Hood River, Oregon
By W. II. Lawrencc. County Fruit Inspector
The presence of so many sadly neg
lected, diseased and oftentimes par
tially dead fruit trees, standing In
vacaut lotd and In the lawns, has a
very depressing effect iip.m visitors
and prospective purchasers of or
chard tracts. In fact it id not until
one has mnde a trip tnrough dome
portion of the valley and has actual
ly viewed the well kept orchards
that he recovers from the shock re
ceived In passing along the streets of
this city. Concurrent with the neg
lect of these treed, orchurd pests and
especially the Sau Jose scale have be
come very abundunt and have In
many cases so badly Injured many
trees and shrubs that It Is advisable
to destroy the plants. Now Is the
time for the property owners to co
operate In destroying all useless and
diseased plants and to spray the
ones which they desire to suve.
In removing all plants, especially
fruit trees, It id advised to dig them
out In order to destroy the roots
and prevent the formation of suckers
at a later date. All the rubbish must
be destroyed by burning as soon as
possible. Oreen apple wood will
burn as readily as when dry. Start
a hot fire by using some good dry
kindling. Destroying all plants use
less for fruit or shade Is by far the
easiest, cheapest and most effectual
method of "cleaning up."
After the destruction of the uude
slreable plauts atteutlon should be
directed to the proper pruning and
spraying of the plants which are
worthy of a place In the la wu, gar
den or vacant lot. Pruning should
preceed spraying. The one consider
ation In pruning Is to so shape the
plant that It will be possible to
spray It and spray effectively.
Since lliue-sulpuur wash has the
combined properties of both an In
secticide and fuuglclde, this material
Is the onlv one recommended for
early spring spraying, unless the
spraylug Is being done for some
specific trouble. The winter strength
1 1 part of lime-sulphur to '. to 10
parts of water) should be used and
the application made before the buds
begin to open. In case late spraying
becomes necessary there Is some dan
ger of injury to the fruit and foliage
of some plants.
While spraying there are several
things to bear In mind: . I'se a pump
that will develop 17." to 2M pounds
of pressure; Is'glu spraying In the
most dltlicult places to reach; spray
thoroughly so that every surface Is
coated and all the cracks, checks and
spaces behind the buds are splashed
full tif the spray. This can only be
done when an extension rod eight or
nine feet long with a 4." per cent
crook equipped with a noz.le which
will give a driving spray Is used. The
Bordeaux noz.le Is the best type for
this work. In spraying tall trees It
Is necessary to spray from a tower,
unless one climbs up In the tree. In
order that the upper surfaces of
limbs, buds and the angles between
the branches and stems nny be filled.
Since It will be necessary to spray
a majority of the plants In the city It
Is suggested that all persons desiring
the advice of an Inspector do so. It
Is hoped that all of the diseased fruit
trees and other plants Infested with
pests will have been destroyed or
thoroughly sprayed within the next
six weeks. Later, as time permits,
a careful Inspection throughout the
town will 1h made and additional
work necessary to secure complete
results will be done.

Burglaries lu private houses in Vi

locked from 10 o'clock at night to 0 In
the morning by order of the police. Ad
mission and exit between those hours
nre given by the house porter, who re
ceives a fee for unlocking the door
and Is bound to report to the police
the doings and mode of life of all the
Inhabitants of the house. This system
of lock money is tiresome, but In Vi
