Wo do not refer to albinism, or the occurence of whlto flowers on a Ulnnt belonging to n species In which they nro usually colored, but to varia tion In the tint or blossoms on dif ferent Individuals. The coloration Is atte to the more or loss fluid material oontnlncd In superficial cells on the external pnrt. Tho exact niitiiro of that miiterlnl Is not onslly determined, and It Is, no doubt, of n highly com plox character - possibly a hydro-car bon of some form, with mlniito traces of mineral stibatancos. The great va riety In Huts nrlso. to a great extent, from blending-or. In other words. Na ture's color box. could wo see It. would bo found to contain but a few paints. Dr. Clifton Sorby, some years ago. examined the coloring matter of n, number of chrysanthemums blossom Iiik In the public gardens at Sheffield, with tho result, wo believe, that all their varlotm tints wero attributed to tho diverse blending of two elementary coloring substances. In same kinds of plants certain colors nre cither nnttirnl or are very euIIy obtained; in others they nre almost hopeless. Indeed, somo hotnnUts havo arranged flowers In two sorlea- yellow marking tho one and liltto the other. Thus In plants which nro aligned to the yellow series, such ns the tulip, the dahlia and the rose, id lie Is either almost abnormal or un known: while the change In the oppo site direction Is equally difficult.

A species of evening primrose has whlto flowers, whlrh chstige to red. Hibiscus vari abilis has flowers, white In the morn ing, pink at noon, mid bright red nt sunset. Other plants have u different color In the bud liefore It expnnds from what It assumes In tho open flower. In oth ers, ngaln. the color of the blossom Is changed na the plant becomes oldsr. Hut efforts may bo produced by ex ternal ugsitrlos other than light. Mim icry, possibly protective, lias been sometimes detected. I)r A. It. Wallace tells us that spurges growing In deserts often closely resemble cacti, and that seaside plants and high Alpine plants of different orders nre often curiously alike. Two casos, however, are still more remarkable. Dr. lltirchcll found n mnsumhrynnthemum In South Afrlea colored llko the pobblos among which It grow, mid Mattsel Woalo obsci ved an other plant in the same latiutry wli'th exhibited a Nlmtlnr power of Imitation. In some casees, also, the color of the flowers Is affected by the character of the soil. The ordinary hydrangea may be changed from pink and rose colored to n rather leaden blue by being plant ed certain kinds of loam and peaty earth. It Is popularly asserted that a mixture nf soot In the soli will sttfllee to produce the effect. Alum, according to others, bring about tho samo result. We suspect that M.
