarding
the best treatment for certain plant
should ask of the pHrty from whom
they buy, for he is Indeed a poor nurs
eryman who does not know more oi
the requirements of his wares than
the average gurden owner. California
draws her garden vegetation from
many lands of greatly varying cli
mates, and it must not be supposed
that all will thrive in the same garden
and under like treatment. Many have
peculiar needs regarding soils, beat,
sunshine, amount of water and otbei
conditions, and no one better knows
these special requirements than tb(
dealer who has produced salable plant
of these sorts.
To Preserve Rosebuds.
Here is a method of preserving roses
which In years gone by was commonly
adopted: Well developed buds ore
gathered, and the cut end of the stalk
is dipped in liquid wax until It Is com
pletely Healed. Each bud Is then
wrapped In tissue paper and packed
away in a well fitting box. In this
state the buds may be left for months,
and when it Is desired to expand them
cut away the waxed end and place the
stem In water which bos been slightly
SCHOOL GARDENS VALUABLE.
Child Should Be Eduoated Out of Doors
as Well a In.
The need of gardens for chlldrcu, es
pecially those residing In cities. Is be
ing more generally realized every
month, and many progressive cities
and towns are providing such spots fot
their youth. In the annual reports ol
the School Garden Association of New
York the president says:
"After twenty-Ore years' experience
as a teacher I atu convinced thnt the
Incarceration of little children within
four walls of a classroom for too Ions
Ierlod8 is a grest error. The child
must come Into contact with nature or
he Is not educated. We have no choice
lu the matter because we were made
to so develop. Therefore school gar
dening Is worth while because it em
bodies an Integral and fundamental ele
uient In education.
"The small garden plot Is very Im
portant because It presents to every
child In the school an Ideal of outdoor
work. Even If he cannot touch it with
his own hands he can see It and watch
the dally growth.
"If school gardening Is worth while
it should be part of our course of
study. It should be prescribed as In
Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington, St
Faul and many other cities. It Is best
to place It In the fourth or fifth year,
as these children seem to be most at
tracted by school garden work, and It
taught in these years lu after years s
great many of them will take It up st

tify front luwns, to plant trees, to cul

other most commendable civic acts.
"The schools, too. have quite general
ly beautified their surroundings wher
ever possible. Tills work has progress
ed with little notion of its educational
value. Its training iower has beeu
thought of as Incidental to the great
work of making better living (condi
"No matter how much of value may
be ascribed to the other isiluts of
view, the reul value of school garden
ing arises from the fact thnt It Is an
integral part of the education of cbll-
reii The child must come into con-
fact with the soil and its manifesta
tions or he is not fully educated.
'The school that does not provide
for a children's garden is educating
only In part. The child must also

Perennials Are Pretty.
At odd times plant hardy flowering
perennials along the fence near the
public roud. They can often be dug
In the woods or back lots and will cost
only a few minutes time to transplant
But they'll gladden the hearts of all
who see them.
MUST CARE FOR FLOWERS.
Plants Must Be Wsll Fed, Well Culti
vated and Not Crowded.
in the Woman's Home Companion
Frank A. Waugh, a well known expert,
writes an article, entitled "First Aid In
the Garden," an extract from which
'Prevention Is better than cure in
the garden as lu the home.
"First and foremost, beyond all elst
important, is the ability to reslvt din-
eate. This comes Willi good heaitn ana
exuberant growth. Plants which are
well fed, well cultivated, not over
crowded nnd have a proper allowance
of water, ami which are therefore mak
ing sound anil vigorous growth, rarely
acquire uny serious plant diseases.
Even Insects, strange though it may
seem, seldom attack it perfectly healthy
plant or, at any rate, they nearly al
ways appear first and most viciously
on those plants or crops already weak
ened by disease or neglect. Thus good
care and proper general management
are the first and most important meth
ods of combating plant diseases."
Testimony of s Back Yard.
I never saw my neighbor or his wife,
but DOthlng could ever convince me
they are not both excellent people, be
cause my window overlooks their back
yard, and their buck yard has a clean
carpet of turf and trees and several
lilac bushes beuutifully In bloom, and
all without a trace of cureless dis
figurement. And I heur the voices of
cniidreu and the sound of children's
games there on nil evening. I believe
