(Continued fforn last week,) I wish to say before I close this article that froQi to 500 per cent, is charged on some trees, roses, 8hrubs, s^ade trees, etc,  I aui able to^prqve this assertion by putting ^rtles who wish t^ plant out orchids or beautify Cheir homes w^ to get such things at reasoiMi>ble prices. And my advibe to them is to get their stock from strictly reliable southern nurseries, and to get only such varieties as hav« been thoroughly tested and found to succeed well in our own soil an4 climate. To buy fruit trees, etc., because they have a reputation in some other locality is t^ rxulthe lrisk of ânding yourselves disappointed aftèr the loss of four or : five years time.

You have taken a position upon »an evil that must be met by some one Competent to expose it.. The principle involved in "pooling the varioiis branches of business" in a small or large sense is i^^i^cally wrong. It is taking undue advantage of those who are outside—who are to be the greatest spfferers. Combinations ofeveig^ kind, unless designed to work a cpn^mon good, are evil, and an evil is the opposite of riirht, therefore^ while such schemes may work a temporary benefit to the few. the burthern or hani-  AaantoiC^títaüon.

As I sit among them in this ^large lounging room I cannot help wondering w^t is their business and what they are thinking, and how many are happy amd how many have some secret sorrow, and I wish I was a mind reader and could follow them in their thoughts of home and family—wife, children or mother away off some where^ How much we are alike if we only knew it.
