Methods of Control Explained
Frank Doerfler Outlines
Three Ways Which Can
The growth and extension of
- Canadian thistles throughout
many sections of Marion county
has been observed recently by Cir
- cult Jndge McMahan who recently
brought to the attention of The
Statesman this condition and the
necessity for immediate attention
The Judge cited Chapter 27 of
the general laws of Oregon pass.
4 In the 1927 session which pro
Tides that the county court of
each county may establish weed
control districts and may ap
point a weed inspector whose duty
It shall be to find out if noxious
weeds or plants are growing. If
such is found to be the case the
law prorides that the weed Inspec
tor shall serve notices on the par
ties upon whose land the weeds
are growing and demand that- tne
weeds be cut If this 1s not done
the weed Inspector is empowered
. to destroy the weeds and to as
"aess the costs to the land on which
the weeds grow.
Farmer Mast Help
''Canadian thistles are a men-
act to the agricultural develop
ment of the county" declared
Judge McMahan. "I think farm
ers should take every means aval
able to see that they are de
Frank Doerfler, agricultural
agent of the First National bank
here, at the request of the States
man made several pertinent sug
gestions about the control and ex
termination of thistles, Mr. Doerf
ler said this week:
There are several remedies for
killing Canadian thistles. In or
chards or open land that can be
cultivated tbe best and cheapest
way to kill taem Is by cultivation.
There are a great many people
who doubt the killing of thistles
Ay cultivation. I have completely
killed many patches In the Waldo
hills and can name many reliable
farmers who have done the same."
Doerfler's recommendations for
control are: Scrape patches of
thistles every five days with a
merry-go-round fern scraper or a
kimble cutting four-inches under
the ground. If this practice is fol
, lowed during the growing season
the farmer will find very few
thistles shown the next year.
Many farmers, according to Doerf
ler, try this method but in a very
busy season they . let things slip
with the result that the entire
value of this method of killing the
thistles Is lost. When the thistles
peep through the ground after
this treatment which is not kept
np they get light and thrive;
cutting the thistles persistently
below the ground keeps the light
way and insures their death.
Dr. Doerfler gave as a second
method of control the seeding of
alfalfa and cutting it three times
-a year with the result that the
A third remedy Doerfler out
lines is to handle the thistles with
sprays. County Agent White of
Yamhill county has made many
tests and says he has destroyed
many patche3. White claims that
where thistles are thick it will
cost 40 an acre for the spray.
Dr. Doerfler was of the belief this
week that MO would pay for the
destruction of thistles on several
acres when the cultivation method
Thistles grown in pastures that
are rocky or brushy and which
cannot be plowed makes the mat
ter of cultivation out of the ques
tion. Here the feasible method would
seem to be to fence the lands
tight and to put In a large bunch
of goats that have been underfed,
to eat the thistles. If the land
Is left in pasture with a heary sod,
the thistles can be destroyed so
they are scarcely noticeable, says

Eight Years of Work by
Del Harrington- Have
STAYTON, Sept. 13 A new
berry that is meeting with instant
popularity, both as a fresh fruit
for table nse and also for Jam
and Jelly, is on the market here
this year for the first time. It is
an improved blackberry and the
creation of Del Harrington, who
lires east of town.
He has been working on this
berry for the past eight years,
and has 14 of the original Tines.
He has set out 1100 new plants
which will, when they begin to
bear, furnish many hundred
pounds of the luscious fruit. He
has registered his berry under the
name. "Del Sweet," which is in
deed fitting as the berry are 10
to 20 per cent sweeter than other
blackberries. Their sugar, test Is
10:45. There is no core In the
berries, few seeds, and what there
are are small.
They hare a most delicious fla
ror. Mr. Harrington is supplying
some to the cannery here this
year where they are experiment,

the erergreen black berry which
the cannery buys by the ton each
