MAKE PARKS OF BACKYARDS
Baltimore Has Demonstrated That
Division Fences May Profitably
Be Done Away With. |
: It has already been convincingly
demonstrated, here in Baltimore, that
the scheme of tearing down division
fences between city home ?backyards
and developing the unobstructed
stretch of apace thus provided as a
continuous flower garden or a grassed
lawn, is no chimerical or impractical
dream. It has been demonstrated be
cause it has been done on several back
stretches and partially accomplished
in hundreds of instances. By partially
accomplished we mean those instances
where two or three or four adjoining
householders have thrown their back
yards into a common and developed
the enlarged spaces into flower gar
dens. This backyard park idea, de
veloped to the limit of potentiality,
would mean the tearing down of all
fences on both sides the midway alley
and beautifying all the yards upon
some harmonious scheme of orna
mental gardening. *,
There are comparatively few block
centers in which this complete scheme
of ornamentation can be realized, for
the reason that many owners, wish to
build a garage, a stable or some other
kind of outbuilding in the backyard
and fronting along the alley. While
the pin ing of rear buildings in ?ne or
more of thc backyards of a block in
terferes with the complete realization
of the backyard parking scheme, it
need not prevent the partial carry
ing out of the plan. And as to back
buildings, their ugliness and inhar
raony can be greatly modified by
planting climbing roses or other climb
ing vines along their sides and rear
ends. There is nothing so utilitarian
-not even a stable-that every thought
of beautification ! should be abandoned

FIRE PREVENTION PAYS WELLj
Safe Construction Lowers Insurance
and RedwC" Depreciation
. Repairs Cost Little, i
If the walls and roof of the house
are of fire-resistant material fully 60
per cent of the fire hazard is overcome,
says the writer of an article on "Com
mon Sense Home Building," which is
published in the June issue of Con
struction. In the Interior it ls not nec
essary to eliminate wood from the fin
ishing. There is no objection to trim
on doors and even the floors above the
first may be of wood. /
The basement should, by all means,
be cut off from the rest of the house
by a masonry floor, protected stairway
and fireproof doors connecting with
the first Abbr. Partitions should be of
fire-resistive material in order to check
the rapid spread of flames. In other
words, think of fire as lt really is and
use common sense in the construction
of the house.
In -most localities a house of this
type is credited with a noticeable re
duction in insurance cost. Naturally,
too, the cost of maintenance is re
duced, painting and repairs are not
necessary. Another saving I factor is
the matter of depreciation. A frame
house with wood shingles, built as they
.?re today, will depreciate just three
times as quickly as a masonry house
with a common-sense roof.
Chicago's City Planning.
Chicago, the premier American city
in city-planning work, is about to in
vade the world of the "movies."
It is going to show other municipali
ties how to make themselves more at
tractive, healthful and prosperous, and
as an object lesson will display views
of present-day and future Chicago to
millions of people throughout the Unit
ed States, Canada and Europe.
To satisfy demands made by more
"than a hundred American cities which
are watching Chicago's planning ef
forts, the Chicago plan commission has
arranged to have the entire Chicago
plan put in film form.
The national, state, county and city
officials in Chicago, members of the
Commercial club, members of the plan
commission and the officers and direc
tors of the leading civic, social and
commercial organizations, industrial
clubs, real estate board and women's
clubs are to be visualized.
The Household Incinerator. -
An aid In sanitation especially use
ful in the country is a small garbage
incinerator which can be attached to
the ordinary kitchen range. The sur
plus heat from the range will dry the
garbage in a short time. After all the
moisture has been taken up, a damper
is opened, which allows a draft from
tue firebox to pass over the dried gar
bage and consume it to ashes in a
few minutes. The ashes can be re
moved from the incinerator without
being mixed with those of the range.
The garbage ashes constitute a valua

Mn. Jay McGee, of Steph
enville, Texas, writes: "For
nine (9) years, I suffered with
womanly trouble. I had ter
rible headaches, and pains m
my back, etc. it seemed as if
I would die, I suffered so. At
last, I decided to try Cardui,
the woman's tonic, and it
helped me'right away. The
full treatment not only helped
me, but it cured me."
The Woman's Tonie
Cardui helps women In time
of greatest need, because ft
contains ingredients which act
specifically, yet gently, on the
weakened womanly organs.
So, if you feel discouraged,
blue, out-of-sorts, unable to
do your household work, on
account o? your condition, stop
worrying and give Cardui a
trial. It has helped thousands
ol women,-why not you?
Try Cardui. E-71
