IN APPLE CROP
Weather Conditions and Small
Use of the Spray Are
H. A. Cardinell.
PRICE VARIES GREATLY
Plenty of Cider This Fall But
Merchants Refuse to
Sell It Because of
While the apple crop this )car i" one
of the largest that Missouri has ever pro
duced, neer has the crop been so marked
with imperfect apples. Good apples
arc scarce, according to !1. A. Cardinell
of the College of Agriculture Kxtension
department. Mr. Cardinell has been vi-
iting out the state, stuilying conditions
and conferring with farmers regarding
improvement of future crops and the
handling of this one.
lloone County is no exception in regard
to the qualit) id the apple crop. The
merchants id Gdumbia are ahnol unani
mous in saying that they have never seen
more blemished and imperfect fruit.
None of the merchants interviewed this
morning were making an) effort to store
apples for the winter.
V.eather condition-, together with the
bdicf h the fruit growers that all apple
heavy rains earlv in the season, is the
wrong kind of weather for apples to de
velop perfectly, according to Cardinell.
LlTTtC CARE IN HARVESTING
Prof. T. J. Talbert. head of th- horti
culture department was asked about the
handling of apple-.
"The average farmer harvests his ap
ples with little or no care, and this cuts
down his margin of profit considerabt).
High grade, clean, marketable app'cs
should keep well in cold storage if the
proper precautions are taken in picking.
handling, cooling and storage," said Mr,
, "The practice of picking and piling
apples unler the trees in the orchard
wherr they may be left for a week or
more is one of the greatest causes of rot
and poor keeping. The soontr apples are
sortrd after picking and plated in clean,
cool storage the better they will keep.
Prompt cooling is essential in order to
effectively retard the ripening proce-ses
which finall) result in the decay of the
"If the fruit grower is to succeed he
must al-o give such factors as proper ma
turity and careful harvesting as much at
tention as prompt cooling. These are ex
jceedingly important points to be obcntd
I in determining the length of time that
'fnitf iItt Leeti in sinrnf-r. Cnrplessnpss
or neglect in one may nullify all the good
accomplished b) care in the others.
"Over-ripe apples will go down in stor
age with even greater rapidity than im
mature fruit. Only experience will en
able the grower to give proper attention
to the various factors which indicate the
proper maturity of the fruit for harvest
ing, marketing and storage."
Jonathan apples seem to lead all other
varieties in Boone Count) in production
and predominate in Columbia markets.
They arc followed closely by Grimes
Golden, Ben Davis and York lmierial.
Almost ever) variety known lo horticul
turists is grown to some extent in Boone
The price asked for apples varies great
ly. Saturday apples could be bought in
the stores at prices ranging from 75 cents
a bushel for a Nery low grade Jonathan
to 60 cents a peck for select hand-picked
Crimes Golden. The dominant price
is about $1.25 a bushel. Prices at the
orchards arc much lower. There you can
get apples from 23 cents up to $1 a
bushel. The cheaper apples, which are
not sold by the merchants, as a general
rule, are fit only for cider making or feed
ing lo stock.
MLCH CIDER MADE
There will be much cider made tlus fall,
but the merchants are not handling it.
"There is too much risk." said the pro
prietor of one of the largest grocery"
stores in town. "It will ferment in two or
three days and the law would step in. If
we could get a few gallons each day so
that we could be sure of selling it before
it forms too large a percent of alcohol
we might handle it.
Fanner's Bulletin number 1261, which
is devoted to the making of cider, says
regarding fermented apple juice:
"It is illegal to possess, except in the
home, cider containing more than one
lialf of 1 percent alcohol by volume with
out a permit. If a persjn purchases cider
for commercial u-e containing less tli3n
one-half of 1 per cent by volume, and
such cider later develops a greater alco
holic content than permitted by law, the
person so possessing such cider in good
faith mav apply for a permit to dispose of
t the same to another per-on.
When the alcohol content of cider is
kept at all times below one-half of 1
cent by volume the manufacturer is no:
required to give bond or secure a permit

The roads of Boone County will not be
lifted out of the ruts and mire until the
people have overcome their lack of inter
est in the opinion of J. T. McMulIen, a
member of the Commercial Club, who has
been actively connected with road work
for some time.
"Boone County, with its location and
its prosperity, should lead the state in the
construction and maintenance of good
roads. It should set the example to the
other sections of the state. But as it is.
Boone County has some of the poorest
roads in Missorri. It is a shame the
county does not do something about it,"
The outlook for better roads is hope
less Mr. McMulIen said, as long as the
people over the county are as disinterest
ed as they now arc. One cause for the
failure of the county to provide adequate
roads, it is under-tood, is the lack of Co
operation and the petty quarrels among
the property owners along the roads.
The road between Columbia and Roche-
port, which is being advertised by tourists
as the worst stretch of road between th
Atlantic and the Pacific, will apparently
remain in its present condition. The own.

The Rocheport road has been going
from bad lo worse since it was taken over
by the county from the private toll com
pany eight years ago, according to XIr.
It is worse than useless," he said, "lo
build roads anil then allow them to go to
pieces with the vvear of traffic and tha
erosion caused by rains."
Columbia has seven gravel roads and a
numbcr of dirt roads leading into tha
city from the surrounding country. The
care of all these roads for four miles out
of Columbia, has been placed in the hands
6f the Columbia Special Road Commia-
I sion, the two toll roads excepted.
The Fulton gravel which runs east ot
Columbia to Fulton through Harg, is Tar
via macadam. This road and the Roche
port gravel must bear most of the traffic
east and west through the state until the
stale highway is completed probably in
about three years, according to B. II.
Piepmeier, slate highway engineer.
The two toll roads, the Ashland jjravel
running south of Columbia, ajd the Hin

tion, recent reports show.

DIRT HOVDS VAIfl
The many dirt roads which interlace
the count) are at present in fair condition,
in the opinion of L. D. Shobe, superin
tendent of the. Columbia Special Road
Commission. AH the dirt roads in the
district have been graded and dragged
since the lat rains.
Dirt roads are the cheapest in the long
run for rural use, if they are properly
cared for, road experts agree. But to be
of practical use ihcy must be dragged and
graded after every heavy rain.
Tlie limit of expenditure in the Colum
bia road district for the upkeep and con
struction of roads is at present about
$14,000 a year. This amount. Mr. Shobe
says, is inadequate for proper mainten
ance of the roads. There arc in this dis
trict eleven bridges, at least 100 feet long
and many smaller ones to be kept in safe
condition. Mr. Shobe has ten men with
five teams and two trucks constantly work-
ing on the roads. In the rainy seasons
dirt roads are almost impassable until
they can be graded and dragged.
The roads out of Columbia, with the
greatly increasing number of automobiles
here, would become increasingly popular
for pleasure drives if they were in good
condition, say local taxi men. As it is.
they have many calls for trips chiefly to
Moberly and to Jefferson Gty. Some
companies make four or five such trips a
week, when the roads are in their best
The roads outside of the Columbia dis
trict are under the care of Ernest Brown,
county highway engineer. The funds for
them come from the 9100.000 road bond

The Iat of these bonds are being paid
off this year.
Reports from other counties show great
activity in the construction and repair of
their roads. "Callaway County, especially,
