THE HOOD RIVER NEWS, WEDNESDAY,
MARCH 12, 1913
The doctor's work is only half
what has to be done for the pa
tient. And if the druggist be
lacking in ability and care the
prescription might as well have
never been written. But we
make a special study of each case
and our own medical knowledge
is thorough enough to be of great
use to us in those sometimes oc
curring cases when the doctor,
in his haste, makes a slight error.

WORK ATTHE O.A.C.
In the biennial report of the Board
of Regents of the O. A. C. just pub
lished are contained reports of the
different department for the year
1900-1912. Included in them la the re
port of James Wlthycombe, director
of the experiment station, on horticul
tural Investigations. From this are
taken the following extracts:
Apple Tree Anthracnote
The work under this project has
heretofore, namely Investigation of the
life history of the fungus causing an
thracnose has been discovered. The
disease has been found as a parasite
upon the quince, an hitherto unreport
ed host. Spraying experiments have
been carried on now for two years in
the Wallace orchard at Salem, which
had been seriously affected. After
spraying for two years, the disease is
almost completely eradicated and pos
itive recommendations can be made,
not only to hold the disease in check
in slightly affected orchards, but to
clean a badly diseased orchard.
Satisfactory progress has been made
in the investigation of pollination dur
ing the past year' and much material
has been collected for future study.
The pollenation in the field for the
determination of mutual affinities was
this year conducted on a somewhat
limited scale. It seems that this phase
of the work Is about completed and
future endeavors will be directed tow
ard verification of past results. The
work so far has more or less definitely
shown that It Increases the percentage
of set; the uniformity of the fruit, and
the size, considerably, by the use of
a pollenlzer over none at all. In self
sterile varieties these Influences are
distinctly marked, as well as favor
ably influencing the setting of
fruit. This work has also definitely
shown that color is not influenced by
pollenation, but by orchard practices,
such as cultivation, pruning, fertiliza
tion, etc. It has also shown that the
banding and triping of fruit is not
due to pollenation, but to bud varia
tion. In field studies of pollenation the In
fluence of frost In fruit setting- is es
pecially noticeable with pears. Thus
it would be Interesting to know If It
is possible for fruit to be fertilized
after it has been subjected to a light
It has also been noticed that many
fruits recorded as self sterile, or but
partially self sterile will set quite
abundantly when pollenated by their
own pollen if aphis are present in the
The work in pollenation also in
cludes a study of fruit bud formation
and Initial development of the young
fruit from a histological rather than a
morphological viewpoint. This study
Includes a large amount of microscopic
work, representing 1500 slides. The
work also includes a study of the vas
cular system of young fruit. It is
thought that much of the failure in'
fruit setting is due to some defect In
Effect of Irrigation
Complete analysis of thirty-five sam
ples of apples were made last season In
connection with the irrigation expert
ments of the department of horticul
ture. In carrying out this work about
430 analytical determinations were
made. The principal results obtained
from the chemical study of the ripen
ing of the apples may be summarized
The percentage of moisture Is
greater and total solids less In the ir
During the ripening period there is
a gradual decrease In the percentage
of total solids in the unirrigated apples
while there Is a gradual Increase In
the Irrigated apples.
The percentage of cane sugar Is as
a rule greater In the Irrigated, while
the reducing sugar and total sugar are
greater in the unirrigated apples.
The changes in the composition or
the different samples during the stor
age period were markedly parallel, the
samples grown with irrigation not dif
fering to any extent from samples
grown without Irrigation.
HEAVY PLANTING AT DUFUR
The Dufur Orchard Co. Is making
preparations to soon begin the spring
work of preparing ground.setting trees
etc. They expect to employ In all
about 60 men during the summer, 10
of whom will be employed to replant
the trees which have died and the
rest will be at work preparing ground
and setting out new tracts. The com
pany expects to prepare and set out
about 1,000 acres of trees this spring.

PLENTY OF TIMBER
There is plenty of local timber for
the position of district attorney of the
county, which office was created by
the recent Legislature to take the
place of the district attorney who has
had charge of all three counties
In the past. Governor West will make
the appointment and the office will be
gin three months after the close of
legislative session. Friends of several
local attorneys have taken some action
In their behalf. Those whose names
are being mentioned include the fol
lowing: John Baker, E H. Hartwig,
A. P. Reed, E. C. Smith and G. R. Wil
bur. Mr Baker was deputy district at
torney up to the time of his resigna
tion recently. Mr. Hartwig was form
erly mayor of the city; Mr. Reed Is a
member of the law firm of L. A. & A.
P. Reed; Mr Smith made a strong
showing when a candidate for the
nomination as district attorney in the
election last Fall, while Mr. Wilbur
has the advantage of being the only
Democrat so far enlisted among those
willing to accept the appointment.
PACKING APPLES TO MUSIC

orchestra in his peach-packing house,
in order to get a greater output from

force of packers agreed to keep up
with the pickers, but every evening at
quitting time there was a great quan

work after supper In order to catch up.
After about ten days of contiuous
packing from 7:30 In the morning until
about 9 o'clock at night, with only
two hours off for dinner and supper,
the packers were about worn out, or at
