The trade of the fiffij -extends not only-ttifoughbut the- United States, Canada, Germany, Prance, Italy, Hungary and other for* eigh countries, but it has a number of customers both in New Zealand and Australia, Eighty years ago there came from Kentucky to Pike county the late judge Stark, then a young matt fresh from Old Hickory's New Orleans cam* paign. He started the nursery and planted the first grafted orchard In the state, having brought the scions on horseback from Kentucky, The business, has descended from father to son, and Is now conducted by the third generation, assisted by the fourth, This firm has more than 1,000 traveling solicitors, and employs more people in Its offices than would be necessary to run a large manufacturing concern; The extensive packing-houses ol the company are adjacent to the city, connected wfth. the failroad^y special tracks.' From these packing-houses hundreds of carloads of trees are shipped annually. The vmrsery grounds embrace a number of farms convenient to the city, and even extends to Rockport, 111., where there is a plant of several million trees. The peculiarity of the concern Is the establishment of large orchards. These orchards in 24 states aggregate nearly 50,000 acres, and more than 3,500,000 trees on the partnership plan. The firm is also interested In as many more trees On the co-operative arrangement. The nurseries have been beneficial not only-to their home, but Missouri owes no little of her prestige as a fruit- growing region to the progress and work of development of this firm. The exhibits of this firm, whenever made, attract great attention/and do much to advertise the state. The firm i?ays large amounts for new varieties of fruit, and conducts the largest business of the kind in America, if not in the world.- . Louisiana firms have more traveling men upon the road for them than travel out of any other city of the world of its size. This^of course, is. largely due to the large number of men employed by the Stark Bros. Nurseries, who furnish their men the most complete, up- to-date outfit ever issued. They are Increasing their force of salesmen dally und room for more. '"TEMPERANCE. The extent to which brewers control the retail liquor business of New York was manifested under the Raines liquor tax law, May 1, when one brewer filed application for 700 certificates, another for 300, and another for 150. a total of 1,150, aggregating in money ?920,000.
