LACE~BARK TREES.
The Beautiful and Serviceablo Drees
Materialn They Yield.
, There aro in all about half a dozen
lace bark trees in the world, so called
becauso the inner bark yelds a natural
race in ready made sheet form, which
can bo made il) in serviceablo articles
of apparel. Only four of these curious
species of trees are of munch )ractlcnl
value. Tourists who have stopped at
Iawnit or Samoa may recall the lace
bark clothing of the natives-clotiing
of a neat brown color when now, of ro
markable strength and of a fragrant
pdor, like freshly cured tobacco leaf.
The nativo talpa cloth, as it Is called,
is made from the bark of the Bruso
netia ipapirlfera, but it Ia not usually
includled among the real lace bark
trees. In its natural state the real lace
bark is of a delicate cream white tint
Et is probiably a kind or fibrous pith.
When the outer hark is remaoved it can
be unfolded and unwvoundl in one seam
less pice, having a surface of a little
more than a square yard. Washing
and sun bleaching give It a dazzling
white appearance. The fabric is airily
light. It is used in the Wecst Ind1ics for
nmantillas, cravats, collars, winidow cur
talns-in a word, for every purpose
that ordinary lace is used. In) making
up shawls, v'eill and the likec it is cus
tomaury to pie0ce two sheets of lace
bark together. Delicato and apparently
weak as it Is in single mesh, a bit of
lace bark if roiled into a thin string
will ail but resist human strength to
break it.--Now York World.
U)NCONGENIAL FLOWERS.

The florist frowned as lie took up an
order for a table decoration. "That

calling up the customer and suggest

"You must never take an order that
calls for a mixture of mignonette and
roses," ho said. "A centerpiece of
those two flowers wouldn't last half
