Philadelphia forty friends of tho
lato F. 13. Goweu, who was then
president of the Central Railroad of
i New Jersey, once gave that gentle
man a dinner at tho Bellevuo which
was a marvel iu its way.
Tho room iu which it wa3 served
! was thirty eight feet square. Every
foot of the wall was covered with
1 green foliage, in which were conceal
; ed small electric lights of various
colors. Tho room itsolf was a veri
table flower garden. So abundant
were tho masses of blossoms that it
was almost impossible to movo from
, tho table without crushing some of
them. Tho table was oval iu shape,
i tho center being filled with American
1 beauty roses. From these raidiated
1 maiden-hair forus aeross tho table.
thus converting tho inner edgo of
i tho table into n field of green foliage.
! Tho dinuor was givou iu wiuter,
when flowers are most expensive and
when gamo birds are hard to find.

large and varied stock of
DRY and FANCY GOODS,
weight iu gold for forty-four bottlos
of Madeira. This wine, it appoars,
was fished up iu 1814 from a Bhip ,
wrecked at the mouth of tho Scheldt '
in 1778, where it had lain duriug ,
that interval. Louis XVII I bought
it at that time, and part of it was
presented to tho French consul, and
thus earao into the hands of tho Due I
de liaguso. Tho weight of a bottlo
of wine, including bottle, is about
two pounds, avoirdupois, so that at ,
