Workingmen's Homes That Are
Economical and Sanitary.
SIMPLE AND ATTRACTIVE.
These Have Met With Great Success In
England, While Also the Idea Has
Been Taken Up In Germany and
ElsewhereRents Are Low and Own
[By Frank Koester, consulting engineer,
New York author of "Modern City
Planning and Maintenance."]
The garden city in its best form is a
well organized development, in which
from 100 to 500 homes make up a unit,
which is intended to grow little if any
larger. When additional demand
springs up'for quarters a new garden
city is formed elsewhere, and thus the
of the existing one is preserv
ed indefinitely, and the residents, in the
expectation of spending their lives in
their own homes, have every incentive
to embellish them and keep their
grounds in the best possible condition.
The garden city in plan should be
laid out in the simplest, yet most at
tractive manner. There being no traf
fic of any consequence the streets
should be planned with the degree of
irregularity which insures charm.
Some of the streets should be winding,
while' the straight ones should have
suitable terminals. Each house should
be provided with a spacious garden,
as it is from the gardens that such

cities take their name. Such gardens,
though partially devoted to vegetable
raising, should also be well laid out
flower beds, and the whole gar
den city should be subject to such reg
ulations as will insure sufficient atten
tion being given to the gardens to pro
duce the intended appearance. Grass
plots, trees, hedges, shrubbery and ar
bors should be in abundance both in
the front and in the rear of the bouses.
The neglect of the residents should not
be allowed to mar the appearance of
The houses may be quite simple and
compact in design, but they should all
be individual in character and by no
means the frightful rows of boxes, all
exactly alike, which are put up for
workmen's houses in most rural or
suburban places devoted to such pur
The economical design of the build
ings and the small expenses for streets
make the housing cost small, so that
the rent may be low or the workman
may in a reasonable length of time
become the owner of his own home.
Garden cities should be laid out with
in easy reach of transit facilities, and
natural advantages of site should be
seized whenever possible to give indi
viduality and charm to the plan.
The sanitary provisions of the gar
den cities should be carefully carried
out, and the details should be simple,
but solid in construction and as inex
pensive as possible.
A garden city is principally a place
f residence, and it should have as
few stores as possible, only those of
the most necessary character being
provided. A school may be the only
building of a public character.
In garden cities, however, which are
larger and located in a more or less
isolated position the suburban charac
ter is lost, and they become small
cities and should be accordingly pro
vided with a great number and vari
ety of stores and public buildings.
The city may have its own civic or
ganization, with schools, a library,
churches, museum, theaters and the
like, and be a complete civic unit.
Garden cities have mel with greater
success in England than anywhere else
as yet, although a greater number and
variety of them are now in process of
formation in Germany.
The principal English garden cities
are Port Sunlight, near Liverpool
Bourneville. near Birmingham, and
Letchworth. near London, while the
leading German garden city is Helle
rau, near Dresden. The numerous
workingmen's colonies in Germany,
which first began to be founded about
1863, are earlier prototypes of the
present garden cities, but on a less
comprehensive scale and with less

Making the Little
By C. C. BOWSFIELD
Modern dairy owners having over
come by means of silage the disastrous
effects of summer drought it is now
worth while for all farmers to take up
the question of irrigation.
This country is fast reaching the
level of $200 land, and every agmcy
that can aid in making the higher
priced farms pay must receive atten
tion. Irrigation is not oommonly un
derstood by farmers living east of the
Rocky mountains, and they have look
ed upon its marvelous results as some
thing belonging exclusively to the fron
tier. The fact is, however, a regulated
water supply is needed on every farm,
and in the absence of a public system
of irrigation individual or cooperative
action is called for.
There is no surer method of making
a farm pay than to irrigate it. The
Budlong place of 700 acre-* in Cook
county, 111., is both watered and drain
ed by means of the drainage canal,
and the system pays well in the enor
mous crops of vegetables which are
Water from the drainage canal is
pumped into ditches which border the
big farm. When these ditches are full
the water flows through ordinary

drainage tile to all parts of the prop
erty, and ciops ue thus supplied with
moistuxe through the roots instead of
from the surface. To drain the farm
after a heavy rain or when enough wa
ter has been supplied it is only neces
sary to open gates and allow the ditch
es to empty into the canal.
In thousands of cases farmers who
have ponds or streams can have a
Cheap and effective irrigation system
on the Budlong plan. Others can
build small reservoirs or dams on the
highest part of their farms and irri
gate either by surface ditches or
through tiling. The expense will
range from $1,000 to $3,000 on ordi
nary farms for constructing a suitable
reservoir. Draintiles are needed, any
way, and this item of expense is not to
be charged entirely to irrigation.
Where a pond or other body of water
is, so situated that a stream can be
run to the highest point in a field irri
gation becomes a simple matter, or if
water can be pumped into ditches or
furrows the proposition is easily and
cheaply handled. Light furrows about
eight or ten feet apart will serve to
carry the water through the fields and
down the slopes. This plan requires
that the furrows be kept full until the
ground is thoroughly soaked. In a pe
riod of drought this operation is to be
repeated from time to time. In all
surface irrigation it is important that
the soil be well cultivated as soon as
the water has been absorbed to pre
vent the formation of destructive
Kansas has installed the first irriga
tion plant owned by that state under a
law passed by the last legislature ap
propriating $125,000 for experimental
irrigation work. The plant consists of
six modern windmills furnishing pow
er and six four-inch cylinders, which
lift the water into a reservoir 100 by
150 feet and six feet deep, made of
dirt. In making a reservoir the top
soil is removed and the sides banked
with dirt from adjoining land. After
dragging and puddliug the reservoir is
found to hold water. After the reser
voir has been filled the floodgate is
opened and the water carried over the
It is feasible to construct smaller
reservoirs at high points on a farm.
Generally it will pay to construct a
concrete bottom. Ditches or furrows
leading from this irrigate the crops in
the simplest and cheapest manner
known to man. The matter of keep
ing the reservoir supplied is one that
each farmer can study out to suit his
own circumstances. In some cases a
windmill will serve the purpose, or a
email engine can be used for pumping
the water. These are cheap methods,
but they are practicable and enable
the landowner to regulate the mois
ture which his crops require.
There is no doubt but that a simple
form of irrigation will pay any farm
er. Crops are doubled in extent and
improved in quality by a regular water
supply, which is best worked in con
nection with a drainage system.
