The California Fruit Growers' Ex change has prepared a remarkable comparison between apples and oranges, one which would seem convincing to the Eastern market. In the large circulars which this exchange is spreading broadcast throughout the East and Middle West the "Sunklst" brand is being exploited as the finest product In oranges and lemons in California, being the fancy and e^tra choice brands. Manager D. Eyman Huff of the Covina Exchange supplies the Argus with the comparison. The test of the price of the two fruits ib as follows: One-half bushel of apples at the present prices sells for $1.70, while one-half bushel of oranges, if sold in this manner brings $1.35. One peck of high-grade apples now sells for Sf> cents, and one peck of oranges for GO cents; one-half peck of apples, always high-grade, sells for 45 cents, and one-half peck of oranges for "5 cents. * In making this tabulation the highest grade fruit to be obtained Is taken both in oranges and apples. The Exchange claims that there Is a "big" bushel of oranges In an ordinarily packed box of this fruit. The "126" packed boxes and the "150" boxes of "Sunkist" brand have been sent Into the East for purposes of demonstration as regards the settling by the peck and bushel. A special sale week was toeld beginning March 22 in the Eastern markets,' «n«l' this test was made with great satisfaction' to every one. The tea is made to prove beyond doubt that the splendid, seedless, hand-picked oranges l:nown as "Sunkist" are cheaper than the best apples, and also to demonstrate that the orange may be used to advantage in more ways in cooking than the old stand-by, the apple. OHKISTIAN CHURCH REVIVAL Tlie coining wnck vs'ill 7mirk the close of tlio ^r(!!it rovivstl sit tho CliriHliitn church. Already fifty-four new names have been added to tho roll of this rapidly growing congiegnt ion as a result of the meetings now in progress, and the whole conunnnity has been stirred by the power of the gospel. The evJingelistH have the united and hearty support of the church and its many friends, and it is expected that the last week will mark the climax of revival. Dr. Martin is a bold and forceful preacher, and does not hesitate to declare the whole connxel of (!od MM contained in the scriptures, lie lias a twofold message. His appeal to lln> nn- chnrchod is to be reconciled In C!od ami to go to work for his kingdom. His plea for the churches is to remove the barriers that men have erected between them and to j;et together on the Bible and the liible alone as the rule of faith HIM! practice for the children of God. Prof, llaggitt has urgani/id a large Sunbeam ('horns wiih ulionl scvenr.y-j five members, which adds much to ihcj enthusiasm in the -ong servii-e.

MERGENTHALER LINOTYPE INSTALLED IN ARGUS OFFICE The in-west addition to the Argus plant, and the most important of the many we have made in recent years, is the installation this week of a standard Mergenthaler Linotype. This improvement will move than double the capaeily of our office For producing a newspaper and for doing book and commercial printing. By i(s use the type is cast new each time, which makes a clean and readable impression. It also docs away with individual types, entire lines being cast from molten meal, so thai the amount of matter that can he set at one time is unlimited. It makes the type in the different sixes, light and dark, etc., not, however, the large display type. After printing from the slugs they are simply thrown into the melting pot to be recast, so that, all distribution is eliminated. One of these machines has the capacity of about six hand compositors and will do about three times the work uf that of our Simplex typesetter, which machine it has replaced. The Mergenthaler Linotype was the first commercially successful composing machine in the world, and is today the standard composing machine everywhere. Twenty years ago hand composition alone was in use; today 20,000 American-built Linotypes are in use throughout the world. Practically every newspaper of importance in the United States is printed from Linotype faces. Linotypes are in use in the government printing offices of the lending nations. They are also used in the offices of most of the state printers of 'the United States. They are used by many hundred hook and job offices, where they set the type for the finest de luxe editions. Tiie^Ar^us is determined, tp keep abreast, and even ahead, of the growtr of, pb*>it M nd Besides the Linotype, orders liavo been placed &l* Ji rtW6r {wJ nients.
