Immense pub lic buildings, a ring of boulevards and a bunch of marble monuments. The residents of that New England city have gotten this into thier heads: "That a city beautiful must first of all be a city clean." They had a general cleannig day, giving the backyards, vacant lots, neg lected alleys and side streets a thor ough scouring. And having adminis tered the cure they also applied this preventive for future reference: 1. Don't throw anything on the sidewalk or street. Find, a rubbish can. 2. Don't tear up paper and scatter It anywhere. 3. Don't let any piles of ashes or rubbish stay in your back yard. 4. Don't mix ashes and garbage in the same can. eat old coal or clikers. 5. Dont' fill the ash hin or garbage can too full. 6. Don't chalk the sidewalk, fences, buildings or pavements. 7. Don't deface park benches, school furniture or any public prop erty. 8. Don't forget that horses love batiana skins. A banana skin isn't dangerous If It is inside a horse's stomach. 9. Don't do anything that will bring disgrace to the city where you live. Pigs don't like to 10. Don't expect your city to be come clean and perfect all at once. It will become an Ideal city only when everybody does something every day to help make things better.
