from the transparent wide-brimmed

elaborate neckpiece of embroidered

not omitting tho pumps of dull kid

summer's modes, and Indicate what
we may expect for the coming fall.
The costume shows a fine eye for
selection rather than a desire to be
original. There are several new
touches In the minor details, such aa
the new form of side comb In the

hips in the oriental fashion. Tho long

When tho mammal Is dead It Is
drawn alongside the ship by reeling

Into tho whalo through a hose with a

to the engine of the ship. The air
causes the mammal to float high out

London. The very 'slow growth
mado by tho mlstlotoo plant In the
first few years of Its exlstonco has
boon a causo of anxiety to thoso who
havn fondly hoped to grow large
bunches of mlstlotoo in their gar
dens In a short Bpaco of tlmo. In sup
port of your correspondent's vlows

tlotoo Is obviously older than tho host

corapllHhcd by removing tho mlstlo

Which It was growing and grafting
upon tho whitethorn. Your corre
spondent's succcrr In growing mlatlo
too on tho GlaRtoubury thorn raises
tho question of sultnblo host plants
for tho pnrnslto. It is most often
teen growing upon tho npplo, but in
certain districts it Is common on the

tho rare occurrence of mistletoe grow
ing upon oak was held sacred by ths
Druids and regarded as a divine gift
A most singular thing concerning mls
tlotoo Is .that, although It occurs on a
wide rango of trees and is bo common
on tho apple, yet it Is hardly evei
found on the pear. Tho writer has
never seen mistletoo on tho pear, and
such instances must bo extremely
rare. Attempts recently made to
grow mlstlotoo on 'pear have led to
such remarkable results that the sub
ject has since been brought before the
sclentlfio committee of the Royal Hot-.
tlcultural society. Mistletoe seed was
sown on a numbor of trees, and la
many instances germination took
place. In no case, however, did the
mistletoe get boyond tho stage of
germination, and no leaves were made.
Tho effect upon tho pear was notice
able, for the mistletoo In its attempt
to establish itself killed tho tissue of
the tree stem Just within the bark,
completely encircling the stem, all
rrowth being killed above tho point
where tho mistletoe had germinated.
