From every life lived under such oeaditions something is taken that can t be replaced by any figures showing o-ly hunian activity that has not con bilbuted to the improvement of human The saddest and most depressing thought that can find a place in the imnd when contemplating the wretched ~mndltions under which so many mil eons of lives are lived in this country 9 the realization of the fact that if a greater proportion of human industry, *0 same laborious work of human bads that builds the palaces of the Slkonaires and the millions of fiats, tnements and shacks that are occu pied by the working people, could b-e devoted to building the right kind of suburban pr rural homes for those same workers, what a different nation this would be a generation or so hence. While the people are crowding into the cities, the villages and small towns ae being depleted not only of their population, but their trade as well. In sead of working together to realize the real joys of village life, with all its possibilities of human sympathy, close Mrendships, love of nature's beauties and the inspiration of the ideal home lfe that is possible in such an environ ment, the spirit of unrest possesses many, and as soon as opportunity of fers they plunge into the maelstrom of le city life. Those who stay in the village, in the majority of cases, do not work together as they might to create an environ mernt so attractive that the city would have no temptations to offer that would lure any human worker away from the safe anchorage of a rural acme to the artificial life of the tene ment or fiat. The people of other nations are far ahead of us in the realization of the joys of life next to nature and "far from the madding crowd's ignoble strife." In the orient both the Chinese and the Japanese have for 5,000 years realized for the great ma jority of their people the pleasure of a life in a homecroft, in an environ ment that developed the dignity, the mental and physical strength and the tireless and patient energy which are the underlying motive forces that are Mfting those nations forward and up ward today in the great contest for national superiority iu which they are engaged. Settings For Publio Buildings. Along with the growing appreciation of parkway1 comes the recognition of the value, even necessity, of a setting of greensward for all public buildings. In the past areas set aside for munici pal buildings have had the whole avail able space covered by one or more structures. A lawn belt about all mu aicipal buildings is now being demand ed, and the cry is growing louder and more unmistakable that these planta tion belts should be wider, When this growing artistic spirit has reached the proper stage we shall find grass cov ered parkways and street trees on all our principal business streets. Playgrounds a Necessity. A fundamental condition for the per manent development of a free people is that they shall in childhood learn to govern themselves. Self government is to be learned as an experience rather taa taught as a theory: heace in a permanent democracy adequate play grounds for all the otldrea are a use ee.ity. THE FiSH IN HIS BED. Fsnny Clisi cto an Angling Exp*i. ong e f GQsueral Gallifet Lng ago, ton the days of the second empire. General Galltet was the aid le-cauip of Napoleon UII. At Sk Cloud bi" quarters were just ever the Im perial bedroom. hverything around him was very grand and very gloomy. The window of his room looked upon the pond that washed the walls of the chateau. The water wasu clear and the surrounding scenery was beautiful. but the yeng lieutenant felt like a prisoner. Early one morning, while seated at his window trying to drive away the blues with a cigar, be espied below in the crystal water an enor mous earp. The Instinct of the angler. strong In Gallifet, made the young man's eyes snap and set his heart throbbingt. The big Sal-was the private property of the emperor. Consequently for Gal Ilfet it was forbidden Ash. But It was such a fine fellow The resistasce of the soldier's conscience was useless. It surrendered unconditionally. The re maleinl part of thb eampaiga agaInst the carp was smple enough. Gallitet went to his trunk, brought out his trusty Ilne, to which he fastened a hook and as artificial bait With his accustomed skill he cast his line. The carp was hooked and hauled In through the wnldow. Here the ieutenant's fun ended and his trouble began. The fsh, landed upon a table, everturned a large globe lled with water and caromed from that to a magntificent vase, which it also upset and smashed to pieces upon the foor. Then It began to execute a genuine pes de carpe among the smith ereens. The emperor. bearing the strange racket overhead and seeing the water trickling through the ceiling, was as tonished. He rushed upetairs to find out what was the matter. Gallifet heard him coming and endeavored to grab the carp and throw it out of the window and thus destroy the evidence of his poaching in the imperial pond. But the slippeif thing was hard to hold, so he tossed It into a bed and covered it up with the bedclothes. When the emperor entered the room, he noticed Immediately the quivering bedclothes. He pulled them down and uncovered the foundering fsh. His majesty's face assumed an almost jim. jamic' expression, which gradually faded into a faint smile. He took in the entire sltuation, saluted and left the future war minister to meditate upon the mysteries of a eisherman's luck. The Wrong Bird. One of the ,well known magicians not along ago had a queer experience, but the people in the theater had more fun out of it than he did. One of his tricks was to shake a sack to show that it was empty and then to draw out of It an egg, after which he would always reach in again and bring out the hen that laid the egg. Of course he had to have help In this, and one night he had a new man who did everything just as he had been told until it came to this act. Reaching into the bag, he drew forth the fowl at the usual time, but instead of the hen an old rooster hopped down on to the stage, ruffed its feathers and strutted around, crowing with all its might, while the audience laughed and the magician went out to bhnt his new helper.-London Opinion. Had Experience. Not long ago there entered the office of the superintendent of a trolley line in Detroit an angry citizen demanding justice in no uncertain terms. In response to the ofcial's gentle in quiry touching the cause of the demand the angry citizen explained that on the day previous as his wife was boarding one of the company's cars the conductor thereof had stepped on his spouse's dress, tearing from it more than a yard of materiaL. "I can't see that we are to blame for that," protested the superintendent "'What do yeou expect us to de-get her a new dress?" "No, sir, I do not," rejoined the angry aitizen, brandishing a piece of cloth. "What I propose Is that you people shall match this matarlal."-Harper's. Why, indeed? The flve-ear-old son was asking his father some severe questions about a recent addition to the family. "That baby likes ma," said the youngster sharply. "Oh, yes, he likes your ma," said his father.

Peeled and boiled it a reddish broth seasoned with lau rel leaves and earaway seeds, the nuts are palatable. About two dosen of the large kernels are sold for a penny. In both Genoa and Naples the friggitrlio are Interesting, and some of their spe clalties are well worth a trial if one can forget the unappetising appear ance of cooks and cooking applianops. One friggitrice attracts attention t. tray of golden bhlls which she piles a pyramid. The golden balls are ard chokes. They are boiled in salted wa ter until tender and are put ti a pan over steam to keep them hot until a customer appeals. For threepence the vender will take one from the steam. Ing pan, dry it, dip it into batter and pop it into the hot oil. A moment later a golden brown ball, delicious and crispy on the outside and tender and succulent on the inside, is handed to the purchaser. The frying is man aged In such a way that when the fritters are taken from the kettle they are very hot, but so dry on the outside that they searcely soil the fingers when eaten from the hand. Another trig gitrice specialty is that of cheese balls. They are made of paste filled with grated cheese and fried. Mashed chest nuts, rice, chopped chicken and many vegetables are used to vary the fillings for the popular fritos. Some of the frying kettles are portable, and the friggitrici have regular routes like the milkmen, where they tap at the base ment door, get their orders, take their tiny bellows and blow up the char coal until it glows and then ook the breakfast of meat balls or riee cakes or artichokes, which are sent in hot. Leslie's Weekly. Soleeodows. Only two species of that siagular in sectivorous mammal, the solenodon, are known, one inhabiting Haiti and the other Ouba. They differ ehiefy in the color and quality of their fur. Solenodons are quaint looking animals, rather larger than ratn, with long flexi ble snouts and naked tals. They are nocturnal and obtain their food by digging in the soft ground for inseets, etc., with their snouts. Their brain capacity is small, and they are said to have the curious habit when hunted by dogs of hiding their heads in the nearest holes and leaving their bodies exposed. The Clook Was Wrecked.
