true when containers are umm! more

he light In weight hut sulllcleiitly dur-

Slxe. The size of n container de-
pends upon the desires of the custom
ers. Most persons wish to obtain small
iiuuutltles of each product nt a time.
Containers should be Just large enough
for the produce shipped. If the carton
i Is too large or too small both the
pnsluce and the container are likely
to be damaged for the produce will i
not he kepi In place und the coutiilner
will be crushed. The larger the iimpi-
tlty of produce shipped In one parcel
the lower will he the cost per pound
for transportation nnd thu lower the
container cost per pound.
Appearance. A conlulner s' mild

Of cotire new containers are more
attractive than those which hnve
been used; nnd only those second-
hand containers which lire clenn .

Cost. The cost of containers puts u
distinct limitation on small shipments
of farm produce. A shipment must
have considerable vnlue In order thnt
the transportation charges nnd cost of
container mny not (stml u large per-
centage of the price. The price which
enn hi1 reusnnnbly paid for a container
will depend on tho vnlue of the con-

the prce received for the produce ns
