11 WAUJPACA COUNTY AS SEEN FROM ABROAD. John Corse-I think it is because the Wilson are so much later that they bring a better price in Racine market. The growers have not commenced shipping to any amount yet. I think it is because of their lateness that they bring more and stand so well with the growers there. Prof. Goff-I took the report of the American Pomological Society, which gives reports for all sections of the United States. I expected to find that the Wilson had been super- seded. As a rule I did not find it so. The Wilson stood first znd the Crescent next. I think the plan pursued by J. 3M. Smith is the one that will keep up the character of the plants.

Motion carried and the president ap- pointed the committee on awards to revise the premium list and make such changes as they deemed necessary. Adjourned. WAUPACA COUNTY AS SEEN- FROMN ABROAD. By A.
