We are glad to note the increasing use of chromo-lithography in advertising. Mr. Henderson, Mr. Dreer, Mr. Heinl, Mr. Pennock, Mr. A. Scott, and more recently Mr. Stone with the Pocklington grape have set an example that we are sure must soon have many followers. A plate colored to nature will tell more at a glance than a half-hour studying of a mere verbal description. It is of course costly to take a page of advertising in the shape of a colored plate, but we are sure that Mr Stone's advertisement will pay him.
