Canning, gardener to A. Lew- isohn, will probably prove useful in a moderate way. The blooms equal in size one of the large-flowered achi- menes. Among ferns, Cyrtomium falcatum Eochfordianum was most prominently shown among the newer sorts. Platy- ceriums, although not new, were evi- dently popular with visitors, judging from the way they scrutinized them. These were remarkably well shown by W. A. Manda and a number of other exhibitors. The jurors awarded the gold medal for the best new plant to Lilium my- riophyllum, from R. & J. Farquhar & Co., and in this they made no mistake. Taken all in all, the novelties were well up to the average, even though nothing remarkable. W. N. Craig. THE BOSES. The American Rose Society took charge of affairs for Monday, April 7, and the addition of the cut blooms added wonderfully to the attractiveness of the show. Without question it was the finest display of roses that ever has been made anywhere in the world. In no other country would such quality ever be possible and it excelled all previous exhibitions in America. Never before has a rose show brought out such a magnificent lot of flowers. The quality was a revelation, even to the growers themselves. For length of stem, size of flower and perfection of form and color nothing to equal this rose show as a whole ever has been staged.
