rees where people appropriate the
forks and spoons. It cost, they say,
$ 10 , 000 .
The assemblage was promiscuous,
to say ths least. Every one who
asked for an invitation got one and
went. The minister had hired the
house nezt the legation and cut
doors into it so that there should
be plenty o f room, hut even then
there wss not sufficient space to
contain the miscellaneous guests.
There were two orchestras, but no
ono wanted to dunce. Every one
wandered about through the rooms
or lolled in the grottoes, which were
lighted with different colored lamps.
In ¿very corner were fountains
of cologne, around which the gen
tler sex stood in crowds saturating
their handkerchiefs, some of which
had cross stitch initials in red
thread. Mirrors were placed at the
end o f each room to prolong the
vista. “ Mexico” in enormous let

the entrances. And, as for the sup

White heather is not so rare as
most people imagine. Albino freaks
of all kinds of heath and heather
sre often found, especially among
the ling or true heather—calluna
vulgaris— and more frequently on
the downs of Surrey and Sussex
than in Scotland. The superstition
that white heather brings luck to
the wearer admits o f some rational
explanation, because a successful
searcher would probably possess
alertness ana other qualities. The
