Now that we have safely passed the thousand mark our next
standard should be the two thousand mark and that might easily
be reached if each member should secure one new member dur-
ing the year. Your secretary can conceive of no plan more
simple nor effective.
Since Nov. 1st, 1909, and to date the following members have
secured new members.
Benj. F. Faast, 3 members; Mrs, A. J. Schloerb, 1; Conrad
Hoffman, 4; H. J. Bennett, 1; Rev. Hengell, 3; Mr. West, 1;
J. N. McLeod, 1; Jos. T. Evenson, 1; Geo. B. Smith, 1; Danford
Larkin, 4; J. J. Miles, 4; Dr. Chas. L. Babcock, 1; Geo. Trim, 1;
F. W. Harland, 2, (life); Thos. Tollefson, 1; Dan Fisher, 2;
Edward Zade, 3; E. W. Sullivan, 3; J. B. Loverin, 2; A. K
Bassett, 1; Andrew Kull, 2; John Spencer, 1; B. S. Wright, 2;
J. C. Proctor, 1; G. M. Breakey, 10; Walter A. Conant, 1; 0.

INANCEE.
The Treasurer's report in addition to showing in detail how
the money was expended will also show that we lacked $35.00
on July 1st, 1909, to meet our obligations. Neither the Board
of Managers nor the Executive Committee however has seen in
this any cause for alarm nor grounds for criticism but feel
rather that everyone concerned in the expenditure of our appro-
priation is to be congratulated on spending this money.
The people of this state through the legislature entrusted this
fund to us to be spent in the development of horticulture in the
state and not start a savings bank. That it should be wisely,
carefully and economically expended should be the concern of
every member of this society.
