Ask Women to Preserve
Fruits and Vegetables
"Can 'lots of vegetables and fruit."
is the advice of At King, manager of
Hayden Brothers' grocery depart
ment, is going to throw out to the
people this summer.
'That will be the only way to bust
the trust," said King. "Vegetables
will be fairlv cheap here after a while
when they begin to come in in large
quantities, and people wi'' be able to
preserve them much cheaper than
they can buy them in cans.
.there is every indication now that
even the cheanest canned com. peas
and beans will be 20 and 25 cents a
can next fall. It doesn't cost people
much to put these things up them
selves. Then, as for fruits, that will
take sugar, of course, but housewives
can make good money canning their
own fruit even with sugar 10 cents a
pound, when canned fruit held up
to such prices vnow being asked and
will be asked in the fall and winter.
I m going to' make a regular campaign
along that line this summer."

HE KILLS TOBACCO WOEMS
By A. R. GROH.
John C. Canning, 4121 South Twenty-first
street, writes me thus:
Dear Sir: May I aak what waa your aim

(How pleasant, friends, to have
reached such heights that the young
seek to follow in your footsteps!)
' Listen, John, and I will tell you
the secret of greatness. When I was
a small boy I longed to become a lo
comotive engineer. I longed to sit at
the throttle of a great engine flying
through the country, across bridges
and through tunnels. Yes, that was
While waiting to get old enough to
take a position as engineer I sold pa
pers, sometimes making 10 or 15 cents
a day. One summer, I remember, I
engaged in the lawn mowing indus
try. My sole implement was a sickle,
and a dull one at that. One morning
when business was very dull I met
up with a woman financier whose yard
comprised about an acre. It was full
of tall, wiry grass. I was it. great
need of cash and she succeeded in
getting my preliminary price of 50
cents for the job down to 15 cent3.
Fifteen Cents a Lot.
I set to work hopefully, thinking of
all I could buy with 15 cents. (In
those days 15 cents would purchase a
whole dozen of delicious cream puffs
or' three big ice cream sodas or a
whole pound of jelly beans).
So I worked, dreaming of good
things. But soon my muscles began
to ache. The grass was extremely
tough and my sickle was extremely
dull. I hacked away with, great en
ergy. But the progress I made was
small. By noon I was tuckered out
and atill my task was less than half
I then decided to open negotiations
with the stern-faced female. I pointed
out the fact that I had taken the con
tract at too small a figure. She held
to her position that a contract was a
contract. I said a man would charge
her at least a dollar to cut that grass;
why should she expect a boy to do it
Settles for Half.
Finally we compromised. I ac
cepted 7 cents for the work I had
done. Then I spent the afternoon in
riotous living. Cream puffs brought
Another financial venture of my
boyhood I remember. I contracted to
pick tobacco worms off the plants in
a man's tobacco. field. (This was in
Pennsylvania). I think i got 2 cents
per jar. Some days I cleared 10 cents.
1 worked on a larm during tne
summers of my twelfth to fifteenth
years, receiving $6, $9 and $12 a
month. My advancing stipends show
what a good worker I was. I soon
made a reputation there as the best
weed cutter in that part of the coun
try. We worked only from 4:30 a. m.
until dark and were then all through
for the day except, of course, the
chores, which didn't take more than
two hours. ,
At the early age of 14 years J
wrote my first story. It concerned
the spine-chilling adventures of a super-boy
among the Indians. I thought
it was a great story, but the maga
zine editors did not share this opin

spend the first fifteen years of your
life, John. Distasteful though it is
to me to talk about myself, I will
conclude this little personal talk for
you tomorrow. '
