A: v ; uA Hom?TQi9R 7 TUT B GIVE CARE TO SHRUBBERY Good Idea to Note How Dame Nature Hat Arranged Growth to the Beit Advantage. ' In a state of nature, shrubs that (row In masses or thickets stand close together, intermingle "their branches from the time they spring up as seed lings and make their growth wholly upward 'from an early age, since the light Is shut off from them on all sides by their crowding neighbors. Thus, all run to height save those on the outermost edge of such mass. To arrange a planting that will at once conform to this that Nature produces, shrubs that grow erect and "to the top" must be used for back ground, with low-growing, spread ing, and even drooping kinds planted against them. Tet the mistake of a monotonous, evenly graded bank - of green extending from the turf upward everywhere is to be avoided, for this is .truly fearful In Its artificiality. The proper way to assemble a shrubbery Is to cluster the individual shrubs loosely and irregularly, group ing them by kinds, In the main, but Invariably scattering the kinds to gether at the -edges of each group; and further scattering one or two of any dominant king here and there throughout the entire mass. Or, to express it In formula: All , varietal clusters should give way on their edges to the neighboring -variety, so that a friendly Intermingling shall prevail, to a considerable degree In some places down to almost none at all in others; for all the world as daisies and buttercups intermingle In a meadow TJT-:" r.T"-- GARDEN SEAT THAT INVITES Makes for Delightful Hours Out of Doors During the Long Days of Summer, "" The 'embowered garden seat entice one to pause and rest, and while away mnny delightful hours out of doors In . Ideal Seat for Garden. peaceful seclusion. It Is also another excuse for more graceful climbing vines and flowers. Bungalow Vs. Two-Family. Put a two-family house on the usual alze lot and the neighborhood at once takes on a citified look. A 'bungalow,, probably costing leea thdh half, on the tame lot would preserve the charac ter of the neighborhood. But If the town, In seeking to maintain Its sub urban characteristics, Eones out the two-family structure, Is It within Its constitutional rights or does It unrea onahly infringe the rights of the property owner? There Is a very nice question here, the right of the neighborhood as against tho Investment right of a single property owner, and compli cated by the constant likelihood of op eration by the real-estate speculators. Probably it Is the last that make most of the trouble. It would be quite an Intricate calculation to say whether the maintained value of the neighbor hood would In case of resale compen sate the Individual bungalow builder for what he might have earned by building a two-fa'mlly house and rent ing one floor. Newark Evening News. ; -' , - ,t x s . ' - Planting the Lawn Shrubbery. " It is an axiom Osgood design that , a lawn that Is broad, sweeping and !, picturesque shall be planted in a broad, jpweeplng, picturesque manner. Straight , lines ' must never' show anywhere, v either as boundaries 'at the founda tions of buildings or as drives or walks. The effect to be created Is of a broad, open glade In the midst of the forest o,r at least in the midst of '. flense and secluding growth, If the im pression of actual forest background is impossible. On every side should be vistas of swirling masses of shrub bery suggestive of the shores of a bay or any small body of water shrub bery that looks to have been pushed back and piled against the heavier background material to make a clear apace where the turf may grow.

Not long ago I was stopped on the" street and the person stopping me said, "I have heard that you have a shop full of cats and dogs, it mus(t be a very filthy place." In reply I asked him if he was ever in my shop. He said, "No, I was never there, but I have heard it talked about in other places and on the street." ' I invite everybody to come and inspect my shop and I believe it will be found to be one of the cleanest in the town. I occupy the Whole floor . and have one large room -for a shop, one for a living room, one for a kitchen and another large one where I clean clothes. All the rooms are clean and sanitary. I have no cat3 and only one small ter rier, which I keep for watching when I am in other parts of the building. Some people have an idea that 1 shouid'. not sleep or fix my meals here. Remember I some times have several hundred dol lars worth of other peoples clothes in my shop at night. If I did not sleep there at night someone might break in and steal some or all of these clothes. Then, too, should fire break out near by at night I could save these' clothes. You see then why I stay in my shop nearly all the time. Again asking you to come and see for yourself, lam, Yours truly. M. Hodeck. t ,f ' i f -4 ft " y & $ - : & ,K Might Learn From Athenians. To have n grownup body of citizens in a town it is essential that local loy alty, local interest, local pride, aug mented by local service, be inculcated nnd assigned their tasks. - Why not recall the spirit and mode of ancient Athens in her period of highest civic power and .grace? The 'Athenian youth, on reaching his ma jority at eighteen years, was intrusted with a citizen's weapons, the shield and spear. He took his citizen onth at a public meeting In the temple of Dionyslus, where solemn rites to Zeus and the local divinities were observed in connection with a drama. Among the new Athenian citizen pledges was this : "Not to leave my ' town In a worse but in a better condition than I found it." Qulncy L. Wood, in the Chicago Daily News. Petunias Single and Double. Because of the ease and facility with which all of the single-tlowered varieties of the petunia can be grown from seed, this plant commands at tention as a worthy candidate for the summer flower garden. The young plants grow rapidly and come into bloom early, and In addition to this thev furnish a continuous wealth of blossoms until destroyed by frost. The1 large-flowered strains aVe very beauu ful and of great variety. For the best results the seeds of all 6orts should be sown In a gentle hot bed, coldframe, or in fine soil in a box placed In a sunny window before or by the time freezing weather Is over. United States Department of Agriculture. Landscape Beauty Enlists an Aid. The state of Michigan is embarking on a gigantic tree:plantlng campaign, not reforestation, but beautifying the roads of the state, t is pleasing to note that there Is one commonwealth which 'is recognizing a long-felt need in this country. When a nation be gins to recognize itself as a landscape, as. well as farm land and town sites, its soul Is beginning to awaken, lieuutj of nature costs little, aside from some common sense . planning and putienl execution. Here's hoping that more states Liny follow MielilsMi'w I'xnmpW . ' feed Advice. ' It Is not enough for a maa to know a good thiug when be sees 1L Ut must also seize it Much Can Be Raised on Patch of Ground Which Some Might Thing Negligible. Don't despise the little patch of ground for a vegetable garden. Even n little pocket handkerchief - sized patch will produce something worth while. A stalwart tomato plant trained to a stake can be grown In a foot square of ground, and training a single trunk to a stake is the very best and tke ideal way of growing tomatoes. It Is wasteful to allow them to sprawl over the ground in the old fashioned way where it is impossible to gather the tomatoes without injur ing the vines, and when a portion of the fruit Is likely to rot from contact with the earth, Accommodate the vegetable that can be planted closely to the size of the garden. Even a 5 by 5 patch would grow lettuce, radishes and young onions for a number of meals for a small family. A 10, by 10 garden, which is usually within the reach of anybody who has any garden room at all, will give substantial return. It wouldn't accommodnte much in the way of sweet corn, potatoes or melons, but It would take care of tomatoes, peppers, radishes, young onions, car rots, a few beets, string beans or other vegetables that do not need too much room. Ageratum for Blue Flowers. For strengthening the. garden's .color forces In blue, no annual Is so good as ageratum. It grows well upon al most all soils, and through a wide range of climate ; for that reason many combinations with it are possible. The plants are easily grown, neat, bushy, and erect, with a continual profuse clustering of pretty bushlike flowers throughout the season. The dwarf blue sorts make fine borders nnd are much. used, ivhere contrasting color ef fects are desired. For. early results the seed should be sown In cold frames or boxes In the house early In the season before freezing weather Is past, but for summer and fall blooms the seeds may be sown In well-pre-paoed beds In the open after the ground stops freezing. United States Department of Agriculture. That -Coat of Whitewash. Whitewash is of value both as a disinfectant and also because of its color. It acts as a ' preservative of wooden structures, and If properly prepared is a fire retardant. A dark and' gloomy cellar may be made bright and clean by the use of whitewash. Cellar steps, beams and other obstacles should be covered- with .whitewash, which will serve to call them to atten tion, thus avoiding accidents. On small buildings about ,the lot as well as trees nnd fence posts, white wash can be used to advantage as a means of Improving their appearance and also to some extent reducing at tacks from vermin. Get Rid of Unsightly Places. . Unsightly places can often be cov ered with vines and hidden by flowers, If unable to be removed. At a small cost, grass nnd flower seeds can be purchased and even the children can help, and take great delight in plant ing and caring for the flowers. A few flowers will, .oftentimes, trans form the most unsightly yard Into a perfect little paradise, which is a cred it to the neighborhood and our city. If .each family will improve Its own yard and surroundings, the city will take care of Itself. HAMBONE'S MEDITATIONS 3EY TELLS ME A FOOL EN. HE MONEY SOON PAHTEP BUT SHUCKS.'
