ones. The stitches, as a matter of
course, are in this Instance to be small,
and all the work is to bo done In what
is known as Kensington stitch.
For tho leaves the green shades are
to be used in tho samo way, light and
tlarU being mado to express light und
shade. The stitches of the leaves must
all run from the central vein to the
edge, exactly as tho natural loaf is
veined, and care must bo tal;cn to pre
serve tho serrated edge.
The blossoms aro white, for the most
part, delicately shaded with gray for
the inside and with pink for the outside.
In all instances of the leaf curling over
the curve must be expressed by making
tho outsido piuk and the Inside white at
tho center, bhading to gray under tho
curl. The stamens aro yellow, and
each should bo completed with a stitch
running crosswiso ul the end. Tho cen
ter is expressed by a number of French
knots, all of yellow, making an effect
like the natural blossom.
When the entire spray is worked, the
falling leaves must be done. To give
them as much variety as possible, and,
at the same time, keep closely to na- j
lure s model, these leaves should, some
or them, be shaded with pink and some
with gray. This, because tho real
leaves in falling would surely tome

Japantta Cigarettes In China.
During the month of May last tho ex
port of Japanese cigarettes to Shanghai
aggregated 552,500, from which it may
be inferred that the foreign residents of
China are beginning to appreciate the
Japanese article. But unfortunately, as
is usually tho case with everything ex
ported from" this country, tho necessity
of keeping up tho quality of the article
is not appreciated.
Adulteration with leaves of tho lotus,
the goba and so forth, has been resorted
to, with the result of greatly injuring
the reputation which tho cigarettes were
just beginning to cam. Tho Tokio news
agency addresses a word of timely warn

tho World's exposition at Chicago, where
it was presumed his remarkable beard
would prove a striking feature in the

ho chose to relievo hinuelf of that in
