Hefty Salem Fruit Man Has
Experience That Makes
Him Cautious !
1 It any one hpnld say to Fred
Kurtz, "Hare a'- chair and real
yourself," and he nhouJd reply
"Thanks, I'll fen letter tanding
i up," It would not necessarily mean
that he has been lounge-lizarding
long .enough to become tired of
sitting down. H e's as busy as
ever- but be has a story to tell
about this chair business.
, ' HI nephew. Frit Godfrey, Is
one of the busiest little amateur
ejectrlcians anywhere. Ho has
built a wireless outfit, and a doz
en or a hundred of other electrical
contrivances which he has
housed In the little den which he
built for the ! purpose. When f.'n
;fe Fred visited hfm In this lair
me" night recently, the boy had
inst secured a" big etorape battery
which he had Installed and was
preparing to demonatarto.
'Take this chair Uncle Fred,
and I'll show you something,"
said the lad. Uncle Fred took the
chair and then something with a
kick between that of moonshine
'and a two-ton Missouri mule hit
him and shot him across the room
like a man filliping an apple seed
or a match into the gutter.
"Why,, what's the matter "
ejaculated the surprised lad.
Uncle Fred really didn't know,
but the boy did. Hi3 only sur
prise was, whether It, would work
bo fast on so large a body! The
storage battery was hitched to
some kind of .an electric Jabber
and pllo-drlvcr, and not even the
Kttrtas solidity was proof against
So that's why Uncle Fred takes
his meals standing, and why the
boy grins a grin I hat yet has a
trace of "wonder-what-he's-going-to-do-a
bout-It" reserve.

buyer can use them, and make the
market steady where it has in the
past year been as freakish and
fickle as a pampered baby with
the colic. Many of the high-priced
fruits of last year's pack simply
wouldn't sell because of the price;
they have had to be worried out
into the trade this' season, ped
dled and cajoled and browbeaten
into the shelves or the retailers at
ruinously low prices after every
body had lost heavily on them.
But selling on this year's Iov.-er
fruit-price schedule, and with the
freight concession which brinpc
northwestern fruits down to
where the common person can buy
them readily, tfainloads and mi let:
and hundreds of miles of fruit
cars will be going eastward after
the new rates go into effect on
August 23. Approaching one-hal!
mile of freight cars loaded with
fruit and vegetable products will
go from Salem alone, during the
week; much more than a half mile
if the four cars of King.'s dehy-
drated materials were reduced to
canned or fresh-fruit weight and
bulk. The King company will ship
four cars, which have been dehy
drated to about one-twelfth their
original weight; they'd make al
most half a mile of fresh or can
ned fruit cars from this one ship
ment.! The Producers' company
will ship eight cars or more, and
all the factories and associations
will contribute.
Salem food stuffs are selling

are within a half cent of the open

years past.
Advertising and standardization
of tira Oregon product under the
Mistland brand are responsible in
a laree measure for the increased
price that it is bringing.
The prospect is ninch brighter
this year because every indica
tion points to a rising market in
contrast to the sharp decline
which was experienced with the
1920 crop. The opening prices
are below those of las! year, but
with a strengthening market it is
probable that the returns to the
grower will be better than those
of the-last season.
