BAN ON MODERATE DRINKING
Employers of Prominent Rsilway Sys
tem Prohibit Employes From
\ Touching Alcoholic Liquor.
The use of alcohol is receiving some
hard knocks these days. A prominent
railway system, not contented with the
general rule heretofore in force on rail
ways forbidding employes to drink
while on duty, now forbids employes
to indulge at all in drinking out of em
ployment hours, or in any other con
duct which -will impair their health
or make them less alert and less cap
able while on duty. The owner of
one of the nation's pets-a prominent
baseball team-announced that mod
eration in drinking is not sufficient;
the players on his team must leave
alcohol entirely alone and abondon cig
aret6. The justification for such rules
may be found not only in the difficulty
of being moderate in indulgence, but
also in the cumulative and after-ef
fects of dissipation. The world is
moving; the old fetish of "personal lib
erty" at whatever cost of danger to
(he public at large seems tc be losing
its power. The time may come when
even' man to whom the life and safety
of others are entrusted may be ex
pected or even required to be as ab
stemious as the bali players and rail
way employes just mentioned.-Jour

INTEMPERANCE ?S A DISEASE
Dr. Maxmillian Grossman Declares the
Question Is One to Be Handled
by the Doctors.
In an address before the last In
ternational Congress of Hygiene in
Washington, D. C., Dr. Maxmillian
Grossman, director of the National As
eoclat'on for the Study and Education
of Exceptional Children, declared that
intemperance was a disease and a
question to be handled by the doctors.
The utterance has been widely quoted
in the liquor press as bolstering up
the arguir.c-nts of the anti-prohibition
ists. What all thinking, common
sense people ask is that thc manu
tacture and sale of that which direct
ly causes this disease of intemperance
be forbidden by law. "Our national
health is physically our greatest as
set," wrote Theodore roosevelt, when
president of the United States. "To
prevent any possible deterioration of
the American steck should be a na
tional ambition. The preservation of
national vigor should be a matter of
The alcohol question is therefore a
WHAT HIS FAMILY RECEIVED
In Making Temperance Speech Eng
lish Workingman Makes Startling
Illustration With Bread.
In Manchester, England, a working
man was making a temperance speech.
He held in his hands a knife and also
a loaf of bread. Drawing the knife
across the loaf and taking off a slice
of moderate size, he said, "This is
what you give to the city govern
ment." He made another and larger
section, and added, "And this Is what
you give to the general government."
He now made a tremendous slash
with his knife that cut away a quan
tity of bread equal to three-quarters
of the entire loaf. "This," he said,
"you give to the brewer." The rem
nant after all this amputation was
only a thin slice. The larger fraction
of this he allotted to the public-house,
and of the few crumbs left he 6aid,
"And this you keep to support your
self, and your family." The drunk
ard's children know this well.
What Is Wanted.
What the temperance men want is
not the regulation of the liquor traffic,
but its destruction; not that ita de
struction; not Its evils should be cir
cumscribed (idle fancy), but that they
should, to the full extent of the
state's ability, be utterly eradicated.
No 6hilly-shally legislature can endure,
and it would be good for nothing if
it could. Stave in the heads of the
barrels, put out the fires of the dis
tilleries, confiscate the demijohns,
bottles and glasses that ha ve been pol
luted by the infernal traffic.-Horace
What Temperance Bringa.
More of good than we can tell;
More to buy with, more to sell;
More of co .nort, less of care;
More to eat and more to wear;
Happier homes with faces brighter;
All our burdens rendered lighter;
Conscience clean and minds much
Debts much shorter, purses longer;
Hopes that drive away all sorrow;
And something laid up for tomorrow.
Before and After.
There are now hundreds of children
in i Knoxville with clothes and shoes
to wear and something to eat who
went naked and hungry when saloons
were here.-W. P. Chandler, Chief of
Police of Knoxville, Tenn.

great country than that a barrier,
high as Heaven, should be raised be
tween the unpolluted lips of the chil
dren and the intoxicating cup."-John
ALONG THE PUBLIC HIGHWAY
Magnificent Idea Would Be to Plant |
Fruit cr Nut Trees or. Each
Side of the Road.
Away back in 1769 the Bavarian
government isued a decree requiring
all land owners to plant fruit trees
along the public highways bordering
their estates, and the work was sys
tematically under way about the mid
dle of the last century.
And new it is said that Bavaria has
a weaith of fruit trees, amounting to
something like $170,000,000.
Such a requirement might impose
something of a hardship upon small
estates and farm lands in America,
but one wishes that public sentiment
might have influenced the establish
ment of so gracious a custom a hun
dred years agc. apportioning the bur
den wherever it belonged. Fancy the
pleasure of a walk or a drive alor.!?
public highways in the gala spring
time of the year, with trees just
bursting into blossoming glory! Our
grandfathers and our great-great
grandfathors failed to leave us the
beautiful r.r.d valuable heritage, but it
is never too late for a beginning. And
without any consideration of the prac
tical end of it, its feasibility or ora-,
erwise, why could not such a move- ?
ment be started in America, jun a j
movement, based upon pride rather ;
We have our dreams of the coun-1
try beautiful and we expect that j
sometime we shall have reason to,
grow glad and proud of the wonderful
stretches of land that can hold their!
own throughout tho world. And in j
those dreams nut trees are just a?
riotously abundant as the mr: t
luscious, but not more tempting, fruit

The Crnn=. cs an Ornament, Way

pensable. I: is noted for its endurance
of the hot sun. Its leathery fol?ale- \
always looks fresh and green: t.*:<;
hotier the sun the more abundantly
the cannas flower.
Cannas aiso do well in the shade
although they (lower far less freely
under such conditions. Cannas shou'J
be p?an?ed in very rich garden soil,
which should be mixed if possible in
equal proportions with well rotted
When the plants axe growing freely
they should be watered freely. ?<t
the plants IS inches apart each way
and if more than one kind is used be
careful to plant the taller varieties
in the center of the bed-if it be cir
cular-with the dwarf varieties outside
or in front. Varieties may be obtained
which will reach the height desired.
Canna beds as a rule should be plant
ed to a single color. An excellent bor
der for a canna bed is salvia.
There are hundreds of named varie
ties of cannas, with large flowers and
with small, tall and dwarf growing. A
large variety in color both of blossoms
and foliage may be obtained.
Should plants which have been
started in a greenhouse be set out. they
should not be transplanted until ali
danger of frost is passed.
Artistic Park Building.
In small cities and towns we And
but one park, as a rule, and this ot
very limited extent. Scientific plan
ning and planting will make this area
appear several times as great and pos
sess at the same time the highest ar*
tistic value. Gracefully winding reads
and paths, with changing views and
vegetation at each new turn will make
a very small park or garden seem of
unusual interest and extent.
It must not be thought from iiiz
foregoing that the very best effects
may be gained in this way or that
the fundamental elements of a fair
sized park are its roads, paths, and
other accessories, for these are really
its necessary evils. The essential ele
ment in an ideal park is its natural
landscape beauty, the undulations ot
surface; canyons, hills, long level
stretches, or water, etc. All these, In
proper combinations and modifications
work the, ceaseless change and give a
fresh charm to every part. After this
comes the vegetation, and last of all
those most distinctly man-made things,
as: walks, drives, bridges, buildings,
Don't Expect Too Much.
Though this is the land of big
things, of marvelous growth and de
velopment, even in plant life, T\e must
not expect to have a finished garden
In a day. An attractive picture of a
park or home grounds cannot be built
In a day, week, month or year. Prop
erly to plant-the proper stuff, in
proper place and at proper distance
apart-requires much knowledge, ex
perience and 6tudy, with not a lil tie
I Ingenuity or genius; also an artistic
taste. Now that we have all of i*
put down on paper, it must appear that
this work should be dene only by or. j
experienced in the work. The wor -
in too many gardens is absolute!.,
meaningless; there is no good reaso.:
why the plants are placed where they
are. Such places have no character.
