New York, Sept. IS. Battling to a
finish each day with two infielders,
recognized an the country's best, out
of the game through injuries nnd with
a pitching staff shot to pieces, the lies
ton Braves are supplying the National
league and the fans of the nation with
a spectacle seldom equalled.
George Stalllings' ball players, who
on sheer nerve fought their way from
last place to first in the memorable
rampaign of 1014 ami who then won a
world's series iu four straight games
from the Athletics never have been

lengue. Gametics is a virtue which

ting their share of admiration from
the rest of the field.
Tho Braves are not a strong aggrega-
lion, as baseball is figured from bat
ting averages. But they have deter
uiinatioa and a strong, forceful leader
to lash them to victory. Their pitch
ing staff is great and their batting
averages nre low. Their fielding won
derful and their base running passable.
Yet, so long as the pitching staff will
hold the opposition in check, the Braves
nre the best bet in nny tinll game.
The Braves lire being counted out
ut the pennant hunt by a great ninny
critics. But the count may have been
made ton soon. Any club with the
courage of the Bruves cannot be count
ed out until the lust possible chance is
gone. And there is no one who will
deny that the Braves would mnke bet

Writes About Hops
In New York States
The following letter to Miss Ella M.
Finney, of Gervais, whieh explains it
self, gives an inside view of the hop
situation, and shows how eastern grow
ers look at future of the industry:
Waterville, N. Y., Sept. 15, 1916.
My Dear Miss Finney: Mr. Terry is
finishing his last kiln of hops just about
as you are beginning and he has Bold
them already for 30 cents. He was first
offered 25 cents, then 27 1-2 and said
when he had an offer of 30 cents ohould
sell and did. They may go higher but
we never made by holding on long. A
fair yield, a little better than he ex
pected, the lice all left before they were
spoiled. Very few have been, sold yet
as most growers are still picking aud
will be for a week. A few have sold
for 25 cents. Mr. Brainard showed Mr.
Terry some Oregon hops that his agent
bought for nine cents and Mr. T. said
they were fine looking. I can't see why
there should be such difference be
tween them and the N. X. state hops,
but some say you can only brew them
in the winter. We pay 50 cents a box
for picking, $2 for pole pulling and
$5 for a regular dryer. Mr. Terry has a
helper aud stays in the hop house him
self. He paid him $3 a day. We pay
$40 house, milk, etc., to one man, $45
to another and hired a good deal by the
day, $1.75.' I think boxes hold seveu
bushels and some, have them that hold
eight. So pickers say the crop is gener
ally light, but a pretty good quality.
We have something about 10,000 al
though they are not pressed and weigh
ed, 1 think, we have less than 15 acres
used to have 25 and 30. Won't have
more than 10 uext year. There are a
very few that have from 25 to 40, but
not ninny now. I think I have written
everything I can think of about them
and I sincerely hope you may have a
good crop oud a fair price. We are al
ways thankful when they are sold and
out of our hands. Write and tell us how
you make out. I did not hear of anyone
that contracted here and no one be
longs to an association.
