SHOP SURROUNDINGS Employees ef Plant Combining Beauty and Commercialism- The appearance of many towns and cities is spoiled by unkempt surround ings of business sites and seldom is any attempt made to Improve and beautify these places The plan is being tried in Brooklyn N L how ever to interest the employees of a company In Improvement work and the story of how an esprit de corps came to replace a dont care feeling in the personnel of one of the largest sin gle traction concerns In the country is an interesting one Some time ago the Brooklyn Rapid Transit company adopted a policy of beautifying as far as possible the dif ferent portions of its property It was a pet Idea of Mr Winter its president that the mere fact that a struc ture is built for commercial purposes is no excuse for its being hideously uglyThis was quite a reversal of old tra ditions but it has already gone partly into effect The great new Wllllams burg power station is the companys most striking exposition of this new policy Beginning was made at the construc tion shop of the elevated lines at the foot of Thirtyninth street The yard that surrounds this shopformerly a passenger terminal stationwas clean ed of the litter of old locomotives and discarded coaches These were sold when possible and given away for fire wood In other cases Last spring the shop foremen were informed that the railroad would proceed to lay out the edge of the yard with grass plots and flower beds Sim liar steps were taken at the other elevated shops at East New York Fresh Pond road and at Thirtysixth street The same methods of decorat on that proved so successful oh the companys property at Brighton Beach were put hi effect Then came the surprising part of the programme Shopmen displayed an astonishing amount of interest in the plans for beautifying tile property They organized mtoxband ajad early on summer nights reported after hours for work on the shop grounds Theirs was entirely a voluntary procedure They showed an interest in the wholq project It was a new spirit showing Itself Nor was that all The men from latheand plane and drill press worked alongside the laborers and then they got together with the shop foremen and made a new proposal Lets buy big flags big fine Amer ican flagsto float over every shop of this company and show folks when they go riding by that there are good Americans working under the roofs So the big movement started The men all wanted i to BUbscribo nickel ii dimes andckn occasional quarter wero the order of the day and when they were done theiorementoppeAVoff the list for

These efforts have been stimulated by the panicky times Residents of agricul tural communities should understand that concentration of money in large financial centers was the main cause of bringing on the financial depression They should also understand that the mall order system is one of the most potent factors in this concentration that this system draws the lifeblood the surplus money from

miles 400 of which is water The streams within the State as a rule head in the Southeast and flow in a Northwesterly direction this fact retarded the con struction of railroads and the devel opment of our resources for many yearsThe early railroads were built from the East and went over the more level territories Northof the Ohio River and South of the Cumberland Mountains In those days there was only a limited demand for coaland lumber Now that the demand has increased It would seem that a kind providence has held in reserve our almost inexhaustible util ities until a time when they are most needed by the country Our supply of timber is limited but there is enough to last for many years to comeWe have a coal area of over fifteen thousand square miles Other min erals await development

account of his wide expe rience as Editor Author and Manufac t highostuthorityall inquiries to William A Radford No onlyencloseMany hous foremerly considered superfluous are now receiving careful planning in detail by architects In fact architects are com plaining that the many small house details run into so much extra work and eat up so much more time than the old style structure work that an Increase of fees must follow Men who formerly charged five per cent on thecost of a building are now getting n and ten per cent Not only are the different rooms pjamfed more carefully and the parti tions fitted with ventilating flues sound deadeners and the new win dows patent sliding doors and a hun dred other inventions are required but houses nowadays are often fitted up with two kinds of heaters one to warm the house and the other to heat the water so that hot water may be kept on tap for use at anylour night or day the year through Then the finish in different rooms varies and each style is carried out in the dif ferent details to match All good houses are piped for gas and wired for electricity and often gas and electric fixtures enter into a general decora tive plan that must harmonize down to the minutest detail in color as well as form so that the selection of these accessories in accordance with the organized plan often takes up moreof the architects time than the strictly construction drawings of the whole building We are working more and more into the different conveniences that enter into modern household economy every year What is generally termed cabin t parts of houses are receiving more attention all the time A sideboard for instance is made in a large factory in accordance with certain de slgpa carefully selected to match the i tenor finish of the house These First Floor Plan sideboards are made in large quantities perhaps 50 or 100 of the same design being brought through at once so that the completed article may be bought much cheaper than it

you have such a place in which to keep it whe not in actual use The size of the house being 30 fee 6 inches in width by 40 feet 6 inches in length affords room enough for a good many extra conveniences that cannot be expected In a smaller design and the rooms are larger than ordinary A bathroom 8 feet 6 inches by 12 feet 6 Inches Is a luxury that very few people have Then if necessary two or three bedrooms may be built in the attic It depends a good deal on locatio- whether a house should be built wi the expectation of finishing the as a third story at some future time If the lot is fairly central on a street where transportation is especially good a house that is big enough for six or seven rooms will sell better or rent to better advantage than a smaller house On the other hand if the house is built well out toward the edge of town or in the suburbs less room is required but this is a fin cial study in house building that must be determined by the owner British Trade

1909 Marks Era of More Stringent Legislation Important Changes in Rules Calculated to Eliminate Different Styles ojIn some respects the present basket ball season is perhaps the most crucial which the sport has had to pass through since its innovation and lov ers of one of the most interesting of winter games are anxiously awaiting the judgment of the critics whose de cisionsat the end of the season will good way toward continuing in gfavor the present regulations and which have helped in placing basketball on the same plane with the other major spdrts During the past winter the intercol legiate rules committee in a meeting in New York came to the decision that some radical action was necessary to eliminate the tendency to roughness and save the same from degenerating ipto a modified form of football Al though the style of game played in the different sections of the country varied immensely and therefore a rule which suited one division was entirely unsat isfactory to another the committee succeeded In paSsing some rather startling rules and the result of the recent legislation is awaited with grave doubts by many enthusiasts It is only within the last few years that basketball has assumed a position of high rank among intercollegI- ate sports especially in the west and in the last two seasons particularly it theIsities Regarded formerly as a strenu ous form of girls play it has come to command respect as it has increased In popular favor Perhaps the most potent factor in bringing this situation partofof thorough preparation on the part of the players for the contests the neces sity of the most efficient coaching and long training to gain expertness Undoubtedly as the standard of play has been been raised basketball has gradually won over the followers of the more strenuous sports The adoption of intricate plays and signals as in football which require a great degree of skill acquired only by long and hard practice and the work of teams which have played for many seasons and therefore have reached a splendid point In development have helped to show to the public that the possibilities of basketball are scarcely less than those of the major outdoor sportsCoincident with its accession to a prominent place in college sports has come the need for careful and special legislation on the part of the athletic authorities A consistent policy followed by the coaches and players throughout the country and the intimate relations of one section to an other have helped to promote a Unity of action and control which is bound to lend added interest to the sport In this section the Western Inter collegiate association has been a strong influence in promoting the best interests of the game by controlling schedules holding meetings of coaches and players and officials for the study and discussion of the rules discouraging rough play and in aiding officials to keep the game clean As a result the standard of play Is high and the games while always earnestly contest ed are notably free from intentional roughness and fouling One of the greatest difficulties in making the new rules was caused by the difference in the style of play prev alent in the east aid west In the for mer section the play is close the dribble is used almost constantly and as a result opportunities for rough play intentional or otherwise are greatly increased and the officials are kept busy calling fouls The new legislation concerning the disqualification of a player when he has had five fouls called on him is expected to work both ways It is hoped that the rule will prevent the official from calling petty technical fouls and secondly to prevent intentional fouls against opponents who have not an accurate free thrower This rule was modified at the conference of western intercollegiate basket ball officials so that it requires five personal fouls to disqualify thus removing from the list of fouls which count for disqualification those which are of a technical character and suffi ciently penalized by giving the opponents a free throw Another very important provision was that made requiring two floor officials the idea being to have a man to watch and prevent the making of fouls in the back part of the field where the referee cannot see Believ ing that many troubles arose from the poor work of officials the committee also formed a central board of offi comaTigers Buy Mprlarlty President F J NaTin of the Detroit American league baseball club has NewYorkGeorge MorIarity who wilt play third base for Detroit The amount of

authorization for some years claiming that the carrying of parcels would go a long way toward eliminating the postal deficit V It is further asserted that the par eels post is in the interest of the farmer and the rural store keeper The most strenuous opposition to i the plan has come from the great ex press companies Who see in it a menace to their business Another element opposing lips been fj the small merchants in the country town who have been afarid that suchr increased postal facilities would help the great mail order houses This Objection has been met by the Post master Generals suggestion limiting the kind and character of the par eels carried and the territory from which they could be sent iThis experiment begins in the same way as the rural delivery system After much

vii 59Com mentary by Rev D M Stearns Copyright 1003 by American Press Association We have in this book of the Acts the history of the beginning of the church the body of Christ gathered from Jews and gentiles by the Spirit through the apostles and others who were used as well as the apostles such as Stephen and Philip men who were chosen and set apart to oversee the ministration of funds to the poor but who being filled with the Holy Spirit were used mightily In preaching the word Our Lord Jesus said concern ing His church The gates wisdpm power of hell shall not prevail against saytbut just the contrary So He instrUct- ed the prophets centuries before Jer I 19 Ezek II 6 There are always enemies without but sometimes the trouble gets within the church as in the case of Ananias and Sapphira Now it is a case or many cases of dissatisfaction on the part of some being ministered to from the common fund The twelve therefore called the dis ciples together and appointed seven men full of the Holy Ghost and wis dom to see to these matters Stephen a man full of faith and of the Holy Ghost being what we would call chair man of the committee The apostles gave themselves to the word and pray er and the disciples multiplied greatly and many o the priests followed So whether It was prayer and preaching or serving tables the Spirit wrought and God glorified in them We must be Spirit filled for every kind of service even the lowliest if we would truly serve the Lord Happy are those who can look up into His face and say For any manner of service wholly at Thy commandment I Chron xxviil 21 To accept meekly and cheerfully whatever He appoints us and hear it or do it unto the Lord and before the Lord is all He asks of us and to continue therein till He calls to something else Stephen hav ing accepted the lowly and difficult service is soon found working mir acles and so speaking that those who heard were unable to resist the wis dom and tbe spirit by which he spake Such manifestation of the power of the risen Christ so stirs the adversary that Stephen is arrested and brought before the council and false witnesses lay to his charge things that he was wholly Innocent of While he was be ing thus treated like His Lord the Lord must have been smiling upon him for the reflection was seen in his face which seemed to the council like the face of an angel Being permitted to speak for himself he rehearsed the national history from Abraham through Isaac Jacob Jo seph Moses and on to David and Solo mon and the temple and then to the Immortal Son of David the true tem ple He enlarged upon the ill trea ment of Joseph by his brethren and c Moses by the people whom he wa sent to deliver and then accused them to their face of being the murderers of Jesus as their fathers had been of the prophets Those to whom Peter preached were pricked in their hearts and asked what they should do and thousands repented and received Jesus as their Saviour and Lord II 36 37 but these were cut to the heart and gnashed their teeth stopped their ears cast Stephen out and stoned him to death Spirit filled Peter got 3000 souls but Spirit filled Stephen got stones enough to kill him and in each case God was glorified Although the young man at whose feet the wit nesses who stoned Stephen laid doWn their clothes continued his murderous career a little longer perhaps when we have clearer light on the connection between Stephens death and Sauls conversion we may see that Stephen through Saul won more souls than Peter The ways of the Lord are of ten to us a great deep but we are sure that as for God His way is perfect Ps xvlii 30 Spirit filled Stephen looked up steadfastly into heaven and saw the glory of God and Jesus and was able to pray for his murderers Lord lay not this sin to their charge If we look up into heaven as he did and see Jesus there for us we will not see our persecutors nor feel much the stones that are thrown at us We may so see Jesus and hear His voice that we shall be blind and deaf to all else This seventh chapter may be said to begin and end with the God of glory verse 2 and the glory of God verse H5 We shall not be apt to walk worthy of God who hath called us to His kingdom and glory I Thess li 12 unless that kingdom and glory are as real to us as the risen Christ was to Stephen This is one of the seven places in Scripture where we find the phrase heaven opened verse 56 the others being in Ezek i Matt ill John i Acts x Rev Iv and x and each time It is to show us something of Jesus or His redeemed A risen living Christ true man and true

years ago these were worn by many as watch charms Occasionally even now one may be seen thus worn Such minute engraving may well be consid ered skillful work But recently this has been made to seem at least by comparison quite a simple matter because Mr William L Stuart a young man engaged in busi ness in New York city has performed the seemingly impossible feat of en graving the entire Lords Prayer on the head of an ordinary pin to which he has added his name and the year making altogether 276 letters and figures says St Nicholas Mr Stuart did the work at odd times during his regular employment and with very ordinary tools which seemingly are not adapted to such fine engraving The pin was set in a block of wood and a common engravers tool was used A simple microscope costing only

discovered that the needle was will ful and America came near not being discovere for a century or two more in consequence But it has remained for modern mariners to discover the true pranks of the magnetic bit of steel When they boxed the compass on the United States battleship Maine II it was found that the supposedly trust worthy needle pointed southeast If the helmsman had laid out a course for Greenland by that compass he might have brought up all standing on the Cape of Good Hope The perversion of the magnet was explained by the undub attraction of a couple of steel turrets and a 12inch gun The mariner thereupon made allowance for this untoward influence and sailed the seas with entire preci sionThe growth of the merchant marine on the great lakes the introduction of steel
