Orchards in central and northern part

important apple counties as Jackson,
Lafayette, Carroll, Buchanan, Holt, was
sold either in local markets or direct to
consumer at orchard. Trucks came as far
as 100 miles to get apples direct from

many more will iouow.
The investigation so far has concerned
itself mainly Trith the street improve
ment and sewer departments of the city
governments The persons arrested in
clude a number of officials and con
tractors. It has been found that exorbit
ant sums have been paid by certain offici

shown in the construction of the new

pomp in commemoration of the late em

the people, who feci that at least that
enterprise sLould hate been immune.
In Japan, which like most other coun
tries in the Orient is the home of "com
missions' and similar gifts and pres
ents which would be termed graft in
western countries, official SDeculations of
this kind must be extremely vicious be
fore they attract attention. The police
say, however, that in this cae they in
tend to investigate to the bottom. In
this they are bac'.ed up by Count Oki,
minister of justice, who sa)s that both
Tokio and Kyoto, the former capital,
are rotton with graft.
mercial production went ino storage.
The yield in the Ozark region of Slis-1
eoun came up to September estimates.
The total comm-rcial crop will approx
imate 400,000 barrels. A Jarge part of
this crop was sold in bulk at prices rang
ing from 51.50 to $3 a 100 pounds with
average around 12 a 100 lbs. for good
tulle Ben Davi, York Imperials, etc. Jon
athans and Grimes sold for $7 to $8
Only best barrel stock of winter va
rieties was placed in jslorage for later
market. SIoaI of crop sold went into
Oklahoma, Texas and Kansas, with some
I moving in various parts of- Missouri,
northeast Arkansas and western Tennes
see. Color and size have been good and
most of fruit has been quite clean. Con
siderable hail damage in some sections
early in season caused fruit to be bulked
The average prices for the season re
ceived by Ozark growers will be high
when compared with those of plher sec
tions for same grades and varieties. Per
oent of waste will be small.
