Within the next three weeks four-fifths of the residents of Fairmont street be tween 11th and 14th streets will have subscribed to a plan of the People's Gar den Association for front lawn Ifcautlfica tlon, was a prediction made last night at ' a meeting1 held under the auspices of the Columbia Heights Citizens' Association at the Fourth Presbyterian Church to further the project. The cost to the resi dents is $.1 per annum, the association undertaking the planting and tare of all flowers and shrubbery. David Fairchild, president of the peo ple's Garden Association, gave an illus trated talk on yard beautiflcatlon. and Arthur Smith, gardener of the associa tion, told how to plant and rare for flowers and decorative shrubljery, which thrive in this section. Other speakers were Judge Charles S. Bundy, president of the Columbia Heights Citizens" Asso ciation. and Arthur T. Ramsay, principal of the Fairmont Seminary. Messrs. Bundy and Ramsay are taking an active part in the campaign to further the association's* objects. The Plan of the Association. During Mr. Fairchild's lecture he told of the association's plan for the planting and arrangement of the decorative plants on the street. The idea, he says, is first to map out the most attractive scheme for the individual yards, and ; then plant the flowers and shrubbery, the selections of variety being made with the idea of having some particular plant in bloom all the time. As the blossoms of one flower disappear for the season, blossoms of others will succeed it. the purpose lielng to keep the lawn a mass of blooming flowers from the first wa, m days of spring until the fall frosts. 1 lie larger number of subscribers to the i'lea will make, he assured his audience, the expense comparatively small. well within the $a named by the soliciting committee. The proposed decorative scheme, he said, would have to be model ed In a general way after the English cottage idea of flower planting. Selection of Fairmont Street. "The more you scold people the less j likely you are to bring them to your way of thinking." said Mr. Fairchild, and. obviously, it is not my purpose to scold, but I cannot help but deplore the great lack of attention that is manifest in at least HO per cent of the front yards in the thrifty sections of Washington. Judging from the appearance of the hun dreds, of struggling lawns and the few scattered, neglected flowers some of tticm displav. Washington is in a deplorable condition from the standpoint of flower decoration. One of the reasons for in augurating this scheme on Fairmont street is eventually to point it out as an object lesson, with the hope that ; others who see it will follow with alac- | ritv and enthusiasm." j In introducing Mr. Fairchild Jud"gR Bundv made an earnest plea for tlie unanimous co-operation of the Fairmont street residents to take up the idea, it should be done not only from the stand point of civic pride, but as a business proposition, stiid .fudge Bundy. Me predicted that if every resident ?>f the street from 11th and 14th agreed to allow the association to beautify lus front lawn in three years' time the value of properties there would increase from 25 to ?> per cent over their present values. . , Mr. Ramsey told the audience he had become interested in front lawn beauti flcation through the medium of Mr Fair child about a year ago- He said he was enthusiastically in favor of any move ment that would beautify 'the city and Fairmont street particularly. Hp prom ised that the lawn of the Fairmont Sem inary would be the first on the street to receive the professional attention or Messrs. Fairchild and Smith. SPEAKS BY SIGNS.

The business interests among the read ers of our next Sunday Magazine will enjoy and be instructed in reading of "The Great American Tin Can." by George Ethelbert Walsh. To illustrate the entertaining part of the acticle, Mr. Walsh says: "There is a mansion built just off T.th avenue. New York, that might appro priately be called a 'Tin Can House'; not because it is made of tin cans, but be cause its owner and builder made his fortune in collecting tin cans. When other people despised tin cans and threw them to billy goats, this man gathered them up, flattened them out and repaired roofs with them. Then he discovered another use for them, and by the time he had a factory established for recov ering the scrap tin he had 100 scavengers from sunny Italy picking and buying tin cans for him. Today this well organized force of collectors numbers nearly ?><iu, and the goat that can find a stray can that has escaped the Argus-eyed force of the tin can merchant must be abroad bright and early in the day." c M IZ 1 iDSlsry 1 Sale. ?? ? ? :: :: ?? ?? ?ttt LOUVRE. 1115-17 F Street. 1 Necked!j Sale. 1 ?? ?? ?? ?? :: ?
