We overheard a gentleman say
that a little work on the part of
our people would result in a
market for a considerable portion
of our peach crop which at the
present time goes to waste. He
suggests that it would be well to
pack the fruit which is generally
considered too ripe and ship to
nearby towns. One firm he men
tioned located in Cripple Creek
would take several hundred
boxes a day of such fruit as it is
really in more demand than the
ordinary pack which is not in
perfect condition for several days
after it has been packed. It would
seem that this is a good sug
gestion and one which would re
sult in considerable good to our
growers. The most of our fruit
is packed too early for the con
sumption of the local towns
throughout the state.
Anyone wishing the latest
things in mice exterminators will
do welt to call on John Bruce.
Mr. Bruce fixed up a scheme for
us whereby he guaranteed to rid
the building of mice. He used a
hard boiled egg, a piece of roasted
steak and corn meal. This he
put in a pan and set in the middle
of another pan the bottom of
which was covered with a lye
paste. The theory is that the
mice will get into the lye while
trying after the table d’hote and
become so disgusted with the
duplicity of man that they will
leave the building. However,
when Mr. Bruce had gone we in
spected the trap and the meal he
had prepared looked so tempting
we ate it ourselves. And that’s a
good joke on the mice.
