CHULESTOIN'S EXPORT COAL
TERMINAL NOW COMPLETE
Southern Railway Bas Placed Pal
metto Port on Parity With Other
Charleston, S. C., Oct. 30.-South
ern Railway's export coal terminal,
recently completed at Charleston at
a cost of approximately $600,000, gives
Charleston facilities which will cn
able it to compete on an equal basis
with any other port on the Atlantic
seqboard for traffic in coal for car
riage over seas and is therefore ai im
provement of great interest and im
portance not only to Charleston, but
as well to the entire Southeasiern
territory, particularly the coal 19roduc
ing sections. Coal can now be loaded
into ships at Charleston as apidly
and as cheaply as at any other Amer
lean port and freight rates Ijave been
so adjusted that coal operators ship
ping through Charleston will be on
a parity with producers expotting
The terminal embodies the iuost
modern ideas for facilities of thli
character. Coal is dumped from cars
byturning them bottom upwards and
falls into a hopper from which it is
fed into the holds of ships by a belt
conveyor and a telescopic chute which
not only make very raplid handling
possiblo but eliminate to a great de
gree the breakage which results when
coal is dumped Into ships bly gravity
from elevated pockets.
The coal handling machinery con
sits of a car dunper and a loading
tower both of which are operated en
tirely by electricity. They are locatol
on a steel and concrete piler, 375 feet
in length, fronting on water :20 f'et
deep at inean low tide. 'T'l plier is
connected with the mainland by a
creosoted trestle, :1,800 feet long.
Car's are pushed into Mhe dumper by
a switch engine. When power is ap
plied, the car is automatically clamp
ed and turned-body, truclks, and the
section of the track on which it
stands-to such an angle tiat the coal
pours into the hopper. Whe)C'fn the car
Ns empty the dumper returns to its
normal position. As another loaded
car is shoved into the dumper it, push
es out the emlpty, which them rutns
to the end of the pier and by meani of
a "kick back" is retuined automatical
ly to the storage track.
The loading tower consists -of the
hopper into which coal i.s dined
from cars, the belt conveyor, anl the
telescopic chute by mteanis of wiicht
coal can he delivered to any irt of'
a ship, thus eliminating '"Irimming"
to a great extent.
Both the car duper and the loading
tower are movable and can be shift
ed to serve different hatches, so that
when a ship is once tied u p at (lie
l)ier it is unnecessary to move it until
full cargo has been received.
The capacity (f the plant is froti
1,500 to 2,000 tons per hour. A car
can be unloaded in about two mtinutes
and the plant will handle ears up to
100 tons capacity, though for the
present 50 ton cars will be the heavi
est sent to it. The Plant can handle
in one day as much coal as5 wa's Cex
lorted through Charlest on in the cmn
tIre year of 1!) 3.
The termtiinal Is comlen ilte ini itself
but should business beyondl its captaci
ty develop provision has been made
for' the addition of similar units.
In connection with the coal lpier),
a storage yardl of 400 car's cap~acity
has been conmstrmucted at Chtarleston1
andi additional passing track( taii ii
ties have been prlov'lided on the lines
leading from the coal fields.

I do think our' farmers would make no0
mistake in sowing a good area it
wheat this tall. Why should we, as
farmers, allow the farmer in Trennes

wheat for us, when weo can grow it 1as
cheaply as he and save the frelght? To
successfully make whteat, it must be
sown in due season and now is the
time to begin.

H0W TO HANDLE FRUIT
Care Must Be Exercised in Piok
Ing and Packing Apples.
Apples Are' Very Easily Bruised,
Thereby Presenting Unattractive
Markets in Selling.
Few people realize the importance of
handling apples with care while pick
Ing, packing and marketing. Apples
are bruised very easily and especially
those varieties having a tender flesh
or skin. Bruises mean not only an un
attractive appearanco, but a real waste
of fruit by having to cut out the
bruised tissue. Probably the greatest
damage from bruises, however, results
from tho fact that the bruises furnish
an entrance for fungus or rot spores.
These spores, or "fungus seeds," are
as fine as (lust and float in the air. If
they happen to lodge on a bruised or
broken spot on the apple, they take
root and grow and spread through
the apple, causing it to rot. Wrapping
or covering the apple may not always
protect it, as the spores may have
lodged on the apple before it was
picked. Ilowever, if the skin and flesh
of the apple can be kept intact and
not bruised or broken. there is not
much danger of the fungus or rot find.
ing its way into the apple.
To prevent bruising, apples should
not be dropped or thrown into a
bucket, box or barrel, and in pouring
from one vessel to another care should
.be taken that the apples are as close
as possible to the bottom of the vessel
in which you are placing them before
the pouring begins. If a pail is used
to pick in, it should be small enough
to lower into the boxes and, even then,
holding back the apples with the
hands is a good idea, as it breaks the
fall and lessens the bruising. No apple
which falls from the tree should be
allowed to go Into the first grado ap

Conven ent and Useful Packing Stand.
Watch the miarkets and always have
your fruit ready to sell when the
prices are most favorable.
It ia folly to spend years in bring
Ing up a good orellard and then allow
the buyers to come in and take them
at their own price.
Of course it pays well to raise fancy
apples if all the details of packing
and seiling are attended to, but it
miust be remembered that the bulk of
the fruIlt consumed is of the standard
When apples are shipped from the
orchard in bulk the packer makes a
very nice prollt in sorting and packing
in clean boxes or barrels-a thing the
grower should do himself.
