'H HOT FLORIDA
Oklawaha, Feb. 15, 1914.
Editor Star: What the scientist
Joes for the. farmer is shown in
some work of the agricultural de department
partment department in the fruit growing dist
ricts of California. Aside from fur furnishing
nishing furnishing remedies for diseases of the
trees they have shown the fruit
growers a new line of profit. From
the time that lemons and oranges
were first grown there, and as in
Florida now, the culls were left on
the trees until they droppeJ off. They
were then gathered by the ton and
thro'wn in a dump, an! &en they
fully rotted were used for manure.
The scientists first proved that that
way of disposing of them was one of
the chief causes of the spread of scale
and numerous other pests. The
?rower3 were informed that these
culls were very valuable as raw ma material
terial material for the proluction of acii, and
they began to ship them east to large
manufacturing concern engaged in
Orange and lemon' growers say
now that their returns from the
culls are nearly equal to the price
they receivei for their "second best"
friut, and that the culls alone would
almost pay for the upkeep of the
grove, leaving all other fruit as a net
The scientists then pointed out
that factories could be erected at a
small outlay of capital for manufac manufacturing
turing manufacturing acids in California instead of
shipping the culls all the way to the
Atlantc ocean. A movement was set
on foot to build factories, when the
railroads heard of it and they im immediately
mediately immediately made arrangements to
greatly lower the rate on culls. The
result of it all is that the fruit grow growers
ers growers will make more money, and in
the end the people will get oranges,
lemons and candied fruits in which
these acids are used cheaper.'
Without the aid of the "farm
demonstrator" who had a kncw kncw-ledege
ledege kncw-ledege of chemistry and biology this
thing could never have 'been done.
The California fruit farmer "did not
think that he knew it all, and so he
welcomed the "farm demonstrator."

"Oh, wait, please," he heard Edith

Edith Cortlandt, her hand upon the

"Chiquita is not my name," she said,
"Yes, it is; it must be. I can't

been whispering at my earsever since
you said it? It has nearl driven me
mad. Why didn't you come back as
you promised?" v
"It was Stephanie she is such a
