Her immense Fruit. Crops
and How lo Utilize
A few days since an editor of the
Mail bad occasion to call upon Mc-
Bride 1 1 Cos., of Ibis cily for the de
livery of a letter front southern Geor
gia, inquiring about Cherry’s Fruit
Evaporator, naturally introduced
the great topic, which is now agita
ting the people of Georgia through
all its borders that of utilizing the
immense fruit crop, the larger part
ot which has been heretofore lo3t.
The people'liavo recently waked up
lo the fact that by proper handling ot
their fruit crops millions ol dollars
may be annually brought into the
State, thereby creating another, and
constant source of enrichment. Tho
quickest ami most economical mode
of preparing the fruit for the market
is (hcnf .ro a vastly important mat
ter, and it is the duty ol the press to
aid the people with all attainable in
formation on this point. Col. A. J.

much time to the investigation, as

‘•Have you been making tests ?”
‘‘Yes, last year 1 looked into the
matter somewhat, but not until this
did I take hold ol it in eianest. 1
have not only experimented myself
with evaporators, but I have had tests
made lor me by disinterested parties
at a distance. I have obta nod from
all parts ol the country circulars and
information touching the vorious
evaporators in use, and by compac

that I have discovered just w hat the
