M. Charles Joly, ex-Vice-President of the Horticultural Society of France, in a note on the School of Arboriculture and Viticulture of Geisenheim, pays a high tribute to America. He shows that with all the mineral necessary to the arts, a climate and soil that will produce everything, and a unity of language and public policy over the whole northern continent, it must in time be independent of the rest of the world. He gives figures of the enormous product in fruit of California alone, as enough to excite the wonder of the world.
