NATIONAL POTATO SOCIETY.—The ques- t.on whether a National Pota.to Society should be established or not came under the consideration of a leprosc-ntati vo gathering of potato-growers at the Hotel Windsor, Victoria-strcet, on Wednes- day afternoon. Piofessor A. D. Hall, of Rotham- fited, who was voted to the chair, said the need for r,uch a. societv was vc:y ev i dent. He knew of no such a society was very evident. H knew of no body of men more likely to be concerned in the question of foreign competition than potato- growers, who ought. to be ab.e to make their views known when thi question of tariffs came up for settlement.—Mr. Walter P. Wright, horticultural superintoncknt to the Kent County Council, lead a number of letters from traders and cultivators approving of the movement, and proposed a reso- lution dociaring that in the opinion of the me. tin,; a National Pota.to Society should be formed, with the object of spreading knowledge with reference to the growth of the potato and of promoting the interests of the industry in every possible way. The importance of the question was proved by the fact that the importation of potatoes into this country during the last nine months had amounted in value to nearly £ 2,000,000.—Mr. Alexander Dean seconded the resolution, which was ca.rrie,d.- A committee was then appointed to carry it into effect., and Mr. Walter P. Wright was elected secretary. BOOTS TO ORDER-not "halid-sewn prin- ciple," but real Hand-sewn, made on the premises by expert workmen in the old-fashioned way with oak bark tanned Leather these are a comfort, walking becomes a pleasure, and the price is reason- able.
