This body will hold its next meeting in the Grand Pacific Hotel, Chicago, on the 16th of June, 1880. We believe it will be profitable for all having the best interests of the trade at heart to attend. A correspondent suggests that as a great national political meeting is to be held there a little before that time, and some might like to attend both, would it not be well to have the meeting of nurserymen earlier? We have promised to give his idea notice, but do not advocate it. The writer had good experience in this " killing two-birds with one stone" idea at the Centennial. They all turned out, as did his boyish effort with the birds illustrated. He never did kill two birds with one stone, nor did he ever meet the boy who did. The attempts always failed. One thing at a time seems to be the best for all things.
