Flowers, of course, always bavo been used at all festal occasions, and bo, consequently, nt the weddiiiKs of practically every nation. They are tho symbol of gayety, and hence their pro fusion at that most joyous of times a wedding. Hut soino of tho flowers have mora than a general significance. For ex ample, thero was long a custom for each guest to dip a sprig of rosemary Into his cup of wino before drinking tho couple's health. Tho bride (if sho wero not a widow) and tho bride groom onco ndorncd themselves with garlands of wheat. This was a symbol of pIcntifulncsB and increase and nt tho present timo tho bridnl wreath of Drango blossoms possesses tho samo meaning. In "yo olden times" there wero gar lands, garlands everywhere at a wed ding ceremony. Even tho rejected suitor sometimes woro a garland of gray willow. Ilcsldes tho flowers, both tho brldo and bridegroom woro a truo lovo knot, an ornament Introduced into England by tho Danes In the ninth century nnd called tho "trulofa," tho troth.

Tho year of 1912 had already begun this work, and it will bo inter esting to sco how far its successor will cary It out. In Paris dresses aro not worn nearly bo exlguously cling ing as tlioy wero In tho earlier part of last year. London is slowly following tho example of the city of chiffon. For tho rest, who am Bay?

USEFUL HOOK-AND-EYE BOX Simple Contrivance Will Save Time and Frequently Much Wear and Tear on the Nerves. Have you over hunted in vain for tlie special size of hook and cyo you needed? If not you are nn abnormally neat woman, or ono given to buttons or pins. During that mad hunt through n badly mixed box of sewing utensils you doubtless vowed to havo a sop arato hook-and-eyo box . forthwith. Then you promptly forgot. Tho next time immediately hunt a number of card envelopes, and on tho flap of each ono sew a hook and cyo to show tho slzo nnd color within. Put these envelopes neatly in a small box and your miaerablo fishing days are over. There should bo separato holders for cards of hooks and eyes, detached ones that have not been used and for thoso that linvo been ripped from n dress, as is tho habit of soma economical women. Small boxes with tho hook sowed or pasted to tho lid may tako tho placo of an envelope, but take up moro room and are less easily handled. For Evening Wear. Evening dress is quito lovely thle year, and tho tunic as much to the foro as ever, though rather Bhorter than that of laBt winter. Tho bead embroidery is all tho rago, and it is almost crowded upon tho nlnon that composes these tunics. They aro of the most vivid colors, nnd tho variety of designs is surprising. Thero ap pears to bo no end to tho lnventlvo ness of tho clover brains employed in this Interesting if arduous work. Tho great difficulty must bo to differen tiate the patterns from oach other. Ono of tho loveliest has two long stemmed lilies rising from tho hem In front, nnd a border of similar but smaller lilies finishes tho tunic. Tho color is cerlso, with crystal beads, and a curiously effective touch is the very nnrrow, fiat piping, In tho very palest greonlsh blue, which flnliihrs tho tunic around tho shoulders nnd bordors tho sleeves. Lovely cffoctB aro mado by laying theso beautiful colors over each othor. Lace Indications.

Whllo tho range of varieties used Ib excodlngly largo, attention continues to focus on tho llghtor effects. Laces Popular. Lace and figured cliiffons and voiles aro daintily wrought into charming evening frocks for girls who need thin dancing and dinner gowns. Tho bertha effect in Inco or beaded nets is very popular, and, moreover, immense ly becomes either a stout or slight person. It hides nny unsightly lines nnd adds chnrm to good flguros.

By URYANT C. ROGERS. 1'rofensor llnscoinb was a dry man very dry lie wasn't dry for want of water, lotmintido, root beer or limer. Mo could have quenched most any thirst by stopping into a saloon and salug to tlio baikeep "Whew! Is thlB hot enough for ou? Hot Vtn up again, old man." It was that tho pinfcssor's attitude was dry lie was dry outside and In. Ho never got excited A presidential election wnn no moro to him than a lo pn dog tight I lu never gossiped Ho Jii'vcr took up frivolous questions, vmch as the tariff on lamb chops, He had lew acquaintances, uml those ho forgot to bow to half tho time. Professor Mascoinli was Jiiht a pro fessor He filled the chair of natural history at tins state college at luka and given the leg of u grasshopper ho could tell in what period of tlie world he lived and died and why he inner got to he a clam or a coon 1 On his arrival at lukr the professor was offered board and lodging and all the comforts of home at tlie Wood- j nun eoiinge nr wnui socmen n rea tollable late, and ho installed himself there. He didn't earn about the name. It would have linen tlie same to 111 ia hail the cottage been named the Ox Tall Hive He didn't care much about his room, his food or his bed. Theiu was one other thing the pro fessor didn't care much about at the Woodbine, and that was Miss Joy Mar ton Miss ,loy was thirty-seven years old and still heart-free She and her mother owned tho Woodbine. They made li a rule to tako one gentleman Wilder from the college, and every time the old boarder went and n new cue n placed him the town gossips predicted that Miss .ley would succeed in her fall designs. That is, of course, she would lasso him and lead him to '.ho matrimonial altar. While Professor ltascomb was dry very dry-Miss Joy was glrly and kittenish and romantic. She wanted to read and talk of knights and chev aliers and squires and dames and ab ducted maidens. Professor Ilascornb wanted to talk about tho dodo and the mammoths. Whore was the common ground? Miss Joy wnnted to read and weep over "Tho Sewing Machine Olrl." Tlie professor wanted to catch and examine the hearts nnd lungs of bats and crickets. Why, if they mot on tho street tire professor was as apt to ad dress her as Mrs. Perkins or Miss Sehomorhorn as by her right name. They did not lack moro than a mllo or two of being as far apurt as the Poles. Without admitting that Miss J. over had any designs upon tho professor, It may be stated Unit at the crrd of six months the girl mused to herself: "I give him up. He 1b impossible. Ho will never como within 10 rods of being a hero. He. would boo rats eat mo up nnd not como to the rou"ito." All of this was very natural in a weary old maid. Three or four days later at tho din ner tnble, whero tho professor seldom spokn at all, ho suddenly said: "I see that there Ib to bo a circus in town." Gasps of astonishment from mother and daughter. Gasps that there was to be a circus, and gasps that tho pro fessor had referred to it. "And I think we'll attend." Gasps of tho gasplngest kind. "Yes, I want you both to go with mo. Had Profefisor Uoscomb suffered a sunstroke? Tho women turned palo as they looked from him to each oth er. "I don't enro much about tho circus part of it. but I should like to Btudy tho animals, particularly tho lion. Per haps I shall bo able to glvo you sorno information you havo never ncqulre'd." No, mother nnd daughter did not know the Hon very well. Tlioy had heard him spoken of as tho king of beasts, but with eggs at llfty cents a dozen, and butter almost ns much per pound, with nlno liars in the United States to ono truthtellor, they had ta kon only a passing Interest In Leo. Tho day and tho hour camo nnd as they stood before tho cage of the kan garoo tho professor musingly said: "Australia Is tho truo homo of tho kangaroo. He Is not a flesh-eating ani mal, and will not attack man unless driven to the wall. You may wonder at tho length of his hind legs. Why wasn't he created to run on four legs tho samo ns a wolf?" Miss Joy looked at her mother, and her mother looked at her. Thoy had run a boarding hnuso for tho last ten years, but It had never occurred to them to ask tiro question or uttempt to find tho nriBwer. "Tho kangaroo Is not a predatory animal," continued the professor, "Qn tho contrary, ho Is as timid ns tho hare, itoth must depend upon tliolr nlortnesB nnd lleetness to escape their foes, Thus it comes about that, their gait Is by leaps and bounds, and that by standing up on their hind legs tlioy can look for their cnomleB." "Mother, did you ever!" asked MIsb Joy ns sho drew a long breath. "No, daughter, I never did!" was tho solemn reply ' "Tho tnll of a dog or cat is merely ornamental. Behold tho tall of tho kangaroo! It is a cushion on which 'ha sits. It nssiBtB him to rise In a 'hurry. It acts riB a rudder to steer ihlur when leaping through tho air. If driven to defend himself ho usos claws and tnll. Ono blow of tho tall will break u man's ribs or leg." "Just think of that mother!" gasped Miss Joy. "Yes, I am thinking of It, daughter!" "Kangaroo meat Is not ranked among the delicacies," oald tho pro fessor, "but It Is very nutritious, in fact, one pound of It has moro nutri ment lu It than a pound and a quarter of Chicago beef, and at half tho cost. It is a wonder to me that American capitalists havo not arranged to im port kangaroo meat." "If they would only arrange, moth er!" sighed Miss Joy as she remem bered the price of tlie last1 beefsteak. "Perhaps the liomocratle party will bring it about," replied the mother. At this moment a stranger who had been listening to the wise tsjlk butted irr by asking the professor: "Did you say that kangaroo could knock a man gaily west with a blow ol his tall?" "Yes, sir." "Gosh all hemlock! Say, don't you think the bird could be taught to use his tnll'ni a pile-driver?" "Ladles ahem -we will now pass on to the king of beasts," was the evasive reply. "Mother, what Is a pile-driver?" whispered the daughter. "It's a machine they use to drive mouc) out of a college student when he's behind on his board!" "Leo, the lion, has been written about by hundreds of hunters nud nat uralists," began tho professor as they came to tho proper cage, "and yet wo do not know hlin as he Is. He Is a beast of moods, One day he will at tack a man with great llcrceness. The next ho will Uee from him. Hy nature hu is carnivorous. Meat Is his sole diet, and his appetite demands at least thirty pounds per day. A full grown lion has been known to devour tho bol ter hair or nn ox lu one night." "Suppose we bad one for n board er?" gasped Miss Joy. "Lord! Lord!" almost walled thu mother "Man Is the only living thing the Hon fears, nnd not always him," said the professor. "It Ib asserted that II man will look Leo steadily In the eyes for three or four minutes " He broke off there to draw himsell up and fold Ills arms and stare nt tho beast with a scowl, wrinkling his foro bend Leo stood It for about forty seconds. Then with a growl and a roar he plunged against the bars with such force that they gave way nnd ho sprang down upon Miss Joy. "Ilun! Ilun! The Hon Is Iooko!" There was a wild scattering. Mrs. Morton fainted away and fell to earth, but tho professor never turned a hair. Tlie Hon crouched down and laid n pay on his victim nnd growled. "Tho tnll of a Hon is not tho tall of a kangaroo," said the professor as ho stooped down and clutched It. "Never theless, It is capable of sustaining great weight when used thus!" And next moment ho had lifted tho beast from tho ground as a boy might a cat and wns swinging him In n cir cle. There were yells and cheers nnd cries of "hold him!" and presently tho circus people camo running with ropes nnd Leo was thrust Ignomlnously back Into his cago. Miss Joy wasn't hurt, her mother re covered from her faint, and profossor rinscomb wan a hero. Miss Joy man aged to tell him so, and though ho called her Mrs, Calhoun nnd Mrs. Woodlrnusn nnd got things badly mix ed up, she understood thnt he was also popping tho question und Bho replied yes.

This is told for n truo sto'ry by Tom McNcnl: In a certain town In wetern Kan sas, whose name is withheld for ob vious reasons, thero was a hotel which was as near tho limit, perhaps, as any pi nco thnt over masqueraded undo! tho n u mo of a placo whero a trnvoloi could get food nnd lodging. On on occnslon a man who was looking the country over stopped at tho hotel fol dinner. Tho meat was a .few pieces oi fat salt pork swimming In greaso; the broad was a batch of biscuits so hard that you couldn't break ono with a hatchet, and the butter was as strong as llmburgcr cheese. Tho stranger was hungry, but not near enough to stnrvutlon to bo able to eat anything thnt was on tho table. As ho sat looking ovor tho board with disgust a fly alighted In tho half-melted butter. Tho stranger carofully helped tho fly out of Its trouble and, ns ho watchod it crawl feebly away, said: "I know what's tho mntter with you. You're feeble-minded.
