Build a Friendly Garden Wall

THE Old World is as yet a more devoted lover of the garden wall than is the New, but we Americans are beginning to appreciate to a much greater extent than ever before the outdoor enclosure. It is interesting to note that to one young Englishman, accustomed to concealed grounds, America's many open gardens appeared to be designed principally for "show."

Homes of Outstanding American Women

THE first time I ever visited the home of a President-General of the Daughters of the American Revolution was when I went, as a plump, round-eyed child of seven, to see Mrs. Harrison at the White House. It was a very great occasion in the life of a little girl, this reception given to the visiting "Daughters" at one of the earliest of the "Continental Congresses," to which my mother took me, in the rather casual and informal way with which delegates included their children in those "salad" days of women's organizations.

Self-Help in Music Study

SELF-HELP is, and always has been, the foundation of all permanent success. The old adage that "God helps him who helps himself" is as true in the study of music as it is in any other endeavor. That individual is indeed in a lamentable condition whose fund of knowledge is based solely upon information obtained from others.

We have been planning for a long time to make this September birthday issue the most helpful, the most practical, the most attractive number we have ever published. There will be a wealth of gardening material applicable to early fall; there will be suggestions for furnishing and decorating the home for the winter months, and all of the departments which you may have been missing during these summer months will be resumed with added attractions.
