THE VALUE OF PRETTY LAWNS
Make Plans Now to Beautify Grounds
Around Your Home in Spring
Pergola Very Ornamental.
Landscape gardening and architecture
most properly Include all forms of dec*
oration that will Increase the attrac
tiveness of the lawn, and such as will
add at the same time a monetary value
to the home. It is not desired to have
simply a pretty lawn, but one that will
enhance the value of the property it
self, says House and Garden.
There are many things that will ma
terially Increase the value of the lawn
from an artistic standpoint. Among
these may be mentioned the pergola. It
ls one of the newer forms of lawn dec
oration In this country, but deserves
encouragement on the part of the real
home lovers, whose desire ls to add to
the home plan.
One should understand, however, that
the pergola is not simply a decoration.
It possesses useful features in addition
to Its attraction as an ornament, and
wherever erected increases the charm
of the setting.
It serves as a bower, a retreat, and a
nook. It may be covered with vine3,
and serve as a refuge from Inclement
weather. Frequently it leads off into
the lawn and sometimes to the garage,
or terminates at a pond or miniature
garden. At other times it will serve as
a bridge, with columns at either end,
In this way spanning an otherwise
open ravine and adding to the archi
tectural effects of the home. In coun
try homes it has a special place, be
cause of the expanse that many of the
country abodes possess, thereby mak
ing its necessity more keenly felt.
Thus we see that the pergola is In
reality a useful ornament, and one that
is finding more general favor as home
builders come to realise its need. It
should be given a fair share of the
construction man's consideration. The
Study of the varying materials with
which It ls built and the effects of the
different types of architectural varia
tions are widespread. Its very popu
larity has been the fundamental rea
son why there are today a larger
number of the structural materials
nsed in its manufacture.

Value of "Having Residence With
Some Land Around IL
We are today, for the second time in
America, reaching the homestead pe
riod. We had it back in the old colo
nial days, when we built substantially.
Then came the second generation of
our foreign-born population, and their
spirit was expressed in elaborate and
futile imitations of homes unsuited
to American lives.
More leisure has come to us, a more
settled spirit of patriotism that breeds
sympathy with all national achieve
ment, and the time now seems ripe
for the building of hemes suited to the
American spirit, substantial, comfort
able, facing the servant problem frank
ly, realizing a growing iDterest in beau
ty, expressing, too, the keynote of cur
civilization - individually, says the
Because we are demanding horr.es of
the type that we want to live in, home
building has become the most absorb
ing topic of this generation. Whereas
even a few years ago the difficulty was
to keep the country boy and girl in
auy way attached to the land, the city
holding the lure that unbalanced all
youth, today the world is reaching
back to home life, gardening, farming;
you lind boys who work in the city tell
ing you frankly that they travel many
miles a day rather than give up coun
try life. You lind young women plan
ning from the day of their marriage to
have a home of their own, built to
their needs, furnished as they like it,
BEAUTY VALUABLE IN ITSELF
When You Plant Shrubs Around Your
Home Remember Sime Are Use
ful and Ornamental, Too.
A*very practical writer in a popu
lar magazine recently condemned the
American custom of planting purely or
namental trees and shrubs. Such
things, he contended, performed no
useful work, and ought to be discard
ed. The redbud and flowering almonds
should give place to cherry and peach
trees ; and roses and spireas, presuma
bly, should make way for currants and
gooseberries. Only thus could we have
a garden scheme worthy of a practical
There are elements of truth in such
a doctrine. Too many people fall to
recognize the beauty Inherent In plants,
trees and shrubs cultivated for food
in a cherry tree orchard, in a field
of blossoming clover or ripening wheat
But the central idea of this practi
cal creature Is false altogether, for
he falls to recognize that beauty ls
worth while in and of itself, and needs
no indorsement from either stomach
or pocketbook. Mohammed knew what
he was about when he uttered his fa
mous advice: "He that hath two
loaves of bread, let him sell one and
buy narcissus ; for bread is food only
for the body, but narcissus ls food for
the soul."-Boston Courier.
