Our readers must not forget that the horticultural department of this great exposition will be one of the finest ever seen on this Continent, and all interested in horticulture will be sorry if they fail to lend a hand to ensure its success. Mr. P. J. Berckmans will leave soon for Europe, expressly to get the folks in the Old World to lend their assistance. No better representative of intelligent American horticulture could have been selected, and any honors Europeans may pay Mr. Berckmans during his mission will be appreciated here.
