The meeting won decided upon last
week when District Inspector 11. II.
' Weatherspoon got in touch with the
110 authorities Fire blight has
caused much damage in this section
this year, and. while II Is not general,
and the disease does not affect every
orchard, In some localities It has cut
down the yield. Last year the
blight was much more pronounced
in Malheur county than It la thla
year. Inspector Ornmse has con
duct ml a very effect Ive campaign In
this county thla summer, and as a
result fire blight Is fast becoming
a thing of the past.
Mr. Weatherspoon claims (hat lire
blight can bo entirely stamped out.
the only effective method of exter
mination being to cut away the In
reeled limbs and parts of the tree.
He has successfully exterminated tho
blight In Union County, which was
one of the flrst counties of eastern
Oregon to become affected. Whole
orchards In. Uulon county had to be
cut down when a successful yay to
combat the disease was discovered.
Work of extermination In this dis
trict will be commenced soon after
the meeting in October, aud It la
hoped that next season there will be
very little fire blight in evidence.
