Orchardists at Milton Fattening the
Former on the Latter,
Milton. Sept. 25. Tho orchardists
around Milton arc feeding their prune
crop to hogs. The fruit make good
hog feed and Is prnrllrnlly worthless
to the farmer because of the extreme
ly cheap price. Thirty-five cents per
100 pounds Is the quotation at the dri
ers and this, men who grow them
say. does not pay for picking nnd
transporting the prunes. As a result
tho hogs arc being fattened on the
fruit. People who live close to the
drying establishments are keeping the
latter supplied, but the amount dried
will be far lest than ordinarily.
The prune crop was exceedingly
heavy this season and tho quality ex
cellent. Every orchard with prune
trees bore until the boughs were
weighted almost to the ground. When
the shipping season opened produce
houses were burled under a mass of
prunes and speedily the price sank
down until only 35 cents per 100
pounds wns offered. Then the prune
growers began to realize that an abun
dance of prunes was not so groat a
blessing, as little if anything could be
realized nt the low price.
Those residing In the immediate vi
cinity of the drlei'h can make a small
margin of profit, but when any con
siderable distance has to bo traveled I
it Is cheaper to leave them on the
trees. So, for the first time In years
In this country hogs are being fat
tened ou fruit.

The only uppioach to u separator
explosion this season lu tho Walla

In Columbia county, when a harvester
carried a lighted lantern beneath a
