The oi Ject is to make Harrisburg a more beautiful city in 1015 than it ever was before and to encourage the planting of flowers, shrubbery and lawns. There is no reason why this city should not be a mass of bloom from early Spring until frost cuts down the plants in the Fall. Only a few years back, when Harrisburg was not much more than an overgrown country town, ovary yard contained Its garden. The heme that had no flower beds, no mat ter how small the premises, was look ed upon with suspicion, as the resid ing place of a slothful, careless family. But with the growth of the town and tli® encroachment of buildings upon th 3 land, Harrisburg forgot its good oil-fashioned ways in a large measure ai d began to take on the airs of the crowded city. Here and there a gar» d' n flourishes, but they are all too few, Poopie with little or no ground at their di jposal have not thought it worth while to attempt any planting, al ii ough there are very few indeed who do not enjoy flowers and who are not hotter for associating with growing things in their daily lives. This is a mistaken attitude. A 1> -autiful garden may be cultivated even in so small a space as a window box. Front porches offer really exten sive possibilities fof elaborate garden ing schemes and there is no limit to v. hat may be done with a front lawn or a backyard at one's disposal. How beautiful Harrisburg would 1 e if every house front were decorated with well planted, colorful window box gardens and what a joy it would be to walk about the streets of the city in summer if every front porch had its screen of vines, and its banis ter boxes of flowers, and if every front : nd rear yard presented to the eye the myriad forms of plant life that might be made to flourish there. This is no idle dream. The possi bilities are at hand. It only remains for Harrisburg people to display inter <sst enough and energy enough to de velop them. It was for this reason that the Telegraph's offer was extended to the Civic Club. The good ladies of that organization have done more for Har risburg in this respect than is general ly known. Hundreds of children make their little gardens every year because the Civic Club has encouraged them to do so. Now the time has come for the club to widen its activities and this newspaper is pleased to be one of the instruments for the extension of the club's City Beautiful plan. One hundred dollars will be distri buted among the gardeners of iiarris- Iburg during the coining summer. If the plan meets with success it is al together likely that this sum will be (increased next year. At all events, the tprizes are worth trying for. They have been so arranged as to give everybody an opportunity to win one. Even a lodger with room for a single window box at his disposal may come In for one of them. There is none *o humble but that he or she may have opportunity of taking one of the Telegraph's prizes and to thereby help make Harrisburg a pleasanter place in which to live. This applies not only to private residences, but to industrial plants, factories, churches, firehouses and public buildings. Other towns and cities liave devel oped their gardening contests to the point of municipal institutions. George W. Cable, in his delightful book "The American Garden," calls attention to the success of this movement In North ampton, Mass., which is a town not nearly so large as Harrisburg, but where after the gardening contests have been carried on for a period of five years there are 1013 gardens in competition. In other words, 1013 homes, many of which formerly boast ed of no more attractive surroundings |than those of some Harrisburg houses ,are now the centers or attractive gar-j dens and Northampton has become one of the most beautiful spots in New England. What can be done in Northampton can be done in Harrisburg. Let us all get together and work for the beautifica.tlon of the old town during the summer of 1915. Unleaa Immediate attention is given " FRIDAY EVENING. 1 HARRISBURG TELEGRAPH APRIL 23, 1915 j by the Police Department to the roller skating craze that has broken out again I in different parts of the city there is i bound to be ai deplorable tragedy. Some of the paved streets most used by au tomobiles are now little better than skating rinks at night. If skating is to be allowed, then it should be restricted to certain places so that, there may be less danger of accident from automo biles and motorcycles. GAMBLING IN STOCKS RECENT activities In Wall Street indicate that the gambling spirit is still rampant and that so long as there arc lambs to fleece there will be those to shear them. One large Industrial concern, prosperous through large orders from the bel ligerent nations of Europe, has been the storm center of a skyrocketing gambling spree such as has not been | known for several years. Referring to i this activity on the exchange and the I pell-mell rush of the lambs toward the shearer, an investment house says: j While a great many of the trans actions nowadays represent gam bling operations pure and simple, now and then a genuine buyer ap pears even at the present high prices. But notwithstanding these state ments from those who are upon the inside of the stock exchange, the gam bling spirit lias seized scores and hun dreds of men and women who imagine that they can beat the gambler at his own game. Professional operators are now on the side of the bulls in the market and the lambs—otherwise the uninitiated outsiders—are furnishing these operators a delightful holiday. As has been suggested by one of the brokerage experts, the speculative im agination of the buying public has been aroused and those who vainly believe they can beat the gay deceiv ers of Wall Street are plunging as they have not plunged since the last great orgy in stock gambling several years ago. With the growing confidence among all classes of people in the funda mental soundness of American busi ness it is a comparatively easy matter for experienced stock jobbers to In fluence speculation such as has been going on for several weeks. But it sometimes becomes a question whether Wall Street is a financial benefit to the country or a positive menace to its substantial prosperity. It is, however, the honest conviction of many potential leaders in industry, finance and commerce that the United States has struck rock bottom, and despite the distrust of the Wilson administration and the exasperating policy of congressional interference better times are at hand. It is a - positive pleasure to note the growing and widespread interest throughout the city in flowers and beautiful lawns and the planting of trees and shrubbery. This interest is not confined to any one class; it per vades the entire population and all | sections of the city. With the cleaning j up of the refuse of the winter there I should come a general planting of j flowers and plants and everything that will add to the beauty of our homes. START SWATTING IT does not require Dr. Howard's sta tistics about the multiplying pow ers of the house fly to demonstrate the necessity of starting early in the campaign against this nuisance. Better results can be accomplished right now, and henceforward through the Spring, than by a spasmodic fight against the fly in the summer time. For purposes of illustration it was set forth that the killing of one fly cut off more than 5,000,000,000.000 descendants. Or. to state It otherwise, with a single swing of a folded news paper the process of infesting the neighborhood with five trillion flies was stopped. This gives an idea of what one fly means early in the year. Every one killed now is a greater gain towards sanitation than hundreds killed in July or thousands killed . in August. If a com petition were organized at this time, each fly reported dead would be worth more to the contestant than a thou sand time as many six months from new. The fact that 7,000,000 flies were killed last summer in the "Swat the Fly" crusade does not guarantee a fly less city this season. It helped, of | course, and the city is cleaner and healthier in consequence, and there will be fewer flies this Spring. What is needed now is a follow-up fight against the survivors and their prog eny. The flyless city will come as a result chiefly of springtime work, and this will be a good year to start it. For i the present the thing to do is to watch for the flies, kill them whenever they are seen, and at the first opportunity clean out the trash from cellars and yards, and above all to screen all stable pits and thus deprive the fly of Its most effective breeding places. Put In y«ur house screens. Keep out the flies and thus protect your own home. Park Commissioner Taylor has been conspicuously active this Spring In the planting of trees and shrubbery. To day hundreds of school children are helping him in the setting out of 5,000 selected trees In Wildwood Park. These are the things which will make Har risburg one of the most attractive capi tals in the country. MR IvITTS' SPEECH THE speach of Representative Kitls, of Erie, the Democratic member of the House who led the anti-local option forces to the defeat of the Williams bill on Tuesday, was admirable in one re spect, and in one respect only. It summed up comprehensively the en tire opposition to the local option principle. Mr. Kitts confined himself, as all opponents of the measure do, to call ing Governor Brumbaugh hard names for taking his stand upon the side of good government and respectability. Me berated preachers for daring to pray for its success, and got away down into Paterson, N. J„ to accuse Billy Sunday of "religious hysteria" and reached a climax by declaring all members of Young Men's Christian Associations and women's clubs the "rabble of the State." llere we have summed up in a brief form all of the reasons why local option is not Rood for Pennsylvania and why tho liquor interests demanded the defeat of the county unit bill. Logical and convincing, aren't they? ["EVENING CHAT i >.ot in recent years has the floral display in tho State Capitol Park been as gorgeous as it is to-day. The whole front of the big building is fringed by a triple row of tulips. These tulips arc of the red and yellow variety which the State has used for years and which have been developed in the park. The State takes no sides in the matter of (lowers. If has the yellow of the suf fragists and the red of the "antis" in one flower and the display which is just opening up is worth taking a walk through the park to see. The rows of tulips are about two hundred feet long on each side of the central entrance and have attracted much attention from the visitors who have been here in large numbers this week. The State has a number of beds of hyacinths, which have beer, attractively arranged in various parts of the park. To the right of the main walk there are two beds of white hyacinths crossed by blues. Along the Third street side of the park there is another bed of blue and white hyacinths and a huge round plot of yellow jonquils. In the neigh borhood of the State Museum there Is a great long device of hyacinths con taining several hundreds which is much admired. There are several oth er flower plots in the park whose beau ty has caused many comments. | The State's orange trees have been sprayed and are ready for the sea son. These trees have a precarious existence on the terrace outside the window of State Librarian Montgom ery and if they get any fruit it does not arrive at maturity as the squirrels have a great liking for the seeds and the young fruit is apt to disappear be fore it gets much larger than a mar ble. A few years ago they put some thing on the trees and the squirrels gave up the attempt to forage in dis gust. The fruit got about the size of small apples and when someone tried an orange he was mad at himself for a whole day. Dandelion cutting has become a rec ognized industry at this season of the year and there are many who be lieve in the medicinal qualities of the plant; The bills surrounding the city are filled with women and children, who by industriously plying the knife are enabled to cut a big chunk from the high cost of living. Farmers, who uproot the plant from their lawns and fields and sell It in market get double returns—they clear their fields of dan delion, which sometimes assumes troublesome proportions and get good cold cash for it. 'Way up near the headwaters of the Rio Negro, a branch of the Amazon in Brazil lies the city of Manos; Har risburg helped to put that city on the map, commercially, according to I. W. Copelln, a brother of Captain O. M. Copelin, city treasurer, who has just returned from an extensive trip through that country. Mr. Copelln, who has traveled all over South Amer ica, said he didn't know until he made his last trip, how thriving n city Manos was. It is equipped with splendid manufacturing plants and Its own fil ter and lighting system. It was in the engine room of the electric light plant that Mr. t'opelin said he got a vivid reminder of faraway Harrisburg. One of the great stationary engines that was busily turning the generators that made possible the illumination of the streets of Manos was made by the Har risburg Foundry and Machine works. State street grass plots are favorite places for school fights these days and yesterday afternoon a bunch of boys had a lovely time tearing up the turf and settling some questions. Two bands appeared to meet on the way home and they just went to it and wrestled and fought for half a block. People passing by expected to see some blood shed, but when a boy was put down with both shoulders touching he was classed as "licked." Small boys in various parts of the city are having a fine time with sal vage from the Montgomery storage warehouse fire on Sunday. It seems that some stationery supplies were in tho building and that they were so damaged that they were thrown away. That fascination that a fire always has for boys attracted the youngsters to the ruins and they found pencils and other things and filled their pockets. Some young fellow bad a lot of fun Wednesday evening playing "jitney." It must be a new game. This young man had a tine, large car and ho would stop at a corner and offer a "ride any where for a jit." People got in without asking his route and he would whirl them about the central part of the city, up along Front street and out on the Mulberry street bridge and then calmly return them to the Square. He ignored their protests and when they refused to pay lie would laugh ahd spin away. Half a dozen men who thought they were going home found them selves back where they started and wanted to fight. Among the visitors to the city yes terday was Lewis Machen, who la head of the Legislative Reference Bureau of Virginia. He came to see the Capi tol and to meet state and city officials.

Governor Brumbaugh Will Con sider the Nominations Within the Next Fortnight KEEPS SILENT ON PLANS Woodward's Friends Urge Him For Next Nomination For Auditor General Capitol Hill looks for Governor Brumbaugh to take up the matter of appointments during the next fort night. The local option bill being out of the road the Governor plans to work on his child labor bill and to urge workmen's compensation and his highway improvements. He will hardly do much on the proposed de partment of conservation and will have some further talks on the agri cultural commission. Among the appointments which have been banging fire is that of Com missioner of Health Samuel G. Dixon, while those of Superintendent of Po lice Groome anil Hanking Commission er Smith are also overdue. These offi cials are all regarded at the Capitol as likely to be reappointed any day. The Governor refuses to say what he plans about the Public Service Commission and it is believed that he will not do anything or. that subject for a couple of weeks. —Friends of James F. Woodward, chairman of the House appropriations committee, are booming him strongly for the next nomination for auditor general. Mr. Woodward's work this session has attracted attention and he is being urged to consider the advis ability of becoming a candidate. Thus far he has declined to talk about .it, saying he is too busy with appropri ations. —Warren VanDyke, the new deputy collector of Internal revenue, will have his headquarters in Lancaster, and it is believed that he will retire as secretary of the State committee. Mr. VanDyke is now a resident of this city and a member of the city Demo cratic committee. —E. J. Hart, staff correspondent of the Scranton Times, had a birthday party last night attended by newspa permen and legislators. He was given congratulations and some gifts. George J. Erennan, of the Philadel phia Inquirer, was toastmaster and speeches were made on the anthracite tax and other projects close to the host. Representatives Dawson and Baker gave their inside impressions of their first session. —John Stiles, the Senate page ac cidently shot at Pottsvllle while hand ling a revolver, died yesterday. He was only fifteen, and had many friends among the legislators. —A Philadelphia newspaper prints the following: "Senator Penrose plans to go to Pittsburgh next week. His friends say he wants to learn of the political situation in Western Pennsyl vania, discuss who will be the succes sor to United States Senator Oliver and confer with his lieutenants about pending legislation. He may stop at Harrisburg on the way. Senator Pen rose goes to Pittsburgh to accept two invitations, one nonpolitical and the other political. Next Sunday night he will deliver an address at the memorial services of the Supreme Lodge of the Loyal Order of Moose. On Tuesday evening he will attend fhe dinner of the Americus Club in celebration of Grant's birthday. If his engagements permit, he will remain in Pittsburgh until Thursday night to accept an invi tation to attend the Founder's Day celebration of the Carnegie Institute. The understanding here is that Senator Penrose wtll confer on politics not only with his associates in Allegheny coun ty, but with leaders and active Repub licans from throughout Southwestern Pennsylvania." WHEN FISH HEfJIN TO BITE By Harry M. Dean. When Springtime comes a-creepin' round. Just easy-like, an' slow. I'm out a diggin' up the ground For bait with which to go A-flshin'; an' I'm here to say, I do not care a mite For work. I'm sure to run away When fish begin to bite. If you have ever been a boy You'll know just how I feel: You've known, 1 hope, the wondrous joy When one can softly steal Away from all one has to do An' sit until the night Comes creepin' down, a-warnin' you— When llsh begin to bite. There's some folks who don't like to fish, Who say they'd rather rest. Well, I am sure that's not my wish, For I like flshin' best. 11 never get enough, and so I find it rare delight To gather up my lines and go When fish begin to bite. DECIDING THINGS I'm tired in my decider: The blamed thing needs a rest. From waking time to sleeping time It works its level best. What clothes shall I be wearing? A fresh shirt for to-day? What shall my food for breakfast be? And just what should I say In answer to the bid received From Smithers, Smith and Co. — These things my poor decider's asked, And how is it to know? As if this task weren't plenty. To settle things for me, To it for guidance comes, alack, Mv every employe! S'lall . do this?

THE BIGHT GOLF CM OS The player who is inclined to slice should not play with an upright club; he should choose one with a medium or even flat lie. and he should also see that there Is not too much heel on the face of the club. In fact, he would be well advised to have as much as pos sible taken off. The reverse applies to a player who hooks; he should not play with a flat lvlng club or a club with the least bit of hook on the face; he should choose a medium or upright lie and should have the face of the club almost paral lel with the shaft. Very frequently a club with a little more spring In the shaft than usual will greatly assist a plaver who is troubled with chronic hooking. Regarding the length and weights of clubs, as long as the player does not go to extremes, say, for in stance, he does not use any wooden clubs longer than forty-four shorter than forty-two inches between thirteen ounces and fourteen ounces, it is almost a matter bf fancy and ex perience. Almost any kind of player could adapt himself to these styleß of clubs. A fairly accurate guide is the weight and strength of the player. A strong, heavy man can, of course, use a powerful club and have a good deal of success; a man of slighter build should use a lighter club with, perhaps, a little spring in the shaft.—May Out ing.
