WINCOW BOXES in PARIS.
The Parisians are taking up tb -
dea of decorating the fronts of
their houses with window boxes of
flowers. 1 he English have done this
for many years, and this year the
Americans, although in most cases
away from home themselves, have
left the windows of their town resi
dences filled with bloom for the ben
efit of the stay in town unfortu
But the Parisians obtained their
incentive from a wealthy man who
kept his house decorated in this
manner during the last visit of the
English king to the French capital.
Now his example has been eagerly
followed, and prizes are even being
offered for the most tastefully ar
ranged window flowers. Bulbs,
seeds and small sprouts have been
distributed by prominent Parisians
to encourage the poor to interest
themselves in this pleasant manner
of improving the squalid portions
of the city.— Philadelphia Ledger.
