Such exceptional figures as those! growuif. The moderate prices paid by the mass of American coi.sume-s are- sufficiently high for that;; as in ' thousands of houses our people are : learning to prefer fruit, at such moderate prices, to many another attide of food which tfiey have heretofore demanded. The improvement of eanning pro cesses and the cheapening of ap paratus has also its effect in insur ing a market for fruits. Fruit farmers are not now depending on "canneries." Recent inventions en able them to do the- canning them selves. It would seenn, then,, that the grower need only see to it that his fruit is of good quality, attractively put up and intelligently marketed to be, certain oi a reasonable, re ward. But the day when neglect ed orchards and bushes could be depended to produce salable crops has passed. The grower of today must be equipped by study for bat tling with.insect pests; must be in sistent in cultivation and in the use of the sprayer and must, in short give as close attention to his trees as the stockman does to his cattle, doctor to his patients, or the mer chant to keeping his stock of goods fresh and in salable condition. -Market Grower.
