Mother's Birthday.
Salt Lake Telegrams: In a Kansas
rural school a few days ago the
teacher—a young man just out of
normal school—asked his pupils, one
by one, to tell what each believed to
be the greatest day in the year.
The answers were piped up
promptly, "Washington's birthday,"
"Christmas," "The Fourth of July,"
"Thanksgiving,", and so on.
"But I'm afraid you're all wrong,"
said the youthful instructor. "The
greatest of all days in the J"ear is
mother's birthday."
We are sorry we haven't a chance
here to tell just how much we think
of that young man. Suffice it, such
teachers are the crying need, not of
our rural schools, hut of our high
brow city institutions of learning.
For if those youngsters learn no
more than what mother really means,
they will not have trudged miles to
the little frame school house for

Wholesale Fruit Men of the State De
cide on Basis on Which
Commodities Shall
Be 8old.
This Will Go on All Packages Except
Original Unbroken Ones Which
Are Shipped In Frogi
Other States.
Wholesale fruit jobbers of Iowa at
a conference last week, reached an
agreement, through a committee, with
the state dairy and food commission,
by which commodities shall be sold
by net weight. The net weight shall
be placed on all packages except orig
inal unbroken packages shipped in
from other states, says the Des
Moines Register and Leader.
The committee representing the
Iowa Fruit Jobbers' association at the
conference was composed of George
G-rupe, Cedar Rapids J. D. Nichols,
Mason City P. E. Veitch, DAvenport
J. W. Hay, Dubuque: J. C. Davidson,
Des Moines. The state dairy and food
department was- represented by W. B.
Barney, commissioner B. C. Iliff,
deputy, and Edward C. Lytton, in
spector of weights and measures.
The state department made a rul
ing recently that the net weight
should be placed on all packages. The
fruit jobbers explained that this
would add greatly to the cost of do
ing business. They asked that the
department be content if all commod
ities are sold by net weight, said
weight to be .placed on the invoice.
The state officials agreed to this ar
rangement. The reply of the depart
ment to the jobbers follows:
"The department has reconsidered
the matter of declaration of net
weight on wholesale packages of pro
duce such as potatoes, onions, etc.,
when bought and sold in original un
broken packages packed in other
"For the present we are of the
opinion that the purpose of the
weight and measure law is served if
these commodities are sold by net
weight and the information as to net
weight be supplied on the invoice to
the purchaser on or before the re
ceipt of goods.
Average Net Weight.
"The department is of the opinion
that the net weight of produce such
as onions, cabbage, sweet. potatoes,
tomatoes, pears, peaches, apples, eta,
shipped in regulation crates, hampers
or barrels can be ascertained with
sufficient accuracy by obtaining tlrs
gross and tare weight of from eight
to ten representative packages. The
average net wieight so obtained to be
used for the pupose of declaring the
average net 'weight of the other pack
ages of the same class received in
the shipment.
"As to the question of net weight
on bananas-, the department is of the
opinion that this net weight can be
determined and placed on the pack
age without undue inconvenience."
