The attention the florist pays nowa
days to the Easter lilies is a marked one;
for not so many years ago the demana
for the beautifully simple white flower
was exceedingly small.
They found the readiest sale with
churches then, and it was rare indeed
to find a private house decorated with
these flowers. Even the churches did
not require so many as to make the pro
duction of the Easter lily more than a
mere incident in the work of a florist's
gardener. Now it is a feature of his la
bors in the fall to pot thousands of bulbs,
Besides the usual amount of care ex
ercised by a good gardener in raising
flowers of any kind, these lilies require
especial attention. Before or after the
Easter season there is very little demand
for the flower, and he must see to it that
the buds appear just as Lent is ushered
in. To have the plants flower several
weeks before or not until the season is
closing means a big financial loss. Plac
ing the plants in a dark room delays the
buddins until the time arrives for them
to be salable, and then the forcing be

A Bare Find In Baltimore.
A few days ago, Mrs. Andrew Reid,
Jr., of Mount Vernon place, who , is a
native of France, and whose brotner is
an artist in Paris, made one of the rich
est art discoveries that has ever come to
light in Baltimore. Mrs. Reid is a great
lover of art and knows a good picture
when she sees one. For a long time she
has been in the habit of hunting through
secondhand stores for old paintings.
KflvAral davs aero, bv chance, she walked
into a store on North Charles street.
There she saw a dilapidated looking old
picture, which represented the head of a
French peasant. At first she did not
pay much attention to the picture, but
went on to examine the other old things
in the store. By chance she returned to
the picture, and it struck her as being a
remarkably fine piece of art work. She
turned it over and looked on the back,
and there was the artist's name. Before
her was one of the most valuable pictures
She immediately called the dealer and
asked the price of the picture. He stag
gered her by asking twenty dollars. She
paid the price, took the picture home
with her, and now it cannot be bought
for less than thousands.
It was a rich find, truly, as there are
only two other pictures in Baltimore by
the same artist. The picture is by Jean
Baptiste Greuze, and on the back of it
is "Jean Baptiste Cireuzo. 1 -io to
