hairlike stalks, firmly adhered to the
surface of the apple. They were gray in
color, about an inch in length and near
the end was what seemed to be a small
ump or growth. The apple was sent to
the Oregon Agricultural college with
request that a report be made on it.

Vinegar from Prunes.
The following extract ii taken from
an article that appeared recently in the
San Francisco Call : It is to be boned
that prunei may be louod suitable for
vinegar. Prunes being very sweat will
produce a large quantity either of alco
hol or of vinegar. The vinegar produc
ed from prune juice in Oregon is said to
be io itrong aa to require ita dilution
by one-bait to bring it down to the com
mercial standard. There is little doubt
that the French peoplo knuw all about
the value of prunes for vinegar, and as
one of the Oregon professors has
been studying the prune industry In
France, he has very likely returned
with ideas which are being developed
in practice. But the question of profit
cannot be answered until we lee how
people like prune vinegar. While there
il a great deal of wine vinegar used, and
probably very much more ot cheap
adulterations falsely called vinegar,
nothing baa yet been able to displace
the good old-fashioned cider yinegar ai
the itandard for the best. But the
manufacture of vinegar constitutes a
very large industry. Few people, in
fact, have any idea of its magnitude,
In the slate of Ner York it is the
eubjrct of much legislation for establish
ing a standard and protecting it from
the competition of adulterations. If the
prune vinegar proves satisfactory to
consumers, its manufacture will prove
of great value to our prune growers as
an outlut for the inferior stocks which
