Over 100 different kinds of flowers wero tried. Tt wns found that most of them would live and stay fresh much longer if some sugar was put into the water in which they wero Kept.

Some Eyes Find Things Easily. AH good oyca do not see alike, Pcoplo whose eyes will show tho same focus by an expert test do not see alike. They may look at the same object and see it entire ly dijferent. Some men are adepts in finding something with their eyes, while their companions who may possess just as good vision arc jtofc ablo to locate objects at all without great difficulty. The man who can walk about the iawu or iu the park and- pick up four-leaf clovers has 'an vyo that is worth big money to him. He can easily be trained to sec things that the ordinary man will miss, or have to look a long time to find. , Some men who go hunting can see a squirrel iu an oak or hickory tree with, apparent ease, while others will go strolling about the j timber and never see the animals at all. It is tho same way in the open field. The rabbit can.be found, sitting by some while others will almost run over the creature before I they can detect it. i This ability Is a gift.
