Bald Knob, May 6.—In order to
keep Bald Knob out in front as
the first strawberry producing
point in Arkansas, J. R. Kilman
and W. H. Nichols, two large
growers here closed a deal Tnurs
day with Louis Hubach of Jud
sonia, by which they acquire the
rights to a new variety of straw
berry propagated by Mr. Hu
bach, paying him $25 per 1000
for 30,000 plants to be delivered
this spring, and contracting for
all the plants he can grow on two
acres for delivery in 1923 at $10
per 1000. Mr. Hubach retains
the right to fruit as many plants
as he desires, but is to sell no
plants, except to Kilman &
The variety has been named
the Early Hubach. It ripens
with the Excelsor and is a larg
er, firmer, better flavored berry
that will ship well and is very
productive. Mr. Hubach has
picked 14 crates less than a third
of an acre and still has growing
berries and blooms. The 30,
000 plants will distributed,
among the growers here in small
quanity in older to get a large
acreage quickly.
A school teacher recently put
the question to a class in the
Third grade, as to how many
seasons there were in a year.
A small boy with, a keenly devel
oped commercial mind,—and un
doubtedly destined to be a mer
chant prince,— promptly replied
that there were two, “the busy
season and the dull season.”
As we are now on the thresh
old of the so-called “dull season”
we might well determine to
speed up our efforts rather than
relax, bearing in mind that apt
Fable which runs as follows:
“A naturalist divided an a
quarium with a clear glass par
tition. He put a lusty bass in one
section and minnows in the oth
The bass struck every time a
minow approached the glass par
tition. After three days of fruit
less lunging, which netted him
only bruises, he ceased his ef
forts and subsisted on the food
that was dropped in for him.
Then the Naturalist removed
the glass partition. The min
nows swam all around the bass
but he did not strike at a single
one. He had been thoroughly

These are the figures furnished;
by Mr. John Snow, of the Bu
reau of Markets at Judsonia.
Total cars shippedthis season
in the United States, 12,572; to
tal cars shipped in Arkansas this !
season, 1,750.
The 1922 strawberry season
is practially over and while in
some ways it has been very dis
appointing on account of bad
weather condition, there is one
tact that stands but like a sore
fingure- The system of mark
eting fruit needs closer organ-,
ization. While the present
manner of each association sales
man handling the output of his
membership is a long step in ad
vance of each growers shipping
by local express.
The whole district output
should be handled by one head,
sold on the idea that business
was bad.
Moral. Take another shot at
the glass partition. You’ll
find it isn’t there.”
In conclusion, our suggestion
and advice is that we all take pot
only another, but numefdfc&v
shots at the glass partition.

The White County Strawberry

salesmen who are the equal of
any in judgment and efficiency,

With only one man to deal
with, the buyers, whether pres
