THE HOOD RIVER NEWS, WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 1911
What the Hood River District Land Co. Offers
In Ten Acre Tracts
To sell TEN ACRES at $500 or $G00 per acre, according to
location, on the following terms: 10 per cent cash and one
half of one per cent per month, with G per cent interest on
To clear the land and set to selected apple trees of stand
ard commercial varieties, and to care for same for five years at
the company's expense.
Argument No. 1
The benefits to the purchaser in following the above plan
are as follows: We send our experts direct to the nursery to
select each tree. An additional inspection is made by the local
fruit inspector, thereby securing a perfect tree.
Our employees are men who have been in the business for
ten years or more and who thoroughly understand setting out
trees. To illustrate: We dig a proper hole, mulch the ground,
pruning the roots and heading the tree properly. We protect
each tree with Yucca Tree Protectors. We cultivate the ground
every two weeks during the growing season, and care for the
property in a thoroughly expert manner up to the time we de
liver it to the purchaser.
Argument No. 2
This proposition enables the man or woman of small means
to retain his or her position and pay for the land out of their
monthly salary, securing for themselves at the end of five years
a piece of property that has doubled in value and should, com
paring with present returns on such property, make them in
dependent for the rest of their lives.
Argument No. 3
The sum and substance of the foregoing proposition is that
you loan THE HOOD RIVER D1SIRICT LAND CO. your
money, on the best of security, to develop their land, and at
the end of five years divide the profits, the purchaser taking
about two-thirds and the company retaining about one-third.

In Chicago western box apples are
reported to Ik aelling freely and ship,
meiits have been made from here In a
jobbing way lu the past few days ou
a large scale. Various southern and
southeastern markets are drawing
supplies from Chicago, anil the with

to be phenomenal for January. Ev

business who hag any apples to offer
and It Is declared that when the Jan

trade generally will lie surprised at
the reduction lu Chicago stocks.
In a Jobbing way prices for fancy

The Philadelphia market on box
apples Is lu fair condition, with a
satisfactory movement. A large box
apple dealer in speaking of the con
dition of the box apple market In
general aud the bearish reports and
arguments coming from some quar
ters said: "The best way to flud out
the real condition of the market Is to
go out and try to buy apples. I
haven't many apples on hand. In
fact, I am In the market to buy, and
while the statement cannot result In
any particular good to me, I must
say that the quotations I receive
lead me to ttcllcve that there Is no
such thing as really cheap apples to
Is' bought. The only possible excep
tion I would make would be for
Spit zenhurgs, but, as everyone
knows, these have been In unusually
large supply this season and neces
sarily sell low In comparison with
other varieties and their own usual

Interesting Address on Apples
Frank K. Wagner, member of the
distributing linn of (i. M. II. Wagner
& Sons, of Chicago, delivered an In
teresting nddress on "Box Apples"
the other day before the annual
meeting In Minneapolis of the Na
tional Icague of Commission Mer
chants. He said In part:
"The producing apple country may
In divided Into two parts, namely,
from Colorado east as a barreled
apple section and with Colorado ns
the eastern boundary of the box
"I feel that I am safe In assuming
that this division Is a correct appli
cation nt present, although we fre
quently And nnthorltles quoted In
our trade papers and from other
sources to the effect that It will not
Ih In the far future when the North
west will Ih lining barrels Instead of
boxes, and equally eminent authori
ties 'stating that at no far distant
date the Fast will be using boxes to
the exclusion of barrels.
"I am neither a prophet nor the son
of a prophet, but i am willing to go
on record as disagreeing with both
opinions, lu the Mrst place, the bar
rel seems to be the natural and most
available package in the eastern sec
tions, while In the West the box
seems to Is equally, by way of nat
ural usage aud economy, the Ideal
package. Tbe standard barrel now
In general use" neems to meet the ap
proval of the eastern buying public
by way of containing to their satis
faction tnree bushels of apples.
"The heaped bushel aud the three
bushel barrel as a commercial feature
will he hard to change by virtue of
Its long-established usage and tra
ditionary sentiment. Any good
banker will tell ui that any effort to
oppose the traditions of trade must
of necessity lower our credit, as such
opposition Is, as a rule, more or less
"From the fact that the north
western apples were first Introduced
In the eastern markets In boxes and
this package has leen consistently
maintained we may well assume
that, while more modern, this pack
age and custom Is equally tradition
ary and should be violated only with
due caution as to results.
"It Is evident that with the Incresse
In the volume of boxed fruit and Its
varying grade and quality, there Is
an Increased tendency to estimate Its
value In dollars and cents lu propor
tion to the aliquot part of a barrel
that It contains. This Is but nut-
nral, owing to the box is-lng prac
tically unknown ns a regular pack
age for apples previously to the last
few years; to the majority of eastern
consumers, while the barrel and
heaped bushel has been the natural
method of computation ever since
they have lieen marketed In the (.'til
ted States lu commercial quantities,
the present so-called standard barrel
being the outcome of the retailers'
demand for a 'liberal three-bushel
"There has been a misconception
on the part of many, not only as to
the volume of fruit produced In the
box states and the Influence on the
apple season's values that a crop In
that section means, but also as to
what really constituted grades and
quotations of the same, and In this
connection I will say that distance
has lent enchantment and has largely
tended toward an Iguoranee and dls
(ellef that Is q,ulte natural. Besides,
the advent of the box apple has been
gradual up to this season.
"The best apple sections In the
West considered lu previous sea
sons that only their fancy and extra
fancy grades and those of their lest
varieties were suitable for eastern
shipment, Isoldes their more western
markets have taken all the choice
grades and such varieties as are com
monly produced In the Fast and suf
fered the most by their comiK'tltlon.
"Sections of the West that pro
duced a quality that graded only on
a par with the East by way of color
nnd finish ulso found nearer and for
elgn markets accessible aud profit
able. These conditions have Influ
enced eastern operators In anticipat
ing western box apples to be uni
versally of the high order of grading
and excellence that in reallu per
tains only to favored localities, so
that It seems there Is still quite a
wide Held for the Introduction and
Utter understanding of boxed
'It Is unquestionably a fact that
the best localities and growers In the
West have Introduced fruit that In
Its excellence of grade, color and as
sortment, and attractiveness of
pack, has appealed to the discrimi
nating buyer as worth the advanced
price nsked and obtained for It, but
it must le borne In mind that the
market for fruit nt $2 ht box and
upward has serious limitations."
To Boost York State Apples
A Hochester dispute!1 to the New
York Pucker says that between 1,200
and 1.400 members of the Western
New York Horticultural society were
present at the fifty-sixth annual
meeting held In that city last week,
and that It was the most successful
In the long history of the organization.
The apple show c.ime up for Im
portant discussion. It was heartily
Indorsed by the convention and an
annual apple show, as outlined In
The Packer two weeks ago, Is prac
tically assured for Hochester. This
show will be somewhat similar to
the ones held In some of the western
cities ami will do everything possible
to make eastern apples as popular
It Is said that the most Interesting
program Mi" society ever nail was
carried out and that not only were
there scientific discussions of the
problems which confront the modern
horticulturist but also practical talks
by men who meet their problems
every day in t lie year on tneir own
