' These country 'phones are inexpensive, but the peo- ple should not make the mistake of expecting some- thing for nothing, but .should assess themselves a reasonable amount to keep the lines and instruments in order. : Of course the benefits of the farrh 1 'phorte are ob- vious. One ob$e<kion to country .' life has been its lonesomeiiess," its isolation. This is largely done away with. Neighbors that before were to all intents and purposes out of one another's world are brought clos- er together, as the telescope brings a distant object.

These packeries have to be supplied with fruit from the orchard, which gives employ- ment to another lot of laborers who earn from $1.50 to $2.00 per day; and yet; with this army of laborers in this busi- ness, the waste of fruit is imniense. Take this forty miles above mentioned, along these railroads which cover this valley, and there is at this time laying on the ground under the trees one hun- dred or more cars of oranges and lemons going to waste. This fruit packing business is simply enormous, and it con- tinues the year round, as the lemon is a continuous bearer,—never lets up,—and a late orange called the Valinches com- mences ripening in August and contin- ues till the first of December.
