The New Apple Case, ? ™ ? OS»- ?— ? .Its Dimensions, WHAT IT MEANS TO' GROWERS. Commencing from January 1st of next year, all fruitgrowers or shippers will, be required to use the new fruit case as de fined by the State Legislature. Hitherto Tasmania has been placing her fruit in a oase that was adopted j.ractically to please Victoria. That is to say that when we were shipping fruit in reason ably large quantities to that State we had to comply with the Victorian Fruit Case Act. This was done, and the case de signed for that specific purpose has been generally used ever since. But now a new condition of affairs is to be set up, under which, as will be shown later, the grower will benefit to a very consider able degree. A great deal has been said from time to timo concerning the adoption of a standard fruit case, but the reason given for the failure of the attempts to estab lish this is'' that the authorities found it impossible to hit upon the measurement that would hold exactly an ...

[?] COST OF LIVING. The Commonwealth Statistician, Mr G. H. Knibbs, is now sending out the account-books and printed instructions to those persons who have kindly volun teered to keep a record of living expenses during the year beginning on the 1st July next. The response has been cor dial from alj over the Commonwealth, but the Statistician wishes it to be known that ho is still willing to forward- a fair ?number of books to any additional volun teers, but early application is necessary, -as the number cannot be indefinitely en larged. The value of the results obtained in the investigation will be, of course, largely dependent on the accuracy of the returns and the range of the .classes represented. The information given is confidential, and the names of persons need not appear on their records.

SHORTAGE OF ' CASE ... .'..MATERIAL,. V Complaints :of a serious shortage of case material are corning from all parts of tho district. In many cases picking has been considerably delayed as a re sult, whilo not a few orchardists have stripped their trees and shot the fruit into their apple houses, where it will have to remain until cases can be pro cured to put it in. One grower at Moun tain River who has adopted this_ plan gives the opinion, learn, he says, of ex perience, that this is the best way to keep your apples. 'From about, this time of the year onward,' he states, ' the, tempera ture in the Huon is cool enough to enable to store the fruit in that way for months.' - ' I never trouble your cool stores,' he concluded in a triumphant air.

TO FIGHT CONSUMPTION. The announcement that Mr Waldori A stor has promised substantial financial aid to those engaged in fighting consump tion conies at an opportune moment (says 'Lloyd's Weekly News.') The public conscience has become somewhat 135c re garding the predisposing causes of tho awful disease, and the statement that one of the wealthy few of the community is aiding in the suppression of tho dis ease will revive interest and restore hope. It may be, also, that we shall have a de velopment of fresh onergy in tho enforc ing -of the law dealing- with insanitary dwellings. ' What is the use of trying to stamp out tho evil at one end, whilo we allow curoless honse-farmers to create fresh battalions of sufferers by letting human beings reside in dwellings that are certain to cause sickness ? Tho'30 of us who know the large towns know also that many of the worst slums of the old old days, and many of the most over crowded areas therein, are as bad as they were years ago. There i...

CHARGE AGAINST A ; SOLICITOR. The Full Court was asked on Monday to make absolute a rule nisi granted in respect of Alex ?i.nder' Scobie, solicitor, of Junee, against whom a complaint of misconduct had been made, ihe matter arose over the transfer of a residential lease and a special lease of lands in the Gundagai district from John Gooby to his son.

PROPOSED BENEFIT MATCH. GEEVESTON WITHDRAWS. At the meeting of the Com mittee of the Franklin Associa tion on Wednesday night, the Secretary (Mr M. Hay) read a letter from the Secretary of the Kermandie Football Club stating that as his club had challenged 'Huonville to play for the Dalton Shield on Saturday they would be unable to take part in the benefit match which was to take place in aid of A. Pilling. In view of the fact that the proposal for the benefit match in question came from Geeveston originally, the members of the Committee expressed the opinion that the fixture should certainly have been adhered to. It was known that the proceeds were to be devoted to a .very needful cause, and, therefore, the belief of the committeemen was that, in the circumstances, - it should have taken precedence over any other match. The action of the' Kermandie Club challenging Huonville after receiving a reply from the Franklin Association, stating their willingness to take part in the match, ...
