Meeting. V. W. Flicking'er, city forester, made known to the members of the outdoor life department of the Woman's club, the projects to be carried out in the city parks and strests in the near future at a meeting Wednesday afternoon in the library assembly. "The work of a'city forester is much simpler and more practical if he is working under a city ordinance which provides for the protection and replacement of shadetrees. In this way the city would be reimbursed for trees which are destroyed. Only the desirable sort of trees would: be planted. The trimming would be done with an idea of preserving: the trees. Elms Are Good. "It is not practical to plant quick growing: trees such as poplars and cottonwoods. The longevity of a tree should be considered in choos ing. Elms make excellent stree shade trees--a long avenue of elmi Is quite like a cathedral nave. Elm are effective In framing a building: They are clean and their shade is not too dense. "The shade crown of .a hari maple is too dense. Too littl air circulates among the leaves an- it is often hard to get grass startec under it. "Hawthorns are attractive both in winter and summer. The! branching is interesting and in th spring they have a particularly at tractive purplish tinge. Jens Jensen designer and consultant for the Chi cago park system, has used th hawthorn to great advantage in his work and they are native t Iowa. Oaks May Be Used. "Oaks are good trees to be usei I in street, planning. They are slow growing as are all hard wood trees The linden, locust and ash trees ar also good because they are hardj enough to stand up under city con ditions. They are clean and they wir grow in a limited place where th soil may not be the best.

"If an older tree begins to loo unhealthy it may be that it neec food,. This can be provided by th insertion of any commercial fer tiltzer in holes bored at intervals o a foot around the edge of the shad area. Trimming Needs Expert. "Most people in trimming a tre regard it as a stick of wood. It i a living thing and should be treate as such. If the trimming is care lessly done disease may set in an the work of a tree surgeon is to expensive for a city. The late win ter is the time for pruning. "Mulching is an important pro cess in growing trees since it is safeguard against the alternat freezing and thawing that some times .occurs in the spring. Pin needles, straw or leaves may b used as mulch. Young trees shoul be given plenty of water and the should ha given the water in quan tltiei of from 15 to 20 gallons at time. "Plans for the parks and street in Mason City include making new drive in East park, the plahl ing of a tree of every species i Cerro Gordo county in the park, th replacement of a number of tree iri Central park, surveys of the oth er narks in town and a tree census Current events were given by th members of the club preceding Mr Flickingcr's -talk. ,*.

Dr. Rock is the author of a book that tells in a simple way about treating goitre at home. He has published thig book at his own expense and will send a copy free to anyone interested.
