EXIF J. BARLEYCORN
FROM U. S. ARMY
War and boots are no longer in
partnership. With booze kicked out of
every military camp as a danger to ef
ficiency and the foe of order, booze is
hard hit. National prohibition of tlie
manufacture and sale of any kind of
poison is a manifest thing. When there
are riota or trouble the first thing the
military and civic authorities suppress
ia btxize. The war will be worth its
incalculable cost if the manufacture of
boots is done away with forever. It
will he worth its fearful co«t if the last
veetage of feudalism is done away with.
It will lie wortu its cost if we learn how
to tax privilege for public need and to
suppress private greed for public weal.

BI6 PRUNE LOSSES DUE
TO PREMATURE PIGKIN6
Prune growern stand to lose a goo«l
deal of money when they allow them
selves to be hurried into a too early
picking. This wasteful business has
been fostered by certain packers who
offer a premium for early delivery. It
is also caused by the fear of early rains.
The premiums offered for early delivery
are not enough many times to offset the
loes from early picking, and the weather
records show that it is just as likely to
rain early in September as late.
By harvesting the fruit from a few
trees |after they had she«! their fruit
naturally, a grower found by comparing
the returns with those from fruit vigor
ously shaken from the trees, that he
hail lost 6 per cent of his dried fruit by
shaking it down. The immature prune«
dried away more than the mature, mak
ing another 6 per cent loes in the total
crop. The total lore was 12 percent,
about $15 per ton.
An additional cost is the shaking of
the trees, which amount« to $1 to $2
per ton. By watcbiDg the fruit care
fully the right time for tiarve«ting it
can be determined.
