In carrying out the objects of the organization of an "Agricultural Experiment Station," we cordially invite the co-operation of all persons interested in its success. Suggestions as to lines of experimental work, problems to be solved, inquiries relating to agriculture, horticulture, stock, and the dairy, will be cheerfully received, and answered !l,S far as possible ; but no work will be undertaken unless of public value, and the results of which we are at liberty to use for the public good. Specimens of grains and grasses, seeds of fruit and forest trees ; vegetables, plants and flowers that are true to name; varieties of beneficial and injurious insects ; samples o.f mineral waters and ores, and whatever may illustrate any department of agriculture, will be gladly received, and due acknowledgments made in animal reports. Directions for collecting, packing and shipping such specimens will be furnished on application. Bulletins will be issued at least quarterly, giving the results of experimental work as fast as completed, together with, such suggestions and information as may be thought valuable to the farmers of Missouri. The bulletins and reports of this Station are sent free to every citizen of Missouri who applies for them. Copies are sent as soon as issued to every newspaper in the State, to every Grange, Farmers' Alliance, or other Agricultural organization, whose address can be obtained. Bulletins and reports are also sent to the leading Agricultural papers of the country, and will be sent to any paper that may desire to exchange. Letters relating to ·any special line of work should be directed to the officer in charge of that division, but all general correspondence relating to the work of the Station should be addressed to EDWARD D. PORTER, Director of Experiment Station. Columbia, Boone Co., Mo.--Introductory.
