BEAUTIES OF NATURE
It may be observed that what we
call beauty of nature is mainly
negative beauty; that is, the mass,
the huge rude background, made
ap of recks, trees, hills, moun
tains. plains, water, has not beauty t
as a positive character, visible
to all eyes, but affords the mind
the conditions of beauty, namely,
health, strength, fitness, etc.,
beauty being an experience of the
beholder. Some, things, on the
other- hand, ns flowers, foliage,
J>rilliant colors, sunsets, rainbows,
waterfalls, may be said to be
beautiful in and of themselves;
but how wearisome the world
would be without the vast nega
tive background upon which these
things figure and which provokes
and stimulates the mind In a way
the purely fair forms do not!

Two Cities Break World Records
In Giving Rebates to Taxpayers
From the Christian Science Monitor.
Knoxville, Tenn., recently gave its taxpayers a pleasant surprise
by declaring a dividend of 10 per cent, for them in the shape of a
rebate on their taxes for the current fiscal year of the city. The
total sum was $280,000, a surplus saved out of the expenses of run
ning the city’s business for the year. This achievement was
ascribed by Knoxville—and the explanation was generally accept
ed—to the fact that the city’s affairs are run on the city manager
plan and that the town had selected an efficient business head.
Now comes a much larger city, Baltimore, with a similar story.
Its mayor announces that by Jan. 1, 1925, the city will have a sur
plus of $1,500,000 over and above the amount of current taxes that
will have been collected at that time and also a surplus of $1,0(K),>
000 in collections of arrearages, penalties, and interest, making a
grand total, which the citizens will surely consider “grand,” of
$2,500,000. The dividend that the citizen stockholders of Balti
more will receive will also take the form of a reduction of the tax
rate of approximately 10 per cent.
The mayor declares that this financial showing is the result of
putting all the departments of the municipal government on a bus
iness basis. There will be large savings in department appropria
tions for this year and in other accounts, he says, which are likely
to increase the total surplus to $3,000,000, but the dividend that
the city will be in a position to declare will be based on tax collec
Without a doubt the mayor is right in attributing Baltimore’!
good fortune to the employment of business methods only in all
the affairs of the city. Coming so soon after the Knoxville record
made under the city management system, the Baltimore achieve
ment in a city with a mayor and the ordinary kind of municipal
government is especially interesting and encouraging. It shows
that it is not so much the system used that produces such unusual
but excellent results in city financing as it is the employment of
sound business methods by officials who know how to use them and
are sincerely in earnest in putting them into effect in all branches
of municipal affairs.
Baltimore officials are naturally inclined to boast of their per
formance and to call attention to the fact that their success was
made with a regular and ordinary form of city government, and
not, as in the case of Knoxville, through any experimental city
manager plan. Here is a chance for an enlivening and most profit
able race or contest among American cities. Supposing a number
of big towns with common or garden styles of government should
start in to prove that they can use business methods and save mor<
money than municipalities that employ city managers. Supposing
the city manager cities should take up the challenge and do their
best to show that this could not be done, but that their way wae
the only one that would produce the desired results.
What an entertaining competition this would be and what im
mense profit it would bring to the taxpayers of cities that entered
