CONTROL OF STREET TREES
Municipal Oversight Imperative I?
Conclusion Arrived At by Stu
dent of the SuDject.
After many years* study of the
street-tree problem, dig^'inr reports
from the principal cities in this coun
try, viewing such work done in Cali
fornia, one can fenn but one opinion
as to how the work may be properly
instituted and prosecuted. No satis
factory permanent improvement in
street planting may be done except un
der direct and strict municipal con
But very few property owners are
competent to choose the right tree fer
& specific street, and not one such
may live in your block or in your
street It ls all a question of.fitness,
of which its natural ability to thrive
under the hard conditions prevailing
In city streets is by far the most im
portant point. Then comes longevity,
for a tree should stand for centuries.
Even after the right tree is planted
lt must have intelligent care bestowed,
and all trees on one street should be
watered and pruned alike, set at the
same distance apart and given the
same general care, the latter consist
ing of numberless little things that
make an important factor as a whole.
Even the control of insect and other
pests becomes a serious matter early
In the life of any tree. Individual
property owners are possessed of too
great a variety of tastes, interests,
ideas of responsibility and degrees of
hanging on to the purse strings ever
to make unorganized effort more than
a failure or even organized effort much
of a success.-Los Angeles Times.
PAYS TO SAVE THE TREES
?They Add to Attractiveness and Com

It is a rare case when we cannot
?give the following admonition, says a
?writer In the Minneapolis Journal.
'Save all the trees possible on your
lani If a tree insists on standing In
th^ way when you are building a road,
?lee your road take a way around. Even
a tree left standing at the side of a
Toad or in the sidewalk may add pic
turesqueness to the land, which In
-itself in an attraction to buyers.
If the land bordering the road in a
residential tract ls thickly wooded,
<trees may not be needed in the plant
ing strip; Indeed, leaving all planting
out of the street tends materially to
.widening its appearance. It ls un
usually, however, a good idea to plan
for street trees. Their presence makes
for coolness and comfort and the gen
eral attractiveness of the region.
Forty feet apart is the best distance
for street trees and a safe one to fol
low. Planting at closer distance gives
the trees scant room for mature de
velopment. It is also more expensive
for the real estate man. Trees may be
planted opposite each other, if the
d?rtrnce betv.-ijen trees on opposite
isiaes of the street is forty feet. Should
.the distance be less, the trees had best
be "staggered"-that is, placed alter

Austin, Minn., with a population of
?about 8,500, hc.3 the usual activities of
a little westerc town. Five divisions
of the C., M. & St. P. railroad center
there for repair shop facilities. It
bas a large packing bouse, its own
electric light and water works, worth
$300,000; a good-sized cement plant,
Ibrick and tile works, etc. But this
prosperous community ls especially
notable for its "city beautiful" idea.
Not content with its parks of forty-five,
fifteen and five acres, it has estab
tlished a floral decorative scheme. The
well-paved streets are arranged on a
floral plan. The wide parkings of one
street are beautiful at one season
with a profusion of the wild crab tree's
3>loom; another presents a ribbon of
color from geraniums; another street
presents a line of catalpas, snowy with
blossoms, and so on. The workmen
.at the shops and railroad station at
their own expense annually employ a
landscape gardener, and the bare,
.dusty patches of waste ground there
abouts have been transformed. Spires,
-phlox, lilies of all kinds and flowering
shrubbery, as well as annuals, are

Card vi helps women in time
