           Irarabiings of te Contention
  HELD AT WHITEWATER, DECEMBER 15TH, 1855.

vious evening, the Convention organized at 9

             WINTER FRUITS.
                      NortheriiSpy.
  J. C. BRAYTON, of Aztalan-Tree hardy; unproductive while
young; quality " best."
' ABEL SLocui4 Whitewater-Has fruited this variety, at 2, 3,
  d4 years from grafts inserted in standard trees. Should always
be worked on strong stocks.
  A. (. HANFoRD, of Waukesha-Will do well root-grafted;
trees disposed to bear but few specimens while young; think it
will eventually prove very productive.
  A. CHILD, of Delafield-Has had a few specimens from trees
seven years planted; consider it a shy bearer while young, trees
very vigorous, upright growers; the branches should be well thin-
ned, and the head of the tree kept open if well ripened fruit is
sought; think the character of this variety not sufficiently estab-
lished in this State to recommend for extensive planting.
  C. H.wizy, of Milwaukee-Has trees 9 years planted which
have not yet blossomed; they grow well; soil a clayey loam.
   It was moved to recommend for general culti-
vation.
