Ewtop. ScifmcELt-I attended tho
meetings of the Missouri Stnto Horti
ciilhiral Society, nblch held iu twenty
second annual session in St. Louis,
commencing January 20th and contin
uing three days; and, as the subjsct of
Horticulture is one in which the peo
ple of Holt couHty are greatly interes
ted, I will furnish you ft few notus of
the subjects dNeusied and the recom
mendations make by the practical fruit
growers who wem present.
The Society was called to order by
Korman J. Coliuan, president, who de
livered a very, interesting addre's in
which be congratulated the seciety on
what had been achieved through -the
constant zeal and long snntinuud
forts of the faithful few, who began this
work twenty-two years ugo, of which
number he only noticed two before
him in tho present meeting (Prof G.C.
Swallow and Prof. George Husmiiu)
who arc both connected with our State
Agricultural College and bth as earu
xt and zealeus in the work of Hor
ticulture as they were uearly a quarter
of a ceutury ago. It was pleasant for
him to state as Horticulturists we
were marching onward instead of back
ward, and that Missourians need not be
afraidjto exhibit their fruit in competi
tion with that from any other State.
We have seen it exhibited on several oc
casions with fruit from other States,
and it has never failed to receive the
highest honor. At the late, meeting
of the American PomologicBl Society at
RocIifWi-r, Xew Turk, tho Missouri
Horticulttiral S.vuety was awanld sev
eral medals for the best display of
iruiU: one for the heil display of fruits
made by any society; Another for the
best display of grape mads by any
society; another for the best di.1ay of
pears by my society.
We have millions of acre of the
linefct fruit lands in the wurld, that crfn
be purchased very cheap,' with iail-,
roads and markets losc by, in a most
favorable climate, centrally located,
with the best commercial advantages,
North, South, East and West of us.
The enterprising people of our State
want these lands to be settled tipon,that
their resources maybe developed; ftitd
when it is known by the public that
whenever Missouri puts in her appear
ance, she bears off the highest houors
for the productions of her soil, it is a
recommendation worth more than any
theoretical writing that can be done.
We regret to say, however, that the
enterprise which has been exhibited in
this State is confined to the few and
not the many. We must awake. We
must all work more earnestly for the
"merest of our favored State; for by
working for that we' are promoting our
individual inteicsts. There ought to be a
Horticultural Society in every county in
the State, and and each of these socle
ties ought to have delegates to tht State
.meetings. The information gathered
t ocelli! r from nil sections of the'State
could lc carefully digested, and then
disseminated throughout every nook
ami corner of the country, with the
very best results. Wo fel that the or
ganization of County Horticultural
Societies is u m'.ter of the highest im
portance to Ibv fruit growers of Mis
souri. - -
Reports of last year's fruit crops
were re.d frors several .of the congres

best in the State, and the prices obtain
ed for the same wore much higUor than
in any other part of the State.
