Handreds of Car Loads Sont In by the Big Dealers for Shipment to Cuba. Pickles Cut Short by the Drouth Apples From tho Island Bringing the K'ighesc Market Price The Grass Yeld About Half a Crop Corn Abundant, but Prioes Lower Than Ever Known. (Special to the Eagle.) Jamaica, L. I., September 3 Tho highest claim put forth by the farmers of Long Island this year Is that their situation is no worse than it was last year. The crops are not so large but the prices are somewhat better for nearly all sorts of produce. The potato crop, taking the Island as a whole, Is fully up to last year's average. Tho yield at the east end of Suffolk county In tho great potato growing regions of the towns of Southald, Rlvor - head and the Hamptons, is very heavy and the quality is excellent. There are no signs of the rot which attacked the crop last year. The wholesale dealers, who Wave been loading four or five cars daily at Cutchogue, Mattituck and other stations on the north side, and Westhampton, Speonlc and other stations on the south side, have been rushing the crop to the market until they have hundreds of car "roads ahead at Long Island City and all. along the road awaiting a market. The result of this 13 that tho market has broken and prices have tumbled frcm 35 and 40 cents a bushel down to 20 and 25 cents this week. This is In spite of large Southern shipments, 25,000 barrels going In one vessel last week to Cuba. Some good Judges of the market express the - opinion that it would be far wiser on tho part of the farmers of Long Island to hold back their potatoes for a few weeks until the prices rally a little. Thoy have been shipping much more freely this year than last year. One thing iB certain, at the present prices they need never fear shipments from Canada or Northern or Western New York, as the potatoes would hardly pay the price of the freight. They further say that an extensive blight has cut the crop short in the West, and it is quite safe to hold in anticipation of a firmer market. Usually at this time of the year,' Just before the time of cutting corn and ct plwwir?g for fall grain, the farmers all dig their potatoes in many cases to use the same ground for seeding dawn, and they cart their potatoes right from the field to the station, and this is one reason why hundreds of car loads are massed at Long Island City, Jersey City, Harlem and ether great terminal points about Now York. These shipments will soon be largely checked and prices improve. The grass yield this year was about half a crop, but theaverage quality is so poor that the market for the new crop is decidedly weak. Much of the yield is about half weeds and the hay so trashy as to furnish very poor food for horses and stock. This is partially - due to careless cultivation of - the land. The price from the northside pockets this week is about 80 cents per hundred. Many of the farmers have gone into the growing of Hungarian millet for a fodder crop arifl thijy get surprising yields of nutritious food' for their c - attle and horses at a low cost. Three tons an acre Is only a fair yield. The yield of corn this year promises to be very heavy on Long Island, but the prices are about as low as ever was known, old corn bringing only 33 cents per bushel and in view, of the probable enormous crop all over tho country they are likely to go lower. Pickles have been cut short this year by a prevalent blight and tho recent cold nights have about finished the work. There - will be no more pickles harvested this year. The prices have advanced to $2.25 and $2.50 right at the stations, where they are bought freely for spot cash by New York and Boston dealers. The farmers who have been delivering at the pickle louses during the early part of the season feel very sore at present. The owners of tho salting houses, some of wliom still have large quantles of old stock on hand and have filled up their empty tanks with new stock this year at $1 per thousand will make a handsome profit on their shipment during next fall and winter. The houses at Green - lawn were pretty well filled before the picking season began with old stock in fine condition. R. C. Colyer, a progressive farmer of Woodbury, who sprinkled a few rows of vines with the Bordeaux mixture as an antidote for the blight, has had scores of farmers visit his patch to witness the wonderfully successful result of the application. The vines continued green all through the season, while all the fields about were sere and yellow. They bore well up to the time of the cold nights this week. Mr. Colyer's example will be followed by others next season. The yield of apples this fall Is a large one, but much of the fruit is injured by worms and insects. The orchards of Long Island are getting to be the most important investment on the farm, in fact there is more clear money for less labor than in any ether department of farming. Long Island apples are so far superior In flavor to the apples from other sections as to be noted and when sound they command the highest prices In the market, 50 per cenit. more than Western fruit of the same varieties. In the Chicago market. Heinz & Co. telegraphed this morning authorizing their agent at Hicksville to pay $ - 5 a ton for windfalls for the purpose of making apple butter, although they are only paying $3 at Pittsburg for Western fruit for the same purpose. There is a fair show for profitable crops this fall of Rhode Island Greenings, Baldwins, russets and Newtown pippins. A movement is being made by some progressive farmers of tho town of Huotington to purchase large spraying machines and engage an expert to spray the trees in any of the orchards of the section of the country where the farmers are willing to pay a moderate compensation. It is felt that only by cooperation can these pests that are injuring the orchards be driven from the country. It is claimed that the spraying not. only saves the trees, but greatly improves the quality and appearance of .the fruit, adding largely to its market value. It Is "also proposed to co - operate in the matter of having the fruit carefully sorted and packed by experts and marketed direct to dealers in the larger European markets where its quality and flavor may become known by having it sold as Long Island fruit. Long Island truck growers are discouraged at the low prices received for cabbage, only $2 to ?3 per hundred for large heads, and tomatoes barely pay for the price of picking. Cauliflower starts in at low prices and the situation Is little improved over that of last year. ITEMS FROM ISLIP. William . Da - vis has been spending some time recently In Isllp. W.

A SYNAGOGUE DEDICATED. Dr. Darlington Speaks at the Opening of a Hebrew House of Worship at Setauket. Setauket, L. I.. September 3 The new synagogue of the Society of A Goodes Achem was dedicated here last night with appropriate services. Hebrews and Christians from this and neighboring villages turned out in large numbers to attend the dedication. The new - house of worship stands on the main street and a short distance from the rubber works, where the greater number of members are employed. The exterior and front of the building was gay with bunting and colored lanterns last night and three great arches of green foliage spanned the gates. Rabbi Wise of New York officiated and was assisted by Dr. Dechman of the Sixty - seventh street temple and others. Dr. James il. Darlington, rector of Christ church, Bedford avenue, Brooklyn, was also present and made a brief address. The new edifice was not near large enough to accommodate those who desired admittance. The new building, known as tho A Goodes Acherm synagogue of Setauket, was built by the society of that name, organized about five years ago. The building. is not yet fully completed, but will bo by another week. It is very plain, of simple design and costs about $1,500 complete. It is 2 - 1x30 feet and of frame. The interior is celled with pine and lias a gallery extending across the end. It has sittings for about three hundred persons. Its members now number fifty - two. After handing the chairman cf the building cemmittee a generous contribution Dr. Darl - lngt'dn"cUmp,limented the officers of the church in completing a work which had required a year to finish and continued in part as follows: "Members of the A Goodes Achem society I come here to - night on your invitation, twice declined in person, to greet you as a neighbor and friend. Not that I agree with you in all your views or am any less a Christian minister and sincere believer of tho Christian faith, but I respect your venerable and most ancient belief as all Christians must who remember that the New Testament sprang out of and is based upon the bocks of Moses. As a Christian minister I owe you a debt of gratitude for the careful preservation of the pentateuch, the historical books and the greater and lesser prc - flcuous of the - Hagi - ographa. We differ as widely as possible on many points of belief, but there are equally as many we hold in common. We do not agree in same things in tho New Testament, yet In the Old Testament hold together and as a citizen of this community and for the time being residents of this country town it should be hard, indeed, if a clergyman and neighbor could not come and speak words of congratulation on the opening of your new synagogue. "I cannot speak of a corner stone as ycu use a log. But as Hiram, king of Tyre, sent solid and well hewn timber to King Solomon from the forest of Lebanon in the days of old, which remain perfect and intaot, you certainly have abundant ecclesiastical precedent if you need it to place any amount of timber In die. house of worship dedicated to - night to Jehovah. Tho Hebrew race has stood firm from the beginning as a people against Pantheclogy, Polytheism and Atheism, and as such all who believe with you in one God and one only, must rejoice to hear your toxt so often repeated in your synagogues, 'The Lord, our Gcd, is our Gcd.'

He says that tho trouble with the water of the city is due chiefly to the fact that surface drainage from the swamps and ponds is being used. The water from the driven wells is naturally filtered through the sandy soil of the island and when it is pumped up from the wells it is as pure as possible. Water from the stagnant ponds or reservoirs can never be as good as thitt pumped from wells or taken from the running streams. Even the farmers go to the trouble of drawing water from their wells for thelr cattle rather than let them drink the stagnant water from the ponds. SEA CLIFF YACHT CLUB'S SMOKER Sea Cliff, L. I..
