to expire by limitation and that the Society expend its efforts in
new fields. If in so doing we accomplish one-tenth as much good
as we have in promoting fruit growing through the trial orchards
we may be well satisfied. A discussion of the orchards will be
offered by the Trial Orchard Committee.
The publications of the Society during the year were prac-
tically the same as those of the preceding year. Wisconsin Horti-
culture, including two supplements; January, Proceedings of
American Pomological Society; and April, Control of Insects and
Diseases; the Annual Report, and several leaflets. It has been
the policy of your Secretary as Editor of the Report to include
in it only matter of permanent value and to secure such a care-
ful revision of the fruit and flower tree and plant lists that it
might serve as a reliable guide to prospective planters as well as
an all year reference book.
We have worked in close cooperation with the departments
of horticulture, plant pathology and entomology, as well as with
the various branches of the State Department of Agriculture.
Our connection with the Wisconsin State Beekeepers Association
has been strengthened during the year and the pleasant relations
established will undoubtedly continue. Beginning with January
of this year the Beekeepers Auxiliary will add nearly 800 names
to our mailing list, each one of which will some day be con-
verted to horticulture. While there may be many readers of
Horticulture who do not read the four pages devoted each month
to beekeeping, they must keep in mind that the addition of these
pages has not reduced the number of pages of horticultural read-
ing matter. We have aided the State Fair Board in such ways
as we could and maintain cordial relations with them.
We have spent all the money allotted us by the state and every
other dollar that came into our possession, going on the theory
that the money was appropriated to be spent. We hope it has
been wisely spent.
But one new local Society has been organized during the year,
the La Crosse County Society.
An account of the work of the established local Societies dur-
ing the year has been placed in file and will be published in con-
nection with this report.
On motion of Mr. Toole, the Secretary's report was adopted.
