A very pleasing effect may Ik- pro
duced by setting a wet sHin:e lu a
glass IhiwI and sowing It over with
llnx, grass or mustard seed, or all three

covered with a thick growth of lender
green, and If It be Judiciously watered
every day the mustard will In time put
forth Its tiny yellow blis-soms. (iill

from watching these seisin growing lu

Pill a common tumbler or goblet with
wu'er, cut out u round of cotton bat

lay It gently upon the water. I'isui this
