If there be any one left who thinks " Fruit Growers' Associations " are made up of men who meet together to talk only of the prospects of the fruit crop, and the probable effects of the winter on prices, they should get this report.

We note they have to discuss "the yellows in the peach" in Canada, as well as in other places, We note also that white peaches are preferred to yellow kinds for drying.
