Interestin our "City Beauti- V ful" Campaign should awaken by from its winter slumbers now, aga that the balmy days begin to re turn with greater frequency, and Fel the nameless magic in the air agE warns us of Spring's coming, we Now is the time to plan the flower for yards, for the beautifying of our tioJ homes depends much on the cit wisdon we use in arranging the 1 flower beds. Tnere is nothing the more effective than a wide bor- the der of flowers all around the vai house, and if the foundation can inc be latticed in before the flowers raj are planted so much the better. hu Let us plant the hardy, showy in flowers such as zinnias, daisies, lai cosmos, and salvia. The salvia be and cosmos will be with us un til frost and with a little extra gi' care as to watering in dry spells Lb and keeping the dead blossoms di; cut off, the zinnias will be with if us then, too. In addition to the PO many showy blossoms, there are w) many wonderful plants which he our gentle climate fosters, roses, lillies, jasemines and palms, the irris and gladioli. Let us plan for these in profusion. There is pa no more ennobling influence in life than the love of flowers. We owe it to our children to sur round them these messengers of so God's love. Did you ever see a real lover of flowers, who was not gentle and refined? Flowers are a necessity. Let us as a com munity become flower enthu siasts. This year we must "Clean-up and Paint-up" as nev er before, but we must "Plant- R up", too, if we are to become a true "Ciiy Beautiful." Dig deep, 4. and pulverize well, fertilize care. fully and get everything ready to put the seed in as soon as possible. of Venire. b No, Name Ward a 1.- Ernest Breland......,. 8, 2. W. E.

"If you don't stop wfnBidng ariiund, Nan," he said, "I'll move on. It's im possible to rend or even to think in your uneasy presence. By all thalt's reasonable, what is the matter with you ?" Nan caught up a porch pillow and aimed it at her brother. "You are the nmatter," she replied; "you and the rest of our anuless crowd. I am so tired of mattring with silly Cinud Barnett, and you had no right to promise William Launcelot a meeting with me this afternoon. Ilis name shiows what Ihe would be like; I don't want to know him." SBob regarded his sister. "Your real troulle," he said frankly, "is too mnuch good fortune. If you had to get out and work like some a girls it would be better for you." Nan merely nodded her pretty head. "I think so too," she said-"and the e same to yourself." "I," her brother lnzily remarked, "am contented with things as they are. The rule does not apply. How ever," he laughed as he opened his book, "if ambition overwhelmus you get d out on the Tarm and help Cy with the r grapes." r "I'1l do it," she said; "it will he dif e ferent. I'm going to put on a gingham i, dress and start for the vineyardl now. I will apply incognito-Nancy Tucker from Tuckersville; don't you dare ' breathe a word." y Bob grinned. Y "Yes-you-will," he jeered. htM Nan was gone. Her pnl;k gtinghatm Y dress was appropriately ftded. and she tucked her hair under a commtntl is garden hat and steered her little car farmwnard. She found a convenient Sparking place in a wooded spoit. and JO walked on in a clheery sense of ad Sventure. The pickers were variously 'assembled and the spreading vine IS yards made an inviting picture. )f The man called Cy waS Intt pl'as ' ing, as shie had hoped to find him. Nan was really a hit disappointed; perhaps in all this picturesqueness she had also hoped to find a divertingly - picturesque personality. Cy was mat ter of fact to brusqueness. )r "Get busy if you want the job," he answered her timid application, and pointed out the way. Nan apptronched the loaded vines hesitatingly, then smiled, and began her task. The morning was extremely hot; to the end of the orderly row g. seemed a "long, long trail" indeed. But presently as she hummed and conscientiously picked, a man came down the long trail with a basket. d. "Good day for picking," he pleasant ly remarked. Nan tnodded. She was not acquaint ed with the etiquette of the tile yard, but as the young man Inter h, spersed soft whistled tunes with cas ual conversation, she forgot about eti b. quette and answered him in good. natured camaraderie, "My name is plain Bill Jones," he told her; "ensy to remember, I'm not working here regularly'-'just filling in. And you--?" ed Nan turned down the brim of the garden hat to hide her cotnfuston. "I'm 0* just filling in, too," she said, al "Where are you going to eat your a lunch'!" Bill Jones asked in the friend ly annaer which wee not in the least )resumptuou5. 11' "I am going to eat mine back in a shady spot near the fence.

Two soiled and weary pickers promptly made their way to a certain shady place near the fence, and com* muned as they ate their meal. "I think," said Nan at last in a stmall voice, "that I'll just work an hour more, then go. It does make one s back ache, doesn't it?" Bill .Tones was at once sympathet· IC. "Stop right where you are, if yiou feel that way," he advised, ias Nan cent slowly and regretfully or* dow'-n the road to a woodsy spot where ck- she had parked her car; it seemed a -h pity to have to run away from the _ ed- only really happy day of one's visit, for just because convention made that Sort ere of hnppiness forbidden. Whatever n ad would the Wilkints and her own family Lre think of her enjoyment in such chance ti acquaintanceship? She gazed rteftUly Id, at her stained gingham dress.
