It is pleasant to note that the suggestion of Col. Wilder, supported by the American Pomological Society, regarding reform in names of fruits, is taking root everywhere. We are not likely any more to have such long names as " Singular triumph of the back garden gate " to a strawberry, or " Grand beauty of the hog pen corner apple;" and if the actual raiser, whom we would delight to honor, should happen to have the name of Aminidab Folderollolderol, he had better apply to the Courts to get his name changed before he applies it to his "justly celebrated and inimitable seedling grape." The sun of long names has set.
