Mr. and Mrs. R. S. Reinhardt re
turned to Crescent City on Monday
after spending the holidays at Lin-

has large business interests. It is
hoped by all who know them that they
will occupy their winfer home here
for the rest of the season.
The pastor of the Presbyterian
church Rev. W. L. Atkisson is putting
on for the Sunday evening services an
interesting series of Illustrated Ser
mon Lectures called "Five Crises in
the Life of Jesu" and the "Greatest
Question in the World." The slides
are splendid reproductions of the
world's master artists and every slide
is beautifully hand colored. These
lectures will begin next Sunday even
ing, the 9th jnst., and will continue
for six successive Sunday evenings.
The titles and their dates are as fol
lows: (1) "In the Wilderness With
His Life Problem," 40 slides; (2) "In
Conflict with Religious Customs," 36
slides, Jan. 16 (3) "On the Hillsides
with the Common People," 41 slides,
Jan. 23; (4) "In Wanderings with the
Twelve," 40 slides, Jan. 30; (5) "In
Gethsemane Alone with God," 50
slides, Feb. 6; (6) "The Greatest
Question in the World," 50 slides, Feb.
13. While the Sunday school lessons
are in the Gospel of Matthew these
lectures ought to be quite helpful as
well as interesting.
The citrus fruit question is the most
interesting one of all to the people
in this part of Putnam county. The
situation at the present time may be
summed up in this wey: From about
Dec. 15 to the 3d of January the pack
ing houses closed. The prices were at
the lowest of the season about the
middle of December and the markets
were stocked; there was no demand
The first of this week the situation
had brightened some; the packing
houses all resumed operations but
not at the rush stage. Some of the
largest handlers of fruits have been
asked for their opinions. Manager
E. H. Williams of the Empire, looks
for better conditions. J. B. Shiver,
representing Chase & Co., estimates
the total crop of all varieties of fruit
in this section, that is fruit 'packed
here, at 200,000 poxes, of which he
thinks that 60 per cent had been ship
ped up to the 1st of the month. R. C.
Middleton of the Standard Growers'
Exchange, agrees with Mr. Shiver on
the 200,000 box crop, but says that not
over 50 per cent of it had been taken
off the trees up to the 1st of the year.
R. M. Kirkland, manager of the
Crutchfield & Woofolk house, esti
mates the total crop at 179,000 boxes,
133,300 boxes of oranges. 40,600 of
tangerines, and 6,000 of grapefruit.
It is his opinion that there will be
shipped after the 1st of this month
55,000 boxes of oranges, 1,000 of
grapefruit, and 4,500 of tangerines.
After this week and next there will
be a slowing down of shipments until
the late fruit is in a condition to move.
