HalmalNon Pink, the Jiew Flower. In London, orchids, roses and violets have given way to a variety of carna tion that is so rich in texture and col oring that we would scarcely recog nize our inexpensive "pink" In the new creation, says the New York Press. Tbe new flower Is called a Malmaison pink, and It is the result of grafting the ordinary flower with a peony. The effect is perfect, and for the most part these Malmaisons are a deep coral shade. There Is a pretty story that a Taris florist discovered this pink in the gardens of Malmaisou, the former home of Napoleon's wife, Josephine, and cut a Blip from the Imperial plant, but this is improbable, and the fable 13 attached principally to "boom the Slalinaison. The Malmalson is worn with all colors, and Its peculiar shade seldom falls to adorn a woman. Soda. "Water. m There is no soda in soda water. Ev ery pint of soda water contains two and one-bnlf pints of carbon dioxide, a gas. Therefore when you drink one pint of soda water you really drink three and one-half pints.
