the earliest dandelion te the lat

tne most conspicuous of all colors.
Then too. among our- cnltirated

followed by the narcissus, and
Ten among plants of various col

sies there may be found those of
Iiure yellow. Buttercups are a do
Ight to the children, and a field
of these glittering with gold is al
ways a thing of beauty, although
not a Joy to the farmer.
And what brightens up a coun
try roadside like the great masses
Of yellow primroses that bloom so
freely and so long in certain lo
calities. Then the yellow foxgloves
that light up the shady places in
damp woods certainly deserve ad
miration. Among the shrubs, the earliest
to bloom is the flowering currant;
and in some states even earlier
than these are the yellow Jasmines
iwhose golden sprays brighten up
the sombre-hued cedars, as If to
do their best to beautify the world.
Some claim white as an emblem
of purity, red of love, blue of
truth; but Is not yellow a fit em

tho seeds are rather small, it Is
well to broadcast them carfully
