How to Market it .Prospects for a
Len. G. Herrxlnii & Co., packers
and exporters of h in I fruits, Louis
ville, Ky., issue the following circu-
lar, which will lie of interest to fruit-
To all put ties wly carried over
dried fruit.3 during the uiist season,
there was HuilU'ienl '.compensation.
On the loth day of July I8!)0, wesent
out circulars to all our friends and pa
trons urging them t dry all the fruit
they could secure as it would un
doubtedly bring the highest price
known for years: IJvery one who
look our advice and bought fruit
while it was cheap, made money,and
made big money.
Owing to great scarcity of fruit dur-
ing the season just passed, all holders
of old iruit were able to realize hand-
somely on their investments, and
stock that in former years would
have been unsaleable and a dead
loss to the owner, brought very grat-
Hying . prices. ; Kspeeially was this
the case with dried peaches which
for the past thrte years had been a
drag to the market.
The market op ne on peaches at
2 to 2ij cents per pound, and rapidly
advanced to 7 cents a pound, in car
load load lots. In small lots as high
as 10 cents per pound was realize
for common sun dried peaches. ,
Dried apples opened at 4 cents, and
closed at 10 cents, at winch price
stocks were all closed out, notwith
standing this high price. At this
writing we feel sale in saying that
no sun-dried apples, or sun-dried
peaches will be carried over next
season, at home or abroad.
Our reports from Europe are all to
the effect that the markets there
are bare of all kind of dried fruit.
Owing to the extreme scarcity of
fruit last season, and the consequent
jy prevailing nign prices, there was
hardly any foreign demand and our
export orders were very light, but
this year we expect to do a very
large business abroad.
Our agents in Great IJritain,
France, Germany, Belgium and Hoi
land report the finest prospects ever
known for a profitable business this
year. We do not look for extremely
high prices this year, but the volume
of business will be much larger and
the result about the same.
The Eastern market will be good
buyers of fruit from this section this
fall, as the crop is short there. In
view of all these facts, as stated
above, we earnestly urge all parties
to dry all the apples they possibly
can secure, and sincerely believe that
in doing so they will be well repaid
Apples of large cut, well peeled
and cored, of bright color, are worth
at least one cent per pound more than
apples of smaller cut and slovenly
cared for. All bright apples will
meet ready sale.
There is a growing demand for ap
ples impeded and not cored; that is,
quarter the apples and dry them
with peelings on and cores; while the
price for these goods will not be
wortli as much as bright apples,
they will find ready sale and there
should be little trouble in curing
mem. iney snouid be snipped sep
arate from suiwlried apples.
Louisville is the most important
market for sun dried apples in this
country, and has the largest foreign
reaches have been almost driven
out of the market by California fruits.
The slovenly Way in which they
have been prepared in this State,
Missouri, and in Tennessee, is the
cause of all this. But if peaches are
dried properly and not burnt, and of
good size they will meet with a
ready sale at good prices.
All merchants in country towns
can readily make money on dried
fruits, by shipping it to market when
they buy it, and not pay over mar
ket quotations; but if they pay more
than market value, merely on the
idea that it will be higher, they sel-
dom make, but lose. Parties often
write us asking for advice whether to
buy and hold or sell. We always
answer, buy so you can sell at a prof-
it, and sell at once. Would like to
hear from parties who receive circu-
:.'rs ns to the prospects of dried fruits
in their section, stating the different
kinds dried, and about the quantity
that will be dried of each, and to
what markets they have formerly
been shipped. We nr1 satished it
w ill pay you to ship to his market,
and that you will realize more net
money for your fruit.
Are more in favor each season, and
we ought to have a larger trade on
them, but the Southern style of put
ting them up makes them very un
certain, as the packages are of all
kinds, (and fruit, about the; same
way,) some fruit worth 4 cents and
some worth 12 cents in the same box,
making all undesirable at 5 cents,
We will gladly furnish parties ( who
desire it, full Instructions how to put
up evaporated fruits.
blackbeuiuks, teaks, peeled
And all dried friiita, will meet with
ready sale in the Louisville market.
Louisville does not solicit consign
ments of dried fruit by quoting
high prices which are never realized,
Parties shipping here will find that
they will gel good prices and not ' be
eaten up with sundry charges. "'
We will at all times pay extra
prices for t large-cut,'r bright apples,
Will bepleased to hear from parties
who have goods of this class. It
should be lo the interest of all to have
fruii saved, as it is just that much
money to each neighborhood; urge
all parties to dry the fruit that they
cannot sell green, and. have . your
county papers do the same, as it will
be wanted this year at good round
prices. , . ,
Wheat, Smut and Blucstone.
BY X. B. DUDLEY, LOGAN COUNTY,
Farmers Home Journal.
Now that we have threshed wheat
and some farmers find their crops
short from ten to twenty per cent, by
reason of the smut they have raised,
and expect to sustain a further loss of
ten to twenty per cent, iii the price
of what they have to sell, it is reason
able that they should be thinking
about better farming in the next
crop, if smut is let alone n would
take a very little while for it to con
sume every grain in the crop. It is
important to every farmer that he
should know as far as he can what
smut is because he can then the
more intelligently apply proper rem
edies. Smut is not a disease inher
ent in wheat or other grain, but it
is a fungus, a parasite growth that
draws nutrition for its support and
maturity from the wheat plant. I
suppose every particle of smut dust
to be a smut germ and when it ad
heres to the grain of even sound
wheat it remains dormant until the
next spring when it also germinates
and multiplies itself very rapidly at
the expense of the wheat. Where
we find one head of smut we -always
find every hoad in that stool a smut
head. This proves that the grain
producing that stool is the one start
ing point of smut for that group of
smut heads. It is not proper to say
that feeble grains produce smut. If
the feeble grains produce anything it
will be wheat, but most likely it wiil
be other feeble grains and should
therefore be screened or fanned out
as far as possible.
The proper way to get rid of smut
is to kill it. Forty years' experience
makes me know that the immersion
(not sprinkling) of seed wheat in a
solution of bluestone will certainly
kill all the smut germs adhering to
the wheat. It will do this no matter
what proportion of the crop in which
the seed may have grown had been
destroyed by smut. I have usually
used a bluestone liquor of the
strength of one pound of bluestone to
six or eight gallons of water but a
little more or a little less would effect
the desired object. The immersion
of the wheat does not perceptably
weaken the bluestone quality of the
liquor, but whenever more water
may be added of course more blue'
stone should be. When I have been
in a hurry to prepare the liquor for
the reception of the wheat I have
pulverized, to some extent, the
lumps and then used very hot water
to dissolve the blucstone. I prefer
that the wheat shall be in the solu
tion for an hour or more, for then I
know that the water has penetrated
the hairy end of every grain. And
when I wish to do an extra good job
of farming I like to roll the wet
wheat in land plaster and this dries
and makes it ready for the drill much
sooner. I have thought that I have
seen a difference in the growth of the
wheat plant where land blaster had
been thus used.
Another reason lor immersion of
the wheat is that it saves all the blue-
stone liquor, not adhering to the
wheat, for subsequent use.
It is proper that I should admit
that there have liei '!l Ii1(ntv nf in-
stances in which the sowing of wheat,
when ground was too wet to be work
ed or when the seeding was done
too late in the fall and other cases of
shoddy farming, had seemed to in
crease the amount of smut in the
I have no doubt but that wo have
much to learn in this direction. But
we have all learned enough to know
that good farming pays better than
I have heard this season more than
the usual complaints of smut, and
this has prompted me to the writing
of this letter.
. This will invariably prevent smut.
I know this from many years experi
ence. S. McBamsev.

Fannie lived in a large city, and
while she had been taught to be
kind to poor, unfortunate people, she
was unlike some little girls, for she
remembered what she had been
taught. One day she saw on the
street a poorly dressed Irish girl,
with a homely face, looking anxious
ly at the houses. Every person to
whom she spoke either shook their
head, or did not trouble themselves
to do that". When she reached Fan
nie, she asked, politely, "Can you
tell me where number 874 is, miss?"
"Let me see," said Fannie, bright
ly. "This is number 10. It is a long
way to 874, and you have to turn
twice; but I am going nearly there,
and will show you."
Fannie thinks she never will forget
Ihehjppy look which made the face
of her companion almost pretty,
when she said, "Indeed, I do thank
ye, miss, an' I wish that every folks

When Undo Remus ntade his appear
ance one morning recently for the pur
pose of putting his Miss Sally's flower
garden to rights after the heavy rains,
he brought William Henry, his grandson,
with him. ' "
"Ho Rfich a no 'count nigger ho can't

"Why, I thought he went back to the
dairy business, " said the lady. "Didu't
the dairy man take him back after ho
had the trouble with the deaf man ?" '
"Oh. yessuml exclaimed Uncle Re
mus. "Oh, yessuml he tuck Mm back)
but dat ain't do no good. He got town
nigger blood in Mm, dat boy is, en he
aiu't never gwine res' sati'fied twel ho

"What was the matter, William
Henry ?" tho lady asked.
"Hoi' up yo' head, nigger, en talk ter
Miss Sally, 'fo I bus' you wide open wid
dis hoe helve!" exclaimed Uncle Remus.
"Wellum," said William Henry with
an embarrassed air, "de man tuck mo
back, but ho say I can't drive do milk
wagin no mo', 'cause I let de mule git
away dat time, an' den he sot ma ter
feediu' an' watchin' de stock. Countin'

mighty lonesome. Dat deway it done
me. Dey ain't no town out dar. All
you kin do after you git froo yo' work is

"Miss Sally, "said Uncle Remus, "what
tell you 'bout dat town nigger? Talk
up, boy, en tell de trute. Don t bo
hatch in' no tales."
I aiu't hatchin' no tales, daddy," said
William Henry. "I'm telhn' Miss Sally

What was the trouble, then? ' the
lady inquired with some curiosity.
" Whyn t you talk up, nigger, when
Miss Sally ax you?"
Wellum, " said William Henry, "dey

" Were the mules hurt?" asked the lady.
"No'm!" exclaimed William Henry, in
a tone which implied his belief that not
even a blast of dynamite could hurt a
mule, "dey want nothin' 'tall de matter
