"There's a Reason"
Washington's Clear Right to Title, "City Beautiful"
WASniNGTON. Washington Is tho city beautiful. In this second decade
of the twentieth centurv It realizes the dreams of Its founders. LKn-
font's plans have not been adhered to literally, but thcro has been n general
hewing to tho lino In the years of city
building and no radical departuro
from the nrtlstlc designs of tho great
engineer to whom George Washington
intrusted the laying out of the nntlon's
seat nnd Its scope of development. It
Is today the capital they Intended It
should be perhaps surpassing In
grandeur the most roseate vision of
that primitive day. It Is the distinc
tive American city tho city of cities,
destined to become increasingly beau
tiful under tho continued prodigal, yet
wise, paternalistic care of n proud and generous government. People speak
of Washington as "one of the most beautiful cities in tho world." There Is
no exaggeration In such encomium. Indeed, It falls short of full truth or
adequate prnlse. World travelers today unhesitatingly give Washington equal
ranit witn Paris, Berlin, Buenos Aires and nio. nnd some of thorn avow that
It eclipses all other capitals.
Beauty, however, Is not Washington's solllnry chnrm. The life of the fair
city Is altogether chnrralng. It is cosmopolitan. In its transformation It has
acquired n metropolitan air and carries It nnturally. B.v contrast tho pro
vincialism of Gotham stands out prominently, even glaringly. Washington
Goes not go tho mad pace of the greater city, docs not spend Its short days
In sordid money-making and Its longer, if flcicting, nights dining and dashing
to the thenters nnd' patronizing maudlin cabarets. Washington tnkos time to
Congress Takes Care of Banners of "Besiegers"
HEN the soldiers are relieved from duty In tho siege of n town do the
seneschnls of the watch tower come down to a little postern gate nnd
open a wicket nnd take In the lenguerlng unes that thoy may store their
weapons within the walls of their
Such thoughts as these ran through
my head only a few nights past at
something that took place in the house
of representatives office building,
writes Earl Godwin in tho Washington
You know there are always a pair
of suffrage sentinels standing guard at
tho corner of New Jersey nvenuo nnd
B street opposite the front door of
tho house ofllco building. They stand
thero with their banners dny after day, day after day. I doubt If any mem
ber of congress or nny one of the thousands of men who puss those banners
by could repeat properly tho words upon the purple and gold cloth, but, of
course, everyone knows the women are emulating soldiers standing guard on
n battle line; that they are besieging congress and will not raise the siege
until congress capitulates nnd pays a ransom in tho shape of universal suffrage.
Well, It was n night or two ago that I saw a skirt switching into a store
room in tho house ofllco building, and as I passed the switching skirt I
looked further nnd beheld an old employee of the building nnd the two suf
frage sentinels. Tho employee had just opened the door with his key and the
suffrage sentinels were in the act of leaning their banners against tho wall,
to be stored there for the night.
Which Is to lnugh 1 The soldiers stand about tho walls all. day, besieging
congress; nnd then when night comes, down fall the besiegers' banners, nnd
one of those within the walls opens the postern gate and takes Into the bosom
of the city tho very ones who are besieging It, that their weapons nnd banners
may be safe against the morrow.

Capital Is Waxing Enthusiastic Over Garden Plots
GARDENING will be tho principal sport In Washington this summer. At
vJ least that Is what H. M. Connolly, expert of the department of agriculture,
predicts. He says It will be more popular than golf or fishing. Just what tho
essentials of n successful garden are
"The first essential Is n gardener
who Is enthusiastic, willing and likes
the work. I met a man the other day
who had a plot 10 feet square and he
said if he could only find someone to
spado It up for him ho would tend to
m toty V v& K( L cT5 " nf forward. It Isn't likely that man
-m, w v v. . )i lckws i "would D n successful gardener be
. febAJf "o, 4k&i?&03B cause If ho was too indifferent to
r2v? wSX'r spade It up he would likely bo too in
different to enro for It afterward.
"The second Is soil. Of course, eomo soils are better than others and
make better gardens, but nil this talk about soils being too poor to make
gardens out of is bosh. A garden can be started on almost any sort of soil.
You can have a good garden on the stlffest sort of yellow clay or the most
porous sand. There Is no such thing ns a soil too poor for garden use.
"The third essential is the preparation of the soil. If you have n good,
rich loam that makes n fine garden you want to keep It In good condition.
You can plant rye on It in the fall, and put on a layer of manure, and then
spndo It under In the spring. It won't do any good to nut this layer on in
the spring. If you have a stiff clay soil that will not nbsorb water quickly
you should put coal ashes or something similar In the 'clay to loosen It up,
Then, you must spade It when It will crumble not when It Is soaking wet
or hard ns a rock. If you have a Bandy soil you want to get some loam In
It so that It will hold moisture.
Possible Explanation of Old Mare's Queer Name
RICKETY old colored man had drawn his horse to a curbstone to let tho
circus go by. The ancient mnre stood with n dejected patience that
somehow, implied humiliation at hnving to force the season In a rakish hor&fr

"Yes'ra., Suttlnly she knows sho

nobody's fool. Yes'm. County Cider
knows she gotter bonnet on, nn fur
thcrmo', she knows why huh, huh!"
The person nlso knows a story when It comes her way, and knows wluxt
to do with It, so she remarked that tho mnre had n rather queer name.
"Well'um, we thinks County Cider got n vchy fine nnme. It como outer
