The Thing Desired.
The N. Y. Produce News under
date Oct. 6th says: "-The daily aver-
age for the week was 15 to 18 ears of
grapes from the Uermantown sec-
tion. Some 1,800,000 41b baskets
needed .for the crop. The seasons
distribution has covered a wide ter-
ritory so that there have been no
complaints of overstocked markets
due to heavy shipments to any one
This Is exactly what Florida
orange growers are now trying to ac-
complish through their orgainxzation,
the Florida Citrus Exchange, and
there is no question but what the
wider and more equal distribution
will have a mighty good effect on
the Citrus markets of the country,
prove a benefit to growers and all
dealers as well.
A meeting of the Crescent City
Citrus Growers' Association on Sat-
urday was addressed by General Man-'
ager M. E. Gillett, who exhaustively
discussed all phases of the work ac-
complished to date, as well as the
local situation In crescent City and
vicinity. Growers were present
from Pomona and other nearby dis-
tricts and many questions were sub-
mitted, all of which the speaker
answered to the complete satisfac-
tion of the deeply interested au-
dience. The people present repre-
sented 160,000 boxes cf fruit, and tfhe
largest portion of it will be handled
through the Exchange, many grow-
ers having decided to contract their
crops after Mr. Oillett's address.
Conditions are peculiar in this sec-
tion, and many features are met
which do not obtain elsewhere. It
was decided to form a sub-exchange
in Crescent City, composed of local
association and *'single house" asso-
ciations in Pomona. Lake Como and
four or five large groves having good
packing facilities and brands widely
known in northern markets. It is
expected that fully 100.000 boxes will
be handled through this sub-ex-
change. Much of fruit will be ship-
pod by water to Jacksonville, and
there loaded In oars for distribution.
There are several very fine groves in
the Crescent City district, and much
of the prop brings high prices in the

Five youngsters drive in now fromin

on the school property is a good

some day a neat stable could be put
up and the animals taken care of out
of the rain and cold weather.

"Stand right up to him, son! Don't

river steamer Wave spoke with laugh-

One of the crew of the Wave,
young, robust and full of mischief,
stood with a grin on his face and a
firm grip on a folded horse-blanke't.
Facing him, with an equally de.ter.
mined hold on the blanket, was an-
other young fellow with fiery red hair.
The red-haired Simpson had been
engaged only two days before as
teamster on Thorn's stone-wagon. liHe
was mild-mannered, blue-eyed and in-
offensive. As a stranger to the river
front he had been quietly enjoying
the noon hour while Pcterson, the
fun-loving young deck-hand, wander-
ed restlessly about in search of an
Simpson's big horses, with bridles
off and heads b i weIre munching

The young deck-hand was no match
for the lithe Simpson, who for the
sake of amusement allowed his an-
tagonist some advantage, but turned
the tide of battle as h-, pleased.
The loud laughter and the prospect
of defeat seemed to have a bad ef-
feet on Peterson. iSimpson saw that
he was growing angry, and quickly
broke the boatman's hold.
Peterson advanced belligerently,
and 6impson retreated. The next mo-
aent the teamster was In full flight.
Pursued by the sailor, he sprinted

streaming out behind.

eyes toward the Wave. Tho opera-

twO temprary defeat and Mlmaking

suddenly, he sped on. Peterson tum-.
bled headlong over the unexpected
obstacle; and as he picked himself
up, a peremptory whistle blew for
the resumption of work.
"You're not much of a fighter,
bly, are you?" the mat, teasingly
quizzed, as Simpson passed on th'-
way to his horses. "The fellow that
runs away," he added, sententlpusly
and significantly, "lives to fight an-
other day. You've got a dangerous
gift In those long legs of yours; but
cne gond, square, up-and-down stand
will be necessary to give you a status

BHe spoke in a friemlly tone. 8Imp-

Tied upll next to the Wav'e, which
lay across the fcot of the street, was

he could back up his team. A cou-

at the stern of the steamer, within
"Hle hasn't. much spunk, Toni," one
of them audibly commented, with a
jerk of his thumb toward Simpson.
"I gu' ss all the fire escapes out of

"Don't be hard en him, mate," the
other gently chided, with mock ilym-
pathy. "Hlie's ashamed of running
away. Don't you see h" Is blushing
to the roots of his hair?"
Fi'illon smiled, and continued to
toss in the (,obblestnes with an ease
that indicated ability to stand up for
himself when necessary.
With a heapel load, Simpson
mounted the wagon. When he was
(le' r of the littering freight, he turn-
-d uip the street leading from the
Wave. The weight of his load and the
steepness taxed his splendid horses.

legs stiffened with the strain as the
load in(hed Its way upward.

turned quickly about. A laugh of ap-

greeted him. One of the crew was

his blacksnake whip. lie had never
yet struck Prince or Sager with that
thing. But now, with the reins firm-
ly grasped In one strong hand, he
swung it savagely.
It whistled through the air and
struck hard on the flanks of the
horses. There was a snort of pain
from the astonished creatures. The

noise of a thousand fire-bells, and the
terrified horses gave a mighty leap-
Instantly dropping the whip, Simp-

When Woman's Sphere

"woman's place" to take an Interest In the condition of the well, or to look
after the milk pans. All these things have been taken out of the home:
municipal water supply replaces the old oaken bucket, and people no longer
eat, as beef, the cows they hrad known and lovod from childhood. Yet every

OLD TIME BALLOON ASCENSION.
Great Event In France Celebrated
Much as In These Days.
On August 27. 1788, Prof. Charles
and the brothers Robert, mechanl.
clans, were assoclate4ln the oonstruc-
tion of a balloon of hydrogen of nine
meters in diameter, built to raise a
car and one or two passengers. It
was for some time exposed -and sus-
pended in Salle des Tuillerles In
front of the chateau for three months.
The ascent was mixed for Novem-
ber 28, but an explosion caused the
ascent to be delayed until December
1, 1788-a red letter day nla the his-
tory of Paris. At midday the sub-
scribers, who paid four louts each
for their seats, took their places in
the enclosure around the fountain.
The common people at three framse
each occupied seats la the other part
of the garden.
Times have changed, but customs
are much the same today. The event
was celebrated as In our time. -a*
cravings of various kinds celebrated
the great day, some very clever and
others inane. -rom these pletures,
or rather from the legend below them,.

In almost every community you will find women who
have bern restored to health by Lydia E. Pinkham's V*
etable Compound. Almost every woman you mee fs
either been benefited by it, or knows some one who hms.
In the Pinkham Laboratory at Lynn, Mass., are files con-
taining over one million one hundred thousand letters from
women seeking health, in which many openly state over
their own signatures that they have regained their health br
taking Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound has saved
many women from surgical operations.
Lydia Pinkham's Vegetable.Compound is made ex-
clusively from roots and herbs, and is perfectly harmless.
The reason why it is so successful is because it contains
ingredients which act directly upon the female organism,
restoring it to healthy and normal activity.
Thousands of unsolicited and genuine testimonials such
as the following prove the efficiency of this simple remedy.
