It will be in the recollection of the public that my collection of apples shown in Mr .Claytpn's shop in East street, being sixty-six Varieties., ajj.d .also those which took two first awards" 'at!''the Ihuiedin Exhibition and rations ptjjer pi'ac&s, 'was* j}ronpuncod to bp the largest and best ever shown ift th'<* Ashburton county. I would draw their attention ni advertisement elsewhere. As only work on blight-proof stocks than which no other stocks can be relied upon, the roota o r f >y apple trees do not require to lie washed before sending out. •• James Porter, nursery* man, AJlferit'oij.-— Adyt
