PAYS TO HAVE SHADE TREES
Their Worth to the Owner* of Prop
' erty Can Be Shown In Actual
Dollars and Cents.
If a real estate dea ler tells you that
the house or building lot you are think
ing of buying is worth several hun
.dred dollars more because it is well
supplied with shade trees, don't be too
sure that he is trying to take
Advantage of you until you have
.counted and measured the trees. Very
-probably he may be telling the truth,
for it has lately been discovered that
the right kind of tree3 do increase the
.value of a piece of real estate.
In order to determine the value of
trees in residential districts the Mas
sachusetts Forestry association re
cently sought the advice of a number
of practical real estate men. These
men were asked this question: "How
much, In your judgment, do full-grown
shade trees along the street improve
the value of the adjoining land for
The majority of answers ranged
from 10 to 50 per cent, while some
went so far as to' state that a house
!lot would be worth 100 per cent more
:if full-grown shade trees were stand
ilng in front of it A fair average of
'the answers held that trees would
(Improve the value of the adjoining
latnd 40 per cent.
Exhort tree appraisers say that a
shade tree in good condition and well
placed is worth $1 per square inch
ol! cross-section measured at breast
leight. At that rate, a tree one foot
?E. diameter ls worth $113, while a
Tcree two feet in diameter is worth
For the sake of illustration, sup
pose that we take a good-sized house
lot. 50 by 100, or 5,000 square feet,
worth 25 c ?nts a foot. The land value
worth $2". a foot. The land value ia
ls $1,250. If the trees are spaced 50
feet apart on the street there would
bo one tree in front of the property.
Tile tree Is two feet in diameter and
"worth $452, which would increase the
vsJue of the lot 36 per cent.

Know Your Own Back Lot?
Do you, denizen of the suburb, know
your own countryside? In that patch
of woods back of your home there are
wonders beyond compare-wild things
that would be neighborly if you'd let
them, flowers that are growing as na
ture planned them, and that are quite
es beautiful as any so carefully tended
In the greenhouses of your wealthy
neighbor across the street. Go to a
near by woodland (better still if it's
a bit swamp) some twilight, socn, and
listen to the evening songs of the
feathered folk. You don't know what
music you may have without price un
til you've done this. Explore some of
the little streams that meander
through meadow and wood. Learn to
name the birds and the flowers, clas
sify the rocks and the soils-and look
up to ?tars now and then. See Amer
ica first? Surely, that's a fine deter
mination. But see your own country
?ide even before you see the rest of
the United States.-The Countryside
A splendid way to keep the streets
?free from waste paper, rubbish, etc.,
has been established in Glendale, near
Los Angeles, Cal. The city has built
jpublic incinerators or catch-all fur
naces in tbe alleys back of its business
blocka. Four of these, paid for by an
assessment levied on the merchants,
Jxave not only solved the rubbish prob
lem, but have reduced the danger of
fire from promiscuous bonfires. The
furnaces are built of brick and do not
need watching while a fire is burning
ins: de. They are four feet high with
a chimney portion extending one foot
above the main furnace Rubbish to
te burned io dumped into the furnace
through a 27-inch hole, covered with
a two-inch wire screen, in the top.
A ?jood draft is secured by a draft
bola at the bottom, and. the chlminey
flue: is covered with 8v wire screen.
Tho chief advantages of the furnaces
are that they are always ready for
use and are perfectly ?aie.
Some Forms of Rheumatism
Rheumatism is a disease charac
terized by pains in the joints and in
the muscles. The most common
forms are: Acute . and Chroni
Rheumatism, Rheumatic Headaches,
Sciatic Rheumatism and Lumbago
Ail of these types can be helped
absolutely by applying some good
liniment that penetrates. An ap
plication of Sloan's Liniment two
or three times a day to the affected
part will give instant relief. Sloan's
Liniment is good for pain, and es
pecially Rheumatic Pain, because it
penetrates to the seat of the trouble,
soothes the afflicted part and draws
the pain. "Sloan's Liniment is all
medicine." Get a 25c. bottle now.
