SOT ALWAYS BEHIND EUROPE ?
Many of America's Oig Gent?r3 of
Population Take the Lead in
New York City alone secure a
larger revenue from laud values than
do the much-heralded "'unearned in
crement" taxes of all the cicies of
Germany and all the taxes of the revo
lutionary Lloyd George budget of
1909 combined. The total collections
of New York City from this source
amount to approximately $60.000,000
a year. I think lt may fairly be ?
claimed that we have made more
progress in local taxation than have
any cities in the world.
lt must be remembered, too, that
many activities of the American city
are eff.ciencly performed. Our lib
rary systems are models. In this we
have been pioneers. The rapid de
velopment of public and privat?
libraries, the extension of branches,
the opening of reading rooms and li
brary centers, the use of pictures and
children's departments show the pos
sibilities of our municipal democracy
-when the laws ot* the state permit
it to grow as it will.
Commissions come to America to
study our library methods just as
commissions go from this coi "try to
Europe to study fcqeir municipal
achievements. The park systems of
our cities are of the same high order.
Our development In recent years has
been phenomen-al. Not only are our
parks generous in area, but they have
been laid out by experts in a far
sighted way. The Boston system is
said to be the most comprehensive of ;
any in the world, while thoso of Chi- j
cago, Cleveland, Philadelphia, Baltl- j
more, Washington. Kansas City, Deu- j
ver, and a score of lesser cities cora- j
pare favorably with those of any j
cities cf Europe.
America, too, led the way in play- j
ground development, as well as lu the j
wider use of the schoolhouse and the ]
social center. The exhibits of the;
American city in these activities at !
the Berlin Town Planning exposition I
were accepted as in advance of those
From the very beginning our fire j
departments have been honestly and
efficiently administered. These, too, j
have been models for foreign cities.
For the most part, they have been |
free from the spoils system. Merit1
has be*n recognized in the selection I
o: chiefs. Now appliances have been ;
rapidily introduced and an esprit de !
corps has been created like that of J
the army and the navy.-F. C. Howe j
in Scribner's Magazine.
WITH AN EYE TO THE FUTURE
Manner of Laying Out thc Streets of
a NAW Town Should Be Most
For outlying districts, narrow, wind
ing, or diagonal streets make it pos
sible to spend more on the sanitation
of the hornes, declares a man who
has made a study of city planning.
Where traffic of the future promises I
to be dense and a wide street may at
BOme time be wise, in tho intervening
years a narrow paved area, bordered !
by grass and trees, is good economy, j
good sense, and good health.
As between rectangular streets ex- 1
elusively and a combination in which i
some of the streets are diagonal and
some rectangular. Robinson says
aesthetics, sanitation, and convent- j
euee all favor the latter.
In Vienna the crowds are handled
With less inconvenience than in any I
other city, and there the cars come j
in on diagonal streets to the Rig- j
Strasse, which they follow around to
deliver their passenger.; as near as 1
possible to their destinations.
p.crinson says: "The two diagoua!
streets, Broadway and thy Bowery,
In New York saved for the city
breathing spots like Madison and
Union squares-space out ot reach if
condemnation had been required."
Utilization of Vacant Lots.
For several years the City Beautiful
page has advocated the use and beau
tification of vacant city lots, calling at
tention to the success attained in
eastern cities through the work of Va- j
? cant Lot associations, etc. The prob
lem now seems near to sotutiou. The '
j various schools of the city have ex
tended their school garden work to
near-by unused property, and tf this
movement does net culminate in the
appropriation of all vacant lots it will
at least call attention to the impor
tance qi control of one of our great
est eyesores-numberless weed-grown,
rubish-strewn vacant lots.-Los An
Weeds In thc Walks,
For weeds in pavements or gravel
walks, make a strong brine of coarse
salt and boiling water, put tho brine in
a sprinkling can and water the weeda
thoroughly, being careful not to let
any of the brine get on the grass, or
,it will kill it, too.
Worth Thinking Over.
What a simple matter lt would be to
clean up the city if everybody would
do his part without depending on bis
neighbor to begin the work first! That
ls, assuming, of course, that the city
authorities would do their cart.
LITTLE TROUBLE WITH TULIPS
Thes* Beautiful Flowers ?Way Easily
Be Made as Successful Here
as in Holland.
Horticulturists visiting Holland
bring hack tales of how "Dutch bulbs"
are grown for the world In the land
reclaimed from the Zuyder Zee. The
soil is .sandy, superb In drainage and
naturaly poor, but proper handling has
made lt a rich one. After reading of
the Holland methods, the writer has
this year produced tulips that are sec
ond to none, some being more than
two feet in height and very robust with
large flowers. The method of care is
herein given In the hope ^hat some
who have given up hope may be abie
to grow these beautiful flowers to a
satisfying degree of excellence. Mauy
other lots have been visited that are I
very One, where the care and cuitar?
has been very similar to that followed
by the writer.
The two strong points In growing
good tulips are deep planting and
plenty of water. To provMe- good !
drainage fa supposed essential) the,
writer dug out a bed to the depth of
18 inches, mixing the soil with some
sand and one-fourth horse manure that
contained a large per cent of planing
mill shavings, used for bedding. This
was replaced and trodden down until
within six inches of the surface. Then
a mixture was made of one-half good
garden loam, one-fourth sand, and one
fourth pulverized sheep manure. The
soil was smoothed on the bottom of
the bed, one inch of th's special soil
placed evenly over the surface, the
tulip bulbs placed upon lt and the bal-j
ance of the special soil placed on top. I
After being wetted down it was about
six inches from the surface to bottom j
of tulip bulbs A little ridge of earth
was placed around the bed so that1
when given a liberal watering the
water could stand two locaes deep be-j
fore soaking down, which latter it did
very rapidly. Then three inches of
fresh stable manure was placed on ton
for a mulch and the bed was heavily
watered, when no rain fell, twice each
week The tulips so produced were
second to none in local gardens. They
were all singles, of the Gesneriana
type. Those in one bed inspected that
were esuec'aly fine were placed the
same depth as herein noted, in almost
pure adobe, covered with four Inches
of manure and kept well watered.
Lark of drainage did not seem to af
fect them adversely. To sum up, the
two chief points are deep planting
and heavy watering. >-*
MEW YORK SCHOOL GARDENS
Even in the Heart of the Crowded
Metropolis These Beauty Spots
Are to Be Found.
School gardens, for some years a
feature of education in smaller towns,
have ar. last tu ken root in New York.
Even in the heart of crowded Man
hattan it has been found possible to
turn a blt of the school yard into a
garden aud there to let the children
giow flowers and vegeiablet?. In some
schools each class has Its plot, in
others there was enough room to
provide a plot for each child. but
this, except in the rural outskirts, Is
rare. In one school, where it was
impossible to raise plants from the
earth, a goodly part of the cement
paved playground was given over to
boxes which afforded a home for
growing plants. There is a large so
ciety, called the School Garden as
sociation, ot which the president ia

WHO IS THE GUILTY PERSON'/
Young Men Stand Brunt of Their
Crimes While Man Who Is Most
Responsible Goea Free.
No one knows better than the men
who preside over our courts of justice
that the criminal who should be on
trial before them is, in the majority
of cases, the legalized liquor traffic.
"Every day," says Judge Pinckney of
j the Chicago Juvenile court, "there are
j cases brought before me of young
boys who have broken the law while
under the influence of liquor. They
stand the brunt of their actions, while
I the one upon whom the greater re
sponsibility should fall goes free."
And upon whom falls the responsi
bility for the legalized liquor traffic?
I Of the d.-ink-made criminal it may be
! said, as good Bishop Myriel In Hugo's
; story said of .lean Valjean. "This soul
j IB full of darkness and sin ls commit
ted, but the guilty person is not the
j man who commits the sin but he who
produces the darkness." In dealing
; with crime thea the question to be
i considered ia who roduces the dark

Thai Treatment of Saloons In That

"If a rattlesnake crossed my path."
said Rev. Joseph Twomey of Portland.
Me., iu a recent sermon, "I would not
stop to argue with it, or plan to rind
an excuse for its existence, I would
kill it at once. The saloon is a dan

over six years. I came with a preju

Professor Nichols asks this perti
nent question: "Is it common sense
to license a man to sell liquor, then
lock un another man for buying lt, aud
levy a tax on the citizen to take care
of the man who buys?" ,
He says further that across the face
of every tax receipt there should be
printed in red ink, "The liquor traffio

Cause of Wealth.
The last census shows that Kansas
ls the second richest Btate in the
Union, and that while the per capita
wealth of its neighbor, Missouri, ls
$300, that of Kansas is $1.700. When
a banker of another state askad for
an explanation why Kansas had so
much larger per capita bank deposits
than his own state the reply waB,
"Kansas puts her money in the banks,
while you put yours in the caloona."
Why He Changed H'm Vote.
"I was an anti a lon*; time, but one
day I heard some little children talk
ing, when one of them, whose rather
had beu ruined by liquor, said:
'Mamma says men that vo'. for sa
loons are to blame for us having such
a hard time.' It stung me. but I knew
it was the truth, and I vowed that 5
would wrong no more women and
children by voting for saloons."
