Among the many changes so frequent in gardening and nursery establishments it is pleasant to note the fact of Mr. T. R. Trum-pey having just passed his twenty-fifth year as propagator to the Messrs. Parsons, of Flushing. A quarter of a century with one firm is truly remarkable. Of the many thousands of rare trees now giving pleasure to numbers over the length and breadth of the land, how much of this pleasure is due to Mr. Trumpey's labors ! It may be that he is not yet rich in this world's goods, (how that may be we do not know) but he must at least be rich in the satisfaction he must feel when he thinks of these things.
