APPROPOS THE ELECTION
Mr. E. P. Smith, the wide
awake editor of our horticultural
department, has suggested that
the orvhardists and fanners of
eastern Multnomah and northern
Clackamas counties hold an an
nual fruit fair and carnival at
Gresham, offering to head the
list of subscriptions toward a
prize fund for the encourage
ment of growing better fruit in
the district mentioned.
This is certainly a move in the
right direction, for we believe,
with many others, that as good
fruit can be grown in this vicin
ity as any place under the sun.
In fact, the truth of this state
ment has already been proven in
Hood River. Mosier and White
Salmon, and similar fruit from
east and west of the Sandy, in
Clackamas and several orchards
in eastern Multnomah.
We defy the world to produce
a cleaner, more perfect, or bet
ter tasted apple than some of
the samples left on the editor’s
desk. Conditions, of course,
can be bettered. A more thor
ough system of spraying, prun
ing and cultivation should be
adopted and the business men of
the country should do all pos
sible to assist in the chance, and
at the same time encourage the
movement for an annual fruit
As also suggested by Mr.
Smith this properly comes under
tne head of Grange work, and
we hope to hear of its discussion
at the next meeting of the Po
mona Grange. Let every farm
