JUDICIOUS TREE MOVING AND THE BARREN SUBURB Defect* of Nature Corrected by Care ful Buainoa* Men. _ In tbe promiscuous development of laud for use us Home sites many bluu ders have been made, but none perhaps has as seriously affected some places which have fallen to the lot of "im provers” In the periphery of the city us has the lack of Judgment In the treatment of trees found ou the place. As a rule, the careful developer of laud will follow the lines laid down by nature as closely us possible unless It necessitates an undue expenditure, hut the majority, who see In their land nothing but the money that cun be got out of It by cutting It up Into building lots, give majestic trees and their use fulness In landscape effects no thought otuer than that they will mean on ex pense to cut down. it Is here that a damage Is done which years could not repair were it not for the fact that through experi ence after considerable experimenting It Is possible to transplant many va rieties of trees, some as old as u cen tury. Because of the advance made by landscape artists many mistakes of this nature have been possible of cor rection. and it Is likely that none would have occurred If the slightest consid eration bad been given to the fact that a tree and even puny shrubbery are mure often than not the means of adding to tbe value of a suburban property. Jt Is possible that tbe vandalism, for arch might be termed the unnecessary destruction of plant life, has occurred principally among those having no ex perience with the country, who saw no j-v .■ / /ODICU)CBI.Y LAII om (IHUONKH value In trees, when the plans tor the building site development were ordered and had them removed because they stood In the way of staking out a s.‘>o or SIOO lot. Acres of such places, after passing through the bauds of speculators. tq>- erafors, and then dually reaching the producer, for such is the proper term for the developer, have been made at tractive home places by the simple process of planting young and old trees, shrubs, and a little application of landscape art. MAKING CHILDREN BEHAVE. Society Formed In New York to Stop Playing In Streets. A society has been started In New York the object of which Is to form the city children Into an urgMni7.a I ion pledged to avoid playing In the streets and to encourage them by giving badges for good behavior and adher ence to tire rules. The rules of the society, to which all members must agree, are: To use the nearest playground; not to play bull or othergames In which missiles are thrown on the streets: to refrain from hitching on to vehicles and from Jumping off or on street cars; not to throw stones at automo biles. cars or wagons: to cross the streets only by crosswalks; to help to keep the streets clean: to refrain from throwing paper or refuse or building bonfire* on tbe streets. These pledges must be signed by tbe child and countersigned by the par ents. After three months the child, if be has obeyed tbe rules, will be given a badge, and special badges will be awarded for good conduct. Troo Posts Nearly Exterminated. Tbe condition of the trees of the Dls *rlct of Columbia and the absence of Insects In them will probably be the feature of the annual report of True man Lanhum. superintendent of trees and parkings, to he submitted to the district commissioners soon. There are nearly 100.000 frees In tbe district said to be freer of Insects, such as cater pillars, elm beetles and tussock moths, than for twenty-five vears. It Is believed a substantial decrease In the cost of operation will lie shown. It 1s said that no more silver leaf maple trees are to be planted by the-depart ment. The extreme brittleness of that species of tree Is responsible for the damage to trees during storms. At present there are 15,000 silver leaf maples In the District. About one third of the trees planted during the past year were Norway maples, but red oak will probably be the moat used during the coming year. Bends For Playgrounds.

I “The Isolation of the desert lowlands of Lower California, combined with alternations of long continued droughts and heavy rulus, has resulted in the development of the richest and most extraordinary desert flora In the world,” says E. W. Nelson in the Na tional Geographic Muguzlue. "Cactuses of mauy kinds abound, varying from giants standing with massive fluted trunks fifty to sixty feet tall to little struggling stemmed species too weak to bold themselves upright The fruit of many of these cactuses is edible and much sought for by birds and mammals. They were once one of the main crops of tbe In dians who lived In this arid region. Tbe cactus forests often form thorny Jungles through which it is impossible to pass. "After months among these thorny plants we supposed we bad seen them In all their eccentric variations of forms. One morning, however, while crossing ihe Llano de Yrals, in front of Magdalena bay. I rode out from a dense growth of bushes into an open area and pulled up my horse in amaze ment ut sight of the most extraordl dluary of them all. Before me was a great bod of the creeping devil cactus, which appeared like a swarm of gigan tic caterpillars creeping in all direc tions. These plants actually travel away from the common center of the group, and 1 saw many single sections twenty or thirty yards away from the others. The part of the stem resting on the ground sends down rootlets, and the older stems die in the rear at about the same rate as they grow In front, so they slowly move away from the colony across the flats where they live.” A SECRET LIBRARY. Important Paper* That Were Stored Away by Queen Victoria. Within the walls of Buckingham pal ace and constructed on the "strong room” principle is a room known as tbe “secret library,” and in this are stored documents and private letters which were they sent forth to the world would doubtless set the whole universe talking. From the very commencement of her reign Queen Victoria assiduously stored away in nice order all family and other Important papers, her only assistant in this duty being a secre tary. who entered her service within fourteen years of her accession to the throne and who retained his place un til her majesty's death, though he him self hud no access to nine-tenths of (he papers which are docketed, the late queen alone retaining the keys of the safes and cabinets in which her "secret library” wus contained. Just before her death her majesty added to the list of her papers a batch of letters of the most private and con fidential kind, addressed by tbe late prince consort to his brother, the Duke Ertjysl of Coburg, and It Is a well as certained fact that when possible she acquired every scrap written by her late consort to his private friends. It is said by those who are qualified to surmise that the "secret library” not only tells of royal marriages, births ami deaths, hut that It is virtually the private history of Europe during tbe last half of the nineteenth century.— Loudon Tit-Bits. European Civilization. The first pavements In Parts were .laid about tbe year 1200; lu Loudon, about 1417. Berlin was without pave ments far into the seventeenth cen tury. No houses had glass windows before the twelfth century, and as late as the fourteenth century anything might be thrown out of the wludowe of Paris and Loudon after three times calling out, "Look outl” Shirts were not known until the time of the cru sailers, and tbe fine clothes which la dies and gentlemen wore were seldom washed, but only occasionally "scent ed." So late as 1550 there were to be found In Paris but three carriages, while in England coaches date from 1580. Forks were unknown, and table manners were exceedingly "unsightly.” Occupation of Idols. Some strange occupations figure on Indian census schedules. At tbe last census in many villages of Haidarabad and tbe central provinces enthusiastic and devout enumerators returned tbe village shrines and temples as "occu pied bouses," The occupant was the idol, whose occupation was stated as “granting boons and blessings, living on contributions from the tenants.” Other callings returned on the sched ules Include collectors of edible birds’ nests, receivers of stolen goods, witches, wizards and cow poisoners.— Pall Mall Gazette.

With Which He Bombards th* Women Folks and Shows Them th* Foolish nee* of Spending Time and Far* to Shop In tho City. At last that bugaboo of tbe local merchant, the mall order bouse. Is meeting brisk competition from the home tradesman, and with mail order methods at that, says James Kells in the Chicago Tribune. Just ns the Japanese lowered the pride of Russia by using tbe white man’s Implements of warfare, so the small town storekeeper, who has felt himself downtrodden # tbe postal magnates of the big centers, has adopted tbe usages of his enemy and is beginning to “cut in.” Catalogues, “Paris fashion” posters, “follow up” letters and price lists, nil the pet weapons of the big mall order bouses by which they command ruml trade, have been seized by merchants to keep tbe money of the countryside at home. The rural free delivery mall routes are now being burdened with the literature of nearby mercantile firms, which clash effectively with gaudy pamphlet outputs of the big city “plants.” “Intensive retailing” is one of the names coined to describe the new sys tem. In results it is claimed that It will beat Intensive farming. Certainly the field is as yet raw. and if the in ventors have read the American house wife rightly the reaping will be abun dant. For example, we’ll say that J. B. Belters is proprietor of the Beehive department store in Jokopoiis. la. Far from being n beehive, his establish ment has more resembled a deserted grotto or a cave of the winds. Mall order competition has cut heavily Into bis business. His former customers have been assailed by booklets filled with pretty pictures, tempting price figures and “selling arguments.” which are ns the song of the Lorelei against his own circulars, crudely printed and crudely composed. The building of the Intenirban trolley helped him some, enabling farmers’ wives to get into town and within reach of Ids attractive displays of “re*! goods.” But Ihe thrall of the pretty pictures Is over them; also the Idea of getting their garments direct from the big city. In turn the wholesaler in the metropolis feels the decline of sales In the Beehive. This Is the natural effect, which pinches early. But now the wholesaler, like a husky big brother, comes to the rescue of Mr. Sellers.and by the same blow resuscitates his own total of profits. The wholesaler, with money at his command and lu close touch with tbe heart of things, Is lu a position to buy talent and bruins. This he does, and soon the machinery’ which Is to ac complish the checking of mall order competitors Is In morion. A procession of catalogues, posters, order blanks, “typewritten’’ letters and “follow up” communications be gins to flow toward tbe clientele of Mr. Sellers in Jokopoiis. Every one of his former customers, as well as prospective ones, receives a brand new consignment of merchandizing “litera ture. ” This literature is even more attrac dve than any that has come before. At first the curious housewife Is under the impression that "Shother big mall order firm has obtained her name for its list. Imagine her amazement when she observes that ou the first page of the colored catalogue, right under the New port girl and her bunch of orchids, are the insignia of the Beehive department store. Jokopoiis. She Is startled again when she receives a typewritten letter, addressed in her own name, inviting her to examine the stock of Chicago made garments now on display at the Beehive. It is nil personal, and the word “you" is underlined. Perhaps she puts off her visit to the Beehive through press of household duties. With a Jolt she is reminded of her duty to herself and to the fashion able ensemble of the community by a second typewritten missive, which ex presses deepest disappointment that she has not called and urges her, above all things, to be sure to pay her visit at the earliest possible moment. Be fore she has time to pin ou her hat an other envelope arrives containing "pic ture samples” of fall suitings obtain able at the Beehive. On her way to town on the car she picks up a news paper and there notices a Beehive ad vertisement. But It differs from the usual dull announcement in thick, inky type. An attractive “girl" picture takes up most of the space, and the announcement is couched lu skillful, city department store English. And that Is the way Mr. Sellers sue-' ceeds in stirring up trade among the strongest adherents to mall order goods In his district. The catalogues and circulars he secures in big ship ments from bis wholesalers. Before these are sent from headquarters the address of the Beehive la printed on every one of them. Advertising “cuts" tor newspapers and even lantern slides for moving picture theaters are sup plied by tbe "big brother" in the city. ANCIENT ARITHMETIC. Problems Schoolboy* Hed to Solve Thlrty-eix Conturie* Ago. There lea ray of vindictive comfort for tbe modern schoolboy in tbe fact that for over 3.000 years his schoolboy progenitors have beeu worried by just ■ueb problems in arithmetic as annoy him most ' Among tbe archaeological discoveries made in Egypt is a papyrus roll, in excellent condition, dating from about 1700 B. C. This roll, which had a long heading beginning. . "Directions bow lu attain the knowledge of all dark things," proves beyond doubt that tbe Egyptians of that time bad a thorough knowledge of tbe elements of arithmetic. Numerous examples show that their principal operations with units and fractions were made by means of ad dition and multiplication. Subtrac tion and division were not known in their present form, but correct results were obtained nevertheless. Equations are also found in tbe papy rus. Here is one that brings tbe Egyp tian schoolboy home to us; Ten measures of barley are to be di vided among ten persons in such man ner that each subsequent person shall receive one-eighth less than tbe one before him. Another example given is: There are seven men; each one has seven cats; each cat has eaten seven mice; each mouse has eaten Seven grains of bar ley; each grain of barley would have yielded seven measures of barley. How much barley has beeu lost? Tbe papyrus also contains tbe ealeu lation of the urea of a circle, attempts to square the circle and finally calcula tions of tbe cubic meusuremeuts of pyramids.—New York Trlbuue. ENLIVENED THE SCENE. But Hera’s Improvisation Did Not Holp Leender Much. Innumerable are the tales of actors (U difficulties. Here is one related of Christian Braudes, the dramatist, who In bis youth belonged to a strolling company which played pieces of an extremely primitive kind. On one occasion the play was eutl tied "Hero and Leander," the dialogue being left pretty much to the discre tion of the players. It had beeu agreed, however, that Hero was to be coy and not confess her love for Lean der till he hud again and again ex pressed bis readiness to be bunged, burned and drowned lu her behalf. But the lady was soft hearted, besides being exceedingly fond of Braudes, nor could she listen unmoved to the first passionate pleadings of the youth; who explained that he had swum across the Hellespont to see her. “My dear Leander." she exclaimed, "I can not resist you. Accept my baud and my heart.” Leander knew not what to say. All his prepared phrases were useless. Tbe manager came to his aid with a loud whisper addressed (p Hero, "In the fiend’s name, improvise a few words and retire!"

A Rossini Joke. Rossini promised a place lu tbe opera orchestra to a trombonist and then forgot about It. says the Musical Courier. At one of his dinner parties the butler announced the visit of this same protege. Rossini hastened to wel come him and, relieving him of hta in strument, disappeared a few moments, to return with bis friend. Handing the Instrument to the trombonist with a re quest to let the company hear him, Rossini prepared to listen. Trombone to lips, the musician rose—dismay, no sound, cheeks bulging, eyes distended. In vain tbe unhappy man makes super human efforts to produce harmonious sounds. At last! Oh, effort supreme: With a sound like a hoarse goose cackle there shoots from the trombone a mass of sticky macaroni. “No harm, my friend," said Rossini; “you have proved yourself a strong musician." And.the next day the coveted position was offered to the trombonist—Boston Transcript Sunlight and Germs.

CIVIC CLUB FOUNTAINS ADD TO CITY’S BEAUTY. Attractiveness Combined With Useful* ness Uf Gift to Johnstown, Pa. Distinctly novel and attractive In de sign and a marked addition to the city beautiful, as well as being a boon to the horses of the city, the four drink ing fountains recently ordered by the Cambria County Civic club have been received and placed and are now in service lu Johnstown, Pa. The picture la of the fountain on Railroad street. All are donated to the city through the Civic club, but one of them is erected to the memory of the lute Andrew Foster by Mrs. Barbara Foster, his widow. The others were purchased by the club. The fountains were designed and made in the studios of the Fonullgl ONE OF JOHNSTOWN'S NEW FOUNTAINS. company of Wilkesbarre and are of special construction for Johnstown be cause of the narrow streets and side walks. Each fountain is about thirty inches in width by four feet In length, oval in shape and of concrete in orna mental design. Four bronze turtles resting on a small base support the fountains, the whole standing about three feet from the ground. Water Is supplied through a lion’s head, there being an automatic shut-off valve to regulate the amount of water In the basin. INCOMPETENCY—FAILURE. Brain* Ar* a* Necessary In a Small Store as Anywhere Else. Are there too many small merchants? There are If you count in the incom petent ones who start In without the requisite knowledge for success or the capital to carry them through. Re gardless of what merit may be in the field they occupy, whether there is population sufficient to support another store or not, they start in, pay for what goods they can and always find some ambitious wholesaler who is anxious to extend credit. What is the result? Their incompetency and lack of business training lead them into cutting prices below the safety mark. Their stocks are poorly assorted. They perhaps unwisely extend credits and. instead of properly marking goods so as to bring In a good percentage of profits, charge exorbitantly for one thing and too little for something else. Customers become dissatisfied. Some turn their patronage to the mail order houses, others to the nearest large city. In the grocery line It can be seen by any careful observer that the uumber of stores is fully a third greater than they should be lu the average town. Where there are too many stores only the well managed ones win and the others fall. In busi ness It is the survival of the fittest as well as elsewhere. BEAUTIFYING THE CITY. Wonderful Results From Contest In San Antonio, Tsx, A most Interesting contest In city beautification has come to a close with the decision of a committee as to who were the winners in a beautiful yard contest, conducted by the Real Estate Exchange of San Antonio, Tex. More than 100 residents entered this contest, some entering the front yard, some the back yard and others the entire premises. As soon ns the an nouncement was made that prizes would be offered for the best kept lawn much Interest was manifested lu the , work. Many who were not regu- entered caught the spirit of im provement, and the result is there has been an effort all over the city to beautify home surroundings. No civic Improvement work ever un dertaken in San Antonio has attracted such general attention and been of more actual benefit. Duluth Puts Up Crossing Sign*.
