The ounual teachers' Institute for

lu Villard Hall, beginning at 0 o'clock
a m Tuesday, September fclh 1S9C, and
continuing the session three days.
A full eors of noted Instructors have

There are about two hundred licensed

quires that each teacher shall attend

wide-awake teachers will consider it a
duty they owe the profession as well
as themselves to attend. If we can

teachers we can have the most Inter

put his or her shoulder to the wheel
and help roll up the desired attend
ance. A suitable program will be prepared

WHAT DOES THIS 11EAS?
Can the Mutter of Cultivating Fruit
Trees be Overdone.
The only full crop of fruit to be
found on tho Umpqua river this sea
son, so a resident of that section says,
Is on the orchard of Mr E Weaver,
whose place Is lust below Myrtle creek.
For some reason, he neglected to prune
orcultivato his orchard for twoyeais,
and now he has a tine crop of fruit,
while his neighbors, who pruned aud
cultivated, have no fruit at all. An
other somewhat similar case is re
ported from near Eola, Polk county.
J W West, a Clatsop county dairyman
has a fruit ranch near Kola, and
through Bomo misunderstanding in
regard to boundaries, when setting out
bis orchard, he got one row of silver
prune trees on another man's land.
When the boundary question was set
tled, he had to move his fence, and
left his row of trees outside. These
trees have not beeu cultivated ol lute,
and th's year they are loaded with
fruit, while Mr West's orchard, which
has been pruned and cultivated, bears
no fruit at all. These two eases are
giving food for thought to many or
chardlsts, who begin to think that the
cultivating and stimulating business
can be overdone. It has beeu said
by some that If the trees are too high
ly cultivated, they would blossom too
early, ond then comes n frost a nip
