REPORT OF DELEGATE, GEORGE N. ARPIN, TO THE
ANNUAL CONVENTION OF THE STATE HORTI-
CULTURAL SOCIETY
Mr. President, Ladies and Gentlemen:
Mr. Secker was the appointed delegate to the convention, he was
unable to go, and I was appointed substitute.
The convention was held in the assembly chamber of the state
capitol, December 11th, 12th, 13th. The program was very complete
and interesting. The exhibits were good. Not enough interest, to my
notion, was taken in the exhibits by outsiders.
About half a day was spent by the delegate in putting the cran-
berry exhibit in order, labeling the plates, etc. Several samples were
partially frosted en route, but they sorted out all right and the asso-
ciation had an exhibit of twelve attractive plates of berries. There
should have been more.
The following is a list of growers and their exhibit:
Mrs. Pauline Smith-Badger, Bennett Jumbo.
Mrs. S. N. Whittlesey-Prolific, Bennett Jumbo.
Arpin Cranberry Co.-Prolific. Bennett Jumbo, Metallic Bell, Bell
and Bugle.
Elmer Dano-Bell and Bugle.
Mr. Gebhart-Mammoth.
A. Searls and Son-Searls Jumbo.
Mr. Tuttle-McFarlin.
Mr. M. 0. Potter was elected member of the executive committee
for the eighth district.
