It Is the rotten'apple In the bo,
the painted knothole In the board,
the musty streak In the butter, or ;
bacon which will decide the price
oil the second package of food you ,
try to sell to a private customer.
Most people will forget to praise
the good specimens if they think
you are trying. to deceive them
with a cull. Moot of us have heard
of the Ane packing of the Pacific
Coast fruit. Are there no cuUa in
thee packages? Interested In the
matter, we wrote the firm of Stein
hardt & Kelley, who for some
years hape handled apples from
the farmers of the Hood River
region. Their answer follows, and
It Is worth the attention of any -'

do we accept them without close inves

we shall be glad to have you drop In

and take a box of fruit from any heap,
and you will find that every box Is
practically. Identical,-and that every
apple is absolutely perfect, whether

West suffice It to say that this could
be done just as well in the East as
In the west If you caa get enough,
as we stated before, honest men who
will pack honestly. The whol$ thing
in a nutshell Is simply and purely a
business proposition. . You no doubt
know that the Eastern barrel pack, to
say the least, leaves a great deal
to be desired: You know that there
are usually " three or four good tiers
on top and, the rest is a lot of Infer
ior goods. This la the reason 'why
the public Is now turning; toward the
box apples to take the place of the
barrel and it Is the writer's personal
opinion that It will only be a few
yeart until the barrel apple will be
practically, out of use for the better
class of trade, owing to no other rea
son than dishonest methods employed
In packing. -, ,.' -''--:t 'X
"The entire matter is simply one
of honesty and quality. Fruit can be
had just as good in the East ; as In
the Weisf., and we see no reason why
the Eastern grower can't get Just as
much for his goods as the Western
grower, If he will only make up his
mind to one absolute fact, and that
Is he has got to be honest, and that
If he thinks he can fool the people
all the time by putUng up a fake
barrel of apples he Is making a big
mistake. ' .' .. ;. .

The same thing1 can be done In the
Grande Rondo' fruit district that is
done at Hood River. Why cannot
fruit growers here get together and
have an understanding.
