INDUSTRY (Continued)

carrying the fruit from fields to canneries, to the railways for shipping, and to the near-by towns for quick consumption. In fact, California is gridironed with motor-transport routes.

This year the California fruit crop has exceeded all expectations, and every effort is being made to rush the fruit to the canneries to save the crop, owing to the shortage of freight cars. In talking with one of the representative bankers from the State at the recent Bankers' Convention, he stated that the raisin crop alone exceeded three hundred million pounds, which is three pounds for each man, woman, and child recorded in the Census. Regardless of the Eighteenth Amendment, the vineyards are also making an excellent showing, and wine grapes are selling for five and six times as much a ton as they were before the country went dry.



Throughout the Middle West, where great stretches of prairie make shipping difficult and where transportation by rai! often necessitates from three to four transfers of freight in what might be a twelve-hour trip, local business have seen a big field in the establishment of motorized express. With the advent of good roads express truck routes have been established through many sections of the country.

Seattle, Spokane, Portland, and Tacoma, in the Pacific Northwest, are alive with motor-truck transportation companies, as are the States of Nevada, Arizona, Utah, and Colorado, which even have their ore-carrying fleets. The recent unparalleled production of the Southwestern oil fields would have been impossible but for the motor truck, and Texas, with its 150,000 miles of roads, would stagnate but for motor transport.

A new development which is even now in an experimental stage is "logging" by In some motor over corduroy roads. sections of the Far West this logging by motor has been found more satisfactory in certain cases than the old-fashioned method of "running" the logs, especially so in the case of fine timber cr for purposes of rapid delivery, and for these specific purposes it threatens to supersede the old system. It also has the advantage that on return trips supplies may be brought back to the camp and better communication maintained with the world outside.


Speaking concretely, motor transport has done much for the country's economic needs. It has facilitated transport by expediting the short haul. renders auxiliary service to the railways; it enlarges the farmer's market, shortens the time of delivery, and reduces the spread of price between the producer and consumer. It is in no sense a competitor of the railways, for it moves in an altogether different field. Railways, waterways, and motor transport each have their place. To insure economical distribution each should be used to the full measure of its effectiveness.

LANTIN, the famous old-time printer of Antwerp, founded a business which flourished for three hundred years. It was then bought up by the municipality of Antwerp and the establishment converted into a museum. An American tourist who visited it recently describes in the "American Printer" an incident of his visit, thus:

"An attendant was at one of the old wooden presses, and a form of type was on the bed. He was selling prints from the form for two francs each. I asked to be allowed to pull a proof. I took hold of the handle and pulled. He told me to pull harder. I pulled harder. (I don't think I'd care to have been a pressman in the old days.) He took the proof and examined it; then shook his head and pointed out that the margins were not straight. With Plantin traditions back of him he wouldn't pass the print, but made me pull another."

This interesting survival of old publishing days narrowly escaped destruction during the war, as a bomb from a Zeppelin fell near it and laid waste a large space.

Dear Mrs. McGowan across the hall was speaking of the trouble she's been having with her car, "Motor Life" ra. ports. "But everybody has trouble lately," she said; "and it's nothing in the world but them using these raw materials at the factories."

"In The Outlook of October 11," a subscriber writes, "an article on 'Platinum' contains this sentence: 'Platinum is one of the heaviest things in nature, being passed only by iridium, with which that metal is always associated, and by tungsten and molybdenum.' Platinam, with a specific gravity of 21.48, is surpassed by two other metals of the platinum group -iridium and osmium. The latter, with its specific gravity of 22.48, is the heaviest substance known. Tungsten is a little lighter than gold, and molyb denum is but little heavier than iron."


Patience was the subject of the teacher's discourse, the "Argonaut" says, and to illustrate her point she drew on the blackboard a picture of a small boy sitting on the bank of a stream, fishing. "You see this lad, children," she said, beaming on her pupils. "He's fishing. Well, even the pleasure of fishing requires patience. He must be prepared to sit and wait." And she dilated on the importance of being patient. "Now, then, can any of you boys tell me what we need most when we go fishing?" she invited. Like one voice came a chorus from the class: "Bait!"

"I must say, cook," said the lady of the house, as reported by the London "Morning Post," "that of late vour work has been very perfunctory." Before she could continue, cook broke in with: "Thank yer kindly, mum. I've been here three months now, and though I've tried my best, that's the first bit of praise I've had since I've been here."
