Kni.-n-il June 18. as Second
flass Matter at the Postofflce »t
Miiiot. N. D., under the Act of
onfrri'.us of March 8. 1879.
thi* citizens of Minot will make
a concerted effort this spring, this
city can be transformed into one of
the most beautiful bailiwicks in the
land. Nestled as it is down in the
valley of the Murmuring Mouse, Mi
not already is a most picturesque
place, having all the natural advan
tages. All that is necessary to bring
this city forward as one of the very
prettiest in the entire United States,
is the individual efforts of each and
every resident to make his own home
a beauty spot. This can be done with
tittle cost and some work that will
serve as a spring tonic. Trees should
be planted along every boulevard
flower gardens should be planned
carefully. It is surprising to find
what a lot of flower seeds a little
money will buy. A few shrubs ar
tistically placed on the lawn with
vines over the porches will make the
simplest home 'beautiful. During the
period of high-priced paint with a
dollar an hour for the work, many
homes were neglected. Painting wili
be cheaper this year. This should be
a year for the painting and preserving
of our homes. The back yards should
not be neglected. Many Minot resi
dents have taken special pains to
beautify their rear lots. There are
always vacant lots that grow up to
weeds. Let's clean up such places and
make them presentable. It will soon
be time to get rid of those unsightly
ash piles. The ideal citizen don't leave
his ash pile in evidence until threaten
ed with arrest. Suppose we take
beautiful Riverside Park as an exam
ple and endeavor to make our own
lawns just as pretty. If we will do
this, people will be attracted to our
city. Property will become more valu
able. Minot will be talked about as
the model city and in any event, our
aesthetic taste will be fully satisfied.
The Japs have refused flatly to
consider disarmament plans with rep
resentatives from England and the
United States. Senator Borah pre
dicts that within the next few years
if competitive navy building contin
ues, our country will go to war' with
either England or Japan. England
has twice as many fighting vessels of
the first class at the United States
