(Canada) SPECIAL CLASS. THE PRESIDENT'S CUP-SWEEPSTAKES PRIZE. The two exhibits scoring the highest in each group, as determined by the specifications applicable to that group, will be selected to form this class. For the best and most comprehensive exhibit of commercial varieties in this class and as representing the state or section from which it comes, the President, Mr. Edward N. Loomis, of New York, offers a Silver Cup. No person, however, will be allowed more than one prize. The exhibit, therefore, ranking second in the Group which takes the Silver Cup will be awarded the first prize in that Group. The julges, in their preliminary determinations, will, therefore, make one more award than the prize list calls for, to provide for this necessity.

GENERAL NOTES.

PURPOSE OF THE EXHIBIT. To show the Dezielopment, and Condition of the Commercial varieties in the various sections, states and groups at that season of the year, i. e., the first

of August. The buyers cannot personally visit all sections. Therefore, BRING THE SECTIONS TO THEM.

It is also fully recognized that fruit is not matured by August 1st. The question of maturity has nothing to do with this exhibit. We want to see how the crop has progressed up to that time, and an immature apple has just as great a chance as a matured apple, providing it is up to the standard for its particular section or state at that season of the year.

In other words the variety of seasons in the various states are taken into account by the judges in making their awards, and everyone is on an equal footing, regardless of whether the fruit is full grown or not.

WHAT TO EXHIBIT. (1) WE WANT THIS YEAR'S FRUIT. Take it as it is on or about Jugust 1st.

(2) PICKED FRUIT OR FRUIT ON THE BRANCHES, OR BOTH, ARE EQUALLY WELCOME. At the preceding exhibits small branches with the fruit on them have been shown with much profit. This indicates the development of the fruit, distribution, foliage, etc. YOU MAY EXHIBIT EITHER WAY OR BOTH WAYS, AS YOU PREFER. WE SUGGEST SENDING BOTH, IF CONVENIENT. HOWEVER, DO NOT FEEL THAT IT IS NECESSARY.

(3) Commercial Varieties are wanted, and the awards will be upon this basis.

WHO MAY. Extcome-growerhibited is raised EV

It is open to the world. Anyone is welcome-growers, dealers, consumers, associations or selling agencies, whether the fruit exhibited is raised by them or not. IT IS NOT NECESSARY THAT THE FRUIT EXHIBITED BE RAISED BY THE PERSON WHO EXHIBITS IT, OR THAT IT COME FROM A SINGLE ORCHARD OR A SINGLE OWNER. IT MUST, HOWEVER, BE EXHIBITED AS THE PRODUCT OF THE STATE WHERE IT WAS ACTUALLY RAISED.

LIMIT ON NUMBER OF VARIETIES. It is not necessary that you exhibit the full MAXIMUM number of varieties mentioned in the CLASS RULES to be eligible to an award, providing your exhibit, whatever its number, is COMPREHENSIVE and truly represents the COMMERCIAL VARIETIES of the State or Section it purports to represent.

SPECIAL NOTES. 1. Mr. C. A. Kerr, 79 West South Water Street, Chicago, Ill., will have special charge of the arrangement of the exhibits. If anything special is reį quired in the way of arrangements, communicate with him direct. You are i also welcome to arrange your own exhibit.

2. No entrance fee is charged.

3. No exhibitor shall enter more than one exhibit from the same state or province.

4. No exhibitor shall receive more than one prize.

5. In sending your exhibit be sure to keep each variety separate with the name clearly indicated. Enclose a separate card giving your name, address, the state from which the exhibit comes, and all the varieties sent. To assist those who arrange the exhibit, specify whether the varieties are summer, fall or winter. Do not fail to do this. Also write Mr. Kerr at the above address, notifying him that you have sent an exhibit and by what route, from wha: state, and giving him a list of the varieties.

6. In judging the exhibits, the size and development of the fruit for the season of the year peculiar to the state or section from which it comes, its, smoothness, regularity and free:lom from disease and blemish will be con-' sidered.

7. If you do not bring your exhibit personally, send it by express or any : way you choose, to C. A. Kerr, Hotel Sherman, Chicago, Ill., and time it to : arrive by Monday, August 5th, or Tuesday the 6th ; but don't wait until Tuesday if you can avoid it.

8. For further information address the Secretary, R. G. Phillips, 612 Mercantile Bldg., Rochester, N. Y.

SEND AN EXHIBIT. There is nothing easier. All you have to do is to collect a few apples, put them in a small box and send them on to Chicago. C. A. Kerr and the judges will do the rest.

The exhibit last year was the best yet held and overflowed the space provided for it. This year we have larger quarters, more prizes and more elaborate arrangements. Last year we had fruit all the way from England to the Pacific Coast.

IT IS A GREAT ADVERTISEMENT. It pays to advertise. Show what you have. There is no better place or better time throughout the year. This Show gets all sections together. It brings the buyer and seller into close relation. It broadens one's view. It is one of the most important features of the meeting, and is rapidly coming to be the most important.

SEE THAT YOUR SECTION IS REPRESENTED. Many of the states and parts of Canada are planning to make extensive exhibits. Virginia promises to be unusually well represented. The State of New York seems to be losing its energy and, unless it arouses itself, some of the other places will outstrip it. New York should show what it can do.

An Inspiring Letter from
He Will Meet You in Chicago

New York, V. Y., July 4th, 1912.
To my Shipper-Vates :

“There is a place for everything, and everything in its place." There is also a time for everything. This is the time of the year for conventions, and great conventions meet at Chicago.

A convention is a get-together party for mutual pleasure and profit.

August 7th is the time, Chicago is the place of our get-together party of this year. “Progress" is the watch word of our age, and we are to have a progressive convention at Chicago this season. The conservatives or stand-patters will be there in full force, the radicals or plungers will also be there to give evidence of the result of their operations for the past season. There will be no scrap about election of officers, because every officer is anxious to have the honors passed on. There will be, however, lots of action, plenty of red fire and electricity, and live cliscussions over the many matters of general interest

to the apple industry. We have been fighting the year through for certain laws under which the apple industry might be regulated and standardized, and likewise for certain privileges from the Railroads by which the crop of apples could be better distributed over a longer period of time. These measures and reforms are of great importance to the future of our business.

We must line up under these new conditions and find out what meaning they have for us and for our future.

We must not only get together, but we must work together for more business-like methods in the apple industry, for a greater security in investing in apples. We must point out the evils by which we are handicapped in making our living, and we must combine together to overcome those evils.

We have in sight the largest apple crop since 1896, but with conditions so changed that the greatest problems must be considered before successful investments can be made. There was a time when one apple producing section of the country was of great importance in determining the value of apples for the coming season. The apple production has so increased, and in such widely separated sections, that one must have accurate knowledge of conditions in all apple producing States in order to let him know what to do in those sections in which he is more particularly interested.

Where are the outlets for this enormous crop ? We must find out the conditions in the United States, in Europe, in Canada, and in South America,

so that we may know who will want the apples that we intend to buy. These i important considerations, as well as the increasing importance of our Associa? tion itself, make this convention of possibly greater importance than any preceding convention.

No member can afford to miss this convention. Outside of the practical value to be obtained by getting together, there is the pleasure of once more meeting those of like minds and similar occupation. Let every member bring as many of his family as possible, and come with the intention of having the best time that we ever had.

Time would fail to tell all of the features of interest, excitement and pleasure that have been planned to make this convention a success. As for me, I intend to take a vacation in advance to get prepared for this convention. I am going to rest up so as to be able to spend as little time in sleep at Chicago as possible. Personally I want to hear all about you and yours, and all about the apple business in every apple producing section, and in every apple buying city, and I know you feel the same.

Let us get together early. The informal gatherings on the night before the convention, viz., the evening of Tuesday, August 6th, are always most enjoyable.

Come one, come all, come early, stay late, and let us find out whether there is anything in this apple game or not.

EDWARD N. LOOMIS.
