Spitz S3 In Chicago
Chicago, Feb. 17. There was a bet
ter demand for both barreled and
boxed apples this week, and ship

all tributary markets. Cooler stock
Is drawn on so heavily that holders
had to refuse orders from JoIiIhth In
order to supply their regular trade.
Should the same movement continue
through the mouth withdrawals will

SAYS BOX APPLES
INCREASED PER CT.
One of the most Interesting paers
read at the recent convention of
Western Fruit Jobliers at Sacra
mento, was prepared by M. (J (Jib
sou on "Apple Production." Mr.
"We are confronted with an au.
nuaul Increase of 50 per cent In the
production of western box apples,
and there Is every reason to believe
this ratio of Increase will be main
tained for several years at least, Ik
cause of so many new orchards com
ing Into bearing. On the other haud.
we have au Increase of about 12V WT
cent In the consumption demand of a
given commodity every year over
the preceding. If the statistics ou
foodstuffs are to be relied upon
Putting the two ratios together, we
find It stands one to four, with the
balance on the wrong side, so far as
selling apples at high prices Is con
cerned. But the balance favors con
cessions to develop lower prices and
attract more consumption.. There
fore, the old law of supply and de
mand may serve better than legisla
tion we can get at Washington or
elsewhere, to accomplish what we
are trying to do.
"And for fear some of my friends
may misconstrue my position, I
want to say that 1 am In favor of
selling apples for good prices high
prices, If 1 can get them. They are
worth all they will bring. This is
elementary. But It is also element
ary that If the supply of anything Is
doubled and doubled again, we shall
have some change, at least. In pre
vailing selling prices.
"Tulk Is cheap; that's why we
have so much of It. But many of
those who have tried to talk us out
of court when we have been laboring
for their and our mutual benefit, are
likely to cease accusing us of being
meddlers, anil, I think, will gladly
join forces with us In trying to do
what we have attempted already,
viz., to provide as wide an outlet as
possible Id this country and abroad
for apples, aud by means of standard
packages we know the problem will
be greatly simplified.
"By reason of tli lact that my
firm has already sold over 1200 cars
of western box apples tuls season, I
prcfess to be entitled to some definite
opinions on this subject, and It Is my
honest conviction that we need a
standard box and basket of '2.'M2
cubic Inches and o standard barrel
which will hold three boxes or bas
kets. I want to say once for all that
all the apples now grown, or yet to
le grown, can le packed In such
BOXED APPLES ADVANCE
IN NEW YORK MARKET
The trade In boxed fruit, says the
Produce Xews, of Feb. is, has Im
proved somewhat and the move
ment Is letter on good stock. More
high-class fruit Is lielng offered and It
is about L'.lc higher priced. Winesaps
sell the highest. $2 60; the best Arkan
sas Blacks. $2.50; Home Beauty, 2 40.
Spitz are exceedingly dull and $2.25 Is
about top for the best Hood Klver
fruit. The cheaper classed of boxed
apples Is dwindling In quantity and
Is not so much In evidence. Tiiere
has Iieen no advance on this, which
Is worth $1,40 6 1 (5. In general re
ceipts at the pier are moderate.
averaging five and six cars dally.
Offerings from local storehouses are
not particularly heavy. In fact the
supply as well as the demand for
boxed fruit Is only of moderate pro
portion, and values of this fruit have
not responded to the advance on bar
rels. The Liverpool market to-day ad
vanced a trifle over Wednesday on
California fruit. Newton, sold, four
tier, 1.H tier. $1 (i 1.01.
Washington Xewtowns sold at$l Xi

active. On Wednesday Oregon New
towns sold $2 5062.75.
Fruit Exchange Report on Apples
The liest Informed authorities agree
that February w III be another month
of very henvy withdrawals from
cold storage In large eastern centers.
It Is generally conceded that the soft
weak fruit has tw-en cleaned up to a
gnat extent, nnd as the demand
continues satisfactory the market
Is showing a great deul of strength
The call for SpltzzenbiirgM, however,
still shows rather unsatisfactory vol
ume, and best Spttzenhurgs are re
ported as selling In the Xew York
market mostly around $2 25, with
some sales down to $1.50 and a few
sales of the very fanciest marks up
to f 2.75 for favorite sizes.

LATEST IN BUGOLOGY
Every fruit grower who missed at
tending the meeting of the Washing'
ton state Horticultural Society at
Prosser lost a great deal more than
he can possibly realize, says the Wen
a tehee Kepubllc. For example, the
story told by (ico, M. Chase, of how
he discovered a germicide for a new
parasite that was ruining $10,000
worth of orchard, was worth golug
miles to hear. Mr. Chase Is In charge
of the Northern Puclfie model or
chard, aud a model orchard It was,
to Ite sure, uutfl a little beetle the
size of a common housefly. In length
one-third of au Inch a tiny thing to
cause so much trouble began to ap
pear In his orchard. He named this
creature the snout beetle, first, he
says, because It had u snout, and
second, because he poked that snout
Into Mr. Chase's business.
The beetle operated In murky and
cloudy weather, and at other times
secreted Itself In the ground, In the
hole caused by the tree rocking In the
wind. It never came out when t lie
weather was either hot or cold, but
selected dark days, and developed an
abnormal appetite for all the budsln
Mr. Chase realized that the orchard
was In danger. Unless something
was done to check the Inroads of the
bugs he knew that $40,000 worth of
orchard wns doomed. He communi
cated with the experiment station at
Pullman, and received the reply that
If he would approach the tree holding
underneath It an open umbrella the
bugs would fall Into It. This was
tried, but without success. They
would drop to the. ground all right
on approaching the tree, but general
ly lit before the umbrella could be
placed underneath them. Then one
day happening to be reading a copy
of a fruit magazine, he observed a
note to the effect that kerosene einul
slon had been found a bad thing for
the health of woolly aphis wheu pour
ed on the ground, and he figured that
a $40,noo loss was worth a little ex
periment to prevent, so he poured
out a little stream of the emulsion
about the size of a match on the
ground near the trunk of one of the
trees, and found at once that the
stuff was going to do the work com
pletely. The result was that a little experi
menting, occasioned by an Item In a
magazine, saved the Xorthern Pacific
Of course the Pullman professors
who were listening to the fun caused
by what M r. Chase saldl and he didn't
lose an opportunity to "rub In" the
umbrella Item, and others too) rose
to their feet, several of them, after
this muckraking of their methods,
and defended themselves nobly. The
fact was brought to light that this
lieetle was one of a large family of
leetles, some 15,000 strong, all of
whom had not yet been named, nnd
that the established way to bring
members of this family to book was
by the use of the umbrella method.
It was explained that this had been
previously found a very successful
way, and that the reason Mr. Chase
had failed to do any damage with
his umbrella was possibly liecause
he loafed around too long after ap
proachlng the tree.
