GOOD FOR CHILDREN.
Value of 8chool Pluygrounds as As-
sarted by Parents.
The following inny tie of Interest as
showing the Impressions that parent;
get of the value of the playground in-
fluence on their children, suys the Leaf-
let (Mass.) Civic League. They are U,-
"It kept him off the streets, and I
knew where he was." "Seemed per
fectly happy all through the sumrne
school term." "Was better able to be
gin Ills school studies." "Increased Ilia
happiness by having something to do."
"Kept him out of mischief." "Kept his
mind occupied." "Had his own gar
den nt home and took caro of It, some-
thing he was not Interested in before."
"Helped him at school." "Made good
use of things he learned." "Was much
Interested in Insects." "Enjoyed him
self every day." "Was more agree
able, as he had something to think of."
"Set him thinking." "Made home life
more Interesting In constructing things
he saw at school." "Made him more
ambitious." "Made him Interested In
his learning." "Made a pigeon coop,
studied birds a good denl and butter-
flies." "Made him brighter and quick
er." "Made him good in his manners."
"Plil him n good deal of good In his
character and disposition."
These are typical of many expres-
sions uSed by parents who felt that
their boys were through the play school
heneilted rather than Injured by the
long vacation. They are by no means
exhaustive of what might be said In
summary of the value of playgrounds
for country children, but tliey certainly
will prove suggestive to those who are
concerned about the children of the
streets of our country towns.

Where the Impulse to Improve Must
Get Its Start.
Village art lu America must be the
fruit of education, says the Chicago
Post. England has a Garden City asso-
ciation that pursues Its educational
schemes through "drawing room meet-
ings." The Impulse to Improve must
have Its beginnings In the public spirit
of a group of townspeople. If the old
fashioned revival spirit, with Its enthu-
siasm for good works, can be awak-
ened in any neighborhood, the passion
for tree planting, lawn making, flower
gardens and fountains will find many
The average suburban town masquer-
ading under the name of a village suf-
fers In the first Instance by the rules
of subdividing n farm and the con-
tract system of building rows of inele-
gant houses to fit fifty foot lots. The
artistic hand has the problem of drap-
ing tills angular frame In shrubber •.
trees and vines. Owing to the variable
quality of human nature it is folly t >
hope that each villager will do ills
share. The neglectful and thought loss
will always be with us, and the group
bent on village art must overlook the
ninety and nine to follow the Ideals of
the one Just man who has learned t.i
love the rewards of beauty.
Beneath the fact of making streets,
houses and lawns agreeable and at-
tractive to the eyes and the other fact
of Increasing the property value there-
by is the moral influence of inviting
home surroundings and recreation
Town Beauty Scheme.
The first move In the plan to make
York, Ta., the "city beautiful" was
made recently when under the auspices
of the York assembly of the Dauphin
Institute, assisted by public spirited
citizens, Professor Zueblin of Chicago
university delivered his lecture on
"The Twentieth Century City, or the
City York Ought to Be," says t!i
Municipal Journal and Eugineer. Pro-
fessor Zueblin would have the city by
its regularly constituted bodies or
through its public spirited citizens lay
out a definite plan of action, a plan
that would provide for parks, sewers,
the elimination of poles, the beautify-
ing of the lawns, the prevention of cor
poratlons from doing as they please in
tearing up streets, street car conges
tlon In the public square and n hundred
and one everyday common sense rem-
edies that most citizens have long been
aware of, yet fall to get nt the founila
tlon of, for lack of a general plan of
action. Professor Zueblin would have
the city fathers, official or real, decide
on what they want In the years t <
come and then "go after It," so that the
future generations may take up the
work that has been started and carry
It to completion.
Shopping Cure for Melancholia.
There Is nothing finer for the ten*
per than a new hat, no balm for hurt
feelings like a fresh gewgaw; ordering
new frocks takes a woman out of her-
self, and melancholia may be swiftly
relieved by a good doSe of "dainties"
In the form of lingerie. Cut a woman
off her shopping, and the result may
be disastrous.—London World.
The Engadine Is a famous valley In
the Swiss canton of Orisons, and ona
of the loftiest Inhabited regions of
Europe. It extends northeast for about

Food for Dreams.
"Eating has nothing to do with the
nightmare," declared the studio girl
"I can go to a pink Ink table d'hote,
eat a dinner a mile long and sleep like
a log; hut the nights I cook a bite of
steak and onions over my own gas
stove I wake up screaming."
Nothing Else to Shake.
As he glanced at the note telling
him that his wife had gone home to
her mother a convulsive sob shook
his frame. And that was all there
was of him for the convulsive sob to
shake. Inasmuch as he was the living
skeleton In a dime museum.
Why We Dress.
Fine clothes do more than provide
a decent appearance for the wearer,
says the New York Sun. They give
her or him a sense of well-being
which assists and multiplies amiabil-
ity, and thus conduces to the comforf
of the world at large.
One Argument for Good Roads.
One way to get a man Interested In
good roads is to get him to drive ovei
country roads as they now are. If h
does not then become an enthusiast

Individual Tree Planting on Streets.
In view of the extensive planting of
trees on streets which is done it is sur-
prising to woo the mismanagement or
lack of any management whatsoever
existing in most of onr cities and
towns, says the Los Angeles Times.
Every one plants to suit himself, hav-
ing a favorite tree of his own, and
ninety times out of a hundred no provi-
sions are made to promote the exist-
ence of the newly planted tree. A hole
Is dug and the tree buried in it, and
that is the end. The proper remedy
lies in a good state law or town ordi-
nance that will prevent Irrational
treatment of public highways.

Governmental Business Ways.
In paying dividends on government
stocks the British government takes
no account of fractions of a penny. In
this way it makes alkout $7,500 a year

It Is safe to assume that the man
