Almond Cream is a preparation that heals faster
than winds can roughen. If neglected, face and
hands can hardly keep from roughening in cold,
raw weather. They can't keep from being smooth
if you rely on Almond Cream. It heals quickly
because it's entirely absorbed. For the same rea
son there's no grease ' or stickiness to annoy.

Fruit Groivet-x' Association.
The Northwest Fruitgrowers' Associa
tion was in session in Portland on Feb
rile rv 5, 6 and 7.
Vuere was a display of very fine ap
ples in the hall including many varie
ties. There were some especially nice
ones of Uano and Saloam ; and som
boxs of very good evaporated prunes.
William uorecti had an exhibit of re
markably nice French walnuts and
grafted walnut trees, grown at his place
at Hill-dale. He had two-year-old gafts
that were wonderful for thrift and size.
He stated that he had four-year-old
trees that bore quite a crop
On Tuesday afternoon E. L. Smith
gave a very Interesting talk on "The Ao
ple." When Mr. Smith talks he all
ways has something to say and says it
in eucll a manner that it is a pleasure
to listen to him. He Bp ke about the
great loss from planting too many varie
ties. This with unsuitable locations
and poor care he estimates makes full v
50 per cent loss tojfruit growers. He

down to 20 good ones, and then to four
as the best Yellow Newton, Spitzeu
burg, Jonathan and Graveustein.
Quite a discussion followed as to varie
ties, cul'ivation, etc. Some recommend
Rome Beauty, Ben Davis and Gano.
Mr. Davis said selling Ben Davis was a
fraud and deceit as tli" nice looking ap
ples were not what they appeared.
Prof. Van Detnan joinjd in the dis
cussion. While he agreed with Mr.
Smith, he said the fact still remained
that Ben Davis was the money-making
apple of the country. He recommended
the Gano very highly. Prof Van De
man gave an instructive talk on cultiva
tion, conditions, climate, etc. He said
killing wedi was not the only object of
cultivating, but one main object was to
save moisture. The drier we could get
the top of the ground the more moisture
we could keep below, on the same prin
ciple that we wrap icrf in a dry blanket
l ktMp from ratling; or tlu smoother
we make the top the less surface is ex
posed fur evaporation.
He stated that we could not water
trees through the leaves. He said fruit
is c mipssed largely of water and the
more water we can get into it the beltei.
as the fruitgrowers' business is not to
nine seed, but to sell waier, well colored
and well flavored This, in the form of
good fruit would bring m ire than the
best crop of wheat ever raised. It had
been estimated 1 rge auple tree in full
leaf and fruit would pump out of the soil
four hundred gallons of water in a day.
