Diploma. A small lot of very nice apple-trees, three years old, were exhibited by J. N. Savage, of Barabou; also specimens of apple-trees double-worked upon crab roots, by E. Wilcox, of Trempealeau.

We would respectfully suggest that the nursery stock” in this class be made of more importance by giving larger premiums.

One of the first and most important points in fruit-growing, is to obtain good trees, rightly named, judiciously pruned, with ample roots, etc. The exhibition by the Gould Nursery Company was an extra fine show of fruit, ornamental trees, and shrubbery, showing care in growing and skill in handling:

REPORTS OF COMMITTEES.

HORTICULTURAL DEPARTMENT AT THE STATE FAIR.

GEO. J. KELLOGG, SUPERINTENDENT.

The unusual severity of the months of January and February, 1875, the coldest two months on record, the unfavorableness of the · spring, the cold and wet summer, with hard frosts the 22d and 23d of August, throughout the State, almost destroying the grapecrop, and the State Fair coming the same week of the American Pomological Society Exhibition at Chicago, at which the Wisconsin State Horticultural Society had made arrangements for an exhibition, were combined causes, together with the fact that the State Fair was three weeks earlier than usual, in making the prospect for the horticultural department of the Wisconsin State Fair gloomy indeed.

After consulting with the officers of the Horticultural Society, and the Secretary of the State Agricultural Society, it was deemed advisable to issie a circular, urging all interested to assist by making a special effort to make a commendable show. This circular was mailed to all former exhibitors and many others. The time of the fair arrived, the hall was put in order, two crates of crockery ordered, the tables were provided with clean, white paper, and exhibitors began to spread out. Soon it became apparent that they must double up, and before the fruit was all out many had to pile three plates upon one, and the last to open had to be provided with extra room by closing one entrance and building temporary tables. The entries probably exceeded anything before made at our State Fairs in this department, numbering five hundred and twenty-five.

The center of the hall, with its entire table-room, was devoted to the floral department, H. W. Roby, superintendent. Notwithstanding the severe frosts, the cut-flowers alone could have covered the entire tables. James Vick, Rochester, N. Y., had a splendid collection, and this department of the hall was a grand success.

To give a full report of the fruit-department would be impossible. A. G. Tuttle's collection of apples was up to his usual standard of excellence, as will be seen by the number of first premiums carried off by him. It would seem that from this and former exhibitions that the Baraboo country had some of the touches yet of the Garden of Eden. An unusually fine display of fruits from Beaver Dam, by Gould's Nursery Company, took a large share of premiums, while G. P. Peffer could have covered one-half the entire tables of the professionals with apples, pears, plumns, grapes, etc. E. Wilcox, from the north, showed us clearly that something besides crabs can be raised in that region. He took the "blue" ten varieties of apples adapted to the northwest. Among professionals, Geo. Wolff, Wm. Finlayson, and Wm. Kitzrow each drew first prizes, and though not large, had some fine collections of fruits. The exhibition of pears was mostly confined to the lake-shore region. A few $5 specimens of Flemish Beauty were exhibited by A. G. Tuttle, and entitled to the first prize. Messrs. Stickney, Baumbach, and Gilbert made a fine collection of apples, but competed for but few premiums, which they took, as a matter of course.

The display of grapes, by C. H. Greenman, drew their full share of attention, and but for the hard frosts would have taken more first premiums. For show of superintendent's exhibition, see award of premiums.

The non-professionals were out in full costume, and could have filled the entire hall. The competition was so great that it was difficult to decide who was victor, especially so, as many collections were piled up for want of room. A careful reading of the award of premiums will show the general standing of the collections.

Wm. Reid's display of grapes was the finest he ever made of certain varieties, from which a box was packed and forwarded to the American Pomological Society, at Chicago.

The finest collection of pears among non-professionals, was from Dr. James Ozanne, Racine. Messrs. Parks and Thomas were unable to exhibit their fine collections of pears, although Mr. Parks brought a branch heavily laden with fine specimens, a portion of which, and some from Dr. Ozanne's, were immediately forwarded
