which will be used for charitable1,
purposes. More than ninety differ!
exhibits were iar ranged when ilia j
d.ooi -- were opened, and more than J
two hundred varieties of blooms were
represented. Especial attention has!been
called to the profusion of nur- |
ser.v floweis furnished by Mr. E. C. j |
Bobbins, of Piheola, from his Gar-}dens

demand prompts them to announce
the flow or show as an annua! event,

a dahlia show. This movement is expected

flowers, and in the protection of e
