The fact that the FLORIDA CIT RUS EXCHANGE with all of its packing houses in the state, will pos itively close the doors and refuse to receive ANY MORE MEMBER AFTER OCTOBER 1st, is a matter worth the solemn thought and con sideration of each citrus grower who has not either sold his fruit or placed it in the hands of the Exchange. It is a weir known fact proven last year, that fruit buyers are waiting until October 1st passes and they will then have out of their way their greatest competitor in the fruit busi ness, which is the EXCHANGE. When you can not come to the Ex change, the buyer can offer you HIS PRICE and you cannot help your self, you must either take what he I offers, handle your fruit vourself or let it rot on the trees. With the few days remaining why not come to the nearest house or to the office in Arcadia and place your fruit in the hands of the FLORIDA CITRUS EXCHANGE and net all that your frWt is worth and save the pro fits of the middleman, THE BUYER? , There are other reasons for com ing to the Exchange. You can buy your fertilizers, plows and any mater ial for developing your grove through the Supply Company and thus you become in this way not only a WHOLESALE SELLER BUT A WHOLESALE BUYER. REMEMBER AFTER OCTOBER 1st NO ONE THEN NOT IN THE EXCHANGE WILL BE ACCEPTED. WHAT ARE MOU GOING TO DO? ONLY A FEW MORE DAYS TO DE- SAVE YOURSELVUS AND adv. ALLEGED SHIN Kit CAUGHT.

I It is a well known fact that some very destructive diseases enter such plants as tomatoes, cabbage, egg plant, pepper, and a few others from the soil of the seedbed. E. F. De Busk, formerly a Florida county i agent but at present assistant boys' club agent, says it is extremely Im portant that the seedbed be thoroly sterlized before being planted, but that it should be ready for planting! before being sterilized. Pulverize j the sou to a depth ol about ten inches and then level down, leaving the bed with a smooth surface. There lire several methods of ster ilizing, but the most practical and applicable to the greatest number of conditions is by the use of formalde hyde. Use one pint of regular 40 percent commercial formaldehyde to 6 V4 gallons of water. Apply this solution to the seedbed with a sprink ler, so as to get a uniform distribu tion, using the diluted solution at thr rate of one gallon to two square feet of surface to be sterilized, The bed should then be blanketed with old sacks to prevent too rapid evaporation of moisture and conse quently the liberation of the formal dehyde gas before it lias thoroly pen e traced the soil. This treatment should be given two weeks before planting the seed. Two days after treatment remove the covering and Btir t'h'3 soil with a potato fork or some such implement to allow the poisonous gas to escape before the Seed are planted.

They lay silent for a while and watched the negro busily' engaged in the manufacture of "shine." They saw him run off three gallons and then fake it in a Jug to the creek nearby and place it in the water to cool. He then went back to make more of the "stuff that Inebriates." While the deputies were lying on the ground thinking how they could cantiire Tlittler without nrnhnhlv Carried hav(nf, t0 km nim a lame jersey I milch cow with a large .bell tied around her neck came within a few feet of them and was on her way to a small body of water to get a drink, which was within a few feet of the still. The officers crawled behind the cow and the noise from her bell kept Butler from hearing them. They got within 20 fevt, of the still and then waited for Butler to go back after his three-gallon jug of shine that he had placed in the water to cool. When he reached his hand down in the water for the Jug Gar ner covered him with a rifle and ordered him to hr.lt. Dishong then covered him with a shotgun and searched him. A .38 Smith and i Wesson revolver was found in his hip pocket. A 30-gallon can with the necessary coil and six quarts of ready-made booze were found inside the little vine-shaded room where the still was. Butler was all alone in the Isolated spot and no doubt felt per fectly secure. The negro was carried before Judge Walden and fined $500 tor ! tilling and J100 for carrying con- coaled weapons. Here's Something Worth Knowing. Listen to this, fishermen, There's a man residing in New York state who has discovered a reliable way to learn when the fish are biting, -without go ing to a stream and trying his luck. Here Is the formula : Catch and keep nlive a catfish. When you wish to go fishing, dig some Worms and throw them to the catfish. If he eats them, the lish will bite; but if he don't, you might as well stay at home. Exchange.
