At many of these fruit is exhibited Representative? from the College of Agriculture are irequently asked to act as judges at these shows, and almost invariably they report that splendid fruit was shown, but much of it was so poorly selected or arranged that it didn’t do justioe to the grower and failed to win the prizes it otherwise would. Exhibit spoiled by the large apple. In order to know how to select frui it is necessary to know how the judg< Is going to look at .'t, w hat pointB he h going to observe particularly, and t< what character he will give the great est weight. First of all, if he is a goot judge, he will examine the five applei on a plate and decide whether thej represent the correct form for the va riety. For example, the Ben Da vis sometimes produces rather flai apples, but a typical Ben Mavis it about as long as it is wide, and ii somewhat conic in shape. A plate ol flat Ben Davis mipht be just as goot! apples as any other, but would fail tc win a prize becr.use they were off form. Size is usually nt xt considered. Tht mistake exhibitors frequently make if to show their very largest specimens no matter if they are so overgrown that they are ribbed, when they ought to be smooth, or lopsided, when the> should be erect. Large apples art good exhibition material only when they are of correct form and well col ored. Of more Importance than size if the color. A red apple can' not be too highly colored, but with green apples, like the Mann, Ithode Islam! Greening and others, a heavy blush if undesirable. The russet apples should ) PREPARE F ENTERED AT SNOW tempt to Improve on l^ure’s ng Often Loses the^ * Exhibitor \ be truly russet In colqr, and yellow . Soma apples are coi a waxy bloom which gives very rich, color. This bj much a part of the fruit and should not be rubb* , mistaken effort to beaui product by polishing. One of the most important requisites for a good plate of fruit is uniformity. Each apple should look as nearly like , every ether apple on the plate ns is I I'ossible. This means not only that all ! should be of the same sire, but of the | same shape and color. A man may , have one large, well formed, richly-col ored specimen, uud br uses this to bol ster up a plate of four fair-colored, mc 1 dium-sized fruits. It is u serious mis* ) take. The plate should be made uni* ! form, even though two or three excep I tionally fine specimens have to be left out. A uniform well selected plate. Every one knows that blemishes ; should have no place on exhibition fruit, but sometimes the question ! arises as to what constitutes n blem ish. Unquestionably rotten spots, the j black marks of sooty blotch and apple j scab, worm holes. San Jose scale . marks, and the like, are blemishes, but what about broken stems, finger prints, and russet spots on apples that should not be russeted? These and other* arb blemishes and will detract from the exhibit. In general, be sure the fruit is cor rectly named. Is of the proper form Tor the variety, is somewhat above me dium size, well-colored, and, above, all, “uniform In size, shape and color and free from blemishes." W. H. ALDERMAN, College of Agriculture, West Virginia University. FARMERS SHOULD RAISE MORE HOGS There are 328,188 hogs in West Vi ginia, and by comparing this numbt with the number of people who inhab the state, which is 1,221,119, we find a average of one hog to every 3.72 pe sons. This ratio does not seem so ii congruous until we consider the clat of pcople#of which the population < this Btate'is composed. This being mining state, naturally a large propo tion of the people are foreigners, an we find that the foreign people ar greateir'meat eater than the America people. A good brood sow. The present price of hogs is fioi 11 to 14 cent* per pound dressed, c to 9% cents live weight. This I far above the prtce quoted by the vi rious live stock markets, and as Ion as these conditions exist, the peopl of this state should be able to find a exceptionally good market for all th hog« they are able to raise. Why, then, when the demand fc pork In this state is so great, an when there also exists a relative hlg price for farm products, does the pr< gresslve farmer not turn his thought and interests to the production t more hogs on his farm? The success or failure of this undei taking would depend upon the kin ntid quality of hog the farmer usei Jftfcnathe breeder’s standpoint, the ho |H|^ vigorous and prolific, .m ,n jj^^$|||H'''P‘ 1 <'■>'! ■ ••nr iioir.fi) lit*- r They *hnuid alg pvTui.r.ls re r-1 flows of the desired type to be used t in the breeding herd may be too ex It i pensive or it may be impossible to buy n suitable sows.
