r Tk Naw' Water Svstem at Grants Pass
STARTING with one of the worst water supplies in the
state, Grants Pass has secured one of the best, in less
than a year's time, without political controversy or litigation,
and at a moderate cost to the consumer and taxpayer. The
authority for that statement is John W. Cunningham of the
linn of Baar and Cunningham, engineers, who had charge of
the improvements at Grants Pass after the city acquired
thm nit: It is nart of the oDenine paragraph of an article
'wrfHan hv Mr. Cunninorham i n "Western Construction
News" on the Grants Pass situation. Further excerpts are:
"In the past Grants Pass nas been aiaamea ot ntm
eept lta water supply. The inferiority became more apparent
r " when the neishborinf cities f Ashland and Medford improred
thir supplies. Grants Pas was served by a water cempany in
pfivate -ownership. The source of supply was the Rogue rlTer,
snfcject-fto bacterial contamination, very muddy at times, and
""full or taste-forming alsae growths. The iatake was Impertect
T screened, and the only treatment, chlorine sterilisation.
That in nart naralells the Salem situation; only the wat
ijf now being supplied is both pure and potable and reas
onably free from the chlorine taste and odor. Here is the
paragraph dealing with the determination to continue taking
water from the Kogue:
, "Engineering studies covered all possible sources of water.
t Weli possibilities were found doubtful, and did not Justify cost-
I ly experimental drilling. Gravity supplies would require extreme
jly long pipelines, and werw complicated by Irrigation and min
ting water rights. The Rogue river offered ample -water, of ex
t cellent chemical Quality, but requiring filtration to give a sat
p i lsfactory municipal -supply. The reconstructed plant included a
b w rtlHtlAn and nnmnloa nlant."
I ; Once again there is the striking parallel. Wells here are
an uncertain source of supply; gravity supplies "would re
ttbire long pipe-lines," and irrigation rights and mining de-

That is the largest grafted wal
nut orchard in Oregon in Individ
ual ownership. It is the best or
chard of lta kind in the Pacific
northwest, if not any where in
the world. Likely the latter Is the
true atatemestt. It has had tne
most nearly 100 per cent perfect
attention throughout Its life, now
approaching near to Its SO year.

one of the best sections of one ot

valleys la all the world.

Six years ago,' Mr. Adams se
cured from Joan Berren, nursery
man, 41 year-old grafted Fran
quette walnut trees and planted
them 64 feet apart In his SO acre
tract, taking; out every third cher
ry or peach tree. That makes his
walnut trees seven years old. He
harvested a few walnuts la 19 SI;
not enough to giro much of a
showing. Last year he got 18
pounds, and this year the harvest
yielded 18S pounds.
Be thinks that Is perhaps a
record percentage of increase for
such young trees from 18 to 18
pounds. The reader may figure it
out for himself. Mr. Adams ex
pects to get a half ton next year.
