H. & J. H. HALE'S catalogue OF whitest wood that it is possible to obtain. All should be as rounding full as can be conveniently packed without injury to the fruit. There should be no inferior fruit put in, and that in the bottom and middle of the package should be just as good or better than that on top. Having made sure of this, these should be packed in clean, bright crates or boxes, and of the size required by the markets where the fruit is to be sold. We in the east mostly use the square quart American baskets, well ventilated at sides and corners, and pack them in thirty two or forty-eight-quart crates that are also well ventilated at sides and ends, and are returned when empty. In some sections of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, and Missouri, they use shal ow boxes, about 14 X20 inches, called a tray; into these they turn loosely sixteen quarts of berries, and packing four of these, one above the other, and a thin cover over the top one, cleats nailed on the sides to hold them together, makes a "stand" containing sixty-four quarts. In the market the berries are scooped up and measured out by the quart, more or less mussed, with a shrinkage of about twelve per cent., and yet this abomination appears satisfactrry to those that have not learned of any bet- ter way. Surely no money can be made on small fruits handled so. In the west and southwest most of the fruit is sent to market in what is known as the " Hal- lock, " a box five inches square, two and one-half inches deep, bottom elevated half an inch so as not to crush the berries below, and no slit or hole for ventilation. These are packed three deep
