City planning would first In
vestigate all the physical ills of

them; It would determine all
those matters which need Im

In consideration of all points of
view the relative urgency of the
various needs; it would plan. In
view of this, a consistent pro
gram of procedure; it would
work out solutions for all of
these problems, keeping a due
relation and proportion among
them; it would meet the peculiar
needs of the community and
preservo tho city's Individuality;
it would concentrate, on the vari
ous problems and get tangible
results. City planning would so
model the setting of tho life of
the community with regard to
health, safety, convenience and

place In which to live. Than
this there is nothing in which a

It is no seorel to business men that

Curran Had Reply
it was difficult to nubdue the high
spirits of John Fhillpot Curran, the
Irish lawyer and wit. Indeed, many
of hie most brilliant witticisms were
uttered in the staid and somewhat
musty atmosphere of the courtroom.
On one occasion when Curran was
making an elaborate argument in
chancery Lord Clare brought a large
Newfoundland dog upon the bench with
him, ana 'during the progress of the
argument he paid much more attention
to the dog than to the barrister. Grad
ually the chancellor lost all regard tor
even ordinary courtesy. In the must
impurtsnt part of the rase he turned
himself quite aside and began to fon
dle the animal. Curran stopped at

"I beg thousand pardon, my
lord." replied the wit. "I took It for
