Spraying ami Attempting to Get a
Good, Clean Crop Ttils Tear.
The Fotae-Payette Fruitgrowers'
union, which was organised here a
short time ago. is doing a groat deal
of active work toward having an ex
ceptional clean fruit Corp this season'
and this week received a carload of
arsenic of lead for spraying purposes.
This spray is for the especial purpose
of killing the codlln moth and will be
sold to the consumer at less than the
average wholesale prire.'tho rata be
ing about 25 cents for 50 gallon' of
spray, which is less than half the
price heretofore paiJ, Bays the EoWe
The fruit crop, as near as can be es
timated at this time, promises a heavy
yield this season, and the fruitgrowers
will spare no pains in having the best
quality of fruit that It Is possible to
raise. ' An Informal meeting of a nun
ber of the members of the Joard was
held yesterday afternoon In the cham
bers "of the Commercial . club, those
present being Judge Wood, Charles
Payne of Parma, C. C. Elffe of Pay
ette, and C. J. Slnsel. The question
of boxes, crates, baskets and paper
was discussed at some length and It
was found that excellent quotations
had been offered the union on the
large amount of material which will
be needed. The union, buying as a
whole, is able to save a large percen
tage to the fruitgrower, both In prices
that a greater profit will be realized
from the fruit business than has here
tofore been made.
