Tow BETTER HOUSING CALLED FOR Community Can Not Ba Made At tractive Without tha Co-operation of th* Builder. "The bousing problem ls one of the most important aspects of home de? velopment and good homes are the it ystone of the whole social arch," ?writes Edward T. Hartman, secretary of the Massachusetts Civic League, In the annual report of that organization. Mr. Hartman discusses the housing problem in towns, and says in part: "I want particularly to mention three aspects of tbe housing problem: the aesthetic, the social and the eco? nomic. For many years we have had In Massachusetts a succession of short-lived organizations developed to Improve the appearance of towns. They have In the main died because their aim was superficial. Beauty cannot easily be engrafted upon rot tcnm*ts. People are beginning to see that in a town in which every house Js of good design and In which main? tenance work ls carefully looked aft? er, there are those elements of art ?which when combined make for a beautiful community. "The social aspects of the housing problem are enough, lt seems to nw. to cause every one of us to re-esti? mate the values of the Items covered In our efforts for social advance Had homes are responsible for a large per? centage of the Immorality which the churches are trying to cure; they are responsible for a large part of the ?sickness the hospitals, dispensaries arid nurses aro trying to cure, and di? rectly or through Immorality or sick? ness they ure responsible for much of the poverty the charities are trying to cure. "The economic aspects of the hous? ing problem are serious. Towns get. as a rule, that for which they bid. That ls. if force of circumstances brings a large number of people te) a town, the quality of these people will depend In large measure on the kind of homes which are offered them. If the people have to content themselves with the abandoned dwellings, out? buildings and similar Inferior homes. they will be of an Inferior type of peo? ple, because self-respecting people will not live in such homes. "Hut when the people coming into a town are offered attractive homes on well planned streets Felf-respeet Ing people will come, they will In? crease the taxable value of the town, they will pay their way through the schools, the streets and elsewhere, and they will decrease the per cap? ita demand for all the remedial Insti? tutions. "It ls not enough to develop good homes. They must b*a maintained In a good condition. There ls therefore t call for an active local healthy au? thority. To meet Its conditions and needs every town must have a good law, the efficient enforcement of ?which will give the town what lt needs In the way of houses, and it must have an active board of health that will see that houses are always kept clean and sanitary." To Beautify Vacant Lots. Vacant lots will prove more valu teble from a viewpoint of attractive? ness if nothing else is the Idea of a manager of a San Bernardino (Cal.) Insurance, loan and land company, who is making arrangements to set Dut thousands of deciduous fruit trees on the lots owned by the company, lu various parts of the city. These lots are at present barren in many respects, and through the plant? ing of the fruit trees the appearance cf the lot will be very much Improved. Not only that, but lt is figured tbat it will be more attractive to the buyer, end the results to buyer and company alike will be much greater. It is the plan of the company to set the trees out and to have a competent horticulturist to care for them while they arc adapting themselves to the soil In which they are planted. From ten to twelve or more fruit trees will be planted on each lot. Busiest Hen In the Country. While it is not possible to state thea exact average production of eggs per hen In one year it is conservatively estimated in the 1'nited States to be about seventy. By improved methods of breeding, feeding and selection birds have been found with actual In? dividual records of 200 to 257 eggs a year. Only one hen has been found at Cor? nell that laid as high as 257 eggs in a year, but this one example of the de? gree of perfection to which the breed? ers' art has attained ls valuaBle for the pace it sets for others to follow and surpass. Tho net profit obtained from the Bale of these 257 eggs amounted to $5.06.?Christian Herald. Rapid Growth of White Pins.

BREEDING THE SHIRE HORSE Character, Symmetry, Style, Constitu? tion, Soundness and Type of Mars Are of Importance. Tbe first thing a farmer must try to get ls a mars or two of Just the right sort to begin with. The age to buy is uot of so "much Importance; by buying Allies at one or two years old, they have the full length of their breeding life before them, but at the same time there is the risk of their proving non-breeders, or inferior breeders, while by buying a mare that Horses Always In Demand. has bred a foal or two successfully we discount the risk, but have to pay a higher price, and lose as much of her life as has passed. The mare that has begun to breed ls the safest spec? ulation. In sele**ctlng the brood-m*.r^ *.>?.** character, symmetry, style, constitu? tion, soundness and type are of even greater importance than pedigree. It ls well to have a type of perfection In one's eye and to get as near that as possible. The head and eyes should betoken docility. Intelligence and courage, lt ls only by close observation that any one can acquire the art of recognis? ing character In a mare. No amount of descriptive writing can teach one how to judge these characteristics In horse or man. The loin, of course, should be strong, and the tall well set up, in line' with the back, not droop? ing. In a brood-mare a strong, healthy constitution is of the utmost importance. As for size, a mare standing 16 hands high, and built in proportion, ls big enough. Color may be selected according to taste, but a brown or bay colored animal ls always more salable than a black or any ot the lighter colors. When buying, every precaution should be taken to insure soundness? that ls, absence of all hereditary dis? ease, and a few dollars extra should not prevent a bargain being made if the mare approaches anywhere near the ideal above described. SANITARY TROUGH FOR HOGS One* Constructed In Such Manner That Animal Cannot Get Its Feet In or Crowd Others. This plan of a bog trough which the bog cannot put his feet into, away from which he cannot crowd the other hogs, and which ls protect? ed from the sun and rain, ls sent to the Progressive Farmer by Felix Ever Sanitary Hog Trough. sole of Tullahoma, Tenn. It can he made any size desired, and of such lumber as may be handy. If ends are made long, lt cannot be turned over. Looks to us like a good idea. Raising Horses. Men who are raising scrub horses and using grade sires of any breed are very foolish. Plug horses and those which fit nowhere may sell low in the future, but horses that have a trade will sell high. Any sound Baddie horse or any light harness horse or big draft horse or coach horse, any good chunk, any stylish Southern horse, any ex? press horse and, we might say, any cavalry horse, will Bell well, while the unclassified horse will grade at the tail end and sell for the plug that he ls. Cure for Stumbling. If a horse stumbles, give him his food on the floor, instead of in the manger. The position necessarily taken In feeding strengthens the muscles of the knees, and so removes the cause of the stumbling. A horse just brought from pasture does not stumble. Pasture for Horses, Have plenty of pasture for the brood mares and colts. If the mares work during the week, let them grate on Sundays. Pasture is a cheap feed for ' all cl., ssos of stock, but don't pas? ture too closely. LEGEND OF MONUMENT HOW THE TALL MARBLE SHAFT IS GAINING HISTORY. Something Happening About lt ever/ Year to Draw Attention?Instances of Anecdotes Piling Up as Ad? juncts to Its History. When Thomas S. Purcell, the build? er of the Washington monument, a 555-foot o b e I Isk, which dominates the buildings at the capital, died a few days ago, the remin i s c e n c e s which cling about the marble shaft were recalled to mind. Purcell was eighty-eight years old and had spent the "greater part of his life in su? perintending tbe building of stone edifices. Kvery year or two the monument does something to draw attention to lt. For Instance, a freak story was circulated about the shaft a year ago to the effect that Its material was rot? ting. This libel gained the most ex? tensive credence. Stories were printed by practically every newspaper In the country and photographs of decaying blocks were shown. It was claimed by some geologist that the poor qual? ity of material with which the walls of the monument are filled was going to bring about the destruction of the building. He claimed that this filler was rotting and causing the der--*_?*? " - the outer walls. He went so far as to |K>int out the decayed places. There waa a vnBt deal of newspaper talk about the matter, but after a while the story was forgotten, laid on the shelf with all the other freak tales. The monument still stands. Then when Charlie Street, a base? ball player, wanted to prove how clev? er he was on catchtng the emblem of his profession he picked out the Wash? ington monument as the proper struc? ture to immortalize his achievement. Street sent a confederate to the top of the monument and had him toss a baseball out one of the windows 500 feet In the air. lie caught the ball and the old monument again enjoyed a short season of publicity. At a still remoter period somebody chose the Washington monument as the only proper medium to test tbe truth of the saying that a cat has nine lives. A feline In the prime of life was selected for tho test, taken to tho top of the shaft and dropped from one of the windows. The cat followed the lines of the structure all the way to the ground. On alighting lt got to its feet, walked a few steps and laid down and expired. Its back was brok? en. These are instances of what sort of anecdote the Washington monument ls piling, up aa adjuncts to the story ot its life, and there are older stories which are nearly ancient enough to be labeled legends. The obelisk Itself was built In two sections. A historical society built the first part and then ran out ot funds. Work stopped for a long time, and then the government appropriated money for the completion of the shaft. From the inside may be seen blocks of all shapes and sixes bearing inscrip? tions In all languages, the gifts of for? eign nations, organizations and in? dividuals. One of these, about which elinga an interesting tale, wats donated by the pope of Rome and later lost. This was a tremendous block weighing a ton or more which was to have been inserted In a very prominent place. The stone was posed there for some time. What became of lt is a mystery. The pope sent no other block. Statesmen Swap Clothes. Representative Timothy Ansberry, a Democratic member from Ohio, ap? peared on the floor of the house to? day wearing the "loudest" suit of clothes ever seen In the halls of con? gress. It had as many colors as Jo? seph's coat, and tbe checks and stripes added to Its festive appear? ance. "Where did you get lt?" asked Rep? resentative William Hughes, another Democrat of New Jersey. "In Relgium, last summer," replied Mr. Ansberry. "I'll trade you. I rn going to the races," said Mr. Hughes. "Come on," said the Ohioan. A few minutes later they emerged from a nearby committee room, "Mr. Hughes arrayed In many colors aud Mr. Ansberry in the sombre gray that had adorned the form of the New Jer? sey member. Mr. Hughes led his colleague away for the Pimlico race track. Another Bachelor on List. -Lieutenant Colonel Yarde-Huller, re? cently appointed to succeed Colonel Mclachlan as military attache of the British embassy, will be another bach? elor added to the list of eligibles in the corps, now headed by his col? league, Captain Sowerby, naval at? tache. Another change to be made In the diplomatic circle in Washington is the promotion of Masano Hanihara of the Japanese embassy staff, who has recently been appointed to an im? portant post in the Japanese foreign office, after having served his govern? ment as third, second and first secre? tary, consecutively, and often in tbe absence of the ambassador, as charge d'affairs at Washington.
