OUR GK WHO SPECIALIZE 1
HI9H GRADE APPLES ARE SUCCESSFUL
With Our Canning Industry and at the Rapid Rate Oregon's
. Population Is Increasing, the Time Is Not Far Distant
When the Entire Production of the Willamette Valley Will
Be Required to Meet the Local Demand
Editor Statesman:-. -.
You have asked roe, what of oar
apple Industry and what the fu
ture Is.
v la the first place, our apple In
dustry is only one of our great di-
. .... . ... I J ; . i
few growers in the Willamette
alley, comparatively speaking,
who specialize in growing apples
for high grade commercial pur
poses. Those who do have been suc
cessful.and I hope you have some
comments from some of these
growers. The Oregon Apple com
pany of Monroe, with over 400
acres under the very capable man
agement of B. W. Johnson, has
proved this in every way from
production to, quality and net re
turn. Other 'on n smaller 'scale
show .the tut m -reutt.
Better care of, the acreage that
we now have will make the Indus
try bigger, and, while market con
ditions are especially bad this sea
son owing to the' tremendous crop
all over the continent, there is
nothing to discourage the apple
grower of the Willamette valley.
. With the canning Industry
which we have here and at the
rapid rate Oregon's population is
Increasing, the time is not far dis-
tant when the entire production
required ' to meet the local de
mand.
EDW. S. BIEHN.
Salem, Oregon,
Nov. 19, 1926.
"Worth Keeping
Mr. Biehn is one of the best
Judges of apples in the Salem dis
irict, and one of the most enthus-
lastic men in any way engaged inlarowers. They "nave, lived on their
the apple industry here. He has
been buying apples, for various
concerns, for a long. time.
He has frequently told the Slo
gan - editor something like this:
'The man with a good apple or
chard here was something worth
keeping and keeping up
He says the local demand now
takes practically, all the good ap
ples raised here, and it is growing
fast; and if the growers had facil
nTeV f

market as neeaea, tne local mar-1

OntstandiBft: Orchards
Mr. Biehn mentions ln his letter
bove' the outstanding orchard' of
e valley, that of the Oregon Ap
pie company, Monroe, under the
management of B. W. Johnson;
nearly 400 acres. Markets under
the OACO brand. ?
(In a former Slogan issue of
The Statesman, Mr. Johnson recommended-
for the Willamette val
ley these varieties; Winter Ban
ana Grimes Golden. Ortley - and
Newtown; and on the heavier and
richer soils the King of Tomp
kins County;, for a red variety,
the Red- Rome, He said, that
while we can grow the Jonathan
and Spitzenberg, the white varie
ties seem better adapted to our
soil and climate and evince a tend
ency to more consistent -annual
cropping.)
The stockholders of this com
pany are largely men connected
with th Orpron A gricnWural 'col
lege. Tliey arc producing great
apples.
Mr. Biehn has heretofore men
tioned the work of Dr. P. H. Jobse
of Wilsonville. In 1923 from 88
trees he pieked 10? 6 boxes (bush
els) of Gravensteins, and they net
ted him at the orchard $777. They
were sold loose in boxes; no pack
ing charges. They went to a Port
land jobber, who bought them on
the tres, and he declared that it
was the fjnest fruit he had ever
seen bar none. In 1921 Dr.
Jobse sold the Winter Bananas
from 50. of his trees for 11052 net
profit. They went as high as
$2.80 abox f.o.b. Wilsonville.
J. F. Forbis &' Son of Forest
Grove are successful growers.
They produce Jonathan, Spitz and
Delicious; good size and quality.
A. W. Botkins and C. A. Jacques
of Estacada are successful apple
orchards; raise Jonathans. Spitz,
Newtown. Ortley and Mcintosh
Red varieties..
Billy Sullivan, ; former-catcher
for the White Sox, has at Newberg
a 40-acre apple orchard, where he
lives. He raises I principally the

THIS WEEK'S SLOGAN
DID YOU KNOW that Salem is and will always be an ;
apple center; that this is a natural apple country; that it
will always be one of the best apple markets in the Pa
cific Northwest because of the great demand for the .,,
snu'il and cheaper grades and the culls and by-products
in manufacturing here; that for the fancy varieties and
grades it is as good as any, and in a few of the fancy ;
varieties our growers excel mose in tne Dest advertised
districts; that for these reasons, Salem will maintain her
lead? and some cf the greatest commercial apple orchards
of the future will be located in the Willamette valley,
because we produce the best flavored apples in the
wcrld; and that there is room for more intelligent and
painstaking apple growers here?

IS OF GENTLER SEX
That Is, Salem's Prototype
of Historic Character;
Strange Career
During National Apple Week in
New York, William McCullough,
an actor, impersonated the unique
character of "Johnny Appleseed,"
and, dressed in costume, retraced
the territory traversed by the or
iginal "Johnny," planting apple
seeds along the way, just as did
the original.
In this "connection, it may be
mentioned that we also have a
seed planter in the person of Mrs.
Florence Matthes, of Salem, Route
Nine, who plants apples, pears,
and berry seeds wherever she
finds unoccupied dirt, and, from
plantings in various woods pas
tures in the Quinaby and Claxter
neighborhoods, -there are now
trees bearing fruits.
The enclosed clipping from the
Pacific Coast Packer tells of the
work of the original Johnny Ap
pleseed :
Washington. D. C, Nov. 11.
The Chamber of Commerce at Ft.
Wayne, Ind., has instructed a
committee to locate, mark and
make accessible to the public the
grave of Johnny Appleseed. This
action on the part of the business
men of Fort Wayne arouses public
interest again in a man whom Sec
retary Sherman once described as
"one of the most striking figures
this republic has ever produced."
In 1847 a representative from
Ohio on the floor of the House of
Representatives announced the
death of "an old man who has
done more for the west than any
other man of his era.". He al
luded to John Chapman. popular
ly and affectionately known as
Johnny Appleseed, who planted
orchards and nurseries in the
wilderness? of Ohio and Indiana in
advance of civilization.
Meager knowledge of Johnny
Appleseed rests chiefly on tradi
tion and legend. He was born
in Springfield, Mass., in 1775, the
year the embattled farmers stood
by the rude, bridge and "fired the
shot heard around the world."

Johnny's half-sister, who went
west long after he did, said that
when he was a boy he was fond of
nature. He loved the flowers and
the birds 'and the animals, and
on summer nights he would lie on
hi3 back for hours gazing up into
the starry heavens.
Why Chapman left his native
state to . wander in the western
wilderness is one of the mysteries
of his life. It has been a fertile
but futile subject of speculation
for generations among poets, nov
elists and historians. A tradition
says it was disappointed love
which drove him from his neigh
bors and friends and relatives in
the Old Bay states, and this belief
has the very faint support in the
fact that Chapman never married.
He appeared as a wanderer in
the valley of the Potomac in 17D9.
The following summer he was in
western Pennsylvania. One day
in the fall of 1800 a woman liv
ing on the banks of the Ohio river
near Steubenville saw a crazy
looking craft floating down the
stream. It consisted of two ca
noes lashed together, heavily load
ed with bags and piloted by a
barefooted, oddly dressed man
wearing a broad-brimmed hat.
It -was John Chapman with a
cargo of apple seeds, which he had
gathered from the cider presses of
Pennsylvania. He 'told the wom
an he was on his way into the wil
derness to plant nurseries ln ad
vance of the pioneers. "My mis
sion in life," he told her, "is to
have apple trees ready for the set
tlers' when they come."

IT BETTER.
HI NOT LARGER
The Growers With Good Fruit
Are Entitled to Have
Protection
Editor Statesman:
Replying to your request to
give my views on how. to make
the apple industry bigger and bet
ter. Let lis not make it bigger,
if anything, smaller, as it is much
too big now. There ishowever,
ample cause and reason for mak
ing It better. Orchards that are
not being taken care of by non
resident owners, let us have these
done away 'with, as they are a
menace to orchards that are being
cared for. For the resident who
likewise does not take care of his
orchard and will sell his junk
fruit and demoralize the market
for the man who tries to raise
good fruit, let these orchards like
wise be done away with, as the
man who spends his money and
labor trying to produce quality
frirtt is entitled to a legitimate
profit on the same.
For Cooperative Marketing
I believe in cooperative market
ing. 11 a selling organization
could be perfected that would
have the interest of the grower at
heart, this would go a long way
towards making the apple indus
try better, giving the owner or the
grower a fair return on his in
vestment, labor and. fruit, instead
CHIROPRACTIC FOR
DIABETES
Diabetes is an effect. ' Eliml
nate the CAUSE and the effect
will vanish. Chiropractic is the
Science- of the Cause. The
Chiropractor locates the cause
of your trouble with a Nenro
calometer and adjusts It by re
lieving the nerve pressure,
which is almost sure to be
present, and the effect has dis
appeared. You can avoid Dia
betes if you keep yonr spine in
order. This seems too good to
be true, but it is a proven fact.
See your Chiropractor and take
Adjustments according to a
Neurocalometer reading.
