The season for small fruits is upon us and Father Burke, President of the Fruit Growers' Association, was busy on Tuesday securing best prices for the surplus product with the city preservers. The state of prices is as follows: Gooseberries, 16 cents a gallon; currants, 16 cents a gallon; raspberries, 12 cents a gallon; and blueberries, 8 cents a gallon. A price for plums, apples and tomatoes will be made later and made known to the public. The fruits can be delivered at the following places:
Tignish - John McLellan Alberton - B Rogers and Dyer, Woodman and Hunter St. Louis - J. Hughes and J. B. Gaudet Elmsdale - C. Currie and L. Rennie O'Leary - W. H. Turner Coleman - A.

Fruit should be picked rather on the green side. Gooseberries are worth being gathered. It will be of great advantage to the fruit growers of this country to have a secure and fixed market for their surplus market in fruit.
