S'Oiir reporter "tool*   a  stroll through

to lieaiity.   Passing lhe   residence    of
IV. U.-Ross, M. P. Vii be saw in the
yard      a mmtber  01"  roses in  bloom,
and'byinvitalionoi  Mrs. Stcwait.be.
took   a   stroll through   the   yard   and
noted lhe    many  different  rose's    and
oilier flowers.   There  were  deep crimson  vescs,  pink  roses, and  roses, lhat
were white; some' in lull bloom   and
some just on the tip-toe of -blossoming    out like their .  earlier    companion-;,   llrs. Ross   has   Virginia   creepers', thai   have   climlied  half   way   to
Uie rooi of lhe -yei*aiu*jah- and ciicum-

creepers by half.   It  is better   to  lie
a runner (hart a creeper if you are., a
vim* and want lo, get up in the world
The-reporter noticed a small patch
of protai'c potatoes in'the'.backyard
, h.-dgtii in by poppies, sweet peas and
nasturtiums ' * ond a pile of.. rocks,
which ..was made to smile like a sun-
*beam by being embraced and kissed
and entwined by', nuMurtiuiiis in all

Alderman '.Tultle, many young lawns
are,lending their verdure to cheer
lhc- vision, of tlle passer, and sweet
peas, uastiirtiuuis, pansies and inany
others arc lo be seen in profusion,
where a very* few years ago stumps
and trees a-JMinnlded. Mrs. Tuttle
showed the stroller a fnll-lilown rose
which measmed a little more than
five" .inches in diameter, which slie
had taken lrom.a small Ijjjsli piantcd
this spring in her front yard.'   0
'At Edgjccli'I many lave the flowers lo

of little .lawns, which   the .owner hai'

have placed   loo  much   confidence    ii
the watchfulness  of    other . ollicials
and has    neglected  to fence    in    hi-
little corner pf creation.   One day nr
old cow . slipped     into this invitiu
little retreat    iu    search of cowslip
and succeeded in pulsing a whole 1
of. tulips  inward bound,  through her
owa two lips, Ix'l'ore. the ollicial coul,',
Hitcrfcrc,  with what  seemed   to    tin
citw to be a pleasant pastime. However, this .slipping   tendency'of   'tli**

the 'ilipping of a five-dollar hill from
