BEAUTY IN AMERICAN CITIES Field for Artlata Hh Yet Scarcely Baan Proepected, 8aya Writer j In 8cribner'a. As I wandered about the streets' and the parks, studying them under the constantly shifting and kaleidos copic effects which are peculiar to our changeable climate (it might be at twilight, with the lights reflected In long streamers from the wet pave ments, or perhaps twinkling through, a blur of enow on rainy days, at night, or during the Indian summer dtya, wher, tl! ik; srrt i-crs rhnw ed only. .as towering ghosts through the universal purple haze.) 1 came gradually to perceive that here was another kind of beautiful which, how ever much it might differ from that to which I hr bvi si Ion? accustom id abroad, ws none tue less lntrinsio and admirable, says a writer In Scrlb ner's. A tirvj wont t ii t'borr.rtn nor and more fascinated with this strange new loveliness. And nowV after thirty years, 1 have come to hold New Tirk the most beautiful city lu the worM! Not Paris, nor London, nor Rome, nor Antwerp can, in my opinion, compare with It, ettiier lu color or ofce ot, or ) the unexpe'ed racier and l'e'iy of Its plled-up buildings.

It had only to be nppronched by a systemntic tempera ment and with unprejudiced eyes to yield limitless material for the paint er's art. And, inasmuch as nature's moods on thin side of the ocean are. infinitely more varied than they are ; abroad, they lend themselves to the ! most divergent artistie temperament j and permit of a very wide range of personal expression in art Finally, tcan safely be stated that the field has as yet scarcely been pros pected. Between Quebec and New Orleans, between the coast of Maine and California, there are ceuntless beauty spots which are still virgin soil for the artlBt each offering mo tives as different from those of In ness, Wyan Homer Martin and Win slow Homer as theirs were from the motives employed by Corot and Mauve, and Millet and Monet. NEED CARE IN ARRANGEMENT Proper Display of Trees and Shrubs Must Be Made, to Secure the Best Results. , Mrs. Van Rensselaer, ono of our no't art'stic wrileis on the subject of I uk; uix jj'i'ilfiiliiK. spys: "if now we ajk wh?n and where we need tho fine art of landscape garden lag, must not thra answer be: When ever and wherever we touch the sur face of the ground and the plants it hiMra with the v.ish to produce an or-, ganlznd result, that shall ploase the eye? The name we usually apply to It rauBt not mislead us into thinking that thla art Is needed only for the creation of broad landscape effects. It la needed wherever we do nioro than grow plants for the money we may save or gain by them. It does not matter whether we have la mind a great park or a small city square, a large estate or a modest dooryard, we must go about our work in an ar tistic spirit If we want a good result. Two trees and six shrubs, a scrap ef lawi and a dosen .flowering plants may form either a beautiful little pic ture or a disarray of forms and col ors." Offenses Against Public Taste. It Is astonishing that men of wealth and culture should fall to recognize the rights of the public in property, whloh is owned In fee by Individuals or cerporatlons. Putting up bill boards, unsightly walls or fences, the cutting of a sightly tree or hedge or the fail ure to eut an unnightiy one are of fenses against the public which the owner of otherwise private grounds has no moral right to commit. We should remember that the earth was made for man thfdt we should keep and leave it more beautiful than wo found it This is true of our home acre as well as the more elaborate park systems of our largest cities. For Rural Highways. The blue gum probably makes our finest country avenue 'trees, but It should be planted only where it will have plenty of room when fully grown, and where it will not be Injurious to adjoining property. It Is easily and quickly grown, but is a gross feeder, the roots depredating severely on ad Joining fields. Its bark shedding is objectionable, especially along alfalfa c-T grain fields. On the street the blue gum should stand not less than 40 or (0 feet apart to secure spreMlng growth and best type of tadWMaa tree a GRINDS ROOTS FOR POULTRY Machine Intended Mainly for Chop ping ChbLiage VViii eiu Fouiiu of Convenience for Fowls. The grinder is Intended mainly for chopping cabbage when making sauer kraut, but It is bIbo of much service In grinding vegetables acd roots to be ceoked for poultry, says the Popu lar Mechanics. The base, A, is made of a plan!:, at least one foot wide and four feet long, with a nine and one-fourth by nine and one-half Inch hole cut In the center. The grinding part, or cylin der is made of wood three Inches in diameter and nine Inches long, with eight-penny nails, spaced three-six-te nths Inches apart, dileu pprfly Into It and then cut off so as to leave onfiurth inch vvo.'eotlrnj.

The concave is slipped Into place and held with wedges or by driv ing two nails in just far enough to fasten it temporarily. The concave v r J Root Grinder. can be adjusted for grinding the dif ferent vegetable products, or replaced at any time with a new one. the ends of the base are supported on boxes, or legs may be provided if desired. When grinding cabbage, cut the heads into quarters and remove the hearts. Press the cabbage on the cylinder and turn the crank. Fine bits of cabbage, suitable for Bauer kraut will be the result. SUCCESS IN RAISING TURKEYS First Consideration Is Desirable Loca tion and Suitable Range Few Other Essentials. What do I consider the most Impor tant essentials to be a successful tur key raiser? First Important consider ation desirable location and good range; next, sound, healthy fowls of standard breed to begin with, for no one can succeed without sound, heal thy birds to start with. Third, careful feeding. Fourth, keep free from lice. Last, buj not least, dry roomy coop so they can be kept out of sudden showers. These equipments, coupled with sound judgment and proper car of poults, should make anyone success ful In raising turkeys, says a writer In an exchange. The way I manage mine after years of experience, I gather the eggs dally, keep In a place neither too cool nor too hot; turn eggs ever day. When the hen gets ready to set make a coop In some dry place, placing 16 or 18 eggs la nest; bring ben up late In evening, place on nest, keep fastened up two or three days, turn out so she can get something to eat and drink. Watch to see if she goes on same nest When eggs hatch leave poults In nest 36 hours. Move hen and poults to large roomy coop . inclosed in pen to keep anything from running over them. Dust hen and little ones with some good insect powder to kill lice. Feed them egg bread first few days. Give them plenty of fresh water. When they are a few days old give them lettuce and onion tops chopped fine with bread crumbs. Also give them a little chicken feed consisting of grain, small seeds, grit and oyster shells. Keep fastened in coop until strong enough to keep up with hen; turn out in the morning, but see that they come home at night to roost Sprinkle a little black pepper occa sionally In their food, bat be sure not te overfeed, as it brings trouble and disaster in its train. Rules for Pouttry men. It is urged that all farmers and poultry men adhere strictly to the following . ratal In handling their poultry and eggs: 1. Keep the neets clean; provide one nest for ever four kens. 2. Gather the eggs twice dally. 8. Keep the eggs in a cool, dry room or cellar. 4. Market the egag at least twice a week. 5. Sell, kill or confine all male birds as soon as the batoning season is over. Cleanliness Is Profitable. Cleanliness In the poultry pens puts many dollars into the pockets of the poultry man. Management of Crop. The problem begins in the field where the creps are grown. Poor management in gathering reduces profits. Bruises incurred by rough handling work against the Interests of the grower. A needless expenditure of time and energy in harvesting should be avoided. Protection from the sun is often essential. All of these problems must receive atten tion. Straw In the Bedding. Using plenty of straw for bedding improves the quality of the manure and keeps the land in good condition because it provides humus, and hu mus is necessary to all soils. It elso keens the animals clean and comfort atia ana that to r-:.V t profitable. Jhpsi's Netirn?! rVrl-. f5 is lie t.sfw?l rlriv,iuo .'."!? . .j r.j-r. it U biev.-.'!
