THE BOSTON SUNDAY GLOBE -ATGTTST 5. 1923 70 FRUITS AND VEGETABLES Peas, Beans, Beets Cheap Glut of Peaches Tt was an unsatisfactory week for producers and distributors of native grown beets and beans. Consumers apparently have tired of these vegetables. A a result, prices have had a downward tendency for several days and are now on a basis which leaves little profit for anybody. The market for carrots also is very much lower, but is not Is nearly demoralized as is that fdr ty-ets and beans. Bunch carrots a week ago were and cutoffs 13 strong, whereas yesterday sellers were to get 40ac and respectively. In fact, the market for most kinds of vegetables appears to be suffering from inertia. Receipts of potatoes declined sufficiently tho past week to warrant, under normal conditions, higher prices. The market has failed to respond to diminished supplies, however. Green corn, usually selling briskly at this Um of tin; year. Is comparatively inactive. New Connecticut Valley onions, outdoor grown cucumbers Jsuromer squash and tomatoes are going mighty slowly. Maine and York State peas were cheaper and difcult to move Friday and yesterday, sr; at reduced prices. Of all the many different kinds of vegetables hand.ed locally the past week, only one was in sufficient demand to absorb an advtpo in price cabbage. Buyers of ege'sbies have maintained that prices are higher than the quality of offerings warrant. This may be true in some but generally the quality is up to standard. Trices, on the other rand, are down to an unprofitable basis for the farmer. But there apparently is a limit to prices buyers will pay for eatables, as was demonstrated in the fruit as well a the vegetable market, California cantaloupes were In shan supply. Efforts by receivers to raise prices on limited supplies were unsuccessful. In fact, the market for 6uch melons In standard A MIGHTY BARGAIN-EVENT THAT IS BREAKING ALL RECORDS Even if you don't need any home-furnishings now, you are bound to see something here, priced so attractively, that you are bound to take advantage of this exceptional opportunity.

On those two days there were peaches from Georgia, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Delaware to eelect from. Supplies of pineapples are gradually shrinking, but prices do not reflect this fact. The demand for apples has dropped off recently, largely because of the Inferior quality of offerings. Orchards in certain sections of Massachusetts are in the grip of a ne.w pest. It is called an apple leaf skeletonizer and made Its first appearance In any great degree in Connecticut last year. Where the pest attacks leaves, the apples mature early and drop from the trees.

"I eat what I like; drink when I fwl like it; eat plenty and sleep Yr! little," be eaid. success with second-place material. Rockwell has no prejudice against pretty girls. Like many who grope about for a medium which will bring them recognition, he happened on child subjects accidentally. For four yoars after leaving art school he engaged in the work which came to him most easily, and it happened to be illustrating stories for certain magazines, all of which required the portraying of youthful characters. It was only natural, therefore, that he should glorify young America when he embarked in cover designing. Norman Rockwell was born in New York 29 years ago, and at the age of 11 had his career all mapped out for him by his mother. the fact that her father and brother had achieved no conspicuous success as artists, she encouraged Norman to draw as soon a he could hold a pencil. much atmosphere came his way, however, that he labored for weeks over an order which should have been completed in as many days. He is now convinced that his Ideas can best be developed by sticking close to his studio. This is easily understandable wlren you visualize his studio surrounded by flowers and trees in the peace and quiet of New Rochelle. Rockwell has no hobbies aside from his work and whereas some would account for their success by tha men Resents Offer of Lift by Autoist Has Daughters 86 and 82 Respectively I relaxation from outside diversion, he t'on was one of amazement that the 70-year-old explorer should have been wedded to a girl of 15. After this initial contract, orders for Illustrating were not difficult to get and before he was of his 'teens the artist found himself in demand toys' magaaines. This work gave no indication of making- him rich, however, and when he married at 21 tho needed stimulus was received which was to put him in the front rank of American magazine artists. Less than o. year after his marriage he sold his tfrst cover to the Saturday Evening Post, and thereupon signed a contract to supply 12 cover designs yearly. His work attracted the attention of the editors of Life and the Literary Digest, and he was shortly under contract to these magaaines also. Then advertisers began to bid for his vork, and Rockwell found himself working 12 hours a day when the light favored to keep up with the demand. Since in this day achievement is large-y reckoned by the financial reward, it should be stated that magaaines think rothing of paying $500 for cover decorations, while advertisers are glad to pay four or five times this for drawing which will attract attention to their products. Rockwell's favorite subject is boys, good, wholesome boys not of the Smart Alec type, and he would rather caw-b some home-going subway rider smiling over the realism of his work than receive plaudits on his technique from a dozen fellow artists. The strangest thing about this realism Is the fact that Hockwell has never done himself what he pictures his boys as doing. And he attributes whatever success may be his to this fact. "If I had been born on a farm i probably would have become so worked up over the fact that I had to hoe potatoes when I wanted to go fishing I never would have been able to find any humor in such a situation today," is the way he explained this point. He believes that too close contact with the things he pictures would cause him to lose his perspective. As an instance of the dangers of too great technical knowledge -he told of a commission to Illustrate a story of Harry Leon Wilson's dealing with life in a motion-picture studio. To acquire aUnosphero he visited a studio. Bo the old man on the road, and asked him if he did not want a lift in the automobile. Silva took the kind Invitation as an Insult to his physical progress. He informed the official that he had been walking tor nearly a century and a quarter, and that he had no use for the new-fangled vehicles that were cluttering up the roads. The old man's quaint talk aroused the interest of the official, and he made inquiry concerning hliu when he arrived at' Mazamitla. Not only is Silva 122 years old. but he has two daughters, one 86 and the other S- years old. He cultivates a small tract of land and makes a living for all three. His walk of 60 miles over th mountains recently was due to the sickness of one of Ms grandchildren, who is nearly 70 years old. He has a host of great-grandchildren. For more than 100 years Silva has been the sage of his home community. H-. acquired honor distinction when only 11 years old by running off and joining the army that fought for Mexico independence and against the rule of 'S-pain. That was in 1812. During that memorable period Silva wandered over much of He met many men of great military distinction and -was petted by them because of his youth and ttravery. His adventure covered a period of several years and It was not until he was 20 years old that he returned to hi home in Mazamitla, where he was made much of and hailed as a hero by the people of the village. His valorous deeds became a tradition of succeeding generations. The years rolled by and Silva told and retold the thrilling experiences of his boyhood days. Boys and girls who grew to be men and women, arrived at middle-age and then passed on through life and died, had listened to his stories and they in turn were succeeded by their children and their children's children in listening to the wonderful tales which Jose Ascension Silva proudly related to them. It is Silva's ambition to live through five generations. He says that so far as his own environment Is concerned, there have been practically no changes In living conditions since he was born. He expressed himself as indifferent to what iB going on In the outside world- This is my world," he declared as be swept the mountaln-bouad valley with Had Him There A vegetarian had an amusing experience the other morning at breakfast. His family was ut of town, so he went to a restaurant and took a seat nest to a stranger. The vegetarian took occasion to advertiso his creed by telling the stranger all Meat was Injurious, dnd that the human diet should be strictly vegetarian. "But." replied the stranger, "I dom eat "You Just ordered eggs," said the vegetarian. "An egg Is practically meat, because it eventually becomes a hird." "The kind of eggs I eat never become birds," answered the strange, quietly. A-ood gracious," cried the vegetarian. "what kfnd of eggs do you eat? "Principally boiled eggs, sir."

"How would you sum up the essentials for in your lin of work?" he was asked. i ''Love your work and get married," he answered without a moment's GUADALAJARA, Mexico In the archieves of the old parish church at Mazamitla, this State, is recorded the birth of Jose Ascension Silva, who is still a very active member of that moXintaln community. It shows that he is past 122 years old. The date of his birth was May 16, 1S0L He is a native of the little village where he still makes his home.
