After th Tarkhsh war of 18TS, that govern aieut. having lost ita Ha.ll.an proviuces, and w ith thenj, the rose gardens, undertook to transfer the industry to Asia Minor, but while the bushes grew and produced j in me ase numbers of roses near Brnussa, so little attw could be extracted from them that the enterprise was aban doned. Aftar t'iat it a& thought that the (i.iauisk rose could r made to p ro ll ore Its attar ouly on the south slope of the Ualkans, w here It has grown foe agea. .,,.-,,;...( , . i : But within the butt three years au jther experiment has been made with the roses, and this has proved so suc cessful that the gardeners have con tlwled that similar conditions as tho.' prevailing in the Ilnlknns can be found la this country.- Extensive plantations of the rose bushes were made in the neighborhood of Lelpsie, (lemiany, and the roses yielded such an amount of at tar that an enormous industry has sud denly grownup. The manufactory near Leipsie treats during the Benson 3,000, 000 roses a day and extracta from them 800 pounds of atto? per year. As the attar sells for about six dollars per ounce, the value of this new industry (fin be reud ily estimated, although abou t 60,000 roses ore required to make ounce. The distillery is placed In tU-; middle of tha rose garden, so that th.; flowers reach the stills within a few minutes after they are cnt. Although the mention of the attar of rosea carries us back to th et and sug gests Immediately lta Persian origin, the manufacture practically died out t,hree years ago, and the center of the business has been for s long time in the country about Knnzanlik, on the south slope of the Balkans, close to the Bhlpka or Wild Hose pass, made famous In the history of the Knsso-Turkish war. The rose belt extends to a lrngth of about 17 miles and with an aveTagn breadth of tea miles. On this ground are produced annually from 5,000,000, 000 to 6,000,000,000 rose blossoms. But now that the Lelpide distillery Is In full operation, the business in the Balkans has. been seriously Injured. The only question remaining to complete the his tory of this industry is to find out whether it tan be transferred to this country, , Prom present Indications it seems as il it could, and instead nf Im porting hundreds of thousunds of dol lars' worth of perfumery, our dealers will find the supply right at their door.

But the dancer does not r.e:e lie in an impnired cireulatkm, but is al muscular.' In wnlUing the muwlea jusi alwva and just below the knee are brought more into p!y than any ethers. The compression of the muse'ea at this point is therefore something ta be avoided, for It means additions effort at every step, and consequent weariness. Often this fatigue produce muscular rheumatiant, and doctors' bills ure the. direct result of the frivol Otis bit of silk elastic, ribbon and silvet which dealers call a garter. "But," say the wearers of gurtet very truly, "we must have something to keep our stockings not only up over our shoe tops, but smooth." The slockini; suspender is, according to the doctors the thing which meets their needs. It extends from the corset or corset waist down the side almost to the knee in one undivided band. Three or font Inches above the knee it divides into, two parts, which extend in V-ahupe to the top of the stocking and clasp it with a tin or silver clasp, as the case may be. Unless the elastic Is so short that it causes a Jerk at every step, thin suspender is absolutely hygleulc. It winy even be made almost as frivolous ly pretty as the round one, for its clasps may be of silver and Itself of ribbon, edged silk elastic. In winter it is comparatively ey to hold the stocking in place by the sus pender garter, for it clings to the silk or woolen union tindersuit which all hyglenlcally inclined women wear. In summer, when they are of slippery siik or lisle thread, and when there Is na rough underwear surface to help in holding them in place, they arc apt tn slip slightly and lie la wrinkles above the shoe top. The truly hygienic woman bears this as bravely as she can, pre ferring wrinkles to compression. She relies upon tha suspender garter to hold the stocking up.hut she also wears a pair of somewhat loose round garters bo low the knee to keep the stockings from wrinkling. If the exigencies to tii!jner.s absolutely demand the round garter, it is much better thut it should be worn below tho knee than above. For the leg just below the knee has extensive area of bone which ordinary elastic is powerless to compress. St. Louis Re public. JOHN AND HIS POC;'.CTr,OCX.
