In England the Lilac Is Considered
Fatal to Love Affairs. .
There are' many stiiieiWltlotts fancies
alsiut the lilac. It Is the flower which
is fatal to love affairs.
Though tlie m-ent is ro awet and
lilac tints are so fix-sh and lscoiiiiiig,
country cirls rarely wear this flower
as a buttonhole, "She who wears lilae
will never wear a wedding ring. runs
an old proverb. A Ismtonniere of lila'c
Is pal for dearly by solitary spiiister
hood. Tlie village maiden lets tbe
lilac bush jw-vercly alone. 1 ,
