In California, Washington.5 Or
egon, Missouri, Idaho, New york
and many other States relentless
-warfare has been waged by fac
tional strife in both the. Republi
can and Democratic parties, and
many partisans express grave
fear that eternal ruin is at hand.
Perhaps this view may be just
ifiable, when taken from a parti
san standpoint, but when we
realize that in all of these States
railroad manipulation, boodle,
land frauds, licentiousness and
vice have taken precedence over
patriotism and good government
we begin to feel that it is but an
awakening of that just retribu-
tion that is i,ure to come an 1 pur-

The much advertised circus
aggregation that is "doing" Or
egon in more ways than one un
der a name which once stood
for excellence and fair dealing,
is just now getting quite a roast
from the press of the state for
its gratuitous insult to said press
in the shape of a proposition to
extend the "usual courtesies"1
(which means two 4-bit tickets)
ine xchange for about $10 worth
of advertising. Some years ago,
when this show was owned and
managed by the parties whose
names are now used as a trade
mark, the press was liberally
recognized and paid a fair price
for its services in giving the
show publicity. But now it is
very different. And, strange to
say, there are. many editors even
in Oregon who value their own
advertising space so cheaply that
they jump at the bait and donate
advertising to a concern that
is of no possible benefit to the
community, and carries away
many thousand of its dollars.
When newspaper men cheapen
the value of their own space by
such fool breaks -they should not
complain if their home patrons
place a like valuation upon it,

oer the valley to find a place he
liked better than Corvallis, but
he has decided it could not be

men. He could not stand it to
see Whiteside & Cooper behind
the counter in the old stand
where he did a nice little busi
ness so long, and hence walked
in with his check and told them
to step out. . He is now ready to
meet his old friends once more
and give them a cordial wel
come. Success to you, Mr. Ber
man. Where Shall it be Held?
There seems to be some differ
ence of opinion as to whether
the AU-Benton fair shall be held
down on the flat near Mary's
river or on Second street. Some
question has arisen as to wheth

that is sure 'to be in attendance

Let our business men. and ibe

occur to. mar the -pleasant rela

not the intention or desire of the
committee to be arbitrary in the
matter nor do they ' care N to as
sume all the responsibility. Let
it be placed where it will do the
most good to the greatest num
ber and then let us see to it that

; : APPLE, CULTURE.
Keeping Quality of Fruit Grown In
Sod or Under Tillage.
Here is a question, often asked at
fruit growers' meetings, as answered
In part by H. W. C. in Rural New
Torker: "Is it true that apples grown
In sod have better keeping quality than
those grown under tillage?"
No one seems to say yes or jjo with
out qualification. My own experienc
indicates that the cultivated apples are
larger. lighter in color and less firao
than those grown in sod. My sod fruli
will certainly average smaller and con
Biderably higher in color. Our onlj
keeping test is that of putting all to
gtether in an ordinary cellar, as we sell
most of our fruit early. From this
test I feel sure that the sod apples are
better keepers. In commercial apple
culture this does not make so much
difference, as most apples are put at
once into cold storage and kept there
until sold. -Scientific
A large number of scientific experi
ments have been conducted with vary.
Ing results. There is a certain definite
time beyond which apples should not
be in storage. After this period the
sod fruit keeps best. The sod fruit
matures earlier than the cultivated
and if picked at the same time is a
little higher colored. This high colored
matured fruit of course keeps better
than immature fruit, especially with
the earlier varieties, like Wealthy,
Alexander and Fameuse. These vari
eties undoubtedly keep better when
grown on sod land than fruit from
tilled land picked at the same time,
Where the latter was allowed to grow
longer there Is not much difference.
In commercial orcharding I think more
depends on other things, such as pick
Ing and handling. No matter how the
pple is grown, bruising and rou.
handling will hurt the fruit.
