Second Generation of Cod
ling Moth Due and War is
Now in Order
I .. ' ;l Apple growers 1 are up t6 , the
k time when they need to spray
i their trees for the second crop of
codling moth. If they expect to
I Bare their crop. This spraying
needs to be done not later than
the first of August, to be folly ef-
fectlve. (i Every day earlier counts
for bushels of apples when harv
est time comes.' - , ,
: The first crop of moths has
1 been either killed or let get past
the .reachable stage. The moths
now coming but are the second
i brood. They are.: easy to get,
' with an arsenate or lead spray,
: fire pounds to 100 gallons of wa-
ter. It Is suggested that any one
'm having really good apples, may
need to be especially solicitous,
for there are , so " many deserted
orchards that were killed or ruin
ed in the big freeze two years ago,
and they have been allowed to
become terribly infested. Every
decrepit tree that produces the
gnarllest fruits. Is still a good
breeding place for the moths to
' infest the whole country.
'It has been suggested by good
orchardlsts, that it would be a
. boon to the fruit business of the
valley if everybody with alot of
- hopeless apple trees, would at
t once cut them out. They look dls
' tresslng. ana Harm the val
f'ley in sales values of farms; yet
they are absolutely hopeless, now
a nd foreverraore.
Most apple growers whose trees
were damaged left the trees stand
ing hoping that they would recov
er and save the years of tree
growttrthat they had made before
4 the freeie.: But thejK won't do It.
and the' sooner they ' aVe, dragged
out the sooner-the fruit business
pp can recover" Some trees were un
': harmed, and these are promising
, a tine crop, but the ragged trees
that have no hopes for recovery,
' are a pest to-themselves and a
menace to all the other -orchards;.

Fruit Grower ! with Large

Illustrating what Is happening
all over the Willamette valley.
Henry Vandevort of Salem is
building a ten-tunnel prune dryer
on ha (farm in Polk county, to
handle his own crop ' of prunes.
It. will have a capacity of 500
bushels of prunes a 'day, and It
is to run only on the owner's own
crop, which Is estimated at. from
10,000 to 12,000 bushels.
"It's too great a risk to trust
to I some? other dryer handling
them after a long haul, and so
we're doing the whole thing right
at home." iatd Mr. Vandvort.
"The time and cost and risk' of
hauling the fruit outside makes
It seem hotter to build. Many
others are doing the same ithlng
through the valley. The crop is

will be larger year by year as the

T. B. Jones Makes Success
ful Effort at Pumping ;
. Water on Farm
T. D. Jones of Salem, who has
a fine farm on the Mission both
torn north of town, is trying Irr li
gation for his 65-arre hop field
as a substitute for the rain that
will not .rain.
Mr. Jones has a Cleveland
traetor, and with a 4-inch hand
centrifugal pump, made by the
Salem Iron works, he is setting
in to irrigate as much of this hop
field aa he can get it to cover.
He says that he put it off too
long, having started pumping only
about a week ago. but he believes
the water has already had a no
ticeable effect on the crops that
have been reached.
Mr. Jones says that he Is snrv
prised at one thing the way the
water will run in the ditches.
It has been said that the Willam
ette valley roils genenfly will
not carry water that the water
Will seep away before having
much of a chance to spread. But
he believes that even in the loamy
soil of the Mission bottoms he
can run a stream from a four
Inch pump' for a full half mile.
He has rather exceptionally fav
orable water conditions, in that
the river backs up into his ptece,
into a slough, and he has to
pump only about IS to 20 feet in
height. He is using kerosene for
fuel, and pumptng steadily all
day, but up to the present baa
not kept account cf the cost, or
of the quantity of water pumped.
"But I believe it will pay." he
says. "These crop . that need
more water, than tij?v get during
an ordinary season can be Insured
with a little additional water that
is In most places easy to ' get.
We've been overlooking some
thing here in .the Willamette val
ley, that we need to know
use." - . , :
