ern Workman. “Is believed to be the
oldest of all plants,” and it observes
that It is the only one that has none
but regal relatives. The kinfolk of the
rose are very poor. The chrysanthe
mum has been brought out of almost
the weed state, but the lily is an aris
tocrat that seems to have been so di
vinely molded that man has been un
able to change it materially. Even the
Japanese are content almost to wor
ship it as It Is. Little Japanese tots
never look so charming as when they
are admiring this thing which brings
the divine beauty of the wonderful
world Into even the most menial sur
roundings. Often this queen is found
standing majestic and adored in a sim

Nothing is to be seen but masses of
white and green. There are over 200
such farms, some from thirty to forty
acres in extent, devoted exclusively to
lily growing. The heavy perfume can
often be discerned a mile or more
away. The fragrance of a bunch of
liliee delicately scenting a room or
church is very different from the over
powering fragrance exhaled from an
Immense farm. The natives, however,
are quite resigned to the heavy per
fume, knowing that acre for acre the
growing lily Is three or four times as
profitable as the other products of the
islands. Lily bnlbs were first brought
