The first Monday in December 1884 an exhibition, to continue six months, will be opened in New Orleans, and it is proposed to make pomology an especial object of interest in the exhibition. Mr. Parker Earle, Cobden, Ills., has taken in hand the working up of this branch, and all horticulturists should take a pleasure in aiding him. He will be glad to give all the needed information. From what we understand, we have an impression that nothing like what this will be, has ever been seen in this country.
