The largest fruit exhibit apples and
pears tivcr shown at a state meeting,
according to Dr. W. L. Howard, Secre
tary of the Missouri State Board of
Horticulture, will be seen at the "win
ter institute" in Columbia. Jan. a to 8.
"The cash prizes ottered for this ex
hibit amount to twice that ever offered
by any State," Dr. Howard told a re
porter for the University Missourian.
"Although it i an otr year on account
of the late frosts, the large number ol
small exhibits which are attracted will
in the aggregate make a very fine dis
play. There are many states which have no
crop of apples this year; but by a little
exertion Missouri can present one of
the biggest displays ever seen. Dr.
Howard thinks. The contest is open to
every fruit grower and farmer -in the
State. The meeting, coming in the
midst of "farnier.s week." will have
perhaps a thousand farmeis. dairymen.
stockmen and fruit growers from all
parts of the State in attendance. Many
things of interest to the Missouri fiuit
growers will be disciicd. and experts
from other state will meet for an e
change of ideas.
Scope of New Board.
To this end the present Imard va
provided for by the Legislatuie of 1!07.
There had previously existed in Missouri
a State Ilorticultin.il Society more than
fifty years old. it being one of the oldest
in the country. The new board is estab
lished on more practical and cvteiishc
lines. The State is divided into si
horticultural ditiict. From each of
tlie-e districts is appointed a member
of the Executive Committee, of which
V. P. Stark of Louisiana. Mo., is Presi
dent. The Coventor, the State Super
intendent of School-, and the profe-sor
of Horticulture in the University of
Mis-outi are evollicio members.
A Secretary from without the Hoard
is provided by law. Dr. W. L. Howaid
of the University was chosen for this
position with headquarters at the Hor
ticultural liuilding in Columbia. The
law- provides that two "institutes" 1k
held each year one each winter in Col
umbia, the other in summer at what
ever other point the Hoard thinks fit.
With the Hoard are affiliated many
fruit growers' association throughout
the State and an effort is being made to
organize every county which grows
enough fruit to meet home demands.
The salarv of the Secretary, the ex-
lieiises of delegate cnt to study 1011
ilition in othir State, a well a thoe
attached to the meeting, and the prie.
are paid by the State.
At the meeting, paitieuhir attention
will be paid to the liet methods of
aring for fruit. The Hoaid ha adopt
ed the policy of sending delegates to
various parts of the I lilted Mates to
ibscrie peeial indutrie. One peach
"tower was sent to Ceorgia to tndy
methods of production and handling
peaches. Another who rai-e canta
loupes as well as fruit was ent to Colo
rado. Other siiecesstul apple grower
were sent to Washington and Oregon
and other parts of the Northwest. One
if these. T. II. Todd, will -.tax long
nough to see the crop picked, packed.
All these will at the winter meeting
report on what they have -ecu.
Packing Apples Well.
One ucceful hippcr will be here
from the Northwet to demonstrate the
different methods of packing apples for
shipment. This will haw particular
value for Missourian-, who have liecn
careless in packing and grading. The
old plan of packing in three bushel
barrels is giving way to for the lietter
sorted and bettcr-cared-for bushel 1k
The Northwest has found that to sort
carefully, wrap each apple in tissue
paper, and ship in lxes pays.
Florists are afliliated with the Hor
ticultural Hoard and will have on dis
play at the winter meeting a collec
tion of (lower. The Hoard desires par
ticularly to encourage the organization
of societies that will take up the or

NEW YORK, Dec. 10. Christian
Scientists throughout the world are
watching development in Boston and
New York with deep and anxious inter
est. The very general impression pre
vails that a crisis in the history of the
cult is right at hand.
The crisis centers around the appar
ent approaching death of Mrs. Baker C.
Kddy and the remarkable defiance of
an otlicial edict issued by those sur
rounding her, in Mrs. Kddy's name by
Mr. Augusta Stetson and her follow
eis of the First Church of Christ, Scientist-,
at Ninety-.-ixth street and Cen
tral Park West, this city.
In direct disolicdience to the officially
declared wish of Mrs. Kddy, the mem
ber of Mr. Stetson's tongrogation last
week voted to build another church ed
ifice to accommodate the membership,
which oxerlloued the parent church.
This action was a dclilierate repudia
tion cither of Mrs. Eddy's authority,
never iUctioucd before, or of author
ity which is lieing exercised in her
name. Close students ot the remark
able situation insist that Mr. Stetson.

Science, next to Mr-. Kddy hcr-elf,
would not have eiitured upon thi dar

the Christian Science publication, one
of the trustees in control of Mrs. Kddy's
great fortune and he shares with Al
fred Farlow supieme authority in
Chiistian Science affairs.
Desires to Succeed Mrs. Eddy.
Information in the hands of the
Christian Science leaders in Jlo-ston
leaies no doubt that Mrs. Stetson's
purpose is to succeed Mr. Eddy in su
preme authority in the church. Failing
in this she will build up a new Chris
tian Science establishment upon the
broad foundations which her genius has
already laid in this city.
Meanwhile (ieorge Oloier, Mr.. Kd
dy's only son, aided by influential
friends and able lawyers, is preparing
to renew his fight of two years ago.
