Mr. Marques, in a communication
the first part of which appears in
this issue, discusses the functions of
agricultural societies. Wc shall not
interfere in the controversy between
the Advertiser and our correspon
dent. Yet wc should like to support
the latter in laying great stress upon
the value of such organizations when
properly directed and maintained
with a degree of vitality. In new
countries, whose capabilities of soil
and climato have never been fully
gauged, is it especially important
that there should be the greatest
possible facilities for not only the
discussion of agricultural topics, but
for co-operation between those in
terested in agriculture. Discussion
sharpens the intelligence and stimu
lates the production of fresh ideas ;
destroys mistaken theories before
loss is entailed in experimenting upon
them, and makes the valuable exper
ience of individuals the common pro
perty of all within the range of the
society's operations. Co-operation
nables necessary experimentation to
be conducted for the benefit of the
whole body at an expense little, if
any, grtatcr than would have to be
incurred by each member for the
same work, while the methods would
probably he so much superior to
those of individuals that more deci
sive results might be expected. Agri
cultural societies elsewhere do incal
culably valuable service in their
jurisdictions by the importation of
breeding stock and of new varieties
of soil products, and kindred opera
tions. There ought, in this country,
to be one central agricultural asso
ciation with branches whercvor there
is material for such. The holding
of agricultural exhibitions wo regard
as one of the most useful functions
of an agricultural Bociety, as exhibi
tions have much educative value and
afford excellent opportunities for
agriculturists to compare notes witli
each other. They are also, when
th community is made to take due
interest in them, very useful gauges
of the progress a country is making
in agricultural development.
In China and India, the female
population number 400,000,000, and,
for their medical wants, there are
about a score of physicians. There
inust be some way of dying without
doctors in China.

AH AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY'S OBJECTS.
Editor Bui.lktis: "When I be
gan my crusade, not against tho
men, but against the drifting and
suicidal tendencies of the Royal Ha
waiian Agricultural Society a cru
sade which the Advertiser, with that
liberality of views for which it is so
well known, tried to stifle up I
knew I had the approval of many
persons interested in agriculture.
One unknown "Farmer" has even
kindly given ma unexpected and
friendly assistance in the Bulletin,
and I have been pleased to seo him
express several views absolutely
identical to those which I had formu
lated myself. After stating that it
must undoubtedly be a difficult
though not impossible thing to keep
up a living and working agricultural
association in a country like our
Islands, I said that 1 was induced to
believe that one of the causes of the
decadence if such it can be called
of the present Agricultural So
ciety, is that it lacked- that liic
giviug clement, indispensable for
keeping up the public interest in it,
viz. : frecpient intercourse between
members, by personal meetings or
through written communications ;
and that it had failed in its duties
by neglecting the purely agricultu
ral and theoretical work. It would
be indeed a decided error to supposo
that yearly shows are all that is to
be expected from an agricultural
association, and that after one show,
its mission is over till next one. You
sec how I agreed with "Farmer"
and I continued by saying that, on
the contrary, unless instituted solely
for the furtherance of the interests
of some exhibitors, the real object
of a true agricultural society is to
be tho means of bringing in contact
all the people interested in agricul
tural pursuits, not at long intervals,
but as often as possible. It must
therefore aim at inducing discussion
anion? its members and even the
public generally and at awakening I
a healthy desire of communicating
their own experience and of learn
ing from others, such being, I be
lieve, one of the objects of tho
Planters' Association. And, fur
ther, a special duty of an agricultu
ral organization is to help and
reach even those who are far away,
and cannot attend to meetings or
oral discussions, and to render avail
able for them all the information
that can be gathered from all sides,
from home experience as well as
from foreign knowledge. And all
this is exactly what the present So
ciety has failed even to try to do.
Here the Advertiser in perfect con
sistency with that well-known policy
of trying to prove that, everything
hero being perfect, ftdoes not need
improvement from any foreign examples-
said that "it is idle to spend
time in discussing something which
exists elsewhere, but docs not exist
here." They might as well say that
as tobacco, ramie, flowers for per
fumery, etc., grow elsewhere but
not here, it is idle to attempt to in
troduce them here. But, as fortu
nately that paper is alone of that
sentiment, I know I shall not be
blamed for illustrating my views
about what agricultural societies
ought to do, by referring to personal
experience not because it is personal,
but because it contains a striking
argument on tho value of shows.
