Spraying System Developed
By OAC Experiment Station
Nationally Used Says Expert
PORTLAND, Ore., May IT. The
combination syray system developed
at the Oregon experiment station In
1908 It now the basis of the spray
ing practice of the entire country,
acordlne to V. I. Safro, field man
ager of the Tobacco By-products ft
Chemical company of Louisville,
"Prior to that time the elements
of labor were smaller factors In
economy of application than now,
and the Importance of the time ele
ment date of application and per
iod within which spraying must be
finished to be fully effective was
not appreciated at Its full value,''
he said. "Hence sprays were applied
one at a time at such Intervals as
could be planned tor. It was not at
all nnusual," Mr, Safro points out,
"for a grower to spray as many as
four different spray materials for
four different Insect or disease
Lack of Economy Sensed.
"The gross lack of economy In this
practice was sensed by the Oregon
Agricultural College station entomol
ogists and plant patholibists, who
began Investigations of the possible
ltles of combining two or more of
these sprays and putting them on at
a single application. While even at
'that time the saving In labor was
'considerable, it has become since
that time one ot the main elements
of spraying costs.
"The most important reason why
tomblnations were valuable In cer
tain cases was that unless the spray
was applied at the right time In the
right way for the known trouble, It
was likely to prove of little or ho

Geo. E. Sackett
Buried Monday at
Ml View Cemetery
The remains of George Edwin
.Sackett, who died Saturday at tbe
borne of his son, Dewey W, Sackett
were burled yesterday at the Moun-
lain View cemetery. Funeral ser-
" vices were held at tbe Stock under
taking parlors, Rev. C, F. Koehler
George Edwin Sackett was born
at Volney, Oswego county, N, Y in
the year 1851. His mother died
when he was about 5 years of age.
Three years later bis father went
to the gold fields of California and
never returned. His boyhood days
were spent in the town of his birth,
where limited conditions made it
possible tor him to recelve'only
such an education as winter terms as
the district school afforded.
- In 1869, having determined to
join his father who was then en
gaged In mining at Downevllie,
Sierra county, Cal he took steamer
at New York on Dec. 2 of, that
year, went by the Panama route and
in due time reached his destination,
and there engaged with his foth-r
1n placer mining until Nov., 1872.
He then followed lumbering for
several months, after which he went
to Murphy's Calaverus Co., Cal., and
again engaged in mining. Here on!
Feb. 19, 1878, he was married to
Rebecca Ann Ellis. In 1892 with
his sons he removed to Ashland,
Ore., where he resided until the
time of his death, Saturday, May 14,
Three children wera born to Mr.
Sackett, of whom only one remains,

vals were short and troubles numer

the best possibilities for getting the
syraps all on within the vital period.'
"The first nicotine, lime-sulphur,
lead-arsenate spray combination ever
successfully used was worked out at
the Oregon Agricultural College
station," declared Mr. Safro. -"The
combination - practice reached its
hlghwater mark, at least for many
years, three years later at the Hood
River branch station, when Iron sul
phld was added to the other mate
rials." '

The first plant In which the lime
sulphur, lead-arsenate combination
was ever mixed on a commercial
scale was pointed out by Mr. Safro
as still In use on the station grounds.
The fact that lime-sulphur was
brought Into large use as a fungicide
under Dr. A. B. Cordley, now dean
of agriculture, was also observed.
"And now," said Mr. Safro, "lime
sulphur alone and in combination
worked out here 13 years ago is In
general use all over the United
States as well as In many districts
ot Australia, New Zealand, SoutH
Africa, parts of Europe and China
and Japan.
"In consequence of their ploneei
work In sprays and spraying the sta
tlon specialists are held as final au
thott'y on many questions conned
ed with the manufacture and nse ot
lead arsenate and combination
. "Wherever spray makers an
users meet In convention, the Ore
gon men are quoted as determining
factors," Mr. Safro declared.

' Possibilities Offered Private Interests
With the ground just south of

mer tourists there is speculation
among local business men as to
the possibility of a self support
ing Chamber of Commerce by
means ot the revenue derived from
the renting of the tents or cot

tbe Chamber ot Commerce Is limit
ed only by the tourist demand for

for the promotion ot a tent city.,

ment. The possibilities ot such an

fact that the tent city would pay

Ashlund Is trying to got its money's
worth ot electric current by keeping
the streamer lights on Main, street
burning at night. For the past two
weeks these Iglhts have been lighted
lights wero dark. Inquiry brought
out the following facts. ,
The city Is paying a minimum elec
tric light bill of $600 a mouth to
the Cnllfornlii-Oregon Power com
pany with the provision that all cur
rent used to exceed that amount will
be paid for at the usual rates. Be
cause ot the unusual heavy rains this
yeur, Mayor Lamkln stales, the
local power plant owned by the city,
given tho Increased power from the
mountain torrents, has been able to
generate more electric current tor
tho city's use than might ordinarily
be expected. Henco the city has
been paying for more current than
It was able to use.
During the past few months ac
cording to figures obtained at the
city recorder's office the actus
amount of current used by the cltv
averages around $300 or $350 :
month. Hut because tbe minimum
of $1100 must be paid to the California-Oregon
Power company the city
will burn the streamer street lights
to effect a closer check of tbe two
Items. Mayor Lsmkin said that It
had been the custom ot the city In
past years to burn the streamer lights
during the summer months although
this year they had been lighted later
than usual.
The ndviaulillity nf the city install
ing a larger power plant, thereby
eliminating the existing condition of
electric light supply was suggested
to Mayor Lsmkin. He stated that
the water power necessary for such
a plant was not reliable enough.
wiium vn ti'ucmrui um mm uiinuri
ordinary seasons the power from that
source would not be sufficient for
the city's use.
Under the present plan the California-Oregon
Power company and
the city electric power plant co
operate in supplying electric current
for the use of the city.
