INTEREST IN HOME IMPROVEMENT I FIFTY T0 GRADUATE LIGHTNING" CHANGE
Ta.ken Up in the Schools.
The question of home improve
ment has been t;iken up in earnest
by the citizens of Moline. particularly
the ladies. Prizes have lu'en ar
ranged fr, uiul efforts put forth t
interest the. school children. People
here are glad to note this, und hope
the (,'Dod work will still go on, and
that the work of home iinproveiuent
has come to stay.
The work in this city has received a
great tleal of attention. The teach
ers of the public schools have taken
up the matter with the children and
the children have been aildresed di
rectly on the subject.
There is no woilc that can be made
lnoie interesting fi r ihe eh.ldreii than
II. e care of garden, flower.. anJ vines,
There is something in the growing of
flower uiul the care of a garden that
will interest children when their ef
ft rts are properly encouraged.
. The season is now numi us when
the garden must be considered. T
neglect iiow is to neglect for th
rummer. I h's must not be done in
view of the effort io ereate a public
interest. If this movement i.s sue
cessfnl this summer, a more jierfect
organization will be formed that wili
include a representative in every
block in the city. Let the people
now show themselves public-spirited
and tasteful in the ornamentation
of the home residence lot. A united
effort in this direction will improve
Hock Island as it has never been
improved before. Let us see the
beautiful geraniums, sweet Has,
carnal ions, phlox, cations, nastur
tiums, climbing vines, window boxes,
a mi above all, smooth, clean lawns.
That cities may know the spirit
that is manifesting itself all over
the I'nited States in this line of civic
and home improvement, the follow
ing article from Harper's Weekly is
"Over in llrooklyn The lWock ISeau
tiful' has become a by-word for
those who aim to improve the ap
pearances of our city streets and
houses by the simple method of call
ing in nature to assist. When the
M-asnn of flowers and green grass
ami foliage returns, the country-side
becomes a fairy-land of imposing
splendor, but the cities of our coun
try have little opport unit y to change
their appearance by taking on a new
ilress of spring colors. The liiouofo-li-ius
rows of dull gray Mono and
red brick have little in them to re
lieve the eye or to suggest that the
world is in the midst of its season
of riotous eobrs. To bring glimpses
of the country to the citv would mean
civic art improvements which neither
the cuuning hand of the painter nor
of the sculptor could hope to rival
or even faintly imitate.
"To teach the children and inhabi
tants of the city to decorate their
front yards with vines, plants and
trees is to start a crusade against
present conditions that may eventual
ly result in remarkable transforma
tions. The Woman's, Municipal
league of Brooklyn has undertaken
this work in a practical and sensible
manner, and the 'Illook Beautiful is
one of the -results of their efforts.
The league extends its influence over
all the different sections of the city
and cooperates with all societies and
organizations interested in civic art
improvements. Several of the public
-schools have been transformed in out
ward appearance by the scholars,
who have lieen induced to experiment
with window flower-boxes. All
through the spring and summer
these boxes produce abundant clus
ters of flowers and trailing vines to
-add variety and beaut v to the street
view. The umpiestionable interest
of- the children show in the cultiva
tion of these llowcrs testilies to
their appreciation of things beauti
i ul. I lie board of education is now
considering the advisability or ex-
tenJing flower-culture in all the
schools, for the double purpose of in
teresting the scholars in the plants
and for decorating the front and
sides of the buildings.
"The art movement includes also
the planting of vines, gardens and
trees, l.'nlike New York houses.
many or the olocks in llrooklyn nave
front yards, and it is the purpose of
the leaders in the movement to take
block after block and make it -as at
tractive as possible through plant
and tree culture. The work extends
from the richest to the poorest
homes. A house-by-housc cam ass is
being carried on to see if the resi
dents cannot be interested in the im
provement. Witl more trees in the
front yards and on the sidewalks.
refreshing window boxes of flowers
in all homes, and vines climbing over
tin front of the brick and stone
houses, a transformation may soon
be made in streets which today have
little to offer in the way of variety
ano lieaaty. I5rooKlvn lias leen se
lected for this trial because it offers
lM-Jter facilities for improvement than
Manhattan. The soil is said to be
better adapted to tree and plant
growth, and many rows of houses
are litiilf linck from t he snlcwalK. so
that gardens of green can be. -culti
vated in front. When Brooklyn lias
been regenerated, the movement will
extend to the less aesthetic streets
of Manhattan; but, incidentally, at
tentiou may be called to the fact
that in recent years a gtd deal has
leeii accomplished in the latter bor
ough in this respect. There are up
town streets today which have beau
tiful rows of trees shading them, and
window boxes are tp-iite common or
l! aim 1ft s of houses and tenements of
the poorest quarters. The Boston
ivy. which makes many of the New
England cities so attractive and cool
in ap'e aranee in hot weather, has al
ready become established in many side
streets in Manhattan; but its more
general culture would prove a dis
tinet benefit to the nerves, morals
and health of the city. The more
general distribution of the seeds of
this beautiful climbing plant, with
general instructions of culture, would
prolmbly help forward the eivie art
improvements in the most effectual
milliner. With the fronts of house
decorated with this plant, and window-
boxes full of tlowers carefully cult
vated to add color to the back
ground or green, we would nave
'Block Beautiful within short
time right here in the midst or our
congested citv environments."
