PLAN FOR FUTURE GROWTH
Reasons Why Town's Development
Should Be Looked To Many Year?
Before lt May Come.
This is the spirit of the publication,
btu under the heading "Prevision, Pre
vention and Preparedness" the editor
lays down certain principles that apply
generally and will be repeated in all
sorts of variations at the joint housing
and planning conference. These prin
ciples rim as follows, and are worth
"City planning is the exercise of
municipal imagination. It is the sci
entific and expert vision, of inevitable
city growth and the preparation of
plans to provide for that growth. It
ls municipal prevision, municipal pre
vention and municipal preparedness.
"City planning is the civic sense that
refuses to build today what must be
torn down tomorrow: that refuses to
believe that the future will not be
greater than the past ; that refuses to
act on the theory that the growth of
ten years gone by will equal the
growth of ten years to come.
"City planning is the wisdom that
insists the distrust of the future in
sures distress in the future; that doubt
of future growth insures beyond doubt
an unhealthy growth; that lack of
preparation for growth means future
expense in correction of unregulated
"City planning Is economy. It is not
the economy of doing without. Doing
without is not economy. It may be ex
travagance. A city that does without
parks and playgrounds in abundance
ls extravagant in life and health. A
city that ignores an opportunity for
the acquisition of the things that make
for health and happiness may lose the
ONE'S OWN PLEASURE FIRST
Something for Man Who ls Going to
Cultivate a Garden to Keep
in His Memory.
Do not seek to set the world on fire,
the neighbors to talking, or the pas
sersby to wondering. Garden for your
self alone, for we should garden for
pleasure only and if we stray tar from
this fundamental it were better we
should not garden at all. Do not de
sire too much, but build simply, yet
have every desire carried out as f?r
as you may, for the narden must be
yours. It' it is buSt to accord with
another's taste it were better to sell
it to that oilier and build the next
one for yourself. The home garden
is for the affections and if it is well
ordered it will satisfy and insofar as
you are satisfied you have succeeded.
If you have built according to anoth
er's ideas the garden is not worth the
while to you. Therefore we should
garden for pleasure, for contentment
of mind, whether we grow cauliflow
ers or carnations. Grow tin- very
best Howers you may. not necessarily
the best kinds, but the best of their
kind. Do not spend money for rare
or costly material. It is far better to
grow a splendid geranium than a sick
ly orchid. And look ever to quality
rather than quantity. If your taste
runs rather to fruits or vegetables,
rather than to flowers, indulge it.
You are to garden for yourself, not
for the rest of us.
Trees for the Home Garden.
Trees about the house should have
their uses. In some cases some are
needed for ornament alone, but these
: generally should be near or at the rear,
serving as frame and background, one
or botli uses being sufficient for plant
ing. Some very showy Howers are
borne on trees anti occasionally a sky
line is needed. Hut trees are for shade,
not always to be cast for man's direct
benefit, but shade for.other plants; or
to aid in the conservation of moisture
for other plants. Perhaps a windbreak
is needed and the matter of protection
is the tree's strongest recommendation.
Therefore when planting trees on the
home grounds plant first where actual
ly needed ; you may not find place for
more. In a small gajden few or no
trees should be used ; one or two is
sufficient. The place should be framed
?or outlined with shrubs.
Keep Roof in Repair.
If roofs were repaired periodically,
the house owners' expenses would bc
a gre .t deal less. A large number of
people neglect the care which should
be given to the upkeep of their roofs,
consquently they become damaged be
yond repair, and the owner is com
pelled to go to the unavoidable ex
pense of paying for the installation of
After heavy rainstorms, especially
in the spring and winter months, the
roofing should be thoroughly examined
far leaks which may develop into trou
ble causing a waste In the material and
result in a great deal of damage te the
interior of the home.
If You Want a Clean Town.
Let's not overlook the fact that a
clean town depends much more upon
the individual home than upon clean
np campaigns. Every citizen wants a
clean, healthful town. Then let every
fellow clean his own property, then
ask h's neighbor to do likewise. But
?OE't ask' the neighbor to do it first
