Mrs. Stevenson deo'ares th it thv Sa

Mrs. Steve Eso:is lector concludes as
follows: "Chief Justice Chambers has
been represented n;; saying in a lefler
to his brother, 'Inever was happier.'
He must be a person singularly devoii
of imagination if he ever pictured to
himself the scenes being enaere-il :n :he
bombardment of -those villages; the ex-
I odus of panic-stricken people rushing
hither and thithvr; shells burs-tin.;
everywhere, the cries of bedridden and
hapless wounded people burning aliv?

pangs of childbirth, mangLsd children

them and the bush behind them. And
we read that the woods also were
shelled. Who is to be held accountable
for these de-edsthat disgrace both'Eng

A bookseller has been telling Litera
ture that the color of the binding has
a great deal to do with the success of
a book. Red books sell. The great mass
of bookbuyers, of course excluding,
the few who really know something
about books, judge by appearances.
Drab and gray and brown books are

not inviting to look upon, and they do
not sell easily. Green makes a better
showing and books in blue will gener
ally find a buyer, but red books have
always the best sales. Terhap?, after
all, it is not a bad p'.an when you know
no:hing of the book you are buying to
buy it because of its color. Color is
always essentially suggestive. Red is
bright, warm and good to look upon,
and it is well that the binding of books
in dvab should be discouraged.
The Opening and Closing of the Flow
ers Tells the Time of Day.
The phenomenon of certain species
of flowers opening and clewing at parti
cular hours has been utilized by an
J Ohio landscape gardeaer to add a
unigue decoration to the grounds or
John D. Rockefeller's country seat at
Tarrytown. It consists of a flower bed
which can be used as a clock. . The
bed is circular and divided into twelve
parts. Each part contains a figure
composed cf a flower which opens or
closes at the corresponding hour. Thus
the 2 space is occupied by a II made
of hawkseed, which closes at 2 P. M.
precisely. The hands, of course, are
stationary and merely ornamental.
They are composed of the common
yellow da delion, which opens at 5:30
A. M. and closes at 8:30 P. M. They
points to arrangements of flowers re
presenting these figures.
There has been no difficulty in find
ing flowers to suit the various hours,
and in some cases th.e figure has been
made up of more than one flower.
Among those that have been used are
the snow thistle, that closes at 1 P.
M; the sow thistle, that opens at 5 A.
M. and begin to close at 11, but does
not fully close until noon; the yellow
goat's beard, which opens at 4 A. M.
and closes at 4 P. M. with such accu
racy that in some of the poorer dis
tricts of Scotland where there are no
clocke the children are dismissed from
school by ii; the blue chicory, which
opens ot 4 A. M., turns white at sun
rise and closes at noon; the morning
glory, pnppy, waterlily, mmpernal, and
marigold opening at 5 A. M., 7 A. M., S
A. M., and 9 A. M., respectively; the
star of Bethlehem, which closes at 11;
passion flower, which opens at noon,
the beauty of the night, which opens
at 5 P. M.,the evening primrose, winch
opens at C; he white lychnis, opening
at G, .and the blue convolvulus at 2 A.M.
This clock is so arranged that from
a distance it looks like an ordinary
flower bed, but on close inspection no
ne could mistake it for anything other
than what it is.
