Debris on Site of Old Building Being
Sorted Over for Sal-
The new storehouse that is to be
built to replace the burned structure
at Uock Island arsenal recently de
stroyed by fire is being1 planned at
the arsenal draughting rooms.. . The
building will have steel framework
and-the facing will be of brick- sim
ilar to that used in the oil house and
resembling closely in color the stone
of the other buildings. The form of
the old building will lie maintained. ,
In the clearing away of the wreck
age which has been going on since
Ihe ruins cooled after the fire au ef
fort has been -made to save as much
materialas possible, and to this end
nil the debris has been thoroughly
sorted over, that which was fine be
ing screened. It will be a couple of
weeks longer before the amount of
salvage will be determined.
At Work Four V-fc.
Four weeks have already been de
voted to clearing the wreck." The
basement floor of the old building is
of concrete, and most everything
went down in a mass on it.' a costly
conglomerate three feet deep.
Jlere and there- is found something
that has gone through the fire with
little damage, but these articles are
not many and they are not worth
much. The same inscrutable law of
nature ordains that the cow killed
by the cars is the best on the farm
and makes it fall out that the stuff
burned and ruined in a fire is the
mpst valuable. That was the case at
storehouse A. There are a lot of
rusted and warped and worthless
metal parts of 25.000 small arms stor
ed there that will be sold as old jron.
There are other things that will go
to market with them. Here and there
a brass buckle is being brought to
light in fair shape except for the ver
digris on it, but there is not much

However, with the; exception of here

as good as new.
TALES OF THEATRE
Miss' Henrietta Crosmau who will
be seen at the Illinois the night of
Thursday, March . 26, was au army
girl. She was born at a United States
post' and sjient her early life in gar
risons. Her childhood' conipumbiut
were the young West Pointers who
had had recently joined- their regi
ments, and they taught her to ride
and shoot until she Was as expert" as
they. Miss Crosman has always been
enthusiastic over out-of-door sjiorts
for women, and she' is" not" only a
skillful horse-woman, but she is a
famous swimmer and yacht-woman.
Few jiersons ran' handle a sail boat
with more readiness than she, and one
of her chief delights during her sum
mer holidays, is to go out in weather
which would deter many a seasoned
mariner. Miss CVosinan-is a genuine
advocate of out-of-door exercise for
girls and women, and believes it is a
health giver and beautifier. The
gowns which "Miss Henrietta Cms
man wears in "The Sword of the
King," are marvels of beauty and ar
oused great admiration among the
women .who saw them at the Grand
opera house in Chicago.' They- are
made from fabrics which cannot be
duplicated in this country. - The exact
material is not in existence in the
United States except in Miss Cros
man's costumes. All were especially
made for the Chicago engagement,
and are said to be far more hand
some than those which Miss Cros
man used in New York and the east.

jjictures most jiojnilar with the high
school pupils - are nature jiictures,
while the work of the great artists
received but a small number of votes
comjiared with the others. The plan
is to place one ,piet lire in each session

which at juesent is almost entirely
without anv decoration.
Principal Brown, in general assem
bly, yesterday made a short talk on
the formation of clubs among the
students. . He took the stand .that if
the club did not have some -worthy
object beside being a social organiz
ation it was a detriment to the school
and of no renl value- to the individual
members. He showed that all the
so-called class trouble? in the school
for several years was due not to the
action of the. clas.s members, but of
the club members. He then mentioned-the
u K. C. club, coiiosed-of jun
ior girls, as a club that had shown
itself to be an organization that had
the best interests of the school in
mind. He thanked the girls for the
interest they had taken in the art ex
hibit and jn the decoration of the
building. As was mentioned before,
Ihe girls have ordered two large stat

TiM TO IMPROVE
Season for Planning Methods of
Beautifying City and
Homes at Hand.
TAKE UP LAST TEAK'S" WORK
President Jackson, of Improvement
Association, Sends Sug
gestions. The time is at hand when the pub
lie should begin actively to jirejiaro
for the ujibuilding of the city beau
tiful along the lines ujmii which such
an admirable start was made last sea
son in llocklsland. Everybody should
bo interested in this work, for the
sjiirit is abroad in the land and our
own city must be kept in line with
lion. William Jackson, jiresidcnt of
the Home In.ijirovenieiit association,
of this city, is in California taking a
iniuh. needed rest. Although he is ill
a land of jerj)etual sunshine and flovw
ers, he has not forgotten the season,
and he sends The Argus the following
clipping from the California -Cultivator
ujjon imjjrovement societies, the
hints and suggestions embodied being
;!i-rtinent at this time:
"in all jublic enterprises the first
stej to be taken is to begin by inter
esting ourselves. Commence to beau
tify and improve your own home
grounds and the improvement of the
town or village will follow.
"It is now srcnerallv conceded that
t en , from a money standpoint, it
jiays. not only by attracting desira
ble settler.-, but it adds much to the
value of your own projierty. A short
account of - the plan ..-loo generally
adoj)ted will be a good illustration
how not to do it;
The l'ul Wy
"Late in sjning when other neces
sary work on the farm or orchard is
nnished and the vigorous growth of
weeds on the jilace arrests our atten
tion, the ground is plowed and a visit
is made to the nearest nursery, with
no very definite idea of the number
cf plants, the kind, or where we in
tend to set them. The general result
is that a jumble of things is purchas
ed, often what the nurseryman ad
vises, overgrown, spindly, unsuitable
plants that he is only too anxious to
get rid of; plants with deformed, dis
torted roots, only kejit alive in a' lath
house by daily sjirinkling. Commenc
ing thus, we court failure. Such stuff,
even if cared for, takes years to
bring out, and if neglected for a short
time soon dies. Having purchased
these plants, they are .taken home
and dotted about wherever there hap
pens to be an open sjace, regardless
of anv design or" consideration of
harmony or foliage or. flowers. The
jiruning shears, saw" and ax have
done more to disfigure our gardens
than drought, want of care or all
other causes combined.
"To jrojcrly beautify our homes
the chief object is to cover up the
ground. Before buying jdants study
the unsightly objects, such as white
washed fences, stables, outbuildings
and corrals, then jnit in stakes where
you need trees or thrubs to hide
them from the road or house. De
cide what kinds of shrubs or trees
you need; do not use too many sjm?
cies, but jilant in groups of four or
six together. Having jirepared a list,
select only young and vigorous jilants
not generally over two feet- high, on
ly such kinds as succeed with little
irrigation or care. If possible
try and obtain some of our native
shrubs Mich as the holly (Hetero
nieles), the sumach (Khus ovata) and
the wild cherry (Primus illicifolia);
they are evergreen with bright shin
ing leaves, shedding the dust in sum
mer. We may sum up by rejieating
the following rules: Start only with
young, healthy trees ami shrubs;
plant in groujis to hide unsightly ob
jects; choose such plants as stand
drought; and. above all, never butch
er' or trim uj, rather cut back and
shorten so as to induce your shrubs
to cover the ground.
"Having commenced operations at
home, the next steji in city imjrove
jnent is to, find some neglected, un-
cared for spot and combine to im
prove it; you will not have far to go;
you will find it too often around your
school houses. There are few school
grounds either in our cities or coun
try that are not a standing reproach
to the community in which they
stand. Apply the same rules you ap
j)ly to the home to the school
grounds; cover the whitewashed
places with climbers or shrubs, jdant
around the outhouses in the rear.
Plant avenue trees around the houses
about four feet inside the line, con
fine the groups of shrubbery to the
unused corners; the weeds will show
the spaces not used bs a play ground.
"Clear away the rubbish and weeds,
especially near the railroad depots
or electric lines, always remember
ing' that first impressions to visitors
mean much. These improvements
may often be carried out by means
of basket, picnics on Saturdays, the
boys and girls joining. Above all, do
not Jet your association be led into
long. discussions; almost all new en
terprises may be .talked to death.
Choose something that all can agree
on; and proceed to do it. In this way
can a good beginning; be made to
wards' city improvement."
