PROPER CARE OF THE LAWN
Grass Plat Must Never Be Neglected
If Home ls to Have a Proper
One of the most important duties
on the home place during the summer
is the care of the lawn. There Is
nothing about a place that makes BO
much for general attractiveness as a
well cared for lawn.
Many people make the mistake of
keeping the lawn cut too close. In
that case the grass roots are exposed
to hot sun and drying winds during
the summer. Cut the lawn frequently,
but do not set the machine too close.
, To keep the lawn lodking clean at all
times have a grass-catcher attachment
on the mower. A careful watch for
weeds on the lawn should be kept
Cut them out well below the surface
with an old knife as soon as they are
large enough to be seen.
A roller on the lawn is advisable,
but lt should be used with care.
Lawns that have been rolled for a long
time are likely to become over-rolled;
there is surface cohesion or close
packing of the top soil, which prevents
the admission of air and healthy root
development. The remedy ls the use
of the spiked tamper. A home-made
one may be made by taking a piece of
two-inch plank, some 12xl2-inch tim
ber and inserting four-inch spikes an
inch and a half or two inches apart
Bore holes a little smaller than the
spikes before driving them in, to pre
vent splitting the wood. Perforate
ithe whole surface thoroughly with
"his, give a top dressing, lightly rake
lit in and water the whole thoroughly
late in the afternoon.
HAVE TOP SASH SCREENED
May Be Considered Small Matter, But
la Always Advisable-Advice for
Don't forget that you may at some
time want to open the top sash of the
window, and that flies and mosquitoes
are not particular as to through which
sash they enter; therefore have the
aereen run from top to bottom of the
window; to do this, side springs will
be necessary lu the screen frames, but
they will cost little more than a screen
which can be used only from the bot
tom sash and which is little better
than no screen at ali
Don't forget that there will never be
a better time to build than the pres
ent; materials of all kinds are cheap
er than they have been for several
years, and as soon as the European
war is over there is sure to be a sharp
advance lu prices.
Don't say you can't build now be
cause you have not enough money; if
you have a little, the co-operative
banks and building associations will
loan you the balance needed upon
terms under which you can pay for the
house in monthly installments which
would be no more than you would or
dinarily be paying for rent-Ex
The City Beautiful.
A one-time mayor of New York,
George B. McClellan, said: "In a
self-governing community, the ul
timate object of the government is the
happiness of "he governed. Something
more is needed to make the happy
city than health and,stealth and wis
dom. The city healthy, the city
wealthy, and the city wise, may excite
satisfaction, complaisance and pride,
but it is the city beautiful that com
pels and retains the love of people."
When last the tree meu of the South
met at Riverside, in the music room
of the famous Glenwood Mission mn,
au illuminated sign stretched across
the stage, which read: "Make your
city beautiful and you will learn to

States bureau of standards has been
In conference with the public-service
commissions and managers of public
service corporations in various parts
of the country. The information so
obtained has been used in preparing
the bureau's forthcoming circular on
"Standards for Electric Service." An
other representative of the bureau
spent the entire month in the South,
making measurements of street il
lumination and electric current in the
street-lighting systems of a number
of cities and towns. The results of
the investigation wW form the basis
of a circular on street lighting.
Use Only Fire-Resisting Material.
! There has been established in Cleve
land, 0., a society whose object is to
disseminate information on the safe,
aane and sanitary building of mod
erate-priced houses. This society rec
ommends only such building materials
aa will resist the action of the ele
ments, thus reducing to a minimum
Jthe fire hazard.
Shade Trees Improve Property.
It has been estimated that within
the cities of New York state there are
20,000 miles of streets capable of sus
taining S growth of 5,000,000 shade
trees, which can be made worth $100.?

The man with the- easel placed it
close to the fence so that he could
look over the palings and down that
rosy vista of hollyhocks. The cottage
beyonu the hollyhocks was quite hid

branches of a chinaberry tree. In
tne path netweea the rows of holly
hocks stood a girl in a pink dimity
frock. The skfr* was frilled to the
waist with tiny pia* raffles. A pink
.sunbonnet hid her face.'
"My medal pictttraJ*' exclaimed the
artist, opening his paint box. "I don't

With swift, sure strokes he outlined
the girl's pliant form in its quaint
gown of the newest fashion-a mod
ern adaptation of an old style. She
was facing the hollyhocks and look
ing intently at something on a round,
green hollyhock leaf. One slender
white hand and rounded wrist were
stretched cautiously out, and one lit
tle foot in Its high-heeled slipper ap
peared beneath the short skirt.
She scarcely seemed to breathe, and
five minutes passed before he drew
back quickly while a great golden but

among the trees. \
Even then she did not face him, but
turned toward the cottage and van

Wade Newton glanced across his

placed on an easel. ,
"It isn't a girl you know, is it?"
went on Henderson, stroking his tiny
"Never saw her face," said Newton.
"Because I have a curiosity to dis

Ned, Miss Hollyhocks brought me
fame and a number of orders. I'm go- ]

"Idiot!n gibed Henderson drawing
on his gloves. "But I suppose you can
go down and find her in the old gar
den any time you please."
"I wish I could," returned the other ]
with a sigh.
"What do you mean?"
"You know I was called abroad as
soon as I finished that picture. When
I returned I went immediately to
Sleepy Valley where I had chanced
upon the garden, but the girl and her
people had vanished as the rose of
yesterday. It seems they had only
hired the place for three months and
beyond learning that the name was
Smith I came back as wise as I went."
"Smith! I like Miss Hollyhocks
better!" said Henderson. "Of course
she might have been homely as sin,
but, believe me, Wade, only a girl
with a peachy complexion will guard
it with a sunbonnet."
Newton laughed Indulgently. "I be

to dreaming, too," he said.
"Well, by-by; I'm off," said Hender

"I will," agreed Newton.
He dismissed the picture and the
unknown girl from his thoughts and
dressed for dinner. He had promised
to dine with the Colemans, who had
just returned from a year's travel
abroad. Their daughter, Dorothy, had
held Wade's heart in the hollow of her
hand for many months, only she did
not know it. Wade was not sure of
it himself, for his girl of the holly

In three strides Newton had crossed
