worms are the plutocrats in politics
and speculators in business. Shall we

strike from both sides. Let the farmers
exercise sufficient intelligence to strike
from their side; and political reformers
with their tireless intellects and brave
honest hearts, strike from the other

The above is a suggestive and limited
outline of a great plan for the better
conducting and managing of the busi

And it is now submitted to the farmers

hope that after due consideration they
will llnd It worthy ol their approval
and adoption, and finally of their re
commei.dation of the plan to their
brother farmers of the country.

New Fruit Drying Apparatus.
A new fruit dryincr apparatus has
been brought out in Victoria.Australia,
and publicly tested with apparently
satisfactory results. The novelty con
sists in the motion of heated air
through thu trays of fruit downward,
instead of upward, as in ordinary ma
chines. In the center of the appa
ratus are two cylinders, one incasing
the other, with a space of a few inches
between. I nto this space air from the
outside is admitted, and is warmed by
a fire at the bottom of the inner cylin
der. The heated air. at a temperature
oflMdeg. F. to 180 deg. F,, rises
through the space between the
two cylinders, and is drawn downward
through the trays of fruit Into the tire,
and thence up a chimney, the moisture
of the fruit being thus effectually di
posed of. The apparatus will dry 000
pounds of apples in a day, reducing the
weight to 100 pound. The drying
of each lot of apples placed tn the
trays usually occupies two hour, or a
little longer, as compared with four
hour required when uaiug one of the
