The following advice from a letter in regard to gardeners going to Australia is good for those who come to America:

" I would advise any one coming out here not to go into business at once, had he ever so much money. Let him take a situation, get acclimated, study the climate, its effects on flowers, plants and vegetables. Mark well the ways of the colonial people, take time to consider over things, and read all the newspapers, which he will find even in an up-country station far more plentifully than he will in a village at home. When he has made up his mind to start business he will then be able to select a suitable locality".
