Flowers of color are oftenest used for

The effect may be entirely spolled by

Two novelties in flower fasbhlons thil

exist without her violets and who finds
the huge round bunch charming for the

wear, will gleefully welcome this orig
Inal idea. for it will enable her to dcling
to her cherished Marie Loulse and yet
reign in comfort.
The cuff bouquet is decidedly new
and practical, for It is worn on the arm
and does not bamper the éiands. It is
made of broad iatin ribbon, which fas
tens around the riglit wrist. From this
depend a bow and streamers of the
ribbon outlined with violets. A small
rope of violets swings trom the wrist.
Tied in witli the knot on the cuff is a
