Flowers for Our "City Beau
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
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.

Nan merely nodded her pretty head.
"I think so too," she said-"and the

perhaps in all this picturesqueness she

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
