Emily is a modern horns builder who

food is being transported in quantity
and with regularity. The fuel prob­

Tendency to Rush Product to Market
Before It Is Well Blanched— Loss
In Trimming.
The bracing fall weather will stimu­
late the demand for celery. At this
season when It Is selling readily at
good prices, there Is a tendency to
rush celery to market before It Is well
blanched. This Is a mistake, because
It necessitates severe trimming at the
market end, nnd the product goea to
the cheaper trade. To catch the best
grade, celery must be fully blanched,
clean and well trimmed.
"Handling” celery should be finished
promptly and the rows ridged as fast
us possible. I f the soil la allowed to

quarters there is a prejudice against
blanching celery with boards. It Is
