The motives that persuade the
householder to start in spring a back
yard garden are perhaps more
philosophical than mercenary. Many
men have a contemplative and pastoral
liking for "seeing things grow." The
culture of infant beans and potatoes
offers something of the same pleasure
that comes from raising babies or
dogs. Rattle with pests and obdurate
soils is a -game of wits. When the
harvest is reached there is a satisfac
tion in your good mess of "garden
truck" not to be had from any vegeta
ble bought of the grocer. The cost of
food has reached a point where the
money motive ought also to tempt a
good many people who possess a back
yard to raise a garden.
It is often said that these little
home gardens do not pay, that after
ycu have deducted cost of fertilizer
and seeds and labor hired, that you
have nothing left. It is true that a
fi"st year attempt shows many fail
ures. Mother Nature is a shy sort of
a customer. It takes experience and
practice to adapt your beans, peas or
pquashes to her habits. Once you
l,earn the game, the power of sun and
soil and rain are sure. Many of us
have become too adverse to physical
labor. As boys most of us dug and
hoed in our father's gardens and
thought nothing of it. As men we hire
some superannuated laborer to work
over the land, who charges us $2 per
day for what an active man could do
in half the time. No wonder there is
no credit account at the end of the sea
son. Any indoors worker will be sur
prised, if he will give four or five
hours a week to back-yard agriculture,
to find out how much better muse'e,
wind and digestion he has at the end
of the summer. There may be no
money profit the first time. Another
summer should give you all the fresh
vegetables of the season for practical
ly nothing. '

M. S. GRIGGS TO GREAT

PERTY ON SIXTH STREET
UNCLE BEN BECKMAN
SERVES AS ROAD OVER
SEER NINETEEN YEARS
The board of county commissioners
closed their session this morning, af
ter two days in looking after the coun
ty business. Among other matters
taken up by the board was the grant
ing of a license to Howard W. John
son for the operation of a pool hall in
the village of Manley during the com
ing year. The reports of fees collect
ed for the first quarter were received
from the county clerk, who reported
the sum of $250 collected, while the
clerk of the district court reported
some $470.90 had been received at his
office. The register of deeds reported
that in his office $097.85 had been
taken in. A petition was also re
ceived by the board from the residents
of West Rock "Bluffs precinct asking
that Ben Beckman be appointed as
road overseer in district No. 10, and
the same was . placed on file by the
board. Mr. Beckman, who had held
the office for nineteen years, retired
from office last January, but the peo
ple seem desirous of having him take
up the duties of the position again.
Among the improvements planned
in the city during the coming weeks
is that of M. S. Briggs on South Sixth
street, who has secured the services of
F. Clugy to remove thejarge bank
of dirt at the corner of Sixth and
Granite streets, just east of the resi
dence of Mr. Briggs. For years the
residence on the lot has stood perched
up far above the level of the street
and has not been a very profitable in
vestment, but Mr. Briggs will have
the lot graded down and will probably
put up a new residence there in the
near future. The dirt that is to be
removed .will be placed on the resi
dence property of John Nemetz to
make a much-needed fill on the north
of his residence, and by this the whole I
neighborhood will profit to some, ex
tent from the improvement. uch
movements as these add greatly to the
appearance of things in that section
of the city. Let the good work go on.
Iiu Spring lisirfliliii
will be shown on special display at our store during the
week beginning Monday, April 5th. If you are interested
in any of these goods, call and we will show you our com
plete line. These are oil beautiful patterns and we ofT r
them at popular prices.

This morning the persons on Main
street were greatly surprised to see
the patrol wagon of Claus Boetel drive
up Main street with the form of some :
wanderer resting in the bottom of the '.
wagon, and the man was taken to the 1
city jail, where he was placed under !
leck and key. The police were notified
this morning that there was some per- 1
son lying near the old brewery near j
the pumping station, and Chief Rainey
at once hastened to the scene with '
Claus and his trusty patrol wago;i.
and the weary stranger, who was suf
fering from an overload of alcohol,
was placed in the wagon and the re
turn trip commenced. The ride in
the wagon down through the tracks
was a decidedly rough one and by the
t'me the party arrived in the city the
follower of Bacchus had his supply of
liquid refreshments pretty well

Appearing elsewhere in this issue is
an account of the laudable work of R.
L. Propst in cleaning up the streets
which had been dirtied to some extent
by the spilling of crushed rock out of
the wagons in which it was being
hauled to his ots on Vine street. If
others in the city who have occasion to
use the streets wuold be as careful
n seeing that whatever debris or dirt
they create is cleaned up it certainly
would add very much to lessening the
work of cleaning up the streets. Mr.
Propst is setting an example that is
