N«w Tort) tree effect to small grounds, and only those who have tried them know how highly decora tive and artistic silver birches are in either a iav.-n or garden. LOW HEDGES BORDERING A WIDE PATH HAVE A SIMILAR EFFECT. Shade and beauty are often achieved by build ing an extension out from a wail trellis and covering this irttn creepers. If different sorts of vines are planted, one variety will always be in flower and so contribute color and p» as well as shade. Beneath such extensions rus tic s^ats and tables may be placed, and all the enjoyment obtained which a shady tree, could offer In a space too small to accommodate it_ The arrangement of a miniature Japan*'?" f aquatic garden in a small yard affords unfail ing delight to children, for whom water has a wonderful attraction. Tiny castles are .^-applied with these little artificial lakes, and a few gold- Bill may always be had to delight the little ones with their motions in the water. The little castle appears nothing more than an artistic ar rangement of stucco and pebbles to grown per sons, but children soon people it with fairies, ogres, elves and gnomes, au-cording to the latest tales they have listened to, and the little creat ures of their fancy pass in and out the pebble portals and sail upon the lake in the tub. pro polled in boats of paper or rose petals and guided by childish fingers. Such a miniature lake admits of charming groups of semi-aquatic plants, and nothing love lier can be imagined than a collection made up of common Iris, cattails, buffalo grass, bamboo and some large leafed plant, such as the ele phant ear or castor bean. The latt.T also makes a strikingly handsome decorative plant for the centre of a Bower circle, for it grows to a of aeven feet or mure, with a spread of eight fee* and a crown of lovely scarlet flowers, to say nothing of one of the handsomest I saves known to foliage.
