Minne Lusa Sewer
Of Unique Design
Commissioner Jardine, in charge of
the public, improvements department,
is trying out a new idea in connection
with the twelve-foot storm water
sever being constructed along Minne
Lusa avenue. The sewer is twelve
feet across and seven and one-half
feet deep, of box type. A twenty-foot
paved roadway will rest directly on
top of the sewer and the connection
between sewer and roadway will be
such that in times of unusual flow in
the sewer the excess flow may be
, carried off by means of surface drain
age without damage to manholes, as
ireejuentiy nappens in times of un
' usual rainfall.
z A twenty-foot roadway will be laid
on the avenue east of Jhe sewer and
between the two roadways will be a
thirty-ieven-foot parkway.

In the preparation of this volume,
the purpose continually in the mind
of the author has been to afford a
simple and convenient reference book
of the ornamental trees and shrubs
and plants hardy in this climate; sim
ple, yet concise, a guide valuable not
only to a amateur, but to the busy
architect, gardener or plantsman as
well. Its form has been suggested
by the needs encountered during a
long period of private and commercial
association with plants, when the ma
terial here set forth would at times
have been most useful. The author
has earnestly endeavored to include-l
whatever information the average
householder needs to enable him to
make a selection of such trees and
plants as are best adapted to his pur
posts, and to aid him in properly
caring for the grounds about his

The known references of precious
stones in Shakespeare's works with
comments as to the origin of his ma
terial, the knowledge of the poet con
cerning precious stones and references
as to where the pTecious stones of his
time came from. As no' writer has
made a more beautiful and telling use
of precious stones in his verse than
did Shakespeare the author believed
that if these references could be gath
ered together for comparison and for
quotation and if this were done from
authentic and early editions of the
great draThatist-poet's works, it would
give the literary and historical student
a better understanding as to what
gems were used in Shakespeare's time
and in what terms he referred to them.
ThisMias been done here and compari
sons are made with precious stones of
the present time, showing what mines
were known and gems were worn in
Shakespeare's day, and also some
thing of those that were not known
then, but are known at this time.

This vivid portrayal of "The Presi
dent of the United States," which ap
pears now for the first, time in sepa
rate form, was written by Woodrow
Wilson when he was president of
Princeton university in 1908. At that
time he had no thought that he would
occupy the great office of which he
wrote. It is, therefore, of peculiar
interest to note how theory and prac
tice have met.

.Before all modern Europe was in

was wont to speculat on war and its
effects witness his play, "The War
God." Now, he writes a book about
war while England, where he makes
his home, is in the heat of battle, And.
as was to be expected, he does not
say the conventional thing he has
new ideas and he is unafraid. He
goes at his subject resolved to be
frank and honest with himself and
his readers. Altogether the volume
is a unique and permanent addition
to literature. 'i
