Such training has brought forth good fruit among their inhabitants, and made it possible for an ever decreasing proportionate area to yield a sufficiency for the increasing population. In France a man will not sacrifice a tree because it happens to be unsymmetrically located upon the space where he wishes to place his house; whether his house is plumb with the compass or must be set diagonally upon his lot is comparatively insignificant when considered in relation to the value of the tree. What would be thought of such an act in any of our communities, however advanced. is sufficient evidence of how far behind the French we are In true nature appreciation. How rigidly and successfully tree culture is practiced and encouraged in Germany we all know. Where would be now their splendid forests if the hand of the vandal had not bei n stayed ? The Woodland Improvement Club wants to contribute its mite toward the healthy and permanent growth of such sentiment in our nation. They wish to begin by enlisting the interests of every resident of our town in Arbor day.

On Washington’s birthday the Arbor clubs of Fresno, Malaga. Selma and Kingsburg set 2500 trees along the main thoroughfare of the county and in April will alternate them with an equal number of palms. We respectful ly suggest that when they set the palms they enclose the roots in good sized wire baskets. If there la anything on earth that tickles the palate of a gopher It is the crown root of a thrifty young palm tree. We are not informed what arrangements have been made for the care and protection of the young trees that happily started on what we trust may be long and useful lives, but we do not doubt that they are adequate. The poplars and balm of Gilead trees which have been planted lend themselves very well to the adornment of a perfectly straight avenue twenty-one miles long, and are remarkable rustlers. They will get water if it is to he had in the neighboring territory. Most varieties of palms are less vigorous growers. It is pleasant to see the spread of this tree-planting habit. The roadsides of California have been sadly neglected. Poison oak in the foothills and nothing in the valleys are about the usual roadside garniture. It has not looked well. In a state of such possibilities It is a shame to have an uninviting landscape. SUH all forms of art met money—outdoor art as well as other. The planting of the treee is only the beginning. They will require care for some years, for nothing looks worse than improvements” going to ruin. Nothing pleases a cow (letter than to take a young tree lo her horns and snap it off. No tree la too small for a horse to scratch against in fly time. This movement being generally In the honda of organized bodies. we presume that arrangements for caring for the trees are made. We hope to see the movement spread into every community In the state. Let ua beautify beautiful California.—Chronicle.
