In buying ' apples ono generally
selects fall pippins, greening or Bald
wins to suit, whereas in purchasing
oranges tho brand of "Florida" is
sufficient Consumers will soon find
out, if they have not already, that tho
variety in oranges Is greater than in
apples, and learn to select Homoassa,
Nonpareil, swoet Seville, Indian river,
Tangerine or Satsuma as readily as
, thoy now do various apples.
J hero is ono trade-mark on many
Florida oranges that can not bo coun
terfeited; when thn peel is discolored
by what is known as "rust," you may
know tho fruit was grown in tho land
of flowers. So far from this being a
drawback except for looks, this rust
is a positivo advantage. Russets aro
invariably solid, sweet and juicy; tho
tiny insoct that caused the discolored
peel thereby hermetically seals the
pores, confining tho juices that other
wise would evaporate; yet you may
buy russets for about $1 per box
cheaper than briehts. So much for
J "looks" or tho whims of taste. Few
oranges are now marketed as carclossly

dumped into a 1kx. Instead, each box

"There is fino fun over in tho
Pahranagat valley in Nevada now,"
said P. K. Morriweather. a bronzed
ranchman of tho Pahranagat. Mr.
Merriwcather has for a dozen years
been engaged in the cattle business in
tho valley. Ho is something of a
sportsman, too, and hunts a day or so
almost every week throughout tho
"I haven't been hunting a great deal,
though, lately," ho said. "It's too much
fun watchiag tho coyotes round up the
jack-rabbits. It makes tho sheepmen
mad, but it don't bother mo any.
Thoy hate to see tho coyotes. They
are death on sheep, and rip them up
whenever thoy get a cbanco. But this
is not ofton now sinco tho sheep-owners
keep so close a watch on them.
Consequently, the coyotes havo a hard
timo of it for something to eat, and
thoy aro at their old tricks of going
after tho rabbits.
"Tho wolves come down in packs of
eight or ten usually and rustle around
in tho sagebrush in the enow till they
scare up some of thoir long-cared

est chase you ever set your eyes on.
These jacks run like a streak of
greased lightning, and the coyotes are
no slouches, either. But thry can't
keep pace with the rabbits.
"So the way they do it i for one wolf
to run as far and as fast as ho can, and
then another chip in and runs until
he ia out of breath, when a third re
lieves him. and so on. until tho rabbit
is completely blown, and his arch
enemy nabs him up. All tho others
come up then and they have a feed,
and this is the way they do till they
get all they want.
"In general about three wolves aro
enough to run a jack-rabbit down, but
sometimes it takes four, and now and
then you will find a jack-rabbit rrith

it will take fivo coyotes to get away
