THE SPENCER SEEDLESS APPLE
An Expert Investigates It and Makes
There has been much adverse criti
cinin of tlie Spencer Seedless Apple,
notably in the Rural Jew Yorker and
Bunio of its satellites. The opinion of
a recognized horticulturist, who has
made a thorough examination of the
apple, being allowed free range in the
orchard where they are grown, should
be valuable to those who are thinking
of planting these trees, as well as to
those who by reason of the criticisms
have been deterred from purchasing.
A company was recently organized yi
Canada to handle the Spencer Seedless
Apple trees, but the adverse criticisms
alarmed the organizers, and they re
fused to proceed further with the nego
tiations until they could have the prop
osition thoroughly examined by an ex
perienced horticulturist of reputation of
their own selection. This was readily
assented, to, and as a result the Hon.
John Dryden, who for more than twen
ty years was minister of agriculture for
the province of Ontario, was selected to
examine and report on this apple.
The Hon John Dryden's name is a
household word in Canada and Great
Britain, and his reputation is such as
will carry great weight wherever he Is
known. His report is most flattering
and an unqualilied endorsement of the
apple. A copy of it is sent free upon
application to the Spencer Seedless
Apple Company, Everett, Washington.

the splendid air of a reigning mon
arch, and deals out a 2 cent piece of
Ice for 10 eeHts.
"On the contrary, softly rings an
apologetic bell, and outside stands a
meek-faced man Imploring patronage;
not only imploring patronage, but gen

Ice for 10 cents."'

A simple bread-cutter Is equally a
useful to the housewife as the ef!g
beater. When the bread Is unevenly
cut, growling at
the thinness of
this piece or the
thickness of that
is usually the re
sult. To assure

Is the acme 'of sim
plicity. As shown
kou cutting Iikkad. In the Illustration,
It consists of a bread board for holding
the bread, guldcways being placed at
one end for the knife. The guldewnys
are uprights of parallel pieces of wire.
A short distance In front of the board
Is a spring arm, one end of which con
nects with a small roljer. This spring
arm regulates the thickness of the slice
of bread to be cut. As the knife de
scends through the bread the roller
forces the spring arm down, the slice
thus falling onto the table. When the
knife Is withdrawn the spring arm
ascends and Is ready to measure oH
the next slice.

of the best of land, irrigable and non-irrigable, just east of Cal
