MARKETING FRUIT. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 14 February 1907

=r=== I MARKETING FRUIT. Fruit growers in England are taking note of how the Americans are market ing thsir fruit, and it is almost certain that the American methods will be adopted in England before long. Aus tralians are already pursuing some of the wavs of the fruit growers of ? the United States, and should not fail to take advantage of any further improve ments that are mado by Americans in the marketing of fruit. The American growers are now giving effect to a plan whereby all small bush fruits are sent to market in 'non-returnable' receptacles. It has been found that fruit forwarded in this way brings higher prices, and this, together with the expense saved through no back-carriage freight having to be paid, more than compensates the grower for the extra cost involved in providing non-returnable punnets and boxes. Strawberries look far more at tractive when marketed in punnets lined with strawberry leaves than they do when the old method is adopted. Goose berries and other sm...

MUi'lDER GOES FREE. Public opinion in Italy is sharply divided on the question of a verdict of not guilty pronounced oil Alberto Olive, a man of intelligence an 1 good position, who killed his wife under severe provocation some time age at Milan. The wife, it appears, was in every respect her husband's inferior, and, owing to this, their married life turned out most unhappily.

To hide his deed, he cut the body into pieces, packed them in a trunk, and took the grisly re mains to Genoa, Whore he threw them, into tho sea. Parts of tho body were recovered by fishermen, and Olive was arrested.
