BERRY CROP IS SHORT
Cultivated Product and Bad
Seasons Reduce Supply
Demand Also Incroisem Faster Than
Mippy—This Answer Applies
Particularly to Strawberries
—Culture Found Profitable.
Bangor. Me —Tears ago during the
summer season everybody in Bangor
and eastern Maine bad plenty of rasp
berries and blueberries at low prices.
Vow the berries are scarce and costly,
and people are wondering why.
Tbere are undoubtedly many M
rianatlccs and probably ail of them
would be true enough, but the real
rause of it all is that the demand for
ae fries has increased much faster
has the supply This answer applies
,e a general way to all berries but is
,*art:cuiar!y true erf strawberries.
The strawberry season is a long
me. beginning i-ariy in the spring and
.artlag until nearly the first of Aa
rsst This was not always the case,
aowerer. and the great length of sea
on has been brought about by care
nl cultivation which has been made
;-reliable by the ever-increasing de
mand for the product.
t nil! recent years the wild or field
strawberries were the only one* to be
round in the market in large quantl
■:e*. and even then the demand was
-.ot so large as to make it profitable
to pick and prej-are them for the mar
-et and those wbo did tbt work
»ere poorly paid for their labor. But
'be women who live in the berry dia
trict are workers and they were glad
enough to do ihe work though the
sage was small
The introduction of the large culti
vated berries from other parts tempted
the men o' the families to try culti
vated strawberries and to share with
the women the labor and the profit.
It was 'ound to be profitable culture,
both the demand and the supply in
creased and each year the selling
price was better than 'hat of the year
before, showing that the demand was
increasing faster than the supply.
Thus It has been up to the present
Time so far as straw berries are con
cerned. bat with raspberries blueber
ries and blackberries conditions have
beer, different. Blueberries have been
cultivated without trouble—in fact the
only trouble coic-»s from the rapid
spread of the bushes after they have
once been planed, and those who
have taken any pains with blackberry
cultivation realize that they are even
more profitable to raise than strawber
ries and Just as easy to market.
With raspberries and blueberries the
natural supply of wild berries has
been depended upon, and this changes
from year to year, the demand being
entirely dependent upon the supply
and the price being made by the
Raspberries have to be picked one
at a time, and it is a smart picker
who can pick twenty quarts per day.
if the supply be large and the berries
plentiful, and these, at an average
price of from 12 to 15 cents, would
give the picker from two to three dol
lars per day. But the supply of rasp
berries does not increase. It seems to
decrease Sheep are kept in the pas
tures where the berries used to grow,
and that spoils the “patch.” Then
there are a few fires, and locally the
supply has fallen off rapidly in the
last few years.
In the large raspberry fields the
supply Is large enough, but few peo
ple care to travel any great distance
to obtain raspberries as they do blue
berries. because of the work of pick
ing them, difficulty of transporting be
cause of the perishable nature of the
berries, and the fact of the season
coming so close to that of the blue
To Save Wild Flowers.
Vienna.—To prevent the devastation
of the beautiful valleys among the
mountains near Vienna, the city coun
cil has forbidden the sale In the
streets of the rarer wild flowers, such
as the wood anemone, wild cyclamen,
all kinds of gentian, narcissus, iris,
orchids, lilies and barfs tongue fern.
The order, citizens say. has come
none too soon.

Cost of Learning to Fly
Beginner Vay Achieve His Ambition
for $1,000 to $5,000— Biplane
London—Nowadays any ordinarily
active man. on deciding to learn to
fly. may achieve his ambition in
less than a month's time, provided he
is prepared to spend some money
if he is content to acquire the art of
airmanship without actually owning
an aeroplane of his own. it will cost
him $1,000 or slightly more. Should
he buy a machine his expenditure
may be $2,500 to $5,000. according to
the make and reputation of his air
But the pronouncement of experts
should be cited as regards the use
of monoplanes and biplanes from the
novice's point of view They say.
and experience certainly bears them
out. that the beginner learns to fly
more easily and more safely upon a
biplane than upon a monoplane The
reason Is that when a biplane begins
to lose Its balance In the air it heels
over far more slowly than a mono
plane. thereby giving the pilot more
time to alter his levers and bring It
again upon a level keel
The damage that can be done by a
bad descent was Indicated rather
quaintly by one airman of experi
ence. who contends that “you can
smash up a machine apparently quite
badly, and yet the repair will not be
more than ?50<i An awkward land
ing. causing the breaking of a skid
or several wooden stays, will not cost
more than $10 or $15."
To a beginner who Is not well ac
quainted with aeroplane motors the
services of a special mechanic will
be essentia! The salary of a relia
ble man—one who thoroughly un
derstands the delicate "timing up"
process necessary every now and
then with aeroplanes—ranges from
$15 to $35 a week Two or three odl
men are generally necessary at the
commencement of each flight to as
sist in maneuvering the aeroplane
illuminated Gun Shells.
London—A startling nvention has
just impressed the arm* and navy ex
perts that attended th» successful ex
periments off the Ish of Wight with
the device which illuminates sheila
used for night firing
To the base of the shell a tnetal
cylinder Is attached by a screw move
ment. and the ac of firing the gun
causes a powerful Uluminant to burst
Into flame. 'i his burns brightly
throughout the w hole of the trajectory
of the missile.
It is especially useful In testing the
effectiveness of range at night both
over sea and over land. It also shows
the course of the shell.
