Most apple growers remove all 'lie

of Agriculture, make two or mole pick
Iuks during the season, especially when
the fruit Is not uniformly of good col

The athlsahlllty nf making more Jlinn
one picking depends upon thu extent
to which (hi; size and color of thu
fruit are ulTerted by the quantity

The apples on the outside nf the
tree, especially the larger mid better
colored mill, are icmoicil at thu tlrst
picking to permit the limbs to lift

about an Increase In size of the fruit

DESTROY PEACH-TREE BORER
Only Reliable Way to Get Rid of Pests
Is to Dig Them Out With
Good Sharp Knife.

should go over the orchard ami exam

Indication Is the appearance of was

I It Is 11 rather slow process of get

with a knife. Hut this Is about the
only reliable way. (."lit out anil ili-

extent, nnd enables the tree to cmer

SET FRUIT TREES IN AUTUMN

Make jour plans to set fruit trees as
soon as thu autumn tlajs come, where
the foliage has been cast and the
ground Is moist and well prepared.
Tills should I e done before the busy
spring tlajs, when farmers have so
great demand upon their time. .Make
plans to set a few good varieties nf
fruits nnd select those that ripen lu

fresh fruit most of thu season.

When a Federal Bureau reminds
you that children should not
drink coffee or teawhy not think
of your own health ?
The Federal Bureau of Education Includes
in its rules to promote health among, the Nation's
school children, the warning; that children should
not drink coffee or tea.
The reason is well known. Cofleo and tea
contain druRS which stimulate, and often over
excite the nerves, and so upset health.
The harm is by no means confined to chil
dren, as any doctor can tell you.
If health Is valuable to childhood, It is valu
able always. If harm to health should bo avoided
until bodies grow up, is it worth taking a chunco
with health when bodies have grown up?
You can have that delicious and satisfying
cereal beverage, Postum, with any meal, and bo
