opens the way for business, enlarges your field, fosters a spirit of good will and stands for the "square deal.” The only way to get acquainted is to be on the job. We pass this way but ONCE. Let us make the most of each day and the opportunities that will never come again.

THE BANQUET. The banquet will be held on Thursday evening, the 6th, at 7 o'clock. Price $3.00 per plate. Informal dress will prevail. DRESS SUITS ARE PROHIBITED. Any man caught with a "spike-tail” on his back will be dropped from the top of Bunker Hill Monument. As for the ladies, there are no regulations. They wouldn't obey them anyway.

If you do not get your money's worth, we will erect a monument to you on Boston Common. Those who have attended our banquets will need no further inducement. This will be the best yet.

THE WELCOME. The Boston membership is a unit in enthusiasm and co-operation respecting this Convention. They are a splendid body of men whom to meet and know is a pleasure. We are not at liberty to divulge their plans but we can vouch for the fact that you will be cordially welcomed and that your stay among them will be most enjoyable.

The following special committees will represent Boston:

ENTERTAINMENT-Cecil H. Cummings, Chairman; George H. Stoddard, Cutler Downer, A. W. Otis, Fred Lord and G. V. Mead.

RECEPTION--Fred Lord, Chairman; A. W. Otis, G. H. Taylor, Cecil H. Cummings, Henry W. Tinker.

The Cincinnati, Evansville, Chicago and Middle Western Special

If Henry Weil has his way, and we think he will, a special convention train will be run to Boston for the August meeting. Brother Weil usually puts over the thing he starts for. It is planned to have special cars from various parts of the West, Middle West and Southwest move via Cincinnati and Chicago, the two sections meeting at Cleveland and consolidating into one at that point.

This is a splendid plan and can be worked out to great advantage. Get busy in your cities, counties, villages and states, and take this matter up with Mr. Weil. His address is 106 East Front St., Cincinnati, Ohio.

In the picture above you will note C. A. Kerr at the throttle. Carl Piowaty is ringing the bell on the near side. W. B. Geroe and Henry Dunlap are shoveling coal. (They are getting their hands in.) Weil is rounding up new members in the baggage car along with David Gamble and V. R. Culbertson. No one can escape; that is why the windows are so small. The President is in the diner, as usual, eating his favorite corned beef and cabbage preparatory to a watermelon nightmare. John Denney, A. G. Zulfer, R. J. Coyne, S. A. Wheelock, C. H. Weaver, John Gazzolo, C. H. Williamson and G. W. Hunt were—well, we “dassent” tell what they were doing. Anyway, it is no wonder that accidents occur. At Ashtabula George Richardson and L. K. Sutton will try to fire the whole lot and take control, but T. D. Turner will be practicing his speech with a six shooter in each hand and they will decide to wait until they reach Buffalo and call in Fred Brennisen and the police. Raymond Bahr and S. Segari will be rear brakemen. Segari goes on under the Full Crew Law, with no work. H. J. Sellmeyer and N. G. Gibson will run the electric headlight and W. L. Wagner has been granted the Lemon and Selser Concession. (What a shame!) John Hile and Ben Miller will peddle peanuts and popcorn, and C. H. Kelly will accompany them delivering lectures on diet. Don't miss them. A short stop will be made at Gasport. After an Address of Welcome by Mayor Pease, C. B. Shafer will entertain with his celebrated Lynnhaven spectacle. More later. But, speaking real seriously, GO TO IT. GET UP A REAL

ET LIFE SÍZED TRAIN. RIDE INTO BOSTON IN A MANNER BEFITTING THE OCCASION AND THE CITY. See Henry.

JILL you key your enthusiasm and energy to the acting
W

and doing point? Will you help make the FIFTH AN-

Sweepstakes prize, the Department of Agriculture, Toronto Fruit Branch, Province of Ontario, Canada.

The exhibit is open to the world and without charge. Growers dealers, associations, state departments and horticultural societies are cordially invited and urged to send an exhibit. Our own members are requested to take it up with their local growers and organizations. See that your state is well represented. Extra copies of the rules, classes and prizes may be obtained from the Secretary.

Some sections have always been well represented, notably the Middle West (including Michigan and Wisconsin), Canada and the Southern Group (including Southern Pennsylvania). The New England states, the Box states and New York were far behind until

At that time New York and the Box states came forward with excellent exhibits. New England, however, was still behind and practically without any representation. This year there can be no possible excuse for New England.

Last year the following states and provinces were unusually well represented :

Province of Ontario, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Washington, Idaho, Oregon, Colorado and Montana.

last year.

The following states were NOT represented as they should be:

New England, New Jersey, West Virginia, Maryland, Arkansas, Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, Utah, California and New Mexico.

It is easy to make an exhibit. Anyone can do it. Read the rules. Now that the Parcels Post is in operation, there is no man in the United States who cannot at least exhibit in the Single Plate Class. It isn't the work that deters. ALL THAT IS NEEDED IS A LITTLE INTEREST.

See that your state is up in the front rank. Make it a personal matter. Send us the names of possible exhibitors and we will be glad to forward the rules. Make an exhibit yourself.

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 exhibit of commercial varieties in this class and as representing the state or section from which it comes, the President, Mr. R. H. Pennington, 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 judges, in their preliminary determinations, will, therefore, make one more award than the prize list calls for, to provide for this necessity.
