AND COUNTY AGREE
At a conference held In this city the
last of the week an agreement was
reached In'tween representatives of
theO.-W. R. & X. Company and the
county court as to where the road
around the rock point this side of
Shell Rock will be located. This was
the only point of dispute between
the railroad and the county.
tiovernor West was at first Inclin
ed to Insist that the railroad move
Its tracks towards the river suhV
lently to permit the road to pass be
tween the tracks and the rock on
the same grade.
At the meeting here last week Chief
Engineer (Jeorge W. 15osclike and At
torney Wilson, counsel for the rail
road were present. They were met
by County Judge Culbertson. I ounty

committee appointed by the Com
Mr. Boschke showed that the Col
umbia River at a point dfrectly
north of the tracks at that point Is
123 feet deep and that a fill could not
be constructed. He stated that the
railroad would grant a right of way
around the rock at a point ten feet
above the railroad tracks.
After due deliberation the county
court agreed to this arrangement as
U'lng the test that could lie expected
under the circumstances. It Is be
lieved that It will be satisfactory to
Governor West, although It will
mean an expense of about $2."H) to

FROM SOIL SURVEY
Many practical benefits are ex
pected from the tvjll survey which is
now under way In this valley. The
work of the I'edral Bureau of Soils
under this head Includes a careful
classltlcatloa under Held conditions
of all the soils In a given area, the
materials lielng studied to a depth
of six feet. They are separated and
classified after a careful study of the
surface soils and subsoils to deter
mine their physical properties and
their adaptation to crops to which
climatic conditions of the region sur
veyed are favorable. F.acu type of
soil Is fully described In a report and
the location and exteut of the soil
areshowu on a map printed In col
ors. The physical properties, origin
suitability for agriculture, range of
crops for which it may le used, and
the cultural methods under which
the most profitable returns can lie
secured, are fully set forth. Such Im
portant facts as the quantity and
kinds of Injurious alkali salts which
may be present, drainage conditions
aud Irrigation problems are carefully
Investigated and recommendations
made whereby advantage may be
taken of the favorable conditions
and the unfavorable may be ovei
come. Areas of alkali land are out
lined In a map and suggestions given
for their reclamation.
The classification of the soils of a
state Is an essential preliminary step
In the establishing of seed testing
and plant breeding stations, enabling
experimenters to give definite and
accurate Information regarding crop
production on the various types
through the state. The Information
made available by soil survey work
eliminates the possibility of locating
such breeding stations on local soil
types not representative of the main
agricultural lauds of the state and of
securing results which can uot be
applied with assured success.
Careful inquiry conducted by the
Pureau ol Soils has clearly demon
strated that certain soil types are
best adapted to particular crops orse
rles of crops and that such crops reach
greatest perfection In that particular
soil environment. The planting of
these crops on soils differing from
their accustomed habitat requires a
readjustment of the fuuctlons of
plant growth to meet the new envi
ronment and frequently results In so
checking their growth as to cause
either a partial or total failure of the
An effort was made during the past
summer by the Missouri State board
of Horticulture to co-oerate with

disposal of their crop. Many of those
who have orchards are not well situ

markets, and are In Isolated places

There Is much variability In the
chemical composition of arsenate of
lead, as was previously shown. How
ever, in the proportions used in spray
ing there Is always enough arsenate
present to poison the delicate, newly
hatched worm. It Is the physical
condition, the flocculenee, the ability
to stay In suspension, that counts
most In selecting a brand of lead.
Arsenate that has dried out Is less
flocculent and, therefore Is less valu
able s a codling moth spray, al
though its arsenic content remains
the same as liefore. The most effect
ive strength of arsenateof lead seems
to be one pound to fifty gallons.
Tills st rengt h lias proved satisfactory
In practice In the orchards where It
has iM-eti used.
Apple Holdings Reported
Apple holdings In the I 'lilted States
are estimated at this time to be In
round numbers .'dH),0W barrels and
4H,00 to 4."0,(KK) boxes. Last year at
this time stocks were about 100,000
tarrels and Sil.OOO boxes.
Considerable complaint Is heard on
account of the fruit not keeping well
but the same trouble has been ex
perienced right through the season.
It Is thought that the hot dry sum
mer of 1!)11 In some of the apple pro
ducing sections kept the fruit from
developing keeping qualities anil on
this account large quantities of np
ples have Ikti lost.
