prominent West street
applo shippor to an

porter, "that it is
rather a difficult thing
to tell whether it is an
off year or not. There
was a time when it was
the general rulo that if
there wore no apples
In Wayne, Niagara and
in this Stato, there
wero none in the
country, and this was about the truth. Now,
however, if thoro are no apples in ono section
We can got them in another, and wo go South
knd North from thorn. A great many apples
tome from Nova Scotia and Canada to Bup
hly this market, and then again wo draw a
large supply from Virginia. The West is not
an apple-growing region."
" How about this year?"
I " There is a full crop in the western coun
ties of Now York, so it may bo regarded as an
old-fashioned applo ycar.'although there is a
scaroity in some of tho now regions, particu
larly in Monroo and Cattaraugus Counties,
Whore only ono-holf a crop is reported. In
the West tho yiold is very light. It is esti
mated that tho New York crop is somowhore
In tho neighborhood of 8,000,000 barrols this
year. This is exclusive of the apples used in
cider-making and includes only those shipped
" Aronot a great many of tho apples which
como to this market shipped to Europe?"
" Certainly, they form during the seasons,
. that is during October and November, ono of
the principal articlos of expert from this
port. It is cRtiuiatod that ovor ono million
will bo shipped to Europe this year from all
tho ports. The exports from Now York aro
rotten behind those of last year up to tho
proseut time, although last wook they went
up to 20,000 barrols. Tho total figures this
year up to Nov. 1 aro 189,928 barrels against
257,683 barrels for tho corresponding time
" Whore do tho oxportapplcs como from?

that come to this market aro taken for Bliip.
rueut, and Now York people got only the
IcavingB, so to speak. This is because tho de
tnnud is so actho, and bocauso only tho
soundest and best apples that can bo pro
cured are nvailablo for export. If not sound,
Uiey could not stand tho voyage, and the
fruit would arrive in an unsalable condi
tion. A great deal of money has been lost
by shippers from this very cause, and now it
pas come to bo regarded as a vory ticklish
" Which aro tho best applos for export ?"
" Well, I suppose you might call Baldwins
End Greenings the favorites. They aro the
est for export bocause at this season of tho
jonr they aro hnrd as bricks, and aro loast
affected uy transportation. At wholesale
they bring from $1.60 to $2 a barrel, and
they aro now coming into tho market in great
quantities. Another good oxport apple, and
n great favorite with English consumers, is
tho Northorn Spy, which comes only from
tho western counties of this State. It is a
largo roddish apple, with a pocnliar and deli,
cato flavor. Spitzonbergs, which sell at
31.75 to $2.25 a barrel at wholesale, are of
course ono of tho old stand-bys, and aro al
ways eagerly gobbled up by dealers, both for
tho local and tho oxport trade."
" What aro some of the fancy varieties V
" Tho Newtown pippin, which comes from
Virginia, is one of the favorite fancy grades.
The price ranges between $3 and $6, ac
cording to tho supply. Tho King variety
sells at $3 a barrel, tho Gravenstein, from
Nova Scotia, is worth about 93.60, and the
Snow 83.25. Those aro all wholesale prices.
Among other fancy grades are tho Yorktown
and Monmouth pippin, tho Cranberry pippin.
Egg Tops, None Such, Vandeveors and
twenty-ounco pippin, hut the supply of these
apples in tho markot is always very small."

HINTS TO THEATRE-GOERS,
Wear your drcsa suit snd don't dare to have
moro than two buttons on your waistcoat. Every
additional button la a knlfo In your claims to re
spectability. Never appear bo-bontonnlorcd. Let people think
that you've Just got np from dinner, tor which yon
Invariably dress. A tiny blot of gravy on your
shirt-front to help tho Illusion will not bo amiss.
If you value your good name, never look as
though you wero enjoying yourself. It Is tho
height of vulgarity snd unworthy of a metropolitan
theatro-gocr. It will gain for you the qualification
of ' disgustingly provincial. "
Never remain between the sets with the Isdy
whom you havo brought to the theatre. She will
probably protest that sho docsnt like you to leave
her, but she will think all the more of you when
Loll In the lobby and look as though life were
not a bit worth living. It any ono ask you what
yon think ot the play, atare at him, twirl your
mustache, laugh cynically, snd declare that you
Avoid allowing people to suppose that you see s
plsy for the first time. If tbe ploco hss nover
been dono here previously, assert that you saw It
in London, don'tchernow, even though you
haven't been nearer England tlan the Canard
As you aro leaving the theatre, linger In the
lobby for a few minutes, snd peer Into the dark
ness of the street as though you wero awaiting
your carriage. Then suddenly tuck your com
panion's arm In yours and dart out. This mode of
exit is very effective. Alan IUlx.
ltouiance ef a Model's ZJfe.
frm (A CMoago InUr Oeoan,
The romance of atudio life appeals very strongly
to the heart of every woman. The life of a model,
as long as hor popnlartty lasts, Is like a panorama
ot beautiful sights, ploaaant sounds and delightful
sensations.. The atmosphere of tho studio attunes
the souls of both artists and models to senti
ment. Fancy sitting all day on a dais In
a classic white robe with fioworlng azaleas
all about and above yon, shedding their
Intoxicating perfume on all aides, llko
a steady stream of heavenly breczesl Is It any
wonder the artist f alia In love with hla model when
be aeea her raised above htm under her canopy ot
flowers, like a vision of Ideal womanhood, a gold-en-hatred
saint In a shrine or a Ureek girl awaiting
ber lover In tbe temple of Flora? Marriages are
said to bo made In heaven. They are certainly
made In studios under most favorable auspices.
Good art demands good models. At present they
are rare, and It la not a manor of astonishment
that the artist who hss discovered a satisfactory
female model should make her his own for life by
position, his gontlo blood, his inhorited and
accumulated wealth rather as a tribute to
Ills personal excellence and respectability :
