Geneva seems to be making a mark in the Plum trade. We noted last year bow abundant and how profitable they were in that city. This year the trade has spread, and we noted cases with prime Green Gages, very numerously in Philadelphia, marked S. C Wil-lard, Geneva, N. Y., on them. Prices seem to rule a trifle lower than last year, but this is to be expected, as knowledge of the way to grow them spreads. Still, when people come to know that good plums are to be had in the market the demand will keep up the price.
