w,j 'v//( er stated yesterday
y morning that the de
mand for flowers

4 - this season is muon
greater than it was last. Another florist
declared positively that the demand is
lessth S Easter. It looks like a case of
•‘you pays your money and you takis
your choice.” Perhaps each florist
judged liy his own sale-i. At all events if
the question was submitted to a popular
vote tue chances are taut tue lirst dealer’s
opinion would be supported by a majority
Of the ballots.
A gentleman who is an enthusiastic
grower and admirer, amt whose cardan
is .i mass of b.-autiful blooms, said that
1 1 supply most be abundant, because be
knew tnat uis own plants are blooming
more iret-ly this spriug than last. The
most of the professional growers admit
that the supply is abundant enough not to
cause them any anxiety.
Hart any one stood at the corner of Bull
and Broughton streets >es!erday after,
noon and attentively noticed the corsage
bouquets that passed he would have
feared that the churches would be scan
tily decorated tool a- unless the ladies
donated the beauties which they wore in
their bosoms, to have asked that would
have been making a demand lor a saert-
Uce almost as bard to comply with as
Abraham's. Roses were tue favorite as
They always am. one could have
counted tweu y uliferent varieties in less
than live minutes, and probably more if
ft is eye was apt at distinguishing the
several kinds.
White rosea were the most numerous,
but that was not an evidence that they at e
the most popular, for any lady would
have traded her Lamarques or Zelia Pra
dells for Jacqueminots two for one. The
Jacques still retain the tiret place in fu
vor and they well deserve the honor, lor
they surpass all of tlieir tatutly for beauty.
Then there were a good many specimens
of such new and pretty varieties ot red
roses as the Countess ot Oxford, the Al
phonse de Rotiisobi and anif the l)r. Amity
with an occasional James Sprant and a
Maria Henrietta, a climber wbieu
ts now blooming pro.usely.
Other wnite roses besides the Zelia
graded and the Lamarque were the
Eetella l’radell and me one with the
poetical name, Rtsve D’Or, a dream of
gold. Some florists rank the fisteila Pra
riell above the Zelia, but the best judges
consider tbe latter the finer of the two.
It has the advantage of being an ever
bloomer, whereae its relative blooms
only In the spring and fall. The Souve
nir de la Mai i\laison Is not plentiful, but
where It is seeu it is not second to any
of the light colored roses. In ‘yellow
varieties tbe Marechal A'etl led by long
odds, aud was tar ahead in numbers oi
the Marie Von Haute and Isabella
Sprunt. All three varieties are in full
bloom and each one is a beauty. The
lovely La France led the pink varieties
among such rivals as the Catherine
Mermet, the Hermosa and the Duchess o!
Brabant. After ail, tbs old standard
varieties looked as near perfection as the
best of the new kinds. No doubt the old
and the new where they were aide by side
on some fair neck quarreled and raved
after tbe manner of the twa brigs of Ayr
or two jealous lovers.
, But the roses did not have tbe field ex
clusively to themselves. German impe
rial and Highland pansies were quite
conspicuous, and perhaps dreamed that
some day they themselves would be
the rage. Many a basket of flowers was
jent yesterday afternoon to tbe “best”
girl. The Catholic, Episcopal and Luth
eran churches, which are generally the
most lavish with flowers in decorating at
Easter,got tbe principal purl of their sttj •
b>ly from the yards of the parishioners.
The tropical foliage plants for massing,
and, in fact, all of the potted plants tor
backgrounds, are loaned. The cut flow
ers which are worked into the designs are
given, of course. Easter lilies are scaroe,
the season having been backward, and
there are not over many calla lilies. The
prettiest effects are often obtained by ar
tistic grouping of plants with a careful
blending of the oolors of those in oiooin,
Tbeie is hardly a church In Savannah
that will not be decorated in some way m
token of the great festival.

To-day Is tbe great festival of the year
In the Roman Catholic and Episcopal

The G-meg K newherf,
Three straight defeats is Savannan’s
record at Charleston.
Less than 100 people went to tbe
Theatre to witness the telegraph report
of yesterday’s game. Wren olds was
counted on to put a check on the Caro
linians’ slugging, and there were hopes
of Savannah’s winning at least one out of
the three gam ,‘S. When, at the end of
the third inning, the Pennsylvanian had
yielded twelve hits, with a total of
eleven runs, the crowd wanted him
bounced right away.
McAdams was then put in to pitch, and
held tho sluggers down. He was sup
ported by Dallas,who, although he showed
signs of overwork, caught an almost
faultless game. Some nr bis stops were
almost miraculous. Had McAdams been
in the box at the start Savannah would
have won the game beyond a doubt. The
team played well to/ether,and its batting,
base running anil fielding was superior to
anything that it has shown yet. Reilly’s
playing at short stop was one of tbe fea
tures of tbe game. Adams playetf tuird.
The Charleston’s battery was Droudy
and Grady. The borne c'ub batted
heavily, and piled up 20 base hits with a
total of 22 bases, but were not able to
come up to coarleston’s 26 hits with a
total of 33 baees. It was a slugging game
from beginning toend.
Savannah has shown the need in the
past three games of a first-class pitcher.
Jones and Wrenoids were both put into
the box untried and unpracticed. They
are both speedy, but need practice before
tbey will beable lodoettective work. Tbe
rest of the team, with one or two excep
tions, is made uoof good material, l'eltz.
In oentre field, is, without doubt, one of
the best players in the league.
The cliib will return home this morn
ing and will pilay the Charlestons here to
morrow. Tuesday and Wednesday. On
Wednesday night they will leave for
Memphis, where they will open the league
season ou Saturday. The Cuarleston club
Will also go direct from here to Nashville,
where it opens the season.

Nashville, April 9.—Today’s game
between Nashville and Evansville was
an easy thing for the locals, who won by
a score of 13 to 1. There were few fea
tures to the game. Maul was in the box
for Nashville and only one clear hit was
made off him. Though the visitors were
credited witu four, two were scratch bits
and one a base on balls, Nashville, how
ever, deserves little credit for deleatteg

7’be r*ew rules about which so much
has been written witbin the past few
weeks are having a pretty good trial.
Most of them are clear enough, but those

The News and Courier says that those
who witnessed Charleston’s two games
with Savannah, and those with Philadel
phia and Detroit, need not be told that
the two straight victories obtained over
Savannah are not owing to any special
weakness on the part of the visiting team,
but rather to the splendid work of the
Charleston players, wh'-, while a trifle
weak in field work, have perhaps no
equals, and certainly no superiors, in
batting, in the Uuiteit Slates, In these
two last games tney have been fortunate
in hunching their hits, and have thus
beaten the Forest City team.
