EB DaWS 1ST IMPORT AN
GREENHOUSE VEGETABLE, SAYS CHASE
The Largest Growers of This Delicacy Are F. B. Chase &
Sons, Eugene and a Member of the Family and Firm
Gives Something, of the Methods and Dangers
Oregon's most important green
house vegetable Is tSe cucumber.
Even though the market is fairly
tfell supplied with thte semi-luxury
and is not expanding as rapid
ly as with many other lines, the
cucumber Is still in the lead.
One of the -principal problems
In cucumber; culture la the one of
developing a strain which is adapt
ed to local conditions . and ' de
mands. For this ' reason most
growers in the state are following
the practice of choosing their own
seed. )aris Perfect and the White
8pine types are the ones most fav
ored in Oregon. . .JjU- -v.,
- The most desirable type is dark
green In color, long and slender
and - of even diameter, with both
ends well filled out. .The best
grades are from Iff to ,14 inches
In length though seed cucumbers
of 18 incaes in length and 12-inch
circumference are not uncommon.
The better grades! have no diffi
culty in bolding their own against
inferior grades which are shipped
In from California where they are
grown out ; of doors. Usually
about 24 to 36 thousand cucum
bers are produced in a 40 by 200
foot bouse. !'.; : " ;
- : Methods of Training
Two methods of training , are
commonly used tn greenhouses.
The I most; common is that of
stretching parallel; wires about six i
feet above ; ; the ground in the
houes and running strings to the
ground to allow the vines to climb
to the overhead wires where they
are trelllsed. Thus most of '.ho
fruit grows; on the overhead vines
and is picked from below.
The second metnod of training
Is by mean of parallel wires form
ing an-A-shaped trellis The pick
ing Is done from Inside the trellis
while watering ie carried on in
the space . between the trellises.
That a j well planned system of
training ! the vines Is necessary

present recognized prosperity and who are ever striving
yet greater progress as the years go
may be guessed from the fact that
vines often reach the length of
30 feet or more. ;
The Watering System
The overhead spray system of
watering has succeeded the old
hand ' watering method in most
greenhouses, as it is found to give
more satisfactory results and al
the same time requires less labor.
By this method the foliage is kept
moist and the atmosphere is givec
a tropical .humidity which is very
favorable to the development of
the crop. A light sprinkling onct
a day keeps the air moist, and al
so keeps down insects and disease
to a considerable degree., j ; ' ;
The Principal Dangers
Three principal dangers beset
the -path of the greenhouse cu
cumber. ; The red spider eato parts
of the leaves and the plant event
ually dies from the effects. The
white fly has a somewhat similar
effect to that produced by the red
spider. Sprays or fumigation are
the only ways of killing the pests,
and both are difficult and danger
ous to the plants. Frequent spray
ing with water to keep the atmos
phere moist is the. best check to
The third enemy of the cucum
ber IS a jelly-like mold which at
tacks the main stems . and will
soon kill the plant unless remov
ed. The stem must then be kept
Generally speaking, the growing
of greenhouse cucumbers is an en
terprise which demands . constant
and careful attention if a. really
marketable and profitable product
i' to be obtained. Very truly
yours, . .., .

Permance of construction is an
item to which the homebuilder
today is giving particular atten
tion. Construction costs are at a
level from which no substantial
recession is in sight. It is today
more' than ever before important
that a house represent to the full
est a dollar for dollar value of the
money put into it. Flimsy, shod
dy construction with its excessive
rate of depreciation, is a luxury
that the average man can no-longer
afford, particularly when mod
ern science has made permance in
home building possible at but lit
tle more than the cost of frame.
' Prospective buyers . who "have
made careful inspection of thai less
permanent types of construction
offered for sale today are dismay
ed at the condition of these build
ings even when new. Sagged
! 'The San Diego,
floors, warped walls and cracked
plaster are common occurrences
and promise - speedy f and ' ; ever
mounting repair bills. ;
13 Per Cent Against 40
-. The possible resale lvalue of a
house is another. Item always
borne -in mind by the thoughtful
investor, who knows that sickness,
change of business or any one of
a dozen factors may make Unnec
essary or desirable to sell. And
with this in mind he figures that
a house constructed of burned clay
building material, on which the
depreciation Is less than 15 per
cent in 10 -years, is worth more: to
bim than the less desirable types
on - which the depreciation in the
same period will be 40 per cent or
As a result,, home buyers are
more than ever concentrating
their attentions on permanent, fire
resistive types of house construc
tion. The wise home builder of
today knows that a five per cent
increase in the cost of his bouse

in hard, cold cash and 1 start as
soon as the house is ready for oc
cupancy. The more important
savings are listed:

average, - ' -

1 (2) - Depreciation Appraisers
et the depreciation at two per
cent for brick houses and four per
cent for frame houses, but the de
depreciatipn does not begin with
a house constructed of burned clay
materials until the third or fourth
year. . , Saving in depreciation
means an annual saving of at
least $160 on an $8000 house.
(3) Heating Owners of hous
es built of brick or ' of hollow
building tile report savings in
fuel at from 25 per cent to 40 per
cent per year. In Salem, where
mo6t of us use wood, -this will
mean a saving of at least three
cords of wood per year, and, what

is always warm and comfortable
in winter; while in summer It is
cooler than the frame, house.
