A foot of playground Is worth an acre of penal Institutions.
That is the sentiment expressed a few days ago at a meeting of the
City club of Philadelphia, when the Importance of municipal recreation
was being discussed. One of the speakers, an official of the park de-
partment, related an Incident that beurB out the truth of the epigram.
He observed a group of boys playing on the turf that had just been put
down by the gardeners engaged In improving a square. When he re-
proved them, one of the boys answered: "I gueBs you are right, Mister;
there's not room enough In this square for us and the grass, too. But
where can we play?"
That was the protest and plea of thousands of children not in Phila-
delphia alone, but in Atlanta, and In every other city that Is growing
rapidly and developing new needs. Play 1b as essential to youth as food
is to toiling men—essential to the health of mind and soul as well as
body. Dirt has been called matter out of place. Badness among children
is largely Impulse and energy mlBdirected. A vast deal of juvenile crime,
If the term "crime" may be used In this connection, Is traceable to a lack
of adequate playground and recreation facilities.
It 1b the children who play In the streets that cause most trouble
to parents and to the community. But few children play In the streets
from choice. Most of them who play there do so simply because the city
has failed to provide for their needs. Statistics gathered In many cities
show that In neighborhoods where playgrounds are established there 1b
a minimum of Juvenile offenses, but that in crowded districts where
playgrounds are not conducted, there are all sorts of mischief and misde-
meanors. And the records show, furthermore, that accidents and Injuries
to children are fewest where playgrounds are provided.
This Is a matter that no city which has due regard for Its present
and future interests can afford to neglect. Every dollar spent upon parks
and playground systems is repaid a thousand times over in health and
sound morals, and in the fostering of all those qualities that make for
good citizenship.—Atlanta Journal.
C. S. Barrett. president of the Farmers National union, Bounds the
usual, but none the lees timely, warning to farmers not to plant too much
cotton. He finds evidences of a disposition to commit this old mistake;
and it is conceivable that the rains, by destroying the corn which has been
planted, may lead to even further enlargements of the areas already set
apart for cotton. "Are you planting your cotton in this good year of
1914 with a view to making your corn, your wheat, your potatoes, your
hay, your meat and all the other things which mean your very sinews of
life; or are you going ahead blithely unconscious of that and planting
every acre you can get ready to cotton?" inquires Mr. Barret- "Hog and
hominy! Homely, but expressive phrase; the very heart and soul of the
farmer's welfare. Are you working to have the hog and hominy at hoim
and not in the warerooms of your supply merchant?"
Farmers «tre assured that it is not too late yet, and are urged to
clean out the fence corners, the briar patches along the branches or
ditches, and to plant stuff that means their independence—com, potatoes,
peanuts, yams, sorghum, peas, garden truck anything to insure their liv-
ing at home and boarding at the same place.
It is quite true that th > prosperous neighbor, as a rule, is the man
who makes cotton a secondary consideration, whose corn crib is bursting,
whose wheat bin is overflowing, whose smokehouse is filled with home-
raised meat, whose table is laden with home-grown vegetables, and whose
6tock and cattle and hogs are sleek and fat with produce grown on his
farm. And that man raises cotton, too; and his cotton crop puts money
into his pocket instead of into the pocket of the supply man.
Farming becomes speculative and less safe as a business whenever
the farmer decides to adopt the policy of raising cotton to pay for his
food and feed supplies. When he does that he submits to both those who
buy his cotton and those from whom ho must buy bacon, corn, hay and
other supplies the privilege of making for him the prices both ways. He
sells his cotton crop at the prices fixed by the buyer and often under a
pressure that can not be avoided or resisted. He has bought during the
year—or must buy when his crop is sold—expensive supplies, such as
corn aud meat, under the most unfavorable conditions. The price he pays
for meat or corn is never made by him, and he usually needs to buy large
quantities of costly provisions at the very season when crops are uncer-
tain, the risk great, confidence weak, and prices at the top.
There can be found nothing like independence and lasting prosperity
in a system that has its basis in cotton gambling. It is just about as
hazardous to gamble in spots as it is to gamble in futures. The farmer
who buys all his suppliea on credit and sets in to raise a cotton crop to
pay for them is really gambling in both futures and spots. He carries a
double risk, and has no possible means of hedging. If this farmer would
first look out for his own supplies and arrange to produce at home what
he needs for his own consumption, in this way he could cut out some
middlemen's profits and avoid certain of his greatest misfortunes and pen-
alties Such a change would enable him to hold his cotton until prices
are fair, and would in other ways tend to make his business and his
life more regular and prosperous- Dallas News.

There have been many plans to
force the habit of thrift upon people
otherwise careless of their savings,
but it is doubtful if any othe. system
excels that which a man voluntarily
assumes when he decides to acquire
ownership of his own home by means
of monthly payments, covering prin-
cipal and interest of the loan.

Hard to Refrain From Admiring In*
Benuity of This Little Wash-
ington Girl.
Audrey was thirteen, but a big girl
for her age, according to the Washing-
ton Herald. Yet she was still a child
in her absorbing taste for sweets. Not
far from her home the food show,
which is held annually in Washing-
ton, was going on, and the idea that
there were pounds of cakes, Jellies and
chocolates all ready to be eaten occu-
pied her mind every morning as she
wended her way to school past the
building. This preoccupation of
thought resulted in arithmetic in
which four quarts equaled one yard,
and Napoleon crossed the Rubicon on
the ice in history lessons. But Aud
rey was a modern girl, and soon found
a way out of her trouble.
Saturday she decided to put her plan
into execution. Mother had gone to
work at the treasury, and Audrey was
monarch of all Bhe surveyed literally.
She could not get into the food show
without being accompanied by an
adult- Now, adults in such cases be-
ing regarded as necessary evils, the
girl determined to be one herself for
the occasion.
Down at the ten-cent store she
bought a diamond ring and a smaller
one of plain gold. Then she hied home,
arrayed herself in her mother's best
suit, put on a picture hat with a big
veil and went to the food show. The
doorkeeper passed her In unnoticed in
the crowd of others streaming in, for
the figure seemed that of a short wom-
an. Inside, Audrey did her duty. There
was not a bit of food in the house ehe
did not sample, nor a cake nor candy
of which she did not bring away speci-
mens. When she went home she was
one of the fullest and happiest chil-
dren in Washington. And yet men
talk about woman's lack of inventive
cxecutor and trustee named in said
| will.

Every normally constituted man
has the ambition some time to own
the roof over his head. It is the best
way to live.
To accomplish this object, the
average man who must depend large-

nation to overcome all obstacles.

This followed the invitation to din-

after dinner dancing, either at home
or at one of the popular resorts, is
imperative. It is not wholly bad form,
however, to take one or two nights off
weekly—counting Sundays—provided
the time thus stolen from the dance is
devoted to picking up new steps and
new figures.
Cabarets or theaters are the only
places these may be acquired cheaply
if one is an adept. Dancing masters
are so overworked teaching rudiments

Would Penetrate the Earth.
One of the most ingenious projects
for harnessing the forces of nature is
that conceived by Sir William Ram-
say, and, despite Its daring mature, it
has been well received in high sci-
entific circles.
His plan is to take the heat of the
earth's interior by means of huge bore
holes. These shafts would be sunk
deep into the earth so that they pene-
trated Into large coal seams. By
means of electricity this coal would
be fired until it burned like some
wonderful infernal furnace. By means
of pipes the gas given off by this
burning coal would be conveyed to
the surface and in various ways util-
ized for power purposes.
The advantage of this scheme is
that power could be derived from coal
as It lay In its natural element, and
the cost of mining It and bringing it
up to the surface would be avoided.

Not so long ago Jack London was
lunching with friends in Philadelphia.
When the fish course arrived he
caused a semi-panic among the wait-
ers by asking that his fish be served
entirely raw.
The novelist ate it that way with
much relish, telling his friends that
compared with a cooked fish, the raw
article was Just as delicious as a raw
oyster or a clam.
