The " Idaho Pear Company," Lewistown, Idaho, sends us a nice pear. On first glance we exclaim, "A nice Glout Morceau!" but remembering it is October and not late winter, we look more closely and note that it is more irregular than Glout Morceau, more depressed; the stalk cavity very irregular; the calyx basin very shallow, much plaited, with a very small closed calyx. The dots are very numerous, and the ripening a yellow bordering on gold. In fact the fruit has quite a quince-like aspect.

The flesh is buttery, juicy, with a perfumed and delicious flavor.

There are so many good pears in existence that we have come to regard new fruits with some suspicion. It is a crime to burden the lists with new additions, unless we believe there is a vacancy to be filled by the new comer. We believe this is one of those exceptional good fruits that deserve to be welcomed, and if the growth of tree and other qualities, of which we cannot judge from a single fruit, are equal in merit to the fruit, we may congratulate the introducers in having a good thing.
