br,,otv!i Hnus its head, the fish

at Port Conclusion.
The. YoHiiplnwn, Ohio, Viiuiiealor
of ,luly -r, eontalns the following re
gnrdiug ,1. lvvc1, fonnerly of the
Valley garage, ilertfonl, who pre
sented the Chlidrch'd t'rosh Air fund
with n:i water melens:
Sixteen fine plump watermelons
found Ihuir way out lo the Fresh Air
enmp las! week, bringing joy lo tho
kiddies nnd a great deal of sntbfae
tion (o the donor. And they eame out
in xtyle, too, being conveyed to the
rantp in a brand new JIupmobilo
ruunhoul in charge of the new Hup
agent in this city, J. V. Keycs.
This is I he way it happened:
The new car had just rolled into
tin gnnigo nnd interested bystanders
were commenting upon the beauty of
ils lines. ''V on -eo that 'carry-all'
in the rear?" said Mr. Kcyes. "Well,
a man could start on ti camping Mp,
store his entire outfit in that and nev
er know ho had it nlong. Why you
could go to a picnic and lug along
enough good things for an nnny, al
most." Then ho paused for another
flighl of Imagination. "Gentlemen,
he hiscred scrinnly, "1 can put W
watermelon m that enr and yon
couldn't see where Ihcy went to."
Now, Mr. Kecs is n stranger in our
fair city and the crowd nntnmlly let
him hnve his own way in his earlier
assertions. Hut 311 melons aroused
the curiosity of those pneut and the
bugestion wns made that Keyes
ranko good. "Tell von what I'll do,"
said Knycs turning to It. K. Itobintoii
of the Vindicator; "if that car won't
hold !)3 melons, I'll pav for them nnd
donate them o thnl Frwh Air camp
your paper is boosting."
Keyes lost his wager by the nar
row margin of one melon. Thirty-
two was the capacity of the car.
3Ir. ICeycs personally conducted hit
melons out to tfie camp. Sixteen
were laken Wednesday nnd the others
will bo delivered as soon as the first
lot n ro fiip'Mtcd. As ho watched tho
happy children unloading tho luscious
melons from the o.ir with whoops of
delight, he turned to the rejwrlcr,
who had accompanied him.
"Gee," he remarked, "that's the

W. W. Pratt of the agriculture, de
partment ot Washington, U. C, lec
tured on tho value of cold storago
and careful handling of fruit nt the
Library Saturday afternoon to over a
hundred ot Itoguo Iltvcr valley's
most prominent orcltqrdlsts. Ily tho
means of charts and illustrations ho
made his lecture very Interesting and
tho value of tho talk Is immeasurable.
Ho told about his experiments with
cold tttoragc and showed that Hart
lulls picked a week or two later than
is customary stood up best In ship
ment. Ho emphasizes tho fact, how
ever, that it Vns easy to let the pears
hang too long which was worao than
picking thorn too early.
The loss occasioned from careless
handling, packing, storage, etc., was
enormous, ho declared, (sometimes
running to CO por cent of tho box.
With careful handling ho told how
the loss In this way was practically
iiotliliu; one-tenth of quo per cent.
Ho did iio( go Irto details concerning
tho handling of apples and pears but
said that tho sanitary couUltleu of tho
orchard was qf jjrpat Importance
Tho fruit should bo handled 'llke
eggs" and should not bo dropped into
boxes. Careful pickers, packers,
nailers, and carloaders aro of greatest
necessity to successful fruit ship
I'cars and applos uhould not bo al
lowed to remain In u hot packing
liouuu uny longer than Is absolutely
necessary, and ho showed how tho
new cold storago plant would permit
tho growers to avoid this.

SHORTAGE IN PIES
L KELY TO FOLLOW
SHY APPLE CROP
roitTLANll, Ore., Aug. . Apple
pies proutira lo bo u n'lil elve ivi
ticlo thi sensou ns n result of n
shoiter erop in tho United Plates'
Hum. Inst year. Approximately the
rnipuf tlio country h eslinmled nt
prvwiit nnnttid l8.l5$l5-0 hnshels
or lU,J72,ti7S,000 apples of average.
"My, I don't see where we arc go
iiig l K'-'t r usual supply of apple
pics this season," says A. 1. Jlale
nmn. iec president of llio North
western Fruit F.M'lmngc, "1 simply
dole on good, juidy apple pies, nnd I
fear that there will not ho enough
this season of the f.'uit grown to give
us nil tho pies wo need."
"It tnkes perhaps five nvernge
sized apples to make a good apple
pie, therefore it is apparent Hint
only !!,0Ti 1,533,1)00 apple pies can bo
made front the cnp this season.
However, we will export nbont 0,000,
000 bushels this year or enough to
make t!?0,000,000 pies, leaving only
l,iHJ.r;i,,b00 pies for homo con
sumption. This a mosl serious con
ilition when one comes to consider
that the average American prefers
npplc pio lo any oilier.
"Considering; the population of (lie
oouutry nnd it is somewhat in
creased since the last official census,
there will not bo more than "0 pics
for each person during the cn(ire
year. This is not enough. I could
cut several times my proportion anil
will probably do so unless someone
forestalls me by eating their share
Latoj.1 reports received, from var
ious apple-growing sections of tho
country indicate that the shortage in
the erop will h somewhnt greater
than first anticipated. In the Paci
fic northwest tho crop promises to
he of good ipinlily nnd size.
TO DAMAGE VALLY
That a severe hail storm had done
considerable damage to crops nnd
fruit in the Itoguo river valley is the
rumor which has gained considerable
headway in Portland and as far
south ns Itoscbiirg. A Medforditc
returning Inst night was piito sur
prised when informed to the contrary
and it evidently appears thnU tome
of our jealous neighbors on the north
of us had becomn busy again and arc
up to some jnischief. Several com
mission men in Portland hnd heard
the rumor nnd were rather skeptical
to place any orders for our fruit,
however (hey havu been informed to
the contrary upd every effort will be
iimdc to correct this crruuous impres
sion. The weather bureau hero telegraphs
u daily report to Portland and if iny
hail had occurred here it would have
been noted in their report and H
would seem that Jieople who make a
business of buying fruit would oh
luiu this report from the weather
bureau before believing rumors fetich
as this one. Professor O'Gara states
that thu fruit crop is in a most excel
lent condition and that between (100
anil 700 carloads of pears will he
shipped this year mid a like number
of njiplcs. ' ' '
