One of the prettiest cheap garden ornaments we saw recently in a ride through Allentown. It was in a very poor person's garden, to judge by surroundings, but worthy of imitation in a place of more pretentions. A piece of old terra cotta pipe with a flange had been planted over a Honeysuckle and the plant drawn up through it; the next year another piece of pipe had been fastened into the flange, and the plant led up again. The Honeysuckle had for some years been growing in this way, drooping over some five feet of pipe. Possibly it would do as well trained up to a stake, but somehow we do not think it would look as well as this did. At any rate, this was a stake that would never rot away.
