Most of these have their annual meetings in January; and after a while we shall have requests foru "notices," to appear in our January number. It does not seem to occur to all of our readers that the preparation of a monthly magazine begins a month before the date of its appearance. At the time of this writing we have no notice at hand of any one of those meetings. We can only say that in former times, when devoted to fruit growing for market chiefly, they were always interesting, but since the most of them have changed from pomological to horticultural societies, and now take in every branch of gardening, they appeal to every person of intelligent culture, and are more than ever worthy of the support of the best people in the districts where the meetings are held.
