Field and Farm.
While the comnilssirn men are al
ways accused of double dealing In
handling Colorado products no one
outside the trade can imagine the
trouble every bouse has In securing
an Honest pack from the growers.
We were talking the other day with a
prominent commission merchant
when by way of illustration he unfold
ed a few of his troubles. He said
"Much of the fruit handled by our
house last fall was manifested to us
as fancy. Many of these cars were
rejected two, tbiee and even four
times and were finally sold by our
men at what they would bring al
though at serious loss, not only to
tne snippers but to oursslves as well.
as it is Impossible to handle these
cars for the small commission which
we get. We sent some apples to Cali
foruia and with the execution of one
car, they were all refused. One of
the firm went out to dispose of these
apples, and the sales were made to
the very best advantage. He reported
that in every case there were good
grounds for refusal or complaint.
"it was my misfortune to have to
dispose of a certain car load the last
of February that had been stored in
St. Louis. It was supposed to con
tain all faucy fruit, excepting eighty
Doxes or sso. 'i lien Davis. They were
rted Genetons. Black Twigs. Ben
Davis and Ureenings. The market
was in good conditiou Receipts were
very light from the east and the price
tor fancy apples was ruling at from
$1.20 to $1.40 a box. I had succeeded
in getting four of the largest and best
fruit men to go down to look at these
apples In examining the fruit, they
round the pack absolutely irregular,
running from culls No 2, to faucy,
mis-marked and some of the fruit
wilted, evidently caused by being
frozen or frosted on trees before picking.
"They would not consider the car
at the price which I had quoted them
nor would any of tbem even make an
offer of freight and refrigerator
charges. I hud this car of apples
drayed up town, repacked and de
cided to sell it to best advantage, let
ting tbo desirable varieties like the
Oeuetons go first. Four men weie in
the market for good Genetons at $1.40
a box. They came back and looked
at the fruit after it was repacked, and

eight or ten boxes, turned away in

to look at or buy culls. As it was im
possible to sell them at any price to
the legitimate trade, the only thnig
left to do with these apples was to put
them through the auction, which was
attended by about one hundred Ital
ians or peddlers. The car sold for

packing, drayage, freight, storage and

one-fourth of my expenses, tho net re

must say that iu my experience ol
nearly thirty years iu handling and
selling fruit, this car of apples was
the hardest proposition to tell or
lace of any oar of fruit I ever hand
led and the principal reason for it
was the irregular pack, mi -marks and
fruit not up to grade Part of this
fruit was No. 1. tepecially the Black

the reason that the fruit was not regu

open up every box and examine it
through to the bottom."
Alfalfa Experiments.
Corvallis Times.
Alfalfa on the Oregon agricultural
college farm made a yield of green
feed this season, (hat measured in
curod weight would have made six aud
one-hblf tons of hay per acre. It is
yield strikingly at variance with
the graiu crop, because., it is 50 tier
cent larger than any fbrmei crop, all
in spite of bugs 'add the drouth con
ditions of the late season. It inspires
wonder that more farmers do not grow
alfalfa, since this college alfafa crop
was produced on land no better than
tho ordinary wheat laud, without a
lckle's wortn of artificial fertilizer.
and under circumstances applicable

held Friday afternoon at the cheese
factory. For some time it has been
discussed by the directors of the fao

was had, but when the ballots were
counted the proposition was carried.
