hiiriel, Upon removing the lid from
the fiiee em! of the ban el ami examin
ing the f.ieo layer we weio not able to
l'lnl an absolutely perfect iipplo to
that lavr. They ranged in size from
two anil one-fourth Inch in diameter
toll inches and from one-fourth color
to full color. On removing the face
layer we found apple's fiout oiiu ami
throe-fourths inches in diameter to
three Inches in diameter, apples with
worm holes ill the end, worm holos on
the hide and several lot leu specked
ones, apples' with scatcoly any color
and very few that would grade strictly
No. I'm if standard pack was used.
These apples were sold to the grocer
as No. 1 apples and were grown and
packed tv one of our largo orohardUts
of the stato Is it any wouder'that
people are not eating the apples that
they did in years gone by? I don't
think that every No. 1 barrel that goes
out f i oin Nebraska is this kind because
the buyers of the east want our apples
and will pay 11 premium to get the
better grades They know that Nc,
b.iaska apples propel ly packed and
graded will keep better in st irage and
hare a better ibtvor and appeal auce
than apples grown in any other scut
Ion. Our own consumers aie not
acquainted with this fact because they
have not had the opportunity to decide
for themselves. Our growers complain
that the home dealer won't pay ns
much as the eastern buyer and yet our
consumers hae to eat western box
apples or New York apples and pay a
high price for them or culls taken
from our better grades that are ship
ped out of the state. Can you blame
the home dealer from turning down
tho home grown apple and buying a
box apple when ho knows that every
apple iu that box is the same us every
other apple and he can figure exactly
what he can sell the apples for ami his
profit on them. ' Can ho do that with
the average Nebraska growers pack?
The Nebraska grower is standing in
his own light when he puts up a pack
of apples and calls them first grade
and they contain seconds and third
grade apples In the same barrel. Bet
ter to standardize the pack and then
hew strictly to the lino and when your
name goes on & barrel and you call it
No. 1 seo to it that It is strictly that.
How do you expect a good reputation
for your fruit and to get the top prices
that Nebraska fruit Is entitled to when
It Is properly graded and packed? The
remedies that must bo used are first
the proper up-to-date methods in tbo
care of your orchard and crop, then in
the proper grading and packing of
that crop In best manner possible put
ting up only the choicest grades In
barrels or boxos and then using tho
other grades In some by product such
as cider, canned or evaporated apples.
Not all our orchardist are guilty of
putting up such a pack as I found at
the grocers but we all neod to take
heed to our ways and seo 'that no fault
can be found with our packing and
then Nebraska apples will fee put in a
class by themselves as the apples that
have no peer in the consumer's home
in Nebraska. Let's all work together
to Improve the pack that goes out from
our orchards and help sustain the fact
that Nebraska produces the best flavor
ed, best keeping and most uniform

But cut glass is- bought mainly
for its beauty anyway and
you can't get beauty without
paying for it.
But that needn't frighten any

To tell you that ours is moder
ately priced, doesn't explain
anything for you.
To tell you that we have just

Whit Three Cents Did
A little boy about six years old rush
ed luto a store iu Trenton and asked
if they kept those stamps that had the
picture of Santa Claus on The clerk
said: "Yes, my boy, we do; how many
would you like to have?" Tho little
boy looked earnestly luto tho clerk's
face and asked: "How much are
they?" The clerk answered that they
were only a cent apiece. The child
looked joyfully around and said, "I
