M. Chretien (writes our Lyons contemporary) has this year given us in the Pare de laTete d'Or, some pretty examples of what he terms " mosaiculture," in the shape of beds containing mottoes and devices set out with colored foliage plants. Our Scottish neighbors seem to have carried the idea farther, with an eye to business as well as ornament. On a hillside not far from Glasgow may be read the words Glasgow News in gigantic letters, each forty feet long and six feet broad, formed of colored foliage plants. The inscription occupies a length of one hundred yards, and covers a space just 1,450 times the size of the journal it advertises. - Garden.
