Mrs. Francis Copley Seavey, an ac
tive member of the American Civic as
sociation, recently contributed an arti
cle to a Chicago paper on the way to
organize a clvle Improvement associa
tion. Tortions of Mrs. Seavey's article,
"the whole of which was "Leave the
World a Tleasanter Tlaee Than You
Found It," are herewith reproduced.
Mrs. Seavey said: 'Tleasautor is In
this application equivalent to better.
Environment is coming more and more
to be considered a pronounced factor of
education the education that makes
for character. If towns, villages and
Individual homes have an unkempt,
6hiftless, down at the heel air the pass
erby Is justified in setting down the In
habitants as shiftless, and the genera
tion that grows up amid such surround
ings is more than likely to bear their
characteristic imprint. Then, too, there
Is a material side to the question. The
value of real estate increases in direct
proportion to its possibilities for home
making. And every local business and
calling as well as all churches and
schools thrive as the ratio of desirable
"When n few members of a commu
nity feel that an Improvement society
is needed let them learn the feeling of
the better class of residents by a per
sonal canvass or by circulating printed
slips similar to the following, which is
a copy of one issued by the promoters
of an eastern organization:
"To Our Fellow Citizens of :
"The board of directors of the village
Improvement association earnestly invite
your co-operation in the work of beauti
fying: our town a work in which all are
mutually interested. To this end we re
quest you to Join the society by giving"
your name to the bearer of this note and
paj'Jns at your earliest convenience either
to said bearer or to the treasurer
cents, which is the entire expense of
membership for the year.
"We further Invite your assistance in
creating a public sentiment that will se
cure tidiness on all public and private
property In the village.
"BOARD OP DIRECTORS,

"Or let a meeting be called without
such, preliminaries. This meeting will
often prove more successful if made
attractive by a short and appropriate
programme. Probably the most effec
tive Incentive, both to attendance and
to membership, is a short, pointed talk
on tho possibilities of Improvement bo
cltles, Illustrated by the stereoptlcon
with lantern slides made from 'before'
and 'after' views of door yards that
have been 'treated.' A good lantern
slide of a barren back yard, littered
with tin cans, ash barrels, etc., fol
lowed by another showing the same
yard carpeted with grass, lined with
vines and outlined by tasteful bordered
planting, speaks for itself and for the
cause tis no tongue can speak. Tho fol
lowing copy of the constitution of a
prominent society gives an Idea of what
"1. This association shall bo called the
"2. The objects of this association shall
be to cultivate public sentiment in favor
of Improving and beautifying the homes,
streets and surroundings of und to
endeavor to promote In every legitimate
manner the best development of the whole
"3. The payment of shall constitute
membership during the then current year
of the association.
"i. A board of directors of three from
each ward shall be elected by ballot at
this meeting and at each annual meeting
thereafter. They shall constitute an exec
utive committee, who shall have the gen
eral control und management of the af
fairs of the association. They shall elect
by ballot a president, three vice presi
dents, a secretary and a treasurer, and
the appointment of all committees by the
president shall be subject to their ap
proval. The president, vice president, sec
retary and treasurer shall be ex officio
members of the board of directors.
"6. No debt shall be contracted by the
board of directors beyond the amount of
available means within their control, and
no member of the association shall be
liable for any debt of the association be
yond the amount of his or her subscrip
tion. "C. This section specifies the date of the
annunl meeting, rules for called meetings
and of quorums.
"7. This constitution may be amended
at any meeting of the association, pro
vided said amendment shall have been In
cluded in the published call for the meet
ing. "The question of membership fees is
one for local settlement. Some of the
societies charge none, relying for sup
port on subscriptions, entertainments,
etc. The majority of organizations
beard from, however, report fees rang
ing from 25 cents to $2. In every case
members may work out the fee if they
choose. A fee should be charged if
possible, for some money is essential,
and this is a simple and legitimate way
to secure it. The officers, directors and
executive committee should include
capable, influential, tactful and taste
ful people, for on them will largely de
pend the success or failure of the un
dertaking. "As to objects, it Is wise to begin
modestly, then, as strength and num
bers increase, gradually widen the
cope and extend the work. At no
time undertake too much. What is
' done should be well done. The aims of
established organizations range from
having weeds rut to having water
works built and parks made. They
paint telephone poles and protect nat
ural scenery and wild birds. 1 They
erect drinking fountains for dogs,
horses and men. They form children's
street cleaning leagues, distribute flow
er seeds, improve cemeteries and rail
way station grounds, transform local
damping grounds into bits of refresh
ing greenery, establish free libraries
and, in short, tackle anything their
bands find to do and do it with win."
