FROBT HITS ORANGE CROP
Cold Did Some Service In Checking
Growth of Large Fruit.
Los Angeles, Jan. 17. This year's
ornngo crop has been damaged approx
imately $1,000,000 by tho heavy frosts
of the last ten dnys, according to es
timates made by reliable growers.
Some believe this amount also will
cover nursery stock and tho coming
year's crop, but others flguro the total
to be soveral millions.
Several leading growers roako tho
surprising statement that tho cold
weather brought the more benefit
than harm. Navel oranges wcjre un
usually large just before uio frost and
began to color. The frosty weather
came just In time to check tho growth
and hold them to normal size. There
is a discount of 50 cents a box on
"jumbo" fruit, hence tho advantage.

"DROME" IS OUR NEWEST WORD
Professor Bell Declares That Is Way
to Say a Man Flies.
New York, Jan. 17. Professor Alex
ander Graham Deli, the inventor, has
coined a new word. "In Canada," ho
said, "we speak of a man 'droming'
from one point to another. The word
aerodrome originated with a professor
of Greek at Johns Hopkins university,
and it means an air runner. We call
our machines 'dromes' much simpler
and moro correct, too, than aeroplane.
For the fore and aft curves in the
aerodromes of today make 'aeroplane'
a misnomer. I think we shall all
come to calling them 'dromes.' "
