A gentleman in the East advertised for the first time, a year ago, a new Grape; and now we read in the annual address of a distinguished pomologist, that said grape is "making a 'furore' in Ohio".
If this statement had been made in some advertisement it would have been excusable, for some advertisers - not all by any means - cannot avoid using language which means just nothing to most people whatever it may mean to themselves. But it reads queer from a cool headed president of a pomological convention. The idea that the few berries that would be obtained from a little plant set out but a few months before, is to make a "furore" throughout a whole State, is suggestive of a more general roar than the " few-roar".
