The meeting of tho gntngers of Berrien county held at Hotel Benton today recalls a similar mooting hold twenty years ago. The object of this conference was to formulate a plan whereby the fruit growers may »ell their products to the consumer without the aid of tho commission men or middlemen. It has been proposed that tho fruit growers of this section engage a reliable man to take charge of their fruit on the Chicago dock and attend to ita delivery to-customers In .Chicago aud other cities.  * #  ♦ *  Twenty years ago or thereabout, in 1875 or 1876, the granges which were stronger then than now numerically tried the same exi»oritn<nit. That wan the time when Berrien county blos> sonied every spring with peach (lowers and when the industry was at it» height, the Lime before the pretty ot-chards were destroyed by the yellows.  There was complaiut thou as now against the dishonesty of Chicago commission merchants urn! the fruit growers whether juhtly or not said they were the victims of systematic robbery.  They gathered together and organized and engaged Thomas Mason, a business-like farmer of Steven.Hville to go to Chicago and sell the products of the Berrien county farms and orchards The plan did not work as highly satisfactory as was expected and inside of two years Mr. Mason had come out of tin* copartnership wjlh the capital and the fruit growers with the exjHirience. In other words Mr. Mason was a regulation commission man on his own hook and the fruit growers were comj»elled to pay him the same commission on sales that they did the others. The grange people merely established another commission house and when they saw what they had »lone dropj»e<l Mr. Mason, though with their support he had worked up so good a business that he was able to stand alone.  That was a good while ago and t ber* is more business about the fruit grower now than there was then and it is safe to predict that any arrangement which the grangers may make Unlay will Ik*. resultant in more good to them than was the arrangement with the Stevens-ville farmer a score of years ago.  « *  -*  A case has Iwen taken into the courts this week from Femiviile which will interest every fruit grower in Michi gan, and will be watched especially close by the growers in this county who have entered complaints against an alleged combine in the price of fruit packages.  John Marron is a large and wealthy fruit grower at Fornivi lie. He has relocated I y refused to stump the baskets in which he sold his peaches. The basket manufacturers and not Mr. Barron are really on trial, and it is said that the basket manufacturers' union is backing the Kenn ville man and the fruit growers’ association <. of West Michigan are prosecuting the case.  * *  *  There is a state law which demands that everv manufacturer of fruit packages stamp the numl>er of puuuds the |Ntckage is supiHjsed to contain, the same to be according to the cubic measurements of the package. The manufacturers the past year did not comply with the, law, as they claimed that t he stamping of packages entailed too much work and expense. Tim fact is that the manufacturers entered a combine last spring and in the face of an enormous erop raised the prices of baskets in some eases per cent . No manufacturer was allowed to sell packages at a figure below that determined by the organizers of the combine and the only lever one firm had over another in the race for business was sin-inking the si/e of the package and convincing the fruit grower that he could get as much fora small basket as for a iarge basket of peaches. By this arrangement it (ook more baskets to market the erop and the freight rates also were the game for a small basket as a full sized package. The shrewd growers saw that tho deal was entirely in the interests of the basket makers and the’ traus|M>rtatiou companies and the case a-jainst Mr, Barron is one to test the validity of the law which is supposed to compel manufacturers to stamp the quantity the package cautains.  In speakiug of the B; trron case today President Morrill of the state horticultural society remarked that the only manufacturer living up to the law that he knew of was R. T. Pierce of South Haven whoso packages were full sized and stumped.  Cut UUmi.  We carry a full aud well assorted line of the finest cut glass, Call and make selections and have goods laid away.

Conkey’s hall was the scene of a merry party last night, theevont being a private leap year ball given by 24 young ladies of the city, who with the assistance of their invited friends danced until a late hour.  There were nearly forty couples iu tho grand march which was formed shortly after nine o'clock and was followed by a varied program, Stephens & Babcock's orchestra furnishing the music.  Colored waiters served refreshments after each dance and everyone who was ho fortunate as to receive an invitation and could not attend missed one of the best times of the season.  IN BENTON HARBOR.  Stato Board of Correction and Charities May Meet Hare.  County Agent Charles Whitehead has determined that it would be a benefit to Benton Harbor to have the state iKiard of charities and corrections and the association of county agents hold a joint meeting in Benton llarbor in December 1897. These organizations have just closed u three days’ session at Reed City. Mr. Whitehead was in attendance, and he is very desirous that Benton Harbor should nave an opportunity to learn something of the work uuder charge of these, two bodies« ~llc fancies it would stimulate the nitiien* to more active co-operation with him in the suppression of vice among the juvenile «•lasses.  Mr. Whitehead at the Kced City meeting recommended an important amendment to the criminal statutes which will be considered by tho legislative committee, drafted into a bill and presented before the legislature this winter. The amendment provides against the debauching of boys.  againstherIiwFihterest.  Mrs. Rapoljo It* Fighting tho Union Ice and Coal Company.  Kcfcrriug to the prodccdings by which Mrs. A. W.

THE SALARIES THEY PAY,  Benton Harbor Alleged to Be Re-aponalbla for tha Destruction of 7,000 Pounda of Wool.  Next week the circuit court will do* Ermine whether Benton Harbor ià liable for thé loss sustained by George B. Tatman and Luther Hemmingway the in the damage by water to 90,000 pounds of wool stored by them in base' ment of a building which stood oh thu site hoW occupied bÿ thfc Siévens à Morton block ott Pipestone street, the damage being done March 1; 1802; almost five years ago.  iiëiiciàted cUitiis tibvebihg Iheir ihsd nave been presented to the common council by Tatman and Hemmingway, but in every case the bills were ignored, the city holding that the St. Joseph & Benton Harbor street railway üoidpàny was responsible for the loss. So sure was the city of the position it took that it was willing to be mode the defendant in a suit for 14,000 damages brought by ïâtman And Hemmingway rather than pay the claim. If a jury decides that the city is liable and a judgment against it Is rendered it is proposed to attempt to collect of the street railway company if such a thing is possibly.  The accident occurred at the time the street railway company was equipping its lino for the use of electricity. The workmen employed in getting the necessary poles dug a hole on tho west side of Finestone street almost op|ios!te of J. J. Miller’s meat market, throwing the dirt into the gutter, thereby creating a dam.  A heavy rain storm occurred during the night of March 1, 18!>2, and the gutter being obstructed, the water ran across a vacant lot and entered the basement where the wool was stored through a windoy midway the length of the building. The water, so it is alleged In the declaration, also entered the front part of the basement, and al together about 7,000 pounds of wool was destroyed.  The plaintiffs claim that aside from the actual loss by water they were greatly inconvenienced by th« fact of having been delayed In marketing the wool, *They.intended to dispose of the property in Benton flarlior, thereby saving the freight and commission charges of tlie Chicago market. Thi*-they were prevented from doing because of the damaged condition of theii stock and wore comfielicd to dis|K>se of it at a heavy loss in tho Chicago market.  They claim that the city should lum kept the gutter unobstructed, aud in neglecting so to do made itself liabU 1  The plaintiffs will be represented at tho trial by Lawyer George W. Bridgman and-tuc city by Lawyer Charles N.

Bom® years ago, upon the coast of France, there occurred one of those romantic episodes that seem to belong to tho realm of fiction. A resssl had foundered within sight of port—-goue down with all her cargo. Two divers were aent to report upon tho cause of the dis» aster snd the prospect of raising the good«. One of these represented the insurance brokers, who iiad instituted the investigation, aud the other the captain and owners of the vessel.  The brokers’ man touched bottom first and found himself on a bed of white sand. He was fortunate enough almost immediately to discover the wreok and at ouee olimhed the crags upon whiah tho vessol rested. Investigation showed him that thero had been foul play, for au auger hole was pluiuly visible in the hull of the ship.  He had turned to point out his disoor* fry to the other diver, who was now by his side, when he felt himself suddenly olutoheil by tho waist and dragged down upon the sand. Hero his assailant murderously attempted to break the giasa of his helmet, but the assailed man fought desperately for his life.  Ho firmly helievwl himself to be in the clutch of u madman, aud for a few minutes the water was thick with sand that flew up around the eombatauts. In tho end the first diver was worsted, and iiis assailant forced him to lose bold apon his line.  Death seemed imminent, but the diver's wits did not forsake him. Finding that he was no match for hia adversary, ho fell back aud apparently swooned, and iu this conditiou the other man prepared to ieavo him, cut off from com-munictttion with tho upper world. He gave the signal to be drawn up, hut ss he begau to ascend tho apparently swoon* ing mail sprang to his feet and clutqbed th« rising man’s legs with a firm grip, and the two were hauled to tho surface together.  Then, indeed, the ready witted diver fainted in earnest, and before he regain* ed consciousness his enemy had escapod to land and when captured was attempting to leave tho coitutry. At the trial he explained the reason of his conduct  It was the old story of greed leading to unlawful deed and of the resulting danger inciting to fresh crime—an over* insured cargo, a scuttled ship and then a frantic effort ou the part of the ship* owners to avoid disi ace and punish* n*eut by offering to the diver a sham of tho profits on condition that the discov* ery, sure to he made by his rival, should never be heard of.—Youth’s Companion.
