Double WatcJi-Spring Steels in
1 Pl 1129
Are but one indication of the great wearing
quality which medium and stout women posi
tively must have in their corsets. Without
strength, support and the RENGO BELT re
ducing feature these garments would have
no claim for the special consideration of
stout women they would fail to hold their
shape they would break down and prove
most unsatisfactory. The fact that for seven
years they have grown in popularity and
made a crowning success is Droof that stout
'and medium women find lasting and satisfy
ing support and positive reduction in the ex
clusive features of Rengo Belt corsets.
There are models with and without Steelastic
webbing. When extra flexibility and added
support is desired, our exclusive "Steelastic"
will be found to possess superior strength
and wearing quality. The double watch
spring steels are guaranteed not to break or
rust. See the latest new styles at

$500,000 MELON DIVIDED
Arthur M. CJeary Says Northwest
Prune Industry Should Take .
Similar Steps to Protect It
ecIC Against iiow Prices.
IOS ANGELES, Nov. 13. The 500.
OUO melon which the California Asso
ciated ItaiKingrowers have just divid
ed among their 6000 members indicates
the success ot the co-operative move
ment . among the raisin producers of
California, -which is now but four years
old. There are lessons which the prune
rrowers of the Pacific Northwest, as
welt as all other fruitgrowers there,
can gain from the magnificent success
that hns accompanied the united ef
forts of the raisin grapegrowers.
Before the California Associated Rai-
eingrowers was organized the raisin
Industry faced bankruptcy. The policy
of the packers at that time was to
ray the growers a low price and then
to stifle consumption by selling high,
(roirrra Own Stock.
The California Associated Raisin
jrowcrs is a $1. 000, 000 corporation, in
which the stock is owned mainly by
the growers. The great feat in the
organization of the corporation was
the raising of 1. 000.000, which freed
the growers from the grasp of the
Raisins, liko the box apples of the
I'acitie Northwest, cannot be fed to the
consuming public as rapidly as they
arrive from tho farms. With the
1. 000.000 capital the association of
raisingrowers is able to finance the
S rowers from year to year.
As soon as the raisins are delivered
from the vineyards the corporation
pay the growers 50 per cent of the
price at which they are bought and
Krves an interest-bearing note, whirli
can be discounted at the banks for the
unpaid portion of the purchase Drice.
These notes may be for 60 days or for
mx months as the needs of the asso
Price Advanced One Cent.
The price paid for the raisins in the
cweatbox, just as they come from, the
field, is a cent a pound more than was
paid by the packers just before the
association was formed.
The California Associated Raisin
growers grades, packs, advertises and
sells the raisins. The profit, which
comes, from grading and packing, goes
to the corporation and returns to the
growers in the form of dividends upon
A great accomplishment of the as
sociation has been to widen distribu
tion and increase consumption. Up to
this time the jobbers have been used
to distribute the crop: but the tendency
at the present time is to work towards
reaching the retailer and even the con
turner direct. The association adver
tises extensively in National maga
y.ines. Kighty per cent of the grow
ers are in the asociation. and the stock
books are closed.
Prune InduBtrr la other Cilrrmr.
The dried purne industry of Oregon
and Washington is an example of one
uusmeos in wnich the growers suffer
from lack of organization and from
the attendant low prices and lack of
ior ineir product. The high
class evaporated prune of the North
west has been forced into the same
class with the withered, sun-dried
brother from California. No boarding
house keeper dares place a dish of
prunes upon the table twice in the
tamo week without an apology
The fine grade Oregon Italian prune
could be rescued from this undeserved
odium. Statistics as to the comparative
food value of the dried prune and in
formation as to the care used in the
process of drying it and as to meth
ods of cookins It would soon give the
Oregon and Washington dried prune
its proper place. There would be a
general improvement in prices from
the increased demand created, especial
ly if a strong organization was formed
to deal with the brokers and packers.

BIG MILL CRANE IS SET
Booth-Kelly Plant Now Can Lift
Structure Timbers of Great Weight.
SPRINGFIELD. Or., Nov. 13. (Spe
cial.) Work has started on the last
large structure for the Booth-Kelly
sawmill which has been in process of
erection here for two years. The mill
began operation more than a year ago,
but new units have been erected from
time to time since The last is a tim
ber crane for the handling of big
titmbers, loading them on cars, or
carrying them to storage piles. By
this crane, structural timbers weigh
ing 1000 to 2500 pounds can be lifted
from the live rolls on which they are
brought from the saws, and deposited
easily on the waiting car.
By the construction of this crane
the last of the heavy work is elimi
nated from the mill. Live rolls,
transfer chains and the cranes will do
all the moving of timbers or slabs.

that the former route has a smaller

route to Eugene.
