R. D. Barnhardt, post-marked West Newton, Pa., sends us a seedling cherry. He does not say it is his own, but that it "originated with some fruitgrower of this locality." As it is a valuable cherry undoubtedly, and it is no use to notice things without name, we give it the name above. It is of the Big-garreau class, above medium, very solid, and very sweet, long slender stem. Fruit bright red, mottled with scarlet, and a shade of black on the sunny side. It strikes us as a valuable market fruit.
