What Is needed is steady mar

As a sab' man of his own goods, the
grower of apple-, must consider the
whims and fancies of the retail buyer, .
for the consumer Is the court of last
reaort.The buyer may know le,.s about
the production of apples than she
known aliii'H the Angel Cihrl.-I. but
she known something of food valuea
and a lot about the value of the dol
lar. She knows a great deal about
raisins, oranges, bananas and pine-
j apples, because they represent the ar-
latocracy in fruit distribution, but ahe
knows little about the plebtan apple

HtorK Facilities Needed.
Fruit growera In Oregon muat re
main at the mercy of speculate and
cold atorage concerns until adequate
storage facilities ahall be provided at
points of production. Except at Hood

So long aa th grower muat force
his fruit on the market as soon aa he

Kvery indication, as Isee it, tends to
confirm my opinion, that orcharding

game. As in every other line uf ac
tivity, opportunity for the man of
small means is limited, and hla ex
pense of operation must be out of
proportion to the expense of handl
ing the large tract. One commuu-

orchard, aud the small owner must
become the worker in the orcard of
the corporation or the well-to-lo cit
Uen. Orchard antl Club.
An element which appears clearly
in the game of apple growing ami
selling in Oregon, ia the club, the
gathering place for men who operate
land aud propose to I apples on
a large scale. At i .nl lUver cm'
Medford large clubs are controlled
by men who are or think they are
in the apple game. Much of the
work of cultivation, care and mark
eting has been done by proxy antl
over the telephone These men
should be of great value in the de
velopement of the fruit industry, and
as soou as their financial resources
are exhausted aud they get down to
practical work they will be rightly
classed among Oregon's most suc
cessful citixeus and most enterpris
ing producers and skillful salesmen.
Small .nineties Not Successful
The day of the small canuery,
whether co-operatively or privately
owned, has gone by. The successful
canuery of the future must have a
wide field, good transportation fac
ilities and large output Quality
and quantity must go together in the
product of canneries in Oregon if
the growers of fruit used are to be
fairly compensated for their pro
ducts. Much of the canned goods sold at
