ASSIST THE GROWERS TO SELL
Organization Will Start fourth Year Witt
Strong Protective Association—Cal
ifornia System Imitated
The national apple show will no
longer limit its scope to the display and
exploitation of the apple-growing indus
try. In addition to the other features
which have contributed to its success,
the big organization enters on its fourth
year with a strong auxiliary protective
association, which will aim to assist
orchardists throughout the Northwest in
obtaining the very best price the mar
Profiting by the satisfactory experi
ence of Southern California citrus fruit
growers, many Oregon and Washington
fruit growers have banded themselves
together for mutual protection in an
organization known as the Northwestern
Fruit Growers Exchange, with head
quarters in Portland. This organization
has accomplished such tangible results
in behalf of the individual grower, it is
now proposed to widen its influence
thru the aid of the national apple show.
One of the trustees of the apple show
will suggest at the annual meeting in
January that an auxiliary organization
be established, to be known as the Na
tional Apple Exchange or the National
Apple Show Information Bureau. It
will be the aim of this organization to
keep growers posted as to market con
ditions thruout the world; to help them
maintain and get the best possible
prices; to eliminate competition, and
to prevent the glutting of the market
by keeping the fruit moving to centers
where the supply is never in excess of
The proposed organization will prob
ably be patterned after the California
system, in which the directorate of the
parent organization is selected from the
individual associations, and its higher
officers are named in the same manner.
The organization will be strictly pro
tective, and no attempt will be made to
manipulate the market at any time. As
the interested trustee put it, it will be
the sole aim of the organization, backed
up by the national apple show, to see
growers get their just deserts and are
not wheedled out of their legitimate
profits by designing buyers who are
constantly trying to depress prices,
whether warranted by the conditions or
"The original aim of the national
apple show," said the trustee, "was to
exploit and help develop the apple
growing industry to the utmost. I see
no reason why the apple show may not
consistently aim to make apple culture
profitable as possible by keeping grow
ers thoroly posted as to market condi
tions at all seasons of the year."
For many years the orange industry
of California was confined to supplying
local markets, and it was only after the
growers effected organization and ele
vated the industry to a standard capable
of producing revenue, and mapped out
plans to invade foreign markets, that it
became one of the Golden state's great
Under the California system the
small grower has as much voice as the
man of great acreage, and his fruit goes
hand in hand with his competitors to
the markets of the world. The associ
ation maintains agents in every city in
the United States and many foreign
centers. Sales are made through these
agencies, the product being supplied
on telegraphic advice.
Among the great things accomplished
by the association, aside from establish
ing uniform grades for fruit and gaining
control of the markets, is the adjust
ment of railroad conditions that guaran
tee a fair profit to the grower. All fruit
is gathered and delivered to the local
packing house, weighed, sorted, graded,
packed and prepared for shipment. The
parent organization keeps its finger on
the pulse of the market, and the fruit
is distributed to the four comers of the
Each contributor of fruit is entitled
to ship under his individual label, thus
preserving the identity of his product.
Payment is made on a poundage basis.
The final settlement is made from the
profits after expenses are paid.
It is believed through this method it
will be possible to establish the same
reputation for the apple of the North
west as has been created for the Cali
fornia orange, and to reach markets
that have been closed heretofore owing
to the inability of the individual or
chardist to ascertain at what time and
at what point fruit was wanted.
One of the principal items in ship-
ping fruit is the question of freight
charges. By shipping under the asso
ciation plan it will be possible to take
advantage of carload rates and reduc
tions for heavy tonnage It is this ad
justment of freight rates and the advan
tage of carload shipments that enabled
California to reach the markets of Eu
rope with its oranges.
In outlining its plans for the coming
year the Northwestern Fruit Exchange
announces its object as being patterned
closely along the lines of the California
orange growers association that has
proved so successful in creating markets
and a world-wide reputation. It is
planned to establish uniform grades
which will furnish a standard of value,
thereby avoiding the present deplorable
uncertainty and confusion on the part
of the rank and file of the buying trade,
and enabling the fruit to be accurately
and intelligently described to the ab
Through insistence on the part of
the local associations of the observance
of grading rules, and the use of stand
ard and well-filled packages, it is hoped
to cultivate that confidence on the part
of the buying trade which makes for
stability of the market and avoidance of
the wild fluctuations which arrest con
sumption and unsettle confidence.
B. 11. Rawl Comments on the Dairy In-
dustry of the State
"Washington has a bright future and
gives every promise of becoming an
mportant dairy and butter state," said
B. H. Rawl, chief of the dairy division
of the Bureau of Animal Industry of the
United States Department of Agricul
ture, while in Spokane on the way to
San Francisco. He added:
"The rich western grasses, the fine
alfalfa grown in the southerl", part of
the state and other excellent forage
crops, and the equable climate and
mild winters all contribute great natural
advantages for the production of dairy
"The principal need of the dairymen
in Washington and, in fact thruout the
western country, is more education and
higher grade cows. They are already
bettering the class of their stock and
the state agricultural colleges are in
structing the dairymen and the butter
makers in getting the best results.
"Dairymen are taught how to feed
and take care of their cows and the
buttermakers are instructed in the san
itary handling of the milk and methods
to be used in getting the best butter
from the milk furnished to them by
dairymen and milk farmers.
"I believe there will soon be a
great growth in the butter industry in
the state of Washington, because the
opportunities are practically unlimited
and the people are taking hold of the
business in the right way. They
realize the importance of having high
grade stock, also the value of education
afforded by the agricultural and dairy
schools, and with this in view they will
"I am more than surprised at what
I have seen of the growth of the state
during the last 10 years, and I am
told that the development has been
rapid and the progress substantial in
all parts of the commonwealth. This
Marriages Exceed Divorces
In the year 1910, says a Wenatchee
paper, presumably after examining the
records, eighteen applications for di
vorce were filed with County Clerk J.
L. Campbell. Of these twelve were
granted a decree, one was dismissed,
and five cases are pending.
In the county auditor's office there
have been issued 162 marriage licenses.
These figures show that for every di
vorce applied for in Chelan county
there have been nine weddings. These
facts indicate a degree of marital har
mony in this county far above that en
joyed in most communities.
The abolition of the "lock step"
among the criminals at the state peni
tentiary at Walla Walla has taken place
during the administration of Governor
M. E. Hay.
The recommendation is made by the
hotel inspector in his report that the
word "transients" be stricken from the
hotel inspection law and that any build
ing having more than ten rooms devot
ed to the lodging of persons be a hotel
within the meaning of the law. His
report shows there are over 1500 hotels
in this state, which is an average of
about 40 hotels for each county.

TALK ON SAPETY
Remember These Hints When Next You Co
to the City
Twenty-one lectures have been de
livered in the high schools and gram
mar schools of Spokane and Hillyard,
closing with an interesting assembly at
Holy Names academy.
Frederick S. Hughes, field director
and "safety" lecturer of the American
Safety League, accompanied by James
Hone as the joint representative of the
Inland empire system and the Wash
ington Water Power Company, have
completed the first lap of their whirl
wind campaign, addressing the pupils
of three public schools each day and
giving two and sometimes three talks
at each school.
At Holy Names academy Mr. Hughes
said in part, according to the Spokane
"We live in a wonderful time and in
a dangerous time. Accidents are hap
pening on all sides every day. A girl
walks on a railroad track and loses both
lower limbs; a Spokane man jumps
from a car at Pasco to save a few min
utes of time and loses both feet when
he slips under the wheels; a man picks
up a live wire and has to have both
arms amputated at the shoulder —all
within a few weeks. A recent editorial
states that a state statistician says that
Washington leads in the number of
preventable accidents —over 6000 oc
curring every year.
"I have spenf part of ray life in am
bulances and at hospitals. It was my
business, whenever a girl or boy, man
or woman was hurt by a street car, to
hurry to the scene of the accident and
take them in an ambulance to the hos
pital, and every one of them said the
same thing: "I didn't think there was
any danger!' 'I didn't think the car
was so cloce when I ran across in front
of it!' 'I didn't think it was going so
fast when I stepped or jumped off!' 'I
didn't think when I walked behind the
car that was stopped or passing that
another car was coming on the other
side that would hit me!'
"One-half of the accidents that hap
pen to girls and women come from a
single, simple cause —getting off street
cars backward. There is a reason for a
woman getting off the car in the wrong
way. It is because she has no left
hand when she alights from a street car.
Of course they have the left hand with
them, but they can't use it. If they
could they would catch hold of the
handlebar with the left hand, face front,
step down with the right foot, gracefully
and in perfect safety.
"The reason a woman has no left
hand is simple —she always carries her
bundle in that hand when getting off a
car. Watch it and see. It may be her
lunch, or her school books, an umbrella
and often one of those pocketbooks as
big as a trunk and with only a lace
handkerchief in it. The cure is free,
and the prescription is the little word
'shift' —just change the bundle at the
right time to the right place. Just re
member this one thing —the right hand
is the right hand for the bundle."
PREfERS LOG CABIN
General S. B. Buckner Paints an Enticing
Picture of Home Life
Gen. Simon Bolivar Buckner, candi
date for vice president of the United
States on the gold democratic ticket in
1896, and former governor of Kentucky,
now in his eighty-eighth year, says he
is happier than anybody in the world.
In Louisville, Ky., where he was an
honorary guest at a meeting of govern
ors last month, General Buckner said:
"I can't keep out of politics. I
guess it is my blood. I wish I could
have kept out of politics all my life,
and probably I would have been a rich
man. But lam happier than anybody
in the world as it is. I came all the
way from Hart county, the best spot in
the world, and I am going back there
tomorrow, because I am homesick al
"I am livine in the same log cabin
on my farm in old Hart county that I
was born in. That cabin is 103 years
old. My father built it and it is in as
good a state of preservation today as
any one could wish. I raise my own
tobacco; I have a fine mint bed, and
my old dog General wags his tail every
time I walk into the front yard.
"This is no ordinary log cabin. It
is all logs and good old red clay, and
every room has a great big fireplace
where, in the winter, we roast apples,
pop corn, broil game and make a little
"There is a good spring just outside
the door. The water just gushes from
the rocks, and it is cool and pure as
any water in the world. Along the
banks of the little stream that trickles
from the spring grows the finest mint
in the world. This water and this mint
when combined with a little of Ken
tucky's best spirits, make the finest
mint julep in the world.
"Young man, you can te' 1 everybody
in the world I wouldn't give up this
home for the palace of a king. Multi
millionaires need never try to make me
an offer, because I would refuse all
their property for the log cabin and
that spring and that mint bed."
