The Virginia station has reported experiment-

low-grade apples which it is estimated
constitute -10 per cent of the anijal
crop in that slate. Considerable quatiti-"
ties of this fruit are at present im
dried but it is believed that the use of
evaiorating apparatus would be much
more economical. The cost of manufac-
ture in either case is about thre-4 cent
per poiicd of finished product. Th
evaporated fruit as a rule sells for about
six cents per pound and thc dried for
only 2'i cents. The amount of evap
orated fruit per bushel of apflftp
found to be about 6.6 pound.
