He has on display a quantity of carnations, which will ompriie tho bulk of the flowers liocti this year, the price being as high as 5 3 to ?3.50 per dczer.. lit : ho'.vcd a News-Times reporter some ro?-s which were shipped to him from Chicago Saturday and which were the most abiect apology for flowers that or.e could imagine.
