This week both of the local packing houses engaged an increased force of expert packers and sizers, and over a thousand boxes a day are being packed, preparatory for shipment, as soon as cars can be se cured. Many of the orchards are packing their own apples either in boxes or in the fruit baskets, while a tremendous amount of fruit is being handled by the packing bouses.

The packing houses are spe cializing in fancy fruits and fancy packs. All apples for shipment are being wrapped for the sake of preser vation. BUSINESS IN KIMBERLY GOOD A casual observer, though he might be impressed with the hustle and evi dence of Kimberly business, would hardly dream of the immense amount of business that is being carried on by the local firms. Stores are taking in in cash over a thousand dollars in a single day, not speaking of the 1m 8e amouJlt of credu busines8 that jg being done. Farmers, merchants, and even the wage earners of Kimberly have few Cf jrnplaints to offer from lack of pros „„ rity for aU alike are enjoying the g ,. eater earnings in their respective hû tories. ' T he Advance recently made com parisons between the business of cer taln fading firms in Kimberly and , hose of one of Can yon county's most pTomine nt cities, and found that large a business was being conducted as in Kimberly as in Nampa, which is at present a flourishing town, that speaking of like enterprises. is BEET HAULING HEAVY Beet hauling this year has now reached its zenith, and a continual stream of wagons drawn by four horses is pouring Into the town every day. The heavy hauling is not the best thing for the roads in many re spects and certain of the traversed streets are literally ankle and knee deep with dust. It has not yet been estimated how many tons of beets are being unloaded at the Kimberly dump, but it averages in the neighborhood of several car loads per day.
