BUILDING ON DEFINITE PLAN
Country Has Been Quick to Recognize
Advantages of Having Expert
Lay Out City.
Town planning has received so much
attention within the last ten years that
It is developing Into a new profession
and one that promises to be must re
munerative. The obvious advantage
of a brand new city, built up from tie
ground on a plan In harmony with
modern developments, over the city
which was evolved from a small vil
lage in which sanitation, convenience
and civic beauty were unthought of.
has been recognized by a number of
corporations In the selection of sites
for manufacturing plants. The need
of persons competent to plan new
cities ns well ns to remodel old ones
led the University of Pennsylvania to
establish a course of city planning. It
has been under the direction of B. An
trim llaldemnn, city engineer of Phil
adelphia ; Carol Aronovlcl and Bernard
Newman of the Philadelphia housing
commission and Prof. James P. Llch
tenberger of the university.
A number of cities are now estab
lishing commissions for the purpose of
procuring a definite plan suited to In
dividual municipal need. New York
recently established such a controls,
slon and the group of public buildings
which are adding so materially to the
efficiency and beauty of Cleveland
were built from plans which recog
nized the peculiar and distinctive con
ditions of that city. Dallas and Cal
veston. Tex., Birmingham, Ain., and
Reading, Pa., aro among other elites
which have recently adopted a definite
plan upon which future Improvements
will lie based.

EMPTY LOTS MADE TO BLOOM
Denver's School Garden Crusade Is In
tended to Turn Them All Into
Patches of Beauty.
Denver is carrying on a school gul
den crusade that is expected to make
a beauty spot of every empty lot la
that city. Already the results are said
to be remarkable. Houston has thou
sands of vacant lots—more of them
probably than any other city of our
size in the country—and they are not
things of beauty. Few of them are at
all presentable, but they are ever pres
ent. Some (here are that are examples
of the loveliness that any vacant span
may he made to show, but these nr
few. Yet It Is easier to make a lot
beautiful here than anywhere else in
the country. There Is no excuse for
a single ugly spot In any city.
BEST KIND OF COMBINATION
White Lilies With Background ol
Blue Delphiniums Will Make
Any Garden Beautiful.
Put ft down in your garden note booh
that In another year you will havr
rows of white lilies with a background
of blue delphiniums. If you have onc<
seen that combination you will not
rest content until you have it In yout
own garden. In u [dace near Tuxedo
N. Y.. there have been this year fmft
rows of lilies with the delphinium
background across the entire end of a
large garden. Its beauty was equalei
only by the fragrance.
Down With the Street Sign.
Signs that encroach uism the street!

be safer and less cluttered up If the
police will really enforce the recent
municipal ordinance limiting the sir

hang and they Introduce a distinct ele

IN THE CRISIS OF BATTLE
I Awful Strain Upon the Nervea of Sol
diers Before an Assault It
Made on Enemy.
In modern warfare the ten min
utes preceding an infantry attack hold
I for both sides the most Intense strain
I human nerves can withstand. To
crouch in shelters through hours of In
, tense bombardment, to be fully con
' selous during that suspense of what Is
coming, and finally, when the shells are
1 falling like hailstones before the bar
rage Is lifted further back, to wait for
the appalling cry from the lookout:
“Here they come;" nil these expcrl
-1 ences are likely to torture exceedingly
[ and stupefy a defending force. But for
1 the attacking soldier there Is, perhaps,
a more trying experience, writes a cor
‘ respondent to the London Globe.
The morning of the attack dawns
1 and preparations are made. Yet the
strain Is not apparent. Only when the
last buckle Is fastened, the last bayo
net fixed, and the sergeant major nods
; meaningly to the company commander.
do the nerves tighten. Each man
; stands close against the parapet, bur
dened with his weighty equipment and
grasping a rllle. Despite the clamor
’ of guns, the awful silence of walling
' inactive Is unbearable. Here and there
a man Is nervously fingering the am
munition pouches on his belt, another
with his eyes fixed on the trench wall,
1 runs a trembling finger over the bayo
net edge. There Is no conversation
except for an anxious, whispered col
loquy between two officers who are
comparing watches. Then they, too,
turn lo face the sandbags, silent.
You feel that something must snap
unless you speak; hut the man by
your side Is looking up at the airplane
that swims high up in the blue sky.
| Madly and more madly shriek the
shells. No enemy can he alive In those
tortured trenches opposite; the dead
lie In the french bottoms, lacerated and
I fantastically twisted. And now. you
tire hovering on the brink between the
Knowahle and the Unknowable. There
Is u hereafter —you are quite certain of
that. It Is Wonderfully comforting. . . .
The company commander Is speak
ing. and Ids words seem strangely mun
dane and Inconsequent; but their mean
ing penetrates to the material under
> standing. With a final, unbelievable
crash, the shelling reuses. A whistle
shrieks and the charge la on.
New Grounds for Divorce.
There have recently been furnished
i by hu English novelist new grounds for
divorce, namely, ''lncompatablllty of
furniture.” This Is not ao slight as It
■teems, for, though the day has gone by
when a woman can torment her bus
hand with the “tidy," “the lamhre
tutu” anil the “nnlltuacusitar," there
are other means to the same end.
There Is. for Instance, the futurist
footstool—a small affair of gaudy tint

Shucks I
A pedestrian on Hu- Circle saw a
glittering object on the sidewalk and
sloo|H-d to pick It up.
“Shucks!” he exclaimed as he ex
amined the piece of Jewelry he had
found; “It Isn't worth a dollar."
“Well, what did you expect to find?"
asked a passerby.
"Oh, I was Just commenting on
: my luck. I’ve found hundreds of
things In the course of time, hut noth
ing very valuable. I was hoping my
luck would turn."
The passerby, after taking a few
steps toward the gutter. sllp|ied a dia
mond ting off his finger, stooped and
held up the ring, pretending to have
found It.
"Whut do you think of that!" said
Hie astonished finder of things. “Say,

“Not for sale," and the passerby pul

U was an Innocent-looking quart
1 can of malachite green prepared paint.
Mrs. Jaudlvere had bought It down
town. attracted partly by the show
1 card of glossy squares, ostensibly cot
1 ored hy the Kub-er-Steel pigments,
and partly by the fact (hat the can.
which under ordinary circumstances
would have cost fifty cents, was
marked down for this day only to
forty-seven cents. Janrtlvere stalled
when Mrs. Jaudlvere sold. It was a
clear saving of three Ceuta and for an
additional two cents she was able to
buy quite a nice little palnl hruah.
1 Really It was like getting a paint
’ brush for nothing.
“What are you going to do with
It?" he asked.
1 "There are many things I can do
with it. 1 thought (he woodwork In
the spare room would look well in that
shade of green."
“Well, you’ll have to wait awhile
then. Brother Robert will be here on
Thursday and we don't want the room
smelling of polnL I don't believe you’ll
get a painter at this season st a day's
' notice. They're all too busy.”
“Why, I'm going to do It myself.'
sold Mrs. Jsndlvere. "What did you
suppose? That's what this paint Is
for. It'a all ready mixed and a child
' cun apply It. It says so In the clr
> culur. It dries In ten hours, so there
won't he any trouble about the smelt."
■ "Have It your own way." said Jan
dlvere, resignedly.
“Well, how did the painting go?" he
Inquired when hu came home the fot
lowing evening. "I needn't ask
though," he added, after a look at her
fuee,
"I wish you’d come upstairs amt
look at It," said Ids wife with a sol
id her voice. "I can't make It out
They must have given me bud palm
It won't color at all."
"Won't color?"
“Not a particle except now and then
It Just sort of smears. And basn i
It a peculiar <Mlor? t>oes all palm
smell like that?"
“It does smell painty." said Jan
dlvere, ns he went upstairs. "Why
you haven’t mixed your [mini, hnv
you?" he continued as he looked u|ion
the glistening woodwork.
"Mixed ll? Why, It's supposed to l
already mixed."
"Yes. but yon have lo stir It. you
know. The [mint settles to the |mi
tom and leaves Just the oil on top
See here."
He knelt down and stirred the mix
litre so energetically Hist he splashed
some of II on his wife’s silk wnlsi
She cried oql in horror:
"I told you youil gel splashed," lie
said. "Why didn't you pul on some
thing sensible?"
“I did," she said. Indignantly "I
wore sn old gray short skirt and a
dressing Jacket I'd put In the rag bag
and never got a drop on them. But
look at you) Your* kneeling In a 111
(le puddle of It yourself. And youi
nice new suit I"
The point defiled garments were put
off anil laid aside to go to the elen
er's and Hie Jsndlveres went down to
dinner. There were [teas with the
lamb chops the canoed article. Jan
dlvere was food of [less urdl (tartly,
hut at the first mouthful he laid down
Ids fork and s spasm of disgust
crossed his face.
“They taste of palnL" be said.
"Nonsense! It's your Imagination
Well, they do. don't they? Now, what I
do you suppose?"
"1 know what. It was the can
opener. I n|>ened the paint can with
that and I forgot to speak to her about
11. That's Just what It Is."
Thr next evening Mrs Jaudlvere j
had to report a large blister In the
palm of her right hand and that the ’
paint didn't seem to cover the old
woodwork, which was cherry, except
where It was put oh so thick H st It I
ran nil over the floor. Jaudlvere went
up lo look at It.
"That’s so." be said. "Touil ban
tu pul on two or three Costa."
“1 don’t believe | can," said ifw
lady, tearfully. "And It doesn't look
at smooth and glossy as It did on thr |
card, either.”
'Well. 11l gel a man to—Hello!
You've splashed the wall-paper, I aeel”
“1 couldn’t help It." said Mrs. Jan
dlvere. “The brush Just would splat
ter. Well, we rather needed a new
paper, anyway, didn't we, dear?"
Jaudlvere surveyed the prospect In (
gloomy Hllcnce, with his hands In his
[lockets. Then he left the room ami
no further allusion was wade lo (he -
[mint Hint evening.
The next night, however. Jaudlvere |
entered the library before the gns wo
lighted, sal down lo a malachite green
wicker chair, Mrs. Jsndlvere explained
that her bliater hud pnlned her so
much she had done nothing more In
the room, lint had compromised on dec
orating the chair, whieh she intended
as a surprise.
"It was a surprise.” conceded Jan
dlvere, sarcastically. Then he added
In tones of wrath, “Where is thin
paint?"
He ran upstairs to the spore room \
three steps at a time, before his wife
could answer. He found the (mint
ills foot came Into contact with the
can before he was aware of It and
malachite green was added to the col
ors In the Daghestan rug.
That was the last thing the paint
touched, however, until II got to the
ash can In the alley. But Mrs. Jan
dlvere maintains that she would have
mode a success of the decorating ll
her husband bed not luieiierred with
her.
