"The executive hoard of the Hood Hlver Apple Grower' I'uloli 1h an representative a liody of as repre sentative an organization as one could well lind the country wide. So successful has t he union lieen since Its Inception that It has served as a model for numerous other organl.a tloim In various sections of. the I'nl- ! ted States. Crop after crop has been handled with complete success, de spite the varying conditions that ! every different season brings. Nat urnlly. the problem Is getting harder anil harder to solve with every sue feeding year. Hood Hlver no longer holds a monopoly of tine quality fruit. There are other districts In the Northwest that grow just as per feet apples, and other districts that today are hotly contesting for the apple championship belt. It is rldic ulous to suppose that Hood Hlver has the same hold on the consump tion and on the trade that It had some years ago. The apple Industry In the Northwest has developed to such a degree that Hood Hlver to iday must take Its chance In the con- I test with other sections turning out equally line fruit, and the grower j who Imagines that the Hood Hiver I apple will sell on its name alone ami j Is not susceptible to ordinary mar I ket conditions, cannot see beyond the confines of his own orchard. "Were It not for the enormous amount of publicity secured by the clever maneuvers of the New York fruit firm which for the past few years has had the entire distribution of the union's crop, the job this year of getting prices satisfactory to the growers might have been a bit harder, and it Is to be remembered that this publicity so advantageous to the Hood Hiver grower, while en gineered absolutely by the New York concern, was at the same time more j fully secured by the clever coopera I thin of the union's board of directors "The arguments presented by Mr. j Sproat, an reprinted In last week's I guide, are iron clad lu their Invulner- ai.tiity. uitentimes wnat is one man's meat Is another man's poison, and the union's board of directors certainly showed some shrewd sales, manshlp when they sold to Stein hardt & Kelly, of New York, a large block of apples that made good money for the sellers, but certainly none for the purchasers. It was an open secret among the trade tha) Stilnluir.lt A.

Whatever may be said of the pur chaser' Judgment, the judgment of the board of directors making the sale would appear to be lieyond as sault, particularly a It was no easy matter to get hold of a linn that was as nervy a It was llnaiielally re sponsible, ami was both willing and APPLES DELIGHT PENNSYLVANIANS The Milllinburg Telegraph, a I'eiin sylvania paper make the following Interesting comment on soms of the Hood Hlver apple neiit to that city hy I.. M. Karstetter, a Hood Hiver enthusiast. "One day last week Comrade Mar tin (J. Heed wan the recipient of a box full of apple from Hood Hlver, Oregon, expressed to him by his friend. Mr. I.. M. Karstetter, of that place, formerly of till section. And such npples! Well, we never saw anything lu that line to equal, much les to surpass them for good si.e, for beauty, freedom from faulty spots and delicious tateand tlavor. They are a perfect a can lie and range In weight from 11 to 14 ounce. If there I such a thing as "fancy apple," these certainly are worthy the prize. Yes. Pennsylvania must bow her knee to the Hood Hlver Valley of Ore gon In the matter of apple raising. In a letter to Mr. Heed, Mr. Kar stetter says of their section a fol lows: "We have had beautiful weather for over a month. Chinese pheasants are crowing, native pheasant hum ming, blue grouse hooting, hundreds ofjother birds singing, and a wonder ful profusion of wild flower bloom ing and everything lovely. Naturally we are all well ami happy."

If the story Is true It would le better to have sent the npples to the cider mill and If It isn't, it's up to the tipple growing Interests here to have It denied. The Journal says: "Hood Hlver Is Hooding the local market with Yellow Newtown apples, and sales are generally being made at lower prices. Some of the shipments coming from the premier district are of such poor quality that in normal season they would not be allowed on sale. At this time they are bringing from $1.:?." to $1. '." a box. Outside of the Newtowns few va rieties are now offering In the local trade, and sales can only be made at slightly reduced figure. Hen Davis' show quite fair quality, and these are generally ranging around ?1.2"i a box." In cas-s of rheumatism, relief from lain makes sleep and rest possible.

It would be dlllicult to see In what regard the management of the union during the season In which the box apple problem has been partlcu larly arduous, could have been bet ter ; and the ludicatlon of the board's policies during this season by the vote of April shows that the hard headed farmers of t he Val ley, who know a hawk from a hand- I saw, took thlsvlcw of the matter.1 I'he tribute to the board was a fine ... i one, ami no set ot men could iiae asked for a more Impressive tribute of eonlhlence than was accorded.
