Charles Holmes was also ab sent. ne gave -is excuse that he could not get all the burnt cork oft his face in time to come to the meet ing as he said he had a round or two with one of our colored citizens, which turned out to be one of our leading white citizens, with a lot of burnt cork on his face and before he could discover his error, about half came off on him, as he tried to make his colored friend obey the law, but could not, but vows he will “never again” be a police officer on April 1. Both of the above gentlemen will have to be fined at our next meeting or give better accounts of themselves. It was decided at our last meeting to give a play in the near future and the cast of characters will be given In our next issue, as we have so far only a few volunteers. We have some good actors, who are members of the c.ub and we think we will have no trouble in producing some good playa with a lot of fine specialties in be tween acts; one that will draw a good crowd and give us a little money to work on in the future. All applications for membership, were laid over for one week as only a few members were present, aa April 1st, was a very busy day for most of the boys.

Here’* a telegram: At National Apple Show iuat closed five hundred dollar carload premium waa awarded a car ot Black Ben apples frown on one hundred sixty Stark Trees at Fruits, Colorado. (Sifned) Dr. S. T. Green, President Fruita Chamber of Commerce. Have you Black Ben in your orchard? If not get it in this spring—plant largely of it. Aa a commercial sort it is unsur passed, a sure, regular producer of handsome profits. It sold this year at the vVenatchee Wash., Fruit-Grower’s Ass'n sale, at the same price as Jonathan—$2.00 per box, while Ben Davis brought only $1.40, Gano $1.50 and Mo. Pippin $1.50. You positively cannot make a mistake on Black Ben—plant it largely—you'll never regret it. As a filler for Spitzenburg, Newtown, Jonathan, Delicious, etc., it is excellent. Our stock of Black Ben is immense—finer trees never grew. Get your order in early. From a commercial standpoint 1 fully and heartily recommeod Delicious. Black Ben and Stayman Winesap as three of the finest varieties for commercial orchard planting. The eating qualities of Delicious and Stayman Winesap are superior to any other table apple while Black Ben ia the apple for the masses. The keeping Sualitiea of all three varieties are excellent. I came to the United tates Land and Irrigation Exposition at the Coliseum, Chicago, with the Wenatchee Commercial Club Exhibit and have told a number of boxes of Stark Delicious at $10.00 per box. This, I think, speaks well for them.—C. W. Wilmeroth, Wenatchee, Wash. Note: Mr. Wilmeroth spent 32 years on South Water St., Chicago ea an apple commission man. He probably is the beat posted apple* man in the country.—Stark Bro'a. Stark Early Elberta A great peach for we«tem growers. Originated in Utah. A yellow free-stone ripening with Carmen but hardier and better than Elberta and a better shipper. Do what the “Peach King" ia doing—plant it commercially thi* spring. When they fruit you will want more. Stark Early Elberta will increasa peach-orchard profits where ever planted. I believe Stark Eariy Elberta ia one ol tbe beat varieties introduced since the first Elberta came. It will no doubt play an important put in Mctiooa such we have here where growers do not will too many varieties but must have early and lata kinds. In Early Elberta one baa all tbe good qualities ol Elberta and the nddUional batata of early ripening.—E. H. Favor, Horticulturist, Davis County, Utah.
