Mr. Dean says:
The tariff hill just ptssed will, in my
opinion, be injurious to the fruit business
and the community at lr;e tbt-.t is, the
consumers so fr as it relates to those
articles on which the duties have been in
creased, and the onlv ones tbit can be
benefitted by it are a few hundred already
weaUhv land-owners and fru't-tirowers
In California, which is the only state in
the union that cun produce dried fruits
in competition with foreiirn products.
The balance of the population the con
sumers must py more for their dried
fruit, owing to the increased duties. For
instance, the article of prunes is a poor
man's luxury when chenn, and California,
even witb a pood cop. does rot produce
more than one-fourth of the usual r quire
mtn's for the Unites Slates, yet the duty
on them has been increased 1(K) per cent.
In a season like the present one especially,
when there is an extremely short crop, it
is a misfortune and a hardship to the poo
and those of onlv moderate means to have
increased tsxes p'aced upon an article si
largely used and which has become al
most a necessity for family use among the
medium and poorer classes.
It is said by the protectionists that
higher duties are necessary to stimulate
production in Cnliforni. This is not
true, because ever siuce they have known
they can produce prunes there, they have
increased as fast as possible and very
cheaply too. It is said by well-informed
Californium that hantltorre profits can be
made in raising prunes at four cents per
pound, and today they are selling at 12$
cents to 14 cents ier pound in New York
and it is the hoist of California fruit
Bowers, that they a:e making from $100
to (300 yearly per acre from land that
oat lss than those figures in fee simple,
and even w in all this it will he many
years before California ran produce near
ly enough prunes to supply the demand
at low prices, as it takes several years for
the trei s to grow and produce fruit. The
climate and soil for produeiag fruits of
this kind are superior to any of the for
eign countries, and without auy protec
tion of duties whatever no country in the
world can compete wiih ours. The price
of Citlifornia prunes will ran;e in this
market and. in fact, all the markets of
the United States from 75 per cent, to
100 per cent, higher than Turkish prunes,
and from 25 per cent, to 50 per cent,
higher than the French, which are the
best of foreign production.
Now what is the need of protection of
American prunes? None, except that
wealthy people enn now engage In this
immensely profitable industry, as the
fruit raising lands of California are now
held so hith by speculators and wealthy
owners, that none but those of large
means can engage in ll.
Raisins is another arlicle largely pro
duced in California, and on which the
duty has been increased from two cents
per pound to two and one-hslf cents.
This also seems to be uncalled for in
view of their being able to produce a
mucn oeuer article and at quite as low
prices as any foreign country can pro
duce them, and it will he many years be
fore it can produce even 50 per cent of
the requirements of this country. Hence
It necessitates importing more than one
half of those used with a duty of from
50 to 75 per cent on the first cost, which
Ts just so much tax to the consumer, and
benefits uo one.
Dried currants, which formerly paid
one cent per pound duty, are under the
new tariff admitted free, and the gain to
the consumer will lie that much, and un
doubtedly the consumption will be large
The duly on figs has been increased
one-half cent per pound, and for what
reason I am at a loss to understand, as
scarcely any, and none of pood quality,
have bewi produced in this country, and
it is doubtful if they can be.
Dates, the only other article affected
by the new tariff, which formerly paid
one cent per pound duty, are admitted
free, which is a beneficial measure, as
they are a wholesome fruit and can now
be sold cheaply, and the consumption
will be largely increased.
On the whole. I think the meddling
with the tariff at all has been a great
detriment to the fruit trade, and it would
have been better for the business of the
country bad the former duties not been
disturbed or changed.

Evidence Cauiax la That Prlera are
The Dry Ooodi Economist, the leading
organ of the dry goods trade, a non-partisan
paper with strong prohibitionist
leanings, has this to say about the advance
in the price of dry goods since the new
tariff took effect:
Prices are now about ten per cent higher
than in August on all spot goods in which
wool plays a prominent part as a raw ma
terial; linens and knit fabrics have im
proved in the same ratio. This improve
ment has been gradual, but not the less
certain, and wi'l give a handsome extra
profit to certain firms. It does not, how
ever, represent the whole difference be
tween present and future duties, holders
of goods having wisely adopted the course
of keeping the trade supplied bv making
the advance gradual. No artificial scar
city need therefore be feared.
It will be seen that while prices have
already advanced ten per cent, the trade
expects them to go a good deal higher.
This is pretty hard on the buyers of dry
goods, and especially those whose wages
have been reduced, or who have been
thrown out of emp'oyment, since the Mc
Kinley law went into force.

greatly enjoyed by all. A beautiful an

topic of tLe discourse waf: "The Y'oung
Man and His Companions.'' The speaki r
dwelt upon the influencn of companions
in making character, warning them
against the companionship of those who,
though not exactly" bad. yet their in
fluence tended to loosen the foundations
of virtue and lower the moral standard;
against the idle; the mere pleasure
seekers and the skeptic, and urged the
imperative need of seeking associates
among those whose influence would be ele
vating, refining and ennobling; alto to be
careful where they found their compan

"If young girls of this age ci nnot be

evident that there has been some serious
mistake in their training. Girls of this
age should never need to be pun shed lit

not their mother's fault--that th--y have
not been rightly trained. Still it feems to
be due to sonic defect of judgment on the

early childhood she cannot hope ' O do so

alienate her from her mother for lite. An
other danger of such a courie b; thiit it iu
creaws the very faults you most t eed to

disMsition to retaliate. I recall a nost in

Tlie Feminine F.nriniMte of Time.
Perhaps it is not too much to assert that
the majority of women have very inade
quate conceptions of the value and ex
tent of time. The man of bnsine-ss learns
to understand just what five minutes will
do and what it means. It may mark the
limit of banking hours or the departure of
an important train. Prompt nest, is y
large an essential in business circles, and a
few wasted moments may mean so much
of gain or loss or wasted opportunity, that
men are forced to learn the value of time,
and less frequently than women under es
timate its uses.
The woman who, in feminine parlance,
"accomplish!-" much is the woman who
has learned to use and save her minutes.
Many women who are really industrious
think nothing of squandering ten or fif
teen minutes iu unmeaning, unsat isfactory
chat with an acquaintance, nnd then won
der at the close of the day what has become
of the hours. A very few missgient half
hours destroy the day's usefulness. Al
most as deplorable as the waster of time
in gossip is the woman who never has
time for a pleasant chat with her friend
and whose mind is so crowded with social
or household cares thut she inwardly
grudges the time given to a caller. Har
A Sensible Wummi.
She takes a healthy interest in her neigh

less a scandal monger. At no time will
