NEED FOR CITY PLANNING
United States Might Well Take a Les
son From German Builders Who
Have Studied the Work.
The marked advance in thought
about city planning is indicated b3
the reception accorded the report c
the New York commission on build
lng districts and restrictions. Ter
years ago the suggestions made ir
that report would have been regard
ed as highly revolutionary and head
ing straight for Socialism.
For one thing the report recom
mends the establishment of a "zone
system," a method long ago adopted
in Germany, and a plan long needec
in American cities. The economic
waste, the upsetting of realty values,
the disturbance of the city's fiscal sys
tem, involved in the growth of every
thriving American city has been self
evident. This has been brought about
by the Incursion of factories into old
residential districts, lowered values, a
boom in another section, and then the
same story over again, with homes al
ways just one jump ahead of the fac
City experts abroad provided for
that by assigning factories to certain
zones, and homes to others. In only
a few cities in this country has any
such restriction been attempted.
New York has other problems to
face from which Washington was hap
pily freed by an unusual foresight.
The skyscraper menace we have
avoided. But New York blocks have
suffered from the incursion of one
high building, then others so built
that the early ones had light and air
cut off, and their presence resulted in
the bottom dropping out of values in
the rest of the block.
Fortunately limited height and
courtyard provisions already have a
plaoe in the building laws of most
cities. The one feature in the New
York commission's report that should
appeal to most American cities is the
establishment of zones for industries
and other zones for homes.

The mayor will advertise the city
on a scale never before contemplated.
Ke will ask for an appropriation of
$500,000 as soon as the money can
be provided for carrying out his plan.
The mayor hopes to establish either
a bureau of publicity in one of the de
partments or a new department of
publicity. A suggestion was made to
the mayor at a luncheon given recent
ly by the Poor Richard club as to the
* value of advertising the city, and he
promised to consider the project. An
nouncing that he would recommend

that the appropriation would go into

Looking Always to the Future.
An old-fashioned way of looking at
the city's situation is expressed by an
Indianapolis newspaper, which says:
"A city's physical improvements, of
whatever sort, have definite value to
the city and its property, calculable In
lullars and cents. They facilitate busi
ly ?ss and make living conditions more
pleasant. In that way they are an as
set for residents and property owners
and act also as an inducement to per
ons on the outside to come and make
their homes here.
"Indianapolis ranks favorably with
the most progressive cities of its class

park improvements. The parking of
waste land among some of the smaller
s'reams and on Fall creek has given
an impetus to values of property ad

day is not remote when barren areas
along these streams will be most at
tractive residence sections."

BUFFALO BURR IS INJURIOUS '
Grows Vigorously, Withstands Dry
Weather and ls Covered With
Spines on Stems.
Buffalo burr is a native of western
Kansas and Nebraska, where it is
often found in alfalfa fields. The hay
shipped from those states often con
tains buffalo burr seed, and in this
way It gets a start in feed lots. The
plant looks like it might be one of the
very worst pests, for it grows vigor
ously, withstands dry weather splen
didly, and is covered with spines both,
on the stems and on the burrs. The
blossoms look like yellow potato blos
soms, and after they are gone a spiny
Buffalo burr looks more dangerous
than it really is. It grows but one
year, and spreads only by seed. Those
of our readers who find buffalo burr in
their feed lots will do well to cut it off
at the surface of the ground before it
goes to seed. It has not become com
mon as yet in the corn belt, and the
chances are that it will not.
MEAT FOOD INCREASES EGGS
On Most Farms There Is Plenty of
Skim Milk and No Better Plan
Than Feeding to Fowls.
In the poultry feeding experiment
made at the Purdue university it waa
found that the addition of some form
of meat food to the ration increased
the egg production about 100 eggs pei
pullet per year. This would mean
about 10,000 eggs in a farmer's flock
of 100 hens. The income per bird in
the pen fed no meat food was 67 cents.
The pen fed skim milk gave an in
come of $2.78, the highest in the ex
periment, due to heavier winter egg
Poultry raisers have long been fa
miliar with the schedule of "grains,
greens, grits and grubs," but farmers
as a rule have paid too little attention
to the "grubs" part of it ?This ^erl
ment shows the importance of provid
ing a substitute for the bugs and
worms the fowls get during the sum
mer season when they are permitted
to range. On most farms there is
plenty of skim milk and no better use
can be made of it than to feed it tc
the chickens. Meat scrap and fish
scrap can be purchased if skim milk
is not available.
BEES ARE FARMERS' FRIENDS
Without Little Honey-Gatherers There
Would Be but Small Crop of In
Do not spray the fruit trees while
In bloom, fer that will kill the bees.
Many farmers do this every year,
when the bee3 are their best friends.
If it were not for the bees they
would get but little fruit, and that ol
very inferior quality, and yet they
will carelessly murder these little help
ers by the thousands.
Bees are valuable, and no man has a
right to nut out poison and kill them.
It is no advantage to spray the trees
when in bloom, and it is even better
to wait until the petals fall and spray
when there is nothing to prevent the
poison going into the heart of the
calyx before lt closes.
INSECT HARMS MANY PLANTS
Cutworm Is One of First Pests to Ap
pear-Injures Cauliflower, Cab
bage and Other Crops.
The cutworm is one of the first
pests to appear, and kills cabbage,
cauliflower, cucumbers, squashes, mel
ons, corn, tomatoes, and peas.
In case of plants that are transplant
ed, wrap with a collar of stiff paper be
low ground and an Inch or more above
the surface, and dig out the worm,
which will be found Just below the
surface near the cut plant
Air-slaked lime may be spread over
the surrounding soil.
CARING FOR RASPBERRY TIPS
They Should Be Dug Up and Replaced
-Keep Patch Clear of Surplus
Plants and Clumps.
Dig up all the rooted raspberry
tips and replant them where you want
them, for they should not be allowed
to grow in the original patch to make
Keep it clean of surplus plants and
the old clumps will bear better and be
much more pleasant to work around.
Dewberries need the same care as
raspberries in this respect, though the
vines run to such lengths it ls more
of a job to keep them in place.
