The excellent program and- di
rectory ot the atate Horticultural
society just being sent out by the
secretary, E. R. Lake, marks an
epoch in tbe history of this most .
useful and efficient organization. "
It now rarks as the largest or
ganization; of its kind on the Pacific
coast pnd one of the largest, if cot
the. largest . in the , United States,
the! membership' numberipe some
thing over six hundred. . ; -, , . , : . . :
This present large membership is
due to-a very active campaign just
nuisnetjrj4y the society s, committee
on affiliated loc-.l societies. At the
last anhbal meeting the constitution
of the sodety was so atnencVd ss fo
include lorl' organization t brough
iffiiiation, and as a resul t of the
work ' done by this ; committer-ia'
dozen or more .1 county: arid: tiist.Ict
organizations have been, effected.
To the work of thit committee h?s
been, addcl a very strong factor in
the enps offered by the .commksion
men of Portland who last year, gave
seven cups. J. H. Reid gave one.
This year the commission men. eive
eight," ;the. nurseymen three, society
othcers, one. , II. S. uile & Com
pany, Salem, one, 'the society, four,
besides, several minor awards.
There is no doubt that it is this
feature' thkt will draw the large' at
tendance that is assured at the an
nual meet,' iri the K. P. Hall, Port
land, Tuesday, January 8 and last
ing three days. ( ' - .' '' -:,'
Last' year's exhibit of fruit was a
plate contest;' this year it will be a
commercial package contest, with a
few plates; ibis condition ieing re
quested by thbse who have donated
the cups. '- This fact will make the
'exhibit1 'doubly : valuable to' tbe
grower, jsacker arid shipper of fruit
from ah educational point Ot t'lew
as the exhibitors ! on thisi'oc-'WlcU
will be'from " British ''Columbia,
Idaho, Washington. 'Eastern, and
Soufh'erfa and Western Oregon pnd

'-'''Southern Oregon" has a greater
interest iri this corripetition' ' than in
any' forhier event of the kind in the
WiHantte Valley, growers will
try' 'to t-uow'- 'those Hood River
chaps' a tiling or two in apples,' and
Iri walnuts for which there are four

irigtpri' and the ' Valley will show
something ' surprising to even the
