Helps the Fruit Gatherer.
The harvesting of the fruit of the
tree OJ' vine Is an exceedingly delicate
performance , for the reason that the
man engaged hI this occupation must
have several things on his mind at
the same time during the perform-
ance. Fll'st of all , he must have a
care 10 his own safety . as ho moves
among ho I loaded boughs of the tree ,
und next he must see that the fruit
IH not damaged In the process of picking -
Ing by rough handling / OJ' by failing
Fruit } which has been damaged In this
manner falls to command anything ;
like the price which may ue secured
for the more perfect specimens , when
It comes to disposing of the product
The little device which hall just
been brought out with the view of assisting . I
slstlng the fruit picker Is shown herewith .
with and any one who has had any
experience on the farm will readily
recognize the value of some such der
vice With this Ills Impossible 10 per.
mat the fruit 10 slip from one's hand ,
' : ; ; ' 1f ii.
and at the same time it is possible to
gather n greater amount or fruit than
could be. done otherwise
The apparatus Is exceedingly simple -
Ille and consists mainly of a pair of
blades working much like the familiar
grass shears , except that they are
smaller and more suited for cutting
a tough stem than the longer shears
would be. The outer edges of the
blades ' carry a bag which Is designed
to hanK below the metal , and as the
stem is severed the fruit will drop
Into the bag without any possibility of
damago. This enables the picking to
be conducted with one hand while the
other miry uo used for hanging on to
IImhs. and It wlll be readily seeD that
the field of labor or the fruit picker
is greatly extended.
