BETTER THAN REAL FLOWERS.
Artificial Bouquets Are Worn with the
As every woman know3, it Is rather
injurious to fine fabrics to pin heavy
bunches of real flowers on them. They
also fade before the evening Is over

The present fashion is to wear a

derfully colored and fashioned. There
is no attempt to avoid daring and
vivid combinations. This is a feature
of this season's dressing.

with their glossy green leaves, are

not in as good taste as they were

nnd has at tho moment under Its es

be attributed, they declare, to faulty
hygienic environment, unsuitable- food
or tactless trentmont. Incidentally
they assert that a disposition fot

Tho dunce, they say, Is often any
thing but a dunce. The poor child
may suffer from weakness of sight, ot
incipient deafness, and his teachers
fall to note tho fact. Moibld shyness
and solf-consciousneBs, often charac
