Garden Flowers Favorites.
The old-fashioned garden flower,
Khich for a long time was consider
not worth planting in a modem gar
den, has returned to favor with great
tr glory than before. Through the
wizardry of Burbank and others of
his ilk, the homely flowers have been
improved so that they rival the frail
hothouse plants which for years have
been favorites for party decorations.
Peonies which used to bloom un
ostentatiously in the garden corner
now furnish lavish decorations for
our largest church weddings. Scarcely
a wedding has been solemnized in
Omaha this year since the peonies
came into bloom that they have not
been used to line the path of the
bride with flowers. Deep red peonies
have been most opportune to carry
out patriotic decorations of red, white
and blue. The white may be supplied
by many flowers, the carnation, which
is the old garden pink in glorified
form, or bridal wreath, snowballs or
for the blue- we use the odd old-
asnionea larkSDur. wmcii erew in
grandmothers gardens lone vears ago.
tit which is one of the best liked
flowers of todav. At the orettv wed
ding of Mr. and Mrs. John T. Wilkes
this week larkspur was combined with
pinic roses tor a centerpiece on the
serving table, while baskets of peonies
gave the flower touch to the rooms.
One of the prettiest flowers now in
use is the. snapdragon, which has been
raised from a very humble place to
one of great favor. The snapdragon
was formerly a small plebian flower
in two tones of uninteresting yellow.
Now it has had added delicate tones
of pink and white which make it
popular not only for the adornment
of luncheon and dinner tables, but
for the bouquet of a lifetime, the
bride's bouquet. '
Since war has brought us closer to
France in civil life we are beginning
to find new links of sympathy with
that country in various matters of
sentiment. The old garden flowers,
which the plant naturalist has devel
oped until it resembles its French
counterpart, is the common purple
flag. The flag, or iris, has the same
shape as the famous fleur de lis of
France, the emblem of the French
nation. It resembles the orchid and
hy those who are bold enoueh to
hink the orchid a stiff, ungainly
nower, despite its very exclusive
price, it is thought far more beautiful.

The wolf is at the door of the world, so Mr. Hoover reminds' us, and he would meet it"
with the Food-Control Bill that aims to reduce the cost of living in the United States and to
' bring victory nearer by feeding her Allies.
"In the last five months," says Mr. Hoover, "$250,000,000.00 has been extracted from the .
American consumer in excess of normal profits of manufacturers and distributors." As evi
dence that the unprecedentedly high prices of food are largely due to "rampant speculation,"
he points out that "the average prices to the consumers in countries where food administration ,
is now in effect are lower than those prevailing in the United States, although those countries
are mainly dependent upon us for their supply." . " , ,
In THE LITERARY DIGEST for June 30th, this most important subject to the American' ,
public is presented in all its ramifications. THE DIGEST telegraphed to newspaper editors in
every section of the country asking for an expression of the local sentiment as to the Food-Control
Bill, and the results of this investigation are shown. There is no other subject that more
directly concerns the people of Canada and the United States today. -
