"phosphorescent Teas" In Paris
One of the latest fads of fashionablft Paris is called the "phosphorescent five o'cloek." Candles or lamps are not used for illumination. The walls and ceiling, as well as the floor of the room and the furniture, are all covered witi a phosphorescent mixture whlch absorbs light during the day and beoomes luminous at dusk. Even the flowera ■vv-ith whlch the room ie deoorated, and the pictures which hang on the 'wall, and the cups and saucers and plates used at these entertainments are subjected to a phosphorescent treatment, so that everything Is bathed in a mystic glow. Not to be out of harmony wlth their eurroundings, the Iadie3 bidden to these functions wear "pihosphorescent gowns" whioh gleam witn a strange unearthly glow. In short, the only things that remain unillumind appear to be the minds of the wearers.
