composed of all the state flowers.
Already certain of the states bare em
blems which would make very appro
priate and pretty elements in such a
great American nosegay.
Idassarhnsetts people prefer the trail
ing arbutus fur an emblem. California,
on the other side of therontinent. has by
law adopted the csckscboltzia or peppy
aa ita state flower. The cedar sprig of
Vermont and the ine branch of Maine
would contribute a needed tinge of green
to the nosegay, while the orange blossom
of Florida wonld lend ita fragrance, and
the mountain laurel of Alaltama wonld
crown it respletidentlr.
The Roldenrod and the aster wonld bo
long to the first state which should for
mally adopt them, and so wonld the
graceful shooting star of the central west
and the prairie rose. There are flowers
aad trees enongh to "go around."
A bouquet composed of all these state
flowers and tree branch wonld grace
all formal occasions and would typify
tbe union of the states. It wonld aay

motto does. 'Youth's Cuiuimnion.

One of the brtgSa) .Vewnhaaa
girls, tbongh she has not come out a
mCst -vrasgler, scorrd a pleasing tri
amph over a male competitor recently.
She bad arranged to read with one of
tbe tutors for a Particular examination,
and it chanced that a young man waa in
exactly tbe same position, and the pro
fessor naturally thinking of the conveni
ence it wonld be to him to take tbe two
together appealed to the young man.
"Well, yon kaow I do not want to be
kept back. I want to make the most of
ay time," the man objetf tL but be waa
prevailed upon to try it for a time, and
tbe lady willingly agreed to the proposad.
At the first lesson tbe young man waa
light and easy in conversation andaome
wbat discursive in bis mnarka to the
tutor. Tbe ladyaaid nothing. At the
aryt kneeting tbe lady bad a mass of in
fotnaUoa which aba brought forward in
a systematic, bnsineasllka way, and tbe

THE CHEMISTRY OF COSMETICS.
The more sensible women content
themselves with simply amearing some
grease, cold cream or vaseline over the
face and tbe neck. Then this is wiped
off with a soft cloth, so that the akin no
longer looks abiny, bnt there ia still
enough grease remaining to make the
powder, which is now applied, adhere
firmly to the skin. Then the powder is
ia fts turn artistically wiped off till tbe
face no longer appears to havo been
powdered. Still, though not obviously
visible, there is enough powder remain
ing to make a sallow, yellow, biliona
or brownish skin look white and fresh.
Tbe slightest conceirablo touch of led
to tbe cheeks, a littlo blue over the
course, followed by one or two suggest
ive veins, and a more liberal allow
ance of black sometimes simple lamp
black to tbe eyebrows and eyelids com
plete tbe picture. But, above all, this
must lie dono so slightly, bo lightly and
with such a delicacy of touch and per
ception, that it must not appear as if
the skin had in any way been painted
or improved artificially.
When for this purpose simple rice
powder is used, the only damage caused
is that of blocking up for a time the 550
sweat glands kt square inch bf the
skin's surface. This of course still
farther deteriorates the complexion and
aids to dry np and spoil tbe skin; so
that in the morning, when all is wiped
off, the unfortunate woman finds her
self uglier than ever. Hence the in
stinctive aversion to washing of the face,
and if tho face seems dirty tho dirt is
in preference covered with an extra
layer of rice powder. For this purpose
nxwt women carry emsil powder boxes
with thrm. But many are not satisfied
with simply using cold cream and rice
powder. This is shown by tbe enor
mons snlo of cosmetics of every descrip
tion. Tho injury done is then much
greater, for tbe pores of the skin are
not only blocked up and prevented from
fulfilling their function, but they are
filled up with very virulent and inju
Also many of the well known cosmet
ics may be used with advantage where
there is irritation or redness due to in
flammation. They serve as medicaments
to rare r. slight skin complaint. Thus,
fir instance, the Lait Antcpbcliqne, as
dscrilied by Frofcseor A. tlardy.which
constats of corrosive sublimate, oxide of
lead and salphuric acid or ritrol or
tho famous Lait do Kinon, which is an
emuhdon of oxide of lead and snbnitrate
of bismuth or tbe Eau de Lys, which
has for a base pmtochloride of mercury,
might be used with advantage for irri
tations, etc., of tho skin. But tbey are
not nsed for this purpose, they are used
to whiten skins that are in a healthy
condition. Then we have the Eau
Magique, which is prepared with oxide
of lead and hyposulphite of soda, and
tbe Eau Royal de Windsor, which also
contains oxide of lead. The Ean de
Caotille, as a variation, is made of ace
tate of lead. M. Uirard, the analytical
chciniet of the Paris municipal labora
tory, states th&t the Poudre Epilatoirs
de Lorlortut consists of 60 parts of mer
cury, 80 parts' of arsenic, 30 parts of
litharge (protoxide of lead) and 30 parta
With the exception of tbe starch, all
these are poisons, and tbe mercury and
tbe arsenic are especially virulent
poisons.' What wonder that health fails
when such tilings are daily applied ti
tho skin! What wonder that teeth de
cay and full out when mercury is con
stantly employed! Nor is even the sim
ple rice powder always quite so inno
cent as it seems. Some manufacturers,
to improve tbe effect of their rice pow
der, have been found to add 900
grams of carbonate of lead to 1,000
grams of rice. Rice powder and po
tato powder will not injure tho skin
very much, and for tha very excellent
reason that they do not resist the effect
of beat, for when the glands begin to
act tbe perspiration drives away tbe
powder, and nature, unchecked, per
forms its function. Instead of lieing de
lighted that the iowdcr has not inter
fered with thedne performance of those
functions so essential to the preserva
tion ot health, the ladies are in despair
becanse the powder goes and the defects
ot their complexions are no longer con
cealed. Hence there is alwaya a de
mand for powder that will adhere to tbe
skin in spite of tbe beat, and to secure
this end it often happens that rice pow
der is mixed with talc, or with chalk or
snbnitrate of bismuth, and tho more
successful tbe result tbe greater tbe in
jury done to tbe skin and the health of
the person who makes use of such con
trivances. Philadelphia Telegraph.
A StaMfy la Scarlet. '
For a long timo it bas been believed
that bright scarlet coold. only bo com
bined successfully with dark blue or
black, but tbe artist ia colors bas
shown this year tbe possibility of the
combination of bright scarlet and gold
en brown. A very pretty bonnet show
ing these colors is of bright scarlet felt,
rather 'oval la shape and fitting tbe
nnd almost like a toque. Just in front
tbe brim is split np to tbe crown. The
edgea are all outlined with anatrow
band of mink, and where the brim is
rat and turned np there is placed a
mink's head, which looks out with com
posure from under its strange aarronnd
ings. About tbe crown ie a twist of
gorde brown -eatin, and just ia front
ia a crescent of gold net with rhine
stooes. Ladies Home Journal.

In tho city of Lexington, Ky., there

tho boards of aldermen and council

and a president chosen, the Jew in each
