THURSDAY. November 30th
',;
Brokers in New York are
continually urging the neces-
sity of careful grading and
packing of the commodities
which we export, and as our
P licy has always been to
urge these reforms, we ven-
ture to make a few remarks
on this question.
TOMATOES
The complaint is made
that our Tomatoes are pack-
ed just anyhow. Good', bad
and indifferent all being
Jumped higgledy piggledy.
l fruit are all to be found in
the same crate, and all sizes
are mixed together. This
lack of careful grading and
j'ii king, the Northern mer-
Hants inform us, seriously
depreciates the value of the
shipments as a whole. If
good fruit, carefully s-le, led,
and well packed i's put on
the market, it will always
command the highest prices ;
and if our shippers are care-
ful to see that, this is done,
their consignments will meet
with a ready demand, and
at tip top prices.
Sim ss and make it what it
Ought to be,- a stable and
lermanent source of revenue.
deserves to be lifted out of
the* mi re of cut-throat com-
petition, and petty commer-
cial jealousies, and placed on
