That is invariably the deduction drawn by the British visitor to Paris. Women critics go a little further. They take In at a glanco the freshness ns rvnll no flirt pmnt-innee fVirt fllO freshness as well as thc neatness of tho footgear, the harmony of the details— of the hat with the mantle, the mantle with the dress, and the petticoat with ail— and they say: 'How much they must spend on their dress.' None seem to realise that the real se cret of the Frenchwoman's elegance lies deeper than her taste— incontestable though that is. It lies iu her pocket. SHE RULES THE HOME. Nowhere have women a more advan tageous position in the family than they have in France.

Speaking generally, the returns in most districts are up i.o exiiucouuiu...-,, nnd tho quality of the fruit that has already been gathered is above tho average. It is also cleaner and freer from disease than is sometimes tho case with orchard pruduce at this time of the year. In some pnrts of the State the stone fruits, such as upricots and pouches, were seriously injured by frosts which occurred two month ntfo. Fortunately, this severe and unseasonable weather was not general, otherwise the fruit crops mentioned would have been a com- , plele failure. The Castlemaine and , iiendigo districts appear to have suf- j fared most, and the returns fr'm j those places will be small in con e. qiience.
