RECORD PRICES FOR FIRST BERRIES
Crlafleld, Md., May I.—The first
strawberries shipped to Northern mar
kets from Somerset were made tills
week, and commanded high prices.
The berries wore shloped from Marl
on, the largest strawberry renter In the
world, and it is said the first crate sold
for *19.20, which is equivalent to OOcts.
a quart. Thirty-four crates left Marl
, on yesterday and sold for prices rang
ing between *9 and s{3, which compares
favorably with last year’s opening mar
ket. It is said that the highest price
paid ior a crate of berries fn 1920 was
, 110, and that the average the season
i through waa *B. Because of the short
age In the berry crop it is thought
, there Is a possibility of last year's re
cord prices being maintained this soa
, son.
The acreage under cultivation l ex
ceptionally largo, four r five times
greater, it is said, than that of 1920.
The growers sav, however, the crop
has been damaged 50 per cent by re
cent frosts in this section, and they do
1 not look for a large yield. Some of
( the growers escaped with small losses
■ because their berries were located un
i der the edge of wdbds and thickets,
which afforded a protection to the tend
i er blossoms, it Is said the “Horsey
• Favorite,” which Is a local variety,
, withstood the climate changes better
F than many of the other berries and
■ that these have not been damaged
materially.

off Claiborne on July 2. Some of the
. boats already havo stopped work, but
1 the last will be In by Saturday, with
’ nothing to do except a little lumber
’ hauling or Ifght freighting.
The boatmen are now looking for
• ward to the races, not only because of
) ihc prizes to he offered, but because
they are interested in the proposal to
, revive all the old competition that once
. prevailed. A generation ago there
wore several bugeyes that claimed the
hay championship, and no trouble was
! ever met with in arranging a contest
1 between them, nor was any hew chal
lenger ever neglected,
i The bugeves, being a lyiie of boat
l exclusive to the diespeake, are consid

will present a ciqi to the first-place
winner in this class also.
All bugeyes and skipjacks of the
’ Chesneake and its tributaries may en
ter, providing they are used as work
-1 boats part of the year They must
carry only their regular working sails
In the raves and must lie rigged Re
cording to their type of boat. This
will mean that bugeyes cannot enter
with schooner rigs or carrying any of
the large gaff headed sails, as this
would give them an advantage over
those boats with the triangular sails,
which have a smaller area.
The entries for the races are living

ZENITH CARBURETORS |
Proof of Good Carburetion j
I There’s one thing wa like about handling the Zenith Car- §
I burotor—wo don’t have to make claims about what we can Z
do—we can point to >|h achievements and let them sneak tor *
themselves. J
When we can point to the fqct that Zenith was used on ?
De Palma’s ‘‘Packard )>O6” when it made the world record J
for acceleration—we don’t have to make claims about its
quick PICK UP. i
When we can show that Zenith was chosen for every ■
Liberty engine and for the trans-Atlantic plane “NU-t”, Z
where lives literally depended upon fuel saving, it is un- ;i
necessary to argue about Zenith economy. Z
When we can tell you that Zenith was used on all the 1
large French and British tanks and is now used on the 3ft- ?
ton Baldwin locomotive—we don’t need to say that Zenith §
gives POWER, |
When we can prove that Zenith is now used by more than ■
7o |sir cent of all European automobile builders and by Z
more than 100 American manufacturer* of cars and trucks— g
we need say no more about Zenith EFFICIENCY and 1
DEPENDABILITY. . i
What Zenith has done is the best proof of what Zenith ?
can do. If your car or truck is not Zenith-equipped, see us. f

I An Artistic Roof I
I for Your Home— I
I The possibilities for artistic treatment afforded by Johns- fl
Manville Transite Asbestos Shingles have thus far been ■
■I but partially developed. The different colors, shapes, B
fl sizes and thicknesses of this modern roofing and the 1
■ opportunities to vary methods of laying to obtain distinct I
and attractive roof effects, prove this a rich field for study, j ,[?
Nor is it difficult to foresee the time when inflammable I
fl roofings will be generally prohibited by law, as evidenced I
I by many recent city ordinances.
I In Johns-Manville Transite Asbestos Shingles you can 1
fl have a distinctive roof, free from the threat of communi- S|
fl cated fire. It will neither burn, rust, rot, nor demand I
fl periodic and costly repairs.
