PAYS TO HAVE SHADE TREES
Their Worth to the Owner? of Prop?
' orly Can Be Shown In Actual
Dollar? and Cent?.
If a real estate dealer tells you that
the house or building lot you are think
ing ?f 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,
tor it has Hately been discovered that
the right kind of trees do increase the
Talue 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
ing in front of it A fair average of
the answers held that trees would
?Improve the value of the adjoining
land 40 per cent.
Expert tree appraisers say that a
shade tree in good condition and well
placed Is worth $1 per square inch
of cross-section measured at breast
"height At that rate, a tree one foot
In diameter is worth $113, while a
tree 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 .-outs a foot. The land value
worth $2"> a foot. The land value is
is $1.250. !f the trees are spaced 50
feet apart on the street there would
be one tree in front of the property.
The tree is two feet in diameter and
worth $452, which would increase thc
value of the lot 36 per cent.

Knew 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, Howers that are growing as na
ture planned them, and that are quite
as 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 soon, 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 thia. 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 stars now and then. See Amer
ica first? Surely, that's a fine deter
mination. But see your own country
-side 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
oublie incinerators or catch-all fur
naces in the alleys back of Its business
blocks. Four of these, paid for by an
assessment levied on the merchants,
have not only solved the rubbish prob
lem, but have reduced the langer of
fire from promiscuous bonfires. The
furnaces are built ot brick and do not
need watching while a fire i 9 burning
inside. They are four feet high with
a chimney portion extending one foot
above the main furnace Rubbish to
l>e burned io dumped into the furnace
through a 27-inch hole, covered with
a two-inch wire screen, in the top.
A good draft is secured by a draft
hole at the bottom, and the chiminey
flue is covered with a wire screen.
The chief advantages of the furnaces
are that they are always ready for
use and are perfectly safe.
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 Chronic
Rheumatism, Rheumatic Headaches,
Sciatic Rheumatism and Lumbago.
All 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.

Half Your Living
Without Money Cost
A right or wrong start in 1915 will
make or break most farmers in the
Cotton States. We are all facing a
crisis on cotton. Cotton credit is up
set. The supply merchant cannot ad
vance supplies on 1915 cotton. You
must do your best to produce on your
own t:cres the food and grain supplies
that l ave made up most of your store
debt in the past1
A r.oo? piece of garden ground,
rightly planted, rightly tended and
kept planted the year round, can be
made tu pay half your living. It will
save you more money than you made
on the ')est five acres of cotton you
ever grew! But it must be a real
garden, and not the mere one-plant
ing patci. in the spring and fan.
Hastings' 1915 Seed Book tells all
about the right kind of a money-sav
ing gardei] and the vegetables to put
in it. It tells about the field crops
as well and shows you the clear road

Independence. IT'S FREE. Send for
