A M A S S A C H U S E T T S IDEA.
Agricultural Exhibit at Annual Meeting
of the State Grange.
The Massachusetts stute grange au
thorities are certainly to be commended
for their plan to have an agricultural
and horticultural exhibition In connec
tion with the next state grange meet
ing in this city in December. It is not
to be an exhibit for revenue, as no
premiums will be awnrded, but it Is
to he strictly educational, and each de
partment will be under expert manage
ment. Each grange Is to have charge
o f that class of products or articles
with the production o f which Its mem-
twrs are most familiar. This will in
sure the best possible showing In the
respective articles or products nnd will
familiarize the public with that which
Is the best that the state can produce.
This exhibit is likely to equal the ex

close o f the state grange meeting, to
