NOTBMBBB 11, 1000. The Weekly Florists^ Review* 97 BALTIMORE. The Market There has been a good business done in chrysanthemums this fall, but that the supply has exceeded all demands is indi- cated by the low average prices main- tained. Stores and market stalls have been full, and the street dealers have had quantities to sell through the entire sea- son. There seems to be a scarcity of extra fine stock, the general run being of medium grades. There will be one com- mon note of satisfaction when they are over. In quality and size some have ex- ceeded anything seen here before. As to the profits in their cultivation, many growers believe the smaller sizes are more satisfactory than the giants, which find few uses, except for large decora- tions. Roses are in excess of daily demands, but the quality is advancing, and several shippers are sending in stock they are entitled to be proud of. Carnations are more plentiful, and move fairly well. Violets are neither abundant nor fine. The weather has been variable, but generally bright some portions of each day. There have been no rains and few fogs. We have had several heavy frosts which nearly caught some of the growers who were taking chances on the weather report. There have been some large weddings, which called for some extra fine stock. The fashionable balls will soon begin. The funeral work makes up a large pro- portion of the daily business. Q. Springfield, Mass. — Lewis Daniel Robinson, Jr., was married November 3 to Miss Edna Smith Nash, of Ludlow, Mass.

Prepare For Thanksgiving —AND- REMEMBER A good TUNE COMES out of AN OLD FIDDLE Do you want to be Buited? Do you need advice? To whom will you go? Certainly to the wise, experieneed, well- known head, who got gray- headed in the many years of service in his profession, the florist business. Godfrey Aschman, the Philadelphia hustler, ia the man who makes a special study of the wants of his customers. He always hits the nail on the head, he knows the pocket book, the means and the exact wants of his customers and raises his plants for them accordingly. TESTIMONY FROAI MICHBLL. I personany visited Mr. Aschmann's greenhouses September 21,19C9, and found that the Aran- cariaa. Begonia Gloire de Lorraine, Boston, Wbitmani, Scottli^Amerpohlli, Todeaoldea ferns, Kabber Plants, Kenttas and Arecas are indeed A No. 1. Have never seen any better plants.
