Might Learn From Athenian,.
To hnve a grownup body of cltl7.cn.
In a town it is essential that local loy-
alty, local interdst, local pride, aug-
mented by local service, be Inculcated
and assigned their tasks.
Why not recall the spirit and mode
nf ancient Athens In her period of
highest civic power and grace? The
Athenian youth, on reaching his ma-
jority at eighteen years, was Intrusted
with a citizen's weapons, the shield
and spear, lie took his citizen oatli
at a public meeting in the temple of
DionysHis, where solemn rites to Zena
I the local divinities were observed
in with a drama. Among
tlio new Athenian citizen pledges was
this: "Not to leave my town in a
worse but In n better conditio than
I found it," Quincy L. Wood, in the
Chicago Dally News.

Petunias Single and Double.
Because of the ease and facility with
which all of the single-flowered
varieties of the petunia can be grown
from seed, this plant commands at-
tention as a worthy candidate for tho
summer flower garden. The young
plants grow rapidly and come Into
bloom early, and in addition to tills
they furnish a continuous wealth of
blossoms until destroyed by frost. The
large-flowered strains arc very beauti-
ful and of great variety.

Landscape Beauty Enli6ts an Aid.
The state of Michigan is embarking
on a gigantic tree-planting campaign,
not reforestation, but beautifying the
roads of the state. It is pleasing to
note that there Is one commonwealth
which is recognizing a long-felt need
In tills country. When a nation he-
gins to recognize itself as a landscape,
as well as farm land nnd town sites,
Its soul is beginning to awaken. Beauty
of nature costs little, aside from some
common sense planning and patient
execution. Here's hoping that more
states may follow Michigan's esampi*.
Give your neighbor credit for keel -
ing a secret. He hasn't told what he
knows about you.
