We noted recently the rapid rate at which Denver has sprung into the ranks of horticulture. It has now a State Horticultural Society, the first meeting being held in June, at Denver. Strawberries, gooseberries, and currants were the chief fruits, and some Ben Davis apples of Colorado growth were exhibited from last autumn's crop. Fuchsias, geraniums, and leaf plants were among the pot plants exhibited. The principal exhibitors of flowers were Avery Gallup and Rushmore &. Co. Cut flowers were in great quantity. So successful was the exhibition that another will be held in the autumn.
