Three carloads of roses was the
contribution to the carnival this
morning. St. Johns is ahead of
any other, section in the supply of
tuenoveiyjaiiowers, atiu we couiu
easily send twice ns many tomorrow
as we did this morning. The soil
lerc is ideal for the growth of fine
roses and with a little care iu selec-
on and cultivation will enable one
to go to his garden almost any day
in the year and guther such a bou
quet of roses as would cost from
$25 to $100 lu any of tlie great
cities of the East.
A number of dog owners have
