"C. H. S.," Philadelphia, Pa., writes: "Can you inform us where we can find an association that will insure florists' hot-houses By giving us immediate information you will greatly oblige".

There is no such association. Horticulturists seldom care to insure against fire, as any intelligent forethought is security enough. The only serious enemy is hail stones, against which there is no one to insure. Last year the florists commenced a movement for mutual insurance against hail. The company is ready to issue policies.
