Citrus Crop Will be Estimated Quan
titatively. The citrus crop will be estimated
quantitatively hereafter. This an
nouncement was made by Nat C.
Murray, statistician to the Bureau of
Crop Estimate, in a speech before the
Citrus Seminar at the University of
Florida recently. Growers will wel
come this change since they have nev
er had an unbiased estimate of the
number of boxes that the crop will
make. The Bureau has formerly
made its estimate in percentages.
Private concerns have estimated the
crop in boxes heretofore, but for the
benefit of certain individuals.
The first estimate will be published
in the November crop report. C. C.
Hare, field agent for the Bureau in
Florida, says that a special inquiry
will be sent to reporters within the
next few days. This will ask for the
percentages of bearing trees which
are oranges, grapefruit, limes and
lemons; what percentage of the pre
sent citrus crop will probably be or
anges, grapefruit, limes and lemons.
An estimatefor the average yield in
boxes per tree and per acre and the
percentage of a normal crop will be
required. The total number of bear
ing trees from one year up and the
percentages of the total which are or
anges and grapefruit , will be report
ed. The percentages 0f the various
varieties and seedlings will be given
so that an idea can be had of the most
Mr. Hare and Air. Murray made a
trip thru the south part of the state
during the last few days of the sem
inar. Growers welcomed the news
of the ouantative estimates and ex
pressed their willingness to cooper
ate with the bureatujn collecting the
information. Agricultural News Service.

Wickcrsham, of Russcllville, Pa., says:
''I was in a run-down, feeble condition
and had lost flesli. A neighbor asked
me to try Vinol, and after taking two
bottles my strength returned; I am
paining in flesh, it has built up my
health and I am feeling fine for a
woman of my age, so I get arotind and
do my housework."
The reason Vinol was so successful
in Mrs. Wickersliam's case was be
