County to Cooperate With Sawmill
Co. In Needed Work.
Klamath Falls Klamath county and
tho Meadow Lako sawmill company
are to build a macadam road from
Klamath Falls to the top of tho moun
tain on the old Fort Klamath road.
Tho work is to be done on a co-opera-
tivo plan, and ultimately the city may
Join in the combination.
Tho proposition mode to tho county
is that if tho county will furnish tho
rock crusher and ono man to care for
the machine, the Meadow Lnko Mill
company will haul tho rock, placo it on
tho road, roll it down and do all tho
balance of tho work in connection with
the building of a good roadbed without
other cost to the county.
The Meadow Lako peoplo nro mnklng
this ofTcr for the reason thnt tho coun
ty has given them the prlvilcga of run
ning n traction ongino over this road
to haul tha product of tho mill to mar
ket in this city. Tho rood leading out
of town toward Fort Klamath from tho
city limits to tho top of tho hill is ono
of tho worst pieces of road in tho
county during tho winter season. In
tho flat about a mllo outaido tho city
this road gets hub deep In winter and
it is almost impossiblo to got through
it with any kind of a rig during that
time of the year.

Paulhan's flight from London to

Curtlss feat for distance, but not in
speed or in dsnger. The Frenchman's
average was 44.3 miles an hour and
below him lay English meadow land,
Curtlss followed the winding course, (of
the historic xiuaaon, with jutting head

palisades. Ho swung high over tho

at times within 60 feet or tho river's
broad surface, and Jockeyed liko a fal

Only onco did his craft show signs
of rebellion. This was off Storm King,
near West Point, when, at a height of
nearly 1,000 feet a treacherous gust
struck his planes. The machine drop
ped 40 feet and tilted perilously, but
Curtlss kept his head and by adriot
manipulation restored tho equilibrium
of the machine.
With his eyes and brain cleared of
tho cobwebs of sleep, ho went with his
mechanician and a handful of specta
torn to Van Rcnnseiaer Island, in tho
Hudson, three miles south of Albany,
whero ho was to start, Waiting at tho
river brink waa a special train charter

Curtlss and her party. From tho train
they could not see tho actual start, but
those on tho Island witnessed a re
markable scene.
With the signal that Curtlss was off,
tho special train of five cars and a lo
comotive gathered Impetus and sought
to follow. But so quickly had ho flown
that for 21 miles the locomotive, run
ning nearly a mllo a minute, was un
able to catch up.

A Brief Description of the Disease
and Its Cure.
By H, S. Jackson, Oregon Agricultural Colleg-e.
Fire blight Is tho most serious of all
tho diseases which attack the pear and
apple. It Is a contagious disease of
bacterial origin which, under proper
conditions, may attack any part of tho
tree. Besides tho pear and apple, the
quince, wild crab apple, hawthorns,
mountain ash, scrviccberry and somd
other pomaccous trees are subject to
attacks of this disease.
Myriads of germs aro present In all
freshly blighted portions of tho treo
nnd in tho sticky ooze exuding from
cankers. The germs livo almost en
tirely tn tho sappy portion of the bark,
though in somo vigorous-growing vari
eties of pears tho germs havo been
known to Invade the sap wood to a
limited extent Firo blight occurs In
moro or less sevorlty in nearly nil
parte of tho United States whero
pears and apples are grown.
In Oregon firo blight has appeared
in two general localities ono In tho
Southwestern part of tho state, includ
ing tho Rogue River vnlloy, the othor
In tho Northeastern part.
Beginning in tha spring tho first ap
parent damage produced by tho dfaeaso
in an infected orchard is tho blighting
of tho blossoms. Infection is brought
about by insects, principally bees,
which havo visited a caso of hold-over
blight and becomo covered with the
organisms contained In tho sticky ex
udation, inoculating tho flowers in
their search for nectar. Tho organ
isms dlvldo and multiply in tho nectar
and aro able to enter tho living tissuea
through tho unprotected nectaries.
Having entered the tissues they quick
ly blight tho blossoms, pass down the
blossom-stem and into tho fruit spur,
killing tho tissues and cutting off the
leaves from water supply, causing
them to shrivel and dry, thus produc
ing "fruit spur blight." Tho latter
occurs several weeks after blosaom In
fection. In very serious cases nearly
all tho fruit spurs msy bo blighted in
this way nnd tho trees set no fruit.
Usunlly tho germs dio out nnd do not
grow Into tho twig or branch on which
tho spur occurs, but occasionally tho
germs may contlnuo Into tho bark of
tho branch at tho baso of tho fruit spur
and form a typical canker. Fruit spurs
on tho larger branches aro a fruitful
sourco of body infection and many
cases of blight canker originate In
this way.
Tho namo "fire blight" Is given to
this dlscaso because of tho characteris
tic appearance of pear foliage on twigs
or branches which havo been killed by
the organisms. The leaves turn black
as though scorched by fire and f re-
?uontly remain on the tree during the
ollowing winter. It should be' noted
that this color of tho foliage Is charac
teristic of tho pear when It haa been
killed during the growing season. If a
grower not familiar with the pear
blight desires to known how the "twig
blight" looks let him girdle a twig in
mid-summer and watch the results.
The cankers are also quite character
istic, but are very vsrlable in appear
ance. The disease progresses most
rspldly in the fleshy outer layer of the
bark and at first produces a watery
appearance in the affected area. Later
the tissues of the bark are more or less
broken down and the cankers become
dark in color.
Besides tho blight cankers found on
the limbs and trunks, ono frequently
finds In somo varieties of pears and
Spltzenberg apples a larger canker at
the surface of the ground extending up
on the trunk for somo distanco and
down tho largo roots. This condition
Is called "collar rot," and may result
from a blight canker
A pear tree when badly cankered Is
easily recognized at a distance in tho
early autumn by the general reddish
cast to tho foliage
On the apple the foliage of twig and
fruit spur blight turns brown and dry.
One of tho most fruitful sources of
infection has been by tho pruning
shears or saw. In pruning, if an
active canker is cut Into, tho tools be
come Infected nnd servo us Inoculating
Instruments to spread tho disease.
The only method known of control
ling fire blight is to cut out all cases
of cankers wherever they appear.
Spraying with fungicides Is of only
supplementary value and tho various
blight cures are worse than useless.
Experience has shown that it is of
little permanent value to attempt to
cut out the fruit spur and twig blight
aa they appear. Unless these forma
of the disease extend Into the branches
on which they occur and a canker is
formed the disease usually becomes
naturally limited and the germa gradu
ally die.
The efforts of the grower should be
directed to cutting out all cases of
blight canker and body canker during
the fall, winUr and early spring, when
the cankers have become more or less
limited in their growth and are not
actively spreading.
Summer cutting is intelligently ap
plied is frequently of great value,
particularly where there is only a little
blight In the autumn before the
leaves fall is a good time to do the cut
ting, aa all cases of twig blight are
easily observed. '
The trees should be particularly ex
amined for cases of the collar rot. It
is this form of the disease that causes
many trees to be killed outright
In cutting out cankers it is neces
sary that tho tools be Kept moist
with some good disinfectant If this
is not done each cut will reineeulate
the germs Into the bark at the edges
of the canker and the labor may thus
be useless.
Corrosive sublimate in a sehttlea of
one part to one thousand of water haa
been found to be the meat satisfactory
disinfectant The solution is a vieleat
poison. It must be kept ia glass. '
