~~- -- f ---- 62 FiFTr-FIRST ANNUAL REPORT OF 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.
