Roses Bardou Job and Gloire des Rosomanes. — Among many autumn Roses now flowering these two are conspicuous alike in profusion and brilliance. The cooler days of autumn are better suited to them, and their semi-double flowers last longer at this season.

I often wish there were a National Rose Garden, where every variety could be planted, so that rosarians could see for themselves the true value of each. How some of our much-praised Roses would have to give place to those less known but better, at least in the matter of "doing well" and in point of colour.
I append a list of a few varieties that are comparatively unknown, yet I can recommend every one with the full assurance that they would please the majority of the readers of The Garden. Among what are regarded as climbing Roses not one of the Rambler race can surpass.
