The Value cff the Elberta.
Cincinnati, May 11.—“If the pub
lic only knew the value of the Geor
gia peach for preserving, the house
wife would not wait for the later
crop from the north, but would buy
early,” said D. Martin, the Cleveland
wholesaler. “It was a surprise to
me, for I have handled peaches all
m y life, but last year I took some
home and had my wife put them up.
They were choice Elbertas, and the
results are far beyond any expecta
tion I had.
“Later on I took home other vari
eties from Michigan; and told my
wife I wanted her to do her best. I
was more than pleased with the
Georgia Elberta, and it is certainly
far superior to any peach I ever saw
for preserving. It comes out of the
jar as sound and firm as the day it
went in, whereas, the Michigan
peaches are soft and mushy. I ad
vise all my trade to buy early
peaches, and I am glad to learn that
we can expect a good crop this
Commenting upon this subject,
Mr. John Fugazzi, whose firm is a
hea\y receiver of the Georgia peach,
states that he is urging all his ship
pers to adopt the same methods of
advertising the merits of their
peaches as the California Prune
Growers’ Association has done to
increase the sale of California
prunes. At a meeting of the prune
growers, a large sum of money was
voted to be used to advertise the
merits of prunes when properly
cooked, and "fine literature and dem
onstrators are now employed in a
systematic manner to educate the
Mr. Fugazzi is urging all growers
to place a small printed slip in each
basket, telling of the good qualities
of the Elbertas.
The Georgia peach is new to the
people at large, and from long habit
the housewife has waited until the
northern peaches were on the mar
ket before buying. There is no
question about the Elberta peach
being much superior to any of the
Michigan Btock, either in size, eplor
or taste. Mr. Fugazzi’s suggestion
is a good one, and would enhance
the value of the Georgia peach very
much. It only requires one trial to
convince any housekeeper of its su
periority,but in order to break down
old customs a system of education is
necessary. The commission houses
are fast learning, but the calls upon
a commission man’s time are so
many that very little time is left for
him to try to educate the grocer. If
this suggestion was followed out ev
ery grocer would have a very strong
argument in his hands whenever he
offered a basket to a purchaser.
The growers that inaugurated
this movement will very soon realize
the value and judgment from the
benefits already coming to the prune
growers by judicious advertising; a
system of this character would bring
much more money to the shipper.—

The Prophecy Fulfilled.
In an old copy of the South Geor
gia Times, dated May 28th, 1873,
and sent to this office yesterday, we
find the following under the caption
"An English Estimate of Lee.”
“An able article on Robert E. Lee,
in the Edinburg Review, contains
the following: *The day will come
when the evil passions of the great
civil strife will sleep in oblivion, and
north and south will do justice to
each other’s motives and forget each
other’s wrongs. Then history will
speak with clear voice of the deeds
done on either side, and the citizens
of the whole Union do justice to the
memory of the dead,and place above
all others the name of the great
chief of whom we have written. In
strategy mighty; in battle terrible;
in adversity, as in prosperity, a hero
indeed, with the simple devotion to
duty and the rare purity of the ideal
Christian knight, he joined all the
kingly qualities of a leader of men.
It is a wondrous future, indeed, that
lies before America, but in her an
nals of years to come, as in those of
the. past, there will be found few
names that can rival in unsullied
lustre that of the heroie defender of
his native Virginia, Robert Edward
This article was printed just after
the death of the souths great chief
tain, but at a time when the passions
of war were still burning in the
hearts of the people on both sides of
the Mason and Dixon line. The pro
phetic vision of the writer, however,
has long since been vindicated and
the day has come “when the evil
passions of the great civil .strife
sleep in oblivion.” And as that day
has come, the sober judgment of the
best thinkers, north and south, agree
that few names rival in “unsullied
lustre that of fhe heroic defender of
Virginia, Robert Edward Lee.”

It is a growing feeling among both
newspaper readers and thoughtful
editors that it has become an in
creasing practice to give too broad
a place to that which is trivial if not
immoral. A liveryman’s girl elopes

is telegraphed around the world and
given a column not alone in each of
the “yellow” journals, but in the
best and most conservative papers,

entertaining, instructive and helpful
are crowded out.—National Printer-

ten years is the great growth of our
commerce with Europe during the
Within that decade our total ex
ports of merchandise to all Europe
an countries increased from $704,-
798,047 to $1,040,167,763. The to
tal of our imports from all European
countries is another story. It actu
ally diminished from $459,305,372
in 1891 to $440,569,314 in 1900. It
is our export , trade only with Eu
rope that has increased. The exact
net increase, including both imports
and exports, of our European com
merce was $316,631,658 during the
same ten years in which our trade
with all the states of Central and
Soutb America has remained at a
standstill. Mexico alone of all the
American countries to the south of

The only instance on record of a
post office being named after a pat

Wetzel county, W. Va., a new post
office was established and named
Kodol, after the famous Kodol Dys
pepsia Cure, manufactured by E. C.
DeWitt & Co,, of Chicago. It had
given such satisfactory results that
the name was unanimously selected
by the people for the new office and
adopted by the department at Wash

tirely voluntary on the part of the
people of the community, without
any solicitation whatever from the
manufacturers of Kodol Dyspepsia

they obtained regarding the matter
was when they received a letter
bearing the post mark “Kodol, W.
