TAKES DELIGHT IN GARDENS
Mr*. Frances Hodgaon Burnett, One
of Thoae Who Seemingly Charm
the Flower* to Grow.
There are few authors who follow
their pet hobby so assiduously aa does
Prances Hodgson Burnett; and her
hobby ls gardening. Her present homo
at Plantdome, near Manhasset, !*? I .
ls a marvel of experimentation In gar?
dening.
She seems to have the ability to
coax the most reluctant flower out of
the ground. When a new seedman'.-.
e-atalogue arrives, other household af?
fairs quite ceaae?such sordid mat?
ters aa sleeping, writing books, eatlnn
and talking shop?till the catalogue
has be"n criss-crossed with approving
marks. And table conversation ls like?
ly to center about the gardens, as a.
yachtman's centers about storms and
rigging.
But her present garden ls nothing
as compared with the rare old garden
Mrs. Burnett once had at her beau?
tiful old manor house, Maytham Hall,
In England. She made the most beau?
tiful garden In all Kent?a county
noted for gardens.
Back of the mansion stretched old
brick walls, showing traces of ma?
sonry dating as far back as 1000 A. D.
Some of ihe walls were so old that
great cedars grew atop of them Some
were tumbled down, gray, with exquis?
ite tracery of lichens. Among the***
quite old walls stretched many gar?
dens.
The most interesting had once been
an apple orchard. The trees had rot?
ted away and the plot become a tan?
gled, wild hack o' the beyond. Here,
decided Mrs. Burnett, she would have
a ro8e garden In which to write. She
planted topps, not merely In a few
formal beds, but In masses, cllrabing
rosea and low shrubs, making one
great blaze of color.
WIDTH CF COUNTRY ROADS
Los Angeles Times Shows How Imper?
ative Some System of Uniformity
Has Become.
Some uniform width 08 country
roads should be established and strict?
ly adhered to on each road running
from the city to sea, or to the outer
boundaries of the county. It appears
that some roads on our present good
roads system vary from 40 to IOU feet.
The first figure ls as much too small
as the latter ls too large It ls indeed
unfortunate that 70 or 80 feet ls not
the official width and the overhanging
portion sold and the proceeds used to
, buy land to bring the minimum up to
the standard. Now that we have a
County Board of Forestry they ahould
be planting our chief highways, but
where t-ball trees be placed on a road?
way varying In width from 40 to 100
feet? If lon*;, graceful curves marked
the transition from the width to an?
other the problem would easily ba
solved, but "Jogs,- never!?Log An?
geles Times.

each end to engage the cord. ?
Son and Heir
Last year all that Sallyer could do
at the golf club was tu brag about hu
baby, who was too youthful, actually
to chum with his father's companions.
When a baby ls at that crumpled, red
dish stage which Indicates that Its agc
is still reckoning in days all that any
father ever does ls to brag at a safe
distance. He would be exceedingly
bored by any closer companionship
with his progeny.
This spring, however, Sallyer felt
that Bobert. Jr.. really was approach
ing a grown-up stage. He could walk
He could make noises that sounded
almost like w* rds. He could smile in?
telligently. Hence Sallyer felt that
Robert, Jr., bad developed into a son
who was quite a human being and en?
tirely worthy of introduction Into in?
telligent circles.
"Was-*" not let me take the kid out
to tbe club?" Balyer asked his wife
on a recent Saturday afternoon. "I
want to show him to the fellows. Oh,
of course he'll be good?and I won't
stay long It'll give you a chance to
get a little rest, too."
"It's a perfectly crazy Idea!" de?
clared Sallyer's wife. "What do they
care about babies at a golf club? They
want to play golf!"
"I guess lt won't hurt 'em to look
at my son!" declared Sallyer, fatu?
ously. "They're always shouting about
their kids. I want to show 'em a real
boy."
Sallyer and his son created all the
interest that Sallyer had hoped for
They arrived about 2 o'clock when
the verandas were well filled and
there was a rush to see the baby, who
was exceedingly sporty in his new
spring clothes. The men {.hook hands
with bim gravely and he bore him?
self with pc-ftt-tlgravity, greatly to his
father's delight. When the several
women began to coo over him Sallyer
withdrew to the cemipany of the men
and beamed
Chief among the enthusiastic femi?
nine admirers of Robert. Jr., was Miss
Quigley. Sallyer grinned a bit when
he observed her lift the baby upon
her knee, for he felt that Miss Quig?
ley was making a grand stand play
and was not above* getting solid even
with the Juvenile members of the Sall?
yer family. It was well known that
she had her eye upon Sallyer's broth?
er. Bob. Beyond the fact that she
could play a disgustingly good game
f golf. Sallyer admitted that he
, u.ildn't object to Miss Quigley as a
sister-in-law. though as a rule* it did
not do for a woman in a family, to
outshine the men in any line. She
doubtless was walting for Bob now.
Sallyer turned to greet an acquain?
tance. Five minutes later ho wai deep
in a discussion of the virtues of a new
ball. Ten minutes later he hail fu?
riously accepted a challenge to a
game to prove his contention. Fifteen
minutes later he was teeing olT at the
first hole with energy and absorption
It was a hotly contested game. At
Its finish Sallyer and his opponent
found their argument still undecided,
so they played another round. It was
a glorious afternoon and they idled
over the course. "When I can drink
In air like this," Sallyer said every
little while, "it makes me feel that
life Is really worth living!"
After he had finished playing Sall
yer and a group of men strolled into
a clump of apple trees and smoked
and then simultaneously sighed and
arose, for they must catch the 5:50
train. Beaming, flushed with exercise
and general happiness, Sallyer tramp?
ed Into tbe clubhouse. As he passed
the big living room door shrill. angry
yells smote his ear. Something at the
back of his brain was disturbed, bat
not till he had walked straight by a
little group in the window did some
dim thought put the brakes on Saw?
yer's feet.
He blinked a moment at the tableau
of Miss Quigley with Robert, Jr, in
her arms before he comprehended
Miss Quigley was flushed, disheveled,
awry, angry Robert. Jr., struggling in
her grasp, was furious. An unpreju
diced iierson might have Said that at
one particularly vicious yell of Itobert
Jr.'s, Miss Quigley shook him.
"Great snakes!" gasped Sallyer as
he comprehended. "I forgot?I forgot
all about his being here!"
"I should think you had!" Miss
Quigley assured him. "He seems a
very active child. I never worked so
hard in my IKe ag I have since 2
o'clock. And your wife has telephoned
five times for you!"
She added this as though rejoiced
to know that retribution awaited Sall?
yer at the other end of the line.
"Say," Sallyer begged. "I'm Beared.
Come on home with me and help tem?
per the atmosphere when I arrive. I
fancy Bob will drop in for dinner,
since he isn't out here!"
"Well," said Miss Quigley. "you de?
serve all you are going to get?but
I'm just mad enough at you to go
along and see you get it"?Chicago

Under Suspicion.
"Your prejudice against Mr. Young
rake is entirely unreasonable, pa," pm
tested the willful young heiress.
"There's a great deal in that young
man."
"Yes," replied her shrewd old fath?
er, "and sometimes I'm afraid It's a
great deal of the stuff I smelled on his
breath the other day."?Catholic
