Mr. Geo. Foust, one of the most enthusiastic lovers of new and rare plants, and an excellent florist, left Philadelphia a year or so ago and pitched his tent among the fishermen of Barnegat. It is barely possible these good people may know enough of horticulture to recognize a "Fish" Geranium, or the "Dolphin" flower, but if so, but little more. However, Mr. Foust has still his greenhouses and his nice plants, and there is the mail and the express office, and perhaps he may succeed with his sales, and still please the fishermen.
