THE TIMES-NEW- NEPIII. UTAH S, I had no thought but that I could escape. That thebe waters were for me the very face of death, sure and relentless, terrible and slow, did not ut once seize hold upon my heart. Frantically I sprang for the entrance on the cove. The floor of the cave was sloping and the water deepened swiftly as I advanced. Soon I was floundering to my knees, and on the Instant a great wave rushed in, drenching me to the waist, dazing nie with Its spray and uproar, and driving me back to the far end of the cave. With a dreadful hollow Bucking I stagsound the surge retreated. gered toward the. archway that was my only door to life.

(Prepared by the United States Department of Agriculture.) One of the characters In an early-da- y American romance of the time then the "stamp act" was causing all kinds of trouble Is recorded as declaring that New Xork never would be a real business city because Broadway and Maiden Lane were lined with trees. The Vun Vrooms, the Stuyve- sants, the Artavelts, nnd other early settlers of the country saved fine trees about their homes, on the village greens, along the country roads, and In the fields. But one will see no trees nowadays on Broadway, and Maiden Lane has been transformed refrom the pleasant, gion of Dutch homes with flower gardens into the busiest wholesale Jewelry district In America, If not In the world. Beauty and comfort gave way to the inroads of commerce, not only In New York but In most of America's great cities, so that today trees in a business street nre a rare sight. There are villages In New Engtowns In New land ; maple-shadt- d York and the Ohio val.'ey, and there streets to be seen In the are oak-tre- e southeastern states, but for the most part this refers only to small towns or cities never to the congested centers of population where they should have been preserved. Washington, the national capital, is one of the exceptions, and even there the plantings were not always wisely arranged. The tree growth In the streets of the average American town or city is ragged and unkempt In appearance, while that of the suburb or small village often Is not much better, unless the planting has been done under municipal control, nnd the plantings on a street have been confined to a single kind of tree. The telegraph, the telephone, the electric light, and the trolley car have added their share toward the mutilation or destruction of the good trees that were In existence at the time of their coming. Faulty methods of pruning have caused disfigurement and ruin. "Success follows the careful planting of good trees which are glr'flh adequate tree-border- elra-shad- k, DIGNIFIED MILLINERY WITH DEFINITE LINES 'Close-pucke- self-contr- iM: ; thrwi-fceiiin- xv it -- r''l imm-fl)le- J. it puz-'Kle- ant-mn- rocks,-borfcjn- -- g (nth , Narrow Upright Trees (Lombardy Poplars) on a Narrow Street in" Washington, D.

The bulletin Insists that providing shade on city streets is as much a municipal function as providing lights or sidewalks and should, therefore, be cared for by public ofllcIuU. Probably the most efficient way of arranging for proper supervision, it suys, is through an unpaid commission of three or five members which In turn employs an executive officer. Methods of orgnnlEution are" described, and numerous Illustrations show bow trees should be planted. There are chap, ters also describing pruning, spraying, transplanting, and other subjects ot Importance to every town or city whether It hss trees or wishes to have them.
