One of the unexpected happenings
at the State Press meeting at St Au
gustine was the conversion of Editor
Willis n Powell late owner of the 1
St Petersburg Independent I all
came about by a beautifully prepared
prayer which the rector of the Epis
copal church read on the evening
when the people of St Augustine gave
an entertainment for the delectation
of the visiting editors The incident
was the more remarkable because the
rector did an unusual thing read his
prayer something along spiritual lines
that Is seldom seen or heard these
das As intimated the prayer was
a very beautiful and touching one the
sentiments were fine and noble and
the diction employed to express the
heartfelt thoughts of Its autnor was
Indeed Addisonian Now Powell has
roamed the world over seen all peo
po of the earth and experienced all
climes and ft remained for him to visit
the oldest city or the American con
tinent and of these United States and
have his heart touched by the simple
but touching and appealing words of
a plain every day Episcopal rector
Now this evidence was equally start
ing to the association for I was al
of Powells telling As no one had
suspected up to that hour that Powell
had experienced a change of heart
but that he had hiS own words are in
evidence by getting up In open session
and requesting that the prayer as read
be made a part of the proceedings of
the meeting of the Press Association
and the same be embodied in the of
ficial published report In making
this modest request Mr Powell said
he had never heard a prayer that so
touched him as that one did He had
always believed in the application of
the sentiments expressed in it name
ly that the power of the press should
never be abused that its primal
thought and purpose was to clothe the
misdeeds of the world with a mantle
of charity to speak ill of or misrep
resent on one if you couldnt say a
gOod word of a person to remain sil
ent but to push and smile that oth
ers might be Induced to do the same
and was free to confess that prayer
had fully converted him and so im
pressed was he with I he asked for
its publication so he could always
have I with him as a memorial of the
last meeting he ever expected to be
present with the state association as
his face would shortly be set toward
the Golden Horn where In a little
while he would again take up the bur
dens and pleasures of journalism and
speed his declining days in the Occi
dent free from the cares and vexations
tions incident to the fact that his for
tune he had made in the newspaper
business at St Petersburg pleasantly
assured him The editor of the Star
noting the state of mind and heart ot
Powell a prime favorite with every
member of the association moved and
it was seconded that the association
have printed in the highest type of i
the art preservative of all arts the I
prayer and the same be sent to Mr
Powell in his Pacific Coast home with
the best wishes of the association The
Incjden was so unique and Impressive
and withal so rare in its happening
that It marks an epoch in the history
of association Among the pleas
ures of the meeting of the association
was the greeting of Mr Edgar the fa
mous Short Talks man of the TU
Jacksonville No one column of the
paper is more eagerly scanned each
day than is that one devoted by Mr
Edgar to Short Talks In which he
invariably has some kindly but point
ed paragraph referring to an Item
round in the state press Mr Edgars
words are not only kindly but his
spirit is of the broad and tolerant
kind without discrimination or bias
and when he dissents from opinions
expressed he does i in a spirit and
tone that leaves the effect of a ben
ediction spoken Mr Edgar was call
ed on for a speech but said his health
had not been of the best and desired
to be excused but the urgency with
which the members insisted he should
talk brought forth remarks along
lines already indicated that were In
deed cheerful and helpful to every
newspaper man present By the way
the Star heard with sincere regret
that Mr Edgar was taken suddenly
ill while in St Augustine and had to
be taken to Jacksonville We trust
for the genial and kindly gentleman a
speedy recovery Another person we
were deeply Interested In but only
knew by reputation was W Livingston
Larnerd the versatile writer on the St
Augustine Record He is equally at
home In prose or poetry and his sev
eral columns a day In that excellent
publication are replete with wit
humor and wisdom and
are a delight
and inspiration to all who peruse
them The amusing part of the Lam
erd personality was his age We had
always imagined him a venerable sear
and philosopher with plentiful streaks
of the youthful spirit which resides in
writers of good appetite and good di
gestion and judge of our surprise
when he was introduced at the editors
banquet as the goungcst man of the
Faber pushers who looked more like
twenty than eighty Ere we sit down
a word about Harry Brown the able
editor and manager of the St Augus
tine Record who certainly did him
Dlf proud In his efforts to make the
meeting a success in ever particular
and what he did for the boys and girls
of the state press was 0 plenty In
seeing that their every want was sup
plied and every hour In their visiting
home moments of ethical and social
delight May he ever be the genial
generous and kindly and knightly Har
ry Brown he has shown himself to be
and his shadow never grow less for
t the memory halls of the editors
present he will truly occupy a niche
of fame and a sweet remembrance
that time will not efface Heres to

a solution a third or more stronger to

at all during the winter months I
should be used any time from the

growers will spray their trees at least
three times during the seven months
that they will put their trees beyond
any possible harm of the ravages of

Remarkable Difference In Appearance
of Packagas S Compare with
Those from California
While in Baltimore recently official
business took Trie through the whole
saling district ot this distributing
center of a large section of the United
States My attention was attracted to
a large shipment of Florida oranges
and grapefruit standing near a like
shipment recently received from California
forum and the remarkable difference
In the of the
i appearance packages
from the two states
I spent nearly two hours among the
commission merchants who deal In
produce and who take a great deal of
the fruits and vegetables of Florida a
well a California fruit This was
during the last week in February and
on that day California oranges were
selling fat In advance of Florida stock
and with a much better demand In
discussing the various reasons for
I this difference In the remarkable
range of prices the commission mer
chants appeared deeply Interested and
I Is evIdent tat most of them had
been making a rultless effort to In
duce more care In packing selecting
and shipping on the part of the Florida
producer I was the general opinion
that the Florida product was in every
way the equal of that of California
wIt the exception of carrying quail
ties and that Florida oranges would
reach the California standard of
prices If the proper care and a higher
standard of business proficiency was
I found that the first objection in a
majority of the character
majoriy cases was charcter
of the package While most ot us
from Florida claim that the Florida
orange package Is In every way an
Improvement on the California crate
like box commission men claim that
the California package Is superior In
many ways a few of which are given
1 The open package permits of a
better view of the fruit
2 I is more pliable and the top
pieces not being nailed to the center
piece permits of a bulging allowing
free circulation and preventing he
bruising of the fruit
3 Tl ere Is a better circulation of
air and a consequent better insurance
against rotting
There was nQtf commission tman
who did not prefer the California
package and some of them were em
phatic In their contention that the
ForId orange box should be remod
eled This they claim could easily
be done by cutting the veneered side
pieces Into three parts and nailing
separately with at least an Inch al
lowance for air I was also contend
ed that the top pieces should not be
nailed to the center But i this were
done some questioned the ability of
a package thus constructed to with
stand the severe handling which Flor
ida produce of all kinds receive
While the California fruit travels a
greater distance to compete with the
Florida fruit in the Eastern markets
it is all shipped carloadlots and is
never rehandlea a Is frequently the
case with the Florida fruit and es
pecially that which Is sent north by
water transportation
Carrying Qualities of Florida Fruit
That the Florida orange Inferior
to the California fruit as to carrying
qualities there is no question This
condition has been brought about
through years of careful study In Cal
IfornIa and applying the needed rem
edies In the growing of the fruit In
California the orange growers study
ever condition referring to cultiva
tion and scientific methods are more
generally applied than in Florida
This has resulted in perfecting the
carrying qualities of the fruit
The Lack ef Organization
Commission merchants tell me that
In California the fruit growers sys
tem of organization ISM perfect and
as general as I is possible to make i
and that their dealing with the California
fornia fruit growers is mainly
through this organization This gives
every grower an equal showing for
the fruit Is graded In California and
Is not subject to the criticism of the
nan in the East A shipment of Flor
ida fruit from the same grove packed
In the same packing house by the
same methods and In every way uni
form may be consigned to two differ
ent commission houses and retums of
their sales may show that the two
commission merchants differ a to
grade and price Not so with Califor
nia fruit where the pool system Is
adhered t and where every grower Is
exactly on the same footing Com
mission men of Baltimore claim that
they see a decided advantage in this
perfect organization for the grower
and themselves favor It But in this
connection the commission men of
Baltimore have seriously neglected
their own interests In precisely the
same way There Is no organization
among tho commission merchants of
Baltimore and no united effort ij be
ing put forth to Improve the trade
from their standpoint or from the
standpoint of the shipper and to the
honest commission merchant the In
terests of the shipper and the com
mission merchant are Identical There
Is a socalled organization but it
i deals only In matters of credit and
I trade protection within the immediate
Methods ef Packing
Commission merchants are loud In
thei condemnation of the loose meth
od employed by the Florida shippers
in the packing of fruit One of the
largest produce merchants said
This matter of packing fruit works
such great evil to the producer that
It is a serious question in disposing of
fruit and frequently places the com
mission man at a disadvantage I <
can show you fruit from ten different
growers in Florida and I will venture
the statement now that every pack
age is faulty as to the pac g and
especially as to sizes ThesFIOrIda
fruit grower will pack fruit of several
sizes in one box and frequently the
box 1 not complete at times at least
five oranges being lacking to mae a
full box The retailer knows this and
l I I Florida oranges he buys he in
sists reduction In the
sIst upon a reducton te major
Ity of cases no matter where the fruit
comes from and how carefully Is
packed the fact that It is from F
Ida Is sufficient to cause the retailer
to seek this allowance Another thins
is careless handling In the pkclclRg
house Some of the fruit when I
reaches here appears to have been
thrown from one end or the packing
house to the other Growers cannot
be too careful In handling the Florida
orange I know of cases and have
seen them with my own eyes where
the sizer used permitted it drop t > r
several feet You cannot expect fruit
thus handled to carry 5 >
This commission merchant opened
five boxes of Florida oranges and with v
the exception of one box shipped by xtV
the Ronnoc grove of New Smyrna all ii
of them were faulty and exceedingly
so The grove mentioned had quite
a large shipment of fruit on the Bal
tlmore market and the fact was noted
that the appearance of the brand
printed on the package was worth
considerable The commission mer >
chant states that the care exercised
by this gore has created a demand j
for that particular brand of fruit and
ha been worth several hundred dol
lars to theown this season r
Shipment of Green Fruit o
Commission men claim that the
shipment of green fruit works a great
injury on the Florida industry I Is 3
claimed however that the FIorhIa
fruit does not color as earlyas
California fruit and than even rtl >
rind be green the Inside is of a rlc 1m
color and mature This haoldentlyh
led a great many to send In their f ruitj
too green and too early and It Is Jnt > > f

shipment of this character wilt t ct t >
the Florida fruit for the entire i69
son One commission merchant re i
ferred to a customer who purchased i
Florida fruits from him for years arid I
who has been buying only California
fruit this season because he was bit
by green fruit early In the year One
merchant claimed that three carloads
of green fruit diverted from Balti
more to Pittsburg early in the scao i
practically ruined the prospects for
Florida fruit in that city for theXC
tire season There appears to hiI l
been more green fruit shipped hls
season than ever before s
The fact that one shipper may
seriously cripple an entire Industry by
placing green fruit on theanarket was
the subject for general discussion S
among the commission merchants of
Baltimore They claim that this has
teen done and that the legislature of j
the state should not permit a few
growers of fruit to do their neighbors
so grievous an injury
Other Florida Produce t
On the day I visited Baltimore there
were shipments of lettuce from
Gainesville and Sanford a few Flor
Ida beans and tomatoes < < In referring t
to the packing of these vegetables the
suggestion was made that the square
crate for lettuce was muchbetter r
than the basket and that I was only
a question of time wheh dealer
In the Eastern markets would insist
upon the elimination of the haSket ta
The method or shipping and pack
ing in cars was discussed Commls 5
sion mel claim that the only correct
way to pack oranges In 3 c tlst
stand the boxes on end and that when
this Is not done the difference In Ine
quality of the fruit when It reaches i
the market Is readily noted I Is for 3
this reason that the commission men
are advising all rail shipments a
much as it Is to prevent rehandllng < x
There Is considerable Interest In
this question of organization marii
tested at the marketing center And
the commission men will welcome 3
good and effective organization In
S Florida But to be effective that or r
gonlzatlon must be general and there
are questions which may enter in a c 9
way to justify legislative action
The most striking result of my In
quiries was to impress me with the i 1
fact that there are a great many i
growers In Florida who are fast driv i
ing the Florida orange from the mar S
ket and costing their stae many bun
lun tf
dred thousand dollars annually Per t
haps the only way to reach this class > i
would be by effectively applying the i
principle that a man has no right to j
make use of hIs property In a way c
that I work Injury to his neIghbors
I would appear that this is the only
remedy which will eliminate green <
fruit from the market TimesUniong J
