couldn't help it. It seemed to me tha'
when my firnt baby came I just had to

made quae as much trouble."
"Of course you understand, Ruth,
that I believe o ry mother should see

not see why a worn. :t in your or my

I "Did you always think things out In

ALL ITS OWN
THE AM MOVE.
The anemone expresses withered
, hopes. That meaning is probablj de
I i Ived from the fact that it withers as
'soon as it Is gathered and is so fragile
that the wind destroys it.
I Fairy-lore tells us that the delicate
veins of the anemone are painted by
the tallies and that at night the little
creatures cuddle down In the flowers
and draw the petals over them as
DEDICATED TO VENUS.
The classical legend states that the
anemone was dedicated to Venus be
I cause of her tears. One day Venus
I saw Adonis and fell in love with him
Adonis loved to hunt and Venus, tear
ing that he might be hurt, warned
him to be careful Adonis laughed
at her fears, but when out huntlnu,
a wild boar attacked and killed him.
Venuj saw the body and wept bi'.-
terly. "Your blood shall be trans
formed Into a flower," she exclaimed.
as a memorial of my grief.'' Th n
she sprinkled nectar over the blood
and a delicate crimson-vrineel flower
sprang up It is the anemone or wind
flower, so called because this tran
sient flower dose not bloom until the
ORIGIN Or N AME.
Another interpretation of the name,
wind-flower, is found In a Greek log
end. Anemone was a beautiful
nymph with whom Zephyr was tn
love. Flora became Jealous and exiled
her from court Far from her lover.
Anemone pined away and died of a
broken heart. Zephyr pleaded with
Venus who transformed Anemone's
body Into the flower and Zephyr fans
her with his wings all day long.
