The Corsage Bouquet.
The corsage bouquet is one of the
prettiest fancies in dress ornamenta-
tion. On special occasions, when one
wishes the austerely tailor-built cos-
tume to take on a glorified and festal
air, a modish flower arrangement
pinned to the coat front will work a
very pretty miracle. The most fash-
ionable of these artificial posies is a
combination of orchids with lilies of
the valley, or, if the bouquet is of
violets or roses, sprays of lily of the
valley must be fucked in.
For the Small Boy.
One of the prettiest novelties this
season is the suit of brown linen for
small boys. These are embroidered
with silk to match. Sailcloth ig a
practical material; it launders well,
holding its cclor. For warm weather
these are made with knickerbockers
and tunic tops caught about the waist
with a belt. Dark blue sailcloth linen
with collars and cuffs of white is a
other pretty combination.
It is said on good authority that
corded weaves will be very popular
in the autumn. These new ribbed fab
rics will include materials so light in
weight as to be suitable for dress dra-
peries and heavier ones adapted for
suits, outer wraps ana trimmings
pressed air furnishes the force by
which the water is driven out of the
tank and through the distributing
pipes as the supply is demanded. This
is a principle of physics known as
Boyle's law. If the air in the tank,
when empty of water, is compressed
until it occupies one-half of its orig-
inal volume, then the pressure will be
twice the original pressure, which in
this case will he about 15 pounds to
the square inch The higher the water
rises in the tank, the greater will be
the pressure developed. This may he
as high as 125 pounds to the square
inch, if occasion requires, but 40
pounds pressure is generally sufficient
for all the requirements usually de-
manded In a house plant. These
pressures are easily attained with a
