GOOD FRUIT NOT COSTLY.
Small Outlay Will Eradicate Cod:n
Moth and Other Pes!s.
Milwaukie J. 11. Keii, cf this
place, who has made a clce study of
sprays for codlin moth and fruit pests,
believes that wormy apple are not
necessary, and that it is possible lor
aU who raise fruit to keep it free from
eodlin moth or other petts. Contrary
to the supposition that the cost of
spraying is exceeeive, Mr. P.eid gives
some figures to show that spraying is
Mr. Eeid cites the apple orchard of
Mark Levy, at Milwaukie, who had a
total of 300 boxes of apples and pear.
Each time he sprayed it tock 18 hours
There were two men employed at a
cost cf $9, one team at o, and cost cf
material was $10, making tbe total
cost $26. This was lees than e ' cents
per box. A great many of Mr. Levy's
tree are young and not in full bearing,
and for that reason tht cost for spray
ing was larger than it would have been
had the trees been in full bearing.
"In a large orchard like that of Mil
lard O. LowDsdale, in Y'amhiil coun
ty," said Mr. Beid. "the cost would
not be more than 4 to 6 certs j-er box
lor spraying. When tbe spraying is
properly done the grower does not have
more than eight or ten per ce.it lots
from worms." '
Salem Has New Industry.
Sa'em Tbe only sienna paint fac
tory on the Pacifie coast and one of
the few in tbe United States, is now in
operation in Salem. A complete out-!
fit of grinding, lifting and mixing ma
chinery baa been inttalltd, but the
demand for tbe product already indi
cates that the plant will have to be
duplicated. Tbe factory is being oper
ated on material shipped from the si
enna deposits discoverd a year or twoH
ago south of Eugene, in Lane county.
At the deposits cover an area of 62
acre to a depth of 50 feet, there is
plenty of material to supply the factory
for a number of years.
leeta have proved that the Lane
county deposits are of at high grade at
tbe Italian tienna and it hat been
demonstrated that the Oregon material
can be placed upon the market in com
petition with the imported article.

Admiral Skrydloff, commander of
the Black sea fleet, and the military
commander here are very apprehensive
regarding the attitude of the sailors cf
the fleet and the garrison of the (ort
ress. The cruise ol the training sqnad
ron as well as the regular neet maneu
vers have been postponed, the ships
scarcely venturing beyond the range ol
the guns of the fortress.
The military patrols of the city have
been withdrawn inside the walls of
tbe fort, due, it is said, to the fear that
the soldiers w ill be corrupted by con
tact aith the masses.
The merchants of this city have prac
tically been thrown on their own re
sources in tbe matter of protection
from lawlessness. The governor, st a
recent meeting, advised them to organ
ice their own guard, as soldiers could
no longer be spared fir police duty and
tbe municipality is bankrupt.

General Menoral said today that

is, however, that (tuerrera refuse
point blank to accept an armistice ei
cept on condition that the last presi

be annulled. That the government
should consent to this is out cf tt e
question, and tonight prospects point,
to a continuance ol the war.

mus in November,
Washington, Sept. S Arrangement
are in progress for the trip of President
Iloosevelt to tb Isthmus of Panama

tion of the canal work and reach here
before congress convenes December 3.
That the j iurney may be made safely
and expeditiously, tbe Navy depart
ment will provide three warships.
(Mailed plans have not b-n com
pleted, but il is lik ley that the presi
dent, Secretary Tall, and other guest
will occupy a tirst class battleship, the
members ol the Canal commission an
other, and newspaper representatives a
third, which is to be a cruiser.

party to make the trip in comlort, give
them healthy accommodations while on
the isthmus and iacidentally provide
against the possibility of delay through
accident to any of the ships.
