injj~    deed is the girl, with a gar den
who has a birthd-iy this month, o
she may give a party and cull tlhe
flowers of her own raising for the decorations. A-
gat den is such a delight that every girl should har,-
one of her osn to work in, even though it he only a
tilts one-a cornser in a city hack yard, a stitot
N, irdow in her house, or a strip of lawn if she lives
i , the cotintry where it is possible to have mosre
,iace tot cultivate. Any intelligent and carefiii girl
cant grow some kind of a flower, and alter a few trials

for hionme decorationis or perhaps So sell. atnd sithie
way is one of the plans for econiomy. Tr) it.-
A Garden Hat will he found usefuil at thi, i-sa-
,onru of the year. and a pretty one mtay he lad ioanid
fromtt a paimleaf fan and a yard of white Swiss wNith
colonred dots. Cut out a circle fronm the centre nnI
tite faii to fit the head and finish the rtuigh edges
with a narrow frill of the Swiss. Make a four-
ltooped how with two ends, of three-inch-wide strips
of the Swiss, to form the crown. Attach strips of
the Swiss to both sides of the circle for strings, and
make a face trimming of a wider frill of the Swiss
inn ittatcli the crown. Cut off the handle of the fant
atcl tack the ends of the how there with a stitch or
t-,. White Swiss with a colored dot combine,
lrtttily with the ecrui shade of the fatt and will nott
lade so qtiickly as does a plain colored lawn. Sitch
a hat costs less thati twenty-five cents, is light atml
snttfortahle to wear and very becoming.
