BETTER FRUIT CALLS

Portlund people may have noticed

at the city stores gave the Ureitonian.
Wormy applet, scaly peacbei and dis
caned fruit of auy kind can no longer
lie found for ttule. For tills welcome
change they are indebted to a young
limn who twice a day maket the round
of tlio Front street produce houses, in
the oarly morning visits the l'laa
market and the rest of the day kepe
his eye on farmers and gardouere who
bring their product to the city. This

then swooned. A call was made for
the physioian who pronounced Lopez

grapes every year. lie grows other
fruit, too, but be sprays bis yards so
thoroughly that he never has to con
demn any of bis own product. .Since
he stopped the sale of Infected fruit
iu tli s market, prices have undergoue
quite a revolution. Heretofore So
much trash was offered for sale that it
kept down the price of clean fruit,
especially apple, and no inducement
was offered the grower (otake care
of his orchard properly. Before Mr.
Hold's appointment good sound ap
ples only netted the grower about 7fi
cents a box. Now the same class ol
fruit is worth about 11. M).
To the farmers I would like to
give a littlo advice," said Mr. Iteid
yesterday. "Leave your wormy and
scaly apples at home, unless you are
looking lor trouble. 1'ack your fruit
lionestly and throw out the scabby,
misshapen stuff for hogfeed It will
pay in the end.
A lew days ago there was a scarc
ity of apples on Front street, and In
making my rounds I saw four boxee
of passable apples iu front of a mail
order house. The fruit had been
dumped loosely in the box, the covers
were sawed out of fence boards and
nailed up with ten penny nails. 1
bought the four boxes at 50 cents each,
took them to a commission bouse, re
placed them iu clean boxes and the
result was three boxes of fairly good
apples which were sold 20 minutes
later at l.i" a box.
"This was merely an expflilment to
see wnat could lie done with ordiuary
clean fruit. The result fully justified

Lopez gradually sank and was at
