None from Kentucky
In glancing over the December
loth issue of the Weather, Crop
and Markets issued by the De
partment of Agricuttue which
gives car load shipments of fruits
and vegetables of all the states,
we see an apples were shipped

or last season. New York" with
17,832 car loads leads all other
ftates three fold. Michigan ex
ported 5,080 car loads while
Maine was third of the. states
with 4,300 car loads. In all of the
vegetables listed Kentucky is
shipping none of them. This is
probably one reason why the
Kentucky farmer is less prosper
