A Bit Collection of Rare and
Beautiful Flowers
Almost everybody, when they take
time to think about it, love and ad
mire the beautiful in art and na
ture, but some of us of Adam's race
havf not the cultivated tiste to ap
preciate these beauties. 1 car»· not
how rough fir uncouth *p may be
the pretty flowr·· the good Master
has adorned this earth with appeal
to lie all alike, and 'he wild Indian
must have stopped ids chase in
T» xas before the white man invaded
it, to admire the fl'.weis that dot m
profusely tins goodly land.
Mr. and Mrs. A. Gardner are
adepts 111 the culture of flowers, and
Tuesday afternoon we visited their
bot house recently erected near the
Chautauqua park where we beheld
rt « ρ « η», of hewilderintr beauty and
fragrance. This structure is made
of glas» and is sixteen by seventy
five feet, making a largp and com
modious room which is now filled to
overflowing with suet, rare plants
and flowers as carnations, callas,
geraniums, hyacinths, pansies,
roses and others too nutnetous to
mention. In this grand and beauti
ful collection there are ni« re than
one thousand plants and flower·
which are green ηιιΊ flourishing in
s; it· of the reo· tit freexes. A young
man can here procure baskets of
rare scented t! >wers l· r his sweet
heart to use it, ijeci >rat ion s for en
tertainmeuts. etc. Mr. an i Mrs.
(tardtiT have estahlisl · d an etiter
pri»e which will fill a long felt waat

liberal patronage at the hands ·»f
our citizens. When w<- arrive.| at
