Darwin, Dutch and Breeders species were platted by Mr. Mellor for his garden. The color range is exceptionally pronounced this year and the beds ate eminently worth seeing. Beside* their fame as a delightful garden flower, tulips also hate figured in one of the world's most famous inflations and depressions. Years ago, Hollanders (the Netherlands are still the center of tulip cultivation) acquired a potent liking for tulip bulbs. Preposterous prices were soon paid for the bulbs and the rage spread to other parts of the world, Shortly bulbs wete purchased at unheard of figures, much as were stocks in New York in 1888-2&. As do all such bub* bles, the thing finally broke, ruined many speculators, caused a sympathetic depression in many parts of the world.
