WASHINGTON, Aug. 0. (U. P.)T
"Do not sell your oods until you get
your price," was the warning members
of the house and senate' sent to farm
ers all over the country air a result of
the senate approval of the administra
tion's farm credits bill, counted to
boost prices of all farm products.
"Hold cotton for 20 cents,'' was the
word sent, to the cotton states. West
ern senators told their constituents to
ask higher prices and hold their sur
pluses until the buyers meet the price
asked. The senators predicted this
move would cause a much higher gen
eral ton j to the agricultural market.

That tho good varieties of apples
will command a high figure this sea
ton la the belief of fruit men. The
Lamb Fruit Co. has already received
on offer of -S 2.75 a, box for five car
loads of Delicious apples, but they re
fused, bellevlna that when thp real
market Is established some time early
ln October, this famous variety of ap
ples will bring a better price. Early
apples brought from $1.75 to $2 a box,
depending on the variety.
Another itcrmthat is ln favor of the
fruit maj this year Is the lower costs
that' he hag to .pay. His packing
charges are lower, than they have been
for some tim, and labor sts are j
down some, all, of which help him to
get back on hln feet.
The prune crop will be Teady for
harvesting beginning the4atter part ot

' ' Quality of Prunes Oood
. Jlilton-Preewater has an advantage
over many producing sections, too,
that means a lot to the industry. Lo
cal prunes "will . ship without beina
dried, and that very fact is a boon th tt
enables fruit that is produced here to
be shipped to Liverpool and Paris and
CoDenhagen lust as it comes from the
tree. The fact that It Is ripe earlier
than In many other districts is another
advantage that assures a good market
when the dried fruit goes begging for
buyers later In the year.
There ar four big fruit concerns
here, and they are all centers of great
activity now, the Lamb Fruit Co.; the
Milton Fruit C.rowers' Cooperative
Union; the Shields Fruit Co.; and H. S.
Dcnnisoft and Co; The Growers' Stor
age and Supply Co., a locally controll
ed concern, has .under construction
now a big storage 'warehouse which
will be completed and ready for ope
ration by September 15. The struc
ture Is of tile construction nhd will be
equipped with1 modern conveyors anc
fixtures which will make It one of the
most up-to'date plants of Its kind in
the West. The cost of the hmldinii
will be $75,000, and'lt will be used for

That farmers in this district will hr

extent witu.the proceeds of this year'r

institution stating that 75 per cent of
the borrowers of' the. bank would li

voulh como very close to a compiet

viable position, (however, due to the
fact that it was not in business wher

post-war times was practiced. Its pa
