We have a large number of notices of the Winter meetings of various Horticultural Societies to be held early in December, but as that will have arrived by the time the reader gets this, it is of no use to announce them. One in January, the third Tuesday, is the Fruit Grower's Society of Pennsylvania, which meets this year at Reading.
Indiana State Horticultural Society. This Society will hold its eighteenth annual session in Danville, Indiana, beginning on Tuesday, December 17th, and continue for three days. A liberal premium is offered on Winter Apples. Governer Furnas, of Nebraska, is booked for an address, as well as other distinguished fruit growers from abroad. "Come over and help us, " is what they write.
