DAINTV EASTER CONCEIT8.
Krevatltear I at Ctoavrejr tlta a Sentl«aent. Th ideal E a iemembianceriiB: In harmony with the influence* of the day, and it covers a multitude gifts appropriate in every a for the feast, the season and the individual tastes. From the simple Easter card the cus tom of exchanging gifts at this season has grown almost as widespread as Christmas giving. Th Easter displays in the shops in connection with the bright flowers, spring millinery, new goods and other temptations in the way of shoppers are made as much of in a business way. Th fashions change, however, and what as consid ered as thoroughly artistic last year looks just a bit shabby now. Th dainty elegance of what is to be had this spring in anticipation of the de mand shows the hold the festival has in the popular favor. The Easter souvenir par excellence is a flower. I represents all the senti ment of nature's reawakening because it is her most choice gift to earth. "Be hold the lily in its glory." Th odorous ,and a white blossom has grown to be typical of the day, and it is the queen of Easter fragrance and charm. If you know anything at all about flowers—and if you do you are just as sure to love them—it amounts to a post graduate course in a floral education to stop at a florist's window or walk through the shop. All the bulbous plants are now in the height their beauty. The lilies nod their handsome heads in a most pat roniziug way over the tuiips, jonquils, azaleas, narcissuses and the fragilf lily of the valley. Genesta bushes, sjorgeous in their coloriug, are valued. as all yellow blossoms are in the spring, for decorative purposes. Th blooming marguerites and spirea sug gest the quiet of the churches, where so many of them will be used Easter Sunday. The violets and the pansies are sweeter than ever and no less attract ive. N more delightful Easter gift can be imagined than a pot of -grow ing lilies, the earth around them hid- DAINTY EASTER CONCEITS. den away under bunches of violets. A pretty jar filled with cut lilies is an other, or a box of violets, a bunch of roses, or roses mingled with White lilac. What could be sweeter and more suggestive of the feast? Th flowers fade, but the thought which inspired the sending does not, nor that exqui site sense of enjoyment which comes to the receiver. After flowers the regulation Easter souvenir is most likely to take the shape of candy, books, cards and all the pretty trifles which have grown so fashionable in late years. The long fast from candy which the feminine world is supposed to have been keep ing all Lent, both in the interests of piety and health, makes it naturally a most welcome gift. Whe it comes, hidden a a in the beautiful and artistic bonbonnieres which are sup posed to be especially suggestive of the season, then the gift is really a joy, if not forever, a least for a good, long time. Three-fourths of all the novel ties are either chicken or egg shape or have this suggestion somewhere in their make up. ~r As an Easter emblem the egg is far ahead of anything else. W it is so may be partly explained by he fact that the Lenten fast of the early church did not permit the use/ of eggs any more than meat. A any rate, the egg has the field, and nothing disturbs it. There are eggs of silver, 5hma, •glass and every other material, as well as sugar. Some *f the china and silver ones are superbly decorated and can be put to many uses as a box. Many of the large ones have music boxes hidden a a in them. Tiny silver eggs, adorned with a wishbone or with fat Cupids astride of them, are other forms. Some of the newest bonbonnieres are made of straw lace braid, so trimmed up with the satin bag lining and the ribbon rosettes that if it as not for the little chick perched in one corner the whole affair might be taken for a spring bonnet. A pretty doll, dressed in a watteau and a much Deflowered bonnet on her yel low curls, has concealed under her vo luminous petticoats a receptacle for candy. Whe it gets right down to the daintiest conceits and surprises, you have to admire the pretty thingg/from Paris. Nothing to approach them are a in this country.—Selected.

"Mr. Allen is he unique ntan in his line in he Unite States," said Mr. Brubaker.

"He paid cash for he Paris expo sition tickets and I understand he for half price. Of course there is no place to sell except in Paris, and 1,000,000 tickets is a big number to dispose of, but will doubtless succeed there as as everywhere else."
