FLOWER FESTIVAL SOCIETY.
n aw Plan f»r s«.>laf Dinner at
the festival Mall.
The dining-room, whioh the mar agers
are preparing with every possible care,
is to be run upon the European plan.
Great surprise was expressed last year
that snob bountiful lunches were served
for two bits, and many generous-hearted
people wished to pay double that sum.
which the ladies felt unwilling to allow.
Judging by this experience, they have
tbeaght it advisable to have regular
bills of fare, with v™« of "iielet to be
served eaoh day. Those who wish for
coffee and bread or cake alone, can be
accommodated; while those whose appe
tites are normal, or who c purses are
S boric, will have no difficulty in turn
aaoodlysum into tie diumg-room
m. The prices will be moderate,
the viands will be of the best that oui
.onerous housekeepers can provide, and
by the system of paying for what one
fsta, much choicer articles of food can
be served than upon the last years
