P£6IP($. Pears are more reliable in fruiting, sell at higher prices than apples, and are of more delicate and delicious flavor. Since the introduction of the newer varieties which resist the blight and come into fruiting at 2 or 3 years of age, there is no reason why every family should not have an abundance of this profitable and health-giving fruit during the entire season. JAPAN GOLDEN* RUSSET Since my Introduction of this valuable new |v»r the demand has steadily Increased and one western firm is offering what they claim to be Identical with Japan Golden Rnsset nnder another name. Send direct to head- quarters and get the genuine Japan Golden Russet. Its rampant growth, dark, glossy, sturdy, brown wood, and large, luxuriant foliage of wondrous vigor and beautv, together with its remarkable arid persistent habit of producing an abundance of beautiful Golden Russet Pears, have created a sensation and a demand for trees throughout the sections in which they have been slanted. It bears every year; it has no off vears; it is so late in blooming that it escapes the late frosts that are so destructive in some sections. It flourishes under the scorching rays of the sunny ^oiith, its abundance of tough’ leathery leaves enabling it to endure heat and drought, and ;>artieularly adapted to hot dry climates and parched sandy soils where common sorts cannot i’xist. It matures its wood so perfectly it will require intense cold to injure it. Its bearing pro- pensities are so great that the fruit hangs in great masses and clusters, flat or apple shape, from 8 to 12 Inches around and of the most beautiful golden color; crisp, juicy, sweet, pleasant and unsurpassed for canning arid preserving. Ripens in September and October. One year old trees, fiO cents each; 2 for S1.00, postpaid." Two year old trees, 81.00 each; 3 for J2.50, by express"at pur- chaser’s expense. VERMONT BEAUTV This most beautiful oi all Pears originated on Grand Isle, Lake Cham- plain. Is very hardy, having endured extremely cold weather, and has never lost a bud from either cold or blight; vigorous grower and retains its foliage late in the season. An annual and abundant bearer. In quality the fruit approaches nearer that most delicious of Pears, the Seckle, than any other Pear on the market.. The fruit is full medium size, yellow, covered on the sunny side with bright carmine red, making it exceed- ingly attractive and handsome. No colored picture could do It justice. Flesh melting, rich, juicy, aromatic, best; ripens with and after Seckle, though much larger in size and more attractive in appearance. One year old trees, 40 cents each; 3 for £1.00, postpaid. THE IDAHO PEAR. Prof. Budd says: "The Idaho is the hardiest of all Pears." P. J. Berkmans, Pres. Am. Pom. So.: "Its quality is remarkable for such a large fruit." Dr. P. M. Hexlmer, Chairman Com. Native Fruits: "It is very large, handsome and of delicious quality." The Idaho" is a very valuable new Pear of largest size, nearly round, yellow skin with brownish kred on sunny side; flesh, melting and juicv; quality, best, ripening in September. The fruit weighs from 16 to 23 ounces each and is frequently without seed’s. The tree is an excellent grower with an abundance of luxuriant foliage, very productive and an annual bearer. No fruit collection is complete without the Idaho and at the low prices "at which they are now offered, every fruit garden should be supplied with them.
