Good for Cut Flowers. rf. To prolong Ui'e life of cut flowers two professors of tho School of Agriculture at Henries, France, havo recently compared tho effect of var ious solutions with that of plain water. Over 100 different kinds of flowers were tried. It wns found that moat of them would llvo and stay fresh much longer If some sugar was put Into tho water in which thoy were kept". .Sugar, however, was no help to tulips, daisies, or . chrysanthemums, and it was a positive. Injury to lilies and sweet peas. It accelerat ed the opening of tho buds, especial; ly of roses and orchids. Small quantities of chloral, ethor, glycerine,' alcohol, liino water, anrl oven ammonia salts, served to lengthen tho. Uvea of various kinds' of flowers. Tho wator thus "modi fied" should come as near as pos sible to the blossoms.' In- other words, tho . stems should bo im mersed as deeply as possible. Some of "tho flowurs kept In sugar and water lived four tlmoB as long as would ordinarily bo tho case. ...
