OLD ABE.
Aint there a nice crop? there's the hardy Bunker Hill flower, the Seventh Regiment Pink, the Fireboy Tulip—That tricolored flower grows near Independence Hall—the Western Blossoms and Prairie Flowers will soon begin to shoot.

What charming plant is this?
OLD ABE.
That is rare in this country—it will bloom shortly and bear the Jeffersonia Davisiana.
