(Berwick Register, March 9th, 1898)

"Mr. Benj. Sanford of Woodville, was in Berwick last week taking orders for his improved apple basket and "pulp header." The basket is contrived to open from the bottom, thus avoiding any danger of bruising the fruit. The "pulp header" has a rim around it and the apples for the head of the barrel can be placed upon it and lowered into the barrel without being disarranged. Any person who is accustomed to pack apples can appreciate this contrivance."

Kingston Station: "Messrs. L.O. Neily and J.W. Welton, of Aylesford, have been requested by a number of persons at this place to address a meeting in Kingston Hall next Saturday evening on their recent trip to London with a cargo of apples and have kindly consented to do so."

Canning: "A very successful meeting was held in Rooney's hall on Saturday evening, under the direction of the Canning agricultural society. The meeting was addressed by J. E. Starr, Esq. and Prof. J. E. Hopkins, of Nappan Dairy Station. Mr. Starr's address was along the general lines of agriculture, particularly dwelling upon the importance of fruit growing as an industry. It must be remembered that Mr. Starr was sent to England last year by the Government to ascertain for the benefit of the people the best methods of handling apples, particularly the packing, shipping and marketing. He showed most conclusively that honesty in packing and proper ventilation in shipping were the great essentials in procuring a good price for our fruit. Mr. Hopkins was then called upon to speak. He at once took up the well worn but not worn out subject of dairying. He spoke along the lines of feeding cows for the greatest production of milk at the least cost, clearly showing that perhaps greater skill was required along the line of dairying than any other branch of farm work. He urged all present to give more and better attention to the producing of milk for the creamery."
