Subject Is Engaging the Attention of
Town Authorities in all Sections
of the Country.
In many eastern cities, where the
winters are most severe, the park
officials maintain feeding stations for
wild birds. Even as far up in "the
frozen north" as Minneapolis a num
ber of such winter feeding places are
found in every park of their extensive
system. Theodore Wirtli, the super
intendent of parks, says: "We have
a long severe winter and tind it neces
sary to feed birds regularly every day
for months if we are to hohl them in
our parks for tin* summer. We have
also built and placed a large number
of nesting boxes or bird houses which j
are well populated. We protect birds j
in^ every possible way and the local j
Audubon society is doing excellent .
work. A good many l-inds of birds :
winch were rartly soon here a few
years ago are now found in large rima- |
tiers, and many which formerly b-fr in '
the fall now stay with us over winter." j
We have, in many parks, sutti aient i
shrubbery for cover, we are not tmu- j
tiled much with cats, vet park tnen
should be required to kill all found
within the several larger parks and to j
keep none except a single cat in each i
storehouse. Encouragement should be
given in every way to the increase of
native birds and those of bright plum
age and sweet song from other hands
should tie introduced. The country,
not the city, should perform the office
of introduction of new kinds. In a
climate so mild as ours there should he
a thousand-fold as many birds as we
now have and the parks should be
filled with them.—Los Angeles Times.
National Health, as Well as Conserva
tion and Patriotism, Demand
Planting of Many This Season.
The home garden this coming season
will mean more than it did last year
or ever before. It is not only a means
of national conservation and patrio
tism; a measure of national health
lies within it. The man who can and
who fails to put in a home garden
next spring will be a slacker. T he
government stands ready to help i*
the garden, and government bulletins
on garden subjects may be obtained by
writing to the Division of Publications,
Department of Agriculture, Washing
ton, D. C., for a list of publications
available for distribution. Many of
the state agricultural colleges, too,
have garden bulletins for free distri
Sometimes, in many states of the
Union, there is a chance to plow the
garden early. When that chance
comes the garden should be manured
and plowed. Barnyard manure is a
source of weed seeding. Dut it is the
most satisfactory fertilizer usually ob
tainable. A spot four or five feet
square should be selected at the low
est, wettest spot in the garden for a
compost pile or pit, if not too much
trouble to dig a shallow pit. Into this
lilt throw all grass cuttings, leaves,
vegetable tops and pea vines and to
mato plants. They rot in a year or
two and form a valuable source of
humus for the garden soil.—Country
Public Building Architecture.
It is an unfortunate circumstance
that the concept of "architecture," to
most persons, is limited to libraries,
art galleries and other public build
ings. These they feel, are "architec
ture;" and "architecture," to fulfill the
most popular conception of it, must
have Greek columns, and be executed
in stone, on a scale more or less grand,
and at an expenditure of equally con
spicuous scale.
So far as this general popular esti
mate goes, it is an excellent and high
ly desirable thing. The people of
every town and city, the people even
of every village, should be keenly In
terested In the architectural merit of
every public building which is being
erected with city funds. They should
demand the highest order of archi
tectural merit and should come to
learn some intelligent discrimination
between architectural merit and fi
nancial expenditure. The library, for
example, in a neighboring town may
have cost several thousand dollars
more to build than the library in one's
own town, hut it may not he neces
sarily better architecturally.— Ex
Trees Must Have Room.
In order to insure symmetry of
growth, trees must be allowed unre
stricted area for development. At
least 40 feet should be allowed be
tween trees intended to occupy the
ground permanently. Quick-growing
temporary trees may he planted be
tween the long-lived ones to produce
immediate results, hut those should
be removed as soon as they interfere
with the development of the perman
ent plantations .
